Productivity Elimination Time!

Wait, you wanted to get work done today? Sorry about that. You’ll be playing with this:

The Regency Dress Up Doll: Heroine

The Regency Dress Up Doll: Hero

Time suck of awesome ahoy!

[Thanks to Moth for the links. I got nothing done for over an hour].

If you haven’t seen MightyGodKing’s reworking of his adolescent reading habits, enjoy. This is part two, but it’s my fave, from “My Little Pony” all the way down to “dogshit.”

[Thanks to DS for the links.]

And, if you haven’t done your holiday cards yet, let Joanne Renaud be your guide. Not only did she do illustrations for The Smart Bitch Book (and they are awesome – trust me) but she has her own line of Regency greeting cards for Christmas. That miss under the mistletoe looks frisky, yo.

    I lost twenty minutes looking at the regency hero, and then I noticed there were clothes to put on him!

  2. Desi says:

    Okay- I lost a whole hour to those two links. But I made a really hot hero and a perfectly innocent heroine for him to debauch.

  3. Tina C. says:

    I can’t get the clothes to work.  I can make the faces and hair, but I can’t get them dressed!

    Okay, on second thought, the idea that the hero and heroine refuse to get dressed is pretty damned funny.

    Great, another reason not to get any packing done. thanks.

    Loved the Twighlight book mock cover. Even got a laugh at the MZB even though I love the series.

  5. Thanks for the shout out, Sarah!  That’s so cool you included Savivi’s dress up dolls too.  And I hope everyone likes the cards!

  6. Maybe I’m just not fully awake yet, but I don’t see any cravats. How can I grace my randy rake with the requisite loose and untidy cravat? Why, I dare say there should be a category for cravats alone! 😛

  7. Christmas fun—love the cards.  I just know there’s a story behind the look she’s giviing him.  Clearly they’re a couple who know what to do with that mistletoe.  Where’s the Valentine’s Day cards with them?

    The paper dolls are likewise awesome.  Great work from smart and talented bitches.

    There are cravats in the Undress section.  I love the muslin see-through frock in the ladies’ Day section (it worked for my naughty characters).  I’ve spent half of today making dress-up (or dress-down) models of several of my characters.  And I don’t even write Regencies.

  9. There are cravats in the Undress section.

    Ah, thanks! That’s more like it. 😉

  10. Rebecca says:

    Ahhhhh! This is so subversive! How mean of you to share this on a Monday and not a Friday!

    Seriously though. These are really nice. She still has some kinks to work out but the work she has put in to these are wonderful.

    Also, they really make you think about how clothing was layered back then.

    I look forward to losing more than a few evenings to this.

  11. Wait, where is the ripped bodice?  What’s the point of having a hero and heroine if he can’t ravish her? AUSTEN’S PURITY BE DAMNED, I WANT HOT REGENCY SEXX0RS!

  12. Elise says:

    Oh no I have so much work to do…..must…. stop…. playing… with …dolls! I don’t think I’ve ever read a regency and this is really making me want to.

  13. Zoe Archer says:

    I agree with Rebecca that this is totally unwarranted on a Monday.  I have to write, damn your eyes!  Meanwhile, I’m deciding between the dove gray waistcoat and the dark blue jacket for my Regency hero.

    And I LOLed on those book covers, esp. the Robert Aspirin books and Twilight.  I had My Little Ponies and never once had them play at Ragnarok.

  15. SusannaG says:

    I went with the dove grey, Zoe, but the dark blue, now that you mention it, sounds lovely.  I couldn’t decide between the ladies’ necklaces and earrings – so lovely!

  16. Marski says:

    My 17 year old son glanced over at my hero doll moment of hyperfocus and said sad, “You make me feel bad for your life”.  I hate it when they are more mature than me!

    Loved the Twighlight/Dogshit cover.  I decided to show this to my son who laughed and I then redeemed myself in his eyes.  Just then the 11 year old daughter walks in the room – feeling a disturbance in her force – and announced that she wants me to take her and friend to see movie.  My son’s still belly laughing at me…..

  17. lizziebee says:

    OMG this is awesome!! I am going to lose my entire day to this 😀

  18. Annmarie says:

    I am in love with dressing and undressing these two.  I clearly gave up dolls too early as a child.  Or.  I am regressing.  Either way I’m having fun now!

  19. molly_rose says:

    I love the accesories; they are so classic (a domino, an eye patch, a scar, a brooding contenance and flowing virile hair)! Also, I’m not sure of the historical accuracy of my dolls – they are dressed, but there’s no undergarents beneath it all.

  20. Kim says:

    I don’t know if anyone else noticed, but she has a Marie Antoinette-ish paperdoll on there as well.

  21. Sarah says:

    Thank you so much for linking to my dolls!  I’m so glad people are enjoying them. 

    And Joanne’s mistletoe card is a story in itself.  I wish I could read it.  Yum.
