any chance it could be made in other colors and without the added decoration? like just a plain sweater in the same basic style?
oh of course yes! it'd cost
$1.00 extra if its a color that i don't currently have, but i could absolutely do that for you if you wanted  ^.^ what color/colors did you have in mind?

Ohh, that's CUTE!! How seasonally appropriate! I always feel chilly when these wee tiny people don't have proper winter gear, but your girl looks downright toasty! <3
Oh, wow, that's super cute!
thank you both!! i'm actually trying to sell custom orders of these on etsy in case anyone is interested! :redface: i'm doing a little arena-discount though, you can buy one directly through me on here and it's only $6.50 shipped.

Brags / updated collection!

its been a long time, huh? i've been pretty busy lately so i havent had much time to come and check on the site much, but hey! better to start again now that i have time, and now that i got some new dolls i figured thatd be a good way to get back in the swing of things! ^.^ most were bought by myself over time but i received kitty, elle, and sour sweet (eqg) as gifts! i found the frankie marked down to $11 at my local walmart today. it's only the re-release, but i still cant believe how cheap it was! :yikes:

thank you for all of the responses.  i've considered and asked for professional help multiple times, but my dad never lets me follow through. every time i bring up the fact that i need help he just continues to say that it's all in my head, (duh! thats why they call it a mental illness!) and doesn't let me do anything or see anyone. i've stopped talking to him about it because of his constant refusal and misunderstanding. i'm homeschooled as well, so i can't talk to any school counselors or anything like that. i really don't know what to do at this point, almost every day is miserable for me and sadly talking about it doesn't seem to be helping me. i always feel tired and worn out no matter how much i sleep, but my dad continues to say that that's just because i'm not getting up and moving around, despite the fact that even when i do that it just exhausts me more. i've talked to my mom about this as well, and the only thing she responded with was (a very obviously hollow and meaningless) "i know, i'm sorry," followed with more (never fuffiled) promises to buy me things. she's constantly trying to lie her way back into my life and i want to forgive her, i do! i don't like holding grudges and if she'd just admit that what she did was horrible and she tried to make it up to me i'd forgive her in an instant, but all she seems to want to do is try to bribe me with hollow promises. i can't even let her use any excuses either due to the fact that she only married my dad in the first place for his money. she used to be a very cruel and manipulative person, and she may still be. i can't exactly say so for her now as i never see her or talk to her, but i'd imagine she's just the same as she's always been. i'm normally a very cheerful and kind person, but it's starting to get hard to just smile and be kind no matter what i'm feeling, which just makes the whole matter worse! i have a very, VERY low self esteem and often feel worthless/useless and one of the only qualities i like about myself is that i can be kind and i dont hold grudges.

this is my first post in this area and i'm feeling kind of down at the moment, so sorry if i make any typos/dont make sense in sentences sometimes. i also posted this on the mlparena, so if you saw it twice i apologize.  i decided to post it on here as well because i really need as much advice as i can get.  i hardly ever talk about this stuff in detail because i don't want to trouble the only person i can talk to about this stuff with it in fear of upsetting her, but i figured it was time to get all of this off of my chest. anyway, the reason i collect things like dolls and ponies now is because i never really had a chance to when i was younger. my parents got divorced when i was only 2, and i only really have one good memory from when they were together, and somehow my mom got custody of me after that. my mom was very... messy, to put it kindly, she tended to never really clean up so our houses were always dirty, and we always had to move due to either the owner of the house being very angry about how horribly it was kept or to her not wanting to pay bills. she wasn't very wise in relationships, so when i was young i had to deal with every abusive boyfriend of hers, putting me in some... not so pleasant situations. some pretty awful things happened to me and i'd rather not discuss them here, and i don't believe they're even appropriate for this site. moving on though, she was overall a very terrible mother and she would often rather read magazines and play games than pay attention to me, which is probably why i have issues with being ignored and need near instant validation before i begin to panic. she also had a history of just... leaving me places whenever it was my dad's turn to pick me up for the weekend. i clearly remember her leaving me in a parking lot once because my dad was late on picking me up due to traffic. that's also probably why i have severe abandonment issues, thanks mom! eugrh, moving on. she had also once taken me out of the state all the way to kentucky and enrolled me into a different school, without my dad even knowing about it! i was really really young so i had no idea what was happening, but it was a really miserable experience. for my birthday and holidays she never really got me anything or treated it like it was something special, and whenever i got new toys or things like that from my dad's side of the family they'd always get thrown away or sold so i could never really keep my things. to put things simply, she was an awful mom who put me in terrible situations that were harmful to my physical and mental health. this happened to me for years, from when i was 2 all the way up to when i was 7 years old. i now suspect i have several mental illnesses, including borderline personality disorder which is the absolutely worst of the bunch. i've had to deal with the symptoms for years, but only last year was i able to find out what exactly it was and put a name to it. i'm kind of going all over the place here, so sorry for that but i really just want to get everything out and off of my chest so i'm just kind of writing this as it comes to me. anyway, i think the thing that bothers me the most is that she doesnt seem to care about what she's done? i havent seen her in person in years but she found me on facebook and still tries to strike up conversation with me from time to time, mostly promising me gifts and such but never following through. she pretends like nothing she's done has ever happened and its just... so frustrating and upsetting! not to mention she hasnt EVER paid my dad child support, she owes YEARS of it but i'm too afraid of confrontation to press it, especially since she has two new kids who i feel were replacements for me once i tried to cut her out of my life. i don't know what i was really expecting to get out of this but i felt i needed to let it out somewhere. i'm almost starting to dislike my collection because every time i look at it or try to excuse the fact that i'm buying toys i just remember all of the things she's done to me and why i even have a desire to get these things in the first place. i just really dont know anymore, if anyone can give me advice on how to deal with this or just. anything, please let me know :sad:

i do like frankie, but i agree with what many people have said before me about the doll lines. it's sort of like how pinkie pie is with my little pony toys, she's always there no matter what, the amount of pink is tiring! :freak:
anyway though, her dolls do tend to be very pretty and i enjoy her character, but i feel if there was more diversity in the doll lines people would feel a lot more pleasantly about her.

Freaky Field Trip Gigi is one of my favorite dolls!  I think she's so pretty.  Congratulations on getting both dolls for such a good price!
thank you!! i absolutely love her dress, she's one of my favorites as well! i think the only dolls i want more than her are dead tired abbey and the sdcc whisp doll, she was definitely high up on my list!

hiya!! after a few days of looking in stores, i FINALLY found some affordable dolls that i really wanted!! i only paid $9 per doll, and i love them both!! i had a bait mix-matched CAM before this, but i don't really count that since its not part of my collection.

i fell in love with gigi the first time i saw her in the movies, i'm so glad i finally have her!! blondie's dress was too cute for me to say no to :P
now to hunt for an abbey!!  :abbey:

Customs / HELP!! broken leg joint!
« on: August 27, 2015, 02:49:07 AM »
sorry if this is the wrong place, but i accidentally snapped a leg joint off when i was trying to take it off. the joint piece is still stuck in the thigh piece, is there any way i can take it out and fix it? i could always go the route of just removing the in-tact leg and making a mermaid custom, but i really don't want to do that unless i have to.

i've recently got into almost all of the ever after high dolls! i used to really dislike them and could never consider myself spending money on them, but now theres a ton of them in my wishlist! the original maddie hatter and CA cupid are the ones i want the most, which is also really funny because i used to absolutely hate cupid's lipstick. i have no idea why, but it just rubbed me the wrong way and made me frustrated just by looking at it :haha:
this also happened with astranova, i was never really fond of her which was strange for me because i love space-themed things! today i saw her in person at target, though, and now i really want her!!

these stories and comfort buddies are all so cute! i don't always bring her with me, but whenever i wear a backpack out i almost always bring my first baby seapony, ripple, along with ^.^

Only her front legs are jointed. I'm sure someone will come along with pictures. I don't own her.
ah, that's a shame. thank you for the information, though!

« on: August 26, 2015, 03:12:21 AM »
apologies if this is in the wrong area, but are her hind legs jointed? she's a doll i've been wanting for quite a while now, and i feel like she may be the first actual doll in my collection. i want to make a bed prop for her, but i wanted to know if the back legs have individual joints or if they're just one solid piece so i know how to make the prop. pictures of her joints would also be very appreciated, thank you! ^.^
