Hi everyone :)
« on: March 27, 2018, 03:33:29 PM »
I'm a 33 year old Monster High collector from Maryland. I first got interested in the brand when I heard one of the characters was named Draculaura (I'm a Laura and also a vampire fan) so of course I had to get one, and then I saw a Frankie I loved, then a Skelita, and a Spectra, and after that I was hooked. Over the years I've expanded my collection to include Cleo, Venus, Scarah, and others but to my surprise my favorite has turned out to be Frankie (don't tell Draculaura I said that).

I've always been...unusual (to kindly paraphrase my childhood peers lol) with a love for the creepy and have been chronically ill since I was a teen so the embrace your weirdness/physical oddities message really resonated with me. That plus the imagination and creative detail of (most) of the Monster High offerings has made me a fan for life. And the articulation, it always frustrated me as a kid that my Barbies couldn't bend at the elbows.

I also have a few Ever After High dolls but so far have successfully resisted the lure to dive headlong into collecting them too. And I loooove those adorable little Monster High minis.

That pretty much sums it up. Very glad to be here :)

Welcome it is always so interesting who becomes our favourites. Torelei is my favorite, i donít watch the movies or anything so my pick is strictly on the doll appeal. I have a soft spot for Lagoona

Thank you, and it really is. I too pick solely based on the dolls. I'm actually kind of afraid to watch the movies at this point in case it turns out I can't stand their animated selves and it ruins the dolls for me. (I anthropomorphize like nobody's business.)
