I saw the free clinic doctor today. I have to take Lamictal. I'm way too tired to explain why or what it is but I'm excited to start it. (I've been up since 5:30 this morning... couldn't sleep.)

I also went to Toys R Us afterwards with Boyfriend, and they had both Operetta AND the Skull Shores black and white Frankie (I had a coupon, even)! I haven't been updating with my new dolls because that makes for boring posts, so here's the current list: cut! )

So, if you're keeping track at home, that's 17, including Bee and her little styrofoam body. All I'm missing is an Abbey, a Cleo, and Rochelle Goyle! And Venus and Robecca when they come out, I suppose. But that's it for the rest of the year! Nice.

the end.

What's new with me:

Boyfriend got a car! His own car! A white 2008 Sentra. I love it, it has the sweetest face.

I got a Skull Shores Draculaura. Her hand was messed up. I e-mailed Mattel... and they're sending me a new one! Free! She'll be here in 3-7 days. Mattel has the best customer service, I swear.

What's new with you guys?

I forgot to mention, I got Dead Tired Draculaura, making her my 12th doll (if we count Bee as a whole doll). I moved them all to my bigger dresser.

I wanted this Draculaura very badly... her makeup is so radically different and her little sticky uppy pigtails are so cute! Plus they're making a new version soon so I wanted to make sure I got this one before it disappeared. BOYFRIEND IS THE BEST.

The list is now:

Skull Shores Frankie Stein
An Abbey Bominable, idc which
A Cleo... there's a new fancy masquerade Cleo coming out and I think that's the one I want
Rochelle Goyle
Venus McFlytrap
Howleen Wolf

it's been so loooong livejournal I am sorry. I've got Cupid, so my life is pretty complete.

The list of dolls I need is now:

An Abbey (don't care which)
A Cleo (I'll take a cheap Cleo but I'd like the newer one coming out later this year with the over the top gown)
The Howleen/Clawdeen 2pack because HOWLEEN
Operetta (there will be more Operettas coming out but idk I think I want the first one)
Venus McFlytrap
Rochelle Goyle
Robecca Steam
Dead Tired Draculaura (should be soon!)

I think that's it. I own 11 now (10.5 if we count Bee as half a doll): Bee, Draculaura, Killer Style Draculaura, Frankie, Dawn of the Dance Frankie, Killer Style Frankie, Cupid, Gloom Beach Clawdeen, Skull Shores Lagoona, Ghoulia, and Spectra. (Molly gave me Cupid and KS Frankie and Draculaura EVERYONE TELL HER HOW GREAT SHE IS BECAUSE SHE'S GREAT).

Also they make Lalaloopsies EVEN SMALLER now and sell them in ~mystery~ blind bags (they're called Micro Lalaloopsy)


it's just a doll shaped lump of peach

I thought this was a mistake, but nope. Right on the bag they advertise instead of an adorable character you could just get a naked, faceless lump of peach.

Boyfriend said he'll paint her so I asked him to paint her into a Draculaura. I'll post a picture (probably on tumblr) when it's done.

Also I have a great relationship guyssssssss I never talk about it but IT'S PRETTY GREAT.

oh yeah we baked cookies they were pretty good too. AND WE MADE A PILLOW FORT IT WAS THE BEST THING.

Still no Cupid. But her *official* release is supposed to be the end of January, so she should be out in much larger quantities very soon.

Boyfriend says he'll buy me a create-a-monster pack if I clean my room. I know this sounds childish, but I'm the kind of hoarder who needs motivation to keep her surroundings from being condemmed, which, again, sounds terrible, but I never said I was mentally stable, did I? I know a lot of people don't believe me when I say these things, but I'm not lying. Still, it's motivation to do some things that need to be done, especially since my parents want to have my cousin's long-term boyfriend look at my window (there's a hole under it) and see if they can fix it. There shouldn't be holes in my walls, guys.

As I said on Tumblr, since one of the heads doesn't have a wig, I'ma tie a ribbon around her head and let her be a badass bald chick. It'll be fun. We'll have to sculpt another styrofoam torso for her.

I originally wanted the set with the dragon monster thing and the pink wig, but I've decided the vampire set has the prettier face, plus the blue head (supposed to be a sea monster) has a really unique nose, it's so cute. I am excited.

We also discovered today that eating at Outback is as cheap as eating at Chili's. This thrilled us more than I can express.

It's cold here. There was ice on the windshield! Well, not ice-ice, but it was a bit slushy. I wore my birthday present winter jacket. My uncle is still visiting. I think he might visit a bit too long, my grandparents are too old for 2 week visitors. Her brother left already but then again he always stays in a hotel.

Radcakes was magnificent on SNL.

I couldn't sleep so instead I sat and tried to fiddle with Bee some more. Moar toothpicks was, indeed, the answer. I stuck two more in her neck, then one in each styrofoam thigh so I could stick it to her styrofoam torso and her legs wouldn't keep flopping off. (Her arms don't seem to need any extra help staying in her dress). I took Original Recipe Frankie's stand (Frankie is currently posed sitting so she doesn't need it) and stuck her on it. After a lot of careful fiddling, she's standing! I also colored the styrofoam bits that show with a yellow bic marker and she looks tons better. Her head still lolls backwards so she looks like she's looking up all the time. It's cute if you're looking down on her, but up high on my dresser she looks kind of silly (I've squashed it down as much as possible so she doesn't look quite so weird). Still cute though. She shall be the Luna Lovegood of my dolls, since she looks so dreamy and has gigantic bee eyes. I think now that she has a body (sort of) and is standing and has an official My Monster High Dolls Friendship Bracelet I can officially count her as my 7th doll. I'll take a picture sometime, maybe after I fix her up some more.

I wish I could sleep. I shall try now.

ivyette: (Grr - From deadjournal)
so, hi.

Sunday was my grandma's surprise 80th birthday party that we've been planning for weeks. Her brother flew down to surprise her but she didn't want to go to the restaurant so he had to go to her house and be like HI I'M HERE SO NOW YOU HAVE TO GO. Ha. Food was good, family was interesting as always, all was well.

And I did get that Frankie I mentioned hiding in Ross. And somehow I missed that she is apparently from Spain, and her box is almost entirely in Spanish. I wish I could say that I'm just that ~fluent~ in Spanish that it doesn't seem odd to me, but I am definitely not. I didn't know until we were waiting to check out and Boyfriend was like "why is this in Spanish" and I was like "wat." Apparently I was just spellbound by one of the most perfect dolls that there ever was (the most perfect dolls in the world are Draculaura, Cupid, and this Frankie).

She is so perfect, you guys :') My two Frankies are happy together. No Cupid yet, but we did see her label on a shelf in walmart, so. I'ma take the item number from the website and demand to be given my doll finally once and for all. The wishlist is now:

-Cupid (my soul craves this this isn't a want or a wish this is a need)
-Skull Shores Lagoona
-Skull Shores Frankie
-Operetta's been sort-of released and she is AMAZING holy God NEED HER TOO so much money will be spent :(
-A Cleo (I don't really care which, if it's a cheap one fine by me)
-An Abbey
-Dead Tired Draculaura BECAUSE SHE IS PRECIOUS and I've been looking at her soft eye paint and screw it, I am in love. I will admit it.
-The Killer Style Frankie and Draculaura. Yep, still.
-The create-a-monster pack with the pink werewolf/vampire whatever it is thing SHE'S CUTE OKAY.

We tried to make the modelling clay for Bee's body, but that clay isn't really suitable, so we made a body out of styrofoam. And by we I mean Boyfriend made it and his dog Snuggles and I supervised. Actually Snuggles just went to bed. I didn't want him to eat styrofoam. She can't really sit up so I'm working on finding a way to prop her up. I've stuck a toothpick in her neck so her head won't fall off so maybe the solution is MOAR TOOTHPICKS? Maybe? We shall see!

I'm still playing sims, just not my Marauder legacy sims rn.

literally dug up a bunch of quarters to buy the Dawn of the Dance Frankie. She was in Ross for much cheaper than she should be but I was short some money so when we go out I am going to go back and find her and get the doll I have wanted for MONTHS, MONTHSSSSSS but was sure I could never have. And then find Cupid, if she's in the area.

And then make a body for Bee. It will be a very dolly evening.

Maybe someday I will talk about something else but today, today is not that day.

-5:56 AM
ivyette: (Beatles)
so I went to Walmart to try to find Cupid.

no Cupid. I checked the website and one of the few places allegedly stocking them was another nearby Walmart!

so we went.

there was nothing. There was an unhelpful girl and a helpful one. I appreciate both of them trying, don't get me wrong. But Second Girl said "...sometimes the website lies." I could tell she felt bad.

At that Walmart I did get a Liv doll powder blue trench coat that comes with pink and white striped arm warmers that I have been wanting for SO LONG (I didn't even realize it came with the arm warmers). It was on sale for 3 bucks! So there's something. At the first Walmart I got a bee girl create-a-monster add-on pack. As we've discussed these dolls have no torsos or upper legs or upper arms, so we have to find a way to make a body for it out of modelling clay or something. Her face is so, so cute, it's way different from the other face molds and I'm happy I got her, because I really wanted her, but. She's not a whole doll, and she isn't my Cupid. As we drove home from the second Walmart we passed a third and were going to check, but somehow all the power was out from second Walmart up the road for MILES. We'd also wanted to get some IHOP but somehow the power was out everydamnwhere. I guess the whole town went black in sadness for me.

I had a really, really lovely night besides, though. I was just in such a happy mood. We get to see each other tomorrow again too for New Year's! :D

in conclusion, Cupid.

I seem to have fallen into a needy, clingy, chatty phase.

As far as physical objects go, I would like to have:

-A pink Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. Someday.
-Monster High dolls, in order of most wanted: Cupid (well, duh), Skull Shores Lagoona (and no other), Operetta (when she's available), Skull Shores Frankie, if she really truly does exist, because she's black and white like the SDCC exclusive one I've lusted after, a Cleo, it doesn't matter which, I just want her for completion's sake but it's so hard to find one with well-painted eyes. Plus I love the Cleo/Ghoulia friendship and I want them to be together. And Cleo will add another doll-of-color which I feel I need because Clawdeen is like the only non-white doll I own, Barbies included, and that's just wrong.

I also really, really want a Create-a-Monster set. I forget if I've mentioned, but Boyfriend promised to make me a torso for the set of limbs/head that doesn't have one. Plus I'll have to buy her a wig, but Liv wigs are expensive and really not worth it. So maybe I'll tie a ribbon around her head and make her a badass bald chick.

But Cupid's been released, guys! Cupid! In Walmart! And she is way, way prettier than she was in the prototype picture. She's so much sweeter!

also I need moar sims.

this has been a greedy, selfish post.

-11:16 PM
ivyette: (Sailor Moon Cherries)
I caved and bought Clawdeen a Bratz outfit, since her being in a bathing suit this time of year makes me sad. It's cute on her! It even has little suspenderssssss.

Also no word yet on the doll I'm looking forward to like I am my eventual someday wedding, Cupid. Oh, Cupid.

Let's discuss Cupid. I have drawn a diagram. 1 picture )

so what else is new.

ivyette: (Hello Kitty)
so I wanted to write a big entry about how PEOPLE GIVE ME STUFF



but it just seems so materialistic but

you all know that if you buy me shit


especially if it is the greatest most thoughtful things because that gives me the gift of knowing you pay attention to me

and that is really the best gift of all. except for the Hello Kitty makeup. I didn't cry right away but I definitely did later on in the evening. I just thought about it and then sat there and cried for a little bit.

I also bought myself a Target exclusive Christmas mini Lalaloopsy named Holly Sleighbells, and then in Walmart I found SPECTRA. Guys. Spectra is a Monster High doll who is SO RARE. She tends to be scalped at unfair, unreasonably high prices, and is often impossible to find in stores without calling the store first and stalking them when they get their shipments in BUT SHE WAS THERE and now I own her. With my own money, even! I already made her a little friendship bracelet like the other 4. I also made a bracelet for the mini Lalaloopsy which, I will be honest, was not easy.

Then Molly's sending me dolls and Em is sending me Sims and guys. guys


this has been a post.

ivyette: (Gwen - Secrets (From deadjournal))
So I never post here about my actual life despite this being my journal, and all. So bscly I have gotten through (I don't want to say "over" because that trivializes it for me and for everyone else who suffers) whatever bout of depression I had had for about a month there. (seriously, it was so awful.) But I feel mostly normal now! Except now I have a month of laziness to pick up after. My room looks like a warzone and I still don't really feel up to it :(

I have four Monster High dolls now: Draculaura and Frankie, plus the Gloom Beach version of Clawdeen, which is cheaper and comes with less but is still really worth it, and the basic Ghoulia, who is PERFECT. Like all nerdy girls want to believe they're Ghoulia. She wears awesome glasses and has awesome hair and wears a piano key belt and a shirt with cherries and a cute necklace and fishnet arm warmers and has knee-hight black, white, and red converse sneakers that, by the way, are like 6 inch heels. And pink zipper-pull earrings. And a diary with a bonus bookmark! eeeeeee. Clawdeen's 80s-looking rainbow cheetah print bathingsuit is a one-piece with a shorts-looking bottom with a cute (sadly attached) belt, and a removable also 80s-looking pink and black striped top. She has 4 earrings: pink, purple, blue, and green. And her hair is streaked with purple! Therefore she is cooler than the other Clawdeen I thought I wanted. Her hair is so frizzy I had to put it in pigtails with elastic bands from her packaging but that's okay. She also came with sunglasses, a frisbee, and a postcard. Oh, and shoes, too, and a brush and a stand, because Monster High dolls come with everything they need. Ghoulia has a stand and brush too, and also a purse that looks like a cassette tape, and her little owl named Sir Hoots-a-Lot who clips on her arm. Oh and did I mention Ghoulia has sparkly eyeshadow like Draculaura? They could have totally skimped on her eye makeup because of her giant glasses, but nope.

We went to Toys R Us last week and I spotted a single Ghoulia behind all the other dolls. Then Boyfriend confessed he'd already ordered one, so being the kind and benevolent person I am, I tucked her back in the back, where I'm pretty sure someone had deliberately hidden her. I hope whoever it was went back and found her! So that night I got the only Clawdeen they had. Then this weekend I got my Ghoulia! So now I have four and I think that's plenty, for now. I put Clawdeen in a pair of Barbie jeans that are super old over her bathing suit, because it's cold! She looks kind of 90s with her little belly shirt and giant baggy jeans.

I Ghoulia and Clawdeen the little bracelets I'd made for them forever ago so now all four of them have matching friendship bracelets. ...yeah, in my spare time I make doll bracelets. This is my life.

Anyway, I also tasted lobster and cried, but I ate a whole shrimp without gagging!

I've been taking a multivitamin (with hair supplement) for a few months now, and also started taking extra (completely safe, don't worry) hair supplement. The result has been my eyelashes are growing like weeds. I know I've mentioned it before, but now even my bottom lashes are getting into it and there's a definite noticable change in how they look without any makeup. This is important news, okay. Better I talk about this than depressing things, right? Also my bangs are getting longer. Which isn't a surprise, because hair does grow, but still, I'm happy. I really hate my bangs :(

I forget if I even mentioned this but my grandmother tripped and broke her foot. She's getting all gloom and doom like ~this is the beginning of the end~ but really, she didn't lose her balance because she's old or got dizzy or fainted or anything, she just tripped. She's being stubborn and not really letting her foot heal properly, but I hope she does soon because diabetics can lose their feet if they aren't careful.

anyways have I mentioned here that Boyfriend makes me play Magic with him? (and I like it?) I should document that in case future Ivy comes to read about her life. (hi, self! HAVE YOU HAD BABIES YET?)

I still collect Hello Kitty stuff too but they don't have any in the Target dollar section so my collecting has dwindled. Which is just as well because I don't need to hoard any more. I did get a tiny package of stickers from the cards/games section at Walmart though (Boyfriend was buying moar magic!11).

oh! Walmart had their Halloween costumes on sale so I got a Draculaura outfit. It fits because I'm short. I'd worried that I'd be too fat, but it fits! So now I have a costume for next year, assuming I can find pink boots by then. Heh.

oh, one last thing, I hope I get one of those cheap mini Lalaloopsy dolls for my birthday. HAPPY BIRTH MONTH TO ME~~ because as you all know I'm obnoxious about my birthday and I celebrate the whole month because I am obnoxious.

These are thumbnails. Click to make REALLY HUGE versions magically appear. Also this site has ads so you'll want to use some sort of adblock. You can see Draculaura's little bracelet I made her! And the "bangles" that are really just the rings you use to identify electric toothbrushes.

-10:01 PM
ivyette: (Hello Kitty)
So, today I got Frankie. She and Draculaura are sitting on a little doll-sized pillow next to me.
idk why, but these dolls are so amazing to me. The fact that something this stylized is doing well and is supported by Mattel? So fabulous. And each one has her own face sculpt! Frankie's face is much more angular and long than Draculaura's round face and smaller chin. Target's had a sale for a little while, so I ran in and snapped her up (with Boyfriend's money, of course). I had wanted the Dawn of the Dance Frankie, but they didn't have her, which made my decision easier because I was torn between Original Frankie and Dance Frankie. Decision made for me! Done.

I almost spent my own money later in Wal*Mart on a Bratz dress, but it was strapless, nearly 5 dollars, and not worth it, especially since the size might be off. Hopefully I can get over to a dollar store of some sort and buy some cheap knockoff Barbie clothes and then bring out my trusty sewing kit and try to alter them to fit. We shall see!

I mended a Barbie skirt that, while big, fits their hips if I don't mind a gap in the back. It had a lot of stray threads and the velcro was coming off. Then I went cross-eyed and made a teeny weeny beaded bracelet for Draculaura. Now that Frankie is here, I'll make one for her too. She already has a bracelet on one arm! So perfect.

Anyway, all my sims have graduated from college! So you'll get a giant college spam soon. I haven't given up on sims updates! They've just been really boring and not worth posting. I moved them into new houses, and tried something new with some of the couples and I'm really excited about it.

In real life news I've actually started to prepare a resume and I am not happy about it. Also, I hate fall. Go away fall. Bring back my summer :(

Scorpius tries to be like his father and it blows up in his face. oh dear )

in other news Boyfriend bought me the Draculaura I wanted and have been lusting over on tumblr for like decades. She's sitting next to me right now. Tomorrow she's gonna try on Sailor Moon's clothes.
