My experience with FDoll is overall positive and for the money spent, I'm quite happy with Candy. The doll came with free acrylic eyes in an adorable little pink box. It did take a little longer than the original estimated time, but they answered my query quickly and my doll came after a little longer wait.
- Face-up artist(s):
- almyki (myself)
- Modifications artist(s):
- Date of acquisition:
- March 2012
- I am the original owner of the doll and I bought it from the company.
- Reason for choice:
- She was incredibly cheap ($108 with shipping), the face was cute, and I liked the unique slimmer body design for a tiny doll. The price was a big factor!
- Best Points:
- So cheap, so I don't worry nearly as much about damaging the doll with sunlight, travel or other things. The face truly is cute and detailed, and the hands are cute and all the fingers are even separate. The legs have more posing options than my BlueFairies due to the mobility joints and double-jointed knees. The small and light size makes her the best travel doll for me! There are also many props/furniture pieces I find in regular shops that scale better to her small size than my bigger dolls.
- Worst Points:
- The thigh joints aren't the best; they don't allow the thighs to be posed as closely together as I'd like for some sitting poses. The elbow joints are always trying to bend completely inward, so they're difficult to pose naturally. The elbow and knee joints are ugly to me. The doll has unusual sizes in general, so YoSD shoes are big on them, finding clothes are hit-and-miss, and there are far fewer wigs available for the head size (5-6in) compared to 6-7in and up. The magnetic headcap for this particular doll has a very weak magnet, so I need to use sticky tack to keep the headcap on tightly. However, I owned another doll of the same type from FDoll with a much stronger magnet, so it's not an issue with all their dolls.
- Head Sculpt:
- Pale Normal Skin
- Tiny Girl Body
- 12mm MakoEyes Amaryllis (AM-004+AM-015)
- 5-6in Wig (Pink, blue)
- Favourite colours:
- Pink & Blue
- Fashion style(s):
- Sweet lolita fashion (pink and blue) and cute, girly fashions.
- Key fashion accessory:
- She loves her pearl-strap purse. The pink straw hat is a perfect headpiece to match her lolita fashion. Her favorite props are her cute teddy and her lamb companion.
- Name story:
- Her name is obviously from 'Cotton Candy', which is inspired from the 'pink and blue lolita' theme that created her!
- Character age:
- ??? Between 10-50 years?
- Character gender:
- Offsite roleplay:
- This doll's character is available for offsite roleplay.
Andolims were once considered luxury goods exclusive to the very wealthy, but Candy is one of the many recent models designed to be more affordable and widely available. Such dolls are not as sophisticated as traditional andolims, often with simpler mental faculties and 'stock' personality types and more limited learning capacity. Their emotional capabilities are the same, however.
Her Maker is a popular modern andolim manufacturer called A Little Company. Her original Owner is currently unknown and she is now a 'free' doll living in a doll town called Belle Tower. She runs a small but successful clothing boutique with her partner Cocoa Butter. The shop, Sweet Boutique, mainly sells ready-made and custom lolita clothing.
Candy is a bright and bubbly doll with a love of her work and livelihood. She's a eager saleswoman and a social butterfly, well-acquainted with the locals and her fellow shop owners. Her special skill is sewing and fashion, particularly girl's fashions and lolita. She enjoys sweet scents, shopping, fashion parties, and 'aroma dates'. Her affinity is air.
Note: An 'aroma date' is not a romantic date, but more similar to a tea party. It's a social gathering where the members share and enjoy various 'aromatics' together, such as perfumes, incenses, liquid-form aromas, and others. Dolls cannot eat, but they have much more acute senses of smell than humans, so aromas are an important part of their culture.
