Disclaimer: There is Doll Nudity ahead. I've seen enough videos and web pages to now know that people put a disclaimer for this fact. I have NO idea what sort of angry mail they get when they don't. I hope it's just because naked dolls exude a eldritch sadness and not for doll sexuality. I … Continue reading My First Blythe: Part 1
I'm now 43. I started using dial-up modems to access local chat lines when I was 14/15. So the raw amount of STUFF, good and bad, that accessing the world from your computer is not new...those early days in fact made me love using e-mail early and often to maintain and grow connections to people … Continue reading Ariel from the Box.
A friend checked in on how I was doing yesterday. I haven't knit for at least eight years. In fact I'd cleaned out my knitting yarn stash a few years back (keeping all my needles and supplies, just letting go of the odd yarn) in a Kon-Mari spree. My stash was a reasonable size because … Continue reading Like Grandma
I'm a belly dancer. I teach and perform and study belly dance. I also make belly dance costumes. There was no doubt that I'd combine dolls with dance. As soon as I saw a used Pullip Nah-atto doll I had to have it. But let's be honest, Nahh-ato is all Orientalist tropes. Genie lamp, harem … Continue reading Dressing to Dance.
I am nursing a flare-up in tendonitis in one of my ankles so I'll be at home for a few days during the national holidays icing and resting and probably catching up. I could explain why it's been a while but it's not interesting: work and life. I'm waiting for some eye chips to arrive. … Continue reading All those outfits
From March 16th to march 27th I was in my hometown of Madison...so it was time to buy a few things not readily available in Japan: Hair texturizer product for my limp hair, cheap bras in my size, NYX make-up (But they are coming back to Japan SOOOOOON), Urban Decay make-up, fun clothing from Zip-Dang … Continue reading Stocking bodies!
It's come to my attention that when I post updates of what I'm working on, dollwise, it can be a little hard to follow if I show multiple dolls. Fair. I mean the "Groove" dolls (The company that now makes Pullips/Dals/Ect) are rather inter-changable once you remove their wigs and clothes and are sanding their … Continue reading Reggie.
I haven't posted a bit because I've been on a restorative vacation to my hometown in America (Madison, WI). Now I'm back in Japan, my first morning back in my apartment, waiting for my luggage to be delivered. Nothing was lost but it's never fun to lug a giant suitcase on the trains. That's why … Continue reading Back in action. No Bobbin!
Early in 2017 I used this blog to keep screenshots of how Alexandre Chebeir (who I sometimes called Chbeir because he went as both online) harassed women. You can check the Chebeir tag. There is new news on him. It's further proof that people who habitually harass women online shouldn't be treated like social goofs … Continue reading Alexandre Chebeir News
Brain: You leave for America on the 16th and you only have one full day off between then and now. However will you do all the things you need to do? Also Brain: Why don't you redecorate your toilet room? So I did. Wednesday is usually a day off for me but today I substitute … Continue reading I am Alice.
