Monster High Freak du Chic Twyla review

Step right up, step right up!
It's time to gaze upon the freakishly tall ghoul Twyla Boogeyman!

Today we be looking at Monster High's Freak du Chic Twyla. This girl may look tall, but don't let her fool you!
This stunning ghoul is wearing a pair of rather ornate stilts which connect to her shoes and legs.
Her shoes are styled in the same manner as the stilts, so they blend together well. The soles of her shoes are platforms, which act like pegs that connect to the stilts, creating a firm grip between the two.
The stilts also wrap around her legs like braces just below her knees, and are very stable.
However, with the braces connected she is so tall you need to bend her knees to fit her onto the stand properly.
She has the nicest fluffy curled hair which is tied into a pony tail to create a big poof of hair.
Her fringe/bangs are styled in a classic pin curl,
Twyla's clown suit is a one piece body suit featuring black and white checkering on the bodice and spooky cute bloomers with green cob web and little black spiders.
The bodice and bloomers are separated by a classic white clown frill around the waist.
The bodice of her clown suit also features black fish netting sleeves on both of the arms.
Also connected to the one piece is the green neck frill.
And did I mention the matching green pom poms?  
Twyla's knee high stockings have material which matches with the sleeves of her bodice. Connected to the back of the stockings are her black and white tiger stripe bell bottoms.
The material and pattern on Twyla's bell bottoms match Freak du Chick Clawdeen Wolf's outfit.
Twyla comes wearing a stylish green bauble bangle on her dainty wrist.
Twyla also came packed with a matching pet rabbit playing the cymbals (The poor thing is missing an eye too!) and a mini poster of Twyla herself.
As you can see, Twla's colour scheme is pretty simple. Featuring only grey, black, green and with a splash of purple in her makeup.
Even though her colour scheme may be simple, this girl packs quite the punch visually. She really stands out on the shelf!
She is priced slightly more than the first wave of Freak du Chic dolls, as I believe she is intended for collectors.
Please be sure to check out our video review of Twyla below:
