Doll Photography #6

Hi everyone, 
Today I decided I should do a doll photography post. 

Here are the pictures: 

                              This picture of Felicity's eye never made it into the photoshoot.
                              But I like the way her eye looks.

                         I really like the way the glass looks in this picture of Hera.

This picture of Z is being used as my header!:) 

Even though the lighting in this picture isn't the best (since I think it was taken at night),
I like how the shadows work in the photo. 

Which picture is your favorite? 


P. S. I am planning to continue the "What's Happening in This Picture," 
however, I need more captions. You can leave a caption here.

Happy Valentine's Day (+ Photo shoot)

Hi everyone!:) Happy Valentine's day, today I thought I would do a photoshoot with these dolls (or characters) that seemed the most "Valentinesy" (and romantic). In order of Appearance:

Aphrodite from Greek Mythology

Katrina Van Tassel from Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (even though her story is technically a Halloween story, I thought she would like to be in the photo shoot).

Freya from Norse Mythology

Here is the photo shoot (Unlike the other photo shoots I have done, I will be including facts about the characters instead of talking about the photos.):



                            Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beauty. She was born out the sea and one of the most famous paintings of her is The Birth of Venus (Venus is her Roman name). Her son Eros (aka Cupid) is a big part of Valentine's Day. He in fact shows up on a lot of cards, and decorations.
Aphrodite also has a girdle that will make the wearer more beautiful.

                                       Katrina Van Tassel 

       Katrina is a character from Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
             She is part of the romantic subplot of the novella, and even though she doesn't get much       attention in the book, several movie versions have developed her character.
            Katrina is often portrayed as a beautiful, slightly mischievous person
          (who is also the catalyst of the whole conflict between Ichabod and Brom.)



      Freya is the Norse goddess of love, beauty, and war. She has a charriot pulled by cats, and wears a necklace that she never takes off. The necklace is so beautiful that even the god Loki tried to steal it. 
My dolls wish you a Happy Valentine's Day!

Which photo is your favorite? And which character is your favorite? 

I hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day,

Craft Protect: How to Make Colonial Hairstyle for Boy Dolls

Hi Everyone!:)
Today I am going to show you how to do a Colonial hairstyle for boy dolls with plastic hair using yarn. I was inspired by MyFroggyStuff's Mal doll. Since you probably already know I love the Colonial era...So I thought why not do the Colonial hairstyle on dolls?

What you need:
Yarn (It has to be thick enough that it can be unraveled.)
A hot glue gun
A hairbrush (to brush it out)
A doll (with plastic hair)

                                First you start by brushing out the yarn  (until it looks somewhat like hair)
                               and then you glue it to your doll's head.

Continue until the first part of your doll's head is covered with yarn.
Then since you will have left over yarn in your hairbrush, use the left over yarn to cover 
the top of your doll's head. 
Some parks may be harder to cover than others. 

                                Here is what your boy doll may look like when you are finished.

This also works on girl dolls that have sculpted plastic hair (like Liv dolls, etc.). By doing this you can change the doll's hair color, as well as giving them textured hair.



This doll's hair ended up looking more like a powdered wig than real hair. 


Where as this one ended looking more like it was real hair. 


What do you think? Are you planning to try it?
