I told myself no blogging today. We see how well that worked. But I just had to share this one.
I have some wonderful "light bulb" moments when I am replying to comments or emails. It happened again this morning. I was conversing with mrscarissa (a blog reader), who was sharing pictures of her Kara on a DG Reese body. She also shared Kara's two kids and mentioned that her husband was a curly haired MyScene guy.
I know that curly haired MyScene guy. I had just brought him up from (all together now) THE BASEMENT, so that I could steal his outfit for Darius. Hadn't quite gotten to that project yet. As I sat there replying to mrscarissa, I was about to offer her my nude MyScene guy, but then it dawned on me "I think he is articulated"! I never paid attention to that because none of the MyScene girls that I have are articulated. I never imagined the guy would be articulated. I ran downstairs to check. Yes, he is fully articulated in the arms and legs. I quickly snapped a picture of him in his box, then proceeded to remove him from the box to check the neck connection. I then looked for one of my males that could use some articulation. There he was! The Kurt Fashion Fever doll I bought from Ms. Leo.
He has slightly longer arms than Ken and bigger hands. He can fit some of the clothes, but the long sleeved shirts will have to be pushed up. Now that I think about it, some of Ken's shirts are too small for Ken. LOL.
Did you know he has real feet? I had no idea. From the looks of those oversized rubber shoes, I thought they were built in, like the Bratz shoes.
The neck connection is a really good fit. The body is a tad darker but not noticeably so. His wife is awfully happy. He can now hug her back.
I immediately ran to the basement to recheck my other two MyScene female dolls. No, they are not articulated. Madison does have real feet, though. Another Mattel mystery. Why make him articulated and not the girls?
