Dolls and Apologies

I am so sorry to all my fellow doll enthusiasts that I have not posted in quite a long time. I have been dealing with my own personal life stuff, and blogging hasn’t been high on the priority list. Dolls, of course, still are high up there and they are still involved in my everyday life.

Unfortunately, I do have some sad news: I have left American Girl at Indigo. I could no longer handle the almost 2 hour commute every day. I am going to be working at the Chapters Langley location starting late December. No, there is no American Girl department there, but they have Wellie Wishers in the Kid’s department so I will still have some dolly friends hanging around. LoL.

Before my departure from AG in Vancouver I had the great chance to train new Doll Stylists for the salon. They will be there ready to style your doll’s hair this holiday season and beyond!

In other news, I decided I wanted a curvy barbie for Christmas. I specifically want Doll 48, Fashionistas Daisy Pop. She really makes me think of the 90’s:

I love that Barbie has finally gotten with the times and created dolls with different body types. What do you think?

Working on an American Girl Commercial Shoot!

2016-08-31-14-08-13

I had a very special experience recently, and I have been super busy and quite exhausted so haven’t gotten around to writing about it until now.

I was asked to work as a ‘doll stylist’ on a commercial shoot for American Girl and Wellie Wishers dolls. I had to stay on set for almost 14 hours each day, making sure that the dolls that were featured in the commercial looked beautiful.

I had to ensure that their hair and clothes were looking wonderful for the camera. It was a very cool experience! The commercials will probably not be on the air until 2017. I will let you know if I get any more information on where to watch the commercials when they are released!

After speaking with some other people on set, I found out I could work on Barbie, Monster High, Cabbage Patch, and other commercials that require doll styling. I really think that would be a great job! Have you ever worked on a commercial set? What did you enjoy most about it?

Melody, Willa and New Tiny Cuties!

Melody arrived in Indigo American Girl Stores very recently and she has been well received! People love her message of freedom and equality.

 

In other news, I gave in and ended up bringing home Willa of the Wellie Wishers not too long ago. I’ve been using AG clothes cinched at the waist with elastic bands to fit her, since it isn’t in my budget to buy WW clothes right now!

And finally…why must my place of work keep baiting me with super cute mini dolls and accessories? Look at these new LORI dolls! All the clothes will fit Lottie dolls as well. I want one! What do you think of these little cuties?

 

Wellie Wishers, Melody is Coming…and more!

So, as we all know, new historical character Melody Ellison is coming to American Girl stores in late August. We received some new Melody books at the AG Van store recently which got me hyped up!

Also, in big, fun doll news, Wellie Wishers are now available in Canada at most Indigo stores!

I would love to add one of these little cuties to my collection! What do you think? Who is your favorite?
