QOTW: Are your dolls summer ready?

With no foreseeable travel plans this summer, my dolls are fuming at the fact that they won’t get their photos taken in exotic or even remotely interesting places. Chances are, I’ll take in a couple of day trips with some hikes here and there this summer, but no trips planned for fun in Tokyo or San Francisco (unfortunately!). In the past, I’ve taken Blythes on vacation with me. Moxie made it to Vancouver Island with me in 2012, and Eden went with me to Hong Kong in 2013.

While I can still be quite shy about photographing my dolls locally, I don’t feel that apprehension towards photographing dolls in public when I’m on a trip because I know the chances of me seeing those people again are slim to none. It helps having the power of anonymity on a trip because it doesn’t matter, in a way. Living in a metropolitan area of 2.5 million should help, but it really doesn’t – going on trips and having distance does! The benefits of anonymity allow me to be much more comfortable about photographing my dolls in public.

Are your dolls summer ready? Where are you jet-setting off to?

  1. so funny! 2 years ago I also took my Bubble Boom to Vancouver Island 🙂 I will be there again this year. I always take a doll with me and I always have a difficult time choosing who gets to travel 🙂

    I don’t have any plans for travel this summer! I am always hesitant to take one along with me when I’m flying – I am just so worried that something terrible will happen!
