Moxie Fusion Doll

So I saw this cutey at Kmart and had to buy her right away. It is a Moxie doll released by MGA Entertainment.
Apparently it was because they were sued by Mattel over their Bratz dolls and Mattel won. So now they've come out with these much cuter (less slutty) looking dolls.
Well at first glance I loved how they have cute anime like faces, and super long thick hair, and darling outfits.
Once I got her home I found that the body was quite small compared to the head, had no pose-ability and worst of all there are no feet. Where feet should have been are little stubs which shoes attach to. This is well known for Bratz as well, except the bratz feet don't fit the moxie ones, and there is no accessory pack for moxie feet, so you are stuck with whatever style you have. Which to me defeats part of the purpose of a fashion doll; dressing them up and accessorizing.

Do not be dismayed though we have fixed the problem and it turned out beautifully!
Mattel has released a fully poseable barbie line known as Fashionista's.
So we put the Moxie head on the barbie Fashionista body.

Tada! First of all it looks a lot more proportional and makes the barbie much prettier.
I love the poseability and especially being able to have different shoes on her.

Here she's dressed in various styles and with her hair done. The moxie heads have a lot more hair, its a lot longer then barbies, and quite a bit softer too.

I plan to design some cute doll clothes for these fusion dolls, and have also been experimenting with giving them elf ears. More to come......
