Introductions! / Lets try again!
« on: April 22, 2016, 04:35:06 AM »

So this is my second time posting here, I hope it's okay.
I joined this site about a year ago fuelled by my love for EAH dolls. Well a lot of things happened since then and when too many things went wrong I decided to draw back from almost all my social platforms, but it seems I can't quite stay away from dolls after all.

I live in the Netherlands and I'm 19 years old. Been collecting for about a year with the main focus on EAH, despite having more MH dolls lol. I also collect Disney dolls and I'm currently trying to customise a few Obitsu dolls. I'm also in the process of restoring Mattel Winx Club dolls to hopefully use for customs in the future.

I do a whole lot on cosplay, but recently dropped out school (fashion and dressmaking course) because the stress just got too much for me. This triggered an examination and I just got diagnosed with autism. I'm not very good at being social, but I'm looking to make some new friends. I'll try my best!

Customs / Re: Dyeing kanekalon hair

The thing about kanekalon is that you can't dye it lighter. And the base colour will always influence the final colour of the dye. So the best hair type is always white or white blonde.
A lot of cosplayers go through this process, so here's a bunch of tuts for dyeing kanekalon fibre. I hope it'll help out!

here goes mine!
I don't think most of the dolls do enough justice to their character designs. For example I love Twyla, but her doll just has this weird wide face. I thought it was because of the stock pics but when I saw her in person I still thought it looked bad. So in the end I didn't buy her. And now I feel guilty for not getting her when I had the chance!!

I'm not very experienced but when I was curling the hair on my Maddie for a custom Thronecoming doll I also used a thin layer of water mixed with tacky glue. I'm a very impatient person so when I curled her hair I put it around straws, dumped it in the boiling water a few times, waited for it to cool off and dry a little, took out the straws very carefully and then coated my fingers with the water/glue mixture and shaped the curls a little. You can see the end result here Maybe this helps a little?

Hello!! So here I am again to share my Maddie outfit.
Since I don't have any spares I used my Signature Maddie to display her. Her hair was my first attempt at styling

Wanted / Looking for EAHs
« on: April 06, 2015, 07:40:17 AM »

I'm looking for any type of nude EAH doll you might have.
Especially looking for
I'm also looking for any signature doll (currently only have Apple and Maddie) and Spring Unsprung
I'm also looking for any Venus, Rochelle and Haunted Student Spirits
I don't care for the boxes, as long as their fashion and accessories are from the original release.

Please note though; I live in the Netherlands
So if you could check shipping before you message me that'd help out a lot, since I can't really afford to spend $5 on a doll and then $30 for shipping.
But if you have a larger amount of dolls you want to get rid of it might work out. So please let me know!

Thank you for all the replies.
i kind of wanted to throw in a surprise and post my first piece of custom clothing when I realised I completely forgot one of the layers of Maddie's skirt (working on Thronecoming Maddie). Oh well 8D

Nice to meet you!

Hello,  This is my introduction post, so here we go!!

I became a fan of Ever After High quite a while ago, since I love anything that has fairytales in it. Soon after I told my girlfriend she introduced me to Monster High. It didn't really catch on at first, but after following more and more EAH blogs on tumblr I began getting MH blogs recommended, so I figured I'd give it a try. Checking out the dolls and falling in love with their designs.

I live in the Netherlands. Which is a curse. As most toy stores only sell 4 MH dolls and they all recently stopped with selling EAH dolls all together. I'm hoping there might be more collectors on here from the Netherlands!
Recently I've started with (trying) to make my own doll clothes. Since there are many EAH dolls that never got released despite being in the wepisodes. I'm hoping I can learn from everyone here and maybe find some cheap dolls for customisation purposes!
