I have just revised my concept for Infinity [who is inevitable, now that he has a name]. Instead of being black and wearing white, he would have alternating black and white parts like so:
Body picture is from Lumedoll’s Web site, a photo of Lumedoll Lumelight Koit on the slim body. Head picture is from a photo of Lumelight Mini Zero on same site. Please ignore the wig. Infinity will have a fur wig, black on the left as you look at him, white on the right as you look at him, of course. No clothes or faceup, just selectively spray-painted limbs.
I imagine that Infinity will disturb the small populations even more than Timonium, especially because he is a playful ham who likes to pretend to be a zombie/puppet/shadow and follow people around, mimicking them. I see him becoming good friends with Ginevra, however, and with Submit, who’s one of the most open-minded on the shelf. I also see him especially pestering Mellifer, since he can get a big reaction out of him. I also see everyone having a group discussion in which they tell Infinity that he has to stop freaking out Mellifer.
He also doesn’t speak, which means that putting him in photostories will be interesting. I foresee subtitles or special effects [motion lines? blurred body parts?] for "[nodding]," "[shaking head]," "[waving]," etc.
Mellifer: "Stop pretending to be some sort of creepy doll."
Infinity: [puts hands on hips, cocks head]
Ginevra [to Mellifer]: "You do realize that you can’t ask people to stop being what they are, right?"
Infinity: [points thumb at Ginevra, nods head to the side in her direction]
Mellifer: "Never mind…"
Ginevra [to Infinity]: "And you… You do realize that I’m your only friend around here because everyone thinks you’re an annoying pest, right?"
Infinity: [hangs head, clasps hands behind back]
Mellifer: "See? Now I have no idea if you’re really sorry or if you’re just pretending to be as one of your tricks."
Infinity: [continues to hang head]
Mellifer: "Are you actually sorry?"
Infinity: [nods slowly]
Mellifer: "How can I tell?!"
Ginevra: "He’s sorry. He’s trying to show you that he’s serious by nodding slowly."
Infinity: [points to Ginevra, applauds, nods more quickly]
Mellifer: "How do you know? The dude has no face!"
Infinity: [holds up middle finger to Mellifer, stomps off]
Ginevra: "Because I actually pay attention to people and get to know them, unlike some of us that I COULD mention!"
Mellifer: [throws up hands] "Arrrrgh!" [stomps off in opposite direction]
Ginevra: "Well, that went well."
Oh yeah, and apparently he doesn’t pester Timonium because he has a huge crush on him, which means that he constantly enlists other people to give Timonium presents from him.
Infinity: [taps Jareth on arm]
Jareth: "Hey, what’s up?"
Infinity: [gives pretty marble]
Jareth: "Ah…thank you."
Infinity: [shakes head, points to marble, then points to Timonium]
Jareth: "You want me to give it to him?"
Jareth: "I don’t understand why."
Infinity: [makes shooing motions]
Jareth: "Wait a minute…YOU give it to him."
Infinity: [shakes head vigorously]
Jareth: "Why not?"
Infinity: [shivers exaggeratedly]
Jareth: "You’re cold? You’re scared?"
Infinity: [looks down]
Jareth: "Did he upset you or hurt you or something?"
Infinity: [shakes head]
Jareth: "You need to tell me a little more here. I’m confused."
Jareth: "You’re embarrassed? Worried?"
Infinity: [nods a little bit, blushes more]
Jareth: "You didn’t have a problem giving it to me. What is it about Timonium — ?"
Infinity: [blushes even more]
Jareth: "Got a crush on him, huh?"
Infinity: [immediately vacates premises]
Jareth: "Hey, you forgot your marble!"
