Getting Dolled Up: Draculaura

My childhood penchant for dolls was reignited by Monster High in December. I'd been a fan of Monster High designs for a very long time, but it wasn't until December when I bought my first dolls that I really became hooked. There is a lot to love about these dolls and the associated storylines, but in the top ten is definitely my love for their outfits. Each doll has their own sense of style which I think is totally cool. Since I'm a dork for both these dolls and everyday/closet cosplays, I thought I'd start a series on how to dress like these clawsome dolls. (Another thing in my top ten faves about Monster High is the absurd number of monster puns.)

The first ghoul I wanted to do is the super sweet, tiny vampire, Draculaura.

Draculaura's the Daughter of Dracula. She's 1600 years old and terrible at keeping secrets. She's super sweet and friendly. Her style's very feminine and full of pink, bats, and hints of Victoriana. She's a well-known shopper, made possible by centuries of belonging to the Vampire Aristocracy, even though she's looked down on by other vampires for being a late-bloomer in terms of her vampire powers still not coming in and because she's dating a werewolf. A hopeless romantic, a bit of a space-cadet, and constantly struggling to get her eyeliner even, I can totally relate to Draculaura sometimes (even if her makeup woes are due to her lack of a reflection).
