Continuing on with the beach theme, we also took a day trip to Point Pleasant, New Jersey while we were on vacation. This was actually during the first week of vacay, so technically I’m doing things backwards. Yeah, that’s how I roll. LOL πŸ˜‰

Today’s model is Color Infusion: Cosmic Love Amelie. In the first couple of photos, she is wearing a Barbie sun visor, earrings made by me, Summer Blues Misaki’s swim suit & jacket, High Toned Rayna’s bracelet and sandals from a Barbie fashion multipack. She is sitting on an older Mattel Barbie lounge chair and has Barbie sunscreen and Summer Blues Misaki’s tote bag. Her photo was taken on the sand by our blanket.

In the last two photos, Amelie is wearing a Mattel Barbie top (possibly from a Fashion pack, I’m having a hard time remembering exactly), Queen of the hive Natalia’s short shorts, a Barbie headscarf (originally a sheer wrap that came with an evening dress) and High Tide Vanessa’s shoes. She is riding a remote controlled ATV that I found in Kmart. (I modified the ATV to better accommodate her long legs by removing and lowering the foot pegs on the vehicle.) Her photos were taken along the shoreline near the ocean andΒ  further up the beach towards the boardwalk.

We had a rare springlike day last week. Being outdoors actually felt civilized. And, just like that, I am ready to say good-bye to winter.

Rebel Spirit Amelie

Rebel Spirit Amelie

Today’s model is Color Infusion: Rebel Spirit Amelie. Her hair has been washed and restyled – I just couldn’t take that stiff Kewpie curl. She is wearing Something Sexy Adele’s sunglasses, People Do Fall In Love – Breakfast at Tiffany’s Holly Golightly’s sweater, Sassy Stripes Misaki’s shorts (I removed the attached net stockings – *snip, snip*), Barbie tights (the actual Barbie’s name eludes me – but it was probably from the 1990s – it came with a striped hat, tunic & boots), Lady Like Misaki’s shoes, ooak earrings (made by me), a Fashion Royalty necklace & bracelet, Aphrodisiac mini clone’s ring and Top Model Teresa’s purse. Amelie’s photo was taken in the afternoon, by an old brick column, in my Mom’s front yard.

Sometimes, the photo opportunities that present themselves are here for a moment and gone in a flash. I try to remember to have dolls dressed and ready so I don’t miss them. I also have a tendency not to give up on adverse conditions and squeeze everything I can out of them. In my opinion, trying and failing is alright – you still learn something. But not even bothering to try is unimaginable.

About a week and a half ago, the twelfth to be exact, a fast moving snow squall blew in. It was already evening and a bit on the gloomy side, but I snatched a doll out of the curio cabinet, grabbed my coat & boots and ran outside to try and make some magic. The squall only lasted about twenty minutes, the wind was downright tricky and the lighting was quite dark. Afterwards, some low angled sunshine peeped out and then promptly disappeared. I did, however, get some satisfying shots. πŸ™‚ Once I warmed up indoors with a hot cup of cocoa, I was glad I gave it a go.

Well, That Was Over Quickly. Huh!

Today’s model is Color Infusion: Cosmic Love Amelie. She is wearing Beatnik Blues Poppy’s tights and turtleneck top, Target exclusive Paul Frank Barbie’s skirt, Bob Mackie 80s Cher Barbie’s jacket, Trendy Girl Misaki’s fingerless gloves, Regal Solstice Anja’s shoes, NuFantasy Snow White Kumi’s hair bow and custom made jewelry (necklace, earrings) created by me. The first and last photos were taken in our backyard and the middle one was taken in our front yard.

Last year we got hammered (or spoiled, depending on how ya look at it) with a whole mess of snow. It seemed like there was a blizzard every other week. And it was cold enough not to melt away.

This year, it’s been a snow famine and unseasonably warm, too. We had a freak snow storm at the end of October and then…nothing. Well, a couple of measly dustings and flurries…but that’s it. Nothing lasting. Until last Saturday. Finally some snow to shoot dollie photos in. Yippee! It was pretty gloomy out during the storm and even after it stopped snowing…but, hey! Hello! Finally the snow is here. Beggars can’t be choosers, so I apologize in advance for the less-than-stellar lighting.

Winter Color Splash Erin

Winter Color Splash Erin

Today’s model is Color Infusion Psychedelic Splash Erin, a Jet Set convention centerpiece doll. Actually, I bought her decapitated head on ebay. LOL. Which led to me posting a question on the W club inquiring who’s body would make a suitable donor for her and patiently waiting for an answer. The bad news…not too many dolls were made to match her head. The closest is Dynamite Girls Aqua Bella Jett – only the nail polish is different. After much searching, I finally found a fellow doll collector willing to sell her to me at close to the original retail price. Yay! So I heated ’em up and swapped out the heads – poor Jett is lolling, minus her body, in a box….maybe I can find her a new home someday…But, I digress…

Anyway…After the transplant, I washed Erin’s hair in lukewarm water, carefully combed it out and let it air dry. And then she got redressed. Erin is wearing the earrings and sweater dress from the “Hello Bolly!” Luxury Wear fashion, an ooak scarf crocheted by me, London Mist Imogen’s trench coat and boots from the Brides of Dracula: Eternally Together Lucy. Her photo was taken in our front yard, in the late afternoon, after the snow had stopped.

Oh, No!

Where’s All The Snow?!

Where, Oh, Where

Did It Go?

I Just Don’t Know.

This time of year, when it’s so cold and comfort is in short supply, there are few things more welcome than a snuggly sweater. And if it happens to be borrowed from a sweetheart, all the better….Ah, it’s like wearing a hug!

Colorful Ayumi

Today’s model is Color Infusion Sunset Rave Ayumi from the Jet Set convention. She is wearing a sweater from Ken’s fashion pack, Simply Simpatico Poppy & Darla’s blouse and skirt, stockings of unknown origin (I wish I could remember, ugh!), earrings that I made myself and a 4mm solid jump ring on her finger. I took the photo a while ago (I’ve been procrastinating again) on an overcast day in November. The image was shot on our front porch in the morning just before a cold rainstorm. The bench was a flea market find.

Every Day A Dollie has become more like Every Now And Then A Dollie, LOL. Yeah, yeah, I’ve been so not in the picture taking mode. But I was totally inspired by one of the new dolls to recently join my tribe. And after a hair washin’, a wardrobe change and some time in front of the camera in our yard – I’m back in the zone. πŸ™‚

Cosmic Love Love Love Her!

Cosmic Love Love Love Her!

Today’s model is Cosmic Love Amelie. She’s from Fashion Royalty’s new Color Infusion line. I can’t say enough good things about her…well the whole line, really. Pure awesomeness. Anyway, Amelie has had her hair washed out and brushed. She is wearing earrings that I got with an ooak fashion on Ebay, a Fashion Royalty necklace and an LIV top. I took her all around the yard and took a mess of photos, so click the Flickr link if ya wanna see more.
