Custom Repaint: Stella, the Monster High CAM Ice Girl
The Ice and Blob Girl has been my favorite release in the Create a Monster series to date. I really loved their translucent bodies and vinyl. They are both among my favorite Monster High girls to repaint.
The wigs were even better, imo, with these girls than the previous releases. I was a huge fan of the vinyl wigs, too, and I loved the fiber for this one in particular. When boil straightened, they become so soft and feathery, perfect for texturing the look with a razor cut.
This girl arrived without her default hands, however. She was part of one of the multipacks from Costco, so it's just a packaging fluke. Luckily, I keep a stash of all kinds of different parts and gave her these awesome purple gloved hands as a replacement, since they match the outfit I wanted to use :). The pegs for these hands are smaller than the wrist of the CAM girls, since they were intended for a regular release Clawdeen. I don't know why Mattel wouldn't just make them all the same, but who knows? I adhered them with a bit of flexible E6000 and they still have their up and down motion as well as a bit of rotation when twisted gently.
Stella is available over in my Etsy shop. Thanks for reading!
