I’m not sure how I feel about Poppy’s face-mold…
I should probably explain that I originally bought her for her body and planned on selling her head (I’ll explain all that in another post). But I decided that rather than a painful decapitation Poppy would get a stay of execution and I’d try to see if she grew on me (hey it happens with the most unlikely dolls sometimes!) 😛
She’s different from all the other face molds I have.
I’m guessing that that is a good thing-except I’m not in love with her face.
Now, like I said in a previous post–I’m trying to expand my horizons and be more open minded when it comes to the dolls that I am adding to my collection.
Surely, Poppy can’t be all bad, right? (I have noticed that there is a kind of love-her or hate-her thing going on with some collectors of Fashion Royalty with regard to Poppy). For me, I think it will ultimately come down to if I am able to envision her as a character in one of my photostories.
So here are some pics of her I shot today.
I can tell you that later this week/end I’ll be wiping her lipstick off and applying a color that I actually like. I’m not sure if I want to go with a more neutral/ natural look or if I want to go for a blue-based red. Or even plum.
The nice thing about her face is that the eyeshadow she’s been given is fairly neutral and low-key. (although there is a flaw in it that bugs me–small lump 🙁 I may end up wiping her eyeshadow after all) That in and of itself makes me want to try to use her in Wrenwood, but—I’m thinking that I want her as someone one on the scene (the set) but not necessarily an actress.
There are plenty of other roles she could play, and maybe–if she gets along with Giselle at least–she could be a friend. Maybe. Or an enemy. Hmmm?
