    CREATIVE Photography of My Favorite Figs

    Hey friends! I love looking at Star Wars toy photography on Pinterest and it really made me want to create my own. I do not have a whole lot of equipment, or special effects gear like mini explosion thing-ys (wow, I’m so professional), but I try anyway. After my Rex Photoshoot, I was pleased with how I was able to photograph action figures with just my super helpful sister and some free editing software (PhotoScape X)… oh and a camera. ūüėČ Recently we have been buying a few Star Wars Black Series figs, and I really wanted to have some fun photographing them. Today I’m going to share them with…

    Why You Should Invest in a Barbie Made to Move Doll

    Hello awesome readers! Today’s post is not sponsored, just my general opinion. Today’s topic is Barbie Made to Move dolls. I hope you enjoy the photos of all of our Made to Move Barbies. This is Barbie.¬†My friend had zero barbies but when she came over to my house and started experimenting with ours, she ended up asking for a Made to Move doll for her Birthday. This is Jonica. These dolls can move nearly identically to human beings (besides fingers and toes), maybe even more so in some areas. They have movement at the head, upper arm, elbow, wrist, bust, leg, thigh, knee, and ankle. This is Naomi. They…

    A DN ANNOUNCEMENT! *IMPORTANT*

    Hello, my friends! Today I want to discuss the future of Doll Notebook with you all because I know I have not been keeping up with my posting schedule. If you would, please take the time to read through. First, I would like to apologize for slacking off. Lately, I have felt more inspired to post things on my personal blog Treasured Script. This is probably somewhat because it is newer and has a larger range of topics to explore, but also because it is legitimately easier for me to construct posts there. I tend to just randomly start to write for my personal blog and then add gifs or…

    It’s “Captain,” Sir. Photoshoot

    Hello There! Today I am excited to share a photoshoot that I am immensely proud of. The photos came out really excellent. This photoshoot features one of my favorite Black Series figs and Star Wars characters, Captain Rex.¬† Shoutout to my sis for helping me achieve some of the effects! My sister and I looked for interesting areas to photograph Rex in. We found this cool mossy ground area to snap a pic. The morning sun kept moving, but I was able to use it well, thankfully. The best helmet maybe in the entire galaxy. Captain Rex carries 2 DC-17 pistols and marks his own droid kills on his armor.…

    Jewel’s Guide to Making a Photo Story

    Hello, doll lovers! I haven’t really been able to go outside¬†lately¬†because my allergies are really bad, but today I thought it would be fun to show you the elements I use when making a doll photo story!

I strongly encourage exploring the personalities of all your dolls, and a great way to do that is through a…
