Head Sculpt:
Bimong Narin 60 N611
Skintone:
normal
Body:
Granado 64cm (old normal)
  • Face-up artist(s):
    AlisonVonderland
    Date of acquisition:
    Spring 2013
    Provenance:
    Both body and head purchased seperately from the DoA marketplace
    Reason for choice:
    I fell in love with this head mold for my character because of its tender and melancholic expression. The body I chose partly for the stubby hands actually, and otherwise there's just something I enjoy about the physique style.
    Best Points:
    This will probably always be my favorite doll body. I love all the details of the appearance. I also think the emotive quality of the head sculpt is very powerful.
    Worst Points:
    The resin match could be better, but actually it's getting better over time. The face is very sad feeling to me, and it's only a part of the character I wanted to portray, so it limits me.
    This is the third doll version I put together to interpret my Kamael character. The first version was one of my earliest dolls. For a few years, I found it was very therapeutic to keep him as an ongoing project, to create him and then reshell him to create him again. When I created the version with this head I could not bear to reshell again because I think the sculpt is so beautiful (and uncommon).
  • Eyes:
    Pabol (blue) oval glass
    Wig:
    changing hair is part of his character
    Favourite colours:
    He prefers to wear mostly subdued colors or neutrals, but his favorite color is maroon.
    Fashion style(s):
    He prefers throwback American urban, athletic, beach and skater styles of the 1990's-2000's. He often wears only sweatpants and a beanie at home. He has an enormous collection of hats.
    Key fashion accessory:
    no shirt, beachy jewelry
  • Name story:
    He is named after the archangel Kamael ( also Chamuel and variations) as known in the Kabbalah. I can't really explain what I think this name evokes as well as I think can be explained in other texts about the angel. This doll character was created to symbolize the nature of my relationship with an actual person and does not literally represent the angel. I found this name fitting of my desire to represent with my doll the positive born from negative.
    Character age:
    early-mid 20's
    Character gender:
    male
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is available for offsite roleplay.
    This doll character was, at first, accidentally inspired by somebody important to me in my life, then later, intentionally molded to be a likeness of that person, a tribute. Later, the character began to deviate again from actual likeness of my friend as he became a conceptual embodiment of our relationship and a representation with the fictional representation of this person who appeared in my dreams.
