I feel like really extravagant and beautiful customizations and custom face-ups are a big part of the bjd community/”culture”. I don’t really want to do that with my dolls. I don’t want to send them to anyone else to do it and I don’t want to do it myself because it seems stressful and I’d be worried about messing up- and generally I just don’t have a lot of interest in doing it. So I feel sort of left out and unoriginal and it makes me kind of sad. (Not saying anything bad about anyone who does those things- I really admire pretty much every other doll owner I’ve come across).

Hey, if that’s how you love your dolls, that’s how you love them. There is zero shame in that, and as long as you are having fun and enjoying your dolls your way, go for it!
IKE HAS CLOTHING!!!!
I’ll be taking pictures as soon as the clothes arrive and Ike is fully restrung! This was the last big step into getting him all ready for proper photos and display and I finally found the perfect outfit for him! It will go great with his grey skin, hair and bright blue eyes. I am debating darkening the teal face-up, but I think I’ll let the face-up rest for now and wait until the clothing actually gets here. XD
Also, thanks for letting me know that Hujoos fit into Blythe/Pullip sized clothing. I was sweating over finding him stuff, being unable to sew my own clothing, and this outfit will be perfect.
vassalady asked: bondage?
I do not like being completely restrained (arms or legs free, can do legs OR arms) but harnesses, blindfolds and suspension are all things I love.
vassalady asked: temperature play?
(I prefer cool/warm to cold/hot, and cold to hot, but yes generally)
Dear community of friends, family, and supporters.
We are three queer fatties of color and this will be our first time attending the Allied Media Conference. We really need your support getting there!
The Allied Media Conference is in Detroit, Michigan June 19th-22nd. Our workshop was accepted and we are excited to present as part of theAbundant Bodies track! We have not been in any way able to afford this conference in the past and it’s prevented us from even applying but this year we took a leap of faith and submitted a workshop proposal. Now that we have been accepted we want to make sure this dream opportunity becomes a reality.
The cost for the three of us to attend is pretty immense, especially considering our limited and different economic resources. We anticipated being able to cover a portion of the cost but we will need your help to get all three of us there. We hope that our vibrant community of fatties, QTPOC, friends and family will help us make this trip possible.
We need help covering the following costs:
Plane tickets $1800 (flights from Portland to Detroit are ~650 and flights from Salt Lake City are ~$550)
Housing $500 (we found an airbnb across the street from the university that would allow us to room together and cook meals to save money)
Registration $150 (we were awarded an additional $150 from AMC to use towards registration but we would like to contribute more to the conference beyond that amount)
Trip Total 2550 + ~150 for indiegogo fees
Grand total 2700
Anything we raise here above and beyond this amount will go towards food and supplies for our workshop and our rewards offered here.
If you can’t donate (and we totally understand that many folks won’t be able to), we hope that you will still support us by spreading the word or consider donating items/skills that we can add to our rewards offered.
We do this work to leave evidence of ourselves, those of us who are simultaneously unseen and hypervisible in our queer, fat, brown bodies. Please help us in doing this work!
Cory, Jess, and Esther

i’m all for polyamory and poly relationships but the concept of having a mistress or someone on “the side” is entirely rooted in heteronormative patriarchy favouring straight white men and demonizing both women so fuck that shit and fuck that option
if you think that labels don’t matter and nobody should use them, then you’ve probably never experienced the huge, indescribable relief of “oh my god there’s a word for how I feel” and “I’m not the only one”
