Monster High from The Dollie Dungeon

What seems like almost a lifetime ago... back in 2012... when Monster High was new and fresh and exciting, I came upon the idea of turning my MH ghouls in to "fortune tellers" or "genies" or... yes, the term has since fallen out of favor: gypsies. I had learned about a discontinued Bratz line called "Genie Magic," and I set about collecting "Genie Magic" sets to repurpose in to Monster High costumes.

In retrospect, from a financial standpoint I would have been better off collecting and saving the mint-in-box "Genie Magic" sets, as they have since become somewhat ex-pensive on the secondary market. At the time, however, most "Genie Magic" sets were reasonably priced, and I had quite a lot of fun tracking down the versions and creating costumes for Monster High figures and characters.

Spectra adapted particularly well to the mystic fortune teller fashions

Later, Mattel introduced the 13 Wishes line of fortune teller / genie inspired Monster High figures. At the time, Mattel and MGA were blatantly copying one another (MGA introduced Bratzillaz in response to the popularity of Monster High), so I suspect 13 Wishes was a response to Genie Magic. While the 13 Wishes line was fun, I have always preferred my MH-Bratz mash-ups.

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