Portraits 2014

The annual portraits have got off to a good start and as long as the enthusiasm continues they should not take more than a couple of months or so to complete.

Considering that it takes a full day to sort out twenty outfits, another full day to sort out shoes & jewellery and at least one day to dress and style the 20 ladies it can be a thankless task.

Some of the portraits are shown on:

Doll Room

My doll room used to be very organised with boxed Barbie doll & friends lining the walls from floor to ceiling.  Undressed dolls, or dolls waiting for TLC , are stored in a chest of drawers and two wardrobes.

When the larger dolls started to arrive it was fine, they slotted in amongst the Barbie dolls, but I soon began to run out of space and I now have no room left other than a narrow walkway.

The doll room doesn’t have all of the doll boxes, backdrops, accessories and items for dioramas, they are filling up another room.  This photograph should embarrass me into thinning down my collection…

Welcome Home

It has been a very busy day with new arrivals during the morning.

Vida (Ultra Basic Gothic Tyler) was held up at the airport but finally managed to get away yesterday, and spent the whole of the night travelling.   I have discovered that she is the Queen of the Coven being run by High Priestess Eleanor, so I hope to get some more photographs of them when they invite me again.

Ellis and Jacob (My Scene Ellis & River) arrived together, and Jacob is looking forward to meeting up with his twin brother Joshua, who arrived a few days ago.  They have clubbed together to buy a Vespa black Italian scooter, and look forward to having a ride out and also hope to impress the girls.

Flynn (Tron) didn’t have much to say, and seemed to be shattered from his journey.  He has been left to his own devices until he is a bit more approachable:-)

Ben (Ron Weasley, Harry Potter) has returned from his camping trip, and both his sisters Iona and Marley, were pleased that he is back.  They haven’t told him about ‘Steed’, the Shetland Pony, yet as they want him to settle In first.  Marley’s best friend Hermione was one of the first to greet him, though his best friend Dorian wasn’t home today.

The final two ladies, also best friends, were Peri (Checkmate Jonquil) and Nicole (Basic Jonquil). They both looked amazing even though they had travelled quite a distance by road.  Peri wore a red wig styled in an updo, with a mint green knee length dress, whilst Nicole had her long hair tied back and wore a floaty pink & white summer dress.
