Wow, they really are the Mean Girls in your crew, aren't they. Poor Blue. Her ex-pression and pose are great -- you can feel her annoyance. I feel kinda sorry for her. I'd like to see what she comes up with for a new look.
Can't remember if I was looking the other day on my teeny phone screen or not but I only just clued in that the guitar has those little cross-bones. Ha! Maybe she needs a piratey look. What does pirate-metal music sound like....?

At least Blue can play guitar. I bet the other 2 sound like Bill & Ted before they learned to play.

I like that idea! I wonder if I can find anything to make that work?

They're depending on getting Eddie van Halen for their band... but... that's probably not gonna happen now.

13 April – Carly Casts a Long Shadow

Has iCarly Fashion Switch Carly appeared yet in ADAD 2021? I don't remember, but here she is now; or again. Whatever.

Well, that's a neat lighting effect! I'm curious how many takes to get the camera to do what you wanted!

Is Carly joining the band? That’s a pretty cool intro shot if she is.

Love the ending of tge comic. The two girls really were totally awful to Blue. But I do like her potential new Opera look.

Oh! The Carly shot is fabulous! How long did it take you to get it?

Carly and my little Panasonic point-n-shoot camera work pretty well together. The tricky part was lining up the shot so the sun glare spot was not overpowering but not entirely blocked.

It does look like she is emerging from backstage with a dramatic tracking spotlight, doesn't it?

Yes, the Dals were not very nice; but then again, Blue Girl "borrowed" something without asking!

Wow. Looks like she might be thinking about hopping in that thing and driving away.

Things will get straightened up now that Maudlynne is on the case.

It looks just like the dolls-corner at our house. Which is gradually enveloping the lounge-room, except where the library off-shoot is fighting back LOL

I can't blame her. But... where is there to go?

That is my hope.

Oh My  I would not want to get caught in that cross-fire!

15 April – Integrity Toys Dynamite Girls Spooky Sooki

Sooki had a chance to get away. She could have escaped via eBay, but despite being priced at a very reasonable price, she chose to stay.

While Dynamite Girls have been discontinued, Integrity Toys have recently resurrected the Sooki character with a new limited edition as part of their The Industry line. She can be found on the secondary market at prices between $400 and $500 USD.

Wow. I still cannot ever see myself spending that much. Not even for a Yummy Sweets. (Although if Hot Toys finally made a Neytiri... blush )
For the millionth, time, nice lighting. You should do some kind of tutorial on "moody lighting" smile

Yeah, doll prices are becoming insane. Apparently there's a market for what amount to $400 Barbie dolls.

Two techniques to the lighting:
1) Set the ex-posure compensation on the camera to -1-2/3 stops and spot meter off the highlights.
2) Single point light source (in this instance an inex-pensive desk lamp) and a reflector to somewhat fill in the shadows (I used the glossy side of a cardboard breakfast cereal box).
