She comes with a stand, brush, diary, iCoffin, and pen. The box has a cute insert of the Black Carpet. She wears a gold and black accented outfit, red and black jacket, red knee socks, golden Mary Jane heels, golden necklace, black earrings, black glasses, and a black bracelet.
Clawdia has arrived on the Black Carpet and the photographers are going nuts! She strikes a pose. She can stand without assistance in her shoes.
As much as she is enjoying her moment in the spotlight, she'd much rather share the moment with her siblings. She checks her iCoffin to see if she can get an ETA from her siblings.
Meanwhile, Clawdia poses for a close-up. Unlike her siblings, Clawdia has a toothy grin, and her fangs are molded instead of simply painted on. My Clawdia has a little bit of lipstick on her teeth. Click the photo below to enlarge.
Clawdia's siblings would not keep their big sister waiting long! Pictured below are Howleen, Clawdeen, Clawdia, and Clawd. Howleen is the youngest, then Clawdeen, Clawd, and Clawdia is the oldest at 19 years of age. Wait, isn't she kind of old to be in Monster High? She seems like a smart girl, so I couldn't imagine that she would still be in high school at her age. I had to read her journal to find out all about her adventures in Londoom as she sits through lectures at school, writes screamplays, and navigates through life on her own for the first time with the support of her family.
Clawdia is taller than her sisters. She has a slightly longer torso, longer legs, and she is more developed.
Clawdia is slightly shorter than Clawd, even in her heels. He will always be Little Brother to her, though.
Clawdia takes a moment to strike one last pose on the Black Carpet without her jacket. She finds that she is able to pose much better without it. I wish that her necklace and shoes were more of a metallic gold color, like her dress. But her necklace and shoes match her golden hair, so I won't complain (much). I really like her dress.
Later on, the family relaxes together and they talk about all of the things that are happening in their lives. Clawdia is able to sit quite naturally and cross her legs. The way that Clawdia's and Howleen's legs attach differs from how Clawdeen's legs attach. Clawdia's and Howleen's legs have plastic attachments, while Clawdeen's legs are attached with elastic bands. One of Clawdeen's legs fell off, and it was difficult to re-attach it. Clawdeen does not pose as well as her sister, so I am glad that they have made this improvement.
The Wolf sisters can not share shoes. Pictured below from left to right are Howleen's, Clawdeen's, and Clawdia's feet. Clawdia's feet are longer and wider than her sisters' feet.
They can share clothes, but the fit will vary from one to another. Below, Howleen wears Clawdia's dress, while Clawdia is barely able to squeeze into Draculaura's dress that Howleen had previously been wearing. Clawdia can put on Sashabella Paws' boots and stand in them, but her heels hang out in the back.
Like her sisters, Clawdia has articulation at the elbows, wrists, and knees. A comparison post with Clawdia as one of the featured dolls is coming soon.
My overall impression is that I think this doll is adorable. Some of you may remember that I never did bond with Clawdeen, and in fact had another doll's head on her body for years until Clawd and Howleen joined the family. But I bonded instantly with Clawdia. Maybe it's because I can see myself in her. I was once a bespectacled teen girl who kept a diary and dreamed of becoming a writer. Hey, maybe I should feature her diary entries on this blog.... wait, been there, done that. :)
Clawdia's hair is well-rooted, she has cool accessories, her clothing is well made, and she poses really well. The only quality issues that I can see are with some of the stitching on her jacket and the lipstick on her teeth. Clawdia is a nice addition to my Wolf family, and to my doll collection as a whole.
