Instant Pics

Perfectly Purple Poppy Parker

For anyone interested, you can now follow me on Instagram. The link is on the side panel. I misplaced my good camera charger so I've been using my crappy phone camera when the doll snap craving hits.

Dia de Muertos with Little Nunu

Little Nunu at Evergreen Brick Works Toronto

It has been a while since Little Nunu had shared her travels. Yesterday, she's had enough with being carried around and not having her photo taken. I finally obliged during an afternoon trip to Brick Works with a friend to check out the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.

It turns out that Little Nunu doesn't scare easily. She loves the colorful Dia de Muertos decorations just as much as I do! We even got to watch a Mexican live band! 

And what's a celebration without chocolate?

Happy Halloween everyone!

Princess Ai

Princess Ai
Evening Princess
by TokyoPop

Got this doll at Silver Snail Comic book shop on a whim over a decade ago. I have a collection of anime figures and I wanted a doll that had an anime face. I didn't know Princess Ai or cared for her manga. I just liked her look. Unfortunately, even though I have my anime figures on display, this particular doll never joined them. She never joined my other fashion dolls either. She basically sat in her box for many years.

...Something made me dig her up today. I even googled her and discovered some interesting details about her. Apparently, she was created from the collaboration of Courtney Love, Ai Yazawa and Misaho Kujiradou. Courtney Love, I'm familiar with. I don't know Misaho Kujiradou but I do know Ai Yazawa. Ai Yazawa's Nana anime/manga is one of my favorites. If you like to watch anime or read manga, Nana is a must see/read. Forget about reading my useless ramblings. Go search Nana now! Go!

Back to the doll...

As you can probably tell from the photo, the plastic used on her head and body is starting to majorly change colors. I don't quite remember her head being super pink, or her body being super yellow. 

Her outfit is not of the greatest quality either and she has a pair of black cloth shoes that have already dyed her toes black. I do find it interesting that the back of her dress has a red criss-cross detailing that you would never know about unless you free her from her box prison.

She's an, overall, cute doll. I wish she was of better quality. I wonder if I can re-body that pretty head...
