one of my favorite characters in the Ever After High web series is Dexter Charming. as a somewhat geeky, but very socially awkward person, I kind of identify him as a kindred spirit.
he comes in the standard Ever After High box. the back features his cartoon, his bio, and smaller cartoons of the other characters in this wave of basics. there is also the standard keyhole cutout, which I still don't really understand.
one side of the box looks like the spine of a book, with his cartoon portrait and name.
without the glare of the outer plastic you can get a better look at Dexter and what all is included. he has a backpack and his story bookmark. he also comes with a plastic stand that is packaged in between the layered cardboard backing.
Dexter wears a sharp blue plaid jacket with gold trim over his dark grey jeans. his shirt is a sleeveless mottled grey with the Ever After High logo printed over it in gold.
he accessorizes with a blue and white infinity scarf. he also has some sort of a gold plastic crest sewed to the lapel of his jacket. and a gold plastic chain sewed to his pants. I figured it was part of a belt, but it is not.
unlike his female classmates, Dexter wears a very sensible pair of shoes to school-- black hightop sneakers. the black is accented with white paint on the soles and the toe.
his final accessory is a pair of thick rimmed black glasses (note: unlike Monster High glasses, these have no lenses). while I feel like he isn't really Dexter without them, they do hide his pretty blue eyes.
Dexter's backpack is molded out of black plastic. it is a one shoulder backpack, and has tons of skulpted details including buckles, zippers, and pockets, that are hard to see due to the fact that there is no paint on it at all. I plan on rectifying this soon. also, despite being large and hollow, the backpack has no opening.
The Bottom Line:
The Good: nice doll, reasonable adaptation of the character
The Bad: might be hard to find, no paint on backpack
The Verdict: Dexter Charming is a popular character, and a boy, and is likely to end up being hard to find. I was lucky enough to be browsing amazon during the brief moment he was available one day. so far I've really been enjoying him, so I recommend a buy.
