Thank you Oleg, Irina, and friends!

     My many, many thanks to Oleg and Irina of Anatomical Doll, and to the various un-named people of Our Doll Community for the beautiful gift of Feodora, the Face 3 Body 3 Anatomical Doll. She was presented to me at the 2010 Dollstock doll meet in Pennsylvania.

     Special thanks to Mahtek for allowing me to ride with him to the meet and back. Special thanks to Euchre who did all of my heavy lifting.

     I was asked to read a scroll at the meeting on Friday, November 5, 2010. The scroll contained these words:



Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

     Let it be known to all in attendance of this annual meeting of doll folk, friends, and interested parties, That a special gift has been granted from the wonderful persons of Oleg and Irina from Anatomical Doll and various other Un-named parties at Our Doll Community.

     Feodora is a Russian name meaning "Empress" or "Gift of God" depending on the translation. Only the most beautiful and worthy women bear this name.

     On this day, one who has proven his devotion to the hobby and community over the years, shall be rewarded.

     Now you can stop reading this, turn around, and say hello to your new doll, Feodora! :)

     At first I did not understand what it all meant, and I said that there was no name. KA (ourdoll1) said, "You are the one reading the scroll!" I said, "You have got to be kidding me!"

     Incred used his power screwdriver to remove the wood screws from the cover panel of the doll crate. Once the cover panel was removed I could see the very beautiful Feodora through the plastic inner cover. I mentioned that she had a Teddy Bear, and everyone laughed. Snuggles had snuck in and was putting the moves on Feodora!

     Camp brought over the doll stand that Incred and he and made. He told me that they were also giving me the stand!

     We removed the plastic cover. Incred, KA and Camp helped me get Feodora out of her case and unto her doll stand. It was not until that moment that the truth of it all really struck home, and I gave Feodora a big bear hug. Everyone applauded and took pictures.

     Everyone had a chance to look her over. We had never seen an Anatomical Doll in person, and all were amazed at the detail of Oleg's sculpting and and Irina's makeup. We took her out by the Black Bear where Incred and Camp put her to work modeling for us. We specifically wanted pictures by the Black Bear for Oleg (blackbear). Incred took some pictures for the CoverDoll magazine. He showed me some of his techniques for his outstanding photos.

     Again I would like to thank Oleg and Irina for this beautiful doll. I also thank those who contributed toward her purchase, and Incred and Camp for picking her up and delivering her to the Dollstock venue. Extra thanks to Incred and Camp for the gift of the doll stand. Without the help of my friends, I most likely would never have been able to get to the meet, or ever own such a beautiful doll. Special thanks to KA and Mrs C. You are wonderful beyond all for all that you have done.

(We will have to wait a couple of months for that shoot. We have Muzza's AD for this months CoverDoll.)

OK just one teaser  :-*

     Again I would like to thank Oleg and Irina for this beautiful doll. I also thank those who contributed toward her purchase, and Incred and Camp for picking her up and delivering her to the Fin Fur and Feather Bed & Breakfast.


Our pleasure Noq. Although a bit of nail biting on the delivery time, all went pretty smoothly.

Not much room in the Incredivan for a crate.

Guess she was a tag-a-long  ;)

Clarification

     Although the Anatomical Doll Feodora was a gift to me through the generosity of the forum membership, I do not think of her as my personal property. To me, she is the property of Our Doll Community, and I treat her with the respect of property loaned to me to keep in trust. I have already made arrangements that, upon my demise or incapacitation, she will be returned to Our Doll Community, and the Town Council will decide her fate. In that regard I will never sell her or give her to anyone else.

     Of course that means that if anyone wants a free doll, all they have to do is bump me off and see if they are the lucky recipient of this doll.   ;)

;D ;D ;D

     Although Oleg offered this doll at a reduced price, and the membership here did contribute to her purchase and shipping, the end result was that I did received her without payment (for free). Human nature being what it is, some could be jealous of this. Comments on that other thread could be turned around and used against Our Doll Community. There is no limit to the deviousness of some people. I think we all know who "some people" might be.

     I do continue to be thankful to Oleg and to the membership here for this gift. Please do not mistake my caution for anger.

from ourdoll1 (KA) at http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=1395.msg20035#msg20035:

     Just to be sure everyone knows how Feodora ended up with noquiexis.  When Oleg offered a reduced price doll with his "guys & dolls" program, we set parameters on deciding who got it.  1) the person did {not} have a silicone doll,  2) it had to be a 'long time' member of the doll community *in general*  3) the person had no real prospect of getting a silicone doll any time in the near future.    With these guidelines, we got some names together, and noquiexis ended up being the winner.

  That also means that if another doll becomes available, then noquiexis will no longer be in the running  :P
