Hey there fellow dollers! :heart:

I'm going to rise back from dead and start dolling again :) Man, my last piece was made one year ago... sigh...
Anyway, are there some actice dolling communities? Some forums, sites, groups, anything. I was totally off the whole dolling world, and I miss all this and want to come back to being active.

Features - Pageants!

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,
I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling.
  
I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is.

You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base.

Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.

I desperately need a translation of a short text! Well, one of my friend promised that he'll do it, but hi didn't and now I'm kinda desperate, because I need it for now. I don't trust online translators and I on't have any friends who can translate a text without a problem. And it's really easy, it's not complicated.

If someone will be so nice to translate it to french, I'll make him a free doll/icon/pixel art!

The text:

"My name is Monika, I was born in Grodzisk. I love this town, but I have the people because they are too small-minded. Now I live in Poznań and I hate this town because is too big for me. I don't know where my home is.

It's incridibly easy to cut the contact with the person - it's primarly the matter of changing the tone of speaking. Go ahead, let her stay! Let her stay and look. Or let's leave. Yeah, let's go. I didn't think we could just leave like that."

I will be sooooooooo grateful!

Miss Doll Europe 2012!

I'm looking for an article called "Costuming for Fun and Fandom". It was written by John Flynn and published in Starlog magazine in June 1989. My friend needs it very badly for her master's thesis titled "The costuming and acting as performance in fan culture". So guys, we need your help! We know it's availabe on eBay, but transport to Poland costs and price is way too huge for every student in Poland ;)

If anyone have acces to this article at home, library, whutev, it would be soooo awesome if you can send it to us! More info here: conreeaght.deviantart.com/jour… . And If you want a reward I can make you a doll of something you want :) not a chibi one, but big one!

Thanks for your attention!

Hey dolling community! Let's try something fun! :D -> operationbase.webs.com/ <-

There's a nice contest out there - base pageant! I know lots of us love pageants of any kind, but using always the same bases starts to be boring. Base pageant would be an awesome different contest and maybe will kick dolling world a little bit to beeing alive ;)

I'll enter even if I'm not a good basemaker (chibis ok, but my anatomy skills are to poor for making nice fullbody bases).

<frustration>

What the heck is going on again? Seriously, the one who said that the society which contains 99% of females is sentenced on eternal wars (Sorry for my poor english, I hope you'll get the point). I'm really tired of these dramas. We waren't so discorded earlier, dolling community, were we? Or I was young and stupid so I didn't notice the dramas...
I don't know what's going on. I can read some info in journals and comments, but... Nah, I don't want to be part of it. I don't know if I'm still in the community because I'm starting to don't care.
I'll just enjoy the dolling itself.
