M-O-N-S-T-E-R! Monsters, monsters yes we are!

The first meeting of monsters and fairies (everyone in stock outfits)
That's right, I bought some Monster High dolls! After two weeks of thinking about it, I went ahead and got two girls on sale.I got Gigi Grant from the 13 Wishes series and the Scaris version of Frankie Stein.

Mix and match time
Surprisingly, the MH girls can wear the Disney Fairy and Winx clothes. Frankie is wearing Bratz Boyz (?) sunglasses, a Bratz (?) jacket and Rosetta's dress. Gigi is wearing Periwinkle's jacket, my 11cm Obitsu's dress as a shirt and the leggings from my Winx Bloom.

So far I'm very impressed with them and I'm looking forward to repainting Frankie.

My Craziest Project to Date

I mentioned way back in my first post that I would show what I've done so far on my most ambitious doll project. Basically, I'm blushing a full mini BJD (43cm tall or so) a cool brown using pastels, and reshaping the breasts to be flatter on top, fuller on the bottom and overall smaller. The doll I'm using is a Bobobie Pixie in normal skin.

First Overpaint Ever

So for once I was able to keep my hands steady with a fine point brush. I took the opportunity to do my first overpaint. I haven't had a chance to do a full repaint yet since it turns out I don't have any yellow paint so I can't do Fire's face yet. Behold, Periwinkle with new eyebrows, eyes and no gel in her hair!

Disappointment and Inspiration

The Disney Fairies, as much as I've come to love them, were not the fashion dolls that I was planning on buying to break into fashion dolls. No, the doll I planned to get when I walked into Toys R Us that day was the TRU exclusive Winx Bloom with Scooter. Well after I couldn't find her in stores, which wasn't a surprise as she was on clearance for roughly 50% off, I ordered her from I also bought the Barbie Life In the Dreamhouse vanity playset so I qualified for free shipping.

I've been putting off writing about this doll since I got her because, well, she's not what I was expecting. I've very glad that I ended up getting my two Disney girls, because they are so much nicer than the Winx girl, even though the two products were both made by Jakks Pacific.

Review: Disney Fairies Periwinkle and Rosetta Part 2

Time for part 2 of my first review! This go around I'm focussing on Pirate Fairy Periwinkle. I apologise that a number of the photos are dark and/or grainy. I'm still learning where the best spots are for light in the house and such.

So if anyone was wondering, the dresses from the Disney girls I reviewed do fit 11cm Obitsus.

Review: Disney Fairies Periwinkle and Rosetta Part 1

Toys R Us had a 30% off Disney sale, so I picked up Pirate Fairy Periwinkle and Celebrate Pixie Party Rosetta. I love the faces and smiles of these girls, so when I saw that there are jointed versions, I bit the bullet and bought my first fashion dolls. What better opportunity could there be to write my first review?

"Hi there!"
