Felicity’s Double Waterfall Braid Hairstyle – By IrishAG

Hello readers!

Today I’ll be showing you how to do Felicity’s hairstyle from https://irishagdolls.wordpress.com/2016/05/19/sisters-and-surprises-a-photostory-by-irishag/   .  All you need is:

  • a squirt bottle full of water
  • a doll hairbrush
  • a ponytail holder

1. As usual, brush and mist your doll’s hair until it’s smooth.  Then take two small sections from high on the right side of your doll’s head.  Twist them together once.

2. Then, take a small section of hair from above the twist and lay it between the twisted sections.

3. Twist the sections over each other again, securing the small section.  Twist again.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 twice more, then tie the braid off with the ponytail holder.

5. Now take two small sections from below the braid.  Twist them together, and do the same braid as you did before, only this time, use the small sections that are through the first braid instead of using new ones.

6. Tie off the two braids with the ponytail holder, and repeat the braids on the left side of your doll’s head.

You’re done!  This braid is fabulous for formal or casual affairs.  She really looks like Tauriel!  🙂  Which doll do you think would look best in this braid?

Lea Movie Premiere Review – By IrishAG

Hello!

On Friday, Mom, Gymnast03, Curiousgeorgefan and I went to American Girl Place Chicago for the Lea movie premiere!  It was so fun!

The movie is called Lea to the Rescue.  Maggie Elizabeth Jones plays Lea Clark, and she is really cute.  The movie is set after the book series, which I love.  Zac is still in Brazil, and is missing.  Lea and her Mom go to Brazil to help look for him.  Can Lea save the day and find Zac?

I really enjoyed the movie.  From the preview, I thought Lea would be totally whiny.  Not so!  And the sloth……….. adorableness!  😀  My Mom liked the movie as well.  It was pretty much nonstop intensity, but it was well acted.  Really little kids might be disturbed by it, but it all ends okay.  🙂

I think it was $10 a person, and that included the movie, popcorn, a Capri Sun or water bottle, a goody bag, crafts and photo ops!  That’s a really good deal for AG.  We checked in at the AG store in Chicago and got our goody bags and wristbands, then walked a block down to the Museum of Contemporary Art for the movie, crafts, concessions and photo ops.  It was crowded, I think it was sold out!

Here’s a picture of Addy waiting for the movie to start in the theatre!  She and I both wore black and white dresses, and Tauriel braids in our hair.

Now I’ll review the goody bag!  It says American Girl on it.  Inside, there’s a Lea movie poster, girl and doll passports and doll-sized pineapple juice and popcorn.  I was most excited about the doll food.

So there you go!  Also, AG released the Wellie Wishers and some new doll stuff today!  Go check it out on their website.  🙂  My favorite Wellie Wisher is Willa.  Willa the Wellie Wisher!  🙂

Have you seen the Lea movie?  If so, what did you think of it?
