Alrighty, I hope that no one minds me posting some of my other dolls as well as my MH dolls in this post? I don't want to clutter up the boards.
Okay, so last week I was really raggy and just in a general bad mood. My husband went to the store to buy some diapers and a few other groceries and came back with this!
She's the Monster High Gloom Beach
Frankie. I love the little details on her and the accessories. Lightning bolt hair clip, jumper cable handles on her handbag, lightning aroung her sunglasses frame, and her platforms are cut to resemble lightning bolts(they also have thick straps reminiscent of the straps used in the original Frankenstein's Monster movie to hold the monster to the table). Shoes!
A few days later we went to the store and I picked up Draculaura, Frankie(original) and Lagoona(I got Cleo & Deuce for Xmas from Hubz, Ghoulia and Clawdeen will be here next week so more pix then!).The current crew.Frankie vs. Frankie
I'm thinking of calling the one on the right(bathing suit) Hedwig.
Hedwig has already taken Cleo's shoes since they look like the wrappings on the Bride.
Her new outfit will be based on that look:Swap
I almost completely passed up getting Lagoona. I looked at her at the store and almost got her, but put her back and she was the last one. Later on my husband had to get back out to the store for something so I begged him to look and see if they still had her. They did so he brought her home. There's something very enchanting about Lagoona that I can't quite put my finger on. I think that if I repainted her with brown eyes and gave her brown hair she'd look just like my daughter.
Lilith liked my dolls so much that the next day we picked her up a regular Frankie and the last Dawn of the Dance
Clawdeen. I stole the little 'icoffin' phone. Lilith doesn't care about it and I really didn't want to see it get messed up.
Some of the crew from Xmas:Ebz
(Cy Girl ~ Ebony). I love her silvery hair, but will probably completely reroot and paint her. They gave her weird, stupid looking bangs that I can't stand, plus her hair's a tad short for my taste.Ebz 2Zombie Slayer 1Zombie Slayer 2Zombie Slayer 3
, as you can see she's still a work in progress. I had to lengthen her staff because it looked a bit short, then Lilith got hold of it and broke it. Luckily I was able to get some gorilla glue and still had some spare pieces that I had previously cut off of the staff. Always save parts! You never know when they will come in handy!
My current absolute favourite doll is my Xena! She does NOT come with the body that I have her on. My Xena is a 'hybrid' of the Evil Xena
head on the Triad Toys Large Bust Alpha
body. I tried to buy the small busted one, but one of the guys on another forum beat me to it, he even apologized for snapping it up first(I told him first come first served, no hard feelings). Anyway, I modded the bust so that it was more true-to-life like Lucy Lawless.*Warning! Nekkid Doll Boobz!*

The other large busted body is going to my Maureen O'Hara doll(when the head arrives). No, I'll not be reducing that one. Based on the Da Vinci height measurements I need to add about an inch to Xena's height and armspan, so I'll be modifying her legs & arms in the following months. I keep meaning to update my blog, but this will do for now. ^_^
I haven't done any repainting yet. I'm waiting on my new art supplies to arrive. Geez, tax season is better than Xmas, sometimes.
