BLOODGOOD - Murders, Lies & Revenge
The tell-all book from the faculty and students of Monster High.
Ex-Headless Headmistress Bloodgood has a bad report card… and now that she’s gone, those who knew her best are spilling all of her horror-ible secrets.
Animal abuse, child endangerment, worker neglect, and sexual escapades on campus are just a few of the disgusting dirty laundry exposed in this book… as well of what really happened to a ‘loving’ monster…

Welcome to Monster
Maybe I should actually write this book.
I really wish I knew where you got your resources:)
The moment on True Hearts Day when Sparrow says that he’s done with Duchess. Idk, I was feeling like it, so I tried my best
Another edit, this one took alot less time then the other one. When I first saw Duchess’s “New Look” the first thing I thought besides how much of a bitchslap whitewashing her was, was that “That doesn’t look like Duchess at all, infact it look more like someone else.” And then it hit me! You know who knew Duchess looks like? That’s right, Raven. So to be sure I did an edit, and nonetheless my assumptions were proven correct. All you have to do is change the eye, hair, lip color and make the eyebrows slightly thinner then BAM! You got ballerina Raven, and if you change the top part of her dress to black then you have a more mature looking raven. This just makes me hate what they have done even more.
girls don’t like boys, girls like representation of people of colour in Mattel doll lines
Girls don’t like when you speak over the entirety of their gender, girls like equal representation of everyone (that includes boys)
How white are you?
And like, you follow up “Girls don’t like when you speak over the entirety of their gender” with “girls like equal representation of everyone (that includes boys)”?!
girls don’t like [thing], they like “egalitarianism”! it is very insulting to imply that a girl might not like boys!!! that is very insulting to boys, who are important!!!!!!! we should listen to boys all the time!!!!!! representation is nothing next to the possibility of someone not liking boys
Look man, idk whether making Duchess’s skin tone lighter was intended to be racist or not but either way Mattel’s erasing something very important.
Because out there, there are little girls who buy dolls who have the small colour skin tone as Duchess, and if you whiten Duchess’ skin tone, you’re riddling those little girls of representation.
We already have a ton of female characters in this series with snow-white-skin, and not enough girls with darker skin tones. Olive-skinned girls need to be represented as much as lighter-skinned girls. Mattel lightening Duchess is taking that representation away.
Even though I can’t really imagine what his motive would have been I really think Grimm was the one who told Duchess she could steal other peoples Happily Ever Afters.
Perhaps Milton is, at the very least, letting her do so as a motivation for others to keep their destiny? After all, her snooping around Ashlynn’s business is part of what lead her and Hunter to spill the beans about their relationship. Who knows what other rebellious students she could spy on for him? :p
This took waaaaay longer then I thought it would, especially seeing how it’s riddled with mistakes. As you know I hate what they did to Duchess, and I really wanted to fix Duchess’s card. I don’t have photoshop or anything like that so I just used what I normally draw with, and just kind of overlapped layers of color and line work. I pretty much edited almost everything. Click for full view.
Hmmm, might be bias since it a headcanon of mine but I’d personally say yes? There’s quite a few changes to her appearance between her webisode look and card, though I actually really like her new accessories sans the headpiece (I actually like her lack of bangs tbh, they’ve always bothered me) Kinda disappointed in card-Duchess’s makeup and lack of olive-ish skin tone though.
SO here is my big secret!
I’ve been working as an illustrator for Mattel, specifically doing illustration work for Ever After High! I can’t announce which projects I worked on at this time, but I wanted to tell you all what my big secret work has been! I’m having a great time, I love drawing Ever After High!
And here is a Raven drawing for fun! :D
I think it’s a great idea, actually! And honestly, anything that subverts the whole literal-white-naming-therefore-they’re-white mindset is a good thing. While I do recall there being at least one appearance of The White Queen in the episodes (and she happens to have pale skin in this case, alas), there’s absolutely no reason why your new OC couldn’t have a black father. So tbh I’d ay go ahead. :>
That’s awesome! Will admit, I’ve been seeing s’more OCs of color as of late and
I think I know why but shh, and some of the more proactive reactions to certain happenings have made me feel a more into the franchise than I’ve been in a while.
As for who first, hmmm. I’m leaning towards either Avian or Pythia. Your doodle of the latter is really cute though and I’d love to see something complete and colored in of her. ^^
