TAG Hobby has posted images from Figure-Oh (Figure King) magazine that show off just how detailed MP Star Saber is. The articulation looks excellent, the Brainmaster gimmick is completely present and working, and the antennae can even be put at different angles so you can have toy, anime, or TV Magazine Star Saber! On top of which we have an image of a new SD EX Gokin Rodimus Prime figure via Artstorm! Keep reading for all the details!
Why would I order a doll whose lip sculpt I detest? I love the outfit. Crazy, isn't it? I'll bet there are many out there who have done the same and it's not the first time for me either.
What I don't understand is why can't the Tonner Doll Company do this for $140.?
This doll may have a botoxed face...
|I want to file off her upper lip. It's a damn shelf.|
...but the rest of her is excellent from her hair to her feet. Her body is very articulated and easy to pose. Her hands and feet come off for those who wish to cripple their dolls for whatever purpose. The fashion is well constructed of nice fabrics. There's that tiny zipper at the fly which is so adorable. Belt loops and tiny gold buttons are little details that go into making a nice fashion. I added the sunglasses. I did try putting them over her lips but that didn't work.
She's got accessories and jewelry. You can't tell me they're not making money on this doll.
We don't get this quality in a $225. doll from Tonner now. We do get beautiful faces. I'm going to switch a Tonner head onto this body...but it won't have eyelashes. Sigh.
It’s time to pack lunches for your kiddos and send them back to school with healthy and nutritious snacks. Living in California our girls spend time outdoors at several points during the day, it’s hot here still and even though school just started our girls need that snack before lunch. I always make sure to pack… [read more]
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Time Warner Cable. The opinions and text are all mine.

To pick up where I left off...I loved the Winterthur trip and the Broadway show but, seriously, I could have made those optional excursions at any time because of where I live. That decision was on me. Luncheon at the DuPont hotel is probably something I'd never have experienced. It was a nice touch that could have been enhanced by a little background info or tour of the public rooms. The dining room was magnificent.
The Metropolitan Museum's Charles James exhibit was insanely wonderful. I learned so much about the artist and his work.
I was so looking forward to was George Sarofeen's presentation. Something went wrong and it was rescheduled to the next day at a time when I couldn't be there. :-(
His talks have been highlights of prior events for me.
My table mates were the best! (Go Table 6!) Luckily I was able to use credit card miles to pay for the hotel stay which was pretty pricey for a less than nice facility. Maybe I just got a crummy room. I know some people thought the hotel was fine.
I thought I'd come home with some amazing stuff other than what I purchased and two of the convention gifts, (Tree Ball Gown and Coney Island Cutie.) The other fashions just did not do it for me. The optional purchases were, for the most part, droolworthy. I purchased four extra fashions and wanted several more. I have pre-ordered three additional items. During the event, as the cost went up and up, I erased my name from a few pre-order lists.
I am very fond of Sandra. She knows how to put an event together. If you have read any of my past experiences with her conventions, you will know how much I loved them. There is an incredible amount of work and planning that goes into a convention; however, I would like to see less attention focused on the optional sales and more care given to the "gifts" attendees go home with. In my opinion, the stuff given to attendees should be at least equal to the best of the lot.
I am very happy with these Charles James inspired fashions. The first three were optional purchases.
This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Rubbermaid but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FallFixUp http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV It’s hard to believe that we are already going back to school and after a very busy summer our front yard is looking a little neglected.

I don’t have a complicated algorithm to select a second figure after I getting the one I want most, other than simply pick whatever character seems to be the less abundant on the pegs on a second visit, and that one was today’s review subject, none other than Loki.
A new club allows members to experience a variety of exotic cars.
The majestic Spycrab: the most notable of the fauna from the world of Team Fortress 2. Now, We Love Fine has taken what started as an in-game-glitch-turned-meme and transformed it into a plush. The Spycrab plush features a design from contributor Threnodi, which evokes Shawnimals' style a bit. However, it is definitely TF2's Spy underneath, with that little cigarette sticking out of its mouth, along with some poseable claws.
Pre-order the little Spycrab of your choice at We Love Fine for US$20. You'll have to wait for November for yours to arrive, though, but you will get a Spycrab item for TF2 with your purchase.
Since the new oversized delux come with a moving feature – do Lil’ Dipper or Dipper … wheels fold in? “Blazin” Blade Ranger – presumably the same working featureof an open door and hook? (This is Blade Ranger as “CHoPs” helicopter cop – essentially a repaint with tinted glasses and helmet). Tweet This Post
Well there's only a couple months until Halloween, or what's formerly known as "All Hallows Eve." And, I can hardly wait.
Now you might be wondering why that is and you may just be asking yourself - "Is she a witch?" Well, I was born in a state famous for witches and it's quite possible that someone in my family line may have been a witch, but the reason is much simpler - I'm a crafter and crafters LOVE Halloween.
Why is that?
Well, you see Halloween has become a favorite holiday of doll makers and crafters because there are so many different types of dolls and various types of crafts that you can make for this one holiday.
Ghosts, goblins, and witches. Oh my!
Frankenstein, Dracula, and vampires. Oh,my!
Bats, pumpkins, and skulls. Oh my!
Skeletons, monsters, and witches brew. Oh,my!
Candy corn, costumes, and haunted houses. Oh my!
What a wondrous holiday for crafting.
So, of course, in thinking about Halloween I began to wonder how this all started. Well, the answer lies in the true origins of Halloween and the ancient Celtic tribes who lived in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Brittany. November 1st for the Celts marked the beginning of a new year and the coming of winter. So the night before the new year the Celts celebrated the Festival of Samhain, who was the Lord of the Dead. The Celts believed that during this festival the souls of the dead (including ghosts, goblins, and witches, oh my!) returned to mingle with the living.
In order to scare away the evil spirits the Celts would wear masks and the children would wear costumes. Halloween costumes have traditionally been monsters such as vampires, ghosts, witches, and devils, oh my!
Well, in 19th century Scotland and Ireland the reason the children wore such fearsome costumes was the belief that since the spirits of the dead were intent on doing harm that night, the best way to avoid this was to fool the dead spirits into thinking you were one of them. Monsters, vampires, and skeletons, oh my!
So, we know the reason for the costumes. Why carve pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns? Scary faces on pumpkins to boot, oh my! Why do we put candles in them and set them on the porch, oh my? This tradition is also derived from ancient celebrations and actually began with a turnip. The Celts would hollow out the turnips and place lighted candles inside to scare off the evil spirits. When the Irish came to America, they discovered that the pumpkin was a much larger substitute for the turnip. If it's larger, it's scarier. If it's scarier it will ward off evil spirits.
But, why are they called jack-o-lanterns? Well, it all started with an Irishman (of course) named Jack who was forced to roam the earth with just a burning coal inside his pumpkin to light the way for him. He had to roam the earth forever because he had never performed a single selfless act his whole life, oh my!
So, once again crafters and doll makers have tradition and folklore to credit for a slew of wondrous crafts and dolls to make for Halloween, oh my! It's one of my favorite times of the year.
I, personally, have made many ghosts, Dracula, and Frankenstein doll patterns for my Linda Walsh Originals website. All of my ghosts, Dracula, and Frankenstein designs are shown in the picture at the top of this post. My ghosts, Dracula, and Frankenstein e-patterns can be seen HERE and my print patterns can be seen HERE.
I have also designed several custom fabrics using some of my ghosts, Dracula, and Frankenstein designs. The products I have made from some of my custom fabric designs can be seen in the picture above and HERE. My Holiday Custom Fabric Designs Collection can be seen HERE.
I have also made many ghosts, Dracula, and Frankenstein dolls, jack-o-lanterns, and mummies based on other designers patterns which can be seen in the picture in the middle of this post and HERE.

Frankensteins, Dracula, and vampires. Oh my!
Bats, pumpkins, and skulls. Oh my!
Skeletons, monsters, and witches brew. Oh my!
Candy corn, costumes, and haunted houses. Oh my! What a wondrous day to be alive!

Some dolls are full of modern charm - like tattoos and infinity scarves. Some dolls are full of childlike wonder – pigtails and pinafores. Some seem to have a world all their own – like this timeless beauty of a doll by Severina Kids. All those screenprinted details – I particularly like the lacey little […]
