Big Beautiful Deena

SuperCoolDollHouse hosted a charity fair last weekend!  Two new arrivals wanted to make sure they made a good impression so they volunteered their time.  They each bought a space at the park for their charity.  These gals started their journey to SCD as Dena(s) from Big Beautiful Doll.  I think they said that even though they checked the box on the immigration form as Latina, they are actually Filipinas.  They go by their nick names Ding and Ning.  
This is Ning, she has a passion for animal rescue.  She heads SCD ARC, SuperCoolDollHouse's Animal Rescue and Care
This is Ding, she has a passion for .... passion.  

Ning:  Sister?  I don't think that is what SCD had in mind for the Charity Fair.
Ding:  We all serve in our own way sister, besides, all the proceeds will go to a great cause.
Ning: ...
Ding:  Don't be like that, trust me when I say, it's for a good cause.
Nin:  ... (and a side eye)

 The two little cuties are new to SCD too!  They arrived on Christmas :)  They are Lotte and Finn.

Finn:  Adopt!  Don't shop!
Lotte:  Only eat meat that isn't cute!
Finn:  Lotte, you suck.

Ding:  Ning you better keep your animals on your side!
Ning:  You better do the same.

.... and everyone laughed.... (I rarely do dialogue, so..... don't judge to harshly)


... so no sooner had I thought I was done with my 1/6 cycle, I get sucked right back in.  In the last few months I've been seeing the Big Beautiful Doll dolls enjoy a resurgence.  Blame Vanessa and Ms. Leo lol!  I have always admired them, and thought it would be neat to have all three in my collection.  Alas, even  years ago when I  first noticed them they were already off the market, and finding them on the secondary market was tough. 

One day recently, as I was admiring the BBDs on a few blogs, I came across contact information for the creator!  I emailed her straight away hoping to get the girls.  I was delighted when Georgette, one half of the creative team, emailed me herself. (and she's so nice...)  I was hoping to get all three gals, but woe is me, she only had Deenas left... so I bought two.  When they arrived, they were nude, so like many BBD-philes I dug in the deep recesses of my home to unearth some lovely frocks for the gals.  I wanted to make sure my Denas were kitted out in fashionable, youthful and smokin' attire.  I've seen that BBDs out there are made into best friends, mothers and (yikes!) grammas and I wanted to honor the spirit of these dolls, and keep them young and vibrant.  I think I did pretty well.

also... The Real Doll Nerd did me another solid.  Did you notice Ning and Ding's shoes?  Well TRDN squirrel-ed them away many moons ago.  They are dollar store toys that were knock offs of these.  At the dollar store, they were called Fashion Express.
