Title: Hello!!
Post by: xxnickiyxx on April 05, 2015, 07:34:01 AM
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!

Welcome, we're happy to have you here with us!

It's great that you are trying to make your own doll clothes. There are a couple of talented seamstresses here who I'm sure would be happy to help you out if you need it. Someone also sells doll clothing patterns, they're stunning!

Hope to see you around!

Welcome! I think we have some other members from the Netherlands, but at the moment I'm drawing a blank! You can see if on their posts though they should have "Location" below their "Join Date".

Only 4 MH dolls?! Mind you, I'm a college student nowhere near MH selling stores with no transportation to speak of, so I always have to order online, but I imagine shipping is bad for you too for most MH stuff :(

I hope you enjoy the forum though and can find lots of dolls you like! I applaud your starting making doll clothes. I haven't worked up the courage yet haha

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!

Welcome to the MHArena! The EAH line has completely captivated me as well so I know how you feel! You come from an awesome part of the world - lived in Amsterdam myself for 18 months or so - I adore it!

Have fun on the forums and I hope you share that custom clothing with us eventually :)

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
