This post was going to be a series of photos just showing off my nifty new set piece, a Mattel Coca-Cola Soda Fountain, which I acquired this week for below original retail. It's surprisingly huge and true to scale, unlike most playline Barbie stuff, which is undersize. I appreciate its solid, high-quality details, like vinyl cushions on the bar stools and the wooden crate of Coke bottles. I particularly like the tabletop jukebox and the straw dispenser!

I was just going to provide some closeups of the accessories and long shots of the set with dolls showing scale. However, my narrative imagination cannot resist adding plot to photo ops. And so here's a photostory that doesn't really highlight the soda fountain set. Oh well. :p

This month's Figurvore prop challenge was to construct something kitchen-related and to provide photos of dolls using the item.

The only reason that I'm familiar with Submit as a name is that my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother on my dad's side was named Submit. I've always thought that was really cool, so I named one of my dolls Submit. This sometimes leads to confusion when my other dolls are surfing the Web....

I've been saving this prop for about six months to use in just such a photostory.

In case you don't know, that's Epona on the left and Peekaboo on the right.

Along with Theophany [and a bag of underwear] came Peekaboo, a custom dolly from Andrea. I believe she's a Mattel Lea head on a Volks something-or-other Liv body with enlarged breasts, added horns and tail. Don't forget the red skin! I like how she looks inquisitive and mischievous at the same time. She's coming to work with me....
