200- A GODDESS READY! (JACQUELINE'S TURN )


Hello,Friends!

Jacqueline,was the second stunning doll contemplated with a new body of Chandra.And now,all I can say is that the goddess is ready!
I can clearly remember when I saw her for the first time,so close,at the Black Barbie Celebration Exhibition in 2010.
I thought her truly amazing and I decided that I'd really want her.
Her arriving was a surprise,just because I could find printed on the box,a very known brazilian consumers symbol(Imetro!),that made me arguire about the rules of the brazilian market for Barbie Collectors sales.That box,was surely meant to belong to the brazilian market.But we never saw that in the toy stores on here...
I never had a clear answer for my question...
Anyway forgeting the political aspects and focusing on the art aspects,the arriving of the afro american Dallas Cheeerleader doll,brought me great joy and made me sure about her potential for great pictures.
But,of course,at the same time,I've got the thinking of how could her be more interesting if it was possible an articulated version of her.
We were at early 2011 and the Chandra articulated version,would happen only in late 2012.And I would take contact to this release,only in the midle of 2013.And pretty soon,this doll became a rare doll to find here in Brazil and till where I know,also in USA...
My decision to end up the Model Muse bodies era,on my doll cast,called for an effort to find a solution for this two amazing dolls:
"On Location:Milan" and "Dallas Cheerleader".

Once again,I could count on the help of the ludic Gods,and in a kind of magic I found a guy selling some Chandras on the Amazon website.
Asked for help to my favorite dealer,here in Brazil,and he could buy two for me in a good plan of sell.
This was the end of Model Muse era for some of my beautiful dolls,and all I have now it's a plan to have only a trio of muses in a soon future.
I already kept one,and will put two others in a trio of muses on my collection,as mythical symbols of beauty,magic and elegance,but out of the creative projects.
It's not always possible achieve a target.And I'm glad I had once more the lucky to end up the transformation of this two adorable dolls and let behind the MM era,on my collection.I took all this time preparing my dolls for the playing,but I have none regret of that,because the exercising in the middle of all this time,made me see how this truly worths every cent and every moment spent to do it...

Thanks Once More,For Your Attention!

198- A NEW WEB SPACE FOR "CLICKING DOLLS"!


No,My Friends!

I'm not closing activities here on my Blogger space,but,as everybody knows,depending on the kind of job you do,by the passing of time,
the blog no longer works as a good place for a wide view of an artist production.
And since I have around 220 postings on here and over 7.000 pictures realized in these 8 years of fun with dolls,I decided,even on this troubled year,create another address,where my work with photography could be better observed in a professional portfolio.

This was something that I had the obligation to create as a good tool to promote my art,opening possibilibities for future exhibitions.There aren't many photos there.35 images try to brief my production.It's something projected to work as a visit card.

It was made by the WIX platform,after a long time of myself trying to understand exactly how the templates work on there.
It was not easy (LOL)!
But I guess I got something balanced,elegant.
It's very easy to navigate the Jorge Ramiro Photography site,
through the buttons at the top of the homepage.I hope I deserve a look,a visit,and,who knows... a message from some of you coming from there...

                LINK: Here





Anyway I'm glad to share this with you,and thank you for all the support and encouragement that I always get from you all.

Once again I'd like to say that CLICKING DOLLS,it's also on Instagram,and often on there,you can get some preview of the postings I'm still preparing for publish.

Will be a pleasure have you also there!

I'd like to thank Marta,our colleague of 
"All 4 Barbie" blog,for all the visits,
"likes" and comments on my pictures,there.
Always a pleasure when I see you made me a visit.I Really Appreciate that!Thank You!


            "See" You All,Soon!

197- THE ETERNAL "FRENCHY"! THE ADORABLE DIDI CONN AND GREASE WILL BE FOREVER THE WORD


Hello,Friends!

2016 it's ending,and at its begining,we had a nice surprise with GREASE LIVE TV show by FOX,in last february.
Even with some mistakes and sound troubles,it was something that redefined the live shows issues,for sure.And paid a great tribute to the well succeed play of Broadway and iconic film with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in the main roles.
The "Frenchy" character,became a movie icon.Millions of  people all across the world,and from very distant generations are able to identify Frenchy from Grease.I have not many informations about this character in the original play of Broadway,but certainly,from the Paramount Movie of 1978,Frenchy is definitely a mark.
Jansen & Conn: LIVE 2016!
Didi Conn & Joan Blondell: 1978 Movie
Conn & Frankie Avalon's finger: 1978 Movie
All this pop vibe around the pink hair girl,
comes from the awesome creation of Didi Conn,that has the lucky to be,until the present days,having fun with her creation.
Didi,was the only one in the Grease cast that had been present in all the moments after 1978.
Behind the Grease movie,Frenchy came back in Grease II(1982),
that introduce the wonderful 
Michelle Pfeiffer.
Now,in early 2016 in Grease Live,Didi Conn,had the opportunity to perform the waitress Vi,played by Joan Blondell,in the 1978's movie.
Everybody remember that classical snack bar talk,some minutes before of the "Beauty School Drop Out" song moment,with Frankie Avalon,in the Frenchy's angel dream,by the way,very well recreated by the Boyz To Men in the live show.
Didi And Carly Jansen - Instagram 2016 
Some characters fall down in the affection of the audfience,and Frenchy is a worldwide case like this.Forgetting the solo moment where Carly Rae Jansen(that plays Frenchy in Grease Live)sings,I like very much the naturality that Jansen lent to the character,less comic or gangly,than that created by Didi.

When I made my tribute to Grease and Grease Live also in february,I had not the chance to include Frenchy among Rizzo,Sandy and Marty,bringing Dee Gee,doll that I've got as a gift from Debbie Garret,in her first
February 2016 - My Grease Tribute
photo session,appropriately in a 50's
style,and celebrating the fact of a black actress/singer be playing that role.
And by this time I still was trying to repair this horrible mistake I made,not buying at the stores when I had the chance,the only dolls I have that honor iconic characters or real people.
Actually Rizzo,that is my unique 
Teresa,it was the only that I had the lucky to buy at a store.Sandy in her Rydell cheerleader uniform,I bought from a seller on internet in 2011.And since then,I was trying to find Frenchy to compose the power trio of Grease ladies,
but she was hard to find or absurdly expensive when found.
The search ended in late 2015.But as this 2106 was a very busy and troubled year,I still hadn't find a time to introduce that doll as she deserves.I have in mind the idea to insert Frenchy and Rizzo,out of their original characters,on the doll cast.
Frenchy,I believe,will soon suits very well on an elaborate plan for 2017,which the theme,it's still a secret.
About another Grease dolls reunion,all I can say by now,it's that life passes quickly,and pretty soon,in just one year,everyone of us will be probably celebrating again,with the pass of 40th Grease Anniversary(The Movie!).Yeahhh!Can you believe that?1978/2018 OMG!
Well,despite all the fury of the time,I'll be here(If God Allow!),ready to make a better new Grease tribute,this time counting on Frenchy's presence(LOL!).Only by this time my Grease girls will be together again,celebrating the fact that Grease for many and many generations ahead,will still keep being:"the word".

Thank You, For The Good Vibes And So Much Fun!

God Bless You!

196- REALLY A MODEL,A MUSE - MY FIRST FLOCKING EXPERIENCE AND A DECISION.


Hello,Friends!

This,is probably the most controversial release of the last years in the dolly world.And not without reasons.
 © Mattel's Publicity

The Stephen Burrows'dolls had not the same reception and acceptance than other dolls of great names of Fashion,celebrated by Mattel.
Alazne(a 2012 release),the second Burrows' doll,was the most criticized of the two others,the first release and the last one.
The highest point about her,comes from the surpriseingly absurd idea from Mattel,that made a hole in the top of the head of a golden label doll,just to hold on it a fashion helmet.
Everybody knows that Mattel do repetedly,lots of mistakes,that the quality of their products is something that we can often suspect,but in that case,what happened was a show of stupidity and lack of respect by the customers.
The Awful Hole!
Anyway,despite of the very annoyed reactions from the public around the world(mostly from those that discovered the trouble of the hole after buying the doll),if we forget about this point and observe the doll in itself,we can find(if we open our minds!)a gorgeous bald black doll.No,that this had been the intention of Mattel,but... there's something we can do for a change on this beautiful face!

That was my personal choice!I was not mistaken,
when I bought my Alazne,that I call SHANTY,and the hole trouble,was a challenge,that came with  the doll in itself.
 I thought it could be a great chance to create my  first doll flocking.The opportunity came at the  same time it was possible to find the flock on  sale by some handcraft stores in São Paulo.
 We were at the end of 2014,and I believe that it  was not possible to find flock for sale here,
 before 2012 or 2013.So,the moment couldn't be  better for my first try.
 Even having only some days ago the time for this  try.I followed the indications of the Emilia's  tutorial on Flickr to make it,and I discovered that it's something really simple to do,if you obey the rules for do not touch the flock on the surface you are applying,while it's wet.That's serious!I also understood that a drawing or a painted area for you to apply the glue(before the flock),will helps a lot to do a job well finished.
For a first try I can say I'm not dissapointed with myself...
It's so nice not see anymore that hole!(LOL!)
2014 New Year's Eve

Even before the flocking,at her first appearance here on the blog,opening 2015,I believe that was possible for everybody understand how awesome she is,and how incredible is her photogenic potential.
Actually,this same photo session,it's in my opinion(exactly for the capture of her!),the best job I done on doll photography.For that reason and for all the controversy around the release of this golden lable doll,I took the decision to keep her by now as the only muse among my pieces.Inspiring me with her exotic beautiful face,her elegance and the head now as it should be:without a incomprehensible hole and ready for captures,no matter the angle!

All about the choice of Shanty,as her name,it's gonna be told soon,
when I'll introduce the new "girl":Veroque!


Once Again All My Thanks For Your Attention!
