I had been complaining that I wanted more dolls. Because I wanted to give them names, personalites, build stories around them.

I tried with two porcelain dolls I had, Cosette and She-Didn't-Really-Get-A-Name-but-sometimes-I-called-her-Margaret (with whom I had some random fun before, as can be seen here and here)... but their feathery hats kept loosing feathers everywhere and making me sneeze. It was a hassle and I soon gave up.
Regardless, I liked the name Cosette.

Anyway, on Thursday night, I was given this little doll as a belated birthday gift:

According to the gifter, she's supposed to be a mini me of sorts. Granted, not because of the skintone, but... pretty much just the hair.

Given the place where she was purchased and her packaging, I think she's meant to be a knock off version of Ddung Dolls.

I'm not too happy with her mouth or her dress (I like the legwarmers though!), so that's bound to keep me entertained for some time...
I'll have to start with the name.
Mood: sicksick

And yes, I realize... so much of the dolly-lust is probably my fault T____T;; gomen.

I think Margaret is a great name. And you can claim they're steampunk or something. Feathery hats and all.

Also, your knock-off Ddung is cute, I wonder what other doll clothes you could steal for her, like kelly/shelly or if she's bigger or something...

And if you really her her mouth, you could try scraping it off and repainting it >____>;;

Finally... who has a mac? Do you have a mac? There is a apple symbol in that picture...

Ahaha, I do. :) At work I use a mac. At home I'm all PC ^^; But this weekend I had to bring it home with me because I have some stuff to do.
I took her picture on it because I didn't have any decent background's around, and didn't want to use a wrinkled bedsheet ._.

You do foster dolly-lust but it's perfectly healthy, so no need to apologise ^^ It's a world I'm so glad to be a part of!

Shelly! What a wonderful idea you just had, I forgot I had one. I'll have to dig her up and see if her dress fits this doll. ^_^

As for the mouth, that's what I thought of doing! Probably doing just a little dot like the actual Ddung. But I'll leave that for last, to make sure I don't screw up. -_-;
