When I buy a new doll, I either buy one that fits an existing character in my and Sarg's story or in some cases I fell in love with the sculpt and want to create a new character around it. With Aehael it was the latter. However, during these months that I've waited for her I haven't gotten any ideas about her character and before yesterday the poor girl didn't even have a name... Which feels quite strange to me, since I'm used to having everything planned out before a doll's arrival ^^;
We chatted with Sarg and thought that Aehael could be Ophelia's little sister, so I started looking for a name that matches with Ophelia. Since it is a Greek name, I obviously looked at Greek names first and somehow tumbled on a bunch of mythology names. That's where I found the perfect one, Hespera. I think it matches nicely with Ophelia, without being too similar :)
Anyway, enough rambling for now! Let's move on to the photos :)
Yay there she is ;3; Besides Aehael, there are also a few Zenith girl hand parts that I added to my order after realizing that Lanarwen could use some extra hands!
All the stuff! Heel feet, horn, etc. were all packed separately :)
Souldoll always packs their dolls super carefully~ ♥ There's a face mask and Aehael's delicate fantasy ears were well-protected as well!
I ordered my girl in sandy brown :) At the time I placed the order, I had no idea what it'd look like in person, but then Sarg's sandy brown Tera Zenith boy arrived and I knew what to expect. It's a really pretty resin color~ ♥
The horn is in gorgeous magenta-shaded transparent resin! I don't plan on using it though ^^; I only got this head instead of the human head because of the cute ears! The hole on the forehead can easily be covered with a wig.
Horn attaches to the head nicely with a magnet and seems to stay on pretty well. The color also matches nicely with her default eyes!
These are the eyes and wig that I was planning for her. The wig is one of Leekeworld's Art wigs and the eyes came with my Souldoll Junia. After trying them on Aehael though, I feel like they'd look better with pupils... So I probably need to buy another pair of eyes for her, and I'm still unsure about the wig as well ^^; Ugh, some dolls can be so difficult...
I do think she's a pretty doll and all, but I'm not bonding with her yet ;___; That's probably no wonder though, since she doesn't have a proper character plan nor faceup. Sarg promised to help me out with the faceup and maybe then I get a better idea on this girl and her future. I try to be optimistic, since I'd hate to part with this beauty! Hopefully things end up working out :3
