one of the cutest Draculaura's made so far is Dead Tired Draculaura. besides the basics, the Dead Tired dolls are definitely my favorite line. they are a little cheaper than some of the other lines, and come in slimmer boxes.
the back of the box shows all our favorite ghouls watching a movie (presumably the scary human movies Draculaura brought) at a sleepover party. there is an inset closeup of Draculaura's face, along with a quote from her saying that the party "doesn't bite." personally I try to avoid going to parties that I don't think will be fun, but it sounds like she and I do not have that in common.
Inside the box we have Draculaura in her “Game of DeNile” jammies, her matching monster slippers, Scary Human movies DVD set, and a brush and stand. She also comes with a collector's card that you can see poking out from behind her legs.
Draculaura's jammies consist of a top and capri length pants. Her top is pink with fluffy pink sleeves with white dots. The bottom of the sleeves and the neckline have white lace. at the neck there is a cute black bow. The capri's are made of the same pink and white material as her sleeves and also have lace trimming the legs.
Her slippers are bright pink and have little black bat wings on the sides. I think it's interesting to note that while Cleo's shoes and stand match, Draculaura's do not. her stand is a much lighter pink than her slippers.
Also of note is Draculaura's hair. She has her signature pigtails, but it looks like she stuck her finger in an electrical socket and then someone chopped them off real short. I love the softer makeup she has on though- it's so soft and natural compared to her usual vampy (ha!) style. I'm going to try to figure out something that will make her hair a little less outrageous. also this is a decent shot of her eyemask. it is the same pink with white dot material as her pants with a white ribbon trim.
Draculaura's best accessory is her Scary Human movies DVD set. I have to give Mattel huge props on this one. the little box is bright pink and shaped like a casket. it opens! and inside are two tiny DVDs!! and they come out!!! (Parental warning: tiny but awesome parts) I love it!!!!
finally, we have Draculaura's collectors card. it features a cartoon of her on the obverse, and her sleepover packing list on the reverse. I don't know why she put "I adore makeovers" in quotes on her own list. maybe she attended one too many bad marketing classes where she mistakenly learned that quotation marks should be used for emphasis.
The Bottom Line:
The Good: cute, and affordable, Draculaura doll. awesome accessories
The Bad: small parts
The Verdict: if you are looking for a pretty Draculaura doll on a budget I think that Dead Tired Draculaura is the best option currently available. plus you get the cutest little DVD set (with removable DVDs!) ever!
