Easter Week EEK!

 Monster Bunnies

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.

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!

As Promised --
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.

CB: (Laughs, knowingly)

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.
