Pipos specializes in Anthro BJDs although they have branched out into smaller-sized human dolls as well. I already have their Bao, fennec fox, and did not plan on getting any more (no matter how cute they are!!!). However, Pipos started making more mature-bodied anthros with their Midsummer Nights boy and girl cats, and their styling definitely intrigued me. I was tempted right away by D. Demon boy, with dark 18thC style. ... but resisted! At least until I saw this guy! *sigh*
His romantic style really fit with the "A Midsummer Night's Dream" theme. I loved his clothes--kinda Renaissance style, that also fits. Not as tailored as the Demon, but nice. It suited the rakish scar over his eye, and the grey tabby-like stripes with a blue-ish tint. I had to find a suitable swash-buckling name, and "Kit Marley" after Christopher Marlowe, came to mind (although the eye-scar becomes a tad gruesome reference). Other than that, I'd have picked a Shakespearean character... but none really stood out, and Kit/Cat was just too irresistible to me. O___o
He came fully dressed (well, without his boots), in shirt, trousers and stockings. Just an easy pull took off the bubble-wrap protecting his head. On top of him were his extra beast style hands, his tail, tail magnet, boots, birdie-brooch, card with official number for the doll, and extra outfit I purchased.
