I guess it's hard to capture that condescending look of superiority with doll eyes.
Fufu caught you looking. I guess you really enjoy ashi time.
Pictures a from a few weeks ago before anon helped with her head.
>>20916238I want to put my girl in jeans so bad, but I'm so paranoid about staining...
>>209168293 of my girls are jeans full time, I use the SmD ones and I use white tights. Also one of the jeans are white so that doesn’t count.
Coffee with Kato
>>20900117>>20916817Well glad I helped. Is this your first Obitsu body? I can help with any other issues you have.
>>20917396Thanks. Well, it's my first doll of any kind. Even though I've had her a year my laziness means I don't take as many photos of her as I'd like to and I need to practice more on posing for photos. I'd also like to buy more hands. Oh by the way, is wrists falling out very easily a normal thing?
>>20918145They shouldn't just "fall" out, but the wrist is designed to be easily interchangeable. Typically owners will buy multiple hand types and install the wrist joints into the hands (a heat gun job) so that they can be swapped out in seconds.If you find that only one wrist is loose, wrap a short strip of masking tape around it to bulk the diameter of the pin a little bit. If every wrist is loose, investigate replacing the arm. I've not done that yet so if required I could do a tear down on my spare body and report back.>>20916836>girls>jeans>not understanding the magic of skirtswow what a loser hey everyone look at this guy hahahahaha
>>20920327Skirts and dresses are wonderful but dolls look great in everything!
>>20918145>Oh by the way, is wrists falling out very easily a normal thing?With Azone (Obitsu 50cm based) bodies? Yes. Not by design, but can happen as they're designed to be held only by friction (as opposed to a snap design) Frequent adjustment and posing will promote this as the act usually results in "flaring" the receiving end. Of the ten Azone dolls I've had I think it's only happened on two of their wrists. >>20920327>They shouldn't just "fall" outYou probably got lucky or you handle yours with extreme autism. Take that as a compliment. >wrap a short strip of masking tape around it to bulk the diameter of the pin a little bitThis is a short term solution that will just end up in a crinkled piece of tape that'll need fishing out after a few adjustments. I'd just mix some baking powder and super glue and sand it down until it fits.
>>20920566>you handle yours with extreme autism>Take that as a compliment.Haha thanks, I will. Though I don't mean I've never had a hand just fall out. It's happened. My PB40 girl's arms seem to be looser than the rest, likely because she gets played with the most. They should stay in on their own, and pop out with a slight tug. Less than that, I consider to be a fault (albeit a minor, inconsequential one)>I'd just mix some baking powder and super glue and sand it down until it fits.Never thought of that, I imagine it'd work for a particular wrist that was undersized slightly but if the arm is blown out it might just make the problem worse for all the unglued wrists?>>20920480Jeans give me nightmares. All that strong blue dye. And jeans are often skin tight in various places, too. Just waiting for a chance to sully and destroy. It's like leaving a fair maiden alone surrounded by melanin-enriched friends. Utterly terrifying. Death to all jeans.
>>20920327Girls in jeans kissing.
>>20920679Loved that set. The panty shot was a special treat. Like a delta made of cotton candy
>>20920767That thread just showed up in my feed one day so I saved that one photo since I thought it was kinda cute; paid only passing attention to the others, but I just went and dug it back up and had a look at the rest of the twitter it came from and oh boy am I gonna have a good time.>>20920743>girls in front have jeans>but all the background art has skirtsStop lying to yourself mang you and I both know what's bestAlso who is the artist I would like to know for scientific reasearch reasons.
>>20920919those dresses are absolutely lovely.
>>20920919Cinnamon has jeans in her art. Artist is Sam Logan who does the Sam and Fuzzy webcomic he comes to a local con.
>>20916238Gotta love em' tight asses in shorts.
>>20922123As usual, 4chan just can't auto-rotate.
>>20922155She's cute, but I don't like the look of her arm and leg covers. Why did they pick that material?
>>20922409Honestly, those sleeves look like... garbage bags. I would have much preferred to have the same material as the shorts for the sleeves.Also, screw accuracy because the little black sleeve clips for the arms ten to pop off at the slightest movement. So I put them back in the box for storage.
>>20922155She is super CUTE!
>>20921509nice outfits i bet the gods are pleased
>>20924231What's the best way to get silicone busts ? Praying to find a Peach pie on YJA?
武装ドール I love this girl
>>20925443cute doll with a cute gun
>>20922028Thanks for responding but I still hate jeans>>20922890I doubt it; as that does not seem to be a standard compliant ceremonial garb.Anyway I heard you guys like operators
>>20926695schoolgirls make the best operator
>>20926695>>20926721>>20925443I'm going to assume people are making these accessories themselves, such as the radios, adjustable slings, and what not?Also, jointed hands. Where are those available at? Pretty certain I haven't seen them on the Volks site.
>>20928922Yeah, a huge part of the doll hobby is DIY custom accessories and clothes, so lots of really cool things you see just won't be for sale anywhere, and if they are won't be sold internationally. Find a good proxy and keep an eye on small stores.
>>20920327>>20920566Thanks, they still stay in a by friction but they do get dislodged annoyingly easily. E.g. sometimes depending on the coat just adjusting the angle of the arm makes the sleeve push the wrist out.The next time I'll go to Japan I'll buy a few wrists and hands to go with them. I might buy a couple of internal arms too (or do they slot into the elbow joints?).Azo2's use standard 50cm Obitsu joints I assume?
>>20931721She is on adventures!
My Dollfie Dream made a few face-plants from 3 feet high already. That's what I get for having no doll stand.Still, she got totally unscathed each times. I'm glad to see that this doll worth almost half a month of full time work is pretty damn solid.
>>20931721Okay dude if you want to do it for the experience sure knock yourself out, but if you just want parts parabox.jp is a licensed retailer for Obitsu and has an English page.And yes afaik all joints are the same. It's only the skins that are different. Gotta love interchangeability.
>>20932090Your doll is a dork.
>>20933817It's probably faster for Koreabro to fly in on one of his visits. >>20931721>Azo2's use standard 50cm Obitsu joints I assume?Yup, that's primarily why they stock them. FYI There's a parabox shop in nakano broadway, third floor if you're looking for more compatible stuff.
>>20934046* Yup, that's primarily why they stock them at the Azone store.
>>20936771nice wig but she does look like a slob dressed like that
>>20933817>>20934046Thanks. I might order online then. I'll have to check out the parabox store in Nakano Broadway too. I also haven't checked out Azone's Ikebukuro store.Also what >>20934046 said. Living in Korea means it doesn't cost much to go to Japan, I have at least 1 trip planned this year. I'm just sad that the local doll scene doesn't have much for larger Obitsu bodies. Other types are well catered for
>>20936807I totally disagree, she's cute as heck
>>20936771How cute! It’s like exercise or sleep wear.
>>20936807Nah, she looks really comfy.
Jeanne finally came in today and I couldn't be happier. As a side note, now owning both a dd and a smd it's so interesting how similar, yet so different they are. My smd feels so light and fragile in comparison now. I'm not trying to start anything just noting my personal feelings between the two.
>>20938814Totaly need to see her!
>>20938814After a few hours of assembly, jeanne is finally ready for battle! I find her design and materials to be top notch. Although extremely satisfied, I am slightly disappointed with how hard she is to pose... Her flag is far too heavy for her arms to hold, and her armor restricts her to standing only.
>>20941772>I am slightly disappointedThe disappointment doesn't stop here >her armor restricts her to standing only.Enjoy your doll. You know you bought a doll, right?
>>20941874I'll let the other anon do it, my phone and non existent skills won't do her justice>>20942292>You know you bought a doll, right?I don't know what I was expecting, but I blame all the tacticool dolls I follow
>>20943036No I wanna seeeeeee her.
>>20943036Make a selfie, that doesn't need a skill it good equipment.
>>20941536Here you go.>>20941772Yeah, the armor kinda limiting, but that just means I'll be getting her into more casual clothes soon.
>>20944312Wow she's a Mary Sue.
>>20941772It wasn't like pic related could hold the sword either.
>>20924231Readjusting the eyes just for the sake of the pose is commendable.Also, Daaaaaang…….
>>20944312Oh wow she is super cute. And you took a fine picture of her! I am glad I kept asking for one. Shame someone else still hasn’t posted some cute girls riding sharks.
Does anyone know if someone has been brave or stupid enough to take Jeanne's braid down(and preferably has pics)? I'm working on making her 3rd ascension outfit(pic related) and I'd like to take her hair down for it, but not if I couldn't put it back into a ponytail for other outfits. I might be over thinking things though.
>>20948945Just buy a blond wig
>>20944312What base head does she have? Her eyes seem more deeper
>>20948945Never undo a wig.
Has anyone ever seen a full sized doll with those closed "smiling" style eyes? I've seen a few examples of the right hand side, generally in a realistic style, but I'm wondering if anyone's made something bigger or with more facial definition than a nendoroid with closed eyes.
>>20948945Just buy another wig without the braid.
>>20948959>>20949060>>20949592So consensus is to get another wig. I was definitely overthinking it because that didn't even cross my mind somehow.>>20949041In person they don't seem much deeper than most other heads. As for base I'm not sure, on the preorder page it just says original head so I have no idea which head it could be. Maybe another more experienced anon might know
>>20949554Cute and risky.
>>20949653yeah black socks? wtf?
>>20949656Living life on the edge desu.
>>20949656Maybe she wants to be blacked?
If the new Nendoroid Dolls belong here, anyone is exited for this line?I really want that Alice.
>>20953804maybe jeanne alter but the plastic hairs turn me off
I need a replacement 1/6 Azone Pure Neemo hairband. Where can I get one?
Does anybody know where I can find what won all the voting for the Volks Dollfie anniversary stuff? All I can find on their site is the last rounds of voting, but no results, or is this one of those "we'll announce as we release" kind of things?
>>20956366I don't think they've announced anything yet, I hope for an Arle re-release though
>>20958284>Arle re-releaseI would die and go to heaven.
>>20958284Why Arle? She's just a DDH-04.......
Bookworm in natural habitat.
>>20962097She's adorable, but I also feel like her expression is one of "Well, at least you tried."
>>20937550>I have at least 1 trip planned this yearFunny, I assumed your proximity would take you there more than once a year. At least that's what I would do. > I also haven't checked out Azone's Ikebukuro storeAny expectations on this? I've been to three others, save the factory shop and didn't find them to be dramatically different from each other aside from how they arranged the 1/3 display cases. However if it is I'd love to hear about it.
>>20961703Might have the same smile but the head shape and eye size is completely different.
>>20963907>Funny, I assumed your proximity would take you there more than once a year. I would but I don't choose my holidays. Summer break = too hot. 5 day holidays = flights that are 3-4x more expensive since everyone else wants out too.I am only 40 minutes away from an international airport so I could do weekends. But $250ish for flights and and accommodation for only one full day in Japan is kind of expensive.>>At least that's what I would do.Honestly the biggest difference as a foreigner living here is that Japan offers is just being immersed in Japan, buy niche things like Obitsu parts, the ability to drown in otaku areas, spend my money on random time limited events, and access to high quality Japanese food. Oh and clean air lately (thanks China).Korea has otaku markets better than anything in the West, a reasonable doujin scene (but no R18 stuff since Korea bans porn, but I have met Anmi and Ayamy. Last week there was a doujin market and actually saw touhou music for sale). On the doll sale, Volks shut down but there is a doll community that holds multiple markets a year aimed more at MSD and Asian BJD with some of the larger Volks models on the side. So many wigs and eyes. Pic is of a table I liked.>>20963907>Any expectations on this?Not really. I've been to Osaka and Akihabara but I'd imagine Ikebukuro is more of the same, e.g. maybe a few things that aren't in stock in either store.
>>20964933>MDDs with tiddydisgusting
>>20964982Can we really judge a man's taste ?I'm just saying that because i like it
I've read the pastebin. Have questions about the whole customization process. I really wanna do something like this in the future (recreate touhous) when I can afford it.Is it easy enough to ensure that doll parts are compatible?Do you sew the clothes yourself or is it easier to find one that looks similar?What sets of tools are useful to you?
>>20964982Have a closer picture.
>>20966453>Do you sew the clothes yourself or is it easier to find one that looks similar?Why not just give a commission to a tailor?
>>20964933> flights that are 3-4x more expensive Consider taking a ferry out of busan thats relatively cheap. Trip takes about 5 hours. But even then, I feel like flights shouldnt be that expensive if you book them early enough.
>>20964982>These glasses stink!
>>20967414Still haven't been to Fukuoka and I'm going to do the ferry trip one day. But the KTX Seoul to Busan is 50,000 won one way; getting to a station by taxi actually isn't that expensive, public transport is dirt cheap on the other hand.>>20967414>But even then, I feel like flights shouldnt be that expensive if you book them early enough.I feel I might've overestimated a bit though, maybe x3 max.Chuseok 2019 is 12-14 September this year. A normal Tuesday flight, return Sunday for Seoul-Tokyo is 201k Won. The price right now for Chuseok is 443k Won return. Prices get worse as time goes on even with Korean LCCs releasing tickets later.
>>20967494Oooohhhh I like that photo a lot.
>>20949076I've seen some but they have to use some kind of sculpting clay/putty to smooth over the eyeholes if it's a DD (closed eye) head. Also Parabox offers closed eye heads with flatter eyes but there's still an indent for the eyes so. It's possible and cute but requires extra work to use an existing head
Postman finally brought my new girl today. I haven't decided on a wig for her yet but I think this one looks pretty good on her in the meantime.
>>20949041>>20949759Not a base head, each limited DD has a unique head mold. Jeanne is just Jeanne.>>20961703She is not. The size, eyes, cheeks, and mouth shape are all different.
How do you deal with braids getting messy? I went ocd on mine and made it worse.
>>20970204What a dork
>>20970587By not buying braid wigs.
>>20970920>>20970925would look better with black stockings but i understand your fears
>>20971766that's a big gun
post lewd dolls
>>20970204Oh wow she is absolutely adorable!!>>20970920>>20970925These are really good too.
>>20972370wish i could find some head veil for mine
>>20972579Just get a curtain and cut off a part of it.
>>20970920>>20970925She's cute and I like her hair. I have the darker version of this outfit, but I'm waiting for one more piece before I put it on my girl. Out of curiosity, is she a DD or DDS?
>>20971273>>20972990That's not my doll lol @ranbutan39
>>20973047somehow i'm more interested by her head than her striped panties
>>20973125yeah the look in her eyes is far more intriguing than that massive chest
fluffy underwears from azone
>>20973524AZO2 are a blessing and i'll never regret getting mine even if getting clothes is a pain in the ass
>>20972990Dude that's a straight up Snow Miku. DDIII.
Got my girl new glasses.
>>20974173All I see is potential staining
>>20974173Brush her hair
>>20973909Ah, I see it now. Thanks for pointing that out.
>>20976447>>20976562Someday i'll buy my doll a casual outfit i always postpone that since i like seeing her in lingerie too much
>>20970215Then explain Rei Ayanami who is a DDH02 and Mashiro Mito who is a DDH06?
>Mashiro Mito who is a DDH06?
>>20977416Rei Ayanami's head was made a standard after her release, and she was literally the first one in the entire line. And her head mold was updated to a new mold that's unique to her on her newer release. Mashiro Mito's head isn't a DDH-06 as far as I can find.
>>20978038they are literally the same head numb nuts
>>20978038>>20978044The mouth is completely different and the eyeholes are smaller on Mashiro. Also Mashiro has no eyelid creases carved into the mold.
>>20978099Pretty sure whoever they are were just being an asshole. Or a neck beard trying to defend their poorly drafted assumptions
>>20978213We'll never know unless they open their mouths again.>>20973538I wish I could buy one with no head or accessories the same as a regular Obitsu body. One of mine requires one and I don't know anywhere to buy a base body, so I'm camping Mandarake for an AZ02 fullset that's cheap for some reason (no head, missing clothes etc).
>>20978273i still dont get that chicken meme
>>20978294>I've never gotten myself and my chadbros kicked out of a store because we fucked around with the entire display bin of dog toy chickensDo you even live bro.Anyway if you are all going to insist on posting girls in undress please ensure you post the correct body type, thank.
>>20978325She is cute! Any photos with more clothes on though?
>>20978325i always feel like an open mouthed head must be boring after a while
>>20978451ask and ye shall receiveperoperoudonI like it when the avatar is the doll, then it's more like a gravure idol's selfie reel instead of some guy posting photos.
>>20978528i think i like her sister more
>>20978528How adorable thank you.
>>20978496Boring? I'm not sure, but it can limit clothing and playing options. But much like coloured facial features (Miku, etc), if it's what you wanted them to look like it shouldn't get boring. Can make a doll unsaleable though... a lot of the repeat offenders of facebook sales groups are heavily modified heads that can't really be repurposed in any way.>>20978614No problem, always happy to share a bounty with those in need.
>>20978558>even has a little bandage on the kneeAdorable!ADORABLE I SAY!
>>20978755She's just clumsy and falls down the stairs a lot. Ask her yourself, I made sure she'll say the same thing!
>>20978325Who are you quoting?
>>20978886>I made sure she'll say the same thing!you monster
>>20946998>Shame someone else still hasn’t posted some cute girls riding sharks.They're ikea sharks and are quite inexpensive.
The sun is setting on the shark meme anyway.
>>20984691Why are her glasses so far off her face? Otherwise, it's a fun setup.
>>20984001Off to adventure or naps with her sharky friend.
>>20986105I love this, we don't get enough mature sexy clothed dolls, and I realize it's 100% that face.
>>20988459Definitely the face
Can't do a photoshoot with my girl today because her leg fell off and will NOT go back on for some reason. Never had this problem before, is this a DDf3 issue?
and nothing of value was lost
>>20993518Oh no! Is it broken?
>>20993518As an autist I demand to know why you fucked up your doll.
>>20993518Head to https://www.dollfiedream.tokyo/dd_en/support/ddf3/ and see if it's one of the screws too tight or if something broke on the frame. Good luck.
>>20974507Yeah, wig is shit, it's a temp until her good one comes in. It's basically untameable right now.
>>20993518The DDF-3 Leg internal frame is not completely round, the notch on the side have to line up perfectly for it to fit back in.
>>21000348Oh cool is that your doll! You're so lucky to have her!
>>21000385I want to fart on you
I have returned, for better or worse.
>>21002664well at least you understand the basic of volume your biggest problem right now is that you dont know how to draw faces And one advice i got when i tried to learn drawing dont do multiple small lines but the longest continue line you can do.
>>21003037Right.I've spent some time doing Loomis Fun With a Pencil, so I can draw a pretty effective bulky head, but I have little understanding of how to transfer that knowledge to dolls, where the faces are very flat. About your second point, I realized all the chins were fucked up and went back to fix them. But yeah, I need to be more confident in my lines.
>>20964933>>20966781Oppai MMD.I think I have a new desire.
>>20978886I didn't know dolls could have eyebags. Could you post more pics? It's my fetish.
But hay free shipping right?
>>21009910>850$ for that ugly shit some people have no shameSpeaking of custom head those can go so high on yaj espaciallly when the mouth is sculpted.I juste hope one day i'll be able to find an affordable nice one
>>21009910God damn it, this is giving me flashbacks to trying to buy shit off Craigslist and people wanting retail price for something used and years old. I could get a whole doll for that much man.
>>21009985You can just commission your own for less than $200. I got a custom DDH07 from a dealer on Etsy for $150 including the head shipped, and I'm very happy.
>>21010033It's usually only custom make up i'm looking for more than just a standard head i can go high but it always goes over budgetlike this onehttps://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/x605454982
>>21010113You can occasionally find some really neat custom heads with open mouths/expanded eye holes that go for cheap just because they aren't from one of those popular twitter accounts. I think like half the money they go for is because those artists are so prolific that people get hyped up to own one of their dolls.
>>21010500>I think like half the money they go for is because those artists are so prolific that people get hyped up to own one of their dolls.Yeah, that's how that fucking works.
>>20973491God bless azo2 bodies
>>21018827I kinda wish I bought a MSD whenever I see these pics. Oh well. So I bought something from Otamart, and the seller hasn't done anything about it in 6 days, does anybody have any experience with this kinda thing through FromJapan? Do I need to message anybody?
