Background: Little is known about the childlike owner of the Sakura Tea Room. She inherited the mansion from her late grandmother and lived alone in it for an indeterminate amount of time before converting it into a restaurant. Although she's said to be a bit of a recluse, Leene enjoys the company of her patrons and has established personal relationships with all of them. But she doesn't invite just anybody into her home....
Comments: I couldn't decide whether to give Leene green, white or silver hair ^o^! The silver hair won out because I had an extra bag left over from another project (that I haven't done yet ^___^). Noix de Rome silver hair is quite different from the Volks silver I initially intended to buy. It's finer and has a distinctive metallic sheen, while the Volks silver appears more gray. It's kind of hard to use but I love the way it looks. It feels a lot like that hair they use to root some Excelinas...
I'm not sure how old Leene is ^___^. Physically, she appears to be fourteen or fifteen. She's the first doll I tried painting eyeliner on. It's white, and I don't think it looks too bad. On her practice head, it was red O_o....
I'm not sure what kind of outfit to give her, but I want it to be soft and flowing. I'll probably have to draft a pattern for her....sigh..;_;.....but since she's my mascot girl, it'll be worth it.
