176- FINALLY INTRODUCING "MAX" (THE NEW BOY ON DOLL CAST)
August was for me a very busy month,and I realy had not chance to make any posting,even having a new doll on the Collection.
MAX,this new doll,is a Catching Fire Finnick Doll and he became a great surprise.In 2013,when the Catching Fire dolls was released,in a first moment I adored the promotional images of Finnick,but after that,observing the images of the doll by the worldwide collector's photos,I thought him a little bit ugly,or weird,or also as a kind of "Harley Ken Mold" bad version.So,I decided to choose Peeta,as the new option for a "boy".
I remember seeing first images of Peeta on ALL4BARBIE Martha's blog and it made my decision to forget Finnick and search for an opportunity to bring Peeta for the collection...and I did it.On early 2014,Peeta(that I named TIM)came among my dolls.I often kept seeing some pictures of Finnick on internet,never understanding how far he could be,from the promotional images of Mattel,to the real pictures on internet.
Also by this time I was sure that DON,my first articulated Ken playline Fashionista(2009),was not anymore in harmony by my others Kens,almost all them,Collectors.I could not make him a close up capture,without feel that his face doesn't really work for some good "expressions". So,DON was out of the collection!That was the time I thought could be maybe interesting to make a bet on Finnick even still thinking of him as an weird guy (LOL).And I started staying tuned for an opportunity to find one, by a good price.
Through my friend Alê Fiocco,it was possible,exactly in August.When I had the boy in hands,I felt so glad to have taken the decision to buy one.In hands,he wasn't exactly as I saw on his pictures.
I felt I had a challenge to try overcome:the ambition to realize better images of him than the ones I saw and that left me this impression of an ugly doll.After some tries,and after give him a new way by his hair,it was time to find a good natural light,to capture him.Well,the results are exactly what I share here with all of you.
These are just the first images of MAX.Looking ahead for more and more pictures with this hot,surprising boy.
