Cupid is such a beautiful doll! These Thronecoming dolls are crazy detailed!
The very first thing I noticed about Cupid was that her face is COVERED in gunk. It had collected dust/dirt and she was not attractive looking. This is what she looked like after a little wipe down. (still covered in gunk, though)
I want to get to Cupid’s wings, but first let me tell you about these two strands of hair. The doll comes with them rubberbanded to her arms at the elbow. DO NOT attempt to pull them through the rubber band. Cut that rubber band! The strand on my left (the doll’s right) was pulled through and lost most of its curl in the process. The strand on my right was cut and retains this beautiful curl similar to Apple’s.
The best feature of this Cupid doll is her wings. LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They attach with a necklace piece, like signature Cupid. The back features a heart shape! I just don’t have words to describe how amazing these things are!
The skirt is four layers. The top is a black mesh with pink dots and hearts. Under this is a pink sheer layer with pink glitter. The sheer layer with the frills is cut and lays directly on top of a very light pink (almost white) plain layer.
Cupid’s dress features a bottom piece, probably because the front is so open. I thought this was a little strange at first, but it adds an interesting piece to her dress. It also does not hinder her ability to sit in the new style stands.
Cupid’s mask is inspired by the pegasus. Once you know that, it is much easier to identify the little horses at the top. Her purse is also personally inspired by a family member, this time her uncle, Apollo.
Many people know Cupid is my base doll for my custom character, Phoebe Nix, and a few people have asked me if Phoebe will get an updated look. While I really want to make another Phoebe doll, I do not know how I could possibly rip out her hair and change this doll. Maybe Phoebe just needs these wings.
