  • Face-up artist(s):
    TJKardynal - Jan 2020
    Date of acquisition:
    Head - Jan 18, 2019. Body - Feb 2019
    Provenance:
    Head - bought on Luts website. Body - found on Y!J, and bought through Noppin.com.
    Reason for choice:
    I have long loved the Landy sculpt, and took the opportunity to order a head in Luts' winter 2018-19 event. I like the somewhat mischievous expressionist has.

    Peregrin was a Luts Delf Nanuri 2006 boy, whom I absolutely adored for many years. However, he began to look too "cartoony" in his Nanuri shell, so I finally let him go.
    Then, I shelled him as a Volks Cristal, but after a couple of years, he still didn't feel right - maybe a little too sad?

    I'm still getting used to the Landy sculpt. I hope it'll stick... But, heh... I have other possible ideas for the character too... oh woe
    Best Points:
    Gorgeous head! I really don't know why not more people own this beautiful sculpt. TJ actually colour matched the much lighter luts resin to the more mellow Volks NS.
    Lovely, well-designed SDGr boy body. It came with the full Volks treatment, sanding, coating, and precise sueding (pliver). The forearms have the extra muscle definition, and it makes him look more athletic.
    Worst Points:
    Could also wish for somewhat better motion range for the head on top of the neck. I may consider some slight modification to the neck opening for it.

    Peregrin and O'Carollan come from far away. They currently share a couple of rooms in a large rooming-house (owned by Marion).

    Peregrin (sometimes called "Pip") is an easy-going character. He's very accepting of people's quirks and has a knack for making almost anyone feel very comfortable. He connects well with both men and women, and he especially loves children and child-like people (Marbles, Peach, Clio, Tippy).
    He carries himself like a cat, ready to spring, very relaxed, and lounge-y. No one seems to have seen him exercise, jog or stretch, yet he has amazing flexibility and agility.
    He always seems to wear a slight half-smile on his face, as if the world perpetually amuses him. And, he has been known to play the occasional harmless prank on a fellow roomy. :)

    He cares greatly for O'Carollan, and empathizes with his struggles, but gives him room to work out his issues on his own.
