I love that shot of Mikasa.

I'm rather fond of Midges, with their red hair and freckles. Add the Steffi mold and she does gets even better.

Dante looks very natural in this pose at the mini golf course.

The Attack on Titan shot is fantastic - the looking-up angle into the trees is great.

Dante in the golf-course is great too, it's inspired me to look at unusual places like that to take photos.

RE: DeadlyNova's A Doll A Day 2018
Thank you all so so much! <3

I done goofed. I didn't take a picture for TWO DAYS before today. Oops. But really, the last couple of days were super busy for me so I didn't even have time to touch a doll let alone a camera.

So here are three days in one post! And, as promised, some more unique dolls and figures.

Day 48:

Pop Figure of Jughead Jones from the CW Archie Comic's Spinoff Series, Riverdale. I think this one is a Hot Topic exclusive version of him without his hat, which honestly bugs me because I can't find him with his hat, and everyone knows Jughead is always wearing his stupid hat!
He's the only Pop from this series I'm interested in. Riverdale is a guilty pleasure series of mine, even though it's really cheesy and bad at times. The main reason I watched it in the first place was because Jughead was played by Cole Sprouse, who was my very first childhood crush. LOL

Day 49:

It's Britney, bitch!

I found this NRFB Britney Spears doll thrown into a pile of toys at Goodwill recenlty, for four dollars! I love her!! My sister had this exact same one when we were kids. She even has a CD. She's not very pretty, but she's Britney!

Day 50:

RE: DeadlyNova's A Doll A Day 2018
If you hadn’t said the Pop was Jughead I never would have guessed because he’s not wearing the hat.
River dale is a not-guilty pleasure in our house (I refuse to feel guilt over tv shows, no matter how dumb they are smile ) we watched the first few eps on a plane flight last year & had to find out what happened next.

The Britney looks nothing like the person, but hurrah for finding her cheap!

The Gorillaz figure is only wearing underwear (pants?) right? That’s how it looks to me anyway.

RE: DeadlyNova's A Doll A Day 2018
I certainly never would have guessed that Pop figure was Jughead. My first thought was Elvis. Then Fonzie.

Britney! Will she remain mint-in-package, or are you anxious to listen to the CD?

Speaking of rockers, that Gorillaz figure is wild! Upside-down crucifix, Nazi-like officer's cap... what a rebel!

They're not dolls, they're action figures!

It is still a preorder until late March but there he is - plus hat smile

I thought your pop was Fonzie I must admit. Great pic though.

Brit Brit really does not look like the woman, but I am happy you found another of your thrift store bargains grin

That Gorillaz is - yea, a nasty mess covers it LOL He looks really cool.

You have such a varied collection. Cool that you were able to find the same doll your sister had!

RE: DeadlyNova's A Doll A Day 2018
I'm glad you all agree that the pop doesn't look like Jughead, haha. I had to have him anyway. Still cute. I can kind of see Cole Sprouse in his tiny black eyes. No?

It's not really a guilty pleasure, I don't feel guilty over anything I like either. I'm just not sure how to say what I mean I guess.

Thanks for the link, Miss Edith! I like this one so much more and he looks so much more like him!!!!

I'm definitely leaving Britney in her package, she's one I have no benefit in removing.

And yes, Murdoc is only in his underwear. xd

Day 51:

Ideal Velvet from 1970

I'm sure a lot of people are familiar with Crissy and friends, the line of Ideal dolls with 'growing hair' from the 70's. Velvet is Crissy's cousin, and I've always been a much bigger fan of her than Crissy herself. She was one of the first vintage dolls I bought online. Her hair is a mess, and I've had her in a wig for years, but I figured that since I finally acquired Crissy from a flea market recently I'd try to fix Velvet's actual hair into something resembling a style so I could display them together. These dolls hair can age well from what I've seen, but I think a lot of the time it was just bad to begin with. Velvet's isn't nearly as bad as my Crissy's, her hair is two completely different textures. The majority of her hair is short and curly and the 'growing' part that you pull is long and straight. Not a good look.
Here's Velvet's commercial, because that's always fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_b1d3DnBuE

RE: DeadlyNova's A Doll A Day 2018
She looks so youthful for being forty-seven years old!

She's quite pretty, and appears to be in very good condition. I'm glad she has found a caring home where she will be taken care of and where her retro charms are appreciated.

Thank you for linking to the TV commercial, too! IDEAL used to make some great toys!

They're not dolls, they're action figures!

RE: DeadlyNova's A Doll A Day 2018
I still have my Velvet from my childhood dolly days. She is my favorite of the growing hair dolls. I also have my sister's Crissy, whose hair is in pretty poor condition, and her Australian friend Kerry. More recently, I picked up a Cinnamon.
