Off Topic / Things you wish they would make in doll scale
« on: September 18, 2018, 12:28:06 PM »
So earlier today I was thinking about all of variety we now have with Barbie Fashionistas when it suddenly hit me that although they had made a doll with cornrows, they never made one with dreadlocks. I suddenly really want dreadlocks on a Barbie doll now, but I'm awful with doll hair, so I'll just have to wait until Mattel makes one.

What other things, whether it be a certain facial feature or accessory, do you wish they would make in doll scale?

So I recently bought a lot of thirty Bratz dolls off of eBay. I've already made over a lot of them, but then the idea to take "before and after" pictures occurred to me. I'm super busy, so I only had time to take "before" pictures, but I'll post them with "after" pictures once my schedule frees up a bit more and I have time to give these dolls the proper TLC they need. For now, show me your greatest doll transformations!

So my old thread was locked because I didn't update it....yeah, I'm pretty bad at keeping things updated. :blush: But the good news is that I'm going to the flea market tomorrow, hopefully to get some doll/doll related items, and I ordered some stuff online, so I hope to be updating this thread frequently over the next couple of days. :)

Toys R Us Haul: September 28, 2017

I know, I know...it's a little bit late to be posting about this haul, but I couldn't help myself! They were such great finds! I got Shriek Wrecked Catrine and Gil for $8 each, and the three Ever After High pets for $3 each. Here's a picture I took of them on an old Barbie couch I had:

Aren't they so cute together?

New American Girl Doll: A couple days ago (I forget exactly when :P )

So I bought this American Girl doll Lanie Holland back when she was released in 2010. For those of you who don't know, she was a Girl of the Year doll, meaning she would only be available until January 1, 2011. I was nine at the time, and I played super roughly with her, ruining her hair. But, fortunately, American Girl offers a "doll hospital" service where they will replace dolls' heads. So, when my parents took me to the American Girl Store in New York as my 16th birthday present, I dropped off Lanie, they gave her a new head (lol, that sounds weird :lol: ) and she was shipped back to me. She arrived a few days ago. Look at how beautiful she is!

TJMaxx Haul: October 5, 2017

My mom, sister, and I ran into TJMaxx yesterday to look for a birthday present for my little cousin. That meant the toy section, which means me buying dolls. I immediately saw Ghouls Getaway Jinafire and Gala Ghoulfriends Mouscedes, and I scooped them up. Then, as we were heading to check out, I saw they had a small display of toys near the front. I found Barbie Fashionista #52, who I named Raychel, and DC Superhero Girls Batgirl! I got all four dolls for only $32!

Sales / respositob's Sales: UPDATE Most things now on eBay
« on: October 06, 2017, 08:17:31 AM »
UPDATE: I've decided to slowly move everything to dad's eBay as my stuff hasn't been selling very well on here. Most things are being sold auction style and ship free.

I am located in the United States, and unfortunately will not be able to ship internationally. Everything has to be bought through eBay.

Here's what I have for sale so far:
  • Robecca (SOLD), Rochelle (SOLD) and Cleo's wave one diaries, each being sold separately
  • Monster High Bait Lot: two dolls, a Clawdeen wolf doll body, and some clothes (SOLD)

Link to the listings: https://www.ebay.com/usr/mgpants

Thank you so much for looking!

My old thread about doll beds was locked, so I decided to make a new one. Plus, I've made a lot more beds since then. :)

So, about two years ago, I discovered this YouTuber: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJFDb15TQ9fYvwojqYqbSXQ

Her name is Dolls, Toys, and Games Gal and she is AMAZING!!!! She makes homemade doll beds using Smooth Foam Blocks. So awhile ago I decided to go buy some crafting supplies and make some of my own. The first bed I made was for Rosabella Beauty. Over the past years, I've made tons of doll beds. I thought I'd share a few pics.

The bed starts out as a Smooth Foam Block from Michael's. Then you hot glue some fabric to the block to act as a bed sheet. Next you make a footboard and a headboard, then you make a blanket and pillow(s). Finally you add details, and: ta-da! You have your very own doll bed. You can find pics of mine on my Flickr:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/142563150@N04/albums/72157686849539980

I've recently added pictures of Wydowna Spider, Clawdia Wolf, and Apple White's beds.

I also got the idea from Dolls, Toys, and Games Gal to make rooms for my dolls. She buys shelves and glues on wallpaper and floors, but I don't have space for tons of shelves, so I decided to make the wallpaper and floors removable. Basically I glue the wallpaper and floors to foam board and Velcro the foam board to the shelves.

At least that's my idea now. I originally had the idea to make a foldable room I could insert into the shelves, using hinges for the foldable parts. Unfortunately, the hinges were too thick and the walls wouldn't fit. But, instead of redoing the whole thing, I just put the room on top of my shelves. But I'll be using the velcro method from now on. ;)

Anyways, I made a room for Clawdeen, Howleen, and Clawdia using the hinges method. You can find pictures of it near the end of my Flickr album.

Well, I hope you ghouls and mansters like them! I'll post more pictures as I make more beds (I'm currently working on Meeshell's :) ).

Monster Discussion / Never mind!
« on: December 20, 2016, 07:30:05 AM »
So I received a package of used Monster High dolls in the mail. They came with clothes and accessories, some of which I can't figure out which dolls they belong to. I'm also having trouble identifying two dolls. I think they're Picture Day Lagoona and Gloom Beach Cleo but I can't be sure. I've included some pictures below, hopefully you guys will know. Thanks so much! :)

I believe this is Picture Day Lagoona.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Is this Gloom Beach Cleo?
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I think the dress and necklace are Cleo's, though not sure which release, and I think the shorts are Lagoona's? I have no idea who the shirt belongs to, if it even is Monster High.

Ever After High Discussion / EAH Dolls as Godesses/Gods?
« on: September 06, 2016, 03:38:56 PM »
So, I was thinking...C.A. Cupid is the daughter of Eros, the Greek love god, but what about the other characters? What god or goddess would they be the daughter or son of (if they weren't the children of fairytale characters, obviously)? I have a few ideas:

-Melody would be the daughter of Apollo, the god of music.
-Meeshell would be the daughter of Poseidon, the god of the sea. (Which would make her a sister of Posea Reef from Monster High :) )
-Apple, being the fairest of them all, would of course be the daughter of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty
-Crystal would be the daughter of Chione, the little known goddess of snow

What other characters can you guys match to a god or goddess? I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with!

Catrine's Art Studio / Homemade Doll Beds
« on: September 06, 2016, 08:32:59 AM »
So, about a year ago, I discovered this YouTuber: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJFDb15TQ9fYvwojqYqbSXQ Her name is Dolls, Toys, and Games Gal and she is AMAZING!!!! She makes homemade doll beds using Smooth Foam Blocks. So I decided to go buy some crafting supplies and make some of my own. The first bed I made was for Rosabella Beauty. But to be honest, I don't have a picture of that since the bed is away in storage and I didn't feel like dragging it out. I do have a really bad picture of it on my Instagram, though I don't know if I'm allowed to post a link to that here. Anyways, over the past year, I've made tons of doll beds. I thought I'd share a few pics.

The bed starts out as this:

So tell me, what is the coolest thing you've ever found at a garage sale or flea market? It doesn't even have to be Monster High related. I'm just curious to see what kind of treasures everyone here has found!  :biggrin:

I've just gotten into this garage sale and flea market thing, but the coolest thing I've probably ever found was a bunch of My Little Ponies from the early 2000s. I know its not very impressive, but as I said, I just started going to garage sales and flea markets. Anyways, each pony was $2.50 each but the woman selling them gave us a discount and I bought eight pre-loved ponies for $17.

I want to like the curvy Barbie dolls, I really do. I'm not discriminating, I'm curvy myself, but I just don't like their outfits and because they're fuller-figured, I don't know if I could swap out any clothes. I also can't sew... Another doll I want to like is DC Super Hero Girls Harley Quinn. I want to love her. I really want to love her. But I just can't. Maybe it's the molded on tights...IDK. So, are there any dolls you really want to like, but just can't?

14
Are the Ever After High Signatures with facial expressions legit or not? I don't mean the budget ones. I mean the full on Signatures with accessories. I really want to find them so I can redress them. I usually don't redress dolls but I want a few I can redress. So I've being waiting to buy more Signatures until Mattel comes out with ones with expressions. If they're not legit, then I'm gonna go ahead and buy more Signatures. If anyone knows anything please respond. Thanks!

15
Okay, so as I mentioned before I'm getting the SDCC Raven Queen. But I don't know if I should take her out of the box or not. I only want to if she comes with a stand, though. What do you guys think? And does she come with a stand?

Brags / Guess What I Got For Christmas (or am going to get, anyways)?!
« on: December 18, 2015, 03:10:23 PM »
Okay, so I was looking on eBay with my mom looking at San Diego Comic Con exclusive Raven Queen. I kept saying how much I wanted her for Christmas, and my mom said, "Since it's so obvious I'm gonna get her for you, why don't I just order it right now?" I squealed. So I'm not allowed to open her until Christmas, but I'm super-duper excited! I finally got my hands on a Comic Con doll! Yeah!

What do you think about the dolls with rooted eyelashes? Do you find them more beautiful? Should Mattel make more?

Introductions! / Introduction
« on: June 30, 2015, 08:04:13 PM »
Hi! I'm respositob, a fourteen year old, USA native, home-schooled, Monster High lover! It's a pleasure to join the Monster High Arena community. I really do love Monster High! I also collect Ever After High, Bratzillaz, and miWorld, but I'm here to talk about Monster High. I have around fifty Monster High dolls and have collecting since 2010. I used to play with them when I was younger but now I am a true collector. I am a bit disappointed though because some of the older dolls that I played with are missing accessories or have messed up hair. But oh, well! Anyways, I can't wait to meet all of the other wonderful Monster High lovers on this site!
