So a while ago I got lucky enough to be one of the winners of the Monster High Zomby Gaga giveaway on Twitter, and last week the doll finally reached me! I’m so extremely grateful to have this, and I’ll cherish her till the end of time!

Luts Kid Zuzu Delf Corni Unboxing! *Warning: Doll Nudity*

She’s here!!!! After two months of waiting, my new bjd has made it home to me! I received the tracking number for her a mere three days ago, and today she made it to my doorstep! I was shocked with how quickly she arrived!

This is the box she came in!

….And inside that box was this pretty blue box! The card on top is the Certificate of Ownership and it has my order number on it as well as the doll type. :) 

Upon opening the blue box was this little booklet and a couple of cards placed in a plastic bag! The pictures are so pretty! ^_^ Before proceeding any further with the unboxing, I decided to take a sneak peak inside the booklet, and it happened to be an instruction manual on how to care for your bjd and how to change their eyes and restring them. Very useful for a beginner like me! :) Between the two cards were two strips of velcro with an adhesive backing, which I assume is to keep the wig in place. 

This is the new wig I had ordered for her! x3 I was glad to be able to place the order just in time to combine the shipping with my doll, because the original wig I had purchased just wasn’t going to work for her. After seeing this wig in person, I feel like I made the right choice! The colors are gorgeous and it’s so soft! The waves are really beautiful, too!

This was what was under the top pillow! The doll, as well as the extra parts she came with, were protected very well by thick layers of bubble wrap!

Her ears and tail! They are magnetized, so it’s easy to put them on and take them off! I need to figure out how to put the small magnet to her back though, since it didn’t already come attached to her body like the ones on her head. 

Whoa! Look at those eyes! They really jump out at you! It was surprising to say the least when I finally removed the bubble wrap from around her head and saw those peepers staring back at me!

She’s finally free from her (cozy) box prison! She’s also quite naked. ^^; But I think she has a lovely body. I was impressed by the details. ^_^ (For anyone that may be wondering, I picked the Luts Type 1 Romantic Body for her.) and she stands so well on her own! <3 I didn’t struggle in the least to get her on her feet!

A closer view of her faceup! She’s drop dead gorgeous! *_* The colors are beautiful and I adore the blushing on her face! <3 I’m more than pleased with everything about it! Luts get’s 5 out of 5 stars from me, and I will most definitely order from them again in the future!

And now, I present to you the lovely Serenade! She is finally is all put together and fully clothed! (It took me a few minutes to get her all dressed up.) I’m so happy that everything I had bought for her fits her perfectly! Now I know for certain that MSD sizes are what she wears. I was  really concerned over that. I am also really glad that the style of the clothes really suit her! I love her look! <3 I’d love to know what you all think about Serenade, too! I plan on posting more photos of her soon, as well as her story!

I managed to snag Crystal Winter for $13 on amazon, nearly half price. She’s pretty cute in person, and you can barely see her molded tights. She seems to not have some of the accessories from official photos, and doesnt come with a stand. Luckily, I recently bought 10 bootleg stands from china for $9, and they’re worth every penny now that mattel is cheaping out.

I’m always very excited when there’s a new pony in with the ten thousandth iteration of the mane six!!

Today I found Coloratura (what a name!)
She’s a blue pony which is a bit of a rarity in gen 4, and her cutie mark is really well done. I’m so happy they went back to putting the glitter in the plastic like in previous generations, instead of glueing it to the body.

Sugar Coated Ginger Breadhouse Playset Unboxed

Doll playsets are something I just don’t feel compelled to own. While the dolls in them are almost always appealing, the price for them in a playset isn’t, especially because for the most part I don’t typically unbox my dolls; not yet anyway, because I don’t have proper places to display them, but even when I can, I don’t see myself having enough room to have giant playsets set up all over the place.

That being said, I liked Ginger’s ‘look’ as soon as her basic doll was released, just not enough that her doll felt like a must have for my collection. When I read her book though (Kiss & Spell), I fell so much in-love with her character as a whole. And her being a baker, like me, was just one reason. So… if there was ever a playset that seemed appropriate for me to have, a treat baking scene seemed like the one. Still, I really didn’t want to pay the $40 bucks for it, so I put it on my Christmas wishlist and lucky for me, my sister got her for me!

I must say, the details in the playset are phenomenal! Wherever this scene ends up on display, I’m sure it will look awesome. While there are plenty of places for her to sit in this set, I do wish she’d come with a stand because she doesn’t last long when you try to get her to do it on her own. I also need to learn how to do some damage control on her hair because there was this awful gel kink in her ponytail and brushing it out only made it a puffy kink. Overall, though, I LOVE this set and it was really fun to finally open an Ever After High doll. :)

My brother told me that I couldn’t be a doll collector if I kept none of my dolls brand new in box. Like, what does that even mean? I don’t have the space to be storing in-box dolls and I don’t have money to throw around for dolls that won’t come out of the box. I get that a lot of people do buy doubles of dolls, and good for them, but I don’t. And I don’t think that invalidates me as a collector or any unboxer either. It made me wonder if others have been told that their collection is meaningless because they took the dolls out of the box.
