Face Time: a charity doll raises awareness and two teen “living dolls” raise eyebrows on the Net.

This has been an interesting week—seven days filled with dolls that promise to be made in the image of often-overlooked children, while abald-barbie1 pair of children came to the foreground and demanded to be seen, heard, adored and looked at, via YouTube, of course.

After an online campaign, which had launched on Facebook, brought a massive amount of signatures to Mattel’s attention, the California-based toy company conceded to the group’s requests. A “bald Barbie” will be manufactured and distributed to children’s hospitals and alopecia foundations to be given as comforting playthings and as reminders to children with cancer and other health issues that they are not alone.

mattelheadquarters1The doll will come with accessories that reflect the challenges and routines that young girls afflicted with hair loss encounter and deal with on a daily basis. Not sold in stores, the “bald Barbie” is Mattel’s way of recognizing the special children who dwell among us. It’s also a very charitable and publicity-friendly way of acknowledging the power of people who come together to post and be heard. It puts a new spin on the notion of lobbying: a group that has a cohesive message and a well-strung plan can have their demands met without ever venturing into a company’s lobby. It is virtual democracy at its best!

The creation of this new doll, which is being billed as one of Barbie’s friends, has gotten its fair share of laudatory postings, but it also has garnered some snarky, snide asides. (“What next—an HIV Barbie with blotches and weight loss?” “Are you going to make a diabetic Barbie with insulin and needles?” “Children don’t need to think about death and illness. Why is Mattel doing this? What’s in it for them?”)

I suppose Mattel has taken the high road—realized that a groundswell of popular opinion was brewing against them, and knew that manufacturing the doll to sell would smack of being a “death merchant.” By making the dolls, and gifting them to children with illnesses or treatments that cause hair loss, the company is doing something that is kind, considerate, and caring. Take that, pessimists and cynics.

The Facebook campaign is a success story—showing that the Internet is not a playground solely constructed for pedophiles, identitymega-millions1 thieves, swindlers, and Nigerian princes who need a loan of $10,000 to free up the treasury of their nation, and they’ll reward you tenfold for your troubles at a later date. (I REALLY don’t know how people fall for that African royalty debt scam, but then again, I do fall for the Mega Millions and/or Power Ball every two weeks or so!)

Though it would be nice to conclude this blog with a happily-ever-after nod to cyber crowds spreading happiness and good cheer, that would exclude the OTHER big story of the past week: the unique living dolls who might be giving doll collecting a black eye (or, to be more accurate, a pair of glossy, glassy anime eyes).

VenusBJDdoll1The Internet was buzzing with the exploits of two young girls who purport to be such fans of Japanese animedakotaheadshotbjd1 and BJDs that they have turned themselves into “living dolls.” The girls—one, a peroxide blonde, is known as “Venus Angelic,” and the other, a light brunette, is “Kota Koti”—are said to be between 15 and 18 years old. Venus resides in England: Kota is said to be a “West Coast of America” denizen. So, these two girls, who reside an ocean apart, have both gained notoriety by posting photos and videos of themselves as they transform into very convincing BJDs.

Both girls collect the dolls, are fans of Japanese pop culture, and seized upon a way to gain their 15 minutes of fame. Social media critics are bemoaning how these girls embody the decline of Western civilization; they condemn their actions as “fetishizing young girls into adult sex objects.” The girls have been taken to task for being creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, altogether ooky—feel free to hum “The Addams Family” theme song here.

Reading about them and viewing snippets of Venus’s interview on YouTube, I have to say . . . I partially agree. This does seem like a bizarre way to grab some infamy and get tongues wagging and fingers clicking on keyboards. But the still photos of the girls’ efforts are another story.

cindysherman1When a collector studies these photos where the girls are transformed into these dolls from wigs to tights to pointed toes, a person can’t help but be impressed. There’s a world-famous photographer, Cindy Sherman, who has gained colossal standing in the art world (I guess, I should capitalize it as Art World, because everyone adores her, and she’s such a big deal in this high-faluting realm). She has won awards, has had gallery and museum exhibitions, and is the subject of scores of books and reviews because she dresses up and takes photos of herself.

I’ve seen Sherman’s different exhibitions in Chicago, in New York City, and in Paris. She is revered. Through costuming herself, applying specific wig choices, makeup palettes, background selections, and set décor, she is a chameleon who can make herself a scared runaway in one photo, a dangerous femme fatale in another, a Donna Reed-inspired happy homemaker or an Xaviera Hollander happy hooker. It is remarkable how Sherman knows that certain appearances trigger immediate responses. We’re not supposed to be guided by stereotypes or gender biases, but in our subconscious we all are. (Look at her metamorphosis into a grande dame, surrounded by photos of past achievements hung on her well-appointed wall, and what vibe do you pick up from it?)

Well, if Cindy Sherman can become a prizewinning photographer, social critic, and recognized genius, what about Venus and Kota? True, the fact that two teenage girls are spending their carefree, precious years doing this is bizarre and unusual. But I’m sure those same adjectives have been applied to Sherman’s work as well when it first started to garner attention.

dakotaroseBJD1So, are Venus Palermo (real name) and Dakota Rose (claims to be real name) for real? Are they two teens who are smitten with BJDs,venuspalermo1 had time on their hands, know the ins and outs of posting to YouTube and Facebook, and decided to show off their harmless hobbies?

Or are they both jaded jockeys for fame? They saw a chance to become Internet sensations by doing something unusual and controversial, and they went for it. How much of their schtick to look like three-dimensional stick figures is true, and how much is being done for the cameras?

Having worked in the doll industry for more than 15 years, I’ve seen it all, but haven’t done it all. I’ve never made myself up to look like my favorite fashion doll or action figure, but I can see how that would be a compelling thing to try. (Note to self: Must purchase a camera tripod and a corset.)

It’s interesting that in the same week, we’ve learned of a world-famous toy giant that is making news by making dolls that are not typical of a girl’s plaything: dolls that are without hair, suggesting lives lived with physical difficulties but remaining symbols of hope. And we also learned of two girls who don wigs and pale foundation powder and pose as inanimate objects while critics ascribe all kinds of motives to them. “Bald Barbie” and “ball-jointed living dolls” have both popped up on our radar screen during the same news cycle. One is an unabashed feel-good story—which still managed to attract detractors; the other is more nebulous and murky and eccentric and fascinating. By disguising their humanity, these two teens have got legions of people watching and commenting.

STILL, the uninformed wonder what is doll collecting all about? It’s about life, in all its shapes, sizes, and stages.

T: I don't think you read the whole blog. The writer is saying that the girls' photo work is just as good as Cindy Sherman's, a famous artist. She's not demonizing them. She was reporting what critics have said about them. They both are extremists, but all artists are extremists to one degree or another. Reread the blog. You are angry and cursing needlessly.

Stop demonizing those girls. As someone who collects dolls you have no place to put such rude judgement on them. They like dolls and like a type of japanese fashion..that does not make them sick, freaky, fame-seeking or fetishists. They are not wasting their "precious years" by doing this.. they are doing something artsy and something they enjoy. Did you waste your time collecting dolls or writing on a website about doll collecting? Then don't say they waste their time. At least these girls are not out there dressing like the sluts and whores in the media that all the other girls their age and older are trying to be like. I don't see them trying to be a whore like Kim Kardasian or a Drug head like Lindsay Lohan. They are harmless and are not freaks. They are lovely, beautiful girls who have an interesting, pretty hobby. Chances are when they hit 18 or 20 they will stop dressing like dolls. They will either "Grow out of it" or they'll just tone it down like most Japanese people do who follow these types of fashions. There's nothing wrong with them if they decide to keep doing it too. You might as well insult people who attend Renaissance Festivals, dress as fairies or mermaids or people who enjoy Steampunk or Scifi/Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc because they enjoy dressing up in the styles of those subjects.

If you are not harming someone, if you are not killing someone, promoting hate or being cruel...then why the fuck does it matter if these girls are dressing like dolls and posting videos? They can't help it if some one out there is sexualizing them. IT's not their fault. You might as well blame every child that goes outside or gets their photo taken and their mothers because there's pedophiles out there who sexualize and festishize them. See how absolutely ridiculous and stupid that is? I am a fat woman and I know that there are men out there who find fat women sexually arrousing and fetish them. Does that make me not show my face in public or online or otherwise tip toe around society/the internet because someone may or might not see me and whack their willie at the thought of me? No. Life is too fucking short to worry about what other people think about you or might be doing in regards to how you look.

Why don't you worry more about all the young girls who are WHORES, having sex as a teenager, getting knocked up at 13, having babies when they are still babies, doing drugs, getting drunk regularly before they are 21, making complete fools of themselves on a daily basis and are the downfall of society as a whole instead of a few girls wearing circle lenses and cosplay?


You should be ashamed of yourself!!!!!

Congrats to Mattel for being generous and aware of how children, who are ill and "different," need role models and comfort. Good job! And those teen girls who have made themselves look like dolls--they're talented and a bit kooky. Perfect recipe for success in the entertainment industry!

The Chicago Toy Show

You haven’t seen a toy show until you’ve seen this one. Six buildings! Over six hundred exhibitors! Exclusively toys and dolls and children’s playthings on display everywhere! This is the show everyone always says they intend to visit, and now is the time to do just that. Collectors say the Chicago Toy Show really is the largest in the entire world. They are correct. Collectors say they find toys at this show that are never seen anywhere else. Correct again.
