Café on the Rue de Remarques part 3
This page continues from Café on the Rue de Remarques part 2.
The camera sometimes captures undercurrents of which I am unaware at the time. This was at breakfast during the 2014 UK doll convention on the England-Wales border.
Here, Varvara is using Lucy’s body. The head-body attachment is fairly insecure. (She normally borrows Faina’s body, for which the Varvara head was designed.)
The camera sometimes has difficulty coping with the varied skin tomes of these dolls (and real people).
I sometimes just sit opposite them in the kitchen, just blown away with their life-like presence. They are unmoving, but it is as if their stillness is the illusion, not their realism.
Faina is my older sister (from Russia). Rebecca is, as far as I know, the oldest ‘living’ Realdoll, having been manufactured in September 2000. She is — and always will be — my top doll.
Eleanor is my eldest daughter, Lina is the maid, and Angela a teacher here at Stepford-on-Sea finishing school for girls.
Eva is my youngest daughter (named after me, but there is no resemblance — fortunately) and Meotzi is my middle daughter.
In addition to Annabelle and Cynthia, reflected in the mirrors are Laura, Joanna, and Anoushka.
Anoushka and Joanna, with Annabelle out of focus and, more indistinct, Anoushka again and Cynthia.
