hibdonianmusings asked: They do have more planned than just "supposedly standard white girl"
i really really hope it takes off because the doll is adorable and the concept is real neat
i dont want to rewrite my intro to my speech, but the one i have is so incredibly bad
i mean at least i have everything obsessively cited, so it’s better than some of the speeches ive heard so far, but man i super dont want to do it
I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
i hope they have some WoC versions planned, body positivity isnt just for white girls
the seams down the front of her legs bother me as well but hey, not bad for a basic prototype
theres tiny deers on BBCA rn and im so happy
