the boys run away…

  • Posted on October 1, 2012 at 4:27 pm

today was the first of several photo days to try and get my etsy store up and running. the little girls were fairly cooperative, i think it helped that it was kind of like playing dress up for them, trying on lots of pretty dresses then twirling in front of the camera, but noah and tumnus ran away to look for boys to play with. “too many frills!” they exclaimed

noah and tumnus

tumnus is a lot less cooperative since he got his new curly wig and dropped the “mr” he now looks and acts much more like a little boy than a grown elf. noah who also got new curlier hair likes the change since it gives him a boy closer to his age, instead of just girls!

mr tumnus and the fairy fluff
mr tumnus is a gentle soul who loves to quietly explore his world, preferring nature to the busyness of city life. but after all if you were only 4 inches tall wouldn’t you prefer gardens too, even wild ones?

amber and crystal also return from the spa

  • Posted on August 14, 2012 at 5:06 pm

amberglas and crystalorn had been playing a bit too hard and had had scratches and chips on their faces. so when skylar arrived and needed to go to the spa, they decided to make a girls day of it and get “prettified” with her. there was a lot of giggling involved and it took a lot longer to do three squirmy little girls, but it did keep skylar from being scared and amber and crystal were very happy with the results
amberglas new look
crystalorn reborn
i was happy that they retained their unique “selves” through the transformation

if at first you don’t succeed, sky diving probably isn’t the sport for you… 😉

skylar unveiled

  • Posted on August 12, 2012 at 12:28 pm

we just got back from holidays and here is the first picture of skylar/pio. i’ll get more up when i get more edited but i have over 500 pictures to go through! this will be her hair color, but she has blue/green eyes coming to match her big sister ananda, and apparently i went overly subtle on the freckles for this last bunch of faceups because they are almost impossible to photograph. of course it is threatening to rain again today so i have time to decide if i want to enhance them. anyway meet skylar…

painting painting and more painting…

  • Posted on August 2, 2012 at 11:57 pm

i’ve been do, and redoing faceups all week. the weather, as it has been all summer, has not been the best for it, either raining or threatening to rain so that even when i think it is dry enough i’ve been struggling with bubbly msc. on the bright side i’m getting lots of practice doing faceups!

this was the week of the pukifee. skylar (pio) needed her first. here she is unpainted
pio unpainted 3
amberglas had a badly chipped chin and crystal somehow managed to chip off most of her upper lip paint when i wasn’t looking, so they decided to keep skylar company and make it a girls day out. except it turned into most of the week and crystal and noni aren’t quite done.

oh yeah, noni. noni has a great personality but the white skin really bothered me and never fit in with the other kids. i struggled with whether to adopt her out and get a normal skin ante to replace her, (but then she would be too close to crystal), reshell her as a bonnie or dye her. two weeks ago digory (my other ws) got a makeover and now sports a lovely tan, but it took 3 days, 2 dye baths, 3 cans of msc and a LOT of fiddling. so i decided not to try it with a pukifee. so that left adopting her out and trying a different doll.
then i had the idea of playing up the white skin and repainting her as a ghost or a dryad. so noni was wiped down and joined the others at the spa. her faceup is almost complete and i’m loving her new look so far. it’s going to require a different wig and eyes completely so she might not be done for a while yet but i think she will be a keeper. she’ll also get a new name and character. so noni as such will actually go on holidays and come back some time in the distant future as a bonnie i think.

to be continued…

ember and shaelyn

  • Posted on July 7, 2012 at 2:16 pm

here’s a quick comparison of ember and shaelyn, taken together ’cause someone commented that the girls looked a lot alike. when you see them together the similarities are mostly superficial – they both have heart shaped faces, but not much else the same.
ember and shaelyn

they haven’t been getting a lot of camera time lately. both of them are on really gimpy bodies that need fixing but i’ve had a lot of time and health issues this year and haven’t been able to attend to theirs. hopefully we will get that cleared up one of these days, because they both are lovely girls and deserve more time.

dinosaur provincial park

  • Posted on June 30, 2012 at 1:12 pm

we took a trip to dinosaur provincial park yesterday, en route to the dinner theatre at rose bud. it wasn’t really on the way but we made a days outing of it and they weren’t that far apart. we’d were planning to do a bit of photo touting and hiking. at our first stop we saw three of these up close and personal
why we didn't go hiking today
so decided against the hiking.
although they weren’t in the least aggressive, the bush was dense and we weren’t sure what they would be like if we accidentally stepped on one!

noah found a cool rock to climb up on instead

mr tumnus and the fairy mushrooms

  • Posted on June 26, 2012 at 11:09 pm

we been out off-roading this week. several of the kids have come along and we had great plans for lovely photo shoots in the woods, unfortunately it as been pouring rain. now this makes for wonderfully fun off-roading and glorious sprays of muddy water as we drive through huge puddles, but it is not great for picture taking and most of the kids refused to get out of the jeep at all! mr tumnus had a sharp eye out and spyed some lovely fairy mushrooms that he just had to have for dinner. i managed to get a quick shot of him, dripping with rain and a little muddy, just about to pick a nice basket full.

amber and crystal travel to drumheller

  • Posted on June 1, 2012 at 10:24 am

amber and crystal went exploring in drumheller on the weekend. they found a cave, but decided it was a bit too dark and scary so they sat in front to “admire the view”

amber was disgusted to find out the popcorn mud is used to make the base of toothpaste

crystal did a bit of exploring on her own so missed the toothpaste conversation
