Blue Parasol

I need to get back to blogging about my models. "Blue Parasol" was not on my "must have" list at first, until I started seeing pictures of her on the doll boards. It was then that I realized she would be a great Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe model for the movie costumes that I like to recreate in miniature. It took me a while to find her, but she was worth it. She is one of my favorites, I love her.

My only issue with "Blue Parasol" is though she is gorgeous in person, she is one of my least photogenic dolls. For some reason, her eyes are very shadowed in some of her photos. I'm not the best doll photographer out there. I would rather spend my time sewing doll clothes than photographing them. I wonder if it is because her hair is so light and my camera doesn't like that there isn't much contrast on her face. I don't have this problem with my brunette dolls.
