“Plastics” Photo

8 Jun

 Today I bring you another photo from my lovely husband Travis.
He is doing a wonderful photography project, photographing various “Nerdy Things”, and this particular photo featured some of my dolls! He seems to very much like the Kurhns. Last time he wanted to photograph inanimate plastic humans, he also picked a Kurhn as well.
Elsa makes an appearance as well there in the background though!
I thought the photo came out lovely, so I thought I would share it.

More of his photography work is found here, and he also has a blog.

Elsa! Disney’s Frozen

18 Oct

After a very long and drawn out battle with UPS who lost my package, I have finally received my Disney Store order! This is the Disney Store exclusive Elsa doll, which as usual is worlds better and more movie accurate than Mattels version of the character.

I am SO EXCITED for Frozen, you have no idea. The new trailer looks amazing and I cannot wait for this to hit theaters next month. Im even more excited because of all the controversy buzzing about it, because I love me some good controversy. If you aren’t aware, people are angry that the characters are white, that the characters are blond (kind of? Their original hair colour has been changed by ice magic, but okay), that the characters look similar to the Tangled movie (because Disneys never done that before) and that the story, which is said to be based on The Snow Queen, has nothing to do with the Snow Queen at all except that it… has a Snow Queen in it.

Oh yes, discussing this movie will be fun.
Anyways, I absolutely love Elsas character design. So I ordered the Elsa doll and here she is!

Shes completely regal looking, and very icey. Her dress is gorgeous, all glittery and translucent. My only real issue with the dress is how stiff the fabric is… it dosnt flow very well, and this is kind of my reason for not getting the Anna doll as well. Her dress looked way too stiff and rigid. Elsas is better, but its still not nearly as full as I would like it to be and does not look nearly as good as Meridas dress for example.
That said, its still a great outfit and I really love that its elegant without being absurdly provocative. Elsas a classy lady 😉

No stand, so I have to display her sitting, which is not really how Id like to display her since Disney Store dolls sit really awkwardly with their legs splaying out. But Ill probably get a stand for her eventually.

Whats probably the best thing about this doll for me is the awesome hairstyle. Its wonderfully to look just like the movie, and its a very unique style that you wouldn’t probably see anywhere else. The product in the hair holds it in place and you can really get the feel that her hair has been frozen by ice magic.
The other thing is her pale pale skin tone. Shes exceptionally pale. with almost a purple hue, and it is very eerie looking. You can really buy that this character has been overtaken by ice magics and it looks fantastic.

All in all I really love this Elsa doll, and will probably get Anna too sometime down the line.
