This doll looks just as confused as I do.
“Wait, you actually wasted time crocheting this thing and expect me to look happy wearing it? I hope it did warm your heart because it’s leaving me cold. You should probably play with Barbie from now on; I’m not sure we can remain friends.”
“Look lady, I don’t care if we’re in the middle of a photo shoot. You either push me on the swing now, or I throw the mother of all temper tantrums and ruin the rest of your day.”
OK… so, generic super princesses fine.
Generic Superman… OK.
Generic G.I. Joe… sure.
Generic… Skeletor? I mean, it’s close enough, I guess…
And generic… He-Man?
I mean, it’s a stretch at best, but let’s face it, they lost any hope of gaining points by painting on the unibrow. I honestly don’t remember the hero of Eternia ever being in need to going to a threader.
Lady on right: “Look Martha, here are the drawers I’m NOT going to wear under my dress tonight!”
Lady on left: “Oh quit fooling around, Jane, and get dressed already. We’re gonna be late for the party!”
Lady on right: “Fooling around is the exact reason why I AIN’T sporting these puppies!!”
Lady on left: “Just keep smiling until she drives off…”
Girl on right: “Can’t that car go any faster?”
Lady on left: “Right? As soon as grandma’s out of sight, we can take off these hideous sweaters.”
Girl on right: “I appreciate her making us stuff, but damn, theses things are awful.”
Lady on left: “I feel kinda bad, but there is no way in Hell I’m wearing this potholder in public.”
Girl on right: “Good thing she only visits once a year.”
Lady on left: “I lover her to death, but I really hope that yarn store burns down soon.”
A facial expression that says,
“Mommy, I love you, but never make me anything to wear again.”
Normally I’d be tearing apart a goofy craft scene like this, but not today kids!
I’m actually going to give the shoot director some credit here because this is, hands down, the most thought-out crocheted doll clothes scene I’ve ever seen; and believe you me, I’ve seen my fair share of questionable crocheted doll clothes scenes.
One could argue that there are no dolls of color in the mix, but I’ll save that debate for another day. They DO have the blind fold, the piñata stick AND the colorful piñata burro!
