Dorian Harding

Maker:
Volks
Head Sculpt:
Kanata
Skintone:
pureskin normal
Body:
Volks SD
Sex:
Male
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Volks
    Date of acquisition:
    October 7, 2009
    Provenance:
    Purchased at the Studio Alta Volks Sumika in Tokyo.
    Reason for choice:
    idrisfynn and I planned to have SD boy twins but couldn't decide on a sculpt we both liked equally well. After we accepted that the boys could be non-identical, she went with Michele and I chose Kanata. I liked his mischievous expression.
    Best Points:
    The smirk.
    Worst Points:
    I would have preferred a jointed torso. And his head is strangely narrow and small for a Volks doll so wigs always eat his face or look too puffy.
    Kanata was released as part of the Tenshi no Sumika Standard Fair (21st~22nd September, 2009). He was added to the Tenshi no Sato FCS on March 14th, 2011 and to the Tenshi no Sumika FCS on September 24th, 2011.
    I decided to buy him in person while I was in Japan in October of 2009 and went to every Sumika in Tokyo (there were quite a few more back then) only to discover each time that he was sold out. My last stop was Studio Alta, where they had one on display and one in a box. They let me examine the face-ups of each and select the one I preferred. I bought him some glass eyes and an outfit while I was there and put him together in my hotel room so he wouldn't arrive at Tenshi no Sato in his underwear the next day. I had to leave his box behind in the hotel when we moved on to Kyoto since it wasn't the kind that folded flat and I just couldn't carry anything else.
  • Eyes:
    Brown urethane, 16mm (DropRops, Dollshe or Gumdrops)
    Wig:
    Volks
  • Character age:
    Nine
    Character gender:
    Male
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    If Dorian is not already outside he is rigging a zip line from his window to a tree so that he can get outside.
    He is generally confident in his ability to accomplish whatever trick he's decided to attempt, but often fails to account for his brother's lack of corresponding ability.
