I’m on Instructables!

Hey guys!

8-30-16 013.JPG

Yep, as the title says, I’m on Instructables!  It’s a super cool website that shows you how to make things.  You can write your own Instructable, and enter it in contests to win sweet prizes!  I entered a cornrow hairstyle in the hair contest, if you’re on Instructables, I’d love a vote and/or comment!  Rebekah, you requested a tutorial so nicely, here’s the link and I’m so sorry it’s late! : http://www.instructables.com/id/Cornrow-Hairstyle/

I did tweak the hairstyle a bit, by making the braids have two levels and making them smaller, just FYI.

Here are some pics I took after making the tutorial.

Smooth floor…

8-30-16 016

You have to dance on smooth floors.  It’s not even a question.  🙂

Twirling!   XD   ❤

New profile pic?  Maybe?

What’s your favorite hairstyle for dolls?  Mine might be waterfall braids, I don’t know.

Hugs!

My Favorites From The August 2016 AG Release – By IrishAG

Hi guys!  I’m so excited because………..  Melody’s HERE!!!!  🙂

There is so much that’s been released!  I’m going to post my opinion on all of Melody’s things, and then post my faves from the other collections.  All of the pictures are from American Girl’s website.  They’re having some bundle sales, if you’re interested.

Melody™ Doll & Book

Melody is CUTE!!!  Seriously.  I love her flippy hair, and the Sonali face mold definitely needs to be used more often!  ❤  ❤  I love her plaid dress.

Melody's Accessories

The hat!  The rest of it is fine, but the hat is my fave.

Blue Bow Top & Pleated Plaid Skort for Girls

This is for girls.  I like the skirt!

Melody's Fancy Floral Dress for 18-inch Dolls

When I first saw this dress, I thought it was hideous!  I like it a lot more now.  😀  It looks great with her skin.

Melody's Hairstyling Set

Her hairstyling set doesn’t have that much in it, but the hair is fun.

Melody's Recording Studio

I don’t think this is worth $250.  It would be a fun toy, though.

Melody's Microphone Set

I like the set!  The tambourine is cute!

  Melody's Electric Piano

So sunshiny and fun!  If a bit overpriced.

Melody's Pajamas for 18-inch Dolls

Look at her widdle braids!  So cute.  I like the P.J.s, but the Tinkerbell pom pom shoes are the best.  🙂

Starry Pajamas for Girls

Not my favorite P.J.s Ag has released.  They’re okay, but Maryellen’s are cuter.  These are for girls.

Melody's Dog, Bo

Aaaaw!  Bo’s bow matches Melody’s!  I’m not a huge fan of making the pets stuffed animals, but he’s cute.

Melody's Bed & Bedding

I like it!  The bedroom accessories really make it, though.

Melody's Bedroom Accessories

The elephant’s different.  I like the color of the radio.

 Melody's Play Outfit for 18-inch Dolls

I want to see it in person to get my opinion.  Love the bows and braids!

 Melody's Table & Chairs

Cute, the table reminds me of key lime pie.  🙂

 Melody's Block Party Set

This set looks so fun!  I really like it.  🙂
Melody's Christmas Outfit for 18-inch Dolls

This is my favorite outfit Melody has!  The color, the design, everything!  🙂

Melody's Fancy Coat for 18-inch Dolls

Cute!

Melody's Travel Essentials

This is fun, I love the round suitcase!

Melody™ Mini Doll

I don’t like the new design of the mini dolls as much as I liked the old design.

Whew!  Okay, now I’m just going to post my faves.  (I didn’t post Melody’s books, but she has some.)

American Girl Winter Wishes Outfit for WellieWishers Dolls

Love the cape.

American Girl Hair Salon Scene

FUN!

American Girl Truly Blue Hairstyling Caddy

I like the blue color.

Bagpipe99’s Edits August 2016 – By IrishAG

Hi guys!!!

Bagpipe99 edited some of the pictures I’ve taken of our dolls.  For some reason, I couldn’t post them until now.  Better late than never!  On to the photos.

Displaying 10-29-15-098edit1.jpg

I LOVE this one!  Might be Josefina’s new profile pic… just throwin’ it out there.  🙂

Displaying f0ca19dadadd0d3b514d91add6597d79edit1.jpg

You know who she’s dressed as?

(Not my picture.)

If you guessed Queen Elsa from Frozen Fever, you’re right!  It’s the first costume I’d done, so it’s not totally screen-accurate.  🙂

Thanks again, Bagpipe99!

Brazilian Wannabe – By IrishAG

Howdy peeps!

I had no ideas for the title of this photoshoot!  I settled on Brazilian Wannabe, because Julia is so light skinned.  Julia is wearing Lea’s Celebration Outfit, but right after I took the photos, I noticed I forgot the headband!!!!  I bought this dress when we went to the Lea Movie Premiere.

Enough chatter, here are the photos.  😀

8-4-16 001

I thought her cheeks looked really chubby and adorable…

8-4-16 003

For some reason, this reminds me of a princess who is never allowed to leave the courtyard…  seeing the tempting grass at the edge of her luxurious cage, yet never being able to feel it between her toes… dramatic, right?  🙂

8-4-16 004

The focus is more on the background here.

8-4-16 010This picture has such an old-timey feel.  😀  Guess what she does with the flowers!  (You’ll see in two pictures!)

8-4-16 011Cute widdle shoes!

8-4-16 014Julia the fairy!  I love the little rainbow on the right side!  I didn’t see that before!  🙂

8-4-16 015

Pretty fairy lass!

8-4-16 016Experimenting with angles.  Ya know.

8-4-16 026MUSHROOMS!  I immediately thought of Pippin.  🙂  Her dress seems to glow…

8-4-16 027A secret path…

8-4-16 028IVY!   XD  Why do AG tags have to be so huge?  😦

Did you like the photos?  Which one is your favorite?

Happy August everybody!
