Spectra Vondergeist doesn’t seem like the most popular Monster High doll to me, instead of her older releases being sold out, they’re available cheaper than when they were new. Released in June 2013, Ghouls Night Out Spectra Vondergeist is available for $14 on Amazon, though if you wait I bought mine (still in the package) for $8 on eBay. I love Spectra’s clear hands/feet, oddly high cheekbones, purple hair (my favorite color), and most importantly of all, purple sclera. Spectra is the only Monster High doll with a non-white white of the eye and I feel like this, along with her gradient limbs, makes her especially unique. Below I’ll be sharing the photos I took of my re-styled Ghouls Night Out Spectra, reviewing the stock doll, and telling you how to re-style your doll the same way if you so choose. One of my readers suggested that I post these restyles, so thank you for the idea!
Spectra Vondergeist – Ghouls Night Out Series
My GNO Spectra looks a lot different from the stock image above, but the only new addition is a Walking Dead print skirt from Lovely Woods on Etsy. The skirt took a long time to arrive, but it wasn’t expensive, and it’s very well made. I removed the accessories from Spectra that I thought were too much, added the skirt over her dress, and she was done. I also boil straightened her hair; out of the box her hair was a poofy mess, but boil straightening went a long way toward fixing that (and ruining it, read on). Without so much jewelry weighing her down, GNO Spectra is a much prettier doll. On to the review:
Zombuki Pullip Sierra – Unicorn Series
It’s time for another Zombuki Thursday post! This week’s post features new photos of an older Zombuki custom Pullip, Sierra, one of the Unicorn Twins. I finished Sierra a long time ago, but never took photos of her until recently. Over the summer, Sierra and her sister Bianca went home to a dear friend and Zombuki doll uber-collector, so I’m very happy because they are in good hands.
Zombuki Pullip Sierra – Unicorn Series
Sierra’s wig and horn are both from Leeke World, her dress is BHC, and her eye are Cool Cat flat clear chips that I added copious amounts of glitter to. I hope you enjoyed her photos, I am planning on making another unicorn girl soon and I can’t wait.
Strawberry Kokeshi Doll Series
I’m very happy to announce that my Strawberry Kokeshi series is up at Shana Logic! These kokeshi were a special request from Shana and I’m so proud of how they turned out. They took a very long time for me to embellish because they are crammed full of love. I wanted each one to be as perfect as possible, but still unique. Their strawberry bows are my favorite detail, and I bought them specifically to make these girls. They also have vintage beads and Swarovski crystal embellishments. I hope you like them! If you adopt one I would love for you to leave a comment and say hi.
Update: These are no longer available. Thank you to everyone who took one home.
Zombuki #73 the Sea Witch
Zombuki #73 is here! She is the Sea Witch, a character from Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid in Zombuki doll form. The Sea Witch is a fascinating character, she has no name in the original story and very little description except that she lives in a house made of human bones and lets a toad eat from her mouth. The first thing she says in the story is: “I know what you want, … it is very stupid of you, but you shall have your way, and it will bring you to sorrow, my pretty princess.” I love this original character because, unlike Disney’s Ursula, the Sea Witch tries to talk the little mermaid out of the deal.
One of the only physical descriptions of the Sea Witch is that she has black blood, so I wanted her character to be both beautiful and very dark. I gave her glitter eyes that are sparkling like ocean water and teal lips.
