Monster high twitter account lately been posting pics of people dressed up as Heath, Frankie, Cleo and Clawdeen (not cosplays)
But the biggest problem was Clawdeen Wolf. Why do i say it? well you should check the image:
They had a yellow dude but not a natural skinned black girl? That's lame.
They tried to emulate her curly hair but it looks like she didn't brushed in months. (however i don't think they are trying it at all)
All of the live action characters are accurate to the dolls:
What do you guys think?
I dunno...I don't think Mattel is this stupid (then again...) but I wonder if maybe this is something else? I mean, any SMART company making a LA movie on a doll line would be smart enough to do them proper.
I didn't say it was a movie, but remember that in 2016 there will be a live action movie.
HA! Oh these are so bad. There's no way these are for a movie. "Frankie's" wig is just horrible as is "Cleo's." "Heath" looks 30 and the less said about "Clawdeen" the better. They just look like a few awful cosplayers to me......
And to QueenHeny, Did you see the horror that is the Jem live action movie cast? Shana's some little white chick now. I hope the movie never sees the light of day.
I don't do jem so no haha. Way to old for me ;)
Well if it a music video...Gotta be something a bunch of workers decided to do in the spur of a moment on a cheepo budget... heh
I think that in that pic except for Cleo, Frankie and Heath the others are just backgrounders.
Why paint a guy yellow but leave frankie regular? It makes no sense.
And yeah, Clawdeen's whiteness and Cleo's whiteness is pretty offensive for official material. That's why i'm hoping it's in no way official or licensed. If they're just random people doing some rubbish then it comes down to "who they had available" (I mean, I remember as a kid doing a spice girls thing where we had a white scary spice because we had no black friend lol.) but if it's official it's unacceptable.
Problem is, it IS the sort of thing that keeps happening. (Like the Jem thing eugh). Official media, hollywood etc are big on the whole making everyone whitey white or ambiguous, and when there's outrage it's people being "unreasonable" and yet "OMG we can't have a black bond/doctor who/superman etc" is a very common sentiment by these very same people.
"this character is WHITE, he HAS to be played by a WHITE guy". So um.. why do the black characters so seldom get played by black people?
The double standard is frustrating and disgusting.
But hopefully this isn't an official thing. An official thing should know better. random people doing some random thing is quite different to a big company recruiting and directing.
The final linked image kinda confirms it for me. We have black Deuce, black... maybe lagoona but who the hell knows. Only one person has body paint for.... reasons. A few people who's character is completely ambiguous (who the heck are half those people meant to be?). Reminds me of the first MH music video where nobody was actually dressed as any character as such, just "generic monsters".
Official or not, it looks really really crap. Sorry, but... those costumes are terrible.
The girl playing Frankie painted her face green but very light
well ricky dillen aka the heath was asked by monster high. they even said "teaming with #monsterhigh" but maybe they were asked to crossplay So all of thair fans will get into monster high. ( incase you don't know youtubers (people who are popular on youtube ) are treated like celebrities )
