I kind of figured Cleo de Nile would be my first Monster High doll. As I mentioned in a previous entry, I walked by the Monster High selection at Wal*Mart several times
before really noticing them on Flickr and getting curious. I'd vaguely noticed Cleo's face and I liked how much character she had, but she was in a set with this 'green plastic-headed thing' and the price was obscene so, yeah, not too much interest there.
I'm weird, probably, in feeling like she was somewhat misrepresented in the little webisodes. She's filling the typical 'diva' role, like Cordelia in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I don't think that's actually her personality, although I'll definitely agree that she's got some sass and isn't the nicest girl around. (Honestly she's kind of derpy in the show?)
) got her for me. $9.85 Dead Tired version. I took some of the ridiculous tinsel out of her hair because she looked like some kind of tree ornament. It's still in there, but thinned out. I like it better now, and she looks better in photographs without all that junk screwing up my camera's flash.
She hates all the Bratz outfits I tried her in so I've left her in her jammies on my desk.
