14 August - Bean-Gelo Pop Costume "Devil King" 6-inch figure

I tell ya, Hitler is hot in the toy and action figure market! All kinds of WWII German figures coming out lately - realistic military figures, fantasy "girl Gestapo" figs, and yes, cartoon Hitler figs. Possibly a comment on the times, I dunno. That back-o'-the-box artwork is somethin' else, in'nit?

So now are we done with this stuff? Oh heil no!

15 August - Lookit da kitty! So kuuute!

I've seen the kitty offered separately on eBay, usually for about twenty bucks, if you're interested.

There's also a couple of SS Storm Troopers (called Skinny and Fatso) available, or a complete set that includes both versions of the "Devil King" (but we know who he is) and the two SS Storm Trooper figures.

'Kay, yuck! Enough of those guys! How about something more uplifting?

18 August - Vintage Composition Nun Doll - Approx. 8 inches tall - with Sleep Eyes - and Original Box

I purchased these old nun dolls on eBay for cheap, with the intent of using the costume pieces for a project, but now that they've arrived... I can't bring myself to do it! They're too nice! They've been taken excellent care of by somebody for half a century or more... probably more like 75 years!

They're not rare or valuable. And I had no intention of collecting old nun dolls. I just wanted to use the costumes and accessories. But... how can I tear apart something that was obviously treasured by somebody for so  long?

I purchased an old nun doll a few weeks ago for the same purpose. The costume was in excellent condition, but the doll itself was plastic and was falling apart, so I felt only a minor twinge of guilt for taking her apart (the costumes are stapled to the body and head).

But these two are older composition dolls, and despite the listings offering them "as is" they are both in excellent condition. One of them even includes the original box, which is stamped "The Nun - 4285."

So now what should I do? I'm feeling torn over something that somebody... who is very likely dead now... treasured for decades. But then the poor dolls were probably sold at an estate sale or donated to a thrift store, and an eBay reseller picked them up for next to nothing and resold them... to a heartless, uncaring brute of a new owner.

I'm pretty much a failure when it comes to "repurposing" old, unwanted things. Sure, I can do it with broken or damaged things, no problem. But... these are nice old dolls! Cute in their old-fashioned composition way.

I can't bring myself to rip them apart.

Maybe I'll have to go back to eBay and keep an eye out for broken ones.

Or maybe I need to buck up and tell myself, "they're just old toys, nobody cares, and there's a ton of them on eBay, so they're not rare, nor are they valuable, so go ahead and use them for your silly craft project. Besides, if you hadn't blabbed about it, nobody would have known."

Except, I would know. And I'd feel badly about destroying them.

I apologize for allowing myself to fall behind in my daily posts. I have no legitimate excuse, it was purely laziness and a lack of organization on my part.

Technically A Doll A Day is about taking and posting a doll picture every day. Well, I've taken pics every day. It was the posting that was problematic. But we're back on track and we're gonna stay on track!

Yay for catching up. What an interesting and varied bunch you have there! Antique Star Wars Guy made me laugh. Lil Pinky at the restaurant looks rather sad. Didn't she get what she wanted? And your band looks... quite believable, haha.
I'd never heard of Bean-Gelo. Hmm... I'm not sure what to make of the idea that these are currently popular...

Not sad so much as annoyed. Her little plastic lizard pal is dragging his tail through the lunch!

29 August - Curses! Foiled Again!

Jakks Pacific Winx Club Musa doll. I think I still have her costume somewhere... but where? That's what she'd like to know! And what's with the foil? Why is she not wearing her costume? I honestly do not remember the circumstances that resulted in her becoming unclothed... unless... is she one that I purchased pre-owned and unclothed? I know that Musa was one of the more challenging figures to find. I don't recall ever purchasing an unclothed Winx Club doll, but then, there are a lot of things I seem to be having trouble recalling these days.

Ohhhh! I researched this mystery using my own Flickr photos. Musa - Concert Collection Musa - was last seen in her original outfit back in 2012. Nearly a decade ago! I didn't really realize I'd had her this long! My, how the time flies! Apparently she traded her costume in for a Pullip outfit: later in 2012 she was wearing a Pullip Neo Noir costume. She does not appear again in photos until 2018, rather a long hiatus, when she is wearing nearly nothing. The old photos, however, have helped me identify her missing costume pieces. An Integrity Toys Dynamite Girl is wearing her top. I saw her blue shorts in a box just a few days ago. They had been borrowed by a Bratz fig for a while. I'm not sure what has become of her metallic red skirt or her black boots. Maybe the Dynamite Girl is wearing the boots, too, I'll have to check.

Arte Johnson graduated from the University of Illinois! (Fun facts to know and tell!)

I also have a hard time destroying any doll in good condition, whether I like her or not. I normally put those in the sale pile.

I'm guessing you are using a camera but just a reminder that if you are using a smartphone, you CAN post directly to the Dal House Forum!!

That is a useless but fun fact with which to annoy one's friends acquaintances random strangers.

That reminds me, I keep meaning to try that direct post feature, just so's I'll know how to do it. Are there instructions posted somewhere?

I like the perspective here, again, and their poses. And it's a reminder how big they are.
Yay, all the tape worked.  After I got it wrapped it was wrinkly, and just asking to snag on something and get the paper ripped off.  I've never used that much tape on a package  Laughing
I hope she's not too intimidated by all those big dolls!
