Rainy Days and Mondays

      This was a Monday. We had some light rain this morning, and Feodora was in a bit of a blue mood.

"Rain does not usually get me down."

"I wonder why I am so blue."

"What can I do to lift this mood?"

I suggested that she put on some music to see if it might help lift her spirits.

      Shunka, her pet puppy, also tried to cheer her up. It was also very humid, but cool. By the half-way point in the shoot I felt like I needed a second shower. I did have to wash my face, hands, and arms to keep from getting sweat on Feodora's clothes.

      Feodora still felt a little down, so I suggested that she change into some brighter clothes to see if that might help.

      She said, "This plant looks a little thirsty!" and decided to water it. While setting up this part of the photo shoot, I managed to knock an entire glass of water onto Zintkala, my parakeet. She was not a happy camper!

"You know, I think this plant is really starting to grow!"

"Hello Zintkala! Pretty bird!"

      The sun was beginning to come out, and in a little while Feodora was back to her usual cheerful self. She said, "I feel so much better! I think I will go shopping!" She was out the door before I could say 'Jack Robinson'!


Feodora's other photo shoots can be accessed from this index.

      Feodora Verochka Tychovich is a life-sized platinum-cured silicone rubber doll. She was produced by Oleg Bratkov (a gifted sculptor) and his beautiful wife Irina (excellent makeup artist), at Anatomical Doll in Vladivostok, Russia. Feodora has Face 3 and Body 3 of their product line. She has a fully articulated skeleton and can pose in most natural ways that a human can pose. There are 'stops' on the skeleton that prevent her from posing in unnatural ways. This also helps to prevent damage to the silicone.
