Cerise Hood

Cerise Hood!
This character is one of my favourites on the Ever After High webisodes, both in look and design and in character and personality. Cerise is super cool looking, with a darker, edgier outfit then most of the others (she is a Rebel, after all!) So when the first images of her as a doll started appearing online, I was super excited. And now I am very glad to have added her to my collection, and shes a stunner!

I absolutly love everything about her outfit, from her red hooded cape, her plaid dress and her stockings/boots combo. She looks freaking awsome. But this doll does of course have one major dissapointment: she does not have wolf ears. The character on the show has wolf ears, in fact there was a whole episode dedicated to the reveal of Cerises “secret”. This is a very odd ommission to me, since Mattel is of course also responsible for the Monster High line, several characters in which do indeed have animal ears. So we know that it isnt as though they dont have the budget or ability to make a unique head mold for this character featuring wolf ears.

Iv been waiting to see if any of the other Cerise releases have the wolf ears, but no dice. Even the Comic Con Exlusive Cerise, which features a completly wolf-ified design (which looks gorgeous by the way, that item is going on my grail list for sure) looks as though it may or may not actually have the wolf ears. So I finally caved and bought the basic Cerise because I do love her a lot, even if the lack of wolf ears greatly dissapoints me.

Everything else about this doll is amazing however. I love all of her accessories, and shes one of the few dolls I am actually displaying with her purse! She also has a slightly darker skintone then the other Ever After High girls (though the lighting in my photos is making it appear a lot more yellow-y then it is in person)
Her straight hair is beautifully cut into bangs. Its a lot longer then it appears in the show, though in the show her hair is always obscured by her hood, so its hard to tell exactly how long her hair actually is. I know a lot of people have expressed dissapointment not to find a cute little bob cut, but I do very much like the length here.

All in all I do love her… Wolf ears or no. Shes one of my favourite characters, so I could hardly pass her up 🙂

Raven Queen

Newest Ever After High doll to be added to my collection is none other then Raven Queen!
And honestly, while I always thought Maddie was going to be my favourite EAH doll, Raven’s gothic elegance has totally won that spot. I think shes the most gorgeous of the three I have actually. Her dark beauty has thoroughly bewitched me. :3

One of the reasons that I adore these EAH dolls is the absolutely gorgeous medieval fantasy outfits. Monster High is fine, but its all modern fashion which I find kind of boring. EAH’s appeal is all in the lacy old fashioned gowns that look like the walked right out of a fairy tale. Swoon!
Ravens get up is no exception and she looks exquisite. Everything you could want from a gothic evil villainess (made even awesomer by the fact that, if you’ve seen the webisodes, you know shes not actually evil at all!)

Shes also got amazingly styled hair which impressed me a lot more then either Apple or Maddie. The shape the hair takes is perfect, and looks like she walzed right out of the cartoon!

In general Im also finding these dolls to be better quality then the Monster Highs, particularly in the nice stiff joints and all around sturdiness of the dolls. They seem to be built for collecting and displaying!

Ill be keeping my eyes out for Cedar Wood next! 😀

Apple White and Madeline Hatter – Ever After High dolls!

Now that the Christmas buzz has died down a little bit I have some time to post some pictures of the dolls that I was the most excited to get.
I have been drooling for months over everyones pictures and reviews of the new Ever After High dolls. Things don’t tend to get to Canada as soon as other places, especially when the initial release isn’t for the typical big retailers like Toys R Us or Target. (Justice? Why???)

But finally, here are my first two Ever After High dolls. For Christmas from my lovely husband I received Madeline Hatter and Apple White.

Maddie is for sure the one I was the most pumped over. Iv loved ever photoset Iv seen of this doll and I love her character in the web series. Shes absolutely gorgeous and I LOVE. HER. HAIR. Wild, curly, colourful, whats not to love?? Shes so darling I could just eat her up. Her outfit is killer, her accessories are amazing, shes probably one of my most favourite dolls and Iv been waiting for her for so long.

One of the first things I notice about these is how stiff their joints are compared to a Monster High. They feel sturdier and more secure. They are a bit of a pain to pose but once you do get them into a pose you like, they aren’t moving!

Apple is lovely as well, and even if her character is a little less likeable in the series, you cant deny her visual design is gorgeous. I love her dress and style.
Of course I would have preferred the daughter of Snow White to have black hair instead of blond, but shes still very pretty. I really love the Apple theme and her hair is styled really nicely. I like how its all gathered to one side in soft ringlets.

The only trouble with her is that that strapless dress dosnt like to stay up! Iv had this trouble before with dolls in strapless dresses. Be careful putting her on the stand, because it likes to drag the dress down and — OOPS! Bit of a wardrobe malfunction 🙂

I am absolutely in LOVE with the Ever After High dolls. The dolls themselves seem to be higher quality then the Monster High dolls, which is saying a lot because the Monster High dolls are pretty darn good quality. These feel sturdier and stronger, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Medieval Lolita look to their outfits.

The next ones I absolutely need are Raven Queen and Cerise Hood. But who am I kidding. Ill probably get them all.
