Making glasses for Monster High dolls

Hello ghouls!

I can't believe it's almost the end of February! New semester is starting soon, so that means that, unfortunatelly, I won't be able to post on a regular basis until June. I will make an effort to come here at least once per month, but I can't promise anything.

Today I want to share with you a small craft I've been working on: doll glasses. I'm trying to make a small tutorial of how I did them, but this craft is far from being perfect. Also, I wish I had taken more and better pictures during the process! I got this idea inspired by one of my favourite Monster High characters, Ghoulia Yelps. 


For this craft I used cardboard from a cereal or cookie box, glue, a nail file, a precission knife and craft paint. For kids that might be reading this, you should ask an adult to help you.

Doll review: Porter Geiss

Hello my doll lovers, what have you been up to?

Sorry I didn't post anything earlier, but houses need to be cleaned from time to time and mine was in serious need. Also, this week I wasn't very motivated to write anything, I've been quite dissapointed with the doll world. I didn't have a very good experience while contacting Mattel's Customer Support, despite other's people good experiences. So, as you may understand, I wasn't really looking foward to come to this blog and talk about their products.

But let's forget about the whole Customer Support thing and let's move on onto the review. Today I'm going to review Porter "Paintergeist" Geiss, from the Monster High line Haunted. From this line I have already reviewed Kiyomi Haunterly and River Styxx, you can read them here and here. Porter is the son of a poltergeist and he attends a school for ghosts called Haunted High. Honestly, this doll being a ghost was kind of ironic, because it took me like a hundred years to find him while other collectors told me that they had seen him in several stores. Finally, I had to buy him on Amazon and, thanks to the wonderful spanish postal service, he arrived later than expected, so I couldn't review him before I started University.



Porter is an artist and he loves painting everything he finds with ghost paint, so that's why his nickname is Paintergeist. Because of that he seems to always be in detention.

The new Barbie body types

 I know this is old news, but Mattel has just released 3 new body types for their most popular doll. I'm probably late to the party commenting this, but I just wanted to say a few words about it.

Doll review: Signature Ginger Breadhouse

Hello doll lovers!

Today it's time to review my second Ever After High doll, Ginger Breadhouse, daughter of the Candy Witch. I didn't mention in my Darling Charming review that I got this two dolls from Amazon.com, because, apparently, the Ever After High doll line is no longer being sold in Spain. It's so sad, because some of the latest dolls seem quite interesting and now you have no other option than buying them from USA. 


So let's go back to the doll. Ginger Breadhouse is one of the newest students at Ever After High. She's a rebel because she doesn't to follow her destiny as the next Candy Witch from the Hansel and Gretel tale, she would rather be a famous chef.
