New Ghoul, Grimmily Anne McShmiddlebopper, made an appearance on the Monster High Freaky Fab 13 on May 13, 2012. The picture of Grimmily Anne appears next to an announcement about Monster High partnering with a new non-profit group called WeStopHate. The new character's name seems to be based on the teenage founder of the group Emily Anne Rigal. We will likely see a tie in between the new character and the message of WeStopHate.

About Grimmily Anne McShmiddlebopper
The Fashion File
Grimmily Anne appears to be some kind of sea monster. She has a blue complexion (I would say close to the color of the 3 Eyed Ghoul) with short purple hair with pink highlights. Like Lagoona Blue she has fins and webbed fingers, but unlike Lagoona Blue she has a tail.
I love the protruding ears and the seashell hair accessory in Grimmily's hair. Her shoes look like they are laced with kelp or seaweed. Miss McShiddlebopper will make a great inclusion to the Monster High student body.
Iook forward to seeing how she helps the other ghouls accept their freaky flaws.
I like the pink dress that she wears paired with the stripped leggings.
The Girl Who Inspired Grimmily Anne McShmiddlebopper
Emily-Anne Rigal founded WeStopHate.org when she was 16 years old in order to help tweens and teens learn to accept themselves and help them increase their self esteem.
As a child in elementary school Rigal was picked on for being over weight and was eventually forced to switch schools.
It was not until Rigal began accepting herself that she felt happy. Through her website and speaking engagements this girl tries to help other girls deal with their self image and bullying.
Rigal adores wearing pink bows in her hair and the Monster High character inspired by her will sport a pink shell like bow in her hair. I love Mattel's attention to detail when creating Monster High characters.

The Message of Monster High Grimmily Anne
Her Role at Monster High
Grimmily Anne will most likely be an ambassador of self esteem and helping people deal with bullies and their flaws. I expect she may have a role to play with the situation between Jackson Jekyll and Manny. According to the WeStopHate tumblr page Jackson is looking for some of the WeStopHate bands to sport.
As Jackson Jekyll says:
“These bands are a great way to show a bully like Manny that no matter what he thinks, I’m proud of who I am.”
I hope Jackson is able to snag some of these bands. I wonder how Manny will react to them and Grimmily Anne.
