Today is a special day to me. It’s my son’s Arnaud birthday. And not deliberately, it’s the day I can unveil a new prototype of mine : Nexeven.
Everyone saw the movie Blade Runner. But not everyone saw it the same way.
The Replicants, synthetic human beings, in the movie, are better than humans. They have more capacities, are stronger, faster, smarter BUT they cannot show their feelings as a real human being would, no matter
if they have some or not and they don’t live for long. Though, they are more sensitive than human beings, and so very moving… Remember the “Tears in the Rain” scene. An autistic person doesn’t die, one day he just decides to switch light off and to leave.
EVERYONE having an autistic person in his relatives or close friends SAW Replicants as autistic persons.
Everyone. So did I.
Not only son Arnaud is autistic in the closest circle of my life; but also one of my very best friend is. I will not cite her name for it’s no one’s business to know or not “what” she is, cause the only thing she is in my opinion, is GRAND. A while ago, I announced on Facebook that after having gladly fulfilled everyone’s desire about new prototypes; I was going to sculpt something just to please me, to let it flow as it comes, to NOT restrain myself even if it leads to an unsellable doll.
I want to thank this very friend of mine for her support during this journey. She was the only one to know what I was doing and why. So, just to her ” Thank you from the core of my being. I love you more than you will ever know. ❤ ” She’s been there every step and encouraged me, TRUSTED to express that very intimate feeling of mine, and this need to show what autistic persons really ARE : GRAND people.
Since this, I showed Nexeven to a very few friends and relatives when she’s been done. EVERYONE remained MUTE. It never happened to me before to get NO reaction. Whatever this silence means, I must say that it doesn’t matter. Nexeven was a doll I had to sculpt, and she is what she was meant to be if you take my meaning ^^
It was a risky job. It might end up in an epic failure. She might have never been in resin. I knew that.
But last night I showed Nexeven to a dearest friend. And I am extremely proud, glad, amazed, excited and most of all STIRRED to announce that Nexeven will be produced and sold through JPOPDOLLS by my Grace.
Now, here is the story of Nexeven.
Nexeven is the new generation of replicant, she is a Nexus Generation 7. She has all the feelings mankind lost on the corner of centuries of evolution which explains her little frightened and surprised expression looking at those whom created her. Her skull is entirely sculpted and a beetle (egyptian symbol of immortality) is on her forehead. Because Nexeven is more spirited and smart than any human being; also because she is immortal.
Nexeven is a perfect synthetic autistic person and she will never die. She will cross the Time and Ages without getting old, as the witness of what we lost, what we loose and what we try to get back in our nature.
Nexeven will walk this path on her high heel feet with her magnetic platform soles which will be in translucent blue resin; because she walks only into light.
Nexeven has double elf’s ears.. well… Because I don’t hear well so I wanted her to hear better than everyone. Her ears are like mine pierced and some jewels can be easily put.
She is a slim MSD, about 38cm tall. She is thin and muscular. This is the most detailed prototype I’ve ever done. Her back is very arched to increase her grace and creature attitude.
Also I worked a lot on her skull because it’s all sculpted, but as you can see on the photos with JPOP’s wigs, when she wears a wig, all the skull design is then invisible.
So I needed to add sculptures on a skull which could fit into a regular wig size. I succeeded ^^ her wig size is 5/6.
I will accept every comment and feedback about her. Good and bad ones. Nothing can make me regret to have done this very bizarre doll and her very unusual features because she is a part of my deepest core and represents my son’s difference which makes him flawless.
