Memorial Doll

April 26th, 2012 (07:46 am)

My DZ 1/4th double-jointed body (for the event Luke head coming in with my Moon) I adopted from a collector in Spain FINALLY arrived Tuesday after sitting in New York for a week! I picked it up from the post office Wednesday morning before work.

He's wonderful! Arrived in perfect condition, even when traveling bent up in a Fairyland shipping box that originally contained a Real Puki box! I love DZ dolls - the resin is so smooth and they pose like dreams!

I did not have any character for him, but Wednesday one fell from heaven, so to speak. I found out Tuesday night that a good friend had died Easter Sunday but I found out late last night AFTER the memorial service that day. So the doll is going to be a memory doll of my friend, who for a while was my best friend. When we were close, he liked the group Journey, and my friend's name was James Odle so the doll will be Journey Odle.

I'm very sorry for your loss, Onna. Your tribute sounds very special, and will give you many reasons to smile in fond memory.

And it's a lovely name, really.

Thoughtful - Eiri

Thanks, ET.

It may be that the Volks SDC Ryu coming may turn into Journey. He has a nice smile and James smiled a lot.

Having a Volks doll as a memorial seems more appropriate.

Awww! *hugs* So sorry you found out after the memorial! But what a sweet tribute! And a great name! Whichever doll he ends up being, he'll be extra special. ^___^

Kane

The Luke head looks a lot like my BB Jing, to the point they could be brothers. Originally he was going to integrate into that family line and he may still do so, but have a different mother so he will have a last name. The rest of the dysfunctional family does not have any last names. Little backstory: Kane (DZ Recall) has fathered many children from different mothers/child-bearers. All my smaller humanoid DZs are his grown spawn except for the BBs, who are children. The animal DZs are not related.

The Luke could be Journey and be born from a male child-bearer. Hmm. That would work!
