Brags / Raven and Darling in Dragon Games! Pic Heavy
« on: November 21, 2015, 09:14:22 PM »
I found these at TRU today.   I hope you guys don't mind lots of pictures.  I've loved these from the first pictures and I'm not disappointed in the least.  I want all of the Dragon Girls and I wish even more characters had armor.  They're just awesome

Before:


After:


I have no idea why Darling looks warped... my camera is weird.   :blink:


I always fall for the Ravens.  It has to be her color combo.


Beautiful Darling.  She looks like she's from the 70s and makes me think of Western Barbie. 


While Raven seems very 80s.


This looks like it would be painful in real life.
















Love them!

Both outfits seem really well made.  Darling's skirt is very soft and nicely lined.  I love it.  Their pants stop above their boots, which seems sensible.  Raven's pants are so shimmery, I can't catch it on camera.  I kind of want to replace Darling's tights with silver ones.  But the patterned blue is nice too and they're quickly growing on me.

Anyway,

Eeeeeeeeee!!!!

Brags / My Luna
« on: June 06, 2015, 08:57:38 PM »




I was soooo excited to see these at TRU today!  I wanted them all.  But sadly felt forced to choose one as I know they will eventually be on sale.




So after examining all of their shoes...
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Luna came home with me.

She is so cute!  Honestly.  The first time I saw her pic, she was the last on my list.  But she jumped ahead of the pack when I saw her promo on Amazon.  And even though her bangs are not like that pic, I've found that her side bangs are enough to arrange them that way.

Her pigtails are really soft.  I didn't have much trouble at all making her hair presentable.

Her skirt isn't flimsy at all.  It's made of some sort of vinyl like material and much thicker than the long skirts used in 13 wishes.  I liked though too but this is definitely something new.

Her leggings aren't just leggings... it's a body suit and it shimmers like a mermaid's tail. 



Her antenna are a permanent part of her head.

 

Her wings are also amazing, they fold up and down vertically with the top sliding over the bottom and can be removed completely. They are also slightly transparent and look beautiful with light shining through them.

And from a distance, I thought her boots were moth eaten.  But they're actually intertwining moths.



She also has a very pretty moth/insect body that looks like a lot of fun for customizers.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Honestly, I think she's just an amazing doll.  I have no regrets.



I also got these a few days ago.  I had "Amazon Points" burning a hole in my pocket.


Lizzie!  She is so pretty in this outfit.  She really does look like a queen.  It was her hedgehog ring that put me over the edge when deciding who I wanted to bring home first.


I am such a Scarah fan.  Plus, I really love her color scheme.



So that's the big thing that happened to me today. I can't get over how excited I get over new dolls.  Seriously.   :P

Brags / Yay! Gloom and Bloom Cleo and more
« on: February 03, 2015, 04:25:09 PM »
I found her today at Target.  I'm so happy I loved her just as much in person as in pictures.  She is my favorite Cleo by far.




Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


I also finally bought Hatastic Cedar.  Couldn't wait any longer and ordered her from Amazon.  She's very sweet and I just love her coral dress.



Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


And last is Mirror Beach Maddie... she was very much an impulse buy.



But I love her.  She's just so... very cute.

Brags / I couldn't not
« on: November 30, 2014, 05:05:50 PM »
Not as awesome as $5 (congrats octocorn!) each but I did stumble onto the BOGO sale at TRU today.  I was originally looking to replace my Lagoona with the smeared freckles but I found so much more.  I broke.

I picked out my first 3 easily but I it was a long time before I spotted Vandela.




Vandela


I like her hat.  It feels like a fruit roll-up without being sticky.   I also love the spooky background of her box.   I'm keeping it.



Her dress is so pretty!  I'm keeping the pink chains but I love her dress so much.  That belt.  The material isn't the best quality but the contrast it provides is very appealing.  It's still soft to the touch as is the rest of her dress.  The chains also go back on nicely.

I'm not so fond of her eyes and lip colors but they are starting to grow on me.  Especially as her lips match the peach in her dress and hat.



I like her better in her hat.


Lagoona






I'm so glad I found her.  I was really worried about that hair, but it looks great.

Twyla


I have never wanted Twyla until this line.  She's just so... so cute!  She makes you want to give her milk and cookies.


Toralei


I really wasn't going to buy her until I saw...




THIS!          How was I not forewarned??   I need to pay closer attention to some topics.

Brags / scaremester catty noir
« on: September 30, 2014, 03:50:24 PM »
I don't remember wanting her... but when I saw her, she was just too irresistible.

It started with her shoes...




They're so cute and perfect!  I love them.

The rest of her is pretty cute too.  I'm surprised I'm so taken with her because I really didn't feel much for her sig doll. 







So adorable.


I also found Coffin Bean Robecca but that was a while back.  She's very pretty.  But she has these click knees that make her stand like this:




Maybe they're made to look like the box?  So funny.

Brags / Freaky Fusion Operetta and Friends
« on: July 27, 2014, 10:01:29 PM »
I haven't done a brag in months and so I thought I'd show off my loot.  :D

Plus, I found Operetta today and I'm super excited.  I've never loved an Operetta before.  She's just amazing and so pretty!




That outfit! <3


That mask!  <3


She has the BEST shoes. 


Cleolei is so cute.  I want to find one with perrrfect eyes but I'm keeping this girl too.


Avea is also looking very elegant.  And hey... so that's where that necklace went too... how...  :dontgetit:


I was not planning on keeping this Venus.  She grew on me. 


I waited forever to find these two.  Every weekend for three months I drove to TRU, just for Scarah.  I adore that white coat and matching boots.  It's unlikely I'll dress her in something else.  DT Robecca was at a Walgreens.  I never saw her anywhere else.  Strange.  She has the silkiest hair and I like that she's smiling.



Isn't she gorgeous in this dress Melissa made???  Hefty commissioned it for Spring Swap.  It looks so good on her.  Frankie!! You're a such a doll!

Sales / Nude EAH and MH dolls
« on: April 27, 2014, 10:10:21 PM »
Hi,  these are some of my extra dolls that have been hanging around.  They all belonged to me and have basically been sitting in a box and sharing stories.  They need homes where someone will love and dress them.  Please forgive some of these pictures  for being a bit grey and gloomy due to the natural light fleeing the room. 

Would prefer to ship in US for tracking purposes.  Will ship in padded envelope. I am also brightberry on the MLParena. 


Shipping within the continental US is $4 for one doll.  Naturally, that will change if you want more than one. :)






Nude Poppy with stand $6 plus Shipping

She has purple speckles on her forehead under her hair (see spoiler).  Her hair naturally falls over them, but they don't seem to be easy to remove.  I touched them lightly with a magic eraser, but haven't tried any heavy scrubbing. I don't want to scratch her up.  I also washed out the glue in her hair.  It was... unattractive.   It feels very silky now. Poppy will come with her ear rings.


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.




Nude Hatastic Cerise with stand $6 plus Shipping

Please notice, her black gloved hands have been switched with my sig Cerise's hands.



Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.



Nude Twyla with stand, $4 plus shipping.

She has bad box hair and it feels a bit tacky to the touch.


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.



Nude Ghoul Sports Venus no stand  $4 plus shipping

Her hair is very soft and nice.



Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.




Nude Scaris Lagoona with black stand $4 plus shipping



Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Nude Dot Dead Operetta with black stand $3 plus shipping
She has box hair


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.





SOLD Hatastic Maddie with Stock and stand $7 plus shipping




Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


SOLD  Nude Coffin Bean Robecca with black stand
Her hair is soft and not sticky, but still needs work.  She has interesting clicky knees.  They only move in 3 different positions.  I personally like them but I had to choose between her and dead tired, so I went with Dead Tired. :)


Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

SOLD   Nude Art Class Robecca with black stand

Trader Support / Best way to package a doll?
« on: December 19, 2013, 06:05:46 AM »
Hoping learning more will make me brave enough to sell a doll.   :blush:   :blush:    :blush:  So for all you great sellers out there...

What the best way to mail a single deboxed mh?  Is there any standard packaging that fits them?  Do you always use tracking?

What monsters are you looking forward to buying? 

I love, love, love the Release list  by Mandy and spend a lot of time looking through it daydreaming about finding my next favorite doll.

Draculaura's Darkroom / This seems like the forum to put these...

A little cliche... but it was fun taking pics in front of flowers.  I do believe they fell down a rabbit hole.

Introductions! / Hello Monster High Arena
« on: June 16, 2013, 09:48:18 PM »
I'm brightberry from mlparena.  I tend to be all over the place when collecting. A little of this and a little of that.  I like all things cute and toylike.  I had no idea I would fall for dolls though!

So far, I've vowed to only collect frankies.  Today didn't go so well but I'm sure it will never, ever happen again. Right?

I look forward to seeing everyone's dolls, stories and brags!  I love looking at everyone's collections.

Sooo... I took the so-called Target "sale" as an excuse to expand my MH collection.  These will be my only 4 MH dolls... I swear!  Well, except for 13 Wishes.  But... who can say no to her?





^This is my dress up dolly and my secret fave.


I... couldn't say no any longer,
especially when I realized she was disappearing.
I really like the green in her hair.


Cutes!


I love her outfit.


^Showing off her shoes.



I wish I had used another camera besides my phone. It was an impulse photo session.
