Isn't she amazing? Her hair! Her lips! Her clothes! Her hands! Her shoes! Ahhh I love her!
Her pet, Chewlian, is a rather sinister looking venus flytrap. He's one of my favourite Monster High pets, as well - although I think Operatta's Memphis "Daddy-O" Longlegs is my favourite. (If only all spiders were so suave, maybe I'd be charmed by their smooth ways and less likely to run away shrieking.)
The best bit is I managed to snag her reduced in Argos. They also had Rochelle and Robecca, but they don't call to me the same way Venus does. (Also, tight budget. Wargh!) Looking to perhaps acquire Robecca in the future, having seen the awesome job Heather did on her plating, which you can see here. I'd be intrigued to try a wash (like I'd use for Warhammer and other miniatures) and then seal it, and see how that looked. I think the panelling is awesome, but not quite super awesome, and it could be a future project!
*At least, I hope it is. Gavin thinks it might be just a reference to the band. But they're a reference to BttF apparently, so, either way...? I can has Marty?
