Details

The fantastically detailed accessories are one of the awesome things about Monster High dolls, and definitely one of the things that sets them apart from other toy lines.  I would love love love to know if the masters are sculpted digitally or by hand, ’cause damn they put some seriously tiny detail into this stuff.

Unfortunately because the brand has gotten so huge, they haven’t been putting as much paint on the accessories as they used to, and all that lovely sculpted detail gets lost.

A while ago, I painted Black Carpet Cleo’s purse for an ANTM challenge on the MH Arena, and this past week I painted a whole batch of accessories – it makes such a huge difference!

Here’s what I’ve done so far:

I’ve been pondering setting up an etsy shop for doll stuff, and putting some repainted accessories in it.  What do y’all think?
