Doll Review: The Barbie Look "Music Festival"

Hello everyone! What have you been up to?

As I told you on my last post, I've just started University again and I'm quite busy with projects. However, I managed to finish all of them on time and the next project won't be assigned until next week, so I have a few days to play with my dolls.

Today I want to review Barbie Look Music Festivals, from the Barbie collector line. She's my first Barbie Look doll, aswell as my first Black Label doll. In case someone is not familiarized with what "black label" means, on The Barbie Collection you can find all the terminology explained. From the first time I saw her, I really wanted this doll, but The Look dolls are retailed for 55€ in my country, so I was waiting to get her. Luckily, a couple of weeks ago I found an offer on and I got her for 35€.

Saturday fun finds

Hello everyone!

Today Mr. Monster and I spent the morning in a city close to where we live that's bigger and has more offer in shops. We've gone mainly to do some doll hunting but, despite finding Batgirl for 6€ less than the usual price, we haven't found any interesting dolls. However, we've gone to a store called Flying Tiger and I've found some interesting things in 1:6 scale. You can try the store locator to see if there's a shop close to your area.

I discovered this shop thanks to another spanish doll collector. I asked where she got a chair I saw on one of her photos and she told me about this stores. So I searched for the closest store and it was just 30 minute drive from my hometown.

Doll review: DC Super Hero Girls Bumblebee

Hello my dear doll lovers!

Summer has flown by very quickly and, all of the sudden, it's the school year again. University starts tomorrow for me, but I still have a few days before hard work starts, so I hope I can still write another post. I'm quite happy that I've writen a lot on this blog this summer, but unfortunally I haven't been able to finish some projects or to write all the post that I had planned. During the semester I won't be able to post much, but you can still contact me on my Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram

On my last post, I reviewed Poison Ivy, from the DC Super Hero Girls line, and I mentioned that Bumblebee is my favourite, but she wasn't in the shop. Well, today I managed to find Bumblebee, and I couldn't resist getting her. 

 Bumblebee is, like Poison Ivy,  an student at Super Hero High. She's got the abilty to shrink thanks to her suit, and her wings allow her to fly.  In the comics, her real name is Karen Beecher, but I don't think her real name is mentioned on the DC Super Hero Girls webisodes.

Doll Review: DC Super Hero Girls Poison Ivy

Hello my dear doll lovers! What have you been up to?

Today it's been a great day: I've had my morning off and I've gone to a  toy store. As usual, they didn't seem to have many new things in the Barbie section, but then Mr. Monster saw something in another shelf: DC Super Hero Girls! They were all except Bumblebee (my favourite) and Harley Quinn. I was between choosing Poison Ivy and Batgirl, and I finally chose Poison Ivy. So here she is!

The Super Hero Girls line is about teenage super heroes that go to an speciall high school to learn to control their powers. Some of the most popular super heroes from DC are featured in this line, like Wonder Woman. Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn are villians on the DC Universe, but in this line they're heroes in training.

Ever After Crafts

Or I could just have called it: "An excuse to unbox Raven and Briar without doing a review". Well, honestly, for a long time I've been wanting to write a post about my Ever After High collection, which is still very small. It's kind of an overview post. It's a great chance to talk about those dolls that I have already unboxed and unbox those who I don't want to do a review about, so they can have their shinning moment on this blog. I did the same thing with my Barbie collection a while ago, and in case you haven't read it, you can just click here.

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas Petite "Rock'N'Roll Plaid"

Hello everyone! I can't belive it's September alredy! University starts in a couple of weeks, so that means it's almost that time of the year when I fall asleep in the sofa while reading the text book after  having worked for a whole day.

I've done some (small) progress on my living room diorama walls , and I hope I can finish it before university starts. I don't have much furniture yet, but I'll do it with the furniture I have. However, today it's time to review one of the newest Barbie Fashionistas: doll nº Rock'N'Roll Plaid.

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas curvy "Chambray Chic"

Hello everyone!

Today it's time for another doll review: Barbie Fashionistas doll number 22 Chambray Chic. Originally, I didn't plan to review this doll, but because I have a little custom project for her in mind, I wanted to share some pics of the before with you.

Chambray Chic was introduced in the 2016 Barbie Fashionistas line and is in the new curvy body. I have already reviewed two dolls with that body type: Sweetheart Stripes and Spring into Style.

Pop of Color 3

Hello everyone!

I've been quite busy lately and I' haven't been able to post anything or work on anything for my dolls lately. I still have so many things to do and write about before this summer is over and I'm back to class. I'm working on a living room diorama for my dolls, so I could take some scene doll photography, but truth is that I haven't worked much on it. However, I've found some time to take some doll photos and I'll like to share them with you. 

As I told on a previous post, I've bought some new colored cardstock for doll photography, but I just haven't had time until now to show you. As you now, I've been using some color sample sheets from my job for doll photography, but the problem with that is that they are A-4 size, so I cant take  full body photos. So, I decided to get some big size colored cardboard, and one of the new colors I got is a bright orange. Evie looks great against it.
