All My Toys: We're Back!

Dear Diary,

Do you smell that diary? It's fresh non-apocalyptic air! That's right! The world has returned to normal. We're back baby! Cities look the way they once were. I'm somehow living in my old apartment again. This makes sense of course considering Wayne Manor was destroyed this past winter. It's like the perfect do-over! I'm back and things are better than ever!

All My Toys: Road Trip!

Dear Diary,

I love Mad Max. Those movies are wonderful. And while there might be a bit of a tarnished image of the man behind three of Max's outings, I still love the idea of a mashup of vehicles just tearing up the ground as foes and heroes fight. It reminds me of what I would do as a kid. I loved nothing more than recreating my own Mad Max style chases. I am not usually one to embrace adrenaline and action being such a girly vision before you, but I secretly like it. I secretly enjoy the danger and drama on the open road. So as I ride around in this big old dump truck with She-Ra behind the wheel, I can't help but think of the times where I'd pretend to be in a chain metal dress in a desert with my toys all around. Anyways, I've got to go diary. My life depends on it.

For now,

Miss M

All My Toys: Wrap Up Already!

Dear Diary,

My journey is reaching an end. I am so very close to where I need to be. I don't know who will be meeting me at this looming castle on the horizon or who I will be talking to. The keys to my destiny are right at my finger tips! On a side note I am coughing up a bit of blood from my fight with my former lover turned psycho. Poor Bruce Wayne. Hopefully he'll realize the error of his ways. I can't fight him anymore. I just don't have it in me. Not anymore. Not after everything. I just want to find my place in the world. That's all.

All My Toys: Everything Changes

Dear Diary,

This new world is not what I was expecting. Mountains are no longer made of rock but instead consist of boxes housing old relics known as toys. There are no natural sights on the horizon, only a giant wall with toys I used to know frozen in time on cardboard. Where once was a blue sky is now just a spackle white with flecks of glitter that resemble stars. I'm scared I'll never see real stars again. Everything is so weird. I have to make it right. Even if the world hates me, I must make it right.

Quick Update!

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a quick update on some posts I have in the works for the Diary. As usual I am currently working on photos for the next piece for All My Toys. This story was supposed to have concluded and toy Miss M was already going to be on her way to living in her fabulous toy apartment in a fabulous toy world where her only way to regain respect from the toys around her would be to join the cast in the making of Jaws 5. A fifth Jaws film is the key to world peace. I'm just saying.

The other projects I'm writing involve a series of entries detailing very special conversations with Justine Dantzer. Justine has a long storied career in the toy industry. She is a toy designer, sculptor, inventor, and illustrator to name just a few of her many talents. The amount of toy lines she has worked on and even had a hand in creating is simply astonishing. I want to explain more but I have to contain myself and save it for these series of articles. Needless to say communicating with her has been a dream that I never even knew I could have come true.

So stick around folks! Diary of a Dorkette is certainly heating up for the summer! I hope you are all doing well!
