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?

Monster High & Ever After High @ the NY Toy Fair

It’s time for the 2014 New York Toy Fair, the “largest toy and youth product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere”; many of the big toy companies make a showing and reveal new products at this event.

There’s plenty of people who’ve been reporting on the toy fair, so I’m just going to compile the best photos I could find of the stuff that interests me personally, as well as give an overall rundown on what we can expect from these toy lines for 2014 (photos should all click through to the original source).  This particular post is going to cover Monster High and Ever After High, sister lines from Mattel.
