Faybelle Thorn ~ Ever After High Doll Review

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….

But that wasn’t her…. This is:
Faybelle Thorn

And while I love this doll, I can’t lie that I love that background character a little more…

Faybelle Thorn
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 Thorn
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’s headband features a teal bow and more twigs.

Faybelle’s hair is in a high ponytail. I am LOVING these curls!

Faybelle’s wings are held on by this necklace attachment (similar to Cupid’s).

The wings are slightly translucent. There are some good photos floating around tumblr of her wings in front of different lighting. Try it out some time!

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.

Faybelle Thorn
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’s ring is the same style as Darling’s. Her ring looks like a cameo? I think?

Faybelle carries a purse that resembles a pom-pom. This is her only nod to her cheering side. I like that she is a cheerleader (they call them cheerhexers. WHAT?!), but that this doesn’t define her.

Faybelle Thorn
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!

Faybelle Thorn
I’m sorry. I just had to! I put Faybelle in one of the MH fearleading outfits (don’t worry! I only photo-edited out the symbol)

Faybelle and Darling
And that’s Darling and Faybelle! Did you add them to your collection? Are you planning on grabbing them?

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!!

  1. I looked at the earrings without my glasses on this morning (my secret for seeing teeny things) and I think the earrings are two roses with a long thorny stem that curls up a staff.

  2. My doll Faybelle does not have a weird headline at all. It is not messed up or anything. She is still one of my favorites. I hope I can get Darling from my dad.
