Wedding felicitations!

Well, Barb and Kathy probably don’t know it, but their party on Saturday was not the only celebration held in honor of their recent union. Imagine my family’s surprise when we heard tiny, rowdy cries of “Mountain Dew for EVERYONE!” and “Here’s to the birds!” emanating from Doll Party Central and happened upon this festive little tableau:




(There were a number of Lord of the Rings dolls partying down as well, but they fled back to the safety of the cardboard castle when they saw the camera; they’ve been burned before.)


Buffy and Faith preside over the party from their perch on la Tour Eiffel . . .



There was a little confusion in the Summers-Pratt family as to whether Auntie Willow was supposed to bring cookies to the reception or cookie monsters. (There was also a little confusion in an eavesdropping SchoolHard!Spike’s mind as to exactly what he was overhearing!)

I'm sorry to say that things got a little ugly as the party wore on and the increasingly drunken guests began to eye the cookies in a manner that was less friendly and more hungry. Let's just say that Willow made it home with fewer tamed cookie monsters than she brought and leave it at that. :(


Illyria continues her cultural studies via lively banter with Anya (or “small leporine personage,” as she insists on addressing her), while AtS S5 Spike and Angel, blotto on otter blood, completely forget they’re supposed to pretend they’re not having a thing.


CONGRATULATIONS, BARB & KATHY!! KATHY & BARB!! Best wishes and many happy returns from a family of fans.

Cheers,

Sarah, Bob, and Miss Z.

THAT is just too awesome. I'm very impressed with bunny!Anya.

Aw, Hawaiian Shirt Angel can't keep people at arm's length when he's that way! It's probably the best thing that ever happened to his emotional issues. Just goes to show that every pairing has its moment--they all look so right together.

*raises my frosty beverage to Kathy & Barb!* :D:D:D

P.S. Tell Z the cookie monsters are very cool. Honestly, I thought they were done by a professional.

((dies laughing))

Once again, I bow to your doll greatness. Looks like it was a wild party, cookie monsters and all.

Heh-heh. Thank you, sweetie! This one was a family project, and we had a good time planning it out. Z. insisted on the cookie monsters, and since I'd had a beer at dinner and my resistance was down, I just watched her roll with it. ;)

I tell ya, that otter blood packs a punch. ;)

I always think that Anya and Illyria would have made a great team--they're both so blunt and literal.

Thank you! I'm glad that I had enough Spike dolls to go around. Now I just need to find a Xander . . .

Heee! Z. insisted upon their inclusion and was in charge of the Fisher-Price Summers-Pratt corner. (She was unhappy with the fact that Connie is bigger than Bill and that baby Alex only has one arm, but I finally convinced her to go with it.)

Hope y'all had big fun on Saturday. :D

I love that you have different fic-versions of our heroes represented. And that this confuses them!

Heee! Thank you, ma'am. It was fun to bounce them off of one another. Also, doing this photo shoot helped to validate my continued purchase of Spike dolls. ;)

The whole gang is celebrating! Even Lorne and Illyria and kids. A great party!

Congratulations to Barb and Kathy!

Thanks, dear. The dolls had a big time--I'll be finding confetti in my nightstand for weeks now! *lol* B. and I kept calling the Barbverse doll family the Fisher-Price-Summers-Pratt Family. :D

Thanks, honey. I had a good time planning this one but was running out of creative steam when it came time to stage it. Z's last-minute inspiration to add the cookie monsters and Fisher-Price-Summers-Pratt family was invaluable. *g*

Thanks, Kathleen! I'm running a little behind schedule, but I had a blast putting it together.

P.S. It's good to see you up and around again!

Thank you, sweetie! Everyone pitched in on this one, and we had a good time.

Hee! Poor Bunny Anya. I had hoped that her suit would fit other, larger dolls (i.e. Angel), but she's a teensy thing. I'm afraid that the bunny suit is allll hers now. ;)

*hugs* Happy almost-not-Monday.

Yes! Doll!fic! I love Bunny Anya and the cute little Spuffy family. Though I don't see why the cookies and the kids can't be snacks ;-)

Great Party! Look at AtS Angel's hand on Spike's butt- yeah! And Bunny!Anya - woot!

The only one I don't recognize is the giant baby one of the Buffy's is holding. Who is it?
mere_ubu
Oct. 30th, 2008 01:50 pm (UTC)
Heh-heh. I had so much fun posing Angel and Spike together. Can ya tell?

The Fisher-Price baby is so creepy! Plus he only has one arm. He's supposed to be Barbverse baby Alex from Attack of the Cookie Monsters, but it's kind of a stretch.

Are you guys all geared up for Halloween? And can it be over soon? Heh.

Hahahahaha. That is a world of awesome.

Illyria continues her cultural studies via lively banter with Anya (or “small leporine personage,” as she insists on addressing her), while AtS S5 Spike and Angel, blotto on otter blood, completely forget they’re supposed to pretend they’re not having a thing.

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Thank you, ma'am. I do so enjoy debauching the dolls. ;D
