It’s a really strange time for me right now. I so rarely have time to do as I please, in fact so rare I get pretty irritable with it. Yesterday I was finally able to sew and made two pillow case dresses for Evie. Her eyes had become cross-eyed, so I took the time to wash, condition and curl her brown human hair wig and put in some eyelashes in a soft auburn that I had leftover from Pernille. It felt so good to spend time with Evie.
When I was putting her eyes back in, they automatically shifted to the side and I really liked the look of it. I didn’t have to adjust them at all. He hair turned out really nice and while I really like the pale blonde mohair, it was already getting the cotton candy syndrome. Evie is much too active for such fussy hair.
I always get such a kick out of Evie’s ability to change her age. It’s all in the wig and lashes. No lashes, short hair, she looks about 6-7 years old. Long hair and lashes and her age increases to 12 years. This is without changing her face up at all. With the two long dresses I made, she looks so much like she did back when I was making her adult age 18th century clothes. I may be exploring this a bit more. I’ll have to post photo’s later, as my battery is too low. I love being able to see Evie at so many different ages. I never had a companion that stayed the same personality throughout the different looks, including a different body as Evie has. I can change her looks and her age, but I cannot change Evie.
Time is passing and we are getting closer to the time I will leave, mostly likely 2 1/2 months from now. I am nervous in so many ways, it will be quite an experience to pack the essentials. Some days I am sure I will be ok to do it, other days I wonder if I can. Moments like this make me cling to Evie.
