Elsa Updates

I've decided that I'm going to post the Elsa review on December 21st, since it's the winter solstice.
Also, have some teaser images of her.

A Quick Question

First off, my Disney Store Elsa just arrived today, so should I do a review of her, or is there enough reviews of this doll? Even if I don't review her, there will be pictures, so if you've come here for pictures of Elsa, you'll be in luck.

Also, I managed to find Invisibilly, but there's plenty of good reviews of him out there. He has a paint error on his left leg, but otherwise, he's perfect. His hair is incredibly soft, too, and I love the darker shades of blue blended in with the black.

I can't wait to hear your opinion!

I'm Back (for a moment, at least)

Don't worry, I haven't entirely forgotten this blog!

I've been busy with school and marching band, and I've been too busy to even think about dolls. I love marching band, though. Our show is called "Reflections on the Blue Frontier", and it's about the ocean. It has been a challenging show at parts, but I've been enjoying the challenge.

But I'm here for the dolls right now, not the music.

I've been keeping up with all of the new releases as well as I can, given my schedule. I haven't bought a new doll in about two months, but I want to own Invisibilly and Dexter Charming (I have a weakness for boy dolls). I've been waiting for Invisibilly's release for a while now, and Dexter is adorable! However, my area is slow in receiving new releases. I have seen Monster High's Freaky Fusion and Save Frankie line at my local Walmart, but wave 2 of Barbie Glam Luxe Style has not shown up yet. Then again, I have not checked the toy aisles in a long time, so hopefully Walmart has restocked since then.

In other, more positive news, Disney Store Elsa has restocked on the Disney Store website, so I might have to get her. I've been waiting to get her for about a year now, so I'm actually quite excited about getting her. Also, there is a possibility that I may be buying my first BJD. It's not final as of yet, but I am probably purchasing Salem, who is manufactured by Blue Blood Doll.

I have decided to go through with the rebodying project with Lea and Raquelle when I have more time. I am not freckling Lea during this particular customization, as I want to have more skill in customization and repaints before I attempt it on her. However, I appreciate everyone's advice and encouragement in this vast (and oftentimes confusing) field. It's also been hard for me to upload photos to Blogger from Dropbox (I have to download the photos and then upload then), so if anyone has tips about this, feel free to offer advice!

I know this post is very wordy, so here's some pictures of Raquelle that I took on a rainy day to break up the monotony:
 I thought that this picture shows off her dainty, elegant hands well (one of my favorite features of the Fashionista body!).
 I think that this particular picture is one of my favorites I've ever taken of her. I love how her bright colors are glowing! (Yes, the robe is handmade!)
I've captured many expressions in Raquelle's face-happiness, sleepiness, seductiveness, skepticality, amongst many others-but in this picture, I've captured sadness, which I've never seen in most Barbies' faces.

I'm sorry that I've been gone for so long. I will pick this blog up again in due time, I promise.

Again, thank you for your unwavering support.

Sorry about the hiatus. I've been busy with personal stuff, and I haven't felt like playing with my dolls. The good news is that I'm working on the review right now, and it'll be up as soon as I can write it!

Updates . . .

Hey, I'm writing my second post! Let's keep this up.

Sorry I haven't posted much! I actually have a few full deboxing reviews waiting in the wings, but I only have the pictures taken.

However, I do have some pictures, and some teasers.

I know next to nobody's reading this blog (yet), but I'd like some customizing advice. You see, I got an unarticulated ballerina Barbie because her face was gorgeous. I'm planning on doing a rebody with a Raquelle doll and possibly giving the donor body freckles. The thing is, I've never done any customizing, so I feel like advice is a must.

Also, when I'm doing the customization, I'll be documenting it in this order:

A. Review of Ballerina doll (on her original body)
B. Review of Raquelle doll (who will be the body donor)
C. Actual pictures of customization process
D. Picture spam and final thoughts of the Ballerina doll (on body donor body)

By the way, here's a picture of the Ballerina doll (I'm pretty sure she's called Barbie Fairytale Magic Ballerina Lea Doll or something ridiculous among those lines):

I'm very excited about this series, since I think it has a lot of potential. However, I am nervous. But I'll do it, because that face is too pretty to be stuck on a cheap unarticulated body.

Also, here's some picture spam of Raquelle:

This is the homemade dress she was wearing at the end of my review, but the deep V-neck is in the front. She's also wearing a Flavas denim jacket, and the sandals from the 2013 Barbie beach fashion pack. I like how there's a boho chic vibe to this outfit now. Of course, if I added Life in the Dreamhouse Teresa's boots, necklace, and purse, it would have been even more boho chic, but this was a spur of the moment photo. I like how it turned out, though.

Feel free to give advice and/or opinions!

I'm Kayleigh, the girl who did the guest review of Life in the Dreamhouse Raquelle for the Toy Box Philosopher. Doing that guest review sparked my interest in blogging, and I decided to get this blog.

I have many interests, but dolls are one of my favorites. I collect many different types of different dolls, but mostly Barbie, Monster High, Ever After High, J-Dolls, Moxie Teenz, J-Dolls, Bratzillaz, and Bratz. I'll mostly be writing about dolls, but occasionally I'll do an album or song review, and I might post some examples of my other writing. I'll be doing full deboxings occasionally, but mostly I'll be doing overviews of dolls I've already deboxed. I like classic and prog rock (Rush, Marillion, Jethro Tull, Queen, etc.), so I'll mostly be discussing songs by these bands when I do music reviews.

I hope you enjoy my blog!
