I'm thoroughly thrilled to announce that the Doll Hospital shop is now live!
You can grab your print copy of the issue from this Saturday at 9am GMT time, though if you don't want to wait digital copies are out already!
In this issue, as well as y'kno the editor's letter and what not, I wrote an essay on suicidal ideation and digital culture, had some intense real talk with Eline and Ginger about the capitalist pitfalls of self care and the 'treat yo self' narrative, interviewed the author Kate Zambreno about the representations of women and mental health in writing, profiled the a+ art collective the Coven and spoke to the artist Angela Deane about ghosts, photography, grief and memory.
Here's a little video of me flicking through the first issue ^o^
....And some pretty pictures of the journals themselves
Opening them up was a scary situation to embark on alone so I hosted a little google hang out with Cassie, Ginger, Maggie and Cat, all a+ magical girls from the DH editorial team ❤ ❤
Pickle was there too!
And I dressed up because OF COURSE
This angle is super flattering is at allows me to flaunt my deformed spinal cord! Yay! And also owww!
I actually made this dress out of curtain fabric!!
LOOKING INTO THE DISTANCE OF DH'S GLITTERING FUTURE IN A GLITTERING CROWN!! YEAH!!!
p.s I know this blog has been quiet for a few weeks which I hate as blogging is my fave :( But I've been seriously snowed under with phd applications and dh stuff which, though awesome and important, is a huge time suck! But dw I will be back to regular blogging (and also catching up on all your lovely blogs!!) next week!
Hope you're all well!!!
