Death
Am. So. Tired!

Anyway, again, I can't seem to get things done when I'd like, but since I have the sleepy-sleepies and haven't budged from the bed and the laptop since I've been home, I finished putting this one together.

Like the last, I'm not entirely sure it works. But I did get an idea for another "doll" themed vignette. Next time. ;)

I love your photostories so much. X3

"No, I'm not calling you from prison!"

Oh, poor Martel. XD
05.14.09 (UTC)
I wonder what he did to make her suggest that? XD
05.13.09 (UTC)
Oh man, you so have a great talent for this!
05.14.09 (UTC)
I really enjoy making them. It's stress-free and doesn't involve fine motor skills. LOL!
05.13.09 (UTC)
VERY cute. :3
05.14.09 (UTC)
XD I think we've all had one of those conversations with a parent over the phone that makes you want to throw the phone out the window.
05.13.09 (UTC)
He looks so stressed!!!! And a lot like I look on the phone with my mom!

Awesome. <3

Actually I got the idea thinking about watching my mom on the phone. She was always so dramatic. And it was Mother's Day and I missed her, so I thought, well, shouldn't my dolls have moms at least? And if they have moms... well, conversations like that are unavoidable. XD
05.14.09 (UTC)
XD;;; I love it. *hughug* It's fantastic.

I... Franks and Vivian must have a mother... I mean... they are related? Good point!
05.14.09 (UTC)
Franks and Vivian's mom... should be quite the interesting lady. :)
05.14.09 (UTC)
:3 I'm going to have to think on it more... but yeah... she's probably a bit nutty...

It's like, you know, when the person on the other end is talking TOO LOUDLY and won't shut up and you just want them to stop, but it's also funny and if you hold the phone out in the middle of the room, maybe the world will listen in and make the misery go away?

I love Martel's dainty pink floral bedcovers! x3

Also, poor Martel's mom... ^^;;;
05.14.09 (UTC)
You mean my dainty pink floral bedcovers! LOL! I wish I had thought of putting smaller pillows on my bed, but oh well.

I'll bet Mama Martel is a force to be reckoned with, though not a particularly attentive parent.
05.13.09 (UTC)
Ahhh, there's so much annoyed, natural motion in these shots. =D Excellent use of perspective as well!
Very nice work!

...I bet that last bit shut her up quite quickly. XD
05.14.09 (UTC)
Thanks! Martel's such a good player when it comes to these things. But I really don't think he wanted to talk to his mom. Oh well. XD
05.13.09 (UTC)
Pwahahaha, even though its only photos of him with the phone (cleverly taken at different angles), the storyline and phases kept me wanting for more and I can easily imagine what sort of mum she is and what she'd expect of her wayward little boy from this one-sided conversation. Definitely love the last bit, bet she was speechless! xD
05.14.09 (UTC)
Thank you! I keep waffling between wanting a matriarch sort of doll and not. I think I like the implication of Martel having a mother, but I'm not quite sure what I'd do if I actually had her. (I'd really like him to tell me why she keeps insisting that he's probably calling from prison. LOL!)
05.13.09 (UTC)
Oh Martel... Your Maman knows you better than you think. :-P
05.14.09 (UTC)
Oh, Maman knows everything. ~_^
05.13.09 (UTC)
Hmm I had never thought about Martel (or any doll-character really) having a mother. I imagine her large, loud and severe with the best of intentions and quick to smoosh her boy into her bosom on sight.
05.14.09 (UTC)
It's a thought I"ve been having on and off. As well as the implications of *dolls* having *moms* that aren't us. I imagined her completely different, but I like that.
05.14.09 (UTC)
Cold, whithering supermodel type?
05.14.09 (UTC)
Empathetic but not physically affectionate, discriminating, doesn't know what to do with children, and probably pale, blue-eyed and bottle-blond. I'll bet she's a medical researcher and goes on sabbatical in Africa or something equally outside the typical *mom.*
05.14.09 (UTC)
Hmmm...maybe I was thinking about his paternal grandmother then.
05.14.09 (UTC)
Or maybe a step-mom or both? There's got to be a large formidable, ample bosom-ed type in there somewhere.

Is seems so strange pondering doll lineage. XD
05.14.09 (UTC)
Stranger still: Your vision of his mother sounds just like my mother.
05.13.09 (UTC)
*flails*

Oh, K~!~!~!

Your control of the camera/poses/angles here is just flawless. Frustrated full body shot #5 is.....just simply stellar. I'm amazed and impressed and I love this. Love. This.
05.14.09 (UTC)
May Vita: Telephone.

♥ Thank you!!!

I really, really struggled with the images for this one. Much to the point of not caring at #12 because I couldn't get the color right or the focus where I wanted it to be - after three rounds of setting up, shooting, and checking to see what I actually got. (I'm also slightly annopyed at myself for not realizing that my pillow throws off the scale worse than the fact that I'm using my bed and bedroom as his. HAHA!)
05.14.09 (UTC)
I have to agree with this as well. XD;;;
05.13.09 (UTC)
Panel 10 is just amazing!

I love this -- poor Martel!

-- A :D
05.14.09 (UTC)
He'll survive. ♥

05.13.09 (UTC)
Most excellent. Good photostories are hard to do successfully . . . you do a stellar job . . . love your sense of humor, camera angles, and love. ♥
05.14.09 (UTC)


I always worry that no one else will find humor in the same things I do. But really, who hasn't had a conversation that went basically like that. It's "You only ever call me because _____" and then you spring something completely different on that person.

LOL! I don't want to know what the "Hi mom, I'm calling you from prison" phone call was like.


I still need to pick out a "love child!" O__O
05.13.09 (UTC)
Martel is soo friggin adorable, I am totally joining his fanclub ^__^ and ...baby? This I have to see!
05.14.09 (UTC)
Yep! Baby! I still need to pick one out though.

I think if Martel thought he had a fan club, he's go hide for a week. LOL!!
05.14.09 (UTC)
He always manages to look so... well, so very real, for lack of a better way to say it. (You've got a gift for this, clearly.)
05.14.09 (UTC)
Aw! I'm convinced Martel's one of those toys that wants to be real. Why he cooperates with me in ways none of the others do is beyond me. hrm...
05.14.09 (UTC)
martel is amazing. he looks so natural in these photos.

i would love to know exactly what his mother is saying to him. the last panel just kills me.
05.14.09 (UTC)
Thanks. I think it's just him. He's the only one cooperative enough to let me abuse him like this. ;)


I wish I could tell you what Martel's mom is saying, but you'd really have to ask him about it. XD

05.14.09 (UTC)
I don't think so either. Talking to him is like... talking to a cat.
