1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

Kestrel Knight

Head Sculpt:
68cm Muscle Male Body
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Abel/Make me real
    Date of acquisition:
    April 2018
    Bought directly from the company
    Reason for choice:
    His serious, masculine, yet innocent face is perfect for the character, as is his strong stocky-ish build.
    Best Points:
    He holds poses like a champ. If I set him down he will stay standing for days without support. Easily the most stable of all my dolls. I love his face as well and the sculpting of his body.
    Worst Points:
    He holds poses well, but getting him into them can be rather tricky since his joints can be hard to move. Not helped by how insanely tight he's strung.

    "No matter what, I can’t just turn my back. I would never be able to live with myself."

    Kestrel Knight is the protagonist of my novel Our Secret Storm. Born the bastard son of a royal courtier, Kestrel grew up expecting no greater fate than becoming a soldier. Everything changes when his mother dies and Kestrel is forced to take her place at court. Not only does the naive, straightforward Kestrel have trouble fitting into the court of schemers, he also has to guard a deadly secret. While he pretends to be an energos, part of the dominant caste of magic users, in reality he can cast powerful magic without needing a bonded partner.

    Kestrel has a pure heart and innate sense of justice, but he's terrified of revealing his secret. Because of this, he tries his best to avoid attention. Easier said than done when everyone at court wants to manipulate him for one agenda or another, including the prince's consort, Aramy Basquiale. For his part, Kestrel finds himself drawn to the mysterious Aramy, and begins to find in Aramy the understanding and acceptance he's longed for his entire life. But does Aramy feel the same about him, or is Kestrel just walking into his trap?
