A few weeks ago we got another big snowstorm here in the North East, so I wanted to share a few photos of one of my favorite Ever After High dolls, Poppy O'Hair from the Fairest on Ice line.
We found ours at Walmart back in December of 2015 and I believe she was about $19.99. She was one of those dolls that was always priced high on Amazon because I think she may have been a Walmart exclusive, but I'm not totally sure about that. Either way, I had been looking for this line for a while and I remember seeing all three (Poppy, Dutchess and Ashlynn) in the store and I bought them all at once! I NEVER DO THAT.
As you can see, Poppy has much longer hair than we are used to seeing on her.
Here is the 3 minute webisode from YouTube that introduces and teases the Fairest on Ice Line.
The doll looks nothing like her cartoon version (the one on the right.)
At first glace, she looks just like her sister, Holly, but they kept her signature purple streak to help us remember it's Poppy. I love the details in her accessories. This was back when Ever After High really seemed to have the budget to add these extra touches. It's a little hard to tell, but she is also wearing a headband with three snowflakes.
I love her light makeup.
She has two delicately painted snowflakes on one cheek and earrings that resemble icicles.
She wears a metallic corded belt with a scissor detail and dangling snowflake.
Pretty detail on her glittery purple purse.
She also came with a silver brush and silver stand.
She's a beautiful doll. I decided to take her outside for a winter photo shoot, but sometimes I feel like "less is more" so I ditched the accessories for this one. (Also, I could only find one skate at the time so she is barefoot, lol.)
Have any of you seen promo photos of the new EAH dolls that are coming out? What are your thoughts? Some are articulated so that's definitely a plus, but for me, I still haven't fallen in love with their new smaller heads and smiling faces. Some I like better than others (Blondie), but everything about them is so minimal that I am not very inspired to add them to my collection.
I have so many already that are still in their boxes waiting for their own fun photo shoots and I think the only one I am still actively looking for is Birthday Ball Dutchess. :)
For next time, I will be sharing with you my thoughts and plans for putting together a proper doll room soon as I just shot a video of how bad it's gotten with my "hoarding" so stay tuned! I really need to organize and figure out what I really want to keep if I want to be stress-free about it and enjoy this hobby again. :)
Hope you all have a good day!
