I walked right by the Monster High selection at Wal*Mart several times
before I noticed them on Flickr and decided to actually take a look. At first I wasn't really interested (Frankie eh, Cleo eh, Clawdeen .. kind of cute but eh, Draculaura .. cute but not for me) and then I saw Lagoona Blue.
Fuck you, Mattel. :/
She's adorable. I love her face, her fins, everything. Unfortunately Wal*Mart thinks I ought to pay them $30 to own her and some stickers so I said fuck that noise and checked out Ebay. Slightly
better but I think I'll hit up Amazon sales closer to Halloween/Christmas and never mind that $30 crap. I'm not sure Mattel even MAKES anything I'd be willing to pay $30 to own.
End of story, right?
I saw Spectra Vondergeist on Flickr
. Now I really hate Mattel AND Flickr. :/ She's definitely on my Christmas wishlist.
Meanwhile, on a slightly more productive side of things, Rikka and I picked up some cloth stock from Wal*Mart and I ordered some Simplicity sewing patterns for Barbie dolls. I've always wanted to make my own Barbie clothes so I picked up the (supposedly) easy patterns and plan to get started as soon as they arrive.
One of the cats fucked up my sewing machine like nobody's business. I need to re-load the entire thing. Again.
