Bella’s Questions

This goes on the trophy list of TWO POSTS IN ONE DAY. *gasps for breath*. For someone who hardly posts once a week, I’m pretty psyched.

Bella sent me a list of ten AG questions she wanted to hear my opinion on. Fire away, inner filibuster!

1. If you could get any retired AG doll, which doll would you get?
Ooh, tough. As far as retired dolls go, I like all of them, especially because their collections are a lot more interesting. But out of them all, I think I’d get Marie-Grace and Cecile. (I know that’s two, but when you get one, you get the other.) I was actually looking into a pair I’d found on eBay, but the bid went way higher than I could pay. I was a little bit crushed. ūüė¶

2. Do you watch American Girl Videos on YouTube? If so, what are your favorite channels?
I can’t say I’m an avid AGTube viewer, particularly because I’m usually watching Jockeycams instead, but I subscribed to American Girl Ideas after seeing their adollable Redbox machine.

3. What is your favorite American Girl Movie?

This is also a tough one. I have actually only seen two AG movies all the way through, and between Isabelle Dances Into The Spotlight and Grace Stirs Up Success, I liked Grace better. Although I think Patrick Kirst gets paid per cheesy song. XD.

4. What is your favorite Girl Of The Year?

Out of ’em all? Probably Jess McConnell, even though she’s sort of little known. She has my favorite face mould and is definitely on my wishlist. If I could get ahold of one.

5. What do you think of Logan Everett?
I’m going to be perfectly honest, and I know my opinion is not going to be popular – I HATE HIM. Well, hate is a strong word, but I think that American¬†Girl ought to stick to¬†girls. I don’t think it’s wise to let girls think having a boyfriend is okay, and before you say that he’s not her boyfriend, you know every girl’s going to play him that way. :/ Please don’t lynch me.

6. What would your dream custom AG doll look like?

Oh, what a good question! I’ve been making up a GOTY named Katherine McKittrick. She’s a half-British equestrian who lives with her dad because her mother is sadly passed. She would have Kit’s blue eyes, freckles and wavy brown hair. Something like this:

A little bad, but it’ll do. Hand done.


7. Which one of your AG dolls is your favorite?

Hum. I think I’d rather not say, lest I become wildly unpopular with my dolls.

8. What made you want to get your first AG doll?

Story time!
I was a-walking around Barnes and Noble when I stumbled upon a beautiful display – the big letters beckoned to me: WIN AN AMERICAN GIRL DOLL. I nearly flipped. After filling out four entires (one for me, my mother and my two sisters), I prayed. And prayed. And prayed. I prayed every night for three months. I prayed whenever I thought about that gorgeous blonde doll in the display.
April 1st, 2014: My mother received a call. I thought it was an April Fool’s joke. I took my doll Sophia, whom I’d gotten for Hannukkah in 2012, and I got my first AG doll.
Although they took my photo, I don’t have it. I was probably so smiley that it blinded the photographer. XD.

Well, that concludes the questions. Thanks Bella! I’ll prepare eight questions for you, and send them to you.

From, Tess

The Barefoot Tag

tag

I’ve finally started a tag! Hooray!

The rules for this tag are simple.

  1. Take a photoshoot of your doll – but she has to be barefoot.
  2. At least half of your photos must be unedited.
  3. Post every photo you took, regardless of whether it’s good or bad.
  4. Tag one and only one person.

I tag: Gracie from Smile And Craft AG!

Since I am the originator of this tag, I submit my photoshoot.

I took these at about 8:00 am. The sun is so pretty on Autumn’s pretty red hair!

However, I need to do a Doll Spa Day – where I get the smudge off of Autumn’s face (a Breyer horse fell off my shelf and scratched her on the cheek), tigthen Issa’s limbs, and clean everyone’s skin. They’re all smudgy.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to use on that nasty scratch? I really need to get it off, it looks like a scab. LOL.
