Species Guide: Thimblets

Thimblets are a closed species belonging to Midveil!
You cannot make your own without a MYO slot.

Household Thimblets

Household Thimblets are the most common type of thimblet living in Midveil! They can be quite diverse! They are born when a beloved object is forgotten, and the memories and emotions woven into the fabric take on new life as a thimblet! For example, a rain poncho lost by a small child may be reborn into a carefree thimblet who loves splashing in puddles!

Hoarder Thimblets

Hoarder Thimblets on the other hand, are born from a mish mash of different fabrics. They're created from scraps taken from here and there. Hoarders tend to have rather eclectic and erratic personalities! They can collect a variety of fabrics upon their bodies, and are capable of manipulating most of them as limbs!

Kigu Thimblets

Kigu Thimblets are extremely fun loving little Midveilers! They are born from costumes, kigurumis, etc! This is the smallest subspecies of thimblet! They have much shorter legs, and their bodies can be quite unique thanks to their origin scrap!

Ghost Thimblets

Ghost Thimblets are quite different! While average thimblet species are born from the remnants of human emotions... Ghosts are the reincarnation of actual humans who passed away, and could not move onto the next world. Their souls latch onto a beloved object of theirs, and are reborn into Midveil as thimblets. Ghosts are the largest of all subspecies, and have large claws.

What subspecies is my origin scrap?

Household Thimblets are constructed out of a singular "scrap".

  • Examples include sweaters, tops, pants, coats, etc.

Hoarder Thimblets are constructed out of at least three seperate fabric scraps.

  • Examples include patchwork clothing, layered clothing, quilts etc.

Kigurumi Thimblets are born from costumes or stuffed animals.

  • Examples include costumes, uniforms, plush animals, dolls, etc.

Ghost Thimblets are born from a human soul becoming trapped in it's "scrap".

  • They can take traits from any subspecies but usually reflect the cause of death.

Can my household thimblet have a hood/pockets/etc?

Yes! As long as it's part of your origin scrap, you can give your thimblet a working hood, pockets, etc!

Can my thimblet wear accessories? Can I remove my thimblets accessories?

Your thimblet can wear accessories, so long as it's clear that they are removable, and not fixed to the body! You can add bows, hats, etc! Small accessories are okay, but as thimblets are made of clothes and fabric, they wouldn't be wearing entire outfits! In addition, accessories are free to remove whenever!

Can I give my thimblet claws?

Kigu thimblets may have small felt claws, if their origin scrap contains claws! These claws are still soft and are made of fabric. Ghosts are an exception as they have larger fabric claws!

Can my kigu thimblet have (tail/ear/horn)?

Kigu thimblets are special in that their horns, ears, and tail can mimic that of their origin scrap. They don't have to use the established thimblet traits and can adopt traits closer to their origin scraps. For example, a lion kigu thimblet may have lion shaped ears and a mane! Remember that while the traits can be special, the overall anatomy of the thimblet must remain the same and still resemble thimblets!

Can thimblets have button or embroidered eyes? Can they have heterochromia?

Yes to both!

What mutations can my Thimblet have?

Some mutations, such as wings, can be applied to a Thimblet. To find out what mutations are applicable to Thimblets, you can look up the mutation item in the Item Catalogue!

Thimblets can also visit Stick N Poke and roll for a curse mutation, pet, or even a Ghost token! You can check out the Stick N Poke Guide for more information on each curse!

Can my thimblet have a different body type (skinny, fat, tall, short)?

Yes, as long as the overall anatomy is similar to that of a thimblet, it can be as fat as you want or more on the slender side! The height cannot vary drastically, but there can be short thimblets and tall thimblets just like humans!

Do kigu thimblets have to have hoods? Do the hoods always have to be up?

No to both! Kigu thimblets that are designed after stuffed animal/ plushie scrap do not have to have hoods at all. A kigu that has a hood, does not have to have its hood up at all times either!

Can Thimblets be born of non-cotton/fiber/etc based clothing such as furs or leather?

Of course! Polyester, leather, fur, canvas, cotton, silk, plastic, etc is all fair game if it was used to create a fabric/clothing!

How do I redesign my thimblet?

If you'd like to redesign your Thimblet, you'll need to purchase a redesign item applicable to the part you'd like to redesign. You can purchase them at Makeshift's Bazaar!

Can I revert a thimblet to its previous redesign?

After your redesign has been approved and submitted to the masterlist, we will catalogue it's previous design. The masterlist will only ever catalogue the original design and its most recent redesign. If you obtain a Midveiler in a trade and prefer its previous iteration, you can choose to revert to its original design for free.

However, this does not apply if the design you would like to revert to is not listed in the design catalogue. This could be because the user opted out, or the previous design included specialized exclusive mutations that were cured. If this is the case, you will need to re-roll said mutations to restore the design to its original form. Please keep this in mind when redesigning a specialized Midveiler!
