Just a quick flyby to say that
a) Everything hurts. I said that as I hobbled downstairs and then new things started to hurt (what the hell!) and now I'm just going to hush and return to bed before work.

b) AG is actually entering the world o' custom dolls. Looks like you'll be able to order them at the new New York store (I would imagine online as well but who knows) and no prices have been given but people are guessing they're going to be freakin' expensive.

On the one hand, I agree that AG ain't exactly shy about charging insane prices on things. See their $50 cardboard box if you need reminding. On the other hand, if they're actually expecting this to be something that takes off and isn't simply super niche, they can't price it too high everyone will simply continue to use their favorite custom artists or do it themselves. People are talking like the $200+ range and I'm thinking guys? For that price you take two dolls you sorta like and then you swap things around and voila! Two dolls you like. Assuming that if you're eye swapping things don't go south. And that assumes you used two brand new dolls that you didn't get on sale and most people plan their customs better so...

On the other other hand, if they're smart they'll go all in on the options and make it so you can get any mold in any shade (so light, medium, and dark, I guess) and any eye color or hair color and cut (they've shown a Josefina mold with a bleach blonde pixie cut) and freckles... basically the bigger they go with this, the more I'd feel it's worth it. If they half ass it, I'm going to resume pointing and laughing.
