"And now Holmes enters a catch-foot spin - look at the beautiful arch of his body."
"He skates every elegantly. He creates beautiful lines, beautiful forms in his positions and he has amazing flexibility."
"It’s quite stunning, to see such a tall skater make these splits and stretches. He knows how to work that to his advantage."
"The program he’s chosen highlights that skill of his, and he’s hoping it’s going to translate to nice big GOEs for him; he’ll be banking on that as he saves his harder jumps, those triple-jump combos, for the long program. But skating so beautifully - making these lines and being so aware of the body is something that dancers know how to do, and Holmes certainly becomes one on the ice."
I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
