I have been meaning, for the past several weeks, to do a solo gallery shoot for Janus. He's been looking extra dapper in his suit (now that he has a proper tie) and I love to show him off. Especially now that hounds (and all dollshe sculpts) have become rare creatures; when we got Janus it seemed like hounds were as common as peanuts. Well, expensive peanuts. We got Janus second-hand. He had been ordered by his first owner with the works from Tensiya, fully sanded and faceuped, but he arrived to us with not much to his name and we spent a long time trying to gather up the parts of his standard dress that had not been sold with him (the chain pants, the white lace shirt, the necklace).
His arrival date to us was October 5, 2005. It was two years before I got the nerve to redo his faceup. He's always been priceless to us, but now, he really is. We're so lucky to have this doll: the mysterious, quiet, content Uncle Drosselmeyer of our little resin group.( +15 )
