Monster Discussion / Re: Mermaid Siren torso/arms?
« on: August 26, 2017, 08:16:18 PM »
There was never a matching toros released for the siren CAM, unfortunately.  When I had when I found that if you had a particularly blue lagoona that it looked okay, but it still wasn't perfect.

I'm just going to add on with what SaeleVe has stated, in that liquitex is less toxic, but that you should still wear a respirator and work in a well ventilated area if you use it in an airbrush.  All varnishes give off fumes as they cure, even brush on, and that is nothing you want in your lungs when it's used in an airbrush!  If you use it as a brush on, you don't have to worry about the respirator.

Thanks, everyone  <3
I admit that I wish I had more regal clothing for her, but alas I just never got much cleo clothing as I've said before.  I really wish I had gotten Iheart fashion cleo, but I never saw her in stores.  Probably would have had some great stuff for her!

I think I'm in agreement with everyone who has said the mh arena will keep going.  Sure, it will probably slow down quite a bit, but go away completely?  Nah.
Just because a doll line is no longer active doesn't mean it diminishes our love for the older dolls, even if mine are in storage   ^^;

Posted a couple pics of redressed cleo here!,14519.0.html

Figured I'd start this thread, as I'd love to see more pics of these two!
Here are my attempts at redressing Cleo -

So, how many of you are leaving these two in box?  Sheer curiosity on my part, doesn't sound like many are unboxing them!
I've actually been playing with redressing cleo, strangely enough.  If anyone's interested I'll make a thread for pics, although I don't have much cleo appropriate clothing XD

I got them and unboxed them last night!  I love these two so much, but be warned!  It seems like cleo is more prone to be flawed (irony).  Mine definitely has eye wonk, not to the point that I can't stand it, but it's there and the headdress looks off on her because of it  :|

I think the little differences can also be chalked up to amazon's pictures being the prototype version.
The shoes are split down the center as we usually see with the prototypes.

Alivia is super cute, but pretty much a relflection of frankie with head stitching and bolts (which I love!).  She's the best sibling we've seen so far, even if I would have preferred a little brother for frankie.

Dream daddy just looks like a super charming gaming fromwhat I've seen of it, so my girlfriend and I (aka my gf will play and I get to watch) will play it when she returns home next week!

Y'all, if you got the error message about payment unauthorized, make sure to check your Paypal or credit card balance... it gave me that same message both times I tried to order, but then charged me for both orders on Paypal!  I sent a message to see if I can get one of the orders cancelled.  If they won't cancel it, looks like I'll have an extra to sell.
It looks like the same thing happened to me, so make sure you all check!  I tried to pay through paypal, it said error so I paid with credit card and I was charged through both.
I still love this set, but mattel's buggy website is seriously bringing me down!

Ordered!  We'll see if I end up keeping Cleo, but I figured they'd be a nice pick me up being alone next week.
Can't wait for a new ghoulia  <3

I really like this two pack!  How adorable that they have ghoulia being the explorer finding the mummy!
My only reservation is that I think a long gown/dress would have looked better on cleo, but overall it's not going to sway me from maybe buying them.
I wonder how much they'll sell for?

I'm more dissapointed in myself for how cute I think Frankie is here, but I'm not buying an unarticulated two pack and a normal frankie just to get her with a nice body :really:

Valentina is beautiful  <3 Glowa did a beatiful job, and your styling skills are amazing, Shahaila!  I need to get me a skelepuppy one of these days.

Thanks you two!
Firecracker, did you do her face-up? Her ears are incredible…do they come off or are they permanent to her head?

When you can, would you please include a close-up of her new eyes?

Beautiful girl!!
I did do her faceup  :)  Anyways, here are a couple close up pics of her face without a wig on, hopefully they  answer your questions! (I really need to get a wig someday without bangs for her... I really do love her eye brows.  Of course the one time I'm pleased with them the character has blunt cut bangs  :P )

Also, because you reminded me that I have a pair of big boots  ;)  A couple of random belts or something and she'd probably look like something straight out of final fantasy!

Thank you so much, Dogmom, and Shahaila!  I’m really enjoying the fact that I am messing with my dolls once more, so it means the world to me :)

Anyways, my bjd Duchess is getting some time in the limelight as her new eyes came in!  I figured I’d share her and all the outfits she has.  The first one was the one she came in, made by the artist who cast her, the second one is an outfit from etsy that I added a belt too, and the third one was a lovely birthday present made by my girlfriend.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Aaaa, that hair is to die for!  Very bride of frankenstein.  I also love the varied sewn on patches.

Added a shoe lot  :biggrin:
