Off Topic / Pet peeves...
« on: July 04, 2014, 09:23:47 AM »
One of my biggest pet peeves is when younger people, or people my age, call me "Hun","Honey,""Sweetie","Doll","Kid", etc.
I have a new coworker who is 4 years my junior, she's 18 and I'm 22. I really do like this girl, hard working, smart...BUT, she is always calling me one of those stupid patronizing pet names. She even does it to my 54 year old boss *eye twitch*
I know they aren't trying to be rude, I guess it's supposed to be a southern thing, but it just annoys me.
For whatever reason though, I like it when older people do it. Especially old ladies. It isn't disrespectful when they do it for whatever reason, my brain rationalizes.

I don't mean to offend anyone if they do this. I know you mean no harm. This is meant as a fun topic, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
So, what is your biggest pet peeves?

Went to Target this morning and saw that Ashlyn and Hunter 2pk went back on sale as it does lately, but I scanned Holly & Poppy and they also have the sale price! :)
Just in case you were waiting for a sale price on them, it happened so soon!

Monster Discussion / MH secondary market?
« on: April 30, 2014, 06:34:05 PM »
Sorry if this is in the wrong section/been posted about before/possibly too personal to talk about money (?)

Have you ever bought a doll loose on the secondary market? If so, what is the most you've ever paid?

The most I've paid for a loose doll with all accessories was $25 before ship for a sig Ghoulia, but I figured that was practically retail so I reconciled it in my mind.
That was until yesterday, when I mindlessly bid on a Cleo/Duece first wave set, loose, with all accessories on Ebay. Welp, I won shortly after didn't think I'd actually win it!) and paid *with shipping*....
Eep! That's crazy! Or is it? :shrug: :wonder:

Customs / Question about face up artists...
« on: March 10, 2014, 09:36:22 PM »
Ok, so recently I bought a loose Nefera off of another forum. I was so excited, until I got her. She's..not as described or pictured. Her leg is broken and the seller used a Sharpie to draw on thick eye liner. It's really bad. So I thought That I would try to make the best of it. How can I find an artist who would be willing to remove her eyes and redo them in a similar fashion (of course it wouldn't be exact, but if it still looks like Nefera, we're good.) How much is this sort of work usually?
Also, the knee is snapped at that peg in the leg, if that makes sense. Anyone have experience with fixing that? Thanks!

Introductions! / Hey ghouls! :D

Hey ghouls!
I'm 22, in college, married to a loving and patient (!!) man, and I work at crappy job lol. But, I have a beautiful Chihuahua/Yorkie mix named Gerald (nickname is Smooty:)).
I've always loved fashion dolls. I had Barbies and My Scenes, as well as the first wave of Winx dolls. My younger cousin and I used to play Xmen with them lol. I stopped playing dolls when when I was 14 because my older cousin made me feel embarrassed about it :/
My interest in Monster High started when they first came out in 2010. I first saw them at Walmart and seriously considered buying a Lagoona but I felt like I was way too old to be buying dolls. Like most people have said, I would have LOVED these dolls when I was a kid! Over the years I've kept up with the lines, and last fall I decided that it's not weird to have a few dolls.
My first MH was Skelita. Since then my collection has grown to 18 dolls. I only get one character, and that is only if I want that character.
My favorite doll is basic Rochelle, but Viperine is coming at a close second!
I have found that forums are the best place to buy MH! I have recently bought wave 1 Ghoulia and Nefera from another MH forum, but I'm planning to make this forum my home because the people here seem so nice and friendly! That is very unique!
Anyways, I've rambled enough. (I don't know anyone irl who loves MH so Im just so excited about it! Lol)
Hope to make some ghoulfriends soon!
PS. I recently saw my younger cousin whom I used to play dolls with and found out she is obsessed with ABJDs! Lol!! Once a doll lover, always a doll lover! <3
