Monster High obsessed

I think I've developed a new obsession. I have become totally enamoured of these quirky Monster High dolls. Normally one who tends to focus my collection towards realism in my dolls, for some reason these totally anime, very out of the norm, various colored Monster High dolls appeal to me greatly.

Mabye it's because they photograph so well. Part of it might be the thrill of the hunt. After collecting mainly Iplehouse BJDs for the past year or two, it's nice to be able to go to the local Walmart or Toys R Us and pick up a relatively inexpensive doll fix.

Whatever it is...............they have me totally hooked for the moment at least. I'm almost embarrassed to say how many I've picked up over the course of the past week.

Monster High

Now for something totally different. I had seen some of the buzz about these dolls on the net, but hadn't really seen them in person, so thought myself immune, LOL!

I happened to be out and about yesterday and happened across these girls and fell in love with them. I ended up bringing them home and spent last night playing and looking up more info about them on the web. I'm afraid there will be more where these came from.

I think Cleo is my favorite, but I really like the "Dead Sleep" version of Ghoulia shown here too. I also picked up a few more and I'll be deboxing and sharing a few more soon. They are just the ticked for an inexpensive, fun dolly fix. I know they aren't for everyone, but I"m sure enjoying mine.

Sharing the Iple love!

Something a little different, and a plug for one of my favorite doll boards. I started this blog to devote a space to my vinyl dolls. (For those that don't know, I collect both vinyl and resin dolls). I n recent years I've completely fallen in love with the Iplehouse BJD's. Pictured above is the doll that converted me from vinyl to resin. He is an Iplehouse Strongman Luo. Anyway, I've noticed a lot of fellow vinyl lovers have become interested in learning more about Iplehouse. I've received quite a lot of PM's and emails from people interested in learning more about the Iple dolls.
For those that are interested in learning more about the Iplehouse BJD's, I thought I would post a link to a doll board started to share the "Iple" love. It's called I-mag-i-nation. While the focus is Iple dolls, other dolls are welcome to be shared as well. So, if you are an Iple enthusiast, like me, or are just interested in learning more about the Iple dolls, come join us! We would love to have you.

Off Topic..............

I started this blog as a place to showcase my vinyl dolls, as I have a LJ (Resin Residents linked here) that I showcase my resin dolls. Since this girl is fashion doll related, I thought I would post her here as well.
She is Jamieshow Sasha, from AngelicDreamz............I have TY, one of the Jamieshow male dolls and love him, and I had been keeping my eye on the new released, hoping to get one of the girls eventually. When AD released the St Tropez line I knew I wanted one of them, making the decision of which one was the tricky part. I finally decided on Sasha and she arrived yesterday. She's gorgeous...................the resin is beautiful. She comes fully blushed. Her posing ability is wonderful. She comes with a magnetic wig, but also has a headcap so that she can wear regular wigs. If you are looking for a way to try out the resin fashion dolls, Jamieshow is a GREAT way to get started. I don't think you will find more value for your dolly dollars anywhere.
One last shot of Sasha. The outfit she is wearing here is what she comes in, with the exception of the wig, which was an extra purchase.
