Ghoul of the Week: Part Four.

It's Classroom Home Ick Frankie Stein!

She's my reward to myself for writing twenty-two pages of my novel this week. I actually wrote thirty-two, but I didn't start my reward system until Tuesday. I think that her outfit is a little silly, but her hair and makeup are beautiful. Frankie looks different with bangs/fringe, doesn't she?

Now I need to light a fire under my ass to get myself started again. What if I don't feel the need to open another Monster High doll right away?

Even compared to new and exotic dolls like Nefera de Nile, I love Frankie most of all.

Oh home ick frankie is pretty cute. I've been trying to decide which version of frankie to go with (cause I only buy one of each character). Found the draculaura that I love best (skull shores with the sweet 1600 dress), now I need a frankie! This one is pretty cute I must say. Will see if I can have a look at her at TRU.

Skull Shores Draculaura is really lovely. I managed to snag one for my sister from Amazon for $12.99. That was the most luck I've ever had buying a Monster High doll!

If I were to recommend one Frankie, I'd either look for this one or the 1st version, provided you can find one without wonky eyes/eyebrows. I love the silvery eyeshadow and red lips on Home Ick Frankie. Some people have issues with her hair, but mine is just fine.

Yeah, I've seen both wave 1 and wave 2 frankies, plus the sweet 1600 one. I like the hair on the wave 2, but wasn't crazy about the makeup or outfit (though I'm usually more forgiving about outfits because you can always change them). Wave 1, I liked the outfit but wasn't crazy about the hair. Sweet 1600 I like a lot, but I've heard lots of complaints about the hair falling out and other issues. This one I like the hair and the outfit is kind of cute. I think they have the class room dolls at TRU so I'm going to go check her out. :)

As someone who owns wave 2 Frankie, I think her makeup is a tad too dark for my tastes. She doesn't look quite like herself. She does have nice hair, but it loses strands when I run my fingers through it.

I have yet to see the ultimate Frankie Stein. I actually really like the hair a lot on the Dead Tired version. I don't know what it is about me and side-ponytails on dolls. They look ridiculous on human beings, but I love them on dolls!

Hey, good job on the novel! I like your reinforcement scheme better than NaNoWriMo. :D

Thank you! :D I don't think I'd ever be able to do NaNoWriMo. It would take me more than a month to plan for a novel, let alone write it! The most I've ever written in a month was a short story that was 45 pages typed. Sixty-something pages handwritten...and that certainly wasn't a novel!
