Customs / CAM Limb Swap Question
« on: March 27, 2018, 08:14:11 PM »
Hey so I'm attempting to turn a CAM Gorgon Ghoul into one of my characters, who has skeletal limbs from the elbow/knee down and I was wondering if anyone has ever figured out how to make regular MH limbs work with the CAM joints or vice-versa? Shaving down or otherwise modifying the peg attachment?
I'd use the CAM Skeleton ghoul but she's way too rare and expensive to customise so my only option is using Skelita's limbs - anyone ever done this before?  ^^;

If you want to see what I'm aiming to achieve here's the character artwork ;)
If anyone has any ideas how to make her hat I'd love to know as well!

Buy/Sell/Trades / Looking for Project Mc2 Dolls...

(x-posted on the MLP Arena)
Hey, so uh, this might be a stretch but I'm looking for Project Mc2 dolls  :P
Here in Australia we only got the first 1 1/2 waves before retailers decided to no longer stock them, and I'm just drooling over the new masquerade line...  :blush:
If someone in the US could help me find them that would be great, as they're ridiculously overpriced online and the Aussie dollar is pretty weak atm. I'm primarily looking for these two (Ember being my #1 priority, she's gorgeous!) ;

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Although if you can find these guys for cheaper than retail price (like on sale) I'd be interested too;

I don't mind if they're second-hand, as long as they're not in terrible shape and have all their outfit pieces, and I don't mind whether they have their experiments/combs or not, it's just the dolls I'm after, haha.
I don't currently have the funds, but I will soon, as my birthday /christmas is in a month and everyone gives me money as they have no idea how to pick out dolls for me  ^.^

Thanks for reading! :love:

Buy/Sell/Trades / WTB - Gigi Grant's Basic Shoes
« on: December 27, 2016, 07:36:15 PM »
Exactly like the title says, I'm after Gigi's curly-toed shoes from her first release, as on eBay at least, it's cheaper to buy the entire doll but I don't have the room :(
I'm located in Australia :D

Catrine's Art Studio / General MH Art by Crystal-Spooky
« on: October 20, 2016, 06:06:48 AM »
Now, there's nothing I love more than a good design challenge, and as a fan of MH and the Five Nights at Freddy's game series, it seemed only natural to combine the two. The fun parts come about with working the character motifs into their designs and outfits, and my drawing skills have recently improved drastically (due to just under a year of training and practice for my animation degree), so there was nothing holding me back. In celebration of the newest game (Sister Location), I decided to do my take on the star character, Circus Baby... For comparison, her is her official appearance alongside mine;

I'll hopefully do the other characters when I have time. I'm super proud as this is my first time drawing full-body MH-style and at least partially succeeding  ^^;

Buy/Sell/Trades / Wanted - Disney's Star Darlings!
« on: August 17, 2016, 07:38:22 PM »
Hey, so I've admired the Star Darlings dolls ever since the promo images were released, but sadly I live in Australia, and we never got them here :(
Would someone in the US/somewhere where they actually got them be able to help me out? I'm particularly after Sage and Libby (my zodiac sign and my mother's nickname are the reasons behind this choice!)
I'd prefer deboxed but in nice shape... Thanks for looking!  :biggrin:

Catrine's Art Studio / Crystal-Spooky's art and OCs
« on: December 19, 2015, 07:51:00 PM »
I've been drawing since before I could walk but I'm only just learning how to draw and colour digitally so must of my MH-related art is traditional. I like drawing my own OCs and also 'Monsterfying' characters from other franchises so as to fit into the MH aesthetic as I enjoy the design challenge it poses.

First up here are some of my OCs, starting with the one I actually made a website-style bio page for - only for bios to become redundant in the following weeks! Oh well....

Jackie is one of my oldest MH fan-characters, as I first drew her in 2010! She's changed quite a bit from her original design, and I'm very pleased with how she turned out in this incarnation.
Her monster parent, the Pumpkin King, who I kind of created, is inspired by a mixture of various things from legends/other franchises etc. He's the spirit of Halloween, made by a witch from a simple pumpkin who was bought to life by an enchanted candle. By day he's a normal pumpkin, but at night he's a humanoid creature, and the same goes for Jackie (and it annoys her!).

This is Pete Marsh. He's the son of an undead and thus technically a zombie (his appearance is inspired by 'bog bodies' hence the bright red hair and greenish-brown skin) but was adopted by a family of swamp monsters and can't actually speak Zombie as a result. Also pictured is his pet bullfrog, Ribberta :3

This is Hannah Dryad, who is, well, a hamadryad, a kind of dryad who is bonded to a certain tree and is unable to stray far from it, hence why she carries hers in a kind of flowerpot/backpack. She's a shy, laid-back girl who tends to be forgotten in her quietness. Basically, she's not particularly memorable, but she's nice.

Name: Hannah Dryad

Age: 150

Monster Parent: A Hamadryad

Killer Style: Anything that can be made without damaging the environment! I'm also quite a literal 'Flower Child' so my clothing tends to reflect that.

Freaky Flaw: My skin is like wood, so I can't go near any fire monsters, which really bites since it makes traversing the hallways a bit of a terror.

Pet: Woody is my bonded tree. I can't move very far from him or I'll get terrifyingly tired and doze off...

Favorite Activity: Caring for other plants who aren't lucky enough to have their own dryad.

Biggest Pet Peeve: I don't like the destruction of the environment any more than the next ghoul, but I protest peacefully, unlike certain people who are anything but peaceful.

Favorite School Subject: Environmental Studies.

Least Favorite School Subject: Physical Deaducation. It's very hard to run when you're carrying a tree, you know.

Favorite Color: Spring Green

Favorite Food: Tofu Bites

BFF's: I'm at peace with everyone. Well, almost.

Lettuce Fleecington is the daughter of the Vegetable Lamb, a cryptid of sorts, and is in dire need of a redesign, this old picture is rather outdated.

(Predating Crystal Winter as the Daughter of The Snow Queen) Aurora Frost is the daughter of the Snow Queen, and previously attended Ever After High (you can tell by the way she dresses). Unfortunately, her monster traits began to emerge (genetic throwback from her mother) and Aurora was no longer allowed to attend the school. One of her younger sisters then had to take up the mantle of the future Snow Queen, leaving Aurora wondering what to do with her life, now that her destiny wasn't set out before her.

Saphira Lakely is the daughter of a Lake Monster and I'm in the midst of coming up with her personality so she's just a pretty face at the moment. Those things are her gills are water-supplying 'headphones' that work similar to Gil's helmet.

Teethsa Fangvel is a monsterfied version of myself (complete with monsterfied name!) and is the daughter of a Tooth Fairy, as I'm somewhat of a magpie and collect anything shiny I see on the ground. Her pet, Glitter, is inspired by my own pet cat of the same name <3

And now for some monsterfied characters from other places - first off here are some Flutter Ponies (G1 My Little Pony for those who don't know of them).

Tropical Breeze!


Cloud Puff!

And Yum Yum!

Next up are a bunch of monsterfied animatronics, some real and some fictional. I love animatronics made for entertainment purposes, and wish I could own one, but my BF is completely terrified of them and wouldn't even let one in the house.

A monsterfied version of the cast of the first Five Nights at Freddy's game! I loved coming up with the designs and the challenge of having so little to work with in terms of 'character' and appearance from the originals.

And here's the cast of the second game - well, most of it... I also feel like re-doing Mangle at some point..

Plus a digital Shadow Bonnie...

And here are my favourite real-world animatronics, The Rock-afire Explosion (! This was so fun to do and I wanna make them into custom dolls so badly!

Astranova has shaped up to be my favourite MH character of all time, but here in Brisbane I've only seen the lilac version at Toys R Us and apparently they're not selling them elsewhere :/
I'm looking for the dark indigo version with or without her playset, but preferably without as that'll likely increase the cost of shipping. Please help me obtain this gorgeous ghoul!

Introductions! / Hi!

Hello, my name is Tessa and I'm an Australian MH collector! I'm also on the MLP arena, but I'm fairly new there too despite stalking it for years....
I've collected MH since the first wave reached Australia, and I consider myself extremely lucky to own some of the rarer wave one dolls (by chance the ones that I chose turned out to be hard to find later on). As I'm in Australia, we often get stuff much later than in the US, and sometimes it just doesn't show up at all :(
On the flipside, we also get stuff that's long since sold out in other countries, mostly excess stock with minor flaws but I don't particularly mind :3
I like to generally own one doll of each character unless it's my favourite character - although until this year I didn't have one. When the first photos of Astranova were released I instantly fell in love with her :3
Aside from Monster High I also collect many other kinds of fashion dolls, ponies, and toys, with my collection currently at around 70+...
