Rei

Maker:
Raccoon Doll
Head Sculpt:
Mika
Skintone:
Sweet Mocha
Body:
Slim body, small bust
Sex:
Female
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Raccoon Doll
    Date of acquisition:
    10/18/2016
    Provenance:
    Direct from Raccoon Doll
    Reason for choice:
    Rei is my current favorite OC, and I wanted a more portable version of her than her previous shell.
    Best Points:
    This is my favorite doll. Her body is proportionate and great at posing, especially with a little bit of hot glue sueding in her hips and ankles; her face is lovely and can look sarcastic, amused, or irritated depending on the angle. (Little photoshop tweaks really finish the effect!)
    Worst Points:
    My character's face is slightly more angular, less round, than the Mika sculpt...but that's not a flaw in the doll itself! If Raccoon ever has another head event, I might get a second Mika face and very lightly mod her to be more "Rei."
  • Eyes:
    Safrin Doll, 6mm Natural Espresso
    Wig:
    Many wigs, mostly self-made; most recently, Monique Wendy in Brown-Black.
    Favourite colours:
    Dark purples and reds
    Fashion style(s):
    Clean lines, sharp tailoring, Asian-inspired. (Also various historical styles, including hanfu and 1920s shanghai style.)
    Key fashion accessory:
    Hair flower, necklace
  • Character gender:
    Female
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is available for offsite roleplay.
    close to the city, but isolated from the noise, is a shop.

    it is small, clean, brown. there are books everywhere. it smells of tea and dried petals. a door in the back is locked. it leads to the stairs; the owner lives above. there are spotless white cups stacked behind the checkout counter, and other customers wander while sipping blends made just for them. no one has to place a specific order; they are given what they need. requests are met with incredulity.

    the woman behind the counter makes little eye contact and speaks too many languages with no accent. she has no gray hair or wrinkles, but is old enough to comfortably condescend to customers.

    why come here instead of the local big box store? it's hard to say. maybe it's the owner's encyclopedic knowledge of her stock, the way she always seems to have something helpful at hand; maybe it's the tea, inherently more relaxing than the pulse-racing experience of coffee. maybe it's well-kept landscaping out front, or the fat grey cat in the window who always narrows its yellow eyes to greet you.

    whatever it is, you will probably be back.

    there are only two types of people in the world: people who come back to Coldfire Books all the time, and people who forget they ever visited, until the name obscures itself from their memory and they might as well live in a different world.
