I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
You absolutely need to look at this entire blog post. It’s both intimidating and inspirational.
Here’s the storify of all her tweets on the topic. I suggest everyone go read it.
Last week we met a young great dane who may grow up to be the World’s Largest Dog. Now we’d like to introduce to you a cat so large that he’s been nicknamed Catasaurus Rex, although people usually just call him Pickles.
Pickles measures over three feet long and weighs 21 lbs. He was found abandoned in a cat carrier on the side of a Massachusetts road and taken in by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. They put him up for adoption on Petfinder, which is where Boston couple Andrew Milicia and Emily Zarvos found and adopted the gargantuan kitty. They were actually selected by the MSPCA from 50 different applicants who all wanted to adopt Pickles.
They say that it was love at first sight and now Pickles spends his days cuddling with his humans and hogging the sofa.
Andrew, a graphic designer, said: ‘When we first saw Pickles he looked like such a beast - but he looked really cool. He’s actually bigger than some dogs. It didn’t take him long to make himself at home and now he takes up most of the couch when he’s laid out.’
Emily said: ‘I struggle to pick him up sometimes cause he weighs so much. He loves hiding in the closet so when we go to work we put a stone statue in front of it to keep him out. But when we come back the statue has been moved and he’s in the closet.’
If these photos aren’t quite enough Catasaurus Rex for you, visit Dailymail.co.uk for a short video.
