gorgon girls

a few monster girl things for femslash february.

  • a vampire lady whose wives help her with her hair and makeup since she can’t see herself in a mirror.
  • ghost girlfriends who ‘haunt’ the local gay bar, innocuously changing the music to the jazz that played when they were young. the owner loves it and remodels the bar to match.
  • a centaur and a faun who live in a cute forest cottage with wide doors and an apple orchard in the back. the faun does the gardening since her wife can’t comfortably reach the earth with her human hands, and the centaur picks the apples from the tall trees.
  • a gorgon with a gargoyle girlfriend who can always turn back from stone after looking into her eyes.
  • a siren who will die if a ship ever sails past her cove, and her harpie girlfriend who snatches up the sailors that try to resist the song.
  • werewolf wives with eight children. they are total soccer moms and the rest of the pta was terrified of them for months, but they won the other moms over with an amazing shepard’s pie at the potluck.
  • scylla and charybdis, cursed to half-lives as monsters living across from one another in the strait, find comfort in each other’s company. sailors talk of the pass between them narrowing at nights, truly impassible.
  • monster girls who love other girls (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

May I present to you: my brand new - actually just slightly different - setup on my left shelf! You can find pictures of the right shelf here. I threw out the big box aka. my oc Ginger’s room to provide even more space for… you guessed it: even more dolls! We’re currently awaiting the arrival of her royal highness Amanita Nightshade. ✧⁺⸜(●′▾‵●)⸝⁺✧

As you probably already know, I’m a bit obsessed with colour coordination and arranging my dollies according to said aesthetic. After their personal photoshoot, everyone is given a carefully picked place in the group and just kinda sits there. That’s why I felt the need to give my precious ghouls some more attention and what started out as a hunt for picture-worthy details ended up as a series I’d like to call “My dolls and how I started to ship them for the single reason of them sitting next to each other”.

My first find was the arrangement of Frankie, Jinafire and Asha, who look like an infamous mysterious girl squad judging everyone and their mom. After that, I took a picture of heart eyeing Viperine and Ginger, who got photobombed by my beauty Gilda. Next up are my tinies Twyla and River, who I ship since ‘Haunted’. After that, the shipping went bonkers with Catty and Purrsephone, who look cute together, Catrine and Operetta, who might even make sense since they’re both on the artistic side, Skelita and Toralei, who make no sense at all, but they’re orange, so yay, Moanica checking out Cleo, who has non of this shit and doesn’t even want to be frenemies, Dracubecca admiring Batsy, who she share’s the capacity of an adorably sculpted face mold with, and Mimi and Vera, who could be alter egos of Spectra and Bonita and also hold hands (because their stands are trash and they would fall over otherwise, but sssh, it’s cute).

Sorry for the rambling. Here is a link to all my doll pictures, including Barbie and Pullip Dal as well. Have a wonderful day all you amazing fellow doll collectors! (๑╹ڡ╹)╭ ~ ♡

‘Medusa’ Angela Hadrill

This piece was created in response to an amazing talk “Women in Power” by Mary Beard in which, among other things, she discusses the origins of the medusa myth and its depictions in modern design.
