Wondering what to price these dolls at for sale.  They are Monster High dolls that have been stripped of color, repainted & sealed, new clothes & accessories made.  The Sally dolls have red wigs and the Emily dolls use the MH hair.  I have seen them sell for $60 - $300 depending on the work/skill involved.  

Not sure how to add pictures or how to link to my gallery but will try to.

Outside of that, my daughter The Precioussss used to repaint Monster Highs and she's gotten as much as $300+ from ebay auctions for a makeup/costume re-do without any copyright infringements.

I haven't sold any customizations, but I have been working on custom Blythe dolls, so I've spent a lot of time looking into this.

I'd say to try Ebay. Most of the people who seem to sell the extremely high end dolls (I'm talking thousands of dollars) sell through Ebay, so the demand is what sets the price.

I would also be careful of the copyright infringement. Disney isn't too friendly about that topic. You could try some fun gothy styles of your own that would probably wind up selling better due to the originality. There are plenty of Sally action figures already on the market, but your original designs would be unique to you.
