A Doll A Day Challenge 2018
« on: January 01, 2018, 01:52:05 PM »
Sooooo....

I loved oogling the last thread, and I think it would be awesome if this challenge became a tradition here at MHA. So, inspired by Scarlett and her photos, I'm going to give it a shot. I'm afraid that it will be a success if I keep this up for week, but hey, I'm never gonna complete a challenge if I don't even try. So here I am. I also thought that it would be nice to have photos of all my dolls, so I'm using it as an excuse to do this challenge. Let's see how far am I going to make it...

ETA: Here's the link to the 2017 challenge thread: http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,13456.0.html

Day 1



Pullip Lunatic Queen, I call her Her Insane Majesty The Lunatic Queen Isadora Malvolia The Very First. She insisted on the 'Very First', although Alura was my first Pullip (but I'd get Her Insane Majesty as first, were she in stock back then).

Fun! I was hoping there would be a 2018 challenge! :D Letís see if I can stick it out this year, lol.

Day 1: Hereís Lagoona in the wedding ensemble I sewed last year:

I realized that I had never gotten around to posting her here on the Arena. ^_^;

Neon_jellyfish: Beautiful shot! Her Majesty looks like sheís feeling smug about getting the first photo of the year. X3

Here's my first one!



Since I don't have many dolls yet, you'll be seeing the same bunch a lot.

Well, I may be a day behind but I full intend to participate this year. One of my goals is to get back into photography and enjoy my current collection with doing so. Pictures begin tonight!

OH and great work everyone! <3

Day 2: With as cold as itís been in Michigan, Iím really, really looking forward to spring. On that note, hereís Ember hiding in the flowers. X3


WOW!! How did you make that?!? Sheís so pretty :0 did you go off a pattern? wow... I want you to know itís your fault Iím buying DotD lagoona now  :D

Aww, thank you! ^_^ I used DGRequiemís Ball Gown pattern for the dress (her patterns are amazing, btw; I definitely recommend them!). There are some little alterations, and the veil and beading were my own design. :) The petticoat (you canít see it in the photo, but itís giving the skirt some volume and support) was based off of a tutorial for a human-size petticoat... just scaled down, lol.

Oh, and thatís a great look for Clawdia! ^_^ Love the reroot!

Excellent start to the new year everyone!  I love seeing dollie photos, and the different things that people do with props & poses.

I "burnt out" last year doing the Doll a Day Challenge, so won't be participating daily this year.  However, I was thinking a Pic-a-Week, so I can still participate in the thread.

Plus I'll be here waving teeny-tiny pompoms at all the participants!!  I know how tough it can be to do daily photos (just thinking up ideas was the killer for me  :blush:).

I totally love this dress! Griselda looks almost ethereal in it. You inspired my next sewing project.  :blush:

Here's a photo of GiGi, who I bought just today!



Maybe tomorrow I'll try getting out someplace to take some nice outdoor photos of dolls, I hate doing photos in my bedroom due to the poor indoor lighting (I used flash in today's photo in an attempt to get it looking better), plus I can't really do many interesting photos in my own room.

eahseamstress - it is a beautiful piece. It's a spare dress she comes with. I usually keep her in her 'main' outfit, because I like that somewhat dark circus look, but I love this one, too. I can't wait to see your take on it!

Beatles - I like how girly and sweet your photos are. I think outside photos are great idea!

Day 4



The ghoul who started it all. Sig Frankie was the first MH doll I've seen pics of, and I immediately fell in love with her. It was through her that I discovered Monster High. She was also the one to make me break my one-doll-per-character rule.

I decided to go army by army, so it's going to be Frankie for the next few days.

Day 3: In honor of all the New Yearís celebrations, here are Chiyo and Mirai joining in the festivities (Happy New Year Barbiesó1st and 2nd Editions).


Day 4: Lily Fair from Rose Petal Place, sitting on a mushroom. X3 Springtime-ish again, so Iíll even things out with a wintery photo tomorrow, lol.


NOTE: Please let me know if my photos are loading slowly for you... Iím getting mixed results from different devices. :/

Oh, and thank you everyone for the kind comments! :)

Beatles: Congrats on your new dolly! ^_^ I love how her outfit shows off her tattoos and sculpted details!

modernmonsterhigh: Ooh, that reroot is beautiful! What type of fiber did you use?? And Iím always happy to see GR Clawdeen! Sheís one of my all-time faves. ^_^

neon: Thatís a gorgeous shot of Griselda... Her eyes look so vivid, itís haunting! Frankie looks very striking as well... I envy your photography skills!

Nemesis I love love love those barbies.. they remind me of Mulan for some reason lol. I use a few brands.. my Viperine and Clawdia reroot have one base color and I think they are red heart yarn? Or an acrylic yarn. Yeah they feel like that.. Rochelle has very soft hair which unravels easily. Itís held together by a thread twirling it around. I think it is either cotton or wool. Not sure. Sorry I wasnít much help :( Iíll see if I can find the brand by looking it up. I got rochelleís from Walmart. Iím sure the others are acrylic though. Yeah :) I want to get her in box though again since this oneís hair is poofy at the ends haha

So I went out to take photo today!



Do photos we post have to have been taken that day? I took a bunch of photos today of five different dolls, so I want to use some more that I took today for the next few days.
