Dolly Review: Monster High Freaky Fusion Sirena Von Boo

Part mermaid, part ghost, Sirena Von Boo is one of the three new female’s who made their debut in the Freaky Fusion line.  While not my favorite, Sirena is a nice addition to the Monster High line.  Sirena has a head of rooted dark blue and light purple hair.  Styled in two pony tails with two braids hanging down one side. Her look is what I would expect from a mermaid themed doll.

This hair seems to be closer to the texture of Twyla‘s, thicker and frizzier than other Monster High dolls.

My favorite thing about Sirena is her coloring.  Her skin has an iridescent white tone to it which I love!  It is both fish like and ghostly. She has fin shaped ears. Her earrings are different on each side, one being a simple ball, the other being a cool loopy chain.

Sirena’s face is much cuter than expected.  Her sea blue eyebrows are, again, done in the shape of a fin.  Her bubbly eyes are very colorful, with yellow, green and pink highlights.  She doesn’t have cheek color.  Sirena doesn’t really need any, though, because of the cool reflective look of her sparkly white skin.  Sirena’s lips are a nice light purple/pink tone, that works really well with her color palette.

Her arms are mermaid like in look, but ghost like in coloring. She has fins on her forearm that have a nicely done gradient, that moves gently from white to dark blue, and black webbed hands.  Her arms have the traditional jointing we’ve seen on past dolls.  She, also, has a fin that runs down her back.

There isn’t much to talk about when it comes to Sirena’s outfit.  Because she’s part mermaid, she only wears a top.  In this case, her top is nice.  It’s nothing to write home about, but I do think it looks good on her.

It’s a one shoulder shirt with black fringe, reminiscent of fish net, that covers a green, octopus like design.  Sirena wears a wrist band on each hand that has looped black thread, which emulates chains.  She also wears a chain necklace.

Now, the big thing– her tail.  I love her tail for a few reason.  First, I love the texture of her tail and the added chain details around it.  Second, the gradient that goes from white to grey to dark blue to black is done so well.  It’s a nice, gradual change, which makes her tail rather life like!  And the third thing I love about her tail?  Her tail is what allows her to stand, making the less than stellar stands Monster High dolls tend to come with not necessary!  That will always be a plus in my book!

One let down in regard to the tail is that it doesn’t tilt left or right, it just moves forward and backward.  The same goes for her dark grey fins at the base of her tail.  I wish Mattel had jointed her waist in a way that she could tilt in other directions, for photography’s sake.

Overall, I like Sirena more than I thought I would.  Her coloring, especially on her tail, totally won me over.  What do you think of Sirena?  Share your thoughts below!
