Werepuppy's (Attempt At) Doll-A-Day 2019!
#1
Alliecat is to blame for this. I will say now that a lot of these photos will be me relying on my backlog for as long as I can before I start taking new stuff and... not all of them are that great to be honest. No, seriously, a lot of the times my photography is just really boring. It's a standard shot and that's it. I'm not the best at coming with new scenarios, though I can keep to a narrative so go figure. Some may pop up here that have been in Life In The Room but I'll do my best to avoid that where and when I can. If you have any questions about my collection, feel free to put them to me and I will do my best to answer them. 

Some days may have no posts from me because... well I'm autistic and I suffer badly from depression and anxiety, and just some days are harder than others. But I will do my best to keep going. 

So, since this is the 2nd... I owe you two photos. (Oh, also, as I live in Scotland, I am on GMT so I may be ahead of some of you for photo posting. Then again, I may be behind others.)

1. A Ghastly Trio

The granddaughter of Death.
The owner of the Haunted Mansion
An Addams.
Life is always Halloween

2. Kicking Out Of The Screen

Yankumi can break the fourth wall with a roundhouse kick

ETA: While the idea is in my head, I'll use this first post as a way of keeping track of any newcomers this year. I'll state the type of doll, what I've called them, and date of arrival. I'll also keep a list of 'wanted' dolls, since that would be a good way of keeping track of those as well. As well as whatever has left my collection.

The Halloween ladies are beautiful and the 'breaking the fourth wall' one is hilarious! I hope that you can make this a pleasant routine that will bring you at least a little ease! I'm rooting for you!

Love kicking at the screen, action shots are devilishly tricky and you’ve done a good one here.

You live on the Prime Meridian! That is so cool! The Beginning and End point of Time!

You live in Scotland! That is so cool... too! Or maybe flat-out cold a lot of the time. Now I shall be hearing all your dialog in my head in a Harry Lauder brogue. (Yeah, I know, my Scotland references are ancient. But then, so is almost everything in Scotland.)

I had a cheese and tomato toastie at a little roadside restaurant next to Loch Ness once.

Anyway, of course I love it that you are joining us for A Doll A Day! (Thank you, Alliecat, for being so persuasive!)

And I love it even more that your first post is totally morbid!

The "kicking out the fourth wall" photo is cool both on a photographic and a conceptual level.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Yay for dolly enabling! It's so much fun to be able to share photos and see others doing it and having fun. Don't worry if you can't do one EVERY day, werepuppy -- life has a habit of intervening in our dolly fun and if some days you just don't feel like it, don't panic -- it's supposed to be fun, not stressful smile
I like the kicking shot too -- fun pose. (Is that MTM Lea or does it just look like her?)

Echoing others - it’s supposed to be fun, not stressful.

Love the action shot - I think you’ve given Elfy some ideas. LOL

Susan, Wednesday, and Gracey always seem to photograph well, which I am glad of. Hope the kick didn't hit anyone! And thank you!

Thank you! She kept falling over as I tried to get it. Like, literally after that was taken, she fell over again.

And now you all know why the Doctor visits here so often. And yeah, it's cold here a lot. Also old. Lot of old stuff. Did you see Nessie? She can be a bit shy. but she also likes photobombing so.... 

I had to post the Hallowe'en ladies first, they are my style. My Goth game may not work in my clothes but it will be there in my dolls! And thank you!

Thank you for enabling! And yes, it is MTM Lea! Though she lost her body to re-body a Mulan (because Mulan needs to be able to kick arse, and because Lea had a ridiculously hard head - filled with glue. Mattel's glue head issue has made me get rid of a lot of dolls over the years...)

Hee, she really is. I made my Lea into Yankumi from the manga/anime/j-drama Gokusen. She's the heir to a Yakuza clan who happens to teach maths, generally to a bunch of delinquents. She's a badass, but also a total dork, and honestly, I just love characters like that.

I coulda used skills like that when I was teaching.

I think every teacher wishes for skills like that at some point... Though they are hard to replicate in dolls ><

Wow. Oh My Mine wasn't full of glue but it was really, REALLY hard to get off, with that huge insert. I got her for her body because Dawn came as just a head, and then another kind DollyMarketer gave me a body, so Lea got to keep hers.
Nice action shot.

Glad to see you joining in the photo fun! Love the actions shots. I admit I've gotten lazy and frequently don't bother with difficult poses any more.

That was nice for you and for Lea! IDK I just don't ex-pect a lot from Mattel quality wise anymore. And thank you!

Sometimes it is just enough of an effort to get them balanced.

I returned to the Dumpling Dolls stand while in London in 2017. It's still amazing. This time I picked up a Toast Solider. His name is Maxwell, Max for short.
