Overall I am very happy with the choice to only collect Venus, Rochelle, and Skelita. All of their recent and upcoming releases are wonderful. Scaritage Skelita is just about the cutest damn thing I have ever seen, the flower crown is absolutely perfect and the dress is wonderful, not to mention the fantastic accessories. I want more Skelita dolls but I’ve just been so impressed by all three of the current dolls that she has that I’m happy if she has fewer dolls as long as they’re all this well-designed. Each one fits perfectly within her style and reveals a little bit more about her and just. I cannot say enough good things about Skelita. I just need to get my hands on a Scaris doll.
Venus is looking great. Zombie Shake breaks my heart a little with how gorgeous it is. The faceup is just breathtaking, the dark eyes looking kind of sunken in and rather creepy. Coffin Bean looks suuuuper cute, I love the curly hair, though I do wish she had a cuter mug like the other girls. And I Heart Fashion is just so perfect. I like Venus for her punk look and that pack is FINALLY cashing in on the style. I want it. I want it so bad.
I’m slightly less enthusiastic about Rochelle, but still pretty jazzed. Zombie Shake looks sooo good, like Venus, the doll is just slightly creepy and I love it. Ghoul Talk disappoints me because of Catrine, but I love love love the pastels, the stain glass dress, and the 1950s sweetheart ponytail. The aqua lipstick, as I’ve said, especially calls to me. I’ve always had this weird fascination with blue lips, idk. The 2-pack with Garrott looks fantastic, because, well, GARROTT, but Rochelle also looks amazing. The dress is a similar silhouette as the basic doll, but the lace along the top gives it a different feel, the skirt’s actually a bit shorter and I love the print… overall it just feels a bit flirtier than the basic doll, which is great for a ‘date’ set. AND AQUA HAIR IT LOOKS SO GOOD ON HER. The faceup is subtle, but it works. Again, I’ve just got this ‘sweetheart’ vibe from it. The only thing I don’t like is the hat. Were it a little fascinator, not unlike Art Class Skelita’s headband, I’d like it more, but as-is, it feels tacky and a bit too couture for an otherwise sweet and simple outfit. THAT SAID, still love the doll, absolutely getting it.
Just wish I didn’t have to get the Catrine, but there’s always trading and selling.
Honestly I was put off by the head adornment too at first, until I noticed that Garrott has a rose for her. And then I realized the possible implication is that he made her that accessory for their date. He -was- a skilled fashion designer, n’est-ce pas?
