Off Topic / Prettie Girls

It will be interesting to see what changes come with the One World/Tonner merger, won't it? I hope we'll see new dolls, and maybe younger teen girls to go with them. (PGs have gorgeous faces, but they look well out of their teen years IMO.)

2 of them are coming up on Amazon at half price as of right now, if you have somebody who'd like one but they're not in your budget.

Monster Discussion / Mildew! Any suggestions?
« on: July 10, 2015, 09:22:38 PM »
The room where my MH have been on display has been having horrible moisture problems. As I was taking the dolls down to prepare for cleaning, my worst fear came true- at least three of my monsters have light mildew on their clothing. As they are sig Venus and Forbitten Love Clawd and Draculaura, I can't just go out and replace their stock. Anyone else had to deal with this, and what kind of luck did you have?  :cry:

TIA for any thoughts!

Brags / Grail, woohoo!

So there I was with birthday money from my husband, mom and FIL- and happened to look in on the Monster Sales thread....
Webarella. MIB and beautiful. Not getting her has been one of my few MH regrets, but the aftermarket prices ranged from high to just plain silly so she remained a lovely wish.
Thank you, Mothra Stewart, for helping achieve my grail doll.

Grail sticky! 5/28 michelle53

I have tried in two different browsers, and Monster High keeps coming up with '0 items'. Unless they're eliminating that section :/, this doesn't seem likely...anyone else getting the same result?

Off Topic / Anyone else with nightshade intolerance?
« on: October 20, 2014, 08:46:28 PM »
For those who clicked through because you're wondering what on earth I'm talking about:

There are a whole host of plants that are Solanaceae, or members of the same genus as the nightshade. And they aren't 'deadly' like their cousin, but contain substantial amounts of plant alkaloids that can cause painful inflammation, among other problems. Most people will never notice them, and happily consume potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and the foods that contain them.

Then there's the rest of us...we suddenly notice that the aches and pains that have been increasing over time, or have recently begun to plague us, worsen substantially when we eat a nice helping of mashed potatoes, marinara sauce, a splash of Sriracha or a commercial item seasoned with paprika. (And let's not even get started on potato starch/modified food starch/sodium starch glycolate A.)

So, any other nightshade-plagued Arena members dealing with this? Post here and let's give each other some support!

I had given up on getting Manny and Iris, (*and the jacket!*)  but thanks to suicidemilk23 that is no longer the case!  :biggrin:

Not near a camera right now, unfortunately. But they're a marvelous set. I can't decide whether to open the box or not- they display so well, but they're so different and cool that I really want to play with them.

Thanks <3 to my DH for being willing to splurge a little this year, what a great find!

Monster Discussion / MH panel at InConjunction, now with pics
« on: June 04, 2014, 09:26:07 PM »
As mentioned in the Monster Con thread, MH was suggested as a panel topic for this year's InCon- and guess what, it's in the programming list!
Any In-die-ana monsters (or anyone close enough to be convenient) attending the con? I've already put my name in to be on the panel, and would love to see more Arena members join in!
If you've never done this before- I won't lie and say it's not a bit scary. Even though there's usually no more than a couple dozen people attending a given panel, it's still both nervewracking and fun to be in the front of the room.  We can ask for multimedia assistance if someone wants to do a slideshow, and we can take dolls and props in for attendees to view. Panels are 1 hour, so if there are several people on the panel no one person has to carry the whole 50ish minutes.

If anyone wants to put their name on the participant list, InCon does require that you create an account:

This could be fun! :D

Brags / Dance Class, woohoo!

Our nearest Target finally got the 5-pack. I tried to walk by and tell myself they were too much. So much for that.  :P They're an adorable set, and I'm thrilled to finally have a Gil.

Buy/Sell/Trades / Last call for DOTD Clawdeen before eBay! Now on hold
« on: August 28, 2013, 09:21:42 PM »
If no one's looking for a DOTD Clawdeen, I'll try my luck on the Bay of Evil.

Hi, putting my NRFB doll for sale. Hope she can complete someone's DOTD set!

Cleo is sold. $35.00, plus shipping. I can supply pictures on request. Paypal or MC/V preferred, but I can do money orders if that's what you want!

I am on eBay as katya514 and have done a few transactions at the MLP arena. Send me any questions!.

NRFB Clawdeen available for $45 plus shipping.

I do ship internationally, the item will be declared a toy on the customs form. Just ask for a shipping cost estimate for your postal code and I will get it as soon as possible

On a whim I went to the 'Mart with some friends a little while ago. Promised myself that I wouldn't buy any dolls unless something really spectacular turned up, LOL.

(No idea why Imageshack flipped my images, and refuses to un-flip them. I'll work on that)

I gasped and grabbed her off the shelf like she was about to vanish into thin air. There were a Venus and a Rochelle on the shelf as well, so apparently somebody turned up a box that had been buried in the stockroom. Her package is pretty banged up, but everything is there-even her ring.

So keep an eye on the shelves- as the stores start clearing out things with a mind toward the holiday restock/resets, who knows what might turn up!
(no, I checked, she was the only Nefera there.)

Introductions! / Greetings and salutations!

:peeks in:

Hi, all! Good to see a lot of familiar names, and some new folks as well. I'll mainly just be perching on a cloud and listening for right now, but hope to get some monster pics going soon!

(p.s.- Mods, what's the MHA position on monster hybrids? Persis and Zori, my Clawdeen/Fashionista girls, would really like to know. :)
