Over the weekend I decided to drop by my local Kmart to check out everyone’s favourite isle, and I was very impressed.
They had restocked and had Dot Dead Gorgeous, Dance class, Ghouls Rule, Cams (no harpy or mermaid unfortunately), Ghoul’s Alive and Scaris. No Picture Day dolls but one can hardly complain. I was actually surprised by the Dance Class dolls, I had pegged that line as ‘skippable’ along with DDG and found myself really liking Robecca and Howleen. I think’ll have to rethink my stance and pick them up eventually.
I of course didn’t go home empty handed. My Kmart had all four of the basic Scaris dolls although I wasn’t overly taken by any. Judging by the numbers on the shelf my guess is there are more than one Abbs and Ghoulia to a case, and maybe Duece and Draculaura are single packed.
I decided on Deuce as his numbers seem really low and male dolls seem to be unpopular in my area. Either he is going to be all over the place or incredibly hard to find in the future – it’s a hard one to call. At first glance he seems almost identical to his original counter part, with the only major difference is he has a black earring, when the original has a white one.
I actually do really like his shoes, mostly because they seem so…Death Eater-like. He also has a man purse. I wish it had snakes on it, not just the snake-skin straps. What it does have on it which can’t be seen in this picture is the monster high skull with snakes on it’s head.
Besides Rochelle, the other two familiar dolls in the deluxe Scaris Line are Frankie and Clawdeen. Frankie looks awesome, but I really could only pick one and Rochelle’s Eiffel Tower dress won out. The deluxe dolls also come with a suitcase, and the handles on them retract in and out and they have working wheels. Rochelle’s sports a fleur-de-lis and is in her signature grey and pink. Her entire look is topped off by that adorable hat. I did notice this particular doll has eyes that are a good 50% bigger than the original I have and unlike on my original doll her green streaks are a lot more evenly spread through her hair.
Rochelle’s shoes are pink and fleur-de-lis themed. Personally I find them a bit busy looking, but if someone gave me a pair of these kicks in my size I wouldn’t make too many complaints about it!
Lucky last we have Skelita Calaveras the sugar skeleton from Hexico. She’s so pretty, and my crappy camera doesn’t do her the justice she deserves. Her body is completely skeletal which means separate ribs, protruding pelvic bones and her lower back is all spine. She comes packaged with a plastic dress form which helps her display, as with out it her clothes look like they just hang off her. Her knees are really stiff and hard to bend at first, but with gentle pressure in the right places they will eventually. Her skirt is a rainbow spider web design and her suitcase has a sugar skull design on it. She is my favourite of this small haul by far.
No Jina-fire, she wasn’t there. Either someone beat me to her or just as likely she hasn’t been released here yet. I will have to keep a look out.
