A quick update on my doll storage

Those who know me personally know that I'm a really unorganized person. It's extremely difficult for me to figure out how to take the most of the space or organize stuff. My dolls weren't an exception, and the space they were taking and the lack of organization were starting to be an issue. However, inspired by a discussion posted on Doll Observers, I decided to put some order to my doll world.

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas "Ice Cream Romper"

Hello everyone! First of all, I like to thank you all for all the lovely comments I have received from you lately, not only in this blog, but also on Twitter and Instagram. I have never considered myself a good photographer, so the sweet comments really brighten up my day.

Today it's time for another doll review, and it's turn for Barbie fashionista "Ice Cream Romper", from the 2015 fashionistas line. I got this doll back in may from Amazon.es together with Mr. Monster's birthay present, but until today I didn't have time to open her.

Doll furniture: the chair

Hello there! What have you been up to?

I finally managed to finish my chair! Yes, it took a while, but finaly here it is. It doesn't look exactly how I thought at the beggining, but I'm quite happy with the result. It's not perfect, but I'm not very crafty, so I think I did OK.

Pop of color 2

Hello everyone! 

I've been busy this week so I haven't been able to post anything. I'm working on that chair, slowly, but I'm working on it. Mr. Monster has been busy painting the house so he hasn't been able to help me with the pictures.To do something in the meantime, I've been taking some pictures of my dolls. If you read my Pop of color post, you know that I've taken some color samples from the shop where I work to use them as backgrounds for doll photography. I've returned a few of the ones I had and borrowed a few more. I must confess that when I'm not busy in my job, I can't stop thinking "Which colour am I going to grab next?". 

I didn't plan to do another photoshoot post, I wanted to do a craft post, but I'm getting a little bit frustrated that I can't get things done and I don't want to be absent from the blog such a long time. Also, I like to experiment with photography and colors. If you have been following me on Instagram, you probably have already seen some of the pictures, but here we go.

Doll Review: Posea Reef

Hello everyone! After the head-swapping fever, I didn't know what to do next, so Mr. Monster suggested me to do another Monster High review. Lately, the ghouls and mansters from Monster High haven't been featured in this blog as much as other dolls, so I thought it was fair.

Today it's time to review Posea Reef, from the Great Scarrier Reef line. I know that this doll is not exactly a new release, and it has been reviewed by many people before (and probably much better), but the reason why I do reviews is because if I didn't do it, I would be like: "Oh, a new doll! -opens box- Nice doll! - takes a couple of quick pictures and puts the doll on a shelf."


Posea Reef is the daughter of Poseidon and lives in the Great Scarrier Reef, where she takes her of the sea creatures. In the Great Scarrier Reef movie, Posea brings the ghouls to the reef, so Lagoona can face her "deepest fear".

Getting new bodies

Hello my dear doll collectors!

If you have been following this blog for a few weeks, you probably already know that I wanted to try to rebody some fashionistas into Made to Move bodies, and finally this morning I managed to do it. I was a little bit scared because I'm a really clumsy person, but the result was great and I can't be happier.


Made To Move rebody LA Girl Donut Top

I know that some of you have already rebodied some dolls (I'm not talking about you Phyllis *wink*), and there's tons of info about how to do it on the Internet. So, with this post I don't pretend to teach you how to do it, but about my first rebody experience.

Made to Move

Hello everyone! I can't belive it's July already!

I've had a lazy weekend and I haven't worked much on my doll stuff. I still have a chair to do but I'm focusing on other things in order to avoid working on that. As I told you on previous posts, I got a few spare Made To Move Barbie dolls in order to rebody some of my Barbie fashionistas. I bought them only for rebody purpose, but I felt like I should dedicate a post to those girls before ripping their heads. 


Those girls are Barbie and Teresa (the one with blue top, I don't really know if she's Teresa). Originally, I bought Barbie to become the new body for the L.A. Girl, until I found out that the L.A Girl matches better the Lea (purple top) skintone. Because I don't have another fashionista to rebody, Barbie will stay as herself while Teresa is going to donate her body to the Donut Top Fashionista.

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas "Donut top"

Hello everyone! Did you miss me? I don't think so, because I've been posting so often that I haven't given you time to miss me :P.

So, are you ready for another doll review? I don't know if I'm going to review all of my unboxed dolls, not only because I won't probably have enough time, but also because some dolls I don't feel like doing a review. 



 Today I'm going to review Barbie Fashionistas "Donut Top". I don't really know if her official name was "Donut Top", but it was the name she figured out on many online shops. I'm going to review this particular dolls because she's one of the dolls that's going to be rebodied, along with the L.A. Girl, but I wanted to make a post about her before I going off with her head.
