My love / hate relationship with Antoinette

Once upon a time not so very long ago, I bought my initial Antoinette doll.  When she arrived I was not very enamoured with her, as she looked sullen and I found her difficult to photograph.  I tried to persevere with her and took lots of photographs to find out how best to model her, but I still couldn’t feel the love for her and she was mainly left to one side.   She is “Wanton Antoinette”.

When I was tempted by another Antoinette I was torn as to whether to buy her.  Yes, she looked fantastic in the advertising pictures but would she look so good ‘in the flesh’ so to speak?   I went ahead and bought this one too, and she is “Wilful Antoinette” and that is when my love for her sparked.

I can now admit to being fully in love with this young lady and tend to photograph one or another Antoinette every day.  It is strange how a doll lover can look at a doll and see their individuality and build a relationship with them isn’t it 🙂   See more:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonner_etc/
