Profile: Miss Aphra, is a bit of a wild mare with a penchant for literature and a passion for the theater. She spent some time on the continent spying for her Majestie’s government, gaining little by it, but picked up a smattering of French and other continental skills besides. At the end of her continental stay, about nine months, a baby girl, christened Miette, was left in the care of a convent, a typical L’Ecole des filles, to be brought up by the abbess herself as a foundling. Aphra came to us exhausted but with spirit intact and vowed to send for the little girl as soon as she was able.

Sign: Capricorn

Type: Volks Super Dollfie Pure-skin White
Edition: LE White Cat Chris

Wig: W-101-613 One-Curl Bob Ivory
Esthetics: by Kallisti

Location: Consumptive Ward

Profile: Lysander Menace, Lord Foppington is a bit on the delicate side with a weakness for Laudanum infused with crushed, dried beetles. He can frequently be seen hacking attractively into a monogramed hanky of delicate lawn while reading the latest bit of gothic trash from the lending library.

Hermione & Lysander, orphaned twins born within five minutes of eachother, at one time stood to inherit grotesque amounts of money until it was revealed that Old Unkie Roderick had frittered away the family fortune on exotic cheeses and fur coats (he was a bit of a swissophile). Upon their birth, their mother, Lady Foppington, lingered briefly with glistening brow and promptly perished. Young Master inherited the title upon the death of his Father, the Old Lord Foppington, who died of ennui and whiskey. Still, until Young Master and Miss Menace reach maturity at twenty-one, they are in the foster care of Blastmilk Home for Wayward Girls (and one boy).

Sign: Aquarius
Age: 17
Type: Volks FCS
Head: SD-F-16
Skin Color: Pure-skin White
Wig: W-27 Mixed Wine
Glass Eyes: Zoukeimura #04 Thin Green
Body: SD-B-06 (SD13 SM Bust)
Hand: SD-H-04
Esthetics: by Zoukeimura

Profile: The Hon. Hermione Menace is a sullen, independent girl. She’d just as soon paint her toenails green and walk barefoot down Main Street as pen outlines for faux term papers on the phantasmagoric and carnivalesque in eighteenth century literature. She doesn’t say much, but when she does, O! The stories she tells! None of them are true, of course. They are wild, hair raising tales of daring-do and blood curdling adventures of young abused heroines with crazed eyes and torn gowns of the palest lawn. But every so often, in the midst of telling her tale, she gets a glisteny wide-eyed look, and you wonder what could take her thoughts so far away. I asked her once and she answered simply, “Cookies.”

About: Hermione was ordered at the Los Angeles Sumika on opening day, November 21st 2006, and her headplate reads is #5! While Hermione is not a Sasha clone, or a Sasha stand-in, she believes Sasha could certainly be tolerated, as a distant cousin, or bastard half-sister, but she doesn’t want anyone to be so gravely mistaken as to assume that she is in any way second choice to a Sasha.

Aschenputtel


Aschenputtel

Birthday: November 19th, 2005
Sign: Scorpio
Age: 17
Type: SD10 Sweet Dream Nana in Pure-skin LE beauty white
Edition: Special LA Edition One-Off
Head: Sweet Dream Nana
Eyes: HG Cadet Blue 20mm
Wig: One Off Special
Esthetics: Ciera

Location: Consumptive Ward

Profile: Aschenputtel is the stepsister of Ginevra. We found her one morning sitting on the kitchen floor saying hail marys while pointing a vegetable knife at her chest. We’re not sure where she came from, neither her nor Ginevra are very forthcoming about their origins, but clearly they had very unhappy beginnings. Strangely, they don’t get on much and frequently can be found bickering at the bottom of the garden. Aschenputtel is of very sad countenance, and keeps mostly to herself. One peculariar thing though: she seems to like to preserve dead mice and sew little outfits for them. Hrm.

About: Aschenputtel is so named for a happy weekend we spent in Los Angeles attending the Volks reception and opening day festivities on November 19th & 20th respectively, in 2006. They issued 100 invites to the Reception at the Volks Mansion, and had twenty-one OOAK one-offs available by lottery. I entered for one, a Sweet Dream Nana, whom I have always coveted, and after a few false starts on ticket calling, won the opportunity to buy her. She’s dreamy! You can see her original presentation and paperwork here.

Ondine Alice

Birthday: February 13, 2005
Sign: Aquarius
Age: 19
Type: Hypermaniac
Edition: Ksy
Body: HM 15 Years
Esthetics: by Kallisti

Profile: Another aquarius, Ondine is a bit on the mysterious side. She’s not entirely trouble, but she has her mischevious moments.

Orphaned long ago, passed from home to home, we found her stealing peaches and selling them to strangers in our yard. We punished her by making her bake us pies forever. This makes her sad.

Demelza Grimwig

Birthday: June 1, 2004
Sign: Gemini
Age: 14
Type: Volks
Edition “Lady Sylvie”
Head: Limited Sylvie
Body: SD10 FCS pure skin w/ medium breast
Esthetics: by Kallisti

Profile: Demelza Grimwig is an impish girl. She got her hair slammed in an upper story window when she was creeping around in my attic. I trapped her by offering her snacks, which ensared her in our world forever.

About: Lady Sylvie was the first Volks doll I think I really fell head over heels for. I tried in vain to get her when she was released in October of 2003 (or thereabouts) but I was much less savvy in the ways of scoring these hard to find treasures. A couple deals fell through and I set my sights elsewhere and ordered my FCS F-13 in December.

The next year I noticed they were still popping up relatively cheaply on Yahoo Japan. Finally I snagged a girl sans costume for a very good price. I had already bought the costume some months earlier from someone else. My Sylvie was coming home!

 

Fifi Mahony

Birthday: January 20th, 2004
Sign: Aquarius
Age: 19
Type: Volks FCS
Head: F-13 (Mimi Type)
Body: SD13 B-06 (Megu Type)
Skin: Old-skin Beauty White
Eyes: Volks Neosium (GE-15)
Wig: (default) W-4 Navy (C-23)
Esthetics: by Kallisti


Profile:
I came home one day and found Fifi in my bathroom knee deep in my cosmetics bag. She had the lash curler in one hand and nail polish brush in the other. We never could get her to leave.

She’s definately the alpha female of the group, and gets very cranky with the other girls for borrowing her wardrobe and body all the time. She’s very proud of her lithe, creamy white figure. She looks more and more like a drag queen the older she gets.

Fifi is an Aquarius with a Gemini rising. She is one psycho dollie. Venus in Pisces. Mars in Aries. Mercury in Capricorn. Basically, Fifi is detached, airy, and prone to crying jags and road rage when she doesn’t get her way. A destructive drama/glamour queen!

Glad Fifi is inanimate — aren’t you?

Thank you to Bat for the astrological analysis. Mwah!

About: I waited sooo long for her to come home. Saved for many months
and then 6 weeks from the time I ordered the FCS from Rudi she arrived!
Please visit her namesake!
