The West Enders: Interlude

The West Enders are undergoing a reshuffle. Some of the characters have left and others have joined. I am hoping for a real blog post soon – the fate of Bigly and his minions! While I am working on that, I thought I would post a few photos from behind the scenes of the village.

First, let’s meet some of the new characters!

Albus Brewer is the father of the Brewer brothers.

Annie Daley is the youngest of the Daley sisters.

Azumi Ito is a model; sister of the Japanese spy, Asuka Ito, who we met in Season Three. Asuka has since returned to Japan.

Dalpinder Chowdhury is sure to set the ladies’ hearts beating.

David Benvenuto is a rehomed doll from Shereese Nicole on Facebook, aka J, the owner of Etsy shop, Deztination J:

Daya Darwish is a fabulous OOAK doll from Madame Bu’s shop on Etsy:

Ingrid Dahlberg is a Swedish film star joining our acting troupe. She’s a OOAK doll from Salem City Dolls:

Mairi MacDonald and Eddie Oldhead are two OOAK dolls from The Foxy Dolls on Etsy:

Mairi is the mother of sisters Merida and Luna MacDonald. Merida is played by a new OOAK doll, also from Salem City Dolls.

Raheem Majak is ready for school.

Mizuki Yamaguchi is a new Momoko doll, “Moonless Night.” I photographed her in black and white before unwrapping her from the cling film that encase new Momoko dolls to prevent clothing stains. Unwrapping was, as usual, a nightmare. She’s quite an edgy girl here, but I’ve dressed her for autumn and meeting her new friends.

Mizuki and Chiyo meet in the café.

Momoko, Yuki, and Scarlett in the queue.

Himari and Akiko in the queue.

Then I started thinking about boyfriends for the lasses. Himari, Momoko, and Scarlett have boyfriends, but poor Yuki has been very unlucky in love, Akiko never goes out, and Chiyo was being chatted up by Momoko’s brother Takashi at the music festival last time we saw her.

Yuki and Dae-jung? He’s a OOAK V doll from Studio Tate on Etsy:

Is his twin brother Jaehyung a good match for Mizuki?

He’s a OOAK V repaint from Pink Doll Art on Etsy:

And finally, what about poor Akiko, always at Salynda’s beck and call? Is Jimin the lad for her?

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think of these possible matches! Nothing is set in stone at the moment. And do stay tuned to learn the fate of Bigly, Rosa, Alexa, and Melanie… November 3rd is approaching!

Finally, I want to say a huge thank you to Lauralyn Williams of Nandi’s Daughters dolls, who gifted me this gorgeous girl. She won’t join the West Enders as she’s a display doll but she’s enjoying life with the dolls in my bedroom.
