Danbo's Brags (12/22 update, MOANA!)
« on: October 17, 2016, 03:32:59 PM »
Hello all! I just finished biking 13 miles in the rain, checking every thrift shop in town and hitting Walmart, Target, and Shopko along the way.  ^^; Long day. Started out at 10 am and got home a little after 3!

Walmart and Target were a bust, Shopko was surprisingly a little better. (You should have seen the EAH sections, tiny! Walmart literally had maybe 4 unarticulated dolls squished between the MH merch.) I bought a EAH doll for a friend of mine on the arena there, but nothing for me.

But I did find some monsters thrifting! First, a dirty, well loved Lala at one store, and then two VERY well loved dolls at another- Abbey and Twyla. Twyla is missing an arm and several fingers on her remaining hand, but she's wonderful. Came with a single shoe. I forgot to take a picture before washing her nasty sticky hair.  ^^;

Speaking of pictures, here's one! These are my first ghouls since getting back into MH.



I'm not sure what I'm doing with these girls yet. Lala might donate her body to Party Hair Draculaura when I get her, assuming she CAN be body swapped. Abbey may be getting new hair entirely, I'm not digging the white and pink. Not sure what colors to pick yet. :P I'm REALLY not sure about Twyla. I love Twyla enough already, I don't know how to improve on her hair color or anything.  ^^; Any ideas? Maybe white hair?

Nice haul! Second hand dolls are always cool to find and restore! (Or use as donor or as baits to customize :p )

Thank you! I love finding and restoring toys to their full glory, so this was a real treat for me. ^^

Here's an "after" picture, two hours later. Everyone's been to the spa. Now we need some clothes!

Decided to turn this into a general brags thread.  :P Here's my new girl, Getting Ghostly Twyla. Her hair is a little mussed and I'm dying to wash it (no! Bad Dama!) but she's gorgeous.






And with my first Twyla.


I love Twyla.  :blush: I already want more.

Thank you both!  :biggrin:

I got Isi today. I'm not happy with her, I think I'll send her back and try to find a better one. She has noticeable wonk eye, and teal paint/stains around that eye! If it was just one thing I could get over it, but the teal stains will drive me nuts.




You can kind of see it around her left eye. Magic eraser was unable to take it off.

Nice! Haunted Twyla is a beauty! (Although I'm not too fond of the "ghost masks")


And that's sad about Isi, but unfortunately, the bigger the eyes a character has the more prone to wonkiness they are :/ good luck getting one you like! Isi is very pretty

Ultimately, I returned Isi, and returned the replacement I got as well. I don't think I like her enough to keep looking for a perfect face.

Got in two dolls from eBay today. Both of them are missing a hand and need some work. Rochelle's hair is predictably sticky, while Abbey's is fine, but needs styling.



Rochelle worrying over her gluey hair.

Both my Abbeys together. I've bought another one already, waiting for her in the mail. I think I've fallen for her!

A couple of overdue brags, and a private swap with @Cleoglyphics!

First up, Abbeys:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Draculauras! I won a lot of 3 on eBay. One is custom bait now (and the glue in her head was a WRECK) but here are the other two.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Last but certainly not least, a private swap with Cleoglyphics! I traded with them for a doll I really wanted but couldn't get cheap over here, in exchange for an EAH doll they wanted. I also got a couple of extras in my box! :O




Can you guess what it is? :D

Re: Danbo's Brags (12/1 Black Friday~!)
« Reply #12 on: December 01, 2016, 08:48:01 PM »
Hey all! I bought four dolls on Black Friday- couldn't resist the lowered prices! Here they all are, in their boxes. I've deboxed Gigi so far, about to unbox Whisp and Iris. Kala is staying in her box- sorry Kala, but I've heard too many stories about your tentacles snapping off!

Without further ado, pictures!




Kala is sooo pretty. I love her nose! Gigi is goregeous too, but her hands seem very... soft? flimsy? Weird.




These two were a surprise when I came home from work. I'm about to open them, but first I had to post this. :P

And from an arena member, a Freaky Fusion Frankie! I'm planning out an outfit for her now, out of some beautiful fabric I have available.


That's all from me! Did anyone else win big this black Friday/cyber Monday?

That's a nice haul! I love Kala's bright colors and I've always been a fan of that Whisp. Still need to get her for myself XD I didn't get any MH on Black Friday/Cyber Monday (The only ones on sale at work were the non-articulated super basic ones) but I did get the Gemma Stone Shoppie and used my 'We made you work on Thanksgiving so have an extra percent off' discount to get Peppa Mint and Sara Sushi. :)

That's a great haul! New Scaremeister Gigi is her best release IMO

Three new dolls today!


Cleoglyphics sent me International Haunted Spectra, and a little Zelf! Spectra is so beautiful in person, and the Zelf is adorable too.




Honey Swamp and Viperine! I had a giftcard to spend and put it towards these two; I ended up spending just a couple of dollars on the two of them! I think the 3d accents on their bodies are so cool (Viperine's scales and Honey's vines.) Honey's hair is so soft and floofy too. Love them both. I'm looking at getting Elissabat whenever she drops in price, and FCA Cleo maybe.





It's getting too dark to take pictures!

All three are lovely dolls, my fave of the three is totally Viperine(I love the ones that have scales on them!) but all are unique in their own way, congrats!

That tiny zelf kinda looks like Viperine a bit :p

I feel so spoiled! But I bought my first Ever After doll, Raven Queen! I found the release I wanted on Amazon and just had to have her. She's super pretty; the purple hair is a bit frizzy in the back, but since it's not visible from the front... This definitely makes me want more EAH. I have another doll on the way already orz. I don't even know where to put these gals!


The rest of the pics are here!

Thank you! I think the scales are just so cool, such a neat detail.
And you're right! I'm not actually sure which Zelf it is, I think it's a dragon of some kind? :0
