Window Seat

American Girl has come up with some adorable outfits over the years, but this one was never my favorite.  I mean, purple with blue spots and a bright pink hat paired up against greyish-blue corduroy pants?  Wow.  I suppose it could make a statement for those out of the box thinkers.  I, however, have always had more of a close minded brain, and this hurricane of clothing never even registered as 'cute' up there.  I would never wear it.  My dolls would never wear it.  Okay swell.  Why are we still discussing it?

Because, my friends, I payed cold, hard cash for this delightful ensemble.  What in blazers was I thinking?
Oh come on guys.  Don't you get it?  It's obviously Sulley and Boo.

The colors are just inverted.  Suddenly it's turned into the most adorable thing I could ever imagine.  From the darling knit cap to the sweet little sweater of Sulley.  

And it just so happens Gypsie is a ginormagantic fan of Monsters Inc.  What a crazy random happenstance. 

Poor Mike.  Maybe I could get her green necklace.  Something to match her stunning eyes.

So Close to Summer

Well, I'm tired.  This week has been extremely emotionally stressful as I journey through these last remaining days of school.  It's not that the work is so hard, but my deep fear of finals and testing has led me to have several light anxiety attacks.  
For some reason, I've always had an extreme aversion to any sort of academic drills.  The symptoms include headaches, nausea, anger towards myself, and excessive crying and basic panicking.  This obviously isn't the most ideal way to start a quiz or, much less, a final for your school year.  However, I'm working on the problem.  Slowly.  

To cheer myself (and you all, of course) up, I'm sharing some photographs of my lovely custom girl, Gypsie.  Her parts include a scalped Marie Grace, a Ruthie wig, and a smattering of freckles, because freckles are much more fun to say when paired up with smattering.  

Her character started formulating shortly after her arrival.  I nabbed Molly's Bike of craigslist and she instantly claimed it as her own.  

Her outfit was completely designed and made by Clarisse's Closet on Etsy.  I'm in love with the soft turquoise cardigan and spring dress.  

The hat adds a wonderfully unique touch too, don't you agree?

She also has a twin brother who'll show up on here one of these days.  After I give him new hair.  Oh dear.  That didn't sound very humane.
