Title: A Doll A Day Challenge 2018
Post by: neon_jellyfish on January 01, 2018, 01:52:05 PM
Sooooo....

I loved oogling the last thread, and I think it would be awesome if this challenge became a tradition here at MHA. So, inspired by Scarlett and her photos, I'm going to give it a shot. I'm afraid that it will be a success if I keep this up for week, but hey, I'm never gonna complete a challenge if I don't even try. So here I am. I also thought that it would be nice to have photos of all my dolls, so I'm using it as an excuse to do this challenge. Let's see how far am I going to make it...

ETA: Here's the link to the 2017 challenge thread: http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,13456.0.html (http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,13456.0.html)

Day 1

(https://i.pinimg.com/564x/69/22/2a/69222af9aa9c0c04893d74c3d3ac9221.jpg)

Pullip Lunatic Queen, I call her Her Insane Majesty The Lunatic Queen Isadora Malvolia The Very First. She insisted on the 'Very First', although Alura was my first Pullip (but I'd get Her Insane Majesty as first, were she in stock back then).

OH and great work everyone! <3

WOW!! How did you make that?!? Sheís so pretty :0 did you go off a pattern? wow... I want you to know itís your fault Iím buying DotD lagoona now  :D

Aww, thank you! ^_^ I used DGRequiemís Ball Gown pattern for the dress (her patterns are amazing, btw; I definitely recommend them!). There are some little alterations, and the veil and beading were my own design. :) The petticoat (you canít see it in the photo, but itís giving the skirt some volume and support) was based off of a tutorial for a human-size petticoat... just scaled down, lol.

Oh, and thatís a great look for Clawdia! ^_^ Love the reroot!

just some pics of my reroot Rochelle :) she definitely needs to go organize her backpack.. and I need to organize my room... definitely..( $17 each if interested )
Rings: I normally make my own rings or buy tiny beads from the craft store. Q-tips for the pink one, silver one was a tiny bead, gold one was a bead as well.

Excellent start to the new year everyone!  I love seeing dollie photos, and the different things that people do with props & poses.

I "burnt out" last year doing the Doll a Day Challenge, so won't be participating daily this year.  However, I was thinking a Pic-a-Week, so I can still participate in the thread.

Plus I'll be here waving teeny-tiny pompoms at all the participants!!  I know how tough it can be to do daily photos (just thinking up ideas was the killer for me  :blush:).

Here's a photo of GiGi, who I bought just today!

(https://i.imgur.com/WmSZyuA.jpg)

Maybe tomorrow I'll try getting out someplace to take some nice outdoor photos of dolls, I hate doing photos in my bedroom due to the poor indoor lighting (I used flash in today's photo in an attempt to get it looking better), plus I can't really do many interesting photos in my own room.
Title: Re: A Doll A Day Challenge 2018
Post by: neon_jellyfish on January 04, 2018, 08:36:47 AM
eahseamstress - it is a beautiful piece. It's a spare dress she comes with. I usually keep her in her 'main' outfit, because I like that somewhat dark circus look, but I love this one, too. I can't wait to see your take on it!

Beatles - I like how girly and sweet your photos are. I think outside photos are great idea!

Day 4

(https://i.pinimg.com/564x/99/0e/8c/990e8ceb0d967dda18de6209b96028d1.jpg)

The ghoul who started it all. Sig Frankie was the first MH doll I've seen pics of, and I immediately fell in love with her. It was through her that I discovered Monster High. She was also the one to make me break my one-doll-per-character rule.

I decided to go army by army, so it's going to be Frankie for the next few days.

Oh, and thank you everyone for the kind comments! :)

Beatles: Congrats on your new dolly! ^_^ I love how her outfit shows off her tattoos and sculpted details!

modernmonsterhigh: Ooh, that reroot is beautiful! What type of fiber did you use?? And Iím always happy to see GR Clawdeen! Sheís one of my all-time faves. ^_^

neon: Thatís a gorgeous shot of Griselda... Her eyes look so vivid, itís haunting! Frankie looks very striking as well... I envy your photography skills!

Nemesis I love love love those barbies.. they remind me of Mulan for some reason lol. I use a few brands.. my Viperine and Clawdia reroot have one base color and I think they are red heart yarn? Or an acrylic yarn. Yeah they feel like that.. Rochelle has very soft hair which unravels easily. Itís held together by a thread twirling it around. I think it is either cotton or wool. Not sure. Sorry I wasnít much help :( Iíll see if I can find the brand by looking it up. I got rochelleís from Walmart. Iím sure the others are acrylic though. Yeah :) I want to get her in box though again since this oneís hair is poofy at the ends haha

So I went out to take photo today!

Do photos we post have to have been taken that day? I took a bunch of photos today of five different dolls, so I want to use some more that I took today for the next few days.
Title: Re: A Doll A Day Challenge 2018
Post by: neon_jellyfish on January 05, 2018, 12:42:19 AM
Awesome photos everyone! And thank you very much for your kind comments!

Secret to my photos (hehe, that sounds so silly) is photo tent and semi-professional lights. Me and my ex used to take photography courses back at college, he had the camera and I had tent and lights. When depression befell me, I lost my creative juices and my equipment got shifted to storeroom, but since I'm doing better and better, I decided to get back into my creative hobbies, and this challenge is part of it, So, my lights and tent got pulled out again, although I now have to take photos with my phone.

Do photos we post have to have been taken that day? I took a bunch of photos today of five different dolls, so I want to use some more that I took today for the next few days.

I think it should be OK. I was thinking about the same, because taking the tent and lights out and then put them back to their place every day is quite a kerfuffle, so I've been thinking about taking photos for upcoming week at once. I'll keep posting one every day, because even that is a challenge for me, but I'll take them in batches, as long as it requires tent or going to some distant place. Cute pic by the way!

Day 5

Post by: Scarlett on January 05, 2018, 01:30:08 PM
Lovely shots everyone - it's really nice to check this & see what's happened overnight  :P

beatles - you've reminded me that my WTW is still in her box & I really should take her out & play with the set.

neon - lovely portrait of Frankie.

Anyone - from the person who did this last year ( :P), I started out actually taking the photo each day, but that fell apart when I went on holidays in April, and also in July when I got the flu.  So I would then take a bunch of photos on the weekend and post them in the following week.  You can generally see when that happened -later in the year the "daily" photo would be a mini in the tree branch, and the more elaborate set ups would be done on the weekend
I don't have any fancy photo-taking equipment, my pics are all taken with my phone & whatever the ambient light is at the time

modernmonsterhigh - the yarn reroot of Viperine is lovely, I like how the yarn matches her snakes.
And Howleen is a little cutie - I have that one as I loved the hedgehog tshirt.

Beatles - Gooliope looks great sitting in the tree.


Okay, I've done my pic for the Doll-a-Week Challenge.

Thank you so much!! I actually mixed my acrylics to match the hair I was using ( from my grandma ) so I could paint a good peach color to match her hair :) I forgot to say I crocheted her sweater and used some black knit fabric and felt for her short joggers. And painted WW clawdeenís shoes white and attached a gem to the sneakers. Aand I remove her scales and gave her some ( VERY FRAGILE ) silver poseable wire with white glitter glue attatched. Wow that was a lot Iím sorry.. your photography skills are amazing!! Iím no good compared to the quality :0 and that airplane is adorable ^~^

Sweet 1600 Frankie. It's going to be Frankie for the rest of the week. Next week I'm going to document all my Cleos. I know it gets monotonous, but I'd forget whom I took pics of and who still needs to be photographed, so I'm doing it this way to help myself keep track of things.

 :biggrin: :biggrin:  I kept an excel spreadsheet last year with the name of the doll(s), the type of doll and a brief description so i could keep track of them all.  Otherwise (and you might remember the period I got 2 weeks ahead of myself  :blush:) I'd never have been able to know where i was up to.

I like how you are doing the charachters together - it's interesting to see the differences between the lines.

Beatles - nice outside shot!  (I really need to unbox my WTW Raven)

Post by: neon_jellyfish on January 09, 2018, 09:27:36 AM
Scarlett - that's an interesting idea, might try it out, especially as I don't have enough dolls to cover whole year (I mean, seriously, atm I only have 165 dolls, how unfortunate, waah waah!), so when I'm done with 'cataloguing', I'll probably make a spreadsheet similar to yours.

Is it all right if I try to join this late? I really wanted to try participating especially since I got a new camera for Christmas. It's just been a little crazy. I still have to learn about what all my camera can do. I bought a lightbox that I'm waiting to come in the mail. I am excited to do some more fun photography and I actually have other dolls besides MH I can photograph.

That said here is a shot of my Star Wars Sabine Wren

I LOVE the Freak du Chic line! Spring Unsprung was my favorite EAH line though I never collected EAH

So I really love the idea of using this challenge to sort of "catalog" your collection. I hope it's ok if I add a bit of commentary with my photos?

This was our first Christmas together married. We had very few decorations and no tree topper so I used this Holiday Barbie. I found her at the Goodwill and she is missing shoes and her earrings are broken but I just loved her dress and face. She's so elegant, my first "fancy" Barbie.

Neon- her bracelet is a rose gold hoop I found in the clearance near the jewlery section at Joanns. It fits nice and it was about a dollar something. I totally forgot  :biggrin: my dolls have random rings and bracelets all from tiny jewelry pieces! As for the boys, the rings I get will only fit their pinkie ( oh and only fits abbeyís pinkie too! )

I have to cheat today and use an old photo. I'm so sick I spent a couple hours at the hospital and the rest in bed. At any rate I was very proud of this photo shoot of my rehaired Ghoulia. I think once I post one photo of every doll (definitely don't have 365) I'll come back to her and do a new photo shoot to make up for cheating.

I decided to decorate my ďfor partsĒ operetta. I love operettaís doll so much.. I canít get enough of her signature :freak: I know I stored away my complete operetta but my other operetta is somewhere.. but here she is for now. She has both shoes, one stained red sock, her jacket ( missing one of the sleeves and kind of stained black, jeans were cut on a leg, and her guitar was missing except for the front panel, also.. her mask was missing and hair was let down. Missing hand. I thought why not give her some spotlight :)

Cleo has an elegant profile. I really appreciated the subtle makeup of the Dead Tired line.
Ghoulia is probably watching the movie adaption of her favorite comic book hero Deadfast. I really wanted to add in a tv prop but I didn't have the energy for crafting.

She looks more like sheís going to a glow rave rather than lunchtime at school lol. Love all the colors! Yeah I hate tinsel to be honest. It just frays and turns into a disaster.

I was head over heels when the news about this pack came out, and took me a while to get her because she was not sold here.

Modern - Draculaura looks adorable in that outfit with the flower crown!

Scarlett - I'm wonk-blind, too. It always takes me from several weeks to several months to discover really bad wonk, and if it's not too bad, I can't see it at all. Happyyyy!
NinaMarie - omigosh they're so adorable!
modern - Lala's flower crown looks amazing on her and I love Clawdeen in that outfit! I was always torn about her GR release, because I like her hair and make-up, but I'm not too crazy about her jumpsuit. Only recently I decided to get her, might redress her in something similar.

Post by: modernmonsterhigh on January 20, 2018, 03:44:32 PM
Nina- thanks for the kind words! This is one of the few ghouliaís i like. I despise most of her outfits to be honest. I could only deal with LND, DotD, Signature, Fashion pack, and her motorcycle doll. Ghouliaís hair is adorable in that photo!
Neon- thank you!! Yeah, clawdeen came nude for me. This outfit she has on is amazing, if I had an extra pair of draculaura boots she would be wearing those lol. Yeah I agree, the jumpsuit is ugly. If I get it Iíll probably turn it into a pair of leggings or shorts or something lol. Cleo looks gorgeous with blue hair! Iíve loved the two pack with her and deuce so much. I need to get it one day..
Scarlett- this is embarrassing, but I got a Gigi and it took me 3 months to realize she had the worst wonk in the history of wonks begore wiping her face off completely..
(https://i.imgur.com/VlBo8hR.jpg)
Itís the best day ever for me !! Iíve finally complete my dawn of the dance draculaura! Originally, I bought her for real cheap. But the only problem being her hat was missing:( I then bought an operetta that had her ring and she surprisingly came with a weird black hat keeping her hair together in a ponytail. I then painted it white and put it on lala calling it a day. Then, one day I found a lot with another dawn of the dance lala and her hat was in the accessory lot! I asked the person if they could split her and a holt up for me to buy separately and she agreed. Her mom appearantly took her phone and sold the entire lot to someone else for $5! ( note this lot had over 50 dolls ). I was pretty sad but it didnít bother me too much. The seller then messaged me back apologizing and said she had a few CAM dolls along with a Cleo and said she would sell her to me for real cheap. I then saw a picture of the CAM werewolf and dragon and saw the werewolf shoes! I thought they would look amazing on a clawdeen and so I said yes. She then said she would include any accessory from the lot for the misunderstanding. And so, I took the hat ( over newspaper club tights ) and today it finally arrived! The string was broken so I had to restring it. Luckily, I had some very thin elastic and I used it :) then I spray painted a black stand and brush a very very pretty pink ( not showing well in photos ). So thatís the story! ( whew, ) Iím planning on locking her in a display case and never touching her again lol. I pretty much only wanted her and some duplicates because of how pretty she looks with dark makeup and lipstick. After noticing lagoona looks really pretty with it too, I am trying to get all the characters I can with their darkest makeup. After rereading this I can include Iím crazy.
Hereís some more pics!!

That's a nice story about ompleting the Draculaura.  Its great when you can get the doll to look (almost!) exactly how you envision them.

NinaMarie - nice pairing of the two zombies.  I love Ghoulia (she my 2nd favourite after Rochelle, but I sadly dont own any dolls of her :( )

My photo this week is Becky out to lunch with me and a friend this weekend.  The business card of the restaurant is the perfect menu-size.  I "messed-up" and didn't take the right doll tho.  I should have taken Lottie (who is an Alice in Wonderland), as the place was called The Hatter and the Hare, and everything was Alice-themed!!

So here is something a little different. A Disney Princess Jasmine head on a fakie Cleo body. Just a fun little experiment.

Decided to take a pic of one of my many operettas ( another one is on its way ). I love it when I take her hair down and itís just flawless curls :0 also, her signature is great for getting more jeans and a nice skullette ring along with a nice fitting purple top!
Neon- Cleo looks beautiful!! I love her.
Nina- yay!! A new doll! I actually thought it was her actual body before reading. Love the outfit with her. Jasmine would definitely fit cleoís wardrobe.
scarlett- wow! Thatís so cool :0 where I live we have hatter cupcakes and a wonderland themed coffee shop! Love the tiny card  :)

Inspired by nassib here are my two frightmares. I REALLY wanted to love the frightmares. Centaurs are a favorite mythical creature of mine. In the end the only ones who really called to me were the two deer-like ones.

I think that Cleo is beautiful. I love signature and 2.0 Cleo, but my only grudge with them would be their tinsel. This pretty reboot dolly has that golden hair that mimics tinsel awesomely so she can keep the softness of her hair and still sporting that royal look with golden highlights.
Her face reminds me a bit of Scaris Cleo who I also like :)

@ModernMonsterHigh
Nice pictures!
I like that Clawdeen a lot. I believe that's the only one with black hair streaks. My favorite blouse the one with a wolf picture :D

@NinaMarie
Pretty frightmares!
I've tried to like them more also but the head proportions, faces and poor articulated bodies don't help much. Still I liked several enough to get. The ones from your picture are my favorites, although I don't think I have any picture of them. Maybe a general with other dolls. I need to get back to taking pictures
Title: Re: A Doll A Day Challenge 2018
Post by: neon_jellyfish on January 24, 2018, 10:14:30 AM
modern - super cute Howleen! And Clawdeen looks great in Operetta's stock. Sig Oppie's outfit is great, anyone can wear it and look good.
Nina - I'm the same with Frightmares. These two are my faves (I don't have the icy one though, it's easier to stumble upon golden mine than Frightmares here), and I also like the ghost-goat.
nassib - she is beautiful! I felt really bad about forgetting to take pics of her. I even said sorry to her! But I can't help it, to me she doesn't have the same presence as G1 Cleos. But that doesn't mean she isn't awesome, and I definitely agree with you on the golden streaks in place of tinsel. I hate tinsel and I think light streaks are much closer to her original design. She's also one of two reboot dolls that made it into my collection, and that itself deserves praise!

Day 24

(https://i.pinimg.com/564x/16/d4/c0/16d4c0fd45b1e4152adcfe4094103642.jpg)

Sig Ghoulia. I originally planned to go from biggest armies to small armies to dolls of which I only have one or two releases, but I decided to continue with Ghoulia instead, because Cleo and Ghoulia are my favorite besties. I don't like many Ghoulia dolls (I don't like red), I only have two and I'm planning to get two more, but as a charatcer, I absolutely love her and I miss her. I'm so glad she got her not-really-SDCC release!
Title: Re: A Doll A Day Challenge 2018

Ghoulia is so awesome. I can't wait to get my hands on the fancy almost-SDCC  two pack.

I picked up this Fashionista #66 as Walmart for $4. It mostly because I love her dress and hoped it might fit my broader chested 80s & 90s girls. Nope they are still too big for even curvy clothes. Not sure what I'm going to do next with her. She's cute and will chill with my older girls for now.

Ghouliana Jones, ready for another adventure! I love her. Cleo from Origins pack is such a fancy and bold doll, but Ghoulia keeps pace with her just fine! I only have surplus photos of this Ghoulia, so I'll post them here instead of my photo thread.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Neon - that Ghoulia is so fierce! Your photos capture her sassiness! I love that her outfit has actual buttons and her pants a pocket, instead of everything painted on. My big complaint is her earrings are the same as the date night 2 pack.

Disney Store Pocahontas I recently thrifted. I just loved her face. Her legs are just this weird plain rubber. They don't bend at the knees. Time will tell if I re-body or do some sort of leg replacement surgery.

Post by: modernmonsterhigh on January 25, 2018, 11:14:38 PM
neon- Love ghoulia. Ghoulia isnít my favorite as a character though. I think she is too plain. But her outfits are my favorite out of all characters. I just bought her big fashion pack and Iím dying over the red and black drop pants. If it was pink it could have been a cupid fashion pack or IHF
nassib- yeah I think it is! Iím lucky to have two of her! I just need to buy her IHF outfit loose. I think clawdeen looks best like this. Iím not a fan of most of her dolls due to the hairstyle. When she has long hair itís slmost always glue seepage and when she has shorter hair it doesnít look very nice due to random colors in a natural hair color. However black makes her look gorgeous :0 I wish howleen let her hair go natural for a day..

Hereís my ghoulia lol. She is in rough shape. Her head has staining and her bangs wonít go down no matter what. Iím currently using acne cream to get rid of the red stain. Iím probably going to customize her into a danganronpa character :)
Hereís a pic of my operetta too! her hair is a disaster though.
Title: Re: A Doll A Day Challenge 2018
Post by: neon_jellyfish on January 26, 2018, 10:00:48 AM
nassib - thanks! It is a mismatched outfit, isn't it? I think Ghoulia came up with some scientific way to wear it and look so chic. I've been thinking about getting her some pants to go with her blouse and some top to go with her pants, then she could mix them as she likes.
Nina - thank you! I don't have date pack Ghoulia (yet, she's one of the two I mentioned I want to get), so I don't mind those earrings, but I might repaint them or something. Acid green maybe. Congrats on successful thift! And that top is adorable!
modern - I usually don't like colors on Ghoulia's outfits, but I would wear a lot of those designs in different colors. Like her sig pants and the dripping pants from the big fashion pack, also the extra dress from classroom release and Scaris outfit. I just don't like red, so that's why I passed on most Ghoulias. I love her FF release though, not very Ghoulia-style, but I think she looks adorable as a vampire. And her Dead Tired jammies are so cute!
Oppie's hair look wild indeed! Good luck with customizing Ghoulia. Which release is she, by the way? I don't remember Ghoulia with this kind of lipstick.

I'll continue with Deuce and Nefera and the probably with Clawdeen.

Despite trying to stay away from thrift stores I had to go donate some bags of old clothes and of course since I'm there I might as well go browse... I have a terrible addiction.. So today I picked up this gal, fashionista #59 for 99 cents. I really love her hair! And here I am again with another modern Barbie. I mean to be firm on no dolls without articulation unless 80s or 90s Barbies. I'm so weak.

modern - Wilhelmina's dress does indeed give off victorian vibes, although it's not Lolita style like Celestia's outfit, it's fitted at hips and it has a beautiful train. Bye Clawdeens! Have a safe trip!

Nina - three-eyed ghoul is such an awesome CAM. I have her parts, but we never got the torso packs, so she's incomplete, sigh. Someday, when I catch up with my collection, I'll probably try to get that pack, because I also love the bee, skeleton and the sea monster one.

Modern- Yeah, I do agree. Celeste has a kind of mix of them both, but she had envisioned a dream of living in a Victorian style mansion with 100 vampire servants. maybe thatís where I got the idea :p I kind of want to make one for my nude Cupid :3 ( oh and that little curl on clawdeen is ADORABLE! )

neon - I am super glad I purchased that torso pack! Not having a matching torso for my harpy really bugs me and I know it would have driven me nuts with the other ghouls. I initially wasn't all that interested in Clawdeen because she was everywhere but I've grown to love her for the same reasons you just shared. I also happen to love purple and green as a color combo which seems to be her favorite as well lol.

modern - 3 eyed ghoul has my favorite outfit combo!

I'm loving all the different versions of the characters, especially as I don't have many Monster Highs - and a lot never made it out here either, so I'm being introduced to them all.

This week's photo actually belong to Chris.  he started collecting them just before Christmas, and has 7 at the moment.
The Flash is his current favourite, and his coincidentally his newest addition (his favourite is always the newest one  :biggrin:)

Save Frankie Clawdeen. I didn't like her at first, I found her super-cheap and got her as a bait doll, because I want a Clawdeen with white hair, but she grew on me and became full-fledged member of my collection.

That has happened to me several times. This dolls are sneaky that way  ^^;

modern - I love Werewolf Sisters Clawdeen's hair! She looks so sassy! I passed on most FF releases, but generally speaking, I loved how G1 slimbox dolls could surprise me with their quality. Doesn't happen anymore...
Nina - thank you! Now to get my grabby hands on that fashion pack... I think that this IM will look awesome with a new wig!
Scarlett - Flash looks dangerous with that milkshake.
nassib - I know, right?

I recently got HTC Clawdeen for her clothes, though I haven't debox her per space but she's gorgeous and you're Clawdeen looks amazing combining her purple her with that dress.
And your 2.0 is so pretty! What a beautiful picture. She's one of my favorite Clawdeens also

@Nina
Taiga's wig looks so perfect for her! It does looks like snow! <3

@modernmonsterhigh
Cupid's hair does look like cotton candy. I wish she had received another release before moving to EAH.
I love Venus pose in your picture :)

To round off my CAM group is my queen of CAMs the gorgon V. Her full name is Vipera Graecia but gorgon families tend to boringly use the same name variations so to stand out she goes by one initial.  As one of my first CAMs I fell in love with her scales, her snake eyes, and serpentine face. I repainted her lips and made her signature hair color be red. She is my first muse & model.

Another one of my operettas. I had picture day operetta in box but I took her put to restyle her hair. It was kind of fun brushing the gel out and ruining it :p I think I like how I restyled it.
neon- Yeah clawdeen was really the odd one out of scarier reef. Id Iíd love the color in her hair though
nina- she is adorable!! I have a dragon cam and I too love her scales and tattoos. Maybe I should give her some hair one of these days! Love her dress. It really brings out her eye color ^.^

After a long hesitation I finally got Ghouls Rule Clawdeen. I love her head, I don't love her outfit. I don't exactly know how I'm going to redress her, I need to go through all my dolly stuff to pick something for her or maybe make something, so that'll be fun.

modern - thank you! I like how they experiment(ed) with Clawdeen's hair and I love purple, so I needed at least some of her purple-haired dolls. I love Ashlynn's shoes on Honey! And Oppie looks very classy and very 50's. Btw, you totally Operetta-enabled me! I didn't have any Oppies because of her red hair, but she looks so gorgeous in your photos, I couldn't resist and ordered Killer Style Opppie. I'm also planning to get Picture Day and maybe one more, not sure which yet.

Nina - unyuu! She looks so sweet with that hairstyle and outfit!

Scarnival Skelita. What I like about mine is that if you look at her eyes from her right she has the appearance of side glancing eyes. From the left major walleye.

@Neon_jellyfish
That lavander hair on GR Clawdeen looks so beautiful on your picture.
Her stock made her less attractive so I dared passed on her at the time. I'm so ready to buy her now. I've seen her potential a redress away in so many pictures. I'll need to save for her
May I recommend Black Carpet Operetta? For me she looks very elegant, although perhaps she looks more classy in her Coffin Bean version


@NinaMarie
The crochet dress that you have in your Skelita has always been one of my favorites, and it suits her dearly! Loved the picture!
Also, your Scarnival Skelita has a cute story behind that side glance.
I would believe it to be a repaint if you hadn't told us. She looks sweet and reflexive, it makes a more dynamic picture.

@modern
Wow! I love how Operetta looks on that kitty fashion! Beautiful pictures :)

Yay!!! Iím so happy  :biggrin: my swap gift arrived yesterday ( from Nina ) and she included a wig! Originally, this was a CAM werewolf and dragon. Sadly though, the CAM werewolf was missing major things like a leg and an arm and hair. I was about to try and sell her and dragon on eBay for cheap but I realized I still have a left Skelita hand from a hand and arm lot and a broken operetta leg. I hot glued operettaís leg in place and just attatched skelitas arm since it fit perfectly! originally, the shirt was for draculaura but it was a little too purple and blue so I gave it to the werewolf! The pants had a rip but I easily repaired it and then gave her extra shoes and a wig! ( I honestly donít know what to do with cattyís boots anymore lol ) I used to despise wigs and think that it was just yarn hot glued to a head. Nina showed me that wigs are so much more! You can even swap them :0 Iím currently making a wig for my old clawdeen head. She has a crack in her head and no ears so itís perfect! She also gave me a little hat I gave to my extra howleen.

Nina - beautiful shot! I wanted Scarnival Skelita, but she never got here and importing her internationally is too expensive...
nassib - wow, I knew about die-ner set with Lala, but I had no idea they made one with Oppie! She's a real beauty, she looks like some film noir femme fatale! Currently I'm leaning towards Dance Class Operetta, I really like her face-up (and she's possible to find in my country).
modern - thank you! GSR Clawdeen is super-fun. Purple werewolf mermaid - I simply had to have such doll in my collection, lol. Ash looks awesome in that dress. And congrats on new wig and resurrected werewolf CAM!

Day 41

Rosamunda Wilhelmina von Lebkuchenburg, aka Pullip Wilhelmina. More pics are in my photothread (http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,15012.msg299911.html#msg299911).

I also redressed GR Clawdeen. For now she's wearing skeleton CAM's dress, Zomby Gaga's fishnets, and werewolf (?) CAM's shoes. But I want to complete my CAMs at some point, so Clawdeen will have to get another outfit. I'll be going for something black, because I like how it lets her purple hair shine. I think DGRequiem's Cold Shoulder pattern will look awesome on her, but I first need to sew something for my EAH girls from patterns I already have, so this will take a while (I'm also a complete newbie in sewing, so I progress rather slowly).

Art Class Skelita. Skelita did not get much variation in makeup so I loved this release. I was super happy to find her second hand but she has the worst gluehead I've ever encountered. Her head is super heavy and her hair is greasy, sticky AND crunchy.

So sorry I've been neglecting this thread for the last few days.  Everyone's doing wonderfully with their photos, and such a variety of dolls / redresses / other fun stuff that I can't make a comment for everything.

Nina: love the Skelita, even if her hair is greasy AND crunchy  :biggrin:

Neon: Whilelmina is beautiful - look forward to seeing some outdoors shots when the weather cooperates.

The wings and the collar are both separate pieces. The wings (you can move them back and forth) are on contraption attached to her back at shoulders and waist. The collar is separate from dress, so you can take it off and leave the wings on or vice versa, or you can attach the wings to entirely different doll, and so on. Do you need photos of the pieces?

CE Draculaura.
I love her so much. I think the new CE releases are awesome dolls for 30 bucks, but I wish they stayed 50-buck-dolls and kept the bigger bodies with chest joint, and that dark, elegant look. I don't want to belittle the new ones, because the reason I dislike them isn't quality issue, just my personal taste, but they just don't click with me. When I got this Lala, I dreamed of having all my fave ghouls in this beautiful form, I was hoping they would eventually made CE versions of everyone, and I'm kinda sad they changed the concept after just one doll (mainly that they abandoned the CE body, I really like it). Enough melancholy! I'll post Lala army tomorrow and then I have a birthday haul to take pics of!

The CE Draculaura is one that I wished I'd bought at the time.  But I thought that $X was too much for a doll (which makes me laugh now I've started collecting Pullips which are 2-3 times that price  :biggrin:)

The 2 superhero MH are great - I didn't realise they had done a Clawdeen in the line (I don't really follow the MH lines very well.)
(And Black Panther was ecellent - we thoroughly enjoyed it, and the pics are a great was to honour it).

I need more multi-limbed dolls, Wydowna took my breath away when she was first revealed. At the time, I never imagined spending so much money on a doll but I simply had to have her just in case they never released her again.

@Neon_jellyfish
I love your Abbey pictures. I've always liked Abbey as a character as she is both strong, feminine and very straightforward. And everything translated perfect to her doll.

@Nina
Cute picture of Wydowna! I was so happy with her release. I felt Mattel was taking a great risk daring to create such an exquisite creature within their dolls line but it was so worth it!
I love that in your picture her facial features are clear and very distinguishable. It's hard to achieve that on monochromatic dolls <3
