As a passionate doll owner I'm often looking for the unique. Something different. Something that will add to my current collection. After Christmas, I found the Star Dolls on sale for 50% at my local Walmart. I got six of them and the three accessory sets. There was a lot of interesting and unique pieces. They definitely are not the run of the mill.
I purchased the Point of Departure Eugenia giftset from the last Integrity Convention. Although the doll is very lovely, the clothing just didn't seem thought out. Even though there hasn't been much love for the ensembles, something inside me told me to try those cigarette pants on a shorter doll.
I knew the Star Dolls shoes were rather gigantic, but I finally deboxed a Monster High Ghoulia to model them. They are a great accessory for these dolls.
This year I've passed on several dolls from Integrity Toys. I had to think long and hard about the recent offering Glam Addict Giselle.
The price for this "mini" giftset was rather steep. But Giselle is a favored a character (and hasn't had her face changed yet!). What was the decision-making detail. Don't laugh! The heel-less shoes. Very modern and different. If I decide I don't like the doll, I can always sell her on secondary market and still make a profit. But I'm keeping those shoes!
