Quite a while back - a month or so - I jokingly made a little sofa out of an empty package of panty liners... (Oh, don't give me that look! All you girls got them!) At the time it was just a joke, since I'm expecting a little boy I thought he'd not exactly like the idea of having a sofa made of that... xD But it was good sized (I think) and a good shape, so I've been looking at it now and then thinking that 'hm...maybe I COULD make that into a decent sofa...' So a few layers of duct tape and some fabric later - voila! A sofa!
As for the boy...Crobidoll told me yesterday that they'll send him next week!
He is the child version of Aria of course, but Aria wasn't called Aria at the time he was that age - he picked that name up later - so after turning the thing over and over in my head, I figured that since he's the bastard son of a noble living at an orphanage in the slums, the other kids would probably view him as sort of a 'faux noble'. But calling a kid 'Fool's gold' sounds kind of weird, and Pyrite is way too advanced for some street rats... So I settled for Brass, which basically means the same thing (and have more meanings, which are perfect for his fate later in life...) and Brazzle when he's done something good.
Little Brazzle is on his way soon, and he'll have his own room (and sofa) waiting for him when he arrives!
Now, he has boots, but no clothes... Maybe that ought to be the next project after the Kid Delf clothes I'm hoisting up on Etsy soon...
