I don't know what's the deal but this is the second time I felt alienated from a local Monster High/Ever After High Facebook group. I mean it's nice to see all the photos, and it's definitely normal for the members to fawn over them. That's probably the reaction the owner of the post is expecting from their photos. Doll news and other discussions about dolls though, they seem a bit allergic to it? What gives?
One time I left a comment on a doll. In my comment I was able to identify the doll, then said the doll's hair and lips look really nice. Pretty short and generic for a comment. But I got a cold "Ok" from the owner. Huh?
Then today I posted the news early morning that EAH dolls are finally at Toy Kingdom. I got one person asking me about them, so I gave them more information. After a few hours though, the post is gone. What is the admin's problem? Do they not want other people to get their EAH dolls locally?
Even though I wasn't banned at all, I decided to leave the group, and that marks the last time I join a Facebook group dedicated to MH and EAH.
I think my kind of people would be over at Tumblr, who is open for news sharing, inquiries, and specially sharing their own toys. Next would be the ones with their own doll blogs. The ones I meet on Facebook are normally purists: those that buy dolls brand new and keep them in their original outfits and hair styles. That's totally fine. I mean, MH and EAH styles are normally colour-coordinated because of their skin colour, so it figures that some owners just stick to the doll's original appearance. From my experience though, I rarely saw people there who share their work on their rescued dolls, like there's an invisible cloud of shame for doing that, which I do not get at all.
That's really it. I'm done. I'll stick to the local selling Facebook groups because at least I can ask questions about some of the dolls, and I get to see many types, and if I get lucky, I can score some dolls for a very cheap price. But if my experience there turns into crap as well, ah then bless whatever that made that possible.
