New header and more pictures of Samantha’s Ice Cream Parlor – which will be primarily used as Disneyland’s Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor for me.
Looks good enough to eat!
I’m already seeing some interesting things happen as I try to photograph it. The picture above was taken just as the sun was starting to rise (for some reason, I woke up early and couldn’t get back to sleep), so especially with the Main Street backdrop in the mirror’s reflection looking darker, it gives it the appearance that the store has just been readied for the first customers of the day. Ice cream is a perfectly acceptable breakfast in my book… 😉
From 1812 to 1904
For some reason, Caroline’s never clicked with me as a 1812 girl (or even as a modern girl, really), but I absolutely LOVE her as a 1904 girl. I think her ringlets really give her that Edwardian charm. And I especially love her in Samantha’s Middy Dress. I think she wears it best out of everyone in my collection.
In my lifetime, The Gibson Girl has gone through… I think two renovations at Disneyland (I don’t think I’ve actually been back there since they re-opened it), but the one that always stands out in my mind is its previous appearance, complete with giant glass elephant. I might make my backdrops try to reflect that version. Too bad I don’t have room for a mini glass elephant statue…
This set could also act like a Farrell’s. I’d never been to one until a couple of months ago. That place is so much FUN! Really, really, REALLY loud… but a lot of fun. Never go there with a headache.
Anyway, that’s enough rambling out of me for now. If I’ve convinced you to get Samantha’s Ice Cream Parlor set as well – first, I apologize, and second, make sure you use the $10 off $100 coupon code 180323 (good until October 15th!).
