Doll Photography and Blogging: The Set

This one is the fun one…or at least I think it is.  It’s about the diorama photos and all those little details.  If set building for a photo is not your thing…this might not be your favorite episode.  For me, this is the joy of what I do…creating that story and scene.  Hope you walk away with a new idea or way to make your photos or collecting more fun and meaningful.

The Elyse Chronicles: Red Sparrow

Ok…so I couldn’t just leave this Elyse with just a Barbie makeover shot.   I also wanted to show her in a more sophisticated look than the white and black sundress she came in.  I was having some difficulty coming up with a different look for her and received some inspiration from an unlikely place…the current book I was reading.

The Elyse Chronicles: The B Word

For this installment of the Elyse Chronicles and my homage to the 10th Anniversary Jason Wu dolls, I’m using the Nordstrom’s Elyse.  This doll was an exclusive release from the upscale retailer Nordstrom.

Ok come on….when the first images of this doll were released…even though many of us are Integrity Toys collectors…we all thought it…Barbie.

She looks a whole like like Miss Babs with the hairstyle and bright red lips, nails and toes.   Given that, I just had to do this next set of photos.  I just had to.

The Elyse Chronicles: La Vie en Rose

The first doll released from the Jason Wu 10th Anniversary collection was the La Vie en Bleu Elyse.  The option to purchase her was given to each 2016 Integrity Toys Convention attendee.

So in keeping with  the theme I started, since she came to us originally in an evening look, I thought to put her in a daywear look.  I looked no further than a new uber chic suit I received from Etsy designer and seller HoangAnhKhoi.

The Elyse Chronicles: Daywear to Nightwear

The Bergdorf Goodman Elsye in the navy pants and yellow and navy sweater is clearly a daywear look.  To me it is VERY Sonya Rykiel and while I loved the turban on the real life fashion, I don’t feel it translated well to 1/6 scale.

Perhaps the turban will be put to good use elsewhere in my collection…that remains to be seen but…I needed to transform this Elyse from daywear to eveningwear.

The Elyse Chronicles: Dior Inspiration

I shared on my Instagram story a little peek into this photo shoot. Many of my ideas for photos come from images I have seen and have been inspired by.  When I started thinking about doing a photo series on the 10th Anniversary Jason Wu dolls, my thought was to put them into fashions that were very different than the ones they originally came in.  The model for this next set of images is the first Net a Porter Jason Wu doll.  And no…I did not take the image below.  Wow is it blown out!  Come on Net a Porter…you can do better than this Winking smile©2017 Net a Porter

Have your eyeballs recovered from the retinal searage above?…LOL!

Since this lady came in a ball gown…my thought was to bring it down and put her in some day wear…but Dior daywear so…I guess it’s an elevated daywear look.
