Sometimes a FromSoftware Soulsborne title will feature some sort of “maiden” to aid in leveling up in the game world. That was the Maiden in Black in demons soulsthe doll in bloodborneand Melina in elden ring. Crossovers and comparisons between elden ring and games like bloodborne will happen due to the sheer popularity of FromSoftware’s Souls catalog, and details similar to the doll and Melina (especially since they don’t appear in every game) are being picked up on by fans.
Bosses, designs, changes and more are all valid points of comparison, but lately only one elden ring Fan set out to answer an important question: what would bloodborne‘s Doll look like she’s there elden ring? After all, while the Lovecraftian themes of elden ring are clearly there, they are not as strong as the Victorian ones bloodborne.
Redditor girl_snap_out_of_it wanted to design bloodborne‘s doll as elden ring character, complete with an analysis of fashion in The Lands Between. It should be noted that the Redditor is frankly no expert on the subject, but nonetheless they have written an interesting breakdown of the influences of Catholicism and medieval fashion on The Lands Between, and also explored the divide between “realistic” and “fantasy”. . fashion here. They wove these elements into their design and the end result can be seen below.
With these influences in mind, girl_snap_out_of_it also wrote a little backstory for the doll as if it fully existed in The Lands Between. The Redditor believes that something like the doll could only be made in Leyndell, which is why the general aesthetic of the Leyndell Knights can be seen in the doll’s cloak and dress. There are also Celtic details associated with the earth tree which was incorporated into the design for their association there. The doll retains her facial detail and knotted doll hands, but despite wearing expensive clothes, part of the outfit is old, worn and tied together.
The backstory explains that she would have been kind of a maiden even if she couldn’t use the power of the Finger Maidens, so she offered comfort and help instead. It seems that the puppet in this interpretation would have been bound to the Golden Order if unknowingly enabling their plans. Overall, it’s a pretty fitting backstory, spot-on aesthetics and design, and an otherwise impressive piece elden ring fan art
elden ring is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
