Red Nose Day, an English holiday, is a day full of comic relief in order to raise awareness for charity. Over at Doll-lightful Days Inc., famous contestants have been preparing for weeks to show off their exceptional talents with you as their audience. One stage against one red back drop means they are going to have to WOW you!

I’m Miranda Rivers and I will be your hostess tonight, showcasing all those amazing acts that the performers have prepared. And don’t forget, after each act you can donate to a charity of your choice after each act using the toll-free number: 001-234-5609 (disclosure: number may or may not be valid :D). Last but not least, get ready to chose your favorite! Which performer has the most fantastic performance, the most moving back story, or is the best dressed? Are you ready? What are we waiting for?

First up is the legendary Kimmy K!

DSCN6162

Kimmy: Hi, my name’s Kimmy K! I grew up a long, long, time ago (I mean it) and I’ve been working on my acrodancing (a combination of acrobatics and dancing) as long as I can remember. I’m a street-performer, and an expert classroom-performer, but this is my first gig, so I’m pumped!! My advice to any of you young gymnasts and dancers is, go out there and have a blast! Even though my acrodancing is based off some 1930s moves, I just go for it!  Cheers!

The music starts and she’s up and away! Look at her go, folks! She hasn’t got a care in the world! She’s dancing to an old 1930s song, by the way 🙂

A spectacular handstand pulled off right there… look at that beauty!

The music comes to an end and Kimmy ends with stunning splits! Goooo, Kimmmmmyy!

What did you think of Kimmy? I’d say that piece of advice was pretty inspiring, wouldn’t you? And how do you think her routine looks? Take a moment to think about it and vote at the end!

Up next is the accredited author, Charlotte White!

DSCN6155

Charlotte: Good evening, my name is Charlotte White. I have written several best-selling books and have become a very well-known English teacher. When I was asked to do an act for Red Nose Day, despite my total lack of stage-presence, I knew I could do nothing but have a stand-up comedy act concerning some of the subjects I feel passionate about. If you are looking for a chance to perform, I would suggest to choose a performance you feel means a lot to you and that you would love to watch as well.

DSCN6125

Charlotte: Hello. I’m here to do stand-up comedy. At the moment, I think me doing stand-up comedy is a joke itself.

*Awkward silence*

Charlotte: But I have prepared some of my very favorite and cherished jokes from the time I had first discovered the joys of the English language, so I will share them with you now.

*Awkward silence*

Charlotte: *pause* Knock knock.

Audience: Who’s there?

Charlotte: To.

Audience:… To who?

Charlotte: Now, you see, my dear audience, you have fallen into a very common trap. You cannot say ‘to who’ – you must say ‘to whom’. As for as I know, I am the only one who has responded in the correct fashion thus far, but I enjoy it very much when other people are misled… just as in so many of Austen’s novels. Jane Austen, you know, is a very famous author, particularly for her Pride and Prejudice, which has had two major movie adaptions, of which only one has been a success. But this, my audience, pales next to the exceptional novel itself… ah, are we moving on? OK. Let’s move on.

DSCN6132

Charlotte: And now for some of my personal favorites: bar jokes! I realize some of the audience is under-aged, so I will use “business establishment serving various food and drink”. Are you ready for this next one?

*Awkward silence*

Charlotte: OK. The past, the present, and the future walk into a business establishment serving various food and drink. It was tense.

*Awkward silence except for Amber turning around in embarrassment*

Charlotte: A question mark walks into a business establishment serving various food and drink?

*General sighs*

Charlotte: How about a synonym strolls into a restaurant? The explanation for that one, dear audience, is –

Thank you so much, Charlotte! We feel so much more… enlightened!

Charlotte: Ah, but of course. I wasn’t quite done yet, however…

What did you think of Charlotte? Was her act funny? What did you think of her outfit?

Give it up for our last performer: Colby Wilde!

DSCN6153

Colby: Hi, my name’s Colby Wilde. When I was a kid, I used to get teased a lot ‘cuz I wasn’t “cool”, I was more of a hipster. And we say that there is no such word as “cool” and we are cooler than the nonexistent cool! So that’s why I started singing all of my worries away, ‘cuz haters gonna hate! My advice to you is follow your dreams! No one cares! Do it! Peace out, love you guys, you totally rock.

DSCN6143

Colby starts singing the song I Will Always Love You, a classic. She’s staring off sort of shy, but she’s managing fine. I hear a promising voice, don’t you?

DSCN6144

Wow!!!!!! Would you listen to that voice! This girl has got it good! Get a load of this!

DSCN6147

I started crying, what about you? I know it’s sort of hard if you can’t hear her singing, but the point remains 🙂

So, what do you think? How was the talent show? Whose outfit was coolest, whose back-story was uniquest, whose act was greatest, and why? Tell us in the comments, and the star could get a shout-out in the future?

And now for the over-all poll. If you had to vote for one star, who would it be?

Thank you for watching! I’m Miranda Rivers, and enjoy your evening.

 

Updates!!

Hello to all! It’s Emma here talking! Wow, was it really a month? We’re sorry we haven’t posted, but we have some new ideas for our faithful readers…

MORE FUN!!!

We’d love to continue making photo stories as a decently big part of our blog, but we have some other plans as well!! Each of the other dolls have an idea in mind, and I’ll let them narrate their projects. Without further ado…

amber
(I’ll let Amber take over now, bye!! :D)

Hi everybody, it’s your favorite doll Amber, and my new series, Art with Amber!! I was thinking for a while that I would L-O-V-E to start a new series talking about all those things you have lying around the house. You know, that stuff that Human doesn’t need anymore and she needs to throw away? Or things that were meant for Human and worked just as well for dolls (some people call these ‘fun finds’)? I’ll post about projects using these that will take you just a few minutes of your time, perfect for a busy day!!! Look for a new post soon!

willow

Hello everybody, Willow speaking. I love fashion and I love giving tips and tricks, so that is why I decided to start a new series called Willow’s Wardrobe. It will give handy ideas that dolls need and may include our attempts at recycling our Mum’s old clothes (no sew). I hope to post soon in the future!

And lastly…

all

Hi everyone, it’s Kit, your reporter doll! Speaking of reporting, there are some special days coming up (like Valentine’s Day) and some special not-as-important days (like National Hugging Day). Over here at Doll-lightful Days headquaters, we like those not-as-important days too! We’d also like to celebrate them from time to time and share what we did with you, on this new series Doll Days.  Emma and I, the runners of this project, hope to see you soon!

Emma’s back! That’s it, and look for more posts in the near future!

Emma

AG New Releases 2!

(Normal=Kit – Italics=Emma – Underline=AmberBold=Willow)

Hi! It’s Kit. It feels SO good to be back to the blog! Yeah it does! Emma’s here, too! Hey, wait up, you nearly forgot me! And me too! Yeah, well you’re here now! What we were going to talk about was… drumroll…. AG’S NEW RELEASES!! Yay! And this time we’re each gonna share our own opinions for the outfits! Me too? Um, I suppose so! Yeah, Willow! So, without further ado… LET’S START!

AG really focused on Bitty Baby this release. I think that’s nice for the smaller population, but there’s not a lot in it for us. Oh give me a break. AG focuses on you every season. Wrong – AG focuses on AMBER every season, but not on the historical girls, except for Willow this year. Well I think it’s good the little babies had a turn for once. I’m a bit tired of the spotlight.

bittybaby

Kit: The Bitty Babies are staring at me. It’s creepy.

Amber: Sorry, she’s got a thing with babies. I think the new babies are cute and it would be nice to meet one!

Emma: I am happy that they finally got a chance. However maybe they could have kept the old babies too.

Willow: Very sweet, but very pricey.

For the rest, we’ll just be reviewing the new clothes!

shorts

Kit: It has a dog on it!! *instantly buys*

Amber: In key with modern styles! And it’s got flats!

Emma: Shorts with leggings? That is just so strange.

Willow: *bans from wishlist*

Kit: PINK! IT HURTS MY EYES!

Amber: It just seems so…so…so…not me.

Emma: I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!

Willow: Not 1940s but still really cute!

red

Kit: One of my favorite colors, but too girly and sparkly! But it’s still a bit wearable.

Amber: I think it’s adorbs XD

Emma: Truly not something I would wear.

Willow: Um….. no.

polarbear
Kit: This is more like it!

Amber: I like how versatile the top and boots are, you can use them in normal outfits. Unbelievably cute!

Emma: Looks very comfortable.

Willow: I never knew pajamas like this! Where are the nightgowns?

jacket

Kit: I would so wear this.

Amber: Me too.

Emma: The sweater is the best!!!!!!!!!!!

Willow: It would keep you very warm, I approve!
