Two new girls joined our household last week, and I’ve only just had time to introduce them. 5 dollies are a lot of work!

Here are Dell and Cade, stretching after their long trip.

Here’s Dell. Her full name is Bedell, my mom’s maiden name. She kind of reminds me of pictures of my mom when she was younger. She’s a Birdie Blue, my first and only EBL. I like her small, perfect eyes and gorgeous hair. I did not expect her to be so stunning.

She’s had two sets of eyechips changed, which is standard in our house.

The first are Man GG Girl (ebay) dark brown painted with black paint and foiled. The second are unfoiled Man GG Girl blue. She’s also had her stock yellowy blush removed, although I thought I liked it in photos, it was much less peachy in person.

Next is Pow Wow Poncho Cade, short for Arcadia, which is my oldest online handle, a reference to Greek myth and more applicably, a hokey 80s cartoon I loved. Given this, I hope to tell Cade all my secrets about my early experiences on AOL. 🙂

Cade only has one set of new eyechips so far, purple Man GG Girl’s, painted and foiled. I put in some green with foils and I hated the foils so I took them out. I might paint them or just put them in plain.

While I was Magic Erasering off Dell’s offending blush, I decided, probably from low ADG esteem brought on by the community at large, to try to lighten Garnet’s lip color. It resulted in a hole in the color in her bottom lip, so I got to have my first adventure in lip painting! It took me several tries, but in the end I’m happy. I think the coral suits her. The hardest part was that the varnish was so thick and gooey.

Clever’s been out a bit for a knitting date at Unlimited with Jess and Aris:

We had a hair clinic tonight. Garnet’s hair has reached a state of frizz I can’t quite deal with (probably from having a ponytail while her lips were being painted). Alonza got a fringe trim, finally. Dell just got a comb out since she was in pigtails, and poor Clever had her hair washed for the billionth time because it still felt greasy from the fabric softener. I was so inspired I clipped off some weird patches of my own hair.

The petites have been sold. I have no real plans to buy another doll…well, not really. I do rather fancy FTS as a blonde+fantasy hair combo! I need to get to sewing again before summer’s over. And why are my dolls always barefoot? Well, they’ve been waiting patiently, and now Blythe Mode is here!

Signing off for now. Here’s a picture of the girls. Alonza couldn’t fit so she decided this was the solution!
