    Date of acquisition:
    10/16/2019
    Provenance:
    I believe I am the head's second owner, but I bought the body directly from Mirodoll.
    Reason for choice:
    The body was originally for another character, but I decided to use this body for Liam because it was a cheap body and I would rather do heavy modifications on a less expensive body. I happened upon the AS Daniel head in the marketplace and it was love at first sight, I had to have him.
    Best Points:
    His face sculpt!
    Worst Points:
    Poseability.
    The mods that have been done on Liam include:
    -Female-to-Male chest modification (sanding down the breasts with a dremel, sanding to smooth them out, and then using tacky glue and watercolors/pastels to create top surgery scars)
    -whole body dyeing (WS to NS, to match the head)

    The other mods I have planned include hot glue sueding for better poseability, tattoos, and body blushing. IMG_20191116_152259.jpg

    Liam's parents were born and raised in Ireland, as were their parents and grandparents. His mother, Aideen Kelly, and his father, Fintan McNamara, met as children at the neighborhood First Presbyterian Church. Aideen was the minister's daughter, and Fintan's family were longtime attendees. They grew up together, becoming high school sweethearts and eventually getting married right after graduation.

    Aideen was a very loud, excitable person who loved learning and creating art. She was often the type to point out clouds and insist she saw animals and shapes in them. More than anything, she wanted to be a mother.

    Fintan was studious, very serious, and quiet, even as a child. Aideen brought out a playful side to him; as children they shared many inside jokes and spent hours hiding in closed off corridors in the church, goofing off during service.

    They had their first child, a girl they named Brigid, shortly after getting married. After Brigid was born, Fintan began studying to be an engineer. During his schooling, they would have three more children before Liam was born: Máire, Fintan, named after their father, and Connor.

    After Connor was born, Fintan Sr. was offered an engineering job in the United States. Aideen, two months pregnant with their fifth child, was anxious about travelling so far without solid plans in place, so Fintan Sr. flew to the United States alone for three months. During this time, he began renting a large apartment in Seattle, Washington. When he was settled, he sent for his family.

    Liam was born as Alanna Marie McNamara, the only child of Fintan and Aideen to be born in the United States. The youngest of five children, he was doted on heavily not only by his parents, but his siblings as well.

    Liam was not like any of the McNamaras' four other children. He was often silent and preferred playing on his own (which he often did). He was slow to learn to speak, and even when he learned to speak, he usually preferred not to. Aideen was very concerned about Liam's development and worried about his inability to play with other children. He also rebelled from a young age, throwing huge tantrums when he was forced into dresses for church.

    Despite Liam's distaste for social interaction and lace-y church frocks, his older sisters often dressed him up like a little doll. His older brothers refused to involve Liam in their games, as the games were "boys only". When Liam started school, he was immediately labeled as a problem child due to his tantrums and his difficulty following directions. After Liam's diagnosis of autism at the age of six, Aideen pulled him and Connor out of public school to homeschool them. The eldest three children remained in public school.

    Liam was a difficult child, but he was extremely bright. He was incredibly good at math and science from a young age, but struggled with arts and crafts. He was the only child who did well in English, having grown up learning both English and Irish. As a child, he was fascinated with anatomy, and this interest followed him into adulthood. He loved collecting animal skulls and creating stories about them.

    Liam always knew he was a boy, even as his family raised him to be a girl. As a little kid, he insisted his mother call him Dillon, although he didn't. He could often be found playing in the mud or stealing his older brothers' toys. It wasn't until he was fifteen that he realized that he was trans-- he would keep this a secret from his family until he was eighteen.

    Liam's coming out was graceless. Máire, his sister, had revealed to his family that she was a lesbian a few years before. While their parents weren't completely comfortable discussing it, they accepted her and tried to be welcoming to Máire's girlfriends in college. Liam told Máire first, then his brothers, and then Brigid, his eldest sister. While Máire, Connor, and Fintan all reassured Liam that they loved him no matter how he identified, Brigid was the most religious of all of his siblings, and she did not approve. Brigid outed Liam to their parents, who were shocked.

    Aideen and Fintan Sr. both had a very difficult time coming to terms with Liam's transition. Aideen was more understanding than Fintan, and came around more quickly. Liam decided on his name to honor his grandfather, the minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Ireland. Aideen warmed up to the idea much more after this, although she did struggle a bit with the name change. She accompanied Liam to endocrinologist appointments and to hormone referrals. When Liam was twenty, he changed his name to Liam Naoise McNamara. It would be another year before Fintan Sr. would address him with the correct name.

    Liam's transition caused a rift in their family. Outraged by Liam's decisions, Brigid purposely and cruelly would call him by his dead name and misgender him. His siblings would argue amongst each other during holidays and family dinners, and ultimately, Brigid disowned Liam as her family and stopped attending family events.

    The loss of his sister hurt him, but Liam thrived after beginning his transition. He got his top surgery after six months of HRT. Liam is currently a pathology intern at a Seattle hospital morgue, studying and hoping to become a forensic pathologist. He is a very content person, often listening to true crime podcasts, eating almost exclusively strawberry poptarts and bananas, and sending awful memes to his boyfriend, Etienne.
