“Toys That Refuse to Conform!”

I thought I was over and done with buying dolls.  After my mom died in 2013, I started to lessen my trips to thrift stores, was able to curb the urge to buy like I used to.  Yes, every now and then I yield, but unlike before, now I am more discerning.   So, I’m not yet totally…cured! LOL!

Anyway, I stumbled upon a YouTube video of Andrea B. Divisoria shopping and haul! I got curious so I watched her video.  And there, one store they went to, she held up a box of Begoth Doll Fiona Fatale! My pupils suddenly dilated!  Checking the date, she posted it only a week before I saw it, there’s a possibility that the doll is still there, after all, she didn’t buy it.  There’s no info where in 168 Mall it is located, heck, not even a store sign!  So I replayed the video over and over again, took mental note of the area, a few signs, and at the end of her trip a flash of Soler Wing.  The old wing being the Sta. Elena Street.  After 2 weeks I finally decided to go, it was like treasure hunting! 168 Mall is a huge maze and its my first time there.  After scouring the entire toy section, I felt exasperated, I couldn’t find the store! I decided to give up and just went downstairs to window shop at the clothes section.  Lo and behold!  The store with no name!  

Yes, Fiona is still there but I decided to buy Devastatia.  

  So now I have 3 Begoths Doll!

 There were 2 Devastatia, I chose this one even though her box is not in good condition, the doll even has spots on her face which I’m not sure would come off.

But it did came off with one swipe!  The other doll has better packaging condition, but I noticed the color of her head is not the same as her body, its yellowish!  Anyway, I’m contented with my pick.

Christmas Doll Gift….from myself!

I haven’t been posting for sometime.  My days since the onset of holidays have been mostly wasted on traffic going home from the office.  Haven’t the time to make an after office stroll in the mall.  Anyway, the much anticipated vacation finally came and I was able to appease my tired weary self by buying a cheap doll.  Well she’s not really that cheap.  I paid Php329.75 so that’s about $7.37, I said cheap because she’s not a regular playline doll that has any distinct brand name like that of Mattel to Barbie, Spinmaster to Liv, etc. that releases new series every time and yet still maintain the character of their dolls.

This one is from Shiner Toys, made in China.  She’s about same size as Barbie’s, and she’s called ZOMBIE PRINCESS!  There were at least 6 types or models I think.  They’re supposedly the Zombie counterpart of the Disney Princess (I think but not indicated in the box) so here are the pics.

I have not deboxed her yet, so I do not know how her body looks like.  I assumed she’s the counterpart of Rapunzel having that type of hairstyle.  I chose this one because the color match ups made her looked collectible and expensive, and violet is my fave color.  The stitches on both sides of her mouth which I found to be simple but cute, the eyes made of synthetic glass plastic.  Next, I shall post her out of the box, plus those other zombie dolls.

GOTH DOLLS…etc.

Before, Goth themed dolls are rarely sold in the Philippines.  I was lucky to have found at least two at Toys R’ Us a few years ago, they were on sale.  Here’s the Bleeding Edge Dolls and a few Halloween themed Dolls.
