NEW DOLL ! https://missmonster.myshopify.com
This is Isodora the little ghost! She haunts graveyards, hangs out and does ghost stuff. She likes to sleep in the flowers people bring and makes sure the bouquets don’t get stolen or messed with. She’s a little bit bored of haunting and wants to find a living family to stay with. Isadora doesnt eat since she’s a ghost but she loves the smell of oranges and cloves!
This is an original hand made doll. The face, spines and claws are cast urethane with a faux fur body. Soft fleece ghostie legs! Weighted in the butt to sit.Floppy style doll, no armature. Her cast parts GLOW purple in the dark! Put her in direct sunlight/ UV to charge the glow.
Sits at 10” tall.
As with all of my original dolls, this piece will come with a signed and dated etched wooden tag marking it as one of my one of a kind critters.
This is a piece of artwork intended for adult collectors. It can be played with and cuddled a little but please treat it with care to prevent scuffs. Clean any cast parts with a slightly damp cloth, do not use solvents. Fur can be combed and styled if desired.
I do not take on commissioned work.https://missmonster.myshopify.com
This gorgeous little creature lives with me now. <3
"100% wearable, flexible, and comfortable, the Cat Battle Armor is a for-reals armor harness for your kitty. Completely hand-made from durable veg-tan leather, this is no mere costume piece. Your cat will become an unstoppable force for slaughter in this fully articulated suit, shielding him/her from foes while allowing unimpeded movement across the battlefield or living room floor. The imposing torso section features several riveted, articulated plates and a terrifying rack of dorsal spines. Your cat’s hindquarters are sheathed beneath exquisitely arrayed overlapping scales stitched to a soft leather backing, adorned with nickel silver dome rivets. Midnight black scales and plates are finished with a glossy protective coat and seamlessly join together like the petals of a deadly flower. Adjustable at the collar with elastic and two nickel silver buckles, and at the belly with grommeted corset-style lacing for a secure, comfortable fit."
All the cats are better-dressed than me.
Look at this little dapper man
I envy this cat’s wardrobe.

When Mongolian men wrestle in the Naadam games held annually since Genghis Khan founded the nation in 1206, they wear a particular vest with long sleeves but no shoulder covering and a completely open front exposing the whole of the chest,…

I was always particularly fascinated by Turandot, though it has some cringe-worthy elements.

Really, though, how dare they take Queen Elizabeth 1 and turn her into another lovesick woman waiting for her beloved Doctor?
Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because she considered herself married to her country. Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because she had seen what became of her poor half sister Mary who lost the support of the people and almost suffered a rebellion when she married a Spanish royal. Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because she believed that to be a fair and just leader, she could not let her heart rule her head. Queen Elizabeth 1 who did not marry because was abused by a man she was supposed to be able to trust in her early teens. Elizabeth 1 whose mother was brutally slaughtered by her husband and so did not trust in love.
It’s insulting and poor sexist writing to disregard that important choice on her behalf. It’s upsetting, and predictable, and everything I expected from Steven Moffat, who cannot seem to write a significant female character who isn’t in love, obsessed with, or entirely reliant on the Doctor.
I otherwise enjoyed the special, but the portrayal of Elizabeth I was horrible.
That lady is my hero and you are not worthy.
Imagination doesn’t just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving them, or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful. Head teachers would call this escapism, but they would be entirely wrong. I would call fantasy the most serious, and the most useful, branch of writing there is. And this is why I don’t, and never would, write Real Books.
