Physical Appearance[]

Carolyn has brown hair and used to wear a silver ring on her right pinky and a beaded ID bracelet on her left wrist. She has a tiny mole under her left eye. She grows her hair long and has trendier clothes then her twin. She has become very fashion-conscious, it would kill her to wear the same thing two days in a row as noted in Mary Anne and the Great Romance. Stacey McGill calls her style a mini version of hers and Claudia's style in Stacey and the Mystery at the Empty House.


In Mary Anne's Makeover, Carolyn plays out a Back to the Future fantasy. She becomes like the mad scientist from the movie and makes her own time machine in their basement. She sells tickets to take kids on a ride. They eventually give the kids back their money after Mary Anne helps her distinguish between reality and fantasy.

Marilyn watches over her when she sprains her ankle.

She plays Miles Standish in the play in Claudia and the First Thanksgiving.
