Rain Is Now Falling~ A Photoshoot
Yesterday when I took my pictures of Belinda, it started raining! So I got Riven-Delle ready real quick, grabbed an umbrella and took a few pictures of her in the rain 😀
She looks so adorable, doesn’t she? 🙂
Isn’t the sky just beautiful?!
That’s all for this photoshoot! I’m planning to post a photostory soon, so stay tuned! 🙂
Meet Belinda :)
Yesterday, I went to the thrift store with my mom and sister. There were SO many dolls, it was amazing!! Although we had 6 dolls in our hands, I had to choose one to buy. Let me show you who I got – I’m so in love with her! 😀
Can you guess what doll she is? 🙂
If you guessed Karito Kids Leza, then you are correct! We got her for $6- a great price! She had so many marks on her and her hair was a complete mess! The ends of her hair are still not in the best condition, but with the way we styled it, you can hardly tell! 🙂
She didn’t come wearing any clothes, so I made this dress for her last night, since dresses go by more quickly and she just really needed some clothes on 😉
Look how nicely her legs can cross!! I love that!! She has a little trouble standing, though…
I named her Belinda (her nickname is Lindy) and she is 16 years old. The reason I made her so old is because she’s really tall- 22 inches!
Her head can be posed in so many different ways! Looking way up, way down, straight, side to side, or tilted! I love dolls with more movable heads 😀
At first I kept thinking she was cute, but now she has totally grown on me! She’s SO PRETTY!!
Her hair and eye color are so pretty!
In case you’re wondering, to get off all of the marks that were on her vinyl, I used Magic Eraser. There are still a few marks that won’t come off, though. I’ll probably try something else 🙂 And as for her hair, I washed it with shampoo and conditioner, combed it out and set her down to dry. Within a few hours, her hair was dry! My mom also cut her hair for me and styled it with her hair straightener. I wish her hair could’ve been longer, but apparently her previous owner gave her a really uneven hair cut 🙁
Her pretty hair 🙂
I LOVE this picture!! 😀
Oh, my goodness, it was so funny! Right when I took this picture and right when the sun came out, I felt a drop of water on my hand – it started raining!! There was a rainbow, too! I love rainbows 😀
And here is a height comparison of Belinda and Kaya. As you can see, Lindy is much taller! 🙂
They’re so sweet!! 😀
Have you ever heard of Karito Kids Dolls?
No More Braid!
Yep, today I finally decided to take out Riven-Delle’s braid! I think Emma kinda inspired me… 😉
So, I know I already did a photoshoot, and that Riven-Delle has been shown a lot, and that I’ve been doing a ton of photoshoots lately, but since I took out her braid- I HAD to take pictures of her hair styled! LOL! I will try to get another fun post up tomorrow! 🙂
So, I am a little annoyed because she has a really random wavy section of hair now, but I’m gonna try to make it go away! 🙂
Here’s the other side of her head – Aah.. So much better! Even though the wave is annoying, I’m still happy that I can actually DO her hair! 😀
Doesn’t the lighting in this picture look all fire-y? It doesn’t look that way outside, but there is a fire nearby and it smells pretty strong!
I love how you can get so many different pictures with the same pose! 😀
I really like how this picture came out! 🙂
Well’p, that’s all! I hope you enjoyed the photoshoot! 🙂
Would you rather keep Grace’s hair in the braid, or take it out?
Modern Day Pirate~ A Photoshoot
The other day, my mom, my sister, and I went on a little shopping trip. My sister showed me this amazing Duster Jacket (as she is calling it) and I totally died over it!! It was too much money to buy just because and I didn’t really need it (but I really wanted it, so it felt like a need LOL!), so my mom bought it for me to give me for my birthday! So, I decided to make a doll sized version of it! 😀
Clara was my model while I was making it, and she looked SO adorable in it, that she got to model it for the photoshoot! 🙂
Do you like it?? I think it came out great! It has two pockets, and the sleeves are cuffed up with buttons, too! Don’t you think it looks so pirate-y? I totally felt like a pirate when I tried mine on! 😀
Have a nice day! 🙂
The Disappearing Heirs~ Part 7 The Grand Finale!
Wowie! I didn’t realize it was time to end this series already! I really hope you all enjoy this part! I got really excited about it and I know you’re excited for it, too and that’s why I’m posting it tonight! Enjoy! 😀
“There he is.” Corinne whispered as softly as possible.
I looked where Corinne held her gaze and I saw a man frantically digging through dozens of papers and folders.
“Hey, Joshua. Still looking for that notepad?” Corinne asked jokingly as we stepped over to his desk.
“Corinne! What are you doing back here? I told you to leave!” Joshua shouted.
“And I did, didn’t I? And once I left I met up with a detective who’s on the hunt for you. You see, I’m working for someone else now.” Corinne stated.
“We’re both armed, so if you know what’s best for you, I’d give yourself up right now.” I said, trying to sound like a detective.
He laughed like a maniac and said, “Very well! Very well, I SURRENDER!!” He yelled at the top of his lungs as he raised his hands in the air. He seemed totally insane.
“I’ll keep an eye on him, you go get the heirs.” I told Corinne. She nodded her head and left.
“So, you got a family?” Joshua questioned with a sad look behind his eyes.
I inhaled deeply and said, “No. Not anymore. I was adopted as an infant and now my family is gone.” I explained and turned my head away. I hardly ever talked about my family, and it hurt to mention them.
Joshua’s eyes widened as he rose from his seat and stepped over to me. “Don’t get any ideas of attacking. As I said before, I’m armed.” I said firmly, though inside I was a little frightened.
He pushed my hair away and his jaw dropped.
“After all my searching, I’ve finally found you!” Joshua exclaimed
“Ummm.. What are you talking about?” I questioned slowly.
“You might want to sit down.” He said gently and pulled me to his chair.
“Alright, I’m sitting. Now, what are you talking about?” I asked again.
“Many years ago, in a faraway kingdom, a stable boy fell in love with a princess, and she loved him, too. Later they were married, even though the king and queen did not approve. After a few years of marriage, the stable boy, who was now a prince, had to go away for a long time to battle off their enemies.” Joshua explained, but I wasn’t understanding why he was telling me a fairy tale.
“What on earth does this have to do with answering my question?” I asked, getting frustrated.
He ignored my question and went on, “While the prince was away, the princess gave birth to a newborn girl, but the princess died shortly after her child was born. When the prince rushed back at the news of his wife and newborn daughter, he was informed by the princess’ parents, that his daughter was sent away to an orphanage and they would not tell him where. And because he wasn’t royalty to start with, they had him sent away, never to return. He was no longer a prince.”
Just then, Corinne entered the room and said, “Alright, you ready, Allie?”
Although I kind of wanted to hear how this fairy tale would end, I rose from my seat and said, “Well thanks for the story, but we need to get moving.”
“Wait, I just need to tell you one more thing! That prince in the story is me. And you have the same birthmark as the princess, my wife!” He said, raising his voice.
“What are you talking about? Do you even grasp how insane you sound?” I shouted.
He sighed and said gently, “Like a mad man I’m sure. But Allie, I am your father.”
I’m sure you can all guess that there will be a second season and you are correct! It’ll start VERY soon! 😀
The Disappearing Heirs~ Part 6
After thinking for a bit I ran after Corinne. “Hey, wait up!” I shouted and Corinne spun around to face me.
“Allie!” Corinne exclaimed with surprise. “I didn’t expect you to come.”
“Well, I’m not exactly coming…” I began then continued, “I want you to come with us. Monica is just in a bad mood and I have a pretty strong feeling that she was gonna come your way once you were well out of sight.”
“No thanks, Allie. Monica and I don’t get along so well anyways.” Corinne said.
“Well, couldn’t you at least try to work it out? We’re all going the same way anyways, so we might as well go together.” I said hopefully. Corinne smiled. “Very well, I’ll come along.”
Even though Corinne had agreed to come with us, we still lost a lot of time. It took quite a while to convince Monica to allow Corinne to come along – and lead the way. I can’t tell you how relieved Katrina and I were when they shook hands and said, “Let’s get going.”
At last we came upon a large deserted warehouse. “This is it. We’re gonna have to work together and be extremely quiet if you want to survive in there.” Corinne explained softly.
Katrina put her arms around Monica and whimpered behind her. “Alright. Allie, you need to stay here with Katrina.” Monica ordered.
“What? No, I’m going in there! I didn’t come all this way just to be Katrina’s body guard!” I said.
“Katrina is an heir. She needs to be protected and I need to go with Corinne to collect him, so you need to stay here with Katrina.” Monica stated firmly.
“Well, why can’t Katrina come, too?” I argued.
“Monica, perhaps Allie should come. I’m sure Katrina would be fine here alone.” Corinne offered.
Katrina turned her head towards Corinne. “No, no, no.” She whimpered. Monica was silent for a bit and then said, “Alright, Allie. You go with Corinne and Katrina and I will wait here for the both of you.”
“But, Monica, you’re the detective! You should be there to nab him!” I said, now thinking that she should go and I should stay.
“It’s okay, Allie. If you want a job in the detective agency, then you’re gonna have to learn how to catch the ones we’re after.” Monica explained.
I didn’t know what to say. Would she really give me a job if I did well? “Thanks, Monica.” I said gratefully.
“Good luck, you two.” Monica whispered.
Corinne opened the door and I followed after her. We were in.
That ends part 6! Part 7 coming soon! 😀
The Disappearing Heirs~ Part 5
After walking for several miles, we finally made it to the train station. Unfortunately, the train we needed had already begun moving, so we had to chase after it and jump on. Not fun at all. We were on the train for six days and hardly any of us spoke a word. “So, where did you come from, Allie?” Corinne asked, breaking the uncomfortable silence.
“Oh, I’m from California. I have a lot of farm animals and I must admit that I am worried about them.” I replied simply. I honestly didn’t feel much like talking.
“And what made you join up with Detective Jones?” Corinne questioned.
“Well, I found a package on my porch and it led me to Monica and Katrina. I never really felt like anything special, and when Monica told me I had to come, I agreed. I thought it might be a good opportunity for me to possibly find a job…” I said, looking at Monica. But she didn’t move. I didn’t even think she heard me.
“We should get off the train now.” Monica said, rising to her feet.
Corinne scooted over to the window and peered out. “Hmmm…. Yeah, we could jump off now.” Corinne said thoughtfully. I noticed Monica roll her eyes. Corinne and Monica didn’t get along so good. They disagreed about almost everything and I believe that’s why things felt so awkward.
“Wake up Katrina, Allie.” Corinne ordered.
I looked over at Katrina who was sleeping peacefully. “Why do I have to do this? I don’t like having to wake people up!” I said to myself. I stepped closer to her and tapped her on the shoulder.
“What happened?” Katrina asked suddenly and loudly. “Um- nothing happened, you just need to wake up.” I replied.
Katrina slowly stretched herself across the seat. “I don’t wanna get up!” She moaned.
“Hurry up! We need to jump off now!” Monica said with frustration.
We finally managed to get Katrina off of the train, but we really just got into more trouble.
“We should head back this way.”
“We need to go this way.” Monica and Corinne said in unison.
“Excuse me?” Monica asked with a tone of annoyance.
“I’m sorry, Monica, but we need to go that way.” Corinne stated.
“Monica, maybe we should listen to her.” I said, joining the conversation.
“No, we need to head back because we took too long to get off.” Monica replied to Corinne. They stared at each other for the longest time. Monica was angry and Corinne looked frustrated.
“So, are we gonna get going?” Katrina asked.
“I’m waiting for her answer!” They shouted at the exact same time.
“Look, Monica, I’m the only one here who knows where he’s hiding. If you want to find him, then you need to follow me.” Corinne explained.
“Well, you must be confused, because we should have gotten off of that train several miles back. So, we need to go back.” Monica pointed out.
“That makes no sense. If we had gotten off back there we would’ve been heading this way, not going back. If we were going back, that would take us back to the train station! We need to go forward!” Corinne yelled.
“Fine. You go your way and I’ll go mine.” Monica said. I don’t think she heard a word of what Corinne had said.
“Very well. If that’s how you want it.” Corinne said, but I knew she was disappointed.
“Whoever would like to join me is welcome to.” Corinne added and then walked away.
We all watched her for a few moments. I couldn’t believe Monica was being so ignorant! She just had to be right.
“You can go with her, Allie. I know you want to.” Monica said seriously.
I thought for a moment. Should I really leave Monica and Katrina to go after Corinne? Or should I stay with them and let Corinne go alone? Either way, I’d be being a bad friend to somebody….
That concludes part 5! I was gonna do more, but that would’ve been REALLY long! I hope you enjoyed this part! 😀
After The Rain~ A Photoshoot
I completely forgot to post these pictures and I took them a few weeks ago 😛

Okay, so I know I’ve been doing a few photoshoots lately, but when I took pictures for the previous part of The Disappearing Heirs, Riven-Delle looked SO pretty, I just had to take some pictures of her! 😀
Oh, and yes, the title of this photoshoot comes from the credits song in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. It’s called “The Last Goodbye” 🙂
