DOLLS IN THE HOUSE

DOLLY IS A FREAK SINCE SHE WAS A CHILD. SHE WAS NEVER KEEN ON BEING IN A CROWD, SHE ALWAYS CELEBRATED LONELYNESS. NOT BECAUSE SHE HATED THE OTHERS, BUT SHE WAS ALWAYS TOO BUSY WITH HER OWN TRAIN OF THOUGHTS.  THE VISIONS OF OTHERS SEEMED TO HER LIKE A LONG CHEWED BUBBLE GUM THAT ONLY PASSED ITS CHANCE TO GET SPITTED OUT.

 

THE SCENARY SHE HAS BEEN GROWING UP WAS NOT DECORATED BY EICHE-RUSTIKAL-WALL-UNIT AND AN IN APRON-COOKING-MOM. AND SO WAS NEVER THE SCENARY IN HER DOLL HOUSE. IT WAS LIKE A COOL YOUNG WOMAN LIVES BY HER SELF IN A HOUSE ABOVE AND THE FIRST FLOOR WAS HER WORKING STATION. THE DOLL HOUSE WAS THE PLACE TO MAKE HER DREAM OF LIVING COME REAL. IT WAS NEVER ABOUT PLAYING WITH IT. IT WAS MORE MAKING THE SETTING. HOURS BY HOURS SHE TINKERED THE DECO OR THE SHOP ARTICELS LIKE LITTLE BOXES OF MEDICINE FOR THE DRUGSTORE, MINISKIRTS FOR THE BOUTIQUE OR TINY AUTOGRAPH CARDS FOR THE NENA FANCLUB.

 

MOSTLY KIDS CRY AND SCREAM WHEN THEY HAD THEIR FIRST DAY IN KINDERGARDEN. THE MOOD OF BEING IN A FOREIGN PLACE AND GET ALONG WITH THE BIG UNKNOWN WITHOUT PERMANENT FAMILY SHELTER SCARES THEM. NOT DOLLY. WHEN SHE ARRIVED HER FIRST SIGHT CAUGHT A DOLL HOUSE IN THE CORNER AND FROM THAT ON SHE KNEW SHE FOUND A FRIEND AND THERE WAS NO REASON TO BE AFRAID. SHE LET LOOSE HER MOM´S HAND AND TOLD HER SHE CAN LEAVE NOW.

LITTLE BY LITTLE SOME FURNITURE OF THAT KINDERGARDEN´S DOLL HOUSE VANISHED AND FOUND THEIR NEW PLACE IN A SHELF OF DOLLY´S CHILDREN ROOM. SHE WAS NOT STEALING. SHE WAS RESCUEING THE LOVELY MINIATURE PARTS FROM THE OTHER CHILDREN WHO SEEMED NOT TO APPRECIATE THEM IN THAT WAY THEY DESERVED IT. DOLLY FELT LIKE SHE´S WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN PRESERVE THE TREASURE. SHE WAS JUST A BURSAR.

 

AND AT AGE SIX THE SHE GOT HER OWN LITTLE DOLL HOUSE AND FROM THAT ON HER LIFE CHANGED. CREATIVITY BEGAN RULING! DOLLY STARTED ABUSING THINGS FOR HER LITTLE HOME: HER BROTHER´S LEGO BRICKS FOR MAKING TABLES AND CHAIRS, TEA-CLOTHS ENDED UP IN  CARPETS AND THE SCHOOL MATH NOTEBOOK WAS MORE AN IDEA COLLECTOR FOR HOUSE LAYOUTS THAN ARITHMETIC PROBLEMS. THERE WERE OTHER RIDDLES TO BE SOLVED! DOLLY MADE HER OWN PUPPETS, BECAUSE THE PUPPETS YOU CAN USUALLY BUY WHERE UGLY AND BORING AND WERE NOT PERFORMING HERSELF. DOLLY BECAME INTERESTED IN HANDCRAFT, DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE. SHE FELT SO POWERFUL WITHIN TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SOMETHING REAL WHAT WAS JUST CAPTURED IN YOUR MIND. IT FELT LIKE GIVING BIRTH.

 

AND IT FELT LIKE DEATH WHEN YEARS LATER DOLLY CAME HOME FROM SCHOOL AND HAD TO REALISE THAT BIG HOLE IN HER CHILDREN ROOM. HER MOM DECIDED TO THROW THE DOLL HOUSE IN THE GARBAGE CAN, BECAUSE DOLLY SEEMED TOO OLD TO PLAY WITH IT. AT AGE 11.

BUT DOLLY DIDN´T STOP PLAYING! WHEN DOLLY GREW UP SHE STARTED TO CREATE WITH BARBIE DOLLS, BECAUSE HER VISIONS GETTING BIGGER AND MORE DETAILED. WHEN SHE MOVED FROM PARENT´S HOME AND EARNED HER OWN MONEY SHE BOUGHT A FOUR-ROOM-HOUSE FOR HER BARBIES. BUT THAT WAS NOT BIG ENOUGH. SO SHE PURCHASED BY AUCTION A THREE-FLOOR-HOUSE. BUT THAT WAS NOT BIG ENOUGH. SO SHE HIRED A CARPENTER AND PAID HIM TO MAKE IT BIGGER. AT AGE 45. 

DOLLY IS A FREAK. SHE EVER WAS AND EVER WILL BE. TO BE A FREAK MEANS TO BE FREE. ESPECIALLY FROM OTHER´S OPINION.

FOR YOU IT´S FASHION - FOR ME IT´S PASSION

LONG TIME DOLLY WAS NOT REALLY INTERESTED IN STYLE AND FASHION. UNTIL THAT MOMENT SHE DISCOVERD ABBA.

 

SHE WAS SIX AND ON THAT SUNDAY MORNING SHE HAD TO GET PREPARED TO GO TO CHURCH.

IT WAS A SLOW FITTING BECAUSE HER BELLY WAS SICK. HER MUM DID NOT BELIEVE AND WAS THINKING LITTLE DOLLY JUST WANTED TO WATCH THE FOUR SWEDISH POPPIES ON TV. ANYHOW MOM´S WILL WON AND DOLLY FOUND HERSELF LISTENING TO BORING PRAYERS´ SONGS INSTEAD OF FANCY SWEET MELODIC TUNES PERFORMED BY BEAUTIFUL GIRLS WITH GLITTER COSTUMES AND COLOURFUL EYE SHADOW. GOD IS NOT DISCO. SO SHE STARTED TO KOTZEN.

 

DOLLY´S MOM NEVER FORCED HER TO GO PREACHING ANYMORE, SHE ACCEPTED THAT DOLLY HAS OTHER TALENTS. LITTLE DOLLY BEGAN TO CREATE HER OWN FASHION STYLE. SHE BEGAN TO CROCHET GALA DRESSES FOR TEDDIES AND MONCHICHIS. BECOMING A TEENAGER HER CLAIMS ARE GETTING MORE SOPHISTICATED. OTHER GIRLS READ „BRAVO GIRL“ AND „MÄDCHEN“ , DOLLY STUDIED HER „HARPER´S BAZAAR“ MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION THAT SHE WAS GETTING TO BIRTHDAY. SHE ABUSED HER BARBIES FOR WEARING HER SELFMADE CLOTHS THAT WERE INFLUENCED BY YSL AND GAULTIER. OTHER GIRLS WORE PRISSY NECKERMANN, DOLLY SEARCHED IN 2ND HAND STORES FOR PIECES THAT MADE HER LOOK LIKE MADONNA AND STYLED HER HAIR LIKE DEBBIE HARRY. DOLLY WAS THE FIRST GIRL IN SCHOOL THAT WORE MINI SKIRTS, BOOTS WITH HIGHER HEELS, RIVET BELTS AND BANDEAU. HER TEACHER TRIED TO TOLD HER THAT A HEADBAND WAS NOT GOOD BECAUSE IT NARROWS THE MIND. DOLLY ASK HER IF SHE THEN WEARING A LOT OF THOSE IN HER OWN YOUTH OR WHY SHE HAD SUCH A SMALL THINKING? THAT DAY DOLLY HAD TO SPEND THE REST OF THE LESSON OUTSIDE OF THE CLASS ROOM AND REALISED THAT SCHOOL WAS NOT THE PLACE TO BE.

 

MUSIC AND FASHION ALWAYS BELONGS TOGETHER. BOWIE WAS RIGHT WITH „SOUNDS & VISIONS“. WHEN DOLLY CREATES DIVINE TUSSI GALA SHE´S LISTENING TO MARIAH CAREY AND DORIS DAY. SHE NEEDS REBEL MOOD FOR GLITTER COMBAT GEAR SHE´S USING MUSIC FROM KATE BUSH OR ALIEN SEX FIEND. TO DESIGN SEXYCOOL STREET-RAGS SHE´S GETTING INSPIRED BY HIPHOP OR DIRTY GUITAR-BOOTY-ROCK. WHEN DOLLY HEARS A GOOD SONG – NO MATTER WHAT GENRE – SHE IMMEDIATELY HAS A OUTFIT ON HER MIND THAT COULD EXPRESS THE SOUND. NOT JUST THE OUTFIT BUT ALSO HOW TO PRESENT IT. SHE LOVES TO LOOK AT FANCY FASHION CAMPAIGN. OFTEN SHE BUYS A MAGAZINE JUST BECAUSE THERE IS ONE GOOD MADE CAMPAIGN OR ONE GOOD SHOT PHOTO. A PHOTO IS NOT JUST A PICTURE. IT´S A STATEMENT. IT COULD BE A MANIFESTO WITHOUT USING WORDS.

 

DOLLY IS NOT INTERESTED IN TRENDS. THAT TOOLS ARE FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN´T GOT A CLUE ABOUT THEIR OWN PERSONALITY AND SO THEY NEED TO GET DICTATED. DOLLY IS NOT BRAINWASHED BY LABELS OR COMMERCIAL  HIT LISTS. IT´S NOT A MATTER OF „IN AND OUT“. IT´S ABOUT „NOW OR NEVER“, „DO OR DIE“ AND „ME, MYSELF & I“. TO EXPRESS HER OWN IDEAS SHE JUST NEEDS HER HEART. AND THE KNOWLEGDE OF:
