This is an older video, but it has been somewhat popular on my YouTube channel. Since my article was published in the March & April issue of Doll Castle News magazine, I’ve been following a theme of doll photography tips and tricks on Mondays, so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to revisit this helpful tutorial, showing how I make my “invisible” doll stands.
Now in my article in Doll Castle News magazine, I mention the Kaiser doll stand that’s often used in my doll photography. If you’re interested in buying one, they’re easy to find on Amazon. Here are some links you might find helpful:
- White Doll Stand for 6 1/2″ to 10″ Dolls and Action Figures, 3-Pack*
- White Doll Stand for 8″ to 11″ Dolls and Action Figures, 3-Pack*
- White Doll Stand for 14″ to 22″ Fashion Dolls and Action Figures, 3-Pack*
- White Doll Stand for 12″ to 17″ Chubby-Waisted Dolls, 3-Pack*
If you can’t find a white Kaiser doll stand there, here’s a link to a general search for them on Amazon. Be advised, though, you’ll want to make sure the round part at the top suits the doll you’re hoping to display in your photographs. These “waist” areas differ greatly from one doll to the next, and the Kaiser stand needs to be suitable for you doll’s waist size.
You shouldn’t pay more than about $15 per stand, even for the bigger ones, and smaller ones will cost a lot less than that! But they do give you a lot of flexibility in how you pose and photograph your dolls.
Best of luck to you in your doll photography adventures everyone!
