So I've seen many of the people I follow doing a tag about what animals their BJDs would be, so I thought I'd join in on the fun. Out of respect for other cultures and beliefs, I'm tagging mine as #BJDsAsAnimals
, though I've also listed the original tag and another alternative tag below. :) Anyways, here goes nothing:
1) Gwen - For my sweet girl, I assigned her one of my favorite creatures on this planet: Nephila clavipes, or more commonly known in my hometown as "banana spiders." They are massive girls, with webs as wide as a meter. The males are tiny in comparison, but that doesn't stop them. A very timid spider species, they won't bite unless you force them to. And their venom? Almost non-existent. But they look scary as hell. XD
2) Theo - For my beloved boy, I picked the Lampropeltis triangulum, or milksnake. Often known for their Batesian mimicry of venomous snakes like corals, milksnakes are actually harmless. Many people either avoid or kill them out of fear, mistaking them for their deadly relatives.
3) Elpis - For my new girl, I choose Acanthurus lineatus, or the lined surgeonfish. Beautifully colored and mostly herbivorous, these fish are actually quite dangerous if they need to be. They have a venomous spine towards the rear of their body that can be used in defense. However, they can usually be found lazily grazing for algae. **The photo I used of Theo's BJD sculpt is Nandoll's photo, as I have not purchased his head yet. Credit for the picture belongs to Nandoll. As for the animal photos, I pulled them off of Wikipedia. Credit to the photographers. Original artwork of Theo and Gwen belongs to me, colored by my husband. :) #bjd #abjd #dollfamilyh #dollfamilyhxiaoxin #dollfamilyhella #nandoll #nandollisaac #bjdpatronus #bjdspiritanimal #legitbjd
