Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Holiday Zing

Holiday Zing

Today’s model is ITBE Zing from the Gloss convention. She is wearing Foto Fab Poppy’s dress, a Color Infusion jacket from the 2013 convention Style Lab and holds a matching cocktail (the chopped off top of a drink stirrer found at TJ Maxx). Her photo was taken yesterday by the wreath on our front door.

Winter Jolt

Hey, folks! Long time no blog. I’ve come out of winter hibernation (after trimming the tree, wrapping the presents, mixing up batches of cookies…so much to do) to post some photos of a new favorite. I hope your holidays are merry and bright.

Today’s model is ITBE Jolt Amelie from the Integrity Toys Gloss convention. Her hair has been brushed out and she has been redressed. Amelie is wearing Dream Teen Poppy’s dress, a 2014 sweater ornament from Christopher & Banks, (and though you can’t see them in these photos) the tights from Sweet In Switzerland and boots from Agent Kimiko Gunn. Her photo was taken on Thanksgiving morning (though it looks more like Christmas) in our front yard.

Ugh…I have no excuse for not getting around to the lingering remains of winter doll photos…except that there are just so many.

So, even though it is technically spring, I’m still in winter mode. And I probably will be for a while. What can I say? I still have more winter wonder to share…

The Gang At The Snow Caves

The Gang At The Snow Caves

You’ve already met the models, so see previous posts for the details. But the location is new. After all the shoveling, the snow piles were pretty substantial. Given such an opportunity, I couldn’t resist digging out a cavern and steps for the dolls. When the afternoon sun lit it up, a mess of dolls came out to play. The lighting didn’t last long, but it was enough to grab a few pictures. Woo- hoo!

Winter Still Has A Few Icy Gasps Left

A roof has been added to the ice house. Yay! There was trepidation for fear of a collapse, but it was unfounded. Some wet snow was used to seal the joins, and it turned out surprisingly solid. Woo-hoo! Onto the photos…

Snuggle Buddies Cruz & Poppy

Today’s models are Poppy (…yeah, you saw her yesterday…but today she’s brought a friend) and London Calling Cruz from the Dynamite Girls collection. Cruz is wearing his original trousers, a scarf that I crocheted for him, turtleneck and boots from My Generation Chip Farnsworth III and a Color Infusion: Style Lab Fashion Experiment 5 jacket. Their photo was taken inside the newly renovated Ice House in our front yard on the last day of January.

More fun with the ice structure…

Today’s model is the hair workshop Poppy Parker doll from the Tropicalia convention. She is wearing a hat and scarf crocheted by me, a shirt from a Ken fashion pack, a Fashion Fever tunic top (all you see in the photos is the polka-dot ruffled bottom of it), Dynamite Girls: Chill Factor Aria’s skirt, Style Mantra Eden’s tights and a pair of Only Hearts Club doll’s sneakers. Her photo was taken in our front yard within the ice walls that were constructed during our deep freeze of a winter.

I remember growing up with a whole gaggle of smiley-faced Barbie dolls. Eternally joyful, their frozen grins portrayed an almost manic state of elation. Not a frown nor a single look of displeasure in the bunch. Which is probably why I now find non-smiling dolls so enchanting. From sardonic smirks to thoughtful expressions – even those in-your-face, apparently down-turned mouths that convey such disdain….I get a kick out of them all. Pout on, little dollies. It will only endear you more to me.

Where Are You Hiding Your Smile?

Today’s model is Making A Scene Erin. She is wearing a hat & scarf set that I crocheted myself. Her wardrobe also consists of: London Calling Kyu’s sweater, London Calling Holland’s turtleneck top, Mattel Stardoll fashion pack skirt, Fashion Royalty tights (maybe from Picture This Erin? not sure), Rock Wedding: Rocking Ever After Lillith’s shoes and some random Barbie sunglasses. Her photos were taken in the waxing and waning sunlight streaming through our front door. A crumpled and reflattened piece of kitchen tinfoil served as a backdrop.

I experimented with a bunch of different options on my camera during this shoot – high contrast black & white, high-key, color pop…all kinds of stuff. It was fun to try them out. Some I like, others feel like a bit of overkill. But it’s neat to experiment, I think. Though mostly a purist, I think a little tweak of “camera magic” is exciting once in a while.

We’re well into crunch time – the big day fast approaches. Soon it will be Christmas! I’ve been baking and decorating cookies, the tree has been trimmed and some of the presents are wrapped. I’ve been a busy little elf. We had a bit of snow, too. So, it truly is looking a lot like Christmas in these parts. Amid the hustle and bustle, I even found time to grab a few holiday dollie photos.

Season's Greetings!

Today’s model is Fame by Frame Imogen from the Tropicalia convention. She is wearing an elf hat crocheted by me, a sweater (sold as a tree ornament) from Christopher & Banks, LIV dolls Moolight Dance Daniela’s dress, Barbie stockings, boots from the 2008 “The Heist” convention Life of the Party fashion, Fashion Royalty earrings and bracelets and rings that are actually craft store jump rings from the jewelry department. I also created the wreath myself. It’s fashioned out of green wired holiday ribbon from Walmart and trimmed with a bow from a spool of ribbon found at Michaels in the dollar bin. Imogen’s photos were taken a couple of day’s ago in our yard – the first two in the front yard (in a snow pile that I carved a little path in – and, yes, she is standing on her own…with a little help from the snow. LOL) and the last image was taken in our backyard.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

And A Happy New Year!
