Elizabeth’s Ensemble

Yeah… I had a hard time naming this one.  😉

Hello readers!  Happy December!  I’m so ready for Christmas… so here’s a photo shoot of Elizabeth the 1st in a holiday outfit.  🙂

(Omigosh I just realized I’ve never taken a photo shoot of her!!!!)

Ahem.

Artsy angle shot… why not?

What’s she wearing?

  • Jumper and blouse from my Grandma (old AG)
  • Hat from Elizabeth’s riding outfit
  • Tights from somewhere…
  • Felicity’s black meet shoes

Posts have not been priorities lately… sorry about that.  My goal is 3 posts a month, but I also want to provide quality content, you know?  And where I live, the scenery’s pretty bleak for photos from November to April.  Maybe I’ll get some practice with inside photos!

Julia’s Last ‘Summer’ Picnic

soda pop 004.JPGHey all!  Can you believe it’s already October 23rd?!?  Crazy!  Anyway…

A little while ago, I wanted  to take some pics using the cooler set, and this is what came out of it!

One day, Julia decided to take advantage of the beautiful, warm autumn day.  Coconut inspired her by going to her bright orange cooler and making sad, squeaky noises.  Julia was not ready for Summer to be over, so she tried to make a picnic that was as beachy as possible.

soda pop 024“Coconut?!?  Where’d you go?  You’re the one who whined by the cooler and started this whole thing!”  Julia said, a teensy bit worried and a whole lot annoyed.

soda pop 026“This sandwich is too big.  I’ll go get Josefina to have lunch with me!”  Julia said.

“Woof!”

“Don’t even think about eating them while I’m gone.  I think I’ll take you with me, you’ve caused a lot of mischief already!”

Hey readers!

So in this post, the picnic blanket was actually a napkin.  That’s what is so fun about doll stuff – you can use small human things for them!

That’s about it… see you later!

Princess Hair Photoshoot + Tutorial

princess twist photoshoot 001.JPGHey!  Happy October!

A little while back, I made an instructable on how to do a princess twist hairstyle.  You can view it here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Fast-Easy-Non-Braiding-Princess-Crown-Updo/

But I had a bunch of extra photos from it, and I thought I’d post them here!  🙂

I’ve been thinking if maybe I should start having smaller photo shoots, like ones about this size.  Maybe I’d be more selective, only picking the best photos to post.  What do you think?

Williamsburg Morning – a Photo Shoot

colonial grace 006.JPGGuten tag!

So, right now I’m experimenting with different lighting.  Usually I take my photos in the late morning or early afternoon, but for this photoshoot, I took it in the 7am hour!

I don’t think it’s my favorite kind of lighting, but maybe if I was a little more experienced…

I simply LOVE Felicity’s Beforever dress!  The colors compliment each other beautifully, and it is such good quality.  🙂

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

10-13-16 009.JPG

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!

She has such a gentle face.  🙂

Now for Gymnast03’s pics:

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.

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!

Her hair is so blonde.

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?
