"You cannot pass nor fail at existence. All strange and terrible creatures are welcome to exist... It is their success that concerns me."
Sideshow presents the Muse of Bone: Atelier Cryptus Doll, one of three all-new additions to our original Court of the Dead collection. Atelier Cryptus is the debut line of ball-jointed dolls offered by S Doll!
From deep within the Realm of True Spirit, the Muse of Bone - known as Philomena - and her sisters, the Muse of Flesh and the Muse of Spirit, emerged to provide hope and guidance to a fledgling Death, long before he built the Underworld and its capitol city of Illverness.
A righteous influencer at heart, the Muse of Bone expresses a cool sense of power and purpose. She is the administrator of her sisterhood and the adjudicator of their actions (whether her sisters wish to abide by this or not!). From her intricately sculpted head, featuring sharp cheekbones and high brows, to her knee-high boots adorned with minute skulls and the fierce points of her headdress, Philomena's appearance of strength is matched only by her beauty.
"It was very important that her garments be very rigid and architectural, but still exude feminine elegance and strength," said Esther Skandunas, Costume Fabrication Artist. "We chose fabrics that maintain their shape well to compliment her bone structure, ribs, and spine."
The Muse of Bone stands 16" tall; a decorative rib-cage enhances her waist, leading into the acute pleats of her skirt, while an ornamental spinal column augments her back. Evoking an otherworldly sense of ancient erudition, Philomena's eyes glow with an ethereal prudence.
A highly pose-able, epic-fantasy character, this resin ball-jointed doll features articulation at her ankles, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, waist, shoulders, and neck. A back head plate, dual-jointed neck, custom eye plug-ins, and magnetic hand attachments make for an extremely customizable figure.
Celebrate your allegiance to the Alltaker's virtuous purpose with the Muse of Bone. There is no better way to declare loyalty to Dark Sheperd's rebellion than with the sisterhood that helped to pave his path: The Underworld Muses.

Had a couple of mishaps with this beauty, but Sideshow rectified immediately. Her outfit is even more amazing in person. I have to admit that I'm a little nervous handling her because some of her parts seem so delicate. My only complaint is I wish Sideshow had offered a stand to buy as well. I was able to purchase one from a doll shop I use regularly and I hope it works well with her. Absolutely beautiful BJD!
