The team has been practicing for ages and is ready for the Dolly Olympics!

She finishes with a layout with a twist!

Aleah is known for her leaps.

She can even do amazing leaps on the beam!

  1. Salut!
    My friend Micki enjoyed this post. She is very much into gymnastics herself, and she would love to participate in the Rio 2016 Olympics.
    Bisous,

  2. Awesome! Your photography is excellent. How did you photograph the dolls leaping?

    I am hoping to be at the Rio Olympics 2016, competing, hopefully!

    1. I'm not positively sure, but I think I can see some kind of clear threads holding them up. I do the same thing for ballet poses, and stuff. Anyway, it looks super cool.

  3. That is so awesome! I love watching the olympics, especially the gymnastics. All three gymnasts look great, and your pictures are really fantastic. I can't wait to see who wins a medal! Its always so nerve-wracking! I don't do gymnastics myself (I have a friend-of-a-friend who does, though), but I've always kind of wanted to, it looks so fun. But it also seems sort of impossible, and I know I'd never be able to do those type of flips and stuff.

  4. Thanks for all the comments! We appreciate them. :)

    Yes, I did use some clear thread to hold up the dolls. I don't have photoshop so I do what I can to get the shots. ;)
