As you know; my dolls live in two different universes, and here I will show you some the dolls from the Freaks universe (there are more dolls in this universe that just these four, but they are still WIPs). I am sorry for the very boring backgrounds. These pictures are not new, but I wanted to show you the characters and tell a little about how they met and became friends...

The Freaks all have some physical flaw that they assume makes them non-human.

The first character we meet in this universe is Hamlet Jones. He's from a loving family and he has a younger sister. He was top of his classes and studied to become a doctor, but he got a strange sickness. He suffers from a form of encephalopathy sickness, which makes his skin rot of the bones, and his mental abilities deteriorate because many small holes appear in his cortex, which will eventually make his brain a sponge. Because of his sickness we call him Zombie.
He has tried many different medicines, but not a lot is known of his sickness. Now he wants to try alternative treatment.


Zombie meets a pretty girl called Phryne Ffoulkes. She lived on the other side of the dessert, but had to escape. Crossing the dessert she almost died, but she was saved by a witch. To save Phryne 
scorpion poison was used. But it fused with her body, and she got a Scorpio tail (but she survived). Because of her tail we call her Scorpio.
Scorpio is still a pretty girl but she does not think herself pretty anymore after she got the tail, and she wants it gone.

 

Zombie and Scorpio quickly becomes friends. They are both loners but they see in the other person someone who can understand them.
Both Zombie and Scorpio hear talk of Voodoo magic, and wonder if it can save them. Together they seek the Voodoo king to help the. But to do voodoo magic he needs ingredients and someone destroyed his home and all of his ingredients. Together the 3 friends set out to find new ingredients.



The friends run into Henry D'Arcy. He is a gentleman (his nickname is Gentleman) but he suffered a very great loss when he was young, and his depression took the form of a claw-arm (as long as Henry suffers his depression the claw will remain).
After about 15 years with a claw-arm, he now sees it as a fixed part of him, and no not believe it can change. Henry is not dependent on voodoo magic but on love to be healed, but he stays with the Freaks because they do not judge him. Henry is a scholar so he knows a lot. He and Voodoo become very good friends and often discuss books and papers.



Henry becomes friends with the others and together they set off on new adventures.
Along the way Scorpio and Voodoo fall in love. She is afraid that he can't remove her tail, because she believes the flaw is a hindrance in their relationship. She does not understand that he loves her exactly as she is, so he will not let her go even if he cannot remove her scorpion tail.



Zombie is a Ringdoll Zombie Sol
Scorpio is an Elfdoll Vivien hybrid
Voodoo is a Fifth Motif Venitu
Henry is a Soom Bix hybrid

I will introduce the other two planned Freaks when they are ready; Snakey and Cyborg.
Snakey is a Simply Divine Medusa Valentina. I need to buy her a body soon. When I have her body will I be able to work on her.
Cyborg is a Iplehouse Cyborg Bianca. I need to finish her faceup, clothes and accessories.

New photos of Henry D'Arcy [Soom Bix hybrid]

I can't believe Henry is almost finished!! :D He needs a new faceup but same style as this one, and he needs a new blushing of the claw arm.

In my last post I showed a picture of Henry with his normal arms, but he actually has the claw arm for most of his life. When the friends from my Freaks universe first meet Henry, they see him like this...

Henry D'Arcy [Soom Bix Hybrid]

I've changed a few things about Henry (mostly I made him a scholar). This is Henry's story so far...

~*~

Henry is very much a gentleman, which is why his nickname is Gentleman (you know me, my dolls from the Freaks universe must have a nickname).

When Henry was young (about 14) he suffered a great loss; his little sister was raped and murdered by her uncle. His parents never recovered from her death, and they slowly gave up on life. As a result Henry was forced to take care of his parents while trying to attend school. It didn't work; Henry wasn't always able to attend school regularly, so his teachers kept failing him. In the end Henry stopped going to school, and stayed home taking care of his parents. But he never gave up on studying and studied on his own.
Studying on his own made him independent and he was a quick learner. He was like a sponge with knowledge, and when he was in his twenties he communicated with other scholars around the word (they assumed he was older than he was because both his knowledge, his way of writing, and his way of addressing people seemed to belong to someone much older).

Henry suffered greatly the loss of his sister and also the loss of his parents (their minds died on the same day as their daughter), and his depression took the form of a claw-arm (as long as Henry suffers his depression the claw will remain). After more than ten years with a claw-arm, he now sees it as a fixed part of him.

For the next 10-15 years, Henry took care of his parents. Then they died (natural causes) leaving Henry all alone. He eventually left his childhood home with his books (he was then 30). He wanted to seek out knowledge in the old libraries all over the world.
The Fates decided to put him in the path of Zombie, Voodoo, Scorpio, Medusa, and Cyborg...

~*~


This picture shows Henry with no Claw arm, so it's from after he met the other Freaks and they helped him battle his depression.

#ProBJDartists

I saw this was a thing again this year. And since I really do support legit dolls and the wonderful artists who makes these dolls for us, I made a picture for this year also.
 
This is Voodoo trying to convince you to support the artists.

Colour me (pleasantly) confused

So apparently there are people out there, who seem to enjoy seeing my dolls.

I always imagined it was only me, who liked my dolls, (and my friends because I told them to like my dolls). Lately I've come to realize this belief is wrong; there are actually strangers, who like my dolls!

It started when I found a new group on facebook called BJD Addicts. It's a large group with over 7000 members, so there's a lot pictures and a lot of discussion. It seemed like a nice place, so I posted a "I'm new here and this is one of my dolls"-post there with a picture of Scorpio. That post has over 250 likes and 18 comments. I was (and still am) surprised by the welcome both me and Scorpio got. So I posted a new photo of Voodoo and Scorpio. It wasn't that great a photo actually; no background, bad lighting, Voodoo as a WIP (you can even see the putty holding his eyes in place!), Scorpio looks a bit weird. Still the photo has over 260 likes and 21 comments.
On the Danish site the picture of Voodoo and Scorpio got more than 20 likes and 3 comments, which is also a lot considering we are about 70 members.
Also on Instagram both photos got about 50-60 likes, which is a lot of likes for me.
I'm still amazed by it all.
Also for both photos the comments were positive! I have a fear someone will say something bad about my dolls, because I know it will hurt me. I don't really know how to deal with criticism, so every time I post a picture or a post I get a stomach ache. This is also the reason why I don't post pictures that often.

Of course I love both of these dolls, but I just didn't actually think others did too. I though Scorpio was too strange as a hybrid to be liked by another than me, and I though no one would like a dark tan Venitu, as there are so few of him in that colour.


These are the two pictures:
Scorpio finally got an outfit that I really like. It's from Iplehouse.

Voodoo's using Nathaniel's hair and pants, but I hope to have his own soon. The vest is new and just perfect to the imagine I have of him, but I need to fix it a bit. I'm starting to fall in love with Voodoo myself :P I'm so happy I panicked and bought Venitu when I did.
Fun fact, Scorpio is actually the tallest of the two (when wearing the Vesuvia resin-shoes), but it fits very well with my characters.
