My one E3 wish didn't come true. No FFVII Remake trailer.  :cry: Sigh.... :(

Yeah, I wasn't impressed by Bethesda's showing either. I am looking forward to Sony's tomorrow, though... but honestly, all they have to do to win me over is show a new Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer, and I'll be a happy lady. :lol: <3

I watched Microsoft's event hoping they would show something good, but I wasn't really interested in anything, except for the new Life Is Strange game, and that will be multi-platform, anyways, so...

I really wanted them to come out of left field and show an exclusive JRPG that would give me an excuse to buy an Xbox One X, since I sold my regular Xbox One last year, but I guess that's something they haven't been interested in since the days of the 360. :huh:

Oh well, $500 still in my pocket, then. :lol:

We just moved into our new place on Saturday, and I finally have a dedicated toy room again after living in a confined space with my parents for the last 6 months. It's a disaster area of boxes right now, so I have no pics for you at the moment, but once everything is set up in a week or so, I'll post some pics here and probably put a tour video on my youtube. :)

Congrats on your new place! Everything looks wonderful. I'm so happy that you feel so much better about this place than your last. I know exactly how stressful it can be to live somewhere you're not comfortable with! I would love to see pic of your game room, too!

We just moved, ourselves, on Saturday. We are definitely going to need at least a week to unpack though, because we have SO much stuff. lol

Thank you, Shahaila! <3 :hug:

Speaking of Chanelle modeling different hair, I got 3 new wigs from Leeke World in the mail today! I'm very happy with all of them. ^.^

Off Topic / Collection Tracker Website/App Recommendations
« on: May 31, 2017, 06:59:56 PM »
So I discovered this app/website called Gemr after someone I'm subbed to on youtube made a video about it. I've been using it for about a year now, and am fairly satisfied with it, so I thought I'd recommend it to you guys.

It's or in app form under just Gemr.

You join "Clubs" on there, and join different collecting communitis, and view other peoples collections, and I *think* you can actually buy/sell/trade there, too, because I've had several message me asking if they can buy my items...

I honestly don't use any of that, though, and instead use it for cataloging and keeping track of my Pullip collection. You can add an item to a collection group on there, and upload a photo(s) of the item, along with a name and description for the item. I like it, because I can scroll down a see everything all in one place, and also see  number of the total items that I've collected.... that's helpful when curious people ask exactly how many you have.  ^^;  It also helps prevent buying doubles, when you have a large collection. I wish that there was a way to search for items quickly in your own collection, but it's a free app/website and beggars can't be choosers, I guess.  ^^;

Do you guys have a favorite collection tracking app/website? I have different ones for my video games and blurays/dvds, but they're very item specific, and cost me some money. I'd really like to see more free apps and websites that people use to catalog and keep track of their large collections. Please share them here!

That's no excuse though, my Pullip has way heavier top than Lala and she stands perfectly still and didn't fall once

Tbh I've always actually wondered how Pullips stand.
Is it possible to stand them up on their own? I wonder how people pose them in all the creative ways they do and get them to cooperate.

Most people do it by rebodying them to obitsus, but I've gotten mine stand on their own with their stock bodies, if they're wearing boots.

For the OP: You could always try using a different stand with her, like a kaiser stand, for example. Honestly I haven't tried it myself, though, because my Skeltia and Dracalaura are going to be staying in their boxes.  ^^;

I usually only yell at mine when they fall of the shelves, refuse to let me put clothes on them, or are being uncooperative for pictures.

I'm a mean dolly-mommy. :lol:

I've seen everything but Epic Winter, and I really enjoyed all of them. The EAH specials and webisodes were really well-done, imo.

As far as MH dolls go, at first I said I was just going to buy a couple when I first started collecting in January 2012, but by the time this forum was created in June 2013, I had 112 dolls. I became a completionist and peaked at 280 dolls in April 2014. A few months later, though, I found myself becoming disenchanted with Monster High, and decided to stop collecting everything they came out with, and sold off a bunch of my dolls. Then I decided I was pretty much done in the summer of 2015, and purged most of what was left of it. I still own 40 dolls today, but only very rarely buy a Lagoona or a Toralei. I also bought collector's Draculaura and received Skelita as a gift, but that trend won't continue, because collector's Abbey looks hideous to me.

I pretty much fell out of love with MH as EAH became big, and switched to them as my priority. When EAH began to deteriorate last summer, though, I bought a Pullip on a whim, and was just completely enamoured with her. So my collecting again switched focus, and I am mainly a Pullip collector these days. I still have my whole EAH collection, and have no plans of selling them at the moment, but I probably won't be buying anymore, unless the line does a complete turnaround to what it once was.

I do also collect some Barbies, Descendants, Star Darlings, and other various doll brands, but they never really been my focus, and I just buy or receive them as gifts here or there.
