Are you ready for our Halloween costume parade? I will be getting it started later today, but in the meantime, enjoy some of the beautiful photos and videos that have come into my inbox this week!

From Charlotte: Kanani is having a sleepover woth Barbie dolls Vivian and Stella.With mini nail polishes and lip gloss, this is bound to be a great sleepover!

Madelon made Chrissa a no-sew poncho for these chilly mornings using the instructions from one of our 100 Days of Doll Play posts.

Emily was one of the winners in last month’s Reader Photo Contest and she was kind enough to send in photos of her doll modeling it.

Last weekend our Canadian friends celebrated Thanksgiving. Here is Julianne’s Lanie showing off her beautiful fall dress she purchased from an Etsy seller.

This summer aglover was the winner of the BFF Doll Company doll we did a giveaway for. She has taken the time to do a comparison video and thought you might enjoy seeing the differences between the dolls.

From Allyson – My mom got this doll from a swap a couple years ago and I recently found it in my closet! She loves to enjoy the view from the window sill!

This is Jessica a Gotz Happy Kids doll. My friend and I decided to dress her up as a Bollywood star, and we think she is sooo cute! From Ava and Nadia.

From Diana – Here is a picture of an outfit I found yesterday at Walmart as part of the “My Life As” collection.  It is a gymnastic outfit and it comes with everything except the flowers, I made those. It fits McKenna perfectly although getting the sleeve ends to go over the hands was a little tricky.  It sells for $9.97 and I thought some of your McKenna fans would enjoy it.  I am very picky about the sewing of outfits since I sew and make most one of a kind outfits for my dolls, but this one is well made and the shoes fit too!

Madelon found this cute doll baking set for $16 at K-Mart as part of the What a Doll line.
