My 3 Dracularas that I used for this ‘photoshoot’ yesterday. Inside my small studio came past by my husband and saw me busy trying to sit, stand and kneel these beauties. Said; ‘I admire your patience, honey!’.

The dolls are not meant to stand on their feet alone but with patience, well..I can make them stand which is a lot better when photographing them. Only in this case, I wanted them to gather around the camera and standing will not be that ‘interesting’ as their positions on the photo.

Aren’t they cute? :)

Lately I have been in the mood again to photograph my Monster High dolls collection, yeah! It’s been a while since I last let anyone out of their glass cabinet, lol! Well anyways, since iPhone4s is so easy to use, I love its camera lens clarity, wide lens, and easy uploads, not to forget to mention, it’s way much easier for me not to edit any photos since many apple apps are ‘self explanatory’ than adobe photoshop with all those icons I would never understand :P

Spectra was one of the first batch I ever bought (last year, that is when I started collecting) She appears a bit gothic as she is also a ghost’s daughter. Her dress is quite purple-ish but I opted for more grayish tint, although¬† the color purple is still to see. :)

Three of my five Frankie Stein dolls.

Isn’t she lovely? (*^0^*) Even my almost 60 years old aunt is slowly falling in love with these dolls! I now have 29 in my collection, thanks to my aunt and friend living in the United States for taking care of the packaging and sending them to me back here in Holland. Yes, some toys stores sell them here but not the complete cast. And most I find are jacked up in price. Well, they do have to ‘translate’ the boxes into the local language because they are manufactured in China (Mattel) , so that explains why they’re pretty expensive around here thus I ask my aunt and fiend to buy them for me instead.

But sometimes I just couldn’t wait that long for the new ones arrivals. Like right now, I am itching to order them online eventhough price are doubled. *Breath in- breath out* ¬†Think twice before hitting that ‘enter’ key.

Gah! I must resist! :D
