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
