April's Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls

So, Soom started this line of fairies that were Tiny-Sized (~27cm). They were lovely, of course, but being Soom, pretty pricey. I was into the larger-sized dolls anyway, so I tried to ignore them. That was hard to do, of course. I looked (big mistake), but of course, I was thinking, "maybe if they had a male fairy." And of course, they made Auber, their first male in the line.

He has grey skin and black outfit and wings, and a pale wig... so that was much to my liking. I was 'Soom-ed' as they say...

He is named after Taranis, the Celtic god of Thunder. Short name: Taran (a bit after the Lloyd Alexander book/fictional character).
