I currently have four dolls on the marketplace: Lola Paprika, Dorothy, Noodge and Sarah. I'm not in dire need of funds, but I would like them to sell off expeditiously so that I have have the money to pay for a) the rest of estate planning fees, b) the FLE car's well-car checkup and then c) JARETH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As an invdividual whose hair regularly flirts with non-existence [i.e., I buzz my hair with a #1 blade down to 3.175 mm every month], I appreciate baldness.

I especially like women with no hair on their heads or else only a few millimeters. Hair provides protection and conformity to societal expectations, especially for women, whose hair is seen as their "crowning glory" [adapted from 1 Cor 11:14-15]. A purposeful lack thereof on women, therefore, indicates a certain boldness in flouting cultural expectations. At the same time, since it lays bare one's facial features and the shape of one's head -- containing lumps, dips, curves, moles and scars that are secret for most people -- baldness also denotes in my mind an appealing frankness and vulnerability, a willingness to confront the world plainly, with unadorned honesty. I find women's intentional baldness a strong aesthetic statement, perhaps even a philosophical one.

My attraction to bare-headed women appears in my doll population. The aesthetic appeal remains the same, while the philosophical underpinnings are more along the line of being lazy and cheap and not wanting to spring for an expensive, high-maintenance wig. :p

vermont chick and I met in the Koolvord Room of Brownell Library, Essex Junction, yesterday. She brought her new Iplehouse Barahan, and I brought Sardonix [Cerebrus Project Juri '06 on modded Shinydoll Thaasa body] and Noodge [Fairyland RealPuki Soso]. I took 200 pictures [primarily because my hands were shaking], mostly of her Barahan, since he is so handsome, with his serene smirk. Below, pictures of Barahan, Sardonix and Noodge. Read more... )

I met vermont chick, Lorraine, at Tiny Thai in Essex Center to talk dolls and show ours off. The first Vermont meetup that I organized was a success. We enjoyed lunch and then took pictures of our dolls in a nearby gazebo and on a butterfly-shaped bench.

SIGH. They're never satisfied!

Sarah: "Well, it's not too fun playing dolls any more when Elizabeth hasn't brought all her Rement foods to the new apartment. There's nothing to play WITH!"Read more... )

Now that my BJDs all have their own BJDs, they can play dolls together. Given the differences in personalities, this can lead to conflict.Read more... )

Araminthe arrived today! She's the first representative of B&G Doll [Boy &Girl Doll] that I've encountered, and I really like her. She has smooth even resin without mold lines, well-hidden double joints and perfect stringing. She stands and holds a multitude of poses right out of the box. I'm not going to even have to wire her arms!

Araminthe's headsculpt, the snarling Burrysa head, came with the bloody faceup, not the non-bloody one, so I guess she's a messy eater. Her default smoldering red eyes go well with the red and black tones used in her faceup, and the drips of blood outside her lips seem more stylized than realistic. As for Araminthe's head itself, it's very small compared to other 60cm heads, with fine, pointy features and harsh, flat planes. I think her expression is hilarious.Read more... )

I got Araminthe a frilly and obnoxiously colored dress set, Watermelon Idol, from Tenshi on DoA. Isn't it fabulous? Also please note that Noodge apparently likes Araminthe's shoes too.Read more... )

What kind of story do you think she is telling Noodge and Precious Little and the Rement bear?Read more... )

My toys' toys have toys. Sardonix shows off Noodge, who shows off her teddy bear from a Rement set that I bought today at doll club. Read more... )

Got some [unfortunately plain-flavored :( ] Turkish delight today. Noodge had fun playing around the box. RealPukis are perfect for peeking out from behind things.Read more... )

My Fairyland RealPuki Soso arrived in the mail today, sadly, after doll club, so I couldn't show her off this month. I will next month, however. I took a few photos of her in front of her box and with the violent pink yarn that has stymied me in my knitting progress.Read more... )

Noodge is getting a T-shirt and a pair of leggings made by Spampy's Stuff. Each piece of material that makes up each item of clothing will have a different pattern on it, so that the whole effect looks like a purposely clashing patchwork...with a skull and crossbones on the chest, of course. Hee hee hee. Noodge, like Sardonix, will definitely be barefoot and quite possible bald as well.

My Fairyland Realpuki is going to be named Noodge, and she's going to be Sardonix' dolly minion [aka scapegoat for Sardonix' mischief]. She was going to be a sweet little fairy doll, but the concept grew a life of its own. Sigh.

I can just see Sardonix now, waving her doll in front of Sarah. "Pay attention to my Noodge!"

"YOU'RE a noodge!"

Ever since I saw a RealPuki Soso at doll club earlier this year, I've really liked RealPukis, my favorite being Soso [shown in the link]. Soso nownow I'm getting my ownown, as a mischievous doll for Sardonix [like she needs more mischief in her life] and someone for Precious Little to play with [like dolls' dolls need playmates]. I should have the unnamed Soso by the new year, since processing takes 8-10 weeks. Booooo hisssss.
