Behind-the-Scenes of My BIG Surprises!

Two days. Two days! I’m exploding inside! I’m so excited! AHH!

Ahem. Hi, guys! Thank you for coming to DWOD today to get a glimpse of the big surprises thatย will soon be debuting – IN TWO DAYS! *hyperventilates* Just kidding, I’m fine. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You don’t want to miss what’s happening on November the 4th – DWOD’s 4-year anniversary and my mom’s birthday, but that’s not all. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now… for our first look behind the scenes! ๐Ÿ˜€

One of my surprises has to do with something exciting coming to the Delightful World of Dolls blog, andย one of the things that came with it, we decided, was a new photo editor! Ever noticed how hard theย text was toย read in some pictures? So sorry about that! ๐Ÿ™ I’ve been playing around with a few new photo editors, and I LOVE them! I thought it would be cool to show y’all some of my recent work. ๐Ÿ˜€

bs2Before…

howbigyouwannadream…ย After! What do you think? Isn’t the text a lot easier to read? I love it!

bs1Before…

whatyoufocuson…and after! I really like this quote. I learned it just yesterday at this classย of Bible school I’m taking at my church! ๐Ÿ˜€

bs6Before…

bs5… After! ๐Ÿ˜€

hoth9-psxWith the new photo editor, the HOTH posters might look a little bit different. I’m not sure how I feel about it, but since the finale will be special, I guess an awesomely edited poster would be OK. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well, if I’m that good at making posters… I’ll try my best. ๐Ÿ˜› XD

Above is a recreation I made of the current HOTH poster for part 9 of season 2:

hoth9Which one do you like better? ๐Ÿ˜€

Now for the second sneak peekย behind the scenes!

bs3ย *iPhone 7 quality. ๐Ÿ˜‰ As you can see, my 60D is busy. (Busy doing what?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )*

xd-bsOooh… what do we have HERE? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ A new… stopmotion program? Could it be the very same one basilmentos bought and used? Could I have gotten her advice, too? Could a doll be announcing something in the AGSM? Something… BIG?

Nothing? No excitement? Okay, just humor me here. XD I’m so excited I can barely stand it. I can’t WAIT for you all to see my surprises! I really hope you will all like them!! ๐Ÿ˜€

The third sneak peek…

*gasp* Hehehe! If you can’t tell, I’m having a whole lot of fun here. ๐Ÿ˜›

A few important anouncements…

The HOTH finale will be delayed until hopefully next week. I’m so sorry! ๐Ÿ™ I know a lot of you were looking forward to it (and I’m so very glad you like it!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ), but I’ve been working nonstop on these huge surprises, and the Friday HOTH would be posted on is the debut date forย all of them, sooo… ๐Ÿ˜› So sorry, once again!

But since you’re so awesome, I don’t think it wouldย spoil the series too much if I gave you a little sneak peek of the finale… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I haven’t taken any pictures yet, but…

? Issa whirling around to face Connor, Coconut in background doing something funny XD. Sideshot of both of them.
I whirled around to face Connorโ€™s innocent face and eyes full of hatred, stabbing once again my death glare into them.
? Issa shoving past him angrily.
โ€œI hate you,โ€ I spat furiously before I shoved past him.
? Awesome shot of Issa storming off in background blurred, Connor focused
I could feel Connor just smiling in satisfaction before he replied smugly, โ€œI know.โ€
? Issa from inside lanai, eyes closed closeup shot of her face. Walking.
I grit my teeth, throwing open the lanai door and letting it slam behind me.
? Lexi coming to Issa
Lexi slid open the glass door and walked toward me. โ€œIโ€™m going outside to play with Coco,โ€ she told me softly. I didnโ€™t respond, too angry to speak. I just stormed inside, leaving Coconut in Connorโ€™s care.
That was the worst mistake I had ever made in my entire life.
*
? Issa clearing off table, holding plates and dishes
After supper that night, it was once again my turn to clear off the dishes. Lexi left to go finish her history studying outside in the lovely evening before it became too dark, so I was at a loss for company.
? Issa surprised looking to her left, our right
I almost dropped the dishes I was holdingย onto the table in alarm when I heard a loud car whiz by followed withย a bloodcurdling howl.
? Amy coming in. Shot of both of them.
โ€œWhat was that?!โ€ Amy exclaimed, peeking into the kitchen.
โ€œI donโ€™t know,โ€ I admitted, furrowing my eyebrows. โ€œIt sounds liked a -โ€œ
? Issa surprised
Iย didย drop the dishes this time, and they rattled together on the table. My eyes widened, and I found it hard to breathe.ย Coconut.
I hadnโ€™t seen her since I left her outside with Connor.

(Sorry it’s squashed together weirdly. O.o)

Hehehe… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just so you know, that’s how I plan out all my photostories! That littleย camera emoji and the directions next to it tell me what pictures go with what text and part of story, so I know exactly what pictures to take. Everything is already written out, and it makes the photo-taking process a little simpler. ๐Ÿ˜€

For the second announcement, while the 4th is the planned debutย date for my big surprises, if we’re having technical difficulties or something goes seriously wrong, it will have to be pushed back. ๐Ÿ™

So please pray that everything goes over smoothly! I really don’t want to have to push it back. It would be perfect if they all debuted on the 4th! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It makes so much sense. ๐Ÿ˜›

Well, that’s it for my sneak peeks.

I can’t tell y’all too much! Hehehe. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope you’re excited for them! I’ve been in everlasting excitement mode ever since 2 AM on August 24th, when God gave me the first big surprise. (He happened to keep me up all the way from 10 PM on Aug. 23 to 2:30 AM on Aug. 24 with more ideas for DWOD, too. I didn’t know the response to my prayer that evening on the 23rd would happen that quickly. O.o And I still got up early! ๐Ÿ˜ฎย Thanks, Lord! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) XD LOLOL!

Anyways. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You don’t want to miss what’s happening at 2:45 PM, November 4th, 2016. I’m super excited about it, and I really hope you will all like it! I’m doing it for all of my followers, after all. I love you guys! Thanks for your support and encouragement! <3 I hope you’ll love what’s coming up.

Becauseย it is the biggest thing Delightful World of Dolls has ever done.

Ever!

Love,

    Agh! You’re torturing me! Why, oh why, must you do this to me? It’s like handing me candy and not letting me eat it until Friday! Of course, I get little licks along the way, but that just makes it worse, because then I just want more! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can’t wait to see what things you whip up for your blog!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am very interested and hope things go smoothly for you. If you are changing your blog theme (which I’m guessing you are) I know there can be some issues there. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Oh, and Happy Anniversary to your blog!!
    I’m very excited to see what you reveal!! Surprises are awesome!!
    On second thought, maybe I’ll just camp out in from of my computer with a sleeping bag. LOL XD

    ERMERGERSH! I’m So excited right now! I can’t wait for ALL. OF. IT! Especially HOTH! I like the first poster best. I also got something big for agdollawesome… I went premium! It was a lot of hard work to save for it, but it is SO worth it! Anyways, I was wondering if you have any tips for using premium! Thanks, and I’m SUPER excited!

      Hehehe!! Me too! Thank you SO much! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Really? That is SO AWESOME! Congratulations!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m actually not sure if I use premium – my dad and I had to purchase the domain name delightfulworldofdolls elsewhere, I believe, and I simply use WordPress.org as a platform. Kinda confusing, I know. XD Anyways, congrats again, Sam!! That is so AMAZING!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Wow, Madison, you do know how to get me exited! XD I really like your new fonts-they look so smooth and pretty. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, I am certainly looking forward to all your big surprises! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Oh, by the way, what brand is your camera?

      LOL! XD Thank you! I’m actually still deciding on them, since I realized the fancy font is the same as Small Dolls in a Big World, and I didn’t want to copy. ๐Ÿ˜› Yay, I’m so glad!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
      Oh, and it’s a Canon camera, called a Canon EOS 60D. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Awesome Madi! What photo editor do you use,I might use it for my blog!

      Madison November 3, 2016 at 6:53 am - Reply

      Thanks so much, AAG! After trying a ton (I mean a ton :P) of photo editors, I’ve settled on the app PhotoScape X for the Mac (the photos in this post were edited using that), but AutodeskPixlr for the Mac as well has some cool effects I might use from time to time. And I do regular stuff, like saturation and cropping, in Photos/iPhoto. And ooh, you have a blog? What’s it about? Would you mind giving me the link? I’d love to visit it!

  18. Maddie November 3, 2016 at 10:24 am - Reply

    OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! SO many exciting things I CAN’T HOLD IT TOGETHER!!!!!! LOLL!!!!!!!! Ok whew here we go. The photo editing looks a LOT better!!! I love it a lot, the photos look so whimsical with the editing you did. AMAZING job on that!!! And as for the HOTH poster, I actually think the second looks better just because of the thinner lettering. I know the whole purpose to to be able to read it better, but to me the thinner looks better on the HOTD poster. OH MY GOSH STOP MOTIONS?!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!? YAYYYYYYY!!!!! Ok wow I’m so excited XD I love stop motions!!!! My brother and I did them ALL the time with Legos and AG dolls!!!!!!! YAY A SUBSCRIPTION EMAIL THINGY *scrolls upward looking frantically for type bar* ok I’m officially on the list XD XD Oh my, I can’t wait till tomorrow!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
