Buy/Sell/Trades / Tictactoe's SunShower Swap Wishlist!
« on: April 27, 2016, 11:40:55 AM »
Yay, my first arena swap! :D Super excited. Here's a brief list of stuff I like that would be suitable for the swap, I believe:

- I love miniatures, especially anything 1/6 doll sized (so sized for your typical MH or EAH doll). If you make them yourself that's even better! Anything cute and small makes me happy.

- Shopkins of any kind! I love blind bags. Just started collecting these so I don't have many yet.

- Cute novelty erasers in fun shapes.

- Any doll clothes or accessories, primarily that fit MH or EAH. Especially hats (cloth like beanies) or shoes. There's tons of cute stuff on Etsy.

- Any and all things MLP from any generation would make me happy! Again, blind bag figures are awesome.

- Littlest Pet Shop pets! Anything goes here. I like to collect and customize them.

- Fabric, charms, cool yarn, any art supplies or interesting odds and ends for crafting that I can use to customize dolls or sew clothes for them.

- Candy. <3 All chocolate is good chocolate. I also love fruity things. Surprise me!

- I love sugar skulls and day of the dead-themed stuff. Can't get enough of it.

I hope this helps! If I think of anything else I'll tack it on.

Customs / Tictactoe's Repaints & Such
« on: March 05, 2016, 10:25:23 AM »
So I decided I couldn't look at my CAM Vampire's awful faceup any longer and I dove headfirst into the repaint process. Did some homework, got my supplies and off I went. I figured it would be easier to do a CAM first so I didn't have to deal with the hair.

I did a sketch of her final look first so I'd have something to follow along with.



She turned out a bit more... uh... sinister looking than I intended but I feel like it suits her personality. Her eyes got a bit messy towards the end, I learned a lot as far as the order to paint the eyes in and next time I'll do more light layers with watered down paint. But hey, for my first one I'm cool with it.

So this is Estrie! Daughter of an estrie (a vampire-esque creature from Jewish folklore) and a traditional European vampire. Her parents obviously weren't that creative in naming her.



I have some gloss varnish coming on Tuesday that I'll add to her lips. :)

I welcome any tips or feedback anyone might have. I had a ton of fun with this... might tackle another one later today because I have a Frankie with some SERIOUS wonky eyes.

Introductions! / Hello from an old/new collector!
« on: January 30, 2016, 09:42:17 AM »
Hey guys, I'm Kelly (also known as tictactoe in the MLP arena but I do have an actual human name). I'm 26 and I live in Ohio - hopefully not forever because I can't handle the snow anymore. I was collecting MH dolls about two years ago for some time but simply ran out of space in my small apartment, and I felt bad condemning my girls and boys to a big box in my closet. :( But then we moved last summer and with a bit more space, I finally feel comfortable collecting again! So I'm getting sucked right back into the obsession, haha. Especially interested in repaints and customs this time around because GORGEOUS, omg. Nice to meet all of you! I should have some collection pics up at some point... I have some old ones I can dig out. I probably only have around 15 dolls total, all unboxed, but I do have a couple of gems and my favorite character overall would be Spectra because she was my first. Yay, MH! :love:
