I've gone thru this over the years myself.

I know a lot of people use the rule, If you haven't used it in over 1 year, sell, toss or donate it.
For me, I have to ask myself which dolls I really love, which ones am I "meh" about, and which ones am I no longer interested in?  I remember I used to collect every budget-line celeb doll that was Barbie size:  New Kids on The Block, Spice Girls, Vitamin C, Blossom, etc.   Over time I didn't really like them that much, and kept only things like clothing I liked or shoes.  I donated many of them, and I think I still have some I could sell. (Hmmm...) So, what I suggest is you take a hard look at the dolls you  have and decide.

I found reboot sig Cleo & Clawdeen on eBay for $14.99 each from Target.  I was going to just get Cleo & would've had to have paid shipping, so I looked to see if they had Clawdeen too.  They did, and as a result shipping was free!  I ended up paying the same price I would've if I'd gone to the store and gotten them.  YAY free shipping!

Found one of the Takara Jenny AGIS dolls, shop clerk Moe:

Why they named her "Moe" is puzzling to me.  Why is she named after a 3 Stooges character?

I would love to find a purse that could accommodate a doll or 2.  Back in the day, they had purses to hold Dawn (6.5 inch doll) dolls, I'm surprised there hasn't been a purse for little girls to carry their Barbies in!

Or has there?  Is there?

Customs / Re: Arm Articulation
« on: August 13, 2017, 04:45:10 PM »
These are just my thoughts, so take them for what they're worth....

I thnk you definitely have the right idea.  If you take a look at the way a MH or EAH arm joint is constructed, it's similar to this, except of course it's plastic.   A few years ago, metal was used to create the joints and in most (if not all?) cases the arms or hands couldn't be removed. 

You may want to take a look at this video on how someone articulated the arms and wrists of a Bratz doll.  My concern with their method is they're inserting metal or wire into vinyl, which is not a good idea since they react with the vinyl and will cause green spots.  If you could find a plastic alternative that would be better.

BTW if anyone knows how to articulate the *legs* of a doll let me know!

I purchased a "lot" of MH, EAH & Descendants dolls including a couple Abbeys, EAH Justine & Descendants Mal. One of the Abbeys (Dead Tired) is a duplicate so I will probably try to sell her or use as trade bait.

Just purchased a set of self-threading needles.  I find they are so much easier to thread than regular ones and they work well for hand sewing.

Oh heck yes, I get a lot of the comments that neon_jellyfish mentioned.  My brothers just don't get why I love dolls.  For years my coworkers didn't understand either, until we discussed her childhood doll collection (which she still owns) and she discovered how valuable hers were. 

My problem is I sometimes tend to sacrifice quality for wonkiness, especially if I'm in a store and there are ppl - especially teens - who wander into the aisle and make fun of the dolls.  When they're around I try not to do anything, for fear that they'll see me looking at the doll stuff and then poke fun at me next.

I have always been a doll collector.  Since I was 4 years old I've been hooked on Barbie and dolls like her.  (I'm 52 now.)

My babysitter's daughters could be what helped me discover fashion dolls, I remember they had real Barbies and they were so cool, and that may be why my parents got me a clone doll.  I got 2 Barbie clones when I was 4, that was 1969..."Dollikin"...they were strung together but fully articulated.  I think I liked the fact that they were small (I'd had baby dolls and they seemed big to me) and fun to dress.  I carried one or the other everywhere.   I finally got my first real Barbies for Christmas in 1970, that made me fall in looove with her.  Malibu Barbie, Ken and Francie, along with a Country Camper, homemade clothes by my (late) Grandma, and a carry case.  I also got some clone playsets, but I think that wasn't until a year or 2 later.

I still have all my childhood Barbies & everything that went with them.  The Dollikins fell apart but I still keep them in their own case.

I was finally able to afford one of the Fashionistas, so I got Fab Fringe for only $4 at Wal-Mart.  I have since darkened her face and put her & her outfit on a curvy body.  I also picked up 4 of the new dresses for $2.44 each. :)

Customs / Re: Customs I want to make/see made
« on: July 28, 2017, 10:36:28 AM »
Most of the customs I want to see made are EAH and MH characters or backgrounders:  Johnny Spirit, Eyera, Jacko Lantern, maybe a slight variation on Zori Weatherbolt, Hopper Croakington, Sparrow Hood, and a few others whose names escape me.

Since I'm on vacation next week, I'm hoping to start work on Hopper, Johnny Spirit, and maybe some others.
