Prince of the Apocalypse, ver. Remix

A fun but not especially looterrific morning was had by Etienne, me, and a non-resin friend at the Topeka doll show. Etienne got enough admiration and cries of Oh, is that one of those--those--what do you call them? From Japan? Shirley, come and look at this doll! to turn his head for good. (Even though we were asked once whether he was Harry Potter, and twice whether he was a girl.) Only one person took down his jeans to see his (rather underwhelming, I admit) equipment, but she had special permission.

The haul: a vintage wine goblet and a pair of tan ribbed socks, Hound size; an Eliza Doolittle hat, Sia size; and an Indian buffet lunch, human size.

When we came home, there was a package waiting in the mailbox:

Awww man~~ I got into lawerence about 3pm, just got home at 7 here in manhattan. I was so sad to have missed the doll show! I missed Roxy LAST weekend too! NARRRRHARHAR. Glad you had a good time tho! :D

If you and Dave are still in Manhattan next May, we HAVE to make plans to meet in Topeka for the show. Even though there wasn't as good a selection of cool props as last year, it was still fun. Susan and Base Hedrick were there (Susan's the one who got to look down Etienne's pants, of course), and the Indian restaurant near the State Capitol building is really pretty good. Not as good as either of the Indian restaurants in Lawrence, but also not as far away.

Glad you're home safe and sound! (Sound? Everything okay healthwise??)

I keep meaning to go to it or the one in KC every year, and every year I'm always gone! ;~; Of COURSE Susan would have to see Etienne's package... I'd like to see someone try and stop her! XD

*snorfle* Aw, she DID ask first. And of all my big guys, Etienne would be the least likely to object, anyway. ^__^

Susan and I agreed that the SD16 package is also underwhelming. And lumpy, heh.

It was a hoot to learn that Susan and Leslie have been enabling people all over Kansas City. Jean Ann Ovel (one of the owners of Still Plays with Dolls in Overland Park) now has a Haute Hound and a Heath--though I gather they're still sitting in their boxes, poor devils.

goodness, I wonder if you ran into my mother. don't know if she went this time, she has in the past. very small woman with long white hair she keeps up in a barette, might have said, my daughter collects those...

I refuse to make the obligatory comment about the smallness of the world, but . . . hah, cliches are cliches for a reason.

As far as I know, I didn't run into anyone matching your mother's description--I talked to one small woman with long white pinned-up hair, but BJDs seemed to be new to her. (She was selling tickets for the helpers' donation drawing.) I would have tried harder, though, if I had known!

don't think that was her, she's not into helping...

and yeah, sometimes it is a small small world...


That is all. *g*

Hey we both went to doll shows in different places. That's cool. Wish there had been more props though.

Do you suppose this is National Doll Show Day and nobody told us?

I was *really* hoping for props, but instead there were four tables devoted to Bleuette, quite a bit of high-end dollhouse-scale stuff, and a ton of vintage Cissys. That was all interesting in its own way--but not quite as useful.

(I think wow, too.)

Bluettes must be really big. there were several tables of them. For some reason they wouldn't sell the outfits separate. Ours had bunches of Barbies and lots of Tonner. At least the Tonner stuff will fit MSD's. No dollhouse stuff - I was actually looking for a tea set.

Oh, *shoot*--I wish I had known that, because the one kind of prop I did see all over the place was The Ubiquitous Tea Set.

One of the odd little shops here in town (porcelain dolls, closeout knitting supplies, and holiday decorations) carries a lot of doll-scale tea sets; is there anything particular you have in mind? I can look, the next time I'm there.

I never, ever EVER would have guessed that wig would look so good on him.

That would be two of us! I was on the phone with tubbysnuggles when I opened the package. Lyon happened to be sitting close by, so I plopped it on his head, and . . . I think I popped one of her eardrums when I shrieked with joy. ;-)

Nice wig, but I really like that chain...but I would be using it to do...er...evil things with it. :)

Not that I am encouraging you to do evil things to your innocent boys or anything like that. ;)

Heh. Oh, he's thinking about evil things . . . lookit the way he has it wound around his hand . . .

I admit that I can't quite figure out what the chain is (officially) supposed to be doing. I hooked it to the belt-loop-thingies on the leather ponytail band, which made as much sense as anything else, but--some experimentation is in order. What a hardship. ;)

I *so* have to combine the silver Leeke glasses I just got with this wig. And the body harness that I just ordered. Yargh. I may have to flock that post, to protect my innocent non-BJD friends who wander by to see what I'm photographing now.

And I thought I wouldn't like the wig...
Guess I've gotta rethink that one. ^0^
Great haul!

Occasionally my impulse buying produces really, really good (if unexpected) results. I don't know what made me want this wig, but . . . I am very glad I got it.
