So without further ado, meet Iris:
Iris is a Simply Vanilla. I had been told she was just RFB, but it seems she's had her pink chips swapped for a golden yellow and one earring post has gone missing. Oh well. Her pullstring click is crazy loud. But all is well. Because, you see, I have plans for her.
Most of you know that my dolls are, for the most part, 100% stock (save for the occasional chip change). It's not that I'm against customizing, it's that I don't do it particularly well (see the example of poor Pomona who rarely sees the outside world) and rarely have the extra funds to let someone else work on my girls. When I got Maia last year, I decided that I really like the look of certain dollies changed up. My Edesia (PD London) begs to have some work done (I think those lips just don't do a thing on the matte FBL dollies) and now too, Iris is wanting.
Part of the allure of Vanilla was her custom potential. I was a bit intrigued and then I saw Finja, the German travelling Blythe. *drool*
Is she not the most precious thing ever? Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Sai did a brilliant job.
So now I've got a small bank of custom Vanillas I'm looking to for inspiration.
I think they're all just beautiful. I might try my hand at sandmatting (eeeeeps!) but we'll see how much I do on my own. I just don't want to ruin the little lovely.
For now - welcome home, Iris!
