My Lagoon (renamed Tamsin) arrived a couple of weeks ago without a faceup. There were two resin colors to choose from -- normal and white, and two faceups -- light and dark. Most people who ordered her -- and that includes me -- selected normal resin with the light faceup. The faceup artist in China erroneously assumed that the light faceup went with the white resin and the dark faceup with the normal resin. I could have accepted the doll with the dark faceup, but Batchix also offered blank dolls as an alternative, and that is how I came to do Tamsin's faceup myself.

I had heard that Lagoon was smaller than other MSDs, so I wondered if Ellowyne Wilde's clothing would fit. We tried on a couple of Elloywne's things, although I almost stopped at the very first item. It was a sweater, and no amount of coaxing would make Tamsin's hand go through Ellowyne's sleeve. The wrist was simply too tight. We had better luck with a sleeveless dress that I had made for Goodreau Innuendo from a pattern for Ellowyne by MHD Designs. Tamsin's waist is smaller than Innuendo's, however, so I had to move the snap in. I think I will be able to use other patterns designed for Ellowyne, but I will have to alter them as I go.

I cut out a dress for Tamsin but didn't get around to sewing it. (I finished a coat for LittleFee instead.) The dress will complement the faux suede jacket I originally made for Unoa Lusis. To my surprise, the jacket was a much better fit on Tamsin. I can actually add snaps and close it, which I couldn't do with Lusis. I wonder if the boots will fit? They were so tight on Lusis that I thought I would have to cut them off her feet in order to remove them. Must go try them on...
