The Wee Peeple Newsletter 

April 2010            Issue 38

Spring!  Nice Flowers!  yay!

 

uh-oh....

Set in a world where intrepid Seafarers carefully drew coiling Sea Monsters 

into the waters of their maps....

The Dollmaker's Latest Obsession...

The Dollmaker shall now attempt to define 

Well!  It's...  Mad Science!  Preposterous Inventions!  Top Hats!

 Time Machines!

Propeller-driven Flying Airships and Submarines!

Genius Misfit Daredevils bubbling about at 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!  

 Similarly intrepid adventurers Voyaging to the Center of the Earth!  Hot!

By Jove,  a whole ticking, clacking, popping movement risen up around Pressurized Steam! 

ah! The Romance of Locomotives belching smoke, gear-driven clockworks, adjustable goggles! Vacuum tubes, monocles, pistons! Flywheels! Flicker-movies!! A miniature derringer hidden in a secret compartment in the heel of a boot belonging to a shadowy stranger...

 It's about grunge leather, brass-studded, somewhat utopian, somewhat hooligan, strapped-on, spring-propelled gadgets...

OK... AND! Cool Villians! Solar deathrays fueled by crystal and copper, ionized force domes generated by a tuning fork.... (evil chuckle)

Jake Von Slatt

 Making bicycles fly...

Victorian, Vaudeville, Fantastical 

 

.... proper fashion for a proper revolution, a brass distillery in every home... giant vegetables and man-eating squid!

it's all this and more... but

This is the Dollmaker's favorite definition:

"Steampunk is a balance of

the "what was",  the "what should've been"  and  the "what the hell!" 

Totally hip Sharon Buse purchases a Steampunk Cat! Go girlfriend!

At Scarborough Faire the Renaissance Festival!

Meanwhile, barrelling into our 4th week of

OH YES! Girls are still going wild over this year's

Sisters, and cousins and friends, oh my!

The Doll Arte Gallerie was brightened by a visit from Mia, one of our original BeadHead Doll Models, now five years old.

This Luna Moth landed on a doll and stayed there all day!

 

 

In fact, the Flower Annie Catpeeple Doll was purchased with the Luna Moth still on her!

Also at Scarborough Faire...

Kimberly Graham purchasing two Reality Bunnies!

Reality Bunnies are a hit at Scarborough Faire

"REALITY" Wees because they are made from REAL recycled containers

Re-use- re-cycle- re-create!

Happy Wee Tweedles found a new home in an

"Alice in Wonderland" Collection! Yay!

So, the Dollmaker's

"Alice in Wonderland Doll Collection"
