Masquerade~ Part 8
Okay, everyone settle down so I can begin this post! XD
I bet you’re all super happy to see this, huh? I got a splurge of inspiration today and finally figured everything out for the rest of this story! I’m SO excited to get the rest of the story posted and I hope you’re all just as excited as I am! 😀
For the previous part, click here. I just wanna make sure you’re all caught up 😉
As I walked through the streets that warm summer day, I found myself lost in deep thought. Why did I ever leave? Yes, I was terrified, but couldn’t I at least have confessed? Couldn’t I have confided in her?
“Please don’t go, Edmund.” Her pleas rang clear as a bell in my mind. “I don’t want to, but I have to.” I had said. “But why? Can’t you just tell me?” She asked of me as tears filled her striking green eyes. “I can’t. I’m sorry.” Was my vague and ridiculous reply.
“Remember me.” She requested just before she turned to leave. I’ve always remembered you. But did she still remember me? Did she even spare the slightest thought for me, even after all these years of being apart?
I shook my head. There’s no way. But it was time for me to go back, time for me to face her and find out for sure.
“Good day, Edmund!” Nicole, a good friend of mine, greeted as she joined my pace.
“Hello, Nicole.” I greeted, forcing a smile. She was my friend, but I wanted to be alone for the moment.
“Is something wrong?” She inquired.
After what I had learned after leaving home all those years ago, I knew it was best for me to come clear. “I’m leaving, Nicole. It’s time for me to go home.” I admitted.
“And to see her again, right?” She asked with a knowing smile.
“It was wrong of me to leave her that way. It’s high time I face her and make up for my mistakes. I thought I could beat this on my own, but I realize I need her now more than ever.” I explained, my heart heavy.
“Well, I certainly wish you well, Edmund. Be safe.” Nicole bid with a friendly grin.
“Thank you. For everything.” Nicole had helped me through a lot these past years and I was eternally grateful to her.
Oooh! I wonder who Edmund could be….? ;D
I hope you liked this part! We’ll get to Liesel in the next installment 🙂
Stranger at the Park~ A Photostory
It was a warm, sunny day, so I decided to bring the kids to the park. Jess and Lana sat on a bench chatting. Or rather, Lana chatted and Jess didn’t pay much attention.
“…and then half an hour later, I saw Samantha dusting AGAIN! I’m telling you, she cleans way too much.” Lana observed, though Jess didn’t seem to notice her talking.
“Humph! I’ve been sitting here doing all the talking while you just sit there staring at nothing! I’d rather be talking to Josefina – even if she always blows her top with me, at least she would respond!” Lana grumbled, and still Jess didn’t say a word.
With a heavy, over exaggerated sigh, Lana leaped to her feet and walked away in a huff.
“Um, hi! You’re one of the girls from that huge family that lives on Daisy Street, right?” A strange girl inquired as she walked up to the bench Jess sat miserably on.
“Oh, yeah. You live across the street from us, huh?” Jess asked.
“Yeah, I’m still kinda new. We moved there in January. Uh, so, do you mind if I sit with you?” The girl wondered.
“Sure, it’s fine.” Jess replied.
“I’m Leia, by the way. What’s your name?” Leia introduced.
“I’m Jess. How old are you?” She asked.
“Oh, I’m 14.” Jess answered, turning her head away.
They sat in an awkward silence for a while, but Leia was determined to get to know her better. “Are you okay?” She inquired.
Jess sighed and closed her eyes. “No, I’m not.”
“Well, if you don’t mind me asking, what’s wrong?” Leia pressed.
“Today marks 6 years since my brother and sister died.” Jess struggled through the words, but she somehow managed to get them out without bawling.
“Oh. I’m so sorry.” Leia said, looking down at her compass.
“H-how did they die?” She inquired.
“In a terrible accident. A cave in.” Jess informed as she stared into space, her eyes wet with tears.
“That’s awful…. Couldn’t someone have tried to get them out?” Leia asked.
“They did, but it was too late.” Jess answered.
“Have you ever lost someone?” Jess inquired.
Leia turned her head and stared into open space. “No.” She answered simply.
“Well, I’d better be going. It was nice to meet you, Jess.” Leia said as she rose to her feet.
“It was nice to meet you, too, Leia. Maybe you could come over sometime?” Jess offered.
“Yeah, maybe. Well, bye!” Leia said with a smile.
Leia walked away and holding onto her compass, she said, “I’m not gonna lose you. I will find you.”
Hiii! I felt like making a photostory today and YAY! Now Leia is introduced! XD I know, it took me forever to introduce her, but I had other plans for her, but then things changed so I was able to make her introductory photostory at last! ;D
I hope you liked it! Have a great day!

My mom and I stayed with my gramma for a whole week and just got back on Saturday. I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to be HOME! *lets out a contented sigh*
While I was at my gramma’s house, I took a photoshoot of Leia in her beautiful backyard! There are a lot of pics, so get comfy! ;D
Told you that was a lot! XD
I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I had so much fun taking them- her backyard is amazing! 😀
I’m having a craving to make a photostory pretty soon here…. YAY! 😀

“I’m Going On An Adventure!”~ A Photoshoot of Leia
Hi guys! Or should I say girls? That always feels weird for me to say “Hi guys” when I’m speaking to girls XD
Anyway, today I went outside and took some photos of Leia. My camera was dying to be used (or I was dying to use my camera) and Leia was dressed all cute, so she was the one I chose for the photoshoot! Believe me, I did try choosing a different doll to take pics of, but Leia is my newest doll and she was calling to me 🙂
Okay, that’s enough talking now, let’s get on with the pictures! 😀
Doesn’t she look like she’s ready for an adventure? 🙂
Well, that’s all for today! I was really happy with how these pictures turned out and my camera continues to amaze me 🙂
Be sure to let me know which picture was your favorite! 🙂
Do you like pretzels? XD
P.S. One of those moments when I can’t think of a question to ask and have to go with something random. XD
Review of Lea’s Bahia Outfit & Photoshoot!
Hi everyone! The rain stopped so I was able to go outside and take some pictures today – YAY! 😀
I had a request to do a review of Lea’s Bahia Outfit, so here it is!
When I first saw the leaked photos of this outfit, I thought it was weird and just blah. But when I saw a picture of Lea wearing it, well, I pretty much died and I knew I had to take it home with me on the 1st. The colors of the shirt look absolutely amazing up against her skin and hair color! This is probably my favorite outfit from her collection 🙂
And also, when I saw the picture of Lea wearing this outfit, I knew I had to get her ears pierced so I could put those dangles on her when she wore this outfit! They look amazing with this outfit and I kind of feel like it’s a must for her to wear these with this outfit XD
The pattern of the shirt is so interesting and I love how it starts off yellow at the neck and then turns to pink! 😀
The sandals are really adorable and easy to get on. They Velcro in the back and you slip the foot through the loop. Piece of cake! 🙂
The shorts are the only thing I don’t like about this outfit. I’ve never really cared for the look of wearing a long sleeve with shorts and plus, these shorts are REALLY short. I wish AG would have made them a bit longer :/
So, I rate this outfit a 9 out of 10. I’m taking away one point because of the shorts. If they were longer, I probably would have given this outfit a 10 😉
And now, let us move on to the photoshoot!
I’m trying to decide if I want Leia to be a sister to the rest of my dolls or maybe start making my newer dolls be friends instead… What do you think?
This is probably one of my favorite photos 🙂
I also really like this picture! I think it looks so cool with her strands of hair flying in the wind 😉 😀
Well, that’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this photoshoot and review 🙂
What’s your favorite outfit from Lea’s collection?
A Comparison of Lea and Rebecca
Hi everyone! I’m so excited because it’s raining right now and it’s cold! I was just lying on the couch with a blanket and reading Lea Dives In – so far, it’s really good! It makes me kind of sad, though because of Lea and Zac’s relationship… Okay, let’s get back on track!
Today I thought I’d do a comparison of Lea and Rebecca. I didn’t realize how many similarities they had until I took them outside for some pictures. They would make some really great twins or even just sisters 😉
Aren’t they just adorable? So the first thing that’s the same about them, is that they both have the Josefina face mold. In my opinion, Lea’s face looks slightly chubbier and her lips also look bigger, but we’ll get into that later 😉
Here is Rebecca’s eye. She has a beautiful bright green hazel color with grey-ish brown and black stripes. Her eyebrows are basic.
This is Lea’s eye. They are a darker green than Rebecca’s and have lots more brown in them and she also has the black stripes. Lea also has a thick ring of black around her eye. Her eyebrows are thicker, similar to Grace’s and arched, which is new.
Here are Lea’s lips. They are painted mauve.
And these are Rebecca’s lips. They’re like a light peach almost. I think due to the darkness of Lea’s lips, it makes them look bigger than Rebecca’s because they stand out.
Here you can also see the difference in the skin color. Lea’s skin is tan and Rebecca’s is white.
Side view. Here, Lea’s skin looks similar to Kanani’s. I’ll have to compare their skin soon 😉
And finally, their hair! I had no idea that their hair color was so alike, and now I can definitely tell that Lea’s hair is brown. Lea’s hair goes down to her hips and is curly/wavy with light blonde and auburn highlights. Rebecca’s hair goes a little past her shoulders and is curly.
Even though they share the same color brown in their hair, I still have to say that Lea’s is slightly lighter than Rebecca’s which I believe is because of her light highlights.
So here’s a list telling how they are alike:
1. They both have brown hair, with Lea’s slightly lighter.
2. They both share the Josefina face mold.
3. They both have green hazel eyes, with Rebecca’s being much brighter.
As I stated earlier, I really think that Lea and Rebecca would make great sisters. Even though not everything is the same, they share many similarities 🙂
What are your thoughts on Lea and Rebecca? Do you think they look alike?
