News and Reviews of Monster High Dolls, Plush Toys, and More!

So, I'm bored and I decided to write my opinion and I also want to hear what's your opinion on C.A. Cupid. 

Cupid has been very interesting to me. From the start, I did not like the doll when I saw the promo pics. I thought I would never buy the doll. But by the time she came out I decided what the heck she has that different appeal maybe I will like her. And after purchasing the doll I have grown to really like her especially after my little mods I did to her. 

What I think is awesome about her:

~PINK HAIR! (I wasn't too happy at first that it was short and full of gel but after brushing it out, I really enjoy her having short hair) 

~accessories! (Her purse is by far my favorite purse! It reminds me so much of Juicy Couture. Shoes are just stunning and the bow and arrow ring was genius! And of course the skeleton wings is beautiful touch.)

~the black fade. (Now, I don't know why she has it but I do admit I love that she does!)

The downside to me:

~the dress (looks cute on the drawings but on the doll, I just don't care for it)

~How the hair was styled (I don't care for how it was but once I brushed it out and moved the curls around. I liked it alot more. To me it looks more like her drawings now)

Now the lace on her hands and legs is 50/50 matter to me. I kind of like it but I kind of don't like it at the same time mhm I dunno. 

Also, about her bow lips. I hated that factor on her when I saw her pics. Now, I'm again on the 50/50 matter. It suits her but I just like full lips. I was so close to repainting her lips but again I'm just so 50/50 about it that I can't. 

Left: is mine 

Do you like what I did to mine?

or do you like her originally how she comes?

Great review! I still haven't found a Cupid doll unfortunately, but I like the original dress better. As for the hair, I love what you did. It looks more realistic and the curls are to cute, way to go!

The only thin I'm not a fan of on cupid is her lips.  I saw a great Cupid on Flickr though where the owner added more blushing to the cheeks and some blushing on the lips so they wouldn't just be stark white around the cupid bow shape and she looked amazing.  Here's the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/deadfast/6600985297/  it might be something you want to consider doing since you are 50/50 on how you like her lips and this preserves the cupid bow shape while still adding a bit more color and definition to them.

Wow! I love it! Thanks! I might just do that.

I guess C.A.Cupid just grows on you... I wasn't a fan at all but then I saw pictures and I kinda like her now... http://www.flickr.com/photos/deadfast/6600985091/in/photostream/ I saw this photo and I fell in love. The skull wings are terrible but are removable so... 

I was reading the bio's on the other day and C.A.Cupid wasn't there so... Maybe it's a new "type" of character: it's not in the main plot and it's just specific to a certain line. What do you think? 

I wasn't crazy about the cupie lips either when they fist revealed her but the more I see her the more they grow on me.  The one thing I still don't like is the top part of her dress.  I don't have one yet but when I get her those black straps across her chest are somehow gonna have to go.  I'll prolly have to brush her hair out as well, I don't like that gelled look.

I thought she was kind of ugly when I first got her - I almost regretted buying it... but nothing I could do about it, I can't return her - she was brought up to Canada for me from the US by a friend of a friend.  But the more I look at her, the more she grows on me - it actually only took me about an hour to become fond of her.

All the brilliant little details that Mattel has put into her - the hearts in the eyes, the "cupid's bow" lips, the rib cage wings (so monster like, AND the rib cage protects the heart...)  The thing that I love most of all about mine is the way her bangs are styled... I haven't seen it on any other Cupid picture that's been posted, but I noticed that the bangs on my cupid are shaped like an upside-down heart!
I think she's going to stay in the box for a little while. 

I so have to get her some Draculaura clothes. Im in the midst of setting up new displays and I think Cupid has to be near this One Piece figure I got called Ghost Princess Perhona

I'm not sure at all. She does seem created just for the 1600 line it seems. But when you buy the doll she does come with a bio just not a journal. My opinion is that we might see her again outside of the tv special but not often and think Mattel will add her to the website soon.

Yeah, I thought about that as well but for now I just stored her dress.

She does have amazing detailing. I wasn't completely excited for her as well but with all that detailing you just grow to love her. That's really cute yours has that. If you have time one day, can you take a pic? I would love to see that because it sounds really cute on her.

It's nice that Draculaura wears  a lot of hearts and pink because she looks good in a lot of her stuff :)

Yeah, cupid looks amazing in Draculaura's sweet 1600 dress and in her cute little photography club outfit!  She and Draculaura compliment each other's looks very well.
