Sometimes the best photos come from taking risks. Had this photo shoot gone wrong, poor dollie would have been lost at sea. Thank goodness it went pretty much as planned. It’s a good day when mishaps are avoided and you get the shot you’re looking for. 🙂

Whoosh!

Whoosh!

Today’s model is a customized Look of Love Poppy Parker with rerooted hair and repainted lips. She is wearing Cali Girl Christie’s bathing suit and goggles & swim fins from a recent Barbie fashion pack. Her swim tube is actually a floating dog chew toy from the pet section at TJ Maxx. Her photo was taken at the edge of the Atlantic ocean on Wildwood beach. I watched the tide line, got the camera ready and placed Poppy down to await the incoming waves. *Nerve wracking!* I have to tell you, it was tough stuff trying to avoid the other swimmers, positioning and placing Poppy down in the right spot (far enough to catch a wave, close enough to keep from losing her), watching the scene through the camera’s lens and keeping an eye on the ocean water, choosing the proper moment to take the shot and hurrying to catch Poppy before the waves dragged her and her tube right out to sea. LOL, I was giggling and smiling and just plain relieved by the time I got done! It was as much fun as when I was a kid and would lose myself in play. Only now, I have photos to look back on long after the moment has passed on and become a fond memory.

I had a fiendishly fun time dragging Ghoulia around the boardwalk for photos.

Even Zombies Can't Resist A Merry-Go-Round

Even Zombies Can’t Resist A Merry-Go-Round

Today’s model is Monster High: Skulltimate Roller Maze Ghoulia Yelps. She is wearing the sunglasses from Monster High: Toralei’s fashion pack, a Bratz top, a Juku Couture skirt & tights, black bracelets & necklace from the Monster High: Ghoulia Yelps Comic Book Club fashion pack and a pink arm cuff from some random fashion doll (not sure who the original owner is). Her photo was taken on our vacation to the shore in Wildwood, New Jersey on the boardwalk pier.

It’s All Fun & Games Until…

Nah, It’s All Fun & Games.

And That’s All.

Well, not really…it’s a Roadmaster Luxury Liner bicycle. But, I’m such a fan of that line from The Muppet Movie, that I just had to use it for today’s blog title. Heh, heh. Anyway, I’m still working on sharing more photos from our trip down the Jersey shore. So, here they are…

Today’s model is Ask Any Girl Poppy Parker. Her hair has been washed, brushed out and pulled back with hair clips found at the Dollar store. Her bike is a limited edition scale model of a Roadmaster Luxury Liner made by the Brunswick corporation in 1998 – a fun flea market find. Poppy is wearing a tank top from one of the Fashion Fever Barbie dolls, Cali Girl Barbie’s shorts, a one-of-a-kind crocheted bikini made by me and some random Barbie sneakers (Teen Skipper’s maybe?, not sure).  Her photo was taken on the boardwalk down the shore in Wildwood, New Jersey.

There’s nothing more soothing than a walk on the beach…the smell of  suntan lotion hanging in the air, the ocean breeze, the sound of children laughing while splashing in the waves…ahhh….

We went on vacation earlier this month and  I’m finally getting around to downloading, editing, uploading and posting photos. It’s going to take a while to get to them all, but here’s a taste…

Poppy #2 On the Balcony of Our Room – You Can See the Beach, Boardwalk & Ocean From Up Here!

Today’s models are Ask Any Girl Poppy Parker and a one-of-a-kind rerooted Look of Love Poppy Parker with repainted lips.

Ask Any Girl is wearing Stylish Escape Veronique’s sunglasses, an unknown Mattel Barbie top (possibly Fashion Avenue or My Scene), Holiday in the Hamptons Poppy’s trousers, Bonjour Misaki’s sandals and handmade jewelry (earrings & bracelets) made by me. She is carrying luggage from the Poppy Parker as Sabrina Most Sophisticated giftset. Photo #1 was taken at the front door to our room, photo #2 was taken in the room on the entertainment center.

Our second model is wearing Pretty in Plaid Barbie’s dress, Jet Set: High Toned Rayna’s bracelets & earrings and My Scene sunglasses. She is carrying luggage from the Poppy Parker as Sabrina Most Sophisticated giftset and Girl of the Moment Veronique’s train case. Her photo was taken on our room’s balcony.

There are newer, more posh places to stay in Wildwood, but none have what I consider the perfect location & view. Looking out from our balcony, you can see the boardwalk, beach & ocean. At night you can see the rides lit up on the piers in the distance. The great “Wildwoods” sign is center stage, with huge concrete beach balls leading up to it – such a fab photo spot!

We had a most excellent time and there are many more photos to come…eventually. 😉

If you’re reading this, thanks for checking in. I’ve been away longer than intended, but precisely as long as I needed.  Before the break, hubby & I had taken a few day trips down the shore. I brought a hoard of dolls and took so many pictures that I never really did share them all. So I’ll just pick up where I left off…

Eat Your Heart Out, Farrah Fawcett!

Eat Your Heart Out, Farrah Fawcett!

Today’s model is a frankendollie: an Old Is New Giselle head on a Poppy Parker body. She is wearing a Barbie bathing suit – from a Fashionistas clothing pack, I think. In her hair are tiny clips from the dollar store. Her photo was taken at the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey.

Once again, it was hard to choose a favorite, there were so many. If you’d like to see the other ones, just click on my Flickr link.

Um, I’m not sure if I’m going to make it to post here tomorrow. But I don’t think I’ll be gone all that long.

Meet Me At The Beach…If Only In My Daydreams…

Well, hubby went back to work today. Our vacation is over. 😦 But I still have some beach pictures left to share. 🙂 So, onto the photo…

Ken Plays Frisbee Near The Ocean At Wildwood, NJ

Ken Plays Frisbee on the Beach at Wildwood, NJ

Today’s model is Barbie Basics Ken: collection 002 model no. 15 – jeans collection. He is wearing another Ken’s shorts – I don’t know if they’re from a carded fashion or Cali Blaine or the My Scene boys or what. He’s got a frisbee that is from a frisbee shooter toy. We got it with tickets we won at the arcade on the boardwalk when we were at Point Pleasant earlier in the week. His photo was taken in the early evening on the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey.

Go Out And Play

And Have A Fun Day!
