Please show me yours now!  :biggrin:

Customs / C.A. Skelecupid

Has anyone else done this before? I could never mess up a nice Cupid but when I found this ghoul at the thrift store, I knew she was destined for skeledom.

I kind of love the idea of her wearing nothing but a raincoat so she can go around and be like, "Guess what? *rips open coat* SKELEBUTT!"

Ever After High Discussion / Where is Way Too Wonderland Briar?

Apologies if this is in another thread but where is this doll? Apparently she didn't ship with the other WTW releases. Is she exclusive to somewhere? Only sold outside of the US?


Buy/Sell/Trades / FAMILY DOLLAR: Finds & Sales
« on: August 01, 2015, 04:53:27 PM »
8/1/15 - Family Dollar in Manassas, VA has Geek Shriek wave 2.

Also, every Family Dollar I have visited in the last week has a clearance section of toys right now which are marked 50% off. It varies wildly from store to store as to what they have but one f the ones here in Culpeper has a few Hat-tastic EAH dolls for $10 each which seems like a good deal to me. Many of the stores I visited had fakies and Barbies for good prices, too.

Brags / Three-Eyed Ghoul! (now with photos!)
« on: June 15, 2015, 07:02:08 PM »
I have no idea how but 3-Eyed Ghoul has never been in my collection. And like, I love me some CAMs. I finally lucked out and found her on Craigslist in a big bunch of stuff but I had to drive two hours down and two hours back to get her. But I have her now. And she's mine. I've ordered more CAM parts from Amazon so I'll post photos once I get her into a nice mix of parts and colors. Yay!

I have been looking for Rockin' Hairstyle Applejack for a while now and STILL have not seen her in stores or for sale on any websites for retail value ($19.99). Target's website says that she is in stock at all the local stores but she is clearly not as I have both looked and asked employees. The only place to buy her is on Amazon where she is artificially marked up. She is currently $30 which is complete ghoulspit. I'm not paying that for a doll that should be $20 in stores. Only 3/6 of the Rockin' Hairstyle Equestria Girls dolls are in the stores around here which makes me think that the other 3, Applejack included will likely not ever show up anywhere near here. I'm also thinking this isn't just a case of, well, maybe they haven't shipped into stores yet because the new Equestria Girls line, Friendship Games (Rockin' Hairstyle is part of Rainbow Rocks) is already available to order on Amazon and will likely be in stores soon.

Anyway, I want this freaking doll. I didn't really want to pay $20 for her but I'm certainly not paying $30 for her. Amazon can just gtfo with that price.

Has anyone seen this doll in stores anywhere?? Applejack, Pinkie Pie, & Rarity were not released anywhere around here (Central/Northern Virginia).

Brags / Tumblr dolly swap gets!
« on: June 08, 2015, 09:44:35 PM »
I did both a trade on here and one on tumblr last week and got some great dolls! I got a nude Dracubecca (and a few other dolls) from Galaxy on here and complete Shibooya Draculaura from someone on tumblr. Here they are, after trading fashion secrets.

Very happy with these trades. :)

Buy/Sell/Trades / BARNES & NOBLE: Finds & Sales
« on: April 30, 2015, 07:42:59 PM »
Barnes and Noble just marked their clearance down to 75% off today. I was in Fredericksburg, VA and bought Scaris Abbey & I <3 Accessories Oppie for 75% off. Another lady bought everything else MH they had (a few Twylas, Lagoonafire, I <3 Shoes Draculaura, Oppie as Frankie, Creepeteria playset, etc). They also had lots of games, books, and Barbie items. Maybe go check your nearest Barnes and Noble for clearance!

Brags / My first EAH doll
« on: April 02, 2015, 03:52:05 PM »
I *FINALLY* found original box basic Cedar at Target in Charlottesville, VA today and price matched her to get her for $10. You have no idea how long it has taken me to a) find this doll and b) for a price I'm willing to pay. So glad I didn't drop $20 on her the last time I saw her!

It's kind of a little brag but hey, I'm happy. I'm sure you'll see photos when I get home later. :)

Monster Discussion / Where is Haunted Spectra being found?
« on: March 23, 2015, 07:51:31 PM »
Where are ya'll finding her? What countries/states and what stores?

Feel free to move this to the sightings forum but I didn't put it there because it was restructured & I really wanted to see this in a thread all of its own.

Ever After High Discussion / $5 EAH Playset Clearance at Walmart
« on: March 17, 2015, 07:48:23 PM »
Every Walmart is different as far as markdowns but I've seen Apple's Fainting Couch and Raven's Dresser both for $5 each at a couple different Walmarts. Some of them were not marked but I scanned them and they came up that way. I have no room for either of these playsets so I passed but I thought I'd pass along the info in case you all wanted to give it a go. There's still a $5 Raven playset here in Culpeper, VA and there were several of each in Manassas, VA.

Brags / $1 Venus from Attercop (pics)
« on: March 07, 2015, 09:05:46 AM »
Attercop sold me a Coffin Bean Venus head on a partial CAM witch body for $1 which was AMAZING. I'd been looking for a cheap bait-y CB Venus for a while so this worked out great Anyway, her she is now...

Thanks so much, Attercop!!!  :biggrin:

Brags / Catty Noir fan merch accessory pack
« on: February 25, 2015, 01:20:56 AM »
The other day I snagged the "Catty Noir fan merch accessory pack", lol. My Scene Madison is a HUGE Catty fan so she had to have it.  ;)

And here she is with her favorite pop star!

Well worth the $2.49 spent.  :biggrin:

Clawdeen's Closet / Catty's Licca hoodie
« on: February 20, 2015, 03:20:42 AM »

I shared this on tumblr but forgot to post it on the forum; I ordered a Licca kitty hoodie for Catty on ebay and I can't believe how perfect it looks! The seller even included two little hangers which work great for Catty's after school concert practice costumes. :)

If you're interested, here's the other one the same seller has for sale: [live link removed ~ many thanks ~ hathorcat]

Brags / My first Inner Monster
« on: February 14, 2015, 12:48:28 AM »
I've been wanting an inner monster since they came out but wasn't crazy about the sets as a whole; I finally got a great deal on a nudie from someone on tumblr! Not sure if I'll leave her like this but for now she's Skelita's fire monster friend from Hexico.

Off Topic / sick.

Clearly I have angered the mucus gods somehow. :(

Ever After High Discussion / Cupid Shoes
« on: February 01, 2015, 12:53:15 PM »
I posted this on tumblr but thought you all might like to know also...

A lot of you probably already know this but you can find some weird Chinese MH and EAH stuff for cheap on ebay. I snagged some Barbie-sized shoes that appear to be smaller versions of Cupid's shoes for 29 cents. They're actually really freaking awesome and I love them! <3

I've had both good luck and bad luck with the Chinese cheapo ebay stuff but I figure if it's less than a dollar, I can take a chance.

If you're looking for a good starting place, try this seller:
I've had mostly good luck with them.

Monster Discussion / NS Catty's Ear Studs
« on: January 30, 2015, 04:33:48 PM »
Hi, I'm blind as a bat. What are they supposed to be? Since they aren't just circular studs (they're sort of triangular) I'm assuming they're supposed to be something...?
