Lilith the Muse

Many collectors have face mold favorites.  Many photographers have favorite models.  For me as a collector and photographer, I can honestly say there are some dolls that seem to draw the lens and some that don’t.  Great Pretender Lilith was  and continues to be one of my favorite models.  As collectors we also have those dolls that we go back and forth on as to whether we should purchase.  I knew I loved the face on this doll.  Her outfit was not my cup of tea though.  I decided to go ahead and get her because I loved the soft makeup palette.  I am so glad I made that purchase. I decided to put her hair up in a simple updo.  She has such a regal high fashion look with the hair change.  I adore it.

But those were the only ones…then found some more hot pink shots.  Too funny.

Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi

Since I am getting back into the swing of things blog wise again, I thought it was well past time to do a Bogue’s Vogues Vendredi.    In the past couple of years, I have been approached  a few times to submit photos to publishers to help them pitch a book for production.  I was approached last year to submit some photos for a book being considered to highlight James Bogue’s work.   While the book idea may have not come to fruition this time around, James’ inspiring work is most definitely worthy of it.  Here were some of my submissions.

Reverence for the Repaint…Part II

Here is the third and final repaint I received from from the amazing repaint artist Jon Copeland.  She was originally a Suite Retreat™ Barbie® Doll.

Redressed Principessa

I am happy to have received this one and shared some much needed photographs.  I love the fact that when Mattel fails to come through with information or images, the collector community steps forward and supplies what it can.  Case in point, it looks like those of us who have received this doll first, are posting photos for those who are hungry for more information.  Kudo’s to the collector community for “marketing” this doll. 

For those of you interested in what this lady looks like redressed and  what is happening under that veil…here you go.

The braid is not too bad.  I am not real happy with how it is left on the side of her face without being tucked in somewhere.  I wish it went all the way over and under the other side.  That would have been a cleaner look in my opinion.  As it stands though it is not horrific…just could be better.  You can tuck the little end of the braid into the surrounding hair but you will still see the bulky rubber band that secures the braid at the end.  Solution….photograph from the left….or..you could just do away with the braid all together.  I think I might do that at some point in the future.  For today, however, I just put on my big girl pants and dealt with it.

I thought the hairstyle of this one was perfect for a 1950’s shirtwaist from Mr Bogue.  I put holes in her ears ( nope..she does not come with predrilled holes) and inserted some pearl studs.  Now she looks finished. 


Unexcused Absence…

I have been tardy from the blog and I admit it.  There are good reasons for it , I promise.  For the past three weeks, I have been busy prototyping some items that I am hoping to sell at Barbie convention and through the blog (Etsy shop still being set up) as well.   While I can’t show many of the items yet, they are all in stages of doneness in my laundry room…I offer up some sneak peeks at the end of this post.  In the meantime, I decided to put Miss Poppy in the window for a photoshoot inspired by the beautiful spring green color that is popping up(LOL! pun intended) all around the Pacific Northwest right now.  Spring has sprung in the garden…and in the studio as well.

The piece above was repainted by a very talented artist I am proud to call a friend.  There will be more about her and her work in a future post.

ITFDS is finally back online!!

Hello loyal readers.  First off..I have to say I am sorry.  I had every intention of posting every Friday but did not factor in how unreliable my Wi-Fi would be while traveling.  In retrospect, I should have hung my “Gone Fishing” sign up and left it at that.  Live, Learn.  Happily I was able to post travel photos to my Flickr while we traveled ( it was a slow and painful process though) so for those who followed along on that, I am happy you enjoyed them.  Thank you for all your comments!  They were much appreciated.

We had the most amazing time journeying through Europe and my mind is absolutely bursting with new diorama ideas.  I will be working on those in the coming months along with some new doll related business ventures ( more info to come….).  For now, I will post some of the photos I had lined up to share while I was traveling.

It’s Two for Tea at ITFDS

I really should have released this blog post at around 3 or 4 PMish for tea time right?  I have been saving these photos for a couple weeks to share here because I knew I would be tied up with dance recital photos  this week and too busy  to do anything in the doll studio.  I had WAY too much fun with the conservatory diorama and decided to set up afternoon tea for a couple of Silkies.  I hope you enjoy.

Models:  City Smart ( yes {gasp!} she is deboxed) and Showgirl Silkstone Barbies

Gowns: Luncheon Ensemble Silkstone – City Smart and Bogue’s Vogues (http://www.etsy.com/shop/boguesvogues) – Showgirl
