While other bloggers are reporting hard and strong on our community (thank youhow else would we keep up on our world?!), and a couple of them still haven’t a clue about writing a cohesive blog with a distinctive point-of-view, or copying another’s blog style – ahem, ahem…you know who you are) – I’ve been busy with the big lens…and boy, have I had some frippin’ fun! So – this is about the images…enjoy the eye candy…and enjoy Kingdom Doll’s Brunel – what a fine model she is!!!

6 Comments on “May Photo Frippery

  1. Such crisp, exquisite photographs, Tom. I love the reverse print on Madison, but somehow had missed Belle de Jour. It evokes fond memories of Deneuve’s perfect beauty. And Der Kommissar is truly amazing when the photo is enlarged so that even the components of the changéant taffeta are visible. Super pictures, beautiful designs!

  2. They’re all gorgeous creations…. but Der Kommissar is truly unique and my favorite of the group.

  3. I just love beautifully executed, retro-inspired daywear, and yours is very fine. I love what you did for the Kingdom dolls. And how great are contrasting collar-and-cuff looks? Pure Catherine Deneuve!

    You know, I have become MUCH more aware of photography on doll blogs because of your critiques here on Tommydoll; my eye has become fussy, and looks for flaws and finds it harder to forgive them. (Not the flaws themselves of the dolls that are photographed, but the flaws introduced or clumsily magnified through inadequate photography.)

    Your efforts really highlight the possibilities of showing truly beautiful doll fashion, and have elevated my taste in this regard. Your blog is like walking into an exclusive virtual high-fashion magazine for dolls. Photographed in a doll Atelier.

    Now I’ll go back to watching my Dark Shadows marathon (original series).

    • Oh I love Dark Shadows! And thank you! Remember…dolls do NOT have armpits…watch for that, and notice how often even top photographers do it…a shame, really…

My blog is satire, but your thoughts are welcome!
