你们好， 我叫 Jinafire 龙 和是中国人，可是住在美国。
Today I'll be reviewing 1.5 Jinafire dolls from Monster High. Sort of. Basically (as I mentioned in the Swim, Girl post a while back, it was driving me batty to have two of the same doll, so I stripped my less favorite of the two and donated her clothes to the other. The doll I've photographed is the Scaris version, as Scaremester Jinafire has been returned to her original box for safekeeping until further notice. I'm not sure if I want to sell her off (low demand for a nude doll like that), or turn her into a project (but what other less articulated doll is in need of a gold body with a tail?). If you happen to be in desperate need of a nekked dragon, I just might be your chick. (I'll totally trade for a naked Rochelle Goyle if she has the long hair with no bangs.)
Edit: found these low-quality pre-box-opening pictures on my iPad when I was cleaning out the camera roll. She is really cute as a comic. ^^
So Amazon drops off the box one night (too late for any good natural light photos, and let's face it, you're too excited to play with your first MH doll to wait to do the unboxing), so you pop her out and this is what you get. Lots of fun doodads.
But wait, there's more, because you ordered two!
The detail on the shoes are incredible. Scaremester is worth it just for the shoes. I cannot believe they carved such detailed little 獅 in the heels of a shoe. When I was in China, someone explained it to me as the male lion is the one with the ball and the female is the playful one... sorta. Actually they said the ball was there for a different reason, but imma keep this blog PG, k? In this case, the male is the one on the left shoe and duh, women are always right. Anyways, these shoes are the best thing I've seen come out of MH. I love them.
Quality? Overall these dolls are good playline quality. I swear this particular Jina body has a larger posterior than the other doll I own, because it is difficult to get her shirt on (and the unfinished edge in the back worries me I might cause damage), and pants are more difficult to fasten. It's a bit endearing to me, though. If you'll allow for a momentary trip down memory lane, allow me to state that man, I have had times in my life where my pants won't go past my calves. (And other times where I was being brung to outpatient clinic treatment at the hospital for being underweight.) Now my weight is average and haha I appreciate that my doll has for whatever reason a little extra rump.
All packed and ready to jet set (read: faceplant as soon as the wind picks up). Gotta hand it to MH. Forget the stands, these dolls can practically walk on their own.
Ugh, school drools.
Yes, I do have like a bazillion joints.
When we returned to my room, Jina couldn't help but show off her shoes to the new girl, who also has some pretty snazzy kicks. Heh, foreshadowing. Guess who my next MH guest will be!
And it wouldn't be a blog post without Yui. She's sporting some adorable Mary Janes from Dollb on Etsy. I love Dollb. Their customer relations are sublime, and they've always been more than willing to help me. I've got another pair of shoes and some socks from them, which Yui will show off as soon as her new outfit comes in the mail!
Happy weekend everybody!
Xoxo for now,
