The Modsdoll Interview with Yian

Interviewing someone who speaks little of your language is a challenge, and yet, speaking with Yian Lee of The Modsdoll, I felt my mind fill with images, inspirations and sounds that fill her day-to-day world in South Korea.

One, two or all can be present in the same person, but in and of themselves, they are generally exclusive in terms of definition. You’d be surprised how many people out … Read More Trans-Action

Breaking News – GlamourOz Dolls Confirmed to Production

I have had a truly fucked fall. And as is true of most Tommydoll posts, this will include a fair amount of Tommy Drama…so deal with it… Not since my being laid off from Tonner in 2010 have I felt so disparaged by the doll world.

What Makes a Doll Haute…Really.

That’s right, Puddings…we’re back… Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – that much we know to be true. You might see something that appeals to your tastes, and yet – it can easily repulse another. People brave enough to stand by their artistic convictions have a damn strong point-of-view, and loads of self-confidence. Those that bully others into feeling something isn’t ‘good … Read More What Makes a Doll Haute…Really.
