.:In Tentationem:.

My doll collection has one major topic, the one of temptation, something that my characters should not fall prey to.
For some that means to resist love, not to listen to the voices in their head and others just try to find peace in a cruel world.

My collection has two stories, one evolving around a catholic priest, a doctor and a soldier on their journey of finally finding peace and happiness in their life.
The other one is part of a major chess world project I have with my girlfriend ChocolateDecadence, I own the black pieces while she owns the white ones. All my pieces are tan skin.
The stories are called "Agnus Dei" and "The Black Realm".
I also sometimes have a few dolls that do not belong to any of these stories.

Most of my stuff gets cross-posted on several sites, including my Livejournal, Flickr, sometimes my Tumblr, and several BJD forums.

It would also be nice if you'd ask me before reposting something on Tumblr, since I usually crosspost my work there anyway.
You can find my work there under the tag "aradolls" -> fuckinghardhat.tumblr.com/tagg….

If you are interested about my part of the chess world, the Black Realm, here's a link to my "wiki" for it:

Not all entries are translated to English yet, but the most important are.


My photos are NOT stock or are supposed to be used for roleplay characters, icons etc. on the internet.
If you want to post them somewhere please include a link to my deviantart, don't remove my signature or claim my work as yours.

Did you ever happen to get your April Story Julian?

I'm thinking of getting one myself, because of the sale, and I'm wondering your opinion on it :) and any photos if you happen to have them.

Yes, I actually got him on last friday :)
It took them roughly four month to make him, most likely because they got a lot of orders because of their last event.
You can see his box-opening here, I switched it on public ->
ara-xiii.livejournal.com/15239…

I personally like the mold, it is a bit like a Switch/Volks love-child of some sorts, and the head is also on the bigger side.
The doll itself is well made, but he came with a few little faults, like he has little dents in his face, but that's from the sculpting process, nothing majorly bad.
He can't sit that well for some reason but stands and poses fine mostly.
What I dislike are mainly his hands, he has crazily tiny hand joints and huge hands, and how thin the resin is in some places. I'm so afraid to break him while posing, also because he feels pretty light. I have to see how well he ages, but I haven't heard yet that they are prone to break.

Yikes ;o;
yeah, Im not a big fan of the hands either, super huge and way too crazy veiny for my taste. 

If you didn't see the news, they're shutting down and merging with some other company. So it looks like they're casting their remaining resin that's on hand, and selling premade dolls. They're promising 1-7day shipping time on top of the 40% discount, so it's tempting :/ especially since it's "my last chance"
But there are so few owner photos and so few reviews, sigh :[

Thank you for your review and box opening, though!

so much to think about *ponder ponder ponder*

This so much. I have chunky 70cm guys with smaller hands than him (and I'm not even talking about my lanky Dollshe guys), and they just look really weird on him.

Yeah, I read that yesterday :C
I was a bit shocked, I highly dislike it when a company stops producing a doll I own from them...especially in their case where finding a replacement would be pretty much impossible in case something happens to him.
I'm really not sure if the 7 day shipping already applies now?
I thought it applies when they start working with the new company in future x_x?
Else this would be really awesome.

And yes, there are really not that much people who own their dolls, the discussion threads on DoA are also pretty small.
I know a lot of people bought their bodies for Switch heads though, since they make these 40% events regulary, but else?
Not much to report.
