unpopular opinion (maybe?? idk)
i know a lot of people like to mix and match mh clothes cause there’s so many options, but to me, when people take an outfit meant for a specific doll and put it on a different doll, no matter how well the colors match or coordinate with the new doll, it almost never works.
part of the reason is because the patterns used are very character-specific (frankie has lightning and bolts, abbey has ice and snow, spectra has balls and chains, lagoona has coral and fish, etc.) so if you take an outfit meant for operetta that’s covered in music notes and put it on draculaura, it will just look so out of place on her because it doesn’t fit her character.
also each character’s style is different. I can’t see toralei wearing one of draculaura’s frilly outfits or lagoona going all crazy fashionista in something of clawdeen’s.
idk i’m sorry if this pisses anyone off, it’s just something i noticed.
for real though guys
many of us have our titties in a tangle (myself definitely included) because we so desperately want to get our hands on our new releases of choice, which are rare for us right now, but realistically, in a matter of a few months (tops) we’ll have not only found and bought them, but they’ll be pretty much everywhere. one thing that mattel has done right recently is keep supply much higher than demand (which is a good thing for us)
like, we’re sick of seeing scaris, ghouls alive, ghouls rule, and ddg everywhere, but it won’t be too long before you’re walking into target or wherever and you see a shelves full of 13 wishes, ghouls night out, and classroom two packs and you just sigh and go “oh well”
just thought i’d toss out some perspective
so awhile back I posted a photo of a GA spectra, falling over in her box, sort of looking pretty sad.
today I went back to that walmart, and she’s still there, so I decided to take a closer look. not only has she become way more of a mess, with her arm sticking out of the hole in the box and her hair a disaster, but I noticed her belt was undone and her clothes were half-removed. also, the top of the box had been torn open then taped back shut, and to top it all off, rattling around at the bottom of the box was her leg which had snapped off.
it seems to me like someone bought this for their kid, who played with her then immediately destroyed her, then the kid didn’t want her anymore so they shoved her back in the box and returned her to walmart.
i just don’t know why walmart would accept it as a return, let alone put it back on the shelf in this condition, for full price. it’s just sad.
ok I guess my lazy mh + tea day will be tomorrow cause i ended up going out with people whoops.
wuteva tomorrow’s good too ya dig.
today i just wanna be lazy and watch monster high specials and drink tea.
because bitch i’m 22 years old and i’m allowed to make that choice.
okay OKAY i’m sorry I know I said i’d hush after the last thing i said about the whole america not getting dolls business but i just thought of something that bugs me that i was reminded of by someone else in the tag.
it’s that when distribution blows, as it always has, and it’s taking the stores near me 80 years to get any of the new dolls, all that seems to come up in the tag is others’ photos of the dolls I want, then by the time I finally get them there’s no more surprise — it’s all spoiled.
i’ve already seen all the little details, from every angle, in every lighting, and every pose. none of it is new to me by the time i get the doll. and i’m sure others can relate to this too, after waiting a very long time to finally find something in their area or country.
i could stay out of the tag entirely until i’m 100% caught up on the releases i want to buy, but who knows how long that might take…
so yeah, just another reason it bugs me that mattel arbitrarily chooses what regions or countries are made to wait for new releases.
Okay I’m gonna say one more thing on this then shut my mouth I promise…
But a few people are saying things like “why can’t Americans realize that there are more countries than America and how good it is that places other than America are getting MH dolls first for once!?”
honestly the last time I remember a doll showing up here first was the Venus/robecca assortment and that was about a year ago, or longer.
Every other new line or assortment showed up either in Canada, Australia, or the UK first, including these new ones.
And yeah I’m allowed to get annoyed if I’m after a doll but I just happen to live in the wrong friggen country right now and so I have no idea when to even begin looking.
My sincerest apologies.
also getting pretty sick most of the u.s. seeing absolutely none of the new releases.
i realize in the mh fandom patience is a virtue, but it sucks seeing people finding heath & abbey, GNO, 13 wishes, and bloodgood, when today my friend was just happy that he finally found a scaris deuce.
and yeah idk I just wish mattel could possibly get their shit together and start shipping things out everywhere at one time instead of making almost everybody wait while a lucky few get their hands on stuff first for no apparent reason
oh my god the person who ranted about skelita actually deleted her blog.
or changed her url, but in any case
I guess that’s really what you get when you post something so harsh and sensationalist without doing any research whatsoever.
really, it’s hard for me to have sympathy for her when she was being such an alarmist, trying to give mh a bad name while using incorrect information and scare tactics.
it comes down to this: this is the internet. we have basically all the tools and resources we need to be informed, right at our fingertips. there’s no reason to make ignorant posts such as that when you can easily spend that same amount of time online doing a little bit of research and trying to understand your subject matter a little better before going off like a rocket and making yourself look like an ass.
so yeah. that’s what happens, ladies and gentlemen.
wow lagoona’s 13 wishes diary is… almost creepy.
the thing is, lagoona’s always been the one to rely the most heavily on the “be yourself” shtick.. so it makes me believe that Gigi is kind of an antagonist, who just fulfills their wishes based on what she overhears or through rumors or what have you.
because you go from her feeling depressed about Gil and saying “I wish there was a way his parents would like me”, and then suddenly next thing you know, she’s a freshwater monster, and it makes me think she might not have had much to do with the decision, because i don’t think she would have ever actually chosen to do that of her own volition.
but I’d really like to see all their other diaries too… it interests me to see what the wishes do to their personalities, even if it does seem to be a little dark sometimes.
