I remember seeing one of Donn's original Break Step Velocity character dolls (Steve) at the very first doll meet/market I ever went to. I thought it was incredibly cool, but in my nervousness and excitement, never asked the owner who or what he was. Years later someone here on DoA mentioned Bishonen House in reference to Donn's older 80 cm sculpts. I went off to his website to investigate, and found Spade. Needless to say, I immediately loved his design, but I had just missed out on the pre-order. I emailed Donn asking when he'd be back in stock, and Donn replied saying probably the following April.
- Face-up artist(s):
- Body blushing artist(s):
- Modifications artist(s):
- Date of acquisition:
- July 11th, 2017
- Bought directly from Donn Kinney (Bishonen House)
- Reason for choice:
- I adore comic books, and this unique comic book-esque doll just drew me in.
- Best Points:
- He poses really well! The body is very nicely engineered and he's light and small enough for travel.
- Worst Points:
- Finding clothes that fit his odd proportions is a little tricky.
I then completely forgot about it. Again. Eventually I joined the Bishonen House discussion thread here on DoA and was alerted to Donn's Patreon, where I was able to purchase a very flawed, but otherwise complete cast Donn had made while cleaning out his casts. He was a lot of work to fix and put back together, but he's absolutely one of my favourite dolls!
