    Her eye (the white one) is the pinhole. The paper will be in her head. Yes, the top of her head comes off. She's going to be my spy camera. Who would suspect that a doll would be a pinhole camera?

    At least no one will bother you while you are taking the picture...

    Everytime I show up with my 4x5 pinhole on a tripod, the cops show up. Maybe I just have angry eyebrows...

    Pfah. I take my other dolliehs to work with me daily. No one really bothers me about it...unless it's to see if the boy dolliehs really ARE anatomically correct. (They are.)

    Yes, I have always been this demented. And I just did order the body to go along with the rest of her...poor kid. She's been a floating head for so long now she's not going to know how to act. :blink: Ha ha ha ha ha! I'm pretty anxious to start using her as a camera, too. I have to do a bit of surgery on the head cap, though...like cutting away some of the excess vinyl and adding magnets with Apoxy Sculpt. That way I can get in and out of her head more easily and with less of a fight. :D

    Hopefully not...and if I'm lucky, people will be freaked out by that 'blind eye' of hers.

    I think the cops will still come. They will just be dressed in white coats.

    Your dolly takes pix, mine is one of my favorite models, though I can't see gouging his eye out so he can be a camera.

    The eye is the window to the hole?

    Red sunglasses to increase contrast?

    Yes, let's see some results soon...

    Haha this is awesome! You definitively will look a little odd carrying the doll around. Haha but at least they wont know your taking pics. Covert style.

    So does it take 35mm film? Turning the head 360 degrees until green pea soup comes out the mouth advances the film.
