Images of upcoming Monster High fashion packs have been circulating around and I finally found some good pictures! Below there’s a little more info and my thoughts on these “new” offerings.
You might be wondering why I put “new” in quotation marks up there and it’s because a lot (all?) of the fabric in these fashion packs is recycled from previous outfits. I need help placing the fabric that for the blue dress, but the pink dress is made using the Inner Monster Scared Silly add-on pack fabric (and that dress was cuter). I am currently feeling zero percent excited about fashion packs that are just recycled fabrics, but I still wanted to put these out there for you all to see and comment upon.
Draculaura’s set comes with: pink bow headband, sky blue shoes, pink heart purse, black pants, and
scared silly pink logo dress.
Lagoona’s set comes with: blue and orange dress, blue pants, clamshell purse (her Monster Exchange purse but in a different color), and sea green shoes.
Next up is a Cleo and Spectra 2-pack.
Cleo’s set comes with: teal shoes, scarab purse, gold necklace, and striped dress whose fabric looks a lot like her I Heart Fashion dress.
Spectra set comes with: purple necklace, pastel tank (Twyla’s Haunted doll fabric), metallic pink skirt, magenta shoes, and inexplicable blue and silver purse.
Update! This new Clawdeen Wolf and Frankie Stein Fashion 2-Pack promo photo just surfaced so I’m adding it here rather than making a new post for it.
Clawdeen’s set come with a lime green graffiti-esque dress, lime green shoes, and a purple purse.
Frankie’s set comes with a blue and white patterned dress, blue shoes, blue sunglasses, and a yellow and silver safety pin purse that I am in love with. The gold cuff and belt don’t seem to go particularly well with either outfit, and they seem more like Cleo’s vibe anyway. Speaking of, if you click on the image and view Frankie’s dress larger, the skirt pattern seems to be vaguely Egyptian. Frankie de Nile, perhaps?
At first I was excited at the prospect of getting some new Monster High fashion packs but, I believe, everything here is just recycled. It’s hard to get excited when you know what you’re going to get is what you already have but cut into a slightly different shape or molded out of a different color of plastic. I’m not sure what Mattel is thinking on this one, but it’s not something I’m going to open my wallet for.
What are your thoughts on these fashion packs? Will you be getting any of them? Do you think they’re too derivative? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
Update 6/7/16: Added information about the Clawdeen/Frankie 2-pack.
