A Monstrous Decision: Twyla!

Meet Twyla!dsc05496

I almost postponed posting again, busy with year-end reports in the office.  Anyway, yes I chose Twyla because I liked the color combination, my favorite shades!  Reading her profile is like I’m reading my own!

She stands only 9.5″ unlike the other 3 MH that I have.  Of course, she’s just 14 years old!  Carefully position her at certain angle and she can very well stand on her own, but in the photo below I was in a hurry I used blue tack.  I didn’t like the stand she came with because it’s leaning backward.  I love her shoes, her tattoo and tutu skirt, I don’t like the feel of her hair, it’s sticky! 

My other 3 Monster High Dolls are thrift store items.  Luckily, they all have their limbs intact and original clothes on.  Bought them on separate year.

Nefera De Nile is the most beautiful and tallest among the 4 and my first MH doll.  She stands 11″ and she also has sticky hair!

Lagoona Blue, she stands 10.5″ with sticky hair too!

Cleo De Nile stands 10.5″ and has a soft manageable hair, alas, it’s not sticky like the first 3!

Side note,  I could have bought Clawdeen Wolf, the Ghouls Alive version if it weren’t for the exposed scalp that has what seems like an incision 😦  across her forehead.  Maybe if they lower again the price to maybe Php300.00 why not!

Next in line, Ari!

A Monstrous Decision

Wow! The holidays went by so fast, the New Year celebration is over, and I have not had a post for that.  Anywayz, I can always go back in time, make it a delayed post, whatever.

Two weeks ago I had the chance to make a short trip at Toys R’ Us,  I was trying hard not to, but the child in me kept cheering Go! Go! Go!  It happens when I don’t feel OK.   I have no plans of buying anything, just want to know what’s new, I didn’t find anything amusing in the Barbie world.  However, I did saw a few Monster High Dolls on sale for 70% off!   That’s Php500.00 to be exact.  I am not a big fan of MH, but I must say there are quite a few that has caught my fancy in the past but never really keen on getting one.  When MH first came out in the market, I have these feelings they were the monsterized version of…Bratz!  But after a while, yeah, they have their own identity to boot.  But I also love Bratz (coming soon here).

So there I was, amazed at the Monsters in front of me, I began to check each and every box on the shelf, 3 dolls appealed to me.  I was talking to myself “don’t buy, no, don’t touch, no”  LOL!

I first saw Ghoulia Yelps, I liked her for the blue tresses, simple, with eyeglasses and what looked like a child’s teether!

Then there’s Twyla, again the hair attracts me, the over all color combination and her outfit, I love it!

And last, Clawdeen Wolf!  I was amused by this one because she have sleep eyes, and she howls! 

After lining them up eye level on the shelf, I asked myself, should I buy one?  After all, I still have not gotten a Christmas gift for myself.  If I buy,  which one should I get?  I have to restrict myself and stick to my budget, I can’t afford all 3 anyway.

Indeed a monstrous decision to make!
