Thanks, Salli and Melissa for letting me know I'm not alone :blush:

Stupid past creeping up into the present.  Go away past!  Leave me be!

*goes back to playing dollies*

lol I actually dislike the name for a similar reason as well, what a coincidence! I'll probably rename mine Giselle.

As far as the 12 kids, i feel like maybe the cousins would fill in the rest of the spots. So the original 12 sisters had children, and those daughters each took their mother's place in the 12, and so on. I kinda don't see Mattel giving her the destiny to end up having 12 kids, but who knows...

I love the EAH stories/webisodes too! If you like Maddie, you'll LOVE books 1-3. Maddie is such an awesome character.

I've noticed some inconstistencies within the EAH world but nothing hugely annoying (yet). Yah, don't try to look at the stories too hard. I think with most of the characters there has been discussion about major plot holes and marital relations you just don't want to think too closely about ;) If you just enjoy it and take it with a grain of salt it's so much fun!

I agree with this :] . In the books specifically, I remember it being stated that details are often changed or altered slightly to avoid "questionable" aspects or plot holes. For example, the future Snow White can't marry the son of the Prince, or else she'd be marrying her brother. So instead, another "Charming" comes along and fills that role in the story. As Kara Zor-El mentioned, Ginger's mom had to "escape" from the oven, or else Ginger wouldn't have been born and the story may not have continued.

So on the one hand, no, i wouldn't overthink it too much. Although, it is sometimes fun to come up with ideas about how they get around those details ^____^.

i think i saw this mentioned earlier, but I also have noticed Target hiking up prices. I purchased a LD Apple, not paying attention to the price and assuming (my bad lol) she would be about $26, and she was more like $30. I tend to "hunt" Target, Walmart, and TRU, and to be honest i've seen the prices fluctuate so much I don't know who's the most reasonable anymore lol. I buy most of my dolls from Amazon, or hit the TRU sales. So far though, Amazon has been my best friend.

That, and doing the price match when I can.

OH JEEBUS i want that Holly!! I've been waiting anxiously for her to come out, she's just too adorable!!

I nabbed WTW Kitty and Apple, and I love them! Unforunately, Apple's head is... misshapen. So I haven't opened her yet. I've heard they are popping up at TRU, so I figure I'll wait until I find an Apple there

I've shipped Darling with Holly from the beginning because of this. Holly is super into her destiny and the idea of being rescued by a hero. Darling is super into the idea of being a hero. Holly also has a crush on Daring in the canon, but let's face it, Darling is definitely the most charming of the Charming siblings, so I'd rather have Holly fall for her instead :) I know it's never going to happen in the canon, but I still really love the idea.

THIS. All of this. My feelings exactly lol! This ship writes itself for me  :biggrin:

As far as "official" same sex couples, it's definitely coming, but i think we have a ways to go. As a whole, this issue in society has been making progress and becoming more "socially acceptable", which I only say in quotes because many of us accept it no problem, but as a widespread acceptance it still has a way to go. Mattel is a very big company, so they will always have certain groups they must "appease", as has been mentioned already. As someone who just keeps giving Mattel her money, I'd definitely like to see it become official!

Raven's Date Night outfit and hair look beautiful animated! It almost makes me want that 2-pack, even though the doll versions of Raven and Dex look no where near as nice as their counterparts from this episode

Me too! Seeing Raven animated is definitely making the 2-pack more appealing (to me personally). I think if I happen to pick one up, I'm going to try and mimic Raven's hairstyle from the webisode.

Loved the trees in the multihex! The idea of trees inside/part of a building is so magical!

I would say half my EAH dolls were bought on Amazon and half in stores like Target and TRU, and all my dolls from Amazon were great. I usually prefer to buy dolls in person so I can obsessively inspect their faces, hair, clothes, etc, but Amazon hasn't disappointed me yet. No eye wonk, no noticable defects. The only defect I've had from an Amazon dolls was sig Lizzie, who's knees are a little loose. But there's no way to tell that until she's out of the box so I don't blame Amazon. And honestly, it's not a huge deal for me. It does make posing her for pictures a little difficult, but i just work around it.

As far as defects overall, most of my dolls are in great shape. Legacy Ashlynn has a loose elbow, Lizzie has weak knees, and sig Holly lost a lot of plugs and has a slightly bent hand. So out of roughly 15 dolls, only 3 have noticable defects but they are minor for me.

I hope you have better luck in the future!!

Ah! She's very cute. I like her little mole. Still disappointed she isn't getting silvery pants/leggings or a sword but I'll survive. LOVE her platinum and blue hair, although she doesn't look anything like her siblings, lol.

I'm not really surprised she didn't get a sword, but thankfully that's an easy fix! I plan to make/acquire one for Darling, just for funsies ^_____^

the theme song is really catchy! Apple is an interesting character, I recommend the books because they delve into her motivations a bit and dig deeper into the characters in general. I personally like the visuals of Ever After High, the characters are lovely and I like the animation.

I am sure I am totally in the minority here, but I love that Kitty!  She just sparkles with mischief.

Kitty is my favorite in this line! I love her ears and tail. They remind me of her Legacy Day look!

the name "Fairest on Ice" in and of itself sounds like a figure skating show/theme. For that, these outfits look right. I agree, winter coats would be WONDERFUL, but i don't think that's what they were going for. Not that they *couldn't* do it. And who knows, maybe they will make a winter/snow collection later on, with pretty dress-style coats and cloaks and wonderfulness!!

maybe i'll attempt some coat-dresses and cloaks for the shop....

finally found a sig lizzie(first time i've seen her in the wild) so i had to get her.

also grabbed a duchess.

i still haven't seen either of them in the wild

does it apply only for the items currently available in your shop, or would it also be usable for custom requests? I might have to think about this ^^

not sure about custom requests yet, but it will work for future items posted!

I picked up Hat tastic Cerise the other day! Since the budget versions have been popping up all over the web, I decided to buy an OG one so that I can have the socks, etc. Plus, I liked her face. It's cute!

I LOVE this line! I love the snowflake motifs, and I hope the bottom of their shoes has an ice skate blade, that would be awesome!

I think they're cute. I just wish their makeup was varied. Like Ashlynn's looks like its from MB, Poppy is TtW and Duchess is sig.

Hmm.... Duchess' face looks a little different to me. Sig has darker lips and red eyeshadow, and in this photo FOI looks like she has brown eyebrows. I wonder why Poppy's face doesn't have a snowflake? The other two seem to have snowflake designs on their cheek, but I can't seem to see one on Poppy.

Welcome! Are you the same Alice behind Lambellina? I love those sweaters!

Yup, that's me!! I can't believe you've heard of me, i feel so popular (*・v・)
Haha yup, quite a few of us have purchased from you I think. Here's my Maddie collection with Mirror Beach in the sweater I got from you:

AWW Maddie looks so cute! Love the coord!!

I absolutely love your work, Alice. I've bought 8 different things from you now.  ^^; You're one of the favorite designers on etsy.  :blush: <3

Aww really? That makes me so happy to hear!! I hope you like the items coming out soon. I'm so slow because I just moved and my work space is... not the most conducive to competent productivity...>.>

Last thing I bought was ANOTHER basic Raven lol. Need her for a custom hat tastic, since there isn't an official one yet. I've been dying for a hat tastic version of her!

Bought some things from The Daughter Who Sews, Lambellina, and Haunt Couture Atelier on etsy for my girls today.  ^.^

I recognize your name! Hi!!! Thank you for ordering, you're so sweet! <3 (。⌒∇⌒)。

Aww noooo! That stinks, I'm sorry!

I would think Target will accept her as a return/exchange. If not, I've emailed Mattel before about replacing damaged dolls/items and they are pretty good about it. Duchess really is a beautiful doll, so if you aren't happy with this one, hopefully you can get her replaced. Wouldn't want you to miss out on such a lovely girl!
