Off Topic / Fandom/SDCC Doll Swap?
« on: March 31, 2018, 11:02:49 PM »
Is there any desire to do a fandom/geeky based doll swap? I was thinking it would be fun to do it around the time of San Diego Comic Con. I'm interested in either doing just a two person swap or organizing a small group one. Since it wouldn't be an official MHArena one it would be open to Monster High, Ever After High, DC Super Hero Girls, Descendants, Equestria Girls, and Barbie.

This post is to check interest and brainstorm.

Brags / Private Swap with Robina
« on: October 28, 2016, 07:41:08 PM »
Robina and I decided to do a private doll swap.  In between when we agreed to it and now I've had a rough couple of weeks.  Receiving the box from her is one of the few good things to happen this week.

That little cutie with the box is d'Eon my cat.  He's named after a French knight from the 1700s.

First there was a wooden box with the one and only Sailor Moon.  A sticker on the inside reveals it was done by Myrcury.

And what does Sailor Moon love?


First doll unwrapped and it is Musketeer Rochelle Goyle!  I've always wanted my very own Rochelle as a musketeer doll.  This is basically my dream Monster High doll and it's in my hands!

I got a little excited and forgot to take a picture after the second doll.  So here is Rochelle with the second and third doll together.  I got ANOTHER custom.  Apple White, one of my favorite Ever After High characters, dressed as Snegurochka, my favorite fairy tale character.  The third doll is the magician Frankie Stein doll!  This is one of my favorite Frankie dolls to boot!

They are joined by Queen Chrysalis in her beautiful human form.  I don't think she likes the height difference.

Darling Charming joins the party!  Her dragon games doll is such a beauty!

I couldn't help myself.  I had to do a shippy picture with lady and knight.

Yes, Rochelle is one of my favorite characters!  Now I have her vinyl!

I adore Halloween and kitty cats!  This is... purrfect.

What's this?  My custom dolls get CUSTOM STANDS!?  Are you trying to spoil me?  And Rochelle gets a hat and earrings too!

According to the card the clothing was by QueenofKawaii and the shoes and stands are by Myrcury.  I think they did amazing work

Thank you so much for this Robina.  This really brightened things up for me in these bleak times.

Off Topic / Monster Prom
« on: October 28, 2016, 05:18:24 PM »
I was browsing the gaming news websites when I found some info for an upcoming dating sim called Monster Prom.  You play as a male or female monster in a monster highschool with three weeks to go until prom.  Your romance choices are a gorgon, mermaid, ghost, werewolf, vampire, or demon.

I just had a feeling that a video game about monsters in highschool might be relevant to the interests of this forum.

Off Topic / Best Friend in Traffic Collision
« on: October 27, 2016, 11:44:14 PM »
Samantha, my best friend, was on her way home from work on Monday night on her motorcycle.  She was in a head on traffic collision with the car.  She hit the windshield and then rolled off the hood and onto the pavement.  She suffered a broken leg, broken arm, her pelvis is in at least five pieces, and there is bleeding in her brain.  Doctors are hopeful for her recovery.  She's been kept sedated since the accident.

Sam is a huge fan of Ever After High, especially Apple White.  She likes Monster High but not as much.  Cleo is her favorite for that.  She also loves RPGs, magical girls, scifi, fantasy, and rock. 

I want to do something nice for her for when she wakes up, but I don't know what.  She doesn't like having a lot of money spent on her.  Any ideas?

For the sake of this I will for the most part only be drawing from animated canon except when otherwise noted.

A lot has changed in Ever After High's status quo since it first got started.  It has made me rethink a few things about it.

We know that the Storybook of Legends in the very beginning of the series is fake.  We only clearly saw the pages for Apple and Raven on it.  Apple signed, Raven didn't.  As of Thronecoming we know that Ashlynn signed the fake book but Briar didn't.  However, being fake throws everything into question regarding that book.

The real book appears in Way Too Wonderland.  We only end up with one person signing: Raven.  We also can fairly safely say that Lizzie's real page definitely listed her as the next Queen of Hearts or else Courtly's plan would have made no sense.  At the end of the special each person's page merges with them.  Which in theory sounds like it should leave it up to the person whether or not to follow their destiny.

Now, some stories should be pretty much okay.  Regardless of where they fall on the Royal and Rebel spectrum all the Wonderlanders seem eager to take their parents' roles.  Other stories are less clear either because, despite allegiance, some characters are unclear about how they feel on their own personal stories, or because some characters want their role and others don't.

Thanks to Dragon Games we now see what happens with one of those stories when not all the participants want it.  Apple White is pretty clearly the new Snow White.  Darling Charming is the new Prince Charming, though in her case we really don't know if this was her original destiny or not.  The previous Evil Queen resumes her role as the new Evil Queen. 

In the fairy tale Snow White is treated like a servant by the Evil Queen.  So, since the story needs to happen and it is doubtful the Evil Queen would get a chance to marry Apple's dad, we have Apple's doubts and fears built up upon and piled on until in a moment of weakness she frees the Evil Queen.  Blackmail and promises from the Evil Queen lets them keep the dynamic of the Snow White character being the Evil Queen's servant and miserable. 

Now Hunter is a Rebel and in more than one story.  So he'd be disinclined to serve the Evil Queen especially since he has no prior connection or friendship with her like he would have if it had been Raven.  So the story needs a new huntsman.  Thus we have Faybelle.  She serves as the Evil Queen's tool until she has a change of heart and helps the heroes.  What makes this really interesting is that Faybelle wants her destiny as the next Dark Fairy, yet she ends up in the Huntsman's role. 

Raven seems like she escapes the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, but she did not.  In fact her role has only shifted.  If you remove Apple and Darling, due to being Snow White and Prince Charming, that leaves Raven, Holly, Poppy, Maddie, Melody, Lizzie and Ashlynn as dragon riders.  That's right, seven dragon riders.  Raven is now one of the seven dwarves.  Which fits as she is always warning about the Evil Queen.  They put Apple in the glass coffin.  It is only with the Disney movie that the dwarves were really considered individuals.  Before that they were more of a group.  This fits the role of the dragon riders.  They are more important to the story as a group of Apple's friends than they are as individuals with Raven serving as the chief dwarf character.

So in the end the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves happened regardless of the desire of the participants.  We had people in roles regardless of whether or not they wanted the role, their original role, or none of the above.

This makes me think that the stories will happen and repeat regardless of whether or not people want them to.  The purpose of the Storybook of Legends wasn't to make sure the stories repeat, but to lock people into specific roles.  Except for the Evil Queen, pretty much every villain is doing hunky dory in Ever After.  While I said I wasn't going to refer to the books, this is the one time I will.  In the books Ginger's mother revealed that since she knew her role in the story she was able to put an escape from her oven, allowing the story to happen but also for her to survive.  She would not have been able to do this if she hadn't already known her role in the story.  By knowing who will have what role and giving them classes specific to that role from a young age they minimize loss of life. 

Brags / Private Swap with Robina
« on: December 15, 2015, 02:30:22 PM »
The same day Robina posts, my box from her arrives.

Photo removed due to content- ebmerc, Brags Mod

There was brief excitement in the house when certain relatives thought I was receiving alcohol.

The contents were non-alcoholic.

I would say that my love of Power Rangers is similar to Robina's love for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  So guess how excited I was when I unwrapped a solid block of card packs!  I used to collect Power Ranger cards when I was little!

I was told it would be a bad idea to photograph ever single card individually.  So here is the lot of them with a few pulled out.  Oh and some of the packs also had pogs in them!  All the cards seem to be based on the first season.

I really love chocolate, mint, cherry and caramel.  I'm pretty sure Robina covered all of those and she some how knew of my unstated love of chewy candy too. Ironically, I almost sent her things of Hi-Chew.

I love snow and fairy tales.  There are also some Monster High stickers there too!

I am a complete geek.  I got my first ever Funko Pop of Data! A neato Cybermen hanging bag thing (the technical term escapes me)!  And a corbomite Han Solo ice cube tray.  That is already filled with water and in the freezer.

I also love My Little Pony!  I got my first Sunset Shimmer pony (I always considered buying her then decided against it), an AJ plushie, some bracelets and a Princess Luna ornament.  Ironically, I buy ornaments for all my relatives.  I had gotten my niece the exact same Princess Luna one and had been silently wanting to keep it for myself.  Now I have my own!

Here is Sunset Shimmer with my small collection of ponies.

Last, but definitely not least, it's doll time!  With Cupid I now have all the thronecoming dolls except Briar!  I get my first Twyla and Scarah dolls too!  I just love cat girl Scarah.  Twyla just looks lovely as a ghost.  Do I need to describe how gorgeous Cupid's Thonecoming dress is? (Yes, I voted for Cupid).

Thank you Robina!

Tonner Website

I've always admired the Tonner dolls.  Now that I am getting into DC I'm really in love with their Bombshells and 1966 Batgirl dolls.  I think I might be trapped now that they have layaway.  Are there any Tonner collectors with words of advice or wisdom?

Off Topic / What is your favorite short episode series
« on: December 11, 2015, 06:58:58 AM »
So we have a few pretty good series with short episodes.  Which is your personal favorite?  Which do you think is the best? What do you think each does well and what do you think needs improvement?

Off Topic / Concussion
« on: December 10, 2015, 04:56:54 AM »
I hit my head two days ago at work.  Last night my brother made me go to the ER because the pain wouldn't go away and I was finding it difficult to focus.  Of course it turns out I have a concussion.

Brags / Holiday Swap with Wuvmykitties
« on: December 05, 2015, 12:50:42 AM »
I did a private swap with Wuvmykitties.  I wouldn't allow myself to post my brag thread until I got some serious gift wrapping done in my end.

Here is the awesome box she sent me.

While she does love kitties, that kitty did not come in the box.  That is Angel.  She is my cat's pet cat.

And here is my boy, d'Eon, with the presents. 

I may have forgotten to reorient the pictures before uploading them.

Here are both kitties with the exciting, and fabulously wrapped, gifts.  Guest appearances by a PS3, two stuffed teddy bears and my finger.  Actually, the black teddy bear belongs to Angel.

Okay, enough cats posing with boxes!  On to the main event!

Ghoul's Night Out Rochelle! 

I lied about there not being more cat photos.  Angel helps unwrap while d'Eon supervises.

I always get so excited after unwrapping the first thing that I always forget to take a photo until after everything is said and done.

The M&M were mint and weren't dark chocolate!  I was so excited and they didn't last long in my home, though I did receive help from my father and brother. Wuv's gifts were so amazing that I was instantly floored.  They are all so lovely! Perfect eyes, hair and paint!  I just want to gush about how much I love everything, but I'm not good at gushing.

Thank you Wuv!  Don't worry your box is coming soon.  There is just one item still coming in the mail.

Rules & Regs! / Codes for games
« on: November 30, 2015, 12:56:13 PM »
I like to buy things like Humble Bundle and Indie Bundle to get games I want at a discount.  Often I either don't want all the games or I already own some of them.  Would it be alright for me to offer the extra games on the forum to whoever wants them?

Catrine's Art Studio / Brainstorming EAH Gift Fic
« on: November 12, 2015, 11:46:26 PM »
So I have to write an Ever After High gift fic for someone.  It has to be at least one thousand words and include Apple, Raven, Ginger and Kitty.  They don't need to all be equally prominent, but they all need to show up.  The person it is for likes F/F, F/M and gen.  She has said that she is okay with any combo of the requested characters being shipped.

A few rough ideas I have:
-Superhero AU with Apple in a Batman like role. 
-Sword & sorcery adventure
-Evil Queen successfully rewrote reality to make herself the ruler and only Raven remembers the original world
-A sort of fantasy Wild West setting inspired by the Wild Arms games of which the recipient is a huge fan

Any suggestions either for any of those ideas or for other ones?  The recipient is not a member of this forum so I'm not worried about them stumbling upon this thread.

Customs / Help with Sailor Pluto hair
« on: October 25, 2015, 05:26:17 PM »
I know nothing about hair. I am trying to make a custom with the same hairstyle as Sailor Pluto for a friend's Christmas gift.

Any ideas?

Ever After High Discussion / A Semi-Charming Kind of Life [Spoilers]
« on: July 10, 2015, 08:38:36 PM »
So the book has been out for a few days. 

There are a few things I found interesting
-Confirmation of both Paul Bunyan and Helen of Troy existing in universe
-Avalon & Camelot mentioned as places
-Confirmation that this is at least somewhat in continuity with the Shannon Hale books as it mentions the Damsel-in-Distressing class from her books where they escaped the tower

I am a bit sad that we got a big Maid Marian presence but no confirmation about whether she is Sparrow's mom.  Darling is nice and I am glad she realized she was really attending the class for herself and not for Dexter.  I got kind of annoyed at Rosabella.  Based one what they showed in the book she felt kind of like a parody.

Ever After High Discussion / New Logo?
« on: June 29, 2015, 03:36:16 PM »
I was looking at some of the leaks and have they changed the logo?  The girl from the logo is wearing a gold crown on the stuff for the new characters.

Buy/Sell/Trades / Zombie Shake Venus for trade
« on: April 08, 2015, 04:36:59 PM »
I have two dolls for trade.  I am not very concerned with the value with what I'd receive.  I will ship outside of the US.

I am also open to trading for My Little Ponies.  I am open to offers of Monster High dolls not on wishlist depending on what they are.

For trade I have Celebrities in Londoom Elissabat and Zombie Shake Venus.  What you see is what you get for Elissabat.  For Venus you won't be getting the stand but I am willing to send the brush and diary on request.  For the moment Venus is still attached to the box. Elissabat is loose.

EDIT Elissabat is no longer available.  Only Venus is left.

Brags / Private Swap with desiree.lari
« on: April 02, 2015, 12:09:53 PM »
Myself and desiree were in a private swap.  The box from her arrived today!

Cat was not included in the box.  His name is d'Eon

Everything is so cutely packaged!

Angel does not deserve her name.  You don't know how much trouble I had with her!

Everything together!  I love it all!  I especially love the little coyote and the caramel eggs inside of plastic eggs! Eggception!  All of the dolls are great!  I was especially excited for the Rochelle and the Jinafire! 

Sadly, it looks like d'Eon took personal offense at the little yellow mechanical chick when it was walking.  Both cat and bird are fine though.  It got taken away from him after I took the picture.

Kind of surprised to find it up on youtube today. 

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Ever After High Discussion / Box Typoes
« on: March 02, 2015, 01:20:15 AM »
I was just scrolling on tumblr when I saw a post by a person named jpopluvr1000 pointing out that the Ashlynn Ella Through the Woods doll has a typo on her box.  Behind the doll it is spelt "Ashlynn."  On the spine it is "Ashylnn."

Off Topic / My Ballerina Dolls
« on: February 19, 2015, 07:36:42 PM »
I was doing a search for doll info outside of Barbie, Monster High, Ever After High, and Equestria Girls.  In one of the earlier hits was a blog post for a doll called My Ballerina Dolls.  Boy are they adorable.  They are made of resin, use wigs and feel a bit closer to Asian BJDs than most other fashion dolls I have seen.
