Aschenputtel et Miette

Aschenputtel et Miette
I made this dress (the blue chiffon) a couple summers ago and never photographed it. it is my own pattern, and I’m particularly fond of the back.
Aschenputtel et Miette
La Petite Miette sports vintage Madame Alexander scavanged from a garage sale. And has the weathered, attic stains and dust to prove it. Miette thinks it adds authenticity to her impish aristo on the down-and-outs character. Right.

First time in nearly two years I’ve managed to schedule myself for a Volks USA shopping event! But I made it, 10:59:47 fingers poised at the ready for Dolpa 21 Regular Items sale! It is like getting concert tickets, oy! Too stressful.
You can go see what is left over now.

Japanorama and Jonathan Ross love

Mr. Kallisti and I had already developed an affection for Jonathan Ross after watching his highly affectionate series from the 80’s on cult film The Incredibly Strange Film Show that included in depths on John Waters and Russ Meyer among others.
Recently we ran across his Japanorama series. News to us, don’t know how familiar non-brits are with this series, we’ve been spellbound all week with his presentation and enthusiasm for the subject, including eighteen episodes spanning three seasons over six years. Beneath his dapper English exterior, and charming lisp, he is a self proclained Otaku, and his enthusiasm for all things Japanese, especially robots, is contagious.
“JAPANOWAMA! LOOK! I’m widing an electwic panda!!!”

Licca Licca

I’ve downsized the collecting by downsizing the object of affection:
Super Dollfie = 72cm
Licca = 22cm
YEAH! With a mini pricetag (comparatively) to boot.

I’ve been obsessed with Kimono/Traditional wearing Licca & Jenny lately. We’re still in the “steady she goes” spending mode… so it is mostly mooning at limited editions on the internet.
Like these gals from Licca Castle:

Profile: Miss Aphra, is a bit of a wild mare with a penchant for literature and a passion for the theater. She spent some time on the continent spying for her Majestie’s government, gaining little by it, but picked up a smattering of French and other continental skills besides. At the end of her continental stay, about nine months, a baby girl, christened Miette, was left in the care of a convent, a typical L’Ecole des filles, to be brought up by the abbess herself as a foundling. Aphra came to us exhausted but with spirit intact and vowed to send for the little girl as soon as she was able.

Wig: W-101-613 One-Curl Bob Ivory

Location: Consumptive Ward

Profile: Lysander Menace, Lord Foppington is a bit on the delicate side with a weakness for Laudanum infused with crushed, dried beetles. He can frequently be seen hacking attractively into a monogramed hanky of delicate lawn while reading the latest bit of gothic trash from the lending library.

Hermione & Lysander, orphaned twins born within five minutes of eachother, at one time stood to inherit grotesque amounts of money until it was revealed that Old Unkie Roderick had frittered away the family fortune on exotic cheeses and fur coats (he was a bit of a swissophile). Upon their birth, their mother, Lady Foppington, lingered briefly with glistening brow and promptly perished. Young Master inherited the title upon the death of his Father, the Old Lord Foppington, who died of ennui and whiskey. Still, until Young Master and Miss Menace reach maturity at twenty-one, they are in the foster care of Blastmilk Home for Wayward Girls (and one boy).

Profile: The Hon. Hermione Menace is a sullen, independent girl. She’d just as soon paint her toenails green and walk barefoot down Main Street as pen outlines for faux term papers on the phantasmagoric and carnivalesque in eighteenth century literature. She doesn’t say much, but when she does, O! The stories she tells! None of them are true, of course. They are wild, hair raising tales of daring-do and blood curdling adventures of young abused heroines with crazed eyes and torn gowns of the palest lawn. But every so often, in the midst of telling her tale, she gets a glisteny wide-eyed look, and you wonder what could take her thoughts so far away. I asked her once and she answered simply, “Cookies.”

About: Hermione was ordered at the Los Angeles Sumika on opening day, November 21st 2006, and her headplate reads is #5! While Hermione is not a Sasha clone, or a Sasha stand-in, she believes Sasha could certainly be tolerated, as a distant cousin, or bastard half-sister, but she doesn’t want anyone to be so gravely mistaken as to assume that she is in any way second choice to a Sasha.
