Bought a new prop today.
Sasha Blaze
Idea shamelessly stolen from Feral Boy's sculptor, who has some beautiful, beautiful pictures of a Volks F16 in a tall birdcage on his/her website (http://minawa.main.jp). The shops in my small Midwestern town don't have quite such fabulous birdcages to offer, but I was pleased to find one at all.

Walter Pater, from "Conclusion" to The Renaissance (1873):

Experience, already reduced to a swarm of impressions, is ringed round for each one of us by that thick wall of personality through which no real voice has ever pierced its way to us, or from us to that which we can only conjecture to be without. Every one of these impressions is the impression of the individual in his isolation, each mind keeping as a solitary prisoner its own dream of a world.

I've been looking for a nice cage FOREVER. That's pretty cool looking. Congrats on the prop! :)

I was just walking through the teeny mall here after I got my driver's license renewed, and I happened to look through the door of the country-cute interiors store that I never go into, and . . . boom. Thar she blew.

Awesome shots - that cage is GREAT!

I really wanted one more like the website's--taller, lighter brown, cylindrical, not as many horizontal bars to break up the shot. But, hey. This one was here, and reasonably priced, and I'm not going to look a gift birdcage in the mouth. So to speak.

It looks awesome! I wish i had the space for one of these, i would dress one of my girls as a naughty fairy and have her trapped in the cage :)

Sssssssshhhh . . . I have big white wings on the way for Kanbei . . .

Luckily I don't have enough furniture to fill up my living room right now, so as long as I don't care about having people over (or having chairs for them to sit on), I'm okay for cage space.

weee! Cant wait to see! Let the guests sit on the floor, dollies need their room! :)

well, I had been tempted to put my Hound in my dog crate...but you have done a fine job here!

Poor boy, he needs someone to release him.

Oooooo, do that! The pun alone is worth the effort of taking the picture! :-)

I love your avatar picture. Yum.

Nicely done! I've got a ton of Bermann-in-a-cage photos - but they are truly unsettling! One just wants to release him...

Hey, I wanna see the Bermann-in-a-cage photos! Point me to 'em!

Also, I truly have to wonder why I got the traumatized PTSD Yukinojo, and you got the Sexy French Vanilla Sundae Yukinojos. Yukinoji. WhatEVER.


it's a really cool effect, the second pic is great.

Aw, thanks, Paul! I'm waiting to pounce on this idea again, some day when the light is better. In the meantime, Kanbei is just hanging out in the cage, ready to startle any of my friends who drop by without calling first . . .

There IS that . . . however, is it quite fair to torture the air-conditioner service guy and the plumber and the electrician with BJDs? A moral dilemma here. :-)

Pater was on my mind this week, because we were talking about isolation and consciousness in my Dickens class on Tuesday. I like my specialty area a lot.

I think the next one to go in the cage will be Lyon in his onmyoji getup. Talk about implied storylines!

(Deleted comment)
Alas, it's pretty G-rated. :-) This is reasonably close, I think.

Onmyoji are/were the sorcerer-priest-sages of medieval Japan . . . masters of yin & yang, the balance of power in the universe. They wore doofy-looking tall pointy hats, but were otherwise quite dressy (if one believes the movies).

The movies (Onmyoji and Onmyoji II are fun in a junk-food sort of way. Very pretty to look at and a nice way to spend a rainy afternoon, especially if you don't expect too much in the way of logic.

Come to think of it, there's a Feral Boy in Onmyoji II! Hmmmm.

THose came out very cool...poor Kanbei looks so tortured. :(

Leeda volunteers to console him.

He DOES that. Poor lovely tormented warrior-type guy.

And Leeda's consolation would be more than acceptable, LOL. I think part of Kanbei's problem is that the only woman around here is Claudine, who stubbornly insists on staying 14 until hell freezes over. Besides, Claudine has no patience with angst and inner torment; she would tell him to snap out of it and take her to the mall.

Ooooh, I love your new photos, and the cage.^^

I see you have some of JesseC jeans. Have you had any trouble with staining?
I love those jeans, but fear that the dye will stain the doll...plus, I'm too lazy to make some.

I seriously love this doll...^^

Not even a hint of a stain, at least so far--and Kanbei has been wearing these for about a week nonstop. The only jeans I've ever had real staining problems with are from Custom House (poor Claudine . . . and those jeans were even treated with dye remover!). Pen's Cheerydoll jeans sometimes leave a faint blue shadow if I leave them on him for several days, but I've never had any trouble getting it off with water and a paper towel.

Yukinojo is truly, truly wonderful. I feel as if I'm neglecting the others, because Kanbei is so much fun to play with.

Absolutely keep him in the cage, it's too risky to let him roam around. XD He's so gorgeous!! I love the 2nd picture very much.

*snort* Well, he does have a habit of falling over and flinging himself off any perch that I sit him on, so . . . yes. Caged for his own safety, that's it.

(Actually, he looked so sad this morning that I felt guilty and sat him on the couch for the day. I'm such a dork.)
