I am SO excited to finally be bringing you this review of the Ever After High REBEL Darling Charming! That’s right! Her booklet calls her a Rebel!
Let’s dive into this review!
Darling is a beautiful doll with light blue eyes, light blue and purple eyeshadow, and pink lips. She has a birthmark below her left eye. Her eyebrows are a dark blonde/light brown color. You’ll notice my doll’s eyes might look a little weird. To be honest, I haven’t seen a photograph of one yet that looks correct. My doll’s eyes aren’t focused on anything. One eye stares ahead while the other looks off just a bit. It drives me crazy!
My favorite thing about Darling is her blonde and blue hair! Her magical touch is that when she moves her hair about, she can slow/stop time. I tried it out for myself, but alas, time still went at it’s normal speed. Too bad, because I could have used some extra time to get all of my to-do-list done this evening.
Speaking of silver clothing…. Darling’s dress features a silver top and bottom with vine detailing barely visible. The sleeves of the dress are light blue with pink ruffles on the edges. The light blue skirting features pink and blue glitter. This piece of fabric is rather stiff. The entire dress is one piece.
Darling herself is noticeably more tan than several of the girls that sit around my computer (Blondie, Apple, Raven). She is just a tad lighter than Ashlynn (and not pictured, Cerise). Think Barbie tan. This is actually a terrible photo.
To be honest, a lot of these photos were terrible! The silver of her dress and accessories was really messing with my camera. Even my photo editing software didn’t know what to do with it against the white/grey background. I totally should have done a different color background. Mental note: redo some of these photos on a black background!
Two accessories I think Darling should come with are a shield and sword. What great knight goes without a shield and sword?! We took the liberty of printing a set on our 3D printer and I am in love with the look! She looks very knightly (wait, is that a word?) here.
That’s it for Darling Charming. What do you think of her doll?
For me, I’m a little disappointed. My doll’s eyes make her hard to love. Is it just me? Or do you see it too?
