I hope you are having a good one!
Yesterday (After I spent most of the morning cleaning my room, of course) I dressed all of my dolls in Christmassy (Or wintery, I only have so many red doll pieces.) attire. I was going to post about it last night, but didn’t get a chance.
So first of all I undressed all the dolls thinking random thoughts like “I thought this was Abby, why am I doing Joy?” “How did I get so many dolls?” “Where is Mckenna? And Hope, and Faith, and…Oh, I forgot to get that shelf of dolls.” Etc. Then I put the clothes away. Then I picked out sixteen Christmassy or winter outfits. (Actually I counted first. How did I get so many dolls?) Then I laid them out and dressed one doll at a time, picking an outfit for the doll as I dressed it.
And now here they are.
First of all, here is all of the dolls along one of the purple walls in my room. (We repainted last summer, and I love the walls being purple.)
As you can see, not all of the dolls are in red or green. I only have so many pieces of red and green doll clothing.
Now here are pictures of each doll next to my mini Christmas tree. It’s blue, so not all of the outfits match, but whatever. The dolls are in no specific order, just the order the computer chose.
Here is Riley. I love the red of her hair against the outfit. (And the tree, and the wall, and the floor, you get it.)
This is Olivia. She is a doll I randomly got at the thrift store one day. I had a bunch of dolls I was going to give away, but that might not happen. Her dress came on an also thrift store doll, but it’s perfect for Christmas.
Mia’s outfit is kind of random, and I’m not sure I like it, but it’s okay. She’s wearing a tree skirt from the dollar store I bought a few years ago. It looked bad the first year, (It kept falling down, and there are probably pictures you could find of Mckenna in her underwear,) but I finally got it to stay, and it doesn’t look bad now.
Mckenna refused to wear a skirt, or really anything nice, but she agreed to wear the green shrug. She wouldn’t change into matching shoes, insisting that it was Christmas and she should be allowed to wear comfortable shoes.
In person Maria’s shirt and skirt and shoes match, but not in pictures I guess. And her shirt looks a lot more like pajamas than I would like. It’s festive at least…
Ooh, I love this picture. Nothing about Lea is Christmassy, but she looks nice.
The dress Kaitlyn is wearing I made a long time ago. I don’t like it as much as I used to, but the fabric is perfect for Christmas.
Joy isn’t looking at the camera, but I love this one all the same. She kind of looks like a dancer, which she’s not, she’s a writer, but it looks nice all the same.
Ha! I knew this dress would be useful for something someday. Jenny doesn’t care if she looks old fashioned.
And, Hope is wearing rain boots. Why? It snowed here! (For the first time I can remember we got a white Christmas!!!)
I love this one. Grace is all blue. Even her earrings are blue, though you can’t see them. And her shoes match the hat, which sparkles everywhere, and the sweater.
Callie! I love Callie. For Christmas, my little cousin received a doll from our Grandparents. Callie. My Grandma had asked advice from me on which one to get, and I told her that as far as off brand dolls go, I love the Journey Girls. So now my cousin has Callie too!
Kierra wanted to be in a picture with her sister. Her outfit doesn’t match at all, but she insisted on wearing the leggings so she “wouldn’t be cold.” I don’t know why she can’t wear shoes, but no shoes for Kierra.
I finally have given up on Faith being older than the rest. She doesn’t look like it, and none of my doll clothes make her look older.
For Eileen’s outfit, it was the same as mine yesterday. Last year I made myself a red and green plaid skirt, and a doll one to match. Since Eileen is my mini me, she wore it, though the proportions are better on mine. Her outfit is mostly the same, except I had a black turtleneck, a necklace, and headband (Which was actually a necklace, and kept falling down, but was otherwise cool.)
And now Abby. Normally I don’t like Abby’s outfits or pictures very much, but I like this one a lot.
So there are my dolls in their Christmas outfits this year. I hope you enjoyed.
