Even Super Quicker

I'm still on my little dolly sabbatical! I've been working very hard in 1:1 scale (aka real world) and had a sick doggie(that was fun...). Anyway, I thought I'd put some pics up of my little mini-me, I took these awhile back. You may have wondered who the little guys are on my masthead, and even if you haven't wondered, I'm telling you anywayz : ) The little guy is Tao-tao, and the the gal is Tanpopo. These two started life as Jun-Planning Ai dolls. Here's a link to their page on the company website. These dolls have the oddest expressions, like a baby with an old soul. I gave Tanpopo to TheRealDollNerd for Christmas 2007, and he gave me one for my birthday, a few days later.

I'm a winter holiday baby... if you ever have a baby during this time, don't tell them the Christmas party is for them and that the fireworks at the New Year are part of their birthday celebration. Do however, buy them special birthday wrapping paper, buy actual birthday gifts (not a Christmas/Birthday gift, I've done the math, it's never the same as two gifts), and celebrate their birthday as it's own special thing... Geez, I need to go talk to someone about this.... I've digressed.

Anyway, little Tao-tao is my lil' avatar. He's not in 1:6 scale, or any scale I can readily discern. He gets to have all the non 1:6 scale miniatures that come my way. Great fun! One day I'll have a little house for him that's full of funny little things that are just a touch out of scale... but let me run through my 1:6 obession first... enjoy!

* Finally, tonight, BBC America will start broadcasting Torchwood series 3! So, I threw a few Doctor Who/Torchwood references in for good measure....
...and here's a link to a crappy little movie I made called "Dalek in the Tardis." What great fun I have.

Thanks for the background on Tao-tao and Tanpopo. Yes, I was curious about them. They're soo cute. Those oversized sunglasses look cool. They are fitting avatars for supercooldollhouse. Yay, supercooldollhouseteam!
