Dear Doll Lovers and Followers –
I haven’t posted in ages. I had hoped to finish up Midge’s wedding as a sort of season finale for the West Enders, but instead, I’ve left the story dangling. I had to go to Germany for a couple of weeks as part of my other scientist persona and I have a number of PhD students with looming deadlines that are keeping me pretty much completely occupied at the moment. As a result, I’ve had no time for my doll obsession except to add new dolls, rebody old dolls, and work a little bit on the beach house. I’m afraid I’m going to have to leave the West Enders until the next season starts in the autumn. Here’s a few photos from my phone shots so you can see what I’ve been doing.
Noa has a new body and a haircut.
Sam has a new brother! Meet Jamie, a wonderful OOAK doll from Euphoria Dolls on Etsy.
Jamal’s twin sisters, Chrisandra and Michelle, have new M2M bodies so we may be seeing more of them.
I’m still tinkering with the beach house. That’s Kevin’s brother Alistair downstairs and Katie with yet another M2M body. I’ve been doing a lot of swapping.
Katie loves being able to pose! She has the new Pink Top M2M’s body, which is much darker than the original. Bonnie is in the background with the original body.
I’ve covered Deangelo’s plastic hair with flocking (and his tee shirt, alas).
Marvin has new flocked hair and some jazzy facial hair. I’ve ordered a new Steven – wait until you see his hair!
This stunning Greek beauty has arrived – Ariadne Kostopoulos is her name.
Sitting here with Charlotte is Hanna Haywood, another yogi. I bought her to rebody Katie and her skin tone has changed completely from the original blue top M2M doll. I was gobsmacked when she arrived. Charlotte has her old body – look at the difference. The new pink top M2M dolls also have much darker bodies than the originals. Buyer beware! Since nobody else needing a body had Hanna’s skin tone, I decided to keep her.
Rikki is learning how to be a DJ. The younger dolls should have a party when the new season begins.
And most of the dolls are doing what they do best – partying! I hope everyone is having a great summer and I’ll post more new arrivals next month. The West Enders will resume for Season Two in the autumn.
