Upon arrival the roommate rejoiced and declared he needed to be on display (We have a slight obsession with Jeffery Hunter in our house). He's protecting our apartment from his spot on the tv for the moment.

Continued apartment arranging/cleaning, have been put on call-in status for jury duty ( \o/ ) and bought insurance on wednesday. Exciting exciting.

Best thing about action figures is that they're bendy by default.

YAY DOLLIES!

Oh god I love how they have airquotes around "dance" and "play". IMAGINATIONS, KIDS, "IMAGINATIONS".


That is sad that Blondie is too dark for #1. I think maybe rebody now for the bendy and look into getting a different bendy body in the near future?

I KNOW. The packaging is hilarious. Oh man 90's barbies how i love thee.

Probably. I'm tempted to go run to target and pick up the lightest Liv dolly. But I don't think I want One quite that short.

LIV is very, very short. (Also very pretty in her own right.)

I can take a quick snap of Pike-One-Cait for comparison of Playmates-Bendy Barbie-LIV?

ohhhhhhhh shiny. Scotland barbie is that annoying mostly pale but not palest which is the trouble of late. I'm going to have to scour for more pictures of the dancing princesses dollies, I feel this is getting closer!

She issssss And omg i'm getting mindfucked with different pictures of her skintone. But I think she might be pale enough and I just found her for 14 and and and /dolly lust.

I am confuuuuused as well because she is apparently the same tone as Hottie Ken but lighter than Top Model Summer??? Except Summer is lighter than Hottie Ken what is this nonsense?

I'm seriously thinking there must be two version of her or something. sklfdsdlkfjsdlkfj

Could be different plastics from different places. Outside of that, I've got nothin'. (A lie, perhaps. Mistress of Ceremonies is definitely pale enough for Scotland (though I think a little too pale of Queen of Hearts*, with the caveat that she feels delicate enough that you sometimes think she'll fall apart if you breathe on her wrong.)


*NOT THAT I AM COMPLAINING)

From: [identity profile] theoreticalpixy.livejournal.com
Quite possibly. I think there are two versions of her one bendy and one non so that might be it??? Idk it's weird. (Noting. Scotland is at least v. v. close to Queen of Hearts going of Tara's pics, I need to just bite the bullet and get one I think. Oh dolly bodies. y so troublesome?)

IIRC her Cait is a Scotland, and so you might be able to do a vicarious comparison in the pics with Cait&Colt/Scotland&Summer.

(Queen of Hearts, incidentally, is not quite as pale as Basics #12, but is close enough for a body-match.)

Yes it is, she only has a couple pics of her but this (http://www.flickr.com/photos/taraljc/4673778234/in/set-72157623738195796/) seems to indicate QoH and Scotland are pretty close on their paleness level.

(hmmmmmm)

Scotland looks like she has more of a peaches & cream thing going on than QoH, who has definite ... not orange, but warmer undertones to her vinyl. Which is not actually helpful as re: Edeline's skintone. (The Asian-looking 12-dancing-princesses doll with the purple eyes may also yield a suitable bendy body?)

That's a pretty good way to put it, Scotland's pretty peachy, with a tiny bit of yellow going on. (I was just looking at her, she seems pretty consistently paler)

Mattel should reveal the number of the plastic and vinyls they use in all their dolls, and some people who are not us should make a wiki with this information so that we do not have to rely on flickr's hit-or-miss photos. See also the woman whose digicam settings made the bendy fashionista bodies look like a match for QoH.

Yes this. I would worship whoever did it too. Lighting makes a world of difference and oh how weird it is to tell sometimes and when everyone is futzing with lighting it makes it ridiculous. Ughhhh I got one of those and yeah, no. So tan! She did match one my other girlies very nicely though.

I found THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/16303132@N00/4623773911/in/photostream/) and now there is a Mistress of Ceremonies on her way to me.

Dood, also, Mistress is freakishly pretty and I am a little attached to mine, I have taken pix of her rebodied self to see but IDK whether I will actually sell her.

I am trying to tell myself that I should sell the clothes at least but seriously so pretteh I don't know if it will happen.

I'm actually probably going to buy her clothes separately cause I like them and cause I want to do a Kirk/Chapel photoshoot with Chapel in a tux, because of [livejournal.com profile] possibly_thrice, and 'cause I got a nude doll. (I have also been trawling ebay for Blythes and keep telling myself that that habit can damned well wait until I have a retirement fund.)

They're so prettehhhhh, I splurged for clothed they will so get used. Oooo hot. (Blythessss. I've actually gone backwards in dollies $$ wise it was blythes then pullips(and still blythe...) and now its mostly barbie. Blythes are SO GORGE but oh the expense. I tend to search for months and months before I buy one because of it. I have 6 and I started buying 4 and half years ago.)

I kindof wish I had waited to get clothed because PRETTEH but, ah. The nude one had cheap shipping! (I refuse to pay $10 for shipping for one doll, especially when they fit in the $7 flat rate box. Also people who put up auctions for 99ยข/no reserve and then charge $40 shipping within the continental US suck and this practice should be against the TOS.)

Blythe would make an awesome humanoid alien princess for Away Mission Photoshoots. HER EYES CHANGE COLOR. And she has lots and lots of clothes.

Yay cheap shipping! (I hear you, shipping charges are redonk sometimes and it is maddening when they try to pull crap like that. So not cool. Shipping is Not. That. Expense. for light little dollies)

...okies that might need to be done. THE EYES ARE SO FUN. Yes, oh yes, I love blythe clothes they're rather fantastic. They're made really well.

I accidentally bid on one that did not list the shipping in the shipping place, but in the description, and I freaked out and flailed around (it was for a Mulder/Scully X-Files set, which I want anyway but NOT FOR $40 SHIPPING, and which is not even going for $40 right now jeeze) but was able to withdraw my bid on a basis of "entered wrong bid amount" and then "forgot" to re-enter the "right" bid. Because the seller is obvs a jerk like that.

Ohhh yikes. Yay for getting out of it though! Because oh dear, things like that are ten kinds of not awesome. I'm always so paranoid as I read listings.

Sounds about right. They could throw a feast or something and try to woo him and PIke can be clueless and One will glare a lot and then drag him back to the ship.

Lame. Though wahoo for having Kringle to ease the pain

I don't have that much left. Also unemployed.
