Halloween Costume Ideas?

I need ideas for Halloween costumes for these losers. I wanna do something really zany yet relatable, so I keep trying to think of pop culture cross-over ideas that chould work for my dolls.

By cross-overs I mean, like, Social Media sites as Magical girls (Which doesn’t work because Magat cannot rock a dress), or like those Restaurant Mascots as Final Fantasy Characters cosplay that was super popular how many years back.

Can anyone throw some ideas/keywords my way? LOL

Just a note about your Taobao blog... slashes and dashes ( / and - ) break the tags (ex. the tag "1/6 scale" can't be viewed, as it contains /), so before it's too late you might want to change that. Google "tumblr tag widget" and the first result that pops up should be helpful for your tags page as well!

Hi Anon! Thanks for your concern! Does not everyone have automatic URL normalization? I’m aware that slashes and other symbols make use of percent encoding (i.e. “1/3rd” turns into “1%2F3rd”) and that’s not as pretty to type, but my impression was that anyone looking would just click the tags, rather than manually typing the tag in the url?

But if it doesn’t automatically normalize for everyone else, I guess I’ll look into it. Thank you! :3

Alek finds BJD stuff on Taobao   

Since I’m pretty much addicted to Taobao, I decided to create a blog where I catalogue the neat stuff I find on the site on my various window shopping trips. xD

The blog itself is still a work in progress but I’ve already started posting some finds so feel free to check it out. I’m also always happy to help if you’re looking for something specific. :3

I spent the weekend at the SMX Convention Center manning the ManikaManila display at the #BestofAnime convention and it was so much fun!

IDK but I personally really love talking to people about the dolls, especially the families/parents who are somewhat interested in getting them for their kids because they’re just full of questions.

We had 3 ‘representative’ dolls (my Usa, dollstars' Starr cosplaying as Matsuoka Rin, & mechadolls' Naoto) and litereally more than a hundred people asked to carry them! <3  (We've got photos up on the ManikaManila fb page, if you wanna see.)

Each of the three seemed to cater to a specific demographic xD (And IDK about you but I’m horrified that Usa’s a really big hit with kids.)

These are #manikamanila whor&#8212; err, spokespeople. They&#8217;re mingling with the #bestofanime con goers and each hit a specific demographic. :3 #bjd

LOL MatchBJD is so full of weeboos. So many crossdressers and girly boys with Japanese names I am not surprised.

~Anonymous

And yet… only two out of the five submissions I have gotten have had Japanese names? And of those, maybe only one of them could be…

While I really appreciate you coming to Yoi’s defence, Bee (like really, it warms my heart ;w;), she isn’t quite… Female. XD

Not that she hasn’t considered it, she’s just content with her male identity. What she really cares about is her self expression and looking pretty,and to her, pronouns are part of the package since she thinks feminine pronouns are prettier than masculine pronouns.

She’ll pretty much agree with OP for calling her a weeaboo girly-boy. lol

[Name:] Yayoi Iijima[Age:] 28*[Gender:] Male**
[Story-Type:] Real World[Brief Personality:] Yayoi is both sweet and sassy at the same time. She’s nice to everyone and her kindness often borders on flirtatiousness. She likes beautiful things and doesn’t like talking about anything negative because she has a lot to hide and isn’t good at hiding when she’s bothered.
She does have the penchant for supporting people she thinks are down on their luck or being belittled. Sometimes maybe to the point of taking on their problems for herself. Don’t push her though, she might not like fighting, but she’s really good at it. 
[Five Likes:] Flowers, Fashion, Hard Candy, Fast Songs &amp; Tall Men.[Three Dislikes:] Secretive Women, Strict Men &amp; Cold Mornings.
[Interested In:] Men to date, Anyone to friend-date. :3[Other Info:] Yayoi does not really show that much skin usually. (It’s just my favourite picture of her at the moment.) She hates her shoulders and wishes she was shorter. And while Yayoi would love to date people, she isn’t into super serious relationships at all.
*Actually, Yayoi is also an immortal more than 300 years old, but this is not relevant to RPing because she does not tell anyone this and does not make use of any supernatural powers. For all intents and purposes, she would just look like a regular person.
**Yayoi, despite her entirely feminine appearance and preference for female pronouns, is a man. She does not think of herself a woman, and does not hide that she is a man, but just likes to be referred to as she/her.

I was scanning through my photos when I realized I never posted this before.
It was a very half-assed attempt at an entry for the MM Tiangge photo contest theme “Dolls just wanna have fun”. I only realized I fucked up after sewing the outfit and begining to shoot: I dressed Yoi as Olivia Newton John, not Cyndi Lauper! 
Silly Alek. How dare you mix up these 80s style icons!

At yesterday&#8217;s #manikamanila minimeet, a point of conversation was Usa&#8217;s ability to stand, and he was having none of it as myself &amp; others tried our darnest to get him to pose (Ryan&#8217;s efforts were particularly valiant). But today, he just basically said &#8220;Fuck you bitches, I stand when I want.&#8221; You little shit, you. #dollchateau #bjd
