Too late, I put the neck part on!! It was easy, I didn't have to restring. Now the body is all ready even though I haven't bought the head yet.
I paid! He's being shipped tomorrow!! :D :D :D Now to figure out my name dilemma....
I know a lot of people have negative opinions on Resinsoul, but I really do love my Song.
He's not that orange irl >.<
Mocha is making me rethink a couple of my dolls right now. He does that every once in a while. I've sold off all the dolls in his "Storyline" and then given him a whole new one. I completely changed his look, something that, at the time, I only did with him successfully. He's hung around while I've sold off many dolls more expensive and sought-after than he is. He's just one of those dolls that always makes me happy.
Recently I added two dolls to his little group of one, and today a third (no, no one new) and now I think a few of my character/dolls are getting renamed and possibly revamped.
First there is Mir, my Unoa L-bi. I don't have a problem with him, though I kind of don't like his wig...but he has a wig somewhere....I got it in a group order but the person still has it. So eventually he might get a better wig, but until then I'm not happy with the one he's got. Mir is supposed to be a Unicorn, and still will be, his name just might not be Mir anymore.
Then there is Vanilla, or 'Nilla, my Dollmore U-Jee. Same thing for him, but not as drastic. Slight name change.
Soshi is the one I'm really having a problem with, and the funny thing is, I don't even have him.
Soshi my (former) MNF Shiwoo, and the one I hope to replace if I can get a head (still no one will sell me one!!). When I owned him the first time around he was a cat demon, with ears, eyes and a tail, in crazy red fur (well not his eyes, but you know what I mean). I'd like to update his look with more colors and a different style, but he was still going to be Soshi, just taller and more masculine.
Though now I'm having all sorts of second thoughts. I still want a Shiwoo, but since I haven't been successful in getting one I keep changing my mind...and Mirwen or Tika would work pretty damn well for what I want. Too bad I can't get either of them either.
The biggest problem (you would think the lack of a head would be my biggest problem, but no), is that I am leaning toward unifying all these dolls with "themed" names...
Since I started out by stating how much I loved Mocha, you might be able to guess what theme I'd like to go with....
COFFEE!! YAY FOR FOOD NAMES!
COFFEE!! YAY FOR FOOD NAMES!
Vanilla is the easiest of the group to rename, he's just going to be Vanilla Spice (which happens to be my most favorite drink.....Starbucks, Y U NO BRING IT BACK?!). I was going to go with Vanilla Spice Latte, but the LTF Rose full set I recently got and was already considering selling suddenly became Latte. It works so well with her hair and colors, and since she has crazy future/steampunk accessories and looks so much older than my other YO sized tinies, I think she'll fit in with this doll group perfectly as a bunny, since the others are all animals too (Vanilla is a cat, Mocha is a Kangaroo Rat (I don't know why, he just looks like one to me) Soshi was also a cat, Mir is a Unicorn). I like her so much better already lol and all I did was name her and move her in my doll list XD
So now I have Mocha, Vanilla Spice and Latte (delicious!!), but poor Mir needs a new name. I really like Cinnamon Dulce Frappucino, which is perfect for him, very fluffy and sweet-sounding and I could call him Frapp or Dulce. Buuuuut I'm used to calling him Mir. Wherein lies my problem. I really like Frapp, so I might try it out.
Frapp? Dulce?? Who are you?! Good thing he cutes. And this is so old.... I redid his faceup and painted the horn and he's got more face plates and different eyes now.....lol I'm so fail.
Soshi is an issue for me because of his name. Waaay back in the day when I got him I didn't know what to do with him so I just started looking up Japanese names. I didn't really like Soshi, but found myself calling him that in my head and it stuck in a huge way.
Aw Sosh....I do regret selling him.
Probably more than any other doll I've sold....I'll never get him back, not really. He was my first trade, when I sold my first doll (my third doll, I sold my third doll, not first. It was just the first doll I sold), and I drove two hours to get him, then two hours back and straight to a doll meet where he was immediately the star.
His tail is gone....torn apart to make Jean her wig (no regrets. I love that wig), and IF I ever get another Shiwoo (or Tika or Mirwen head) I'll be tearing this wig apart to make him a new one with a few more colors in a less poofy style.
Renaming him will be so hard to do, but maybe with a whole new doll it won't be so bad, even if in my head the character is pretty much the same just in a different story now.
I've been thinking of calling him (assuming I ever get one!!!! FUCKING HELL WHY IS IT SO DAMN HARD TO GET A FREAKING HEAD?!?!?!?!? *cough*) Double-Shot Esspresso, DSE, or Dese/Des for short. Or Java Chip. I like Java, but maybe for another doll (I don't need). Des is a good name. I think I tried naming another doll Des before and it didn't work out...
Other coffee names I have courtesy of Starbucks:
Carmel Macchiato (a favorite)
Pumpkin Spice (my other favorite drink, and PUMPKIN!! Pumpkins are one of my favorite things! That was awful grammar....)
Obviously I am not getting enough dolls to take up those names, but I was thinking of adding another 1/4 tan RS boy to the group, and maybe if one of my other tinies has an identity crisis, another one of those. I love Circus, Jethro and Ebils, but they don't really do anything....maybe then need to be moved too. Ebils would make a good Peppermint, he's red, white and black already....
Now I have to go look at all my unused dolls and see if any of them feel like changing storylines XD
omg what am I doing?!
Here's Vanilla just because he's the only one I didn't post pics of. I think I put this up before (and all the others too, I just don't have anything new). I'm thinking of changing his eyes out too....I might have a look in the old eye box to see what I gots.
In other news (I know, I wrote a book already. Shut up.), my DF Practice head from MOC is waiting at home for me. I got Milliput over the weekend....so I am ready to mod my heads now. Physically anyway. Mentally I'm still afeard.
