Singing in the Rain

Trying to photograph things in natural light in the Pacific Northwest is pretty much a crap shoot even on a good day.  Last week, we enjoyed days and days of 90 degree weather and loads of sunshine.  This week it’s 62 and what else…rain.  I would have shot this last week, if I had had what I wanted to shoot last week.  Unfortunately, I didn’t receive the item I wanted to shoot until this week.  Here was my perfect location…

Loved the natural texture of this and the green moss that spindled out like vines.  But…

It was rather wet.

And not looking like it was going to change any time soon.  So what do you do?  You change your shoot location and make the best of it.  So this is the rain part of the title so where is the singing?

Have you ever had that moment when you dressed a doll in something and it just “sang”? You know what I mean right?  It just makes you go “ Oh man…that looks so amazing on her!”  I had that happen this week and while my first choice for background did not pan out, I found a couple alternate solutions that worked out just fine.  I was still singing even though it was raining.

This gown is gorgeous!  Very well made and tailored.  It arrived quickly and well packaged.  Love this vendor on Etsy and have purchased a number of things from them.

Integrity Toys 2015 Convention “Cinematic” Part 1- The Convention Collection

I was thrilled to attend this years Integrity Toys convention.  It was held in Long Beach, CA  and the hotel was situated directly across from the water overlooking the Queen Mary.  There were many, many fun places to eat and shop and a bonus for me was the opportunity to be treated and taken to a lovely brunch on the Queen Mary by  some amazing and generous friends.  { Hugs to Jim and Brian! }

This years convention was not marked with the drama of “delayed in customs” containers.  The convention collection was a mixture of old and new Hollywood glamour that held mostly true to the “Cinematic” theme.

Amazing right?!!  In hindsight, and in my humble opinion, this should have been the convention doll.  You will understand this more when you see photos of the actual convention doll.  It was a giftset, it was Agnes, and it was an anniversary year for Integrity Toys ( 20 years in business).  This would have been a convention doll worthy of the theme and company that produced it.  Again…just my opinion.

Star power indeed!!  The inspiration for this one is none other than Marilyn Monroe from “Gentleman Prefer Blondes”.

A gorgeous adaptation!  Wish they had done the hat and muff too.

Not sure who the inspiration was for this one.  I have seriously OD’d on ladies in black gowns from Integrity Toys so I gave this one a pass.

Not sure if there is a movie tie in to this one…perhaps Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct?  That was my first thought when seeing her but who knows.  The accessories are glorious and the sleek short hair works on this Giselle.  Nice to see Nu Face making an appearance too.

Cinematic?  Yep, I wasn’t seeing the tie-in either.  The dress was very cute though and this Erin’s face is beautiful.  The accessories had me thinking about purchasing but in the end…she was a pass. 

Will go into Convention exclusives in next post……
