Monster High Gore-geous Ghoul Beast Freaky Friend: Sally

I thought the 17″ (38cm) Frightfully Tall Ghoul line of Monster High dolls were the tallest Monster High dolls. I was wrong.

I am new to dolls and much of what I know comes from getting a doll that’s been through some rough time and then Googling to figure out WTF I have.

I know that the Monster High Voltageous dolls are 28″ (71cm) because I have one now. It came in THE BOX OF DOLLS.

Meet my new Gore-geous Ghoul Beast Freaky Friend (Green).

She originally came with attachable wings, extra webbed hands, shoe covers, multiple glasses and headbands, a dress, and…AN EXTRA FLESH FACE SHE CAN WEAR OVER HER ORIGINAL FACE.

It just pops right on!

Thanks to Gina, I now have:

Her. She comes with shoes that are not meant to come off, a dress, and no hands.

Her eye gimick works, you click a button on the back of her head and her eyes change to three different options. The white is “in between”

A child has also added glitter to her eyelids.

Her hair was a little sparse but I couldn’t get the scalp off and it was the right color for…SALLY

No hands was a drawback but I figured I could hunt for some or sculpt my own…because WHY NOT sculpt jointed hands.

In removing her face I came close to destroying her. I started with Acetone (which melts this sort of plastic) and then caught my error and continued with paint thinner and sand paper.

I also started experimenting with carving.

And then her eyes rolled back into her skull. A section of old plastic snapped…rollllll.

I was unable to get to her eyes. The plastic held a section of the gimick in place inside her skull.

So….with a thin hacksaw and some prying I TOOK HER SKULL OFF.

My reasoning being that:

  • I could always re-attach it.
  • I could widen her eye holes more for better Sally proportions.
  • I could add hair to the scalp before replacing it.
  • It was free.
  • Why not?

 

Tonight I’ll experiment with carving her body and preparing to add resin epoxy strings.

New Normal, folks
