Ever After High Dexter Charming

I finally got the Ever After High Dexter Charming doll for a great price from Amazon on Cyber Monday. Shipping was so fast. It was incredible. 

Dexter is a prince so he's a royal. 

I'm so excited. I've wanted him for a long time but I couldn't find him in the toy stores. The online price was ridiculous until Cyber Monday. 

I need more male dolls that are articulated. They're hard to find at a reasonable price. 

I can't wait until Mattel releases another boy from Ever After High. I hope they release Dexter's brother Daring Charming or the one that wears green and plays guitar in the webisodes on YouTube. I forgot his name and I don't feel like googling it. 

This is the back of his box. It has an interview with Dexter. It says his roommate Hunter Huntsman and other crap. It's in French and English. 

I'm very happy that the doll doesn't have that stupid smirk on his face. 

His hair was a complete mess out of the box so I fixed that first. I used regular old hair gel to slick it down. I like his hair best this way. He's a very good looking young man. 

Here he is wearing his glasses and crown. I don't like this look at all. These will be the first to go. 

His clothes and accessories seem to be made out of cheap materials. They aren't as nice as Hunter Huntman's. Nothing he's wearing matches. He's clashing like crazy. Maybe Mattel was going for the newest, ironic hipster look. I guess that explains the ugly glasses with no lenses. How cheap. I hate it. 

I have no idea what this is supposed to be. Don't care, either. It's hideous. 

Here are his high top sneakers. Hunter's boots are much better. 

There is simply no excuse for this sorry backpack. It's made out of dull looking, hollow plastic. It doesn't even open. Precious natural resources were wasted to make this. 

There isn't anything I can do with this thing. I'll probably throw it away. I don't even want it taking up space in my tiny apartment. I couldn't get it to show up very well in photos. Just ugly. 

At least, Hunter's bag can open and close and you can put stuff in it.   

I'll buy Dexter a new one soon. 

Dexter and Hunter have the same exact hands. Why? I just don't know. 

Here's Dexter and Hunter. Great looking guys. 

I put Hunter's boots on one of my Taeyangs. I broke a foot prying the boots off Taeyang's foot. I glued his foot back together the best I could. 

I learned a very valuable lesson. I'll never put a pair of boots on a Taeyang ever again. 

Here are their stands. Pretty much the same. 

Here are Liv dolls wearing Apple White's and Dexter's glasses. 

Hunter and Dexter are much better looking than Liv doll Jake but Jake has more dexterity. He can do crazy poses. He's just real ugly. 

These two look like they're more than roommates to me. 

Hunter has inherited the crown. Dexter doesn't mind. It looks better on him. He looks like a Persian prince. 

Guess who makes a cute couple? 

Here's Hunter wearing his new crown and sitting on his new throne. He makes a pretty good royal.

Little Pullip Rida

I ordered a couple of dolls from during their Cyber Monday sale. The prices were excellent plus free shipping with no tax so I decided to get a Little Pullip. I'm still not willing to buy a regular Pullip doll.

I didn't take that many photos of this doll because I really don't like it. There is nothing special about it. 

She's a mini version of this Pullip:

I don't own this photo. I got it from Google images. As you can see, this Pullip looks pretty awesome. Her outfit is really nice. I'm not crazy about her wig but I love everything else about her. I don't know anything else about this doll. 

Anyway, I'm stuck with this thing:

Here she is right out of her box. Hair is a mess. Boots and socks are painted on. Her clothes are cheaply made. It was hard to get her on her stand with her jacket on. I was happy that she, at least, came with a stand. Her eyes are big and crazy looking. She's about 4 1/2 inches tall. 

She came with a little button which you can see in this photo. Whoopie!

This is the back of her box. 

Here she is with a Littlest Petshop Blythe. I have several LPS Blythes. I like them muck better. They have much cuter faces, better made clothes, real shoes, were cheaper and came with pets and accessories. A better buy, IMO. 

Unfortunately, LPS Blythes have been discontinued but they can still be found for sale online for inflated prices. 

Here's a close up. Not a good photo. I did put gel in Rida's hair to tame it. It looks much better. She has eyelashes that are shorter than Blythe's. Her eyes don't move. 

She fell off of a shelf. Here's how she landed. I get tired of her falling over. The stand isn't sturdy. 

RIDa with my new Taeyang Alberic that I also ordered on Cyber Monday. They've become fast friends and they look so cute. But, whatever. I'll never get another Little Pullip doll again.
