The latest movie from everybody’s perfectly imperfect teenagers, Monster High: Freaky Fusion, is out today on Blu-Ray and DVD.
Monster High is a pretty easy sell for E2 and the neighbourhood posse. When I was asked to throw a pre-screening party, featuring these stylish ghouls, I had to say yes. I am awfully sure E2 wouldn’t have spoken to me for ages if I hadn’t.
Our guests were all asked to wear their Monster High costumes. It wasn’t a big thing to ask – virtually everybody had been at Monster last year for Hallowe’en. I made up some pink and purple Jell-O popcorn to serve (what’s a movie without popcorn?), but we thought perhaps we needed something slightly more substantial. Brownies fit the bill.
Don’t worry – Goose pitched in in a big way and cleaned up all those dishes before the guests arrived.
Since some of our guests have a sensitivity to red food dye, some of our brownies were naked.
This super-easy pineapple based punch was sufficiently ‘groady’. It’s a blend of vanilla ice cream, pineapple juice, and ginger ale, sprinkled with maraschino cherries and juice.
Decorating was a group effort. Another mom in the ‘hood still had her stash of Monster High party decorations.
With a few additions from our own purple and pink party supplies, we were ready to get our Freaky Fusion on.
A few pieces of hair chalk made for tons of entertainment. E2 has been dying to try some out, ever since another little friend had some at her birthday party.
E2 also has a plethora of Monster High make up, which we put to good use. This little exercise taught me that there are a lot of moms who are a whole lot better at make up application that I will ever be. And perhaps some little girls, too.
Popcorn, candy, and punch in hand, the girls settled in for the big show. Here’s a sneak peek at what they were watching:
While attempting to help Frankie Stein learn more about her family scaritage, the ghouls inadvertently travel back in time to the year 1814, where they meet Sparky, a misguided teen scientist obsessed with the creation of life. Sparky follows Frankie back to modern-day Monster High, causing a lab accident that fuses eight ghouls into four new monsters! Unable to control their new freaky fusion bodies, they welcome the help of the new Hybrid students at Monster High who teach them howl to coordinate both halves of their monster flaws! Trouble explodes when Sparky constructs a deranged monster in his quest to create life. Now Frankie and friends have to stop Sparky’s science experiment gone wrong before it destroys the school – or worse.
