Name that doll

Hello everyone! How are you? July is about to end and I wonder what I have done with my time. I still have lots of things to do before the new course starts!


Today's post is a little bit different. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you may have noticed that, at the end of my posts, I usually ask for name suggesstions for my dolls. So, I've decided to put all my unamed dolls together in this post and try to find a name for them. Some I have already a name or two in mind, but some I have no ideas. Let's start!

Doll Review: Barbie Fashionistas "B-Fabulous"

Hi everyone! Are you enjoying your summer? This week I'm on holidays, but instead of playing with my dolls, I've been really busy doing other stuff, like assembling some Ikea furniture and doing paper work. Also, this weekend Mr. Monster and I are going to a music festival, so no doll reviews this Sunday!


The doll of today's review is Barbie Fashionista #34 B-Fabulous, from the 2016 Barbie Fashionistas. This doll came out when the new bodies were released, even though she uses the original body. Like So Sporty or Pretty in Paisley, she comes with 2 extra outfits.

Shop Review: Atelierni Sasha on Etsy

Hello everyone.

I haven't posted in a few days because I didn't feel like doing so. When I get home from work sometimes I'm very tired and last week I just felt like lying on the sofa and watch Doctor Who. However, a couple of days ago I received something that I ordered from Etsy back in June. My Atelierni Sasha dresses! 


For a long time I wanted to buy from Atelieni Sasha, and finally this June I made up my mind and picked two dresses. In all honesty, I was on the fence between writting this review or not, because I had spoken with Sasha before; but I think that credit has to be given when credit is due. So, let's start!

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.
