First of all I would recommend you working on a couple of practice heads first. This way if you make a mistake you haven't ruined anything special. I also recommend you get a pair of goggles to wear because there will be bits of vinyl flying and you don't want anything to get into your eyes.
Take a lot of time when working on your dolls.

Well first, it depends on the body. If it's your standard MH/EAH body, and has articulation and all the limbs intact, I put it in a bin that I keep of just bodies and body parts. Since I'm often doing rebodies or occasionally get a nice MH/EAH head with a bad body, they come in handy.
If it's got some serious issues, like a broken leg, and it's not a CAM type body, it will get tossed. If it has a missing neck peg, that can be remedied easily.
I only wish I could get more MH/EAH flesh toned boy bodies, because I am always in need of them....

My first job was actually temporary work. I've always worked in the clerical/secretarial field, and in the spring and summer of 1985 I took on temporary assignments with various places. My favorite assignment was when I initially had a 2 week "job" at a state agency, doing secretarial work as well transcribing letters for the Commissioner. I loved it. I was there about a month and then the assignment ended.
I also had a seasonal job in retail in 1987 (Christmas season) which I hated. But in 1988 I applied for a job with my current employer, and was hired on the spot. I've been there almost 30 years now. God led me to that job. I worked in the same office for 27 years and it was great when I first started but then my boss retired and the new one was a micromanaging unappreciative miserable tightwad of a woman. Last year after a lot of prayer I transferred to another office, and I now work for the sweetest, friendliest, funniest, most appreciative boss I have ever had. I actually enjoy going to work now because of him. Change is good!

I'm going to have to add Back to School to the Least category. Some of the dolls are nice but the line itself has so many issues. First the budgets and the deluxe dolls don't even have the same theme. It's like they took a random budget line and gave them school accessories.
Now that you mention that, it does! It's like they just threw together a few things and said, "Here's our back to school line. The kids won't notice that nothing goes together, they're too little."

I love the sig dolls, all of them. Except for Daring's molded hair, they're all perfect.
I love the TTW line, I have all of the dolls from it and find them so pretty.
Same for the Enchanted Picnic dolls. Very pretty dolls, reasonably priced, and full articulation (bonus!).
I do like the Birthday Ball and Book Party dolls too, but am trying to find some BB ones with the jointed wrists.
Least faves, for now, are the Ballet dolls (sooooooooo boring and cheap), the smiley face dolls and the 2017 new stuff. The 2017 lines look so cheap and IMO don't really fit in with the theme of EAH. What happened to the royal & rebel looks? :*(Post Merge: March 20, 2017, 07:42:39 AM
Epic Winter could have been awesome if they had stuck to the prototypes and didn't cheap out.
Agree. Epic Winter was more like Epic Failure.

They sound like the fabric they used to make with pre-printed doll clothes patterns on them, that you used to be able to buy at the store.
I wish they made some for MH/EAH sized dolls!

Oh I know the Disney princess guys heads would be too small. My problem isn't really with the heads, but rather the height of the bodies.
Looks like Justin Beiber dolls have the same height so I could use him, altho his skintone will need a repaint.

no problem, sorry I couldn't give you better news....but at least there are other ways to fix the problem.

Happy birthday to you, Robina!!
Hope you have a fun and festive day!

On the bright side, at least EAH is making a line that's actually school related.
Nothing here really stands out to me. Where are the new sigs? :/
I don't think we're going to see any new sigs....JMO....
and while I'm glad they are giving EAH one (final?) try at making a profit, I reeeeeeeeally don't think a back to school line where the dolls seem so "dressed down" compared to what they wore before makes sense. The patterns on those dresses look almost (?) silk screened. For some reason, when I look at them I feel like they commissioned an Alibaba vendor or supplier to make them, and this is the result.
If they're trying to quietly kill off this line, they'll succeed.
(again - all JMO)

Some of those clothes and shoes are cute, but not worth paying full price, and certainly not for limited articulation. Sorry Mattel but you spoiled me.

You could get away with some height variations since the girls are different heights. The problem is making sure the body to head ratio is similar.
Yes, that was my thinking too. Altho I don't want all of my customs to be taller than their EAH counterparts.

Hmm, how about Barbie Fashionista? Ken and the other dudes? I saw someone here but Daring's head on a Ken body, so there is a possibility.
I'm definitely giving that some thought since my Daring needs a body. I just wondered if Fashionistas Ken is the same height or not. Or....if it's possible to shorten his legs, like a MH doll.
Also as a heads up, Toys R Us has the Alistair/Bunny two pack on clearance for $14.98, with an additional 15% off on clearance merch right now! It's a great time to pick up some packs for bait.
I may have to do that! I don't have much money right now tho. :/

I found a good price on a nude Sparklizer Crystal doll, only $9.
I kinda like her hair better than sig Crystal's but maybe I will change my mind when she arrives. I got her for her legs, LOL.

Soooo....I am in the process of trying to create some custom guys for my EAH collection....making my own versions of characters like Hopper, Sparrow, Humphrey, etc. But trying to find bait dolls to use can be expen$ive. Sure, I could probably get Hunter cheap, but then I'd have to repaint the skintone. Alistair and Dexter average around $20 or more on the 'bay, and if there are less ex
I'm trying to find out if there are any other boy dolls that are the same height as the EAH ones. I know that MH guys are similar in size but only Deuce & Jackson are flesh toned. I also know Descendants are similar too. I saw some jointed male dolls on Aliexpress that I thought might work, since I know they sometimes are smaller than Ken dolls. Of course they'd need their skintone repainted, but they would probably be inexpensive. I have some My Scene guys I found for cheap that I could use, but they're taller.
Are there any other boy dolls that are the same size as the EAH ones? Or....are there any that I could "shorten" (like some have done the mansters) so they're the same height? I don't want any without articulation.
