Another Christmas party. Gifts are exchanged and Edward and some of the girls sing Christmas carols in their corner
Others just listen and enjoy.
A new member of the doll theater was hired recently: The Artist Davinia, a non articulated Painter and stage designer. She´s a bit rough and straight forward , but a nice person, if you know her better.
The Miss Ghastly made their own corner as dark and gloomy as possible this year and were ready to quarrel like every Christmas- But then something unexpected happend:
They finally found a friend, with whom they can share their liking of darkness and gloomy things: Thekla the witch, who is now guest with her dragon Draco at the dusty room of Eve and Angeline. And uses some descret magic, to prevent the sisters from fighting again.
And while Angeline recites dark and sadly lyrics, the other girls have fun with excellent sweets and good wine.
Helena thinks about learning to play the trumpet.
And some other girls meet in the notorious “cozy corner”, where they can gossip on soft sheep furs…
“Have you seen Midnights gown and hat? What happened to her? She seems to have changed her style completely!”
“She has a personal style coach now! That woman did wonders on her”
“She lookes like a complete different person!”
But outside in the cold is someone….Watching the girls celebrate….
Someone lonely with yearning eyes,who wants to go in and find some friends and a new home.
But that´s not quite easy…
“There´s someone outside! I think it´s a man!”
“WHAT?” The girls are upset!
“Have you heard? They say, there´s a man outside!”
“It´s true! There IS a Man!”
“I thought men were extinct…Except Edward of course!”
“I could use my witchcraft on him!”
“No! Please don´t! It could be Mortimer!”
” I hope, he´s dressed this time!”
“Oh PLEASE! Not another one! Isn´t Edward enough?
But Edward thinks a bit different about the situation and decides, to go outside and talk to the stranger.
“Who are you and what are you doing here? Are you a kind of Peeping Tom?”
“No! I swear, I´m not! My name is Lee and I´m desperately in search of a new employment…”
“According to the jacket you wear, your last employment must have been a circus!”
“I´m a fashion designer!”
“Well….that explaines everything…You should better come inside. We already have a fashion designer named Elsa. She takes care for the girls theater costumes. But maybe she needs someone to help her….”
“Girls, we have an unexpected guest. His name´s Lee and he´s a fashion designer!”
“But Elsa is our designer…We don´t need another one!”
But Lee won´t give up that easy!
“Please! Don´t throw me out! I´m lonesome and homeless!”
“I´ll freeze to death, if you send me back on the streets!”
“Now look at him! What an excellent breakdown! He seems not only to be a fashion designer, but a very good actor too!”
“But would it be wise, to have another man here?”
“He looks, as if he ran away from a traveling circus! Have you seen his jacket and hairstyle?”
“Oh, come on girls! I like all of you very much, but I feel a bit lonely among so many women! I need a male friend at my side! I know, he looks a bit strange, but that can be changed in time!”
“So what! Let´s keep him for a while…And if we don´t like him, we can throw him out later! And we shouldn´t forget: It´s Christmas!”
“You mean, I can stay?”
“For the moment. And maybe forever, but the girls will watch you closely. So be careful, what you do…
What will happen to Lee?
We don´t know the future. But for now, he´s safe and warm at the doll theater. And the girls are self-satisfied with their generosity…..
MERRY CHRISTMAS 2018!
This time everyting went wrong. I had planed to provide the set a few days before Christmas, but never had the time. So I had to do in a grreat hurry within a few hours at the day before the holiday.
And I cheeted a bit about Lees arrival. Actually, he came month before Christmas, but I never made it , to set up a storyline for him.
The story also had to be very short and I needed so much time for the set´s providing, that I could only shoot after it got dark outside.
Therefore, the pictures are a bit greay. But I did my best, as always…
