Just bought the Gore-geous Accessories Honey Swamp on Amazon and way over-paid for a MIB Toralei on eBay.... but I had to have her!!!

At this point I'd just be happy for a release of the last dolls that got Amazon listings.

DITTO! I want those so bad!

I second using forceps. I got mine from the fishing section of a Wal-Mart. When I get frustrated I will dunk the head in hot water (microwave for about 3-4 minutes) and let that soften everything. I'll then scrap the inside of the head with the closed forceps which loosens everything nicely.

My old reroot thread

I've been rerooting again!
I started with a Jinafire. My mom gave me a bag full of WELL LOVED Monster High dolls for Christmas that she saved from the thrift store. This Jinafire was in there. Instagram photo here

Then I went on to a Dead Tired Frankie. I bought this one straight from Amazon. I've always wanted a pink Frankie and I have to say, she lives up to my expectations! My new favorite thing is time lapse footage of my reroots. I'm still perfecting the camera art, etc, so I promise it will get better. You can see the Frankie video here

And last I did a Vandala! She was also in the bag that my mom gave me for Christmas. She has a small orange/yellow mark on her right cheek, but it isn't noticeable with the hair in her face ^.^ Instagram photo here You can see Vandala's video here

Thanks for your time and watching the videos!

I just ordered Book Party Kitty from Amazon.... she was $19.99 but I missed her the first time around and eBay prices have been crazy lately.

There was a doll show in town today. Mostly older antiques or porcelain dolls, but one dealer had several older Barbies and Monster High/Ever After High. I ended up grabbing a MIB signature Jane Boolittle and a MIB signature Apple White for a total of $9. I wanted to grab more, but the seller was in a hurry to pack up to leave early. 

Again, I am SO thankful you've kept this going! I love looking back and seeing what we've said in previous years, but also reflecting on the past year.
What was the first EAH doll you purchased this year?
So according to Flickr, I had EW Blondie in 2016, and I can't find/remember a purchase before my July Amazon order of the rest of the Epic Winter dolls. Crazy!

How many EAH dolls did you add to your collection in 2017?
I purchased the rest of the Epic Winter set; some of the Back to School dolls, and the Castle Playset

What is your favorite EAH doll or playset purchase of 2017?
Probably the Castle Playset. I got it on Amazon for STUPID cheap.

What's your favorite EAH photo that you took in 2017?
I really didn't take many photos, but I guess this one:

Blondie Ella? by Raye Del Sol, on Flickr

What is your favorite memory of collecting EAH for 2017?
Falling back in love with it. I took a break for the first part of the year and just wasn't feeling it. I fell back in love with the dolls and I want to cry every time I think about the ones I'm missing from my collection and that this is probably the end of the line.

Is there anything else special you want to share about collecting EAH in 2017?
Nothing I can think of.

Do you have any EAH resolutions for 2018?
Finish my collection up with the missing pieces and start working on customizing projects. I LOVE rerooting, so getting back in to that again.

What are you most looking forward to from EAH in 2018?
Is this really the end? :cry:

Wow! I'm sorry I haven't been by to respond lately but these are some great options! Thank you everyone for posting! I love those Revoltech joints. I'll have to check that out for sure!

Got Back to School Holly and I posted a review on my website if anyone is interested ^.^

OMG, Alivia is adorable!! I want THAT doll!!!

My Tuesday Morning had the Welcome to Monster High Dance Cleo for like $6.99 so I had to get her. She's just too beautiful to sit in that crushed box on a shelf

I think mine is articulation as well. When I can't avoid it (Draculaura from the Dad playset) I rebody when I can.

Toys R Us had such a great clearance sale last week that with coupons I got the Deluxe (Deadluxe?) High School for $23. This got me thinking, how many high school playsets did they come out with? Did you ever get any of them?

I am SO shocked at the price of the 2-pack of the Fierce Rockers and GnB Jinafire. There are several dolls that I'm looking for from the older sets because there isn't anything really to search for that's new right now, and WHEW! The prices at some of these!!
