|And I don't even like Frozen.1|
On the retirement front, Cécile and Ruthie are gone and the other stuff is going fast. Good thing I have what I want.
Who likes short openings followed by a cut? You do!
Wonderbread the Ballerina and the Attack of the Sparkly Shit (with bonus racisms!)
Ugh we're not even halfway through the year with her ass2 and I'm 700% done with her shit. Sigh. Let's get this overwith.
|Does all her shit have unneeded sparkles?|
But wait, this isn't in any of her books! Where is this outfit from?
Isabelle and her sister, Jade, are off to New York City for a summer ballet program. It feels like a dream come true - until Isabelle meets her Japanese roommate, Miki, who doesn't seem to want to spend any time with her. When Isabelle realizes that Miki has trouble speaking English, she searches for a way to bridge the gap between them. Can the two girls from different cultures find a way to communicate through their shared love of dance?
*visible angrish foaming* Oh you've got to be kidding me. Another character of color, but this one gets the stigma of not speaking The Perfect English and being the Asian stereotype of being standoffish and unpleasant to our Perfect White American Sweetheart, who will then ease her out of her poor wittle shell of Asianness. That had better not be the plot, man. I'll probably end up buying this because I'm a book completist, but I'll have to find a Kindle reading app for my tablet cause I don't have a Kindle and unless someone wants to buy me one, I'll live without for the present.
|White WonderBread Powers, Makeup!3|
Enough of that hot mess. On to:
Moddie Stuff, or What Did the 80s Ever Do to Deserve This?4
|All the Felicity, none of the clothes.|
|For all your beachy needs.|
Sunny Isle Outfit: Technically, this was released around the end of May--I saw it at AG Houston--but I'm going over all the new shit that isn't Bitty Shit so it's getting lumped with the new shit. (Speaking of which, the current Purchase with Purchase is a dress and hair accessory that, with $50 of other shit, can be yours for $16.) It's not terrible--though the top ruffles are eh. I could make a set like it, and that tends to dissuade me from some things.
|Hat and Beach stuff.|
Seaside Tote Set: Add on the hat, bag, bracelet, and sunblock. The only part I like is the bag for my Kanani, and not for the cost they're asking. Let it go to a discount, maybe.
|Lime in the coconut.|
|...this is offensive to tutus and bees.|
Petals and Plaid PJ's: That top looks really weird; like a layered tank that didn't tank right. And the pants are...blech. Not feeling it at all.
|Is pastel the new bed color?|
|Pastel furniture is weird.|
Bouquet Nightstand: Take what I just said about the bed being bought to repaint it and apply it. Also, I don't think doll nightstands hold enough for me. Still, at a lower cost and the thought of putting doll earrings or my own inside, it's a lot more possible of showing up in my house than the bed.
|Complete with doggie pillow.|
|Coconut outfits have never been my thing.|
|Too much together.|
|....well, the 80s are here.|
|That's a lot of....stripe.|
|White backpack? Bad Idea.|
Who's going camping in those boots?
|The bears won't eat you because the color is offensive.|
|That's bright and splotchy.|
|It looks too much like a toy to be a cookstove.|
|How cute. In a bad way.|
|Rah Rah Sis boom bah.|
|Skaters in skirts.|
|Just one belt?|
|More Colored Weave!|
|Getting my braids put in.|
|omg the little bows!|
|Earrings don't grow on trees.|
|Ring a ding ding.|
|The 80s continue to be in watch form.|
|WOW that's so 80s.|
Coconut's Funky Makeover!
|Doggy strut ain't got not issues~|
Speaking of everyone else with a name, they got kicked to the curb, including Licorice who had only been back for two years. This is a one-named-dog company, get the fuck out. All our new pets come with AG foot tats so you know the breeder. The new pet animals are:
Corgi Puppy, the new It Dog of the decade;
Apricot Poodle Puppy, or all of the Honey with none of the name;
Dalmatian Puppy, for all your Disney Simulation8 Needs,
Chocolate Lab Puppy, who used to be Chocolate Chip;
|Here Kitty Kitty!|
Oh HEY! Now I don't have to hunt down Rascal for Marisol! This is adorable and she will join my household.
All the old shit got retired, and there are now new pet things with mouth toys. Which I am not going into detail on because if it's not a collar or a leash my opinion is that it's extraneous. Stop dressing up your dogs, it looks stupid. And I don't even know if you could get a cat to wear a skirt. But the list is as follows:
- Charm-ing Pet Collar
- Jeweled Collar and Leash
- Spiky Collar and Leash
- Blossoms Collar and Leash
- Cuddles and Cures Pet Set
- Pet Grooming Set
- Treats and Eats Pet Set
- Pet Celebration Set
- Princess Pet Bed
- Funky Pet Bed
- Dreamy Daisy Pet Bed
- Travel Kennel
The next time I bitch about a major update we'll be looking at BeForever. Is my body ready? I don't know yes maybe yes I don't know--whatever NEW ADDY SHIT IS COMING YAY~
1 Okay, technically there are parts of Frozen I like. The song Let It Go and...uh, Elsa singing that song. And Elsa. The rest of the movie is kinda of ass.
2 The halfway point of the year is exactly July 2nd. It's something I learned in middle school.
3 I made a SailorMoon Reference~
4 Oh right. Elected Reagan twice.
5 I have both Licorice sets, but she's just on the purse so they don't scream "AG MODDIE MASCOT" all over.
6 Went camping once as an adult with my in-laws. Our idea of roughing it was bringing the 13" television to play the N64 games on. Truly, a terrible age. Nowadays I wouldn't go camping without a solid wi-fi connection.
7 Still owe that How To Do post.
8 Guess what? Dalmatians can be terrible dogs for households with young children and they need lots of activity. Thanks, Disney, for adding to the pet population by having parents get dogs and other pets based on cute or whining, and not on temperament and fit. If your young child watches 101 Dalmatians and wants one, get them a stuffed dog until they're older and less irresponsible. Animals shouldn't suffer for human whims.
