Safe & Sound ~ A Photo-Shoot


(Halloween Post will be up later but I was too freaking excited to not share this)

Let me get something straight. Elaborate doll hairstyles and I, don't mix. 
The most I've ever been able to do is fishtail; occasionally do a french braid down Felicity's back, but not even that really. 
But... I found a tutorial for a braid called the forever braid. And dang it looked hard. And it required crown-braiding. So I sat there, staring at the picture and video until I was like,"Eh, good practice for crown braiding," and I set to work, a simple crown braid in mind. 
I ended up with a 3/4 crown braid wrapping around MK's head. 
I am stunned at what I did. I don't know how it happened, but a part of me realized,"Hey, I can, and am, doing this!" and then somehow I got as far as I could with MK's layered hair and it was like woah.
The pictures below are now my favorites. 
Enjoy the pictures (there's a lot) and let the pictures and lyrics craft a story in your mind. Cause y'know, that's the goal. xD


I remember tears 
Streaming down your face,


When I said
I'll never let you go


When all those shadows 
Almost killed your light


I remember you said, don't leave me here alone
But all that's dead, and gone, and past tonight


Just close your eyes
The sun is going down


You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now


Come morning light,
 You and I'll be safe and sound


Don't you dare look out your window
Darling everything's on fire


The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold on to this lullaby


Even when the music's gone,
Gone


Just close your eyes
The sun is going down


You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now


Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound


Just close your eyes


The sun is going down


You'll be alright


No one can hurt you now


Come morning light


 You 


 And 


 I'll  


Be


 Safe 



 And


 Sound



 Oooo, OoooOooo


 Oooo, OoooOooo

      The hair actually wasn't as hard as I thought, but I doubt I'll be able to recreate it. xD

    1. I am far from perfect Maddie but dang thank you. That means so much to me. I don't even know how these happened it was like,"BAM. INSTANT HAIR AND PHOTOS!" xD
      And oh shush, your pictures, hair, and bokeh are amazing. I can't even do the four strand braid you did; my brain can't comprehend stuff like that. xD

    1. Aww why thank you!
      They do pair well together don't they? I've been addicted to Safe & Sound for the past few days, so the song to go with these pictures was a no brainer. :)
      And aww, thank you!!! I'm so glad you like them. :}

    2. It's one of Taylor Swift's songs that I still like (I used to be a fan of hers until Red came out :P) Perfection!

    3. I like some of the ones on Red but truthfully I don't listen to her songs much. I prefer Owl City (hehe xD) and bands like Imagine Dragons. :)
