Customs / Polyester Halloween wigs for doll hair?
« on: March 19, 2018, 05:02:26 PM »
Quick question rerooting gurus! I have several old polyester wigs from Halloween and want to try using them to reroot a doll or two. Can this stuff be boil-flattened or will it stick out from the doll's head like she's got her finger in a light socket forever?

Site Support / Banned on mobile
« on: August 19, 2017, 09:42:55 PM »
I was shocked to get a banned message when trying to view the forum on mobile this morning. I'm apparently not actually banned, but I'm still getting the message on my phone. I've tried everything I could think of up to shutting the whole thing down and starting it up again and no dice. Is my phone maybe getting caught in a blanket IP ban for AT&T IPs? That's the only idea I've had so far for what's happening.  :cry:

Off Topic / Make It Pop!
« on: February 27, 2016, 05:56:38 PM »
Check these cuties out!

I ran into these today at TRU. Have you guys seen them? They're kinda cute. I think they use the Winx doll bodies. Some of the shoes are definitely Winx recasts, at least.

I'm confident that this doll's purple boots are the same as the silver ones that came on the Bloom doll included with the stage set, at least.

Off Topic / I have a new kitty! (oh NOES!)
« on: October 23, 2015, 06:25:00 PM »
After looking, and looking, and looking some more, I have finally brought home a new kitty to take over as Queen of the House. Finn is NOT pleased. I've got the new kitty isolated (she is much smaller than he is - didn't realize by how much until I brought her home) so that they don't run into each other much, but oh yes... momma's boy Finn is QUITE put out that this unthinkable thing has happened to him. He's been beside himself without a playmate, but he apparently still wanted to be an only child.  :biggrin:

I have a pheromone plugin going to try to keep them as calm as possible, but does anyone have any further suggestions for integrating the new kitty into the house beyond that and keeping them separated for at least 24 hours?

Customs / Yeolume rebody?
« on: August 16, 2015, 06:33:40 PM »
Awhile back, I found a Yeolume doll for just $25 at Tuesday Morning. She's SO cute, but her issue body was deplorable. I put her on a Serial Experiments Lain "action doll" body, and it's an improvement, but her head's loose and floppy (even after I added a bunch of rubber bands to the neck peg), and it's so heavy she can't stand up well (if at all).

Has anyone else rebodied one? What's a good choice for an affordable new body? I've read online that Obitsu bodies are the way to go, but I'm worried I'll get the wrong color or something. I've also read about people putting Yeolume on Pure Neemo bodies. I definitely want to keep her looking childlike, rather than put her on an adult-type body. I don't know a lot about these kinds of dolls, though. I need your expertise, doll customizers!

Here she is right now:

Brags / LitD Nikki!
« on: May 26, 2015, 04:53:27 PM »
Found her for $6 today in Walmart! I got her and a couple of the new accessory packs. I wish her outfits weren't both one piece dresses, but she's still super-cute!

Customs / Polypropylene doll hair?
« on: May 19, 2015, 06:09:13 PM »
So while digging through my storage area, I discovered I have a wealth of curly doll hair that probably originally came from craft stores or Walmart. The bags describe this stuff as Polypropylene curly hair. Does anyone have any experience using this stuff? Is it worthwhile to try rerooting with, or should I toss it in the bin?

Customs / Star Wars Custom:Hera Syndulla (DONE!!??)
« on: March 04, 2015, 06:31:15 PM »
Okay, I think I'm ready to call Hera v.1.0 done! I've spoilered all my previous babbling here, since it's from WAAAAY back when this project first started. Anyway, here's a taste of the "finished" doll. More pics in the newest post!

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Brags / $30 at Walmart (Mostly Barbie)
« on: February 14, 2015, 09:01:16 PM »
So here's what I got for about $30 and some change at Walmart this past week...

Ashlynn and Hunter were just $10, so they were a super find.

Off Topic / Have you ever written a fan letter?
« on: September 29, 2014, 06:42:56 PM »
So I found a site ( that has addresses for sending fanmail to actors/athletes/etc., and I'm really really wanting to send a letter to someone. Well, a couple of someones, but one in particular - a man who was an actor on a tv program that was my favorite thing in the world as a child and which I still hold dear even with how campy it was. ANYWAY! So, I'm wanting to write a nice little note to go with my request for an autograph, and I'm having trouble composing myself enough to compose it.  ^^; So has anyone else ever written to a celebrity before? How did you keep from going full embarrassing-fandork?

Off Topic / WARNING: Change your eBay passwords!
« on: May 21, 2014, 06:06:47 PM »
eBay announced today that it was hit by a massive cyber attack and user passwords may be compromised. Supposedly, no financial data or Paypal passwords have been stolen. Now is an excellent time to change your eBay passwords, and if you like feeling extra-safe, you might consider changing your Paypal passwords too. (Remember, it's a bad idea to have your passwords be the same!)  :)

Off Topic / Bob's Burgers
« on: May 13, 2014, 07:43:02 PM »
Let's talk Bob's Burgers! What's your favorite episode? Who's your favorite character?

I can't really decide between Tina and Louise, but Bob and Linda are currently my favorite tv couple.  :biggrin: I think my favorite ep is the one where Louise and Tina go to the boy band concert. "I just want to slap his stupid, perfect FACE!"

Brags / Cleo/Lagoona Scaris 2 pack for $17!
« on: November 16, 2013, 10:55:39 AM »
I had a 20% off a regularly-priced item AND a $5 TRU Rewards certificate burning a hole in my pocket, so I went to two TRU's looking for something to buy. The Scaris 2-pack was on sale for $17. Unfortunately TRU wouldn't take an extra 20% off of that (they took it off the $3 clearance Cody Simpson doll I got to swipe the clothes from instead), but the $5 off coupon pretty much took care of the extra expense and the sales tax.

Hopefully I can find someone who wants Lagoona, I don't really care for this version of her.  ^^; Friend is taking her for the incredibly low price of "Free!" Ha!  :biggrin:

Customs / Sharpie Oil-Based Markers?

Off Topic / JARVIS on your phone!
« on: September 10, 2013, 06:07:42 PM »
The Iron Man facebook page announced a JARVIS interactive app in the iPhone store today. It's free! Warning: Though it says it's 4s compatible, I can't get it to install on my phone. So disappointed.  :(

Edit: Found out I have a different phone. Doopy-doop.  :facepalm:

Monster Discussion / The MH Doll Encyclopedia! (Actually UPDATED again!?)
« on: September 03, 2013, 05:09:43 PM »

In order to make it easier to tell what is needed, I am starting a Dropbox folder to organize our pics. So starting today (Sept. 14th), if you don't see it in here, we don't have it yet!


If you want to make things easy and get access to upload directly to the dropbox account, pm me your email address and I'll send you an invite. Otherwise you can still feel free to pm or email me with pics. A note: If you sent me pics via email and didn't get an acknowledgement from me, my spam folder might have eaten your message. I'll ALWAYS reply when you send pics, just so you know I got 'em and how glad I am to get 'em!

We now return you to the previous post!

How would you like a super-awesome Monster High doll guide? Yeah you would! Good news, there's one in the works. Here's an early sample of what we're planning:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Note: sample page made with pics from Google images, we will NOT be using pics that have not been taken by Arena members for the finished guide. Many apologies if you spot your uncredited pic on here!

The finished guide will be in PDF format for easy download and printing and we're planning on these great features:
  • Photos of the boxed doll and box back!
  • Barcode scans!
  • Pic of the unboxed doll and ALL accessories!
  • Stand color, if applicable!
  • Exclusive store release info!
  • Comparison of variants
  • Release/reveal info!
  • Where the character/outfit has appeared in media (e.g. movies, etc.)
  • AND MORE!!!
Want to help? We're compiling pics right now for this guide.

Here's what I currently know we have ready so far:
LiquidCyanide is providing: Pics of all the signature dolls including Howleen and Clawd from the 2 packs, the schools out girls and 1600 Cupids accessories.
PonySeeker128 is providing: Pics of the Dawn of the Dance line
Zombelina has provided the following info on stand colors:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Cleoglyphics is providing: pictures of Sig!Cupid's Box and Diary
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
raydelsol is providing pics of the following accessories:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
(If I missed something, let me know!)

We still need:
  • Pics of all non-sig doll lines (full unboxed doll, along with shoes and accessories as separate pics- white background preferred, if possible) -NOTE, PonySeeker128 is doing DOTD
  • Pics of box backgrounds
  • Pics of line graphics (Gloom Beach, Ghouls Rule and other logos from boxes)
  • Shoe pics for sig dolls
  • Info on years each line was released, what color stands/brushes came with them (if applicable)

So with that, I'll turn it over to you guys to sound off on what's being photographed and compiled! I'll update the needs/got lists as needed. Everyone who contributes will be mentioned on the contributor's page!  :biggrin:

Off Topic / Scary Godmother doll Kickstarter

Heath's excited to be out of the box!

Don't all girls love singers?

Monster Discussion / Monster High dreams?
« on: August 16, 2013, 07:24:52 PM »
Anyone here had any cool MH related dreams? I had an awesome one awhile back where I found a new line of Halloween-themed dolls. Instead of "glammed up monster themes", they had looks and outfits more indicative of their monster base.

Instead of pink skin and pink-streaked hair, Draculaura was almost bone white, with blood red streaks in her hair and an almost gothic lolita dress. Abbey had opalescent white skin and long, long cyan and white hair with faint streaks of darker cyan/blue, purple, and light, light pink. I couldn't tell much about her outfit, as she was wearing a floor-length fur coat. I think she was on the "big sister" body, too. The Lagoona had a scaley-patterned body suit with fin-like frills and a neckline that was made to look like flared gills.

Oh my gosh, you guys. It's started. Mega-super-turbo-ultra clearance hit the ground running at my Wal-Mart today. I've already over-purchased and they're not even done bringing stuff out yet!

The only MH stuff I got was the Coffin Bean set for $5.25, and I found the Heath/Abbey 2-packs! I nabbed one and now I'm just sitting here in a pile of toys (mostly Novi Stars) trying to decide what stays and what goes, lol!
