Phin & Lucas and..



My two Tonner Phin boys are getting a pal. I impulse-bought another Phin today (what am I like?)  I read somewhere that only 150 of these boys were ever made. I'm not sure if that's true, but I'll have three of them.

My first, Phin, has black hair.  My second, Lucas now has brown hair, and the new boy will be a blond.

I've been tweaking some old fur wigs to fit Lucas today.  I had a blond one which was a size too big, and a brown one which was meant for  Blythe.  Now I've remodelled both, and have started cutting them to style.

Here's the one Lucas gets to keep:



It's still dripping wet, but I'll finish it off tomorrow.  It's a nicer brown than the one he already has and matches his eyebrows better.

I'll show the blond one when I've finished faffing with it.

The new guy will have to have a name. I quite like Thaddeus or Jeremiah, maybe Jerome; but not sure yet.  Maybe he'll tell me a name once he gets here.  :)

I must resist buying a fourth one just because I want a redhead.......

.... hmmm.....

  1. The black haired Phin was a limited edition of 150 -I think he was the one from the Convention. There was another dressed Phin who was an edition of 500 and the basic Phin which wasn't a limited edition - no idea how many of him there were - it doesn't say - you can still access the Imperium Park pages on WI - http://www.wildeimagination.com/content/gone-not-forgotten-2
    The wig on Lucas is much better... looking forward to seeing Mr Blondie..... (and Mr Redhead when he arrives.... you're as bad as me!!!)

    1. Thanks for that link and info Trish! I always like to get my facts right.

      I'm so, so tempted to try inserting glass eyes, after a convo I had on Facebook with a couple of Phin enthusiasts. I seem to recall someone on Flickr used to do it with Ell dolls, was it Val?

    2. It was Debbie (Debi Doo Doll on flickr) who used to do the glass eyes on Ell. I'm sure you could do it - it's always scared me... I'd be afraid of ruining the doll - and I'd probably end up cutting myself rather than the doll!!!!

    3. Ahh that's right. I remember now. It scares me too, but I've seen some nice examples of the Phin doll with glass inset eyes. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tonner-Imperium-Park-Phin-from-Wilde-Weekend-with-Glass-Eyes-LE-150-/171417128372

      and http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tonner-Ellowyne-Wilde-Imagination-Imperium-Park-PHINEAS-BENNETT-with-Glass-Eyes-/171192511686

      They haven't been repainted though, which would really make them look good I think.
