Lakeside, a young woman arranges her dolls.

Then photographs them.

Presumably, a design project. The light by Lake Mendota was excellent for photography. These photos of mine were done with my iPhone.

I recall seeing a lot of the photos with those large eyed dols on Flickr. I never really got hte point though.

My daughter has a couple of ball-joint dolls (she doesn't care for the "big headed" ones) that she bought from Korea or someplace or other. Well, actually, she's got *heads*... and one body.

These things are not at all cheap and are not toys. She's got the vampire version of this doll http://www.migidoll.com/bbs/data/gallery/H2.jpg but she's done the "face-up" herself. She does *fabulous* face-ups.

Do they like coming to the lakeside?

Stanley Cavell on Dolls search for doll, read pages 401-403.

We photograph our Uglydoll, although usually only when we're traveling. I always knew we looked weird doing it, but eek. It's worse than I thought.

I'm serious... they had a doll meeting picnic at the park and everyone brought their dolls and set them out on blankets and took pictures and oooo and aahhh and ate their potato salad, and then we went over to this lady's house because she offered to let my daughter borrow a body so she could get a picture or two of her "head" with a body attached.

If this woman is "young," then I'm at least "youngish," which is almost as good as getting carded. Thanks.

Ahh, companionship with no I-Pod to keep her from her Dolly World. Different strokes for different folks.

Wow Wisconsin Voodoo dolls are really ugly.

They're http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blythe_(doll) dolls. Very popular on crafting forums. I don't get it either.

A friend of my sister's once borrowed my brother's GI Joe Dolls to make a stop-motion animated short for a film class.

Sadly I never saw it.

Clearly, there's one standard of picnic bench for members of the Obama administration, and another standard for everyone else.

The trend continues.
