The doll was getting more and more charming to me. The bitter-sweetness in her was getting stronger and stronger, so the shooting went really smooth and so did the editing too! Everything’s done within half a day and I passed those photos to Kenji quickly by email.
Kenji replied my email with another challenge: name and description of the doll.
“You can write up a story for her if you like,” he said over the phone when I emailed him and asked what the description should cover.
That isn’t something easy! I might end up with an essay to explain every details of the girl, or just a few sentences to conclude the theme only but nothing else. After a long thought, I decided to have a go with something poem-like, though I had never written anything similar ever since I finished my primary school (and those that I wrote were relatively childish too).
It wasn’t hard to imagine the difficulty that I had. As a non-native speaker, even though I could read and understand quite much, still it wouldn’t be the same when it comes to writing, not to mention about writing a poem. Here I would like to take the chance to express my sincere thanks to my dear friends, without them, I bet I wouldn’t be able to finish the description~!
About the name, the first chocolate related name that came to my mind at that moment was “agnès b. DÉLICES” so I kind of named the doll “DÉLICES” and emailed Kenji everything. He too acted very quickly and got everything published in Chinese in his original blog and also Toyxcapacity, but thanks to his frequent typo, the name finally became DÃLICES… lol
Doll design by: Kenji ; Costume design by: Quini
In the tiny Castle upon the hill
that made by Chocolate forever Sweet;
Princess of Love, a busy bee,
flying around her magic pan,
preparing her favorite with all her heart
that makes you melt with bittersweet
whenever you taste her sugary treats!
It’s time to rest for a bit but I was sure Kenji would come up with something again very soon.
