Hi everyone! *waves*
« on: February 27, 2017, 08:35:27 AM »
Well, I've never been good at introductions, but here we go...

My name is Sabrina and I was born in Argentina some 32 (I know) years ago. My life it's kind of on hold right now because I am the sole caretaker of my grandmother, but I have every intention of resuming my studies this year.

I started my collection right off the bat, when the first dolls were released. I just fell heels over head for the painstakingly detailed designs and the not so subtle dark references in the dolls diaries, from Draculaura's past as a human girl and determination to "not going back to her old ways" (drinking blood?), to Spectra's chains (she obviously died in a dungeon, was she a spy/traitor? Maybe that's what informed her current gossip-y nature). The general gothic aesthetics were just the cherry on top, I knew these dolls were something else.

I got my first (Spectra - the store was out of Draculauras) for Christmas, and I've been slowly growing my collection ever since, though it's kind of a challenge because I have to buy them overseas for three to five times the original price. That's why I don't buy every single doll but the ones I know I can't live without it, and kept them all in their boxes - mint condition.

Off the top of my head - so far I have both Cleo/Deuce packs and the original Clawd/Draculaura gifset. Draculaura, Operetta, Spectra, Elissabat, Sirena, Casta Fierce and Rochelle first editions. Draculaura Collector's Doll (my precious); Draculaura and Lagoona Blue's Monster Exchange Program editions; Draculaura and Frankie Sweet Screams editions; Draculaura Art Class edition, Nefera and Luna Boo York's edition, Cleo Ghouls Rule Edition; Dracubecca; Cleo, Draculaura and Operetta Frights, Camera, Action! editions; Operetta Dot Dead Gorgeous and Clawdeen Ghoul Sports.

I already ordered Lagoona and Rochelle Shriekwrecked Nautical Ghouls, and I am dying to get my hands on some good Abbey and Robbeca dolls.

I am so glad I found this forum! :)

Welcome!  I'm pretty new here myself, but I've found the forums to be really informative and everyone friendly.

Hi welcome, you obviously have good will power to keep the dolls in their boxes. Have you opened any you just had to  debox.  I like the dolls out or devices, there is a few I keep boxed but not many.  My hubby always teases me and  says playing with your dolls?  I always reply no just sorting and organizing. :biggrin

What dolls do you find locally any?

Welcome to the Arena, Sabrina!  (Sorry for the unintentional rhyme. :lol:)

MH really is a strikingly unique line, isn't it?  And the dolls are so varied that there's a character for absolutely everyone!

I'd love to see your collection one day. 
All MIB?  Wow!  I tried to at least keep my CE and SDCC dolls in their boxes... but I failed. ^^;

So glad that you've joined us here! :hug:
