Introductions, Prefaces and Prologues

Greetings and Salutations. I'd like to make this brief because most people hate wordy entries and I do want someone to want to read this.

I am a magpie. I collect things that remind me of my childhood. I was schooled in fairy tales. I never stopped believing in them. In a way, they're my reality. I am an illustrator by profession. I love my job because the whole process of creating gives me a high and to be paid for it, is swell bonus. I collect Blythe dolls and have currently 23 of them. I make my own doll dresses and that is what lead me to discover the fantabuous world of "dolly kei".

Since I always have a penchant for the folkloric, when shopping for clothes, I gravitate to the ornate, the embroidered, the beaded, just anything that doesn't look commonplace and of course with fairy tale flare. In no time I was able to amass quite a collection. In a sense, I have been wearing "dolly kei" fashion (pardon the redundancy) but in a more toned down manner. Discovering this aesthetic has thrilled me beyond my imagination. I never thought there was someone out there, let alone a community who dressed like me! I am excited to meet these magical people.

I dress dolly-kei on Fridays at work, my way to welcoming the weekend. Here are the looks I've worn so far.

Not so bad for a first post. I tried my best not to get long winded. I tend to ramble. Here's where the story ends for now. :-)
