I totally forgot to post yesterday on the holy of holies...Barbie's birthday. But it was understandable. It is also my wedding anniversary.
So here is my tribute to the plastic goddess we all go broke for. This is classic black dress redressed in Betty Draper's party gown and I took that elastic thing off her ponytail to let her hair fly away loose. She looks much better and at ease now. Here she is having her cake and eating it too. She's looking good at 57.
I've been really busy with the auctions as well writing a 1:6 scale tutorial for contribution to an E-book for a writer who asked me to help, as well as getting photos together for Poppy and Ryan getting ready to meet Poppy's parents. I took those today and hopefully can get a blog post ready. I am thinking of making Poppy's parents severely disfunctional as I re-write the type of Doctor Dr. Parker is- not a medical doctor but he holds a doctorate in Egyptology which is why he gets along with Uncle Giles so well and wastes money on digs and travel lecturing. He married Penelope, Poppy's mother, a debutante with a trust fund, related to the Baroness, which enabled him to devote himself to archeology without having to fund it to much the regular way with grants and paperwork, but networking with the rich and famous. His wife found it romantic at first but then devastatingly boring to be in the middle of nowhere digging for pieces and bits of broken pots as she calls it when she could be shopping for the latest fashion with her cousins .Devoted to her daughters and family, she finds her husband's obsession with dead mummys amusing at best, infuriating at worst.
That's the background so far on Poppy's parents. So I hope to be along with the story line in a bit.
