SEPTEMBER MUSINGS

A few days ago I decided to try what I had begun to consider Percivals default wig, a Volks W-171D in Smokybeige, on Elias. For the most part it was a reaction to mounting frustrations with other wigs that I had tried on him but the outcome was refreshing in a few different ways.

I’ll admit it, Elias was a total impulse purchase. It wasn’t until a friend, @keicai, began posting their beautiful boys Atlas and Orion that I succumbed to temptation. The downside of this was that I had absolutely nothing prepared or planned for Elias’ arrival. So while Ikaru, Percival, and even Poem had a plethora of outfits to choose from, Elias was forced into Banthus’ wardrobe of elegant gothic aristocrat.

I had never intended for anyone but Banthus to dress in EGA but I got swept up in what should have been a temporary look - it’s always easier to branch out then to start from scratch - and found myself purchasing snow white wigs and fantasy inspired eyes solely with Elias in mind. It was driving me crazy! This wasn’t my normal doll styling at all! So when I finally, finally received a pair of SD17 sized pants in the mail I couldn’t get them on Elias fast enough and the change in outfit prompted the change in wigs.

It’s like he’s gone from this stranger to someone that fits seamlessly into the rest of my collection. Of course, not I need to figure out what to do about Percival having his wig stolen! This hobby really is never ending!
