New Video: Isabel and Lea React to Blaire Wilson!

Hey, marshmallows! I’m so excited to say that I have a new video up on my YouTube channel!

I had a ton of fun making this, and I hope you enjoy it too (and maybe even LOL a few times!) Isabel and Lea were super happy to be in the spotlight this post, and they can’t wait to share their reactions on the 2019 Girl of the Year (GOTY) Blaire Wilson!

Thanks for watching, and don’t forget to subscribe!

PS This is my first time using the new editor, and I actually don’t mind it that much! The only thing I really don’t like is how whenever I try to put tags, it is super annoying and crashes with errors! However, it makes it a lot easier to embed YouTube videos, and the formatting looks cleaner so far. Now to see how it reacts to my ending copy + paste, so sorry if the Can’t Get Enough of AGW? section is a bit off!

DIY No-Sew Dolloween StarWars Costume!

Hello, Marshmallows!

 

 

tenor1

 

Halloween is right around the corner! That’s crazy. I literally only have one piece of my costume ready, and that’s still shipping. TELL THAT UNICORN HEADBAND TO HURRY UP. Well, not only does Halloween mean getting your costume ready, but it also mean’s getting your dolls’ costume ready! And we’re here to help with that, so enjoy this tutorial!

For this craft, you will need:

  • A thin wooden dowel
  • Black duct tape
  • Sharpie
  • Your doll
  • Blue duct tape, red duct tape, etc.
  • A brown or black infant shirt (12 or 11 months)
  • Scissors
  • Doll boots
  • Printer (doesn’t have to be colored)
  • Black embroidery floss
  • Tape

The Lightsaber:

Step 1: Mark where you want to cut your dowel.

IMG_1624.JPG

Step 2: Snap your dowel, using your mark as a guideline. Don’t worry about making the edge look neat; we’ll be covering that up in the next step.

IMG_1628.JPG

Step 3: Now, cover the uneven end of the dowel with black duct tape. This will be your handle.

IMG_1629.JPG

Step 4: Next, color the uncovered part of the dowel red (for the Dark Side) or green, blue, or purple (for the Light Side).

IMG_1630.JPG

Step 5: Cut small pieces of colorful duct tape and stick it on your “handle” for buttons. You don’t need a terrible amount of these. Just an on/off switch can do it’s justice.

And there’s your lightsaber!

AMERICAN GIRL W-2

The Robe:

IMG_1631.JPG

Step 1: Get your infant tee shirt out. Use brown for a Jedi and black for Darth Vader. Mine is from Garanamals, which is available at Walmart or Amazon.

IMG_1632

Step 2: Slip it on your doll and pin where it’s needed.

If you are making a Jedi, then you’re done! But if you’re making Darth Vader, carry on to the next step…

AMERICAN GIRL W-2

IMG_1634.JPG

 

Step 1: Print out a picture of Darth Vader. Make sure to size it down in a Word program before printing so it fits your doll’s head. (I printed a coloring sheet because I didn’t want to waste ink.)

IMG_1635.JPG

Step 2: Now, cut it out. If you colored it, make sure to layer a few pieces of paper on the back so it doesn’t bleed on your doll’s face.

IMG_1636.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Make sure it fits on your doll’s face before continuing to any of the next steps.

IMG_1637.JPG

Step 4: Punch two holes on the sides of your mask.

IMG_1638.JPG

Step 5: Wrap a piece of embroidery thread (or, if you don’t have embroidery thread, you can use floss). Now, cut at the very end.

IMG_1639.JPG

Step 6: Measure your embroidery floss. If you are doing this to multiple dolls, make sure to measure each one, because the hairstyle may vary the size. Now, cut your floss a little more than three quarters. So, because mine was about 11 inches, I cut it at 9.

IMG_1640.JPG

Step 7: Place two strips of tape on each hole. Make sure you taped in the front.

IMG_1641.JPG

Step 8: Put the embroidery floss in the back of the taped holes. I know that doesn’t’t really make sense, but if you look at the picture you’ll get it.

IMG_1642

Step 9: Just slip it on your doll, and you’re done!

50 Followers Q&A + NTTMN VOTING! + An Announcement

Hello everybody! Thanks everybody who entered the Q and A! Let’s get started!

The questions will be in bold.

Rachel’s Questions

How long have you been blogging?

Well, I started last December, so about 10 months! 😮 That’s crazy!
Izzy, what’s your fave color?

Izzy: Pink! Purple and teal are a close second. (Hence my color!)
Where do you see yourself in 10 months?

Hmm, I’m not sure! I would be almost 11, so probably…hmm…editing my novel?
What’s your favorite candy?

TWIX TWIX TWIX

EnniMorgan’s Questions

How high do you rate exit signs?

ummm…. 10?
Do you like plane rides?

I love plane rides! I’ve only been on an airplane twice, though. It’s really cool to look out the window and see clouds!
Movie theater or movie at home?

I like watching movies at the theater, but watching movies at home is fun because you can make fun of it/be loud/pause.
If you could get any doll in AG existence which would it be?

Either Nikki or Molly. I really like how Nikki trains service dogs and she’s the GOTY of my birth year!
Who’s your favorite doll?

Out of the ones I have? Don’t tell the other dolls, but probably Lexi or Z…

Izzy: Hey!

AG’s In Alaska’s Questions

I want to know about how you got into AG and the story of your first doll.

When I was 5 or 6, I met my best friend (we’ll call her Kate) who had like, 7 AG Dolls. I really, really, wanted a doll of my own! So, Kate let me borrow her AG Catalogue and I was hooked. I really wanted Caroline (there’s a funny story about how I thought Marie Grace’s crinoline was for Caroline and I was so confused why it was on Marie Grace’s page!) so for Christmas, I asked for an AG doll! My parents gave me an Our Generation Doll (her name was Lily Anna) who looked like Caroline, and I loved her. Then, I saved up for Izzy! I don’t have Lily Anna anymore, but I’ll remember her as my first doll.

My dolls and flowers!

Z: I love taking pictures of the iconic landmarks back in Seattle!

Z: No, I haven’t heard of those! 

Hannah’s Questions

Z’ why do you like taking pictures?

Z: I love being able to capture the moment to be able to look back at it later!
Emmie why did you start a blog?

I had been reading Lissie’s blog for a while, when I finally asked my parents to help me set up a blog! I really wanted a place to share my writing and photography, so I made myself a Blogger Blog! But, it had personal information on it, so my parents freaked out and made me delete it. So, I started a new one! (Did you know AGW was originally on Blogger?)  Then, my dad researched better blogging platforms and fond WordPress!

Z the Tree Hugger…Literally | A Photoshoot

Hello, marshmallows!

Today I took Z outside for a photoshoot! She’s going to guest star in Forever, so that’s when she’ll be coming to the doll family on the blog, if you were wondering. So…I guess I’ll let Z take over!

IMG_1538.JPG

Hello! I’m Ziana, but everybody calls me Z. (Emmie: In her books her real name is Susie, but I decided that Ziana fitted her better.) 

IMG_1539

I decided to take a break from working on an AGSM (the Horrible Homework Hacker! If Emmie will let me I’ll show it to you guys!) and go climb some trees! Emmien wanted to do a photoshoot with me, and I agreed. But, I shall ruin it by not looking at the camera! Mwhahaha!

IMG_1540.JPG

Ok, Emmie, I know you’re all ‘Super-Artistic-Photos’ but this photoshoot was supposed to be of me??

IMG_1541.JPG

“What was that?”

IMG_1542.JPG

“It’s…it’s…a tree with better lighting!”

Oh so interesting am I right.

IMG_1543.JPG

AHH I’M ON FIRE!!!

Jk, that’s just the sun.

IMG_1544.JPG

I SHALL NEVER LOOK AT THE CAMERA. This rock is my evil sidekick and together we shall conquer the blogosphere, one horrible photo at a time. *pats rock sidekick*

Marshmallows.

WE HIT 50 FOLLOWERS.

WE HIT 50 FOLLOWERS?

WE HIT 50 FOLLOWERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tenor

This is so, so crazy.

50 PEOPLE decided that AGW was good enough to click that little button–the button that can change a blogger’s life. YOU are the reason why American Girls continue to Rule the World–you aren’t just another follower on another blog. You’re part of a community! A community that celebrates YOU and dolls–our little actresses that we can name, create personalities for, and write countless photo stories and stories about. YOU are part of the American Girl World family.

And as a celebration of this, I bring you….

A MEGA Q AND A!

That’s right–our very first Q and A! You can ask me or my dolls (Jade, Izzy, Felicity, Lexi, Maryellen, or Z) as many questions as you want! The Q & A closes on October 21. That gives you one week to answer your questions.

If you’re an AGW follower, than A GAZILLION  MARSHMALLOWS TO YOU. Since I’m nice here’s a badge:

Z’s Media Kit REVEIW

Hello everyone! Welcome to American Girl World! Today I’ll be reviewing the Z’s Media Kit from American Girl! This is ironic, because I am taking pictures of a photography studio in my new photography studio! XDD

You can see Victoria and Emily up there!

The front of the box has an image of the product with Z standing next to it, the Z Yang Collection logo-thingy, and some camera illustrations that look like they were done on a chalkboard. The back of the box says: Ready, Set, Record! Z’s Set features a working studio light, functioning clapboard, a megaphone, booklet, award, tote bag, and a reversible screen featuring a Seattle scene.

aw

It was fairly easy to assemble. The instructions were very detailed, “Short stick + long stick”. Thanks, AG.

Here’s it all put together! The screen is a really good quality fabric, though it comes folded so you might want to iron it. The scene is really cute! The studio light requires 2 AAA batteries. I am a bit upset they only included one studio light, as one light creates a lot of shadows and you should usually use two or three lights.

The reverse side is a green screen. The only problem about this is you would need editing software to make it work in your videos.

It also came with a megaphone, a booklet, and a “Z. Awards” trophy.

View of the booklet.

Even in the book it says to use two or three lights.

And of course, Z has her clapboard!

***NOT SHOWN: Purple tote bag

Overall, I really liked this Set! I don’t think that it is worth $60 though, Maybe more around $45. The only thing I would really change is having two studio lights, but other than that the set is adorable! I 1000000000% recommend this set and I am really excited to see the Doll blogging community use this!

Thanks for reading!

Mini Misadventures #1: The Canine Catastrophe

Hello, loyal marshmallows!

So first of all, if you are reading this post, high five, you! You are the awesomest person in the whole world! Here’s some marshmallows.

Second of all, I wanted to give a huge shoutout to Madison @ Delightful World of Dolls! Her post inspired me to write this photo story!

So let’s get on with the photo story, shall we?

.

IMG_1361.JPG

“I’m bored,” Izzy whined. “There’s never anything to do here.”

“I like doing nothing,” Raina pushed a blue lock of hair behind her ear. “It’s very quiet. I can just sit and think deeply about things.”

As Raina was talking, she noticed that Izzy wasn’t paying attention and looked up.

IMG_1362.JPG

“Hello down there!”

“Ahh!” Raina was shocked. “Get down from there!” You could really hurt yourself!”

“You’re no fun!” Izzy pouted. “Come up here!”

IMG_1363.JPG

“I don’t want to! I’m afraid of heights!”

“Oh, come on, scaredy-cat!”

IMG_1365.JPG

“Fine.”

IMG_1366.JPG

“Wait a sec, how do we get down?”

“YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO GET US DOWN??” Raina shrieked. Izzy just looked at her.

“There’s only one way.”

IMG_1368.JPG

Climbing to the edge of the wood, Izzy took a deep breath and pushed her little legs up.

IMG_1370.JPG

And she went flying! The thrill of it purged through her body as she fell, down, down, the wind rushing against her. The adrenaline was overwhelming.

IMG_1371.JPG

She landed on the grass with a fall, luckily breaking her fall. She lay there for a moment, soaking the moment in. She was the first mini doll to brave such a height, such a fall… and for it to be a free fall, she almost–

IMG_1373.JPG

With a scream and an “Oof!” Raina landed on the grass beside her, interrupting her daydream. Slightly annoyed, Izzy repositioned herself.

IMG_1377.JPG

Little did they know what lay in their future.

IMG_1378.JPG

Hearing a small bark, Izzy jumped. She turned around…and screamed!

IMG_1380.JPG

The minis jumped up and ran! Screaming, they pumped their legs as fast as they could.

But just when they thought they had lost the bloodthirsty pup…

IMG_1383.JPG

…Izzy tumbled in to a ditch!

IMG_1385.JPG
Oh, umm, sorry for the uh, dog poop that seems to have photobombed…XD

“I’m gonna die!!!!” Izzy screamed. “I DON’T WANNA DIE IN A DITCH!”

IMG_1386.JPG

Ooof! Raina tumbled in after her.

IMG_1388.JPG

But just as things had “CERTAIN DEATH” in capital letters written all over the situation…

Izzy sprang up from the ditch, hoisted her leg over the dog, and then…

IMG_1390.JPG

At least mini-doll-hungry dogs came with a ride home.

❤ Most writerly,

Emmie

I have most of the costumes done–Izzy will be a princess, Lissie a cowgirl, Alexandra a Forest Nymph, Jade a zombie ballerina, and Maryellen will be a Wizard, and Z will–wait, who’s Z? I only have five dolls! Not 6! Totally not getting another for my birthday! Heh! Heh! Heh… *Runs*

Garden Girl | An American Girl World Original Photoshoot + NTTMN #2 VOTING

She’s sporty and redheaded…

She’s your favorite doll…

She’s Maryellen!

Hello, folks, and welcome to American Girl World! It’s Ellie here!

The other day we went to Emmie’s grandparents’ house for the Aggie game (We won!) and she took me with her! My grandma has the coolest backyard, so she took me outside for a photoshoot.

I spy a new profile pic!

My shoes. I really like how the camera blurred the outside boot!

Dun dun dun…

Another dramatic lighting shot.

BEAUTIFUL DREAMER, WAKE

ON TO MEEEEEE

Alexandra: Be quiet.

Me: Because you can’t handle my awesome singing? *flips hair*

Alexandra: Sure. Awesome screeching like a dying goat/screaming old lady.

OOH BOKEH

[insert deep and meaningful caption]

Staring off in to the distance.

My grandma’s neighbor’s dog was outside, so Emmie snapped a few pics.

I randomly made up this tag… so now I am forcing you tagging you guys so yeah um I’m bad at this introduction stuff so can we just post the rules??

RULES:

  • You must display the Old Posts Tag Image:

rsvp

  • You read 5 old posts, (e.x. your first post, your fourth post, and your fifth post)
  • Make sure to link to those posts!
  • Comment on those posts and display it in your post! Ok this is confusing
  • Tag 5 other people (Make sure they have over 20 posts!)
  • I was going to say to have fun but that’s so cliché it’s ridiculous.

Maryellen’s hair is trashed. neither of them are wearing shoes. The lighting is terrible and JUST SERIOUSLY.

Compare this to a more recent pic:

Look at the difference! It’s crazy to see how much I’ve improved! Wow! #Tripdownmemorylane

2. ORIGINAL MEET THE DOLLS

My comment:

WOW I really overdid the chrome setting on Izzy’s pic. but otherwise this was actually short of decent?? Maryellen’s bio DOES. NOT. FIT her personality tho. Science?? Seriously? #OldPostsTag

Also when I was looking through my media I saw this:

A Schedule + Just Making It Clear

In Our Survey, you guys have been suggesting things like schedules*. So I decided to finally post this!

  • Saturday: Photoshoots/Photostories
  • Wednesday: Tags/Awards/Games
  • Thursday: DIYS/Vlogs/Stopmotions

I am #Rebellious and I will probably not stick to this schedule but it’s worth a shot XD

*Schedules will be ignored in case of Monthly Goals and birthday posts.

Hi guys! Lissie here. So there has been a little confusion about NTTM. And I didn’t really make it clear about the rules and stuff.

  • We post a picture of a truly me doll (Photo owned by AG!)
  • You guys comment with what you think would be a good name for that particular doll. (Which Emmie will not be GETTING)
  • We pick two of our favorite names (e.g. Paris and Elise) and we put them in to a poll on Playbuzz. 
  • You guys all vote on who you think the winner should be. 
  • The winner is announced along with the next NTTM and it starts all over again!

Note: THE POLL CLOSES ON AUGUST 31rst, 2017, 1:00 PM Central Time. The winner will be announced on September 1rst on our annual Monthly Goals post.
