Fleeting Moments

Not really much into bride dolls. I just had a thought in my head and these photos were the result. I'm kind of at a stage in my existence where there seems to be a fork on the road wherever I turn and I'm at a standstill, biting my nails and pulling my hair out trying to figure out which road contains the light. It makes you look back and really appreciate those fleeting moments from your past that made you a little bit happier about yourself and perhaps a little bit wiser and stronger too...Ironically, it had nothing to do with weddings at all.  

I was just thinking about how a life event like a wedding is such a turning point for a lot of folks out there, definitely a road taken many times before by some. It takes one word to commit, a few words to vow your love, one priest to approve, one to witness... But it could take the rest of your life, or a good portion of it, to follow through with such a commitment, to build your world from such a decision, to grow personally and still remain mentally, physically and socially intact at the end of it all, just from that one fleeting moment...

...Plus, Poppy Parker makes a cute bride! And Lilith...well, I was intrigued how she might look like with a baby bump.

"Invited by a new age..."

From left to right: Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus

I present to you my favorite pair of soldiers from the Sailor Moon series! They're belated birthday gifts. I can't say enough about how thrilled I am that Groove decided to make Sailor Moon dolls.  Such nostalgia! I just wish that Sailor Uranus' space sword and Sailor Neptune's mirror were included. The actual Sailor Moon doll came with her moon wand so I don't get why the others didn't come with their personal effects. Oh well...I guess that's just another thing I gotta search for online...

So, for those who aren't familiar with these two, they really knew how to kick ass without the whining and the crying. They also have a somewhat controversial relationship. I say somewhat because it was never directly acknowledged in the anime even though there was a lot of insinuations...And we won't talk about the North American dubbing...That was just shameful!...Cousins my foot!

Here's Uranus carrying a small figure of Neptune that I've had for a long time. I was always a bigger fan of the Outer sailor soldiers. I was a kid when Sailor Moon got popular in North America so the most I could afford were trading cards and stickers but I do have a Sailor Uranus plushie that I got from Anime North over a decade ago! See Neptune below.

Happy Monday!

Groovy Galore Poppy Parker

Groovy Galore Poppy Parker
by Integrity Toys
2015 W Club Upgrade Doll

I totally needed to update this blog! I haven't stopped collecting dolls. Life has just been a bit hectic. Here's Groovy Galore Poppy Parker looking groovy no more. She was originally wearing such a psychedelic looking dress that I wasn't too fond it. It seemed like something more suited for a Francie doll. I can appreciate her better out of that dress. I think she makes an awesome Grecian goddess with that pretty face!
