1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

    I prefer to make all of my doll clothes (except shoes, which I have tried and failed miserably at), so as of now Arina's wardrobe is not terribly expansive.
  • Name story:
    Arina was born to Ivan Lukyanovich and Elizabeth Ruth Bailey in Volgograd, Russia. Many Russian last names are simply the name of the father with different endings tacked on depending on the gender of the child, hence Ivanovna is Arina's last name. Her mother found it silly that she would take her husband's name but not her own, so they gave her the middle name Elizabeth. Arina is a Russian name which means "peace."
    Character age:
    early 20s (not yet specified)
    Character gender:
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is available for offsite roleplay.
    Arina comes across as very serious to most people, but she also has a bit of a rye and mischievous side that comes out when she is on her own or with people she knows very well. She is currently studying biology and takes great interest in her work. Eventually, she would like to work as a researcher, preferably studying the migratory patterns of birds and their connection to pollution. Her father used to take her bird watching when she was younger, which is what first sparked this interest. When she was 16, she rescued an abandoned calandra lark and named him Toby. Although she is interested in animals, she isn't one to take particular interest in pets, but Toby is is the exception. Arina is highly intelligent within her chosen field, but is not particularly knowledgeable of matters outside of her interest. Those who do not know her well commonly find her singular focus off-putting, but her friends realize that she can be quite charming once they get her to shut up about birds.
