New Girl

06-dsc_0043

I really was not planning on buying another doll. But as I do not have much self-control in the AG store, a new girl came home with me yesterday.

Please welcome Parker (#40) to the HHOAG family.

I haven’t quite figured out her personality yet. But I believe she’ll be fourteen, with a love for the paranormal. I’m not entirely sure, though.

I almost got #64 instead, but I fell in love with Parker’s short hair.

I also bought the Tropical Print Dress from the new mix-and-match set.

My dad bought the Blue Sandals for me.

Would anyone like a review of her? Maybe a comparison between Parker and Ivy?

And the Geo-Print Shorts.

That’s all I got at the D.C. store. I’ll probably do some reviews.

Anyway, please welcome Miss Parker.

Who Should GOTY 2017 Be? Tag

GOTY tag

Hey, guys! Geeky_Girl from The Dolls of Texas nominated me for a really fun tag that she invented:
the Who Should GOTY 2017 Be? Tag.

American Girl, if you’re reading this post, start working on my GOTY idea. Please?

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer the 10-15 questions given
  • Make 10 questions for the nominees to answer
  • Nominated 2-5 people

What is your GOTY’s name?

Lucina Rivera Ramirez.

How old is she?

13. I think it’s about time American Girl ventured outside of the eleven-year-old box they’re stuck in.

What are her hobbies?

Soccer, babysitting, performing magic tricks, and paintballing.

Where does she live?

Pennsylvania.

Does she have any siblings?

Three brothers: one older than her, two younger.

Friends?

Riley, the keeper on her all-girls soccer team. Matias, the boy who works at the concession stand at the soccer fields. Amara, a dramatic private schooler with a purple streak in her auburn hair (Lucina and Amara meet while paintballing).

Pets?

A box turtle. 🙂

What school does she go to?

Lucina and her siblings are homeschooled, though her older brother, Andrés, goes to public school.

Outfits in collection?

 Meet outfit: orange tank top, gray athletic shorts, a purple fabric headband, sneakers, and soccer ball earrings. Pajamas: old soccer jersey and soft pants. Casual: jean capris, a dark blue sweatshirt, white shirt with colorful geometric print, and a watch. She would also have a white and blue soccer uniform (complete with ball and water bottle),  a sequined black and white magic-show outfit (with top hat and bow tie), paint-splattered jeans and T-shirt for paintballing, and a lime green skater dress. And maybe she would have a Hershey Park T-shirt, since she lives in PA.

Random?

Well, I haven’t gotten to actually tell you what Lucina looks like yet, so I’ll do that. 😉 She’s half Mexican, with skin the color of Josefina’s and black hair. Her hair would be a bit longer than Emily Bennett’s, and parted on the side. Lucina would have gray eyes — AG hasn’t made many dolls with eyes like that, and I think it would give her a unique look.

I hope you guys liked learning about my ideal GOTY!

I tag . . .

Anyone who likes Kanani!

Questions:

  • What is your GOTY’s name?
  • How old is she?
  • What does she look like?
  • What are her hobbies?
  • Where does she live?
  • Does she have any siblings?
  • Friends?
  • Pets?
  • What school does she go to?
  • Outfits in her collection?
  • Other?

If Lucina was a real doll, would you buy her?

American Girl Doll Tips and Tricks

Buzz About AG

Hi! Today I’ve put together a post on how to keep your dolls looking their best, outfit ideas, photography tips, and more. Here, you do the math. Good outfit+awesome hairstyle+’healthy’ doll= great photoshoot= amazing blog!

OUTFIT IDEAS


MIX AND MATCH. Guys, you can make so many outfits with different pieces. I try to make my dolls look trendy and cute. Here are 3 outfits- all with the same shorts.

DSC04816.JPGThis one is bright and makes me think of summer. 🙂 DSC04817.JPGLazy day outfit! DSC04818.JPGSame as before, but cuter- with a vest and black sandals. Also, what I do is pick out the base for the clothes first, like a simple tee and pants, and then add shoes and accessories. (sample outfit idea: short sleeve t-shirt, black leggings, brown boots, high ponytail, wristwatch)

Does your blog have a certain theme? Mine does! It’s bee- themed, so that’s why my header picture is…

Au Revoir, Hiver {Good Bye, Winter}. A rather long photoshoot of MJ in the snow. Please don’t question why she’s wearing a tanktop; MJ will not have a good answer.

I Promise. In this photostory, MJ has to leave the Happy House of AG dolls. There’s icky emotions and even a dance number.

What’s Up Wednesday ~ March 11 (or 12) + Acting Out a Story. Thumbs up for long titles and all that. Besides pictures for WUW, there’s some of my old writing — in the style of Pseudonymous Bosch. I might continue the story some day. I’m thinking of calling it “Give the World Hope” or something along those lines. As in, let the world devour the main character.

Wanted: Title. Pictures of Savannah. Hooray. She rubs her Kool-Aid in your face.

Ellie by the Fence {an AGPS}

I AM AMAZING AT TITLING.

#sarcastic first sentence is sarcastic

Anyway. All you need to know is that I took some more pictures of the extremely photogenic Ellie. She’s posing by our neighbor’s fence — the same fence, in fact, that is the Road to Pamel (If you haven’t read my photostory series Road to Pamel, go do that).

*whispers* Shameless self-promotion.

Enjoy! 🙂
