Monster High Freak du Chic doll line was released in 2015 and it consists of eight dolls dressed in circus style (Frankie Stein, Jinafire Long, Toralei Stripe, Honey Swamp, Golioope Jellington, Clawdeen Wolf, Twyla, Rochelle Goyle). I got Toralei Stripe from this line over a year ago and since that time I was also thinking about getting Honey Swamp. From the moment I saw Honey in person in a store I was in love with her unique look but I was unsure about her new marionette-like body construction. Recently I found her on sale and I decided to add her to my collection.
Honey Swamp is a swamp monster who aspires to be a cinematographer. So far there were only three dolls of this character released: her signature doll, Freak du Chic doll and Gore-geous Accessories doll. All of the Honey’s dolls have an amazing body mold with molded on vines that swirl up and down all over her body. Even though I already have her signature and Freak du Chic dolls, I would love to get another Honey doll just to make a custom OOAK doll of her.
Freak du Chic Honey Swamp has a beautiful face with a fantastic circus-themed makeup. She has awesome hair that is curled and put into two pigtails. This Honey doll is inspired on a living marionette and she comes with a marionette handle and strings that are attached to her arms like bracelets. Honey’s her legs are more loose to give a real puppet effect (you can see how they move in my YouTube review of her). The wrists are also different and instead of the regular joints, this Honey comes with a hook in her lower arms and the hands go in the hook. This doll comes with a black stand and a cardboard poster with her artwork.
I think that Honey Swamp dolls are some of the most exceptional Monster High dolls and I am glad that I have two of them in my collection. As Monster High doll line was recently rebooted, so far no pictures of the new Honey Swamp dolls were shown yet. I hope that there will be more of her dolls released in the future.
