WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 311 Here's The Countess from American Horror Story: Hotel. Or as she's know in other realms; Lady Ga Ga.
Ga Ga was pretty good in the role. The next American Horror Story is returning in September, and yes, Jessica Lange is back!
Got an e-mail this morning letting me know how to get notices when comments happen. So Google is watching us, good thing I'm not paranoid! I followed the link and should be seeing comments again. Thanks for stopping by.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 310 Having one of those weeks? So is this doll.
Found this searching the web images and there was no info on who's photo it is. If it's yours, let me know.
Still not getting notices when a comment happens. I don't know what's up with that. Thank you for the support over the past few years, it means a lot to me.

WEIRD DOLLWEDNESDAY, PART 306 When I go thrifting, I always look for interesting dolls. Haven't found any in a while. Last week I had a couple of days off and checked out a store I haven't been to for a long time. Found 3 dolls! Here's the first one:
The label says: Made in Ecuador. Guess somebody when there on vacation.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 303
Can you stand more Game of Thrones? Of course, you can.
A big fan favorite was Oberyn Martell, AKA The Red Viper, and Daddy of The Sand Snakes. He was holding a major grudge against the Mountain for killing his sister. Do to a round about story line, he became the champion for Tyrion. I know, if you don't know the books/TV show, you have no idea what I'm talking about.
Oberyn fights with a (poisoned) spear and lightweight amour. The Mountain fought wearing heavy amour and a big assed sword. To bad, Oberyn got all extra and didn't just finish him off. The Mountain ended up killing Oberyn in the grossest death in the series: popped his head like a melon.
Watch your back!

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

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.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 294
The other afternoon, I was in the scene shop talking to the tech director. I looked over her shoulder and saw something I hadn't seen in years, and was surprised it was still hanging around.
I made this nun puppet in 1994!!!!!!!!!!!!! She was in a musical about nuns called Nunsence. I used an oven mitt for the base and a pair of torn tights. She's a tad dusty, but not too bad for a 24 years old prop.

MY SCHOOL'S COOLER THAN YOUR SCHOOL
This weekend was the 9th Annual Emerging Artists Showcase where our Theatre and Dance Seniors get to strut their stuff. This Spring we will graduate 14 students in Musical Theatre, Performance, Dance and Theatre Tech. The Musical Theatre, Performance and Dance Seniors sang, danced to original choreography and performed scenes and monologues. The tech students had displays of their work. Here's the breakdown: 29 students were involved, 21 dancers, 2 choreographers, 2 performance and 3 musical theater, 2 tech. 15 African-Americans, 2 Hispanic surnames, 1 scholarships from Columbia, 1 exchange student from South Korea, 1 student from France and 1 immigrant from Taiwan. We may be located way, way down South, be we're diverse as all get out.
Oh, and to up our cooler than you count, we had a special visitor last month.
Yeah, that's Misty Copeland, Prima Ballerina at American Ballet Theatre sitting on our stage giving an interview. Inspiring all the young dancers who came to the talk to not give up their dreams.
