Got these two lovely ladies at target yesterday! An expensive trip, but I had already planned to get the blue haired barbie extra, and when I saw Ms. Ella for $30 (versus like 40-70 online), I had to scoop her too. I really liked the barbie extra’s outfit except that Myrtle-Beach-souvenir-shop-ass shirt and the “girl power” earrings 🙄. I gave her a much simpler top that matches her hair instead.

Took Evelyn to the park for a photo shoot
It really is too bad I cannot get a PhD in dolls.
I wanted to make some dragon-riding tack for one of my plush dragons, because I thought it would be cool if Lio could ride them!
So I put together a bridle! It’s cheap leather cord from the craft store, held together with glue and jump rings, with some embroidery floss details. (And jingly bells!) I also made some reins, with lobster claws so they can be removed or refigured into a lead.
Don’t they look handsome? Only one problem…
My dragon is a bit too small for Lio to ride. But that’s okay! She can take him for a walk, and maybe later on, one of my smaller dolls can go for a dragon ride.
(Lio is a legit Souldoll Amy head on a recast Minifee A-line body. I have no idea where the dragon is from, sorry.)
Jada was finally able to get the photo shoot she deserves.
Y’all weren’t there and it shows
Oh noooooo Babs is raiding the Rainbow High closet…
“She doesn’t even go here!!!” 🤣
Made from patterns by @dollsahoy, shoes are from her as well (thanks thanks)!!

I had a dream that I was a child again watching saturday morning cartoons when suddenly an ad played that stunned me. An ad for a new line of Barbie.
Her name was “No Pain Barbie!” and she was marketed as a Barbie that “Definitely isn’t in excruciating pain!” Her face was twisted into a concerned smile or pained grimace and each doll came with a medical certificate detailing a different illness or injury that she definitely wasn’t suffering from.
I pleaded and cried at my parents hoping they’d buy me one but they just looked at the doll forlornly.
I am not entirelt sure if this is a new wave if Cave Club or if the popularity just plumetted after the first wave, but I couldn’t find anything online, othee than a playset with a different character. Or maybe it’s one of those weird thing were only Mexico gets a line of dolls? (Like the Ghouls alive Robecca or the Mauleristas)
Slate apparently wasn’t invited to the sleepover :(
I knew Instagold’s hairstyle would be kinda difficult to paint in rainbow colors, but… when has that stopped me before? I thought it would look pretty neat in rainbow colors, so I went for it. I also wanted to paint her because I realized I had duplicates of her Lil sister, small bunny, and dog, who all have the same hairstyle. Because why paint it once, when you can do it four times, getting smaller and smaller?
Joking aside, I’m quite happy with how she turned out. I repainted her face, and, like most of my rainbow LOLs, I went for a bit more of a creative eye than I usually do. I also painted on her tights, repainted her shirt, and the pompoms on her shoes. I added some glittery fabric paint to her cage skirt too.
