I realized today that I never posted any side by side shots of my Jackson cosplay from Otakon last year! >_< Also, I would gladly wear either of these again if I can ever find another MH cosplayer attending!
In honor of our recent Chinese New Year festivities, I have to share this powerful picture of Jinafire. Her passion and strength is inspiring monsters everywhere to make their screams come true in 2013.
While we were at Target, I was showing my dad Slo Mo’s picture on the back of the Ghoul Spirit box and I heard “Is that Slo Mo?” from behind us. It was a woman taking her 8-year-old daughter through the Monster High section. Judging by her interest, she was a collector. “Yeah, no one’s spotted him yet” I replied. “I heard he was recalled because they messed up his hands” She continued.
Is this true? I hadn’t heard anything like that on any of the insider websites. I regrettably forgot to ask her where she had heard this from.. It makes sense, considering he’s nowhere to be found and his line’s released..
While I’m excited to FINALLY see the new releases that are coming up, I have to admit I’m kind of disappointed in them. They just seem to lack variety in my opinion. As it stands I’ll only be purchasing a couple of the new releases.
For one thing, I am sick of seeing Lala in almost every line. She is so overused at this point. Let’s mix it up a bit. And how about a male character or two? Waves 1 and 2 each had a couples 2 pack, so why not an AbbeyxHeath or GhouliaxSlowMoe 2 pack? Maybe even throw in Invisibilly? We’ve seen his box art already, so why not? Waves 3 and 4 just seemed paltry in comparison to the first 2 waves of basics. Also, while I’m in love with the deluxe fashion packs for Retta and Ghoulia, I guess I was expecting something similar to the I heart Fashion dolls.
Anywho, there’s my 2cents. I guess I should be grateful that I won’t be spending too much money with these new lines.
Happy Chinese New Year! 2013 promises to be a lucky one so I scream to be better at anything I can improve on (think spicy new fashion designs and a temper that’s a little less combustible). – Jinafire
