I lucked into a Monster High Make Me Over Case at the Goodwill. Currently retailing at Target for $25.99, I got mine for less than 5 bucks. Problem is, it's missing the front skullettes that are the closures for the case.

Can anyone recommend how/where I might be able to get replacement skullettes?

I've had a similar problem with operetta's front jacket skulette being missing. It's definitely smaller though kind of a doll ring.

Lol, yeah, much smaller!

These are more the size of a doll's head, and are the latch pieces that keep the whole thing closed/secured. I'm thinking I could find a creative solution, I couldn't turn down the thing, especially when the manager marked it down another couple bucks when I pointed out the latches were missing! So I paid maybe $4 total?

The only way I figure you could get a replacement is on eBay...I checked Mattel's part store and they don't offer them.  Sometimes that's the only way to get a piece you need...buy it as part of a "Lot".

Heya DogMom, I take it you're talking about this? https://www.target.com/p/monster-high-make-me-over-case/-/A-14749735
TTPM's review revealed it's made by Just Play, not Mattel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zprokq5-8-4
Here it is on their website; https://justplayproducts.com/products/monster-high-monster-fy-makeup-case/
I would try their 'contact us' link & ask if they offer replacement parts. Bear in mind, you might not be eligible as you bought it second hand. I wish you the best of luck, though.  :)

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Listie, that is exactly the case! It never occurred to me that it'd be a MH licensed product and not made by Mattel. I will check it out!! Thank you!

And Wuv, thanks for the ebay idea! I haven't checked there yet.

Are they decorative or are they the actual latch? Either way you might be able to macgyver something with a couple of doll brushes, hot glue and... Uhm... Stuff

Ameyal, my thoughts exactly! MacGyvering! That's a GREAT idea about the doll brushes, certainly I have a BUNCH of them laying around. But somehow…there's never one at hand when I actually NEED a brush?!?!   :biggrin:

The skullette IS the latch, so that is the problem.

Update is, I called the company (thanks Listie!) and while they don't sell to consumers, only B2B, they are going to send me a replacement skullette (I only asked for one, not three, lol). So I have one case that'll have both skullette latches, and then I can MacGyver on the other one!

That's good news! Even with just the two latches, it should still hold fairly well, I should think.

Good on the company for being willing to send replacements, too!

YES! One case is now complete (once I get the replacement skullette latch), so I just have to macgyver one case. It's kind of a weird design, these latches just pop right off.
