Best Friends Forever

BFFs <3 (1 of 6)

Do you remember the surprise dolly addition that I mentioned last week? Well, here she is! I now have an Iplehouse SID Ashanti living here. :)

Some of you may recognize her—she used to be aEthEr hEad's Kendall. When I found out that aEthEr hEad was leaving the hobby, I realized I couldn't pass up the opportunity and asked if she would consider letting me adopt Kendall so that she could come live with her BFF. You see, Emily and Kendall struck up a great friendship when Emily was visiting for her face-up; they even had their first photo session together when Em was there.

I'm so happy that Emily has her best friend living here now. I bet they'll be getting into all sorts of mischief. ;)

I also feel so lucky that I was able to bring Kendall home. I've been a huge fan of hers for a long time and think she is one of the most beautiful Ashantis I've ever seen. I'm beyond excited!

I've been trying to come up with a name for my new girl. I love her orginal name—Kendall—but I think I would feel like I was stealing someone else's character if I kept her name from her first owner. Maybe I could keep "Kendall" as her last name as a nod to her origins. Hmm…I like that idea.

Anyway, these are the names I've come up with so far:

  1. Ava
  2. Angie
  3. Jo
  4. Shel
  5. Shelly
  6. Shea (pronounced "Shay")
  7. Lynn

It's hard not to think of her as Kendall though. haha

Edited to add (01/14/12): I was watching some Firefly today and realized that "Gina" (after the actress who plays Zoe in the show) might also be a good name. Kendall even resembles the actress a bit, I think. :)

    I think the name Shea is a perfect choice. Shea Kendall has a ring to it.

    Your photo shoots are always so well done. You have an incredible talent.

    Happy new year Kara. I really miss your storytelling but am so happy you share your amazing images.

    I love Kendall and Emily. I went and looked at their photo shoot when Emily visited her and how lucky you are to have her. She is a gorgeous addition to you doll family. Also I LOVE the outfit!!!! Now isn't it funny I am going to suggest the name Shea also. I had that picked out before I read gayl's entry. I agree. Also I thought of Shea Lynn Kendall. As usual you have done a wonderful job with the light in the background and all of the setups for this photo shoot. Great jobl :XO: :up:

    @gayl: Hi, Gayl! It's great to see you! *hugs* Thank you so much! I've actually gotten three votes for Shea so far. :)

    Oh, and I really hope to be able to continue my story this year. It's one of my goals. I've just got to figure out how to find the time for it. Wish me luck!

    @Mom: Thank you so much! I think they look awesome together. Now I just have to figure out which guy (Ethyn or Julian) I like best with her. ;)

    I will be thrilled if you find the time to write! I'm sure there are a lot of people who will be jumping for joy. You were and are one of the inspirations that got me started. The benchmark for me.

    I like Angie and Jo but maybe JoJo? One of my students nickname is JoJo and I like it ;)

  6. AtomicSpaceKitty says:

    @gayl: Oh, wow! Thank you for the wonderful compliment! I'm still trying to figure out how to work it into my schedule, but it's a priority to me, so I know I'll work something out even if all I do is post my stories without the illustrations, but that will be a last straw solution. :)

    @Lani: "Jojo" is a good name. I really like that. I'm also considering "Charlie". *sigh* I'll get her named eventually. ;)
