The 90’s weren’t just about awesome music fads. There were also some pretty incredible toys, like Trolls. (I realize that these things were originally made decades ago, but they definitely had a recycled spotlight in the 90’s.) I collected them as a kid, and had a great time rubbing their rhinestone bellybuttons to make wishes.
I decided to dress up as one, once I found this excellent wig online. I had done it once for a work Halloween party, but without a wig. (If you need to do a makeshift version of this, shoving an empty water bottle into your pony tail will work just fine.)
The only other things I wore were pink booty shorts, a tank top that matched my skin as best I could find, and a pink heart I cut out that I stuck over my belly button.
I danced around. In the street, while walking, and with strangers as they walked by.
Where do trolls hang out? Under bridges. But I’m a nice troll, so I decided to hang out on a bridge. In Baltimore. With my friend, April.
I told everyone they could pass, but sometimes I asked questions before I let them. Like “What’s the password?” “What is your quest?”, & “What is your favorite color?” People were good sports in general.
Most people just stared at me, though. I don’t necessarily blame them.
It’s not every day that you see a live troll doll. You can check out a little video footage, too!
All photos were taken by April’s Twisted Entertainment.

Hahaha, I love the end of the video. ♥ MARY this is hilarious, oh my goodness, you are awesome.
Right? I had no idea April shoved her face into the camera. She’s adorable. I’m glad you liked it!!
You are very brave!
BTW it got me thinking of:
“You gotta pay the troll toll if you want to get into that boy’s soul.”
“I feel like you’re saying ‘boy’s hole'”
Oh, man. I was singing that the whole time!! I originally used that as the audio for the video, but it was short and all the talking was distracting. But yes, everyone should watch this if they haven’t already.
I think you’re probably the best person ever created.
That first picture is actually the best picture of all time, if there was any doubt.
I don’t intend on arguing.
Hahahaha this is the bestest ever! I love you, you adorable trollie creature you! xoxoxox
Hahah, I love you, too!
This is probably my favorite ridiculous things you’ve ever done. I wish I would have been around there that day.
Hahah GOOD. I wish you were there, too!
You are hilarious and amazing. This is so great!
Thanks so much for coming by and commenting, Tricia!
