My Stardoll This picture was taken before I learned how to remove jewelry. I no longer wear a collar. LOL.
I am taking a break from playing.....
So I just spent about an hour playing. AMAZING! This is the ultimate in on-line doll play. I am not going to be able to describe it to you, but I will give a brief synopsis. You are given a doll to customize, a suite to decorate and a closet to store all your clothes and accessories.. You are given a small wardrobe to start with. Of course you can buy more clothes, accessories, home furnishings, etc with your Starpoints. You get a nice amount of Starpoints to start with and you earn more along the way just by playing.
You can design your own clothes (and sell them if you like) in the Fashion Design Studio. You can design rooms in the Interior Design Studio. You can make movies in the Movie Studio. These studios are beyond what you can imagine. You can create your own fabrics, etc.
Don't forget to go shopping. There are HUNDREDS of clothes available to you to buy with your Starpoints. You can try them on your Stardoll before you buy them. The clothes are just phenomenal. I am excited because this will definitely help me with my own fashion designs and the whole styling process. For anyone who has played with paper dolls, this is paper doll play to the nth degree.
I can see why Mattel wanted to pair up with Stardolls, but I don't believe they translated it well to the doll world. They gave the real dolls the exact same body pose that the on-line dolls have. Works perfect on-line. Not so much in real life. Now I know what I will be doing in the wee hours of the morning when I can't sleep. I will be playing with my Stardoll.....on-line.
I'm baaaack.... So after playing for a couple more hours, I have to make a slight revision. That Starpoints you get can not be used to buy clothes, etc. You need Stardollars to buy those things. You can buy those, or you can jump through a few hoops to earn some. But you can still play and try on all the clothes without buying them. That is probably what I will do. I may add a couple of pieces, but I will stick to my free wardrobe to start with. I also discovered there are tons of celebrity Stardolls that you can play with and they have their own complete wardrobes.
