So, I love all the new dolls coming out! I bought some new ones (finally!) thanks to the new job and I will post reviews soon but today, in honor of the new Ghouls Rule DVD I'd like to post pictures of the makeup I did inspired by Draculaura's doll!!
This last one is just of me playing around being "Hipster Draculaura!" So, what do you think??
HI!! I'm so excited! My house is finally mostly unpacked! Between moving, starting a new job and bug invasions (don't worry, we called a pest control guy and I haven't seen a bug inside since!) I've been really busy! I found time the other day to take some pictures of Spectra, Lala and Clawd, and my B&W SS Frankie! SO.... My Spectra pictures have been posted on DeviantArt.com for a few days now. Here are the links... Color Me Purple (my personal favorite of the group), Dancing Spectra, Neon Spectra, and Spectra the Ballet Student. I was really pleased with the outfit I put together for Spectra and I thought it looked like a ballet costume. I posted a picture of Lala today that is really cute too! Chatting It's part of a group of shots I did in her "house". I have some of her and Clawd hanging out in her bedroom but I'm not done tweaking them yet.
Here are my SS Frankie dolls!
I decided to keep the one with the best hair in the box!
As you can see the one in the box has really sleek hair. The loose ones hair was kinda smooshed or something in the box and when I took her out I was able to fluff it and it looks way better now!
I tried to pose her like her picture at the bottom of the box! This was the closest I could get, what do you think?
Her shoes are way cute! The MH designers totally blow me away with all the details they are able to get onto such a simple doll! I can't wait to see the SS Clawdeen and SS Cleo that I have heard rumors about! They are supposed to come out in November-December in a box set like the Gloom Beach dolls!
So it's been forever since I posted. I've been really busy. I moved across town (moving sucks!) and I got a "real" job for the first time in 9 years. Hey, I need money to keep up with my MH addiction! Anyway, the most exciting thing that has happened is that I won a MH contest on Twitter!! Hooray!! I never win anything so I was super surprised and excited! In fact, the only reason I joined Twitter was for MH contests, so it was amazing that the first one I ever entered in, I won! What did I win, you ask?
My own black and white Skull Shores Frankie!
So, now I have 2 Frankies, one to open and one to KIB!
I'm still trying to decide which one to open and which one to KIB, so for now they are both still in box and I'll post with pictures when I open one. Luckily these aren't my only new additions...
I also have Skull Shores Lagoona and Draculaura! Did you see Skull Shores? My girls and I thought it was super cute! So here are some close-ups of Lagoona first!
I love her makeup! It's so vibrant!
Her shoes are cute but kinda plain. They aren't as clever as Ghoulia's.
I think it's supposed to be a tentacle.
Wanna sip? Her Tiki drink is super cute and angry =)
Over all I like this Lagoona, except I wish her top was more like the one on the box design. That one looked more like 2 separate pieces, which is always better since MH clothes are hard to find!
On to Draculaura!
I really like that she has a sailor suit on! Her hibiscus drink is really cute but I wish it was a little scarier!
Her shoes are very sweet and Lagoona has already asked to borrow them!
Lagoona may borrow this bracelet and those earrings too!
Overall, I am slightly disappointed with this Draculaura. Her hair was poorly executed, her bangs don't stay in their V and the wisps should be curled and be closer to her ears instead of on top of her head! Also the concept for her outfit is cute but is more appropriate for Lagoona than Draculaura. The Lolli-Goth styles she is usually in suit her more!
Disneyland was uhhh-mazing!! We had a super fun time and since then I have been busy packing because we are moving across town! I'm super excited to be out of apartments and I'm hoping this will be our last move for awhile! Anyway, I wanted to get in one last photo shoot before I pack up my "studio", LMAO! So here it is! My super secret idea!
Lagoona Blue as a Mermaid! See it here @ DeviantArt.com link
Here she is taking a bath with Neptuna! See it here @ DeviantArt.com link
I was so inspired by a few fellow deviants that I HAD to do my own version! Lagoona is my second favorite MH character so, quite a bit of my favorite art on DeviantArt.com features Lagoona and three of them feature Lagoona drawn as a mermaid. I decided that I needed a Lagoona Mermaid doll, et voila!
I'm so excited! We're going to Disneyland March 23- March 25! That's right, this weekend! This is my baby girls first trip and I can't wait to post pictures of us with the Princesses, the Fairies, and of course, Mickey and Minnie!
Also, I just got the Gimp software and I am working on some really cool pictures but I am moving April 1st and am still looking for a place to live, so It might take me a little while to get them posted. I'm still gathering supplies and I might have to pack up my "photo studio" before I'm able to take the next few shots. I'm also learning how to sew, so (hee hee) I will be making my own MH doll fashions! I'm really proud of the t-shirt modifications I did for our Disney trip too! I have to thank You Tube and all the cool people that post tutorials!!
