So there’s been a tiny spurn of hate towards doll collectors with “too many” dolls. We’re either hoarders, greedy, don’t love our dolls that much, blah blah blah.
Have you ever considered that maybe we’re creating minions to do our evil bidding once we become overlords of our newly enslaved world? No one takes dictators with just a few  dolls seriously. But 30+  creepy ass modded dolls staring into your soul? BOOM. Obedience.
Fear your dolly overlord.

I got back from my training weekend and since more than a few people seem interested in garage kits I sorted through the bajillion resin parts— came up with 18 complete Iphigenia kits with parts I consider workable, although they will require a LOT of work, whether it’s cutting or sanding or drilling or additive work with epoxy, as not all the colors even match. (see rather depressing photo.) This is not an easy garage kit, it is definitely not for beginners, and I advise anyone who takes me up on this to please, please, please outfit yourself with a good respirator and ventilation system before tackling this bad boy. The above photo is fairly representative of what you can expect from any one of the kits, except that the parts might match in color more or less.

They will be $50, 1/4 the original price, and this does not include shipping; I hope very much that this is reasonable. I will not ship outside the US, sorry— I lose too much money on fees.

I am making nothing from this, every penny will go towards refunds. Even if you’re not interested I would greatly greatly appreciate a signal boost— I would like nothing more than to refund my customers as quickly as humanly possible, and between this and my actual real life job, this is all I can do.

I’ll contact those of you who have specifically expressed an interest soon (or you can PM me again), otherwise thank you so much for taking a gander. I’m also trying to figure out how to make some of the decent heads into pendants (please let me know if you would be interested in those instead!) there were a surprising number of ok-looking extra heads after I put the kits together. No right knees though, and a surprising lack of right shins…

signal boost for a way to get an amazing art doll/project doll on the cheap!

Staples Wants to Bring 3D Printing to the Masses
Staples has been selling 3D printers for about a year. Now it wants to begin selling access to them.
The office supply retailer began offering 3D printing services in two stores on Thursday, one in New York and another in Los Angeles. Anyone can walk in and have Staples crank out a tchotchke—or 1,000 of them—while reveling in the glory of the 3D printing revolution without spending thousands on an actual printer. If the pilot takes off, Staples (SPLS) says it will expand 3D printing services to more stores.
Full Story: Business Week


This is exactly what I need. I’ve been curious about dabbling in 3D printing, particularly to make doll furniture and doll body parts. Getting to print something at a Staples store would help be evaluate whether or not to get a printer for home… or just keep coming to the store if I only want to print a few things here and there.
