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

Finally put some simple colors on the Avea Trotter drawing I did a little while ago. Drawn a day or two after I got her. I feel like I’m getting better at drawing these dolls. Maybe.

Ahhh, now that Comic Con is over, I can post the picture that I had the beautiful speak-the-name give to garrettsander!! Thank you so much for all you do, Garrett, and for Monster High in general! My time with it has been amazing, and it’s been such a great creative outlet.

if every single monster high movie starts out with it being a new school year

how old are they by now?

How long have you been fifteen years old? …I’ve been fifteen for a very long time…

Hey what if a “new school year” is monthly by the full moon for monsters?

But really. The ghosts thing. It bothers me. 

I can’t find it now but there were those ‘monster high comics’ that made the rounds on tumblr that were not actually about the franchise, but there was one with a ghost kid and someone asked if he was born to two ghosts or if he was a dead kid and the ghost kid started crying and asked why would anyone ask that, and I WONDER THAT ABOUT MH.

Mainly Johnny Spirit. Was he a ghost to start with, or did he actually die while in detention?

Not including the CAMs, Jace and I have dolls of 34 different characters. And no fewer than 67 total unboxed dolls, with around ten still in boxes on top of this figure.

To do this moving sale purge, Jace is urging me to pick my favorite five dolls.

This is excruciating and I don’t know if I can do this. I know I can reobtain them later when I’m in a better place, but there’s an anxiety there that I actually can’t. Like how Nefera never has seen the light of a new release and stays expensive…

'There's a lot I can live without' is my entire approach to MH, honestly. Like, I have the weirdest form of excitement about these dolls. It's not 'MUST HAVE' but more 'wow these are really cool designs and I like the pastels'. I have no intention of owning ANY of these, but they're still nice to look at. It actually makes it easier for me to get excited, because I don't feel any of that completionist or even brand-loyalty drive to buy any, so I can just like the fact they exist, and save my completionism — as well as criticisms — for the three ghouls I decided to commit to. 

Just… explaining my general approach here, I guess. In case anyone was wondering why I don’t really say anything negative about most of the dolls, since I have no intention to get them, I don’t really feel any disappointment. 

Chiming in that I hope ghosts are explained as well, though. The canon info as far as webisodes/movies go is very… vague, and that bugs me.

I used to have a bad completionist mentality about MH. I had to have one doll of each character. If I doubled up somewhere, I picked one of the two and used the “spare” for a custom. It’s one of the reasons having to return my Nefera stung so much. Up until FCA! she was the only character I didn’t have a doll of (adding having to return Gigi to that as well as not yet convincing myself I *need* Honey or Clawdia). Slowly, that’s changed, though. I used to be ridiculously stingy about getting duplicate dolls, but now the squick of ending up with duplicates is driven by multi-pack exclusives… Once FCA! came out I started realizing that the only completionist mentality that meant anything to me was collecting all the dudes.

At any rate I’m finally to the point I need to purge my collection a bit, prune down to the ones that genuinely mean anything to me. Anything I’m not keeping is going in the moving funds sale. Too bad I don’t have that many NIB dolls, my collection would be worth three months’ rent to some folks. =/

i think maybe one person following this account knows exactly why i need porter geiss

even if i don’t like his character i need his doll

i need to make ceruss

i need to make ceruss or shattuck or calaver or lepidochro or

aaaaaaugh *SEXUALLY…

Hah, I agree, even if I do make fun of his design. It’s a great look, love that shade of green. And tagger ghost, yessss

y’made fun of it? *poker face*

I may think it looks a little bit like those sexy Spongebob humanizations that were floating around

I love the design, I don’t think it’s bad or stupid or anything (nor were those humanizations badly designed, just OOC), I just can’t unsee it :|a

…stares forever at it :I ………..Guh just Ceruss has undercut dreads ughhhhhh I’ve always wanted an -excuse- to do yarn-dreads on somebody, and he’s meta so I can justify him having greenish tinged skin even though I’m going to be diminishing it with a topcoat of skintone, as long as Porter isn’t translucent like Tang!CAM or transparent like Ice!CAM… Idk maybe if he’s like Tang!CAM the disparity of opacity would imply a translucency to his skin condition. I’ll have to wait until we know more about him…

#galen and torber need more stalkers to hang out with 

New Monster High “Haunted” Line

Aside from Porter and Twyla, I am very not into any of this. Very excited that a lot of it happened, but it’s a ton of stuff I can live without. The amount of screaming flailing hyper-death aneurysm everyone in the tag’s been having over the total volume of reveals is equal to the amount of screaming flailing hyper-death aneurysm I’ve been having over Porter alone. I just can’t get into the Haunted stuff without the explanation as to WHY EVERYONE IS SUDDENLY DEAD. The designs just aren’t hitting me either. I might even fall out of love with the Twyla, considering I was smitten with Coffin Bean Twyla until I saw actual photos…

#i have no idea what you're talking about  #uhhh... 

I really hope that “Invisi-Billy not being a ghost but everyone thinks he is” plays into Haunted somehow.
