I am a new mother again! Well, not exactly, but close. I have adopted a Vamplet! She arrived last week, along with an adoption certificate and her baby bottle of disappearing blood. I still have to find her a coffin crib.
This is Lily Rose Shadowlyn, in her limited edition ballet tutu (and diaper):
Isn't she adorable??? I can hardly wait for my son to meet his new baby sister!! ;-)
As you can see, Vamplets are baby vampires. I've been wanting one for about two years now, but could never "justify" the buying of a stuffed toy for myself. However, I've finally come to my senses and realized that there is NO reason I shouldn't have one! So now she will be company for my Skelanimal bunny rabbit that I bought in a private LJ sale a few months ago:
As you know, I also have a Goth "Barbie" doll, for whom I make clothes from remnants, and for whom I will soon start making furniture now that I have a pattern. Goth-themed furniture, of course.
Too old for toys? MEH. Nonsense, no one is too old to play! When we lose our sense of fun and play, then we are truly dead. Or when we stop breathing, whichever comes first. I think I'd rather do that.
