Clever Crinklers needed for help with Diaper Reviews!

Hey there crinkly friends! There’s a whole new world of diapers out since I last did a review, and I need your help working out my review system.

I’ve worked it down to 5 different aspects to individually cover and then come to a final 5 star score. I want my videos to tell you everything you need to know about a diaper, so the ratings etc. are more to highlight or point out failings of products. I’d like less to talk about my personal opinion, but rather to provide some info and let you decide. But first, I’d love some feedback on this ranking as I begin the effort to REVIEW EVERY DIAPER EVER!

You can see a rough draft of this format in my older review of Goodnites Tru-Fit ( ) including a look at what the scoring system could look like. ( )

Here’s what I’m thinking for the criteria ~

Absorbency – A technical analysis of how much it holds and how well it wicks to prevent leaks. Get out that blue liquid for a visual example and share the specs for how many oz/ml it holds. Depend Sillouttes would score low, where Wellness Briefs would score high.

Quality – The durability and craftsmanship of the materials. Do the tapes pop off? Is the inside scratchy? Does the back rip when you bend over? How are the leg gathers and the packaging? Low scores for diapers that fall apart, high scores for sturdy tapes and things like Aloe or landing strips. Depends score low, those UK Tena Slip Maxis score high.

Wearability (or “Comfort”, thoughts?) – How well something wears in diverse situations, under clothes, hot weather, durability, how it holds up while walking, breath ability, even things like PH balancing/smell issues. This is a tricky one and why I don’t intend for the final score to be cumulative, as some diapers aren’t intended to be worn outside and that shouldn’t count against them. This is a way to let people know how versatile a diaper is and compliment things like cloth covers, thin profiles, extra strong tapes or belt designs, how easy it is to change in public etc. It feels a little redundant with Quality, but I think it’s worthy of its own category, as that information is oft requested. Northshore Air Supreme would get high marks, something like the DC Amors would score low.

Value – This is where we talk about price in relation to the other categories asking “is it worth it?”. ATN’s would score high, where the super-expensive diapers can be judged by unique selling points such as baby-scent or special designs or extreme absorbency. Some of those 4$ a piece diapers can be worth it, if they are durable and hold a ton or target a specific audience.

AB/DL Appeal – How well they fit into the myriad of interests in the AB/DL world. Focus on designs, cuteness and color, how loud they are, how much they swell, basically how many boxes does it tick off of the “perfect ABDL diaper” fantasy list. Huge points for fancy ABDL diapers.

I hope to spend around a minute on each category, setting videos at a comfortable7-8 minutes with intro/outro and a final score. Again, the final score is pretty subjective and independent of the other score, I kinda question even having one, but It’ll likely be an efficient way to just summarize my points.  I also plan on shooting separate 60-Second reviews for people who need to know what diaper to wear ASAP, so the final score could be valuable there.

Let me know what you think! Is this too verbose/complicated? Is there something I’ve completely forgotten about, or something specific you’re always curious about with new diapers? I want to build a visual diaper archive and hope it could be a valuable resource for both ABDL and others for picking out the right product, so let’s brainstorm! I’d like to be confident in the format before I venture forward with the stacks and stacks of crinkles I have ready to review.

I plan to get feedback from the community about individual products as well, as there may be a common issue that I may miss in my review, or to learn about how they hold up in sizes I don’t wear. I also understand subtitles on videos are important, any other accessibility options that you can think of?

Thanks for reading, feel free to be critical and brutally honest, I really appreciate the help ❤

Bunny in a bear suit!

Hey there friends I have been super busy with work and life, I’m working on a new video and I absolutely haven’t forgotten about posting, just a bit of a dry well at this moment creatively. Focusing on life stuff right now and feeling really good, still beiny a good girl 🙂

I’m here because I’ve got a very cute picture of my bunny and I promised my little floppy eared friend that I would post it. I picked them up a very cute little bear sleeper so they could dress like the other bears. It was a rousing success and the bunny was very happy.

I also just installed WordPress on my phone so I can post a lot easier.

There’s been a little sudden sadness in my life but I’m dealing with it very well, treating myself with love and not letting things get me down. Thanks for reading and more stuff soon if you have a bunny give them a big hug for me 🙂

Writers Bloc

Hey there friends! I’ve been a busy baby, traveling around PA, taking care of the little bears, fun and work and very little drama. Life is good, but I’ve been having trouble finding things to write about. So for today, I’ll just share some cuddle pics and leave it at that ❤

Little bear loves pop-up books.
Loving my babyblocks diapers 😉
Wearing diapers in the dressing room 😛
I was pretty soggy that day
New clothes after a long crinkly day, what I really need is a new diaper 😛
And finally, little bear dressup 😛

More video and all that good stuff soon! Keep checking my @RileyBBQ twitter, have been sharing lots of cute pics on there!


What a couple busy bear weeks! I popped out to NJ for a couple days, avoided the rainstorms and lightning, though the bears missed me! I’m back and Cincy is sitting on my lap while I write this 😛

I watched Darren Aronfosky’s new film, “mother!”, which was absolutely a mad cluster of terror and frustration at the world. I really appreciated the message and I’m a fan of directors like him, Lars Von Trier, Gaspar Noe etc, it was particularly tough to watch. I highly don’t recommend it unless you’re a fan of twisted, heartbreaking films. I’m not here to talk about that though, i’m here to talk about Tinkerbell!

I’ve been going through the series of Tinkerbell films and they are pretty darn cute. “The Great Fairy Rescue” is my favorite so far, and watching it made me break out the Tinkerbell goodnites again. These pictures aren’t recent, but they’re cute, so I’m sharing. I think the S-M goodnites are Elena of Avalor” and the XS are Little Mermaid, while the L-XL are still non-branded patterns, owls etc. I even have my new tinkerbell dress to wear this summer, very exciting 🙂

I started this post like, 2 weeks ago, and I’m just now finishing it. I had an incredibly productive week, but also some drama, computer issues, long days etc. I will fill you in with a bit of new video and some exciting new developments 🙂 More stuff soon!

Dreaming again

~Be warned ye land lubbers, kinda sad transition talk ahead~

I tried to make a video and take a bunch of photos last week, set it up like a real photoshoot… didn’t work out well, I have a long way to go before I’m taking really high quality photos again… and moreso, have to deal with some serious dysphoria stuff that comes from how I feel about my body at any one moment. I’ve always had issues with my self-image, issues with comparing myself to others and not feeling comfortable in my skin. Transitioning really helped but as I am now at the crux of starting my physical transition over, I really can’t stand how my body looks. I’m getting back towards that cute and soft person I was for a while. I’m feeling the effects of not being on hormones, and it’s painful.

I went to the doctor last Friday, got some tests, will likely get the prescription later this week then start physically transitioning again. Patches this time, so it’ll be a little different. I imagine the outcome will be different as well. I plan to talk more about this in videos, I see so many transpeople come out, then 2 years later they’ve had surgery etc. and that’s it. I suppose that could have happened to me as well, but they didn’t. I can’t be the only one. So I’d love to be able to talk to others about how you can start over and to put it in a weird sort of way, that failure is an option.

Despite what my aggressive inner monologue has to say, I’m not too old or too jaded and I haven’t ruined my chances to be pretty, happy, loved or successful. I haven’t said or done such mean things to myself that I can’t ever love me again.

I wrote all that then took a step away for a day or two. I need to sit down in front of a camera and lay all this out… but for now, I’ll just leave you with the positive thoughts that change is possible, and it’s never too late. Hugs, and here are some pics from that Dream day, some of my favorites ❤


I showed you one of my favorite videos, now for my favorite. Some emotional stuff ahead.

When I filmed this I was ostensibly homeless, house-sitting and sleeping on couches in SF. I was unfairly fired from my job (eventually won the Unemployment hearings, but life was rough for a while) and I was figuring out where to go and what to do as a young transgirl with dreams. Life was rough to me then, 2010, I was already an experienced sex worker and hustler in Sacramento. Things started to fall apart, I lost my beloved coffee shop job and a close friend died, issues with stalkers, vice, local thugs, basically too much heat in Sacramento so I set off to San Francisco. I had friends and contacts there as well as a stripping gig, though I didn’t have anything solid. SF is a good place to go if you’re living on the edge, but there’s also a culture around exploiting people like that, especially young, cute ones.

Life was continuing to harden me, adventure and drama was routine and exhausting. I dreamed to escape to a world of pastel and snuggles.

This is my dream.

I suppose life has never been that low, and I’m closer to my dream than I am to those old bus mall days. I took a bunch of cute pictures today, just to test out taking serious photos after a while. Made me feel optimistic about making new content for the site, making more videos for fun and for sale. Exciting stuff 🙂

Hope you like the video, it means a lot to me. ❤
