I've decided to revamp this old blog a bit and concentrate mainly on the male fashion and character dolls. I've been a fan of the male dolls since Tonner introduced Matt and all the fabulous artists out there started repainting him. For a while I focused my collection on the repainted male Tonner dolls. While I love dolls in general and certainly collect the girls too, the male dolls remain a bit of a focus here.................they aren't just accessories.
Found the Monster High "Build a Monster" basic kits at TRU the other day. Each kit has 2 heads and 2 sets of arms/legs to pair with one torso. The kit also includes 1 wig and 2 outfits. First up here is the vampire girl. She is actually wearing a wig from the Liv dolls and a Disney VIP dress. She is probably my least favorite of the 4 sculpts, but I like her in this dress and wig.
Next up, the dragon girl. She has textered limbs and wings that are very cool. Also love her patterned eyeshadow that is very scale like. I'm calling mine "Pyra". She is one of my 2 favorites. Wearing a dress from Bratz here.
Lastly, the Sea Monster girl wearing the dress from dragon girl. I've named mine Nessie. I have a hard time picking between here and Pyra for my favorite. I haven't taken pics of my werewolf girl yet, because Nessie doesn't want to give up the torso yet. I wish they would include a torso piece in each color. I would have gladly paid $5 more to get an extra torso so each doll would "match".
I've been searching for this guy since my interest in Barbie has renewed again, but he is getting really hard to find. I finally came across a nude one last week on ebay and hit the buy button to bring him home. He is a wonderful likeness to Johnny Depp IMHO.
If he were easier to find I would get another. Love that Mattel used the articulated body, like Harley Ken's. I really wish they would have used that on Japan Ken as well. I love the articulated body.
I've been meaning to add Tonner's Victoria from the Twilight group to my collection since she came out, other things just seemed to push in front of her on my list. I noticed recently though that she's getting a bit harder to find so figured it was time to push that buy button.
She arrived home last week and I had to take some time with her and the camera this morning. Aside from the fact that she has Tonner big head syndrome..................James has it too, so I guess they will display fine together, she is a gorgeous doll. I really do wish Tonner would go back to the smaller heads (the size the Tyler doll line heads were when the dolls first premiered).
And my favorite shot from this morning's shoot. She just looks a bit dangerous here to m.
