Head Sculpt:
Mystic Adel
Revised Red Line Boy
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Purchased from First Owner
    Reason for choice:
    I had a first-release original Adel and wanted a Mystic to "complete the set", so to speak. It took me years to find them both.
  • Eyes:
    12mm Doll Bakery Cobalt
    8.5 Artificial Mohair in Black
  • Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    "Welcome to the central library of the Royal Arcanum... Allow me to introduce myself. I am Magus Kage Harruda, Archivist Obscura and associate professor of Arcane Bibliography. Mind the stairs and the stacks, freshman apprentices. They tend to wander."
  • So, what's the difference between an original first or second release regular Adel and the "Mystic" Adel from 2007, aside from the costume and slightly more dramatic face-up?

    The Mystic was apparently a resculpt of the original Adel. They're very, very similar and it's hard to tell the two faces apart unless you have them standing side-by-side... But when you do, the somewhat narrower shape of the head, slightly thinner nose and lips and the differences in the Mystic's jawline are a little easier to see.

    (Solomon, the blond, is an original Adel from 2006. Kage is a Mystic Adel from 2007.)

    The easiest way to tell them apart, though, is all about their ears.

    The Mystic's are quite a bit longer and more pointed than the original's, which are more rounded and tip downward. (I've only added a picture of their left ears here, but the differences apply to both sides-)
