As many of my regular followers know, I’ve created and published on my YouTube channel, the first three acts of Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. I have all the photos and stop motion videos completed for the production of Acts 4 and 5, but I’ve had a creative block for almost a year now. I guess I was hoping these videos would be received with … Continue reading Update on #Shakespeare’s #RomeoAndJuliet with #Dolls
Things get heated up between the Capulets and the Montagues, in this, my third installment of Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. All of the dolls in this video are re-painted and all of them wear wigs, in true thespian style. But in spite of their theater makeup and disguising attire, can you name the dolls? Which doll is playing the part of Romeo? Who’s playing … Continue reading Romeo and Juliet With #Dolls #StopMotion #Theater, Act 3
If you haven’t seen Act I yet, here’s a link to that video as well. I’ve finished filming all five acts of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. However placing them all into movie format is tricky stuff. It takes about twelve to fifteen hours to produce a single act. So be patient, my followers. More acts are coming! If you love my stop-motion videos, … Continue reading #FriYay! Romeo and Juliet With #Dolls! @ ChellyWood.com

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this “Musketeer” outfit (minus the pants and original boots) will actually fit Curvy Barbie®! So this week I’m going to be nostalgic. We’re going to look back at this outfit, piece by piece, and I’m going to offer you newly re-mastered … Continue reading #RomeoAndJuliet w/ #Dolls @ ChellyWood.com
We’re on the set of Romeo and Juliet today, watching the filming of Act 4, Scene 3 from behind the scenes. Check out that little clapboard I made from iClipart! (I just shrunk it down and printed it on cardstock paper, using two brads and an extra piece of black scrapbook paper for a hinge.) The doll who’s working the clapboard is my Traveler doll … Continue reading #Shakespeare’s #RomeoJuliet with #Dolls @ ChellyWood.com will be a sight to see!
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m going through some of my older patterns and re-designing them. The pattern above was originally posted in January of 2015, I believe. As I go through these older patterns, I’m focusing on improving them a bit. Here’s what I mean: They now have better instructions (like seam allowances). They now tell the difficulty level of the pattern. They include the … Continue reading Free Dress Patterns for #FashionDolls @ ChellyWood.com #Shakespeare’s #RomeoJuliet
