I got my second tangkou doll today! I had bought her from ebay for a nice price with free shipping. She used but in great condition. Her name will be Sumomo. She will be Sorairo’s older sister.
To celebrate the weather, today’s pony is G1 Mountain Boy Ice Crystal. He is, perhaps, the most wanted of the Big Brothers because of his coloring and rarity. This particular shade of green is pretty unusual in G1 ponies and in general - it’s very close to G3 Minty or G4 Lyra.
Ebay bidding for doll/toy collectors in a nutshellWhen you find a doll or toy you have been wanting on ebay for auction, and it’s a great deal When you bid for said item and no one has bid against you for the longest
When someone bids against you out of nowhere Are you gonna just let this jackass win? When someone Keeps outbidding you on a doll or toy you want on ebay When your almost about to win…… ………….But they win instead Alternative, You are the one who won
dang baby…i mean…billy.. what happened to you?
Why Mattel? He was perfect the way he was. There are just some things you should not do mattel. Just why? I am legitimately disappointed, although they did not change much, I am still soooooo disappointed. Mostly in the newest art mh has been getting. The new picture honestly looks like it was done on a base. And don’t get me started on his face. At first he looked like a playful prankster, but now he looks like a rude little bitch. Seriously just no.
I had a rather peculiar encounter in Kmart today
So I was at Kmart today, shopping something, and I decide that I may as well go check to see what was in the girl toy section. I was looking at the dolls and I notice that this black woman askes me for help with something. She was maybe in her fifties. Of course when someone askes me for help while I’m in any store I immediately think they must think that I wotk their, but she did not ask me if I worked their or not so I assumed she thoughr I was just a regular shopper. I asked her what she needed my help with, and she had asked me what 8 year old girls like. I told her that I think that they generally still like dolls and she asked what kind of dolls, basically what was popular. I of course promoted Monster High dolls like the fan I am and said “Well Monster High dolls are really popular.” I showed her to them and she seemed very displeased. She said she was apart of christian church and that she didn’t like the dolls because they looked “satanic”. I asked her whatever did she mean generally knowing what she might have said, but I never expected her to say that “they look satanic, like their in a rock band or something”. I guess I was lucky that today instead of my regular edgy wear I was dressed in a way what most people would consider “normal”, or she most likely wouldn’t have approached me. I tried to reassure her that they were not satanic, and that the doll line was basically about being true to yourself and what you are, but she was not going to be convinced, she much preferred to be attached to her ignorant way of thinking. Anyways I was pretty much done with the conversation right there, but I generally wanted to help so I tried to find something else she might be willing to get. I asked her “What about fairies? Are fairies ok?” She asked what I meant by fairies so I showed her to the disney fairies dolls and puck up a celebrate pixie party Periwinkle doll (I’m definitely not an 8 year old but I was generally showing her dolls I personally liked, and was most likely to get.) She looked the doll over and said that it was very pretty, but that she didn’t buy white dolls. That was pretty much my second flare that I should exit this conversation and be done. Just wow, I guess the other reason why she approached me was because I was the only other black person in the entire girl’s toy section. Another reason is that she might have thought I was also someone searching for a toy for a little black girl, because she would have never have guessed that someone of my age was in the toy section because I was a doll collector, and not shopping for a child but for me. Anyways I still decided to help her even though I highly did not agree with her values. I said “ooookay you know what I know just what you are looking for.” I had her follow me to the barbie section and showed her the Barbie so in style dolls. She seemed very pleased with these ones and told me that these dolls didn’t look satanic at all, not like much of the newest toys. I just nodded and and told her that I liked the one with the curly caramel hair and roller skates the best. She thanked me and went off with that one and I too left the toy section. And that concludes my awkward encounter, but it was really nice to help someone out.
Lately I’ve been looking at dolls and I really wanted to paint some of them!
