I had bought the Iple grey/white petdoll kitty quite a while ago with intentions of him being Adso, but he was never a perfect fit. He was a little small, and I always saw Adso as full grey, not grey/white. (Pic below is Claire with Adso v.1)
I was trolling Denver Doll the other day looking at petdolls to use with my DT Elf girls, when I spotted a Zuzu delf kitty that was pure grey with stripes. Much more as I saw Adso in my head. I noted by his measurements that he was a little bigger than the Iple Pet kitties, so ordered him hoping he might make a better Adso for my bigger Claire. He arrived yesterday and while his features are much more "anime" than needed to make him perfect for the role. I think he's still pretty darn cute.
If I'm creative with the angles so his eyes don't show in line with hers, I think he might work.
And one last shot of him with the Iple kitty for comparison sake.
I've wanted to do a series of photos of Fergus with Claire for a while now, inspired by Season 2 of the TV show, the Faith episode...………..when Fergus wakes up with nightmares and Claire finally finds out the reasoning behind Jamie's fight with Black Jack. Finally got around to taking those photos this morning.
As I was going through old pictures I realized I don't think I've ever posted pictures of my "Geillis" here. She is actually a doll I use in my "Black Dagger Brotherhood" world, but since I didn't use her that often in that capacity, I decided when I first decided to shell Outlander characters that she could do double duty as Geillis in the Outlander world. I have to say I do quite like her in this role and need to get her back out for some new pics.
My version of Claire's surgery is certainly a work in progress, but I thought I would do a post to share what I have been able to put together so far. Most of the props have come from Hobby Lobby in various excursions there ( back before social distancing).
The shelves and paneling were all found at Hobby Lobby along with the table in the middle of the shelves and 3/4 of the items on the shelves/table. I did knit the rug on the floor and the candlestick is an American Girl prop.
Most of her books were obtained from various sources on Etsy.
The table in this shot is from American Girl. And the mortal and pestle was a gift from a friend.
Since its rainy and nasty here today, and not at all conducive to taking new photos I thought I'd revisit some older photos, add some new edits and share pictures of Jamie and Claire in their wedding attire, as I realized I hadn't posted any pictures of them on their "wedding day" here.
Jamie's outfit was one of the first outfits I had commissioned. Sisen Designs did his vest and jacket. Robyn at Period Threads did his shirt and Becky Unger did his kilt and plaid. His wig was done by Chewin.
Jamie's outfit is pretty close to what he wears in the show...……….Claire's not so much, but I bought Harace's wedding outfit from the Carved Heritage line when I had the chance, so decided it would have to do. It's a truly gorgeous gown and looks beautiful on Claire I think.
This particular sculpt captures Claire's reluctance to be a bride well, IMHO.
They are a beautiful pair.
You can see the back of Jamie's "wedding wig" here. Chewin did a gorgeous job on it.
