Someone on DoA asked me: Does the (original) Ausley body have any side-to-side movement in the torso? I know she can lean forward pretty well, but I have never seen anyone demonstrate any leaning left or right with this torso.
Also: can she put her knees close-ish to her chest?
As the Byrds sand, Turn, Turn, Turn…
She can pull her leg up this high and keep in the ball joint. The knee can go back a little further….
Her knees can go further but the ball leaves the socket. It looks fine when she has clothes on.
She can hunker forward if you really wanted to have her knees to her chest, but again, it depend on what you expect from that ball in the socket there.
So I’ve been detailing the build of my dolly crypt on my tumblr blog I store my girls in boxes and it’s getting closer to finished. I’d been making coffins but those are space hogs and hard to store. I do have dolls living in coffins but if a coffin is like a house then the crypt was like a condo. I had to make some tough choices about who gets to live there and especially, who gets to live on the top floor. The first cut was that I decided that Alex wasn’t going to move in. I prefer her in my room with me and her crew of murderous Minifees will eventually live on the bookshelf in my room. Also Alex and her crew don’t live in the same time period that all my other dolls live in. So they have a separate story.
There are other two other Minifees who eventually will be coming home from their trip to enlightenment and customization and there will be two more after that. So Alex’s droogies will be together in my room since they live in modern times. Unlike the rest of my dolls that live in the castle of Gilles Des Rais in medieval France. The crypt itself was expansion because all the coffins were full. So the first three rows were taken by Belladonna (Notdoll Belladonna), Helene (Peaks Woods Rosemii) and Claudine (Peaks Woods Kisha). Here’s a little internal peek inside:
For the foot fetishist. And here’s the plates I made from recent photo sessions cutting out little Polaroids. I need to find three more of those plates…..
Alex: So how does this thing work?
Alex: Suddenly I see why you call that tumblr blog “I store my girls in boxes“!
Alex: You’re a kinky man Dollhausen! I like it!
Alex: Umm….hey DH! Do you hear me? Are you gonna let me out? Hmm….it’s kinda sexy being locked away like this……
My enlarger, easel, processor and a recent print…..
My new gals arrived and here’s a little behind the scenes vignette from a photo-shoot I was doing with all my PW gals. Sure the photographs are all swirly and glamorous (see Sander Doll ) but back stage is a little more relaxed:
Gavrila: Yet another test shot?
Me: Just two minutes for a Polaroid to test exposure….
Gavrila: So basically you’re chimping?
Me: No, well, it’s proofing…It’s…well, shut up and sit still.
Claudine: While we’re waiting would be be a dear and rub my feet? All that standing was making me tired….
Me: Sure thing Claudine!
Gavrila: That wasn’t so bad. Is one of these coffins mine? What happened to that crate with my Romanian soil?
Me: Annalisa, that’s great! What no smile?
Annalisa: Dicis mihi etiam hac vice et viscera cernit! (You say that one more time and I’ll feast on your entrails!)
Me: Ummm, no idea what you’re saying but I’ll assume we’re going for moody here….
Cassandra: Since you spend a lot of time around Gilles, what’s he really like? Is he as evil as they say?
Annalisa: Aut malum non sit conceptus tuos Egidii aut mihi. (Your concept of evil has no meaning to either Gilles or myself).
Cassandra: Apologies, it slipped my mind that you speak no English. I’ll take your answer to mean, “yes”.
Claudine: God, it was only a foot rub!
Gavrila: Hey, Dollhausen, keep your hands to yourself. This is a photo-shoot remember? Not a porno movie!
Me: But she….but I didn’t…..
Claudine: Why do you have to be so jealous!? I hate it when you’re like this…..
Well, perhaps relaxed isn’t the right word…..but, you get the picture….
Here’s the map of how love hurts. Alex took her sweet time making Varla hers:
23 cigarette burns
two knife cuts (one near her breast and one in her side)
one brand of a scarlet A on her right breast
one permanent black eye
rope burns on her hands and wrists from spending too many days tied up
are all the physical proof. Varla had two tattoos:
one snake wrapped around her right arm
one skull on her left bicep
The Knights Templar tattooed the same red cross on Varla’s chest that is on Alex’s.
The bullet wound Varla doesn’t talk about it but it was there previously. Somebody shot her in the leg to take her down.
During her fight with Billy Wayne she received a cut from a broken beer bottle down her forehead, across her eye and onto her cheek. Alex stitched it up later. Like Alex Varla wears black mascara and she favors maroon lipstick. It had been Billy Wayne’s favorite and now it was Alex’s.
Got my harness today from SyntheticEphemera and Alex has been looking forward to this (well okay, me too). It’s an early Valentine’s Day present. It’s cool though fussy to get on. I could have used an Ikea diagram. Hmmmm…..I like that idea….Ikea new’s BDSM dungeon annex….anyway. Here she is.
God I love Alex so much…..
I had to watch Shoah, The Sorrow and the Pity and Night and Fog for my film class this week (The 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day) so I signed up for SundanceNow Doc Club and Alex and I sat together and spent the night watching movies.
