Meara is a selkie--a seal who can assume human form out of the ocean. Her specific character is the title character from the book "Seal Child" by Sylvia Peck, here: Seal Child
- Face-up artist(s):
- DreamingDoll Company Default
- Date of acquisition:
- Body - 12/15/14; Head - 6/14/16
- Body was purchased secondhand from DOA marketplace as part of a Luts KDF Kiwi. The head was purchased directly from the DreamingDoll website.
- Reason for choice:
- This headsculpt with the default faceup looks almost identical to the painted illustration on the cover of a children's book I loved as a kid: "Seal Child." I have always adored that painting and character, so when I saw the sculpt it was an instant decision. I put her on the KDF body because, a) I already owned it and DD sells both full dolls AND only heads, b) I wanted a more immature body than the standard DD one, but their smaller bust version does not have the lower torso joint I prefer.
- Best Points:
- Literally almost everything. She looks, and moves, and seems exactly as I had envisioned when I purchased the head to complete the character.
- Worst Points:
- She has a smaller than average head for an MSD, so finding the right wig to complete the look is giving me trouble.
She is gentle-spirited but also very curious and cheerful. Everything about people and land life fascinates her, and she loves to try new things. She wears what her friends give her, and often mixes and layers clothing that makes very little sense together.
- Head Sculpt:
- DD Little Elva Leia
- Normal Skin
- Luts Kid Delf old style girl body (small bust)
