Monster Discussion / Monster High School Playsets
« on: September 17, 2017, 03:50:43 PM »
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?

Customs / Adding Articulation to Non-articulated Dolls
« on: August 13, 2017, 04:06:49 PM »
I'm guessing the Customs board would be the best place for this topic. Please forgive and feel free to move if not ^.^

I am seeking feedback on this design. I am trying to give some of my less articulated (cheap) dolls some articulation and this was the first design we came up with. It is two pieces of acrylic that are laser cut (our newest toy!) and then put into the doll's arm. The pegs can rotate within the arm and then hinge around each other. I know it isn't the most attractive design right now, so that is one reason I am seeking feedback.

Draculaura's Darkroom / Raye's Photos
« on: August 05, 2017, 03:01:02 PM »
It's been so long since I posted photos that my other album was locked  ^^;
You can see it here: http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,4333.0.html

I bought the EAH Castle Playset from Amazon for $33 and I have been having so much fun playing with it! Here are some photos:

Ashlynn can't decide which shoes she likes the best.

Apple really likes to brush Raven's hair.

There is nothing better than a soft blanket and endless YouTube videos to watch.

Blondie has a habit of "borrowing" other people's things. Think Ashlynn will notice if she only returns one shoe?

My husband made me a custom Apple White hanger for her clothes. I don't think we have any red plastic, so purple was the next best option.

Other things to know about me:
I love handmade doll clothing! My favorite Etsy sellers are Haunt Couture and the daughter who sews. I LOVED Lambellina's store when it was open, but sadly she isn't there anymore. I love anything big, poofy, girl, or lolita!

I LOVE bows! Seriously love some bows!

Customs / Customs I want to make/see made
« on: July 26, 2017, 11:14:43 AM »
Have you ever had an idea or seen something and just "I MUST HAVE A DOLL OF THAT!" I'd love for you to share those with us here. We can drool together and maybe brainstorm.

I just had this happen to me on tumblr. I have to make a doll of this, but I really don't know where to start. Which base should I use?

Monster Discussion / How do you display?
« on: July 25, 2017, 01:43:27 PM »
I just rearranged my EAH collection a little bit the other day and it made me curious, how do you arrange your collection? Is it by character? By line? Chronologically? Do you keep the ones you like most on the top? Or at eye level? How do you boo?

Draculaura's Darkroom / MH Rebodies
« on: July 24, 2017, 10:47:02 AM »
Greetings everyone! As this is partially a call for photos, I thought I'd put it here in the Darkroom.

I'm really interested in any reboot dolls that you rebodied to a different body either for articulation or to return to the G1 body. I'm REALLY interested in heads that were from non-articulated dolls that got new articulated bodies. All the heads I have are rather firm and I wanted to see and hear from those of you that have successfully rebodied. Thanks!

Found on darth-alinart's tumblr. I couldn't find a thread about it already.

Ever After High Discussion / So.... Did I miss a Blondie?
« on: May 01, 2017, 06:08:05 PM »
Hey everyone! How the heck are you?! It's been a long time since I've been here because honestly, life has just gotten in the way of collecting and such. I've been disconnected from the MH and EAH community for sometime, like really before Toy Fair even. Have I missed anything? I think the last Blondie I bought was either the blue haired Birthday Bash or Epic Winter. I don't remember which came first. So.... am I missing anything?

Monster Discussion / Let's Play: Name That Doll!
« on: December 31, 2015, 05:29:13 PM »
My aunt runs a thrift shop in our town, and she got her first MH doll in! This poor Clawdeen is missing her lower arms (aren't all donations that way  :) ) so she's going to sell her to me for $1. My question for you is which Clawdeen is it? This is my aunt's photo. Forgive the quality.....

Brags / Holiday Gifts Brag!
« on: December 21, 2015, 06:20:02 PM »
If you don't mind, I'd like to start a master thread for any holiday gifts we would like to brag about! Today is Yule and it appears that my husband is keeping to a mini-tradition. Three years ago I got my first Pullip on this date. Today, one of my Christmas gifts was delivered and neither of us could wait. She's just so pretty! Meet (one of my grail Pullips) Romantic Pink Alice!



So.... please also share your gifts for Yule, Christmas, etc ^.^

Brags / Biggest Brag EVER! (Not dollies)
« on: September 14, 2015, 08:12:30 PM »
Hey everyone! So I'm super super sorry for not being around a lot lately or answering PMs or shipping anything in any kind of timely manner, but...

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

 :whew: Sorry. Just had to get that out!
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

We are still in the process of moving in, so life is still crazy. We just got our internet hooked up today (after going without for almost 2 weeks!) and we are hoping to get our issues with the cable resolved tomorrow....  ( :rant: Comcast!!)

I get my own doll room and everything! I'm (hopefully) going to the store on Wednesday when I get paid to buy some custom shelves to start unpacking everyone. I just hate the thought of them all sitting in boxes!

So... yeah! Thanks for reading this! If we've shared care packages in the past, just send me a PM and I can send you my new address, or... you know... if you want to send me a house warming gift....  ^^; just kidding

Trader Support / Shipping woes. Feel free to add yours, too!
« on: June 19, 2015, 04:56:40 PM »
I AM BEYOND FURIOUS! UPS was supposed to delivery a little package today, and NO ATTEMPT WAS MADE! I have a personal UPS alarm system (my little Yorkie). No truck drove by this house today, and they are claiming that an attempt was made. Now it will be Monday or Tuesday until I can get the package, but if I’m at work, then tough cookies! They’ll send my package back. What the heck! UGH!!!

« on: June 15, 2015, 04:36:24 PM »
So.... after being forced to watch the first Tinkerbell movie by my niece, I have fallen in love with the Disney Fairies line. I love the movies; I LOVE the dolls.

Anyone else? Do you have the dolls? I'd love to see them!

Off Topic / Smart Dolls ~ Articulated Fashion Doll from Japan
« on: June 05, 2015, 05:45:33 PM »
Have you seen these?


Meet Mirai and Kizuna, the two Smart Dolls.

Quote
Designed, manufactured and assembled in Japan by a startup called Mirai, Smart Doll is a line of 60cm tall articulated fashion dolls designed by myself Danny Choo. The Smart Doll product is a fusion of art and both modern and traditional molding methods which enables us to create a stylish and fashionable line of fashion dolls for an international market.
The “SM” from “SMART” means “Social Media” while the rest means “ART.”

I recently purchased Kizuna and she just arrived today. I'm going to put my photos in a spoiler, so I can spam it up ^.^
