    Date of acquisition:
    April 2020
    Provenance:
    Purchased from Doll Chateau through Fabric, Friends and Dolls
    Reason for choice:
    I’ve been looking for a sculpt to represent my OC (inspired by the manga “Chobits” by Clamp) for nearly a decade. I was also wanting to get a Doll Chateau SD for my collection for a long time. When I saw this very unusual girl I knew she was absolutely perfect!
    Best Points:
    The modeling of her very unusual mechanical body, plus her elongated joints which make her very elegant.

    Oscar Doll eyes (sakura) pink in 14mm
    Wig:
    Pastel teal blue fade to white (ombre) 7/8
    Favourite colours:
    Any and all
    Fashion style(s):
    Country-girl Mori-esque outfits
    Key fashion accessory:
    Hats of course!
    Bunny du Bonnet wears soft, country style Mori outfits she cobbles together from whatever pieces she finds in old trunks while scrounging for haberdashery trims. And of course, as a talented milliner, she always wears one of her own stunning hats!
  • Name story:
    She’s been modded to have bunny ears, so I thought Bunny du Bonnet was a fitting name since it sounded fashionably French and also played into her backstory as a hat maker.
    Character age:
    Appears to be somewhere in her 20s (but she’s actually a computer, so who knows?)
    Character gender:
    female
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    Bunny du Bonnet was built as an early prototype of the Chobits line of persocoms (inspired by the manga “Chobits” by Clamp) but she was never fully completed. Her inventor and concept designer feared that her skin was far too pale ("white as paper,” he said) and was not realistic or resilient enough to endure the rigors of the ordinary uses he’d designed her for. He switched to a different medium mid-build, and as an unfinished prototype she was simply sent off to a colleague in the US to be scrapped for parts. On a whim, the colleague instead attached mechanical bunny ears and presented her as a holiday novelty to his young daughter for Easter. The two of them happily whiled away the hours exploring the attic together, digging through old trunks and dressers for antique fabrics and elegant trims to make fancy Easter bonnets. After a few years however, the girl became a teenager wanting “the latest thing”, and as her style and tastes changed, Bunny was placed away in the attic for safe keeping...until eventually she was completely forgotten altogether. No one quite realized she was, even as a Chobit prototype, already quite capable of learning on her own and developing her own identity. So eventually she took her memories and love of hat-making to the fantasy realm beyond the hedgerow and opened up her own shop there.
