More Resin Dads to Meet
On This Father’s Day
Posted June 19, 2011
The House of Beamlette has added a few more dads since last year, and so we present them on their special day…
(And a link to last year’s post: In Honor of Father's Day )
Alma’s stepfather Gray Kielbaugh, and father to her younger half-siblings, Daria and Leo – they all say he’s the BEST father in the world (and he is; adopting Alma when he married Ruth; hard-working and always there for his family) –
(Gray is a Luts SD Abadon, with face-up by Christy Allum; Daria is a Volks SD16 Pearl head on SD13 body; Leo is a Volks SD10 FCS Sunlight F-39, with face-up by me.)
Irsfeld Halloran, father to Linux, husband to Janet Tait, and stepdad to Fenchurch. He’s been Janet’s partner in their gemstone business for years; recently they took the marital plunge. He’s a devoted dad, who can quiet fussy little Linux’s crying with a softly-crooned rendition of “It’s Only a Paper Moon” –
Irsfeld: *low voice*
…It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me…
(Irsfeld is an old-style WS Hound with a Tensiya face-up.)
Then there’s Tancredi’s Uncle Verdigris Lauvergeon, younger brother to Marjolaine, and father to 16-year Cunégonde, who, not surprisingly, is FAR from consoled by HER father’s croonings!
Cunégonde: Only eef you LEAVE ze pic-ture, papa! I am em-bar-rassed enough as eet ees *hmph*.
From time to time, Shulamith’s father, Stefan Grigore, makes an appearance; no doubt he wants something –
Stefan: So, girl, how about a smile for your father, then? And a little cut’a yer take would sweeten my day even more, heh –
Shulamith: A smile’s too much work. Take the money and go, the sooner, the better.
Stefan: Ain’t you the sentimental one! An’ earned your noogies, too **applies knuckles**.
(Stefan is an Elfdoll limited edition tan K.)
Berenike: Now, now, it’s YOUR father and grandfather he’s visiting; they may not both be around come next Father’s Day, so let them have a little special time together.
Berenike: Aren’t you being a little dramatic? Most of the time I see you behind a desk; looks pretty tame to me.
Berenike: Time to ask for hazard pay – eh, Lucifer?
Moncrieff Sinclair is father to (l. to r.) Lytton, Antigone and Valentine; and brother to Basil and Deirdre. The embodiment of the phrase “absentminded professor,” he sometimes forgets he has three children – or ANY children, period!
Lytton: All I’m saying, Father, is that we’re not all cut out for university. Ask me later – maybe in ten, twenty years *shrug* –
Moncrieff: Oh? Er, well then, I suppose your brother and sister could use the money…
Antigone: Start saving your liquor money, Lyt! Don’t you touch MY uni fund! *snicker*
Valentine: *sigh* Father has probably misplaced ALL our funds…
Moncrieff: *distractedly* Now where did I put that paper?...
Lytton: *to self* Heh…I may have made a miscalculation here –
Antigone: Not to worry, Val; we’ve got a couple years to find the funds –
Valentine: Then… we’d better start looking now –
Lytton: Gahhhh, my head hurts… I need a drink, NOW **scuttles away**.
Antigone: You keep an eye on Lytton, and I’ll look after Dad –
Valentine: Oh, but you’re better at dealing with Lytton… actually, you’re better at dealing with BOTH of them!
Antigone: Oh, all right then – but for that I should get a bigger cut!
Moncrieff: Ah… I think I found the paper… I think…hmmmm…
(Lytton is a Dollshe Bermann head on a Hound body, with face-up by Christy Allum; Moncrieff is a Dollshe Bermann, and also plays Belshunu the vampire; Antigone is a Dollshe April Agace. Photo on Moncrieff’s desk is of my father *wink*.)
Happy Father’s Day!
