Happy Tuesday everyone! I thought it would be fun to post a Monster High dollhouse update since I’ve been collecting them like crazy since my Mouscedes purchase three weeks ago. One of my favorite parts of starting a new hobby is that initial stage where you catch up on your collection. Above you can see a Create a Monster witch whose wig I rerooted! I started the reroot years ago and just finished it about two weeks ago. It was so much work I don’t think I’ll be doing it again anytime soon, but I’m really happy with the results. She’s dressed in some old Pullip/Dal stock and is holding Cornice’s plush Felicia doll.
I also picked up with Monster Exchange Draculaura doll this week. I bought this and the Lagoona one off of Amazon because it was a bit cheaper, but I’m realizing that this is a bad idea since (as and MH collector can tell you) a lot of the dolls have eye wonk. My Lagoona has two totally different shaped eyes so right now she’s in the box while I figure out what to do with her. It looks like Monster High dolls, like Lalaloopsy, really need to be bought in person. A struggle due to all the Target exclusives and the fact that no Target around here has ever stocked anything well.
Next the absolute coolest Monster High release yet: Iris Clops! She was originally a SDCC exclusive in 2014 (which I just bought off ebay because I’m crazy) and they just came out with this “I Heart Fashion” edition. I had been going to local Toys R Us once a week to pick her up and I finally got one! I’m very excited. I love eyeballs so this is probably my new favorite Monster High girl (sorry Rochelle!). I completely love her olive hair too.
So here we have it! The collection as of this weekend. They’re spilling out of their allocated doll cubes on my Ikea bookshelf so I’m reorganizing things again to make room for them. Addiction!
