Even before I had recieved Nausicaa I started looking for a friend for her. I'd been keeping my eye on a few girls on ebay and this one particular girl had been relisted 3 times so I thought, yes, she's the one!
Actually Kirsche was near the top of my list, along with Grell... but I think I like Kirsche's blue eyes more, I just love Grell's stock outfit and accessories.
Again, it was a nude doll but I wasn't bothered. I wanted to make my girls clothes anyway.
Shortly after I had recieved Nausicaa I recieved Kirsche and its taken me ages to choose a name for her.
Out of the following I chose Larke.
Paprika: like the spice!?
Keelin/Keelia: Celtic for Slender or Comely
Larke: from the meadow bird, middle english
Alika: Hawaiian, a variant of the name Alice,
Sassa: Swedish, Pet form of the name Sara in
Sweden, derived from the Hebrew meaning
Sorcha: Gaelic, meaning "radiant."
Pearl: Latin, taken from the name of the gem
produced by mollusks. The name Pearl
is frequently used in the bible as a
metaphor for a thing of value.
Larke stood out to me more than any of the others, it seemed more lady-like and somehow it fits for me.
My only concern about the type 3 body was that I read that the hands break easily. I thought it'll be ok, I'll just be extra gentle... and it still broke.
I would like to get her an replacement body but I can't afford it yet... I've been checking out body comparisons and the best one I've found is on flickr by Bbabaa ...
|Volks EB Beauty, Volks Neo-EB Teens, Obitsu Hardbust|
I'm very tempted by the Volks Neo-EB Teens. It seems more flexible than the other body.
I've personally found that the type 3 body upper-body twists, where as the type 4 doesn't. I'm now wondering about a replacement body for both of them... I'll have to start saving!!!
The wig nets arrived and were the wrong size, too big. I will remember for next time, I'm far too impatient to way, I want to start wig making!!! I'll keep you posted!
Still no luck with the camera, oh yeah, I do have it now, but no-body knows where the lead is... It's a sony so it will have a 'special' lead... I think I'll just purchase a card reader, it will probably be easier and cheaper than buying a new cable. Hopefully next time I'll have some pictures for you!
