Purple Hair and Horses-A Photoshoot

Hiya. Sorry I haven’t posted much, but I have a video that should be up later today. Anyway, here’s a photoshoot of my new doll, Octavia [who’s profile is now finally added to the ‘Meet the Dolls’ page]. And also I have some very sweet friends who sent me a book [Black Beauty], and some Schleich horses for my birthday!
Isn’t Octavia pretty? Her eyes are really big so they look kinda bugged-out at times….but, oh well.
And here are the Schleich horses! You all remember Spike, right? The sturdy, black one with the tail that looks like a mop is Indigo, and the grey mare is Ebony.
I don’t really collect Schleich horses, but it’s nice to have a few!
I’ll just let you enjoy the pictures!
You can see my bracelet.
Yeah, it snowed. Literally snowed. In October? Technically, it’s November but it was October when it snowed. It almost never snows in October. It’s pretty much all melted by now but it’s still cool.
Sorry that my finger got in the way. But just look at Ebony and Indigo. They’re in love. Or Indigo’s biting Ebony.
Aww. 
I don’t know why I like this picture.
I had more pictures, but they’re not uploading for some reason? Ugh.
Anyways, hope you enjoyed this little photostory.

Which of your blog posts took the most time?
It took an entire day

Okay, this song has NOTHING to do with fall, but I always think of ‘’Stay Beautiful’’ by Taylor Swift

My Questions
[For fun] Have you ever stalked a fictional character?
Dream job?
Favorite dessert?
Stop-motion or iMovie?
Do you like antiheroes?

Anyway, so here’s what I got for my birthday.

Note: In no way am I trying to brag about what I got. I’ve simply seen a lot of bloggers do this [and it’s ridiculously easy, and I’m behind on posting but shhhhhhh]
This was given to me by my best non-blogger friend. It’s so pretty.
She also gave me this necklace which is again, so pretty. 
From my parents I got another BJD doll since I’ve used Delphi so much.
Also, sorry the lighting is so bad,
She’s gorgeous, and so PURPLE.
Did I mention dark purple is my favorite color?
Gorgeous hat. She’s the star of a stopmotion I’m making that will probably appear on my blog so stay tuned.
Gogeous tights, boots, and dress.
I’m going to call her Octavia. She’s made to look like the zodiac sign, Scorpio.
She came with a necklace but I don’t have a picture of that, unfortunately……..
One of my sisters gave me this shirt. Again, the lighting isn’t the greatest, but it has a picture of my favorite Battlestar Galactica character on it.

I got The Avengers on DVD from my other sister. 
Of course we watched it right after breakfast.
I also got a lot of birthday money. Like, what am I even going to spend it all on?
I guess I do need a new purse…...and more doll stuff wouldn’t hurt.

Here are some pics of Chrissa in her Halloween costume.
She’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this post.

If you write what’s a current WIP about?
Okay, here’s the summary for the fanfic I’m writing on my personal blog. 
Carla Baxter didn’t know how much her life would change. Five years ago a massive change caused her to switch organizations, and eventually find the love of her life. When she’s hired to kill an operative working for their organization she hesitates. However, her abusive boss makes it hard to say ‘no.’ Meanwhile, in the current time another life-changing event happened making her doubt her abilities to keep working, and putting her relationship to the test. In this thrilling, action-packed romance Carla must discover what she’s going to do with her life, fight trauma, and eventually rediscover herself and her desires.

What’s a word you always misspell?
Massachusetts.
If you could live in one city or town for the rest of your life where would it be?
Storybrooke, Maine [anyone get that reference?]. Okay, maybe L.A, since there are so many acting and directing jobs there.
Or somewhere in Colorado, since the weather was so nice. 
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Immortality, and invincibility are high on the list. Telekinesis would also be great. And it would be cool to have the power to go into whatever movie you’d choose.

There are so many great ones for ‘Best Movie’! The Avengers, Avatar, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, RED, Tangled, The Italian Job,The Goonies,  Legally Blonde, Descendants etc. etc. As for worst I saw this really awful Cinderella retelling.
