Dolly Review: Ever After High Lizzie Hearts
Lizzie Hearts is finally in my collection! After months of searching, one lonely Lizzie was sitting on the shelf, waiting to be snatched up by yours truly. What can I say? Lizzie was totally worth the wait. (I’ve learned that this is actually the new re-issue of Lizzie. The original release had more details.)
Lizzie has tons of style. She’s on a short body, like Maddie, which draws her apart from many dolls in the Ever After High line.
Lizzie has rooted black hair with bright apple red highlights in the front.
I really like the contrast between the black and red. It looks great! Held in with tabs is a large gold crown. It looks really neat! I would recommend leaving the tabs in the doll, because I don’t see her crown staying in place without them. Behind her crown is a sprayed down curl. I lucked out and found a doll with a very nice curl, though with Mattel’s quality control problems, I can imagine some left with less than perfect hair.
Lizzie has a fantastic face. The show stopper is the heart that surrounds her right eye. Her eyes are large and green. They’re highlighted with heavy black eye liner and long lashes. Lizzie has red lips and her peach skin is blush free.
As far as outfits go, this may be my favorite Ever After High outfit so far! Lizzie wears a sleeveless dress that is perfect for her character. With a red, gold and black color scheme, her outfit is reminiscent of a decorative deck of cards.
The dress itself is very tight, but doesn’t look tight due to the checked fabric on the sides of the outfit. Lizzie’s black fish net tights are decorated with red hearts. With heavy play, you’ll probably find that Lizzie’s tights will slip down. Her red shoes play on the card theme, as well.
Lizzie’s joints work well. One thing to mention on her body, though, are her black gloved hands. She has black molded hands and two black bracelets that double as the ‘lacy’ bottom of the gloves.
As far as pros go, I love the look of Lizzie from head to toe! Her color scheme is spot on. The hair styling on this doll is cute and, to be honest, I prefer it to the prototypes (and short lived/hard to find original releases) styling which had two sausage curls atop her head. Her face paint is very pretty, as well. And finally, Lizzie’s short stature– I love it!
Cons are few and far between on this girl. I can’t think of anything that really bothers me about her final product, other than the fact that it took months to find her.
