ok, idk how easy this is to read but since everyone is discussing dates, i went to the movie to check. this is steve’s rejection from the beginning, his birthday is in the upper right corner and there’s ANOTHEr date in the lower left which I think is supposed to be a today’s date kind of thing and it looks to be June 14 1943
so there we go, steve enlists in mid 1943

#this feels late for bucky to be enlisting #but that isn’t the issue
How interesting that you would mention this, because I’ve recently been thinking he didn’t enlist. His serial number, which he’s heard muttering when Steve comes to rescue him, starts “32557.”
According to this fabulous WWII serial number generator, an enlisted man from New York should have a serial number starting with the numbers “12.”
A New York man with a serial number starting with “32”? Drafted. What we may be dealing with here is a Bucky who didn’t choose to go to war but was instead compelled to do so versus a Steve who is desperate to get in. I think it opens up a lot of different and interesting storylines for the two of them.

There’s been some great meta/discussion about this in the last couple days, which I think is great.

Makes you wonder if Bucky got the draft, and then, knowing how Steve felt about things, told his best buddy he was “enlisting.” Because how do you face this skinny, brave idiot who just won’t stop trying to volunteer that you wouldn’t be going if you didn’t have to?

Bucky was dragging his feet and Steve would know that. I think Steve was well aware that his friend had been drafted, and he specifically requests the same unit. Between the draft notice and when he was actually shipped out, Steve had time to attempt to to enlist at different stations. He’s losing not only his best friend, but the only thing like a family he has left, too. He is going to be alone. 
Not that this undermines how Steve is a good person who feels strongly about bullies and defending the weak, but it does put a very interesting and human perspective on his character, and helps explain why he is shown pretty lost and friendless, even easily manipulated, up until the point when /Bucky is at stake/, when he gets reckless, and then afterwards once he has his friend back, when he then has it all together.

The eeeeevil queen’s daughter, Raven, struck some days ago. Her lovely cape stained the other girls’ faces, making them way less pretty than her, when my daughter left the dolls stacked overnight. (totally reasonable method of cleaning up, not blaming her one bit)

Thankfully Mattel is full of good fairies, and is sending new girls to replace the marred ones, and we’ll know better now to keep it from happening again.

But Beware the cape of Raven Queen, for it doth stain!

Hello friend! Sorry to hear that this happened to your little girl’s dolls! That is crazy how fast that happened. What are you doing with the ruined dolls? I’m needing some EAH bodies for some rebody projects I’m working on. Also, I still have your dresses for you, will you be at Nashicom this weekend perhaps? Anyways, I hope you are doing well!! :D

I’d love to get ahold of the dresses. Since its Easter Weekend, not sure I can get away with going to a con, but I can probably arrange meeting down there to get them! I am going to attempt to repaint Ashlynn, as I think she’s savable with a repaint. Briar is a loss, I think, so I don’t need that body, but I need to ask Jbug to be sure.

I will redo and work on him a little more, since I need that snarky Loki expression back for my doll, but I am trying a new technique for painting doll heads. This is a totally different sort of style for me, and it takes a lot more time to do, but I am working on making the doll’s skin look like real skin.

Once I get the hang of it, I’ll offer it as an option for face-ups, but the price will be higher than the usual ones.

Free comic book day

I will be at Free Comic Book day at Scratch and Spin in Columbia, SC. Not only can you come down and get totally FREE comic books that are actually good, but I will have ALL the Marvel dolls on display at the same time. I will also be drawing for people, for free. There will be other artists there as well, as we have a sort of odd number of locals who are big names in comics. So if you live in driving distance, come on by!

Look familiar?

I found the perfect fabric for Loki’s scarf from the first Thor movie! And here is the fun bit…I had enough fabric to make 3 extra scarves, which Loki wishes to give to you! Only one catch…he demands tribute.

Make Loki (or any of my heroes) a prop or article of clothing they can use, and a scarf is yours. The scarves are all finished and will not continue to fray and are made from high quality wool.

Send me a message!

Today my gps is just happy that I’m on the road.
