Worms, itadakimasu!

The dolly shape from All Dolled uP is perfect for skins that border on the lush and macabre, and this skin from Ravenwear is no exception. I like the way in which the hand-drawn lashes accentuate the dolly's large eyes, and the way the mottle-colored lips look as though she's been thoughtfully chewing beetles.

Mmm, juicy and full of protein. Speaking of beetles, I've actually consumed silk worms, fried, in Chiangmai while visiting some relatives. They were tasty, especially deep-fried in curry batter. The internal consistency of silk worms is much like walnuts.

Gustitorial diversions aside, the dolly shape also sent me hunting for a short skirt to properly show off a dolly's chibi proportions. I asked Tomo, who pointed me to the correct area of Falln, and I found this adorable wee dolly kimono. Jackal once again helped me fit the waist prims -- the woman has a prim editing addiction! -- and I was all suited up for a gothic Japanese girl's day (granted, a month-ish late).

Worms? Itadakimasu!

Hm. More Western gothic than Eastern. But cute. :)
