Z the Tree Hugger…Literally | A Photoshoot

Hello, marshmallows!

Today I took Z outside for a photoshoot! She’s going to guest star in Forever, so that’s when she’ll be coming to the doll family on the blog, if you were wondering. So…I guess I’ll let Z take over!

IMG_1538.JPG

Hello! I’m Ziana, but everybody calls me Z. (Emmie: In her books her real name is Susie, but I decided that Ziana fitted her better.) 

IMG_1539

I decided to take a break from working on an AGSM (the Horrible Homework Hacker! If Emmie will let me I’ll show it to you guys!) and go climb some trees! Emmien wanted to do a photoshoot with me, and I agreed. But, I shall ruin it by not looking at the camera! Mwhahaha!

IMG_1540.JPG

Ok, Emmie, I know you’re all ‘Super-Artistic-Photos’ but this photoshoot was supposed to be of me??

IMG_1541.JPG

“What was that?”

IMG_1542.JPG

“It’s…it’s…a tree with better lighting!”

Oh so interesting am I right.

IMG_1543.JPG

AHH I’M ON FIRE!!!

Jk, that’s just the sun.

IMG_1544.JPG

I SHALL NEVER LOOK AT THE CAMERA. This rock is my evil sidekick and together we shall conquer the blogosphere, one horrible photo at a time. *pats rock sidekick*

Hello up there.

This is so, so crazy.

50 PEOPLE decided that AGW was good enough to click that little button–the button that can change a blogger’s life. YOU are the reason why American Girls continue to Rule the World–you aren’t just another follower on another blog. You’re part of a community! A community that celebrates YOU and dolls–our little actresses that we can name, create personalities for, and write countless photo stories and stories about. YOU are part of the American Girl World family.

And as a celebration of this, I bring you….

A MEGA Q AND A!

That’s right–our very first Q and A! You can ask me or my dolls (Jade, Izzy, Felicity, Lexi, Maryellen, or Z) as many questions as you want! The Q & A closes on October 21. That gives you one week to answer your questions.

If you’re an AGW follower, than A GAZILLION  MARSHMALLOWS TO YOU. Since I’m nice here’s a badge:

Z’s Media Kit REVEIW

Hello everyone! Welcome to American Girl World! Today I’ll be reviewing the Z’s Media Kit from American Girl! This is ironic, because I am taking pictures of a photography studio in my new photography studio! XDD

You can see Victoria and Emily up there!

The front of the box has an image of the product with Z standing next to it, the Z Yang Collection logo-thingy, and some camera illustrations that look like they were done on a chalkboard. The back of the box says: Ready, Set, Record! Z’s Set features a working studio light, functioning clapboard, a megaphone, booklet, award, tote bag, and a reversible screen featuring a Seattle scene.

aw

It was fairly easy to assemble. The instructions were very detailed, “Short stick + long stick”. Thanks, AG.

Here’s it all put together! The screen is a really good quality fabric, though it comes folded so you might want to iron it. The scene is really cute! The studio light requires 2 AAA batteries. I am a bit upset they only included one studio light, as one light creates a lot of shadows and you should usually use two or three lights.

The reverse side is a green screen. The only problem about this is you would need editing software to make it work in your videos.

It also came with a megaphone, a booklet, and a “Z. Awards” trophy.

View of the booklet.

Even in the book it says to use two or three lights.

And of course, Z has her clapboard!

***NOT SHOWN: Purple tote bag

Overall, I really liked this Set! I don’t think that it is worth $60 though, Maybe more around $45. The only thing I would really change is having two studio lights, but other than that the set is adorable! I 1000000000% recommend this set and I am really excited to see the Doll blogging community use this!

Thanks for reading!

Victoria the Dreamer | I Got a Free Doll?!

Hello, my loyal marshmallows!

It is I, Emmie! Thanks for stopping by! So……My neighbor was getting rid of some of her doll collection! No, she is not an American Girl Doll. But, even though she is not an American Girl, I think she is beautiful. At first I thought she was creepy but know I really like her. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MRS. P! Now, for the reveal!

WARNING: If you are creeped out by dolls that are not American Girl, then you probably shouldn’t read this post! She’s actually not that creepy, but I know pediophobia varies, so, be careful….

Meet…

VICORIA ELISABETH BLOOMSBURY!

IMG_1394.JPG

(Sorry for bad lighting!)

She has curly blond hair, bright blue inset eyes, painted lower lashes and synthetic upper lashes, A porcelain face with beautiful paint, a gold locket and a matching bracelet. Her early 1900’s style outfit is a teal blue color with puffed sleeves and lace. She has bloomers, rose-embroidered tights, and shoes that have little roses on them. Her headband is coral tulle shaped like a flower.

IMG_1395.JPG

Here is a back view^

She is 11 years old and likes playing with her dolls, embroidery, drawing, and singing. She is from 1905. I don’t think she is going to be part of the doll family because of her difference in size, and she is very fragile and more of a collector’s doll.

IMG_1397IMG_1396

A side view^

I think she is really pretty! What do YOU think of Victoria? Comment below!

IMG_1167

I have been working nonstop on the script for Forever! I feel like I have too many of the same sounding scenes…so I have to work on that…and then there’s costumes….and sets…plus I signed up for 9999 photography contests and then a book to beta-read (hi Enni!)…HELP ME!!!!!

Any ideas for Forever? What do you think of Victoria?

Mini Misadventures #1: The Canine Catastrophe

Hello, loyal marshmallows!

So first of all, if you are reading this post, high five, you! You are the awesomest person in the whole world! Here’s some marshmallows.

Second of all, I wanted to give a huge shoutout to Madison @ Delightful World of Dolls! Her post inspired me to write this photo story!

So let’s get on with the photo story, shall we?

.

IMG_1361.JPG

“I’m bored,” Izzy whined. “There’s never anything to do here.”

“I like doing nothing,” Raina pushed a blue lock of hair behind her ear. “It’s very quiet. I can just sit and think deeply about things.”

As Raina was talking, she noticed that Izzy wasn’t paying attention and looked up.

IMG_1362.JPG

“Hello down there!”

“Ahh!” Raina was shocked. “Get down from there!” You could really hurt yourself!”

“You’re no fun!” Izzy pouted. “Come up here!”

IMG_1363.JPG

“I don’t want to! I’m afraid of heights!”

“Oh, come on, scaredy-cat!”

IMG_1365.JPG

“Fine.”

IMG_1366.JPG

“Wait a sec, how do we get down?”

“YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO GET US DOWN??” Raina shrieked. Izzy just looked at her.

“There’s only one way.”

IMG_1368.JPG

Climbing to the edge of the wood, Izzy took a deep breath and pushed her little legs up.

IMG_1370.JPG

And she went flying! The thrill of it purged through her body as she fell, down, down, the wind rushing against her. The adrenaline was overwhelming.

IMG_1371.JPG

She landed on the grass with a fall, luckily breaking her fall. She lay there for a moment, soaking the moment in. She was the first mini doll to brave such a height, such a fall… and for it to be a free fall, she almost–

IMG_1373.JPG

With a scream and an “Oof!” Raina landed on the grass beside her, interrupting her daydream. Slightly annoyed, Izzy repositioned herself.

IMG_1377.JPG

Little did they know what lay in their future.

IMG_1378.JPG

Hearing a small bark, Izzy jumped. She turned around…and screamed!

IMG_1380.JPG

The minis jumped up and ran! Screaming, they pumped their legs as fast as they could.

But just when they thought they had lost the bloodthirsty pup…

IMG_1383.JPG

…Izzy tumbled in to a ditch!

IMG_1385.JPG
Oh, umm, sorry for the uh, dog poop that seems to have photobombed…XD

“I’m gonna die!!!!” Izzy screamed. “I DON’T WANNA DIE IN A DITCH!”

IMG_1386.JPG

Ooof! Raina tumbled in after her.

IMG_1388.JPG

But just as things had “CERTAIN DEATH” in capital letters written all over the situation…

Izzy sprang up from the ditch, hoisted her leg over the dog, and then…

IMG_1390.JPG

At least mini-doll-hungry dogs came with a ride home.

❤ Most writerly,

Emmie

EVENTS

My birthday! I’M GONNA BE TEN IN TEN DAYS. SO I’LL BE TEN ON THE TENTH DAY OF THE TENTH MONTH. *Struts around in all my almost-tweeness* And now all my bios can say “Tween Christian blogger” instead of “nine-year-old Texan and daughter of the One True King” and people won’t say “Oh you’re such a great writer for your age” LIKE SRSLY JUST CUZ YOUR BIO SAYS TWEEN DOES’NT MEAN YOU’RE STILL NOT ONE YEAR OLDER THAN ME and you get to pretend your twelve. *Pouts* *Cheers up because self will be the one depressing nine year olds with “compliments” in ten days*

Lexi’s Birthday! I got Lexi for my 7th birthday so we are twins! *Poses* *Drops Lexi because self is trying to write post* *Knows self should pick her up* *Continues typing*

DOLLAWEEN DUH. This is the first time I will be able to do dollaween with my dolls–I didn’t have this blog at halloween last year! I have most of the costumes done–Izzy will be a princess, Lissie a cowgirl, Alexandra a Forest Nymph, Jade a zombie ballerina, and Maryellen will be a Wizard, and Z will–wait, who’s Z? I only have five dolls! Not 6! Totally not getting another for my birthday! Heh! Heh! Heh… *Runs*

.

Hope you liked this post! Don’t forget to comment for NTTM #3!

Also, nobody is doing the Old Post Tag? I don’t mean to sound needy but i don’t want it to be the death of a newborn tag. TAG MURDERING IS AGAINST THE LAW PEEPS. If you weren’t nominated, feel free to do this tag!
