HP Eugenia…More Redressing Fun

My camera and I don’t seem to be able to get enough of this lady in red so I have a few more shots to share from a day of  redressing  fun.  My favorite set out of the three redresses is directly below.  I love Hilda’s dress and the fact that Ms. Eugenia is waiting to enjoy a glass of wine and perhaps a picnic as if to celebrate the autumn season.   Fall or Autumn ( however you call it) is one of my absolute favorite seasons…it means the holidays are right around the corner.  I love the smell of leaves, the vibrant colors of the season and those crisp foggy mornings where shafts of sun ( if we see it at all in the Pacific Northwest) fight their way through the foggy curtain.   It’s a dreamy sort of light and feel and I just adore it. Hope you enjoy the photos.

And lastly…. a glimpse into the behind the scenes prop shop for this last week of photo shoots…

What's coming up ITFDS oct 2012


Imogen–Fame by Frame

Or…Frame by Frame as I called her initially and had to be corrected.  Frame by Frame would have been the perfect title for this post as I decided to do some redressing and additional photo shoots for the 2012 Fashion Royalty Convention doll Imogen.    I have to completely own up and say when I opened the box at the last nights convention dinner, I was underwhelmed.    The outfits were very modern ( not my general thing) and two out of the three outfits were coral red.  It was all a little one note for me.  I would have preferred a gown or even a swimsuit but not two dresses in the same color.  The doll just wasn’t doing anything for me in the box.  When I flew back home from convention a few weeks ago, this lady was  firmly on my “to sell” pile.  Then, I started seeing photos on flickr that had me rethinking ( yes Shuga…I mean you!).  I decided to debox and play.  I found that my first impression was…WRONG.  I am adoring this one and have endeavored to glam her up a bit for my shots.

Okay..so who here bought this outfit below and could never find a doll that looked good in it??  {{Rebecca raises her hand emphatically}}.  I adore this outfit but could never find anyone who looked good in it…until now.  Apparently the trick is to find a model with a tan!!

 And because I had to find the right evening look for this lady….I finally found someone who could wear the “Anemone” Christian Louboutin gown.  The oompaloompa doll it came on had to go.  Sorry folks.  I don’t mean to be disrespectful and if you have that doll and adore her…my apologies…but..to me she just looked like a bad spray tanning accident.  Ms. Imogen however, looked fabulous in it!!

Tropicalia Visits the Studio

The convention collection, convention doll and gift set doll are en route to Inside The Fashion Doll Studio but in the mean time…I did have a few dolls that came home with me and I was itching to pull out the camera and try out something the very talented photographer Deron Daniels shared with me at convention.
