So… I got my 2017 SDCC Monster High dolls today! This year’s exclusive stars Cleo and Ghoulia! I ordered mine from an ebay reseller I usually buy my rarer Monster High dolls from.
There was a time when I’d compulsively collect every single Monster High release, and I’d buy at least 3-4x of each type so that I can keep the ones with the best face up, hair or box condition etc (honestly, Mattel’s quality control can be pretty atrocious, and it’s become worse since the revamp… the wonk on some of those faces T^T)
Anyway, pics time!
They’re both really pretty, and thank god there’s no obvious eye wonk or paint issues – it’s always a bit of a gamble with these dolls. I think my favourite out of the two is Cleo, I’ve always been a fan of her angular face mould and she looks regally stunning in all that gold! 🙂
Ok… moving on! I’ve been ordering a bunch of game merch recently – namely of Code Realise (namely Saint Germain ^^”) and Collar x Malice (Takeru!!!!!). I’m currently on my second route of Collar x Malice with Mineo Enomoto. My first playthrough was Takeru Sasazuka because I am a softie for Tsunderes and I adore his very unique and memorable design.
Argh… I love this prickly little cactus. The game is great so far, definitely up there with Code Realize. The art is absolutely gorgeous, I’ve already ordered the visual art book to drool over. I’m really curious about Kei Okazaki (reminds me a bit of Saint?) and Kageyuki Shiraishi. I know Aiji Yanagi is cannon… but much like Lupin, feels a bit boring in design and personality to me.
Anyway, onto some merch pics – these are just the ones that have arrived… I have a bunch more on the way:
By the way – I custom made that Saint cushion… tempted to get a full size Daki of him actually… but I need to find nice high res art of him first (and no, it won’t be NSFW since I’m not really into that sorta thing).
Yea… I worship this game ^^ (and most definitely Collar x Malice soon too) – even forced my husband to play it! (poor hubbie xD!)
Anyway, that’s all for now! ^o^
Using my technique described https://moggymawee.com/2017/09/03/increase-picture-quality-with-photoshop-easy-fast/here, I decided to reorder the Saint cushion with my optimised picture. It’s soooo much clearer and better like this:
