Goblin Spider by Forest Rogers

Goblin Spider was inspired by a folktale and traditional Japanese ukiyo-e prints. Elaborate hairpins made me think “legs,” of course. I also noticed that many beauties were depicted holding a bit of folded fabric or tissue in their mouths. This was a come-hither symbol, sufficiently demure to get past court censors but widely understood as erotic (don’t attempt it with Bounty Duratowel — it loses in translation). Thus, mouse in mouth.

Back to the Future : Marty McFly

“This is heavy doc.” Back to the Future is a pop culture icon and one of the best time-travel films of all time! It remains to be a highly popular movie even decades after the film is first released! Next year marks the 30th anniversary of this classic film and today Hot Toys is very excited to present the 1/6th scale Collectible Figure of the film’s main character – Marty McFly!

The movie-accurate Marty McFly Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly in the movie, featuring the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume and a number of accessories.

Back to the Future fanatics should not miss the opportunity to pre-order this wonderful collectible figure!

Pre-ordering at Ani-Com will include a 1/6th scale guitar as bonus accessory.

Hong Kong customers please stay tuned on Hot Toys-Secret Base Facebook Page for pre-order arrangement details.


Hong Kong Dollism Plus 9

My first ever international trip and it was AMAZING. To have so many dolls beautifully displayed in an equally beautiful venue is simply a feast for the eyes (and a torture to wallets, LOL). Of particular mention are Dollmore’s Lusion Dahlia and Trinity Elysia (which looked every bit as impressive as they are huge), SWITCH’s LE’s (definitely a crowd puller), Granado’s sculpts and bodies (the Titan body is rather scary and intimidating to own when you see it), Oasisdoll’s porcelain line (so petite and delicate!), and my favorite of them all: Doll Chateau’s prototype (I assume). I salute their sculptors for such craftsmanship and design.

It was very exhilarating to buy doll items in person, to be able to closely scrutinize them before making the purchase. It makes all the money spent worth it. I personally only limited myself to wigs and shoes and accessories, but it was quite a treat to see a wide array of styles displayed.

Definitely worth flying out to another country for!

Last week I finished off a few small details of The Red Dragon underbust corset, by my talented friend Christine Wickham of Ariadne’s Thread, who sadly passed away a fortnight ago. She was known on tumblr as A Girl From Down Under and under the same name on YouTube. It was incredibly moving to complete it for her and it’s special to be able to share her beautiful work with you all. Let’s celebrate her work and dive into our own with as much enthusiasm as we can muster.

I have written a small tribute celebrating her life and our friendship, you can read it here
