In Defense of Monster High Pt 1- Why Ghouls Rule!I've made several guest appearances on podcasts lately discussing the latest 100 megaton drama bomb to hit our community, codenamed Equestria Girls. Don't worry, me borthers (and sisters.) Your humble narrator has no interest in rehashing the history of the animated film. At this point we all know what it is, quite a few of us have seen it, and most all of us have made up our minds one way or t'other.
In Defense of Monster High Pt 2- GhouliaYesterday I touched upon the idea that the real failing of Equestria Girls, at least insofar as the toyline, is that it is geared towards one specific goal- getting a piece of the monster-sized success of Monster High while ignoring the details that have made MH so successful.
In Defense of Monster High Pt3- SkelitaBefore we begin, a quick apology. I am currently without power here at Pixelkitties Manor thanks to the ginormous storm that spanked Pittsburgh yesterday and last night, so I am posting this update via my tablet. I am a terrible typist and proofreader at the best of times, and sitting here pecking at a touchscreen, I worry that this is going to be an incoherent mess! If I sound like an idiot, it's mostly because I'm laboring under less-than-ideal circumstances. And...partially because I'm an idiot. Anyway, on with the stuff!
In Defense of Monster High Part 4- Jinafire LongFirst of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to read, comment, and give my foray into non-pony related content a chance. My impetus behind this series of journals was pushing back against many MLP fan's perception that the Monster High influence was Equestria Girls' biggest fault. Obviously I disagree, and I believe that, quite the opposite, what Monster High is a toyline that others should absolute emulate in terms of quality and design competency. It really means a lot to me that you all have taken the time to give these journals, and Monster High, half a chance! Thanks for reading!
In Defense of Monster High Pt 5 Celestia GhouliaHello dear readers and friends who appreciate all things involving candy ponies and ghouls that rule! It's been a month or so since my last journal devoted to comparing the Monster High doll series to the (at the time) upcoming Equestria Girls line. Well now I've picked up quite a few of the Equestria Girls dolls myself and I can make a much better judgment as to whether and how they stack up to Monster High.
