Finally, today--Sunday--the sun came out long enough for me to photograph Evgeny in various wigs. It was an interesting exercise. His head is narrower than Jamie's (Iplehouse SID Claude). Even though they wear the same size wig, the fit is quite different. All of the wigs seem to fall in Evgeny's eyes--much more so than in Jamie's. I hate to cut any of them, because I never do a good job. And unlike real hair, a wig won't grow any longer. Once it's cut, it's cut. I waste enough money on wigs without butchering them in the bargain.
Little Yuri (Iplehouse BID Byuri) is quite taken with his Daddy. I caught them in a tender pose when they thought I wasn't looking. The gray wig is Barahan's default wig. I thought I liked it in the website's promotional photos, but I am liking it less the longer I look at him wearing it. I also tried these photos with Evgeny wearing the black wig (above), which I liked better. Unfortunately, the scene contained too much black; it activated my camera flash, which washed everything out.
I have yet to take photos of Evgeny and Jamie together. They are the same size, but there the resemblance ends. And once Shane arrives, the mix will be even more interesting. I still can't believe I bought three big male dolls. I don't like sewing for the guys. Men's clothes are boring. Just look at the male SID clothes on Iple's website if you don't believe me. Black. Gray. Brown. There is a green tank top, a blue-and-orange plaid shirt, and some hip-hop thing with a bit of color, but that's it. Just black, gray, brown. And beige. How could I forget the beige? I think I bought the black Le Roi Danse outfit primarily because it had a red vest. I may have to sew something in spite of myself.

11 mm Platinum Glass from Eyeco. The color is Morning Sky.

shadows in this photo show off Evgeny's sculpt.
The light in the previous photos was rather flat.
