I was busy with other things and, other than taking a moment to insert temporary eyes and try the head on a Minifee body already dressed in Mariah's clothing, I set her aside. It's hard to get a feel for the character of a blank head before they receive a faceup.
Zenawii Tulusson seemed to be pretty pleased that his wife was home though, faceup or not.
Then late one night her name and character suddenly came to me. I resisted, but she insisted! In fact she was adamant that I not introduce her publicly until I had created a traditional folk costume for her befitting her family heritage.
Her name is Elfonda Schelf. That's right, she comes from rather famous lineage. You have probably met some of her relatives.
