Cupid was a Monster High Character I wanted to like design-wise, but just couldn’t seem to. I fell inlove with the bone wings on her doll version and I do like the gradient effect on her limbs. I never got the chance to get the Walmart exclusive so the 2nd release version was the only Cupid I’d probably ever get my hands on.
Unfortunately, Cupid’s second release was a disappointment. The limbs were messily gradiated (flecks of unpainted areas galore!). She had white joints which contrasted too much with her black limbs and she had smudges all over which I couldn’t quite tell if it was paint that failed to dry or some kind of residue. I was so unhappy with her faults that I decided to convert her into a Phoenix themed character which is what you now see.
