You say Potato, I say Lightbulb

My entry for the Blythe Physical Challenge group on the theme of "I say Potato, you say Lightbulb'...  the catch with this group is that all photos must be taken in a public place!

I found this quite challenging and carried Blizzard around in my bag for 3 days before plucking up the courage! First I took her to the lighting section of a department store but a saleswo...

Childhood Memories

Posted on January 22, 2013 at 8:25 AM Comments comments (0)

I bought a job lot of dolls on the 'Bay a few days ago, not sure exactly what was among them but on unwrapping them I found it contained identical dolls to the first, and only, two Barbie dolls that I owned as a child!

The one on the right, with the blue eye shadow is identical to my first Barbie (whom I imaginatively named 'Barbie').  She originally wore a vest and shorts for joggin...

Snow Day!

Esmee and Josephine the Middies decided to venture out into the snow today (with a little encouragement!)...

It was rather deep... but I helped to extricate them (it was about this point that some teenage girls wandering past the gate were asking each other 'Why is she putting dolls in the snow!?'

I replied, probably rather too loudly that I was 'photographing them for a project' at which poi...

Avril On The Go!

I love to take my dolls out for photo shoots and to doll meets, but I've learned that it's no good just shoving your doll in your bag if you don't want to mar her gorgeous looks!  With this in mind I decided to order a bespoke doll case from Ruth Appelgren's Etsy shop Cherubcloset.  For a very reasonable price you can have a case specially made in your own choice of fabric in a size to suit your doll and embel...

Some Tangkou Doll Comparisons and Info

Posted on November 16, 2012 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (5)

I have been asked recently for more info n Tangkou dolls so here's a bit of info and comparison pics...

First of all, Liv and Barbie clothes are a good fit for Tangkou.  Barbie shoes will not fit, however, but Liv ones mostly will.  Careful with boots though, if they're tricky to get on and off sometimes Tangkou's foot can pop off inside the boot :o

As you can see the proportions of Tangkou and Liv are very similar...

Manufactured Pop Bands... Literally

Posted on November 15, 2012 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)

So it seems that the ranks of manufactured plastic pop artistes Justin Bieber, JLS and One Direction will be joined on the shelves by new mini Little Mix lookalikes...

Well, though I say 'lookalikes', the concensus seems to be that the dolls don't really do their namesakes justice.  Little Mix themselves look happy enough with them, though, but that may be due to the rumoured six-figure sum they received to have their likenesses used ;D
