So I knew that Vandala’s prosthetic leg was based on something, or at least familiar, and I finally placed it! These wooden legs were designed by Alexander McQueen for world-class athlete Aimee Mullins, who walked the runway in them in his Spring/Summer 1999 show. 
If this is, in fact, intentional, somebody at Mattel is fucking brilliant.

I get asked a lot “you have to buy the monster high dolls??” The answer is, no, I don’t have to buy them, but I’ll tell you why I do. I am proud of Monster High. The team is so passionate and cares and works harder than anyone knows. I am proud of all the work that goes into each doll - it’s a much more difficult process than anyone realizes. I know they painstakingly work to capture all the details they possibly can. I know they found new ways to achieve what they wanted when told no. I know they love what they do. I know that I am willing to pay for a line that stands for so much. Because I know that being different is a good thing. Because I believe what we do is worth buying. Because I believe in Monster High.
That is why I buy the Monster High dolls.
