Heyas! Can you guys believe it’s may already? Crazy!! Today I was thinking on my new year’s resolutions, especially the goal I have to take at least one photo each month (hopefully 2). So far I’ve done good, each month has at least one photo, but if you follow me on other social media you might have noticed that april was especially good, I took a ton of photos. it’s quite the record for me!
I thought I would show the photos here and some comments on them, to keep things going. If you don’t like these kind of posts, no worries, I doubt I’ll have any other month as productive as this one haha, but let’s hope I’m wrong. I think I may have been possessed!
This one was the first photo of the month and one of my all times favorite! Sure the background is not the best, but I really love the pose and the light. For the pose I used a stand, which was mostly hidden by her straight leg and the bunny paws. I deleted the base of the stand with Photoshop. I like how the bunny hat has wire on the paws so you can pose them too!!! It made the whole pose more dynamic, don’t you think? I also moved the dress to that side so it looked like everything was moving together.
After that I decided my blue gingham girl needed some good photos too so I took this one on a sunny day, doesn’t look like she enjoys the sun all that much though! I love how the blue contrasts so much with the background.
Sahra was needing some attention so I did a very cute pose with her on the stand, but her face is just so cute that I ended up choosing a close up of her. Need to get some full body shots of my PN girls, they have pretty shoes!
Fiyero of course got super jealous of all the ladies getting the spotlight, so I took him out to pet him. Turns out, this wasn’ t the kind of attention He wanted! I think He just needed some food 😀
One lazy day I decided it was time to take some shots of my 1/6 scale dogs and I had so much fun! I didn’t want to give away my unfinished diorama so I took a few elements from it to make the photo.
My second attempt to a Momoko group shot. The first one was terrible. This one didn’t go all that much better, but with a lot of photoshop, I could save it somehow. I think I need more doll stands, they kept falling off!
For a moment there I thought of selling Mercedes, but this whole photo shoot was so cute, how could I let this cutie go? If she only had her extra hands though! It sucks I was never able to get them so She can’t hold her sword.
I don’t like this photo, but She has just arrived so She needed some photos. I hope to make her justice soon!!! She will be Nina, my fashion blogger. I decided in the end to give names to all my Momokos (PN will keep their release names, Sahra and Maya, unless I end up with more than one of each).
And last arrival of the month, Maya!!! I love her clothes! Again, not the best photo, but I hope to give her a proper photo shoot soon. Love how Pure Neemos pose and I need to take full advantage of that.
No diorama photos yet, not because it isn’t ready, but because I’ve been lazy to set it up and see if the side table idea I have works or not. I’ll get there.
Did you have a great doll month? Let me know!
I’m sorry to hear about Mercedes hands! Wow. I remember you had been waiting for ages for them. That’s a shame. Are you able to source them from anywhere else?
Loved your photos, I’ve really enjoyed seeing them. I didn’t know how you posed the first girl (have you named her yet?) but that is a neat trick. I find they are pretty stable with boots on, not so much barefeet though. How have you gone with staining? I changed out one of my girl’s default clothing and her black socks had stained her feet. It happened pretty fast too as she wasn’t in that outfit for a while but then I put them on her. Because I have my dolls on display, they aren’t ever nude.
I haven’t even attempted a group photo of my Momoko girls yet. It’s on my longer by the minute to do list!
Can’t wait to see your diorama. Love the glimpses you’ve been tantalising us with though.
SIO2 wasn’t selling them anymore last time I checked so I gave up already. Maybe if they re release bleater they will be available again, you never know~ For now her painted sword and shield are pretty much useless.
Thanks1 I’m happy you enjoyed my photos. I only have 2 pairs of momoko shoes so they were all barefoot for the group shot and they kept falling over, especially outside because it was windy haha, but you are right, they are more stable on shoes. I hope to get some money for shoes in the future, official momoko shoes, as I really like them. For now I have an incoming order with clothes and shoes from taobao that I’v been waiting for like 2 months (the clothes took a lot of time to be ready). Hope the packages gets here soon! My fashion blogger needs some nice clothes to model.
Hope you give Momoko group photos a shot! It was you who inspired me to do it after all 🙂
I’ll try to be less lazy this weekend and take some photos of the diorama as it is for now. There’s always room for improvement, new chances to get photos.
Fantastic photos! The bunny girls looks particularly cute. 🙂
Yeah, it’s May already and I still wear a parka and a beanie. Now THAT is crazy!
And it rains all the time so no outdoor photos for me. I have to think of some kind of diorama.
And I can’t wait to see yours.
Thanks!! Aww so sorry the cold hasn’t leave your country yet! Here is autumn at the moment and it’s getting really chilli. Hope the winter pass by fast 🙁
I’d love to see you give dioramas a try!
That first photo is the pick of the bunch, so clever how you did it too! I have enjoyed seeing all your pics though, so keep posting them. 🙂
Thanks!!! It’s harder for me to get nice photos in winter due to the lack of light, but I’ll try to take some nice shots :)! I’m glad you enjoyed them~
You did so well with all these photos in my opinion 🙂
Your Momokos are so lovely! I’m in love with the very first photo <3
Can Momoko and Pure Neemo use the same stands? I was considering gettig a few as well ^__^
Aww thank you <3 !!!
I have 2 stands at the moment: one came with my momokos and I find it a bit too tall even for them, so it doesn't work on pure neemos at all. The other I got from Amiami, white metallic with adjustable height that works perfect for pure neemos M body. At the lowest height it grabs her waist so it should work for S bodies too, maybe XS, I will let you know when I get my XS body. The clasp will be higher but that's okay, My momokos get grabbed by the bust with their official stand XD awkward!
I prefer the amiami one for both PN and momokos.
This is the Amiami one: http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=FIG-DOL-9240
Can not believe that it is May already! Time has passed by very fast and even if the weather has slowly changed to warmer, sunnier and softer, it still can be freezing during late evenings and nights. My mind slowly starts to process other festivities – last day at school for the kids, the school dance for the 9th graders and a trip to the cottage. And other things to do before that.
I had the new year’s resolutions on my mind just some days ago and felt that I was doing rather well. The reading part has nog happened yet, but there is still time. When it comes to photography, I have let go of those perfect moments and just used my smart phone to take photos. That phone comes along all the time. Then I can sort and use the favorites.
I like these photos, so keep them coming. The first one is just great in my eyes and I like photos that have a stranger background and something in the foreground that really are, in this case cuter that the background. There is movement and feelings too, in the photo.
Fiyero really looks like he did not like the attention at all! Lol! And I feel like those tiny dogs, tired and wanna sleep after this long day! 😀 The group photo could be a cover to a magazine! And I ’namesake’! Yay! I wonder what kind of fashion she will blog about!
Look forward to seeing your diorama!
Having a family is hard work!! All I have to think of is my birthday in june, which I don’t want to happen at all LOL! No vacations nor festivities except for Mother’s day and Father’s day for a while. This year definitely has been going way too fast!!
I’ve also been wanting to read more this year but so far I’ve only read 2 books, the last one took me an entire month to finish it because it was too slow paced for the majority of it, so I was only reading a chapter a day, which was like 15 minutes. There’s still time for us to make better though!! Still more than half of the year 🙂
Your phone takes nice photos!! Mine takes weird looking photos, though I’ve used it to post on instagram a few times. It’s nice for being lightweight and more easy to take out though.
I’m glad you enjoyed the photos!! So far this month I’ve been lazy, but it’s just starting 🙂
Those were a lot of photos, and they are all amazing!!! Congrats on all of your new arrivals, I specially love Nina! That hair, so cute <3
And regarding the PureNeemos, that Maya is the kitty version? I love that one, so cute :3
Maybe you should do a pose reference of Momokos and PureNeemos, for those of us who know nothing about those dolls!
Thank you~ Yes she is the kitty version, there’s a box opening post where you can see the booklet for her if you are curious. The magnet for the tail goes attached to a pocket in her undies, I thought it was so clever!!!
I’m not sure if I’ll ever do a pose reference for these dolls, if anything I could maybe try with pure neemos, Momokos aren’t very posable so that would make a lame post hahaha
So many great, colorful photos! I also think the first is my favorite, the pose is just excellent and PS-ing out the stand is a brilliant move on your part x3
Thanks!!! I’ll try to make more nice poses using stands 😀
So pretty! I love your adorable style, and dolls!! *-* My favorite is that first one! I love that bunny look!!
Thank you! That’s my favorite too hahaha
Wish I could do a lot of photos this month too
