Title: The "Sixty Days of KingTut's Sinthetics" Project
Post by: KingTut on June 08, 2012, 09:26:58 PM
Today marks the start of my "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia KingTut's Sinthetics" project.  This is a challenge to myself to post sixty photo sets of my incredible Sinthetics dolls over a period of sixty days.  This challenge is similar to the "take a picture every day for a year" concept.

So, beginning with the next post, I will be contributing a photo set including Ashleigh and/or Sinthia (EDIT: or Bailey or Miranda) for the next sixty days.  I'll be the first to admit that it is an ambitious goal, but it's one I believe I can achieve.  Posing and photographing dolls is something I greatly enjoy.  And now that I have a silicone princess to work with, I have so many things I want to try with her.  So this is not a "working" challenge, but an exercise in creativity and a challenge to keep the creative juices flowing.

In addition to Ash and Sin, it's very likely you will see Rose, Jasmine, the small dolls and, of course, the Pyramid Felines.  There will be a lot of indoor as well as outdoor shoots -- a few of which will use the "guerilla shoot" approach taken by Matt and Bronwen.

What follows are photo stories, photo essays and fashion shoots.  Some will be everyday events, some will be funny, some will be very clinical.  Don't expect the same type of shoot every day -- this is a chance to stretch my wings, so change will be a constant.

For the most part, the stories will be in character -- I won't comment on the photography, techniques or fashions here.  I will be annotating the photos in my gallery, though, and you will find a wealth of information about the shoots, locations, clothes, lighting and mistakes there.

So, without any further ado, I present "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia KingTut's Sinthetics".

DAY 1: HOMECOMING

This is it!  Today is the day.  The day that Ashleigh and Sinthia arrive to come live with me here at the Pyramid.

There's a soft knock at the door...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5274.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5274.jpg)

Hello!  Are you KingTut?

Yes!  Ashleigh, it is so wonderful to finally meet you in person.

And... this is the Pyramid?  I was expecting something in more of a stone and torches motif.

It's more of an honorary title.  But whether or not it is an actual pyramid, it is my home -- and now it's yours too!


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5281.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5281.jpg)

It's lovely!  Do we really get to live here?

Absolutely!  Looks Ashleigh up and down.  Do you honestly believe I could turn you away? 

Oh! Where is Sinthia?


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5286~0.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5286~0.jpg)

She's taking care of the taxi driver.  She's not the type to knock if she has an invitation -- she'll be bursting in here any second now.

You really are beautiful.  And that is a great outfit!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5289.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5289.jpg)

(Blushing)  I don't know what to say.  Thank you!

Oh wow -- who is she? 

Ashleigh walks over to a bookshelf and picks up a female action figure.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5292.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5292.jpg)

Is she a doll?

Yes.  She's called "Black Angel".  She was very hard to find.  I found her in a shop in Japan -- as far as I know, she's the last retail doll of her kind.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5295.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5295.jpg)

She's very pretty.  And her outfit -- is that aligator skin?

It's meant to look that way, but it's vinyl.  That outfit is part of the reason I worked so hard to find her -- I've not seen another doll outfit like it.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5297.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5297.jpg)

Are these knives she has?  She looks like some kind of fighter or assassin.  I don't think I've ever seen a doll like this before.

Do you like her?


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5302.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5302.jpg)

Yes!  I do!  Do you have others?

(Embarrassed) Um... yeah... About 130 more...

The front door opens and then almost slams closed.

Ashleigh flops into the nearby leather chair.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5308.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5308.jpg)

There's Sinthia.  I'm gonna take a load off.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5362.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5362.jpg)

Hey Tut!  This is a great place!

Thank you.  Sinthia, you are GORGEOUS!  And what a fun outfit!


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5364.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5364.jpg)

Wow, now that's a welcome!  This is just something I threw together for the road.  It's been a wild ride getting here.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5305~0.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5305~0.jpg)

(To herself, but just loud enough to hear) She gets "gorgeous", I get "beautiful"...  I can live with that.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5373.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5373.jpg)

Hey, that is cool! 

Sinthia walks over to a large print of a tiger.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5388.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5388.jpg)

Tut!  Take my picture next to this big guy!


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5312.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5312.jpg)

Yep.  We are definitely home. 

Ashleigh smiles.

Wow!

They are so beautiful it is stunning. To see your 2Ds come to life has been a pleasure. I was particularly awakened by the soft appearance of the arms in Asleigh's photo when she was holding the small doll. You must be a very happy man. Awesome-looking house, by the way.

Thanks guys.  I'm still learning how to pose these gals, but honestly, they are so cooperative.  There are a few errors here that I'll point out in the Gallery comments later this weekend (backlight without a compensating fill, wigs too far back, etc.) and I'm having a bit of trouble getting life into Sinthia in this set.  But that's nitpicking.  I'm glad you are all enjoying them!  I'm having a blast doing this.

Im speechless, absolutely amazing shots. The subtly in the poses is superb. So happy you are enjoying them.

Thanks, Matt -- that means an awful lot to me.  And as you can see, I finally did get her out of the box.  :D

I'm speechless too, KT : For a first photo session you set the bar high...

You're going to stimulate and boost our creativity, and I'll praise you for that. No offense to anyone, but pics of the girls lying on their bed is a bit boring in the end, and you prove such manikins can be used for artistic projects in a very efficient way.

I'm looking forward to discover your next shots and to talk with you on the chat...

Ha, new you would have fun  with your new arrivals..... :)

Absolutely wonderful first set and a story line too.

Ashleigh is so endearing with a soft personality whereas I think Sinthia is going to lead you firmly by the nose.
Two differing great characters you have pulled out

You have set your self quite an objective and the way its started looks like where in for a lot of stunning photo sessions.

There can be absolutely no doubt that Sinthetics exist and have definately arrived in force on the doll scene.

Congratiulations KingTutt and and course all the crew at Sinthetics

Great idea, Tut... just don't burn yourself out.   :o

I love this casual - POV style of shooting pictures. The angles replicate the way you'd experience the Manikins in person, interacting with them, giving you an even greater appreciation for their realism. And their realism is second only to nature. I dare say that the girls have so many lifelike qualities, and bestowed upon them with such a masterful hand that they're realer than real.  :P

The 2D body is perfect. I can't imagine what those supple curves must feel like.  :-\

I can't wait to see more!

Excellent work, King!

I've always loved the doll photo-storys, something that we've not had a lot of lately.

This is going to be the epic thread of ODC for some time to come.

Wow, amazing work KT! From the pics, you get the impression that they're actually real- love the commentary as well. Can't wait for the upcoming sets.

Glad to hear they've made it to you without incident & that they're settling in so well.

I must say, I love the look of this body- so realistic. The curve of the arms & shoulders esp- lovely muscle tone. ;D

DAY 2: ASHLEIGH MEETS ROSE AND JASMINE

Ashleigh: So where is the bedroom?  I could really use a long soak right now.

KingTut: Down the hall and on the left.  Just drop your things anywhere.  I'll be in in a second.

Ashleigh walks down the hall to the bedroom and is surprised to find it occupied.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5316-Edit.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5316-Edit.jpg)

Ashleigh, pointing at Rose: Who is that?

Rose looks up from her book.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5319~0.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5319~0.jpg)

Rose: I'm Rose.  You must be Ashleigh.  After all this time, I'm delighted to finally meet you.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5318.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5318.jpg)

Ashleigh (taken aback, but miffed): You've heard of me?  I certainly haven't heard of you!  What's going on around here?

Rose: I live here -- and we've been expecting you for some time -- and Sinthia, too.  Is she here?


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5323.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5323.jpg)

Ashleigh:  You live here?  But... this is supposed to be my home!

Jasmine jumps up on the bed beside Rose.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5327.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5327.jpg)

Jasmine:  Hey!  Are you Ashleigh?  I'm Jasmine!  We're so glad to finally meet you!

Rose (under her breath): Apparently she's not all that glad to meet us.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5329.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5329.jpg)

Ashleigh: There's MORE of you?!  (waggles her index finger back and forth)


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5336~0.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5336~0.jpg)

Ashleigh: No!


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5330.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5330.jpg)

Ashleigh: Absolutely not!


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5325.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5325.jpg)

Ashleigh: No, no, no, no, NO!

Jasmine: But Ashleigh, we're a family here -- and now you are part of it.

Rose: She's right -- I couldn't have said it better myself.  Welcome to the Pyramid family.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5340.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5340.jpg)

Ashleigh: But... family?  I... I...  Really?


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5350.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5350.jpg)

Ashleigh:  I'm sorry.  I didn't understand.  Thank you.

Jasmine springs across the bed and hugs Ashleigh.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5357.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5357.jpg)

Jasmine: I'm so glad you're finally home!


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5359.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5359.jpg)

Ashleigh:  So am I, Jasmine.  So am I.

Haha, classic. Glad to see Rose and Jasmine got in on the action. Jasmine's such a sweety, love that second last pic. Always astounds how much personality you can get out of those two. Can't help wondering how Percy the python will react to the newcomers :D

 :D Yay King Tut!!!!!!! Congratulations on your two new beautiful ladies. They are exquisite!!!! I've always loved your
photo shoots of Jasmine and Rose! I look forward to seeing more of the whole family.  ^-^ You are a master at posing,
and those expressions are priceless! How do you do it?  :)  :-*

Very sweet story, Tut! Ashleigh's immediate response to your Teddybabes reminds me of her question "do you like her" about the Black Angel doll in the hallway. Her soft but sometimes jealous personality is really shining through.

Thank you everybody.  I'm loving your reactions almost as much as the shoots themselves.  :)

Thanks LL.  I must admit that after I posed that shot I got a bit misty.  I thought about taking a picture showing the hug from the other side.  It was also very sweet, but didn't fit the needs of the story.  I'm kind of kicking myself for not doing it now, though -- it would have been a nice supplemental picture in the gallery.

DAY 3: BODY DETAILS

Today, Sinthia is going to take you on a tour of her many notable body features, some of which are standard on the Sinthetics body 2D and others that were custom applied for her.  Strike a pose, my dear!

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5405~0.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5405~0.jpg)


The first stop on our tour is not actually on her body, but is Sinthia's face.  If you look closely, you will notice two custom features: much of her face is covered in light-colored freckles, and she has 3D painted eyebrows.  The 3D paint process as applied by Matt gives the illusion of real hair -- even in real life.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5411.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5411.jpg)


Our next stop is her lovely hands.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5413.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5413.jpg)

Note the knuckles and joint creases.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5419.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5419.jpg)

Even the nailbeds look right under her French manicure.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5422.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5422.jpg)

The finger detailing even includes some application of color to add to the realism.

As we turn the hand over, we see an incredibly realistic palm.  No tricks or stunt doubles here, this is Sinthia's palm.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5501.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5501.jpg)

Again, note the application of pigment to add realism.

The only place where we lose a bit of the realism is when looking at the fingernails straight on where you can see the silicone adhesive that was used to bond the fingernails into the nailbeds.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5512.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5512.jpg)


Next stop: Feet!

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5478.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5478.jpg)

Like the palms, the bottoms of Sinthia's feet are incredibly detailed, with ridging and creases like that found on any adult woman's foot.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5484.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5484.jpg)

And again, note the addition of pigment to heighten the realism.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5490.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5490.jpg)

The top of her foot is dainty and beautifully formed.  I should take note that the toes on the 2D cannot be posed like the fingers -- they are floppy and don't have posing wires in them.  I should also note that some of her toes are attached to each other!  They can be separated by gently pulling them apart, but I believe this is intentional.

EDIT: I realize from some of the comments following this post that the mention of floppy toes may be perceived as a negative.  That is certainly not the case!  The toes tend to naturally do the right thing, but can't be posed like fingers.  The floppiness just came as a surprise to me.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5589.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5589.jpg)

Above is one more view of her feet with Sinthia posed on her belly.


We'll take a quick trip up from Sin's feet to look at her lovely leg.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5493.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5493.jpg)

Apologies for the lighting.  :(  But you can see that her legs have beautiful, natural curves.  This is despite the fact that Matt had to lengthen the legs of the 2D from the original 3D printout by three inches in order to match the expected height of the doll to 5' 5"/1.65m.


I'm going to ask Sinthia to turn on her side for a bit so we can get a good look at the freckling on her shoulders.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5514.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5514.jpg)

The freckles on Sinthia's back, shoulders and upper arms are a custom feature and this is the first time Matt has ever done them.  They were done in the same color as on Sinthia's face -- about two shades darker than her Peaches skin tone and a bit more yellow-brown.  (Note that Ashleigh has darker freckles on her face.)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5516.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5516.jpg)

Matt told me that Bronwen had always done the freckles on Sinthetics faces, so he was a bit unsure of how to approach doing them.  So when people visited the shop he would ask them "do you have freckles?" and if they said yes, he'd have them remove their shirts so he could use them as a model for my girls!

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5519.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5519.jpg)

As you can see, it worked.  Her freckles are wonderfully realistic.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5528.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5528.jpg)


Let's heat things up a bit and move on to what are now being referred to as "Tut's Tits".

The first thing to notice is that the 2D breasts have a very natural lay to them.  They don't have the look of being the product of plastic surgery.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5497.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5497.jpg)

But here's the custom part: look at the areola below.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5423.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5423.jpg)

Notice that it is proportional to the size of the breast.  I just measured both and they are right at 2" in diameter.  I'd asked Matt to use this larger areolae diameter to better match the size of Sinthia's breasts.

Now look closer...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5431.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5431.jpg)

Do you see how the pigment fades from brown to pink and almost fades out but then is surrounded by a darker "halo"?  Almost like it was drawn in with eyeliner pencil?  I asked Matt specifically to apply this pigmentation treatment.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5432.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5432.jpg)

I noticed this effect often and have always found it attractive.  Apparently I'm not the only one who has noticed it.  Plastic surgeons will often take advantage of the areolae ring for performing breast enhancement surgery -- effectively hiding the surgical scar in the ring rather than in the fold under the breast.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5438.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5438.jpg)

Matt told me that just about everyone coming into the shop commented on how good the areolae looked on this doll.  The effect is subtle, but it is very natural-looking and attractive.  I'm very pleased with how they turned out.  :)  And here at ODC, thanks to B-Zilla, this paint application is becoming known as the "Tut's Tits" option.


Before jumping to the naughty bits, let's take a side trip to Sinthia's navel.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5441.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5441.jpg)

What can I say?  I love a nice-looking "innie" navel, and this one is perfect.  While you can't see it in these photos, the navel deforms into a wonderful oblong shape when Sinthia's back is arched.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5446.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5446.jpg)


Okay off to see Sinthia's nether regions...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5452.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5452.jpg)

There are a couple of things to note here.  The first is the bikini patterned, ginger red pubic hair.  This is applied one hair at a time using a special punch to embed each hair into the silicone.  The hair holds very well if left alone, but can be pulled out.  This is a great option for photo dolls, but maybe not so much for "sports" dolls where friction is likely to remove hairs on each use.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5461.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5461.jpg)

The other thing to notice is that this doll has the removable "Honey Pot" insert.  When Sinthia's legs are together, as they are in this photo, the illusion of a living pubic region is almost indisputable.  As the legs are spread wider apart, stretching the labia majora, the illusion begins to dissolve as the labia minora stay centered rather than stretching with the rest of the pelvic region.  For most photo use, though, the honey pot is still a great option.  And for a sports doll, it's a hygienic necessity.


Finally, let's take a look at the voluptuous 2D butt.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5535.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5535.jpg)

The butt is shapely and pleasantly bubble-shaped without being huge.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5538.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5538.jpg)

In the photo above, you can see the "Baloon Knot" insert that comes standard with every Sinthetic.  I may have put it in wrong for this photo.  :-[

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5587.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5587.jpg)

Here you can see the butt from a doggy position.  And now you can see how the illusion of a real pubis is broken when the legs are spread on an insert doll.  This doesn't happen on a doll with built-in entries.  And, while I haven't tried it, there may be a way to temporarily cement the honey pot in a way that will allow it to deform with the labia majora, preserving the illusion.


And now, just for fun and because Sinthia was in the mood for it, a few more pictures of Sinthia in a doggy crawl.

This new set of photos is a wonderful review, thanks a lot KT. I think it's the first time a Sinth is detailed so well.

I'd like to see this improved and I'm going to ask to Sinthetics if the nails could be glued in a temporary and much more discrete way - knowing the consequence of such a choice.

I'm not sure wires could be a huge plus in matter of poses, but in strengthening them they would be less fragile. I'm pretty sure if some toes are attached together it's intentional indeed, to prevent damages during dressing for instance.

I do agree ! Too many dolls have bombshells and that doesn't look realistic at all.

I'm certainly not advocating wired toes.  The floppy toes were just a surprise.  They are actually very well-behaved and I'm guessing they don't have wires so that there are fewer problems with closed-toe shoes and, as you mentioned reduced damage when dressing.

In the many images I've looked at, I haven't seen this happen before.  Is this unique to the body 2D?
Title: Re: The "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia" Project
Post by: KingTut on June 11, 2012, 06:48:57 PM
I doubt that it is unique.  Sinthetics photo shoots normally use dolls with built-in entries for just this reason.  The Honey Pot is extremely convenient to clean after use, but since it is removable, it has some limitations to its presentation.  It will look fine as long as the labia majora are firmly against the labia minora, but since the insert is not attached to the outter walls of the opening, it will not move with them.

As I mentioned in the article, there may be a way of temporarily cementing the edges of the Honey Pot to the opening walls, but I haven't tried that yet and there's not a whole lot of materials that bond well to silicone in a temporary fashion.

I wouldn't consider this a defect -- it's a matter of preference.  You are choosing convenience of cleaning after use vs. having a vagina that looks lifelike in all possible poses.

EDIT: Actually there is a bit more to it than that, because I'm sure many are thinking "but your doll is a photo doll -- why did you get a Honey Pot?"  In my case it wasn't for convenience, but variety.  There are already a couple of styles of Honey Pot out there, so if you want to change the look of your doll's vagina, it can be as simple as swapping in a different Honey Pot.  And while I don't currently plan to exercise the option, an insert cavity does support the possibility of presenting the 2D as a transsexual doll.

DAY 4: 2D RANGE OF MOTION -- PART 1: JOINTS

Strap in, this will be a wild ride.  The Gallery for Day 4 has over fifty photos in it, about half of which will show up in this post.  But first I have a couple of warnings.

WARNING #1:  Some photos in this set will show joints posed in a manner that would indicate extreme pain or death for a human being.  While I normally try, even with clinical material, to take an artful approach to the subject matter. it's hard to show full ranges of motion without demonstrating the extremes.  There are photos here of wrists, ankles and necks bent at extreme angles.

WARNING #2: Some of the poses shown are considered advanced poses and should only be attempted if you have lots of experience posing dolls with hidden articulations.  They should not be attempted on your first day with your doll.  Sinthetics recommends that you contact them before attempting the advanced yoga positions shown in Part 2 of this article.


Okay, today is all about range of motion on the Sinthetics body 2D.  We'll start at the top of the body and work our way down.

NECK

There are four separate articulations that can be made on the 2D.  The first two will not be shown -- these are the head articulations.  The head can be swiveled side-to-side 360°, normally allowing the head to look left and right.  There is also a joint at the top of the neck that allows the head to nod forward and backward with a usable range of about 45°.  (It can actually move over 180° with the head detached.) This is separate from the forward and backward motion of the neck itself, which you will see in a second.

The neck itself has two articulations: forward and side-to-side.  On my doll these appear to be the stiffest of all the joints.

Our model today for all of the range of motion pictures will be Ashleigh.  We were going to do these shots in a leotard, but realized that might mask some of the skin deformations and might make it difficult to get the full impact of each pose.  Ashleigh, please pull your hair back so we can view your neck.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5661.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5661.jpg)


First, let's take a look at how the neck can move from it's upright position to a forward position.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5660.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5660.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5667.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5667.jpg)

The range you are seeing in these photos is about 45°.  I'm able to move the neck over 90° without a head, but with the head attached, the range of movement is restricted.


Okay now I'm going to ask Ashleigh to lean her head to her right.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5730.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5730.jpg)

I promise, this doesn't hurt her.  :)  The neck is able to move side-to-side with an overall range of almost 180°.  This goes way beyond a typical human neck.


SHOULDER
The shoulder and hip joints are quite similar in that they both have two separate rotating joints.  Because of this, I recommend that any posing involving the shoulder or hip joints always be started from a home position.  For the shoulders, the home position is with the arm held straight at the sides.  Ashleigh will demonstrate the side rotation first.  Note that the first photo shows the result of moving the arm 90° from the home position.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5621.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5621.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5624.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5624.jpg)

Note the relaxed look of Ashleigh's arm in the second photo, especially the look of her underarm.  This rotation, much like the arm of a clock can move a full 180°.


Now let's move the arm into the same position, only this time, we'll move the arm forward and up, again moving 180°, but using the forward-rotating shoulder joint.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5626.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5626.jpg)

This joint doesn't quite make the full 180° to the top.  Also notice that the skin of the underarm is bunched a bit from the forward and up rotation.  This joint does have some additional range of motion -- it can also move backwards from the home position another 180° to, once again, point straight up from the shoulder.

There's actually a third rotation that happens at or near the shoulder -- this is the rotation that allows the elbow to "point" to the back  or outward.  This rotation has a full 360° range of motion.  I don't have photographs (sorry) but you can best demonstrate it by putting the arm in scarecrow position, with the upper arm pointing straight out from the body, horizontal to the ground, and the lower arm pointing downward.  You can now rotate the lower arm forward or backward through a 360° range.


ELBOW

The elbow pretty much mimics the range of motion of a human elbow.  Depending on your musculature, your elbow has a range of about 160° or a little more.  The 2D elbow makes it to about 150°.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5621.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5621.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5625.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5625.jpg)

The radial/ulnar motions are also jointed in the elbow of the 2D, but since those motions are normally associated with the wrist, we'll discus them in the next section.


WRIST
 
Human wrists have three major articulations:  radial/ulnar rotation, forward/backward from the palm and side-to-side.

The radial/ulnar rotation in humans is generally an almost 180° rotation.  It is the motion that allows you to show your palm up or down without moving your upper arm.  It is the result of the two major bones in the arm, the radius and the ulna, rotating around each other.  I've demonstrated below with my own hand.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5790.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5790.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5792.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5792.jpg)


Ashleigh, unfortunately, does not have that same ability, her radial/ulnar rotation is limited to about 90°, as shown below.  I first discovered this in the Day 1 set when Ashleigh held the small doll.  She couldn't rotate her wrist in the same way that I could rotate mine, so she had to hold the doll differently than you or I normally would in the same situation.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5782.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5782.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5785.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5785.jpg)


Possibly to compensate for the lack of radial/ulnar rotation, Ashleigh has a a ridiculous angular rotation range.  I'll warn you ahead of time, these photos are not for the squeamish!

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5797.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5797.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5794.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5794.jpg)


The 2D does not support a side-to-side motion.  In humans this motion is limited to about 30° of motion at the most.  The lack of this motion can be compensated for with other wrist motions and the elbow.


WAIST

From my experience with small dolls, I would expect to find three motions on the waist of the 2D: arching (forward/backward rotation), twisting (rotating the shoulders out of line with the hips) and leaning side-to-side  I really haven't gotten a good feel for the twisting motion or leaning motions, so I don't know if they are there or not.  But the arching motion certainly is!

Ashleigh can do a full 90° tummy arch, as you can see in these photos:

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5669.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5669.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5682.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5682.jpg)

Try doing that at home!


HIPS

As I mentioned earlier, the hips, like the arms, have two rotational joints, allowing for forward and sideways rotations.  And again, I strongly recommend performing all poses from a home position.  In this case, the standing straight leg position, with the legs pointing straight down from the torso.

Let's look first at the front/back rotation.  It seems that Ashleigh has no real backward movement at her hips, so she is incapable of doing a front-back split.  (She can do a side split as we'll see in a moment.)  The thigh can rotate forward through about 135° of arc before her own cores and silicone restrict further movement.  Ashleigh decided to have a little fun demonstrating this motion:

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5599.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5599.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5603.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5603.jpg)

Note that she is performing this pose with no assistance.


The other hip rotation is side-to side.  Ashleigh is able to rotate a full 90° to the side with each leg, enabling her to do a full split.  Enjoy!

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5684.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5684.jpg)


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5714.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5714.jpg)

This pose was a bit of an exertion for Ashleigh, as you will see if you look at the related pictures in the Day 4 Gallery.  She worked up quite a sweat!


As with the shoulder, there is a third hip rotation.  This is the rotation that allows Ashleigh to swivel her bent lower leg so that she can sit in a lotus position, for example.  The overall rotation is 90° inward from the home position and about 30° outward.   In this picture, you can see the effect of the inward rotation.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5828.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5828.jpg)


KNEES

Ashleigh's knees support two rotations, the angular rotation and a second rotation that allows the foot to point in different directions.

The angular rotation goes from a straight leg position through a backward rotation ending about 150° from the original position.  Ashleigh can't bend her knees so that her calves touch her thighs, but she comes close, and by rotating the hip joint a bit, you can make it look like she achieves the full knee bend.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5640.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5640.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5657.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5657.jpg)


And here are some photos that show the other rotation from the knee.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5802.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5802.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5806.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5806.jpg)



ANKLE

Ashleigh's ankles can do the impossible -- I'll let the pictures do the talking:

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5608.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5608.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5614.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5614.jpg)

And since that last photo was rather unsettling, I'll leave you with a prettier foot position:

This photo series is a real boon for anyone who's thinking about buying one of these Manikins, as the appreciation and attention to detail that's going into each picture is really, really, impressive. You'd be hard pressed to find better illustrations anywhere on the subject.

Very useful tutorial, KT !

About the range of motion related to the head and neck, is the oral insert cut (by Sinthetics or yourself) to allow a 360° rotation ?


The radial/ulnar rotation of the wrists is certainly something to improve in order to get a 180° rotation ; It's really important for a manikin used as a model for photography.


Looking at this pic :

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5657.jpg)

I realize the ends of the feet are completely floppy. So it's not only the toes which have no wires ; A joint is missing in the arch of the foot to allow natural poses. Something to better too in my humble opinion.


Strangely some ranges of motion, like you mentioned, exceed the capacities of the human body. It's useless and perhaps a bit risky for the silicone. Some limitations would be welcome here and there.


The B2D skeleton is really great, and it is probably the best available on the high-end silicone dolls market currently. Since there is no perfection in this world it could be improved and maybe the next generation will surprise us. But what is the most important to me is the reliability of the joints, and only time will show how trustworthy is this skeleton.

Beautifully executed by yourself and Ashleigh.
Why oh why do the manufactures not produce guides like this I am at a loss to understand. ::)

Outstandingly photographed, simply showing the range of movement achievable, and of course with the instruction to start at the home position, essential.
As stated some of the positions are extreme and could result in tears of the silicone.
Funny I have just "found" the radial hip action, the back joint is amazing.

Thank you so much Ashleigh and of course KingTut for putting so much time and trouble into what is turning out to be a very rewarding 60 days.
Kudos Sir.

great shots kt they really help
the only sad think i find is that, in a way dolls have no muscles so when you pose them you dont see parts of the body contracting and changing shape. oh well i guess thats practiclly undoable (i just think it really showes its self when it comes to he bottom or her stomach being posed)

DAY 5: 2D RANGE OF MOTION -- PART 2: YOGA POSES

I'm posting this a bit early today because the photos for Part 2 are already up (I was on a roll, uploading 80 photos) and we had a minor injury here at the Pyramid.  Sinthia cut her left index finger and it required a bit more than a Band-Aid.  She should be fine in a couple of hours, but I'm letting her rest.

So today, Ashleigh will be doing a bonus session stemming from our range of motion study.  It seemed natural to go from that into demonstrating some advanced yoga poses.  We'll be looking at a performing a lotus position and a full stretch.

Before we start, I'm going to repeat the warning from yesterday:

THE MOVES SHOWN BELOW ARE CONSIDERED ADVANCED POSITIONS.  DO NOT ATTEMPT THEM UNLESS YOU HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH HIDDEN JOINTS AND ARTICULATIONS.  THESE MOVES, IF PERFORMED IMPROPERLY, CAN DAMAGE YOUR DOLL'S JOINTS OR OVER-STRESS AND TEAR OR WEAKEN THE SILICONE.

LOTUS POSITION

We'll start with Ashleigh in a relaxed pose with her legs near the home position we discussed in Day 4.  Note how she is supporting herself with her arms to the back.  It's important to let your doll help you with these moves.  The closer you stay to a normal human's movements, the less chance you take of inviting disaster.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5871.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5871.jpg)


Next, we'll turn her right foot sideways so that the top of the foot points out.  Here we are trying to use the radial motion of the hip, not the knee, though if the knee turns too, that's fine.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5872.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5872.jpg)


Next we pull the thigh out toward the body and bend the knee so that the toes are pointing inward.  You will find as you do this, that you will apply more radial motion to the hip.  If you use the bent knee as a kind of handle (like on a faucet) you will find the additional leverage makes this radial motion much easier.  BUT BE CAREFUL!  That same leverage can be used to over-torque the hip.  Take your time, go slow and let your girl tell you when to stop.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5874.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5874.jpg)


Now we repeat the process with Ashleigh's left leg, first doing an outward radial twist on the leg...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5875.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5875.jpg)


...and then drawing the leg inward.  Note that she pulls this leg in a bit farther, preparing to cross her calves, lotus fashion.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5876.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5876.jpg)


Finish the leg portion of the pose by CAREFULLY crossing the feet and calves.  If you feel any resistance or hear creaking, STOP.  She's reached her limit.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5879.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5879.jpg)


Now we'll move the hands into position.  First we'll move the right hand forward and into the gneral position.  At this point, we need to compensate a bit since she's now supporting herself with only one hand, and the final pose is a straight back or slightly bent forward position.  Ashleigh leans forward at the waist now, as you can see by the little pooch in her stomach.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5880.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5880.jpg)


If you don't compensate for the new position correctly, this is likely to happen  :laugh::

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5882.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5882.jpg)


But if you've done everything right, you can move the left hand forward, spend some time fiddling with her fingers and, voila!  A perfect lotus.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5898.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5898.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5900.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5900.jpg)

If you zoom in, you'll see that this was a bit of an exertion for Ashleigh... sweaty doll!



FULL STRETCH

I'm sure there is some fancy yoga name for this pose like "gently sleeping raccoon", but I honestly don't know what that might be.  :P  I just know it's a very cool pose.

Ashleigh is going to show you how to do the pose that the orginal 2D Celeste did for Sinthetics in her yoga set.  If you haven't seen it, it looks like this:

(http://sinthetics-wordpress.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/DSC_0738.jpg) (http://sinthetics-wordpress.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/DSC_0738.jpg)

Cool, eh?  :)


Okay, so once again, Ashleigh will start in a relaxed home position.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5824.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5824.jpg)


We'll move the left leg in first, since the right leg is pretty much already in position for the final pose.  Again, we will perform an outward radial hip turn  to start.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5825.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5825.jpg)


As with the lotus, we will now pull the left hip out and bend the knee inwards, increasing the radial turn at the hip.  Remember to do this carefully and slowly -- that calf becomes a lever for the radial motion!

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5828.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5828.jpg)


Now Ashleigh will point her right toes away from her body, as if doing a pas du grace.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5829.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5829.jpg)

EDIT: I realize after some other discussions that I missed a step here, both in the photos and the text.  The next thing to do is to bend her torso at the waist as far forward as she can go.  You should be able to get her to bend at least 10° forward from a straight back position.

I'm going to help Ashleigh with this next part.  Again, take this slowly.  I firmly push her forward from the upper back, forcing her waist joint as far forward as it will go and adding to the radial turn at her hips.  I stop just short of a full face plant into the bed to avoid damaging her eyelashes.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5830.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5830.jpg)


Next she poses her right arm in the general position of the final pose.  Ashleigh found it helpful to hold her foot.   

EDIT: It also helps to twist her torso (using the radial waist joint) so that her right shoulder moves forward a bit.  This will extend her reach.


(Apologies to all for the wig malfunction that is persisted through the rest of this set.  Sorry.  :()

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5833.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5833.jpg)


She now poses her neck and head so that she is looking at her foot.  It is important to get her eyes to look at her hand or toes in order to sell this pose.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5838.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5838.jpg)


Finally, we move her left arm into the final position.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5844.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5844.jpg)


To make this look like more of a work-out, and to allow her face to be seen better, I put her hair in a pony tail with a black hair elastic.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5852.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5852.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5861.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5861.jpg)


Ashleigh:  Are we done yet?  I need a shower!

Post by: Sinthetics on June 13, 2012, 07:09:25 PM
Such outstanding photos KingTut, you have outdone yourself!

Here you can see the butt from a doggy position.  And now you can see how the illusion of a real pubis is broken when the legs are spread on an insert doll.  This doesn't happen on a doll with built-in entries.  And, while I haven't tried it, there may be a way to temporarily cement the honey pot in a way that will allow it to deform with the labia majora, preserving the illusion.
In the many images I've looked at, I haven't seen this happen before.  Is this unique to the body 2D?
This is normal for the removable inserts in any doll which is why we recommend built-in for photography dolls. It's just a question of physics.

SHOULDER
The shoulder and hip joints are quite similar in that they both have two separate rotating joints.  Because of this, I recommend that any posing involving the shoulder or hip joints always be started from a home position.  For the shoulders, the home position is with the arm held straight at the sides.  Ashleigh will demonstrate the side rotation first.  Note that the first photo shows the result of moving the arm 90° from the home position.
Just a warning to all viewing - be very careful how you do arm positions that require stretching the armpit. Without careful positioning, you will most likely tear that area. Sometimes even with careful positioning you'll cause a tear.

From my experience with small dolls, I would expect to find three motions on the waist of the 2D: arching (forward/backward rotation), twisting (rotating the shoulders out of line with the hips) and leaning side-to-side  I really haven't gotten a good feel for the twisting motion or leaning motions, so I don't know if they are there or not.  But the arching motion certainly is!
Those motions are there as you can see from our studio photos. The hips can tilt forward and back, and side to side in a hula motion. They are more difficult positions to achieve without experience and sometimes you need to use a knee in the waist while pulling shoulders towards you to get a good side bend. This is again a very advanced pose and not recommended if you don't fully understand how the lower back joint moves. Mark & Tasha are getting quite expert at exhibiting this range of motion.

Let's look first at the front/back rotation.  It seems that Ashleigh has no real backward movement at her hips, so she is incapable of doing a front-back split. 
It actually is possible for the dolls to do it but there is no good reason to push the silicone or joints to that extreme. The risk of damage is very high if people are not 100% certain with what they are doing. This is true really of any advanced poses. While the dolls do have extraordinary range of motion, they are not intended to be pushed to extremes. Since they are designed primarily for sexual use, the extreme positions should never be required for that purpose...

Beautifully executed by yourself and Ashleigh.
Why oh why do the manufactures not produce guides like this I am at a loss to understand. ::)
Because they take SO long to do when we have production and development at max! And many of these poses, while possible, we do not recommend.

DAY 6: SINTHETICS TRIBUTE

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6012.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6012.jpg)

Sinthia: So, Tut, you've got us in this Devil lingerie... what's the plan.

KingTut: Well, Sinthetics has really been good to us, so I thought we'd do something special for Matt and Bronwen.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6011.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6011.jpg)

Sinthia: Definitely!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5959.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_5959.jpg)

Sinthia sits in a nearby chair.

Sinthia: Hey!  I was just checking the goods.  I wasn't going to touch anything.  So what's the plan, Tutters?

KingTut: Hmm...  Sin, you stay where you are.  Ash, let's try something different... Try sitting on the table.

Sinthia: Ya know, we do eat there...

Ashleigh: Is it safe?

KingTut: Girls, please, cooperate.  This is for Matt and Bronwen.

Ashleigh: Okay...

KingTut: Oh wow... that's hot!  PERFECT!   Now Sin, move your chair a bit closer and I think we'll have our shot...

The Devil may wear Prada but not today, something much more fun..... ;D

As suspected .... Tutters indeed, Sinthia has your measure, just do not make her cross or you will be in for it !!! :o

Ashleigh you just want to cuddle because she is so sweet, in many more ways than one...  :)


Having posed dolls for a long time I know just how much effort, strength and time is needed ,you have done an exemplary job your Majesty, kudos.

I am about to try carrying Mirabel up stairs and at 66 my strength is not what it was so wish me luck !  :'(

It is a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun.  And it's been good for me.  I was just telling Bronwen that in the last week I've lost eight pounds!

And guess what?  It's that time again...  another Day of photos from the the Pyramid is coming your way.

DAY 7: SINTHIA GOES BOLLYWOOD

Well, today the girls discovered that their wardrobe is not limited to dresses, blouses, bathing suits and shorts.  Until a few minutes ago, I didn't realize the cool and down-to-business Sinthia could squeal.  Trust me, she can.  It's ear piercing.

The first thing that caught her fancy was a Bollywood Diva costume, which Ashleigh helped her into. 

I turned on some New Delhi Pop music and before I could snatch the White Balance card from her, Sinthia was making an attempt at Indian dance.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6025.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6025.jpg)

Sinthia: Dance with me, Tut!

KingTut: I don't dance, Sin.  I'll just watch you.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6028.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6028.jpg)

Sinthia: (pouting) That's not nearly as much fun.

KingTut: It is for me. 



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6029.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6029.jpg)

KingTut:  Um... Sindy... that's more of a stripper move, not Indian...

Sinthia: I just realized I don't really know how to do Indian dance.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6046.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6046.jpg)

KingTut: But you apparently know Pole Dance.  Is there something I should know?



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6060.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6060.jpg)

Sinthia: (brushing her hair from her eyes)  Very funny.  Is it getting a bit hot in here?

KingTut: I'm feeling a bit warm, but it has nothing to do with the room temperature.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6068.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6068.jpg)

Sinthia: I'm working up a sweat!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6075.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6075.jpg)

KingTut: Dancing can be a good workout.  Hey!  What are you doing?



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6078.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6078.jpg)

Sinthia: Just dancing, Tut-sugar...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6080.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6080.jpg)

Sinthia: ...doing a little move they taught me at that pole dancing school.

KingTut: Hey, I was joking... kinda...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6082.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6082.jpg)

Sinthia: Do you like my moves, Tut-sugar?

KingTut: Umm... yeah....   I think you're right, it is getting hot in here.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6085.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6085.jpg)

Sinthia: Almost there...

KingTut: I'm going to just, um... sit down... over there...  (walks oddly over to the chair and sits down)




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6087.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6087.jpg)

Sinthia: Ah.  That's much better.  So would you like to dance with me now, Tut?

Sinthia looks gorgeous with black hair ! It suits her red lips and blue eyes perfectly :) But she is also awesome in blonde because it suits her beautiful blond eyebrows and her lovely peach skintone. She's a lovely indian beauty.

I enjoy the pictures very much and all the themes associated. I like when pictures tell a story rather than common pictures as we are all used to see. Thanks you !

I'm eager to see the next pictures :p

Thanks, Guys.  I love seeing Sinthia in black hair as well.  It really suits her.  But, as Grenouille says, so does blonde.  And you'll be seeing a blonde Sinthia again, tomorrow.  :) 


Ashleigh is a perennial redhead, though.  I'm not sure we'll be seeing her anytime soon sporting a brunette or platinum 'do.  She does have a new wilg to try on for you, though... and that's coming up later this afternoon. 


Stay tuned...

DAY 8: RAINED OUT

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6171.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6171.jpg)

Ashleigh: (heavy sigh)



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6110.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6110.jpg)

Ashleigh: Tut, you promised!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6144.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6144.jpg)

KingTut: I'm not the weatherman, Ash.  You'll have to address your complaint to the Man upstairs.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6178.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6178.jpg)

Ashleigh: But I was really looking forward to going to the lake and showing off my new bathing suit!

(Ashleigh flops into the nearby chair.)


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6182.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6182.jpg)

KingTut: How 'bout we stay home and you show it off to me?

Ashleigh: It's not just that.  (sighs)  This is the third time in the last couple of weeks I've had to cancel my plans to go swimming or sunbathing.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6202.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6202.jpg)

Ashleigh: Why does this keep happening?

KingTut: Three times?  Really?



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6204.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6204.jpg)

Ashleigh:  Yes!  The first time, Bronwen was going to take us to the beach before we went home, but then her computer went all kaboomy...

KingTut wonders if "kaboomy" is actually a word, but keeps silent.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6206.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6206.jpg)

Ashleigh: ...the second time was when Sinthia cut her finger last week.  We were supposed to go the lake that day but ended up in the Clinic...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6219.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6219.jpg)

Ashleigh: ...and the third time is right now.  Stupid weather.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6230.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6230.jpg)

Ashleigh: (sighs) I don't even know why I bothered putting this thing on.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6234.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6234.jpg)

Ashleigh: I'm destined to be stuck here in the Pyramid forever...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6239.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6239.jpg)

Ashleigh: (a tease entering her voice) ...never to see the sunshine again...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6242.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6242.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6261.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6261.jpg)

Ashleigh: ...unless, of course, you can think of some other way to entertain me?

Of course, Ashleign and Sinthia will be a bit more work to do by myself than Rose and the small dolls.  But I'm looking forward to it!

And for those of you who don't know, the small dolls for the 50' Woman picture were shot on location near the bank of the Columbia River across from downtown Nashville.  And yes, that is Hitler holding the pistol in the foreground.  (You don't know how many times I get asked about that.)

Post by: KingTut on June 17, 2012, 10:16:26 PM
Thanks everyone for your kind comments.  I'm glad that Sinthia had a chance to make a strong impression.

This shoot was a difficult one for me to approach for a number of reasons.  One: I'd never done a low-light shoot before and was nervous about the high ISO and shutter times it would require;  And two: unlike with Ashleigh, I've had a really hard time capturing Sinthia's animus -- her life force.  All too often her photos have had that "serial killer on Ritalin" look.  It's been really frustrating since I ordered the Celeste head because of the versatility I'd seen in other people's photos.  So this shoot had me both nervous and determined.  The initial idea of "Ashleigh, Ashleigh, ASHLEIGH!" (apologies to The Brady Bunch) was born out of my frustration with how easily I can animate Ash, but not Sinthia.

I did not story board this shoot.  I just let Sinthia's dialog, which developed on the fly, drive the poses -- and, in turn, the expressions of her face and body helped drive the dialog.  It was very much a stream of consciousness-style session.

I'm really pleased with the end result, and I think we've finally found the real Sinthia.

KingTut:  (looks at table)  I know exactly the kind of fun Snuggles likes to have.  You realize he was cheating, right?  He was sitting on all four aces.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6491.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6491.jpg)

Sinthia: (aghast) How can you accuse that sweet little bear of cheating at cards?  I'm sure those aces just flew out of the deck when you scared him off with all your yelling.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6421.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6421.jpg)

Ashleigh: You were yelling, Tut.

KingTut: I'm STILL yelling! 




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6456.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6456.jpg)

Do you realize he had a straight flush -- and had he pulled one of those aces, he would have had a royal straight flush?  Sinthia, what did you bet your top on?  A pair of jacks?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6500.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6500.jpg)

Sinthia: (sighs) A pair of nines...

KingTut: Ashleigh?  You were pulling your top off for some reason.  You had something good?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6426.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6426.jpg)

Ashleigh: (shows a two and a five)  Umm... I thought he was bluffing?

KingTut: You were betting your shirt and you had NOTHING?!?!  I swear, if I get my hands on that bear...

A very funny set ; You are really creative KT...

But beware : Ash and Sin are causing more troubles at your home than a real girl and you'll be soon overwhelmed by the events...
To my mind these girls need a little spanking to make them change their behaviour...

Top them before they make you sleep on the couch... :D

DAY 11: ...


STOP!  Stop...  We can't start Day 11 without providing some history.

Okay, let's go back to April 2009.

When Jasmine and Rose came to live with me, they were there to help me with my insomnia and to act as goodwill ambassadors (i.e.: decorations) for the Pyramid.  They were not intended to fulfill their primary marketing function as described at the Teddy-Babes web site (http://teddy-babes.com/).  So I infibulated (http://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/infibulated) them.  This rather controversial decision of mine has been the topic of many discussions over the years. 

Jasmine took the procedure in stride and looked on it as "protecting her honor"; Rose was not nearly as enthused over it.  In fact, any reference to that event makes her very cranky.

Rose has been looking for a seam puller, a common sewing kit tool, for the past three years as a way to undo the results of my, in her words, "primitive, misogynistic ritual."  There was even a short-lived plot last year by certain Teddy-Babes owners at TDF to engage the services of Snuggles to deliver a seam puller to Rose.  This attempt failed thanks to the Pyramid's internal defenses.

So now you have been caught up with the relevant facts.  Maestro, you may restart the post...



DAY 11: AN UNWANTED GUEST

I knew something was up as soon as I walked down the hallway this afternoon and saw Sinthia "lounging" in the hallway.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6574.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6574.jpg)

Sinthia: Hey Tut!  You're home early.  What's shakin'?

KingTut: Apparently, you are.  Why are you guarding the hallway?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6579.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6579.jpg)

Sinthia: Guarding?  I'm not guarding anything.  (calls over her shoulder) Ashleigh, am I guarding anything?

(Ashleigh's voice comes from around the corner) Guarding?  No!  Why would you be guarding anything?

KingTut: So... you just figured the hallway was a good place to stretch in the middle of the afternoon?



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6571.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6571.jpg)

Sinthia: Stretch?  Um... no... I'm... uh... doing isometrics!  It's really good for muscle toning.

KingTut: Right.  I think I need to interrupt your exercise regimen and see what's going on back there.  (KingTut pushes past Sinthia)  You girls are acting way too weird.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6585.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6585.jpg)

Ashleigh: You can't go in there... it's not their fault!

KingTut: The last time I checked, the Pyramid had my name on the deed, so yes, I am going in there.  And it's not whose fault?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6588.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6588.jpg)

Ashleigh: Oh, you're going to find out anyway...  it was supposed to be a surprise.

KingTut: Step aside, Sweetie.  




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6631.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6631.jpg)

Ashleigh: I'm sorry guys... I tried to stop him.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6603.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6603.jpg)

Rose: It's okay, Ashleigh.  You did fine.  I believe we've concluded our business here.

Jasmine: Did we EVER!

KingTut: Business?  What business...?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6605.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6605.jpg)

KingTut: SNUGGLES!!!  WITH A SEAM PULLER!?!?!?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Snuggles-RUN-2.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Snuggles-RUN-2.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6612.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6612.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6614.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6614.jpg)

Jasmine: So that's why you wanted the seam puller!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6623.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6623.jpg)

Rose: It is, indeed.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6625.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6625.jpg)

Rose: So, Tuttikins... Are you interested in finding out what a seam puller can do for you?

The posing of your girls gets better and better with each installment, the Sins look so lifelike and casual, and not stiff at all. I love the short-shorts and t-shirt look on the Manikins, it conjures up memories of a high school friend who had a hot mom who used to sport that look when we'd go over to his house after school (but before his dad got home). It looked like she was roaming around the house in nothing but a t-shirt and panties.  :-\ I think that sometimes maybe she was.  ^-^

The seam-puller was a stroke of genius, Snuggles is quite the cad. Remind me to never let him come over to stay at my place.

I can't wait for the next chapter.

Thanks everyone! 

I remember a year or two ago emailing Bronwen about how I wasn't sure that integrating the Teddy-Babes with a Sinthetic would work.  I was worried it might cheapen the silicone gal.  I'm so glad that Jaz and Rose are not only able to take part in "Sixty Days..." but that they are being so well received.  Again, thanks to you all.

DAY 12: THE LAST STRAW

I was feeling a bit under the weather today, so I left work a little bit after lunch.  When I got home, I heard strange noises coming from one of the bedrooms.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6640.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6640.jpg)

KingTut: Ashleigh, what are you doing with all these small dolls out?  These aren't toys!  I need them for my novel.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6643.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6643.jpg)

Ashleigh: (entranced) I didn't know you had a Barbie.  She's beautiful.  I always wanted one.

KingTut: (softening) Honey, if you want her, she's yours.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6644.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6644.jpg)

Ashleigh: Mine?  Really?  Thank You!

KingTut: But, Ashleigh, why are all these little dolls out here on the bed?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6653.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6653.jpg)

Ashleigh: They're here to see him.

KingTut: Him?  Him who?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6646.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6646.jpg)

KingTut: Oh no...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6648.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6648.jpg)

KingTut: No, no no no no...  Not...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6650.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6650.jpg)

KingTut: SNUGGLES!!!

THREE HOURS LATER...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6760.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6760.jpg)

KingTut: (to himself) Sometimes the old tricks are the best tricks...



FIVE MINUTES LATER...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/LookingInBo2x.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/LookingInBo2x.jpg)

As KingTut walks out to the mail box, Sinthia runs to the front door, breathless.

DAY 13: PIZZA NIGHT


Dinner time came to the Pyramid and none of us felt like cooking.  So I ordered a couple of pizzas online, which were delivered almost an hour later.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6772.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6772.jpg)

Sinthia: Two large pizzas?  That's way too much food for the three of us!

KingTut: I like having cold pizza for breakfast, so I ordered extra.

Sinthia: Ick!  I hope these pizzas aren't as weird as your eating habits.  Let's see what's in here.

KingTut: (mumbles) I like cold pizza...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6774.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6774.jpg)

Sinthia: Um... what's on this pizza?  I don't recognize the meat.

KingTut: (looks at the pizza) That's a Philadephia Cheesesteak pizza.  The meat is thinly-sliced steak.

Sinthia: With onions?  They're not grilled.

KingTut: (sighs) They are cooked.  Use your imagination.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6781.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6781.jpg)

Sinthia:  This is not going into my svelte body.  And if you wanted a Philly steak sandwich, why did you order pizza?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6814.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6814.jpg)

Ashleigh: I'm sure it's fine, Sin.  In fact, it sounds pretty good, to me.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6783.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6783.jpg)

Sinthia: You're as bad as he is.  Neither of you has any sense of what makes a good pizza.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6817.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6817.jpg)

Ashleigh: Hey Tut -- do you have any of those little sliced Jalapeño peppers?  That would go great on there!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6786.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6786.jpg)

Sinthia: You are impossible!  Tut, this next pizza better have pepperoni on it!

KingTut: I'm pretty sure it does, Sin.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6790.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6790.jpg)

Sinthia: Aha!  I do see pepperoni!  But...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6793.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6793.jpg)

Sinthia: ...what is this?

KingTut: It's pineapple, Sindy.  It's good!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6796.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6796.jpg)

Sinthia: You had them put FRUIT on a pepperoni pizza?  This isn't a pizza topping -- this is what you put on cottage cheese!  You've ruined a perfectly good pepperoni pizza!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6823.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6823.jpg)

Ashleigh: Would you quit your nitpicking and serve the pizza?  I'm starving over here.  And that pepperoni and pineapple sounds dee-lish!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6800.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6800.jpg)

Sinthia: You seriously want to eat this assault on over 100 years of pizza-making tradition?  Okay... it's your taste buds' funeral.



MOMENTS LATER...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6806.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6806.jpg)

Sinthia: Okay, this cheesesteak pizza is pretty good.  I wouldn't mind grabbing another slice.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6829.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6829.jpg)

Ashleigh: Wait until you try the pineapple.  It's really good!  Hey, what are you doing?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6808.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6808.jpg)

Judging by Sinthia's nipples, King Tut keeps his tomb nice and chilly.  :laugh:

Another great set of pics, my man.

And if I may, I highly recommend the Dominos' bacon, grilled chicken, and ranch pizza... but I doubt Sin's gonna be very impressed.

:)  Glad you like her in red as well.  I don't want to give anything away, but we'll be featuring Sinthia in a cosplay shoot soon where she will be imitating one of my very favorite redheads of all time.  Want a hint?  Her name starts with a "J".

Post by: KingTut on June 21, 2012, 10:11:17 AM
I'm going to have to adjust our shooting schedule a bit.  I didn't launder the black and gold outfit for the Day 15 shoot before using it and Sinthia came out of that shoot with black dye all over her.  :(  There's dye pretty much everywhere on her torso, most of her arms, her thighs and even on her fingers.  The dress was on her for several hours after the shoot, so she's absorbed a lot of dye.

I gave her a tepid bath last night (first making sure there were no openings in the silicone anywhere) and now we're just letting the silicone do its slow dye rejection magic.

Anyway, the end result is that I'll have to be more selective on costuming over the next several days so as not to expose the stains.  If I've told any of you a certain motif is coming up, there's a good chance that will be delayed.  Long sleeves, gloves, covered bosoms and long stockings are going to be on the upcoming menu.

The worst part of all this is I should have known better -- I always wash black, red or dark green garments before putting them on any of my dolls.  The gold lamé thread running through the material gave me a false sense of security.

If anyone knows of a safe way to speed up the dye rejection process, please let me know.  I've had luck using benzoil peroxide-based acne products to remove dye from PVC dolls, but I'm not wanting to experiment with that on Ash/Sin.  Besides, if it worked, it would take a full case of acne cream -- try explaining that to your druggist.

Time is your only treatment. We understand that it's stressful to see and that everyone would love to hurry up the process, but you just have to let it be. Rubbing it or using solvents will only damage the finishes. Sorry about that.

DAY 14: BABYDOLL ARRIVES

Late last year, I pre-ordered an action figure of the character Babydoll from the movie Sucker Punch.  The figure was to include a movie-accurate sculpt of Emily Browning's face and detailed costuming and weapons from the film.

Well, Babydoll arrived here at the Pyramid late last week, and she's everything that was promised.  Hot Toys did a beautiful job on the figure, clothing and weapons.  Even the stainless steel blade of her katana has the highly detailed and fanciful markings from the movie prop.

Sinthia, who we are learning is really into costume play, issued another of her incongruous and ear-splitting squeals after seeing Babydoll and ran to the closet.  She came out a few minutes later wearing a Babydoll costume and holding replica plastic sword and an airsoft pistol.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6953.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6953.jpg)

Sinthia: How about we do a pose-down, K.T.?

Ashleigh: This should be fun...


The concept was simple, I would pose little Babydoll in classic moments from the movie and Sinthia would try to match the poses.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6961.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6961.jpg)

So here was the first pose by Babydoll.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6957.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6957.jpg)

Sinthia: Hey, I think I got this one, though I'm not quite strong enough to point my pistol the same way.

Ashleigh: Looks good Sin!  Though you need to be more fierce.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6962.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6962.jpg)

Sinthia: How does she keep her arm that high?  She must work out.

KingTut: Let's try a different one.

I re-posed Babydoll into a dramatic cutting stance with her Katana.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6975.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6975.jpg)

Sinthia: I think I can do that one...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6966.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6966.jpg)

Sinthia: Hmm... I can't hold the same angle as her.  She's strong.

Ashliegh: You look good, though Sin.  Hold that so Tut can get the picture.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6977.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6977.jpg)

Sinthia: She's good!

KingTut: Okay, time for a real challenge.

Sinthia: (nervously) Okay...

I pose Babydoll again.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6981.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6981.jpg)

Ashleigh: Wow!  She looks like she's about to take on an entire army!

Sinthia: I think I'm going to need that stool, Tut.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6993.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6993.jpg)

Sinthia: Are you sure knees and hips are meant to bend like that?

Ashleigh: That's actually not too bad, Sin.  Can you get your knee back a bit farther?

Sinthia: This is as far as it goes.  I think Babydoll wins this round.

KingTut: I think you both did fine.  She has the advantage of having open joints and a lot less mass.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6995.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_6995.jpg)

Sinthia: This is a very cool little doll.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7004.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7004.jpg)

DAY 15: PHARAOH'S FAVORITE

Today Sinthia discovered a costume called "Pharaoh's Favorite" -- a rather fetching Egyptian slave girl outfit.  I thought we should have a bit of fun with it and engage in some role play.  I chose to re-enact a favorite memory of mine from the old days.


KingTut: Sinthia!  Come to me at once!  Your Pharaoh requires your presence!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7013.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7013.jpg)

Sinthia: I am here Pharaoh.  What do you require?

KingTut: At the moment, only to gaze upon you, my fair and beautiful maiden.

Sinthia: Fair I am, Sire, but beautiful I cannot be.  I am not like the women of your country.  I possess not the charms of their dark skin nor their graces.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7014.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7014.jpg)

KingTut: In grace, a rough-hewn stone you may be, but in beauty, feminine strength and humility, none of my slaves or concubines can compare.  You are a prize like none other, taken from the Saxon shores.  To me, your value is beyond measure.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7016.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7016.jpg)

Sinthia: You flatter me Sire.  Surely I am worthy of only your disdain.

KingTut: Flattery is the words of a fool wasted on one who wishes more than life to hear them.  Nay it is not flattery, but the truth I bestow upon you, my most honored of servants.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7018.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7018.jpg)

KingTut: And now, my Dearest One, my Pale Princess from Afar, I have a special request of you.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7020.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7020.jpg)

Sinthia: Yes, Pharaoh.  Anything!

KingTut whispers in Sinthia's ear.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7024.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7024.jpg)

Sinthia: (shocked) My king!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7025.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7025.jpg)

Sinthia: You cannot mean this!

KingTut: I certainly do mean it!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7027.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7027.jpg)

Sinthia: You would ask such a thing?  Of me?  Your request is so... unusual.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7029.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7029.jpg)

KingTut: You defy your Lord and Master?  Your Pharaoh?

Sinthia: No!  No, my Leige!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7034.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7034.jpg)

Sinthia: (with resignation) I shall do as you command, Sire.



SINTHIA LEAVES AND RETURNS A FEW MINUTES LATER.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7038.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7038.jpg)

Sinthia: Your Excellency, I have done as you have requested.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7043.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7043.jpg)

Sinthia: I am wearing the Micky Mouse cap and have brought you a half-eaten slice of cold pizza.  Shall I now sing "Daisy, Daisy"?

KingTut: Yes, my Precious One.  You have done well, please sing for me now.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7045.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7045.jpg)

Sinthia: (breaking character) Tut's weird!

Ashleigh: (shouting from another room) You got it in one, girlfriend!

Voice from comm badge: Ensign Porter here.  Captain, you are needed on the bridge of the USS Aramis immedately.  Commander d'Amore will brief you en route.

Ashleigh: Porter?

Porter: Yes, Ma'am?

Ashleigh: Thanks for the rescue, your timing was impeccable.  One more freaking pose and I would have  atomized that creep.

Porter: All in a day's work, Ma'am.  All in a day's work.

As it turns out, Ceej, neither did I!  The original ending that we shot was rather serious but went nowhere.  So during the post I did a re-write.  Ending with a joke, even a lame one, is better than a plot that goes nowhere.

Thanks, bud.  :)  I believe it was the "No Panty Line Left Behind Act of 2357" that banned the use of feminine undergarments by on-duty Star Fleet personnel.  I would note that the Act clearly states that feminine undergarments may not be worn by on-duty personnel of any sex with a veiled reference in a codicil to an ensign Sulu.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7157-2.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7157-2.jpg)

Or perhaps your tastes run to something a bit more exotic?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7179-2.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7179-2.jpg)

This particular fruit has its own unique charm, don't you think?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7191.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7191.jpg)

Of course, if it is charm that you seek...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7212.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7212.jpg)

...I can offer fruit of a different kind.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7212-2.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7212-2.jpg)

Come.  Partake in all that I have to offer you, my dear weary one.

Celeste is a perfect representation of the divine, her patrician features lend themselves wonderfully to the goddess of love. Also, the "halo" of her areolas has never been so apt.  :P

Fantastic set of pics.

Thanks, guys.  I was really worried about the lighting in that set after I finished it.  (I had to hold a 1m reflector high above my head to redirect the sunlight.)  But as it turns out, it's one of my favorites so far.

What a lovely and funny story of the godess sinthia ! I guess she has the best fruits of grece in a her private garden :p

The photo where she's holding the cherry is probably the best of the group.  I love how it turned out.  And I believe you are right, grenouille, I think I can see that cherry withering in envy.

DAY 18: TERMINATE WITH PREJUDICE


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7233-Edit.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7233-Edit.jpg)

1853 Hours.  I've been on patrol most of the day.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7234.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7234.jpg)

He's out there.  I can feel it.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7246.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7246.jpg)

Vigilance is the key.  I can't let him inside our perimeter.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7249.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7249.jpg)

What was that?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7253.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7253.jpg)

Could he have gotten past me?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7257.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7257.jpg)

I think the sound came from under here.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7265.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7265.jpg)

Hmmm...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7269.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7269.jpg)

...not a trace.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7271.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7271.jpg)

We can't be too careful, though.  Everything is at stake.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7273.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7273.jpg)

Everything up here appears to be in order.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7279.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7279.jpg)

Hmmm... nothing.  But that doesn't soften my resolve.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7294-2.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7294-2.jpg)

Consider this place secured.  Nothing is going to get past me.  You fooled us once, but not again.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7294.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7294.jpg)

And if you ever darken our door again, I'll be waiting for you... Snuggles!

Great review on Ashleigh, and the last paragraph about Sinth B2D skeleton/joints.  Awesum photoshoot too.  I've always loved redheads though.

DAY 19: THE MARK OF SINNAMON BUNZ

EDIT: This post has been extended to a special Director's Cut version.  Enjoy!




Required mood music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9RS4biqyAc&feature=related



Our tale opens at a leech farm, deep in the heart of the Mexican state of Chihuahua.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7297.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7297.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: Why have you stopped working?  I have orders to fill!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7303.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7303.jpg)

Maria: Señor Schumann...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7302.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7302.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: DOCTÓR Schumann!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7304.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7304.jpg)

Maria: Doctór Schumann, we are weary.  The leeches are upon us below and the mosquitoes above.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7305.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7305.jpg)

Conchita: Please, Doctór!  These conditions are unbearable.  You give us only two pieces of clothing to share among the five of us.  We work 12 hours each day in this miserable swamp.  I do not think I can take another day.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7304.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7304.jpg)

Magdalena: It is true.  None of us can take it even one more hour!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7312.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7312.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: ENOUGH!  Do I not feed you?  Do I not give you a place to sleep?  Do I not give you meaningful work in the medical profession?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7319.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7319.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: LEECHES are at the heart of all modern medical practice.  They are a necessity of modern day life!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7320.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7320.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: What we do here improves so many lives!  And you would complain about doing such important work?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7322.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7322.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: Besides, you know what you must do if you wish to find more comfortable... employment...  but it is a decision you must all make together!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7327.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7327.jpg)

Ana: But Doctór!  Even if we all were agreed to marry you, bigamy is illegal in Chihuahua!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7332.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7332.jpg)

Magdalena: And besides, you are a miserable, white-slaver PEEG!  We will never submit to your disgusting desires!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7337.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7337.jpg)

Ana: Lena is right.  We will never submit!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7323.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7323.jpg)

Doctór Schumann cracks his whip and fires his gun over the women's heads.

Doctór Schumann: I have heard enough!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7347.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7347.jpg)  (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7355.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7355.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: You will either submit to my will, or rot in this stinking swamp for the rest of your miserable little lives!  I will not be talked to in such a way as this!  You mock me at your peril!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7359.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7359.jpg)

Doctór Schumann: Now, all of you, get back to wo--- Oooofff!

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7374.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7374.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz: Protector of the downtrodden, uplifter of the peoples and the destroyer of evildoers!

Picks up Doctór Schumann.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7379.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7379.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz: And you!  You are a most despicable evil doer!

Doctór Schumann: Put me down!  Put me down this instant!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7385.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7385.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz: Indeed, I will put you down.  I will put you down where you can harm no one!  I will separate you and your kind from all the good, decent people of Chihuahua.  Yes, down you will go!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7393.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7393.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7401.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7401.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz: Where there is Injustice -- I will be there!  Where there is Suffering -- I will bring succor!  Where there are children crying in the night -- I will comfort them!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7402.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7402.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz: When evil shows it's head, I will strike it down!  When the poor are taken advantage of, I will dismiss their landlords!  When the people cry out against a government that has left them behind, I will lead them against it!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7415.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7415.jpg)

Ana: Is it just me, or is this speech just a touch too melodramatic and a whole lot too long?

Magdalena: It's not just you...

Magdalena: Okay, that didn't even make any sense.  Hey, Sinnamon Bunz!  Are you going to fish us out of this swamp any time soon?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7406.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7406.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz:  Ah, yes... well, there is the matter of my fee...  Let's see... five women rescued from slavery at 100,000 pesos per person.  Yes, 500,000 pesos!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7416.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7416.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7412.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7412.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz: Hey, you think these outfits grow on trees?  And this custom sword set me back 3,000 pesos.  Add in the torn blouses, legal representation, marketing, my agent, travel, catering... I'm telling you: becoming a nationally recognized brand is expensive!  That money has to come from somewhere.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7429.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7429.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7413.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7413.jpg)

Sinnamon Bunz: You're gonna need to come up with it somehow, sister.  Hmmm... well, as it seems I have just come into ownership of a leech farm and you are all experienced leech farmers... how about you work it off?  I would think seven years labor would be just about right!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7424.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7424.jpg)

DAY 20: THE GRAND TOUR

Today we had a virtual visitor over and Ashleigh, ever the good hostess, decided to give the household tour.  Beforehand she found a dragon-embroidered dress in the closet.  Ash is part Japanese (as a child she was stationed on a U.S. Air base in Japan) and thought that even though it was really a Chinese dress that it put her in a nostalgic mood.  So a bit of her Japanese graces show through in this tour of the Pyramid.


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7437.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7437.jpg)

Konichiwa!  Welcome to The Pyramid!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7439.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7439.jpg)

Please remove your shoes.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7447.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7447.jpg)

Please follow me.  I would like to take you on a tour of our humble home.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7450.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7450.jpg)

This is the foyer.  The table to your right is a Bombay chest.  It's uniquely curved drawers have been the source of many of KingTut's bruised fingers.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7452.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7452.jpg)

The Pyramid is the home of one human, five cats, a schizophrenic Polymerisian, two Teddy Babes and a host of 1/6 scale action figures numbering around 150.  It's a very busy place.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7453.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7453.jpg)

Over here, we have the Library.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7456.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7456.jpg)

We call it the library, but it's really our reading room.  The bulk of the Pyramid's books are actually housed in the master bedroom closet and in the small doll workshop.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7460.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7460.jpg)

The shelves house a small portion of our books and several small dolls and statuary.  The small dolls are redressed and changed out fairly regularly.  There's always something new and interesting on the shelves!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7464.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7464.jpg)

This is the grand hallway.  It connects to every room in the house.  Behind me is the media room.  We'll come back here in a moment.  But first...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7471.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7471.jpg)

...the kitchen and Great Room.  This is really one very large room with changing roof lines.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7472.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7472.jpg)

In the area behind me, the roof peaks at 25 feet -- about 7.6 meters!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7487.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7487.jpg)

Note the distinctive fan over the dining table.  The blades are like giant leaves.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7488.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7488.jpg)

The overall decor of the house is a cross between an English gentleman's club and the home of a world-traveling archaeologist, ala Indiana Jones.  At least, that was the intent.

Now, if you will follow me this way...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7512.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7512.jpg)

This is the media room or theater.  The gong to my left is real -- and really loud!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7526.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7526.jpg)

The theater is equipped with a DTS 6.1 sound system and a 60" television.  It looks as if Tut was in the middle of editing some photos.  All of the photographs posted to ODC are previewed and developed here. 

Now please follow me down the hallway.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7530.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7530.jpg)

On your right is the door to the Small Doll Workshop.  I'm afraid it is currently in quarantine after the Snuggles incident.

To my right are the Pyramid's bedrooms.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7532.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7532.jpg)

And here, I'm afraid we must conclude our tour.  Out of respect, I will not be taking you into the personal quarters.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7537.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7537.jpg)

Domo arigato!  Thank you for your kind attention.  Good night.

KingTut,

     Ashleigh is definately "the hostess with the most-ess"! Maybe she should go into the real estate business. She certainly knows how to spice up a room!  :-*   Nice digs, archaeologically speaking!  ;D

;D 8) ;D

Thanks guys!  I've been very fortunate to have sold California real estate at the top of the market several years ago.  I was able to purchase and furnish my home as you see it now.  And I think Ash is just gorgeous in this set -- I'm glad I'm not the only one.

On a different note, it appears that the editor for Day 19 left some pix and dialog on the cutting room floor.  He's been fired.  I have re-edited Day 19 into a Director's Cut version.  If you want a bit more insight into Sinnamon Bunz motivations, please review this new, expanded version of Day 19: The Mark of Sinnamon Bunz (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4049.msg46532#msg46532).

She does, indeed, have a bit of rouge on.  It seemed to fit the set and the altered hairstyle.  Plus, it upped the incredibait factor.  :p

DAY 21: MAID TO SERVE


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7542.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7542.jpg)

Rose: So what's up with the French Maid get-up?  Is Tut planning a saucy shoot tonight?

Ashleigh: No... I think one should be properly costumed for the task at hand, and I plan on doing a bit of tidying up tonight.

Jasmine: "...properly costumed for the task at hand..."  That sounds like a quote from one of the Madame LaRue's Academy textbooks.  What needs tidying, Ashleigh?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7543.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7543.jpg)

Ashleigh: What needs tidying?  Seriously, Jasmine, how can you ask that question?  There's dust everywhere and the bed isn't made.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7551.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7551.jpg)

Jasmine: The housekeeper was just here a few days ago.  There really can't be all that much dust.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7550.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7550.jpg)

Rose: And it's 7:00 at night -- the bed's just going to be used in a few hours.  I can't see any reason for making it up at this point.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7557.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7557.jpg)

Ashleigh: You two are hopeless.  Cleanliness is next to Godliness.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7552.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7552.jpg)

Jasmine: I don't think that's in the Bible anywhere, Ash...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7561.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7561.jpg)

Ashleigh: Well... it should be!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7570.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7570.jpg)

Ashleigh: Really, you girls should take an interest in keeping this place up.  Tut does a lot for us.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7553.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7553.jpg)

Rose: (mutters to herself) We do a lot for him, too...

Ashleigh makes the bed and starts smoothing out the bedspread.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7578.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7578.jpg)

Ashleigh: Well I just think we should show him some appreciation.  So I'm doing my part.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7574.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7574.jpg)

Rose: If he were to walk in the room and see the view I'm seeing, he'd definitely be sensing the appreciation...

Ashleigh finishes straightening the bedspread and is putting the pillows on the bed as Tut walks in.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7583.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7583.jpg)

KingTut: So what's going on here?  You're in a maid's uniform and the bed is all made up?

Ashleigh: I was just doing a bit of neatening up.  I think we should all do our part around here.

KingTut: I think that's an excellent idea, Ash!  Hmmm....




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7613.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7613.jpg)

Jasmine: Rose... do you smell something odd?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7620.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7620.jpg)

Rose: Yep, I do.  And I know that smell.  It's Tut's pun vat fermenting.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7637.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7637.jpg)

Jasmine: That's for real?  I always thought that was one of your funny metaphors.  It really stinks.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7628.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7628.jpg)

Rose: It's for real, all right.  And you're right: it does stink.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7590.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7590.jpg)

Rose: I'm afraid we are in for one of his worst puns ever.  And here it comes...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7589.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7589.jpg)

KingTut: I should do my part as well.  So, since you have made the bed...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7610.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7610.jpg)

lovely story and an even lovelier maid !! Love a girl in uniform (like that) !!

remark/question regarding the pictures in which Ashleigh is standing: I do realize a stand is involved, but still her legs are kinda bend. It would be more natural to have the legs more straight imo. Is that troublesome to achieve in some way?

The bend is intentional -- the TBs are sitting and are also short of stature.  The knee bend is to give the impression that Ashleigh, who attempts to always be polite, is trying to account for the difference in eye-level without going into a kneeling position as one would do when talking to a child. 

The knee bend in the dusting photo was an "I forgot".  :P

As for the wardrobe, I had two-and-half years to prepare for their arrival.  :)  That time turned into a lot of clothes -- and small dolls for some odd reason.

DAY 23: BUSTED


The following, unfortunately, is a true story.  Every single horrible detail...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7789.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7789.jpg)

Ashleigh: SERIOUSLY?!?!  Please tell me this is one of your stupid jokes.

KingTut: I'm so sorry Ash.  It's not a joke...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7791.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7791.jpg)

Ashleigh: Get that camera out of my face!  It's the last thing I want to see right now.  We drove around for, what?  FOUR HOURS?  Four hours trying to find a place where we could be by the water.

KingTut: But we found a great place, finally.  And that playground is a great spot.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7793.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7793.jpg)

Ashleigh: Yeah, a great spot.  Especially during the last shot with that old man and his grandsons leering at me.

KingTut: They weren't leering... much.  They were more curious.  The boys were giggling a bit as we left.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7794.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7794.jpg)

Ashleigh: They were giggling all right.  They were too freaked out to actually talk.

KingTut: Now Ash...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7796.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7796.jpg)

Ashleigh: Don't you "Now Ash" me!  It was over 106°F out there.  You kept telling me "Oh!  That's hot!"  Yeah, it was freakin' hot!  And now you tell me THIS?!?!

KingTut: It was an honest mistake.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7799.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7799.jpg)

Ashleigh: (trying to maintain her composure by staring into space and talking through gritted teeth) It was a mistake that cost us the entire damn day!

KingTut: (sulking) I really thought I had everything ready.  The battery was charged.  All the outfits had been rinsed.  I had the tripod, reflector, spare wigs...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7809.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7809.jpg)

Ashleigh: Everything except the MEMORY CARD FOR THE CAMERA!  Seriously, how could you leave that at home, spend 2 hours taking photos -- actually NOT taking photos, AND NOT NOTICE?  Doesn't the camera TELL you when there's no card in it?

KingTut: I'm really sorry, Ash...  I screwed up.  I don't know what else to say.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7810.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7810.jpg)

Ashleigh: (softening a bit) Look, I'm hot, I'm tired, I'm sweaty and I'm disappointed.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7812.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7812.jpg)

Ashleigh: I'm going to take off these sweaty clothes, take a shower and put on something comfortable.  Then we'll talk about how you can make this up to me.



Yep - every single word is true.

One question: Ash's finger tips look weired in one picture. What happend? Has she touched something hot? They look as if she has burned them....

Keep up the great work  8)

Post by: life-is-plastic on July 01, 2012, 10:39:48 AM
sorry to hear about the misfortune Tut!! Especially when it happens while away on a location-shoot  :(

NEVER EVER set your camera to allow it to take pictures WITHOUT a card! NEVER !! And if you want to play around with it: just insert a card! Easy for me to say now after the facts, but it's something I never did (setting my camera to allow picture-taking without a card inserted); I work as a professional photographer and something like this happening to me would be a nightmare as many things I photograph are one-offs (journalism); only now and again it happens to me that I walk off to a location for an assignment, and at the spot upon power-up get the message "No Card" on the screen; awkward (having to walk back to the car to get an empty card) but still so much more preferable to shooting away blissfully unaware of an empty card-slot. Also: always bring some spare cards! Had 2 CF cards die on me for no apparent reason (in camera/while photographing) ... both were from reputable companies; one Sandisk and one Lexar.

And agreed with Meschler: what happened with her fingertips? Finger-poke repairs ??
Title: Re: The "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia" Project
Post by: KingTut on July 01, 2012, 01:53:14 PM
I'm afraid that I a true amateur at photography.  I've picked up what I can on my own and am considering taking a class in September.  But the simple truth is that I'm learning all this as I go along.  My old PowerShot cameras never allowed me to release the shutter without a card in them.  But my Rebel T2i does.  :(  I see now that there is a setting to disallow that, but the default setting :o is to release the shutter even if no card is inserted.  There is a message displayed, but I didn't see it because I do most of my framing through the viewfinder, not the display.

This really is kind of a downer for other reasons, too.  Taking Ashleigh out to a real public place -- rather than just my front or back yard -- took a lot out of me.  And I'm now more gun-shy than I was before yesterday's botched shoot.

As to the fingers, there are four things going on there, though only three are visible in the photo that has everyone concerned.



On that last item, I'm afraid I haven't had the time to talk with Sinthetics to see what else I might be doing wrong, or if there is a way to conceal the color change or perhaps a better method of repairing the pokes.  Between illness, work and the shooting/editing/posting schedule there just hasn't been time.  :(  I'll catch up with them soon, but in the meantime I guess I'll avoid showing the inside of her palm.

I also lost a fingernail sometime yesterday, so I need to get with Bronwen to see what she recommends as a replacement.

thanks for that lengthy reply Tut, and once again: what a pity what happened on your location-shoot !!  :(  Can imagine you had to gather courage to take things outside, and than this happens!!  :o >:(  :(

did indeed notice before that on 'straight-on' pictures of Sin hands the 'filling' between fingers and nails kinda look thick and weird. And a good warning regarding the bending of the fingers; but a bit frustrating I guess, if you have to be careful and cannot pose the way you feel you should be able to ... as the devil's in the details

DAY 24: FORGIVENESS


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7819.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7819.jpg)

Was I too hard on Tut?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7821.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7821.jpg)

I have every right to be mad, right?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7825.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7825.jpg)

I mean, all of that mess could have been avoided.  He could have scouted locations weeks ago rather than driving around all afternoon.  That got infuriating.

But the corker was the missing SD card.  He should have seen the "NO CARD IN CAMERA" message when he took the car photos.

We could have stayed in the car, gone home and got a shower.  And not have gotten dirty and leered at. 




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7834.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7834.jpg)

But, it was an honest mistake, right?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7838.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7838.jpg)

(sighs)  Have I blown it by blowing up at him?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7842.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7842.jpg)

(sits bolt upright with shock)

He won't kick me out, will he?!?



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7847.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7847.jpg)

(flops back, clutching at a pillow)

What will I do?  I have no place to go.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7853.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7853.jpg)

And I want to be here!  He does stupid stuff and makes bad jokes.  And he has no idea how to handle me or Sinthia.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7854.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7854.jpg)

But... I love him...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7856.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7856.jpg)

It makes no sense, but it's true.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7857.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7857.jpg)

I've got to make this right!

KingTut peeks his head around the door.

KingTut: Is it safe to come in?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7864.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7864.jpg)

Ashleigh: It's safe.  I'm sorry I blew up at you.  You just drive me so crazy sometimes!

KingTut: I know.  I'm sorry about today.  Tomorrow will be better, I promise.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7869.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7869.jpg)

Ashleigh: How about you come over here and we make tonight better?

Keep on doing these lovely shoots, we never get tired of them.

Amazing stuff KingTut, so much brilliant stuff in such a short time. Sorry to hear about your memory card dramas, it must have been frustrating. Did Ash finally get some sun on that day? I've done similar things and it's a pain. Just the other day I spent forever making over Tempe and when I finally took the pics I had the ISO settings wrong and the results were a little 'how ya going'.

Incredible work with an amazing doll!

I have a written checklist for location photo shoots:

Coincidentally, yesterday I was on a location photo shoot with a South Korean television crew and my rechargeble batteries went flat. I changed them for my spare set of ordinary batteries. That set went dead as soon as I turned the camera on. That is why I carry a third set. Lucky I did!

DAY 25: THINKING OF KATNISS


Today we find a solitary Sinthia reading The Hunger Games Trilogy and contemplating its heroine, Katniss. 

Does Sinthia see herself as a Katniss archetype?  Does she relate to her romantic frustrations?  Or does she lack adventure in her life and lust for the excitement and danger of the Games?

Unfortunately, Sinthia is not telling.  These things, Dear Reader, you will need to decide on your own.

note of criticism regarding this one:

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7917.jpg)

that one finger is positioned a bit awkward and rather unnatural

That was unfortunate.  This was a VERY low-light shoot... lower than anything I've done before.  The white balance adjustment, while yielding very true color, takes away much of the warmth of the low-light situation.  (I had considered adjusting this by adjusting the temperature setting a bit higher, but I kind of liked the results that don't appear to be in low-light.)  Anyway, I was trying to get Sinthia to twirl her hair around her finger and had what I wanted, but I went and did the body shots for that pose before doing her face.  While I was getting the body shots, her hair tried to un-twirl, caught on her fingernail and pulled the silicone of her finger around the wire.  It was VERY dark and when I finally took the face shot, I didn't see what had happened.  I did note that her hair was caught in the fingernail when I set the next pose.  And I missed it in the edit as well. :( 

It's really too bad, because this was meant to introduce a new behavior unique to Sinthia.  Ashleigh tends to gently scratch at her chest when deep in an emotional thought or conflict.  I wanted Sinthia to have the hair twirl as her indicator of deep emotional thought.  I'll continue with the meme, but will need to be aware in the future that her hair may undo the pose.

DAY 26: SINBATHING

Today we have a bit of a return to my guerrilla roots of shooting Teddy Babes on the front lawn -- working up the courage to take the girls out in public.  So today we have some shots of Sinthia relaxing in the 104°F heat on my front lawn.  Just a simple fashion shoot where I try to get as many poses and pictures as I can before the neighbors notice the half-naked woman on the grass...

never realized that the silicone of the fingers could so easily 'rotate' around the wire  :o  ... can imagine you miss somethings while doing a shoot ... in semi-darkness  ;D especially with so many things to keep an eye on

Grenouille: Your beauty blossoms everyday what's your secret?

Sinthia: Thank you ! My whole body is going to blush now... :-[

Grenouille:  :o I see that your other lips are blossoming  :o

Sinthia:  :-[  ohhhhhhhhhhhhh sorry tut told me not to stay too long under the sun ohhhhhhhhhh :-[

Grenouille: Don't worry sinthia, I bet tut would be glad to have this kind of flower in his garden, it needs just some water and warm sunlight to blossom even more. And don't forget that proverb: One flower a day, don't keep kingtut away

Sinthia: thanks for the tip grenouille  :laugh:

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7985.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7985.jpg)

Ashleigh: Okay, Tut, so what are we going to do for this Independence Day shoot?

KingTut: I actually thought I would let you exercise your independence and decide what we should do.

Ashleigh: It sounds like you came into this unprepared...

KingTut: No, you are wearing a USA flag-inspired swimsuit -- and I have some props ready, but I figure you should have a chance to exercise a bit of creativity today.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7987.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7987.jpg)

Ashleign: Hmmm.... let me think...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7999.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_7999.jpg)

Ashleigh: I could sing "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and do an interpretive dance!

KingTut: I'm afraid that doesn't translate well to photos.  How about something a bit more photogenic.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8007.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8007.jpg)

Ashleigh: Oh!  I got one.  Go get one of those Bomb Pops from the freezer.  They are red, white and blue and I could lick one while you take a picture.  It will be sexy!  And besides, it's 102°F out here.

KingTut: Sounds like a good idea!


ONE MINUTE LATER...

Ashleigh: *SLURP!*

KingTut: Honestly, Ash, I can't decide if that's sexy or just plain silly.  I think we'll have to go with my backup plan.

Are you asking about the purple bottle that shows up in most of the shots?  That's just a sports water bottle (with pink lemonade in it, I believe.)  In 102°F/38.9°C heat, it's important to keep hydrated!  The complex-looking top creates a strong seal, using a silicone stopper, so that you can avoid spills or use it as a shaker for mixing flavors into your water.

Sinthia: (heavy sigh)  Tut's back to spending all his time with Ashleigh again.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8188.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8188.jpg)

Sinthia: And Snuggles is off making time with all the "ladies" at the incredimansion.  Besides, Ash and Tut won't let Snuggles come back...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8190.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8190.jpg)

Sinthia: Ick!  All I do lately is whine and pine.  It's all Snuggles' fault.  Tut is actually good about giving us equal attention.  It's Snuggles!  It's like I'm under his spell!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8192.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8192.jpg)

Sinthia: I need to break his control over me.  I wish it were as simple as saying something silly, like, "Mirror, Mirror, clear as a bell, how do I break that Snuggles' spell?"




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8203.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8203.jpg)

The mirror seems to shake in response...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror1.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror1.jpg)

...and an apparition appears!

Ethereal Voice:
Pretty Sinthia, with eyes so blue,
the spell can be broken with foul-smelling brew;
But a witch ye lack to wave her wand,
So a different path lays before this blonde.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8195.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8195.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror2.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror2.jpg)

Ethereal Voice:
Mad ye may be, but that's not my decision,
A shade stands before you, no mere apparation;

In life was I a pirate, running slaves, rum and guns;
My name chilled like death: Captain Sinnamon Bunz!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8208.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8208.jpg)

Sinthia: A shade?  Like a ghost?  And you are appearing in my mirror like some fairy tale?  This is just too much.  So... what happens now?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror3.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror3.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz:
You think I grant wishes of love, fame and riches?
I'm a pirate! Not a djinn! You should swim with the fishes!

What I have to offer is worth much more than gold --
'Tis knowledge I'll grant as you enter our fold.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8211.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8211.jpg)

Sinthia: Enter your fold?  I don't have to die, do I?  And what's up with all the rhyming?  It was cute at first, but it's becoming a bit annoying.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror4.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror4.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz:
To rhyme is to follow the form of our story,
A hero must know this to garner his glory!

But I can stop any time.

Ye don't have to die, but ye must needs be initiated.  Less'n ye be a witch!  Ye ain't a witch now, are ye?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8218.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8218.jpg)

Sinthia: No!  I'm not a witch.  Just a girl under the spell of a philandering little bear.  (suppresses a sniffle and a tear.)




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror5.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror5.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Good!  I'll have no truck with witches, vile creatures!  And don't be spouting the water works child.  I and me boys will help you, but you need to go through a bit of a rite -- an initiation to increase your bond with us on this here ethereal plane.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8230.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8230.jpg)

Sinthia: I'm willing to do whatever needs to be done.  So... this rite.  Do I need to dance naked under the full moon or something?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror6.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror6.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: I thought ye said ye weren't a witch!  Only a witch performs rituals in the nude!  But ye said ye nay be a witch!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8221.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8221.jpg)

Sinthia: I'm not a witch!  Really!  I'm just new to all this.  Please -- tell me what I must do.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror2.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Mirror2.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Aye.  Ye nay be a witch, that I ken.  And while not naked, ye'll be needin' ter be in yer brassiere and skivvies. There's enough pagan roots in these things that ye need be near naked.  Now ye'll need a large room.  And ye'll be needin' thirteen candles -- one fer me and each of me boys...


FIVE MINUTES LATER...


Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: ...and that should do it.  Now, do ye got all that?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8235.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8235.jpg)

Sinthia: Yes!  I'll perform the rite tomorrow at midnight.  Thank you Capt. Bunz!



MEANWHILE, IN ANOTHER ROOM IN THE PYRAMID...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8172.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8172.jpg)

 :D I wouldn't be too hard on Ashleigh, guys.  While her methods may be questionable, her heart is usually in the right place.


btw: is Sinthia posing there all by herself leaning against the bed ??

The angles may be a bit deceiving, but both girls are, indeed, perched on the edge of a bed unassisted.  Ashleigh's feet are touching the ground, but Sinthia's are not.  The only Photoshopping in this set is the integration of the Captain's image into the mirror.

Thanks, Everhard!  When I first saw it I immediately thought "Sinthia!"

DAY 29: THE RITUAL


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8249.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8249.jpg)

Sinthia: Okay.  Candles?  Check.  Underwear?  Check.  Rum?  Check.  Bell?  Check.  Mirror?  Check.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8273.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8273.jpg)

Sinthia: I think that's everything.  I'm ready -- I just have to wait until midnight.  I should probably start lighting the candles.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8455.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8455.jpg)

Rose: Shhh!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8414.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8414.jpg)

Rose: You weren't kidding.  She's really into this!

Ashleigh: She's a smart girl, and not really gullible unless you hit her with the New Agey stuff.  Then she's a pushover.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8420.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8420.jpg)

Jasmine: Are you sure this is the best way to help her?  It seems kind of mean.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8426.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8426.jpg)

Ashleigh: Trust me, this will work.  It should get her out of her funk.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8442.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8442.jpg)

Ashleigh: Okay, you all know what to do, right?

Rose: Yep!  When she finishes the ritual, Jaz will hit the inside breakers and flash the outside floodlights.  Then I'll cue the thunderclap sound effect.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8436.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8436.jpg)

Ashleigh: Perfect.  Then I'll take the stage.  You two hold the fort -- I need to complete my makeup.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8294.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8294.jpg)

Sinthia: That's the last one.  Okay, now I just have to start the incantation.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8301.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8301.jpg)

Sinthia: I'm going to feel really stupid saying these lines if this doesn't work.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8318.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8318.jpg)

Sinthia: Oh Great Spirit of Captain Bunz, I implore ye come to me.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8326.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8326.jpg)

Sinthia: Your crew be welcome: a light, a guide for each have I laid before ye.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8336.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8336.jpg)

Sinthia: For honor, for glory!  I implore thee come!

Sinthia: (mutters to herself) I can't imagine this last part is really necessary.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8340.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8340.jpg)

Sinthia: By the name of Stan Lee -- EXCELCIOR!

(Sinthia crosses her eyes, sticks out her tongue, and rings the little bell.)




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8524.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8524.jpg)

Rose: Now!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8356.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8356.jpg)

LIGHTS FLASH OUTSIDE AS THE POWER APPARENTLY GOES OUT.  HUGE SOUND OF THUNDER.

Sinthia: (screams) Oh!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8516.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8516.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: You rang?

DAY 30: THE CAPTAIN'S PROPOSAL

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8529.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8529.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Captain Sinnamon Bunz, at your service, M'lady!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8362.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8362.jpg)

Sinthia: You're Captain Bunz?  But... you're a woman... with a beard...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8537.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8537.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Aye, lassie.  I be a woman -- the finest woman pirate ever to run rum on the Caribbean!  And as fer me beard -- well that's me badge of office.  Ye cain't be a pirate captain without havin' a beard.  Some captains were even named after their beards: Redbeard, Bluebeard and so on.  And as fer bein' a woman with a beard, it turns out that havin' a beard is just a matter of shavin' and then not shavin'.  Simple as that.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8373.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8373.jpg)

Sinthia: Okay... but what about the rum?  It didn't seem to be a part of the ritual.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8544.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8544.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: HAR!  Ken ye nothin', girl?  Rum is fer DRINKIN'!  And this is a fine spiced rum indeed.  Thank ye kindly for providin' it.  I ain't slaked me thirst with a fine rum for almost 200 years.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8380.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8380.jpg)

Sinthia: (desperately) Please Captain, can you help me break this spell.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8546.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8546.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Aye, indeed, lassie.  The way I sees it, ye've got three options.  The first is that I and me crew hunt down the little deevil and slice his fool head off.  That should end the spell right proper!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8382.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8382.jpg)

Sinthia: Oh no!  You can't kill him!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8555.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8555.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Aye, perhaps not.  Well, the second option is that I can send me boys to kidnap this Snuggles rotter and torture him until he breaks the spell.  I must admit I rather like this one!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8386.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8386.jpg)

Sinthia: I don't know... is there a way that doesn't involve violence?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8561.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8561.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Well, if that's what ye really want, there's the third option.  The Spinnaker's Kiss.  A very special potion ye'll need to brew yerse'f.  You may find your new friends helpful in putting the brew together.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8404.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8404.jpg)

Sinthia: Jasmine and Rose?  Yes... I think I can get them to help me.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8575.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8575.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz: Then the Spinnaker's Kiss it is!  I'll be takin' me leave, M'lady!



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8524.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8524.jpg)

Rose: NOW!

THE LIGHTS FLASH OUTSIDE AND A PEAL OF THUNDER IS HEARD CLOSE BY.  THE LIGHTS COME UP IN THE HOUSE.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8577.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8577.jpg)

Sinthia: She's gone!  But wait... what's this?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8581.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8581.jpg)

Sinthia: A letter?

DAY 31: THE SPINNAKER'S KISS

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8590.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8590.jpg)

Sinthia: Thanks for getting Ash and Tut out of the way, girls.  I really need your help.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8594.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8594.jpg)

Rose: We're here for you Sindy.  So what's this all about?




FLASHBACK TO THE NIGHT BEFORE...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8414.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8414.jpg)

Roise: So what's this all about, Ash?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8426.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8426.jpg)

Ashleigh: Sindy believes she's under a curse -- a love curse from Snuggles.  The only way to get her out of this melancholy mood is to make her believe the curse is broken.  My plan is a bit elaborate, but it will work.  We just need to make it all believable.  So here's the plan...




FIVE MINUTES LATER...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8442.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8442.jpg)

Ashleigh: ...and I'll leave behind a "pirate recipe" to cure her curse.  You two will then need to go into acting mode.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8436.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8436.jpg)

Ashleigh: Sin will probably ask you two to help her.  She'll want to get me out of the way, since she knows I think her New Age crap is.... well... crap.  You two need to buy into whatever she tells you.  A bit of skepticism is okay, but appear to be open and supportive.  Again, this is all about belief.  If she believes that the curse has been lifted, she'll stop this pining for Snuggles.  It's all about belief.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8420.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8420.jpg)

Jasmine: We can do this, Ashleigh.  I know we can.  Rose has gotten pretty close to Sinthia over this past month.  We'll make it work.




BACK TO THE PRESENT MOMENT...


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8592.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8592.jpg)

Sinthia: Well, you know how Snuggles was here a while back and we all got a bit crazy...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8596.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8596.jpg)

Jasmine: "Crazy" may be putting it mildly!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8598.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8598.jpg)

Sinthia: Yeah... well... Girls, I think he put a curse on me!  He's all I can think about!  And I don't want to be in love with that philandering little bear!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8600.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8600.jpg)

Jasmine: A curse?  Are you sure?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8604.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8604.jpg)

Jasmine: I mean, that sounds rather far-fetched.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8609.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8609.jpg)

Sinthia: Jaz, look at me: I'm a grown woman.  I wouldn't mope around after a stupid teddy bear!  It's got to be a spell or curse or something!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8602.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8602.jpg)

Rose: That kind of makes sense.  I mean, you're right -- you aren't the type to be pining after a stuffed bear.  But what can we do about it?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8612.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8612.jpg)

Sinthia: Well... you're not going to believe this, but the other night while I was getting ready for bed, the ghost of a pirate captain appeared in my mirror...




THE GIRLS LISTEN IN RAPT ATTENTION AS SINTHIA RECITES THE EVENTS OF THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8614.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8614.jpg)

Sinthia: ...and then the lights came on and she was gone!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8617.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8617.jpg)

Sinthia: I found this on the chair where she was sitting.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8619.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8619.jpg)

Rose: It looks like an old letter with a wax seal.  But... that lettering looks like it was done with a Sharpie pen.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8625.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8625.jpg)

Jasmine: So what does it say inside?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8636.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8636.jpg)

Sinthia: I don't know.  I've kind of been afraid to look inside.  I think I'm supposed to read it with my friends.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8628.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8628.jpg)

Jasmine: Well, we're your friends.  But... what's a spinnaker?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8632.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8632.jpg)

Rose: It's the triangular sail at the front of a sailing ship or sailboat.  It has a moving boom at the bottom that can be used to catch wind coming across the boat rather than from behind it.  That boom can be dangerous.  "Spinnaker's Kiss" sounds like a sailor's joke to me -- the kiss from a spinnaker would be like getting whacked in the head with a baseball bat by that moving boom.

Sinthia: I was thinking the same thing.  Another reason I've been nervous about opening this.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8637.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8637.jpg)

Jasmine: Well, we're here now -- open it!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8642.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8642.jpg)

Sinthia: (nervously) Okay...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8648.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8648.jpg)

Rose: You can do it.  We're right here with you.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8651.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8651.jpg)

Sinthia: Here goes...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8658.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8658.jpg)

Jasmine: So what does it say?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8654.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8654.jpg)

Sinthia: I think it's a recipe, but it's weird.  "Ye Spinnaker'f Kiff"?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8661.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8661.jpg)

Rose: Those aren't effs, Sin, they are esses.  They used to write lower-case esses as really long letters, like an integral sign in calculus.  If this document is authentic, then it's over two hundred years old!

Sinthia: Oh!  Then it is a recipe!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8665.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8665.jpg)

Ye Spinnaker's Kiss
For the banishing of Love Curses

5 jiggers of Rum
3 jiggers of Whiskey (or Brandy if ye be a Dandy)
1 mustard seed
1 Mexican pepper, hottest ye can find, crushed to a paste
4 crushed cola nuts
1 dash of cinnamon, powdered
2 cherries, whole
Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients in tall glass and garnish with cherries.  With 2 or more friends as witnesses, intone "Curse be Gone" in a strong voyse and quaff in a single swallow.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8666.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8666.jpg)

Sinthia: I'm not sure we have all of this stuff...

Rose: I'm sure we can get close -- there may be some extra ingredients in there, but that shouldn't be a problem.  Let's find those ingredients!




TEN MINUTES LATER...


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8668.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8668.jpg)

Rose: That should be it right there in your hand, Sindy -- The Spinnaker's Kiss -- or a modern approximation.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8678.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8678.jpg)

Sinthia: I'm worried about the Coke Zero.  That's more than just cola nuts.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8686.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8686.jpg)

Rose: I'm sure it's fine.  The important thing is that there's cola in there.  I don't think all the extra stuff will get in the way of the brew.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8680.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8680.jpg)

Jasmine: I'm more worried about the hot sauce we used.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8742.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8742.jpg)

Jasmine: That Jersey Death Sauce is over one million Scoville units.  One drop makes a bowl of chili almost inedible.  I think you put five drops in!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8692.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8692.jpg)

Sinthia: It said to use the hottest Mexican pepper you can find.  And that sauce is made with Red Savina Habañero peppers.  I don't know of a Mexican pepper that is any hotter.  Anyway, I say it's time to do this thing.  Everyone say "Curse be Gone!" together and I'll toss it back like a shot back in nursing college.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8700.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8700.jpg)

All: CURSE BE GONE!


Sinthia downs the entire glass in one gulp!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8705.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8705.jpg)

Capt. Sinnamon Bunz/Ashleigh: (from the ethereal plane) Arr!  The Spinnaker's Kiss.  Works every time.


~~ FIN ~~


The Spinnaker's Kiss
As prepared by the Pyramid Girls

5 parts spiced rum
3 parts brandy
1 squirt of yellow mustard (cuts the sweetness of the rum and brandy)
1 dash of extremely hot pepper sauce (OPTIONAL!)
8 parts Coke Zero or Coca Cola Classic
1 or 2 healthy sprinkles of cinnamon
A dash or two of salt to complement the mustard
2 fresh Bing cherries (garnish)

Mix all the parts together.  Without the hot sauce this is a surprisingly tasty concoction -- and the mustard is a must.  The hot sauce does give it a kick, but unless you have KingTut's iron stomach, Tabasco is a better alternative.

Note that you can get a very refreshing treat by mixing the Spinnaker's Kiss with pink lemonade.  We recommend 1 part Spinnaker's Kiss to 3 parts lemonade.

DAY 32: SILK SPECTRE

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8745.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8745.jpg)

Sinthia: (singing to herself) I'm going to Comic-Con... I'm going to Comic-Con...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8751.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8751.jpg)

Jasmine: You're up!  I hope you're feeling better.  Why are you putting on the Silk Spectre costume?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8756.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8756.jpg)

Sinthia: For Cosplay!  I'm going to Comic-Con!  It's going to be so much fun.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8753.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8753.jpg)

Jasmine: Comic-Con?  But... that's in San Diego.  And I don't think it starts for another couple of days.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8759.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8759.jpg)

Sinthia: Yep!  Comic-Con in San Diego.  They are gonna love me in this costume!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8762.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8762.jpg)

Jasmine: Ummm... yeah, but we're in Tennessee.  How are you going to get to San Diego?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8763.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8763.jpg)

Sinthia: In the car, silly!  (singing)  I'm going to Comic-Con... I'm going to Comic-Con...

Rose enters and sits between Jasmine and Sinthia.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8769.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8769.jpg)

Rose: Hey Sindy!  You feeling any better?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8778.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8778.jpg)

Sinthia: Hey Rose!  I'm feeling great!  I'm going to Comic-Con!

Rose: Honey, that doesn't start until Thursday.  Why are you wearing a costume?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8780.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8780.jpg)

Sinthia: Rose, you're so silly!  Comic-Con starts today.  You need to put on a costume -- it will be so much fun!  You better hurry, though.  We'll be leaving in a few minutes.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8772.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8772.jpg)

Rose: Sin... it's 9:00 at night.  Comic-Con is 2400 miles away.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8775.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8775.jpg)

Sinthia: You and your crazy jokes.  (singing)  I'm going to Comic-Con...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8784.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8784.jpg)

Jasmine and Rose exchange a worried look...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8793.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8793.jpg)

Jasmine: Rose and I are going to go get ready, okay?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8789.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8789.jpg)

Sinthia: Sure!  But you better hurry.  Oh Jasmine!  You should be Lara Croft!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8797.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8797.jpg)

Rose: I'm really worried about her... did we break her?

Jasmine: It was all made up, Rose.  She's not all snuggly for Snuggles, but this is weird.  We've got to tell Ashleigh.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8801.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8801.jpg)

Sinthia: Stage one complete.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8805.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8805.jpg)

Sinthia:No one  gets away with trying to mess with my mind!

btw: how's the staining coming along ??
Title: Re: The "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia" Project
Post by: KingTut on July 10, 2012, 12:29:55 PM
btw: how's the staining coming along ??

She still retains the nickname of "Bluebutt", I'm afraid, where the stains are the most persistent.

They are pretty much gone from her arms and back, but there's still strong staining on her thighs, which for some reason doesn't seem to show up in photos, or appears to be shadow.  And her butt is still really blue.  That kind of surprises me since the silicone is softer there -- I would have thought the higher oil content would have distributed the stain faster.  But the softness may be more due to her having gel behind her buttocks than any actual softness of the silicone itself.  Also, there appears to be a lot of blushing/detailing on her butt, which may or may not influence the rate of dispersion, but is worth noting.

It is still fading, but it's a SLOW process.  If I look really carefully, I can still see remnants of the stain on her left arm, for example.  But it's pretty much gone there.  And her butt looks a tiny bit lighter each day.  But it's kind of a diminishing returns game.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8819.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8819.jpg)

Sinthia: Oh man!  It's so good to get these boots off.  I just want to sleep for a week!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8845.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8845.jpg)

Jasmine: (whispering) Where has she been all this time?  Do you really think she went to Comic-Con?

Rose: She couldn't have -- even the preview doesn't open until tomorrow night.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8839.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8839.jpg)

Rose: And... she's wearing a different costume.  That's not Silk Spectre.  I think it's Sweet Pea.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8837.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8837.jpg)

Jasmine: So where has she been?  She sounds more lucid -- and tired.  But I think she's worse.  We really should have talked to Ashleigh about this.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8841.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8841.jpg)

Rose: The timing wasn't right.  Do you want Tut to know that we broke her brain?

Rose: (aloud, to Sinthia) Hey Sindy!  How was Comic-Con?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8850.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8850.jpg)

Sinthia: Comic-con?  Wow... it feels like that was ages ago.  It was great!  You really should have gone.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8872.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8872.jpg)

Jasmine: Did you go somewhere after Comic-Con?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8860.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8860.jpg)

Sinthia: Oh yes!  We've been helping Babydoll get The Map.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8859.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8859.jpg)

Rose: (in a hiss) She thinks she's Sweet Pea from that Sucker Punch movie!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8866.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8866.jpg)

Sinthia: It was crazy!  There were all these German soldiers everywhere.  And Babydoll fought them off with her sword.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8863.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8863.jpg)

Sinthia: While she kept them busy, I snuck in and grabbed The Map!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8835.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8835.jpg)

Jasmine: This is bad, Rosie... Really bad...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8873.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8873.jpg)

Rose: Um... Sweet Pea?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8875.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8875.jpg)

Sinthia: Rosie, don't be silly!  I'm Sinthia.  I only become Sweet Pea when Babydoll dances.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8880.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8880.jpg)

Sinthia: Have you seen her dance?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8886.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8886.jpg)

Sinthia: (dreamily) I think it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen anyone do...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8889.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8889.jpg)

Jasmine: We've got to let Ashleigh know.  She'll know a way out of this.

Rose: She's the one who got us in to this mess, remember?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8895.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8895.jpg)

Sinthia: But there's still so much to be done...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8886.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8886.jpg)

Sinthia: You two could help.  We still need fire, a knife and The Key.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8930.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8930.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8902.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8902.jpg)

Okay, the story has finally been added into the Day 33 post.  Enjoy!



Now this is my kind of photo set. I love the edgy look of the black leather, she's taking a walk on the wild side.

Glad you liked it, B-Zilla.  It's not exactly what I had planned for Sinthia.  But once I had her in that outfit, well...  you see where it went.  :)  It still works with the dialog so I'm really happy with Sin's interpretation of the shoot.



Words are not necessary, but your a great story teller. Awaiting the next installment  8)

Thanks incred.  Believe me, if this shoot weren't contributing to an established story arc, I'd have just left it as photos.  Sinthia is really learning how to turn on the sexy boudoir heat.

DAY 34: LEIA ORGANA

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8943.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8943.jpg)

Ashleigh: Okay so what is it that has you two so upset?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9000.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9000.jpg)

Rose: Okay, you know the whole Spinnaker's Kiss thing?  Well, we think we may have broken Sindy's brain.

Jasmine: She's behaving really strangely, Ash.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8947.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8947.jpg)

Ashleigh: "Broke her brain"?  Do you realize how ridiculous you two sound?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9009.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9009.jpg)

Rose: I'll admit it's a crude description -- but it's accurate.

The girls relate to Ashleigh the events of the past two days.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9013.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9013.jpg)

Jasmine: ...and she was saying how she would turn into Sweet Pea whenever Babydoll would dance and how they still had to find these other items and make some kind of sacrifice!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9006.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9006.jpg)

Rose: The pathology has gotten worse.  On Monday, the delusions surrounded attending Comic-Con, but she knew she was Sindy wearing a costume.  Yesterday she knew who she was, but was somewhat schizophrenic: she also thought she was the movie character under the right conditions.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8961.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8961.jpg)

Ashleigh: I'll admit that on the surface this sounds pretty bad.  But are you sure she's not pulling some hoax of her own on you two?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9011.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9011.jpg)

Rose: If it's an act, I can't tell.  We're both really scared.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9004.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9004.jpg)

Jasmine: And, Ash...  she's been disappearing during the day.  We have no idea where she was all day yesterday or where she is today.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8967.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8967.jpg)

Ashleigh:  Hmmm...  Listen: you two go take care of Tut.  Keep him away from Sin if you can.  I'll wait here for her.  It's getting pretty late, so she should be home soon.

Jasmine and Rose agree and leave Ashleigh alone to ponder her options.




TWENTY MINUTES LATER...

Sinthia bursts into the room, sweaty and panting, and collapses onto the edge of the bed.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9019.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9019.jpg)

Sinthia: I think we lost them!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8999.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8999.jpg)

Ashleigh: Lost who?  Are you dressed as Princess Leia?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9025.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9025.jpg)

Sinthia: Bounty hunters... *pant*  You seem to know me, but I'm afraid there's no time for introductions...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9039.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9039.jpg)

Sinthia: But it looks like... *pant* ...for the moment... *pant* ...that we're in the clear.  I just need a minute... to catch my breath... and get rid of some of this slave gear...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9052.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9052.jpg)

Sinthia: Han and Luke should be here any minute and then we'll need to leave.  You should probably leave, too.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8977.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_8977.jpg)

Ashleigh: Nice try.  You seriously don't think I'm going to believe that you've become Princess Leia...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9069.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9069.jpg)

Sinthia: Yes, I know that in my current state it's difficult to believe.  But these difficult times call for unusual actions.  I am, indeed the former Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan.  But seeing as both Alderaan and the House of Organa are now gone, that hardly means anything.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9080.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9080.jpg)

Sinthia: I came here on a mission to infiltrate Jabba's lair in order to set up a rescue for my friend Han.  But Jabba saw through my disguise and put me in this... this... outfit!  Ugh!  It smells worse than bantha poodoo.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9093.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9093.jpg)

Sinthia: (slipping into reverie) Jabba made me do horrible things before Luke got here.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9096.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9096.jpg)

Sinthia: Repulsive things...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9097.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9097.jpg)

Sinthia: But I was helpless... as if my mind was being controlled by someone else...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9109.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9109.jpg)

Sinthia: And so I did Jabba's bidding...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9114.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9114.jpg)

Sinthia: I saw things no human should see...   Did things no human should do...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9117.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9117.jpg)

Sinthia: And the most despicable thing of it all... as repulsed as I was by what I was seeing... what I was doing...  I enjoyed it.   I ENJOYED IT!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9120.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9120.jpg)

Sinthia: (in a small voice) It all seems so... so... surreal now.  Like it was someone else.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9134.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9134.jpg)

Sinthia: The first chance I got, I took this chain around my neck and choked the life out of him with my own two hands.  And I enjoyed that, too.

Ashleigh: (unable to meet Sinthia's eyes and with a quaver in her voice)  I think I'd better go... to get some help...  maybe Tut can help...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9142.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9142.jpg)

Sinthia: Bring all the Tuts you can spare -- we could use the manpower.  It's Huts that I hate.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9137.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9137.jpg)

Sinthia: Bring me a hut and I'll choke the life out of him with my bare hands and a smile on my face.

Ashleigh runs out of the room.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9150.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9150.jpg)

Sinthia: (smiling to herself and breaking character) Hook, line and sinker!

 Though it takes ages to load even on broadband I would not want to miss any of the episodes of this 60 day marathon.
And Sinthia in a Leia slave girl costume is beyond my wildest salivating dreams. :-*
If only she could wiggle those hips!

As an aside, my old 2003 doll "Old#7" is so loose when she hanging up you can simulate hip movement with just a prod of a finger.... :D
Must get a slave girl costume for her  and watch those hips gyrate  :laugh:

Sorry for the long download times, Ray.  :(  I've tried to negotiate between bandwidth and presentation and have pretty much settled on presenting everything at a width of 500 pixels, with every photo being clickable to be viewed at the gallery resolution.  Unfortunately, you still download the files at gallery resolution, which I've restricted to a maximum width of 800 pixels for the entire series.  (The originals for these are HUGE, since they were shot in RAW mode using a 14 megapixel camera.)

And, of course, if this were not in story format you could be more choosy about which photos get downloaded to your computer in all their glory.

I am starting to wonder if Sixty days was too long of a goal.  I don't plan on stopping, mind you, but I do wonder if it's already becoming a bit "old hat" at this point.  At this moment though, I think Ashleigh and Sinthia are the Hardest Workin' Girls in the doll world.  :P

Aaaah, Guinness does you good!
Great pint but best supped in Ireland but then its probably in Litres now, even better.
I can taste it on my lips now. :)

And of course its "old hat", one that's well worn in and comfy to wear just like my old Panama hat .
And believe me you would never hear the end of it if you do not finish the sixty days.
Perhaps you might need a pint of that lovely Guinness down yer gullet to assist you in the future shoots.
It contains IRON  ;)

To be honest I do not know how you do it , storylines , moving 80Ib dolls around then taking pics, editing  then posting it all.
Takes a lot of time and effort.

All hail his Majesty, KigTut and the of course girls, but its mostly the girls though :-*.

DAY 35: THE DILEMMA

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9154.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9154.jpg)

Rose: So... do we have a problem or is she faking it?

Ashleigh: I think it's for real.  Last night she didn't know who she was -- she thought she was Princess Leia from Return of the Jedi.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9157.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9157.jpg)

Ashleigh: She scared me.  She not only believed she was Leia, but had this whole back-story worked out about what Jabba the Hut made her do when she was enslaved.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9173.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9173.jpg)

Ashleigh: And it was more than just a back-story.  She was talking about how he was mind controlling her to not only perform sexual acts on him but controlling her to enjoy it, too.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9177.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9177.jpg)

Ashleigh: And as she talked about it, she got more and more aroused, like she was reliving it.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9184.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9184.jpg)

Jasmine: Ashleigh, we'll find a way through this.  We have to.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9189.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9189.jpg)

Ashleigh: I'm so scared right now, Jaz.  I wanted to help her... not hurt her!  And I don't know how to make it right.  And this will just kill Tut.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9208.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9208.jpg)

Rose: I know.  So whatever we do, we can't let Tut find out.

KinTut: Can't let Tut find out what?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9215.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9215.jpg)

Ashleigh: (smoothly) About Jasmine.  She over-tipped the pizza guy again.

Jasmine: Tattle-tale...

KingTutL It's fine, Jaz.  Those guys have a dangerous job and typically aren't paid all that well for it.  So... lingerie card night?  Why wasn't I invited.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9223.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9223.jpg)

Jasmine: Because nobody wants to see you in lingerie!  (giggles)

KingTut: Aw, well, I'm afraid that's true.  Where's Sindy?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9220.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9220.jpg)

Rose: She's out.  Not sure where -- I think she said something about a "surprise".

KingTut: Okay.  Hmmm....  Well, I'll let you gals get back to your game.

KingTut exits.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9231.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9231.jpg)

Jasmine:  Whew!  Good cover everyone!  We need to do something decisive here.  I say we confront her when she gets home and if she's really bonkers, we take her to the emergency room.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9235.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9235.jpg)

Ashleigh: In her mental state she won't go willingly...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9243.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9243.jpg)

Rose: Ladies -- I believe I have a plan...

DAY 36: JESSICA RABBIT

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9250.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9250.jpg)

Sinthia: So, Beautiful, do you come here often?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9470.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9470.jpg)

Ashleigh: Um... sure... Jessica?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9265.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9265.jpg)

Sinthia: Of course.  You are familiar with my work.  Everyone is.  Have you seen my husband?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9477.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9477.jpg)

Ashleigh: Your husband?  Roger?  Umm... he, uh, chickened out on me.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9280.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9280.jpg)

Sinthia: No, he didn't.  I hit him over the head with a frying pan and stuck him in the trunk... so he wouldn't get hurt.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9503.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9503.jpg)

Ashleigh: Makes perfect sense.  So... um, Jessica... you're smoking now?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9299.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9299.jpg)

Sinthia: One look should tell you that I'm always smoking... but this?  It's just part of the image.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9514.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9514.jpg)

Ashleigh: Well, it's quite a stunning image.  You are so glamorous.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9317.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9317.jpg)

Sinthia: (sighs) You don't know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9498.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9498.jpg)

Ashleigh: (surpressing a giggle)I'm sure it's difficult, especially with the image you have to maintain.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9333.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9333.jpg)

Sinthia: (almost pleading) I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9472.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9472.jpg)

Ashleigh: So, Jessica -- who will you be tomorrow?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9365.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9365.jpg)

Sinthia: Jessica Rabbit, same as today.  Are you okay, Gorgeous?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9527.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9527.jpg)

Ashleigh: I'm fine... but you aren't doing so well...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9374.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9374.jpg)

Sinthia: Whatever could you mean?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9536.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9536.jpg)

Ashleigh: GET HER, GIRLS!




Like a flash, Rose flies across the counter and throws a sheet over Sinthia.  Jasmine dashes out from her hiding place and grabs Sinthia's legs.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9379.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9379.jpg)

Sinthia: AAAAHHHHHGGGGGHHHHH!

Thanks, guys!  I do realize I screwed up one thing, though: Jessica does the Veronica Lake hair thing throughout Who Framed Roger Rabbit, where a lock of hair is always covering one eye.  That was a missed opportunity.  :(  I've gotten so fastidious about keeping hair out of the girls' faces that I forgot it would be in character in this instance.

As a side note, I had a girlfriend right after I got out of high school who wore her hair that way.  There was always a swath of blonde hair covering one side of her face.  It was damn sexy.  She was a very average-looking gal, but that hair style always seemed to be either promising something or adding to her mystery.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9380.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9380.jpg)

Sinthia: Rose!  Are you crazy?!?  Get me out of here!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9390.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9390.jpg)

Rose: It's for your own good.  We're going to get you some help.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9386.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9386.jpg)

Jasmine: We really didn't mean for you to lose you head, Sindy.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9395.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9395.jpg)

Sinthia: Nothing's wrong with me.  It was all a joke!  I was playing you three.




Rose let's go and Sinthia removes the sheet.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9492.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9492.jpg)

Ashleigh: Wait... you were playing us?  But what about that strangling the Huts stuff?  And the erotic mind control?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9397.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9397.jpg)

Sinthia: Backstory and acting -- you weren't the only one to study acting around here m'dear.  I may have a master's in nursing, but I also have a minor in drama.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9501.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9501.jpg)

Ashleigh: But why?  You had us thinking you had gone bonkers!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9411.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9411.jpg)

Sinthia: Seriously, "Captain Sinnamon Bunz"?  You have to ask?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9524.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9524.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9436.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9436.jpg)

Sinthia: I'll admit, you had me going at first.  Even with you using your old stage name.  I missed that at first.  But then something Rose said triggered me to realize what was going on.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9448.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9448.jpg)

Rose: Something I said?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9451.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9451.jpg)

Sinthia: You said the cover of the Spinnaker's Kiss letter looked like it was written with a Sharpie pen.  And it was!  And the inside was written with a ball point pen.  Neither of those existed 200 years ago.  And then there were those long esses.  I'm sure you were proud of them, Ash, but you forgot to do them on the outside of the letter in the word "Kiss"!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9548.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9548.jpg)

Ashleigh: Ugh!  I was hoping you wouldn't pick up on that.  So you decided to get back at us?  Honestly, we were just trying to help you get over Snuggles.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9456.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9456.jpg)

Sinthia: Oh, I got over Snuggles, all right.  And it wasn't so much getting back as it was wanting to see if I could fool you as well as you had me.  Are we still friends?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9405.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9405.jpg)

Jasmine: Of course we are!  You really had us going, there, Sindy.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9576.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9576.jpg)

Ashleigh: All is forgiven, Sin.  I'm just glad you aren't a nutcase!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9569.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9569.jpg)

DAY 38: STUDDED LBD

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9587.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9587.jpg)

She was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen, or at least seen recently.  Radiant with her red hair and little black dress

KingTut: Do you realize you are the most beautiful woman here?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9589.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9589.jpg)

Ashleigh: Seeing as I'm the only woman here, that's not much of a complement.

KingTut: That fact doesn't diminish your beauty in the least.  Can I sit here?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9593.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9593.jpg)

Ashleigh: Nice recovery.  There may be some hope for you yet. Take a seat.

KingTut: My name is Tut.  What's yours?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9599.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9599.jpg)

Ashleigh: Ashleigh.  So what brings you here, Tut?

KingTut: I didn't know until just now.... you do.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9606.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9606.jpg)

Ashleigh: Okay, that was good.  A little hackneyed, but sincerely delivered..

KingTut: I've never had my dialog analyzed so intently before.  Are you a psychiatrist?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9620.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9620.jpg)

Ashleigh: No, an actress.  Or I guess I used to be.  I'm a model now.

KingTut: The way you look?  That's no surprise at all.  But you seem smarter than the average model.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9622.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9622.jpg)

Ashleigh: Are you always so free with your complements, Tut?

KingTut: Only when they are deserved.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9626.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9626.jpg)

Ashleigh: Well... (blushing) I'm not sure how to respond to that.

KingTut: So respond to this: what would you say if I asked you to leave with me?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9633.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9633.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9637.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9637.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9645.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9645.jpg)

Ashleigh: Wait a second, Tiger... I said I'd be willing to leave.  I don't recall agreeing to a destination.

KingTut: Obviously, I'm getting ahead of myself.  Where would you like to go?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9648.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9648.jpg)

Ashleigh: Actually.... your place sounds like a good plan.  Let's go!

Ash is such a looker, her fair skin shines in that black dress. I also have to commend your subtle hand at conveying the look of a conversation, Tut.

Great photos.

agreed! Very nice use of available light Tut


... but I have one remark: I guess you didn't use a tripod as you bumped the iso up to 3200 and 4000 which kinda shows in noisy/grainy images (not too bad in the small pix you show here, but probably more obvious in the larger files viewed on a bigger screen). If a grainy effect was what you were going for than that's okay, but otherwise I would suggest to keep the iso a bit lower and use a tripod. Easier said than done; I hate to use them myself, as I find them very restricting and slowing me down (too much) and won't be using them unless I really really need to  :D

Howdy Tut!

I just now finished looking at all those pages of your many photo shoots.  I didn't find this thread right away because I was expecting you to post your reviews and stuff under the Sinthetics forum.  I understand why you put it here in The Art Gallery now though.  Glad you're enjoying your dolls so much, especially in such creative ways. 

Man, I'm sorry about her fingers.  It broke my heart for you when I read that because I was thinking what you were about Sinthetics don't get finger pokes.  A painful lesson I've learned in advance through you making us aware of it, and I'm grateful you shared that.  I was a little sorry to hear she can't 180 on radial/ulnar turn to palm up.  And the wanting to pose the hands as intricately as real life by bending the end part of the finger having caused damage is a shame as well.  I've learned a lot beyond the common knowledge stuff about dolls in general through your highly-detailed posts in this thread.  Thanks for that, and I'm looking forward to seeing the remaining of the 60 days in the project. 
Oh, when you took her out in public (the shoot that didn't get captured because of no memory card), you made it kinda seem like it didn't go well for reasons other than the memory card.  Were y'all poorly received in public?  Just a perception on your part?  Or it wasn't as much fun as it was a hassle?  Curious about that because I'm thinking of taking my doll out on at least one outdoor shoot. 

Congratulations again, and keep 'em comin' man!

Hey Kano,

As for the out in public shoot, I think if I had an assistant it would be no issue at all.  It would make it look like something more "official" -- the work of an artist and his crew in progress.  But a guy by himself with a camera and a life-sized doll has an aura of weirdness about it that is hard to shake -- especially in a southern town.  Until I can enlist a helper, it's unlikely I'll be taking her out again.  :(  Which is really too bad -- the playground shoot would have been a highlight of this series had I actually captured it.

...a guy by himself with a camera and a life-sized doll has an aura of weirdness about it that is hard to shake -- especially in a southern town...

So, I guess that falls into my second question (Just a perception on your part?)  I think it depends on the size of the city.  Houston is such a big city containing a little slice of just about everything you could see in the world, it may not be all that poorly received, even in the south.  Happiness told me about how judgemental folks can be at times in the neck of the woods y'all stay in though.  Nonetheless, I feel I would have the same nervousness about taking my doll outside you had, even if just going down to the lake at my apartments.  There's always room for pleasant surprise though, like what Bomi reported when he was driving Cora around in his car and took her to the beach.  You've always seemed like a confident guy though, Tut, and you're well spoken enough to explain to any curious people who want to take a closer look in such a way that they could share your fascination.  Anybody who would want to think badly about you for having a doll would probably steer clear entirely...which is good!  I think you should definitely try that (or some other outdoor shoot) again sometime soon.  Just remember the damn memory card next time!   :laugh: 

K

P.S.  I love your new avatar!  First time I haven't seen an Egyptian theme out of you!

I would really love to give you a hand, as you say a small team doing the shoot would not be a problem with the public.
But a guy on his own ...... well not such a good idea.

Sad I'm in London,   pay for my flight and accommodation and I would be there like a shot. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Might even bring Mirabel along, be a laugh booking a seat for her on the plane though. (I wonder if you could actually do that ?)

DAY 42: TEMPTATION

As an author, I'm often surprised by the attachment that my audience will sometimes have to a throwaway character -- a character that I needed only to advance a part of a plot.  And in the work I've done with dolls, there's one throwaway character that I constantly get questions about, with the principle question being "When are we going to see Percival the Python again?"

Well, by popular demand, I present Percy and Ashleigh in a timeless story.  A story so oft-told, it requires no further narration...

DAY 44: I WANT TO BE A TEDDY BABE


Tonight we encounter Ashleigh channel surfing and wearing a rather familiar-looking green teddy...

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9942.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9942.jpg)

KingTut: Hey Ash.  Are you wearing Rose's teddy?  The cups are a bit small for you.  Heck, they were too small for her!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9946.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9946.jpg)

Ashleigh: They are a bit small, but they almost cover everything that needs covering.  And the rest of it fits fine. 

KingTut: But why are you wearing it in the fist place?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9950.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9950.jpg)

Ashleigh: I wanted to see what it's like to be a Teddy Babe.  Rose and Jasmine don't have to prepare for a shoot every day like Sindy and I do.  They don't go to work.  They just hang out, play games and watch TV all day.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9959.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9959.jpg)

Ashleigh: (sigh) But it looks like there's nothing worth watching on T.V. right now...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9962.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9962.jpg)

Ashleigh: ...and there are so many channels.  Any ideas?

KingTut: Try one of the movie channels.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9967.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9967.jpg)

Ashleigh: That's a good idea!  And I've already made popcorn.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9976.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9976.jpg)

Ashleigh: (with a sly smlie) You're pretty handy to have around.  I think we'll keep you.

Excitedly, Ashleigh changes position, laying on her stomach.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9987.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9987.jpg)

Ashleigh: When Harry Met Sally!  I love this movie.  Will you watch it with me?

KingTut: If you'll share your popcorn, sure...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9995.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9995.jpg)

Ashleigh: Hey!  Get your own popcorn!  This is mine.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9991.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_9991.jpg)

Ashleigh: (muttering to herself)  The guy has one good idea and thinks he can have my popcorn...

:D  Thanks guys. 

And while I know you are having fun with the "doesn't fit" theme, from a technical standpoint, those cups are WAY too small for her.  The teddy has underwires built into it, which should fit snugly beneath the breast all along the crease where the breast tissue meets the chest.  The wires here aren't big enough to go around the base of the breast, and even if they did, the cups would have no coverage -- which, with Ashleigh, isn't necessarily a bad thing. :)  You can see the outline of the underwires floating about a 1/3 of the way up her breasts.  If Ash were not Ash, this would be a very uncomfortable piece of lingerie the way she is wearing it.

The same thing happens on TBs, too, by the way.  They are delivered with the wires floating about 1/3 up their plush breasts.

Ashleigh talks a big game about how she helps out around here, but it's mostly just that: talk!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0024.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0024.jpg)

TUT!  Ugh.... he can't hear me.  He's probably watching some chick flick with Ashleigh back in the bedroom.  I can hear popcorn popping in the microwave -- that's a sure sign.



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0036.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0036.jpg)

Anyway... what was I saying?  Oh yeah...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0044~0.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0044~0.jpg)

Right now... is she helping with the laundry at all? 




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0045~0.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0045~0.jpg)

No!  She's watching a movie and making popcorn.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0051.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0051.jpg)

So you tell me who is lazy around here!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0056.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0056.jpg)

I know.  It sounds like I have a Cinderella complex.  But seriously, for all she talks about helping out around here, she doesn't do all that much.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0063.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0063.jpg)

There are costumes from a shoot three weeks ago that she said she'd put away that are still sitting out.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0065.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0065.jpg)

She could be dealing with that right now while she's watching that movie...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0073.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0073.jpg)

Hmm.. is that popcorn burning?  HEY ASH!  YOUR POPCORN IS BURNING IN THE MICROWAVE!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0089.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0089.jpg)

And there goes the smoke alarm...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0094.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0094.jpg)

You'd think she could watch her own popcorn.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0099.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0099.jpg)

Ah, that's the last one.  I'll just put these away...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0108.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/IMG_0108.jpg)

...and then it's Me Time.

Tut!  There you are.  Wanna watch the latest episode of The Glades with me?

It's sexy as hell, the way her hair gradually comes undone during the course of her chores. She looks so tired and... vulnerable.  ;)

With only the soaps to look forward to, and not even any pop corn.
Title: Re: The "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia" Project
Post by: KingTut on July 23, 2012, 11:34:03 AM
It makes me so happy when you guys notice the little details -- in this instance her hair slowly coming undone and her legs changing for comfort.  (By the way, in the last photos with her hair down, she's wearing the hair elastic on her left wrist, but I don't think any of the angles show it.)

Hopefully you are learning their personalities as well.  Where Ashleigh is generally very sweet and a bit introverted, she contrasts that with rather intense, generalized flashes of jealousy surrounding Tut and a wee bit of a superiority complex.  Sindy is much more relaxed and outgoing, but in her quiet moments we find that despite her bravado, she's very insecure and her jealous moments are focused on her best friend, Ashleigh.

I would note that I used "Tut" in the third person intentionally.  The "KingTut" character in these vignettes is not me, but another character that resembles me in many ways.  :P  So how confusing is that?

This is the first set with Sindy where I finally feel like I'm seeing "her" in all the photos in the set.  I've had a very hard time consistently capturing who I believe Sinthia is in the photos.  But here we are, 45 days later, and I think I've finally got her!  :)  I had Ash somewhere between Days 1 and 2, but Sindy has been hard to capture for some reason.  I also realized prior to this shoot that I need to play up Sindy's profile more -- her face is lovely in profile and doesn't get photographed that way often enough.


EDIT: Also I need to apologize for some of the tiny blurs in a few of the photos.  :(  I was experimenting with some different settings for this set and the shutter times were a bit longer than I'm good at holding freehand.  (Most were 1/13 to 1/10 of a second -- I normally freehand at 1/30 of a second.)  I should have used a tripod this time around -- or taken a few more "safety" shots with my breath held.

Post by: Piskull on July 23, 2012, 01:27:14 PM
I can see it is noticeable in three shots, but the blurry profile shot sort of adds to the effect of the photo, it seems like a domestic picture you would find in any family album of a wife or mother folding clothes, and even though it forgets focus, it seems to accidentally enhance that shot by making it seem like anyone could relate to it. The composition and angle are good, and I think it was a good decision to keep that photo in the set.

DAY 46: SNOOPING

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-005.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-005.jpg)

Tut's been so tired and distracted lately, I figured I would surprise him.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-010.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-010.jpg)

This is the skimpiest lingerie I could find.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-013.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-013.jpg)

I wonder when he's going to get home?  I could be waiting like this for a while...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-019.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-019.jpg)

Maybe there's something in the nightstand to read while I'm waiting.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-021.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-021.jpg)

Wow... there's all sorts of stuff in here.  A tape measure, valerian root, pain cream... wait a second, that's mine!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-023.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-023.jpg)

I brought this lubricant bottle with me from California.  What's it doing in this drawer?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-027.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-027.jpg)

Was Tut rummaging through my purse?  Hmmm...  Well, what else is in here?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-032.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-032.jpg)

A remote control... but it doesn't work with the TV that's in here.  Weird.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-034.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-034.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-036.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-036.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-042.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-042.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-049.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-049.jpg)

...it buzzes!  I think I know what I can do with this...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-051.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-051.jpg)

Just a squirt of this...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-056.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-056.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-058.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day46-058.jpg)

I think I... found something... to entertain my... *gasp* ...self... while I... wait for Tut... to get home.

Thanks, Gren!  Ashleigh is my baby and sometimes I get lucky enough for that to come through in pictures like this one.

Thanks, LIP!  She is looking a bit over -- there are limitations to how high she can hold her arms without assistance (the joints in the shoulders have loosened quite a bit) and to how low I can get her head to tilt without looking like a hanging victim.  I tried compensating with her eyes, but that just made her look like she was freaked out by what she saw.  I can probably get more tilt at the head (as opposed to the neck) if I cut out the back of the mouth cavity, as Mark has done with Tasha, but I don't want to do it without proper instructions -- and I just haven't had time to ask the right questions.  Maybe after this 60 day marathon is over...

Jasmine: Okay so we're here -- except Sindy.  Do either of you know what this is all about?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-001a.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-001a.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-002.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-002.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-004.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-004.jpg)

Ashleigh: Remember?  That's when Sin put on that Babydoll costume and they did that pose-down.  Do you think it could be another small doll?  Maybe that's what Sin is "preparing" for: another silly costumed pose-down.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-005.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day47-005.jpg)

Being totally unaware of your new purchase, at first I found that Sinthia had something different in her. Firstly I focused on the lips and I didn't recognized her cherry red lips. Then, I thought it's was due to the light and camera. When looking at her eyes, I said to myself "King played with some make up on sinthia"...lastly I realized that her skintone was different but as the body was the same color I thought it's was due to light again...I was completly tricked as I didn't expect such a surprise at all :-[ lol  :-[

It's awesome to welcome another girl in the pyramid !  :) Especially with a completly different body, skintone and face. I can't wait to see them side by side in your future shoots. It's so exiting !

Who is this person? why did she land in the pyramid?

If I am correct you are increasing the multiple doll ownership thing ............................ those breasts look familiar  ;)
Speaking of cats... this one is now out of the bag!  :D  I have, indeed, taken on another two-headed lodger.  Miranda is a Sinthetics 1H Celeste with Dolce skin tone.  You can see all of her specs here: http://sinthetics.com/2012/01/09/delivered-celeste-1h-sinthetics/  Scroll to the very last entry.  She also has a Tawny head that I have named Bailey, which can be found as the second entry from the bottom on this page: http://sinthetics.com/2012/01/10/delivered-tawny-1h-sinthetics/  I notified Bronwen yesterday that I was taking possession of her and they've already updated her records.

I'll be making an "official" announcement thread over in the Sinthetics forum once Bailey has been introduced in the Day 48 post here.  I thought it would be fun to introduce Miranda and Bailey through a "Sixty Days..." story line.  I hope that most of you were surprised.  :)




sorry for being critical ... from the sideline, without really knowing with what kinda limitations you have to make due during posing and photography  :)
No need to apologize, L-I-P -- I find your comments to be very valuable.




Get the f**k outta here!  You got that dude's 1H Tawny with additional Celeste head that was for sale in the ODC Auction Block?!  Wow!  Things are fixin' to get interesting there at The Pyramid...I can feel it!
Yep, that's where she came from!  The original owner lives about six miles from me. Pretty wild, eh?  When he dropped the price a few days ago I lost all resistance.  I saw her on Monday night and picked her up yesterday.  CuriousAndFit is a great guy with a beautiful home.


Miranda?  Mass Effect reference?  I can see it with that face and hair style/color!  Cool man!
I did not go into naming her with Mass Effect in mind, but it was the Mass Effect 2 character that sealed the deal.  I was setting her up for her photos and thinking about what to name her.  For some weird reason I knew she already had a name and it started with an "M" -- I just had to discover it.  (Yeah, it sounds bizarre, but this is how it actually went.)  So I started running through M names in my head and when I hit "Miranda" it was like a puzzle piece fell into place.  I just looked at her and suddenly saw little bits of the ME2 character shining through -- even though the doll's skin is MUCH darker -- and that sealed the deal.  Her name was Miranda from that moment on.




Congrats Tuttster ! (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/chat/img/emoticons/bow.gif)

I actually prefer the 1B over the 1H, but between the proximity of the seller and the price (and the fact that she is gorgeous) I couldn't pass her up.  Is there a 1B in my future?  Well, not in the NEAR future.-- my finances need to recover a bit -- but maybe someday.




Ashleigh looks fantastic in the blue shorts, her legs are beautiful.
:D  Thanks, B.  Ash definitely has great legs!  Those shorts are actually pajama bottoms.  They were worn as part of a set by Sinthia in the post that started the Captain Sinnamon Bunz saga.

Rest easy, Piskull.  While there is a minor story element to be served by Sindy's "making preparations", the real reason for her absence was logistics.  Since Ashleigh and Sinthia share a body it was just easier on me to have her be away.  Plus I was very limited on time last night between picking up Miranda, prepping for her shoot, taking a (not so) quick break in the chat room, setting up the other girls for their part, editing pix, uploading pix, putting the post together and then finally attending to inspecting Miranda, repairing her so that she could be properly bathed and finally getting her bathed and dried...  well, you can imagine that I didn't need the additional pressure of redressing the 2D body for Sinthia and shooting her pieces added to the mix.  I think I finally got to bed around 4:00 AM today.  Needless to say, I'm REALLY tired right now.  :P




Being totally unaware of your new purchase, at first I found that Sinthia had something different in her. Firstly I focused on the lips and I didn't recognized her cherry red lips. Then, I thought it's was due to the light and camera. When looking at her eyes, I said to myself "King played with some make up on sinthia"...lastly I realized that her skintone was different but as the body was the same color I thought it's was due to light again...I was completly tricked as I didn't expect such a surprise at all :-[ lol  :-[

It's awesome to welcome another girl in the pyramid !  :) Especially with a completly different body, skintone and face. I can't wait to see them side by side in your future shoots. It's so exiting !

Who is this person? why did she land in the pyramid?

 :D
I'm both sorry and amused at your reaction Grenouille.  I was kind of expecting that there would be folks thinking I'd pulled a fast one and just made Sindy up to look different.  I would have actually introduced Bailey first to reduce that confusion and make it painfully obvious that there is a new doll at the Pyramid, but that face had some rather noticeable damage that needed to be addressed before she could be photographed.

As to personalities, I think most people will like Miranda a great deal.  I'm not going to give anything away, but I would note that she's already asserted a bit of her personality between her opening reaction to Ashleigh and her body language in her introductory photo. 

Bailey will be another story entirely.  I think people will be entertained greatly by Bailey, but many of you may not find her likable -- others will.  That will be a distinct change from my other girls who, in general, have personalities that appeal to just about everyone.



I'm afraid that despite being very tired, though, this will be a late night as well.  I have a rehearsal I need to get to shortly, so I won't be able to even start on the Day 48 shoot until later tonight.  It will be uploaded and posted tonight, though!  :D

I thought I heard through the grapevine that you would be adding to the harem.

It's nice coming home to a house full of dolls except for the bank account.

DAY 48: MIRANDA


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-002.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-002.jpg)

Ashleigh: So... Miranda, what are you doing in our house?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-036.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-036.jpg)

Miranda: This is the Pyramid, right?  KingTut sent me here.  He said it was safe.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-005.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-005.jpg)

Jasmine: That sounds like Tut.  My name is Jasmine.  And this is Ashleigh and Rose.  Are you in trouble, Miranda?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-042.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-042.jpg)

Miranda:  That would be an understatement.  I'm not sure I really want to get into it now, but here's the Cliff's Notes version:




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-043.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-043.jpg)

Miranda: I met these guys a while back and they seemed like decent people.  But it turns out they are really bad news.  They are into all sorts of criminal activity.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-046.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-046.jpg)

Miranda: I just found out about what they were into and I didn't want to be associated with them.  So I took off.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-048.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-048.jpg)

Miranda: They found me in less than a day.  I swear, they wanted to... want to kill me!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-011.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-011.jpg)

Ashleigh: (feeling a bit ashamed) That's horrible, Miranda.  I'm so sorry...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-052.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-052.jpg)

Miranda: I had heard about KingTut and the Pyramid and thought he would be someone who would understand my situation and could help.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-025.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-025.jpg)

Jasmine: You wouldn't be the first troubled woman to walk through that door seeking Tut's help...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-031.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-031.jpg)

Rose: Guilty as charged.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-053.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-053.jpg)

Miranda: Tut said I'd be welcome to stay here -- and that I'd be safe from those men...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-028.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-028.jpg)

Rose: Tut never could resist a stray kitten.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-019.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-019.jpg)

Ashleigh: Well, if Tut says you're welcome here, then so do I.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-010.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-010.jpg)

Ashleigh: Welcome to the Pyramid!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-055.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-055.jpg)

Miranda: Thank you all, so much.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-056.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-056.jpg)

Miranda: Do you mind if I sit down?  It's been a harrowing several days.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-033.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-033.jpg)

Rose: You can sit here, next to me.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-060.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-060.jpg)

Miranda: Ahhh... you don't know how good it feels to just relax without having to feel the need to look over your shoulder.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-062.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-062.jpg)

Miranda: This whole experience has been rather surreal.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-065.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-065.jpg)

Rose: I can imagine.  Hmmm....

Rose: (under her breath)  30... 29... 28...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-067.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-067.jpg)

Ashleigh: What's she doing?  Some kind of anger management exercise?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-068.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-068.jpg)

Jasmine: She's anticipating the other shoe.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-069.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-069.jpg)

Ashleigh: What other shoe?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-070.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-070.jpg)

Jasmine: We've noticed that this family tends to grow in Biblical proportions.

Rose: 21... 20... 19...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-071.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-071.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-072.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-072.jpg)

Jasmine: Think about how Noah was instructed to bring animals into the Ark.

Rose: 13... 12... 11...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-073.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-073.jpg)

Ashleigh: There were seven of each kind of bird and seven of each kind of clean animal...

Rose: 9... 8... 7...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-075.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-075.jpg)

Jasmine: Leave it to a Bible scholar to mention the part most people don't know about or remember.  What about the rest?

Rose: 6... 5... 4...



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-077.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-077.jpg)

Just to be clear, Miranda and Another Mysterious Stranger (Bailey) share a body.  I'm sure you know this B-Zilla, but I don't want anyone else getting led astray.

And you want to TRIPLE the number of days?  I'll be jobless, homeless and near death if I attempted that.  :D  Sixty is sufficient!



The way Miranda plays with her hair is sexy as hell, BTW. Great storytelling.

:D Thanks!  There's a short sequence in the Galleries that I'm considering animating of her doing that.    And it is sexy as hell!

DAY 49: BAILEY

Last time, we met Another Mysterious Stranger:



(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-086.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day48-086.jpg)

Another Mysterious Stranger: I don't feel sho good...

The stranger takes a few more steps into the room and collapses to the floor in front of Ashleigh.  The girls, except for the exhausted Miranda, jump to her aid.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-002.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-002.jpg)

Ashleigh: Oh my gosh!  Is she dead?  Oh, I wish Sindy was here.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-004.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-004.jpg)

Jasmine: She's breathing, but it's shallow.  I don't think she hit her head.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-007.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-007.jpg)

Ashleigh: I think I feel a pulse. 





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-008.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-008.jpg)

Rose: I'll get her legs.  It should help with her circulation.  Anyone know who she is?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-038.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-038.jpg)

Miranda: I think her name is Bailey.  She was in the same facility... um... was with the same men I ran from.  It looks like she got out, too.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-009.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-009.jpg)

Ashleigh: Facility?  Got out?  There's more to this than what you've told us.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-010.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-010.jpg)

Rose: Ashleigh's right.  It seems like you are hiding something, Miranda.  What else do you know about this woman?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-044.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-044.jpg)

Miranda: That's about it.  Just her name and that she can be a bit loud and wild.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-013.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-013.jpg)

Rose: Well, she certainly was loud a minute ago.  And she sounded drunk.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-014.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-014.jpg)

Jasmine: Or maybe drugged.  I think she's coming around.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-015.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-015.jpg)

Ashleigh: Bailey?  How are you feeling?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-019.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-019.jpg)

Ashleigh: Did you hit your head when you passed out?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-025.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-025.jpg)

Bailey: Unnnh....  No...  I don't think so.  Did I pass out?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-023.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-023.jpg)

Jasmine: Yes.  You sounded kind of drunk just before you blacked out.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-026.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-026.jpg)

Bailey: Not drunk... sedated...  too scared...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-022.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-022.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-031.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day49-031.jpg)

Used to cycle there with my pocket money to watch Roy Rodgers and all the other movies as a kid.

But maybe your just a good script writer cause you always manage the....... cliffhanger.................. >:(

Post by: KingTut on July 27, 2012, 01:03:31 PM
I'm afraid I'm a bit too young to have been a regular attender of the Saturday Serials, but I do know enough about them to understand the sense of nostalgia. 

For the purposes of what we do here, the cliffhangers are both a dramatic device and an expression of expediency.  I try to keep the number of photos in the posts to under 20 and in the galleries to under 30.  So finding a good cliffhanger point in the dialog helps keep (most) of the posts in this series to a reasonable size. 

And sometimes, the cliffhanger is there because even *I* don't know what's going to happen next!   :o 

It does mean I have to work on continuity issues, though, when I don't shoot all of the segments at the same time.  This last saga has been shot on separate days, so I need to make sure the girls are all clothed the same and have the same props available to them.

Great installment, Tut. I applaud your sense of devotion and imagination. I'm way too ADD to ever pull anything like this off, but then again, I don't have a Sinthetic.   ;)

You've done a great job with the girls in conveying a sense of care and nurturing, the Teddy Babes especially seem to be cut-out for this type of thing, and Ashleigh's eyes always struck me as being sympathetic anyway.

I'm looking forward to the next episode and finding out just what this facility has to do with everything and how it will effect the girl's fledgling new lives at the "Pyramid"... which I'm now beginning to think must be an acronym for something...

Pretty Young Rescue Agency of Maidens In Distress.   :o

Keep up the good work.
Title: Re: The "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia" Project
Post by: KingTut on July 27, 2012, 03:15:00 PM
Thanks so much, B-Zilla.  I really appreciate comments like these. :D 

With the exception of the new girls (Bailey and Miranda), all of my "big girls" have written biographies.  They are short, 2 page affairs, but they guide how each character presents herself.  And elements of dialog reflect things in the bios that have not really been revealed.  A good example is that Sinthia has a Master's Degree in Nursing from Vanderbilt University.  Over the past 49 installments I believe the dialog has been influenced at least three times by the fact that she has medical knowledge without revealing this.  (The most recent being in this last post where Ashleigh "wishes Sindy was here" after expressing concern that Bailey might be dead.)  Another example of dialog that's been influenced by these bios is the various references to Ashleih's acting and modeling careers.

Rose and Jasmine have a back-story that over the course of the last three years has not been revealed at all, with the exception of the revelation that Rose went to a reform school.  And there's only a trail of breadcrumbs to indicate whether or not our sweet and innocent Jasmine was there as well.  Last night's installment is the first time the girls have ever alluded to the reason they live at the Pyramid.  It's in the bios... but I currently have no plans to expound on that yet.  :)

I love your acrostic for the Pyramid, B! And it's not that far off...

---------------------------

Your comments have prompted one other thought that I feel I should reveal.  You mentioned "devotion" and it struck me that more than just the challenge of doing the full sixty days, there's a devotion there as well.  I've mentioned that I really haven't had time to, for example, get clear advice on how to deal with finger pokes or that I've been rather tired lately.  And to some those comments may seem a bit silly.  I mean, how long does it take to write a stinking email?

So I thought it might be useful to lay out what it takes to do each day's installment.

Preparation: ½ hour to 2 hours



Shooting: 1 to 2½ hours



Editing: 1-3 hours



Upload: 10-45 minutes

This is the only part of the process that isn't any fun.  CopperMine is a PAIN to upload to since it limits you to five photos at a time and you have to individually place photos in albums.  Lately it's gotten even less fun since Google Chrome has suddenly decided that it likes to randomly crash on the album selection page.



Post: ½ hour to 3 hours

This involves writing up the post and inserting the picture references.  I insist on making all photographs clickable and on color-coding the dialog by speaker, so the markup for most posts looks pretty ugly.  I normally write up the post right here on the site using the post editor, but for more complex posts I do the entire write-up (including BBCode tags) in Notepad and then copy the completed post to the post editor.  I try to preview out all errors before posting, but I still go back and re-read the post to make sure there isn't anything I've missed, so sometimes an edit or two gets applied a few minutes after a story has been posted.

A typical post takes about 1½ hours to write and review.



Update the index: 5 minutes

The first post in this thread (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4049.msg45701#msg45701) has a hyperlinked index to each Day in the series.  I try to keep this updated daily.



Announce on UKLDF: 10 minutes

I post an announcement each day over at the UK Love Doll Forum (http://www.uklovedollforums.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=2866&page=11) (Gibmodoll) with a one line synopsis and a couple of teaser photos.



Chat
I try to get in 30 minutes to an hour in chat most days if I can.  Partially because I enjoy it, and partially because doing an undertaking like this and then NOT being available in chat just seemed rude to me.



I've been doing this every day for the past 49 days...  Well, in many cases I've shot multiple Days on a single day to create a backlog, but the times still apply in terms of the overall effort involved in posting any particular Day.  Even when using a shoot from my backlog, getting it uploaded and posted usually takes 1½ to 2½ hours.  A typical post represents about 5 hours of effort (not counting chat room time. :))  So, in a way, I've taken on a second job for these Sixty Days.

And you wonder why I balk at the idea of 180 days...  :P

It's a lot of work indeed. I didn't realized it took so much of your time to do all these awesome set and stories. You do it so well that we forget the work behind (shame on us  :-[ lol)...but that's THE good thing for us. Only entertainment and joy when looking at your work ! You are a perfectionist and it makes all the difference :)

The cat is so cute. It likes to appears in the stories with the ladies. The way he moved his head while you took the picture made me laugh. I think he stole the show in that picture. But on the others Bailey is the center of attention...she seems more beautiful with a good camera. It makes justice to her pink lips and skintone.

I'm eager to know the next chapter ;)

I think I speak for all of us here: We realy appreciate you effort here Tut !!

The people which own a doll may have some indication how long it takes to shot some good photos but your shots and your little stories seams so easy that the effort it takes may be somtimes forgotten.

Keep up the great work. I am looking forward each day to see a new photo set of "See the next episode of our stunning Pyramid girls".

Best wishes,
Meschler

P.S.: By the way: congratulation to your new girl(s). I hope we will get one or two photo sets which will show body 1H and 2D side by side and compare their differences. That would be awesome.

DAY 50: BAILEY'S STORY

After Bailey's startling entrance, the girls decide to continue their conversation in the kitchen.  It's late and there's still no sign of Sinthia or KingTut.  Ashleigh makes some coffee and Jasmine sets out some cookies to snack on while they talk.

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-005.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-005.jpg)

Ashleigh: Okay, Miranda, spill it: what is this all about?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-010.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-010.jpg)

Miranda: If you don't mind, I think Bailey should tell you what she knows first.  I'll fill what I can from there.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-042.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-042.jpg)

Jasmine: Is that okay with you, Bailey?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-035.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-035.jpg)

Bailey: (with a heavy New Jersey accent) Yeah, sure.  Well, I was workin' in this club in Long Island as an exotic dancer.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-039.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-039.jpg)

Rose: ...as a stripper...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-055.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-055.jpg)

Bailey: You say tomato, I say banana.  Sure.  Whatever...  It was a job and it paid for law school.  Columbia ain't cheap, ya know?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-006.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-006.jpg)

Miranda:  Wait... you were a law student at Columbia?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-036.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-036.jpg)

Bailey: You think I'd go to Harvard?  Honey, the tips in Long Island are good, but they ain't Harvard good.  But yeah, I was a student at Columbia and a workin' girl.  The Long Island gig was kind of a second summer job anyway.  My day gig was doing paralegal stuff for a government contracting firm in Uptown.  Uptown New York.  That's weird...  I ain't never been more than fifty miles outta Jersey before now.  Anyway, I guess I really shoulda started my story with my day gig.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-047.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-047.jpg)

Bailey: Like I said, I was workin' for this government contractor and they wanted me to get clearances so I could work with the classified stuff.  I'm very trustworthy, ya know?  So they start this screening process -- it's supposed to take like six months.  Anyway, one night I'm workin' at the club and these two guys walk in together.  Sharp dressers -- casual, but sharp.  And I peg 'em both for bein' Marines, Quantico grads.  It's in the eyes.  They had those hard Quanitico eyes.   Had Ductus Exemplo written all over 'em.  They were so out of place.  They ordered a drink each and never touched 'em.  Sat there for almost three hours and only really paying attention to my sets.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-050.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-050.jpg)

Bailey: I figure they were sent by the screening people to check me out.  You know, a little extra pocket money for a couple of jarheads.  They ain't supposed to do that, check you out with spies, but it happens.  It didn't bother me none.  They were good lookin' guys and it wasn't like I was gonna come out wearin' a hammer and sickle bikini singing Gosudarstvenny Gimn Rossiyskoy Federatsii.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-051.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-051.jpg)

Bailey: (musing)  Though that might make a good pole routine...  Hmmm...  Anyway, I got these Marines pegged, right?  So I do my routines and give them a bit of extra attention.  Can't hurt the security evaluation if they like me, right?  So they stay there 'till the end of my last set.  Neither one has touched their drinks.  Who doesn't touch a margarita sour over three hours?  A jarhead on the clock, that's who!  So, anyways, I get done with my shift and pack up my stuff for the night.  I head out and these two Marines are waiting for me at the taxi stand.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-017.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-017.jpg)

Ashleigh: Wow, I would have thought they'd be waiting by your car if they knew so much about you already.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-055.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-055.jpg)

Bailey: Car?  What kind of heathen drives a car in New York?  You really have spent too much time in California, Bayou-babe.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-023.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-023.jpg)

Ashleigh:  How did you... how do you know that I'm from Louisiana and California?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-057.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-057.jpg)

Bailey: It's a gift.  You've got a New Orleans gait and a forced Southern California girl accent.  Anyway... these guys are waiting for me at the taxi stand, like I said.  So I start flirting with them.  Out of nowhere this black sedan drives up and the Jarheads push me into it!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-042.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-042.jpg)

Jasmine: Oh my!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-059.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-059.jpg)

Bailey: Yeah, and that ain't the half of it!  There's some goons in the car -- they left the Jarheads behind -- and they blindfolded me and drove like a bat outta hell for five hours.  I figure we were heading mainly south.  They musta been doin' 90 MPH the whole way.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-046.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-046.jpg)

Rose: Hmm... five hours is a long time -- they could have taken you anywhere.  But if they were heading purely south, you probably ended up somewhere around Norfolk, Virginia?




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-055.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-055.jpg)

Bailey: Hey, you're good, Red!  I found out later that's exactly where they took me.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-062.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-062.jpg)

Bailey: I was suddenly a prisoner.  They took my clothes, my jewelry, my purse and gave me a hospital gown.  There was this logo everywhere: Neuralogicon.  The place felt like it was underground.  Way underground.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-063.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-063.jpg)

Bailey: A lot of what happened next was kind of a blur.  I think they operated on me... I can feel a scar or something on the back of my neck.  And then...  and then...  and then there were the tests...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-066.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-066.jpg)

Bailey: (sobbing) Every day they would hook me up to this chair.  And they would put images in my head!  Horrible, disgusting images!  And I would start having thoughts that I knew weren't my own.  I would get back to my cell and I couldn't even trust that my thoughts were my own any more!




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-043.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-043.jpg)

Jasmine: That's horrible!  But Bailey, you are safe now.  You got away!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-058.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-058.jpg)

Rose: Yes, you are safe with us here at the Pyramid.  But how did you get away?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-068.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-068.jpg)

Bailey: I'd been there... maybe two weeks?  It's hard to know.  And I was losing more and more of my will each day.  I knew I had to get out soon or my mind wouldn't be my own any more.  And I didn't want any more of those images to be pushed into my head.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-001.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-001.jpg)

Bailey: They were taking me out of the test lab.  I was exhausted -- I was always exhausted after a session -- so they didn't have me handcuffed.  They were bringing another girl in -- it was Miranda.  She's the only other test subject I'd seen before.  We exchanged a look -- a look that said everything in an instant.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-074.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-074.jpg)

Bailey:  It took all the willpower and strength that I had, but I kneed my guard in the groin and grabbed his taser.  Miranda fisted her hands together and whacked her guard in the jaw, hitting him square with the metal of her cuffs.  I tasered my guard -- but Miranda...  she killed hers.   Choked him to death with the short chain of her cuffs.  I heard his hyoid bone crack...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-029.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-029.jpg)

Miranda: It was all I could think of to do.  I hated that guard -- he did more than just guard me. 




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-077.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-077.jpg)

Bailey:  It was horrible.  But I understood her rage.  I got the handcuff key and access badges off my guard and uncuffed Miranda.  We ran for the elevator, because any second the alarms would go off -- we knew they were expecting Miranda to show up for her session.  The elevator took us 20 floors up to the ground level.  Alarms were going off as soon as the elevator doors opened.  We tasered five or six guards and made it out.  Miranda hot-wired one of the black sedans and we drove out of that place as fast as we could.  It was like a movie -- Miranda crashed through the security gate with the car and just kept on going.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-056.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-056.jpg)

Jasmine: So... our government was running these tests on you?  It's not out of the question, but that doesn't sit well with me.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-030.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-030.jpg)

Miranda: And it shouldn't, Jasmine.  From everything I could find out, Neuralogicon is not funded by the U.S. Government.  They model themselves to look like a government contractor, but they are totally private.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-038.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-038.jpg)

Rose: So how did you both end up here?  And why were you drugged, Bailey?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-041.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-041.jpg)

Jasmine: She said she was sedated, remember?  I'll bet Sindy is responsible for that.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-080.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-080.jpg)

Bailey: Yeah, sedated.  Tut gave me something because I was really freaked out.  There was a blonde woman with him.  I don't remember her name.  I had read about KingTut several years ago when your story was in the news, Rose.  We were driving -- not really anywhere, just away -- and all I could think of was that KingTut could help us like he did with Rose.  I had taken a couple of phones from the guards we'd tasered.  One of them had a web browser on it.  I found a number for KingTut and called him.  He and the blonde woman met us near Centerville.  He set us up with a different car and said he'd "take care of burning our trail."  Then he gave us directions, some clothes and sundries and told us to meet him here.  The next thing I knew I was lying on the ground surrounded by you three.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-012.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-012.jpg)

Ashleigh: Ladies, it's very late and I know you two are exhausted.  I say we should all get some sleep and then figure out how to put your lives back together in the morning.  Hopefully Sindy and Tut will be back by then.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-027.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-027.jpg)

Miranda: That's an excellent plan.  Let's all get some sleep.  I assume there are appropriate quarters for all of us?

The girls file back to the bedrooms leaving Ashleigh behind.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-015.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day50-015.jpg)

Ashleigh: (to herself) I figured you would like that idea Miranda.  It gives you more time to avoid talking about yourself.  I need to learn more about you... because I definitely don't trust you.

You've outdone yourself, Tut.

This installment is top-notch - very compelling. Your work with Bailey on this episode is especially good, the positioning of her head and the tears as she recounts her ordeal really draw you in. You've got a great eye for the way people move and converse, the panels flow seamlessly. You can tell you pour a lot of yourself into these.

I'm eagerly anticipating the next post, and how the story will evolve; Ashleigh and Miranda seem to be on a collision course at the moment (And could Ashleigh's legs be any more ravishing!?!?!? Those blue shorts seem tailor-made for her gams.).

Excellent.

Thanks everyone!  Miranda is such a beautiful, sultry model -- she's very easy to work with and I'm constantly surprised by her.  I'm pleased with these photos, but they don't do her justice -- she's even more stunning and lovely in person.



I meant to respond to this yesterday, but got distracted:

P.S.: By the way: congratulation to your new girl(s). I hope we will get one or two photo sets which will show body 1H and 2D side by side and compare their differences. That would be awesome.

I do want to do a side-by side comparison of the 2D and 1H, but I think I'll wait until after "Sixty Days..." is complete.  It turns out that a direct comparison isn't entirely fair since there have been a number of changes in Sinthetics manufacturing processes in the 18 months that separate my two doll bodies.  A 1H produced today is a bit different than a 1H produced in January 2011.  I want to make sure I fully understand these differences (running them by Matt & Bronwen) before posting a comparison.

Plus I only have one stand -- I need to build a second one so I can suspend them side-by-side.

DAY 52: BAILEY'S LBD

Bailey is still pretty freaked out -- she won't even go outside just to get some sun.  Looking for a way to cheer her up, Ashleigh went shopping and found a "perfect LBD for Bailey!"

Bailey loved it and decided to do a little fashion show at the Pyramid.

Note that I have left the stand visible in some of these photos.  This was intentional since the photos looked better with the stand in than they did with it cropped out.  Sometimes you just can't hide the darn thing.  :)

Also, I've been playing with Bailey's wig position.  I think she looks best with a more prominent forehead, but I may have overdone it in most of this pix.  The photo where she is looking up probably represents the ideal wig position for her.

BEHIND THE SCENES -- BAILEY'S LBD

I get a lot of questions in chat about how I do a shoot.  So I decided that while doing the "Bailey's LBD" shoot for Day 52, I'd get a few "behind-the-scenes" shots.  So consider this the forum version of Blu-Ray extra content.  :)

The thing I get asked the most is "what do you do for lighting?"  Most of the time, I use ambient lighting, which I often supplement with some "soft fills".  A soft fill is a light source that is meant to fill in areas of shadow without casting new shadows.  This is typically done by placing some form of diffusion material, like light cloth, between the fill light and the subject.  Conversely, a "hard fill" is a naked bulb that is used to remove shadows, but will easily cast more of its own.  Hard fills are normally used with colored light, not white light, so that you end up getting colored shadows.  Soft fills provide a great deal less light on the subject than hard fills and, because of the inverse square law (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inverse-square_law), need to be placed closer to the subject.

The soft fills I use are a couple of Daylight Fluorescent bulbs on stands using white parasols to diffuse the light.  They were pretty inexpensive.  I think I got the pair for under $50.  This set on Amazon.com is comparable: http://www.amazon.com/Lumenex-Studio-Photography-Umbrella-Continuous/dp/B004NPYMAM/ref=sr_1_114?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1343600357&sr=1-114&keywords=umbrella+diffuser

I also use a tripod.  This one, made by Targus, was about US$60 at Target. 

So here's a photo of the set with the lighting and tripod in place:
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_Day52-001.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_Day52-001.jpg)


You may notice that Bailey is holding up a White Balance Reference card.  I use this to make sure the colors are correct in my final photos.  You can find my white balance tutorial here: http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4016.msg45107#msg45107

People are also surprised that I don't PhotoShop out my stands, and yet they are rarely seen.  The trick is to set up the model and the camera in such a way that the stand is hidden by the model.  The result is that you almost never see my doll's feet.  This is sad, because they wear some very cute shoes.  :P

Here's a wider shot of the "checking my heel" shot that shows the bottom of the stand.  You can see how the rest of the stand has been hidden behind Bailey's leg and torso.

And yes, a Pyramid cat snuck into this set.  Here's Scooby, who usually isn't interested in doll shoots:

     Miranda and Bailey certainly spice things up around the Pyramid! These stories are definately top shelf! I still think you should sell the screen rights!  8)

     I will have to get that soft fill set from Amazon! This is a great set at a good price. I posted a message here (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=1920.msg48294#new) so as not to derail this thread. I commend you for the energy, talent, and dedication that you have put into these posts. It would take me days just to write the copy for a single post!

Great set as usual!
Being a bit of a snapper myself I can appreciate all the hard work that goes into these sets and seeing behind the scenes is most illuminating (pun intended  :laugh:)

Which leads to a question.
Being lazy I use the auto settings on the camera, could you let us all know which settings you use?
Does the white balance card work when using auto or is it only for manual settings?

Whichever you use  works very well, creating nicely lit subjects and Scooby the cat seems to approve.

Sweet shoots....I'm glad Bailey got a LBD too. Your right about the wig placment on Bailey's head. she does look best with a prominent forehad. just works better for the shape of her face.
Subtle but I think your right about the shot of her looking up has the best wig placement.

Miranda does have a special something about her.  Unlike Sindy, I was immediately able to get "living" photos out of Miranda -- and they are both Celeste heads.  Maybe that's because I finally "figured out" how to make a Celeste head work with Sindy...  but yeah, Miranda has it going on!

Since you like to do compositing work, you may want to search around a bit more on Amazon.  I saw, for example, a kit that adds a hard floor background lamp and a chroma-key green muslin backdrop with stands and a carrying case for $130. http://www.amazon.com/Lumenex-Studio-Photography-Background-Continuous/dp/B0050J8OB8/ref=sr_1_62?ie=UTF8&qid=1343689107&sr=8-62

And don't worry too much about derailing this thread.  It's my job to re-rail it once a day with a new set of photos.  :)

Thanks, L-I-P!  And no, my cats are well-behaved around the dolls.  They know they aren't human, but I guess they are human enough that they don't attempt to climb or claw them.



Being lazy I use the auto settings on the camera, could you let us all know which settings you use?
Does the white balance card work when using auto or is it only for manual settings?

I'm going to answer your questions in reverse order:

The white balance card will work in any shooting mode.  The point is to be able to tell your finishing software "This part of the picture is color neutral."  So the shooting mode (as long as it's in color and not sepia tone or something) won't matter.  WB Correction works best if you shoot in RAW, but will work admirably with JPEG format shots as well.

As far as shooting mode selected, it varies with what I want to control vs. what I want to let the camera control.  I normally use the "P" (Programmed exposure) mode, because I like having direct control of the ISO setting.  (I like to keep the ISO at 400 or lower if I can.)  In this mode, the camera decides the F-stop and shutter speed.  I let the camera do automatic White Balance (AWB) since I'm going to override it anyway and it doesn't really have an impact on RAW if you are using a reference card.  (It DOES have an impact on JPEG.  If you are shooting JPEG and want to use a WB reference, you are best off leaving the camera in AWB.)

The other setting that I pretty much let the camera do that will be over-ridden during post-processing is the exposure evaluation.  I normally set my camera to "Evaluative Metering".  If I don't like the exposure, I will alter it in Lightroom.  Again, shooting in RAW mode gives you an advantage here, since you are making the exposure adjustment against the raw CCD values, not the camera's interpretation of those values.  I tend to only mess with the overall exposure setting -- I don't touch the white/black/shadow/highlight faders and rarely touch the contrast fader.

Note that there are times when I need to control the aperture (F-stop/focal length) and/or the shutter timing.  In those cases I switch to one of the other manual modes that lets me change those settings.  I've not ever found the need to go to full-manual mode.

I'm by no means an expert at this stuff -- I'm still learning this digital photography stuff and would like to take a class or two sometime soon.  Perhaps something at one of the local art colleges.



Sweet shoots....I'm glad Bailey got a LBD too. Your right about the wig placment on Bailey's head. she does look best with a prominent forehad. just works better for the shape of her face.
Subtle but I think your right about the shot of her looking up has the best wig placement.

Thanks, Ceej!  I'm going to work with it a bit more, but there is definitely a "sweet spot" for Bailey that I need to nail down with her wig.

DAY 53: SINTHIA'S LBD

Sinthia and Tut have finally returned home.  When Sinthia realized that everyone has done an LBD set but her, she insisted on doing her own shoot in her favorite LBD.

another yummy LBD !!

a (lengthy) remark regarding whitebalance: as KingTut pointed out WB (White Balance) is not a major thing when you shoot in RAW, but it is when shooting in jpeg! Many digital cameras (especially digital SLRs) have a 'custom white balance' option you can use to get a more accurate color under different/difficult lighting conditions in your images. Often this is done by photographing a neutral color (piece of white paper) near your subject, under the lighting you're gonna use, select this picture in the menu and tell your camera to use this as reference what should be 'neutral'. On Canon you will need to switch your camera to the 'custom white balance' setting; this might be different for other brands, so have a look how to implement this in the manual. Be aware that different lightsources have different colors (= color temperature) so placing of the 'neutral color' (white paper) can be critical, especially in conditions with different light sources, for instance a combination of artificial and day light.
Title: Re: The "Sixty Days of Ashleigh and Sinthia" Project
Post by: KingTut on July 31, 2012, 08:54:59 AM
One MORE thought on white balance...

The white balance reading is only valid at the point of measurement -- where your neutral reference is positioned.  For outdoor, sunny day shoots, this is not an issue, but for indoor it's huge.  The reason is that the lighting conditions (and most importantly the lighting color temperature) varies, often dramatically, throughout the room.  So it's important that you choose a reference point that has the the color information you are most concerned about (normally the subject.)

In a lot of my photos, the coloring of the subject remains constant from set to set, but the color of the walls in the house will seem to vary, going from yellow-green to blue-green.  While there are different colors of green in my house, there are only three, not twenty!  Since I don't have lighting to wash the entire room in the same temperature of light, I concentrate my WB reading on the girls and accept whatever happens to the backgrounds.

This is really a battle with the inverse-square law in many ways, which should give you a lot of respect for the sun.  A55-watt fluorescent bulb can't light up my room evenly because of it.  Yet the sun, which is 93 million miles away and is subject to the same law, floods the outdoors with consistent bright light all the way to the horizon and beyond.

DAY 54: SINTHIA MEETS MIRANDA


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-003.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-003.jpg)

Miranda: Hey there...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-004.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-004.jpg)

Miranda: Sinthia?  Remember me from the other night in Centerville?  I'm Miranda.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-012.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-012.jpg)

Miranda: Lemonade and pizza?  That's not the most nutritious meal I've seen around here.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-015.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-015.jpg)

Sinthia: Hi Mandy. Yeah, and I'm not really interested in eating as it turns out.  I grabbed some cold pizza to pass the time, I guess.  Tut and his weird pizzas.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-018.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-018.jpg)

Sinthia: And yes, I remember you -- how could I not?  It was like a spy novel or something.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-023.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-023.jpg)

Sinthia: A clandestine meeting at night in the middle of nowhere and I'm supposed to bring my medical bag;  a car exchange with two strangers; and then a car chase where we have to ditch the exchanged car?  Who could forget a night like that?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-021.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-021.jpg)

Miranda:  I'm afraid we did put you and Tut to a lot of trouble.  May I sit down?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-025.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-025.jpg)

Sinthia: Go for it.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-027.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-027.jpg)

Sinthia: So what's your story, Mandy?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-033.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-033.jpg)

Miranda: That's twice you've called me that... I haven't been called Mandy in over 15 years.  It's nice to hear it again.






(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-037.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-037.jpg)

Sinthia: Do you mind me calling you "Mandy"?

Miranda: Not at all!  Like I said... it's good to hear it again.  It's familiar.  It reminds me of...   of...  family.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-045.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-045.jpg)

Miranda: But that doesn't answer your real question.  In recent months, my story isn't all that different from Bailey's -- except for the part about being a Long Island stripper.  Umm... what exactly are you doing?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-039.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-039.jpg)

Sinthia: Curse of the strapless dress -- it seems like I'm always having to adjust it.  Besides, "the girls" needed a bit of fresh air.  Never mind me, go on with your story.

Miranda: I'm... I was... a professor at NYU, teaching criminal law.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-047.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-047.jpg)

Sinthia: A professor?  I'll bet guys were crawling all over each other to be in your class!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-051.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-051.jpg)

Miranda: Well, yes... I suppose... MUST you do that?  It's very distracting!

Sinthia: Oh!  Sorry, Now that they've had their fresh air I'm just making sure everyone is back in their proper place.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-053.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-053.jpg)

Miranda: Anyway, I had a student in one of my classes who said his father was an active-duty NYC policeman.  He claimed he could arrange a ride-along on his father's beat.  It's been quite a while since I'd done a ride-along, and never in New York.  It sounded like a brilliant opportunity, so I agreed.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-061.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-061.jpg)

Sinthia: I take it his story about his father didn't stand up?





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-068.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-068.jpg)

Miranda: As you Yanks say, "his story didn't even have legs."




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-073.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-073.jpg)

Miranda: We'd agreed to meet after class in one of the student parking lots where his father was to pick me up for the ride-along.  I was excited and, I'll admit, my guard was down.  Before I knew what was happening, a black van had driven up and my student had pushed me through the side door.  I was immediately gagged, blindfolded and bound.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-074.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-074.jpg)

Sinthia: You must have been terrified!





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-077.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-077.jpg)

Miranda: It was horrific.  We drove for hours -- I have no idea how long.  One of them wanted to sedate me because I kept on struggling.  But another one told him that the doctor needed me to be awake and free of any sedatives when we got to "the plant."





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-080.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-080.jpg)

Miranda:  As soon as we got to our destination, they rushed me into a small operating room and sedated me.  (sobbing)   After that they started my sessions...





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-089.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-089.jpg)

Miranda: Sinthia, it was terrifying and horrific.  They made me see the most outrageously awful things -- in my head.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-091.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-091.jpg)

Miranda: They made me hear things coming from inside my head.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-092.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-092.jpg)

Sinthia: Oh, Mandy... I'm so sorry...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-096.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-096.jpg)

Miranda: I started having these urges... thoughts... 




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-101.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-101.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-105.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-105.jpg)

Miranda: They were trying to take over my mind...




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-107.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-107.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-108.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-108.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-112.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-112.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-121.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-121.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-118.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-118.jpg)

Miranda: Somehow they've wired up an implant into my brain!  They attached equipment to that port in my neck.  Bailey has one too, but I'm not sure she knows about it.




(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-124.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-124.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-126.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-126.jpg)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-131.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day54-131.jpg)

Hi Kingtut,

Sinthia has some troubles with her dress  ;D It's like her breast his trying to breathe in front of Miranda's beauty.

Great set and dialogues and beautiful pics

The dialogue is too serious for a Boobie throwdown...

My money would be on Miranda.

A very productive shoot, great story and photos.

Favourite ^....like the way you manageged to bring the legs together.
A great improvement to the stance, very coy.

Anyone else see Stacy718 in this face, there seems to be a resemblance there?

 :laugh:  I like that comment... I was thinking the same thing!
This is my first post, although I've been lurking since May.  I've been anxiously following the '60 days' project!
I bought a RD back in '98 and currently waiting on a Sinthetics doll.  (Been on the waiting list for a 2D since May.)

Thanks for making the waiting a little easier, KingTut!  Your work at the Pyramid is amazing and inspiring.  I may do a little photography myself.  Somewhere there are photos of 'Heather' or maybe 'Venus' (the names I gave my RD).  I think the forum was called RDOL and the gallery was called the Dollhouse.  I'll have to look it up again.

I'll admit, when I was doing my cropping and white balance adjustments for this set I was sorely tempted to jump into Photoshop and "heal" the seams. :)  Especially on the close-up shot where her hand is holding her thigh.  But the theme of "Sixty Days..." has been to let the dolls exhibit themselves as they really are, so I resisted.  I was seriously tempted though...

Thanks, Ray!  Bailey is harder to work with since my hands are too big to get at her eye pegs -- so I compensate by spending even more time with her hands and head. 

When Sebastian jumped into the shoot I reacted with a sharp "No!" -- then I realized he would add to it, so I started telling him it was okay.  I was able to catch his moment of indecision where he wasn't sure what he was supposed to do.  He's an extremely photogenic cat.  I don't have a single bad shot of him as an adult.  (He was a cute, but awkward-looking kitten who blossomed into a handsome adult.)

DAY 57: MIRANDA -- TOMB RAIDER

The entry for Day 57 is at the request of noquiexis.  I present Miranda (sporting brown eyes) as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider!


(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-004.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-004.jpg)

Oops... I'm afraid when I adjusted our heroine's eyes she was looking into mine -- 15 inches away -- so she's a bit cross-eyed here.  :(





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-007.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-007.jpg)

"Dontcha make my blue eyes... brown?"  :)  I changed out Miranda's lovely blue eyes for brown ones in order to better match the Lara Croft character.

One of Lara's classic poster stances.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-020.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-020.jpg)

This was an attempt to depict a classic moment from every Tomb Raider game: Lara running in one direction, but looking and shooting in another.





(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-026.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Day57-026.jpg)

KingTut,

     The "Tomb Raider" shoot was awesome! The pictures, props, and poses in the scenes are just perfect! Nicely done!

     Your "Queen of the Nile" shoot really shows off Miranda's beauty! Hmmm. I wonder where I have seen costume like that before ...

Best pictorial yet.

Silicone or not, any man would be hard pressed to look at this set of pictures and not feel some amount of affection for Miss Widow here.:laugh:

Great pics, Tut. I think the Celtic knot pattern on the lingerie lends itself perfectly to Ashleigh's red hair and fair skin.

Bailey's striptease was so cute and hot at the same time. She's a lovely bunny with her bunny ears !

Black widow is Incredible ! That lingerie is awesome. One of the best I've seen on a doll. Asheligh is always a stunning and cunning lady :)

Grenouille, it is good to see you back.  I hope your little holiday trip was enjoyable!

According to the manufacturer, the Black Widow is actually an Egyptian-themed bathing suit, invoking the name of Sekhmet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sekhmet).  But once I had it on Ashleigh, the spider reference was just too compelling, so I repurposed it as lingerie and gave it the new name.

I am sure that your work has inspired others to dust off their photography skills. You have offered ideas for the rest of us to interpret. Bravo!

Very well done your Majesty, King Tutt and all the girls , its been fab meeting them all, hearing there little and large tales.

Hopefully, now that this is concluded, you can take some time to just kick back and relax with the girls.

A truly remarkable achievement! My greatest respect to you, Tut. Fantastic pics and you are definitely gifted with words.

Between the lines you have made a statement in your project that the fun of playing with (love-)dolls goes far beyond having sex with them.  I think your project is in this respect of great importance to the general acceptance of our society of men having or being interested in erotic dolls.

You mentioned putting a link to UKLDF but I noticed that there was no link to TDF, which because of its size is of more importance when it comes to increasing the acceptance of men having dolls. Therefore I hope sincerely that TDF -staff will invite you to make a link to your fantastic project because it is an fantastic boost for the legitimacy of men playing with (love-)dolls.

I think it is in everyone’s interest that your project gets more publicity.

Enjoy your well deserved rest!

Included in your "60 Days" has been some of the best doll pictures I've ever seen.  I like the storytelling aspect too.  Thanks for the parts of it that were informative about how all the different parts of Sinthetics bodies look and how they can be posed.  Time to kick back, chill, and play some games!   8)

Congratulation Ô roi TUT !  :)

These 60 days have been a continuing pleasure and a delicious adventure for us to follow. Your concept and challenge was as crazy as original !

Firstly I enjoyed the incredible dolls and beauties coming from Sinthetics...Ashleigh and Sinthia were clearly a new step in terms of realism and quality. The mark of a perfectionist.
 
Then I adored the picture quality: You have indeed the talent and knowledge to make interesting pictures. It was great to see your dolls in details and to see what a silicon doll can do in terms of range of motion.

Your house, a clean and well decorated mansion, was an extraordinary and magnificient setting for these 60 days, it really played a role in this wonderful adventure.

The arrival of Miranda and bailey was unexpected but a real plus ! It was great to see these new ladies telling their stories. It was like watching a very interesting movie ! The stories were funny and interesting as well.

And I don't forget your witty and cute teddybabes and the sweet cats who are ADORABLE !

Thanks for all. I'm eager to see more of these beautiful dolls and all

Houra to the king !

Thanks to everyone for your very kind responses.  This has been a very personal effort and challenge with a very public face.  The public aspect helped make me accountable for seeing it through.  So in a very real way, you all have been a part of this.  Your encouragement, comments and criticisms have contributed to the work that is here and to my ability to see it through to the end.  There's more to it, and I'll talk about that tonight in an epilogue to the series.

There are a few things I need to respond to...


wow 60 days over allready, well done tut it has been fun! (for me at least, a stress for you i'm guessing)
It has been fun for me -- and stressful.  But no one in their right mind takes on a commitment of this enormity with sixty daily deadlines in their "spare time" and expects it to be stress-free.  The last thirty days were more stressful because I couldn't maintain a backlog of material as I had during the first thirty.  But it's all been worth it.  And I have  a lot of pix that I can be proud of to show for it.


Truely an epic achievement! Not to be matched any time soon!

Your hard work and artistry has given the members of this forum a reason to log in with anticipation for two months straight. No one else has tried so hard to be the life of the party.

This was an unexpected side-effect that first got voiced over at the UK forum -- the fact that people were running to the forums each morning as part of their daily routine, specifically to see what was going on with "Sixty Days..."  It was a very pleasant surprise and was also rather sobering -- I had an audience who was committed in their own way to this project.

And "Life of the Party"?  :)  Yeah, I guess that's kind of how it was.  I don't know that I was trying for that, but I did realize that some social responsibility came with what I was doing.  So attending chat as often as I could became a must.  Chat is never a chore, but it did have the overtones of obligation.

I think it's important to note that there are folks who work just as hard around here to keep things running smoothly and who've been at it a lot longer than sixty days.  Until very recently, I know Z-Dr, for example, has been ever-vigilant to keep this place as spam free as possilbe.  (Take a look here: http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?action=stats  Z has recorded over a HALF-YEAR of man hours over the past three years keeping things running smoothly.)



Congrats TuT and thanks for all the work you put in the last 60 days. I have and I know others on here have enjoyed the last 60 days. Thanks.                              GG
Hey, GG... I think I owe you a return PM...




It will seem very quite here now though, I am sure you have more adventures planned for the girls, you have a lot of fans to please now.
The girls will be making their appearances, just not with daily regularity!  There are a few different story lines either started or continued during "Sixty Days..." that will be expanded in the coming months.




Between the lines you have made a statement in your project that the fun of playing with (love-)dolls goes far beyond having sex with them.  I think your project is in this respect of great importance to the general acceptance of our society of men having or being interested in erotic dolls.
Thanks, Koen.  That was one of my goals.  My girls are photo mannequins / household decorations.  (Heck, the Teddy-Babes are infibulated (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infibulation)!)  They are mutable art objects whose images, I believe, need to be shared to be fully enjoyed.



You mentioned putting a link to UKLDF but I noticed that there was no link to TDF, which because of its size is of more importance when it comes to increasing the acceptance of men having dolls. Therefore I hope sincerely that TDF -staff will invite you to make a link to your fantastic project because it is an fantastic boost for the legitimacy of men playing with (love-)dolls.

I think it is in everyone’s interest that your project gets more publicity.
Most people aren't aware of it, and I'm going to keep this information quite brief, but I did start a thread over at TDF in their Eye Candy section (the equivalent of ODC's Art Gallery) that met every requirement of TDF Rule 7d right after Day 2 was posted.  The post was quarantined within minutes and was later removed.  It turns out that even showing a photo of a Sinthetics doll in public (non-member) areas of the site is not allowed.  And linking to ODC to display that doll is anathema.  (Something that UKLDF took in stride -- even welcomed.)  I was informed that both Sinthetics and ODC are "sworn enemies" of TDF, if you can believe that nonsense.  And yes those quote marks are there for a reason -- it's the exact wording I received twice within a single piece of mail.  I was told that I could post censored versions of "Sixty Days..." at TDF in the members-only areas, but would be required to re-post everything there and that all photos would have to be sourced from TDF galleries.

Those are not conditions I was willing to accept.  I was already spending 5 hours or more a day presenting this to audiences that appreciated the work -- I had no desire to spend another 1 or more hours each day working in a Gulag where any and every post is subject to censorship and removal.  (Many of the posts in Sixty Days, starting with Day 6 (http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4049.msg45939#msg45939), potentially violate TDF policies.)  So TDF's membership and non-member readership has missed out on an arguably newsworthy -- if not historic -- thread because of the whims of the site's owners.




Time to kick back, chill, and play some games!   8)
I've got "Lollipop Chainsaw" sitting in the tray of my Xbox in anticipation. :)




Your house, a clean and well decorated mansion, was an extraordinary and magnificient setting for these 60 days, it really played a role in this wonderful adventure.
Merci, mon bon ami!  I'd not considered it before, but "The Pyramid" is as much a character in the "Sixty Days..." saga as anyone else.  Thank you for your unique and insightful observations.

Congratulations on making it interesting for the full 60 days, KingTut!  After witnessing your awesome photographic testimonial, anyone can see that Sinthetics makes the best doll on the market, hands down!  Thanks for reaffirming my decision to wait 'patiently' on the waiting list for my chance to be 'Rewarded -- a Thousand-fold.'
 
I mentioned earlier that I bought a RealDoll in 1998.  I was a member of the Realdoll Owners And Lovers forum.  Back in the days before quality digital cameras, the only way I could get pictures into the gallery (covertly, anyway) was to copy a still from videotape.  My doll was the first one named 'Heather' and I called her 'Venus' when she wore the red wig.  I can't find anything but the 'Doll Matrix' with a single picture of 'Heather' from username 'Unknown'.  Do you have any idea where else the pictures may be?  From what I was able to find out so far, the forum was removed from the original server after Dr. Goldfoot lost interest.

Again, you have inspired me to get some quality pics once my doll arrives.  I decided right from the start that I wanted multiple heads, but I don't know if I'll have the drive to do an interactive photo set with dialogue and such...  Would love to have an Ashleigh look-alike, by the way.  She's my favorite of your collection!

I know I'm late, KT  ::)

I had your report somewhat lost sight. Especially the end of your marathon.
Of course also due to the arrival of my own Sinthetics.

In short:
only now since I self own such a beauty - and have worked for the first photos - I realized what you have done here.
I do not understand all the lyrics and do not have time to translate everything. But your beautiful pictures say enough.

An incredible performance from you. You have my highest respect!   :)

Hey all!  I'm still alive (barely) and kicking.  The girls are all doing wonderful, though lately Bailey and Sinthia are complaining that they don't get as much out-of-the-closet time as Ash and Miranda.

I haven't done any photos of the gals since the last set that was posted here -- not even for Halloween, as I'd intended.  :(  Work has become very demanding and I'm also finishing up the research for my photo-novel.  So it hasn't been boring here at the Pyramid - quite the opposite.

I do plan on doing some Christmas photos after Thanksgiving, and I do have plans to continue the thread of Miranda and Bailey's escape, so there are photos coming -- just not every day for some ridiculous period of time. 

On the novel front, I want to let everyone know that I'm currently working with Koen to get a Scoonim Doll (http://www.scoonimdolls.com/home-gb.html?#sub-top) to play one of the lead roles in the novel.  The expressiveness of the Scoonims is incredible and will go a long way for what I want to do.  I'll share some photos of her when she gets here as well.

I thought I heard the loud creaks of hinges from your sarcophagus, KingTut arises after a refreshing rest :)

Good to see you around , but wheres the girls ?

I glad to hear from you. We thought those girls were never going to let you come up for air.

I look forward to hearing more about your photo-novel, and of course see the girls again.

Tastefully done.I like it when photos are seductive without always revealing too much.
Tut, I want to know how you got the standing photos.Did you use a stand and then digitally remove it?

Thanks, Blasters.

With the exception of some of Snuggle's pix, I did not digitally remove stands from any of the photos in the "Sixty Days..." series.  And in many of the photos the stand is in plain view, though you might not notice it at first!  Day 2 has a few obvious stands showing and if you look closely, you'll find stands peeking out throughout the series.

For the most part, any standing shot involved a stand and I made creative use of angles to hide the stand behind the doll.  This is why you almost never see feet in my standing photos -- it breaks the illusion to see the base of the stand and there was no time with my insane shooting/posting schedule to remove stand bases using PhotoShop.

For shots where the doll is seated, they are doing that on their own.  It takes some careful posing, balance, and a lot of patience, but you can get some great sitting postures out of these dolls without any aids at all.  I think my favorite sitting shots are those of Sinthia sitting on the edge of the bed in her blue nightgown at the beginning of the "Captain Sinnamon Bunz" saga.  She's almost standing in those photos and I was able to get a number of poses out of her from all sorts of angles because she was doing it on her own.

Thanks, Fuzzy!  It wasn't the most professional job considering the timetable, but overall, I'm extremely happy with how the whole series turned out.  And it didn't hurt having amazing models to work with.


Tuttster still lurks around...

I just gotta laugh.  It's been over a month since my last logon -- and I see this thread at the top of the Art Gallery.  What a pleasant surprise!

I haven't had much time for doll photography.  The girls (all six of them -- Ashleigh, Sindy, Miranda, Bailey, Rose & Jasmine) are getting pretty grouchy about it, too.  Work has been more demanding and I have to devote a fair amount of my "free time" to researching my photo/graphic novel.  (Heck, my Christmas tree almost made it into April this year -- almost.)

Speaking of the novel, Koen is doing amazing things with Calernae, my new Scoonim that is currently in production.  I saw pix this morning of her (that I can't share, sorry.)  She's fully cast and everything is working correctly.  She still needs to be blushed and she's currently bald.  But she's looking amazing.  She's like a miniature Sinthetics 2D, only a bit stronger in the biceps.  She looks a lot like Stellai, but she's not a duplicate.  She'll be a classic Celtic redhead and I can't wait to meet her -- and introduce her to you all.

I'm sure Koen will be posting pix of her soon before sending her my way.  Calernae is set to be the narrative and primary character in the novel -- and her expressive face will be a big part of it.  Her face is fully poseable -- even more expressive than Stellai -- and she has poseable breasts!  I also opted for fully poseable wrists (they can go side-to-side as well as up/down) and poseable big toes.  As you might expect, she's a light-skinned redhead with green eyes.  (Hey, I know what I like.)

I'm rather excited about her -- and I think Ashleigh is a bit jealous, which, of course, she shouldn't be.  But I think I said out loud once that she'll be "something of a miniature Ashleigh" and my green-eyed girl turned into a bit of a green-eyed monster.

Somehow I knew that bumping that thread (or opening the sarcophagus) would be a good thing.  I hope the newcomers will migrate to view the awesomeness as well.

TUT I can't wait for more pics, i hope you get time sometime soon. Your Scoonim sounds like she will be so much fun to take pics of, maybe you can do a set with your Ashleigh and your Scoonim (Maybe you can create something like an Ashleigh and Mini-Ashleigh set)
I also can't wait to finally get my 2D... so looking forward to her!

Sounds like a resounding rattle of the sarcophagus has woken you up !
Thought you had disappeared like so many others who come here and then go, never to be heard from again.
(well except when they want to sell their dolls on )

So now its Scoomins being added to your doll collection, shall look forward to her introduction here. :)

Thanks to all for making me feel loved and missed.  Well, at least missed.   :P

I'm not sure "back" is appropriate since I would contend I never left.  My pattern is to appear for a while and then disappear for a while.  Some appears are longer than others -- some disappears are longer.  I prefer to think of them as "hiatuses of indeterminate length."

And while I would normally avoid bumping an old thread, this one represents something special and deserves the occasional bump -- especially if it's someone else doing the bumping.  :)  So thanks, Fuzzy!  And congrats on your 2D!  I can't wait to see what you think of her.

I think a pose-down shoot will be in order at some point between Calernae and Ashleigh.  Dueling bikinis anyone?

(From the post "What happened on August 13, 2012?")

Well, on August 13th, 2012, I made one of my first posts on ODC after lurking since May.  I was compelled to congratulate KingTut on completing his "60 Days" featuring his new Sinthetics, Ashleigh and Sinthia.  I wonder if the traffic was due to a lot of people still following his project...

That thread is here for anyone interested in checking it out (again)...
http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4049.msg45701#msg45701

 :whistle:  Sheesh!  I could've sworn I was the one who bumped that thread.   :P

That's OK, KingTut.  I double-checked and saw that I put my reference to your posts in another thread based on JohnConnor's query.

My Sinthetics 2D Alicia is soon to be on her way home also.
