Photo Shoot with Saige

Happy New Year! Here is a photo shoot I did with my dolls.


From left to right - Saige, Kenna, Cora

They are all based on American Girl dolls - Saige Copeland is the 2013 Girl of the Year, McKenna Brooks is the 2012 Girl of the Year (mine goes by Kenna), and Cora Logan is what I named My American Girl #23. All three are dressed in the outfits they come in if you buy them from American Girl, though Cora's hearing aid does not come with her outfit.

Since today is the day Saige is released, I decided to feature her with her collection.


This is Saige with her sweater outfit, accessory bag, and paint set (though not all of it is in the picture). If you look carefully, Saige is wearing earrings. Her accessory set comes with two pairs, and it's fun to mix and match them with outfits. I really like the sweater outfit but I don't think I did a great job on it. The accessory bag does a good job of hiding most of it. :)



This is Saige with her horse Picasso, her parade outfit, and parade saddle set. Again, not thrilled with how this outfit turned out, especially the shirt. The hat actually is not part of the outfit set, and instead comes with a red riding helmet that's not in the picture. Picasso the horse doesn't look too bad in my opinion, but he's not perfect either. 


Here, Saige is with her dog Rembrandt, birthday outfit (it's called her sparkle dress but I'm not into the name), and hot air balloon. The red bag holds a camera, binoculars, map, and logbook. 


Here she is in the balloon. You can see the binoculars here. I'm not sure what the dolls will do with a hot air balloon, but it's a fun prop.


In this picture, Saige is wearing the shirt American Girl gave out to everyone who came to the store today. Since I made her today, I figured that she should get one. The bracelet and necklace are included with her accessory set, the jeans are inspired by the American Girl in-store exclusive jeans, and the boots come with her meet outfit. 

What do you think of Saige's collection? To see it for real, go to the American Girl website.

Who should I feature next, Kenna or Cora?

  3. Oh you did an excellent job on this one! I am an adult collector and I enjoyed a lot looking through your creations. I will have to show this to the little girls who come here to play with my dolls. I am sure they will get inspired by your creativity. Keep up the good work!

    1. I will. I just need to get through the tutorial for paper dolls. I'm breaking it up over a few weeks because there are so many pictures. As soon as that's finished, I will put up a tutorial for clothes.

    1. It's so funny - I was just visiting your blog from the big link page on AmericanGirlFan's website! What a coincidence!

      I would be honored if you posted about Paper Doll World. Thank you!

  10. Sorry I'm commenting so much, but have you thought of collecting AG mini dolls?

    1. It's no problem - I appreciate every comment.

      I would collect mini dolls except they're too costly, I don't really have the space to store them (paper dolls store flat, so they take up much less space), and in general I'm not a fan of their faces. But each of my paper dolls has her own mini doll.
