Monster Discussion / Re: How many of each character do you have?
« on: October 05, 2018, 10:33:44 PM »
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Lhia, great collection! In the instances where you've swapped parts, do you have a written record or just in your head?

Thanks! :D

I keep a spreadsheet of all my dolls, clothes, and accessories, including the custom and WIP ones! :)
Hence my need to inventory. I got a couple of bait lots a while back that I haven't updated in that sheet. They're just in a box and set aside because I got busy, and the weather wasn't MSC-spraying friendly the last few months.

My Tumblr also has a list of which dolls are swapped with which head, including the Novi hybrids. They're tagged in the cases of the dolls that I've taken photos of, too!

42
What overwhelms me is mostly the idea of cleaning them.
I have now idea how they manage to collect so much dust and it's a pain to see them all dirty while on display.
But if I take them all down for a cleaning session, it would be like the activity for the weekend and I get tired just planning it. ^^;

My to-do list today includes doing just one row of the Billy shelves my dolls are on. So the bottom most shelf of each case. Then I'll do the next shelf another day (maybe not tomorrow, we'll see how I go). I'm going to go through a lot of canned air over the next few days. @_@

I really need to do a full inventory of dolls now that the weather is improving enough for me to get back to using MSC. I've bought quite a few bait dolls that aren't sorted yet, so this list is only counting dolls that are in their stock/intact, fully customised and finished, prepped for customising, or already WIP to become custom. I'm also not counting hybrids with Novi Stars, because the MH heads from those hybrids are rattling around in a box somewhere. <_<;;

Draculaura's Darkroom / Re: The random doll/toy photography thread
« on: October 05, 2018, 07:36:08 PM »
Meanwhile, my Nendo Army is exploding.  ^^;

I'm looking forward to the Cu-Poches, though! They're so adorable! I wish that the new jointed Nendo body was as cute, but it's a bit weirdly proportioned, I think. The Cu-Poche x Nendoroid hybrids are just too cute, though.


XD

I completely agree.  Something about those little Nendo dolls just doesn't look right.  Which is a shame.  But Nendo/Cu-Poche hybrids are just too perfect!
I have a Cu-Poche Extra navy suit body on back-order through AmiAmi.  I plan on customizing the body a bit and making a Cu-Poche Kirito.  I've never back-ordered anything through them before though.  I sure hope it doesn't take too long to come back into stock. :(

I've never back-ordered through them, either. I'm not sure how it works, exactly. Hopefully, it'll get restocked and sent your way soon! If it doesn't outright say sold out, that should be possible, right?

Rose of Versailles x Uniqlo shirts! The collaboration came to Australia while I wasn't paying attention, so some styles were already sold out, but I got my hands on my favourites!

Also picked up some crystal suncatchers to use as photoshoot props and to turn into Ginzuisho pendants at the new dollar store nearby.

Here's a little spam from my most recent shoots.

First up is my Nendoroid/Cu-poche hybrid.  I put Nendo Victor Nikiforov's head on a Cu-poche Extra Suit Body (Gray).  I love him so much like this. :love:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I need you to know, that I just pre-ordered two Cu-poche figures, and it's all your fault. XD

:haha:

Who'd you get?

Saber Alter from Fate/Grand Order and Saber from Fate/EXTRA Last Encore. They also made a regular Saber from Fate/Stay Night that's long gone, and a King Saber from Fate/Grand Order that one of my local shops has, that I might have to go pick up.

FATE FATE FAAAAAAATE It's taking over my life in all seriousness. I'm thinking of buying the little devil cat costume and blank body for Saber Alter to wear. lol


LOL  I kind of thought that those were the two that you'd gone for. :biggrin:
They are insanely gorgeous!  Especially Saber Alter. <3


I've been on figural photography hiatus due to my parent's taking turns borrowing my camera and keeping it for weeks on end. :annoyed:  Right now dad has it and I have no idea when he plans on returning it. -_-
So I finally got desperate and took a shot on my old worthless cellphone the other day. LOL  I dressed it up quite a bit in PS to try and hide the grit and grain. :P

I bought a fun new fountain pen last week, a TWSBI Eco-T in transparent blue, with a 1.1mm stub nib. I also got some new ink to put in it, Robert Oster Fire & Ice (they're an Australian ink brand, inspired by the Australian landscape).

Also just paid for my September AmiAmi order! It's a couple of days late due to one of the items being delayed, and then the invoice not being sent until after the weekend was over, but I'm excited. So much great stuff this month, like Astolfo's Nendoroid, some new Nendoroid room playsets (the school one came back! Ee!), My Jeanne d'Arc Alter and Fuu Hououji Figmas, and even a Fate/Grand Order x Sanrio Cu Chulainn fountain pen! PUMPED. UP.

NEW CLOTHES! I've been putting off buying anything other than t-shirts because I'm trying to lose weight, but I've been moping about not having "nice" things to wear to dinners with friends. So yesterday, I went shopping. It turns out there was a big sale on for this weekend, so I bought a cute cat-sushi printed dress on clearance, a super vavavoom striped romper, and a comfy, granny knit poncho thing.

Monster Discussion / Re: Do you ever feel... overwhelmed by your collection?
« on: September 20, 2018, 01:24:58 AM »
I know I'm rezzing a semi-dead thread, but this happened to me last night and I had a bit of a panic. I think I was just tired and stressed from some other things going on, but I went to bed last night (my dolls are on display on shelves in the bedroom) and just stared at them before falling asleep. I kept thinking about how we have books in boxes, and how many would fit on those shelves if I didn't have the dolls.

And then my brain started calculating whether it would even be worth selling the dolls in the current market, and panicking over that...

... but then I woke up this morning and the feeling was gone. I think I may need to clean up the shelves and change the layout of the dolls more often, to keep things fresh and interesting, maybe? Or else migrate some of the dolls into a different room so I'm not staring at them before sleeping after a hard day.

Off Topic / Re: Things you wish they would make in doll scale
« on: September 20, 2018, 01:20:24 AM »
I feel like commercial dolls with dreadlocks would be pretty difficult to police in terms of QC. I think you'd get a nightmare of dolls that had one giant mass versus the desired result. In terms of art dolls, I've seen a few that simulated it with different types of yarn or kanekalon, and the result was nice!


Personally, I'd like to see more dolls with articulated ankles and feet, or even interchangeable hands and feet, like action figures have.

In terms of accessories/items to go with dolls, I can't think of anything they don't make that I can easily find somewhere. Maybe more furniture types/styles? I see the same couches and chairs over and over again in shops online. It'd be nice to see a wider variety in a scale that would suit MH (whereas I can easily find smaller for action figures via doll house and scale miniature sites; my Sylvanian Families and Re-Ment Petite Sample collections are groooowing).

Monster Discussion / Re: Which dolls seemed rare?
« on: September 07, 2018, 07:51:53 AM »
Australia was weird, because rarity was kind of the norm? And then random places would have heaps of dolls, or dolls that I didn't know had come to Australia. I know that I asked for people abroad to get me dolls that didn't make it here, sometimes in exchange for dolls we got much later.

I think the strangest thing was the fact that we got Haunted Rochelle and Spectra before everywhere else. I know I shipped a couple of Spectras out to people Stateside, because she took so long to come out there (and then had a slightly different face-up).

Ever After High Discussion / Re: It's official :cry:
« on: September 04, 2018, 07:17:01 AM »
I figured EAH was done a long time ago.  IMO the reboot killed it just like it did MH.  I know they were trying to boost sales, but it had the opposite effect. 

MH is "available at retailers nationwide"? 
In what nation?  Canada perhaps?  Australia?

Stop lying, Mattel and just tell your fans the truth.
These little white lies will catch up to you one day...

Just speaking for my area...

I haven't seen MH or EAH at any store other than the Reject Shop here in months. And they only have a handful of the Deluxe Electrified dolls left. The basics have been gone a while now.

I've been cautiously optimistic since the project was announced. I'm still reserving judgement (good or bad) until it's out and ready to watch. It's nice that they're moving away from the 80s designs, in my opinion. I know that they used those designs for ease of animation and toy creation, but animation has moved well past those kinds of tricks.

We're losing ours in Australia. They were going to stay open, but it looks like shareholders don't have confidence in the brand name, and decided to liquidate. I picked up some discounted Sylvanian Family toys to use as props in photos for 10% off, but haven't gone back to check on the new round of reductions, yet. Our local was pretty bare bones to begin with, and it's starting to empty out already.

I expect that remnants will end up at the Reject Shop like usual, so I'll check there later. They had Electrified Deluxe dolls recently, when no one else carried Twyla or Howleen at all.

Just paid for my June AmiAmi order, which got delayed by an item that had to be pulled at the last minute. It's full of goodies, including Figmas of Utena and Cu Chulainn, the 4 Inch Nel figure of Fate/Apocrypha's Jack the Ripper, a static 1/7 statue of Astolfo from the same, Tohsaka Rin's Nendoroid release, a MADAO windbreaker for my partner, and various Heaven's Feel goodies, including bag straps for my Medusa/Rider bag.

The new GST malarkey really hurt, though. 5200yen in GST fees because they charge it on top of the total PLUS shipping. With current exchange rate, that's nearly 70AUD. ._.

I think I'm going to have to cut back on my AmiAmi buys from now on.


Ooo, that sounds like a great haul!
But I'm so sorry to hear about how much the GST tax is going to end up costing you. :(  I saw that announcement on AmiAmi a couple of days ago and immediately thought of you.  That really sucks.

I knew it was coming. My greatest fear was that AmiAmi would do what Amazon decided to do: stop shipping to Australia all together. Which sucks. But there are ways around it, I guess.
