I love that you get the bag even if you order just a body!
Mitra had been out hunting when they caught them. Of course they knew of the risks, every single one of them knew to stay out of the way of traders’ caravans when they came through the desert and yet… here they were, uncomfortably in a small cage, strapped to a camel’s side and bumping into the furry body with each swaying step it took. And of course they had to fall into the hands of traders who knew their business, knew enough to inject them with the antidote that’d make stinging anything virtually useless. Silently, Mitra fumed. What had the old ones told them over and over again, when they were still small and buried under the hot desert sand? If they catch you, you’re dead. They will bring you into the big city and have you fight against each other in a life-or-death struggle until you die. There were no stories of escapees in their lore. If they caught you, you were dead.
They had buried Thyra’s body deep in the rotten soil of the outback where the earth was of a heavy black and smelled of death and decay. They had not marked her grave, they had not paid her the respect one paid the dead – they had just dug a hole and thrown her in, shoved the earth hastily back over her.
And there she lay.
I’ve been told that I need to get a Raccoondoll pretty much since the company first popped up (cause mature minis + curvy bodies + boobs = my thing) but I kinda never had a reason to get one until I decided that’d be a smart idea (except not) to shell some secondary characters. The first idea was to get her in Sweet Mocha but then Raccoondoll released Dark Mocha and I am a fan of different tan shades (and Sweet Mocha is like Iple’s Real Skin and I already have a doll in this color) so Dark Mocha it was.
Much poetic. Such wow.
Because I adored the Birthday Post the Mouse made for her Jun, I figured it’d be nice to do it for Rhys too, because the guy turned fucking seven this year. SEVEN. Jesus, he is old, I am old, we are all old.
Rhys was my second doll whom I ordered whil I was still waiting on my first at the end of 2009 as Angelheim popped up as new company and had some sort of promo going on where you got the fullset of all their guys with both outfits (school uniform and fantasy outfit) as well as the extra parts with blushing and a face-up for cheap. Also he had hooves!
It goes like this – once upon a time, when the world was just a glint in the eye of the giant Melomenes, seven beings emerged from the dark. They were not fully formed yet; they were just there, like a particular unamusing thought which would not leave, no matter how hard the thinker tried. The giant tried to sweep his eye in a vain attempt to get rid of the thoughts but only succeeded in getting it loose, until it hung from his face only secured but the veins. In a fit of rage, the giant ripped it out fully and threw it away, where it floated in the vast darkness. Only then, the seven beings descended upon the floating eyeball and started to mold it in the image of the worlds they had seen flashing before the giant’s eyes.
Based on the creation legend, the world is named SILMÄ (‚eye‘ in Finnish) and is split into the following five continets:

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned my fascination with taxidermy in all its various forms? If not, I have a special place in my heart for stuffed animals, bones, dried specimen and other oddities and when the diorama project took off, I knew that I had to have all those things in there as well. Because it is a laboratory / study for a magical scientist and not having those things would be a shame.
My main issue with the diorama has always been that I want clutter, like a lived-in clutter that accumulates after centuries of usage of the same room. I can do clutter irl quite easily but with dolls I always find I strive to show everything clearly in a picture which is not possible with the sort of clutter I want to achieve. So uh, constant fight against my inner self here xD
But I guess I have figured it out now?
