Hi everyone! I’ve downloaded Photoshop again, and today I decided that it would be fun to play around with it, just to get the hang of the software again.
While I was creating this image, I realised it would be the perfect tool to add some ~special effects~ to my photostories! Perhaps a space-themed photostory is on the way?
This image is definitely my favourite.
I think it would be cool if I had the 2018 Robotics Barbie doll -isn’t her outfit awesome? She would make a nice addition to the Space Adventure Team™.
This image is my least favourite -I don’t like how her hair suddenly cuts off, and it looks like she’s vacantly staring at the camera.
Yes, I did try to fit the astronaut outfit on Zapp! It just didn’t work, so I had to settle for a blue t-shirt.
I definitely want to edit more pictures of dolls in the future -perhaps I can do an underwater mermaid photoshoot next? That would be fun!
In other news…
They have remodelled my local Target store, which means there isn’t as many Barbie products as there was before.
On the top shelf, we can see the Careers Teacher playset for $29. I’m not a fan of unarticulated, generic dolls, so this one was a pass for me.
On the second shelf, we can see the Dreamtopia mermaids and princesses for $13. I think they are pretty, but not worth buying. I love the multicoloured hair, but I don’t have enough spare bodies! Next along is the Newborn Pups for $24 (totally not my thing), and the Colour Surprise Doll for $29.
I think the Colour Surprise doll is really cool -I love her pink hair, and her galaxy dress is really cool! But again, rebodying is an issue and I wouldn’t actually use the patterns you’re supposed to put on her hair.
On the third shelf, we can see some Dreamtopia feature fairies and princesses, both $24. Although I can acknowledge that they’d be super fun for a child, I think they’re both pretty cheap-looking.
On the last shelf, there’s the Dolphin Magic boat for $29, and a house for $39. Both prices are so cheap! I don’t really need either a boat or a new house, but they are definitely a bargain.
And that’s the selection at Target! Unfortunately there wasn’t any Fashionistas for sale, and no Skipper Babysitter or Made to Move dolls either. I’d really like for the Barbie Style line to come back, that was really cool! I would have loved to buy the Midge doll, with the white circle glasses.
Also, can you believe this is my 300th post? How crazy! ☆
