1 Month Later

I have some how managed to keep content flowing for a whole month on my blog! Honestly, I surprised myself, projects like this are usually dead by the second post or two. I’m definitely struggling a bit to keep new content flowing especially when I’m torn between the doll hobby and gaming, and not having…

Soft, Scented, Squishy!

As if collecting overpriced dolls wasn’t enough, I’ve also found myself getting into overpriced adorably painted memory foam toys. It all started with YouTube, actually. An odd place to discover a collecting based hobby, but there’s actually a massive community of “squishy youtubers.” From what I can tell, the whole fad came along-side the slime…

The Great Doll Display Adventure!

As with any collector, storing my collections can be an obstacle to tackle, as well a wonderful adventure in home furnishing. Unfortunately, myself pinching pennies elsewhere to afford my hobbies, this means my displays are a place I see as a place to pinch pennies as well, so the wonderful world of home furnishing is…

Meeting Denise’s Dolls ~ An Official US Seller of Azone and PetWORKs

It’s not every day you find out that there is a massive doll convention happening just down the road from your apartment, but that is exactly what happened this Monday! I had Pre-Ordered Denise’s Doll’s Limited Azone girl, through her facebook, Japan Doll Connection, and she had asked if I was going to pick her…

“That’s Creepy” – When Does it go Too Far?

We’ve all dealt with this. Taking our dolls into public places, or even within our own homes and being subject to the never ending commentary of “That’s Creepy.” We’ve all joked about it, taking our dolls places and creeping people out, sitting them waving at passerby’s at public doll meets or outings, and the like…

My Ivory Tower

Working on the 28th floor definitely has its perks. Even on cloudy or rainy days, it’s a beautiful site to watch the city below me.  It’s not “bright lights” or anything particularly extraordinary, but it’s peaceful to watch from the quiet corner of my office. Good Morning and Happy Monday, everyone 🙂

Me Vs. Monitor

Since starting this project, I quickly realized that my monitor colors were royally screwed. I’d completely ruined any sort of real color hopes in favor of Tera looking pretty, and I’d gotten so used to it, I almost didn’t even notice when I first started editing photos.  It wasn’t till I started looking at my…

Why Detroit?

Obviously the Detroit in Detroit Doll is because I live here, and it helps that it’s catchy, but I definitely did give it a lot of thought before settling on it. I realized I do really love living and working in Detroit and have always loved taking photographs while I’m down town. I also saw…

A Look Back

For the past few years I’ve mostly abandoned dolls and photography in favor of gaming, and just surviving life in general. After picking up my camera again, I’ve found I know nothing anymore and am almost back to where I began with knowing my camera and the basics of photography.  It’s slowly coming back to…
