my boyfriend and I went out shopping tonight at around 6pm-ish so as to avoid crowds and general black friday mayhem. in that regard we succeeded a good amount — things had calmed down quite a bit. however I only made one actual “black friday purchase” and that was Power ghouls toralei. we went to target and I was after Honey (yes ik I said I hated her, she grew on me. sue me) and I saw a couple of guys restocking toys and I kinda asked if they saw an MH doll with a big blue afro, and they said they didn’t know and started opening up boxes for me, and one was a power ghouls assortment with Toralei. it was the first time I ever saw her in person and at $10 I could hardly pass her up.
after bringing her home I wasn’t so sure I liked her, but after deboxing her I realized she’s very cool. she was begging for a photoshoot and I obliged, which is when I realized homegirl is werkin the hell out of that catsuit. she definitely is the sexiest of the dolls I own. also without her mask hiding her features, she’s much prettier. I’m considering taking her hair down for a more feminine look but I dunno yet… I don’t want to ruin the stripes in her ponytail D:
anyway pics to come!! I’m gonna have fun looking through them all uwu
I realized that my tastes in dolls seems to differ pretty greatly from most others in the MH fandom
for instance, with few exceptions, I have stuck to the whole “only buying dolls I actually like” rule, mostly due to financial reasons. but the dolls I do like are not the same ones as most people seem to fangirl over. Save for the coffin bean line, I’m really not crazy over any of the new/future releases. Elissabat and Honey are maybes, but I know I like them much less than everyone else, Honey especially. my mild interest might also just be my need to always jump aboard hype trains as opposed to actually liking the dolls.
however, Cerise Hood… I’m in lesbians with her. I can’t even explain why. Maybe it’s that Amy Lee-ishness I mentioned awhile back, but I cannot wait to get my hands on her doll. I’m sort of angry for this reason that she’s popping up in Canada, and here in the US we’re only getting the dolls I don’t care much for at all. I just hope she shows up soon because I’m so crazy over her you have no idea… ;A;
but yeah… kinda sad I’m not bandwagoning it up with everyone and I’m just here waiting for one measly EAH doll (well, Cupid and Lizzie too but that will be later on). I just wish I liked these new ones more than I do. :/
oh look people found Jane Boolittle…
still a hard pass.
quick question for all you doll hair experts
when you curl a doll’s hair, how much of a difference does it make if you twist the hair before you roll it up vs. roll it without twisting??
i’m wondering because i’ve been working on maddie for awhile now, and about a third of the way through i realized twisting the strand i was about to roll would make it roll up easier and tighter, but i still have the first part of hair i worked on in curlers without having been twisted, so i’m not sure how noticeably different the two types of curls will look
anyone have any insight??
I really and truly thought I had no interest in any of the new MH releases but for some reason I’m super tempted to get all of the new scaremester dolls now that they’re on Amazon???
But I’ve been doing so well at saving my money and it’s entirely possible I’d get them and not even like them in person, and what if they have wonk eye like the last time I bought dolls online…
I’m gonna try and hold off for now. We’ll see how that goes :/
I’m really turned off by the fact that Mattel seems to now be leaning toward giving all the mh girls really big plastic jewelry / accessories. It makes them look kinda cheap and more like the toys that they are rather than the collector’s items they could pass for when they have big chunks of molded plastic hanging off of them…
I’m in need of I <3 Shoes draculaura for a trade with someone. I know big lots had them for awhile at a good price, which is why I thought I would have easy access to them, but I have been unable to track any down there over the past week. does anyone know if big lots stopped carrying that line, or are they still showing up there? if that’s out of the question, where else have they been spotted, and how much are they??
