Customhouse love . . . and a BIG thank-you to dear honeyedbiscuit!
I haven't managed to say thank you properly, but honeyedbiscuit sent me a surprise care package of Lush (and related) goodies that totally MADE my month. Which, outside of resin arrivals, has been iffy at best. But thanks to Judith, I now smell like banana (yes, this is a good thing) and have other delicious-smelling things to sample! *feeling very thankful for dear friends*

And it's also thanks to Judith that this sweet boy lives with me now. It's taken quite a while to home in on a faceup that I like, and I will say that I have my moments of regretting that I wiped the original Heavybomb faceup, fruit-punch-mouth and all . . . but welcome home to Nell Bin!

This faceup is by dondonmum (Mia Studio), and I wish I had gotten a picture in today's wonky light that does its details justice. I need to work on the wig thing; this Anotherspace one is about the right color, but it just doesn't fit. (Anyone.) The eyes are DropRops Spray Green, and I love 'em.

By the way, he now says his name is Matthias. Don't ask me why.

Pen is trying out a new Volks wig, which fits much better than the constantly-falling-off Ajumapama one that I think of as his real hair, but still looks a little messy, the way it should. Not a bad experiment, overall. And he isn't usually a brown-eyed boy, but I like the gentleness of these DropRops, because that's my Best Boy for you.

And finally, this is Angry Jun (new CH head painted by Streliteia and acquired in a moment of eBay weakness; new CH boy body picked up for cheap on DoA). I think he needs to live somewhere else, because he is certainly not happy here! He didn't even cooperate enough to let me get a semi-decent picture.

I should try jazzier eyes in him, but the faceup is so bright (not that you can tell from these pictures, urgh) that all the intense eyes I've tried make him look like a neon sign. The new CH boy body, like the new CH girl body, is lovely, but CH has changed to a pink-toned resin that doesn't match anything I've seen except new Souldoll. I had secretly thought that Pen might get a body upgrade, but er. So very not.

Yay for bananas!!! Matthias and Pen look great despite loose wigs. Angry Jun looks sad to me; he makes me think of my CH Gene (Jin?) who I sold in my cancer-induced "I must Rid myself of All Possessions!" fit. I miss him now, but he has a good new home, a new look and a new name and I think it is for his best. Wishing the same for Angry J. :)

I don't have to deal with cancer, but I go through those fits, too! Earlier this fall, I very nearly sold someone I would have regretted a lot, for no reason other than this mad impulse to clean house. *sigh*

On the other hand, sometimes dolls do need to move on. I'm thinking Angry J. falls into that category, but I'm giving him a couple of weeks to convince me otherwise, heh.

Bananas are love.

..... i liked the eyes that you picked...... re-home your neon sign boy..... i'm sure someone will love him.......

He's really beautiful--he's just the wrong temperament for my crew. Neechan is as angry as it gets, around here!

... it is interesting when somebody doesn't MATCH, isn't it?

Orchid has a doll collection of her own. .... i had to get rid of one of THEM because it just so did not go. :).

You have such sweet boys! Your pouty little neon boy is a cutie, but I can see that he has a lot of competition. Sorry that the extra-resin components on November have been bad -- it has certainly been a spectacular month for you in doll terms.

And my bank account is screaming because of it! *urp* Oh, well--with winter coming, what is there to do besides hunker down and pay off the bills? ;-)

i wanna smell like a banana too! LOL.. that made me laugh...

anyway i love those eyes in pen. if they were really dark brown they might be "not him" but that color... I like it. I love pen. it's always SO nice to see him.

and that first boy, I love him too!!!

now the angry one... I can see why you might want to rehome him. He doesn't seem to fit, somehow.

Oooooo, this Lush "Gumback Express" shower soap smells EXACTLY like ripe bananas. Toshi actually tried to snatch the container out of my hand the other morning, because he's a banana fiend (of all the weird things for a dog to like . . .).

Yeah, I'm thinking Angry Jun needs to take his 'tude to somebody else's house. Although every time I look at him, I weaken a little--you know!

Oooh, Matthias is *wonderful!* I LOVE him in those jelly-blue eyes. Eee, so sweet!

He is SUCH a cutie!

Still trying to find Sejong's Head of Enemy bag, by the way . . .

Hi, Cynthia!

Thanks for the PM. :D I'm glad that the package got to you safely, and I'm glad that you also like the Gumback Express! It's really banana-y, right? xD Like ripe bananas!

Matthias looks wonderful! I really think the new faceup does him much justice -- the Bin mold is gorgeous. :D Sorry to hear that the previous faceup (post HeavyBomb) didn't work out, but it looks like this one did!

Always nice to see Pen -- is he painted by Yama?

Yup, that's Pen's Yama faceup--I'm finally getting the pictures that it deserves. Much, much CH love. (And isn't dondonmum good? I am very impressed with Matthias's faceup. It was worth the first misfire, to get such a good artist the second time around.)

*hugs* to you, dear J.! Also, you would be entertained to see Toshi trying to get at the Gumback Express. He'll do anything for a bite of banana, so you can imagine what Lush's banana smell does to him . . .
