My sister's Dead Tired Abbey came with two left slippers.  When we contacted Mattel about it, they just sent an entire new one since they did not have slippers laying around to send.  But that was a very long time ago.

Did they ever actually say the Gaga set was going to be released or was it just that photo? I always assumed it was just a one-off :O

I want to say I recall Mattel saying they were one-off dolls, but I'm not 100% sure.  I remember there being a lot of buzz at the time for Gaga accompanied by a line of little monster ghouls, but then Mattel stepped in and denied they were being made.

I always wanted Drama Class Draculaura, and have no idea why she was never made. 

Then there's the ones that appeared in the specials or cartoons that were never made.  Roller Maze Cleo was a big want for me, but then I was a big Cleo collector.

I took a Dead Tired Ghoulia, put her in Scaris Draculaura's black shoes, Picture Day Spectra's black skirt, and the red top from Operetta's deluxe fashion pack.  It looked pretty good to me.

I had also seen Venus in I Heart Fashion Scarah's pink and white dress and white boots with New Scaremester Catty's pink tights.  It was adorable, but I was never able to recreate it myself, never got the tights.

Those are about the only two I did.  I wasn't really a redresser or picture taking fan, but the Ghoulia's ponytail had fallen and her hair was in gorgeous waves, and the Venus I just stumbled across in a lot on eBay and wanted for myself.

With Ghoulia, I looked more for plain-ish pieces that looked good together, and the red top really looked great on her, especially paired with red glasses.

Went to Walmart yesterday, my sister came back with a Pokemon wastebasket for $1.50, and we also happened to stumble across a lap table in the craft section.  It's flimsy, it was six bucks, but it'll definitely help her when she's drawing.

Don't want this to wind up locked, so I'm giving it a nudge and leaving a note to myself that if I get near Valentine and Whisp, I might need to snap some pictures of them.  ^^;

Our Walmart had the Quidditch Harry and Draco dolls.  Ron and Dumbledore were $5 on clearance.  Hairdorables were $6 on clearance.  The budget Shoppies were also $5.  Also saw the Snapstars dolls and a few fashion packs.

I've been keeping an eye on the announcements, not really excited or expecting much, but darn it, Patrick with the board nailed to his head is pretty cute!

Skull Shores Gil and a Dance Class Lagoona have sold.  Also back on our regular Saturday post office schedule.

The castle was released, but the blind boxes were not.  Neither was wave 5 of the Mega Bloks.  I'm not even sure of the second set of Halloween minis were available.

My sister got me the Black Butler Book of Atlantic DVD and the first two volumes of the Castlevania manga.  Other than that, just money and candy.

Updated our pictures again, did not realize how many of mine were facing away when I took the picture.  ^^;

I really hate going to the post office this time of year, but I will be glad to either hold dolls until the new year or brave the post office if anyone is interested in buying now.

Placed an Amiami order for some new Fire Emblem merchandise, and for an old badge I had missed that came back in stock.

Ghostly tea party Ari hair color change?

Looking at them, there's quite a few little changes.  Clawdeen is closest to the first image, though her shoes have changed, her skirt appears lighter and more purple, and I think her teapot might have, too. 

Ari's hair somehow managed to get even worse.  It looks like sad cotton candy.  Her fan is lighter and her little tray is now all one solid color.  Her dress also looks to have a more simple pattern.   She also appears to have lost her purse but might have gained a headpiece, going off the blue looking thing in that mess of pink hair.

Lagoona's skirt has been shortened and lost most of its patterned looked.  Her top also looks different, more lighter.  Her hair piece has gotten smaller, and her ponytail looks lighter and more curled. 

This is honestly a big headscratcher to me.  I didn't think they would be released at all, but here we have an image with very noticeable tweaking to it.  Will they drop in at least on Amazon like the last few EAH?

Monster Discussion / Re: Monster High in Walmart Black Friday Ad

Our Walmart never got the Comic Book dolls, but I have zero interest in them.   Surprised, but also not, by the little siblings.  They didn't sell so well, so there must have been a surplus to send back, I suppose.

I don't know why but I was hoping for something a little better. Like the later articulated slim box lines at least. They could have sent the Ballet dolls or the Garden Ghouls or even Electrified.

Honestly even Hasbro didn't have much for their offering. Just a few of the first series of basic princesses and some assorted Elena, Elsa, and Rapunzel the Series dolls.

The high points this year were more the Shoppie set, the Fingerlings set, and the Hatchimal. All those were at least exclusives that were never available anywhere else.

I kind of expected the Comic Book lines, or Emoji Ghouls or something like that.  I had very little hope for it, but Ballet could have been cool.  I only saw them once at Target. 

It looks like toys just aren't having a good year in general.  I was browsing the Black Friday ads everywhere, and Target only had eight pages of toys in all, whereas there were 14 pages of video games. 

That being said, even video games don't seem to be getting much space/sales this year.  A lot of sites had new games at full price mixed into the Black Friday sales.

I think Black Friday in general is scaling back. I don't know if it's because of the trade war or that more people are shopping online but there were less deals this year. Target actually closed and reopened instead of being open straight through the 2 days like they usually do.

It does feel that way, doesn't it?  Black Friday just wasn't a huge thing this year.  We went to Walmart this morning hoping to pick up a game, but they were putting most things up.  The games had been moved to the bottom of the cases in the electronics section.  The only things still out were a few household goods, pajama sets, arts and crafts sets, dvds, and a few toys.
