After finishing last week’s entry, I realized that the next entry (this one) would be happening during Easter Week. Time to feature a bunny creature!
Alison O’Bryan makes these wonderful creatures and offers them for sale on etsy. I chose her bunny because it appealed to both the grown up and the kid in me.
To get Flobby, The Ratty Tatty Monster Bunny, go here:
About Alison, in her own words:
A Little Catty loves to make things and making things equals a happy Little Catty! My name is Alison O'Bryan and I love to make, sculpt, knit and sew all things fiber! It is my true passion in this life. I love things that are odd, maybe a little gothic, weird, and just fun!
We think what Alison makes is Monsterous Fun!

My Interview with Cherry Bomb!
Find Out What It Is Like To Become A Custom MH Doll
GZ: Good evening Cherry. Welcome to My Monster Crush.
CB: Thanks Big G.
GZ: I must say, when the first photos hit my desk top, I thought, “Wow, her head is blown off!” Then I looked at the rest of the photos.
GZ: I would like to walk through this with you step by step. I also have a question that comes first—what does it feel like to be a Custom?
CB: Well GZ, it was actually a bit frightening at first. Then I realized, I was like a child or other member of the family. So much care is taken with a Custom like myself. I feel honored. Too bad you weren’t around to interview Valentina. She could really tell you some stories!
GZ: I know, I know. Valentina is now a legend around the studio. But, Cherry, I am sitting here with you. What frightened you at first?
CB: Oh, well, first there was the blow dryer! Hot, hot, hot! And my head started flipping down- then came the wrestling match. My head was removed and I thought, “What is this?!”
GZ: Sends a shiver down my spine!
CB: Exactly! Then, the scissors come out. Snip, snip, snip. Most of my hair is gone. Then the needle nose pliers- and the plucking begins. After all of my hair was removed, my head was put into my lap! Honestly, I was wondering what was next. I was really frightened.
GZ: So what calmed you down?
CB: The new hair! I mean, its just fabulous. First, the color! And it went in with great care. I realized as I was getting my re-root, that those hands were very careful about everything. I started to wonder what was next in a whole new way. Now I was excited to see what was coming next.
GZ: The custom process didn’t stop with the hair. What came next?
CB: The body blushing. Then my body was sealed. What came after might have scared me, but I was trusting the process by then.
GZ: So, what came next?
CB: Remover! First my lip color was removed, then my eyebrows and of course my eyes.
GZ: Then the painting began?
CB: Yes! I got green eyes and red lips and blushed cheeks- it took 3 days- because of my eyes, but it was marvelous!
GZ: Why did the eyes take so long Cherry?
CB: 30 thin layers of paint and Sakura Crystal. 30!
GZ: Amazing. What was next?
CB: Wardrobe. (she stands up twirls around) You like?
GZ: If you could see beneath my scales…
CB: (Laughing) I can imagine! Being a Custom is such fun!
GZ: I understand you are leaving us and going to a new home in Tennesee?
CB: Yes I am! Me and Kaboom. I am very happy. I will be living with many other Custom Monster High Ghouls there. I can hardly wait!
GZ: I wish you all the best in your new home.
One last question,
“What is the difference between a Custom and a Re-Paint? Is there a difference?”
CB: What a great question Big G. I don’t know if there is really a difference- but in my mind there is a difference. A Custom has everything. New hair, new paint, new clothes and sometimes new ears, horns, a pet- or some other thing that makes them stand out. Custom’s usually have a theme. A story, if you will.
I have my dog Kaboom, and a nice set of clothes made just for me- and look at my shoes! Painted to match me! So, I think of a Custom as having the works.
GZ: Very thoughtful answer Cherry. Thank You.
Cherry left and we missed her the moment she was out the door.
