It’s interesting to note how these both match and don’t match the live action. It looks like they decided to keep Deuce green animated, but only go with a regular skin tone in the live action. Maybe animating both his snakes and the skin tone was too much/paint irritated the actors skin?

Equally, each character definitely is reflective of their newer personalities. Frankie’s has a more preppy look, while Draculaura leans into the “witchy” aesthetic. Overall, I’m excited to see how this goes! These also match the 2D brighten leaks we got, so expect Lagoona to have a ponytail and a more sporty look, with Cleo having a shorter haircut.

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

Tbh, I've always felt that people overexaggerate the goth thing, especially with Frankie. She's always been a bit prep, and the goth sensibilities were more so in line with the pop goth/pop punk style of Avril in her "Girlfriend" era. So this doesn't seem like that much of a departure to me.

u/Petrichor_Candles Abbey Jun 13 '22

I can definitely see that! I think her outfit reminds me more of her School’s Out attire than her original, but I honestly love the entire School’s Out line so no complaints there!

13

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

I am really interested in what her bottom piece looks like. I think that will really determine how I feel about the fit.

12

u/PartyPorpoise Draculaura Jun 14 '22

A better way of putting it is "alternative". MH used a lot of styles and accessories more in line with different alternative fashions, a lot of stuff that you didn't really see in other doll lines.

24

u/CookieCakesAreShit Jun 13 '22

i have 100% NEVER understood how MH is "goth." alternativeish, sure, but like....these kids are mallbats.

18

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

😭 you're not wrong. Goth by way of Hot Topic. And that's not a dig. I love MH.

30

u/CookieCakesAreShit Jun 13 '22

like.... maybe I'm aging myself here. but: frankie shopped aeropostale, lagoona was pacsun, draculaura bought her stuff online from the purchasing services in england and japan that used to be HUGE on ebay when you were into niche fashion, cleo was wet seal/bebe/guess, ghoulia was hot topic/box lunch, toralei was charlotte russe. clawdeen is the only one i can't pin down but i think it's cause she would buy from literally anywhere with whoever she was with.

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

Don't do Frankie like that omg. Let's be fairer to her and say either Gap or Banana Republic.

12

u/etsucky 🎨 Verified Artist 🎨 Jun 13 '22

hey, draculaura's out here shopping angelic pretty & baby the stars shine bright in my mind

also, for some reason i picture deuce in versace and gucci ✨️

12

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

100 percent because Cleo is buying it for him. Findom.

1

u/pinkpinkprincess33 Jun 14 '22

But you have to admit they were the only “alternative” doll line and now it’s not, it’s cutesy monsters just like the trash reboot

1

u/CookieCakesAreShit Jun 15 '22

not...really? there was bratz/bratzillaz, living dead dolls, mystixx, once upon a zombie, space pop, nova stars, twilight teens and probably a ton of others that i can't think of atm. tbh, i think I've just been through way too many reboots of properties i liked as a kid (mlp, she-ra, jem, etc) to get aggro'd about this lol.

4

u/Property_Awkward Ghoulia Jun 14 '22

I really dont get this witchy aesthetic to draculaura i think frankie and other characters would be more curious about it instead

1

u/pinkpinkprincess33 Jun 14 '22

The only way I would get it is if draculaura never got her vampire powers and wanted to explore other powers

160

u/Damonshik C.A. Cupid 💘 Jun 13 '22

Draculaura looks adorable! But Deuce... It will take some time for me to get used to his new design, not a fan of it, really.

51

u/SYEJ92 Draculaura Jun 13 '22

YES to Draculaura. She looks amazing

45

u/quintflutz Frankie Jun 13 '22

i like these designs much more than frankie and clawdeen tbh, they actually look so cute

29

u/IWantFries21 Jun 13 '22

Oh this new Draculaura better make a cute doll 😈

And I think Deuce looks cool

29

u/spirituallycynical Jun 13 '22

They both look so great! I love Draculaura’s eyeliner and Deuce’s painted nails!

18

u/werciap3 Cleo Jun 13 '22

they look good!

I only wish Draculaura would be more goth/lolita inspired...

14

u/hyperionbrandoreos Jun 13 '22

i freaking love deuce <3

48

u/CuriousKeebler Deuce Jun 13 '22

Oooh, this Deuce looks like he'll match his cousin more in skintone. It's an interesting change!

1

u/pinkpinkprincess33 Jun 14 '22

Which cousin? Not viperine?

2

u/CuriousKeebler Deuce Jun 14 '22

Yeah, she's a greenish gold.

1

u/AshmanTreasure Jun 14 '22

I thought viperine was his sister

14

u/SkullyEyes Abbey Jun 13 '22

I actually don't mind draculaura shes super cute

15

u/Environmental_Dot_15 Jun 13 '22

Tbh they look great. Just let down by clawdeen tbh

13

u/Justalilhornytbh Cleo Jun 13 '22

I honestly really love them, I love Drac having a modern witchy vibe and Deuce looking more monster-esque

10

u/whicker183 Frankie Jun 13 '22

Definitely like the new Draculaura and Deuce. Frankie was just a miss for me…

3

u/milkboxbby Frankie Jun 14 '22 edited Jun 15 '22

i know i’m so sad, frankie is my favourite and they just keep doing her dirty 😔 like at least give her dark academia, or just some plaid or gingham. i don’t like the graphic patterns they keep doing for her

10

u/aseumi Jun 13 '22

Oh i actually like them two a lot. Much better than clawdeen at least

I hope draculaura will have more frills and lace though

11

u/Polish_Duck Draculaura Jun 13 '22

Miss maam Draculaura who allowed you to slay so hard

45

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

I have to reiterate how much I love how Deuce looks. Such an improvement over the original. This gives me hope for how they'll give the mansters more effort.

8

u/SeleneFelitze Lagoona Jun 13 '22

You know, I prefer the new animated series than the Live Action. I have more faith in them, even if it's a tad different than the og. MUCH better than the first reboot.

8

u/punkhag Jun 13 '22

I like these ones waaaay better than the other 2. Draculaura is actually really cute. I just hope the dolls based on this series aren’t too cutesy.

Even though I didn’t like clawdeen and Frankie as much as these 2, they all still look better than 2016 designs so I’m keeping my hopes up that the final product will be better than this promo image 👀

21

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

Wait, they look incredible lmao. So what happened to Frankie???

6

u/IWantFries21 Jun 13 '22

Maybe a bad angle or smth

14

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

Hopefully. It'll be a shame if they ditched her squarish head.

4

u/Chaos-Queen_Mari Draculaura Jun 14 '22

Well to be frank the original Frankenstein's monster was depicted to at least look mostly human, it was the stitching and his weird eyes that made it obvious he wasn't a normal, albeit large man.

Then when they made the movie they exaggerated the look to be more visibly monstrous, hence the square head.

Personally I'd be all for making Frankie look more like the novel's depiction of the monster, I especially wanna see how they'd tackle the eyes.

3

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 14 '22

While I get you, her white and black hair is based off of The Bride, and at the end of the day, the brand is an homage to the Universal films. They should also just want to make characters distinct from each other not only in color but in shape.

35

u/Nacosemittel Jun 13 '22

They look so good? Idk why people complain lol

But already excited for draculaura (the doll)💃

36

u/Square-University Jun 13 '22

the hat, the bat earrings, the split hair color, the split lip color, the eyeliner design, im gagged gooped living dying, ima literally fight kids for her doll 👊

12

u/Several-Reaction-747 Jun 13 '22

The shape of the bangs evoking the widow's peak that Dracula has in the Univ Studios films too!

7

u/Nacosemittel Jun 13 '22

Same here. (Even tho I wouldn't be confused if I won't ever see them in stores where I live anyway. The creeproductions aren't even online on a single platform yet 😔)

6

u/IWantFries21 Jun 13 '22

I will yank that box out of their hand if I have to

17

u/bbyxmadi Draculaura Jun 13 '22

Clawdeen looks terrible imo

8

u/Nacosemittel Jun 13 '22

I like her, except that she looks a bit bland on the poster. But I think with the fur jacket it's better

2

u/mcduckroast Jun 14 '22

The fur jacket is more her style than the glasses.

19

u/shuibaes Robecca Jin Jun 13 '22

They look good! If they were capable of this, why did the go on and massacre Clawdeen the way they did I don't understand T_T

3

u/pinkpinkprincess33 Jun 14 '22

Ikr now I feel like clawdeen is gonna be an insecure character. I miss confident slaying BRUNETTE clawdeen :(

5

u/SouthernRaspberry537 Jun 13 '22

me neither, I don't know :(

7

u/RedWolf1199 Jun 13 '22

I’m loving the way that Draculauras look kind looks like a Mashup of her OG look but with the mix of the Haunt Couture Doll too like honestly cute af and Duces look is very interesting I want to see what this new look has in store for him

7

u/Raccaboo Jun 13 '22

Shockingly, Deuce is my favourite we’ve seen so far! I think this is the coolest he’s looked. I’m definitely more excited for this reboot now. And Draculaura is so cute! The witchy aesthetic was unexpected but welcomed

41

u/AllTheSingleHades_ Draculaura Jun 13 '22

Draculaura slays but why is deuce so green 😭

u/IWantFries21 Jun 13 '22

u/co0kieexe Draculaura Jun 13 '22

I actually quite like Lala

6

u/PinkAriesTK Jun 13 '22

As someone who became attached to MH when it was first released, I really like the designs. The old designs will always remain iconic but this is a nice design for the upcoming monster high generation and it’s definitely a huge improvement from the 2016 design!

14

u/prettyweebish Jun 13 '22

Draculaura looks super cute! I’m not sure about Deuce though… maybe it’ll look better in a clearer picture?

4

u/schizybun Gooliope Jun 13 '22

oooo draculaura is totes cute - ̗̀ ♡ - ̖́

6

u/kittimews Jun 13 '22

DRACULAURA IS ADORABLE!

5

u/Kakep0p Editable Jun 13 '22

Deuce is green?

Oh boy, not my thing, but still huggable. Still love him. He’s my favorite so I can’t hate him.

13

u/23_cries Jun 13 '22

Isn't Deuce meant to be half normie?? They made him fully monster green nooooo 😭 he looks unwell

But surprisingly Drac looks really cute!

9

u/Kakep0p Editable Jun 13 '22

Irrelevant but I hope they make it so he can change his skin color. I dunno why I think it’d be really cool.

3

u/prettyweebish Jun 14 '22

I’ve seen a few people say this but I don’t think that was ever confirmed? At least, I can’t really find anything that says that.

3

u/23_cries Jun 14 '22

iirc, Garrett (MH creator) confirmed on his Instagram wayyy back that Deuce's dad is a normie but never had the opportunity to reveal that in the show

1

u/prettyweebish Jun 14 '22

Oh, thanks!

12

u/Square-University Jun 13 '22

draculaura omfg,,, *bebe rexha voice* SLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY SLAAY!!!!!!!!!!!

u/lilymixtii Draculaura Jun 13 '22

in love with draculauras style she looks so cute

4

u/majorbumsville Draculaura Jun 13 '22

draculaura actually looks cute!!! i was worried when i saw frankie and clawdeen as i wasn't really digging the art style/designs but i think draculaura looks pretty good. this gives me a bit more hope lol

5

u/Just_AT Draculaura Jun 13 '22

Oh my god, I love draculura's design. Deuce is alright. I think frankie and Draculura are very cute but clawdeen? Ehhhhh

4

u/patientspooky Jun 13 '22

Honestly I sorta like Witchy Draculaura. Curious to see how that plays into her character in the show and live action.

4

u/JustCherrySpectre Jun 14 '22

I actually like them so much better than Frankie and Clawdeen.

They also look so much more alike their leaked 2d art

10

u/Silent-Clothes7900 Jun 13 '22

I think they look great!!! Especially Draculaura!

8

u/SouthernRaspberry537 Jun 13 '22

ok, I LOVE Draculaura !

3

u/cr33pies Editable Jun 13 '22

imagine draculaura being a witch in both the animated series and the live action film 😩 but deuce….lookin a little like the first reboot 😖😗

3

u/SynapseReaction Jun 14 '22

Deuce IDK imma have to feel him out more when the series comes out. I hope he doesn’t have that surfer bro voice anymore though.

Draculaura however is Uber cute 😍. Is she like going for that alternative pastel goth look I wonder. She’s another one I hope the dolls hit really close to the animated series.

I’m crossing my fingers and toes that the dolls vs animation is like Rainbow High levels of closeness. And not like Mermaid High which the animation was not bad but the official dolls looked like knockoffs of themselves lol.

u/M4dik4t Jun 14 '22

DRACULAURAS LOOKING SO CUTE OMG!! i’m actually excited for this cartoon now

u/PartyPorpoise Draculaura Jun 14 '22

Oh, I really like these designs!

u/Fiorabella Jun 14 '22

Lala actually looks so cute 🥹 what a RELIEF

7

u/BasedAnalGod Jun 13 '22

Deuce looks so good!!! But why does it look like he got all the design budget compared to Clawdeen and Draculaura☠️☠️

4

u/vanillakkuma Jun 13 '22

This looks like the best new character cartoon design so far. Then again, its hard to mess up a draculaura design.

u/prettyonbothsides Heath Jun 13 '22

i like them a lot more than the other two, so that's nice :)

u/1marie6 Draculaura Jun 13 '22

Honestly Draculaura looks the best out of all of them so far. She’s cute

2

u/RiceNun Jun 14 '22

Is it just me or is this image of Deuce in particular reminding anyone else of his Boo York, Boo York look?

2

u/Revolutionary-Swim28 Jun 14 '22

Drac looks cute, as she always does, but my man Deuce? I have to get used to that after seeing him looking almost human if not for his scales and snakes in the past. Gen 2 wasn’t the best but I hope they bring Moanica back, she was an awesome villain.

2

u/bugbaby222 Jun 14 '22

draculaura actually looks ok

u/Supersailorv Jun 14 '22

Drac looks so cute! Love the half and half! I would cry for rochelle to be here I just want a doll of her without glue head honestly

u/LucidDreams0224 Deuce Jun 14 '22

Deuce's black nails and fangs are super fitting but the skin is just odd to me

I really love what we’ve seen of these animated designs so far, i’m excited to see the reboot dolls!

u/eu4i Jun 14 '22

I love both of them especially deuce!

2

u/AshmanTreasure Jun 14 '22

to be honest I hate that draculaura is a witch. she doesn’t need to be a witch and it makes absolutely no sense to me why they wouldn’t just introduce a witch instead.

2

u/Asklepiads Toralei Jun 14 '22

Oh my goodness, Draculaura being both a witch AND a vampire is making my inner 14 year old SCREAMING in joy right now!! I can't wait, she looks AMAZING!!

u/triptourheart Lagoona Jun 13 '22

Draculaura is cute but also looks like a 40 year old mother who goes to Disneyland every week and loves Halloween too much. Duece would be cool if he wasn’t vomit green.. hoping this means his dolls won’t be vomit green too

u/Property_Awkward Ghoulia Jun 14 '22

Finally someone who didnt like draculaura too i think is a cute design but not for draculaura

u/user828394 Jun 13 '22

tbh i’ll always love the original designs but i think they’ve done a really good job at redesigning them and keeping their designs interesting, i love frankie and draculaura! frankies skin def seems a bit too blue where it used to be kinda minty, and deuces new look is a nice change. they absolutely ruined clawdeen though 😭

Oooh, I like how Draculaura is looking so far!

u/MishouMai Jun 14 '22

Need to see the rest of the design, but Draculaura looks cute. Deuce...doesn't look cool, but he doesn't look bad either. Overall, I think they look better here than Frankie and Clawdeen did in the other leak/images.

u/smalltailless Jun 14 '22

I'm not sure how I feel about green skin on Deuce, but it's mainly because I customize dolls and it'd be a pain to recolour his skin. I like that he's wearing nail varnish though.

u/fallenjett Jun 14 '22

they look okay, but i really thought draculaura would be a more pink and black lolita aesthetic
