The hydrangeas have been simply beautiful this summer. Pale green buds gave way to an exquisitely vibrant blue that I was in awe of the moment I saw it. Hydrangeas are some of my mom’s favorite flowers, and I think they’ve become mine as well. Rather than dramatic flowers like roses, I’ve really come to love small delicate flowers!
My most recent figures have of course gotten their time with the flowers, but I also wanted to feature the poor Dollfie Dreams who have been so neglected lately, so here they are!
I shot the two dolls separately, and first up was Celeste. My focus with her was to be the contrast between her bright red hair and the deep blue flowers. I haven’t made any clothes for her in a very long time(have been making cosplays for myself instead hehe), but I pieced together something from her existing wardrobe.
I don’t have many Dollfie Dream sized props, so taking interesting pictures of my dolls is a struggle sometimes. However, I read a cosplay post about posing recently(I’m very bad at posing myself *sob*) that said even your wig can be a prop if you interact with it, so I employed that idea here!
Next up is Kanade! I try to maintain a Japanese aesthetic for Kanade even if she isn’t wearing something traditional, and there’s a particular one that is very natural and ephemeral which I wanted to imitate. It’s something fairy-like that pushes the boundary between fantasy and reality as if you’ve stumbled upon something fantastical in a forest. Perhaps it’s Mori with a splash of Fairy Kei I’m thinking of? Whatever it is, I really like it, and it was my inspiration for these pictures of Kanade.
Kanade is borrowing one of Celeste’s dresses which suits her surprisingly well!
She looked really nice from far away too, but my lens doesn’t capture that so well. I keep saying I’ll get another lens, BUT NO.
Then my camera battery died.
Thank you for looking!
