I bought Sea Monster and her boxmate, Vampire Girl, back when CAM sets were released with just one body and God, did it annoy me. Out of the two I preferred Sea Monster. Unfortunately the one torso released with the first-wave packs was pale pink to suit Vampire girl and also, no core character matched Sea Monster’s unique colouring, so I couldn’t steal parts from another doll … Nice going Mattel. I shouldn’t moan, they did release the CAM set with this body colour eventually, but by then I really didn’t feel like spending another £20. Luckily, I managed to buy a job lot of MH parts on eBay, which included Sea Monster’s torso and upper limbs. At last!
I really love Sea Monster’s face, which is like Lagoona’s but more snoutlike around the nose. Several MH dolls look like they are modelled on celebrities to me, and Sea Monster kind of reminds me of Priscilla Presley (in her younger days of course). I even like the black and purple wig that came with this doll but I must admit that it’s rather flyaway. By the way, do you like the bath props? The bath is a soap dish, believe it or not, and the little bottles are erasers – this line sells loads of great sixth-scale objects, here’s a picture of the packaging in case you are interested in looking them up:
