Camera-Phone Experimentation:
Cropped Tank and Peplum Skirt

Hello Fiends!

So it's been awhile since we have been able to post our own pics 
of dolly goodness here at The DW.

During the July 4th week we ventured outdoors (gasp!) 
for some camera-phone experimentation.

We usually use a Canon Rebel, but this time we purposefully 
left that puppy in the camera cupboard and 
used our Samsung Note3 camera-phone thingy.

We thought it would be interesting to experiment with it 
and see what we could shoot. 
You never know what you can come up with until you try!

Today we will share our pics of Sharmaine, our #26 that we have scalped.

Currently she is wearing Saige's wig that 
we boiled and conditioned; 
so it is a relaxed version of that wig.

The wig is not glued down, 
so we move it around on her head, haha.
This also allows us to use this wig on all of our other bald dolls.

Sharmaine is wearing a cropped mint tank top from
Etsy's Closet 4 Chloe,
a purple necklace from Etsy's Everyday Dollwear,
and a light grey peplum skirt made by
Etsy's Royal Doll Boutique.

And how did we get Sharmaine to stand up in the grass???

Certainly not on her own two feet, 
because we have never managed that very easily, haha.

With a stick! In the drain grate! Woot! Fancy!

But, hey maybe that will help people get some ideas for taking outdoor pics.

There is our "behind the scenes" pic! ^^^ Heehee.

Thanks for visiting us today!

Your phone takes awesome pics! Even better than my old Sony Cyber-Shot, which is done for...and I am now camera-less.

These pictures are great! The outfit is gorgeous. Thank you for the details/buyer's guide.

Yes, those grass pictures can be trying. I haven't used a stick....yet...but will remember this for the future.

Sharmaine is beautiful!

Wow! so how long did you boil it? The normal 10 count? I have been wanting to try this but ag wigs aren't easy to come by if I mess up :) did you condition before boiling or after? Its beautiful!

We swished it around in our hot tap water (which is very hot, a little less than boiling, I would say a high simmer -- it will scald your hands) for 30 seconds about.

Then we conditioned it afterward with Redken human hair conditioner when it was still wet.

American Girl wigs are very high quality and can deal with this type of treatment. I would not trust other wigs to be able to survive this.

We have thought about making custom dolls to sell, dolls like Sharmaine -- do you think people would be interested in them? So they don't have to carry out wig risks themselves, haha.

Amanda said...

Oh, I think definitely yes! :)

Sharmaine is gorgeous! I'd love a doll like her! And her outfit is stunning. Our person's husband only takes photos with his iPhone 5 and they are awesome. Maybe we should try that, too!
