first, I really appreciate your comments about my repaintings, you told me a lot you like how I give her a sweeter touch, but also I've read too many comments saying their factory makeup and clothes make them look like bitches, sluts, whores etc (and not only monster high, also bratz and barbie dolls). and I have to say I completely disagree.
Companies make llamative dolls with a lot of colors because they want to sell, and it's easier to sell a glamurous doll than a natural doll that looks like any girl you can find walking in the street. They know how to make buisness, and they do it perfectly.
Now, the image they give:
a lot of people say that kind of dolls aren't appropiated for little girls. I don't know what they mean exactly with little girls, but as I know the monster high dolls have like 1600 years (except Frankie, who is 16 years old, but I don't know if there's more exceptions), what translated into human years is 16 years. A 16 years old girl isn't very "little" to me, it's actually a teenager, a person who is developing her sexuality, menstruates and already have breasts. With this I mean they seems to be made for teenage girls and not little girls, and I'm used to see how teenagers wear makeup and sexy clothes, with or without dolls at home. So I don't really think they are a bad influence for girls, I don't think dolls have a message saying "dress like me and be a bitch", it's more like companies dress and makeup their dolls like actual teenagers to be sure they will sell them.
Also, as I've said to people before, makeup and clothes doesn't make a girl being a bitch, it's her attitude.
A doll is something beautiful, and if there wasn't monster high dolls I couldn't repaint them.
Monster high dolls are really original and the best plastic dolls I've ever seen:Their face:
they have the most beautiful factions you can find on a plastic dolls (little and cute nose, big cute eyes, big but not exagerated lips, and a lot of different skin and hair tones) They are jointed:
this is probably what impressed me the most at first when I saw them. I love to have dolls like photography models and that was the main reason why I started buying BJDs, but as probably you know they are too expensive to buy lots of them fast. But monster high dolls are beautiful and you can make them pose as you want, so they are an amazing a a lot cheaper alternative to BJDs. Monster themed:
this was incredibly original! everybody was used to fashion dolls, popular dolls made for "corny girls", but monsters?? that was fucking awesome!!! honesty I though they were going to fail completely in Spain, because people here is still too closed minded, and monster dolls looks like something for geek and marginated girls, because they are original and different (don't get me wrong, I'm saying this with all my pride because I'm a geek and marginated girl, and I LOVE IT), but they ended being a total success and I'm really happy about it, because I can easily buy MH dolls in a lot of shops from my city
Monster high dolls are amazing, and I wish they have existed when I was little because I hated dolls, and I'm sure they would have changed my mind and make me feel proud for being different, instead of ashamed.
