As you know, I’m smitten with the new offerings coming out of Integrity Toys. Today I made my preorder choices and was able to get most of what I wanted before they sold out. Happily, Color Infusion Cosmic Love Amelie is one that will be joining my collection. Boy, is that girl fierce! She was the inspiration for today’s photo.

Today’s model is Odd Girl Out Colette. She is wearing Best Models on location: Barcelona Barbie’s dress,  Fashion Royalty jewelry and a pair of Model Muse Barbie sandals. Her photo was taken in my driveway, overlooking the street in front of my house, in the late evening sunshine.

I was going through some older photos and found a set of doll pictures that I took last year. I never got around to editing them, so they never made it into my Flickr photostream or onto my blog. So, finally they see the light of day…

The Girls Glimpse A Pair Of Deer During A Stroll In The Snow

The Girls Glimpse A Pair Of Deer During A Stroll In The Snow

Deer sightings are pretty common in my neck of the woods, and it seems almost magical when you spot them walking through the snow. So when I found these lovely miniature deer at the flea market, I knew they’d eventually make it into one of my dollie photo shoots.

Today’s models are Painted Black Erin and Odd Girl Out Colette. Erin is wearing the jacket from wave 2 Dynamite Girls Reese and a Barbie scarf that I got in an Advent gift pack. Cole is wearing a jacket and skirt from a Kari Mitchell fashion pack. I set the scene up in my front yard in the morning after a fresh snowfall last December. I remember that one of the neighbors was outside kinda looking over and I figured they probably thought I was crazy, but, eh, I’ve grown accustomed to that, so it really didn’t matter. 😉 The important thing is just to get the shot and have fun doing it.

Winter In The Woods Always Seems Magical

Do you remember cutting out paper snowflakes when you where a kid? I do. It was a lot of fun. I remember cutting shapes into the pattern, especially hearts and Christmas trees. I also remember the mess of little white bits everywhere. Good times. 🙂

Today’s model is Odd Girl Out Colette. She is wearing a Barbie Santa hat and Christmas dress, Red Rabbit Misaki’s stockings, Urban Outfitting Nadja’s gloves, Fire Fly Agnes’ boots and a scarf that I made myself. She’s holding a paper snowflake garland that I found a Target a few years ago. She’s standing on a ladder that you’ve seen in previous shoots. And if the background looks familiar, it’s because it’s taken in front of the Christmas tree and decked out pine garlands surrounding the front windows in my living room.

Since There’s Still No Snow Falling Outside,

We’ll Have to Make Our Own Snowflakes.

The weather’s been warm and sultry, quite unusual for this early in the year, and the woods are bursting with life. So many birds – hummingbirds, cedar waxwings, orioles, scarlet tanagers, cardinals, bluebirds – they’re everywhere. Many types of butterflies and dragonflies have been flitting through the gardens. A trio of young deer walked past me in the driveway last week. It’s really amazing how the unseasonal weather has kick-started the parade of life that we share the woods with.

Fashion Royalty’s Odd Girl Out Colette has shed her original clothing and found more fitting forest gear. Her outfit and staff are original to a Xena Warrior Princess: Amazon Princess Gabrielle figure. I did some customizing and a few alterations, since Colette has a slimmer build than Gabrielle, so now it’s a perfect fit.  In forest fashion, Colette is exploring the wilds of my backyard. The photo was taken in the afternoon, under brightly sunlit skies. I lowered the exposure on my camera to capture the dangerous darkness of the woods.

The Woods Are Lovely, Dark And Deep.

It snowed last night. There’s a fresh sparkling blanket of it over everything outside. The bitter wind of previous days has died away. This morning, all is hushed and peaceful.

To enjoy the serene scene in style, Colette dons a Kari Mitchell gown and long coat. Now she’s ready for a quiet walk in the snowy woods.
