We first met Elissabat and Viperine Gorgon in Frights, Camera, Action, while we were introduced to Catty Noir in 13 Wishes. Each animated film had a line of dolls to accompany it. With the Ghoulebrities in Londoom 3-pak, we see new dolls of Elissabat, Viperine, and Catty.
Elissabat is an actress. She also happens to be Queen of the Vampires. Catty Noir is a popular singer. So it’s no surprise that these two are ghouls on the go, jetting to far-away places. And they don’t go anywhere without their favorite makeup artist, Viperine.
The girls are adorable in their Londoom-themed outfits.
Elissabat wears a tweed dress – a popular fabric associated with Londoom – with an asymmetrical hemline and red ruffles around the neckline and a bow around her waist. Her makeup is more understated than her first edition, from Frights, Camera, Action. The colors are softer, with red rather than deep purple lips. She’s not as goth as her first doll. Her hair is pulled back into a demure ponytail. I really like this understated Elissabat.
Viperine wears a Union Jack skirt and a sleeveless top in muted shades of purple, white, and pink. In keeping with her boho-chich aesthetic, she wears peace-sign earrings.
Viperine’s hair in Frights, Camera, Action was wavy. I’m really digging her Londoom straight, center-parted hair. It looks so great on her. Viperine came with a clear plastic guide to keep her sunglasses in place.
I found the plastic annoying so I removed it, as well as the plastic tabs that were holding her sunglasses in place. The sunglasses still stay on her head even when they’re not attached with tabs, but I think Viperine looks better without them because she’s so pretty.
Her hair is long and wavy, with a large curl in front. I was the most disappointed in Catty’s hair, out of all three Londoom dolls. Her hair was messy, and the curl lost its shape as soon as I took the doll out of the box.
The ghouls all sport cool shoes, in true Monster High fashion. In this case, the shoes aren’t quite so literal, like Ghoulia’s shoes being made of brains, for example. Elissabat’s boots are a nod to the ubiquitous Wellington “Wellies” boots. Viperine wears boho ankle boots with fringe made of snakes. Catty wears tall white boots with silver platform heels.
Catty’s boots have a surprise on the bottom: the Monster High skullette.
Each ghoul comes with a bag. Elissabat has a round purse with a “runny” Union Jack on it. Viperine has a large snake-fringed bag to match her boots. Catty has a pink suitcase. Elissabat’s bag and Catty’s suitcase open and close.
But they didn’t realize the paparazzi was waiting for them.
Viperine tried the “hiding behind large sunglasses and an extremely large bag” trick that’s popular with many celebrities trying to avoid the paparazzi.
And Catty? I guess Catty doesn’t mind the attention. She politely but briefly posed for photos. For some reason Elissabat, Viperine, and Catty in The Ghoulebrities in Londoom set remind me of the Spice Girls, or should I say Spice Ghouls? Maybe it’s the platform shoes and excessive use of the Union Jack. I can just imagine them being driven around Londoom by Meat Loaf. But the girls had their own ideas of where they wanted to go once they landed in Londoom.
Makeup artist Viperine headed right to Londoom’s MAC Cosmetics store.
And Catty wanted to see the grandeur of Westminister Abbey.
I like the Ghoulebrity versions of Elissabat, Viperine, and Catty. Their outfits and hair are simpler than their first wave dolls, and I love the nod to Great Britain in their clothes and accessories.
What do you think of the Ghoulebrities in Londoom set?
