Doll Owner’s Corner: Behind the Scenes Round 6

Beginning of the month, time for another Doll Owner’s Corner.  When I, the doll owner, talk about anything I want.

This month’s topic:

Doll Bloopers!

Another batch of behind the scenes shots.  The theme for this set is “How Does She Do It?”  Photos to demonstrate some of the methods I’ve found to take cute photos, so far anyway.

Lately I’ve been using clear hair elastics to style the dolls hair, but I’ve found them useful for other things.

Doll bloopers with some tips for taking doll photos.  Clear hair elastics help when a doll needs to hold something.

For instance, here when Hikaru wanted to add some touches to something I drew (see Wordless Wednesday: “It Needs More Lace”).  The elastics helps her grip the pencil, but are discreet enough to hide in photos.

I don’t use doll stands to help the dolls stand since they can do so on their own with a little work (I am eyeing these ones though). 

However they can only stay for so long before losing their balance, hence the “falling down” theme from the previous batch of doll bloopers.  A theme that continues here…

This was when my yosd girls were playing with the head (see Wordless Wednesday: Playing Catch).  Hikaru freaked out and they all came crashing down.

This one is when I made Yuna’s new outfit (see Of Bjd Fashion: Yuna’s First Outfit with Tutorial).  Sakura started to fall over (again) and I attempted to catch her mid-photo.

So close, at least she’s okay.  Yuna seemed a little worried. 

The main reason why Yuna didn’t fall too is because she is leaning against my backdrop.  It’s a tri-fold foam board, and if I place something heavy behind it, it’s strong enough to help support the dolls a little.

I wasn’t fully able to lend a hand for Sakura, but I was able to help Hikaru in the next few photos.

Here’s when Hikaru was doing her hair (see Wordless Wednesday: Fixing Her Hair), you didn’t think she was holding that big mirror by herself, right?

And when she took that selfie of herself (see Wordless Wednesday: Doll Selfies), how do you think she held up that phone?

That’s right, another hand from me.

And when Usagi tried to lift up Sakura (see Wordless Wednesday: Up, Up!), she also had a little help.

These are just a few of the little tricks I’ve found.  Feel free to share any you’ve discovered in the comments below.  I will be sure to share any more I find in the future.  Look forward to it.
