Inner Monster "Scared Silly/Shockingly Shy"

Even though I do have quite a few Create-A-Monster dolls, they've never been my favourite thing that Monster High has to offer. Generally I've bought them when I think the character is really special, like the bee girl, or the three-eyed ghoul, or the blob girl...okay, maybe I do like them more than I thought! What I'm saying is, that for a doll like that to really grab me, it has to be super cool, and I think the Inner Monsters are super cool indeed! When we first saw photos I definitely thought they were neat, but I wasn't sure how they would translate in person. They have a lot going on and lots of pieces, and that can be awesome or it can be overwhelming!

As soon as they hit the shelves here, I knew that the one I wanted was Scared Silly/Shockingly Shy. Not only is she orange and purple, two of my favourite colours, but she has cool crossed eyes! They're a bit pricey up here, around $30, which seemed like a bit much, but Toys R Us had a 30% off sale and well, here we are! I also grabbed the matching add-on pack from Wal-Mart, because I love the extra face it comes with. Extra face! That's why I love Monster High!

Freaky Fusion Ghoulia Yelps

It's been awhile since we actually talked about dolls over here, hasn't it? Well, I've finally gotten to this lovely Ghoulia doll in my stack of things to blog about, and it's about time! It felt like it took forever for me to finally get  my hands on her, and now she's been sitting boxed up in my kitchen for what feels like weeks since I got home, but it was finally her turn in front of the camera!

With the exception of the Hybrid characters, Avea and Sirena in particular, most of the Freaky Fusion line doesn't really appeal to me. I've seen all of the Fused Ghouls in person now, and only Dracubecca and Cleolei are even a bit appealing to me, and I definitely am not a fan of Neighthan's style, though his sculpt is really cool. So, I'm not sure how many other dolls from this line you'll be seeing me review, at least not until they start going on sale...but that might change once I see the movie too, that always changes my mind on some things!

Anyways, without further ado, let's take a closer look at Ghoulia, and see what Draculaura thinks of Ghoulia's interpretation of her style!

FanExpo Canada 2014 - Saturday and Sunday, with haul!

It's been a few days since FanExpo, and I can feel the Con Crud starting to set in. It never fails that 4 days of not enough sleep, crappy food and tens of thousands of people in not nearly enough space ends with me being sick, but it's also always worth it!

This post is going to cover Saturday and Sunday, and also I'm going to show you pictures of some of the stuff I got! Saturday is by far the busiest day of the weekend, though this year, even Thursday was busy, and I found it tricky to take too many photos simply due to the sheer amount of people. I did still get some fun shots, and I hope you enjoy them!

Oh, and maybe I found a TARDIS on a hill!

FanExpo Canada 2014 - Thursday and Friday

Well, after a very tiring but AMAZING four days, I am back home from FanExpo! It was a great weekend as usual, and I have some photos to share! I never take as many photos as I would like to, and this year was no different. I find it difficult to take a lot of photos when I'm in costume myself, as I don't like carrying my camera in front of my cute costume, but I still think I captured some good stuff! We also planned to vlog, and we even started vlogging but...well, turns out I'm bad at remembering to vlog when I'm having fun!

Anyways, I have two posts of photos from my weekend coming up, and I do also have some things I purchased that I will be reviewing as well, so stay tuned for that! If you're interested in seeing some of the great costumes I saw, and a little glimpse into what FanExpo is like, then click through!

It's impossible to be standing underneath the CN Tower and not take this photo, I think. I'm pretty sure I take it every year!
