as part of the Dragon Games line, we get Teenage Evil Queen (Raven's mother, as a teenager). I had thought she was an Amazon exclusive, but I'm pretty sure I saw her at walmart recently, so I'm not really sure. review spoiler: she ended up being disappointing.
the back of the box features a full body cartoon of the Teen Queen, her bio, and smaller cartoons of the 3 dolls in the regular line.
with the plastic out of the way we can see that she comes with a silver brush and stand, and a little booklet.
TQ wears a black and white shortsleeved dress. the top part is black and looks like a fake leather material. the skirt has multiple layers. the bottom layer is black netting with a black satin feel material poking out the bottom. it has silver printed on it in shattered glass patterns. I was hoping that mine was just scrunched up from being packaged, but it was actually sewn crooked. the middle layer is a white satin feel material. the top layer is incomplete and made of black netting with flames? printed on it in black.
a quick note: for some reason TQ's hair looks red in the box, and photographs red, but it is pink, with a little purple on the undersides. I really liked the idea of having a black/white/silver/red thing, but alas, it was not to be. also, the way her eyes were painted with a pink lid shadow on her eyewhites, she looks like she has a terrible case of pinkeye. and I'm not a fan of the big, purple, ungradiated, sparkly, eyeshadow circles. disappointment all around here. moving on....
TQ has a number of accessories, including black chandelier earrings, a tiara, and elaborate shoulder/neck armor. the armor and tiara are both molded in black plastic as well, but have a nice silver paintwash on them to bring out the many molded in details. the fact that they didn't bother to do this to the earrings as well just makes them look out of place and cheap.
she also has an asymmetric black belt that could have benefited from some paint. I guess it is supposed to balance out the asymmetric layer of her dress, but my OCD is just crying.
on each of her forearms TQ has one of these gauntlet type things. they have these weird "beaded" look bits that hang down between her fingers for some reason. these are also molded in black plastic with no paint. I think I'm going to get more fun out of painting her accessories than anything else about her.
as you can probably tell from the picture, there is no way she could stand on her own in these shoes. they are terribly warped. also molded out of black plastic with no paint, they are supposed to look like dragon tails or wings or something. sorry, this gal was such a disappointment, I'm just really tired of talking about her.
the booklet has an image of a fractured mirror on the front. inside the Evil Queen has a note that she is pretending to be a student named "Mira Shards" and includes excerpts from the diary she wrote when she was attending Ever After High.
The Bottom Line:
The Good: detailed accessories, one-off character
The Bad: needs more paint
The Verdict: I would feel disingenuous recommending Teenage Evil Queen. kids will probably still like her, but as a collector I just feel disappointed.
