|When life and the world snatches you bald, go on anyways.|
The Powers Combined of Brain Weasels, Vacation, Disabilities, Activities, and Fucked Up News Shit: hi, why don't we just make you out to be a big ass liar and ruin your day
Me: why u do dis ;____;
Fuck it. I'm doing the post now, before it gets overlapped by the release of Nanea.1 And other things I gotta say such as This Year at MCM, AG Chicago, 7 Mile, AG at TRU, Create Your Own, any other news--can just be in my next post.
Cut to the stuff: Less chatter more splatter.
100% Moddie For the Body
|New Meet and Greet: Now With Actually Interesting Accessories!2|
|The shoes leave much to be desired.|
Truly Me Accessories: To compliment your dress, jacket, and lumpyshoes, you can add on a sweater to go over the dress, leggings to go under the dress, a headband for hair bandings, a wristlet purse that Dolly's New Smartphone tech goes in, said smartphone with a case and screens to resemble phoning, a library card, a gift card to AG for that hella meta, and five bucks (where'd you get five bucks I want five bucks).3 Nice, some accessories I can get behind that feel like they're worth what you're paying for them. Hell, if you just buy the accessories yourself you kinda have a whole 'nother outfit. I'll get them whenever I get a gang member in the outfit. Speaking of gang members:
|How many Gabby? All the Gabby? All the Gabby.|
Just Like You 68: Did you want a light skinned Josefina? A Rebecca with brown eyes? A Lea that actually looks like she might be of Brazilian background? Or perhaps a Grace, but minus the freckles and plus brown eyes? Maybe you need a base for a more accurate Dear Lisbeth. Here you go, it's a light Josefina with dark hair and dark eyes. She's cute, but I have Amanda4 now, so I don't need her.
Just Like You 69: Don't you dare make that joke this is a family blog--oh who am I kidding, this is my third "fuck" in this post alone. Anyways, if #68 right before her was too intimidating with her roundish, Latina looking face and side part, here's your Classic Mold Girl with a center part so you can feel better about yourself. Well, at least she's not blonde or blue-eyed. No new moddie girls were. Huzzah for the shopkeep!5
Did anyone get kicked out? Yep; #37 and #30. So long and thanks for all the memories. Recreate them in the Create Your Own for $200. Or in the case of #30, go buy Z. When in doubt, buy Z and Gabby.
|Gimme a head without hair!|
Are they at the stores? Maybe. But they can always be purchased online. Smooth like an egg, for whatever reason you need your girl bald--be in chemo loss or a character you want to put bright rainbow hair on without taking hair off first.

|When the first set didn't show the dress, so you took another set.|
Travel in Style Luggage: It's Grace's Suitcase again! Only now with stickers and a tote bag. Not my thing, doll suitcases. My doll suitcase consists of getting in my carry on and putting their clothes in a bag.6 We're good without.
Travel in Style Accessories: All the stuff you need to be on a plane: passport in case you don't have an ID that is good enough or you're just skipping over to Canada, sunglasses, camera, plane and train tickets, magazine, roundy neck thing, carrying bag, and a banana. Are those neck pillows actually useful? I've never got one, though I fly a lot. Either way, this is interesting but ultimately a pass for me.
French Bulldog: Bonbon all over again! But grey and jointed. Look I have enough pets here, most are dogs, and I need more cats. Still, not bad for a pet.
Fancy Pet Outfit: For the prissy dog in your life--like that fancy Pomeranian--we have a capelet, a headband, and a purse to hold. If you can get your dog to cosplay like the cosplay cats, then power to you. My mom's dog just looks at us stupid.
|Coconut's Stories Live On! On a Shirt.|
|Lookin' at the sky with my sunshades on.7|
|More Earrings. Not enough Earrings.|
|Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn--|
American Girl Grand Hotel: Does your doll enjoy fancy hotel stays, complete with shampoo bottles, foot benches, flowers, and a whole bed to herself? Does she want her own sink set up? Or maybe just time away from everyone else? Here you go, it's a goddamn hotel. It's got a lot of stuff. A lot. One side is in the room, complete with roomy goodies like chocolate10 that I'd have to toss and a lamp and a order in menu and flipping Q-Tips--
|It took two pictures what the zeus.|
|Cart! Food! And Shit I've already talked about.|
AG Grand Hotel Luggage Cart: Of course, you can't carry your own things to your fancy room like a plebe. Enter a luggage cart, complete with a garment bag, AG shopping bag--and Coconut, who has been downgraded to a plush belldog. Alas, poor Coconut. I knew her, Horatio. It's a good add on for the hotel but otherwise nah.
AG Grand Hotel Room Service Set: You deserve breakfast in bed, if you can afford it. Have it. It's a fancy tray and a silver cover and--wait you just ordered a cinnamon roll and berries? Girl get you some pancakes and French Toast. You are in a hotel, fuck yo diet. This would be fine elsewhere, unlike the luggage cart. I can have fancy breakfast at home. I can't have a luggage cart.
|Because a cat's the only cat, that knows where it's at. Also leash your pets.|
Tuxedo Cat: New cat! Black cat! Well, mostly black cat. It's Licorice back from the retirement, now with joints and a magnet! I should get this. Then I'll have more cats. Cats are cool.
Flower Leash Set: It's flowered and purple and a leash. See above re: needing a sale.
|Rubber Duckie, you're the one.|
|On Fridays we wear cheer uniforms.|
School Locker Set (II): What did I just say about numerals? Sigh. Kneel down and get your stuff put away between classes and shit. Put in pictures of the guy you like. (Or the girl, or the person. Look, gender is a construct.) Stick up a mirror, and add stickers on the inside that you will never get back at the end of the school year. Enjoy education!
...man, now I really wish I'd gotten Julie's locker. Large cool lockers rock.
|Taco Tuesday! Wait, today's Friday--Taco Friday!|
|Oh noes. That's not a good cage.|
So get this set if you like, but then encourage yourself (or the kiddle getting the set) to learn better and craft or make a better living space. And get the word out that the space shown isn't enough, even in a classroom. Don't make your pets suffer in shiny boxes. They're not just little beasts to live like you make them. Love them and give them spaces. Mmkay? Mmmkay.
I said I would give the moddie stuff its own post Friday. I just didn't think it would be this many Fridays later.
But I have Felicity's new meet outfit, I'm excite for Nanea, the Create Your Own stuff is really kinda interesting--and maybe when I can stop being a lump, I can review all this stuff I've got. And Felicity's cute new stays I bought from a really kickass Etsy shop.
1 Nanea had a preorder just like DeeDee, but Neth didn't do it. Why? Because my options were to either A) pay to have it shipped back home while I was still out of town or B) pick her up at AG Chicago while I was there--thus forgoing all the other stuff I wanted from Chicago, and still having to ditch the box. So I am just waiting for the full release. Plus, I'm pretty sure my Bae would have shanked me for bringing home any more dolls than I already did, and I couldn't get all that back in two suitcases after my MCM and other fun purchases. In-person it is! Plus I can forgo the hula set I'm only meh on, for the dress I simply adore.
2 Hat and mouthgear not included.
3 Season Seven, Episode 4, "Bart Sells His Soul."
4 Amanda, in short form, is what happens when I spend three hours cursing and yelling sitting on the floor of my grandma's living room and still get brown eyes in an MCM Grace Doll. Because I'm awesome. She has a second half friend, Melissa, who was her eye donor and stuck around.
5 Season Three, Episode 3, "When Flanders Failed."
6 Sometimes it's cloth. Sometimes its an old LootCrate box. Most of the time, it's a Ziplock.
7 "Deep Deep Trouble," Simpsons Sing the Blues. Wow, my brain is just a hive of Simpsons quotes and refs.
8 I won't get full totality, but I'll get 93% which counts as an A.
9 There's Amanda, Melissa--both of which need intros--Gabbi, Abbi, and Tara off the top of my head. Not including Kimmy and Elizabeth, who wear historical earrings. Everyone else maintains their straight shot piercings.
10 While on vacation I bumped into a sink drying rack that a Hersey's syrup bottle had touched. I didn't know. I broke out in hives and pumped my body full of Benadryl and still ended up with a rash that is now healing scar bumps. Ain't nothing changed.
11 Even my mom's dog did that; the moment he saw me sleeping, he'd leap on whatever I was sleeping and tuck behind my legs.
