Cleo de Nile from School’s Out line was one of my first Monster High dolls and the second used one I bought at an online auction. Even though she was used, she was in a very good condition and came to me with all the clothes and accessories. Of course I just had to customize her look to make her perfect for me 😉
The very first thing I did with her was removing golden stripes from her hair, because they were so messy that I wasn’t able to straighten them. I cut out almost all of them – I left only a few in her bangs – and now her hair is flawless. I also changed her clothes. Now she’s wearing her original earrings (they are just perfect for Cleo!), dress from Scaris and shoes from Student Disembody Council. What do you think of her outfit?
I really love this Cleo but I am not sure if like her more than the new Cleo from Gloom & Bloom line. I’ve set a rule for myself that I can only have one doll of each character, so if I decide to buy the new one, I will have to sell this Cleo. It’s so hard because I would really love to have both of them. Currently I’m waiting for Gloom & Bloom Cleo to get into stores in Switzerland so I could have a look at her.
What do you think? Should I keep this one or buy Gloom & Bloom Cleo?

She is beautiful! I totally hear you about only trying to have one character each and agree that it is really hard to keep that rule. Good luck deciding! The new G and B Cleo is stunning too, but I think I like your better. The new Boo York one looks gorgeous too!

Thank you very much for the advice! I was trying to find G&B Cleo in London, UK, but she was nowhere to be found 🙁 I hope I'll be able to see her in person soon! I agree with you – BY BY Cleo is also really beautiful and she comes in a 2-pack with Deuce which is awesome!
