I think I know more about American Girl Dolls than you do, genius.
Wanted to do AG for my next set of icon boards, starting with my first doll.

When I initiated a conversation about American Girl on my #IGstory about a week ago, I never could have imagined the amount of wonderful conversations I would have about these stories — many of which we grew up with and were formative for us. I also didn’t imagine winding down with an AG book every night at bedtime at age 30. And yet, here I am, making some artwork about Samantha Parkington and I’ll be reading Addy’s Surprise tonight. 🤷‍♀️ Why? Because it’s fun.

One of my favorite moments from the summer. My fiancé took this photo of me and Samantha by the water at sunset. The lighting couldn’t have been prettier!

Meet Nellie and Nellie's Pajamas (BGC) -
500 Followers Gift Part 1
Nelllie O'Malley grew up poor in New York City, working in a factory from a young age. Her parents decide to send her upstate as a domestic servant to improve her health. In her new position she meets Samantha Parkington, who refuses to let class boundaries get in the way of friendship. When Nellie and her sisters find themselves orphaned and threatened to be split up, Samantha's family takes them in. Nellie appreciates the opportunities she now has, but she would choose the practical over the frivolous any day.
The dress comes in @serindipitysims Scientist palette. Light swatches are going to be more shiny than medium and dark ones. The ruffle is only on the front of the dress to minimize clipping. There will still be a little at the shoulders.
The hat is in the same swatches as the sash on the dress. Originally I wanted to add transparency but that didn't look the way I envisioned. At least this way it will work for more people. Slider compatible.
The pajamas and slippers also come in Scientist, with the extra canon swatch. It involved a lot of mesh-mirroring so hopefully I took care of at least most of the little gaps.
At first I considered including the Celtic cross necklace, but the ruffle makes the dress not necklace compatible.

American Girl Dolls (2/?)  
Samantha Mary Parkington ~ 1904
I believe Americans want to be good, I believe we want to be kind. And if we are kind, I believe we will take care of the children. Then we can truly be proud of our factories, and our progress.
Here I go, and there's no turning back My great adventure has begun I may be small but I've got giant plans To shine as brightly as the sun!
first released 6 May 1986

Meet Ellie! Eleanor Cornelia Hoffman, better known as Ellie, is 10 years old in 1934. She is the younger daughter of Samantha (nee Parkington) and Captain George Hoffman, and named for her mother’s best friend and sister, Nellie. Ellie’s sister, Lydia Mary (Lyddie), is 12. They have been living in a small house in Maryland, but now that Great Uncle Gard and Great Aunt Cornelia are getting old and Papa is back in the hospital for “shell shock”*, they are moving to Mount Bedford before the start of the school year. Her mother tells her that Papa had a hard time in the Great War, and the doctors and nurses are trying to help him, and maybe he will come home soon.
Times have been hard for the family since the economic depression started at the end of 1929, and everyone has been struggling. Ellie is both excited and nervous about all these changes, but she is also curious to see the house her mother grew up in and find out some of the secrets she is sure are hidden in the big old house.
*”shell shock” is the contemporary term for PTSD
In case anyone ever wondered what Samantha and Nellie’s daughter might look like, it could be Ellie. She started out as a Beforever Samantha, who now sports a Nellie wig and very light freckles. I made her dress from a pattern by BunnyBear, but altered it a bit to make it more fitted and have a fuller skirt.

hi! so i was on agig, american girl instagram, for either 2 or 3 years idk and i’ve only been on ag tumblr for a week or so but here’s a list as to why tumblr is better and amazing 💕 feel free to add more!!
- i don’t feel pressured to take photos to have a fab photo to post every single day
i feel like over time i was so pressured that i HAD to post every day to keep my followers & likes up that i was struggling and posting photos i did not like and i didn’t feel like were actually good
- ag tumblr is incredibly gay and neurodiverse
agig definitely had quite a few but nothing like these stats
- DRAMA FREE
i left agig and was about to pack up my dolls and quit because i was and had been crying from drama because of people who i thought were my friends but were not in the end and just tormented me
- there’s a toon of pleasent company action going on here on tumblr which is amazing
- everyone seems so nice and sweet
- ag tumblr dolls are all so adorable!!
- i really like being able to post longer things instead of just photos and an extremely limited caption
i know i have more so i’ll add them later when i think of them but add some more positivity about ag tumblr yall 💕

Samantha's Middy Tam and Bo's'n's Whistle - BGC
Add-ons to the Middy outfit from @linzlu's Samantha set.
The tam (hat) contains the same swatch colors as the outfit. I used @waxesnostalgic's tam as a base but changed its angle and added the ribbons on the side. The mesh is included so you don't need it, but please check out the original! It works without the hat slider. Tagged for female.
The bo's'n's whistle was done in @peacemaker-ic's lustrous metals palette and is tagged for male and female.
Download tam SFS | Dropbox

My TOU are here and make sure to check out @waxesnostalgic's as well. Feel free to tag me if you use them, I'd love to see!
