I have found more clothes that look like they could fit Arnold. Tonner has this "Matt Oneil" line out, with the cutest little rust colored sweater, and denim jeans. If I can just get jeans that fit him properly, I can then make him more shirts and not be afraid to take him outside for photos.
The Fair Nell doll I was planning for Lora might have to be switched for Dollstown Yeondu
. She's never in stock now, and the cost is just a little much for me. Plus, while Yeondu is not beautiful
, she does have this soft character to her (which I love), which is exactly what I want for shy and sad Lora. Plus I hear they pose well. She kinda strikes me as a Russian or German immigrant, for some reason. I'd be tempted to sew her a babushka (mom would be proud of me for using that word) ;) Arnold has trouble standing and I can only get him to pose in so many ways.
I will probably be putting Whisper (Luts Soony) on layaway tonight. I'm hearing stories about Luts, but I'd like to get her by Christmas (preferably early December). To do that I'd have to pay her off by Mid-November. It's a crunch, to be sure. I'm going to be changing her name for something more "genki." I want her to be a Japanese pop idol who secretly loves wearing weird clothes and dabbles in the paranormal. I know that sounds odd.
