You know how in every hobby, there are some people who are just so darn good at what they do and they garner lots and lots of fans? It’s the same in the BJD hobby; some people are just amazing at their doll styling, or painting face-ups, or sewing and crafting doll clothes and accessories, sometimes all of the above. If you ask who my BJD idols are, AUC is definitely one of them.
Her dolls and creations are the very definition of ‘viewing pleasure’. The girls are so princess-y and dainty without being over the top, and the prop crafting is almost god-like. Her doll-sized vanity table and cosmetics make me want to weep in shame at my lack of talent. Her face-ups are also to die for. If I want a Unoa (which I do), it’s entirely because of her.
Recently, she was involved in a collaboration with Alchemic Labo where the default wigs of the Fairy skin Unoa Zeros were designed by her, and the sets also featured photographs of Unoa Zeros customized by her. I’d imagine it to be such a dream and honour to be able to work with a company that you’ve been a fan of for a long time! (I’m taking the liberty to assume that she is a fan, since she does own and make stuff for Unoas!)
In essence, she can paint gorgeous face-ups, craft detailed backgrounds and props, sew stunning clothes with matching accessories, and make beautiful doll wigs. So amazing, right? I’d like to become as good, or at least somewhere near, someday.
