I took some photos of my favourite couple Griffin and Aria, for Valentine's Day.
I bought quite a few backdrops from ebay.com in the previous month, and this was my first chance to try out the beach backdrop.
Griffin is wearing Can-Teen surf boards and bandana by my friend, DoA member HelenNZ, and Aria is wearing a beautiful one-piece swimsuit by DearElizabeth (Etsy shop DEWear).
They sure are a cute couple! Aria reminds me of "Gidget", from the TV show. I love the chance to showcase Griffin's awesome tattoo - not painted by me - I'm not that good. It's a "temporary" tattoo. He was sprayed beforehand with Helmar art fixative, and the tattoo is protected by a few layers of Reeve's matt acrylic varnish.
I have already damaged it slightly as it does get rubbed at the shoulder joint when moving his arms upwards. I'll just have to be more careful.
Based in New Zealand, I've been a collector of ball-jointed dolls since 2011.
