What people in small towns do in the summertime.
Sasha Blaze
That would be "enter things in the county fair," of course. My department's crew of enthusiastic photographers made a combined assault on the photo categories; we didn't win any ribbons (the local camera club has a lock on the awards), but we're certainly proud of ourselves.

I'm deeply amused and gratified that one of my entries was put in the wrong category. I filled out the entry tag correctly--double-checked it and everything--but the person taking the entries didn't read the tag . . . and Tom o' Bedlam here wound up in the "portrait" section.

The judge noticed the wrist joint and put Tom where he belonged, in "manmade objects." (Now, of course, I would love to know what might have happened if the judge hadn't noticed.)

I entered this one in the "botanical" section:

And in the knitting division, where I entered a fashion-doll Fair Isle cardigan and a big fuzzy multicolored throw, I brought home two blue ribbons and the sweepstakes premium for best use of color and design (second time in three years, whee!). I plan to take my $16 winnings and, erm . . . have as much of a celebration as $16 will buy.

*snorfle* Tonner did make them for Tyler, as a convention goodie . . . so there ARE Unoa-sized crutches floating around Out There. Now I'm reflecting on why nobody has made crutches for BJDs, when scars and other kinds of damage are definitely, if not popular, then at least on the radar. Could it be the tech/mecha angle? Artificial eyes, robotic replacement parts, goggles, but not something as clunky and ordinary as crutches?

Though that doesn't explain the vogue for eyepatches, does it? Must think on't some more.

jola was thinking about buying a dolly-sized wheelchair (they do make them, as well as crutches -- I'll dig up a link if you want) because she's buying a doll that's just a torso and a head for some reason . . . she was going to do the medical-fetish-Lolita look with her, I think. ("Just a torso and a head for some reason," not "buying said torso & head for some reason," to be clear -- I'm not sure what happened to the arms and legs, probably went for a project of some kind.)

Congratulations on your blue-ribbon wins, woohoo!!
