Christmas Is Coming

Yup. There’s no denying it. Christmas is coming. Soon. I just spent the day holiday shopping with my mom and my aunt. Great fun. Lots of deals. I love spending time with my family. That’s one of my favorite things about the holidays. I have more shopping trips with family scheduled soon and then cookie baking. And before long, Christmas will be here.

Momoko In Front Of The Tree

Momoko In Front Of The Tree

Today’s model is Wild & Sexy Tune Momoko. She is wearing a Lollipop Girls coat, a scarf I made, mittens that are attached to a Christopher & Banks sweater (sold as a holiday ornament), One Modern Circle Barbie’s trousers and Pop Life Kelly’s boots. She is standing in front of the fiber-optic Christmas tree at my mom’s house. The late evening light coming in the window lights the scene.

Christmas Is Coming. It’s Practically Here!

You’ll notice that I have a lot of frankendollies in my collection. I’m not afraid to swap heads and bodies to create the perfect little cutie. The way I look at it, it’s just like changing wigs, outfits or shoes from an original doll. Switching things up is all a part of the play value of doll collecting. When I spend time messing about with my little fashion models, I have fun. And that’s what’s most important to me.

Sweet Yasmin In The Garden

Sweet Yasmin In The Garden

The latest Frankendollie to come out of my lab has a Bratz Costume Party Pretty Pirate Yasmin head attached to a Fashionistas Wild Barbie body. I washed, brushed and restyled her hair into a ponytail and secured it with elastic bands. She’s modeling the latest dress fresh off my sewing machine. The necklace is one of my creations as well. The cameo pendant came from a vintage earring. She’s also wearing the boots and stockings from IFDC exclusive Alice, a pair of stud earrings from Claires and a couple of Barbie bracelets.

The clouds hung on today, but the rain stopped. So, I took Yasmin’s photo outside in the front garden. The picture was taken in the evening under very cloudy skies, lit by the camera’s flash.

So come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab. I see you shiver with antici… pation. – Dr. FrankN-Furter, The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Icarus, of Greek myth, flew too close to the sun and perished. A sad story, maybe even a lesson not to become distracted by awe – but I feel otherwise. I can relate to the idea of forgetting all else while basking in the wonderment of the surroundings. What a sight he must have seen before his demise! I kind of feel that way with photography, I always push for more (though so far without the untimely demise). I try shots, angles and lighting situations that I’m not sure will come out. I figure if I don’t try, I have nothing. But if I do try, maybe I’ll get something good. It’s worth the time and possible failure when it works. And if it doesn’t…well, then I learned something, so it’s really not a waste.

Momoko On A Ladder To The Heavens

Momoko On A Ladder To The Heavens

I wasn’t sure this shot would work. My model, Wild and Sexy Tune Momoko, was perched precariously on a ladder I found recently at a church sale. She’s wearing a top & skirt from a new Moxie Girls fashion pack and Barbie shoes. The unpredictable breezes were trying their best to unseat her. I attempted the shot many different ways. First, I had the ladder propped in a cinder block while shooting from underneath. Next, hubby held the ladder while I shot from the side. And lastly, I held the ladder myself in one hand while taking photos with the camera in the other. It was tough trying to get the proper amount of late evening sunlight on the doll’s face while keeping a clear piece of sky framed in the background…oh, and then there’s the pesky task of keeping the shot in focus, too. I wasn’t sure I had any good ones until the photos were downloaded.

Hey, Kiddies! This blog post is gonna be fast and furious because I was having fun with the family all day and now midnight is approaching quickly. I did find time to snap a quick photo session and here is the result:

Wild Rosy Brilliance

Integrity Toys Monogram Brilliance dons Jazz Diva Barbie’s wig, Wild Barbie Fashionista’s dress, a pair of Mattel cuff bracelets and some Fashion Royalty earrings for a little photo session among the roses that have been so lovingly cared for by my hubby. Notice that Brilliance is so charming that even an inchworm will leave a rose bloom to be nearer to her. Cool, huh? Shot by the huge rosebush on the side of the house in late evening just as the last rays of sun were bidding us good-bye.
