All Dolled Up: Meet Ypsilanti's Alex Tinsley 

Alex Tinsley resides in Ypsilanti, where she maintains her fair complexion by working on patterns for her knitting website dull-roar.com and, less frequently, writing for her fashion and lifestyle blog, bombasine.com. Tinsley says she dabbles in the dark arts — fortune telling, tarot cards, crystals, and the like — although she confesses that she "doesn't actually believe a whiff of it." Of her style, she cites Marceline the Vampire Queen as her fashion icon, and adds "it's midnight somewhere."
