Feodora's Elyria Shoot

      I had the opportunity to meet with Matt Krivicke and Bronwen, courtesy of Mahtek. He did all of the driving! (Thank you, Mahtek!) We took Feodora so that Matt and Bronwen could get a good look at her.

      We met at the Olive Garden Italian Restaurant in Elyria, Ohio, just west of Cleveland. After lunch and some conversation, we went to a park very close to the restaurant. Mahtek is cautious about security, so I ghosted him out with Photoshop.

      It was cold enough for snow to be on the ground, but Feodora is a trooper, and she weathered the cold without complaint!

I should have paid more attention to her fingers!

You can see how the ring finger is bent a little downward.

During the shoot, she did have some questions to ask.

Looking up from the slide side.

Here she is turned around. She did not want to down the slide!

A long shot of the slide area.

We were losing daylight, and I switched to on-camera flash for some fill light.

The flash made the background darker and more romantic.

I need to Photoshop out the stand for some of these pictures.

Some of them should be easier because only some of the stand shows.

I tried several angles and heights to get just the right look.

Luckily for me, Feodora has a lot of patience, and a built-in heater!

We hope you enjoy our photos!

      Feodora Verochka Tychovich is a life-sized platinum-cured silicone rubber doll. She was produced by Oleg Bratkov (a gifted sculptor) and his beautiful wife Irina (excellent makeup artist), at Anatomical Doll in Vladivostok, Russia. Feodora has Face 3 and Body 3 of their product line. She has a fully articulated skeleton and can pose in most natural ways that a human can pose. There are 'stops' on the skeleton that prevent her from posing in unnatural ways. This also helps to prevent damage to the silicone.

      She is wearing the Red Ruffle Dress, Shades of Brights Y Necklace Gift Set in White, the Heart of the Crusade Pin, the Scroll Cuff Watch, and the Goldtone Marquise Ring, all from Avon. Her White Stag ballet flats are from Wal Mart. Her wig (from Forever Young), necklace and earrings were given to her by Irina at Anatomical Doll.
