Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas Petite "Sweet for Silver" (Kira)

Hi everyone!

I haven't been in the mood for writting during a couple of days due to a little dissappointment with a Barbie doll. Long story short, I bought one of the new Barbie Look dolls from Amazon when she got back to a "fair" price, but when I received her, she was wonky. I bought another one that didn't arrive on Saturday, as I expected, and I had to wait until Monday. The new doll doesn't look THAT wonky, but I can see her face is not simmetrical. Between the whole wonky situation and the delay in the second doll, I'm not as excited about her as I should be. I posted a pic of the wonky eyed one on Twitter and tagged Mattel, still no comment. Anyway, at least I have a replacement doll and the wrong one is going back to the Amazon warehouse.

 Luckily, the doll in today's review is not wonky at all. Please everyone, welcome Barbie Fashionistas number 62 "Sweet for Silver", better know by some fans as Kira. Kira was Barbie's asian friend and she was featured in many Barbie lines back in the 80s and 90s. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the name Kira appeared during the late 80s or early 90s, and previously Barbie asian friends had other names like Miko or Dana. However, at some point, Kira was pulled out of the Barbie line and many fans were waiting for her comeback. And here she is!

A touch of glitter

Do you ever feel like doing something different with your dolls? Personally, I'd love to try new things when it comes to doll photography, like going outside. Also, I like to try new background colors, as you can see in my Pop of Color posts. So, ever since I saw and Ever After High pic with a glittery background, I wanted to try that myself. Back in September I found some glittery cardstock in a stationary shop and I bought 3, but I never found the time to do a photoshoot. Then, a couple of days ago, I was looking at my Instagram posts and noticed that 90% of my photos have my navy blue background that I use for reviews. So, it's finally time to try something new!

The first background is this black glitter cardboard. I choose black because I wanted a neutral color that would match most of my dolls. Above you  can see how it looks against Victoria.

Doll Review: DC Super Hero Girls Starfire

Hi everyone! Happy July, specially to everyone in the USA who are celebrating the 4th of July!
Today is time to review my last DC Super Hero Girls doll, Starfire. Yes, I pretty much collect DC Super Hero Girls now, even though I said I wasn't going to collect them. Starfire is my 5th DC Super Hero Girls doll, and, if you are interested,  you can see all my Super Hero Girls related posts here

Starfire is an extraterrestrian warrior princess from a planet called Tamaran and her real name is Koriand'r (which sound really funny to me). On the DC Super Hero Girls show, she somehow has a portal that conects to her planet. Her super powers are flight, strenght and her light blasts called starbolts. Also, when she flies  her hair is in flames and it's super cool.

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionista Curvy "So Sporty"

Hello doll lovers! How are you? June is coming to its end and I still haven't scheduled my time to do all the dolly and non-dolly projects that I have on my mind. I have quite a few dolls to review, plus two more that are on their way. Some of those dolls have been in their boxes for months! Also, I want to do a couple crafts, like a quick diorama to take better doll pics. 

One of the dolls that had been waiting for her time in the spotlight is doll #38  So Sporty, from the Barbie Fashionistas 2016 line. She has the curvy body and is one of those dolls that came with fashions. To be honest, I wasn't super excited about this one, but she has surprised me for good. Let's start the review!

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionista Petite "Style so sweet"

Hi everyone!
I know I haven't posted in a week, but the first season of Attack on Titan was about to leave Netflix and I really had to binge watch it. Also, I have a new work schedule at my job and I'm getting used to it. But finally, I managed to get some time to write.

I'm coming home

Hi everyone! Long time, no see! Sorry, not to have posted since March, but I've been really busy this semester. The projects just seemed to overlap one another and I didn't manage to find a few free days to do a quick doll review. But finally, I'm free for a couple of months and I will be able to do reviews and enjoy my doll collection.

So, what have I been up to since I last posted? Well, not much in my personal life, but my doll collection has expanded. I found the orange top Made To Move Barbie (finally!) and she came home. Also, I got a couple of the new Fashionistas. 

I don't have the pink haired one yet. I saw her yesterday at Toys'r'us and the only one left had a wonky eye, so I didn't pick her. I also want to find the Kira one that's starting to show up on USA and the one with silver hair and the Skipper head sculpt.

Doll Review: Adrienne Attoms with volcano experiment (Project MC2)

Hi everyone! How are you? I'm quite busy with University right now, but I managed to take a little bit of time here and there to do a quick doll review. I'd love to be able to do a few more reviews during this semester, but I can't promise anything. Today it's time to review Adrienne Attoms, from the Project MC2 line. A few weeks ago I reviewed McKeyla, so if you missed it, check it out here. 

Adrienne Attoms Volcano experiment monster crafts doll review

Adrienne Attoms is the culinary chemist of the team and she loves cooking both delicious dishes and chemical solutions. On the Project MC2 website it says that Adrienne Attoms is from Spain and that she moved to USA because her dad is a diplomatic. Being spanish myself, when I first saw the dolls, I thought that the spanish would be McKeyla or Camryn and I was quite surprised to discover it was Adrienne.
