Dark and Light
So in case you have not seen enough of these new Muse dolls by JAMIEshow/OwenSu, here I am again with some more visual reasons to consider these dolls. One of the things I like to do most with the dolls and clothing available within the 1/6 collecting community is to mix and match. I like to mix outfits from one manufacturer and put it on a doll of another manufacturer. Taking the best from one and matching it to the best of another or at least what I see as the best.
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you have seen some of these image already. I am finding it difficult to navigate Instagram, Flickr, FB and the blog all at once. I’m lucky if I get images done and processed and it’s simply easier to get them up on Instagram first. The blog however helps to explain more of the behind the scenes stuff and what my thought process was when I did something sometimes. We consume and process so much visually that honestly, more people just like to see the pictures. I get it. Some of us, however, are happy to get more information or delve a little deeper.
I love doing these shots that are all about styling an outfit and not necessarily a doll. It becomes my mood board for a future shoot and I like how it starts a story for a blog post. Here is my mood board shot for a set of images using the new Ginnie Muse doll. Red is a signature color for the design house Valentino.
Model: Ginnie Premier Muse Doll( Summer Kisses edition now available)
Gown and Boots: Lovetones 3rd Anniversary Lena
Gold veil: Gold glitter tulle
Japanese maple branches: Designed and made by me for this shoot
Yes..this dress has pockets!! Sometimes it’s the details that just kill me. I admit, am a little obsessed with these Japanese maple branches.
So clearly the pictures above are dark. The doll, the wig, the rich tones of the gown and the background. I have one diffused light left side and another diffused accent light in back right
So….where there is dark, hopefully there is light. Lest you think this doll only projects well in darkness…..

It doesn’t even look like the same doll right?!! The versatility of these dolls is amazing!
