Yes, dolls. This was the May meet-up of the Vermont Doll Lovers and Steampunk was the theme. Attendees were ModernWizard, Lyrajean, Bittersweet Blue, Shannon, Melface, and Vermont Chick (that's me). As usual we were outnumbered by the resins, who got into the spirit of things via props and costumes. Ready, set, go:
Lyrajean was represented by Volks Tony, Volks F26, Volks Date Masamune and Volks Masha (left to right in the first photo) and Volks Dollfie World Cup 01 (in sundress and cat mask in the collage). Her dolls partook of a tea party with overtones of Russian Roulette. Yes, that is a gun in Tony's hand. An innocent prop? Keep reading.
Recently I had to replace my old computer. While I was at it I bought a new edition of Photoshop Elements. In the blink of an eye I went from version 1 to version 14! It may take me a while to get acquainted with (never mind master) all it can do. One thing I've discovered is how to produce quick and painless photo collages. I can't post them larger because they overlap the print in the right hand column. Click on any one to enlarge it. Hope you're as pleased with the results as I am.
