Oh, how cool, the Japanese girl is a real family treasure and not a modern knick-knack!
(I had to look up how to spell that)
Is she a figurine or articulated?

Maybe we need a photostory contest, somewhere.
(Auwe; says the person who's eating supper at 10 pm cos she finally tried to do a photoshoot and has spent 2 hours on the one shot so far..... Razz )

29 April - Recent Arrivals

If I ever get around to opening the recently arrived parcels, it's going to feel like Christmas... or Boxing Day... or Unboxing Day.

At this point, I may as well wait for a couple more that are still in transit.

30 April – Good-Bye, Emily!

Sad

I sold the last of my "Emily Army," which at one point numbered four Ashton-Drake Emily the Strange dolls, on eBay tonight.

Well.. I think I sold her. The buyer hasn't paid yet. It's eBay, so ya know how that goes.

This was my first and favorite Emily. She was slightly different than the others; cuter, actually.

But the secondary market retail has appreciated to a point where it was worthwhile to let the Emilys go.

A contributing factor; or, actually, the primary motivating factor: during the last election cycle and throughout the COVID cycle, the official Emily the Strange Instagram account and the personal Instagram account of the Emily creators became quite political. And, I felt, they were using their character... which is their right, because it is their character... to espouse beliefs and positions that I thought were out of context for the way the character has been portrayed since her inception; which were often out of alignment with my personal ideas; which were often coercive and oppressive; and which were divisive, discriminatory, and alienating.

It made me sad to see one of my favorite characters being used in this way. I tolerated the trend for a while, but as it became more pronounced, I decided it was time for Emily and I to go our separate ways. I do not wish to support the views and opinions now being expressed through the character, and I am saddened to see this formerly rebellious and apolitical character being used as a political tool to blatantly push an agenda.

Fortunately, I was able to turn a few bucks profit in the process.

Good-bye, Emily! I will miss you!

Or, the TL;DNR version: DON'T POLITICIZE MY #$%^ DOLL HOBBY!

That's too bad that it ruined your interest in the doll. I'm not familiar with the character, other than seeing her in your posts.

Love the magazine/comic book cover!

Emily the Strange was created decades ago as a logo character for a company that made skateboard stickers. The character caught on, and for a number of years Emily merchandise was a staple at teen-oriented mall stores like Hot Topic.

There have been Emily the Strange comic books and novels. In fact, the Emily the Strange novels are some of the funniest things I have ever read.

The Ashton-Drake Emily doll is cute, but not very well made. She is technically a BJD, I suppose, held together with elastic strings, and her ability to pose is somewhat limited.

I'm probably going to miss her. Selling her was likely a rash decision. The dolls came out a decade or more ago, long before the creators began to use the character to promote their social agenda.

Ah well... new stuff on the way! That will be fun, too!

1 May - New Sindy and Friend Ball

"New Sindy" doll, Weekender version, by Kid Kreations, and, apparently, a new friend, whose name is Ball.

Ball was probably attracted by the "interesting" odor emanating from the vintage Palitoy Action Man wool coat.

2 May - Monster High Rochelle Goyle

I finally found Rochelle's original skirt. It's been missing since... this is embarrassing... September 2016.

For a couple of years Rochelle was wearing hiking shorts, so she did not need her skirt. Then, sometime in 2018, somebody borrowed the hiking shorts, leaving Rochelle somewhat under-dressed.

I've run across the skirt several times over the months... and years, so I knew I had it, somewhere. Then I would run across semi-clad Rochelle, but have no idea where the skirt had disappeared to. Finally, today, skirt and gar-girl are reunited!

Rochelle's handbag and I think her pet gargoyle are still around here somewhere. Maybe sometime in the next half-decade I'll run across them.

4 May - Fashion Styling Head

I know, I know, I was s'posed to do a Star Wars themed pic today. May the Fourth be with you!

I'm trying to largely avoid "toy aisle snapshots" this season on A Doll A Day, but these odd Hawaiian-ish "Fashion Styling Heads" were too out-of-place here in rural Utah to pass by without a photo. No purchase, however; just a photo.

There used to be a significant Samoan population in Utah, as the LDS church is popular in American Samoa and among Hawaiian-Samoans, but that was largely further north in the state. In fact, there is an abandoned Hawaiian-Samoan ghost town in north-central Utah called Iosepa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iosepa,_Utah

Clawdeen Wolfs? Clawdeens Wolf?

After a decade, I continue to learn new things about the Monster High line; like, for instance, Dead Tired Clawdeen Wolf and Room to Howl Claween Wolf are not the same figure!

Even more amazing - until a few days ago, I did not realize I had both versions in my hoarded horde of Monster High creatures!
