Felix Considerations

So I talked to Maria about how I could make Felix seem less like Connor (an old character I used to use Iplehouse Rebecca for), since I still sometimes accidentally call him "Connor".
I decided that I would change small details about him, so that he still was Felix, but a bit less like Connor.



First up is his character/personality.
I decided that he shouldn't be bragging and a show-off. Those traits are Connors, so I thought it would make sense to remove them.
I'm gonna keep having him be a goofball, but I'm gonna twist it a bit and make him more goofy and less tough.
I'm also removing the severe gender dysphoria. It was also a part of Connor. Instead, Felix is pretty content with being transgender.
Also, I think I'll keep the friendship between hiim and Isabelle. I think Felix is a good support for Isabelle, who's a bit more sensitive.

And regarding his fashion style.
This was a thing I wanted to change so badly. His current style was definitely Connor's, so I felt the need to change it.
I considered a lot of different styles, but I think I'm leaning towards Rockabilly (the guy version of course).
I like how it's not that far from his current style, but it's still not the same and I think it fits his new personality very well.
He'll need a new wig too. I think I may commission SophyMolly again someday.

  1. I love that wig and I think it can work for the new style as well, what kind of new wig are you thinking for Felix?

    1. You think so? I was a bit unsure about it. I may still buy a new one in a similar style though, since this one is not in good shape anymore :P
      I was considering a short hair style in vintage style, kinda like this: https://dk.pinterest.com/pin/519673244484786613/

  3. Ah Nikki, they say a change is as good as a holiday, but changing a doll's character is a lot of work!! Still he looks like you have him under control. :)
