Apparently, teenagers should be left to sleep in until 9 a.m...
Mirwen gets to wear her sleepy-face;
Her pretty face-up is by Angel Toast.
I decided to put her on the SID body which I had hybrided for Elfdoll June. The top of the neck had been sanded down to a smaller dome, and I managed to swap the S-hook for the Fairyland neck connector without too much trouble - I simply removed the feet first, which then allowed me to pull out the tension elastic from the top of the neck.
Attached the connector, re-attached the feet, and presto! Mirwen has a tall, elegant Iplehouse SID body!
I think it suits her mature face much better than the Feeple60 body, which is cute but in a rather more anime style than the Iplehouse body.
Somehow, those of us in the BJD hobby have a tendency to collect "spare parts" which haven't quite achieved the effect we wanted in our dolls.
But eventually, the perfect doll comes along for those parts... or should that be - we find the perfect parts for our new dolls in our stash of spare parts?
Mirwen is a Feeple60 sculpt from Fairyland, and I had her in a dark brown wig and lovely blue eyes when I first got her - and she did look lovely. But those of us in this hobby know that we can never leave it at that...
Anyway, Mirwen has now found herself with lovely silvery gray eyes from Soom (Gray Eclipse) and curly hair (Monique wig Ellowyne-Rose in "Ginger Brown").
These had never looked quite right on other dolls. But now? Perfection.
For now, anyway.
I love her "dewy" new look...
