If you do, I want to see it. XD

To be honest, her Sweet 16 updo always makes me think of Elvira when I see it.

Sweet 1600 was exactly the doll that came to my mind when I read your post!  :biggrin:

Day 288



Smearing filters on photos is so much fun! Here's the original pic (which I prefer, despite having fun with the previous one):

Day 289



I realized that I haven't posted any photos of my MH Vinyls (except for one with FT Frankie), so here's Frankie, I think it's blurry, but since I have a migraine (again  :argh:), I can't really see...

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

neon, I ADORE your Day 285 group shot! Shows just how expressive MH Ghouls can be! Such fun.

And sorry to hear those pesky migraines are at work again. Thanks for keeping up with the Challenge despite them, I'm really enjoying your pics!

neon, also meant to include your Dark Queens in my adoration! And your write-up about them was very interesting.

There's a French photographer & environmentalist named Yann Arthus-Bertrand who did a series of books, people and their livestock. He used a backdrop, and to me his work in that series has a similar feel to yours in this thread. Thought you might like to check him out. Be sure to add 'livestock' to your google search...the man's prolific in alot of areas.

Day 285

I didn't know what to do for today's photo, and wasn't in the mood to think about it too much, as I had to take kitty to the vet (she's OK now, she has UTC, but she got antibiotics and meds to suppress symptoms, so she's not in pain). So I did the 'first stupid idea' thing again. I decided to take a group shot of my dolls with twintails. ...I didn't quite realize I had so many... They didn't fit in one shot, so I changed it to characters that have twintails as signature style. Then I narrowed it to loose twintails, no buns or braids (Her Insane Majesty was very upset, because this was her chance to get featured two days in a row; I had to promise her extra photo to make up for this one). Now they fit!



I have no idea what they're talking about...

I just love interacting group shots  <3
This one is beautiful Neon.
I've missed many awesome pictures, it was such a delight to catch up on this thread.

DogMom - thank you! Yann Arthus-Bertrand's work is indeed very interesting! I really like those pictures where humans interact with their animals beyond just 'posing'. I love this kind of old-school textured backgrounds, I've been thinking about somehow getting or making my own (after this challenge - it's keeping me busy as it is).

nassib - thank you very much!

Day 293

I didn't know what to do for today's photo, so it's the first-stupid-idea-that-comes-to-my-mind time!

I have a huge and very soft spot for everything paranormal and spooky and dark, and I absolutely love things like 'Top 10 Real Ghosts Caught on Camera' compilations on youtube. The stories usually go along the lines of "XY kept hearing strange noises for a few weeks, then one night, when they were completely, totally alone (several credible witnesses can attest to that) at home (without any lights on, apparently), they grabbed a potato, pointed it in totally nonsensical direction, and later, when they had the photos developed, they made a chilling discovery - there was a ghost of a little girl with dark, drooping hair and an old-fashioned white nightgown on the photo! Several even more credible (but uncredited) experts have looked at photos and swear they haven't been tweaked in any way!"

So anyways, as I was binge-watching 'real ghost' videos on youtube, I felt like I was being watched (I swear it wasn't my cat hypnotizing me to fill her bowl). I glanced out of my balcony door. Nothing was in there, but I felt an odd chill (yes, it was evening in mid-October, but still), so I grabbed my trusty potato and took a snap of my balcony, because doing so totally made sense, riiiiight? And this is what I captured! I had experts from FBI, CIA, MI6, BIN and MIB thoroughly examine the photo and they said that it's 1500% genuine! I caught a real ghost on camera!

Day 294

I'm so under the weather today, like, six feet under... So just a quick blurry snap of a terribly under-rated ghoul, with filter to make whatever imperfection that's in there look fully intentional.



And, as always, the non-prettyfied one:

neon, that filter you used with Frankie is awesome! Love the scratchiness! And how funny you captured a REAL LIVE GHOST on your 'potato'!!! But where's her white nightgown??? (scratching head)   :haha:

Glad you checked out Yann Arthus-Bertrand's work and liked it. I think his portraits of the animals and their humans are so special, very intimate. Good luck on your background-making!

I've always loved Jane Boolittle!! I actually like the non-filtered pic best, the filter loses her lovely purple face....

DogMom - thank you! I need to make my dolls some white nightgowns to take proper real ghost photos  :biggrin: That 'scratched' filter comes with Kalos Filter app (on Android).

Day 297

New arrivals! Pullip Laura and Taeyang Black Butler Sebastian - the Book of Circus version.

High key isn't my thing, I really, REALLY prefer low key lighting, but Sebastian's clothes downright disappear on my black background. Not even Wilhelmina vanishes that badly. I'm tired today, so I decided to leave figuring out light magic tricks for Sebastian for another day, and switched to white background. The dolls are visible on it, but I don't really like this photo, so I - you guessed it - used filter once again! This is turning into filter-themed week awfully fast...

First, the original photo:




And the filtered one:

Day 299

Today is Howl At The Moon Day. So I tried to take photo of howling Clawdeen and imitate the moonlight in it. I don't think I got it right, but it was fun nevertheless.

This one uses filter:




This one doesn't have filter, only tweaked curves:

Daaaayyyy... [boisterous drumroll] 300!



Another 100 days completed, and Frankie's hand is still at large! How is this going to end? Will the ghouls ever manage to take commemorative A Doll A Day photo? Stay tuned for the final episode!


Here's a recap of previous photos:

Day 301

My country celebrates 100 years of republic (before that we were part of Austro-Hungarian Empire), so I wanted to take a themed dolly photo, but it was constantly raining (it is still), I didn't want to get my dolls wet and the celebrations looked more like a huge umbrella fest...
But another thing I love to celebrate every year hapenned! Winter ravens arrived! I love that. Ravens are quite common in my country, but aside from those, huge flocks of ravens from the Baltic regions come to spend the winter in warmer climate. My part of city has a lot of greenery, so they like to stay here. Most of the time, they come in relatively small flocks, but once or twice during the 'arrival period', you can see really huge ones, when the whole sky is filled with hundreds and hundreds of ravens, and it makes me ecstatically happy. They're my favorite birds! I tried to take a photo, but they were too high for my phone, so it looks like very grainy picture of dark cloudy sky, so I took celebratory photo with a proper substitute instead ^_^

Day 302

Today is the Cat Day. I wanted to feature Cuddlinator 2000 in the photo, but she's fast asleep in one of her hiding spots, and for once isn't interested in invading the photo tent. So here are my other 'cats'! No idea why is it so blurry, it looks fine on my phone screen...

Day 303

Do you remember little Count Orlok puppet from Day 146 - the Dracula Day? I decided that eventhough he's not, technically, a doll, he still deserves his own photo.

Day 304

Day before yesterday, I took Rosamunda Wilhelmina von Lebkuchenburg out for a Halloween photoshoot. The fog was to die for, and I wasn't sure if it will be there on Halloween, so I took these photos in advance. Today I took photo of Laura for my instagram.






One to show the 'spooky forest':




And one with filter, because filters are now my thing...




And this is the place where I took all these pics:



It was so wonderfully spooky, I didn't want to leave  :biggrin:

Neon - I love your filters making the photos look like old photographs. The woods photos are beautifully spooky!

I can't believe I never posted the whole month of October! I wish my anti-social phases would stay shorter.
