Who Looks Best #3

Hi readers!   😀

I haven’t been posting very much due to (and I know you’ve heard this a million times) being busy.  Also, our computer is acting VERY strange, making it impossible to post, and difficult to comment on/read posts.  Sorry if I haven’t visited your blogs as usual.

Here I am with a Who Looks Best!  To play, simply look at the two pictures, pick your favorite model and comment your favorite!  The deadline for commenting is January 24th, 2017.  The dress is Lea Clark’s celebration dress, and will you pick…

Festive Fun – By IrishAG

 It was the day after Christmas in Williamsburg.

Felicity Merriman had celebrated with her family the day before, and since she was old enough, was allowed to stay up later than her little siblings: Nan, William and Polly.  Which was why she was still asleep when Rose came to help her dress.

“Miss Felicity?  Sorry to wake you child, but it’s time.”

12-26-16-012

Felicity groaned as she sat up, tossing the sheets off.  “Good morning, Rose,” she said, slightly slurred.

Rose chuckled.  “Good morning, yourself.  If you don’t come on out of that bed, I’m going to have to tell your parents that you have to go to bed with your siblings next year.”

That woke Felicity up.  Rose had gotten out Felicity’s favorite lavender and white striped dress for her to wear today.

12-26-16-013Felicity hated the feeling of being stuck in her dress before it was properly put on, with her arms glued to her sides.

12-26-16-014As soon as the dress was laced on, Rose excused herself to go help Mrs. Merriman.  Felicity turned the other way, and-

12-26-16-015  “AAAaaaahhh!”  she screamed, at feeling a hand on her back.

She heard giggles that were surprisingly familiar behind her.  She whirled around.

12-26-16-016“Elizabeth!!!”  Felicity scolded her best friend, “You frightened me!”

Contrary to her tone of voice, Felicity crushed Elizabeth in a hug.

“That was the idea,” said Elizabeth, muffled by Felicity’s hair, “Merry Christmas.”

“Merry Christmas to you, too.” replied Felicity, stepping away, “You must have included Rose in this surprise, too.  You came in when she left, didn’t you?”

Elizabeth’s twinkly eyes gave it all away.12-26-16-017

“And here’s your present.  I’m sorry it isn’t wrapped,” said Elizabeth.

Felicity gasped. “It matches your dress!”

“I’ll help you put it on.” promised Elizabeth.

12-26-16-027

A few minutes later, Felicity modeled for Elizabeth.

“Perfect!”

“Yes, I look just like you.  If you had red hair and green eyes,” said Felicity dryly, making Elizabeth laugh.

12-26-16-031

“Here’s your gift.  It’s not wrapped, either.”  Felicity continued, revealing a sugar bowl.

“I love it!  I’ll bring it to lessons with Miss Manderly,” said Elizabeth.

12-26-16-035“We can wear our dresses, too!” said Felicity, getting excited, “That will make lessons more fun.”

Elizabeth dropped a proper curtsy, and Felicity did the same, grinning.

“Where are the merriest girls in Virginia?”  Mr. Merriman called up the steps, “Breakfast is served.”

“He’s part of this too?”  Felicity asked, amazed at her friend’s sneakiness.

“Perhaps,” said Elizabeth, linking arms with Felicity, “But first things first.  I’ve been listening to your stomach gurgle for a while now, let’s have breakfast!”

The girls smiled all the way to the dining room.

Hey guys!  Two posts in one day!  🙂

December was just a whirlwind, am I right?  Decorations, parties, baking,…

Eating chocolate covered peppermint oreos, painting nails sparkly,…

Anyway, how was your Christmas?  Did you travel or stay home?  Play in the snow?

I hope you all had the best Christmas EVER, and that the new year brings lots of good things!  😀

Part 2

Lady Fleurette was excited.  Today she’d be coronated!  She would start her job as the Spring Princess.  Her mother had been very nervous about letting her go by herself to the Fall kingdom, which made Fleurette a little miffed.  But then, I did get my long locks accidentally burned off… and didn’t wear my hat, and freckled… she thought, fingering her now above shoulder length hair and fidgeting.  Her mother’s words from a few days ago came back to her:

“Sit still, Fleurette!”

“But I’m so antsy!  I’ve never seen the whole council, and Spring is only two seasons away!”

Her mother had smiled in spite of herself.  “You’ll need to be calm for the council, though.”

Fleurette gazed at the moving scenery, letting her mother’s words fade back into her memory.

11-9-16 045.JPG

     Lady Autumn breathed in the leafy air.  Fall, the season I’ll be in charge of.  Soon.  She loved everything about Fall: pumpkins, leaves, apple everything, and something Humans called Halloween, where children dressed up and ate too much candy.  And the fashionable clothes humans wore!  She’d tried to replicate one, with orange skinny pants and a billowy top.  Even her curly red hair screamed Fall.

11-9-16-043

     She blissfully turned her freckled face to the sun.  Since it was “her” season, the council would be held at her palace.

“I’ve gotta get back!”  she yelped, running home as fast as her boots could carry her.

***

11-9-16 035.JPG

     Lady Sommar was busy reading in her carriage.  Or, that’s what she was supposed to be doing.  She was actually staring out at the leafy trees, mourning that her season wouldn’t come for many months now.  Maybe the Queen will want a shorter Spring, her optimistic side hoped. But that’s still forever away!  Her dramatic side groaned.  She just couldn’t focus on her book, although she loved reading.  She daydreamed stories while sunshine streamed through the leaves and kissed her dark face.

Hey guys!  Can you believe November’s almost over?

So yay, new characters!  Their costumes were super fun to create.  Gymnast03 helped a lot, especially with Autumn’s outfit.  Feedback would be awesome!

More Hairstyles

Hello people!

9-14-16-0489-1-16-016

So, recently I posted two hairstyle tutorials on Instructables, a French braid with a ribbon, and a bubble braid!

Here’s the link for the French braid: http://www.instructables.com/id/French-Ribbon-Braid/

And the bubble braid: http://www.instructables.com/id/Bubble-Braid/

I’ve been posting these on Instructables because they take a lot of pictures, and I only have so much free WordPress space.  I am working on more blog posts though!

❤ , IrishAG

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.

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

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

Hugs!

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.

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!

 6-23-16 013

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.

6-23-16 022

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?
