Well, if you saw my last post, then you’ll recognize today’s model. Last time, her photos were taken indoors. But, I find that I really enjoy it when I can go outside and play…..

Today’s photos were taken in our front yard a little over a week  ago. Amazing what a difference moving a photo shoot outdoors makes! I swear my little dollies breathe a sigh of relief when they get to go outside…..well, maybe it’s just me. I do so love to get out there and frolic under the big, blue sky. Ahhhhhhhhhh. 🙂

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?

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.

If you follow the doings at Integrity Toys, then you know that they just rolled out preview photos of this year’s collections. I’ve been busily dreaming of which ones to put on my preorder list and hoping I’ll be able to get them. The edition sizes are quite limited and the list of dolls is long. There was one doll revealed that captured my attention and my imagination: Nu.Fantasy Pure. She’s a couture take on Snow White from the fairy tales and utilizes the Fashion Royalty NuFace “Erin” head mold. I love the name. Pure. So today’s shoot was inspired by an Erin doll named “Pure”.

Today’s model is Making A Scene Erin. She is wearing Ask Any Girl Poppy Parker’s dress. And surely she looks to fit the definition of pure, no? Oh, there’s an undercurrent of sass, mystery, melancholy and knowing – she wouldn’t be herself otherwise. 😉 But I like that about her. The photo was taken around midday on the road in front of my house, after thunderstorms moved through and the melting snows turned an ordinary day into a misty, foggy dreamworld.

I looked out the window today and saw blue skies, fluffy, white clouds and sunshine falling on golden leaves and thought how lovely it was. Then I went outside. Brrr! What you see is not always what you get. It was quite windy, with the sun popping in and out of the clouds, it was so very chilly…no, not chilly. Cold. Today was a day to bundle up.

Today’s model is Making A Scene Erin. She’s wearing a knitted hat (I bought it secondhand, but it looks like Uyek’s work), a scarf I made myself, Checking Out Colette’s blouse, Best Models on location Monte Carlo Barbie’s trousers and Firefly Agnes’ boots. Erin is snuggling into her scarf in the front yard, leaning against a Halloween pumpkin in the evening, under overcast skies.

Time To Dig Out The Mittens, Scarves and Hats. Brrr!
