Typhoon Haiyan Charity Auction Sale

 Rudy Teruel of R&D Dolls has been organizing an auction event for the benefit of people who have suffered and continue to suffer as a result of the super typhoon in the Philippines. The auction will take place on December 15 - tomorrow.

Most, if not all, of you am sure are aware of the recent tragedy that is Typhoon Yolanda, or Haiyan Typhoon, as more commonly known in the West.  Said to be the worst ever Typhoon in the history to date, it struck the Philippines and left over 7,000 people dead ( with many more unaccounted for) and left millions of people with Nothing!  And I mean Nothing!  No houses, no clothing, no food, no livelihood...  Thanks to those who sent aid fast - from all over the world - people are getting some much needed help...  But as we know with something as devastating as this - much more Aid will be Needed for some time to come.

We, at R&D Collectibles, decided to do our share - and with the help of our many dolly friends worldwide - we will hold a Typhoon Haiyan Charity Auction / Sale come middle of December.  Now, we know that it means everyone will be in the midst of their Holiday preparations and Celebrations - but we do hope that you will take the time to look through and purchase something for a love one, family, friends or even for yourself!  It will just give your Dolly purchase a bit more meaning, knowing that your $$$ will help the victims of Haiyan Typhoon.
Collectors, designers and dealers all over the world have been sending in contributions which you can see at Rudy's site here: http://rnddolls.blogspot.com/
The dolls include Barbie, Fashion Royalty, Misaki, Momoko, DAE's Vivian, Evangeline Ghastly, Pullip, OOAK Monster High, Tyler Wentworth and more.

Be sure to check in at http://www.rnddolls.blogspot.tw/search/label/Haiyan%20Typhoon%20Relief on December 15th for the event.


Makies: 3D Printable Dolls

3D printing is pretty much a scientific mystery to me. I love a good sci-fi story so here is the information from the company called MakieLab.
MakieLab has developed a system of creating objects using game technologies – 3D Studio Max, Unity, 3D objects – and transmogrifying them into 3D-printable toys complete with internal working joints.
Which means = we can model toys then manufacture toys, overnight.
There are some limitations to this emerging tech, like the plastic is only available in porcelain white (although we can dye it), and it costs more to print objects in 3D than running off vinyl in the billions in China. BUT! The upsides are amazing: completely customisable toys. Toys that can be modified overnight. Toys made in Britain (ours are currently printed in London). Toys where you, the user, get to fiddle about and make something that suits you.
I went through the process of designing a doll.

 The order total came to £69.00 ($112.64) I may actually do this one day.

Look carefully at this photograph of Madame V entitled "Holiday Cheer." I cracked up. Gerri is such a talented photographer.

Note: I did not correct the lack of capitalization as I think they think it is a cute thing to do since they do not capitalize the name of their business. 

I'm at a loss for words.
I won't write what I'm thinking either except the word lampshade comes to mind.
