You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) Billed as “The Action Doll You Design,” my blue-haired, eyeglass-wearing, thin-lipped avatar looks like commentator S. E. Cupp if she went swimming in an overchlorinated pool! She’s not so much an action figure as a reaction figure: she came into her own during the cold, freezing, power-destroying days of the hurricane. Clad in her scientist outfit (lab coat, leggings, and plaid shirt), she was the principal player in our make-believe monster lab.

But even a savvy scientist has to leave her work behind at some point, and for a night on the town with her army of undead pals, she is snazzily dressed in a retro frock and a very warm red topcoat.

The interesting thing about Penelope is that she really was designed by me. Visiting MakieLab online, I was one of the early Alpha testers who picked the scale of the eyes and their color, the width of the nose, the turn of the mouth, the hue of the hair (and length), as well as clothing options. Then the blueprints were followed by the folks at Makie to make my 3-D printed, assembled, and packed mannequin. Made in and shipped from London, Penelope Bleu takes her name from an upper-crust society girl (Penelope) and a French continental twist on blueprints (Bleu). She’s a European genius who winged her way to the States to help cure boredom and doldrums brought on by inclement weather.

The Makie model arrived at my home in a great-looking black tube that reminded me of a storage bin for something historic or quite significant. Inside was its certificate of authenticity and a printed plan that shows the contours and internal workings of the finished design. Titled “The Very First Crash Course in Makies: Maintenance, Care and Love,” the document explains how a Makie owner can put makeup on the doll (though it doesn’t wash off entirely) or can personalize with acrylic paints. (That’s something I have to decide. For the time being, the ultra porcelain white skin gives Penelope an otherworldly look and mystique.) Made of plastic, the doll is sturdy, but the company’s owners suggest that young hands be supervised by adults when engaging in play.

We created all types of bizarre scenarios for Penelope and her pair of Monster High lab experiments. Perhaps her two companions are the epitome of her life’s work, or maybe they were built to keep her safe as she walks amid London’s fog. (Hey, would any mugger dare approach a young woman braced by a werewolf/dragon and a zombie vampire? I think not.) Or, perhaps, Penelope Bleu and her duo of undead pets were made to combat boredom, loneliness, and isolation? Being a pale-skinned, blue-haired scientific genius can make a girl feel all alone. And, believe me, trapped without electricity, heat, or phone service (landlines and cell), my kids and I can empathize greatly. Thanks, Mattel and Makie.Me, for giving us some things to keep us busy, occupied, and, most of all, a method for personalizing a very unique Halloween experience.
