For those of you who don't know, The Draculaura Adult Collector is available for purchase on Amazon only for the time being at 49.99 and is available for free prime shipping for members. And I promise you that she's worth it. I'm sure she'll be available for quite a while, but if you really want her I'd order her sometime soon unless you're waiting for a sale on her of some sort.

She will arrive in a box as shown to left, and when you open that box she will be wrapped neatly and professionally in tissue paper, you will notice her box is shaped like a coffin, super cool. The second thing I noticed is that her box is literally a box.. as in you take the lid off and then put it back on! The lid is sealed by only 2 pieces of tape on the top and bottom. I highly recommend that you DO NOT rip the tape off.
And of course best for last, her box art. It's on the back of the box and it's designed sort of like a pendant with her portrait. The artist of this piece deserves some love. Draculaura looks like a stunning womanly vampire in this portrayal. I will keep this box forever. No lie. Thank you Mattel/Monster High for this super great collector doll and I am praying for me super amazing collector dolls down the line... PLEASE!
Now after I cut the tape from the box and lifted the lid magic happened! Not exactly but it was super exciting!

Now to get to Draculaura's cool diary, you just have to lift the tab on the box that says "pull" Very simple, the piece that Draculaura is attached to is not connected in any way to the bottom of the coffin box therefore making this pretty easy!
Her diary is so cute, it almost looks like a little comic book. There are entries that I did not take pictures of because my camera didn't want to focus on the font in it, but there are adorable pictures, and doll photography that I really enjoyed looking at.
You can see that they really didn't use much to tie Draculaura into her coffin, which I love because I'm not the biggest fan of over-packaging. Again I didn't remove her from her backing, but I wanted to show you guys what you should be getting right now in the MH world!
