    I may have mentioned about a thousand times that I have never been a Barbie collector. (IMO Silkstones don't count.) Deciding to buy this reproduction Dream House was all about finding out what the big deal was.

    Mine came directly from Mattel although they somehow lost my order and screwed up in a few other ways. This was a big box weighing about 10 pounds.

    Like a child without supervision, I snapped all the pieces out of the five heavy coated cardboard sheets before reading directions or planning.



    In any event, I managed to make it through the furniture except for the lamp. I couldn't get the lamp right and I think I lost or tossed two plastic comb-like pieces that hold the sides in place. The rest was all very easy to do and came out surprisingly sturdy.

    A few other Mattel dolls were thrown in along with the furniture and here are the pictures.











    So now that I have this gigantic thing, what am I going to do with it?

    ___________

    If you plan to purchase one, you can get if for various prices other than list. Check your local Walmart, Target and other large stores. eBay has many for sale. Some are offering free shipping as does Mattel on orders of $39. plus.

    Helen Louise has been anxiously awaiting her college graduation. Much more so than when she graduated from high school. You see, she is the first person in her family to graduate from college. She worked very hard during her high school years and graduated as valedictorian of her class with a 4.0 GPA. She wanted to get into Harvard , to study law, and become a lawyer. She even had dreams of one day serving on the Supreme Court. Right now she is just thrilled she is graduating and that her whole family will be at the graduation ceremony, including her grandmother. So, she's wearing an outfit that she knows her grandmother would love.

    Helen Louise is a free-standing cloth and wood doll. Her arms are wire-shaped and covered. She also has a painted wood head and covered round wood base. Her inner body is made from a dowel covered with fabric and eyelet lace. Her slip is lace trimmed and gathered at the waist. She has a fancy multi-tiered 2 color lace trimmed dress with long lace trimmed and gathered sleeve and a ruffled and laced collar. She has a lace shawl wrapped around her shoulders and a pearl necklace around her neck. Her beautiful brown curly hair is tied in a ponytail at the top of her head with floral accents.

    Helen is especially proud that her grandmother will be attending her college graduation. She hopes she will be attending her law school graduation and will be the first person she calls when she passes the bar. Her grandmother always wanted to attend college, but that was not in the cards for her. However, it was for Helen Louise and her grandmother could not be prouder of her.

    Mattie just loves strolling in the park with her friends - especially if it's a bright, sunny and warm Spring day. There's no need for a winter coat, or boots, or gloves, or a long woolen dress. On a bright, sunny Spring day she get to wear her favorite blue and white walking costume - which suits her just fine.

    Mattie is wearing a fancy lace trimmed dress with a ribbed, pleated bodice trimmed with gathered ribbon. The sleeves of her walking costume are long, gathered and ruffled. Her walking costume also has a fancy lace trimmed and gathered front and back overskirt. Underneath her walking costume is a lace trimmed slip and around her shoulders is a lace shawl. Her beautiful long curly blonde hair tied in a ponytail and enhanced with floral accents. Silk floral pieces decorate her waistband and neckline. She also has a painted wood head and covered round wood base. Her inner body is made from a dowel covered with fabric and eyelet lace. Her arms are wire-shaped and covered.

    Today just happens to be a bright, sunny, and warm Spring day. And, for that, Mattie is grateful.

Also shown are a pair of Dinobot Mini-Cons, presumed to turn into accessories for larger figures. It's unknown whether they'll ship with Primal or separately, but if we were guessing... we wouldn't bother, because we have no idea. Click through to see the dinos!

    UPDATE: We've been reminded that the figures in this leaked image from Weibo are the Titan Guardians sofubi (Soft Vinyl)-style figures. The figures shown were SDCC 2014 exclusives, and the purple exposed leg is a match for Beast Hunters Shockwave. So, does this "leak" actually mean anything?

    The "dollies" are never ones to sit idle and were heavily involved in some of my new custom fabric designs. They would tell you that they were the main impetus in all my new designs.  That would be true, especially when it came to the new designs for The Dollie Storage Room Fabric Collection.

    They hope you like their new designs:

    I am a big fan of tote bags.  The more the merrier.  I use than for all sorts of reasons as I'm sure you all do too.  For the most part they work out great, but once in awhile, they're just not big enough.  As a result, I'm always on the look out for larger ones.

    I'm sure all of you have your fabric stash piles like I do.  For years now I've been looking at two lightweight cotton twill fabrics in a pile on top of my sewing basket.  They're there to remind me to do something with them. So, of course, they've sat there for years now.

    Well, this year I decided to make a few really big lined tote bags with long straps for Christmas presents.


    I had previously bought 5 yards of my Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric #1  custom fabric design out of lightweight cotton twill and decided that I'd use it to make three lined tote bags.


    My sister had given me several yards of this blue and white check fabric that she had gotten from a friend and had given to me. She was cleaning out her stash of fabrics and knew I wouldn't refuse it.  It would be used at some point in time.  In looking at my Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric #1  custom fabric design I decided the blue and white check would be a perfect compliment for a lining not only for these three bags but for the Victorian Pastel Water Lilies Flower Fabric 15  cut and sew tote bag as well.

    I decided a  22" wide by 21" long by 6" deep lined tote bag with a square corner would be a perfect size for these three as well.  I figured I would start with the three yards of my Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric #1  custom fabric design out of cotton twill first.

    Here's how I made my tote bag:

    Supplies Needed Per Bag:

    1 Yard of 58" wide Lightweight Cotton Twill Fabric - Beautiful Victorian Flowers Fabric  (for bag)
    1 1/4 Yards of 42" Wide Cotton Fabric (for lining)
    Sewing Thread and Upholstery Thread
    1/2" Lace Trim - 1 1/2 Yards
    1 Yard of Fusi-boo Batting

    Instructions:

    RS - Right Sides       RST - Right Sides Together       RSO - Right Sides Out
    WS - Wrong Sides    WST - Wrong Sides Together    WSO - Wrong Sides Out


    1) Cut two sections of lightweight cotton twill fabric 22" wide by 21" long, two sections of the cotton fabric lining 22" wide by 21" long, and  two sections of the fusi-boo batting 22" wide by 21" long.




    2) Cut two sections of the lightweight cotton twill 5" wide by 31" long and two sections of the fusi-boo batting 3" wide by 29" long for the handles.


    3) Iron the two lightweight cotton twill sections and two cotton fabric sections for the tote bag.

    4) Sandwich one of the fusi-boo pieces in between the WS of one of the lightweight cotton twill fabric pieces and WS of one of the cotton fabric pieces so you have a 3-layer tote bag section.  Do the same with the other lightweight cotton twill piece, fusi-boo piece, and other cotton fabric piece. You should have two 3-layer tote bag sections.

    5) Iron the RS of the lightweight cotton twill fabric and then turn the 3-layer tote bag section over and iron the RS of the cotton fabric so the fusi-boo fabric is fused to the WS of both the lightweight cotton twill and cotton fabrics. Do the same for the other 3-layer tote bag sections.
     

    6)  The edges of the two 3-layer tote bag section will be labeled as shown in the illustration above.


    7)  Baste the top edge of each of the two 3-layer tote bag section pieces.


    8) The edges of the handles will be labeled as shown in the illustration above.

    9)  Turn one of the handle pieces over and place one of the 29" by 3" Fusi-Boo pieces on the WS of the handle piece so it is evenly centered.  Do the same for the other handle piece.


    10) Turn the side edges of the handle fabric over 1" WST so they cover the edges of the fusi-boo as shown in the illustration above and iron the 1" sides.  Do the same for the other handle piece.


    11) Fold the bottom side edge over 1 1/2" so it meets the top side edge and iron both sides so the fusi-boo is fused in between the side edges of the handle. The handle piece should now measure 1 1/2" by 31".  Do the same for the other handle piece.


    12)  Top-stitch the 31" folded over side edge 1/4" from the edge and then top-stitch the other side edge 1/4" from the fold. Do the same for the other handle piece and then iron both and set them aside.


    13) Place the two tote bag sections RS so the lightweight cotton twill fabrics are RST and so the  basted top edge, side edges, and bottom edges are even.


    14) With RST stitch the two tote bag sections along the sides edges and bottom edge using a 3/4" seam allowance.  Trim the seams leaving a 3/8" seam allowance.


    15) Finish stitch along the side edges and bottom edge using a zig-zag stitch or overlock stitch.


    16) You want to square the bottom left and right corners of the tote bag sections to form a square bottom 6" wide with 3" on the left side and 3" on the right side.  Measure 3" up from the bottom left corner edge and mark the four Point A’s on the side edge of the two tote bag sections as shown in the illustration above. You should have two Point A’s on the left hand side edge of the sewn tote bag sections and two Point A’s on the right hand side edge of the sewn tote bag sections. Measure 3" across the bottom edge from the left corner bottom edge and the mark the four Point B’s on the bottom edge of the two tote bag sections as shown in the illustration above. You should have two Point B’s on the left hand side bottom edge of the sewn tote bag sections and two Point B’s on the right hand side bottom edge of the sewn tote bag sections. Mark the four Point C’s on the side edge of the two tote bag sections as shown in the illustration above. You should have two Point C’s on the left hand side edge of the sewn tote bag sections and two Point C’s on the right hand side edge of the sewn tote bag sections. Mark the four Point D’s on the side edge of the two tote bag sections as shown in the illustration above. You should have two Point D’s on the left hand side edge of the sewn tote bag sections and two Point D’s on the right hand side edge of the sewn tote bag sections.

    17) With RST bring the Points B on the left hand side bottom edge of the sewn tote bag sections to meet the Points A, on the left hand side edge, as indicated in the illustration above and pin to hold.  Do the same for the right hand side Points A and B.

    18) Sew straight across on the left hand side edge from Point C on the front hand side edge to Point C on the back left hand side edge. Your sewn line should measure 6".  Do the same for the two Point C’s on the right hand side edge of the sewn tote bag. This should create a triangle on the sides and a rectangle on the bottom of the sewn tote bag. Fold the triangle down along the bottom edge and hand stitch at the top of the triangle to hold it to the bottom edge seam with upholstery thread.


    19) Turn the bag RSO and iron the seams.


    20)  Measure 4" from the top front top edge and top front right edge.  Do the same for the top back top edge. 


    21) With RST place the bottom edge of one of the straps at the 4" mark on the top front left top edge and the top edge of that same handle RST on the top front right top edge with the handle facing downwards towards the bottom of the tote bag and pin both to hold. Do the same for the remaining handle and top back top edge.

    22) Turn the tote bag inside out so the handles are facing downwards on the inside of the bag and the cotton lining fabric showing on the outside.  With RST fold the top edge of the tote bag and handle under twice and pin to hold.

    23) Stitch the top edge of the folded under top edge of the tote bag 1/4" from the bottom edge of the folded down section.




    24)  Pull the handles up and with RST pin the handles to the top edge of the tote bag. Stitch 1/4" from the top edge of the folded down area and handle.




    25)  Turn the tote bag RSO.  Cut a piece of the 1/2" lace trim to fit around the top edge of the tote bag overlapping the edges by 2".  Fold one edge of the lace trim WST and then pin the lace trim to the top edge of the tote bag along the sewn line on the bottom of the folded down section. Continue pining around the top of the tote covering your sewn line until meeting the lace trim again.  Fold the edge of the lace trim under 1" and pin to hold.  Stitch the lace trim to the tote bag stitching along the center line of the lace trim.



    26) Your tote bag should look as shown in the picture above.


    27) The inside of the tote bag should look as shown in the picture above.

    Writing about Super Smash Bros for an article covering fan service is a bit of a cop-out. The series is literally nothing but fan service. Since Melee, every Smash game has dived deeper and deeper into the history of Nintendo, pulling out references from nearly every product Nintendo has put out. There are callbacks to characters from games we haven't seen in years and products Nintendo hasn't made in decades, with Smash for Wii U and 3DS featuring the most extensive historical record the series has seen yet.

    Really, going into this topic I was planning to write about Duck Hunt Dog calling in the NES Zapper Posse to blast his opponents away. As much as I love that, it ain't got nothing on Mega Man. Mega Man's Final Smash is a celebration of a series people assume Capcom didn't care about for the longest time. Hell, Mega Man's appearance in Smash is the most love and care given to the character in nearly a decade. With his unique move set, Mega Man easily outshone the other 3rd-Party guest characters. With his Final Smash, he outdid the rest of the cast.

    I don't remember where I was when I first saw his final smash, but I do remember my jaw dropping and nearly crashing my browser reloading the YouTube clip. Even though I prefer other characters, I made myself get good with him just so I could see Mega Man, X, EXE, Volnutt, and Star Force come together in one spectacular finish. It's so frickin' good that if Mega Man returns in Smash Switch, I wouldn't mind if his Final Smash was left untouched.

    First of all, these are only games with an announced 2018 release date. None of this "when it's ready" stuff (I'm looking at you, Into the Breach). In fact, if all of these games don't release in 2018...I'll play through Troll and I again. That's how you know I mean business.

    Oh please god let all of these games release this year...

    I do this list each year, and I'm never sure how many games to include. This year, I figured 18 is a great number since, well, it's 2018! Plus, due to the aforementioned "they better come out or so help me" rule, I figured the fewer the better. So here are the games to mark on your calendars this year.

    U.S. retailer GameStop, as well as GAME Spain, have listed a selection of new figurines for pre-order. The toys, representing numerous gaming characters, are the first in a new range named Totaku, designed by in-house outfit ThinkGeek.

    The non-functional figures stand just under four inches tall and will retail for around $10 each. Style similarities to previous toy ranges, such as Nintendo amiibo and Disney Infinity, are readily apparent. Although the toys have no in-game usage, the Totaku bases can be interlocked, allowing collectors to build wacky crossover dioramas.

    Despite getting off to a promising start, Season Two of Telltale Games' take on The Dark Knight has stumbled. With only five episodes to Tell said Tale, the story has become overbooked, with too many characters all jostling for screen-time in an effort to build an emotional connection with the player. This is not to mention the sporadic technical issues that have befallen the series, with hard crashes, animation freezes, and texture pop-in issues troubling some players in the past.

    However, there are still two episodes of The Enemy Within remaining and, in its favour, some great work has been done in building the shaky relationship between not only Bruce Wayne and his smiley pal John Doe, but also between Bruce Wayne and his own conscience. Even with the series' plotting problems, and a few less-than-magnetic performances, Telltale still has time to pull all the narrative threads together to deliver a superb finale.
