The Monster High C.A. Cupid doll is easily the prettiest stock doll I’ve ever bought! Check her out in all her lovely, slightly creepy, glory…
Her stock is incredible… the outfit is beautiful, the shoes and accessories are well themed, and the wings?
My GOTH the wings. They actually attach to her as a necklace (shaped like a curved arrow!) which I think is a pretty clever idea. They’re creepy and gory without being out of place, but they still manage to take the edge off all her pink sugariness.
The tiny little Quiver Ring is adorable, and the lace painting on her hands and legs is just beautiful. For some reason I haven’t got a closeup of her shoes, but they’re beyond cute. One heel is a bow, the other an arrow… and it’s the same story for her earrings too. Little details like this make me happy. :heart:
Her hair is nicely styled, but absolutely rock hard with glue (or whatever it is that Mattel use to set the styles). I trimmed a few rogue bits off it with some really sharp nail scissors, but other than that it’s lovely. She doesn’t come with a brush, but does come with a pink stand.
I love her makeup, even if it is a little harsh on the lips. I’ve seen a couple of Cupid dolls on Flickr with a little bit of lip blushing added afterwards, and this does seem to soften it a lot. I’ve not decided if I’ll go ahead with it on mine though. For now, the teeny tiny hearts in her pupils are keeping me distracted and happy!
Verdict? Totally smitten. Super happy that I’ve been able to get hold of this lady. Oh, and a quick heads up for anyone in the UK looking for C. A. Cupid – the eBay auction for one of my spare Cupids is still running. Check it out here. :heart:
