To be honest I'm not sure if any doll busts out there are silicone. My wersaze bust will shrink any vinyl it touches for a long period of time, which makes me think it's acetone based and is not stable/slowly gassing out over time, hence TPE.
Then again iirc you can't make TPE without some industrial type factory setup... unlike silicone which you can make molds of and pour yourself.

I see, everyone kept saying silicone, so I assumed.

That might be true, but you don't need anything special to melt down and re-cast some already-made TPE.

You guys wanna see some gore?

Azone Kanojo was produced early 2012. Mine has been in her default costume for nearly all of that time. So this is what 7 years in all black Azone clothing does. Actually amazing considering what some clothes do in a few hours, so it's a testament to Azone quality.

This body is very old, and is a bit floppy in all the joints. It's been relegated to black clothing duties. Instead of fretting over a body being stained, I just transfer the head to this body. Sort of like a designated shitting street, but with dark colours instead of migrants.

What is it that actually upsets you? Their appearance? Having a pair of beady little eyes staring at you from across the room? The doll not being where you left it when you went to bed? The blood on the walls? The corpses that occasionally show up in your house in varying states of dismemberment? Those are just normal aspects of doll ownership; if you're not ready for those then perhaps you are correct in this not being the hobby for you.

Owning one of these dolls is 50% talking to them when you think nobody is within earshot and 50% being awkward over changing her underthings.

Embarrassing story, but I bought my first girl around when I was 18 and had been working for a while to save up some money to buy one of my own. For two years until I joined the army I kept my girl in my room under the paper thin pretense that she was my mother's we had agreed to keep it in my room. I look back now and see that no one believed this inane and stupid lie. I realize that everyone knew it was mine and no one gave a fuck. After a year or two in the military I bought another girl and kept her in my room and found that no one gave a fuck, even during room inspections. No on cared. Even when I took my girls outside like in this picture, random people didn't give a fuck. The most reaction I got from another soldier during this photo shoot was for the soldier to raise an eyebrow and look for somewhere else to sit and drink in peace.

If I've learned anything in this life, it's how little fucks people will give about whatever someone else is doing out in public. You might get a comment here and there, but 99% of the population is busy with their own things... and a few might even ask you where you got whatever weird shit you're wearing or carrying. If people hassle you for it in your personal life, just find better people. The ones that matter will support whatever harmless weird shit makes you happy.

From what I've heard from people who've had a rough time in the military, some people just need ways to cope with the shit they put up with, both in life and on base or deployment. Suicide is a real problem in the military. That guy might have just been thinking, "whatever floats your boat man, as long as it saves you".

And of course on the flipside there's the camaraderie and you might have just earned a permanent nickname instead.
I guess be glad it was the former.

Do you offer commissions? Ever since t*mblr died finding artists who are open to drawing a doll (and are good at it) is difficult. Say what you will about the place, but the freelance artist community was legitimately great.

>>20571359

I have to go further than that since I often sit my dolls on my lap or lean them on my chest I have to shower and put on a full set of clean clothes if I'm changing from car hobby to doll hobby.
>>
>>20571445
Don't get it wrong. I have no real issues with the wig, just thought it was supposed to be a traditional himecut one. Which I'm a big fan of. Also, long black hair is great, that fetish is totally justified.
>>
>>20571476
>traditional himecut

As stated I am not very knowledgeable on hair styles, as far as I was aware the flat fringe and horizontally cut sidelocks ranging somewhere between ear and shoulder length with longer hair across the back is what constituted a hime cut. There's obviously a wide range of variation from both stylistic decisions and the hair type of the individual girl or woman wearing it, but I'm not aware of any other broad requisite for the style.

Again, not an expert. Just a fetishist.

It does seem strange that artists do not draw dolls more often. For me, they are great subjects. You can draw them in realtime without making someone sit for an hour. There are also a lot of beautiful dolls out there.

Doubt it. Even squiggles are appreciated if it's of someone special. Some of my favourite artwork is a couple sketches and an oil painting made by a young girl I know, of the OCs my dolls make corporeal. She might be a great artist one day.

>It does seem strange that artists do not draw dolls more often.

A majority of the knock-backs I've had (5-6) seem to be because the artist is made uncomfortable by dolls, so pediophobia is at fault. The remainder are because the artist is afraid of a disgusting lolicon pervert.

This is great. Who is the artist? Searching by the signature (Kait Zetta?) doesn't yield any usable results.

>>20571978

Okay listen - for all but the most vapid of people, it's not objective quality of art that counts. It's the fact that you rendered, in art, something the recipient holds dear. A sketch that embodies my Kaa-chan, as inexperienced as the artist may be, is worth many times more to me than a professional's piece of a sunset in a place I've never been to.

So no need to apologise! Thanks for choosing to draw my little lady.

Posting your art for feedback is the best way to improve, so don't be afraid to share, anon. This is very cute, and more than that, it's very kind of you to take your time to draw art of someone's doll, too.
People on 4chan can be brutally honest, and sometimes it hard to swallow, but it's an honest sort of critique (unless they're obviously trolling.) The way I take it is, if someone took the time out of their day to reply to something I've posted with a pointer to improve, it's worth it to consider what they have to say. And so to you, I say to keep drawing! Again and again, practice whatever parts you hate most. Hands, figures, poses, every little bit, even if it's the same thing in different poses, is building the foundation for you to get to where you feel you want to be. Good luck!

Kaede still needs a wig and shoes, but I'm already in love with her.

Is it new or just new to you? If the former then maybe contact Volks if you bought it directly from them, alternatively put a piece of tape on the peg to create more friction. If the body is used then check if the socket has cracked, the first year or two of DDS/DD3 had issues where this could happen.
>>

New from Volks and only a few days in use, 99% of which has been spent sitting down on a shelf. I'm going to contact Volks about it, the entire leg is loose from the hip joint slipping off to a floppy knee. Thanks, anon.

That doll is probably over 12 years old now. Vinyl will discolour over time. It can be mitigated with correct care, but much like with humans, aging is ultimately unavoidable. So the head has discoloured at a different rate to the body, likely due to different lengths of time exposed to sunlight, and different material compositions.

It's normal and to be expected. Most of us here are newer owners and twitter photographers would avoid using an old, yellowed doll, so we don't get exposed to the reality of being in the hobby for a long time.

You then ask yourself what you value - the doll itself as an object you treasure, or the character you've laid over it, with the doll just being the means to make it corporeal. Then you either keep an old, yellowed doll or replicate your character onto a newer body.

The camera angle and lighting are bad, that's her original body she came with and she is a DD Yumi whom I've loved for years and was my first girl and is the queen of the entire group lol.

I dont know why but sometimes her face looks more yellow than it really is. Shes always been around non smoke homes. I've been thinking about cleaning her head up a little bit but without hurting the original faceup. But yea, she is an older girl. Yumi was released in 2006. I have a special attachment to her for many reasons. So yellow or not I'll always love her. But if any anons know any safe ways to brighten her up a little, I'm interested.

She is on what's supposed to be matching skin new DDDy body. I dont see a difference only in the brightest of lighting tho. But I still think she looks fantastic

How long does it generally take to hear back from Volks? My new doll's entire skeleton seems loose, her legs keep falling off, the peg fell out of her hip joint. I've barely touched her and I feel like she's falling apart. She's not my first doll, I'm not manhandling her when I change her clothes or anything... are Dollfies supposed to be this loose-jointed? Is there anything I can do?

Thanks, anons. If Volks doesn't want to help out I'll try the glue thing. This is the new DD3-f skeleton for anyone curious, and honestly, it's made me reconsider getting a second Dollfie.

>>20590748

I've always wanted to see better photos of that doll, thanks for sharing!

>>20598238
Yuzu is so cute...
>>
>>20604544
Before trying glue, try taking her apart completely and tightening all the screws.

Volks' new thing with the f3 seems to be to leave them loose. So you can "decide for yourself" on how tight you want the joints.

Comes across as lazy to me, but my f3 MDD was loose like that too and I had to tighten all of the screws on the frame and then reassemble. Then it was fine.
>>
>>20604614
Thanks anon... I notice there are what look to be tiny bolts in here, I take it I can leave those in place? I can't find a screw for the leg joint, just a peg- any tips for that? And regarding the knees, i'd be worried to take them apart as they seem pretty... wedged in there. Should I leave them as-is?

I appreciate it.

(By "this isn't my first doll," I meant "I'm familiar with handling fragile fashion dolls," -- I admit this is my first Dollfie, and it's a bit of an adjustment from something that's strung.)
>>
>>20604737
Yeah, the bolts should be fine. I don't know if you've been able to find this link, but this is actually pretty handy. I don't know how much help I can be since I just have the MDD f3.

http://www.dollfiedream.tokyo/dd_en/support/ddf3/

When in doubt on wedging, warm it up a bit with a hair dryer like it says. It's intimidating to feel like you're pulling a part too hard or such, but you get used to it. The vinyl is pretty durable. I had to remove the knee from the thigh on mine like 4-5 times, it became less scary after a bit.

Sorry for all the questions, I'm back again.

I've noticed that in the videos I've watched on doll dis/assembly, the body fits very close to the skeleton. On my doll, I there is a ton of room between the body and the skeleton, literal inches of space. Is that a function of the new DDIII-f skeleton, or did something go wrong on my end?

Thanks for all your help anons, I appreciate it. Please enjoy a cute doll for your trouble.

It actually is a 60mm holga lens. It's a pain in the ass to focus and is way narrower than what I usually use given the amount of vignetting, but I'm having a lot of fun with it.
>>
>>20605135
can you post pics of what's troubling you? Particularly the knees that you're having issues with and the areas with large skeleton-frame gapping (which may or may not be a problem, the f3 frame is looks a bit smaller/less bulky in some areas compared to the old one)

Thank you anon. It's honestly pretty embarrassing, it's just the joint where the legs attach, but it's given me a headache since the day I unboxed her. I took her out, and a leg fell off. I put a leg back on, and the next move I make, one or both of them pop off.

Since this started I've broken this entire doll down, tightened screws, and put her back together again, but this one part of the body seems to be impossible to work around. I'm thinking of going to the hardware store to find a similarly-sized dowel tomorrow to trim down- it's worth a shot, right?

The skeleton moves around inside of the body a lot too. it's been hard to line the pieces in the torso and waist up. I feel like I've gotten the legs on a few times now, but they just come right off again.
>>
>>20607758
I just checked on my Jeanne who's also a DDf3 and yeah this is much more annoying now than on the old DD3 body. I had to guide the foot with the peg in first, then while holding that firmly in place press the other foot in. And when they both seemed to kinda be on I pushed hard on both sides of the legs at the same time. Then and only then would both feet stay on.
>>
>>20607758
>>20607799
Hmm. I don't have this particular body (or an f3) but I've read that a lot pf people are having issues with the hips because the peg is awkwardly floating in the middle. Apparently if you fit it together properly and push the legs together it should make/you should feel a noticeable click when it locks in place and it should become stable. You can read about someone having a similar issue here, if it helps

>>20607870
It takes a weight off my shoulders that I'm not the only one with this issue. I'm still having trouble getting them both to stay on, and at this point if Volks will work with me I might just see if I can send this body back for an older-style DD3 or something. The hip joint "floating" is literally a nightmare, and the thought of never being able to pose my doll without the risk of spending hours to put the legs back on makes any extra posing ability completely moot.

>>20607909
Is there a guide around to put a DD head onto an Obitsu body? It's worth a shot for the future either way.

And I've a question for everyone, too.

What got you into this hobby, anons? I never thought I'd get into them whatsoever, but something about the beauty and the charm I found in the photography drew me in, and now I cant imagine my life without them. I know it's a niche sort of thing and a lot of people misunderstand it, but I really do think a lot of artistry goes into everyone's dolls and how they present them, in addition to the actual craftsmanship of the modeling and outfit design and everything else, too. It's a wonderful creative outlet for me... and everything being super cute is a bonus.

What about you?

No judgement there, I figure any reason's a valid reason to enter a new hobby if it makes you happy.

And don't sell yourself short, either. I thought to myself a lot of things about this hobby before I got sucked into it myself. That it's too much attention to detail for me to maintain my dolls, or that the amount of work to get a perfect photo is impossible without a gorillion dollars in gear. I'm still learning a lot and I'm the most basic bitch photographer out there, but I'm having fun doing it, and doll upkeep isn't nearly as troublesome as it seemed at first. It's calming to focus on brushing out their hair or changing clothes.

You'll develop skills and a style as you go along and practice more. I'm getting there, too. I hope I can see your doll one day, if you ever decide to get one.

(The pricetag is the big killer for me, I started with Azone Pure Neemos since they're similarly adorable but smaller and cheaper by far. But it's not an impossible goal to save up for a Dollfie/Smartdoll/etc, it just takes time. Good luck!)

Rozen Maiden got me. I just got my first doll this year, but I've been fascinated with them since that anime came out. Oddly enough, I in no way dress my girl in the lolita style from that show though.

Oh she's super cute! I love her. My girl is the "adorable chemotherapy patient from above. >>20572191

Her wig's here now, but I'm dealing with a body issue so no new photos yet.

>>20639087
I just genuinely find it a colossal waste, personally. These dolls cost a small fortune and throwing that away on a wank just isn't worth it for me. People are free to do what they want, I just don't understand.

It started when I saw a figurine I could play with that was more poseable than a nendoroid or figma, which also had a cute face.

Now I have 5 of them and an ever-increasing collection of clothes, parts and accessories. After my cats they're the closest thing to children a weirdo like me's ever gonna have unless I somehow stumble over a /jp/sie who is also a biological female - girls(male) don't count.

Can you guys help someone out who is confused about what all of this even is? I'm not new to the anime like dolls but whats the appeal? What does the hobby even encompass? You dress up the dolls and take care of them and stuff? Is it a little bit sexual too? Can anyone give me a rundown
>>
>>20646887
>You dress up the dolls and take care of them and stuff?
That's a big part I guess, there's also photography and stuff. They're just really nice dolls, kind of a similar appeal to anime figures and the like but bigger, better posing, more customization, etc.
>Is it a little bit sexual too?
Not for a lot of people but there are people like that too. I'd assume not unless they make it otherwise obvious.
>>
>>20646887
>sexual

Some of us play around with light to mild eroticism and that is fine if not to everyone's taste. But much more than that treads on thin ice, even around here.

To explain using an example, the doll fuckers are to us, what the cloppers are to the Brony fandom. Most Bronies are a bit eccentric maybe but ultimately harmless people. I know a couple and they are genuinely decent guys/girls(yes). They watch and enjoy a children's show, I play with dolls - we have a mutual understanding not to disrespect each other's interests, and we all get along well.

But then there's the overtly sexualised aspect of both hobbies that do show up from time to time. Understand it's not the norm and generally not accepted outside of the niche circles it originates in.

I can't have children of my own so my dolls are surrogates. I play dress ups and take pictures, but in my case I also talk to them - they listen to me bitching about customers at work a lot... I also give them personalities, backgrounds, and think up stories of their day-to-day life. Each one has a unique personality, they've all borrowed bits of mine, both good and bad.

You get a lot more out of this hobby if you're introverted, and can easily daydream.

So many cute dolls so hard to restrain myself

Gentlemen, my first ever doll finally arrived after 3 long month of shipping! And as I promised I post photo of my girl here!
It was weird at first to see doll not on the photo but before your very eyes.
I already got some clothes for her but I'm not too sure if they match well... That outfit might looked better in my mind when I was buying parts for it.. Of course I have her default clothes but I don't want to open them yet
I'm also not sure if I put wig right, it was pretty hard to get it on her but somehow I managed to put it when I tried from behind the head. I also bought a wig cap but It didn't arrived yet. I'm a little worried if this dark wig will leave stains fast without it.
Anyway I'm really happy right now and I look forward to all the time I will spend with my girl from now on!!!

Sorry for this weird light and overall photo quality, this is what I currently could afford.

Wigs, especially properly sized, can be difficult at first to put on. And yes, you were perfectly fine putting it on from behind. I do that more often then not as well. My tip is, with her in your lap facing away from you, reach your fingers into the wig cap and stretch it a little and then begin to put the front very far forward on her head, like around her forehead and eyebrows. Then begin pulling the wig back and down at the same time. There's kind of a sweet spot when it slips on. Then you just need to turn her around and straighten it out.
- I hope that makes sense, I'm sorry I'm not that great at explaining it better.

Also, she looks lovely, and I love the little bunny shirt, but her hair desperately needs to be brushed. I suggest using those brushes with the little nobs on the end so the hair doesn't get caught on the bristles.

Cute girl and i see you're into casual clothings, i think even if it doesnt go perfectly it at least tells a lot about the owner

Thanks for the tips!
>she looks lovely, and I love the little bunny shirt
Thanks! I choose it because her name always reminds me of rabbit (Uzuki->Usagi)

Also there was one thing that got me worried when I opened box. Picture related. There was something like white paint mark on my girls thigh and feet. It comes of when wipe it and I removed majority of it (some are really hard to wipe and I don't want to use too much force) so it's not a big problem but still got me bit worried. Is this normal for new doll?

>>20649787
I also got her a plain white dollish dress. Maybe I will dress her in it later today.

That... I haven't seen that before. Do you have a magic eraser? The color of the skin should be innate throughout the mold, so I would suspect a *little* more elbow grease might take it off without much if any consequence, however I'm no expert so maybe wait until some other anon chimes in.
>>
>>20649855
>>20649859
Not normal. First pic gives me the impression that this doll sat nearby while the owner painted other stuff. Except the heel pic has me stumped. I can't think of a scenario that would result in that unless they got it really dirty/sticky/messy and they used something like talcum powder or baking soda to help transfer the stains off. Yes stains. You don't need to put any thought into it.

The fact that it's not on the face or in the hair is a good thing. head was probably protected, or the body is just a trashier spare the owner gave you instead.

Anywho, except from the face don't be afraid of using solvents. It's just bare vinyl.
>>
>>20649934
MEs are micro abrasive, using one might change the finish
>>
>>20649859
>>20649855
Looks like it might just be residue from the mold release agent or something that didn't get cleaned properly during manufacture. Try cleaning it off with warm soapy water and a sponge. Don't be afraid to use a little force, vinyl is pretty tough stuff.

just leave it alone then. How often are you going to have her sitting in front of you/on a shelf with this one expose heel in your direction? Are you a foot fetishist? -Not that there anything wrong with that, I personally like some feet, but only in stockings and pantyhose - but other than that it's no longer an issue

>>20649947
I realize it's a micro abrasive, but given the situation it seemed like there was only about three choices
1. Leave it alone and have a blemish forever
2. Attempt to scrub it of with as little abrasive power as necessary (ie a ME) and still have a slight blemish in the fact that it no longer had the manufacturer finish
3.Chemicals. Alone effectiveness not guaranteed and would still remove the manufacturer finish.

You are going to take many bad photos of her, but don’t worry look at them and try and fix what you don’t like and in time you will have cute photos of her.

That said she is cute in these photos you posted.

Hey everyone. I’ve been a long time lurker on these these threads and been meaning to ask a few questions regarding custom clothes and such, but felt it would be better to first provide some content and introduce my girls. So here are my 3 of my girls: Anya to the left, Emilia on the right, and Maki in the center.
Emilia also has a stand, but it broke a few days ago and I’m still trying to fix it, so I took this picture and then made her sit down for safety reasons.
I also have an Azone Jubei and Rem, and while I do love them both, specially Jubei since she was my very first doll, I have to admit I got them second hand off Mada as some sort of introduction to the hobby and to figure out how I could customize my own girl.
Please excuse my poor photography skills, all I had was my phone and lighting could be much better, I think.
But anyway! Hope you like how my girls look and feedback is greatly appreciated.
Side note: Emilia’s hair is a nightmare to fix! But I think she’s beautiful anyway.

Crazy Eyes is here, folks. I'll post photos in a minute, but I need you guys to know that the story just gets deeper with her. She came to me in a Wreck It Ralph box covered in clear packing tape, tied down to a big piece of cardboard by three different ribbons, with a bag on her head and wearing nothing but a bath robe. There was a paper parasol in the box for some reason, along with what I'm assuming are her original eyes and wig. The only hands she possesses are frozen into fists.

Her crazy metallic eyes were taped into her face with scotch tape.

I was going to name her Sophie, but I'm also tempted to name her Eris after the goddess of chaos, because everything about her is chaotic. What do you think?

Welcome anon. Shimamu is a good choice. I fancy her myself but can't get tided over to get one.

You can try leaving it out in the sun for a bit and see if it pops out. Vinyl regains its shape in my experience.

I'm thinking about getting her an MDD body in the future. She's on a DDS body right now, but I feel like she'd look better on a shorter doll with that... face. Can anyone tell me about Dollfie Dream Pretty, as well? I saw one, but I don't know what the difference is.

I'm also still undecided if I prefer her "let me speak to a manager" wig over the "I live in the woods feasting on bones" one that she came with, but overall I'm really happy with how nicely she cleaned up... relatively speaking. I did give her second set of eyes a go, too, but it's just not the same.

I'm glad I can share her with all of you. It's been a wild ride.

(Also, I'm thinking of getting a Smart Doll next. How do their bodies compare, generally? Can DD clothes fit SmD, or would I need DDdy or something? I've seen that basically none of the parts are interchangeable, but that's okay, I'm mostly just worried about outfits. Thanks, anons.)

>>
>>20655722
Just some advice, if you want your girls to stand out you need to find some non-volks clothes.
>>
>>20656511
I think they should get whatever ever clothes they like the best. And if they like Volks then that’s fine.
>>
>>20656015
Thanks! I can take a picture of all my keychain wall if you’d like. I got a few more that I recently placed on my board.
And I do like casual clothes, but that hoodie in particular I find to be very adorable.
>>20656511
Appreciate the advice. I want to start doing so when I figure out a few things about custom clothes and such. Both Emilia and Anastasia tend to wear their default clothes most of the time since I find both dresses quite beautiful, but I agree I’d like them to have some more unique options. Curiosly, Maki is wearing a mix of Azone and Volks stuff, and she’s actually the one I’m more interested in getting someone to make some fancy idol stuff for.
>>20656589
I won’t deny that I got most of my stuff directly from Volks because I felt it was a “safer” choice, if that makes any sense. Also got somewhat of a bad experience from a set I got from Cool-Cat that had some very noticeable quality issues like tearing and fabric de-coloration out of the box. Thankfully, the store was kind enough to refund me after I made a complaint with picture of the items. They also sent me a gift, which regretfully I don’t use because it turned out to be a set of black lingerie that, while very pretty, I don’t want to make my girls wear out of fear of staining.
>>
>>20656718
"safer choice" - there's absolutely nothing wrong with dressing your girls in stuff you know will fit them. Don't ever be afraid of just having licensed clothing
>>
>>20656801
Indeed! And also if you like it that’s all the more reason to buy from Volks!
>>
>>20655165
It's more the total package, honesty. The combination of that silly face with those crazy eyes created a doll where every time I see her, I laugh. She's really grown on me.
>>
>>20654059
I fucking love her already, never change these eyes.
