I think that perhaps this post would have been better titled Boozing with Belle.
When I first thought to make that kiddie pool from Tutorial 1, I had envisioned Belle sitting on the front steps of her house with the pool in front of her. Then I made front steps out of cardboard. I noticed two things when I did this.
- The scale was off. I had made the steps too big.
- Cu-Poche’s have rather heavy heads and she kind of toppled off of them… more than once.
This being the case I revamped the steps. I got out my trusty scissor and cut it apart and made the log. Is it a log? I don’t really know what I was going for with that… in the background of the picture. Maybe it’s a backless bench? Whatever it is I made it.
The Cu-Poche parts used here are from Belles’ extra head/hair set, Anne’s extra head/hair set and the swimwear body.
You may notice the water in the pool change slightly throughout the shoot. At first it is a blue ribbon made of thin sheer fabric, underneath is a wad of cotton batting.
It looks a little foamy. Kind of like a hot tub.
When she was actually in the pool I couldn’t really maintain the look so thank you Photoshop. Perhaps not the most realistic I figure it’ll do.
I figure I will let the rest of the photo’s speak for themselves.
While I did not utilize the pool exactly how I had seen it in my head, I believe the shoot was relatively successful. If nothing else I had a few good chuckles, and I learned it would be necessary to take this into account in the future.
