WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 301


Look what someone with free time made: Rosemary's Baby action figures!


 

My BFF sent me this photo awhile ago and I just found it hiding on my laptop. I don't where it originally came from.

Ruth Gordon and Mia Farrow standing in front of the Dakota in 1968. Awesome movie. Think I'll go have some chocolate mouse.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 300  


300??????????????

Who knew I was going to be able to keep it up that long, not me. And who knew this existed?

  
 An Edgar Allen Poe bobble head doll. About 10 or so years ago, I designed the costumes for  play called Nevermore. Based on the thought of what happened to Mr. Poe leading up to the day he was found dying in a gutter. He was seen boarding a ship, then disappearing and turning up days later in Baltimore, only to die a couple of days later. It's still a mystery. The playwriter set the play as fantasy ala A Christmas Carole where Poe goes through a guided tour of his stories instead of his life. He interacts with The Telltale Heart, The Gold Bug ect. This is the only photo I have from the show.

Poe and Annabell Lee. What's funny is I was planning on having the bobble head featured today, then I watched a movie called Twixt by Francis Ford Coppala and the lead has dreams where he's lead on an adventure by Edgar Allen Poe.  Hmm...………..

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 298 


Stumbled across a post from a fellow named Matthew Thompson called Journey to the Island of Dolls. Have you heard about this place? It's on an island in the middle of Mexico City. And is covered with dolls.....creepy, weird dolls hanging in the trees and all over the place. I heard about this years ago and always wanted to let the weird dolls hang out in the backyard. I guess it will have to wait. Not a good idea to do when the house is for sale.




from the post

The Power to the People doll?

 WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 296


Looks like it really will be a year before season 8 of Game of Thrones. Here's Dany in her "going to recuse the menfolk while riding a dragon" doll, from season 7.


 She always has some crazy mad braids. And here's a couple of photos of the real life coat.



It's pieced fur, turned inside out. I'm always so impressed with the work that goes into the costumes for this show.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 295


Winter is coming. Well, around here it's more like get ready for summer.

 The Night King turned one of Dany's dragon into an ice dragon. How dare he!


Get back on and fly on out of here!


The couple of days between graduation and the start of PSST is a time I finish projects that are too time consuming during the school year. I've been sorting jewelry and fixing broken pieces. Man, my job is so awful, I get paid to play with jewelry. So far I've fixed about 2 dozen broken earrings and re-strung 4 necklaces. And I've sorted the earrings. Really, people? You don't know the difference between clip-on earrings and pierced? But now all the earrings are in the right boxes. At least I don't have to sort the huge button cabinet.......yet.
