Yesterday I went to Big Lots. Big Mistake. Huge!
So, yesterday I had to travel about an hour out of my area. I decided to visit the one Big Lots in town. Who knows, maybe there will be some AA PowerTeam guys lurking about. I also wanted to check if they had the Justin Bieber doll that I had seen at a few other Big Lots.
Justin was there. They had 4 different versions and I liked this face best of all.
They also had a few BFC dolls. I had passed on this set about 5 months ago, but was very happy to see it again. They are not much bigger than the Only Heart dolls, so I am making them 11 or 12 yr old twins.
I had seen this PowerTeam guy when I went on my last Big Lots rampage. Didn't get him at the time, but after going to 6 stores and realizing that the pickings were very slim, I wished I had gotten him, too. So I grabbed him when I saw him this time. I couldn't believe that they had the exact same 4 PowerTeam guys that were available in my area. Oh well.
Together they make up part of my new Hispanic family. They are my first official Hispanic family and I am glad they are on board.
This was one of the other guys that I had passed up several times before. I always liked his look, but wasn't willing to spend money on him in the event I found another guy that I liked better. This time I had a purpose in mind for him. Not to mention, I think he is going to look nice redressed.
Remember my darling Kara and her daughter? Well, I thought this guy would fit into this family. I feel the little girl resembles him a little and they both have blue eyes. I am thinking that he is the drummer or guitarist in Kara's band. He already has a name. It is Terry. I think.
Speaking of Kara....I found this one on the bottom shelf, next to a Grace doll. They were the only SIS dolls there. How did I justify buying my third Kara doll? Well, I was going to buy the Mattel Design Your Own Doll (using the Kara head), because I loved the hair on that doll. That would have cost me $30-$35 and I would have had a great Tshirt, other fashions that I wasn't interested in, and an unarticulated body. So this was a better choice. I can always make her a custom Tshirt. Look at me, saving money. LOLOL!
The new video is just about finished and will be loaded by tomorrow. Today I am headed to a doll show. Good thing I paid the important bills already. This could get ugly. See you tomorrow.
