Made for Each Other

Whew... It's still February so this post is still relevant!  Love is in the air at SuperCoolDollHouse and we enter the SCDH TV stuidos to find a little of it.  What better place to find love?  One kajillion reality shows can't be wrong (yes the can)...  SuperCoolDollHouse however, prefers to go the classy route (is there such?) and bring it old school, a la The Dating Game.  Long before the Bachelor, The Dating Game gave us some innocent and not so innocent entertainment, back when there were .... gasp... three channels... 5 if you're sister was willing to hold the  uhf (vhf? I forget) antenna, and the higher channel (above 13) fine tube knob wasn't broken off.  This post has alot of parenthesis... (sorry).  

Anyway, Susie is trying to find love, probably in all the wrong places.  Seems like everywhere she turns, the male population of SCDH seems meant for someone else.  It's true actually, I buy very few dolls by themselves.  They usually arrive with a friend in tow.  Susie however came via TheRealDollNerd (TRDN).  I traded him a little resin boy for her.  Since she came to me, I've been in search of a mate for her.  Dang you R and D Dolls!  No proper boyfriend for Susie? Well, we'll soon see if a Love Connection was made :) -enjoy!

Susie:  Bachelor number one, what do you love to do?
Ken:  uhhh... Barbie Barbie Barbie
Susie:  What now?
Ken:  Barbie Barbie Baribe
Takeo:  Sorry Susie, sounds like he has a one track mind.
 Susie:  Bachelor number three, do you get stressed out easily?
Takeru:  Well, if I'm handled roughly I can fall to pieces.
Susie:  Oh that's a shame.
Takeru:  It's ok, my girlfriend is the same way.
Susie:  Why are you here if you have a girlfriend?
Takeru:  Beats me, but I heard something about a lack of diversity on the shelf.
Susie:  ooooookay then.

Susie:  Bachelor number two, what kind of stuff are you made of?
Coe:  Well I used to be a GI, but after that ended, I changed my body so it'd be more slim and nicer to look at!
Susie:  Oh my!  
Takeo:  Oh my is right Susie.  It's almost as if he was made for you.  
Thanks TRDN for re-body-ing my clone Joe (Coe) for Susie!  This was another of my Christmas gifts!
Happy February everybody!

The Christmas season is long over, the decorations are put away, mostly (do out door lights count?) and the busy busy weekends have come to a grinding halt.  I love this time of year.  I get to sit back and enjoy the lovely gifts I received!  TheRealDollNerd (TRDN) really hooked me up this year :)  I have to do a little bragging and show off my haul lol.    

Above are my Violet Waters and OOAK Trent Osborn of the Gene Marshall world of dolls.  The little kids are my OOAK Mary and Mowgli from Kisch.  TRND gave these to me for my birthday, my birthday is soon after Christmas.

Around November, for whatever reason I was jonezin (for my international readers jonezin means obsessed to have) for a Gene doll.  Of course my one (ha! one of many) OCD trait that I carry is that my dolls always need to be paired, so I wanted a Trent as well.  Something about seeing matched pairs gladdens my heart.  It confirms my belief that every pot has a lid, every ying has a yang, every Lavern has a Shirley.  TRDN really outdid himself this year.  If you know Trent, you know he always has moulded hair (except for convention workshop dolls).  TRDN  took the time to sand his hair off and flock him!  Okay, I said one OCD trait, here is number two.  All my dolls must have real hair.  Flocking does indeed count.  Mary and Mowgli are also OOAK as their original hair has been removed and replaced.  Aren't they stunning? I"ll post their original pictures here.

These two cuties are Tiny Betsy Mccall, "Once Upon a Time."  TRDN knew if I got a Gene, I'd want to have a Betsy to be her little pal.  TRDN found this set and knew it was the one for me.  I believe these were slated to go with a Gene and Trent pair but as I was found admiring Violet Waters, I got her and the Kischs soon followed!  Don't worry though, they're not orphans... I took care of that with some Christmas money, more on that later though.

My last picture here shows a few gifts.  The rolling rack of dresses was gifted to me because TRDN and I somehow got sucked into watching the Miss Universe Pageant a few months ago.  I may have mentioned to him that I'd do a post with my gals in a pageant.  TRDN scoured ebay for these gowns, five matching sequence covered awesome-ness!  I can't wait until pageant season to do this post.  Wait till you see them on the girls.    I think Perk Colette is considering the gold one pageant director Lucas has chosen for her.  To pull all of this together I added my Fashion Royalty chairs (also a gift from TRDN), a beautiful miniature oriental rug ( a gift from a past year) and some bits and bobs.
