The theme for this challenge was "Jungle"- we had to create an outfit that our doll would wear for a jungle adventure! I found this challenge to be the most difficult one so far, since Carmen is a city girl to the bone and it's so hard to think of her in the jungle XD She hates bugs, would never wear cargo pants or other non-feminine clothes, and would probably die out there without her makeup and hair care products... But I had to come up with something. I think this contest is such a great inspiration and gets us to use our imagination to the fullest! I decided to go the Lara Croft route, since I thought it would suit Carmen's character best. Who knows, maybe she'll even go on an adventure with her husband now, dressed like this XD

This was my photo for the challenge. It was a bit windy and Carmen's hair was all over the place most of the time, but I managed to get one shot where her hair was flowing quite nicely! At first I only took full-body shots, but in the end I decided to go with this half-body photo since I wasn't completely happy with the shoes XD
I don't have any combat boots or similar shoes for my Iple girls, so finding shoes to match this outfit was the hardest thing. I actually borrowed these from Sarg, hahah XD
The next challenge's theme is "Disney" and I'm super excited about it! XD I've already picked out the character inspiration for Carmen's outfit and I think I also have the needed materials for making it. I'm not going to reveal the character yet, but the outfit is going to be something that fits Carmen's own style so she can wear it outside the contest challenge as well!
