Sparkle Girlz 4.0 outdoor shoot + Are they being phased out?

It's my birthday weekend! I say that upfront to justify the following: Went to my moms local Walmart and found these. I didn't bother to grab a basket since I assumed there would be very little. WAS I WRONG! These might be old but I haven't doll shopped in a minute so they're new to me. The ladies were consummate professionals, despite the 30 degree temp outside they maintained a positive attitude throughout the morning. hope you enjoy!

I got 13 packs total

This is what happens when you have a 4 year old PA, her boots end up in the  picture. When i saw this outfit I thought of Skipper immediately

(sans boot)

This may have been another Skipper outfit

Rihanna is ready for holiday with this calypso inspired top and shorts

Mattel sweater and Liv boots. This is a  one piece , I think it's pretty cute.

I spy...

That's better! (Skirt is Kenya Fashion Madness, boots are Mattel)

I wasn't going for a 'lost barefoot in the woods look ', but her giant feet literally fit nothing in my collection. Not MH, Liv, Stardoll. Its flat and wide.

These are shorts! How cute!?

My favorite!

She loved the camera! Got so many good shots it was hard to edit. Her twin (below) could not wait for it to be over.

This had straps that crossed in the front I removed them to make her hair ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

On my last Sparkle Girlz post I said the Walmart I went to had such a tiny display of items I was only able to get like 4 outfits. My worst fear was almost confirmed when I went to this out of the way store and they had NOTHING. not even a one off straggler. I asked an employee and she told me they were last seen in the final clearance toy section. When I looked there they were gone. I asked her again, she said this store was one of the smaller locations and sometimes phase out certain items. I think it was a combination of joy and panic that made me get so much, but I'm glad I did. Please let me know if you guys have heard/seen the same at your stores.

Mini Sparkle Girlz fashion show, new made to move, and Peacekeepers

I went to Walmart with the baby and we went around the same aisle about four times before I finally found the tiniest sparkle girlz display. I was mildly disappointed but we managed .

Brandy is in this adorable short set. At first I didn't care for the clear plastic straps, but not I don't mind them

My favorite! It's a one piece
My new made to move! she is ready for summer 
I really love the print on this top and was hoping to find more variations

Three weeks ago I made my fourth trip in life to Big Lots looking for World Peacekeepers. I originally got three but returned one. Not sure who I'll match them up with but I'm looking forward to  playing matchmaker!

Monster High Ghouls Rule Clawdeen Makeunder + Clawdeen collection

I made a recent trip to the thrift store to find a bag with 3 different versions of Clawdeen and one Draculara (which I sold) I did not take a before picture but they were all in really good condition included the entire outfit plus accessories. i find they are always doing the absolute most with Clawdeen. That Kiss inspired make up was a no for me the minute i saw it. Half way removing the glitter I realized it was fixed to her eyebrows as well. I was almost annoyed until I realized I liked how it was turning out. I did the following:
-Removed eyebrows/most makeup
-trimmed her hair shoulder length 
-Removed the fur from the shoes
-cut out the fur from the sleeves
-removed green gloves
-Removed all accessories except earrings

Below are all my Clawdeens! I fought myself so hard not to collect her and her siblings, but how can you not love her!? and for $8 I got three in mint condition! Going back to that store tomorrow to see what else they have that I couldn't afford at the time. hey and thank you to everyone who kept visiting, I really appreciate it!

Dolls Dolls and more Dolls....I May need an Intervention

I started to edit this some time early last year. Basically I got more babies :-)
