teasing out the dolls....
its one of those q's i always get asked by emails, well except for my name, address, phone number and a picture....:P is where are the potential dolls are?
my big idea on the subject is that its all like trying a new food you've never had before: most people will stick to mcdonalds or some big chain and not really seek out anything new. or even have a palette for it if they found it.
and once you've found it and you try it you may like it alot. love it even. or totally hate like i hate parsnips.
so thats an idea.
then you need to figure out how to get the more adventurous people to try it and have an attraction to come back too it.
so one guy whose very friendly and regular with emails was specifically making these comments about this and lack of any latex scene in vancouver. my suggestion is start one!!
or maybe smaller by buying in a crate of long black latex gloves from Denbar rubber (or some such) and see if you can sell them to local clothing shops or goth boutiques.
maybe even set up a basic online shop and flyer it to death anywhere and everywhere.
then people will start coming to you.
now if your some dotcom multi-millionaire into all of this and have a budget, then sponoring a certian blogger with latex would be good.... ;-) or english translation of the tiawanese book and get it into borders etc.
but more seriously, get a load of zentai suits and find the local theatre types etc to do something doll-ish with them. or ideas along those lines. maybe a fetish ritual designed as competition? instead of touch the car, then wear the zentai suit... halloweens far enough away to start planning some event thats doll based.... get your thinking hats on people!!!
'cos i don't have all the answers and i'm not going to do all the work for you....
