We have a really nice Botanical Gardens near the park in my town, and the other day the park(called Indian Springs) had an Indian festival. I brought my Tiger Lily, Lyris, in her stock outfit thinking maybe there would be something there I could photograph her with, but the festival was actually quite boring.

The friend that I went with and I ended up going over to the Botanical Gardens instead and I took some pictures of Lyris in the spare outfit I brought for her. I've taken my dolls there many times in the past(I have a whole album for this place on flickr with various photos from the past six or so years, if you want to check it out. ) but I haven't shared any of the photos anywhere besides flickr. I've been wanting to post more photos on the doll forums lately, so I figured I'd share some of the photos I took of Lyris at the park!

She went on many adventures, from riding an elephant,

and hanging out with Buddha.

She chilled with the penguins

and attempted to ride a bike that was much too large!

Although I did get something sharp and pointy stuck in my knee that I have yet to get out, and ended up ripping open the back of my pants completely and didn't notice until we went out to eat and someone in the restaurant pointed it out to me, it was still a very nice day. I'm sure Lyris had a much better time than I did! ^^

Thanks for looking!
Fun! My favorite:

My feedback:

Join us at the Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Event in June 2022. The theme is Magical Candy Thunderstorm.
Haha, thank you! That one was my friend's idea.
Tiger Lily is such a lovely doll & I especially love your Lyris because of her eyes. They are stunning. My favourite photo is the elephant I think smile

Thank you so much!! <3 I've fallen so much more in love with Lyris since I gave her those eyes. That photo is my favorite as well!
Oooh, I would love to have a botanical garden to take dolls to!! What a great collection of statues to pose with. Looks like a really fun outing.

LOL Reminds me of a shipmate who completely split his shorts... had them all patched up with duct tape for most of the passage.
Hope your knee gets better!

Sometimes soaking in a hot bath will get a thorn out. One of my enduring childhood memories is getting a thorn stuck in my heel, and being absolutely TERRIFIED when someone (Dad or Grandma? ) mentioned getting it out with a needle. Mom dumped me in a hot bath and the next thing we knew the thorn was just floating around in the water. The heat had swollen it out.
I'll definitely try that, thanks for the advice! It's starting to come up a little on its own, now, so maybe a bath will finish it off.
Lovely photoshoot! the second pose with the elephant is my favourite, she has the famous uh-oh look which seems very realistic when being lift up in the air.

Hope the thorn came out with the hot bath!!
You say the festival was boring, but you got such awesome photos! This is my favorite:

Did you cut Lyris' stock wig or re-wig? Either way, she looks fantastic.

Thank you all!!

Lyris's wig is actually Chill's stock wig that has been cut very sloppily. I've been meaning to get her a new wig forever, she's certainly earned it at this point!
