Monster Discussion / Monster High G2 Canon Discussion Thread
« on: February 07, 2017, 03:09:58 PM »
Since Electrified is right around the corner and we have confirmation of a Fall 2017 movie I figured a thread about the reboot's newly established canon would serve those of us who follow it well.

Do you like the new direction? Do you dislike the new direction? What are your theories and ideas?

I suppose I should start with the fact that I don't expect any of the upcoming canon to be very uh, strong I guess? Monster High had 4 different canons that all regularly contradicted each other while still taking concepts from each other with no warning. It's a bit late in the game to be mad about a lack of continuity imo. Especially since WtMH is a completely clean slate. There's still a lot of time for them to address stuff and build on the first movie but I have...several grievances.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

DESPITE all of this, I enjoy the world they're creating and I think there's a lot they can do in the coming years. Too bad it'll all have to be tied to movies since the diaries are gone and webisodes (if they return) are probably going to be slice of life but y'know. Them's the breaks. Let's get talking!

Brags / Maul Monsteristas! <3
« on: February 05, 2017, 12:30:06 PM »
I'm still a little in shock over it but I scored the Maul Monsteristas 5-pack!  :green: :green: :green:

Including shipping it ended up at 56.12! That's only a few dollars over what it would've cost if I'd got it for retail! The seller was even nice enough to include some of the packaging art when I asked for it!!!! I had honestly given up on having all 5 of them but it feels so good to cross them off my "never ever going to happen" list :).

I can't wait until they get here. Pics will be forthcoming.

Clawdeen's Closet / Can EAH boys wear descendants pants?
« on: February 04, 2017, 09:16:32 PM »
I've seen a review that showed EAH pants fit Descendants okay (they're a bit loose, but the disparity isn't nearly as large as the one between EAH and DD girls), which naturally means that DD pants would be tight on EAH. I'm just wondering how tight they are or if they can even wear them at all.

Monster Discussion / New Stuff!
« on: December 13, 2016, 08:11:50 PM »
More semi-articulated dolls with reused makeup. I think lagoona's lipstick is a little more orangey if you squint. How many Frankie's with a side part do we need.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01IT3UU8Q

I'm more excited about the playset itself than the doll that comes with it. I wish these were like the fright roast cafe where it's JUST the playset. I love Frankie's desk lamp and skull ornament and Lagoona's ghost toast.

Customs / Leg swapping between EAH and MH
« on: November 26, 2016, 11:01:26 AM »
See this is what I get for putting getting my supplies off >: P. I'm going to be customizing my Daring soon, but I'm having trouble finding Alistair for a reasonable price so I thought of something: Would it be possible to leg swap Daring with Dance the Fright Away Deuce? I don't remember who it was unfortunately, but somebody in the shoutbox mentioned that they managed to remove the reboot MH legs the same way the EAH legs come off. I think they said it was a little harder to get them back on but it still worked. I'm assuming the new male body has the same system.

Has anyone tried this with the girls or am I going to have to be the guinea pig?

Draculaura's Darkroom / Show Me FR Catty in BYBY Stock!
« on: November 21, 2016, 11:25:23 AM »
I finally decided to part ways with my New Scaremester Catty and I've decided her replacement is going to be Fierce Rockers (since I also want that Toralei). One problem though: I'm not super in love with her outfit  ^^;. I have always liked BYBY Catty's outfit though (and conversely, not been terribly fond of the doll wearing it). I can visualize what the switch would look like, but it'd probably be better to make sure I like it. Thank you for considering!

Ever After High Discussion / New Bios
« on: November 03, 2016, 11:19:30 AM »
Jillian, Nina, Meeshell, Farrah, and Melody have finally been added to website.

Things of note:
  • Jillian's bio states her roomate is Cari Pillar, but Nina's says that she's Jillian's roomate
  • Jillian has a crush on tiny
  • Meeshell's bio might just be the funniest one they've ever made. I like her infinitely more now than I did before
  • Meeshell's name is spelled wrong on her page
  • According to Farrah Meeshell's last name is still L'Mer
  • Farrah's bio is in the third person for some reason
  • Farrah had a crush on Hunter when she was a kid but gave him up when he and Ashlynn started dating (awwww :()

Anyone got any ideas why these are so different from the ones on the boxes?

It should be noted that I often cannot ship out until the weekend. If you buy something on a weekday, it's best to assume I won't be able to get it out until the upcoming Saturday. I am willing to hold dolls for a little while until you can pay for them. I am also willing to separate the stock from the doll.

Dolls

Gilda Goldstag - $20
There's something a little wonky with her legs, I never noticed it until I took her down from my shelf. I was wrong, her legs are fine.

Monster Discussion / Lots of Looks Frankie Stein
« on: October 18, 2016, 10:18:36 AM »
Giving this thing its own thread so peeps can talk about it. I wonder if she's going to be a one off or if we'll get this as it's own line and Frankie is just the first. I really love the sound of it from the product description.
Quote
Frankie Stein doll wears a sweet dress with a graphic print and collared detail on the bodice and a signature plaid on the puffed skirt. A dress with a black and white lightning bolt print stuns with yellow trim and a red sash. Pair the striped gray tank with the blue pants for a monstrously cool look or with the boldly printed shorts for summery sporty style. Silvery boots, black heels and a silvery quilt-detailed clutch amp up any combination.

Has anyone else noticed that the reboot is kind of obsessed with giving us tons of clothes? They brought back the fashion packs, made those day-to-night fashion things (which are basically just expensive accessory packs) and now this. I'm going to go ahead and assume she'll only be partially articulated but I wonder what her price is, not that that'll tell us anything. I hope the accessories are new moulds.

Monster Discussion / Party Hair Draculaura
« on: October 13, 2016, 11:17:25 PM »
Apparently this is her https://www.instagram.com/p/BLiBxduDZis/ and there are more photos here
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I maintain that Clawdeen or Lagoona should've had the hair doll (clawdeen's hair grows constantly and lagoona's blue streaks are from pool chlorine if I remember correctly, so there's 'neverending hair' and 'water change' right there) but I already like her more than Frankie's hair doll. I adore her makeup and the tiered dress isn't bad either.

Ever After High Discussion / Heartstruck Cupid Hairstyle Suggestions
« on: October 07, 2016, 09:39:06 AM »
Exactly what it says on the tin y'all :P. I've had HS Cupid for a while now and ever since I took her out of the box and really got a good look at her I've been thinking that a hairstyle that pulls her hair off the back of the wings would make her perfect. She's already pretty busy, the hair just pushes it over into chaotic.

Unfortunately after like, an hour of scouring pinterest for styles I'm still not enthralled with any, so I thought I'd reach out for suggestions! I'm looking for a hairstyle that doesn't require cutting her hair but still pulls the hair up.

Ever After High Discussion / Birthday Ball Budget Cuts
« on: September 27, 2016, 12:04:54 PM »
An incredibly weird thing I noticed while on the TRU website. Birthday Ball Blondie and Duchess do not have their necklaces in the stock photos and there is no mention of a necklace in the description. There's also something wonky going on with the articulation. It looks like they lost their wrist joints la boltin' bicylce frankie





Cupid's description omits her necklace/wings as well, but she still has them in the photos. I guess we should keep an eye out for these?

Monster Discussion / Monster High Mini Mania
« on: September 21, 2016, 05:01:02 PM »
I'm surprised that no one made a thread for the game yet (unless I missed it or something). So who plays it?

I admit the number of g1 backgrounders who show up in it makes me a little nostalgic (puma guy! plant head girl!), and for some reason I really love how heath looks in it (i know we don't have confirmation it's heath but who else could it be?) If he makes his return in the reboot I hope he looks a little like the mini.

I've been having a lot of fun, I just really wish gems were easier to earn  -_- and I still have no idea why the number on sign on the door keeps going up. Plus has anyone ever gotten a dropped mini from one of the VIP customers? All I usually get is coins.

Customs / First reroot advice - Did I buy enough?
« on: September 11, 2016, 06:16:41 PM »
So after scouring the threads for advice (and finding a good amount of it) I decided to make a specific thread about my little project. This is going to be my first reroot and I know from previous experience that I have a tendency to bite off more than I can chew with things like this, so I thought I'd get some feedback on the difficulty level of what I want.

The doll in question is an art class draculaura and I want to give her a short bob, similar to what she would've had if her roller maze doll had ever been made. Possibly a little longer than that but idk.



The biggest difference is that rather than having only pink streaks in her hair, I want to give her pink and yellow streaks. I also want the streaks to be rooted down to the scalp rather than only being on the top of the hair (a pet peeve of mine). If possible I'd also like to do her bangs. They look a lot like the bangs on Photo Booth Ghouls Frankie to me, so I'm not sure how to go about that.


Also I'd love if anyone could provide a color match for AC Drac's streaks, the texture of the hair feels like it's all saran but I'm having trouble pinpointing colors.

So what do you think? Is this a good project for a beginner or should I revise?

Draculaura's Darkroom / ReversedUser's Photostream
« on: September 07, 2016, 12:39:18 PM »
Finally figured out how to post pictures so I thought I'd start this up. None of them are very good I'm afraid  ^^; but I'm happy with them. First up is Apple wearing BB Rosabella's glasses



I think they really suit her!

Next is my fully customized Crystal. She has DDG Abbey's belt, coffin bean abbey's bracelet and sig abbey's necklace. The owl is from an lps plug-n-play game I got as a gift when I was a kid. Dunno why I still have it but it perches on her arm perfectly despite being a little heavy (and out of her color scheme)


Finally we have one of my newest additions, the $10 budget frankie on an articulated body. This is actually one of my first redresses and I'm pretty proud of it.


I still think she needs a bit more red on her lower half. Maybe if I paint her shoes I'll add some red accents. Her shoes and accessories are amazing imo, some of my favorites in a while.

Monster Discussion / Flawlessness
« on: August 29, 2016, 07:55:08 AM »
In preparation for my inevitable purchase of the fashion packs and IHF whisp, I decided to switch up my main display and I put NS Gigi out so she could be by her sister. About an hour later a thought suddenly struck me: New Scaremester Gigi might be one of my favorite MH dolls ever released. I just think she's amazingly well executed from head to toe. This got me thinking about what other people's flawless faves are! So, what are some mh (or eah) dolls that you think are completely perfect oob without any tweaking?
