new stuff!

I was lucky enough to snag a Home Ick Abbey & Heath set on amazon last week, and a Music Festival Abbey at Kroger. I still can't believe Kroger has been more reliable for new Monster High dolls than any of my other local stores! FYI: Venus seems to be the most popular in the Music Festival line, with Abbey in a close second, so you should probably grab them when you see them.

I was also able to get the Target exclusive Skull Shores 5 pack finally, and during their sale no less. Super excited about that. it was also really neat to meet a local Monster High fan. a local girl had decided not to buy it, and as her mom put it back I squeed. I thanked the girl profusely.

so hopefully I'll be able to get reviews up for those soon, along with all my long delayed ones. I had intended to work on them while accompanying my hubby on a work trip, but the overseas internet connection and my lack of right-mouse button on my laptop keyboard was too frustrating. anyone have suggestions for a good bluetooth mouse?

Monster High Scaris Deuce Gorgon, review

Scaris Deuce has been nearly impossible to find. I lucked upon a return at Toys'R'Us. [update 11/27: he has been available on amazon again the past few days!] while he may seem like an unlikely addition to this line, it is interesting to note that Scaris is the first line that includes all 6 of the original characters.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: new Deuce, with articulated wrists

The Bad: hard to find, hood does not fit over head

The Verdict: if you missed out on wave 1 Deuce this has been Deuce's only other release, and will probably stay that way for a while. if you are at all interested in the character, I advise you to pick up Scaris Deuce if you see him.

Howleen's fashion show

In typical little sister fashion (pun not intended) Howleen has raided big sister Clawdeen's closet. first she borrowed Clawdeen's dress from the Wolf sisters 2 pack. I think the green bodice contrasts nicely with Howleen's orange hair. the dress is also ever so slightly less scandalously short on her than it was on Clawdeen.

next she borrowed Clawdeen's sweater and belt from the second basic Clawdeen. she decided that Operetta's capris looked better than Clawdeen's purple leggings. to accessorize she borrowed big brother Clawd's hat and her only pair of fitting shoes.

finally she decided to try on the dress Draculara forgot after a creepover. honestly, I think Howleen pulls it off better than DLaura does...
