    Avalon is what happens when I don't see enough unicorn folk running about online, haha! I have always loved drawing and roleplaying, and I especially love creating new races and things of that sort. While I know unicorn people are not a first, it just seemed natural to create my own roleplay character, design her, and then eventually bring her to life in the form of a BJD.

    I initially had a really hard time finding a sculpt I liked for her. Everything was just - I don't know. I struggled a lot, point being. There were prices to consider, sculpts, body types, all manner of things. While I have drawings of her and a clear image of Avalon in my head, I was really worried about how it was going to translate out into doll form, so after a LOT of deliberation and comparing, I ended up going a safe route and getting a ResinSoul Ai.

    I had a lot of reasons for why I did this, the biggest one being price. I'm relatively new to the hobby and have only been in it a year, but I've made a lot of mistakes with dolls that cost me a lot of money and I wound up selling most of them, so the price point was a good reason for Ai.The other reason I liked this sculpt was the fantasy legs - my version of unicorn folk have faun legs, but not the Mr. Tumnus kind of legs. I really liked the sculpt for the sleek design of the legs. In addition, her face was really delicately done and I absolutely loved it.
  • Eyes:
    Ersa Flora
    Wig:
    Random eBay purchase
    Favourite colours:
    White and gold
    Fashion style(s):
    Earthen, Mori Kei
    Key fashion accessory:
    Quartz necklace
    After ordering I spent a large amount of time trying to find perfect accessories. Unfortunately, this didn't go well and I had many flops with wigs that I ordered and wound up hating. The one she sports is just a random one I found on eBay that I really love and was perfect for her. It needed modifications to allow for her ears, though. For her outfit, she honestly didn't even have it for the better part of a year (mainly because her character is naked pretty much all the time.) I found the outfit at the 2016 PNW BJD Expo.

    When she arrived, I was ecstatic! The doll was exactly what I wanted. The problems I have currently are the flopping stringing that Resinsouls tend to arrive with, so that needs fixing. But honestly, I didn't care. I was so thrilled with the doll, but nothing compared to how hard I fell for her when I got her back from her faceup artist.

    Resinsouls tend to get a lot of crap. She's my second one and I absolutely love the sculpt and the company. When she came back from Culur - whom I had sent a drawing of what I wanted Avalon to look like, which she copied exactly - I couldn't believe how beautiful she had turned out, and honestly whenever I find myself wanting another doll I just look at her, and I don't want anymore. She's beautiful, perfect, and everything I wanted in Avalon. The eyes from Ersa Flora made her come to life in ways I couldn't even imagine. Her necklace was a stroke of luck after a friend gave me a little knitting kit that had beads included, one of them being this tiny quartz pendant. I ended up taking the pendant off another BJD necklace and replacing it with the quartz one, and bam :D Perfectly proportioned crystal necklace.

    The rest of her body blushing, hoof painting, and nail painting was all done by myself.
