Anthony’s Monster High Post
I get a lot of questions throughout the week so I’m going to go through my asks and post all the answers here and tag it for future reference. Sorry if I’m bad at getting back to you this should help! I’ll add to it in the future as needed.

What kind of camera do you use? I have Nikon D90. It’s got some miles on it but I I love it.
Where do you get all your clothes? Bratz, Barbie, repurposed Monster High pieces, scrap fabric, my boyfriend sews some things. Basically whatever I see that I think “ooh so and so could work that out” I use.
How do you do your dolls hair? I just fool with it for a while. I’m by no means a hair person so it’s all just trial and error when it comes to that.
Who is your favorite ghoul? Spectra, Cleo and Clawdeen. I can’t pick just one.
Any tips on taking pictures? Decent lighting. I like taking pictures on sunny days but I usually I end up taking pictures at night so a tripod REALLY comes in handy because you won’t have such blurry pictures. I do NOT use flash under any circumstances so really the tripod is a must for me.
Do you edit your photos? I play with the colors in Photoshop or iPhoto but that’s pretty much it. There are some pictures that have a background edited in but that’s a more advanced tutorial that if people are interested in I’d make one.
Any styling tips? Buy a pack of clear rubber polybands. They are a doll collector’s best friend. Also I’m a posing whore when it comes to my dolls. If an actual girl would not stand a certain way my dolls don’t. CATEGORY IS: BUTCH GHOUL FIRST TIME IN DRAG.
Hope this helps answer a few questions.
