Two Dots and a Dash

I know it sounds like morse code but let me explain...
I have been working with Dotees lately and I must say that they are quite addicting! Just think of a theme and away you go making these little dolls that range from 4 to 6 inches. They were first started in Australia by a woman who came up with the idea and seems they have become wide spread via the internet. With one, I decided to do a flapper doll themed one for trade. I pondered just how I was going to do it and decided to make my own face and hair style compared to the other dotees. So was this breaking tradition? I am one that usually defies the rules and create my own thing anyway but I must say I really did enjoy figuring out how to do this and was pleased with the results.

Well, knowing me, I always hunt in the most unlikely places for arts and crafts supplies. I went to a Latin American festival last weekend in Columbus. I found my self getting earrings from one vendor. Then other interest groups also had their advertisements, brochures and such. Planned Parent Hood had a nice big bowl of condoms and immediately I saw a Dotee in the making! What better way to promote safe sex! Instead of taking one, they encouraged me to taking as many different colors as I wanted in spite of me telling me what I had planned to do! The dolls already lent themselves to the shape as well as the ever so popular eyes shut and smile on their faces! Who says you can only have fun in the bedroom with them. I find him quite handsome and dashing. I have named him Happy Harry!

Here's another, this one was the first one, but it wasn't fat enough to wear the condom, so while the other is naughty, this one is more heavenly!
