(May the 4th be with you!)
It's been raining in Maine for what feels like forever. It's good for the flowers, I know, but after a while, it gets kind of old. To cheer things up, I decided to do a giveaway! The Monster High poll is now closed. Thank goodness. The all-caps heading on that poll was giving me a headache. Anyway, with a healthy 64% of the vote, Cupid won the distinction of being the hardest Monster High doll to find in stores. This isn't surprising, really, since she's a Valentine's Day themed doll exclusive to Walmart. Skull Shores Frankie got second place, but if the five zillion Skull Shores Frankie dolls at my local Toys R Us right now are any indication, that information is slightly out of date.
I managed to get my hands on a Cupid the other day. Here she is--and she could be yours!
|Monster High C.A. Cupid|
First of all, I have no idea what the "C.A." in her name stands for. I'd love to know, if anyone has the scoop on that.
I removed her from the outer box so I could share a few pictures with everyone without the glare from the plastic window, but I'm going to put her right back in the box so she looks brand new for whoever wins her! She has a great face. I like it much better in person than I did looking at pictures online.
|She has tiny heart-shaped sparkles in her eyes!|
|She's wearing some sort of dart-shooting apparatus on her hand.|
|She has a heart-shaped purse with black dripping off of it--very strange!|
|Her hair is pinker than it looks in this picture.|
|I love the vintage look of pink and black together, and the dripping|
black paint (blood?) around the waistline is cool.
Cupid comes with a stand, but no pet and no diary. Her shoes look great next to her black feet:
So, how can you win her? I am not an expert at online giveaway contests or anything, but here's what I came up with:
1. Make a post in the comment section saying what your very favorite doll or toy is and why. This will be fun for everyone to read, and it'll get you entered in the giveaway.
2. Be sure you have a Google identity so I can make sure I am mailing the right doll to the right person. I can't accept "Anonymous" entries because they are...anonymous. Sorry.
3. Next Friday, I will put all of the entered names together and draw the winning name out of a hat without peeking! Maybe I'll even have a little video of the name being drawn right here on the blog.
4. You can comment as many times as you want, but I will only enter each name once.
I'll actually draw three names out of a hat because I have Operetta:
And Sweet 1600 Frankie Stein:
As runner-up prizes. Sound fun? And if only three people enter, then everyone's a winner! Let's say you win first place and want Operetta instead of Cupid--no problem. Then the second place winner can choose between Franke and Cupid, and so forth.
I'd get the ball rolling by telling you my favorite doll and why, but you already probably know who it is.
