Stardoll 2013?

Hey guys!  I wanted to make a quick post in response to some of the comments from my last post, when I spoke about new Stardolls.  I'm not exactly sure of the release date, although I'd heard talk about it being this fall but can't be sure.

So, in this post will be images of the new Stardoll line-up AND the link where you're supposedly able to pre-order.  I've not ordered from this site before but I've seen the promo picks on flickr.  One quick thing, I noticed there wasn't an AA version in this line-up.  I kind of scratched my head a little on that but thought I'd wait until they're officially out before I start pouting.  Because, I remember not seeing the AA Stardoll in the first line-up this year until they were officially out.  But...that could have just been me being late to the party as usual.

Oh, to answer Vanessa's question about new fashion packs, I've included photos of those too.

So, here you go.......

New Characters on a flight to Play-Line City...

Hey guys! Ok, so some of you  may know that I decided to keep one blog for posting updates, purchase and doll gossip and the other will focus on characters and photo stories.  Well, I am calling the page Play-Line City, sort of a series spin-off of Dolls and The City.

My main focus will be on guys & girls I consider to be more play-line.  I just really got bummed out after purchasing MOTM Nichelle, and I still don't have an articulate body for her.  Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to have her but I after realizing Christmas is around the corner, I her body can wait.  In the meantime, she will make small appearances here and there but my focus will stay with my BB's, Stardolls, and SIS group.  Also, my Ken types and action figures of course.

Now,  I'm dying to get my hands on Van's Doll Treasure's sofa/chair creations and yummy food selections.  That's what I consider to be a worthwhile purchase...furniture and diorama stuff.  If you haven't seen her furniture, be sure to check out her Etsy store!

I'm also saving up for doll clothes.  I've got my eye out A Doll Affinity's designs.  She's in the process of setting up her Etsy page too, but in the mean time you can check out her blog page.

Any-who, there are two characters flying in to Play-Line City and since most of you already have these folks, I won't post about them when they arrive.  Instead, you can keep watch of the character's profile pages, for updates and new characters.

Introducing...

Casey Waters

Casey, was purchased for a great price, NUDE.  I tried searching for a boxed version but the price online was not kosher, and I no longer see him around town.  I'll just purchase some cool outfits from one of the overseas eBay stores with free shipping. ;)



Erin Fuentes

ARRIVED YESTERDAY -  I almost purchased Erin at Target because Stardolls are still $14.95.  However, the face was all wrong.  So, I found her online at $8.95 with free shipping, only she's nude.  I can easily pick up this outfit online and it will most likely 'round off my purchase to the same deal as  Target.  I'm toying with the idea of adding the redhead NRFB because I think she'd make a good "stuck up" character, LOL.  But...I may just wait for the new Stardolls group.  There are at least three of those I'm interested in.


Stay tuned for more!  Thanks for following!

When collecting isn't fun anymore...

Ok, somber title.  I mean...it's not all that bad.  Maybe I should have named this post..."Flickr go away, you have no more power here!"

Sorry, I'm just a little salty because after purchasing my last (known) must have I'm sweating the fact I'm going to have to spend some bank on an articulate body for her.  Model of the moment Nichelle/Urban Hipster is just DOPE!  I absolutely love her and had to have her!  I tried to resist but she's one of the few things Mattel got right.  However, I'm bummed this girl can only hang on an FR body.  She can't even hang on an S.I.S. body. UGH!  Thanks, @#&* Mattel!

Now, I knew this going in but there's a part of me, the cheap part, that was kinda hoping she wouldn't look too bad on S.I.S. Chandra's body.  It was bad ya'll!  So, for the next month or two I will be in search of an FR Nadja or Annik/Quiet Storm.  Those two are the only matches for this girl. I do have a price limit but I'm not going to say right now because I'm too wishy washy, LOL.

Anyway, since this girl will put a hole in my wallet after her body is purchased, I had to scratch off some of my list guys.  In fact, I'm down to four list guys and only two list girls.  The good news is, my last two ladies are more character/celep dolls rather than model type dolls.  I've seen them at regular playline prices and they're not HTF.  Well, enough banter...let me go ahead and show you the goods....



Her fro is everything!  I so have a hair crush on this girl...



My hairspiration... :)




I tried her out anyway on an S.I.S. Chandra body even though I was already aware of the color difference, just wanted to see if it would bug me enough.  It definitely bugged me.

So, there you have it folks...the new girl has arrived and will be bunking with her BFF Brooklyn, until she finds her own place.



Bonus shots...
S.I.S. Trichelle (aka Deja Banks) was my first doll. Then who I thought was my Holy Grail came along - FR Colette (aka Taja Reyes-Hill) but she was actually a settle because I really wanted Checking out Colette
(see photo below). Just when I thought I was done, a must have was TJ Heartbreaker (aka Marley Satta). Then, I had to have Jazz Barbie (aka Lyric Scott). And when I thought I could catch my breath, I saw HR Cafe' Barbie (aka Brooklyn Banks). Now, Nichelle Petion is shutting down the shop.  I just won't go there anymore but I'm pretty happy with my collection.


Fashion Royalty Checking out Colette.  She's funkier to me and more my style but I'm o.k. with my purchase of NuFace Colette.

My two favorite girls and one more pic for the road.  This chick just doesn't take a bad photo.  I see now the fun in photographing these girls.
