Greetings everyone! I hope your holidays are going well and that you aren’t too overwhelmed by all of the dolly goodness that has been hitting our shelves. The new Ever After High line Spring Unsprung has hit Targets, Toys R Us, and Amazon stores near you! I ordered this Cerise Hood from Amazon because I couldn’t wait to get her! I’m hoping to get the other dolls for Christmas
Cerise wears dark red eyeshadow and deep red lipstick. You can see that my doll’s right eye has lost some paint on the bottom. She came out of the box like this. This defect is not major to me, as I only notice it when I am looking for it, but be aware that defects like this do occur.
So which Cerise Hood are you getting? Cerise Hood has (at least) two VERY different facial screenings depending on where the doll was made. THIS doll was made in Indonesia, and has a face similar to the first Cerise Hood doll that came out in the United States. Here are some comparisons:
Cerise Hood Version 1.0 from Indonesia
Phew! That’s a lot of Cerise Hood faces! And they are all so slightly different. My favorite is the 2.0 Made in China version, but that’s just me.
Cerise wears a (plastic) crown of flowers and what looks like branches with berries. She has a purple streak to go with her usual white streak. The bookmark that comes with her really doesn’t mention why the dolls have this new hair color, but each of the Spring Unsprung dolls have a new hair color streaked into their hair.
That flower crown is attached to her head on either side with these plastic tabs that go into her head. These differ from the normal tab in that they have spherical ends. They are more attractive than the usual tabs, so if you wanted to leave them in to ensure you don’t lose the piece, it doesn’t distract from the overall aesthetics.
Another thing to note in this photo is Cerise’s Hood. It will not cover that plastic flower crown, but still looks attractive in this way.
My favorite thing about this doll are these tights!! Looks how awesome they are! Purple and red flowers, black branches, and a white background. I love them! They are full footless tights (going all the way up and ending at the ankle)
Cerise’s boots are black with white flowers up the shin. I am not a huge fan of these boots. Those white flowers just look like a big white blob. They contain little detailing and I almost wish they hadn’t painted them at all. It just looks like someone threw paint at her leg.
And that’s Spring Unsprung Cerise Hood! The story behind this line is a Spring Fair(est) and Lizzie Hearts has designed all of the girls’ outfits. I didn’t know Lizzie was a designer until this line. Her Wonderlandiful style can definitely be seen, though, as all of the dolls from this line have VERY busy outfits! Cerise was the least busy of them all, which may be why she was the first I fell in love with. This doll is absolutely beautiful and a must-have for ever Ever After High collection! The doll comes with the mentioned accessories, a stand, and a brush. She retails for $24.99 and will make an excellent addition to your collection!
Until next chapter, have a happily ever after
