Last month I sold all but five of the prints in The Doll Project solo show at The Adler School of Professional Psychology. I decided to use the money I earned to get everything I needed to finish the project. I had a very long wish list of dolls, clothing, and props I needed to take the photos I envisioned. So I went for it. And a whole lot of the things I ordered came this week.
This vintage Casey doll came packed in a box full popcorn. Yes, the kind you eat, not the Styrofoam variety.
I am always afraid that buying used items online will lead to insect infestations, and opening a box full of edible popcorn did nothing to allay my fears.
An eBay seller sent me a doll wrapped in a layer of Saran Wrap with what appeared to be a piece of vinyl wallpaper folded around it as a makeshift envelope. That was pretty weird, too.
Anyway, I am glad that I will soon be able to take the remaining pictures so that I can finish my Doll Project book.
