One of the best parts about our road trip was finding my favourite She-Ra figure, Catra, at a thrift store! When I entered the store I saw a He-Man figure on a shelf. I love Masters of the Universe but I was not particularly interested in this figure so I left it, but I was kind of hoping there might more.
I was going through a shelf with Barbie and similar dolls very thoroughly without finding anything good, but as I was about to leave I saw something pink and black in the adjoining shelf which I had only quickly looked through since it didn’t seem to contain anything interesting. It was Catra!
So not only did I find another MotU figure, but a She-Ra one (unusual in Sweden, I’ve never seen one at a thrift store before and don’t know anyone who had them when I was a kid), and not only a She-Ra figure but my favourite! Plus, it was even my favourite version, Scratchin’ sound Catra.
I’ve had these rock candies and a crystal shaped bouncing ball lying around for a while, thinking they’d look good with my She-Ra figures.
I’ve also had these two absolutely stunning pieces of skull shaped candy lying around since our trip. I bought them just because they were beautiful and immediately thought of them swooping through the air with flames behind.
When I saw all these things together it felt obvious to make a seance photoshoot with a crystal ball and ectoplasmic spirits.
