She is every bit as amazing in person as she looked in the promotional pictures! ^__^ I haven't put her in her fancy armour yet, since I don't have anywhere suitable to display her at the moment. But, since she is a doll, she is going to get a proper set of box opening pictures. ;)
Yay shipping box!

The detail in her face- really amazing stuff! I'm 99% sure that her face is based on a real person- she reminds me of an actress, but I can't for the life of me think what her name is. But, the eyes and the lips have been done so well that it's not just a creepy passing resemblance thing- she actually looks like a living person. The only thing that spoils the illusion a little is her hair, which- while it's very soft- still has the typical 'doll' flyaways. I'm hoping I'll be able to improve them with some styling later on.
Overall, though- she's very impressive! I can't wait to get a proper case for her to live in (since the sillicone skin means she'll pick up dust like nobody's business), and then I can get the armour on her and play around properly!
All she needs now is a name. I'm not going to rush it, though, because I want to find a good one that will suit her properly. So, it needs to be something suitably 70s/80s fantasy novel-ish, but not so cheesy that it makes me feel uncomfortable. :P
Suggestions will be welcome.
I can't wait for Lady Death to arrive, now. ^__- She's still on pre-order, but at least I know that I'll get one when they start shipping!
In Other News:
I had a fun day re-organising my finances, partly because of this lovely lady, and partly because our water bill arrived. We pay it yearly, so it's always good for a laugh when it shows up. -__-; Mind you, it is nice to actually be able to afford stuff now, and not melt into a puddle of complete panic every time a new bill lands on the door mat. >_>;
I also handled Rambo for a little while, and watered my bonsai trees. Oh, and I set up a new twitter account, because my personal one (@she_man) is probably not entirely work appropriate. ^__-. So, I set up @AegisImmemorial, which I will use to promote my book once it is finished. I'm still assuming that it will be self-published at this point, so having a proper, more appropriately named feed for it is probably a good idea!
