August 2021~ Getting Geeked Out with Dal Empty August 2021~ Getting Geeked Out with Dal

Post  dargosmydaddy Sun Aug 01, 2021 10:24 pm

Merriam Webster defines "geeked" as "filled with excitement or enthusiasm." I think the word tends to have a negative or nerdy connotation at times, but we are going to change all that this month by celebrating everything that fills you and your Dals with excitement and enthusiasm! Hopefully we are all geeked to be spending time with our dolls as we take the pictures, too.

I've listed sixteen themes below. You can post pictures for whichever themes float your boat, and you can post up to two pictures per theme (though please come up with a different scene/ interpretation for each photo). At least one Dal must appear in each picture, but I'd love to see some other dolls in there, too! And there will definitely be prizes (which I will post about once I figure out what they are...).

****Geeked Out Themes!****

1) Geeked out for books
2) Geeked out for a favorite non-dolly hobby
3) Geeked out for a favorite holiday
4) Geeked out for art
5) Geeked out for movies
6) Geeked out for TV shows
7) Geeked out for sports
8 ) Geeked out for anime
9) Geeked out for cosplay
10) Geeked out for history
11) Geeked out for science
12) Geeked out for crafts
13) Geeked out for travelling
14) Geeked out for wildlife
15) Geeked out for activism
16) Geeked out for _______ (fill in the blank with whatever you want)

Feel free to interpret the themes as you wish. For example, for the first theme you could show a Dal enjoying books in general, or posing with a favorite book, or on a recreated cover for a favorite book, or acting out a scene from a favorite book... whatever you want! Have fun!

That's a lot of ideas! I'm writing them down to stick on the fridge at the beginning of the month this time, in hopes I'll get started on some a little earlier than last month.

(I don't get the chickens...? Question )

(I don't get the chickens...?)

https://www.ripleys.com/weird-news/freaks-and-geeks/

In the early 20th century, “geeks” were circus “freaks” whose specialty was biting off the heads of animals, typically chickens, snakes or rats, and drinking their blood. The feats frequently caused broken teeth and jaws, and the constant interaction with animals meant that geeks often suffered from animal-related sicknesses.

Sunny is geeked out about wildlife! It took a surprisingly short amount of time for a butterfly to join us for our shoot.

That's too bad about the doll meet. I agree with consoling oneself with cake.
These are all good themes.... I'm bummed that I haven't managed to do more.

Cake makes up for everything! Is that a custom mini Dal? She's adorable!

Skateboarding, biking, and tennis! That could make for an interesting day Smile

And she loves this cabinet, but Penny thought the nautical shelf would have more mermaids.


2) Geeked out for a favorite non-dolly hobby

Following on from Red's visit, today we found a female squash flower, so we stuck some pollen in it.

(It's OK if you don't want to count this one as it's a double-dip from Red's adventures.  I just wanted to do some more of the prompts because they were good ideas.)

I love all the adventures your dolls get up to, Alliecat!

Truefan and Alliecat, thank you both for participating. Prizes have been ordered and will be on their way to you as soon as they arrive. (I think I have both your addresses, assuming they're the same as last year?)
