This gives me feelings one probably shouldn’t have about books.
That is a daily job hazard in Special Collections.
Also, congratulations and well done on the MLIS! :)
This is Blaze, my customized Spectra Vondergeist!
Her hair has been rerooted with hair from RetrodollsEurope.com (colours “Jonquil”, “Gelignite”, “Kwik Silva”) and hair from Taj Mahal store (colour “Cream”).
The crown she’s wearing is made out of aluminium plate, which I have designed and sawed by hand.
Dress is also handmade by me and her shoes comes from Dollicious Customs on Etsy. The shoes were glittering when I got them, but I have added coats glitter nailpolish, the same I used on the crown, on them for extra sparkle.
