Nice to mean you!!
« on: March 02, 2017, 03:06:49 PM »
Hello! You can call me Bee! I found out about Monster High a few years ago when playing with the young daughter of our family friends. I was blown away by the designs and creativity of these dolls! I already knew about repainting before but never got into it. After a few years, I finally decided to try it!

So here sre a few things about me:

How old are you? - Im 23 currently!
 
Where do you live? State, Country? Planet? - Im from Canada  :)

Do you work or attend school? Profession or major? - Art school drop out, just working to save money for culinary school!

Who are the important people in your life? - I am very close to my immediate family, and I have an amazing best friend who is the world to me.

Dolls: Frankie, Spectra, Rochelle, Clawdeen, Ghoulia

How long have you been collecting? - Probably only a month or so did I finally start buying dolls. But I bought a Draculaura years ago that Im not sure what happened to her.

What made you want to collect Monster High dolls? - I loved how beautiful and creative and unique they were. They were so completely different than the barbies I grew up with, I was so amazed at the quality and creativity put into them. I watched a lot of tutorials and process repaints of MH dolls and I was so inspired to do my own repaints and customizing.

Tell us about your collection!

Even from the very beginning of discovering MH, I love love loved Rochelle. But she never seemed to be at the stores I looked. My first doll is a very cheap 5 dollar walmart Frankie with limited posability and rather cheap make. I got her for practicing the materials and techniques for customizing but I found myself growing really fond of her.

Later, I found a cheap lot sale on ebay of nice quality dolls with clothes and accessories, and it included my lovely Rochelle!! Im so exited to work on her later. I also adore Spectra's beautiful transparency and face sculpt. Clawdeen is another girl Ive been fond of. As for Ghoulia.... Im still looking for some inspiration! haha

I think that about sums it up. I look forward to getting to know you guys and sharing all things Monster High!

Wow, I dropped off for a while there. Work and life always seems to get in the way!

I've been working on a Frankie repaint, and I've got a lot of concepts for others! But I live in one of the rainiest regions at the rainiest time of year it seems. So getting any time or conditions for sealant is a miracle!

But I think i'll start posting treads on my face-up journeys and what I've gotten done so far! At least until the weather clears  :annoyed:

We seem to have quite a bit in common, I also got into the dolls to do repainting.
I'm about to move to Sweden from California, so completely different weather conditions, hardly any of which will be optimal for sealing, but maybe you'll find this tip as helpful as I plan to once I move!
