Sonya (yes, she has a name now!) and I went to JAFAX yesterday to meet with some of her brothers and sisters in spirit. Some time was spent wandering, and we stopped by DragonPrincess’s table in Artist’s Alley. She had two adorable girls with her, (drool over the forest sprite outfit, I esp want that wig!).
She saw Sonya and immediately lit up. “Kurenai!” I could see her wanting to make grabby motions, but she was politely restrained. *Grin* I let her hold Sonya, and after a bit we wandered off to look for the group we were supposed to meet up with. Stopped to look around for someone with an ABJD in their arms, the group actually walked right to us, and everyone seemed to radar into her before I could even say anything.
Sonya absolutely adored the attention, and has decided she needs a boyfriend asap. Clothes, too. At least she’s very sweet when she asks for something, otherwise I might be annoyed.
We left after a short photoshoot and chat. (It was very cool meeting everyone and seeing their “little ones”. I have about 80 new things to obsess for. heehee) The drive home was horrific. We had no gas, the trip was a last minute “Let’s just go” thing. There was construction, and some yutz decided to cut the freeway down to one lane, immediately after a ramp merge. Gah! We had to turn off the AC to save gas, and I think we coasted into the parking space at home as it was. 2 1/2 hours to drive out, close to 4 to drive back. The freeway was moving that s l o w. It was fun though, and Sonya got to meet lots of new friends.
Sonya has a new shirt. I finished it some time ago, and I’m really pleased with the result. A nice nearly invisible shoulder seam.
