Background: Marin is a headstrong girl from a community of mermaids. She has a human father and is the only one in her community who can disguise herself as a human.  She thinks that this makes her more worldly than the rest of her family and can be quite hard to get along with.  She spends most of her time by herself, and while almost everybody thinks she's just mean, she is just as hard on herself as she is on others, and is constantly striving to be "right".

Creator's Comments: I had originally rooted Marin's head with some leftover hair to sell, but when I was done I really liked the gold and blue combination, so I decided to keep her and give her my last New Excellent B body.   I finished her hair before I did my SH-11 doll Jenny, but I decided to put her away for a while.  I based her appearance and personality on the mermaid character from Legend of Mana, but I figured that if I kept her a mermaid forever she'd have a fish tail and never be able to change her clothes. ^^;;; I'm still trying to figure out what to do.

All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with how she turned out.   Her eyes are entirely done in green--I've done this with only limited success before, but I think it didn't turn out too badly.  I drew her eyes on in pencil right down to the last detail--it's the first time I've done that. Usually I just draw the outline of the eye on.  She doesn't look very kind, but she wasn't supposed to, so I guess that's fine. ^^ She reminds me a bit of Lost Angel Akari, which is too bad because I don't really like Akari, but maybe it's just her coloring.

Webmistress's Comments:  ^_^  I really love her hair!   Blue and yellow might seem like an odd combination for hair, but it looks refreshing and pretty ^_6.   If I rooted a doll with blue and yellow mesh too, would that be considered copying? ^____^

Leene's Comments:   We have a nice view of the sea from the east side of the mansion.  I wonder if that's why Marin-chan came here?  She wants the best of both worlds, I guess....^_^
