Super Cool Doll House took it easy again, doing a quick set up.  This one was fun to do though.  I finally got to use this piano that, The Real Doll Nerd gave me a while back.  In addition, I found a reason to justify all the extra dolls I just can't give rid of!  Plus after I went to a bunch of discount stores I came home with the Lucy and Ethel Kelly dolls, this post is a sweet way to show them off.  I"m not really into Kelly, but these two are really cute.  Visit my Flickr account for more pictures.  Enjoy!
Isha conducts Kelly and Kelly's duet, I think they're singing something about Paris.

Takeo hammers a tune out on the piano.

Francisco wows the audience with a concerto.

The main attraction Adele, sings the audience into a trance.

The whole cast takes a bow.

In case you were wondering:
Curtain:  metallic knit
Lights:  "Department 56" lights
Piano:  music box, it is labled "Wonderland"  It originally had a magnetic ballerina that danced on the lid.

I Spy with a 1/6 Eye

This past week my partner The Real Doll Nerd presented me with a Jack Bauer of "24" action figure.  We both agreed the action figure itself was okay, but the clothes and accessories were really pretty good.  Sunglasses, brief case, cell phone, guns and shirt were appropriated to my Fashion Royalty Homme wardrobe.  The action figure and accessories inspired this weeks entry.  Enjoy!
Click on the image for a closeup.  Check out Isha on the Screen.

In case you were wondering:

Fireplace: Gloria, not customized.  Interior of fireplace are circuti board coasters I found at Target on sale.
Flat screen TV:  a portable DVD player, the bottom half fits perfectly behind the fire place.  The images shown are pictures of Isha and a soldier doll.  I burned them onto a DVD.

Floor:  Drawer mat from IKEA
Chairs:  vintage Barbie, painted black
Blue prints: fabricated by The Real Doll Nerd, images found online and manipulated to 1/6 scale

My Own Favorites...

Super Cool Doll House thought he'd take it easy this week and post some pictures that never made it to the blog or were hidden in the slide show that lots of visitors skip.  These are actually some of my favorites but because of whatever reason, have not been enjoyed yet.  Enjoy!

Adele and Takeo have a moment in the foyer.  This one didn't make it because I didn't like this rug.

Pierre and Isha have an even bigger moment in the living room.  This pic actually made it in under the "Blog is in the Details."  Most visitors don't take the time to watch the slide show it's in.  If you have time, take a look, it's cute. link

Teeny Tiny, I love setting stuff like this up.  I use tweezers to place everything.  Also in the entry "Blog is in the Details."  link

Adele wonders if spaghetti was the right thing to serve...and so did Super Cool Doll House.  This photo was re shot without the spaghetti.  The photo that made it was also included in "Blog is in the Details."  link  I still like this one though,   I don't think I captured exactly the same thing in the re shot photos.

If you've been reading the blog, you may already understand that I like to look through the window and see.  Stalking my own dolls... what's that about?

Luckily for you, 5 photos per post are the limit.  Otherwise I may have gone all day with pictures that I think are worthy.  Anyway, it was a nice relaxing weekend with no big doll project.  I got to overeat at the Hibachi Grill Supreme Buffet, hang with one of my best friends and take a few naps... and next week?  Many ideas, let's see which idea gets to be.

Mums the Word

Happy Mother's Day to the many counties that honor mothers today and happy any other day to the rest of the world!  In celebration of all our mothers, Super Cool Doll House pays homage to the mother of all fashion dolls, Barbie.  Boy oh boy, pink is not really Super Cool Doll House's bag, and if you listen closely, you may hear me wretch a little.  In any case I hope you enjoy this sweet little room.  Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, who taught me how to craft and get everything done in the nick of time... and Happy Mother's day Barbie.  Who without, none of us doll nerds would have anything to play with.

Just about a month ago I recieved an email from a woman named Joanna.  She said she'd stumbled across my blog (this blog!) while doing a search for LED lights. Turns out Joanna is a writer for Science Channel's blog NERDABOUT New York and wanted to write about me and my blog.  NERDABOUT is a blog about exploring peoples interests... "There is no event too geeky, no hobby too nerdy, to be given its due."  

I didn't know I was going to be so excited about this but I am!  Click the link below to see the first post about my blog, and Joanna says she'll post a second one in about two weeks.  Enjoy!

Feelin' Groovy

Starting out my life in the 70s left a very big impression on me.  Mostly an orange impression.  Oh my... all that orange.  Despite all the design faux pas from that era, not to mention all the faux woods, furs and bricks, some stuff is worth keeping.  Here is my homage to the 70s.  When Pepsi was fine in the toddler's bottle, dads smoked in the car on the way to church, and polyester was a versatile fabric.  Visit my Flickr photostream for more photos.  Enjoy!
