Hey Sunifred! I didn't know that member reg has been suspended here. Anyway, I think it's better than having spammers infiltrating us here I guess majority of new member registrations have been from those. I still hope you'd be able to enjoy scouring through the threads here.

Also thanks for that vk link! I have lost all the Romanov-related links I have compiled through the years!

I wonder if there will be new members here as this forum is a treasure trove of all things Romanov and even of other royal/imperial families. I also miss those old days, but not sure if they'd come back. I talked to many people through the years I was inactive here, and I haven't met anyone who has taken interest with Romanovs (here in my Asian country). They consider this as "niche". Ah great to see you all here who are familiar names. Wishing everyone a wonderful life despite things!

Thanks for the following links. If I have the proper internet connection, and when I am on a desktop, I'd surely dig through these links!

I really loved the one posted by GDSophie, where Olga sits like a boss. That's too refreshing to see! It's been a looooong time since I haven't dug through threads and all over the web for their photos. Thanks fellow members!

Oh so that's why my pics don't show up. I hope imgur. will not do the same.

This is SUCH an utterly beautiful image! SO of course the watermark runs right across her face.
Where did you get this photo from exactly?

Judicial Investigator (Ilya) :' )))  I'm sooo glad to see all those pics especially the very recent one because I love that informal sister photoshoot of them in Peterhof! <3 Thank you very, very much! Spasibo!

Ally, the author of that 1917 book you have is very truthful in describing Maria : )  I also am thinking the author said that because of Maria's Russian beauty. Tho' Olga to me also looks just as Russian, people then would be in consensus in saying she is the only Russian beauty among the sisters so for them she's the most beautiful. Thanks for posting that, too! It's awesome to know another person complimenting her at such awful times.

Thebelgianhare, good observation! I just noticed that after reading your post. It's also interesting to find out about their hair regimen (especially the shampoo,lol) They did have their hair done, too, so maybe that did something to make her hair look greater. But on bad hair days, yay, what's her secret? As you said, perhaps it's in her genes. I agree with what you said on Anastasia's hair (preferring the impish look) and the reason why her hair looked almost always unkempt in ordinary days. It suits her personality and adds to her comedienne side ;)

Maria Sisi, hahaha! I cannot say more! You excellently worded that!

This one took my breath away!
As always, a universally big thank you Ilya!! 

A Joyous 114th Birthday to the Graceful Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna - the only historical royal who oftentimes posed playfully in photographs! We will never stop adoring and loving her!
Before Prince Harry, there's Anastasia Nikolaevna the Imp!

Anastasia soooo beautiful. I feel sooo sad we didn't get to see more of her captivity photos (T_T)

I love you Ilya and Bryndis for the photos here :' )))

She's sooo beautiful and I see the ethereal-ness of her beauty there... Saying that,she and Tatiana look much alike in that photo (of course, they're siblings ; )

A Joyous 118th Anniversary of Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna's birthday!
The most gracious, the most elegant, the most imperial-looking but one whose reactions to some events surprise me - she is second to the imp in making incisive remarks,imo! xD 
Happy Birthday, Tatiana Nikolaevna!

Happy 143rd Birthday to Tsaritsa Aleksandra Feodorovna née Alix of Hesse-Darmstadt. Indeed, Tim, she is. A great friend and godmother, too.

I believe you get it right Kassy, but you are humble to admit it ; )
Include me to the ones who use Becker.
I use nicknames given by Alix to Alexei to refer to my babies -(stuffed toys). I call them Babykins, Sunbeam, Agooweeone.
