Off Topic / Re: The handwriting on the wall

I've been told my handwriting is very bad, but i've seen worse than mine (in my opinion). :P I think most of the time it's legible, but it certainly doesn't look nice.

A friend of mine was mysteriously ill for over a year and she went through several doctors before they could figure out she had a rare disorder. She's still not 100%, but now that they know what it is, it's a lot more treatable. Or it could be that your body is still trying to right itself after being wonky for so long. Whatever the case may be, I hope you feel better soon!

I've heard of at least one person filling the head itself with rubber bands. It would probably create less room for wobble.

I think mattel's quality control is slipping a bit--my electrified silvi had her legs fused together out of box and I had to cut them apart. I hope whatever happens that you'll have a nice clawdeen! :)

I love that toralei! Her hair is amazing and i love the little under-eye spots on her makeup! Also, I'm really happy that crimped hair seems to be making a comeback. I didn't appreciate it enough on my dolls when it was in vogue. :P

She'll definitely be my third reboot doll.

I found a freaky fusion operetta at Savers the other day. Unfortunately, one of her knees had been snapped off, but she was wearing her original dress, necklace, belt, and tights, so she was in good enough condition that I decided to pick her up anyway. I gave her a somewhat rag-tag knee replacement, but she displays pretty nicely with her tights on! :P

Monster Discussion / Re: How do you guys name your dolls?
« on: April 02, 2017, 08:10:38 PM »
For any character dolls like Disney or Monster High/EAH dolls, I usually call them their original name. I've done that with dolls since I was a child--it just felt weird for me to change their names if they have them already! I have an american girl doll in storage that I named "A.G." back when I was about 8 (A.G.....american girl. I was sooo creative :P)

I do name "nameless" dolls like barbie fashionistas or CAMs/doll hybrids, though. I named my witch CAM "Blair" and my Novi Star/MH hybrid "Ophelia". :P It depends on how i'm feeling at that moment, but I usually take ages to come up with something until it just pops into my head.

Faceups!!!

I'm trying to use this method I've seen on youtube with watercolor pencils/msc that my sister used on her customs, but I just....i hate the layering process. It's so tedious to wait between coats, and it's gotten to the point that my sister is tired of seeing the doll she bought for me to customize without a face and just started blushing it today. I wish I wasn't so impatient.

Also, I second the sewing. Doll-scale sewing is soooooo difficult.

The last doll I picked up was either a handless dawn of the dance clawdeen (she had arms...just not hands???) or my electrified silvi timberwolf. I think Silvi would look REALLY cool under black light!

I also got a TON of monster high/barbie clothes really cheap at the thrift store! I was pretty excited about that. I think I got 2-3 full outfits!

I've been smitten with re-ments since I was collecting figmas back in '09! I actually have three sets--one is a sanrio pompompurin furniture set, and the other two are miniature food items (my favorites)! They're the perfect scale for a lot of fashion dolls!

I didnt even know the second wave of fashion packs were released! I'll have to keep an eye out for them...none of the walmarts near me seem to have fashion packs, and only one TRU near me carries the first wave :\ no sign of the accessory packs either...maybe i'll order them later.

Off Topic / my chocoholic dog...
« on: October 27, 2016, 02:26:29 PM »
....ate a big hole in my wallet. Last weekend, I made brownies and went through our stock of baking supplies. I threw out a box of expired double chocolate chip brownie mix and forgot to take it outside (my dog has a particularly irritating habit of breaking into our "dog proof" garbage can and eating everything inside it).

and, naturally, she ate the whole flippin' bag. I was out of the house when it happened, and she managed to drag it into my room and got cocoa powder and plastic all over my carpet without anyone who was home noticing.

She barfed a chocolate nightmare ALL OVER my car seat when I took her to the vet, and they insisted on keeping her overnight for observation since she had been digesting it for some time before I took her there.

$500 dollars later.... -_- she's thankfully ok and has since made a full recovery, but I'm unemployed. So, it was quite irritating that a dumb mistake like leaving something so tempting and dangerous in the trash cost me so much money.

Ironically, if I were home and caught her in the act, I might have been able to give her the treatment the vets did for about a tenth of the cost--I have a first aid for pets book sitting on my coffee table with the correct dosage of ipecac syrup for dogs and the correct type of activated charcoal to use.  :facepalm:

anyone else have pets with an inexplicable attraction to food that could literally kill them? This isn't the first time she's gotten into chocolate.

Just one? This is hard....

Probably New Hampshire. I really like what I've seen of the east coast, and I'd like to go somewhere new--my parents have been there, and they said it was beautiful. I need to get away from the city every once in a while.

Off Topic / Re: Can you recommend a decent Christmas candle?!
« on: October 27, 2016, 02:05:24 PM »
Cranberry Chutney by Yankee candle is one of the ones we use a lot in the late fall through winter, especially around the holidays--but that's mainly because we eat cranberry sauce on thanksgiving (USA) and sometimes on christmas. I'm quite partial to fruit scents in general since most others tend to aggravate my asthma, but you may like the ones that smell like cookies or whatever you may associate with christmas. :)

Off Topic / Re: The autumn leaves drift past my window...
« on: October 27, 2016, 02:01:29 PM »
I voted summer, even though I spent a good part of my last summer inside :P

I'd spend more of it outside if I wasn't so delicious to mosquitoes--I seem to be a magnet to them. But I really like laying out in hammocks or beach cabanas and taking a nap in the middle of a hot day. My actual favorite time of year is May, followed by September--I like the transitions between summer and cooler seasons best.
