OSS # 127: Name-calling

It's the love month! I wanted to start it with not hating. :)

This is a sort of a personal reaction to Does 'No Name-Calling Week' Include Christians?, an article written by Linda Harvey regarding a program called No Name-Calling Week.

No Name-Calling Week (January 26-30, 2009) is an annual week of educational activities aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds and providing schools with the tools and inspiration to launch an on-going dialogue about ways to eliminate bullying in their communities. I learned of such from Aldrin's blog.

Moving on...

My Filipina version of Barbie, Juana, had a make-over. I repainted her face to make her look a little modest. I think it suits her with the terno.

The terno was made from the same material as Ning Fa's cheongsam.

Ang amo ng fez ni Juana, napaka-hinhin ng dating.

Ang ganda ng terno, pang Miss Universe. Hehehe =)

Name calling ang sterotyping? So much we have to do in unlearning these stuff.

Bakit Juana ang name nya?

I erased and re-draw her face around 3 times. Nahirapan ako sa eyelashes. Minsan kasi napapalaki at nagiging messy tapos mukha na syang pupunta ng club.

I want to use all the alphabet in naming my dolls. So I limit myself to the letter J for this one. I also wanted the name to sound Christianized Filipino since she looks mixed race. With those limitaions Juana was the only name that came to mind.
