After seven years of existence, Alex finally broke. I'm kind of heartbroken...
It was just his hand, but, it was his original hand, and it was just so sad. He fell on the freaking carpet! He's fallen a million times and NOTHING. This time, broken finger. It was the ring finger on his right hand - which was so hard to glue back on...I couldn't reach it! Luckily I have two things: his jointed hands (which I don't use much anymore because they annoy me, and they're much yellower than he is), and an extra pair of Adam hands I bought years ago when he broke his freaking wrist. So now the hand that goes with the wrist is on him, and the broken one is on the table in front of me.
I shouldn't be sad...it was only a hand. But it was Alex's hand. If one of the WS ones had broke...they're not wearing their original hands so who cares!! But no...it had to be the first one. I guess it had to happen sooner or later (still, 7 years!!).
My "secret" doll came in - it's not exciting lol but the sale was weird, so I felt if I didn't say anything it would be fine (and it was). I am now the owner of an actual Fashion Doll! But he's from Dollmore, so he doesn't feel like one XD
The sad thing is that's the main reason I bought him...if he'd been from another company I probably wouldn't have bothered.
So I have a Dollmore 16" FMD Jeremy - he's made of resin, and is pretty much on the same body Alex had, though it's smaller, has better knees, arms and is really really buff. Like, has muscles and veins. I took him too a dollmeet the day after he arrived (bald and naked lol) and 1. Everyone thought he was a Fairyland Chic-line and 2. couldn't believe he wasn't going to be an Alex. Seriously, if you saw him you'd understand. The guy is manly. Way too manly to be Alex. Maybe in his wildest dreams...but poor Alex would be more likely to be a girl doll than this one. In any case he's kind of fabulous - it's the same body design other than breaks in the upper arm which help his posing so much. His body is about the size of any slim mini, but his head is so small that certain clothes look odd and bulky, so shopping for him might be tough. I have no idea who or what he's going to be, though I'm leaning toward some kind of superhero or something...I have no idea who because I don't have the ability to sew so costumes are kind of out.
The fashion doll was my obsession for about a week, then was replaced by my Dollzone Carter I've had for almost a year now. He has had a faceup, and was a ghost, which was what I had planned for him....but thanks to the Jeremy and to a dollmeet theme that will happen months from now, I got reobsessed with something I have been obsessed with off and on for my whole life...and now Carter is getting a makeover. Omg I love him. I mean, if I can make this work it could be cool. Or a disaster. either way it'll be a success XD
I'm hoping to get pictures this week, so I'll do a real post on him then.
That's all I got. No photos - I've been been fail like that.
