Unpacking the Masses

I've finally begun to unpack my dolls in earnest. Although I'm still waiting for more Ikea showcases, I can begin to fill up the ones I already have.







Mainly I started with my Fashion Royalty Vanessas. I have a very long road ahead of me as I did not pack all of them with their outfits on. They will need to be redressed and for that to happen I have to have all their clothes, jewelry and shoes organized so I can find it. Not easy.

What is it with us doll collectors? Is there never enough? I keep looking at this Tonner doll, Marvel's Black Cat, and I want her. I think she is just beautiful.

I wonder if her outfit stains - especially the mask. If you have one, please let me know.

  1. I hate the unpacking of dolls, so more power to you!! No only redressing, but ironing (if needed) or rearranging hair. It's a never ending cycle.

    As for Black Cat, her white eyebrows are so unique, I wouldn't want the mask on her.

    1. I think she may be packaged with the mask but I don't know.

  2. I have Black Cat. She's beautiful, very striking facial features. I don't know if the outfit stains but the mask might. The mask is not lined with fabric, there's just some white tissue stuck on it. I decided not to risk displaying her in it.

    1. I'm getting 3 more of the clear glass Ikea cabinets. In the doll room you can see that I have two of those and one that is white with glass doors. The glass ones are annoying but not difficult to put together. The white one was more difficult and takes up lots of room.

    1. I like her. I have her right here and I think she is lovely. There is a difference in her upper lip but it's so minor, it doesn't matter.

  5. I hope you enjoy your girls all over again, and take your time to fall inlove with the ones you had almost forgotten you had =)

    As for your other question... no it is never enough. We change, so must our collections =) (at least that's how I see it ^_^)
