Tulip Festival!

There is a tulip festival about to happen over at Bellissima Couture.  As many of you know, Hilda Westervelt( Bellissima Couture) and I are good friends and frequently collaborate on projects together.  I met Hilda through this wonderful world of collecting and I am so thankful every day for that friendship.  That’s why when we get to work together on something, it becomes extra special. 

Recently, Hilda and I worked on developing a set of fabrics for some of her divine fashions.  I came up with a tulip fabric that Hilda then helped me tweak to bring it into better scale with her fashions.  This is how the collaboration turned out.  I love working with my amazingly talented friends!

Loving Natalia

Here we are in the days preceding Valentine’s Day and I had a chance to photograph one of the new additions to the studio…Make Me Blush Natalia.  This doll is the second wave of the highly popular “Boudoir Collection” from Integrity Toys.  It’s designed by Jessy Ayala who is himself  a collector  and understands very well what his fellow collectors want.  His designs usually include accessories that go directly to the heart of what people like to collect.  This last capsule collection was no exception.

In 2019 pictures were released to WClub members…

She is definitely giving off the Hollywood starlit vibe.  I adored photographing her and using this chaise lounge that I had repainted and have had forever ( pullip petite luxury furniture).  She is the perfect model to convey romance for any Valentine’s Day.

Spring Fever–Sophisticated

Spring Fever-Casual

It’s a known fact that in the Pacific Northwest we many times don’t really see sunshine for months and months from November through February.  The holidays take up some of that time and normally we Pacific Northwesterners deal with it well during that time.  Once the holidays are over though…all bets are off.  I normally hit January with a hunger for the sun.  If the sun doesn’t come to us, I will invent it in my photos.  I’m bringing out the pastels and dreaming of sunshine!!

And because this is Versace inspired…I felt Agnes need to be in an ad campaign for them.

In The Palace

For those of you who follow my instagram feed, you have seen some of these images already.  It is not my intention to post images on Instagram first but sometimes it just works out that way.  If I am excited about a photo, sometimes I just can’t contain myself and have to share it immediately.  Sometimes there is just an image and no backstory or text/dialogue I want to share with it other than the image itself.  Instagram is a great platform for that.  If you don’t follow me there, consider it.  I share funny behind the scenes stories and pictures on my Instagram stories too.  My blog will still be the place to come when you want the full set of images on something and/or more information on what is in the picture.  Ok, now that public service announcement is out of the way….on to the pictures.

I had this amazing graphic a friend had sent me many moons ago and had used it in backdrops for Hilda and my sales table at Barbiecon.  I always love architectural drawings and wanted to see if it would work as a photo backdrop.  Thankfully..it did.

Elyse In The Palace

Model: Divinely Luminous Elyse from Integrity Toys

I felt like I needed an opulent set to go with this amazing dress from Rimdoll.  It is a wonderful interpretation of the Dior Robe Mexique from 1951.

Elyse wasn’t the only one at the palace the day of this shoot.  Dasha made an appearance as well.

Love this shirt long skirt combo.  Sooooo elegant!!  This miniature couture designer out of Vietnam is amazing.  I will tell you that his designs take a while to manufacture and arrive.  I can also tell you that while the wait was long, I was always happy with the product.

Poppy Breaks Out

Hello intrepid followers.  It feels like every time I try to get to the blog something blocks the path.  For the past month and a half it’s been mother nature and a pesky furnace that just doesn’t want to get with the program.  While snow is beautiful and it turns the studio into one big snow globe…it it isn’t heated, its no fun to be in there.  After some very stern language and a good furnace doctor…we are back in business in the studio. 

I took delivery of some new backgrounds recently for another product photography project and realized they work really well for doll photography as well.  The company is called Replica Surfaces.  They are kind of pricey for doll photography but might be worth the investment if you want easy to set up and sturdy.  I am not being compensated at all for this plug.  Just passing on information on a product that I have enjoyed using.

New doll in the studio!!  I recently received Rendez Vous in Rio Poppy Parker from the Mission to Brazil Poppy Parker collection.  The second I got her, I saw her in green.  I had recently seen a stunning Vanity Fair cover of Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong'o

And I was inspired by a dress by Rimdoll on Etsy.  Here is the product of that inspiration and a newly warm studio.

And because I was having fun with Photoshop, I decided to do some color variations including an early Valentines Day image.  Hope you enjoy.

Thank you all for you patience!  Looking forward to warmer days and a better relationship with my furnace.  I guess you could say we are currently in therapy .Winking smile
