Hello, internet!! It is I, Lindsey Bergman, having finally convinced my human that she needed to finally get my Cinderella cosplay photos! (I did this by dramatically and loudly flinging myself to the hard floor every time she walked past where I had been set aside "for when she had time." This proved to be a very effective method - oh, fellow neglected dolls, feel free to use this technique!)
Here are the long-awaited (at least for me- I've been in this dress for months! MONTHS!) photos for your viewing pleasure:
There you have it.
Saving the world one dramatic fall to the floor at a time,
Hello all and welcome to our live post in which we update you on our magnificent New Year's goings-on! I, Lindsey Bergman, shall be your guide through the wonderful festivities about to occur! LET'S GET GOING!
This post will be updated throughout the evening. Stay online to see what we're up to!
Elizabeth has had an idea.
Inspired by her new dress (Felicity's work dress, a Christmas present), she decided to share her collection of colonial style gowns with anyone who wanted to wear one!
Most of the girls were very excited about that idea.
Even Kit got dressed up!
Samantha and Isabelle chatting about their outfits:
Wendy just looks so cute in pink.
I chose Felicity's travelling gown. I love its lilac color!
Josefina stoutly refused to wear a gown, insisting that she always celebrates the New Year by staying in her pajamas.
Of Aighmi*'s girls, only Molly chose to wear a colonial gown, and she chose Felicity's Christmas gown.
Everyone is piled on the couch, watching The Muppet Christmas Carol.
Still watching the movie... just wanted to let you know that I've opened an Instagram account for my cosplay adventures! If you want to check it out, I'm @lindseybergmancosplay.
Molly found a blanket making kit, and Nellie and I are going to help her put it together.
Blanket update: not yet tying, but we're cutting the fringe!
The tying has begun!
The rest of the girls are still on the couch, watching Oliver and Company.
Minty Molly is enjoying her job of being in charge of the remote control.
Addy really enjoyed the movie! We had never seen it before.
Almost done knotting!
We're done with the blanket!
Nellie appears to be falling asleep...
WE FOUND CHOCOLATE.
Playing Bananagrams with Hollis!
So far, she's winning...
I'm playing Groovy 8's with Taylor (you haven't met her yet.)
She's lots of fun to play with.
We're snuggled under the blanket, watching Enchanted!
Losing my will to stay awake...
"Tea! That's all I needed. A good cup of tea. A superheated infusion of free radicals and tannin. Just the thing for heating the synapses." - the Doctor
Seriously, I think the tea is the only thing keeping me up at this point...
Hello, everyone! I am Hollis Ann. Aighmi* received me as a birthday present last June, but it wasn't until now that I decided to finally include myself on our blog. I'm like that....I like to think about things, rather than just jump ahead. Preferably, there should be plently of time to think about EVERY decision. But then, once I have made up my mind, I jump in with both feet!
Full Name: Hollis Ann
I Like This Time Period: I guess I don't really have a preference. Though I sure wouldn't want to have lived before indoor plumbing!
Hobbies: Being outside, hanging out with my buddies, going to camp in the summer.
Three Words that Describe Me: Contemplative, loyal, adventurous.
My Three Closest Friends: Rose Lynn, Addy, Mint Molly
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." - Helen Keller
It is so lovely to be part of Aighmi*s little family! We have a great time together, and many adventures to share.
When the time comes for me to post, I will close by saying,
Hello, everyone! I am Molly, and I had a very full life with a little girl who grew up to have only little boys. She decided that someone else would have more fun with me, and that is how I came to be part of Aighmi*s family! I much prefer the company of the other dolls than life in storage, which was VERY boring. Also, it gave me the beginnings of silver eye, but Aighmi* said that doesn't bother her a bit!
Full Name: Molly Jean McIntire
I Like This Time Period: Right NOW! Because I can dress however I like!
Hobbies: Cuddling, chatting with my new sisters, playing with My Little Ponies, and playing board games.
Three Words to Describe Me: Grateful, curious, cheerful.
My Three Closest Friends: Aighmi*, Emily, Mint Molly
"To Molly, the surprise was all the more wonderful because you had to earn it. It was a discovery to be found only at the end of a long, hard hike. No one was going to give the surprise away, so Molly didn't ask questions about it. She was enchanted with the mystery of it all." - Molly Marches On, Valerie Tripp
Since I was given an opportunity at a new life, I want to use it well. I hope to make everyone feel content and welcomed, and I want to enjoy every moment that I am not in storage!
One thing you may not know about me is that I'm Jewish! The girls here are great about it, and I celebrate Christmas with them and they've promised to celebrate Hanukkah with me, even if we have different religions. Since today is the first day of Hanukkah (and Christmas Eve) I wanted to wish everybody a Happy Hanukkah!
Whatever you celebrate this year, make it a good one!
