Add me to the list of people untracking the Monster High tag. People on both sides of this are acting like assholes and clogging up the tag with their opinions instead of a) having an adult discussion, or b) taking the conversation to Youtube/Kittesmama’s parents themselves and actually possibly changing something (if they were offended), instead of playing the White Knight for either Kittiesmama or against racism on tumblr to make themselves feel just.
I have a theory about why, when you brush or wash a Swim Class Rochelle or ILS Cleo de Nile hair “falls out.” In my experience, the hair that falls out isn’t actually long enough to have ever been rooted in the head. Both are heavily, heavily glued — I think they aren’t being brushed out after the rooting process, so loose hair that ends up tangled in with the rooted hair during the rooting process are being basically glued to the rest of the hair.
I’ve washed and brushed both of these dolls, and had no problem with hair “falling out” after the initial excess hair is pulled or washed off. They seem to be firmly rooted. So I don’t think anyone needs to freak out if you get some excess hair!
lol- Robecca, Jackson, Draculaura, InvisiBilly, Jane Boolittle, Hell- Frankie can even join since her pops was a literary Monster. *nods*
I’m gonna do it.
*RIPS OFF SHIRT*
I’m gonna draw the thing.
I’ve been asked before why my American Girl doll collection has dolls of all different skin tones when I’m white. My answer is always this: “a doll doesn’t have to look like me in order for me to connect with it and its story.” Hopefully others feel the same way I do
I feel much like this: I don’t have to resemble a doll to find it beautiful. My family has reacted oddly to me having dolls of different skin tones, but I buy a doll because I find it attractive, not because it’s some sort of reflection of me or who I want to be.
This weekend was the great makeover weekend. Everyone got new lipstick in more interesting colors, and Lagoona got some more freckles.

I had a mental breakdown this morning, so I decided to stay home and work on my first MH repaint. so this is the face blush, I used purple and lavender for the eyes, red and pink for the lips and white and pink for cheek bones and nose (yep, I have to blush the nose, because there’s this irremovable stain on it, notice how the red of the nose seems kind of different?)
Blushing is really fun and also tear consuming, but this is like the first time succeeding in blushing without messing up (or maybe because usually I use knock off dolls, but idk).
for the next step I don’t know which one to work on first, painting the face or body blushing (suggestion anyone?)
and critiques are highly appreciated ;)
Wow, this looks awesome!
(I’m also sorry to hear about the breakdown and hope you are feeling better!)
