Monkey dress!

Hello reader!  🙂

Sewing/making things for your dolls is so much more fun than buying them, in my opinion.(Most of the time.)  🙂  I went to a doll sewing class, where we made these cute pillowcase dresses!  I made a purple one, (which you might’ve seen in the Happy Birthday Addy! post) and this one Grace is wearing:

Look at the little monkeys!  They’re eating watermelon and strawberries.    😀

Don’t these irises look like popcorn?  That’s what I always think of when I see them.  🙂

Grace is just so photogenic!  It probably helps that she has the Josefina face mold, which usually looks gentle and peaceful.

Strawberries or watermelon?  😀

Tutu Triplets

6-1-17 016.JPGHello!  Happy June!

Yesterday, I realized that I have never taken photos with all of my dolls before, at least since I got Addy.  So, here are my three dolls: Nellie, Julia, and Addy.  (BTW… they’re not triplets, I just liked the alliteration for the title.)

I just ❤ the coconut cutie outfit!!!  I got it as a PWP, I think.  I’m making it Julia’s “meet” outfit.  It is really well-made, and soft.  It comes with a shirt, tutu skirt, shoes, and two plastic bow clips, which I didn’t put in her hair for these pics.

Julia’s Wishful Thinking

2-24-17-006

Hi reader!   🙂

I don’t know about you, but I’m already itching for Spring.  It’s my favorite season!  It’s Julia’s favorite, too.  And since it is her birthday month (and she um, kind of wasn’t in the Valentine’s Day post… even though it was her birthday…) she deserved a photo shoot!

2-24-17-003

She looks like a totally different doll in this pic… isn’t it weird how that happens?  Pro tip:  If you’re considering buying a doll, google it!  Check out lots of pictures of her, and if you still like the look of her from various angles, you know it’s the one.    XD

2-24-17-018

This reminds me of a cover of an Anne of Green Gables-type book.  I got really lucky  with the weather, the ground was dry and the rain didn’t start until I was done taking photos!

I just noticed that this shoot had a sort of melancholy feel to it.  Maybe the grey sky helped?  Thoughts?

Julia is wearing Nellie’s Spring party dress, barette and shoes.

I Am the Winter Princess

I am the Winter Princess

10-14-16 004.JPG

I bring ice and snow

10-13-16-033

Cold winds blow

10-14-16-014

Adults flee from my icy touch

children run to feel it

To catch a snowflake,

light as a whisper

on their tongues

I am the Winter Princess

I am danger and frostbite

I freeze the ponds and lakes

I bury the towns in snow

10-13-16 050.JPG

I cover flowers

10-13-16-029

I am swift and terrible

10-13-16-034

merciless

I am the Winter Princess

10-14-16 018.JPG

I am dazzling, pristine beauty

10-14-16-006

Like a diamond

or a crystal chandelier

my icicles sparkle

My wind swirls

glittering snowflakes

10-13-16-012

I am Autumn’s foe

Spring’s herald

I froze my fingers off at 8:30AM to take photos with the frost!  The things we do for doll blogging.   XD

This poem-shoot (or whatever you call it  🙂  ) is for the character from my photo story Crystals, Wynter.  It’s been in the works for 4 months, so here you go.   😀

This post is a little different from my usual, a photo shoot telling a poem’s story.  Thoughts and opinions would be very appreciated.  🙂

Happy Groundhog day!

Nellie at Dusk – A Collab Photo Shoot

Howdy everyone!  Happy October!

A few days ago, I was doing a photo shoot with Nellie.  Gymnast03 was outside too, and was willing to take some photos with me!  XD

10-2-16-007

The shirt is from Melody’s debut event, which I’ll make a post about soon!

10-2-16-008

She has such a gentle face.  🙂

Now for Gymnast03’s pics:

10-2-16-028

Cool blurry look.

10-2-16-029

Now I challenge you: find a friend, sister, cousin, parent, etc. and take a photo shoot with them!  It’s especially helpful if you’re out of ideas for photos.  🙂  If you do it, I’d love to see!  Just comment a link to your blog post.

Do you like Fall?

Forest Elf: a Photo Shoot

Happy September readers!  Two posts in two days!  I’m on a roll.  🙂

I’ve never taken a photo shoot of Elizabeth the 2nd!  So here it is.  She kinda looks like an elf, hence the title.  I made the cape, my Mom and Bagpipe99 made the dress, and the shoes are from AG.

In the tree…  I love waterfall braids!

9-1-16 024

Her hair is so blonde.

This is probably my favorite pic from this photo shoot.  It just happened, this is not edited.

I was really not inspired for commentary today.  Sorry.  Maybe the pictures speak for themselves?

If you could make up a story with one or more of these pictures, what would it be about?

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.

8-30-16 015

Smooth floor…

8-30-16 016

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

8-30-16 017

Twirling!   XD   ❤

8-30-16 019

New profile pic?  Maybe?

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

Hugs!

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!

Tropical Morning – By IrishAG

Hello world!

When we went to the Lea movie premiere, I bought Lea’s Rainforest Dreams Pajamas.  Here’s my mini review:

I ❤ them!  They are soft and cute.  The slippers are so fuzzy!  There’s nothing I dislike about them.  I give them a 5 out of 5 star rating.

Now for a photoshoot!  I think Addy looks gorgeous in this with her dark coloring.  😀

7-6-16 010

I also tried cornrows on her for the first time!  I LOVE cornrows.  Especially the rope braid kind.  Next time, I’ll probably make the braids smaller.

7-6-16 012

❤  ❤   ❤

7-6-16 014

7-6-16 015

7-6-16 016Another look at her hair.  🙂

7-6-16 017

In case you needed proof that the slippers are the cutest…

Have you ever tried cornrows on yourself or your doll?

Beautiful Bride – By IrishAG

Hello!  I made a dress for our AG dolls a few months ago, and I saved this photo shoot for later.  Bet you can guess what it is!10-29-15 081

 

If you guessed wedding dress, you were right!  🙂

10-29-15 096And the back.  It’s a lace up bodice, with an extra long ribbon.  🙂

10-29-15 098What is she wearing?

Dress – homemade wedding dress, made by me

Shoes – Nellie’s party dress shoes (Retired)

Necklace – a ribbon I found

Which photo was your favorite?  Have you ever made a wedding dress for your doll?
