Worlds away from the NYC Dolpa: feeling the Tonner love again
Sasha Blaze
My camera is wanting to go back to fashion-doll territory, and I'm not arguing. One teaser, but I'll put the others behind the cut for those who aren't interested:

The wind is blowing like mad today, but I managed to get some niceish pictures anyway.

This is Shinyuu Layne, wearing a dress from Empire Designs and tubbysnuggles's earrings:

A new Tonner sculpt, Ava, wearing a classic Tonner outfit and more of Sher's jewelry. I'm not at all sure what I think of Ava. Her small mouth and heavy jaw look a lot like my Klenklen cousins', and while I'm used to it in real life, it was a surprise to see that kind of bone structure on a doll.

And Jenny Chow, an enhancement of RTW Carrie (painted by CherylJax), wearing a faboo suit by Miriyum with, you guessed it, Sher's earrings. I kinda like the wind-machine effect, but I wish I could have had a little more control over where the hair went.

That's all, folks!

I still love my Tonners, but i rarely take pics of them...
I love your Layne, i had no idea she was so pretty, she is going on my wishlist for sure :)
more please :)

I REALLY like that Shinyuu Layne--at first I thought her coloring was too cold (those icy spearmint eyes), but she's a lot of fun to dress, and way different from the classic Tonner blue eyes/red lips combo.

They are lovely. I know, I'm not into the heavy jaw-line with fashion dolls myself. I like Carrie's sculpt a lot, which is funny for me since I'm not into Tonners. She seems more real, especially since her eyes are not exactly the same.

Hum, wonder if you could photoshop out the blown hair loop in the back? But then would probably have to replace all of the background.

Nice photos, very natural looking!

Carrie is definitely one of my favorite Tonner sculpts, plus I think CherylJax did an unusually nice job with the enhancement on mine. It makes such a difference, having more detailed painting on the eyes and lips.

I had what could be a brilliant idea . . . stand the doll on the air-conditioning unit and snap away, like a homemade version of fashion-shoot wind machines! Must try it someday when the real wind isn't also blowing a gale and messing up the experimental conditions.

Sher makes such cool stuff! That's how I first got acquainted with her--I started buying her Tonner jewelry, and the next thing I knew . . . :-0

hey these sure are awesome!!!!!!!!!!! i LOVE it when you take tonner pics!

love the carrie in the wind. I think it rocks!

boy that Layne is gorgeous. mm... she's a beauty!!

Isn't Shinyuu Layne a nice one? Cherished Friends seems to be sold out, dangit, but I got mine from somebody on Prego, so . . . it's worth nosing around to see if anybody has one to sell.

Tonners are so much easier to photograph than BJDs, arrggghhh! I had almost forgotten that. It makes up for the PITA of all those tiny buckles and buttons.

Awwwww, thank you! I need to play with my Tonners more, just on general principles--they have such great clothes, and they do make terrific models.
