Customs / ReversedUser's Customs
« on: May 25, 2017, 05:57:35 PM »
Exactly was it says on the tin! I've been meaning to make this thread so I can just put all my stuff in one place.

First we have my progress on my first reroot. I started her around winter break but then second semester started kicking my butt so she fell to the wayside. Now that it's summer I'm hoping to get back on the horse.




I modified my Justine quite a while ago. Probably Spring Break? I didn't like how her corset ruined the silhouette of her skirt so I cut off the sections that wrapped around her hips. I also gave her Bunny's earrings (they kinda look like trees if you squint), another bracelet, and a pair of tights.


Farrah got an upgrade too. The later signatures really don't measure up to the first wave and I like Farrah so I wanted her to be on that level (kinda). I gave her Kiyomi's belt and bracelet because I thought the pink would look nice. The other bracelet is from IHF Whisp I think. I know the chains are really out of place but the cherry blossoms actually kind of look like stars to me so she's keeping it.


I'm really proud of her earrings. I bought these wand charms to go on her headband (somehow) but they work better here.




That's all the old stuff. More recently (as in like, within the past couple of days) I've been painting more accessories for my ghouls. A lot of them turned out sloppier than I wanted, so eventually I'll have to back and fix them some more but these have been on my radar for months so it feels good to get them off my mind.

First Day of School Draculaura's shoes finally got some black paint on their soles/heels. They actually got another coat after I took this pic and I cleaned up the edges but I haven't taken a 2nd pic yet.


Cleo's shoes got detailed as well.


So did Lagoona's. I cleaned up hers as well after this.


I'm not super happy with how Frankie's turned out though. I used my small detail brush to do the stitches on the side but they didn't come out as clean as I wanted. Maybe I needed an even smaller brush? They look cute from a distance though.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

My favorite one out of these last few days of painting have been these shoes for Raven. I thought it was kind of sad that the Spellbinding Raven didn't get her own shoe mould when the REA Apple did so I bought a pair of the Fearfully Feisty Inner Monster Shoes and painted them up for her! They turned out both better and worse than I'd hoped. I wish the black had been able to come out more.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I also seriously pumped up my CGI accurate customs of the First Day at School Ghouls. Draculaura still needs a pair of leggings and Clawdeen needs a belt but I'm almost there! The only one left is Cleo, who I'm replacing with her Ghoul's Beast Pet release bc I like her hair better :P

Shoes (see what I meant about Frankie's looking fine from a distance?)

Draculaura's Darkroom / Show me face variants!
« on: March 29, 2017, 08:15:11 PM »
What the title says! I've recently become curious about facial variation in the dolls (specifically my Sig Blondie) so I'd like to see her releases the most but show me all the variants! Monster High and Ever After High!

Customs / What do you do with the bodies?
« on: March 24, 2017, 09:28:33 PM »
Wow that title sounds a lot more ominous than I intended. You get the gist though.

Despite my best efforts I have become the owner of several decapitated doll bodies and in the near future will be the owner of several more. Personally, I don't like having extra parts around. It just bugs me to see stuff going to waste, but I don't want to throw them out either and selling more limited bodies doesn't always yield results. I don't body swap very often for pretty much all of these reasons (not being hung up on articulation has it's benefits).

So I have to ask, what do you guys do with the bodies?

Monster Discussion / Possible outfits from new lines?
« on: March 19, 2017, 10:42:39 PM »
I saw some things on instagram the other night that piqued my interest and I've been debating whether to post them here for fear that they're like, really good customs but I'm pretty sure they're real deal rejects from the factory or w/e. I even went spelunking through the previous merch and didn't find any matches so the egg is fully on my face if this is just junk.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BRzav8blYpi/: At first I thought B15 was just Vandala's stock but upon closer inspection it's actually a Storm-esque bodysuit with hieroglyphic print and a bandage cape. It kind of looks like a Power Ghouls Cleo get up, or maybe a cross between Ghouls' Rule and Cleolei.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BRza_bYFSpa/: A10 is a little harder to place but the drippy detail on the shirt is pretty in line with general MH motifs. It also fits this Clawdeen (as in it isn't barbie sized or anything), if anything it looks a bit loose which I'm pretty sure is because the doll is G1. I imagine this could belong to a new character but who knows Ghoulia had drip motifs and red/grey/white just sayin'. B10 is for Monster Family Draculaura so that's not much of a mystery.

Thoughts? Rebuttals? We're pretty in the dark about releases right now, NYTF wasn't exceptionally exciting and so far we've only had the sports line as a big surprise. If I'm right, I'm excited.

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/B01IT3UU54

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?

Sales / ReversedUser Sells Things
« on: October 29, 2016, 11:52:21 AM »
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.

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?
