Willow’s Wardrobe: Pose and Smile

Hello world, it’s Willow for the next Willow’s Wardrobe!


(Don’t worry, we’ll do some of the other series’ soon!)

I’m here to answer a doll nation-wide problem: modeling! (“How can I pose for pictures?”) Here are a few tips for you:


1. Straight on. Look the camera directly in the eye! This is definitely a common pose, but what are some others?


2. Aerial view. This way, people can get an overview of your outfit and your surrounding ground. Plus, it’s a cool touch 🙂


3. Tilt that camera a bit! Don’t be front-and-centre-stage all the time! Go for a bit of panning – and look away from the camera!


4. Diagonal photos #1. Have your human tilt the camera diagonally while still looking straight at it.


The slightly-distracted look


The caught-sight-of-a-UFO-and-forgot-about-the-camera look

5. Diagonal photos #2. As before, have human tilt the camera… but now – LOOK AWAY!!!

I hope you enjoyed the tips! Have fun posing!!



A Romanian Santa Lucia

Hello readers! Willow here. A while ago Mummy went to Romania, remember? And, she brought something special back for us dollies, a Romanian dress! It also works as a Santa Lucia dress! Santa Lucia is a Scandinavian holiday – to find out more look at http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/517701/St-Lucias-Day.

Here’s the dress, finally revealed!


Natten går tunga fjät/rund gård och stuva; (Night walks with a heavy step/Round yard and hearth;)


kring jord, som sol förlät/skuggorna ruva. (As the sun departs from earth/Shadows are brooding.)


Då i vårt mörka hus/stiger med tända ljus, (There in our dark house/Walking with lit candles,)


Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia! (Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!)

Now, let’s take a look at the dress:



The dress is red and white with puffy sleeves. You can adjust how tight it can be and there’s some decorative lace. It’s not a real Santa Lucia outfit and I don’t have a glowing Santa Lucia crown, but it’s not too bad. Grandmummy says that it’s probably traditionally Romanian. Wouldn’t it be so lovely to lounge around all day in this dress? I wouldn’t mind living in Romania…



Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia!

Have a nice Saturday!!!



Kit in White: A photoshoot

Hello eager readers! We have so much to post we just can’t STAND it! Human’s vacation was in Romania…. and she left us behind! Amber says the dress she brought back makes up for it (that’s another post!).

I never thought I’d be starting this month with this photoshoot. This is NOT one of our better photoshoots at all! The light was a bit too dim, but we’re still going to post it –  we all learn from our mistakes!

So, voila “Kit in White”…


Your favorite reporter in her all-white outfit.


Looking at the greenery.


A pose by the tree. One of the better ones…


On the fence.


Among God’s beautiful creation!


To me a lilac symbolizes hope in that picture. That was the only sprig of lilac on the bush – like, it’s not completely winter yet, summer is still hanging on. That lilac is probably gone, now.

See you later for better pics!
