So I'm very excited about Kipling and Cairo getting new, taller bodies (if you can't tell), but I'm also really excited about my RealFee Mari.
I won't be starting on her wardrobe at all until she gets here. I'm trying not to get too specific in my plans for her (that never works for me with a new character), but I'm thinking she'll be a little sprite or pixie of some sort. I don't actually want to mix her in with the other dolls, I'd like to keep her separate.
For photographing her, I'd like her to actually be the tiny size she is in real life, but wandering amongst regular human-sized backgrounds. If you, like me, are very old, think Fraggle Rock, whenever the Fraggles ventured into the human world. ;) As much fun as it is to try to photograph the others with everything reasonably to scale, I think it would be fun to have one who is just completely out of place, wandering around bringing a bit of magic to the everyday world.
I was pinning ideas for clothing for her - she seems to have a very mori, vagabond-ish-type look. We'll see how it plays out when she arrives. Sometimes all your plans go right out the window when a doll arrives.
I've mostly given up naming them before they get here, though I love to come up with possible names while I wait. I can never decide on one, though, till they have "their" look in place.
Right now though, I'm leaning strangely to "Marie".......Or maybe Cairn? I've always liked the name Sylvie, and that would be a good one for a little nature spirit. Mims is cute, but then Akili is such a pretty name. Meep? Mouse? Oh!!! Minerva! That would be awfully cute...and yet a good big name to grow into. ;)
Ah, but she will be whomever she is in the end. I can't wait to find out!
