Welcome to the Doll General!A thread for discussion of fashion dolls including Barbie, Disney, LOL OMG, Living Dead Dolls, Licca-chan etc but not BJD.Other toys considered dolls as well as girl collectable toys that are related to dolls or can be used as accessories to dolls are also welcome such as LOL, Capsule Chix, Shopkins, Polly Pocket and the like.Previous Thread: >>9729525>Archived Threads: https://archive.alice.al/toy/search/subject/Fashion%20doll/>Sewing pattern books from Google+, reuploadedhttps://mega.nz/folder/iFd3wapa#B70grHUe4xsTkLU_s8Ag_Q
Susies got some new outfits
Here's the next core omg, Melrose, funky qt's big sister
>>9755959Here's her pair but not really opposite tho, artsy and rock??? Artist and scientific or rocker and ballerina would have been better opposite plus they already have the tots
>>9755975I think it's just dark color aesthetic vs bright color aesthetic
I don't collect OMG but the new doll proportions seem pretty drastic. Maybe to make clothes swap more compatible with RH?
An auction I had my eye on ended early and I'm trying not to be sad about it. How do you all cope when you miss a doll you wanted?
>>9756136This plus musician and painter, different creative mediums
>>9756175There's going to be another auction some dayJust concentrate on your other goals for now
I'm thinking about getting a Licca Castle doll but I don't actually know much about Licca and I know a thread or two ago someone was talking about her. Does her size vary at all can she fit into any clothing packs sold for her? Who else's clothes does she fit in? What about shoes? Should I make sure to get Licca Castle shoes for her?
>>9756258You should scroll through the previous thread before it deletes because an anon gave some useful info to my question about shoes. I bought my first Castle recently and her feet were too big for any other doll shoes I had. I've been having good luck with Blythe dresses for her though. My understanding is that there's a shorter body type and taller body type, but I don't know enough about them to answer in depth.
>>9756258>>9756266Oh wait, it was the PREVIOUS previous thread, it's still in archive but I'll paste what anon said about shoes for you.>Yes, Jenny/Licca both have larger feet than normal Barbie. I can squeeze curvy/tall Barbie shoes onto mine, they can also wear Liv doll shoes and Creatable World shoes. I don't think any other current playline dolls have compatible feet asides from tall/fat Barbie though.
>>9756267Thank you for the spoonfeeding nona I appreciate you. I think I'll be sure to get her some shoes when I get her. That's always the hardest thing is making sure the shoes fit. A dress can be a bit too big but shoes have to fit. I was probably going to use mandarake to get mine but I'm still looking around and deciding what I want to do. I love how many options there are for the castle dolls faces and hair color. I wish I could just go there myself and pick one in person.
>>9756288Same, I'm already looking for another one with a particular head sculpt in a color combo I like, I love all the variation and how many of them are kind of unique. I wish they had more of a western fanbase so there were more guides and comparisons and such in english.
>>9756258I just got my castle the other day, I’ll post some pics soon but she’s this one. I find that Licca clothes fits RH perfectly but Licca has a tiny tiny waist so RH is hit or miss. Shirts and jackets look good on her. The Licca fashion packs should all fit though, in general Licca clothes is very loose.I will say, you’re paying for the collector’s item with Castles more than anything so pick one that’s unique and that you really like, especially if it’s much over regular Licca price
>>9756306Alright, time for the cutest bitch you ever met. Sweater is obviously RH, Avery trunk. It's a little loose but it's a sweater so who cares. Skirt is from an OMG Tween, Aya Cherry. Obviously too short and it just barely fits, I don't have any normal OMG to try though. It fits a little better without the tights but she'd be extremely leggy an in a like 1mm skirt. RH bottoms are def too big. Tights and shoes are Licca. I'm glad Aya comes with those second bottoms cause I don't think she's getting that skirt back, I love this fit.
>>9756340that looks really good. good job, anon.
>>9756340Tbh I think the hood gets bonus points for actually fitting her head unlike the RH dollar, even if it's a little goofy with her ponytail
>>9756169Wtf, is the shorter one normal OMG? The new one is GIGANTIC>>9755975Not into these desu
>>9756340>>9756351What a sweetie!
>>9756378>is the shorter one normal OMG?I'm not super familiar with them but I think so? Unless she's a tween dressed the same. Originals are 10 inches tall so I wonder what that would make them, at least 14, maybe 16 inches?
>>9756169>>9756378>>9756399Regular OMG are about 9.5 inches tall, a little shorter than most 1/6 fashion dolls. Just approximating from this one photo, I'd guess the new Fierce girls will be around 12 inches. Pretty normal doll size, nothing to worry about. It just looks big in comparison. The "art style" of OMGs is quite compressed, height wise, I suppose.
>>9756169Royal bee's soft, round, beautifully curly afro was my favourite part of the old design. I like the hairstyle on the new one but I wish they kept the curl pattern the same.
with mh reboot coming up, will the older mh dolls start to sell better on the secondhand market? i wanted to sell a bunch of mine back when the line ended but everyone was purging at that time and it was too saturated to make many sales, so i just kept them in hopes that the market would change later
>>9758527I thought I saw a comment a few threads ago that the prices on secondhand MH jumped recently? Presumably because they're so popular with repainters?
Did someone already posted about the alleged monster high playline dolls? They were copyrighted multiple posts on insta and youtube so it pretty much confirms they're real.
>>9760226I dont think they had been posted in these threads but i did saw some extremely blurry and small images of what might be a playset, a box with doll accessories but no doll and a bigfoot tier blurry image of the dolls? Did ppl leaked more?
Rate her fit
>>9760516Socks ruin it
>>9760516there was looney tunes clothes packs?
>>9760516Kid playing dress up
>>9760516Rotate your photos
>>97605161/10 barely tried
>>9760866Yeah, pretty much lol.
New "Fancy" Extras to come, will be a little over $30
>>9761140Why is the one in the middle wearing oven mitts? I'd get the one on the left if whatever that stuff is on her thighs are just tights and not some kind of freaky decal. I'd also give her a head swap, the faces on all three are 5 levels beyond ugly.
>>9761250Oh my god I cannot unsee the oven mitts lmao
>>9761250Because any attempt at gloves has always turned into oven mitts, this has constantly been a thing with barbie idk why they keep doing it
>>9761250Almost certain those are tights
>>9761140The pink dress is kind of cute, but I just know the quality of these is going to be horrific
>>9761140I wish pink had a Steffi face or a side glance. Getting real tired seeing Millie all the time.
>>9761140Surprisingly decent outfits for Extras desu
>>9761140I was excited for the pink one until I realized her outfit is made out of that awful cheap pleather material. It’s going to crumble and turn to dust in a few years.
The lol tween are really the best smaller dolls on the market rn.They ate up the extra girlies and even omgs.Here the next wave: scene girl, ginger spice, marilyn monroe and bridgerton extra
>>9763378Here the next omg boy.Not really a fan of his design i would have liked the brother of one of the michael jackson lol
>>9763378OMG EMMA EMO, I must get her
>>9763378They are really cute, I don’t love LOL at any other scale but they are perfect. And they have great designs, I only have Aya Cherry and Cherry BB (I assume they’re Cherry besties) but there are a few more I want. I want to see more of Emma Emo, I may need her for the nostalgia
>>9763378Emma is a need.
>>9763378>Emo>It's clearly SceneREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>9764153probably designed by a zoomer who wasn't around for the scene vs emo days and thus doesn't get it
>>9764394Zoomers were children during the scene phase, probably a gen x or elder millennial who missed out on it
Got Jett yesterday after not being very interested in her, but she's seriously gorgeous. I wish all the dolls were this quality, though she is clearly more expensive.
>>9764583She's got the extra articulation doesn't she?
>>9764583I saw her on clearance at end of year, but passed her. I'm tempted to get one one or two of the beach ones but not sure.
>>9764585Yeah, ankles and torso I believe.>>9764603She’s definitely worth picking up on sale. $80 or whatever her Msrp is is a lot but I got her for $35 I think and she feels worth more than that. She feels more like a collector doll than play, which I guess is the point.
>>9763378as a drawfag I love the illustrations for many of the dolls. Itty BItty Pretties are my favourite so far.
>>9763359fuck me, you're right. She won't last more than ten years. That shit since it's unstable polymers as soon as they leech, it becomes brittle and falls apart. I'm looking at you, 'vegan leathers' - you turn to microplastics in a decade. Literally worse for the environment than regular leather.
>>9761140Anyone know the release date??
>>9764659Isn't itty bitty pretties just another lol rip off
>>9765549basically, yeah. doesn't diminish the illlustrations though.
>>9761140Bland design and the two dolls that aren’t Barbie look too similar to each other, not worth $30 at all. Barbie fans really will buy trash because of brand indoctrination got dam
>>9763378Her belt studs are printed on instead of being real, a bit disappointing by OMG standards
>>9765783Dang, she's not as cute as the illustration. The colors are really different and make her look a bit generic.
check this out
>>9764642Hard for me to imagine what other clothes would go with her besides maybe more black and white-looking stuff probably. Really like Cheryl and the twins though. Holly's dress sucks. I still need to see if I can dye treat that.
>>9766249something looks off on this...
>>9766253it is her face.
>>9766254AHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA look at this fucking headwas there any gimmick where the real prince was inside the fursuit?
>>9766256Yep, the Beast head was a mask.
Indo seller claimed this Steffie is for an upcoming collector doll.Her face screening looks like a recolor of the Barbie rewind doll.
>>9765549To be considered a lol rip off you just need to be a small blind bag fashion doll, right?There's nothing wrong with that as long as the product is different enough and the quality is fine
>this fucking video kekhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwV0cUQcw3w
>>9766615Interesting, another rewind wave perhaps?
>>9766675I think the Angel High are so close to being good. I kind of want to get one just for the wings clip
>>9766253I had that Jasmine, >>9766254 that Aladdin,>>9766256 >>9766427 and both Beast and Belle when I was a kid. I remember being a bit annoyed I didn't get the blue costume Jasmine
>>9766925How many episodes till NTR storylines?
>>9766222God i would love to get these, guess my mom was right about this show being popular when she was a teen.
>>9766987I got a bunch of cups when they were 7.50 each. Don't expect the angels to go so low but at least I can pick the one I want directly. And those wings DO look nice.
Any advice for someone who has an interest in fashion and is new?
I just spent $40 on this Vera Wang Barbie basically only for the shoes. I need help.
>>9767265Yes, you definitely do need help. That doll is hideous and if you waited you probably would have been able to buy just the shoes off of eBay. Way to go, Mongoloid.
>>9767265Well, they are nice shoesIdk about $40 nice, but still nice
>>9767228Fashion or fashion dolls?
Another new Extra
>>9767585Just fashion in general. Is there a difference?
>>9767265Well, with how ebay sellers jack up the prices the shoes alone would've cost you like 25$ on their own. You could repurpose the body onto a doll with a cuter face.
>>9767659/fa/ is for fashion, this is the /toy/ board. This is only for dolls.
>>9767659A little, I wouldn't say most people here are experts on fashion, when it comes to fashion dolls it's more down to personal preference, there's certainly some fashion knowledge that goes into it like knowing materials, trends or recognizing designers, but I just don't know if we'll have the answers you're looking for
>>9767636She's cute (although not a big fan of the earrings). I liked the pictures of 15 with the purple and silver too. But a few cute dolls won't get me over my PTSD with this line from Extra 11 haha
>>9767725What happened with 11?
>>9767977The ugliest doll I have ever seen with my eyes.
>>9767636I think she's cuteI like her baby hair and that face sculptCaptcha: MmK0t
>>9768043... what is that lavender thing? Her Old English sheepdog?
>>9767659You could go to /fa/ if you want, but those guys just like circle jerking about themselves and their favourite designers. You'll just end up looking like them. If you want to do that, that's fine I guess. It's a starting point.Anyway I guess I could give you a tip that works for dressing dolls, (and yourself. and anything, really. It's just design 101) You can use the colour wheel.I think I picked up this picture from /fa/ or maybe it was from /ic/, i dunno. The most important part is the bottom half of this handy chart. Learn the colour wheel. Learn what colours together aesthetically and you'll make better outfits in no time. But it's only the start, you can play around with silhouettes, shapes and shadows later.>>9767636Take this doll for example. She's alright but her colours are pretty matchy-matchy, aren't they? I mean I do like the outfit, I'm pretty sure she's referencing the collab Mattel did with Moschino. Cute but... She's missing some colour. See how the white accessories pops against her clothes? She's just... Missing a little something.>>9765783Alright look at this doll. I don't really care much for her outfit to tell you the truth but that's not the point. Look at her colour story. May seem like a bunch of stuff together at first, but this was a very conscious decision. Look at my picture, look at the colour wheel. See where blue, pink, and yellow are on the wheel. Can you see how these colours help each other out? Her arm warmers (sleeves?) echo her leg warmers. She's wearing a lot, isn't she? But they're not clashing together offensively. Everything is working together.OK there's more to a good outfit than just colour obviously. I mean look at this... >>9768043Green and purple are complimentary but wtf were they thinking? Anyway, i'm sure you get the point.
>>9768043It's bad but it's not the worst thing I've ever seen
>>9768058I dont think the full pink look is too match-y in this case, the logo on the dress gives some break to the solid pink and the jacket helps break up the pattern, and the different texture helps bring more of a flow to the design rather than make it all mold together in a blob of pink, plus I think any additional colors would have taken away from the theme of that classic Barbie Brand pink they're going for
>>9767228Start with fashion history and work your way forward to the present
Do y'all have any tips for dealing with dust when displaying on open shelves? My shelves are all black and I can see dust literally within hours of dusting.
>>9766675>>9767128Nah they based their whole aesthetic and proportion on lol surprise, even the molding of some of clothes looks like lol pieces, while not all of the characters are rip off they clearly based some on lol characters, only the gimmick and artstyle are original
>>9768230carpets and moisture. but generally you just can't avoid it.
>>9768233I dig the artstyle
>>9768230You're stuck with regular dusting
Size comparison to the Rainbow High dolls
A couple threads back I recall posting something about the creative world body type, today I just got one in and pic related is how it looks like with a vintage skipper head. The body came mildly larger than I expected it to be, but I never saw these in retail or closeout stores so I had no real expectations as for the size of it. I may also need to trim down the joint and top of the neck to fit this head better, but I still wanted to show the results off ITT.
>>9769084>>9769088>>9769091>>9769107>"Let's resell wave 1 to the dumb goys all over again...">"...But with a piss-poor quality outfit at a $20 markup!">Bigger body, same flat baby face.>Gross painted on baby hairs FOR EVERYONE.>Long ape arms, squat torso.>Bimbo bedroom eyes.And this is the "best" mass market doll line on the market today.
>>9769545Just as I suspected in the past as what happened with the original bratz playlines: that LOL brand’s gone on for too long they’ve spent all their best ideas and the majority of their budget as far as clothes quality is concerned. The last few newest OMGs and especially some of the upcoming BTWs that got leaked are the worst offenders to date if you ask me. Not surprising to see MGA is betting on bratz nostalgia if at some point the LOL brand ends up tanking in sales and goes out to pasture for a while like how monster high did.
>>9769107That's... um... not a good look. The body is do stylized that it would need a super stylized head... which I guess it does have, but it's stylized differently than the body? I can't quite put my finger on it, but the original OMG works; the head is the same style and design as the body. The new one is just all out of whack.
>>9769545>>"Let's resell wave 1 to the dumb goys all over again..."Like Monster High is doing with reproductions? Like bratz with their reproductions too? These aren’t even the exact same designs they are variations. The original ghouls got three different variations of “basic” outfits (original, schools out, and picture day/new scaremester).>>"...But with a piss-poor quality outfit at a $20 markup!"Monster high haunt couture was a $50 markup>>Bigger body, same flat baby face.It’s kind of the signature of the brand>>Gross painted on baby hairs FOR EVERYONE.How are they gross? Doll customizers had been adding painted edges for years before they found their way into playline.>>Long ape arms, squat torso.Novi Stars look like that along with a few other brands>>Bimbo bedroom eyes.Bratz and Monster High have those too. >And this is the "best" mass market doll line on the market today.in terms of outfit design yes. I don’t have high hopes for the rebooted MH playline if the leaked images are accurate.
>>9769761I'm really starting to think there's an mga rep here
>>9769084There's something very ape-like about the proportions on the bigger one
>>9768262Most of my dolls I buy for display, only a handful I enjoy redressing and playing with
>>9770288>>9770291Actually kill yourself. You are beyond saving.
>>9770288No, go to the coomer thread for horny requests. But yes they know what they're doing, one of the girls came in lingerie
New lol omg doll. Not sure if it’s been posted here yet.
>>9770377She's cuteThere already were two cherry themed tween dolls and now there's a big one too
>>9769545>>9769691>>9769768Barbie gay best friend you're busted gtfo here faggette
>>9769721The proportions are off. The torso is too small for the arms and legs and the shoulders are too narrow. The proprotions of the OMGs are much more balanced.It's sad, the fierce face looks much better and they have actual knee joints. I really considered finally getting a LOL doll. The whacky proportions kill it though.
went and checked amazon for MH creeproductionsfound something much betterhttps://www.amazon.com/Monster-High-Stoner-Coloring-Book/dp/B098GJDHLH
>>9769107I figured the goal of these was to make them look like a fashion illustration with crazy stretched out proportions, but with an omg head. They probably don't want to mess with the face molds much to keep them looking consistent. I find them interesting because they are so strange, you can kind of see how they designed themselves into it over time.
Saw this Little Factory doll on Mandarake with a rooted mustache, gave me a good chuckle. Feel like I don't see rooted facial hair often.
>>9771365Wow. Really captures the homosexual janitor look.
>>9771424He's very special and I love him, if I had 80 dollars I'd buy him for the lulz
I can’t believe Monster High got away with this joke
>>9771660>Oi cunts, let's get freaky chic and fly
>>9771352Now that you shawn that sketch i feel like they based their whole line on hayden william aesthetic and since we know the artwork for this line was made by darko they didn't involved him at all and just stole his idea but since MGA stan hate him they will never admitted that nor defend him
>>9771660she said wetbacks
>>9771864I NEED that black + green one>>9771078LMAO what the hell is this
>>9771864>MGA stan hate himWhy the hate? What beef do they have going?
>>9772182Dude how can you see anything sexual in this? Are you one of those tranny freaks that think all girls have slumber parties with sexy lingerie, pillow fights and lesbian experimenting? If you see anything else than girls in cute cozy pajamas, it tells something about YOU
>>9772299I do agree that coomer brain is a real issue, but these are the same dolls that put the French poodle in lingerie, they know what they’re doing.
>>9772307They look like children? Does your lil pp get up at the slightest sliver of skin? Get help>>9772311Oh ew I missed that, that is icky. Same with the OMG tots I believe now that I think about it? Wasn't there a controversy about it
>>9772317Yeah there as some controversy because the color change on an LOL revealed skimpier outfits and one had hearts on her nipples, there was also controversy because the boy dolls had a penis
>>9772327Get help pedo
>>9772341Majority of the dolls posted don’t look like tweens or children though, and any of the ones that do aren’t NaNaNa level of sus
>>9772351I don’t know much modern Z/alpha lingo, sus is one of the only ones I picked up, idk what kik is
>>9772363Oh I'm not even the same anon you were talking to
New Furry dolls.
New Francie Reproduction to be announced
New Guo Pei doll coming this summer, with a hefty price tag, I can only hope this one is more fitting to the Haute Couture she's known for than the last doll.
Oh and a pic of that purple Extra doll showing off the top underneath, also nice to see the jacket and skirt aren't one piece.
>>9772369>>9772371I'm so tired of seeing llamas and sloths mass marketed on everything, why do companies have such a boner for them? I doubt they are genuinely that popular as meme animals.
>>9772388Companies just saw a lot of buzz for them and can't seem to let them go, they are very 2010s animals which is on brand for Mattel who is very stuck in the 2010s. Popular animals for 2020s are frogs and cows.
>>9772307>preteen girls with no pubescent features>"hot girls"please be a troll and not a real pedo...
>>9772637Stop giving it attention
>>9772369The hearts at the tip of their noses are unnecessary.
>>9772239Idk the whole story, but they're mad at him for the shortcomings of the 2018 collector Bratz (price they were $50 at the time, quality control some had misprinted faces and the overall fashion design most of it is MGA fault btw) apparently some influential figures (idk all their names but there's itsalexb, brooks, dazzlemalik.... but idk for sure) in the Bratz fandom by jealousy convince every one they were terrible and when Hayden tried to defend himself and blocked peoples Bratz fans were saying he was arrogant and unprofessional and till this day the majority of fans believe this narrative and clown him when he rant about how he was unfairly treated
Which Na!Na!Na! would you Surprise?
>>9772673That's unfortunate, super fans that worship companies are the worst
>>9755497So I'm not sure what to do, I will preface this by saying I'm not into dolls and that I bought it recently by accident. Part of me is telling me to sell it but another part is saying to keep it. Really not sure what to do. Would prefer her to have a good home regardless
>>9772722Im dumb, forgot picture
>>9772723>>9772722You're gonna want the BJD thread for this
>>9772726>>9772735Thank you anons, I had no idea what she is. I appreciate it
How do you answer this without sounding mad?
>>9772748Ignore it because who gives a shit
>>9772735>BJDA-anon.. Those joints..
>>9772723>>9772735anon no, they need to go vinyl doll thread in /jp/. that's not a bjd
>>9772851>>9772872I mostly just figured they'd know more about weeb dolls like that
>>9772371What a hateful shoe
>>9772711Plus some peoples in the doll comunity especially gay men think acting petty and like a hs mean girl is a personality trait
>>9772722>>9772723How do you “buy something by accident”? Was she in a big lot or something?
>>9766615>>red hair>>Steffi faceNIGHA DATS MIDGE
>>9769761Found the MGA stan. Calm down over your play line dolls dude. MGA will never be Mattel, Bratz will never have an iconic character like Barbie.Also, those Haunt Couture dolls were super cute and totally worth the price
>>9773421You are entitled to being a Mattel stan but please anon, do not play yourself like this. No they were not worth the price. You are just being a complete tool for a company. Love yourself.
I hated her design at first, but without the bangs it's completely transformed for me, I kinda love her now
me: “Ew I’ll never be into OMG dolls, they’re basically just slutty Bratz Babiez grown up.”*Gamma Babe Exists*me: “..fuck”
>>9773589the eyes are a smidge too far apart. gonna buy her anyway.
>>9773589Other way around for me
>>9773238You never impulse buy anything?
>>9773589She's super cute but I just can't get past the stupid nose band-aid.
>>9773589i feel like im the only one that still doesnt like the faces on the majority of rh dolls>>9773593giving insane fomo ive been meaning to buy her since that series came out
>>9773589She's so ugly lmao. Wtf happened to her face. Also it's so weird she randomly leaked
>>9770375>>9770377Okay shes adorable, I told myself I wasnt getting more omgs but I might have to pick her up
>>9773739Oh she’s an older doll? She’s like available so many places online
>>9774177It came out in November I think, MGA was always nice about re-releasing lines
>>9773421>Also, those Haunt Couture dolls were super cute and totally worth the price
>>9774190Oh we know.
>>9774481Show me pictures/proof where they weren’t. I’ll wait.
>>9774504I think about the Draculaura a lot in comparison with this older doll, somewhat comparable embroidered detailing while having an overall less exciting design. One could argue about inflation but $25 extra for a more boring doll?
>>9773421>call out MGA stan>shill for MattelStanning a company like it's a sport team is wierd and you a loser as a consumer
>>9774555Not only that anon but she was avaible everywhere the repro are $25 they could have easily released them for $30 in every major retailers and save shelves space for the reboot
I feel my omg collecting days are coming to a conclusion, is there any news of new doll lines coming out? mermaze didn't do it for me and the closest I got to buying rh was looking in the rh section for the robin sleepover doll a few times (didn't find lol)>>9774177I usually buy in store but thanks for pointing that out snagged her for sale on amazon
>>9774614Why do you have so many black dolls on your "wouldn't buy" categories? Are you some kind of Nazi scumbag?
>>9774555Yes but do a comparison on the accessories and the fashion. Collector Lala has a dress on that seems to resemble all the same fabric. While the new Lala has a bunch of intricate the detailed little pieces.
>>9774628…are you just dense or looking for reasons to be a little cunt?I counted, there’s 4 black dolls in all their “wouldn’t buy” lists. And yes, a lotOf those dolls are ugly so I completely agree.
>>9774614I like how you added Gamma Babe since you just bought it lol. Also, I like this list. It’s great, and it also shows me how I really am not into OMG dolls, but fucking Gamma Babe tugs at my space/scifi aesthetic.
For adult collectors of OMG dolls—How much do you enjoy opening the packaging?I for one hate opening dolls but I’m wondering if all the excess trash makes it more fun?
>>9774667Don't gaslight the fact that there's more than just 4 on the wouldn't buy categories. More like 18 of the 37. We've got eyes and can count. >those dolls are ugly so I completely agree.It's distressing to know that the racist assholes like you & the anon who made that tier list are still here in fashion doll general. Why haven't the mods b& you black doll hating Nazis?
>>9774673It's a joy compared to opening Rainbow High which feels like you need an engineering degree to get out without accidently cutting something you shouldn't
>>9774689... most OMG dolls are non white so they will always be a big amount of non white dolls in anybodies "wouldnt buy" list... doesnt mean that OP its a Nazi.Also not all dark skin dolls are black, some are clearly latina... if anything the racist its you for thinking they're black
>>9774673I dont hate opening the original surprise style boxes that much, the absolute worst of it was opening the giant Remix Super Surprise set, that was the biggest pain in my ass to deal with
>>9774670Good taste for the one you did like then lol I'll post pics when she gets here for you>>9774628No I am not a nazi, sjw astroturfer
>>9774664The majority of the new one is made of materials and techniques that are cost cutting, the embroidery alone on the old one jacks up the cost massively. The accessories are small plastic which costs only a few cents per doll. Probably the most costly part of her is the beret. I'd rather have few pieces that feel high quality than many smaller accessories that look and feel cheap, which is what she looks like.
>>9774839>will always be a big amount of non white dolls in anybodies "wouldnt buy" listWow, that's racist. Are you even aware of the words you are typing is deeply offensive to everybody besides yourself, or are you just doing this "4 teh lulz." Either way. Get back to /pol/.>not all dark skin dolls are blackAh yes, the great white savior complex of "We can fix them if they act like us." How well did that work with the first peoples up here in Canada? Stop race shaming and forcing your whiteness on others, douchebag. Let black people be black people for God sakes.
>>9774925>>9774882I am latam hispanic
>>9774933>I am latam hispanicSame vibe as pic rel.
Stop responding to obvious bait posts
>>9774925Am a fucking beaner you retard
>>9774610pretty sure that drac was exclusive to amazon. but she wasn't limited and was restocked several times, which was nice
>>9774673I love and adore opening well-designed packages! OMG are mostly well-designed, though not as good as the best MH and EAH ones. RH packages on the other hand are so goddamn awful to open that the experience of opening them actually made me like the dolls less.
>>9775064The Shadow High packaging was a huge improvement so I hope they stick that style.
Thoughts on the Addison Rae dolls? Am curious as to how a conventionally attractive and skinny rich girl gets to make a body positive doll of herself but what do I know... altho i feel like the quality of these wont be good or just meh.Am surprise they still make dolls of celebs... makes me think of the Cardi B dolls that never released.
>>9775266>inspired by BODY POSITIVITYOh my god, fucking how
>>9775266Idk who she is so I'm pretty indifferent but I don't expect anything special
>>9775266>literally who >Google >wealthy "Tiktok personality"If Cardi can't successfully put out a doll then I dont expect an influencer to successfully put out a doll
>>9775278She seem to have at least made a physical doll prototype unlike Cardi B who took pre orders sold put and still hasnt deliver
>/doll/ finally gets to me.>Desperately want this doll.>Equivalent $52USD to buy her in Australia.
>>9775345They r supposed to come out sometime this month or early june, just hold on for a lil longer
>>9774555but she's got a new hat
>>9775342Jesus Christ, why do all celebrity dolls look absolutely horrendous?
>>9774915The fabric purse is the mostly costly actually
>>9774689…what the fuck. I have two EAH dolls left in my collection, Wanna guess who they are? Yes, the only two black dolls the released.I just..you..uhg nevermuns you’re a troll
>>9775064they have really cute fashions and styles but idk what is it about them I just can’t get into them. Actually Ykno what I think it’s probably because of their size. They’re too much like fashion baby dolls.
>>9776706I realized that halfway through unfortunately…
The Monster High creepros are more accurate re-releases then Original Favorites, but they’re not 100% recreations, here are the differences I’ve spotted;Draculaura:- pink hair streaks are saran rather than Kanekalon - eyes printed bigger and closer together- lipstick is a shade lighter- buttons on vest are farther apartFrankie- hair bump is fuller- forehead slightly bigger- skin is a brighter shade of mint green- eyes printed closer togetherClawdeen:- clawed hands instead of human hands (needed change since the human hands were an error)- more glitter eyeshadow on browbone- slightly longer hair- eyes printed closer together and angled downLagoona:- more blue streaks in hair- different texture of hair, shinier and smoother- stitching on shorts altered slightly- gold plastic (for jewelry) shinier and more pearlescent- forward-facing gaze instead of wall-eyed- fishbowl purse a more vivid shade of blue Most of these changes are objective improvements though (Lagoona’s face is way better than her classic doll) and there is NO GLUE inside the heads!
>>9775266>Ages 6 and up>Try me hole over the doll's crotchGross.
>>9776831>Frankie>eyes printed closer togetherI have an Original Favorites Frankie, and it's one of my favorites, but depending on how much less dead a Creeproduction Frankie looks in person, I might have to get one.>Lagoona>forward-facing gaze instead of wall-eyedI have zero Lagoonas and I'm looking forward to this. A Freshwater Lagoona with eye wonk might be funny though.
So, I’ve not been into RH but this SH doll is totally gorgeous..but..then..do I see molded baby hairs on her forehead?
>>9776691Yet they're so basic especially frankie's>>9776831I disagree for lagoona the old one is better, she has that fish look that's very on theme
>>9776984>I disagree for lagoona the old one is better, she has that fish look that's very on themeComparing them side by side the new Lagoona looks more like her artwork/animation model
I figure this isn't worth posting in bst, but would anyone be interested in an original Robecca? Her box is a little jacked up, but she looks perfect otherwise. I got her about 5 years ago and I didn't love her like I thought I would.
>>9777169You could make a lot more profit selling it on eBay or mercari
>>9776957Yes she has molded baby hairs
>>9776957Yes, but she’s the best doll they’ve made other than Jett so you should get her.
>>9777442>>9777500Ok thanks anons, I just saw their newest set of RH dolls and like half of them have the molded baby hairs..even one of the blondes and like @_@ ohhkBut yes she gives me total Catty Noir vibes and I loooove super dark skinned dolls so I may have to end up getting her. Will only RH/SH clothes fit her?
>>9777500>>looks up JettEw no, hard pass.
>>9777656Most Barbie clothes should fit, tops might be too big but pants and skirts should be good, i think some OMG clothes fit them too
>>9776831Thank you for your autism MH-anon <3 very interestingI started doll collecting at RH, but have watched MH repaint videos for ages, I just never got into them when they were originally on shelves. I kind of want to get them, but on the other hand I would just like base bodies blank off Aliexpress. I feel like I already have way too many dolls to collect with RH and OMG... even though I'm not even a completionist. I don't wanna end up like xCanadiensis lolDo the new MH dolls come with stands btw?
>>9777683I’m not 100% certain on the new ones having stands but every single MH doll in the past came with stands so I would suspect the new ones to as well
>>9777802The MH repros come with everything the original core 4 did including brushes, doll stands, and diaries.The brushes and stands are in the original colors as well, although Lagoona’s stand is less pearlescent than the original and the stands are the newer more secure + rod rather than T rods.The dolls also have plastic peg hips instead of strung elastic hips, and the arm pegs are the new thicker design introduced in the reboot but still with the original body shape.It’s not a 100% exact reproduction they did make changes, but they are good changes. As much as the original monster high girls are solid designs, certain aspects of them definitely didn’t age well like the glue in the head that leaked out over time, misaligned wall-eyed faces, loose arm pegs, and hips that weakened over time because the elastic was too stressed.But when you first release a product to market you don’t always know which engineering issues you’re going to need to prioritize, so it’s just something that happens over the lifetime of a product seeing how it is played with.
I was into Monster High back in 2013 and when I moved, I just threw them all in a box and forgot about them...I'm a millionaire now right? How many bitcoins?For real though, they're in pretty good condition, just been in a box for a long time. Seems like now would be a good time to sell.
>>9778283You could probably get some decent money from eBay
Sorry for the annoying identify this post, but anyone happen to identify this Bratz? Stumbled upon her on the thrift store, and had to get her since she's clothed and has shoes and a BRACELET (a miracle).
>>9778367Also found these Lundby bathroom things for 3€! I'm the anon who found the house earlier in a previous thread
>>9778381Also current state of the house! Veeeery loosely related to fashion dolls but uuuh you can put clothes on the official Lundby dolls! That counts right
>>9778408love that hanging chair
>>9778412Thanks!! I made it myself hehe
>>9778408That's really cute, anon
>>9778283I thought going through this box I'd fall back in love with them but damn, we've come a long way in fashion dolls. They are so thin and have the weirdest neck joints. They fashions are creative and fun and all the different molds are admirable, but you can really tell they had to cheap out on everything else. I'm only keeping original Catty Noir, original Catherine De Mew and the wide release Sarah Scream. Glad I took a look at these though so I won't be tempted by the new releases.
>>9778283Uhhhh you just threw them in a box? @_@ Be careful some doll clothes stain the dolls over time
>>9778496Yesssss Catty is god tier, good choice
Why does Lila’s obi have 2 bows? At least if it had only one it would’ve been reversible, this was a dumb design choice
>>9778825from what doll is this? google didn't help
>>9778876Not that anon but Lila Yamamoto from the new Rainbow High series, presumably
>>9778408The little fireplace room is so cute.
>>9778787Ok I will let 2015 me know >>9778790Catty walked so Shanelle could run
>>9778825Wait, so the people making up their own reality about how the Obi isn't actually in front, you turn it around (even though these dolls need stands) were full of shit? Next you'll tell me everyone insisting she is "multicultural" because she has a Chinese top were wrong too kek
Should I bite? Was tempted to get her Margot or Hali. Actually they're all on sale but not sure who I'd want to get most.
I dearly love Monster and Ever After High, but have zero interest in Rainbow High or LOL or really any other doll lineI wish there were more franchises like Monster High, creative and, more importantly, well-done
>>9779285Me too.It’s sad that no one has come close to capturing the magic of those brands. Even Mattel can’t seem to make it work again.
>>9779285>I dearly love Monster and Ever After High, but have zero interest in Rainbow High or LOL or really any other doll line>I wish there were more franchises like Monster High, creative and, more importantly, well-doneMonster high was also my gateway into doll collecting, but honestly? LOL OMG and rainbow high have better quality and more detailed fashions (made of varying materials) than Monster High did, even at its peak.Monster high are good character dolls, but they aren’t really fashion dolls in the sense of “taking contemporary fashion trends and shrinking them down to play scale”.Also we literally JUST got high quality reproductions of the first 4 MH dolls that are 98% identical to the original releases, so shut the fuck up.
Saw a Mattel shill page post about these new playlines for Barbie, why did I instantly think these were from the Steffie Love or Dream Ella clones at first
>>9779285same. i miss eah as well, those dolls were beautiful.
>>9779345I can't believe there are people in this crazy world who dislike dolls that have articulation.
>>9779255restyled harper is gorgeous
>>9779345I hate painted on swimsuits so much
>>9779366Are there actually people like that or is it just the penny pinching corporate overlords refusing to pay an extra few cents per doll for the fancy joints?
>>9779366I dont think there is really such a thing, I think those dolls main demographic is very small children
>>9779255just ordered her. hope the skin shines as nice as it does in the pictures.
>>9779558the cheap swim dolls are legit for kids to play with in the tub or at the beach
>>9779566They don't even like hands curled to grip objects for some reason, hence those rings on everything that slide on the hands. They also seem to hate hands painted with gloves, they want bare skin hands even if the character wears gloves, but they might accept those awful oven mitts that slide on over.
>>9779712For real, who? I wanna know what they get out of it. All I can imagine are fetishists who are into the idea of a person turning into an immobile doll or something. I can't imagine any other appeal in such a rigid pose.
>>9779737Uniformity. See those oven mitts in the OP? It looks terrible but it's what the collectors want. Things that can't blend into their house-filling hoarder collections don't meet their approval. Then when they die their family gets to toss most of it in the trash or part it off to Goodwill where it'll be soiled during processing & sold for nothing to kids who will probably tear them up in short order.The alternative is 1:6 where the toys cost as much as a home appliance because of artificial inflation, not any real production costs, because if a moron is willing to pay $300 for a $30 toy will you only charge $30?
>>9779712>>9779737>>9779752This feels like over-thinking, they're literally just dolls for small children to play with in the tub, parents aren't typically going to get pricey fully articulated well dressed dolls for their dumbass kid to dunk in the mud and immediately ruin.
>>9779773It's not. Doll collectors despise anything that doesn't mesh with the standard design. No one brought up kids until you did. They're not the ones who complain and get these features excluded. Typical /toy/ reading comprehension at work though.
>>9779776>No one brought up kids until you did>>9779684>>9779575
>>9779366>>9779566>>9779712>>9779737>>9779752It's literally just because majority of dolls are made with the main demographic, children, in mind, there's no secret cult of doll collectors against articulation or bended hands, it's literally just design yielding to the same parents who bitched when their 5 year old kids MH dolls hand pops out and they don't have two braincells to rub together and figure out they could pop it right back in.
Bit the bullet and bought Robin Sterling and the 80s rock girl from Amazon sale, 40€ for each (including shipping) is ok imo. I just feel kinda bad bc these are the first non-mainline RH dolls I have and my collection just keeps expanding I hate being such a fuckin consooooomer. Not gonna buy all of the series 4 girls tho (I have all of the previous main series dolls).
>>9779799Solid choices though, really pretty dolls
I have an online friend who really likes Monster High (Robecca Steam in his favorite) but he refuses to touch the dolls because “they barely look anything like the characters in the artwork” and “Their faces are creepy and synthetic hair has a really weird gross texture”.What is he on about??? I don’t understand how you can be a fan of a franchise created to sell dolls, while hating the actual dolls.
>>9779285I’m there with you anon.Do you think you’re less likely to support MGA in general? Because—that’s how I feel. I’ve always felt like it was a horrible company.
>>9780238Not to be mean or anything but is he autistic? That could explain it
>>9780249>Do you think you’re less likely to support MGA in general? Because—that’s how I feel. I’ve always felt like it was a horrible company.Not that anon, but do you really think corporations are your friend?MGA is not perfect, they do deliberately court controversy with provocative and sometimes age-inappropriate imagery, that is true. But Mattel has sacrificed appealing trendy doll designs for virtue signaling bullshit (fat amputee dolls with vitiligo). MGA is the lesser of two evils right now because at least their doll lines reflect real fashion trends with detailed fashions made of luxe materials, Mattel isn’t doing that and hasn’t since 2015.I go where the good designs are, simple as.I gave my money to Mattel until 2016 when MH/EAH quality went down the gutter. Then in 2019 MGA launched OMG, a doll line with the same attention to detail and theme that I had loved about monster high.I didn’t like the first few waves of rainbow high, but this wave has really caught my eye because they’ve seriously ramped up the visual punch. (I wanna buy Meenah, Lila AND Jewel)If the quality of LOL OMG goes down in the near future (because of the increase in unarticulated budget dolls) I will drop it. If Monster High G3 turns out to have good designs soft hair and full articulation, I will support it.That is how every doll collector should choose their purchases; not out of blind loyalty to a brand or company, but looking at individual products for effort in design, articulation, detail, and materials.Do not expect anything from a manufacturer after the doll leaves the factory, and I promise you’ll have a much better time cherishing out the dolls you actually want.
>>9780315Also beyond design and modern appeal of the dolls, let's not act like Mattel has a squeaky clean reputation, with business, fans, or designers
>>9780238He probably likes the idea behind them and the art style used in the promotional materials, on the boxes, etc, maybe the cartoons but not the dolls themselves or even dolls in generalThe actual dolls do look different than the illustrations on the boxes
>>9779223It's Jet that walked so Catty could run
I have a bunch of frabric clothes that seems to be staining my dolls. I manage to get rid of the stains, but I don't want to deal with it again.Any tips on what I can do to treat these clothes or dolls to prevent staining? Stains seem to mostly came from blue jeans, black, and red clothes.
>>9780315>virtue signaling bullshitYou mean anything that isn't the aryan ideal? Fuck off. The real world doesn't abide by your delusions. You wanna talk REAL virtue signaling? Alice Cooper's "women shouldn't be abused" songs, as if he gives a shit about women.
>>9780866I soaked my dark doll clothes on Vanish overnight (probably best to separate by color). Seemed to work quite well, a TON of color came out, didn't even fade the clothes.
>>9778887Thanks anon! Just googled and she's very cute, despite the dumb obi.
>>9780866I was thinking of throwing all my dark dolly clothes in a bag and washing them on hot a couple times, I assume it happens because the dyes aren't "set" because they were cheaply/poorly dyed. Might ruin them but would rather ruin them or have them a bit faded than have them ruin a doll.
>>9780896>VanishMisread that as "varnish" and I was confused as to why you didn't know how the clothes were staining the dolls
>>9781045Lmao, would not recommend that!
>>9756266>>9756266>>9756288>>9756306>>9756340Thanks again to (you) and anyone else who ever discussed Licca in these threads. My Castle doll arrived today and I'm so obsessed with her. I got her off Mercari thru Buyee and I also ordered the glasses and shoes from Mercari separately just so I'd be sure I'd have shoes to fit her. I probably paid more for her than I needed to but I felt like she had the perfect hair and face combination for me. If I get her a friend I'll probably pick one of the least expensive ones, but I am glad that I spent more on the one that I was really in love with. She's perfect. She's wearing Rainbow High for now I've gotta dig up other doll clothes from boxes in closests to see what else I have that will fit her.
>>9781185She’s so cute, glad you love her! I’m trying to not buy too many because the shipping fees are rough but I definitely have been thinking of getting another Licca soon, the #Licca line has a few cute ones
>>9781185She's precious, I love the glasses with that face! That hair color/style was a great choice, I absolutely adore the wavy hair textures with the more natural colors, it really makes me feel like they're more like regular young ladies dressing up and going out, unlike the popular western lines which are all fashion models. Would love to see more pics if you settle on a favorite outfit or get her a pal.
>>9781041Do cold it will lock the color in
New budget OMG dolls coming
>>9781742I need that little red sweater.
>>9778408fuck me that hanging chair is on point, is that a storage drawer? that is really well designed
>>9781742Unpopular opinion but i dont think lol needed main characters nor an ongoing plot it doesn't go well with how the dolls are marketed, they should have done multiple stand alone stories within the lol world with random selection of characters to promote the dolls on the shelves
I was really hoping that I would like the new Ultimate Celebration Snow White doll but I'm eh on her.
