New Girls in Town

I'd like to introduce you all to the three newest Moreville residents.

From left to right they are Hannah, Julia and Jessie. Hannah is the 2015 Birthday Wishes doll. Julia is one of the new City Shine dolls, and Jessie is from the previous City Shine collection.

Wave to the nice people ladies. Thank you. As you can see, they've all been re-bodied.

Oh, and that's Tim waving from the next table. I don't think the lady he's with appreciates the fact that he's been admiring these three since they sat down.

Looks like Tim isn't the only one admiring the new ladies.

I wasn't going to get Jessie (blond City Shine) because I'm not crazy about sideways glancers. They're harder to photograph and position right for the story lines. But Walmart had her on clearance, and I couldn't resist. After re-bodying and re-dressing her, I had a change of heart. She's just beautiful! Hannah (Birthday Wishes) was a gift from Marianne. Julia (City Shine Redhead) came from Amazon. I had her on my wish list for awhile, and when they dropped her price to $19.99, I snapped her right up. I never could resist a good sale. So two major price drops and a gift. I must be living right. :-)

A Quick Review

I finally broke down and purchased the new Tris Insurgent doll. I wasn't going to get her, but when I saw her in Target she finally "spoke" to me. Her short hair makes her look cute and sassy, and she'll be a perfect addition to my college kids.

Here she is deboxed.

A close-up view.

I really hate the fact that her arms don't bend.

Her legs bend though. I don't understand why Mattel made the first Tris doll fully articulated and not this one.

I rebodied her on the first Tris' body. The skin tone isn't a perfect match, but it's very close. She'll be Tris' sister, tattoos and all. I don't know her name yet.

Tris and her sister wound up at Bella Donna's for lunch after a successful visit to Dr. Carlyle.

I think Tris' sister will blend in very well with the other students at Moreville College. I'm not sure what she'll study, but the college has many different programs for her to choose from. She's very smart, so she'll do well in whatever course of study she decides on. :-)

The Double Date

After Arty got back from the tech convention, he, Lauren, Cameron and Adaline went out for dinner at Bella Donna's. He knew Cameron liked Adaline a lot and didn't want to do anything that would embarrass his brother in front of her. But unexpected things have a way of happening whenever Arty is around...

I hope they remember to take plenty of water with them as well. It'll help counteract the dehydrating effects of the wine. Of course, all four of them are seasoned wine drinkers, so I'm sure they'll go prepared. Maybe they'll bring back some souvenir glasses - if Arty doesn't accidentally break them that is. :-)

Tag, I'm It!

I've been tagged by my great friend Vanessa of Van's Doll Treasures for World Doll Day. I know her post on this was almost a month ago, but I've had so much going on lately, this is the first chance I've had to go back into Moreville.

The rules of the tag are:

1. List my three favorite dolls from the ones I got last year.
2. List three dolls from my wishlist.
3. Tag five people to do the same.

My three favorites? A no-brainer. Dynamite Girls London Calling Cruz, Color Infusion Adaline King and Color Infusion Sterling Riese. Love these guys!

The three dolls on my wish list are:

Barbie Basics Model 2 Collection 1

Barbie Basics Model 8 Collection 2.5

This next guy isn't on my wish list, but he's on Marianne's, so I thought I'd include him.

Last but not least, I tag the following five people. If you all don't want to participate that's ok too. I know some of you have been tagged already. :-)

1. Philly Collector (Hi D7ana!)
2. Roville (Hi Robin!)
3. Thanks Doll! (Hi Sergio!)
4. Pink Obsession (Hi Georgia Girl!)
5. A Day in the Life of My Dolls (Hi Phyllis!)

Now that things have settled down a little around here, I hope to be posting more often. Thank you all so very much for your patience, understanding and loyalty. :-)

Chance Encounter

With Arty away at an IT convention, Lauren and Adaline met up at Casey's for a long overdue visit. Arty and Lauren had been dating for over two months, and Lauren felt happy for the first time in a long time. Unfortuneatly, Adaline hadn't been so lucky...

I would say Adaline and Cameron hit it off quite well. Of course, Lauren was hoping that would happen. I don't think she liked Ace all that much. She somehow knew that he wasn't Adaline's type, but she let Adaline find that out for herself.  We'll see what develops from here out. :-)
