It seems that every time that I lack an idea for a 365 photo, I just strip my doll down to nothing and ‘artfully’ cover her up with something like jewellery, the side of a blanket or her own hair. And I know that I’ve seen plenty of photos around with dolls that were carefully arranged so that their ‘naughty bits’ weren’t completely hanging out there. Carefully arranged shoes, ribbons or just not focusing on some parts…
How often do you take photos of your dolls where they’re just carefully covered up enough to make it family-friendly?
At what point do you think that dolly nudity’s in excess? I find that anatomically correct dolls have their time and place, but it also depends on how the dolls are posed and how adult the dolls look (some dolls look very young or resemble Blythe or more mainstream dolls where there are no details).
For me, dolls that carry no anatomically correct details are ‘okay’ for selective dolly nudity while those who are amazingly (and accurately) detailed and posed into crude positions or shown doing awkward and somewhat illegal acts are not. There’s a time and place for nearly everything, except for when there isn’t.
What are your thoughts?
