once upon a time
Have you all seen the brand new create your own section on the American Girl website? Now you can create your very own doll for $200, which, yes, is expensive, but AWESOME! XD You have the ability to choose the face mold, skin tone, eye color (your doll can even have 2 different eye colors!!), hair color, hair cut/style, and MORE! It’s seriously the greatest thing ever and I’ve made a ton of dolls (I’m dying, guys) so I thought it would be fun to share them with you! 🙂
Here’s the first one I made! SHE IS SO CUTE AGH!! XD
This is the newest one I made – I wanted to make one that looked like a princess which I think I succeeded. *heart eyes*
This one I made to look like my sister. It’s not totally accurate, but I think it resembles her enough 🙂
This is my mom – or rather the closest I could get it to looking like her. She actually has blonde and brown hair and gold eyes, but… THIS WORKS! XD
I LIKEY THIS ONE!! XD
OOH OOH! HER TOO!!! XD
This is Regina from Once Upon a Time 🙂
And this is Snow White – also from Once Upon a Time. I wish there was a lighter skin with redder lips… Hm… XD
This is Mary Margaret which is Snow White in our world XD
This is Emma Swan – also from Once Upon a Time! XD
AND AN ADORABLE IRISH GIRL!! XD (that hair, right?!)
I think this one is my least favorite, but she’s cute 🙂
I really like this one, toooo… :O XD
So that’s all I’ve made so far! I’m probably gonna go make some more right now while I watch Moana with my parents. I’m addicted, girls. I need more money so I can feel okay with spending $200 on a doll. O_O XD
Also, just wanna apologize for not posting the next part of Fate of the Unborn yet… I’ll try to get around to that soon. 😉
What do you think of the Create Your Own? Have you made a lot of dolls? Do you think you’ll buy one or have you already?
Hey everyone! So today, I am featuring some non-AG dolls that are super cute, super detailed, and super ADORA-ble! Do you know what dolls I’m talking about? Yep! Adora dolls! 😀 Actually, Adora baby dolls 😉
So how did I come to start collecting these dolls? Well, it was all my mom’s doing, actually!
My mom is just one of those awesome moms who will go on eBay, Amazon, and the like, searching for inexpensive AG dolls and stuff (it was thanks to her that I got Kiara and Dallas! 🙂 ) and I think it was one of those times that she discovered these dolls on Amazon. She fell in love with a sweet little redheaded green-eyed baby boy and I fell in love with a happy brunette blue-eyed boy. My mom ordered hers when he went on sale (yes, my mom LOVES these dolls! She’s so awesome! 😀 ) and I think it was right after she placed her order that I decided I wanted to buy my little boy. So he was ordered as well. I named mine Henry (after OUAT. I couldn’t get the scene out of my head of Regina holding baby Henry when he was crying and saying “Heeenry!”) and my mom named hers Dominic from Anne of Green Gables. We got them on December 14th, 2014. They arrived at the worst time too cause I was just leaving to go Christmas shopping with my dad and I had to wait till I got home to open him! I was dying LOL!
Now skipping head, today a new addition arrived. Everyone, meet….
Awww, my little Henry! Something also you should know is that the dolls usually look a LOT different in person than they do in the stock photos. Online, Henry’s face looks way chubbier than it actually is, and same goes for the others. I was a little disappointed when I got Henry cause he didn’t look the same as online, but after a day or two, I got used to him and now I think he is just as sweet as can be! 🙂
Henry didn’t come with any shoes or socks (which I thought was kinda of sad), but his feet are just so cute!
Heehee!! She’s so cute!! I love her little curls and can’t wait to take her hair down. That’s something I forgot to talk about! The hair! Okay, it’s so soft!!! The quality in the wig seems like an AG doll’s wig. I read in a booklet that came with the box how to take care of her hair and it is very similar to how you would style an AG’s. It even says to lightly mist it with water to help get out tangles!
The prices of these dolls vary from I believe (I could be wrong) $100 and up. Annie was a really good price, though, at about $60 from Zulily! And it was awesome, too, cause she shipped yesterday (When she was supposed to ship on November 1st) and got here today! YAY! 😀
And here is my mom’s new little girl, Regina Joy (Joy is her middle name 😉 )!!! I think she is so cute, too! My mom named her after Regina from OUAT. Isn’t that funny? She has two dolls, one named after a OUAT character, the other after Anne of Green Gables, and so do I! We both think that’s hilarious and we didn’t even plan it! XD
Well, I hope you enjoyed being introduced to our precious little babies and that this review was fun and interesting to read 🙂 I didn’t think I would have ever bought another baby doll, but these faces are just so irresistible!! 😀
Do you like baby dolls still? What do you think of the Adora baby dolls?
While my family and I don’t celebrate Halloween, I still enjoy dressing up and going to a local church for games and (of course) CANDY! I’m being Elsa for Halloween, who are you going to be?
Anyways, I hope you enjoy this little photostory! 🙂
“I’m so glad that my mom and dad said I could have some friends over for a sleepover!” Annika said. “Me, too! Thanks for having us over, Annika!” Kiara said with a smile. “No problem! So, I made some cupcakes and frosted them in yours and Clara’s favorite colors! And we also bought a little box of truffles. Gotta have candy!” Annika said with a giggle.
….But soon enough, they fell asleep.
What did you and your dollies do for Dolloween?
