I bought the Freddie doll for the outfit - the headband doesn’t fit the Pullips, but the rest does.

Oh, Freddie's outfit is brilliant. I really wish Hasbro had continued to do multi-piece outfits, as for some later ones everything is just one layer. I an understand the why of this - it cuts down on bulk and looks better on the doll - but it does make it harder to share the outfits. I'd love to see how it looks on some of the Pullips, if that's possible?

Freddie is awesome and one of the Descendants that make me sad the line didn't make it here.

See, I got really lucky and one of my local supermarkets got some MTM in and were selling them at a discount, so I did pick them up. Well, a couple at least. Now?Well, right now it's actually cheaper to buy one of the BMR1959 line because while they are a few pounds more, they come with a full outfits, shoes, and a stand. It's just... yeah, better option tbh. 

Ah, the creaky knees sound effect! Actually, I have been looking up some older Disney dolls - I'd really love to get hold of a Megara. I did have one when I was younger, but I cannot remember what happened to her. I don't think I'd rebody her if I did. ... It's just the question of does this come before wishlist stuff, or do I just try to focus on the wishlist...

The only place I really saw the Descendants line here was in the Disney Store. No, tell a lie, it did hit one of the supermarkets for a little bit but I only really recall my local one having the massive four pack that I didn't want because it wasn't any new characters I hadn't found cheap on eBay. But all this goes back to my WHY IS DISTRIBUTION ALWAYS SO WEIRD complaint. I know it's rather petty, in the scheme of things, but still.

Esme needs a tambourine to complete the look!

eBay would probably be your best bet at the moment, or maybe Amazon US would still have some in. (Actually, there's new dolls related to the Z-O-M-B-I-E-S franchise that look exclusive to Amazon and while I'm not really into those movies, there are two of the dolls I like: this one and this one. Cool looking dolls, with good articulation. 

I wonder if I could find a tambourine...

73. G is for Gracey

Greyscale filter! Gracey is from the Disney Attractionistas line that was park exclusive. Personally, I think she's the best one of the line, and not just because she's based on my favourite park attraction, the Haunted Mansion. That being said, I would like the tower of terror related one - I think her name is Holly.

In dollcanon? Gracey fits with the Descendants crowd. She's the most current owner of the Haunted Mansion, her family inheriting it after the original owner - a murderous Captain - died himself. Having no natural family of his own for the manor to pass to, it passed to the family of his most recent wife.  The mansion is one of the few places in Auradon that does not conform to the "no magic" laws, as it is rather hard to get 999 ghosts to agree on some silly, fleeting, mortal law. 

Gracey herself is a few years older than the Villain Kids, being in university and in a History course - though she has an option extra that looks at media, with a focus on Gothic media.
