In which I continue to be a sucker for old Custom House.
Please say hello to Kitten:

Kitten is probably the strayest of all my CH rescue strays . . . thanks to poor lighting conditions, this picture is blurry enough to minimize the truly horrendous awfulness of the previous owner's faceup, but believe me, it is both horrendous and awful. I won't even go into the neon-orange eyeshadow. The good news is that Previous Owner scribbled over the original, distinctive CH eyebrows with pencil, so their shape and placement are still intact--this should give me a leg up when I send him out for refurbishment. He comes by his sulkiness fairly; to add insult to bad-faceup-and-overall-griminess injury, he arrived folded into a Z-shape inside a square box, zipped into an Angell-Studio satin bag. *shudder*

For being the same Gene sculpt as Pen, Kitten certainly doesn't look anything like my sweet, studious Best Boy. How I do love these dolls, you know?

And yes, if anyone's keeping track, I do have a Kit (my Dollstown Mui). Can't help it. Kit is Kit, and Kitten is Kitten, and that's all there is to it.

I'm having to view and comment on LJ with my phone lately---can't login to LJ with Hughesnet.. ugh, so awkward. Kitten looks like a sulky-cool type to me.:) I really like him already and can't wait to see him with his new faceup! *____* Congratulations on him!

As long as I don't get up too close, I really don't have MAJOR problems with this faceup . . . but up close, eeeergh. I have somebody lined up to redo him next month, so in the meantime, he can just hang out and be pouty with neon-orange eyeshadow. ;-)

**hugs** Congratulations on your rescue -- I'm so happy for you!!!

(I recently rescued a Rinon and a Lieselotte -- trust me, their previous face-ups were so bad that I LITERALLY PUT THEIR HEADS IN A BOX AND SENT IT OUT THE DAY THEY ARRIVED. Thankfully, Eludys came through, and they're now both gorgeous -- here's hoping your artist can bring out the best in Kitten!)

Eris, in my icon, is another rescue -- she started out with a broken knee and pink-and-yellow eyeshadow. Thanks to Ravendolls (for the knee) and Kittymaru (for the face-up), she is now a delight! :D


Oh, good heavens . . . who would muck up a Lieselotte? *shudder* I keep looking at Rinons, myself--if the absolute right one happened along, I'm not totally sure I could resist.

What is it with people and the bizarre eyeshadow? Do. Not. Understand.

Lark (Lieselotte) had decent eyebrows that I could live with, weird pale lips that I wasn't a fan of, and *gobs of fluorescent coral airbrushed blush all over.* Whoever did it was a competent artist, but they had *terrible* taste.

Much, MUCH happier with her now.

And, yeah -- some people and their . . . face-up ideas. *shudder*

*much love*

You're safe now, Kitten. No more pain where you are. <3

Kitten: *well, at least I'm wearing an EXPENSIVE Y!J SHIRT* *so my life does seem to be improving, uh-huh*


Congrats Kitten!

I was actually going to send you the eBay link, but remembered you already had a "few" of this mold. I'm glad you caved.

Heh. Well, officially it's only two Juns and now two Genes, so I'm not THAT overstocked . . . yet . . . *snerk*
