Not sure, as I've never seen one in real life. Smaller than the box, obviously.
Sorry. [I cut the box open and took out some wadded paper and an envelope.] Here. Hold this.
I sure hope so. Could you manage to look a little less horrified?
What are these...things...on either side of its head?
They're supposed to be antlers. Like a moose. Here. Hold this.
It's her extra belly.
Do I even want to know?
It's so I can convert her from four-legged to two-legged.
I think I'm going to be sick.
Please don't. Ooh, pretty blue bag. There are two bubble-wrapped pieces inside. Let's start with this one. It appears to be the body.
She wouldn't like that. And neither would I. This other piece must be the head. How do I attach it? [I had to remove the eyes in order to be able to turn the S-hook inside her head. Then re-insert the eyes behind the hook.] Isn't she a cute little thing!
You'll hurt her feelings. Shake hands and be nice.
I'm Moosilda. You can call me Hilda.
There. That wasn't so bad, was it?
I guess not.
Um...yeah. Most of us. I can think of only three that are smaller than you.
Smaller than me? That will be fun!
Could be Hilda will give the RealPukis a run for their money. That WOULD be something to see.
Doll Chateau Ada (aka Moosilda, aka Hilda) arrived on Friday, November 28th. On Saturday we had sunshine for the first time in days, so I took advantage of it to do her face-up. No body blushing, however, as I wasn't about to risk unstringing her in order to do it. Her limbs are so spindly, I'd never get her put back together! After giving much thought to how I might clothe her, I sewed a prototype outfit on Sunday. Of course, by the time I finished it was too dark to take good photos, but I took a few by flash. Here is the best of the bunch:
I realized that in order to clothe her, I had to treat the front and back ends separately. In front she wears a sleeveless top with attached half skirt. The back end wears a matching "skirt" treated as if it were more of a horse blanket. I made the wig for a RealPuki. Turns out Hilda's head is the same size (i.e., just slightly over 3 inches in circumference). I'd like to make her a feather wig like the one she wears on Doll Chateau's postcard. I also want to make her some shoes so she won't slide on the furniture. Her feet are so tiny! I think a sandal sole should work with some ribbons to tie it on--times four.
