Historia de una muñeca rescatada / Story of a rescued doll Jan. 30th, 2016 @ 08:07 pm
yelinna
El sábado pasado fui a Criteria Collectibles para hacer más intercambio de juguetes. Sucede que Bruno tiene una caja en el suelo con los items sin valor de reventa, principalmente porque están rotos, muy usados o dañados. En esa caja estaba esta muñeca:

Last saturday I went to Critteria Collectibles to do more toy exchanges. It happens that Bruno has a box on the floor with the items with no re-sell value, mainly because they are broken, too used or damaged. In that box it was this doll:



Bruno insistió que me la llevara. Dudé porque estaba sucia, su cabello y su ropa estaban en muy malas condiciones y no me gustaba la pintura de su cara. Al final la puse en mi mochila. Cuando llegué a casa, la lavé, corté su cabello y le probé diferente ropa, nada me convenció, entonces la puse dentro de la bolsa de las donaciones que tenemos en casa y me olvidé de ella.
Entonces cogí un resfriado el Domingo que duró hasta el Lunes. No pude hacer nada excepto yacer en cama sintiéndome enferma y...
... pensando acerca de la condenada muñeca Britney.
No podía sacarla de mi mente, era como si me estuviera suplicando que le diera una oportunidad. De modo que al día siguiente la saqué de la bolsa e hice un último intento.

Esta vez las cosas fueron distintas. Le dí un lindo vestido, un lazo en su cabeza, una cadena en su cuello... bueno, éste es el resultado:


Bruno insisted to take her with me. I doubted because she was dirty, her hair and her clothes were in pretty bad condition and I didn't like her face painting. At the end I put her inside my backpack. When I arrived to home, I washed her, cut her hair and tried different outfits on her, nothing convinced me, so I put her inside the donations' bag we have at home and forget her.
Then I got a cold on Sunday that lasted until Monday. I could do nothing but laying on my bed feeling sick and...
... thinking about the damn Britney doll.
I couldn't take her out of my mind, it were as if she were begging me to give her a chance. So the next day I took her out of the bag and made a last try.

This time things went different. I give her a pretty dress, a bow on her head, a chain on her neck... well... this is the result:



¡¡¡¡ASASFASDDAFR!FTY!G!!!!! ¡¡¡¡Ella es increíble!!!11!
ASASFASDDAFR!FTY!G!!!!! SHE IS AMAZING!!!11!

Just look at her adorable creepy insane murdering face:

Esta señorita es una Diva de Película de Horror :D :D :D

Ella necesitaba un hacha.
She needed an axe.

Como ya no me quedan hachas tamaño Barbie, le hice una con un palito de plástico, papel y las envolturas de mis pastillas (he estado enferma ¿recuerdan?):

As long as I didn't have any more Barbie-sized axes, I made her one with a plastic stick, paper and the wrapping paper of my pills (I was sick, remember?):

Altitud: 4000 msnm
Lugar: Región Lima, provincia de Huarochirí
Este lugar debería ser frío, pero debido a El Niño, está más cálido que lo normal, y a pesar de que es la temporada de lluvias, no está lloviendo!

Altitude: 4000 masl
Place: Lima Region, Huarochrí province
This place should be cold, but because El Niño, it is warmer than normal, and despite this is the rainy season, it is not raining!



Fui con mis amigos Bruno y Juanito. Las siguientes fotos fueron tomadas durante el paseo el 2 de Enero (el campamento base estaba donde tomé la primera foto con los caballitos de juguete):

I went with my friends Bruno and Juanito. Following photos were taken during the walk at January 2nd (base camp was where I took the photos with the toy horses):



Estas fotos muestran el mal terreno que tuvimos que cruzar ese día. SIn práctica, zapatos apropiados y palos de trekkins, esto puede llegar a ser bastante peligroso:

These photos show the bad terrain we had to cross that day. With no practice, proper shoes and trekking poles, this can become quite dangerous:



El terreno está al centro de esta foto, se ve casi vertical:
The terrain is at the center of this photo, it looks almost vertical:



La tierra se puede ver verde, pero las plantas son muy pequeñas para ser comidas por las vacas. Es posible que estén muriendo porque vimos algunos cóndores el día anterior. Por otro lado, después de tres horas caminando y descendiendo 1000 metros, llegamos a San Mateo de Huanchor, donde los animales (caballos y burros) se veían sanos y bien alimentados!

... esto es debido al cambio climático. Falta de lluvia, clima más cálido... me han dicho que el glaciar del San Andrés ha desaparecido y que no hay más nieve en Ticlio!!

Ground can look green, but the plants are too small to be eaten by cows. It is possible they are dying because we saw some condors the day before. O the other hand, after three hours walking and descending 1000 meters, we arrived to San Mateo de Huanchor, where animals (horses and donkeys) looked healthy and well feeded!

... it is because climate change. Lack of rain, warmer wheather... I'm told the San Andrrés Glacier has dissapeared and there are no more snow in Ticlio!!

Los Abuelos de La Nada - Te quiero Así

Fui a las puertas del Edén
y encontré todo muy bien,
fui a la casa del prelado
lo sentí muy preocupado.

Llegué a la casa de un artista,
lo encontré corto de vista,
pasé por lo del doctor
nunca vi tanto dolor.

Te quiero así,
me gustas viva,
yo no pedí nacer así,
son cosas mías.

Y a la hora de partir,
cuando atravesé la esquina
no necesite dar vueltas
venía la policía.

Y me llevaron a un cuartel
sucio de gris agonía,
yo les vendí mi inocencia
a un precio que no entendían.

En esta zona no hay luz
y aunque usted no lo distinga,
hay un muerto en el ropero
y otros dos en la piscina.


Esta vida gira así,
sin cabezas por la vida,
pocos juegan lo que tienen
y envidian lo que imaginan.



Los Abuelos de La Nada - I Like You This Way

I went to Eden's doors
and I found everything pretty well,
I went to the prelate's house
and I found him very worry.

I arrived to an artist's house,
I found him with poor vision,
I passed by the doctor's place
I never saw so much pain.

I like you this way,
I like you alive,
I dind't ask to get born this way,
this is my stuff.


At the time to leave,
when I crossed the corner
I didn't need to make turns
police were coming.

And they took me to a quarter
filthy of grey agony,
I sold them my innocence
at a price they didn't understand.

In this zone there's no more light
and despite you don't notice it,
there's a corpse in the closet
and two more in the pool.


This life turns this way,
headless throught life,
few bet what they have
and envy what they imagine.




Sip, la canción favorita de Jackson :D
Yep, Jackson's favorite song :D

The Classroom Jul. 27th, 2015 @ 09:55 pm

I have a problem with the Monster High playsets: they are too expensive (specially compared with the overall quality). And I am not the only one that thinks this way: youtube has tons of videos about making your own room/bed/kitchen/playset, even an entire house. The most used materials: wood, cardboard and fabric. Also they use generic Barbie-like furniture. As a result you get a decent playset for a fraction of the price.

Alright, I admit I bought one playset, a really cheap one (less than $10): The Monstrous Locker, but it doesn't appear in these photos ;)


(come on, 10 bucks for 3 empty plastic boxes that are more than 20 cm tall, with tiny drawers, and two toy locks with a total of four keys is a pretty good price).

The point is that I wanted to take the idea of "Making your own Doll Playset out of Cheap Materials" to ITS EXTREEEMEE!!!!

This is the challenge:
1. Use only stuff you already have.
2. Use materials that were discarded or meant to be discarded, in other words: TRASH, Baby!
3. Bonus points if you take the materials from the trash bin.
4. Extra Bonus if you take the materials from the landfill :D

Alright...
After gathering forgotten/unwanted stuff and trash from my house and workplace, this is my masterpiece:


Jem Halo Jones is the teacher (psss, Billy, the answer is y=e^x). The wall is a wooden board I found gathering dust and cobwebs behing a shelf.

I reuse some materials from the Cafeteria of Doom (in fact, I reuse some materials for making the Cafeteria of Doom, because I made this classroom first, the Cafeteria is the second one).
The student's backpacks are purses.

Now, a few close-ups:

These are the Visible Man surviving pieces on a 1994 Color FX Hotwheels playset. My cousins played with it until the cars lost their color changing paint and ended in very bad condition, and the brushes disintegrated. But the playset itself were almost as new:

In the Cafeteria of Doom, the plastic vases under the CDs are the green and purple vases of this playset. The fluorescent starters are the same shown in the Cafeteria. Teacher Halo Jones is holding a skeleton keychain. This Hot Wheels playset is placed on the same cassette boxes used in the Cafeteria.

The classroom desks were made with a couple of Polly Pocket Designables put upside down. In these playsets, the background walls are made of cardbard, I simply took them off:

These Designables can also be used as doll's shelves, put together as a table (better results if they are covered with fabric) or they can be customized and turned into a kitchen.

The seats are bent pvc cards, the same that are shown in the Cafeteria of Doom:


Here is another angle:
