The other doll that came in our order yesterday was the Faybelle Thorn doll. To be honest with you, I am VERY surprised at how much I love this doll. I was very much not in love with her promotional photos and very upset she wasn’t the background character I wanted her to be….
And while I love this doll, I can’t lie that I love that background character a little more…
Faybelle has purple eyes and blue/teal eyeshadow. She has pink lips and grey-brown eyebrows. Her right eye also features a wing detailing. It was odd to me that this detailing wasn’t repeated on both eyes like in the webisodes…
But it actually makes the doll’s face less busy. I think that look (as seen on Avea Trotter) can get rather busy and over-powering.
Faybelle wears two earrings that look like twigs? Or sticks? She IS fairy, but I don’t really know what these are? Faybelle’s earrings should be mirror images of one another. My friend purchased a Faybelle, and she actually got two IDENTICAL earrings, but one of them had the twig part in the ear and the round/flat part outside. How weird?
Additionally, you can see her only stands of colored hair here. They are tied back with more hair.
You can see Faybelle’s other earring here. Do you notice anything else about this photo? LOOK AT THAT HAIRLINE! Whoa! What’s going on there! How do those holes ever get in the head if there isn’t hair?
Faybelle wears a black tunic with lacy sleeves and top. The shirt is all one piece. The rest of the shirt is covered in a glittered pattern. THE GLITTER! When I redressed her, that glitter was all over her body.
Faybelle’s pants/tights are a blue. Or maybe they are purple? It’s hard to tell in some lights. I think they are blue. Anyways! They go down almost to her ankles, but not really enough that it would look okays without the boots.
And Oh! Those boots! They are high boots with thorn/vine detailing on the heels. The laces are painted black. I think I would have liked if the tops were painted, but then again, they are just folded over from the boots, so I guess being the same color makes sense?
Faybelle is a new skin color. She isn’t the same kind pale as Apple, but not as purple as Kitty. Her skin shimmers (have you noticed? Go back up and look at the photos of her face). I am in LOVE with her skintone!
Before I bought them, I would have said Darling was my hands-down favorite. Now that they are sitting on my table, Darling will probably just sit on the shelf and Faybelle is a total winner! I seriously need some EAH cheerhexing (ugh, I hate that pun. Why can’t they be charmleaders?) outfits!!
