Robin of Roville Writes [About] StarDolls

Do you know what I know? Don't worry ... I am not going to drag it out. The post title leaks the story. Robin of Roville has a blog! Eeekkkk! Robin is the tour de force behind the incomparable Roville. When I began doll and action figure online activity back in 1997, Robin was one of the first doll enthusiasts who maintained a constant storyline using incredibly detailed sixth scale dioramas and fascinating characters. And she was/is pleasant and generous with her tips and suggestions. Everyone dancing now? Sure. And most kindly, she mentions moi in her StarDoll post when she tipped me to their existence. (Eyes widen, mouth opens, splayed hand to chest in mock modesty - wink and grin as recovery sets in.)

My silliness aside, go visit the Roville blog and see which bodies Robin uses for her StarDoll heads. I won't tell which ones she uses. Nope, horses won't drag the story from me. (Not that horses or de Cat or the turtles would likely want to ....) The dolls are beautifully photographed in a cafe setting.

But you don't need to take my word - go see. Bye for now.

Roville was/is always a wonderful place to visit. Surprisingly I haven't visited there in over 3 yrs. Wow! I used to visit often. Now I view her pics on Flickr. She does AMAZING work. I have to admit I miss some of the old stuff. I was sad when it disappeared. Thanks for reminding me to go visit.

Oh Happy Day! It seems like Blogger has fixed the subscribe problem. I see I can now subscribe!

Hello from Spain: one of the first blog I followed in America was that of Rovin, Roville. Even sent several e-mails asking for clothes and bags from her dolls. Her work is always awesome. Everything in her dioramas is taken care of. Thanks for recommending it. Keep in touch.

Hi Vanessa and Marta! I am happy to remind you about that site. For a time, we needed to enter a password to access the adult content. I think that is still the case. But there is stuff open to all ... diorama tips, diorama settings, etc.

Cheridoll was another lifelike playscale site. Your sites are also awesome, Vanessa and Marta. When I "grow up" as a collector, I want to have a playscale world like you four ;-)

I spent a few hours pouring over her site today! I too have gone in a while. I did something stupid or something but I could never view the adult pages. Oh, well. I really miss Pink Day! That was my favorite! I thought it was the best way to use all that pink Barbie stuff!
