Today I managed to change a couple of the boys into some warm sweaters and cords.
Zak is wearing a sweater and Hat by Olive ( Hagnolly ) and Toby a grey sweater and hat by Jane Woodbridge that I was lucky to win in a raffle at Judith's fun day.
Percy was happy to put on his Ginny of A Passion for Sasha cords and Michelle ( snuzz1mich62 ) sweater in navy, Valentine was slightly less willing until I said he could keep his polo neck shirt on underneath! Unfortunately the only red shoes I could get to would not fit properly so he put his Euro shoes back on that are navy with a red trim.
All the boys together, Trendon was happy to keep on what he was wearing, as was Erik and Robin. Although I would have liked to see all of them in Cords and matching coloured sweaters, in truth I just Love Erik's and Robin's outfits that I could not bring myself to change them!
I did however feel overwhelmed by the amount of things, clothes props etc that greets me every time I go into the room where I keep everything, so I will be selling on lots of clothes on ebay or this blog in the next few weeks plus accessories once I sort through although I may save those to sell at Chat n Snap just for easy of posting!.
Still not sure about Trendon's eyes!
Your boys are looking extremely smart Dee! Who did your Trendon repaint...what is it you don't like about them?ReplyDelete
Are we allowed to swap our Trendon before the October meet?
Thank you :) I think they are just so bright! compared to the usual eyes. I got Lindsey to de them for me but I think I may have to get her to have another go!! :)Delete
Well no you cannot really swap him or it's not him it's another one and since you was the one in such a rush to show him of....... :)
I was asking as a general question really as I am happy with my choice of Trendon, I thought if you didn't like your repaint you could swap him for another before the meet :)Delete
Thanks Ronny, That's very sweet of you :) should I call the Doctor or will you? :)Delete
He may just have to have more eye surgery or wear dark glasses!! Only time will tel... :)
or I could go for his TWIN Tendon !!
I can do sweet..well, now and again...I don't like doing it too much :)Delete
A very handsome line-up of boys! Love the boys!!! Their shirts, sweaters, pants, hats, and shoes all look great! There is something special about seeing them all together. They each look unique and have their own personality! Great post! :) xxxReplyDelete
I Do like seeing the boys in a group and It's nice that not all of them are dressed the same. :)xxDelete
The lads all look warm and ready for time out of doors. Hope they don't get lost in the fog if it is the same where you are as here - just spent 5 minutes telling a plant pot to hurry up and come inside, thinking it was the cat..... partly my eye sight but mainly the fog.ReplyDelete
They are a handsome bunch. If you really can't get used to Trendon's eyes, try using some water soluble pencils to reduce the amount of yellow in the green paint - if it doesn't look right then, you can wipe it off with a moist piece of cotton wool. Once you have the look you like, Lindsey would be able to mix it in acrylics.
My toddler, Timmy, had eyes that were almost neon green on my first attempt, but the class teacher showed me how to try adding blue or brown to change it that way, before making another attempt with acrylics. I m not 100% happy, byt decided to leave him as is in case I made things worse.
We had fog here it was there when we got up, then went off for a while then came back for a while! Don't know what all that was about!! You need new glasses madam! that poor plant!Delete
I'll maybe give it a try when I am feeling more confident at getting Lindsey to do want I say!! These artists!! or will I just make him worse.......;)
I'm still always into stripes, so the Zacs sweater is my fav. But would wear the grey one as well:)ReplyDelete
Lovely pic of your gang!
(I agree with the eyes -if I understand your doughts correct. In my opinion, it's never easy to pair different dolls. They often seem to bite each other. I saw this -not usual, but in individual case in fact with Trendon and Goetz eyes)
I love that striped sweater too! Ronny bought it first then when she sold it I snapped it up!! :)Delete
The gang are looking good!
Yes I will have to think what to do about those eyes! :)
The boys look handsome and it's nice that they're not all dressed the same, boys like to be comfortable and not all of them would feel comfy in sweaters, or so they tell me! One of mine has been wearing cords with a short sleeve tee shirt all winter for this very reason ;)ReplyDelete
Big hugs Sharon xx
It's true they should all be comfortable in what they are wearing but I don't believe your lad would not have liked a sweater even just for a night or two when YOU were complaining of the cold!! Does that lad now have a cough? you'd best go check and feel his head in case of fever!! :)Delete
Hugs Dee xx
See that your lads have decided then that they are not going to dress 'with a on-Trend' theme this year which will obviously make it a much cheaper overall clothing year for you with regards to the boys..ReplyDelete
Good to see their individual charaters and personalities emerging as this new Trendon year sets in.
A very happy and fun year to all of them. Now wondering just what 2015 has in store for them.
Yes we are having a make do and mend year and wear that's available and you like! Hpw long this will last we can only wait and see!.Delete
I'm sure they'll be getting up to a fair bit this year ! :)
