Pocket-Size Guys

Two pocket-size guys (sacredflamingheart and costumegoblin) and their enjoyment other pocket-size guys (and gals).

Things for Trade, Things We Want, and Things We Have


So I got two new things today.

One, found Scareitage at Tuesday Morning and picked up Skelita.

Two, found SS Ghoulia at a Kohl’s and someone had ripped the bottom of the box to steal only her shoes. I already had gotten one SS Ghoulia at Justice for making a custom OC from her accessories, but I’ve since then been craving to have a pair of the ribcage earrings and a pair of the bloodsplats. And a backup pair of those glasses… Well I asked the cashier if they could give me a damage discount, and she asked her nearby manager what discount is appropriate (I was anticipating the standard 10-15%), and he ended up giving her to me for two dollars. He could tell a) that the doll wasn’t getting sold in that condition and that if I didn’t buy it that it probably should get damaged out, and b) that it had been in the store for a while (since it rang up limited quantity it was half price in the system, and toys never ring up 50% off pre-coupons). Her left leg is kind of messed up because of how the person had to pull on her shoes to steal them, and Jace thinks the manager noticed that as well. I shall call her Twoulia, the Two-dollar Ghoulia. lol

Ugh Scareitage Skelita is such perfection that it hurts….. And all TM had was a ton of EAH (Briar, Blondie, Maddie, and Cerise) and then a Skelita and an Operetta. I like Operetta better seeing her in person, but I still’m not sold…

*sees pics of Hexiciah and makes a “hot dad” comment to Jace*

Jace: That was worth watching. I’m glad we got to watch that together. …You had me at “hot dad.”

I made a comment (to no one in particular) about how Sparky was totally Hot For Teacher so I feel ya man

#yes. hot dad. v.good  #i am sorry that i'm not sorry about making 'NOW KISS' jokes at the end between hexiciah and sparky  #i'll be good now 

Today marked the end of a months long hunt for Gigi. I also picked up a second Billy because my first one got a huge chip in his fading gradient paint within an hour of me having him out of the box despite how careful I was being with him… Costco was entirely too kind to me today.

So now, all I’m left pining for is a Slow-Moe and a Gilda. NONE of my Targets has the five-pack in yet. >;/

…Well, and I’m probably going to end up caving in and getting CB Twyla. The jumper isn’t as well made as I was hoping it would be, but I outright dislike NS Twyla save her shoes, and they’re identically cast… And I know myself better than to think I can get away with not obtaining that hot cocoa with the drowning ghost marshmallows….

So as far as stuff that’s going to come out, the waiting game now consists of….

Some new trademarks

On a whim I decided to check Trademarkia, and found a few possible MH or EAH related trademarks…

On Friday, August 15, 2014, a U.S. federal trademark registration number 86368017 was filed for QUILL TALYNTINO by MATTEL, INC. with the description DOLLS, DOLL CLOTHING AND DOLL ACCESSORIES.

On Friday, August 15, 2014, a U.S. federal trademark registration number 86368031 was filed for FINNEGAN WAKE by MATTEL, INC. with the description DOLLS, DOLL CLOTHING AND DOLL ACCESSORIES.

IF FINNEGAN WAKE IS NOT AN IRISH CHARACTER I AM GOING TO DEBAG SHANK SOMEONE

I am still REELING over the fact Finnegan Wake is RIDER. It’s so wonderful. So so so wonderful.

Please vote for Finnegan “Rider” Wake.

Disabled characters need representation.

I’m in a wheelchair myself, and seeing that Rider even existed as a character was so wonderful to me. And then my next thought was how badly I wanted him to be made into a doll, but immediately my brain quashed that optimism with an “oh, they’d never make a disabled character.” Then (even if it may have been unintentional for her to be perceived as one since she’s so patently a living stereotype) Vandala Doubloon was spoiled, and I thought to myself, “Well if they’ll make a prosthetic character, why can’t they make a wheelchair-bound character?” And I got even more down about it. Disabled people are so invisible in media, and I didn’t think things would change anytime soon.

But now he’s up for vote for release in 2015, and yet I’m seeing people ranting about how badly Quill and Gory need to win.

If you will remember back in 2010 when they put things up for vote the first time, it was Headless Headmistress, Wydona, and Scarah. ALL OF THEM got made. Two were SDCC exclusives, sure, but only initially—they’ve both also seen more widespread release since that. Just because Quill and Gory don’t win, doesn’t mean they won’t be made.

Gory needs to be made, and Quill is cute enough to be a great doll. I do agree both dolls need to be made. I’m in full support of making all backgrounders, especially the Belfry Prep and Werewolf Academy characters.

But Rider is a disabled character. With a wheelchair.

Gory would have the same cast as the CAM Vampire. We have three vampire girls already (Draculaura, Elissabat, and the CAM Vampire). And we have multiple “little sister” dolls now (Howleen, Twyla, and the grim reaper girl from Haunted), as well as several girl dolls with wings. We do not have a disabled character yet!! This is so important!

This tag always prides itself for its vocal adherence to supporting the representation of ethnicity, sexuality, body positivity, etc. This is the first time Mattel has really stepped up to the plate to let us prove we can put our money where our mouths are. They let us down once before, after promising us Grimmily-Anne. Make it known the MH fanbase wants Mattel to make it possible to celebrate ALL freaky flaws, that we’re ALL perfectly imperfect.

Don’t let Rider down, Tumblr MH fandom.

Last photos for now, just showing off something I did on a whim during a break a week ago while talking to my roommate. I Like the idea of Twyla’s fading limbs, how its like she’s supposed to fade into shadows? I just would have preferred the fade by darker, so I popped off their arms, hit them with layers of sealant and spray enamel, and painted on silver spider webs.

It was a really hasty experiment, but it turned out really cute. When I have time I’ll buff the arms to make the gradient smoother, but for what it is, it looks really cute.

While on his break yesterday my boyfriend sent me an idea for a Monster High character named Wilma Whately! She’s the daughter of the yog’sothoth, a Lovecraftian monster that’s a lot of slime, tentacles, eyes and mouths. I might go back later and make her a little more horrifying but I think this is nicely toned down for MH

"She’s used to the quiet country atmospphere of her home town, Dunwich, and is in general very shy. Though she is far more human than her father, under her clothes is a writhering mass of tentacles and slime. Because of this she usually wears long or baggy clothes and a sunhat to cover the fact that patches of her hair are tentacles. As yog’sothoth is master of gates, the inexperienced Wilma is but the victim of her own powers, often getting teleported around and (much to her exasperation) stuck between dimensions in parallel worlds. It gets a little hard for her to keep track of which dimension she’s in so sometimes she’ll get little details wrong about things that have never happened, leading people to believe she’s a bit of an airhead. Seeing her eldritch nature will render the viewer sightly insane for a short period. Her clothes carry polka dots and circle designs to signify the shape of her father. She’s very superstitious from growing up in Dunwich and is afraid of dogs."


AAAAAAAAAAA SHE IS PERFECT. DOES SHE HAVE A SISTER OR IS NO ONE SUPPOSED TO KNOW ABOUT THAT

I’m not unlucky—I was just written that way.
