Dolly Body Diversity

Posted by on

This is an article about how fashion dolls got to looking the way they did and why, and how the rise of ready-to-wear and fast fashion caused us all to forget something very important: There are no bad body shapes, only clothes that do/do not suit different body shapes.

G3 Monster High Hand Fix

Posted by on

If you read my review on Abbey you might have noticed that I have a problem with the new G3 Monster High hands.  Someone suggested I contact Mattel's customer service for replacement hands, so I'll pass on that advice to anyone who has already had hands snapping off like me! But, being a customizer and dolly doctor, I sat down with my dolls and did some experiments to see if I could find a preventative fix.  I did, and it's pretty easy, so let me show you how: Examining the wrist, it seems like the issue is the knob on...

I had a new ken doll in the review queue but whenever a new MH doll is leaked I start getting questions about sizing immediately. Guys, Mattel doesn't send me stuff in advance!  I get them when I manage to find them at a non-scalper price online or IRL, which by my local stores is 2-3 months after the actual release.  Abbey is my favorite gal from the not-main cast (main cast fave is Cleo) for pretty much the same reason I love Cleo.  Strong personality, independent, equally good by herself or with friends.  And she can pick up Heath...

Dollfie Dream Boy Sizing & Review

Posted by on

I've been waiting for this guy to show up for a long time!  Eiji was a Volks preorder doll, which means everyone who wanted one could get one but that also means a lot of dolls had to be made to be delivered so it's been... about 8 months since I ordered him. Let's see how he measures up! TBH I expected something a little more on the lines of a Smart Doll Boy.  Not necessarily in height, but erm, a little more boy-shaped? I should probably explain that better.  There are certain aesthetic ideals to male/female bodies that tends...
