Watched the new Star Wars movie… I’m really more of a Trekkie (and always will be!), but…dude… I want a Rey doll. Like, so bad.
Do they exist? Not really. I’ve searched everywhere; action figures are coming, but they have molded clothes/hair… I want a DOLL. /frustrated.
In the meantime I’ve tried to content myself by buying up the Amidala/Padme doll outfits I don’t own yet. They are so pretty…
I really don’t understand. Star Trek has dolls– true dolls, with clothing made of cloth (not molded!) and real hair that can be styled, etc…pretty sure they have one for every character (I have Garak in my possession right now; I refuse to take him out of the box). Why, other than those white-faced Amidala dolls, can I not find any Star Wars dolls?
So (terrible pun approaching!) I will be Force’d to make one myself.
Her look is pretty simple— I think even my meager sewing skills could manage– so it just comes down to settling on the perfect doll with the perfect coloration and articulation and not allowing myself to convince myself to buy the super-expensive special figure that is beautiful but probably not worth it. I mean, it costs more than most of my BJDs and I would probably play with it less, so…
In the meantime, I have other projects to work on while musing over the Future Rey– should I make one? Should I hold out and see if they make anything close to what I want that I can modify? I haven’t seen any dolls that are close yet…
I’ve been working on an idea for a superhero/alien comic in my head; it’s something I do pretty often, but I’m particularly fond of this one. Ironically, the character I’m most attached to goes by the name Rae (short for Na’Rae); I didn’t even realize the similarity until a couple of days ago when Brother Two pointed it out as I was verbally brainstorming… but I’m too attached to the name to change it now, so it’ll have to do. Anyway, I want to make a doll version of her, and I’ve ordered what I think will be the perfect one– Collector’s Edition Draculaura /cue awkward silence. Yes. Yes I am really taking a fancy collector’s doll and turning her into a rendition of my own personal superheroine. Her skintone is (strangely enough) pretty close to how I imagine Rae, and her hair will be perfect once restyled. I’m going to totally make her outfit from scratch, though. As for her shoes… MH Big Sister shoes might fit, so I’ll go through and see what’s available…it doesn’t have to be fancy.
I also have been (dabbling) with light customization to pass the time– specifically, rebodying my Liccas; I managed to find adequate skintone matches for two of them today:
The blonde is Akiko and the ‘snow Miku’ is Miyuki. I still have two more to rebody, but finding good matches for them is proving very difficult -_-”
Well, I’m back from a short jaunt up to visit my family…and arrived home to basically the rest of the packages I was waiting on. I figure I’ll go through and review all my new stuffz… because I have time, and because of some of these definitely had issues!
- Frozen Dolls– Classic and Frozen Fever Editions (Disney Store)
- Way Too Wonderland Maddie and Apple
- Art Class and Coffin Bean Robecca Steam
- Amidala Dolls (Bought for their Outfits)
- Galaxxxy Jenny, BYBY Clawdeen, Getting Fairest Raven Queen
- Ashlynn/Hunter, FdC Clawdeen, Lorna McNessie

So… shouldn’t have any more packages coming, really. I have two left in transit that are running a little late, and my first MoC layaway will be paid off at the end of this month, so that may be arriving soon-ish. Other than that, I’m going to try to buy some actually useful stuff the next couple of months, and maybe track down the WtW girls and EAH Deerla in person (supporting local stores and all that)…otherwise I’ll just do an Amazon order and call it good.
Other than that–
Catch y’all later! 🙂
