I had a fabulous day at the beach for my 56th birthday. I already made a post with photo’s about the day, if you want to see: http://isitteatimeyet.blogspot.com/2011/11/my-56th-birthday.html
I brought Yorik and Evie along, but there were enough people around that I did not feel comfortable doing a photo shoot. Especially so many teens…they are the ones that irk me the most because they love to tease and I have already dealt with their rude comments as it is. But I have to say that taking bjd’s to the beach is high risk as it is. While we have a full canopy cabana, the sun is constantly hitting the dolls, no matter how careful I am about keeping them in the shade. Several times I saw them getting full sunlight and it made me jump up and put them back in the shade and I felt like I was protecting vampires from the sun! lol.
I took a few photo’s only to try and capture their very different skin colours. Yorik is pink, Evie is yellow. I mean really yellow. Almost glow in the dark yellow. But in photo’s I cannot capture it as I see it in person.
Here they are in my beach bag on the way to the beach.
You can sort of see it here.
I took a few photo’s of them together, but the photo blends their skin colours and it’s just not so pronounced. One remarkable thing though, it doesn’t bother me at all about their scale (head differences) anymore. I just love Yorik for himself, pin head and all.
BTW, I did give him a tattoo:
it is only a vinyl sticker, but I may trace it and fill it in with pencil someday.
This is the first male bjd I have been around that didn’t look so feminine or like a young boy. I really like his look. And Evie is refilling my imagination with all kind of ideas, one that I will reveal eventually, once I get Yorik’s story going. Husband and I are still drafting the story and having a blast doing it together.
I wrote this all this morning, but got involved in baby stuff and in the meantime a wig I had ordered for Evie came. I had forgotten about it and was puzzled as I would not have ordered a blonde wig. I looked it up, it was a brown wig I had ordered. I contacted the company about it.
In the meantime I tried it on……
I was really taken aback…not by the wig but by the immediate change in her skin tone! The blonde shade seemed to pull out all yellow. So the black wig must have enhanced it.
I pushed her eyes up a bit and the blue became more noticeable. Wow, what a transformation! I am keeping this wig, but it will have to be cut, it is too silky to be as long as it is,
