(Working on @moon_armada website. @honest_kevin 's BabyBot on picture).
I can't remember myself playing dolls being a girl. I was probably, but I don't remember this fact. I loved to play with other things instead of dolls, as salt and pepper shakers for example. I walked in forests and picked up animal-looking sticks, strange ill leaves.. my backpack was full of rocks and snail shells, paper clips, buttons, accidental ants.. I loved to build...
I had dolls also, at least I had a Barbie.. and I had neighbour girls to whom I could join with my Barbie. But looks like I never was a part of bigger children gang. I always had only 1, maximum 2 person to play with. and not barbie games.
I started to be interested in dolls after school though, I was buying them in secondhand and destroying to have parts for building SOMETHING ELSE. I was sculpting small dolls to combine them with normal doll heads, I was making doll parts jewellery, interior dolls, steampunk dolls.... It was about 8 years of big passion and then a doll-silence.
Then I found moon armada. or Moon armada found me.. dolls came back again! In a new guise! now I "play" with them on screen. .. I talk with them, give them names, think adventures for them. I continue building their personality and show it to you.
Now I build SOMETHING MORE from dolls which were destroyed to become SOMETHING ELSE.
Great, hah !!? #appias_design
