Hello there everyone!
« on: February 14, 2018, 05:55:10 PM »
Hey everyone! I'm so excited to be here!

My name is Miguel, I'm a 27 year old art student from Panamá.

I've been reading around the forums for a while now, on and off, but never managed to make an account or participate, which is a shame because this forum seems full of lovely people. So I finally decided to become a part of the community, specially because MH and doll collecting has become one of the most fun hobbies for me.

I've been collecting dolls for less than 6 months, actually! I had always been interested in MH dolls, but the prices in my country were ridiculous (think $40 and up for basic dolls, and over $70 for playsets) and it wasn't until last year that apparently all kids decided to forget about the girls and the mansters, so all the stores literally dropped their prices to 2, 3, and 4 dollars.

As you can imagine, I was coming home with at least 5 dolls a week. In less than 6 months I own over 50+ dolls and I couldn't be happier.

The reason why I collect MH dolls is mostly because I've always been into dark themes and gothic motifs. I love anything to do with the old classic monsters, so MH was just right up my alley.

In fact, my thesis project is a doll line inspired by Monster High!

In regards to my collection, I'm more of a "one of each" kind of guy, and I only want to collect the ones that really speak to me. My favorite line has to be Freak du Chic.

My favorite Ghoul is C.A Cupid, and my favorite Manster is Neightan Rot (With Clawd as a close second)

I hope to be able to share some of my art, opinions and experiences with you all!

Thanks guys!

I'd love to expand on it, I'm working on the character designs a the moment, but as soon as I can I'll share more on them for sure on an art thread so you can give me your opinions and thoughts!

Welcome what fun to have dolls incorporated into your thesis. I am doing coarse streamed for my masters but if I was doing thesis route it would not be nearly so creative or fun!
