So those who follow me on DA or FB should be aware of my recent obsession with collecting Disney dolls, especially those limited edition designer dolls.
Because I started out reeeeeeally late collecting them (as usual T_____T), I’ve had to buy most of them off “scalpers” on Ebay (ie: people who buy these dolls initially with the intention of re-selling them at 2-3x the original price, sometimes even more!).
I’ve actually always been a Disney fan since I was really little. And I loved playing with barbies too! My favourite Disney princess was surely Ariel, so my favourite barbie doll (who I took virtually everywhere with me) was naturally the one I could own that looked the MOST like her (they looked really similar, except my barbie had brown hair and green eyes ^^”).
Aaaaaanyway, I’ve luckily been able to buy all the sets/dolls I’ve really wanted (at exuberant prices >.<) from Ebay scalpers and some of them have already arrived so I’ve decided to set an afternoon aside to snap some pics of them to share with you guys ;).
I’m planning to keep all my designer/limited edition dolls in their original packaging/box to preserve their value (and to prevent dust and oily hands from getting all over them). I did, however, acquire 2 sets of the Ariel and Eric Fairytale Designer Collection Dolls so I could fortunately de-box one set.
Anyway, here are the photos of what I have so far!
I’ve purchased these and they are still on the way!!! Hopefully they’ll be here next week and then I can snap some pics of them to share with you ^___^ I can’t wait to see them in person!
And I also got a bunch of other Disney dolls (which are not designer editions, so are not as expensive, but are a must-have for any serious Disney doll collector in my opinion :P). I couldn’t be bothered taking separate pics of them (there are so many!) so I’ve decided to do couple/group shots! If you’d like to see one individually/in particular, please leave a comment below/flick me a message, and I’m more than happy to do that for you ^^
I was able to secure a pre-order for the entire set of the second installment of the Disney Fairytale Designer Collection (it must have sold out within 5-10min on the online Disney store):
Aren’t they absolutely divine?! I love, love, LOVE them SOOOO much! My hobby funds took a large hit though, since just the shipping cost alone was about $380NZD already! And then I’d have to pay the silly customs fee of about $300NZD? or maybe more? so silly -.-
I’ve also got the limited edition 17″ Aurora Doll (she’s so gorgeous! Aurora is my second favourite Disney princess ;)) coming in soon.
She’s getting released on October the 7th PST :3 and so are limited edition Prince Phillip, Aurora in her blue dress (I prefer pink though :P) and Maleficent dolls (just saw their photos this morning!)! So I’m terribly excited! I’d LOVE to be able to buy Princess Aurora in her blue dress and Prince Phillip (not a big fan of Maleficent, so I’m gonna give her a miss), so I’ll be camping on the online Disney store on the day of release, 12am PST sharp!!!!!!
Wow, I’m getting all excited and tachycardic just writing this all out! hahahahaha x3 (geeek ~)
ANYway, hope you’ve enjoyed this post! I don’t know many Disney Doll fans/collectors :< and I’m feeling rather lonely…. so if you love them/collect them too, please feel free to comment below/get in touch with me/add me on facebook etc because I’d LOVE to (as Sims 4 would say) “enthuse over our interests” x3
I’ll update with more pics after I receive Snow white/Rapunzel sets/Eric/Zarina/Aurora/Phillip/Designer Fairytale Collecton set 2 etc
