Reserved Luna 4/28 Ichika Haunted Doll ~ 16" Antique Japanese Stockinette ~ Paranormal ~ Refined ~ Mature ~ Needs a Companion
Ichika came from a friend of Lisa's in Japan about 8 years ago. She had been passed down from grandmother to granddaughter, and the granddaughter did not want her. She was scared of her. Through a friend of a friend, Lisa was contacted and agreed to take her on. We all fell in love with her the moment she arrived. She is a refined woman, a lady, and she expects manners and grace from all who are near her. Ichika was the wife of a silk merchant who did very well for himself in the village they lived in. When he died, she discovered he owed money to debtors, and they came and took everything she owned, including the clothes off of her back. She was destitute homeless and in shock. She was pregnant with their 3rd child, and she was forced to move back home with her own parents. Ichika had to rely on the kindness of strangers to get herself and her children all the way to her parent's house, which was over 300 miles away. They had no vehicle, no horses, no carriage, nothing. Despite all of this, she was able to keep calm and carry on, and it took her many months, but she made it there, with her children. She died during childbirth the day after she arrived. Ichika told us that she actually died "in my soul" when they told her that her husband had died suddenly. She says that after that, she was already a ghost, and her only job was to get her kids to her parent's house and birth the new baby. Which she did. She says then her soul finally left her body. She knows she is a yokai. She is destined to exist inside of dolls and mirrors and jewelry for the rest of her afterlife. But she says she will gladly accept that fate because otherwise, she would be destined to roam the forest that she walked through, as the trees there "already claimed my spirit" but she was able to trick those trees and inhabit a vessel. She is amazing, demure, and modest, and to be honest, I love her to death, even though she has scared me a few times - NOT on purpose - but she has manifested looking EXACTLY like the doll vessel she inhabits. And it freaked me out a few times. LOL But I do love her. She does very well with the pendulum and the PSB7, Ouija is OK. This one is special. She is going to need someone who is respectful and who will share tea with her on occasion. She's not for a newbie, she needs someone who is open to communicating with her regularly. She loves anything from Japan, especially antiques. We think she died in 1897. She talks about her brothers "heading to California to find gold". She is impressive.
About the doll: She is an antique stockinette, she comes on a base. She will not come with the screen in the last picture, that is for photographs only.
