New Fashionistas

September was a great month for Moreville. Several new ladies moved in much to the appreciation and joy of all the single guys in town. I managed to get everyone together before they all scattered off and got involved in their lives.

Here are the first three. They haven't "told" me their names yet, but they will in due time. The Asian lady in the middle has bendable arms and wrists but not legs. It's awkward but I can work with it. She had such a cute face and clothes, I just couldn't pass her up. She's a sophomore at Moreville College.

Here is a closer look. I've already re-bodied the African American lady and the redhead. 

Here are the other three. The African American lady on the left has articulated ankles. She can wear high heels or flats. I was on the fence about getting the Asian lady because I didn't have any articulated bodies I could use to re-body her with. She's just too pale. Do any of you have any suggestions as to which doll I could use to re-body her with?

Here's a closer look. Raquel is not new. I've had her for awhile but never got around to de-boxing her until now.

The new girls have made themselves right at home at Casey's. Looks like Ryan's enjoying the view. Good thing Anna Lee isn't the jealous type. LOL :-)

A Visit To Aaron's English Class

Aaron invited his friend Jarrod to come to his English class and talk about his job as the sports editor for the Moreville Times. Aaron hoped that Jarrod's visit would generate more interest in writing among his students. We'll have to wait and see about that.

Looks like the kids really liked Jarrod. I'm not sure any of them would choose a writing career, but you never know. Aaron's plan seems to have worked. The kids didn't grumble so much about writing papers after Jarrod's visit. :-)

New Girls in Town

I'd like to introduce you all to the three newest Moreville residents.

From left to right they are Hannah, Julia and Jessie. Hannah is the 2015 Birthday Wishes doll. Julia is one of the new City Shine dolls, and Jessie is from the previous City Shine collection.

Wave to the nice people ladies. Thank you. As you can see, they've all been re-bodied.

Oh, and that's Tim waving from the next table. I don't think the lady he's with appreciates the fact that he's been admiring these three since they sat down.

Looks like Tim isn't the only one admiring the new ladies.

I wasn't going to get Jessie (blond City Shine) because I'm not crazy about sideways glancers. They're harder to photograph and position right for the story lines. But Walmart had her on clearance, and I couldn't resist. After re-bodying and re-dressing her, I had a change of heart. She's just beautiful! Hannah (Birthday Wishes) was a gift from Marianne. Julia (City Shine Redhead) came from Amazon. I had her on my wish list for awhile, and when they dropped her price to $19.99, I snapped her right up. I never could resist a good sale. So two major price drops and a gift. I must be living right. :-)

A Quick Review

I finally broke down and purchased the new Tris Insurgent doll. I wasn't going to get her, but when I saw her in Target she finally "spoke" to me. Her short hair makes her look cute and sassy, and she'll be a perfect addition to my college kids.

Here she is deboxed.

A close-up view.

I really hate the fact that her arms don't bend.

Her legs bend though. I don't understand why Mattel made the first Tris doll fully articulated and not this one.

I rebodied her on the first Tris' body. The skin tone isn't a perfect match, but it's very close. She'll be Tris' sister, tattoos and all. I don't know her name yet.

Tris and her sister wound up at Bella Donna's for lunch after a successful visit to Dr. Carlyle.

I think Tris' sister will blend in very well with the other students at Moreville College. I'm not sure what she'll study, but the college has many different programs for her to choose from. She's very smart, so she'll do well in whatever course of study she decides on. :-)

The Double Date

After Arty got back from the tech convention, he, Lauren, Cameron and Adaline went out for dinner at Bella Donna's. He knew Cameron liked Adaline a lot and didn't want to do anything that would embarrass his brother in front of her. But unexpected things have a way of happening whenever Arty is around...

I hope they remember to take plenty of water with them as well. It'll help counteract the dehydrating effects of the wine. Of course, all four of them are seasoned wine drinkers, so I'm sure they'll go prepared. Maybe they'll bring back some souvenir glasses - if Arty doesn't accidentally break them that is. :-)
