Aijo's Dolls (updated 2 Sep. 2022, p. 13)
Sorry t hear about your mother. I lost mine some years ago. It can be hard to deal with.
Your Christmas shot is great, we do it with our crew, they’re hard work, but also fun.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Your photos are fantastic, and so vibrant.

Lovely photos, as always! The Christmas family photo looks classy - and Nanette pays a beautiful tribute to your mother. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss - November marked my tenth year without my mother (it's unbelievable to write that number down), and the void is still there. It will always be. Even if losing our elders is how things naturally happen, it still feels so unnatural to be without someone who, as Alliecat has very well described, is one of the foundation stones of your life and has always been there until that day. I'm sending some strength over your way, in hope it will help you cope with that void and the feeling of disbelief.

Nice black backgrounds! Makes for dramatic, eye-catching images!
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Love Gianna, everything about that pic is just so wow!

Very nice portraits. Are you using additional lamps for the black-background ones, or just flash on/off camera?
They all look very chic.

Ooh, I especially love that pic of Gianna!

Ohhh, Shion is still massively enabling, but this time little Iolite stole the show! I see her hair has grown - I think this new, longer wig really suits her!

@Loona: You're welcome to go out and buy that Yuri! She really is lovely! LOL Yes, Iolite's hair has grown some! I wanted something a bit more polished for her. ^^

Hello everyone!
Last weekend, I was working on a diorama project for Sawyer's apartment. I made an apartment diorama for her back in 2013, so this is the updated and ex-panded version!  Happy I made much of the furniture with the exception of two chairs, a nightstand, a bookcase, and table. It was a very fun--albeit time-consuming project, but I am so happy with how it turned out, and I can't wait to use it in my upcoming photostory! Enjoy!

Both versions look terrific. The whole setting is absolutely fabulous!! So many little details. Did you make the couch, bed…?
The door is probably wider than it looks in the photo, but it made me smile thinking, imagine having a head so big you would have to worry about getting through doorways! xp LOL
Have you made other rooms?

Thank you Allie! Yes, I made most of the furniture, with the exception of a couple chairs, a table, a nightstand, and a bookcase. Everything else is handmade crafting!

The door was really fun to make. I did have to use a doll for reference; that doorways has to be big enough for those big heads after all! LOL

Not yet. I am in the process of planning some other dioramas and collecting materials. smile
