Bratz girlfriend Nite Out Dance Disco

I paid $5 for this at the thrift store. I bought it because I've never seen it before. I wanted to check it out. 

This is why I like thrift stores. Well, besides the price. I can find things there that are longer carried in the regular stores. There have been lots of stuff that I've missed. 

I've made a couple of electric guitars for my dolls. At some point, I'm going to make or buy a drum set for them. They're going to need a stage to perform on and a dressing room. I wanted to see if I could use this. 

It's a combination dance floor/nightclub setup. It also has dressing rooms on both sides of the nightclub. 

These are photos of the box it came in. It's huge. 

This is going to be a short post because I have no idea what to do with this thing. 

Here's the stage. 

This is the runway or something. It has lights that flash. It doesn't really do anything interesting like play music. 

This is the backstage/nightclub part. You can see the dressing rooms on the sides. 

It came with a few accessories like a compact, chair, cocktail glass, hair dryer, hangers and that's it. Originally, there were a lot more. 

My apartment is very small so I don't think I'll keep this. It's huge and cumbersome. Takes up a lot of room. And doesn't seem useful. It's too small for any of my dolls besides the regular Bratz. 

I'll salvage anything I can and get rid of the rest.

Calico Critters Townhouse

I got a Capico Critters Townhouse from the thrift store for $4. It came with some kitchen furniture and a complete bathroom set. There are battery powered lights in two rooms of the house. The house is also in two pieces but I just place them next to each other.

Calico Critters toys are outrageously expensive so it's nice when I find them at the thrift store much cheaper.

Here are some photos.

This house is quite small. 

This is where I put the kitchen furniture but I actually think it's the living room. 

A very small bedroom above the kitchen. I took some of the furniture from my Lalaloopsie dollhouse and put in here. 

I made this room the play room because it's so tiny. It's right next to the bathroom. 

I like the bedroom that leads out to the balcony. This didn't come with any rails so I took them from the Calico Critters Market I got and put them on the house. Some day I'll get around to making rails for the balcony. 

This is the very crowded and small bathroom, the playroom and the living room. There aren't any lights in these rooms. Some day I'll get around to putting lights in these rooms. 

Closer look at the bathroom. 

Closer look at the kitchen. Mrs. Raccoon likes to cook. 

Closer look at the one bedroom. 

As you can see, it's very small. It's also missing some crucial pieces like the stairs and the balcony rails but I don't mind. I still think it's cute. 

No way would I pay full price for this because of the size and the fact it doesn't come with any furniture, fixtures (except the two lights), wallpaper, curtains, or Critters.   

I read on the internet that you can download wallpaper from but the website doesn't seem to be working. 

It's still a nice addition to my growing dollhouse collection.

Liv Doll Sophie Styling Head

I got this at a thrift store recently. I paid $1.99 for it. These are still being sold on Amazon for a ridiculous amount of money and much cheaper on eBay. 

Originally they came with a wig, plastic jewelry and hair clips. As you can see, mine didn't have any of that. 

I got it because it was so cheap and I love Liv dolls. They're the best. Most of the 12 inch dolls I buy get a new Liv doll body. 

I use this as a wig stand for one of my wigs. 

Here she in one of my wigs. It looks cute on her. Doesn't look bad on me, either. 

This is much better than those white, styrofoam wig things they sell at the hair supply store and it's just as affordable.

GI Joe and Alexis at the Beach

This is a short, funny little movie I made with GI Joe and Alexis. They up to their usual antics.
