Clawdia Wolf

Well, the Werewolf was very prolific.  Another Wolf sibling has joined the pack.  Frights Camera Action Clawdia Wolf joins her siblings Clawdeen, Clawd, and Howleen.


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.

Check out my video review of Clawdia and her siblings.

  1. How dare Mattel name a doll Clawdia when I named my monster hybrid Claudia two years ago. The nerve, lol! I had seen photos of her on Flickr and saw her in person at Target but I had no idea she was taller than the other girls. I guess since she is older I should have know she would be since Cleo's sister is taller than her. I actually wasn't interested in getting her, but now that I know about the height difference I might keep a clearance eye out for getting her body.

    Thanks for so many photos!

    1. Hi Muff! I do like her name. :) I was compelled to get her because I didn't like the thought of her siblings being here without her. I feel like I need to keep the family together. When I first learned of this doll, I wished that Mattel would quit making Wolf siblings so that I could quit buying Monster High dolls. But I like Clawdia so much that I wouldn't mind having other Wolf siblings after her. I am at the mercy of Mattel. I've read that there are quite a lot of children in the Wolf family in the books.

  2. She must be on the same body as Nefera and Headmistress Bloodgood, I assume? I love her molded fangs, although I wish she had a more wolf-like expression, like the box art.

    1. Hi Anderson's All-Purpose! I don't know about the other Monster High dolls, so I can't say for certain if she's on the same body as the others that you mentioned. I didn't think that I would like her fangs, but I like her smile.

  3. Congratulations! She is cute. Like how her golden blond hair looks against her brown complexion. Golden eyes, too. Interesting. Of her accessories, I like that gold dress best. That's an all-eyes-on-me dress if ever I saw one ;-)

    Thanks for the family shots, too. Nice to see these actors with their family.

  4. I think that there is room for a tab for Clawdia, should you decide to share some of her diary entries ;-) She would tell a different story, have a different perspective.

    1. Thank you, D7ana! I like her gold dress a lot. There may be room for a Clawdia tab, but there's not enough time to fill it with stories. Calista is already tapping her foot impatiently because I'm way behind on her story.

    2. LOL, well, I would not want to annoy Calista. And I enjoy reading/viewing Calista's stories. Besides, Clawdia might be shyer about presenting her story in front of others.

    1. You're welcome Male Doll World! Did you buy her?

  6. I wondered when Mattel released Nefera whether they would release a series of older sisters/brothers with the taller bodies. It seemed a good way to extend the line without always trying to create new characters. Clawdia looks really cute and I, too, like the idea of a doll with glasses.

    1. Hi Carrickters, I do like the idea of Mattel producing siblings for the existing characters. When I first found out about Clawdia, I wished that Mattel would give the other characters more siblings so that I could quit buying these dolls. :) I really like Clawdia though, so I'm actually really open to the idea of buying more of these dolls. I've learned that there are a lot of children in the Wolf family, including younger male triplets, so this could be interesting.

  7. Was a comment about Clawdia being 19 at Monster High, she is actually a college student in London, hence you see the Brit flag design in her dress, hint hint.Her body is the same as Nefera de Nile and Headmistress Bloodgood, only 3 of them that large, can fit Bratz clothing, just those 3. Like that all 4 siblings have different skin tone, Clawd is hard to find and expensive, I also like that mattel is doing darker toned dolls, Catty Noir is the darkest being a Black Cat, it fits. Robecca is a copper color, guess she's copper.

    1. Hi Anonymous, I caught on that Clawdia is in college in Londoom after I read her journal, and I mentioned it in this blog post. I totally missed the flag design in her dress, though, so thanks for pointing that out. Thanks for the information on the other Monster High dolls, as well! The only ones that I have are the Wolf siblings, and I'll probably limit myself to these. But if other Wolf siblings are released later, well that's a different story. :)
