I do love taking close-ups of Yren. She always looks soulful to me, plus close-ups are easier to manage than full-length shots, for which some little detail generally goes awry.
As in this case, the ribbon of her shoulder tie is showing! If I were a photoshop wizard, the ribbon could disappear. But alas, I'm not, nor am I likely to do better if I try the pose again. This is why nudes are easier--nothing that's showing was meant not to be showing!
As I was leaning her against the tree, the idea occurred to me of making some stiffish paper cylinders to slip over her legs (under her long dress). They would prevent her knees from buckling while she poses standing up on occasions when I don't want to use her stand.
We'll see if that idea works as well as another one I had about keeping Yren's wig from slipping: Handitak reusable adhesive, also known as poster putty. A little thin band of it along the back of her hand keeps the wig in place. It's doubly useful for her red wig, as I like that one worn a little further forward than it naturally wants to sit.
