So. If I have a doll who is white, and I want to put her hair up in a ton of tiny braids, would anybody consider that cultural appropriation? Because I really didn't want to do anything like putting Kaya's clothes on white dolls or anything, but I like that look, and just wanted to make sure. The last thing I want to do is to appropriate anybody's cultural identity. I was thinking about doing it with Addy's hair, but hers is already up in a nice braid and I don't want to take it down, whereas Julie's was cut by someone before I got her, and it's long in the back but there's this one twig right at one side that is chopped to shoulder length, and that one lone twig there in a braid was bugging the crap out of me and I'm not about to go cut Julie's hair till it's all shoulder-length.

WHEEEE

So. I hit eBay again. And bought probably the saddest Julie I've ever seen. She seems to be in good condition. I'll know tomorrow. But someone has fingernail polished her fingers. And cut off her thumbs. I wish I was kidding but I'm entirely not. Someone CUT OFF her thumbs. Just who in the hell... Why. I just what the fuck?

Add this to the ranks of oh my god kids under eight don't need A*G.

I probably won't be able to fix the thumbs. But at least I can fix the nail polish I think. But I like my dolls less than perfect so there you go.

Pictures forthcoming when I can pay the $9.99 to get my visually impaired camera app access back for a month. Screw that. Think I'll just take the pictures and check them over later.

In other news, I also have a mountain of English homework to finish tomorrow. We've gotten into historical literature of the twenties and it's not too bad.

PS: Julie came with a full outfit, including shoes for what an unclothed A*G usually sells for.
