    She needs that mirror like a hole in the head.

  2. Adam Roberts Says:

    Another proposed design for the new Scottish national flag, now sadly unneeded after the referendum result.

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    The reason the mirror is held the wrong way around is because, as a Flump, all of her hair is in her eyes.

    So, if a sex doll is an inanimate object that you have sex with, a destiny doll is an inanimate object you meet your destiny with? Ominous…

    First time in paperback! And hopefully the last!

    @DSWBT – if your destiny is to have sex with a doll then a sex doll is a destiny doll and vice versa…

    “You know going by the hair… I don’t need to see the face. Next Destiny Doll please!”

    @SI — Going by the hair, it appears our doll is holding the mirror up to the back of her head. We’ve found a mate for this guy:

    No, at the bottom of the mirror you can see just the edges of her jaw line — which implies are really weird hair line! Not to mention (but I will) you are seeing her clavicles, not her scapulae.

    Altogether now:

  13. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    If you look closely enough, you’ll see a face in the clouds within the mirror.

  14. Adam Smith Says:

    Classic haunting image that would have seriously disturbed me if I’d seen it as a child. This would be a natural stock image for mens rights activists to use in a youtube vid about feminine duplicity or some other hoo ha.

  15. Tom Noir Says:

    My parents got me a Destiny Doll for Christmas one year, but I really wanted a Teddy Ruxpin.
