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?

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.

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…

Crystals – Part 1

     Cast:

Lady/Princess Wynter – Grace

10-15-15 024

Cherry Blossom (flower elf) – Julia

Rinna Clearwater (water elf) – Elizabeth the 2nd

Part 1

     It was a lovely Fall day in Elfwyld when the Ladies gathered.  Flame colored leaves carpeted the ground, and squirrels were busy hiding their nuts.  The mysterious and elusive Queen Elaina of the Four Seasons had summoned the Ladies Fleurette, Sommar, Autumn and Wynter to the yearly council.  The first part of the council would be the formal recognition of the Ladies becoming Princesses of their respective seasons.  The second part would be what most of the councils were: discussing how long and dramatic each season would be, among other things.  Queen Elaina was invisibly there, few knew how.  In her stead, the gnome Eegrek would preside.

 11-9-16 012.JPG

Hidden behind a large urn, the two young elves Cherry Blossom (a flower elf) and Rinna Clearwater (a water elf) were waiting intently for the Ladies.  Actually, Rinna was waiting, and she had dragged Cherry Blossom along.  “I don’t even want to see those ladies in all their frippery and finery.” grumbled Cherry.  “Oh shush.  You’re just better at containing your excitement.” Rinna countered, not bothering to look back at Cherry.  Cherry muttered, “Look, there’s Posie.”  She pointed to a dark haired elf who was walking by.

11-9-16-018

“You’ll give away our hiding spot!” Rinna scolded, “If we want to see anything, we have to stay out of earshot.  Most people would love to have two errand-runners.  And I am so curious!”  Cherry quieted.

     11-9-16 021.JPG

     Lady Wynter stared out of her carriage.  Today she’d take her mother’s place as the Winter Princess.  She closed her eyes, remembering their last talk, right before her parents were called away on a mission far off in their land.

“Mother?  Something strange happened.”

“What is it?”

“Ice and snow keep coming and floating around me.  I can move the it, just by thinking about it!”

“This is such good news!  Teri, you have inherited my powers.  You will be the next Winter Princess.”

“But that’s your job!”

“It’s natural, little crystal.  When another elf gains season powers, that’s a signal to the current Prince/Princess that he/she needs to step down.  It’s been this way for centuries, a part of our Oath.  One day, you’ll step down and let another gifted elf take your place.”

11-9-16 027.JPG

     Wynter fought the childish tears of disappointment that welled behind her eyes.  Her parents had promised to come, but wouldn’t be able to until at least tomorrow.  They wouldn’t see her become a Princess.  She straightened.  Now, she had to carry on her Mother’s job.

“Lady Wynter?  We’re here.”

Hey everybody!

So, I’m starting a photo story series!  Do you recognize Rinna and Cherry?  🙂

What do you think of this first part?  Maybe it wasn’t too interesting, with all the details.  Feedback would be appreciated!

Melody’s Summer Block Party Event

Hey everyone!

In August, my Mom and I went to the AG Place in Chicago for Melody’s Summer Block Party Event!  I took no pictures of Melody or anything in her collection, because I figured you’ve all seen a million pictures just like that.  And I was focusing on fun.   😀

 10-2-16-007

They gave out Melody doll shirts, which I REALLY like.  The lime green is such an original color.  And it went with Julia’s outfit that day.  🙂  The shirt came in a pink Melody packet, shown below.

10-2-16-004

They also gave out little color-in pennants with stickers, and a DIY doll garden craft.  (Not everything is shown.)  I thought it looked like a victory garden, and the seed packets say Jefferson, Illinois.  Which is where Molly, from the 1940’s, lives.  I think they reused a craft from a Molly event!

Here are the few pictures I took when I went to the store.

I really like this outfit on these dolls!  Who do you think wore it best?

8-30-16 006

Fuzzy boots!  This doll looks great, too.

8-30-16 007

They changed this display!  Julia’s in the bottom left hand corner, she was all over the store!

Sorry for not posting this sooner!  Did you go to a Melody event?
