New Custom!!!

Hmm, who can this be??

It's Danielle!!

Danielle is my lookalike doll, but her original wig didn't match my hair at all anymore, so she got an upgrade. XD Her wig is the "chocolate cake" wig from Beautifully Custom. I was afraid it would be a bit thin since its a cheaper wig, but it is very thick and super soft!!! 

The wig was packaged very nicely and included a little pink bow!! 
(The bow she is wearing now was the one that came with Kennedy's wig)

What are your opinions on AG's upcoming custom doll line??
What does your dream custom look like??
(P.S. Happy late 4th of July!!)

Kennedy Phot Dump??

 Kennedy with a flower crown is my new favorite thing.

 (Peep the blanket I made a few posts back)

Special thanks to my internet bestie Bella for giving me the motivation to blog again. I've been trying to keep this blog up and running, but I've had some personal and family stuff going on. Thanks for dealing with my random absences. On a lighter note, I have a late 4th of July post featuring my newest custom that should be up soon!!

Star for a day: a photostory

 (Kimi's Point of View)

I was outside taking a walk when I ran into Alexandria. She had been at a friend's house working on some homework. "Hey Alexandria!!" I waved.

"Hey Kimi, what's up?" she asked.
"Nothing much, I was just out for a walk." I replied, eyeing her outfit.
"Hey, your outfit looks like something the new Girl of the year would wear!!" I joked.

Alexandria looked down at her outfit and giggled. "It kinda does, doesn't it??" She laughed.
"I have an idea, do you have a marker in your bag??" Alexandria shrugged and handed her bag to me.

I grabbed a washable marker and a pair of reading glasses from the bookbag and pulled out my phone.

 "Reporter Z Yang here with the famous dancer and poet Gabriela McBride!!" I shouted as I began recording.

 Alexandria began a fit of giggling and started dancing, ending with an exaggerated bow.

While we were recording more videos we didn't even notice Emma Jane bounding
up to us, Pepper at her heels. "What are you guys doing?" she asked, a look of confusion spread across her face.
"We are pretending to be Gabriela and Z!!" Alexandria responded.
"Sounds fun!!! Wait, can I borrow the marker for a moment??
Emma Jane smirked.

 Emma Jane took the marker and scribbled a mass of freckles across her nose and a large freckle above her lip. "Ta-Da!! I'm Tenney Grant!!"
 I pulled out my phone from my pocket and began recording again. "Z again, with a MAJOR bombshell. I am now joined by the talented dancer/poet Gabriela McBride AND the famous singer Tenney Grant!!"
We spent the afternoon taking videos of us badly singing and dancing and attempting to take selfies. (Which is harder than you think since we are dolls and have a natural tendency to look away from the camera...)

 It was fun being famous, even though it was only pretend.
Singing off:
Tenney Emma Jane, Gabriela Alexandria, and Z Kimi.

Hamilton: Burn

I saved every letter you wrote me
From the moment I read them,
I knew you were mine.
You said you were mine.
I thought you were mine.
Do you know what Angelica said
When we saw your first letter arrive?
She said "Be careful with that one, love, He will do what it takes to survive."
 You and your words flooded my senses. 
Your sentences left me defenseless
You built me palaces out of paragraphs
You built cathedrals
I'm re-reading the letters you wrote me
I'm searching and scanning for answers
In every line
For some kind of sign
And when you were mine
The world seemed to..
You published the letters she wrote you
You told the whole world how you brought
This girl into our bed
In clearing your name, you have ruined our lives
Do you know what Angelica said
When she read what you'd done?
She said
"You have married an Icarus
He has flown too close to the sun."
You and your words, obsessed with your legacy...
Your sentences border on senseless
And you are paranoid in every paragraph
How they perceive you
You, you, you...
I'm erasing myself from the narrative
Let future historians wonder how Eliza
Reacted when you broke her heart
You have torn it all apart
I am watching it....
Watching it burn
The world has no right to my heart
The world has no place in our bed
They don't get to know what I said
I'm burning the memories
Burning the letters that might have redeemed you
You forfeit all rights to my heart
You forfeit the place in our bed
You sleep in your office instead
With only the memories
Of when you were mine
I hope that you burn

I hope you enjoyed this photo-shoot!! The song is "Burn" from the Hamilton
musical. :D I posted it on my Instagram and wanted to post it here
as well. What is your favorite musical?? Mine is Hamilton. :3

Tutorial: DIY doll printed blanket

Hello everyone!! Recently, I made a printed blanket for my dolls using fabric paint and old scraps of fabric, and I decided to make a tutorial on it!! :3
Let's get started!! <3

Kennedy is modeling the blanket for us. :)
What you will need:
• Fabric 
• Fabric paint (any color)
• paintbrush
• stamp
• cardboard
• needle and thread (or sewing machine)
• (optional) if you don't have a stamp: scissors, craft foam, and hot glue

I wanted to make a blanket with the Voltron (a favorite show of mine) logo, so I cut it out on a peice of craft foam, made another, cut out a circle bigger than the logo, and glued them together. Instant stamp. :P
I didn't have a desk to work on, but it is probably recommended. I laid a peice of cardboard (or a folder) beneath the fabric so the paint won't leak through onto your workspace. (Or carpet, in my case)

Take your paintbrush and fabric paint, and paint onto the stamp. (I just started out with a tiny bit of fabric paint and added more as needed.)

Stamp it onto the fabric, and you have your logo!! It doesn't always stamp perfectly, so you may have to go over it with the paintbrush a bit to fix any imperfections.

And then....copy it a few million times. XD 

Almost done!!

Once you finish stamping it, hang it up or lay it somewhere safe to dry!! (I also made a shirt using the same pattern) 

The fabric I used frays easily, so you may want to take a needle and thread/sewing machine to hem the edges. All done!! 
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!!
~Marissa <3

P.S. What is your favorite show to watch currently?? Mine is Voltron, Gravity falls, and the Flash. :P

My thoughts on Z

Hello!! Long time no post, I know. But I am back!! I will be posting from my phone for a while, until I save up for an actual laptop. I haven't done a "opinion on the new releases" type post in forever, so why not!!!

First off, the lovely Z herself!! I already have #64, so I won't be getting her. (plus she has the curse of the permapanties) but I think she is adorable!! I love how AG is including the agig community with Z. I have heard several people say she is essentially 64 just with a birthmark, but I noticed her bangs are on the other side than 64's are.
Z's accessories: Even though they reused the glasses and the jacket looks identical to Lanie's and the old MAG jacket, this set is still cute. 
Z's Sightseeing outfit: Umm...not really feeling the vibe here... Is this what kids wear nowadays?? (Wow I sound old) Because I sure don't wear anything like that. I kinda wish they would have given Z clothing that actual kids wear. (More converse, less neon colors people!!) 
Z's Filming accessories: I LOVE THIS SET SOO MUCH OH MY GOODNESS. I want it. 0.0 The whole set (minus the backpack of course) is black!! Not the usual bright unrealistic colors!! This is definitely on my wish list. (Look at the little sticker like designs on the backpack!!)
Z's Scooter: Ehhh. It's not anything special for me, it's just your average scooter, BUT the little action cam is cool.
Z's Dog: Ah yes, the very creative and totally original Dalmatian dog. Again, nothing really special to me. 
Z's Easy Breezy outfit: Umm, what?? No offense, this whole outfit is a train wreck. There are so many different colors and prints, it just doesn't work in my opinion. Plus didn't they used to have a MAG outfit called the easy breezy outfit??Looking at her collection, it appears Z likes mismatched outfits??
Z's Desk: This is cute. I'm glad that it is wooden, not plastic. The laptop is cute.

Well, that's it for my thoughts!! Would you like to see more posts like this?? (On Tenney and Logan, Felicity, and Gabriela) What is your favorite thing from Z's collection?? Mine is definitely the filming set. :3 Bye for now!!
