Seasonal Doll Displays
« on: June 11, 2018, 10:43:12 AM »
It's summer where I live. That means the warm weather dolls (swim class, Fright seers) are coming out of storage and the colder weather dolls (Epic Winter, maybe Gloom &Bloom, Scary Tales) are going to sleep until September.

I find that rotating them helps when I'm trying to avoid buying. Do you rotate dolls by season or at all? Or do you dress them for the seasons? Do you get the feeling that any of your dolls feel too hot/cold depending on outfit and time of year?

(I worry about how some dolls like Clawdeen and Cleo feel in cold, but don't think cold bothers other dolls like Abbey or Rochelle or Skelita or Robecca)

That is a really cool way to display a collection! I've only just this year started to display my own dolls, but my mother owns a Patti Playpal-esque doll made by the Allied Eastern Company and for decades my family has ensured she's been appropriately dressed for the weather....albeit mostly in clothing that were fashionable in the late 80's/early 90's. XD

There are certain dolls I always keep on display, but I have one shelf dedicated to the Monster High seasonal dolls. Right now, my Skull Shores, Ghouls' Getaway, and Shriek Wrecked dolls are displayed. I set them up with an old Barbie pool playset and they look awesome!

During September I'll display my school-themed dolls, such as Student Disembody Council and Freaky Field Trip. In December I put out my Sweet Screams dolls, because for some reason they remind me of Christmas. And in the Spring months, my Gloom and Bloom dolls get a turn on my shelf.   

I swap out my My Little Pony shelf, too. And as for my American Girl dolls, I dress them for the particular season or holiday and decorate their dollhouse accordingly.

If I had the room, I'd be making a ton of seasonal stuff for them- especially salt dough pumpkins. I can't wait to have room for enough room for a FdC and Shriekwrecked setup.

I don't do seasonal displays, but I do change the outfits of Kirsten and now Nanea, my AG dolls. They wear their meet outfits in the winter and spring, Kirsten wears her summer outfit starting in June and keeps it until late August, when school starts. She and Nanea will both wear their school outfits and go back to their meet outfits in October. :biggrin:

My plan for Halloween this year was to buy a bunch of cheap, doll-sized decorations at Target and/or Walmart. I never even thought about making pumpkins, but that's a great idea. I might try that once Halloween rolls around.

I totally know what you mean about not having space for displays, that why I only have one seasonal shelf! :)

When spring starts, I put my Spring Unsprung Cerise on display. For may, I'll bring out my GSR Frankie. Other than that, I just rotate new dolls in when I notice that I haven't displayed them in a while.
