Dolly blogger, Ms. Leo, did a post of some thrift store items she purchased. One of them was a My Scene doll. Since she's not a fan of oversized heads, she agreed on a trade. She got one of my nekkid Justin Bieber dolls and I got her awesome My Scene head! Woot woot! Muff is pleased!
Here she be! A little unkempt from her thrift store adventures, but I'll fix that. This is my first time seeing one of these dolls in person. The line had come and gone before I even knew it existed. I went online to find out more about them and at best I figure I have this lady.
The MyScene.com website had some videos and games but the bio details were sketchy. They all seem to be, "Daddy this, limo that and I like clothes." I'm going to assume that Madison is mixed raced since she has a euro nose and blue eyes. Perhaps latino or black heritage? Personality wise, I mostly get a french vibe from the one I have so I think she'll be my first french black canadian. I may change her eye color though, so who knows.
My only complaint is this goopy, thick, glitter encrusted eye shadow. Ugh, I loathe glitter. It is my nemesis.
I don't recall seeing any photo comparisons so I did not realize My Scene heads were so large. I thought they were playline size but they are more comparative to Monster High heads. They are not as wide as a Monster but from head to chin they are very similar.
However, if you compare them based on hair line placement, the My Scene is longer. I only have Monster wolves so I don't know if the other Monsters have such tall scalps. Maybe wolves just have bigger brains. ^_^. Anyway, it's time for some changes to this My Scene doll so it's off to the salon!
It took me almost an entire episode of Psych on Hulu to tame her hair. That's a whole lot of water wasted. Sorry environment, but my doll needed that water! Could be because of its age or how the rooting was done, but as you can see by that big ball, her hair came out way too easily. Once I finished detangling, I did go ahead and remove the rest of her orange highlights. Orange hair is a little too scene for my tastes.
I detangled her strictly with water and no conditioner. Two reasons: 1) if you are not careful and get conditioner on the face paint, it will weaken it and make it easy to come off and 2) since I intend to shrink her head, using conditioner now and then dunking her head in nail solution would be a very bad idea.
After hair, she took a turn in the makeup chair and I removed that hideous glitter. I may take off the frosted shadow, but now that the glitter is gone I don't mind it so much. I don't have an articulated body for her yet so she wont get one until Fashionistas go on sale. I do have some Liv bodies available, but she seems too mature for a Liv body.
This was a fun experience and I hereby pronounce this trade a success! Thanks, Ms. Leo!
