How many ball jointed doll owners reading this pose/re-pose their doll(s) once a week? How about every day? Ahhhhh…. another junkie after my own heart. It is addictive. Of course proximity helps a lot. I have a “cubbie” in my staircase in which I place recently finished furniture pieces along with my doll Angie, providing the perfect opportunity to mess with her. Occasionally, she gets into such a charming pose it simply must be retained for some time, but it’s a fun exercise in her best trait…..that would be being more limber than I am.
She looks a bit lost on this settee for 24″-26″ dolls, but finds it extremely comfortable. She loves to relax in style. I confess, playing with her and all the accessories, and then the big photo shoot, is more fun than I can say. If you’ve followed me for a while you might notice the new end table and lamp. (Click on any image to enlarge.)
I’m working on a post to show how I made it and will also provide information to DIY’ers, who might not have my workshop of tools, to create end tables that perfectly fit their dolls. The lamp is one of two new ones and I’ll bet no one can guess what the base is. Come on. Give me your best guess! It’s very heavy and about 50 years old. I found it at a local antique shop and with a pre-made shade, it’s just about perfect for dolls.
Of course, end tables and lamps, backdrops and carpets are only rivaled by fashionable seating like nothing else you can find in the known Universe (well that’s what I heard). Everyone knows that when Voyager sent back a message from deep Space after finding highly intelligent life deep in the galaxy, the message read “Send more Chuck Berry and Little Big Chairs!!!”. What more can I say? Photography and dolls are popular everywhere and accessories make it more fun!
Here are a few of the poses Angie came up with this time.
