So I was scrolling through Ebay because there was housework to do and BORING when I came across some stuff you just really have to get! I mean this stuff is just so . . . it’s just . . . wow. Like better than someone’s plucked mustache remains wow. Or a booger that is shaped just like the Virgin Mary wow. Or . . . I’ll get to the ebay finds.
I didn’t find any boogers. I didn’t look for any either. But I DID find . . .
- Evil Fairy Godmother
Wow, you gotta love them camera angels. This doll isn’t really that scary in real life. I know because I have one, not the “new” Helena Bonham Carter sexy fairy godmother, but the bean bag fat bottomed fairy. You know, cause when it comes to fairy godmothers, it’s all about da base. But wow, maybe this person should have thought a little more before shooting this picture in the dark with that lightning cause she scares the crap out of me. Please don’t fulfill any wishes, Satan – er Fairy Godmother!
2. Face Off Necklaces
Yes, according to this, that is the face of Belle, though I’m not sure how you’d tell her face from any other severed doll face. It kind of reminds me of that Oscar-Worthy Face-Off movie where John (wacky Scientologist) Travolta and Nicholas (just whack) Cage switch faces because . . . they had special effects? I forget. Anyway, I think this artist should move on and try to cash in on that movie with Nick Cage and Travolta necklaces because nothing would ward off evil fairy godmothers like a couple of those guys’ faces around your neck. Just sayin’.
3. What’s that under your dress, Tiana?
Yes, yes, SEEMS like a normal doll. AT FIRST.
So all this time Tiana’s been hiding a giant frog under her dress. Why? Or . . . or is that part of her body? In case you missed the movie, or actually watched it and still missed half of it (like I did), Tiana turns into a frog along with her prince for a while and wacky hijinks ensue. But then she becomes human at the end. At least . . . we thought she did. That must have been a weird wedding night.
4. And now for something normal . . . but stupid.
No, the weird thing about this isn’t the price tag (though it does boggle my mind). It’s not the pin either, even though it’s just a face with no body. It’s more like the fact that the girl in question is not Cinderella. Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t expect everyone to know Disney like I obsessively do, but if you can’t figure out who this girl is, you might want to say, look at the title of the blog you’ve been reading. Look familiar now?
Hint: It’s Alice in Wonderland! Try doing some research Ebay person! And that’s not all. One more example.
This one is even less subtle, but to fill any of you non-Disney freaks in, Mulan is from China. She wears a dress just like that. But that’s not Mulan, it’s someone from Arabia. That’s right, it’s Cinderella! No, no, no it’s Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. Mulan’s kinda paler, and has those slanted eyes, and is, you know, an entirely different ethnicity. But hey, it’s tough enough to tell them apart when they’re white, am I right?
I have so many more to show, but I’ll keep it short so that I can
milk one more post out of this save some fabulous stuff for next time!
5. Puppy abuse, princess style
I’m not going to make you guess which princess dress this is, because it’s not important. Also it’s in the heading. The most important thing is that this poor little pampered pet is being forced to wear a princess dress. And just look at that pleading face! I mean, the dog has a hard enough time hanging out with other dogs considering it looks like a rather large furry gerbil with ponytails. Then you put the dress on her. You’ve doomed your dog to getting her butt kicked on the playground. If she’s lucky. Shame on you, puppy parents.
Want to see more Ebay finds? Especially ones that revolve around Disney since that’s what I search for a lot (be thankful I don’t search for boogers). I thought so! I will dig some more up from the dregs of Ebay, just for you guys! Because that’s the kind of sharing Alice I am. You’re welcome.
Ebay really is like the world’s biggest garage sale- but with a twist. I mean, generally speaking you won’t have someone at a garage sale trying to sell you something for 10,000 dollars or more, but with Ebay there really is no limit. Even if it’s total crap. Oh, there are some really nice finds on Ebay, if you look hard enough. But I’m not here to talk about those, of course. I’m here to talk about the crap, cause that’s what I do.
Since I collect Disney dolls, most of this stuff will be related to dolls, figurines, etc. So keep in mind that this is barely scratching the surface of crap. There’s loads more of it. I need a new metaphor.
Anyway, here’s just five of my favorite Ebay finds, just in case anyone has a kid (or an immature adult) with a birthday coming up in June. Like say my Things and me. Not that I want anyone to get me a birthday gift. Yes I do. I want this. You should be able to swing it with no problem.
I will say that one of my lovely readers DID give me a gift, just because she loves me. Unlike the rest of you. 🙂
Mental Mama gave me everything but the bunny, who I dressed up with the fabulous blue bangs to look like Ringo from the Beatles. He says the cocoa is FABULOUS. But enough of that stuff, let’s get to the gifts that are guaranteed to make your recipients notice!
OOAK dolls (One-of-a-kind)
I’ve recently discovered the world of OOAK dolls, and may I say, I’m impressed. Many people have great talent and easily turn out works of art much better than the original Disney molds, especially if you’re talking about dog-faced, measles infected Rapunzel. Then there are the other ones.
1. Bride of Chuckie
First off, here is the before picture.
and the AFTER PICTURE . . .
I’m pretty sure I saw this doll staring at me last night. All night long. Just in case that one didn’t frighten you, here’s another picture of her for future nightmares.
Thing Two just informed me she’s apparently the sister of Balloon Boy (Balloon Girl???) from the jump-scare horror game “Five Nights at Freddie’s”, and for only 150 dollars! Just look at the resemblance! And by all means, do not lose power in your house.
2. Amputation and a Haircut, 2 bits
This doll was actually tagged as an OOAK because of her new haircut that absolutely wasn’t done by a young child or anything. Oh and the added headband. There are a few warnings given – in creative story form! –
“This Disney Tangled Barbie Doll got tired of her Tangled Hair so she got a Custom Cut! She now has a cute, short, asymmetric bangs layered cut that can be held back by her purple headband. She has such a sweet face! Her arms move both back and forth and out to the sides. Her legs are jointed at the knee, but she did have an accident….fell out of her tower (as she had no long hair to climb down :))….and sustained a right leg below knee amputation! Her broken off leg is included, so the new owner can glue it back on if desired. She does have a tiny, manufacturing “beauty mark” dot at the base of her neck as seen in the photos. She may have very light playwear marks. She comes dressed in her purple dress with pretty lace around the neckline. Please view all photos carefully!”
Hey, honey, here’s Rapunzel. What happened? Oh, the evil witch cut off all her hair and pushed her out of her tower and her leg came completely off – why are you crying?
Speaking of amputations, these are the dolls or figurines that just need a little bit of good old TLC. And super glue. And likely a trash bin.
3. “Let it go” does not mean body parts
What’s fun about this one is that the seller didn’t bother to include the hand or the foot, so there’s no gluing back, not like with Rapunzel who could have had her lower leg glued back on. She’d never bend her knee again, but with custom hair like that, who can complain? But what I love the most is the explanation of the ornament’s condition.
Item has broken hands and missing foot – a beautiful ornament at a discount price!
Did they take a dollar off for each missing appendage?
4. Non-Singing Singing Doll
Now this is a prize. Sure she’s a singing doll that doesn’t, you know, technically sing. And her arm is broken. And it looks like her one usable arm was stuck in a light socket cause that hair be freakin’. But other than that, I see no reason not to spend 26 dollars on her, do you? Bargain price.
Boxes. Just the Boxes.
5. No, really, take a look.
I”d heard of people selling dolls without the boxes, but boxes without the dolls? If they’re special limited edition boxes, yes, people will pay for only the box! And they’ll pay more for the boxes than for most dolls. Good news for babies who have mastered their I-Pads. They can finally get their favorite thing for Christmas! But watch out for the collectors!
Well that’s all for now, kiddies, but let me just leave you with one little thing. It’s under the desk. Take a peek.
Come on, it’s okay.
Just one look.
Don’t be a fraidy cat.
Yeah you should really never listen to me. Or go on Ebay. Scary stuff out there. I’m waiting for “Five Nights on Ebay” to hit the video game shelves any day now. And yes, she’ll be there.
