Are you still waiting for your Volks Miku?Did you get her?If yes, post pictures!Of course, all other dolls welcome as well.LET'S KEEP THIS THREAD ALIVE!
>No "previous thread" because the old one have been nuked from the recent archives.
I'd love an Azone Shimakaze, but that body SUCK. Especially for the ass. Shimakaze is all about ass and that Barbie ass won't cut it. Is there a good replacement body out there that would be compatible with her painted arms and her head with minimum modding? All clothes must also fit.
>>21649080For uniformity's sake put the faq in the OP next time. saves us from sorting through sex doll shit when archive digging dollfaq.buyfags.moe >>21649081https://warosu.org/jp/?task=search&ghost=&search_text=dollfaqpic unrelated. you know why you like dolls.
>>21649121Obitsu is probably the closest doll in size and proportions. Painting the arms would be easy as fuck though and thats not much of a concern compared to everything else fitting.
>>21650740Figured as much.>>21650581Thanks anon.
>>21652514>Figured as much.I'll have to intervene on the other anon's suggestion. Obitsu bodies are skinny. I tried putting a PN head on an Obitsu body before they made jointed PN's. PN clothes are baggy on Obitsu bodies. The ass might not be built like a lego figure but you'll encounter fit issues elsewhere. With an outfit as skimpy as Shimakaze's it probably won't turn out as well as you intend.
>>21652616Clothes fitting is the main concern.How about those "porno" seamless bodies?In case the clothes fit, the problem with the gloves and shoes remain.
>>21652630Forgot to post, if you're still interested on obitsus: https://paraboxshop.jp/index_en_jpy_142.html>How about those "porno" seamless bodies?You mean Tokyo doll co?http://tokyodoll.jp/?mode=cate&cbid=2257176&csid=3>In case the clothes fit, the problem with the goves and shoes remain.I'm pretty sure the PN Shimakaze had painted or molded white arms, they were delineated from the skin with cuffs. As far as shoes go, you can attempt to make shoes, or lop off the feet (I know, I know) to make the boots fit. You can always get another body if you intend to spend any time with her boots off.
>>21652665Bought a few Obitsus already. Parabox don't have much clothes choices but their consumer service is ridiculously awesome,I know she have painted arms. But if the cuff are removable, it would fix all problems. And at worst, going all Bratz on her for the boots.http://tokyodoll.jp/?mode=cate&cbid=2257176&csid=3That's awesome! Now if only the site had an English option...Also, how about the sizes compared to Pure Nemo? Of course, no giant tits would ever fit. The 25S could be the best. But for the price of that body, I'd be nervous painting those arms...>http://tokyodoll.jp/?mode=cate&cbid=2257176&csid=3
>>21652721>That's awesome! Now if only the site had an English option...You can try hobbysearch https://1999.co.jp/eng/list/3181/0/1?sold=1I haven't had much experience with them when stock is listed "backorder" but I'm sure if you go through the motions they'll let you know if it can or can't be ordered. Alternatively you can just use a proxy.
Anons, may I ask for a bit of spoon-feeding too... I would like to get an Aoki Sora's head from Visuadoll. There are only full set dolls and body parts on their e-shop site. What other options do I have to get the head only, instead of buying a complete doll?
>>21653566Why is this a question? If they don’t need offer it the way you want check the second hand market but don’t expect much
>>21652721Painting something made of silicone is not for the faint of heart. You're gonna need some silicone-based paint if you want it to be permanent and hold up to movement, and if you fuck up, its fucked up for good because once it dries its gonna be bonded to it forever.
Do any of you have experience owning life-sized dolls?
>>21655883As I thought. So I'll need proper gloves instead. But the hands will look like mittens at the 1/6 scale.What do...
I decided to take a couple of my dolls with me to AX to try to get cute pictures in my hotel room at night and in the morning, but I'm retarded and left my camera batteries at home. I never do anything right.
>>21656216That's probably a question to ask the onahole general since life-sized dolls are typically made with that purpose.>>21658851You could buy some more though, couldn't you? Or are they really expensive?
>>21658851Silly anon! Did you use your phone camera for pictures instead?
>>21660205>You could buy some more though, couldn't you? Or are they really expensive?I probably could have, but I have no idea where I needed to go.>>21660956I only took one because I wasn't too happy with my phone.
People keep telling me I'm wrong about Volks copying the name mirai from danny choo's character but if i was wrong why does it list smart doll mirai as being released 4 months before the volks one??????
>>21663142Mirai is a pretty damn common name.Is this fake outrage just to make free publicity or what? Because no matter the side that whole argument is petty and pointless.
How long does hobby search take to put an order together? I placed an order on the 27th and it's still "preparing for shipment".
>>21663537Look up possible Japanese holidays.
>>21663142First off the name Mirai is very common. Second the volks Mirai doll you are comparing there is an updated reissue of a doll first sold in 2003.
We should start putting the booru on the thread starter. This way more people will know about it and upload and tag and stuff.https://bjd.booru.org/index.php
>>21664695You are a saint.
I really need to come up with names for these two.
>>21664695What's with the dupes?https://bjd.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=24212https://bjd.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=24218https://bjd.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=24213https://bjd.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=24220
>>21668365Vanilla doesn't really fit the new one's whole "I'm going to cut out your kidneys with a box cutter" vibe.
>>21668213Sal and Peppa (salt and pepper)
>>21668378She just looks tired not a psycho
>>21668213Blue eyed look blind.
GOT MY HATSUNE MIKU REBOOT!Of course the box have been kicked around. Resulting in this. By principle it's bad because Volks should use hard cardboard box like Mandarake does. Not "toilet paper" soft shipping boxes.Oh well.
Of course, the content is in pristine condition so it's all good.
I applied the arm sticker. Unfortunately, I don't have any decal sealant. I'll just have to be careful until I get some.
The Reboot body is pretty amazing and pose really well. I love those hips and the "flesh" of the doll is silky smooth.
She came with a pair of spare hands that are just the left/right versions of the ones she already have. I would have loved some "peace" or V sign hands. To be bought separately I guess.
Miku was not too hard to dress up. Even the plastic clips were easy to put on. The fact that they are relatively big make them stay in place without popping out that the slightest touch.Enjoy the sideway picture.
Her face-up and her eyes are magnificent! The wig is a bit frizzy, but manageable without any doll hair-gel (Like they recommend using in the manual).
Overall, DD Hatsune Miku Reboot was well worth jumping through the hoops by ordering her from Volks USA in the event. She and DDS Kagamine Rin are making a great duo!
I ordered my DDS Kagamine Rin last year from Mandarake at 80K yen plus shipping. "Used" but basically barely touched. For reasons, Canadian customs never hit Mandarake boxes so the total for Rin was around 1060$CAN total.As for Ordering Miku at the last Volks May event... Canadian customs did obviously hit hard, as expected. 658$US plus shipping plus around 140$CAN in custom taxes. Grand total, around 1100$CAN.So, by ordering from Volks, I paid 40$CAN more compared to a brand new Mandarake Miku at 80K yen. At least I have the Reboot version and 40$ difference at this scale is pretty much irrelevant.TlDr; a 80K yen DD doll at Mandarake amount to the same total price as a 660$US Volks event doll.
>>21669782How do I get my reboot to look like this?
Tan girl is here lads, sporting a spare wig and eyes I had laying around until new things get here.
>>21668213Red & Rum if you're looking to be edgy.
>>21673130Cute, will you do group pictures with your other dolls ?
>>21673224Absolutely. Waiting on some stands to come in first. (Also for the weather to be less humid, hot, and stormy.)
Oh hey this thread is finally upI am looking for a site (shop/blog) that I saw awhile ago in one of these thread where they sell really lewd dolls: basically big boobs, hard erected nipples and lewd faces/head.Do you guys happend to know that site, or anything alternative site selling said stuff?Thank you in advance.
>>21676188Oh yes that's the one. Thank you very much!
>>21675824Angel Philia/Pink Drops might also interest you.
I'm kind of new to dolls, how fast do things typically sell out because I want to get the Iris Collect Koharu but I wonder if she would still be available on Hobby Search in a couple months?
>>21685256Probably not. Most dolls sell out pretty fast and you need to buy them secondhand if you don’t buy them near release. The production runs are small.
Had some stability issues with my dolls. Especially with air currents due to the fans in the room. One hand aganst the back wall fixed this. Plus that pose is not too bad.Sorry for possible wrong rotation of the picture.
>>21688385>Picture is in the right way!A miracle.Anyway, anyone else got their Miku Reboot or Sakura Miku?
>>21668213oh you got a new girl! she's adorable. for names i'd suggest cream or skye for the blonde and ruby or cinnamon for the brown haired one, they're very cute
>>21688385Good lord the old DD faces look like ass.
>>21692965Comparison with a newer one? Because she's just fin e for me.The only thing I find odd is that Miku is very pale compared to Rin, who have a more natural skin tone.
>>21692965I think Miku has one of the best factory faceups. The official faceups just are generally bland compared to custom ones like >>21668213
>>21695640I like this one a lot.
>>21693809miku has always come with semi-white skin. sakura miku is the only one with normal skin
Would you propose to your doll? Are there doll sized wedding dresses?
>>21700216>Would i propose to my daughterAbsolutely not
>>21700216>Are there doll sized wedding dresses?yes of course
>>21668247They were duplicated (with a different MD5) on the original Dollbooru, and I didn't dedup similar images before uploading.
>>21700216No, polygamy is illegal.
Megurine Luka is available at Volks USA for 690$US!https://volksusastore.com/webstores/dollfie/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=93402 Vocaloids (Rin & Miku) is enough for me, however.
>>21704293Haha! She costs more than Miku. Probably because Miku is short and flat!>>21688394>Sakura MikuPic related kind of answers the question of "what were they thinking?"
Aside from the head, are all DD parts interchangable?I kind of want to try out a different bust for Jannu, but wasn't sure if some parts are specific to her
>>21708324there's a part compatibility chart on DD's website
>>21708375lol i want her to use those on other dolls
Do your dolls have dolls?
>>21669782i need this miku dollwhere can i get one
>>21708375Would serve her and sell out my faction leaders to her.
>>21708427you buy a miku DD, you change the eye and draw on her mouth
>>21658851>>21661326Someone posted these on /g/ and I am in love. Name?
>>21708162You got a Sakura Miku and you don't like her?
>>21709222Oh no! someone doesn't like what you like! Calm down.
>>21709524Uh? The fuck are you smoking? Seriously.I genuinely asked someone who bought a 700$US+ doll if he didn't like his purchase.Guess I wasn't clear enough. But maybe him (and you) are just keyboard warriors who only have opinions on things they will never buy.
>>21709590You don't need to buy a doll to have an opinion on her, Mr. Volks sales representative, sir!
>>21709615So, you go on a thread that have about NO trafic, only to shit on things.Classy.
If there's anyone out there, can someone tell me if Blythe hats (like baseball caps) can fit a Dollfie Dream head?
>>21712301I had a Blythe and their heads are way bigger than typical SD/DD heads - it would very likely be too big.
>>21716337I thought so.Thanks!
How do I buy my way from nothing to cute doll with fuck huge titty. I guess I get a standard dolfie dream from that volks website, buy one of those 神乳 parts from yafuoku, and just swap out the chest?
So I finally got around to getting a wig to replace Jeanne's default. I got it pretty much the length/style I want, but the shorter length hair just doesn't want to cooperate. I tried the watered down fabric softener method, but it doesn't seemed to have done much. Is there any better ways to get short hair to behave?
>>21722714Just make sure the parts and compatible with the skeleton and the color match. Doing this online is not easy. Plus that erotic part cost a freaking FORTUNE. You don't want to mess up.
>>21722714Depending on what scale and type the doll is you may have to modify your doll to get the breasts on. Many of the bust are designed for 50cm dolls while Dollfies are 60cm.
>>21723783Their website says it fits V社60cmPVCドール, but would the standard dollfie at 57cm be fine? I figure it's not that big a difference, but I don't see a 60cm on the Volks website, unless it was an older model.
>>21724991i bought the himoneko one for obitsu on yaj and i was disapointed i wonder if there're better
Did a small photo shoot of Gin in a new outfit I bought a little while back. Hopefully the weather improves over the next few days and I have some free time to do another shoot outside. Will post the rest after fixing up the set.
>>21726163I've tried the huusei ty bust and monaca doll parts' bust. Of the two I prefer the monaca one.
I'm trying not to buy any new clothes for my doll until September because I'll be able to buy a bunch of stuff in person but man it's so hard. Temptation is hitting me from everywhere. I just want my giant plastic daughter to be happy.
>>21727964>Of the two I prefer the monaca one.Could you provide me with a link please ?my google is terrible for that kind of thing

Any recommendations on where to get modern party dresses?
I'd love an Angelphilia or DD in the future, even moreso since I got this Azone hybrid. Does anyone here remember those torsos you could buy (I think they were compatible with larger Obitsu or DD) that was a soft chubby belly for your doll?
>>21649121Try this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LGd0XdkBfY
Today i tried taking low luminosity pictures ( a single candle), turns out it's real hard to get something not trash but i quite like this one.
>>21750251i was going for the shortest exposure possible
>>21751747That doesn't really make any sense. You have three variables to work with if you can't make the light source brighter.1. ISO2. Aperture (F stop)3. ExposureISO is limited by your camera's sensor, unless it's a really fucking good sensor in a very expensive DSLR, noise becomes an issue really quickly. Boosting ISO is generally quick and dirty, best results when ISO is at lowest setting unless you intentionally want noise. Aperture is limited by your lens, the smaller the F stop number = bigger hole for light to get into the camera, but it makes the depth of field smaller. Big hole = usually much more expensive lens. Longer exposure is pretty much the best way of getting a better picture in low light, especially with a doll because IT DOESN'T MOVE.tl;dr stop being dumb
>>21753315>especially with a doll because IT DOESN'T MOVE.even with if it doesnt move without a stand which i didnt have available good luck not making a blurry mess
>>21754535Rest the camera on something and set it to take a pic a few seconds after you press the button.
Someone tried to impersonate me to cancel an order so they could get the doll I won in an auction. People are crazy in this hobby.
>>21759287These companies need to hit with something big, so they stop this exclusivity shit. Take notes from the kyoani arson.
>>21759287Pic related, I'm getting the doll.>>21759354I don't disagree, the exclusivity bullshit is a pain in the ass that benefits nobody. Whatever dumb fucker said "I'm only going to make this much money instead of all the money my customers will throw at me" is only hurting temselves.
>>21759380she looks like a grape
>>21759380whatever people says i like smartdolls especially the darker ones
>>21759287Autism. All that it’s not even a custom doll, just something they could bid on next time.
>>21759740Yeah but it's part of the charm.>>21760087It's a whole clusterfuck and I think they're actually trying to catfish me as someone else now because the line "my friend is trying to get her for her daughter with leukemia" was used. It's all over a doll. She comes up for sale a few times a year, it's not like one of the four sisters or another ancient limited-release doll here. And hell, even if it was, there's no reason to act like this.Do any of you guys have crazy doll stories or am I alone in this?
https://twitter.com/mscr_0102SMD owner is cycling cross the USA with his doll
>>21764557based but also shit tastes in dolls
>>21764891I'd rather he take something destined to end up in a landfill than any Volks dolls
>>21657699Get a figure instead pervert (Or get some epoxy and sculpt an ass onto her)
>>21759904They are super cute irl, just wish Danny would get someone to physically sculpt the faces instead of 3d modelling and add a bit of muscle detail to the arms
>>21765594i like some smartdolls but he took the most boring one
>>21765715He really did. Also is that a Smart Doll Plus? They're fucking huge.
>>21766213i think it's because of the focal lenght
>>21759287Smart on the seller to send you the info too. God speed.
>>21759287are you french
>>21724991What is the point of giant tits on their flat stick bodies? It just looks like a joke.
>>21773375We're talking about the biggest nation of incels here. You know: the fine men amongst the collapsing birthrate who came up with these dolls for you fine people. Well, they may not have the healthiest views of women in the world. Just saying.
>>21773560The lighting is doing Choco no favours at all.
I decided to try a low light picture too.I used my phone to preview the exported files because I still can't seem to get the calibration for my monitors right, so I apologize if this looks weird.
>>21773522I dont know if you're serious or an elaborate troll
Hay threads still going eh. I came back because I got a Cortex! You have questions and I many have answers. First up she has a vinyl bust because I think the plastic one restricts movement too much, I don’t mind seam lines but if they bother you stay away. And lastly this was the ninja grade kit and it’s more work then you might think.Overall I don’t give Cortex a recommendation to buy stick with vinyl.
>>21774575>I came back because I got a Cortex!So they're finally out ? Can you take a pic of the seams ?
>>21774630I feel with more skill or effort some of these could be tighter. But this is how my lil elf shook out.
>>21774630In the end unless you are spending all the time on removing them they will be there.
>>21774630I am happy with her but i won’t get another. It’s not a way to save money it’s more for people who don’t mind the lines or hobbyists.
>>21774727not that bad. What was the price ?
>>21774754Its on the SmD site 39,800 prebuilt34,800 Ninja Grade Kit (what i got)29,000 Final Boss Grade Kit.Kits come with no clothes. prebuilt comes with underoosa regular SmD with underroos is 52,000https://shop.smartdoll.jp/collections/smartdolls/products/smart-doll-mirai-cortex-versionhttps://shop.smartdoll.jp/collections/smartdolls/products/smart-doll-gaia-cortex-version
>>21774839Price isnt that cheap but i kinda want one to paint it metallic for robot look
>>21774884As it’s all plastic body and inner frame this would be the one to do it with. I feel it’s more useful for hobbyists then people trying to save a buck.
>>21774915It's refreshing to see someone talk about a Smartdoll without doing it through rose tinted glasses. >I feel it’s more useful for hobbyists then people trying to save a buckSounds like it's perfect for people with experience painting figures. Some buildup material and an airbrush and you can make some interesting customs without the core drama of sculpting from scratch.
>>21772833No, why?>>21772467She should be here Tuesday, should have photos to share Wednesday.>>21775777Agreed, tripsanon. I like SmD but they still have flaws. Ddf3 and Obitsu both have better range of motion for certain, as an example.
Putting socks on a doll gave me foot fetish.
>>21782613Try putting pantyhose and realize 5 minute later that you just lost virginity to your doll's ashimanko. I'm not talking from personal experience at a-all!!!!!!
>>21782717Maybe use your hands next time, not your dick.
>>21782740Don't you mean use his hands, not his doll?
>>21774839How is the range of motion on them vs a regular vinyl? I assume similar, but was curious if more or less pose able.
i need this for my dolls. because you know, high maintenance lol
>>21784210forgot link https://twitter.com/youchien_hensyu/status/1155674411271217158because i'm a moron
my doll finally arrived!
>>21784388She's adorable! Where did you get that pool floatie anon? I've been looking for some myself.>>21759740>>21759904>>21760087>>21772467Girl's finally here.
>>21784412Thank you! I found it on Mandarake.
>>21784388She's cute anon, well picked. I think she's a bit too flat for that top, though.>>21784412Well at least the lips match.
>>21783613Without a vinyl bust you lose practically all neck motion. I already had an extra vinyl bust but I would recommend you get one. Otherwise motion is on par with a regular SmD so legs only bend 90.
>>21784388She’s a cutie!>>21784412This is what drove me crazy about that skin tone. It looks good in this image but awful in other images. I hope she looks good real life because she is cute.
>>21784542It definitely is a little odd, but I personally like it, and it definitely photographs easily enough. New Cocoa is so dark and Dollfie/Obitsu/Milk skintones are so light that they can be fiddly under the sun. Dollfie Tan/SmD Tea/Old Cocoa are very cooperative.Here's a photo I took while I was making dinner off my garbage tablet for another point of comparison.
>>21784388a real cutie>>21784412prettiest grape
>>21784825The purplish tint to the skin tone makes her look more like a drow or something. I suggest investing in elf ears and rags for clothes.
>>21775777Will the paint adhere to the plastic properly? I don’t know much about figure paintingsI’ll begrudgingly admit this is quite cool, if he released a non 3d printed realistic face sculpt I’d get one no doubt
>>21786509There are plastic primers some even have a bit of thinner in them to adhere to plastic.
>>21786548There are paints that also excel at direct adhesion such as Mr Color. Unfortunately they're difficult to import since they're lacquer paints.
>>21785635>ragsmore like leather and go full dominatrix
What do anons think about Azone's dolls from the summer Wonder Festival? Pic related.
I paid the price just to get that doll. For reasons, I "fell in love" with Creamy Mami. I randomly found out about the show just last year so nostalgia is not a factor.Any of you guys love retro characters to the point of buying expensive collectibles?
>>21797641anon why not this one
>>21800298Being super rich, I would LOVE to have her. But holy flying fuck, 150K yen at the very least for a USED one...I'll keep on dreaming.
Shit-tier phone photo comparison of SmD Old Cocoa and DD Sun Skin, on the pure off-chance that someone, somewhere, might need it.
>>21800788You could probably commission someone to make you a similar fullset for around a grand on etsy if that's easier to swallow?
I sure wish I could afford to move out and have disposable income. I think my dad would kick my ass if I bought one of these. A fresh clean apartment full of dolls and other nice things. I dream.
>>21801250You'll get there in time, 'non. Consider it a hope for a brighter future. I and mine will be hoping for you.
>>21801521Thank you. I will let the cute and fuwafuwa drive me to success.
>>21801227Maybe. But my inner geek will be pissed to not have the REAL collectible. If I commission a full set on Etsy, I'd rather go for something that doesn't exist yet. Like pic related. Man, this would cost a fortune to make.
>>21801563Honestly, going to be serious on this rubber stamp collecting board for a second -- we gotta take the happiness we can find in this life, I think. Whether it's anime or vidya, music or art, animals or writing or anything else, if it gives you a reason to crawl out of the depression nest, then to me, that's worthwhile. It's important to you, so follow it and see where that takes you. There's a trend these days that our hobbies have to have some monetary reward to be worthwhile or meaningful, and honestly? Fuck that noise. There's merit in fun for it's own sake and to hell with anyone unable to understand that.So if cute dolls spark joy in your life, hell yes to that. Take hold of that ember like Howl catching Calcifer and use it to light the fire that keeps you living. Because it only takes a little spark to light the way forward, grab every one you find. It's worth it.We all are.
>>21801655Nothing more frustrating than:>I love to --hobby-->"Why, what's the point?"Or when you face a fucking nihilist:>I love this --doll, toy, collectible-->"Why? I'd just an overpriced Barbie. / It's just plastics"Make me rage every times. When confronting that kind of people, I don't even try to argue because their mind is already made and there's no changing it. I just say "whatever" and move on.
>>21801655Very nice insight anon. The normal things in life never motivated me and I guess that's part of why I am where I am. I'm not saying dolls are going to make me turn my life around, but its little things like that that paint a picture I want to work towards. I spent too much time trying to fit in and I regret most of it, it was embarrassing. I just want to be on my own and embrace the things I like. I think most on this board will agree, being 'normal' just doesn't work for some people and will only lead to misery. One of my big regrets is making half-ass friends back in the day when I could have just been embracing the 00s otaku culture that I missed out on. It feels shitty.I don't want to subvert the thread into something bloggy but I do appreciate your post. Stay good
>>21801084I hope gravity will do the needful and these two end up on top of each other.
>>21801786I would disparage the guy in the pic not for his hobby, but for having shit furniture and being obese.
>>21745531I love stop motion. Has anyone here done stop motion animation with their dolls? Post your work!
>>21801786You (in general) hang out with these people and you don't do things you enjoy with them. There are things you like that they don't get. I have friends that go on and on and on and on about hockey like John fucking Nash but I don't give a shit, I don't shit down their throats about it either. But bring out my camera and they're assholes about it like they have a biological function that dictates they *need* to be assholes about it. These are toxic people. You don't need them in your life nor do you need to keep them close.
can I fuck them?
>>21806396no, go to the onahole thread for those
>>21801786Sometimes the healthiest thing you can do is simply to walk away from a discussion. I wish these people could, in turn, learn to say "well I don't get it myself, but I respect how much passion you have for it." It's not hard not to be a dick.>>21801812I understand that. For me personally, dolls haven't been the magic bullet to my problems, but they've been, if nothing else, the kind of tylenol you can only get at the dentist. And that's enough for them to be worthwhile to me.I think it's on topic to talk about why we like our dolls, that said. Whether it's purely for the aesthetics of having them around or something more than that, I always like to hear about what drew people to this hobby, personally. Also I wish I was combing that doll's hair, she's very cute. You stay good too, yeah?>>21803709I've seen things like that occasionally before, I'll try to find them again.
>>21806770>"well I don't get it myself, but I respect how much passion you have for it." It's not hard not to be a dick.much harder than it sounds for lots of people apparently.
>>21803683Who give a fuck about the stupid furniture?However, being this obese IS a serious problem.
>>21809535That furniture screams "I've never moved out" or "if I sacrifice quality of life I can get more l00tz" Not necessarily good character indicators.
>>21809989It seems fine to me, but I'm definitely a utility over aesthetics person in most areas of my life so take that with a grain of salt.
>>21809989If I have to chose between a 1000$ doll or a 1000$ fancy desk, I'd go to Goodwill to get some used shit desk and get my 1000$ doll.If you are rich enough for both, good for you. But me, as long as a thing work, I don't really care how it look. I prefer my collectibles over fancy furniture.
Looks like it's goodbye for now bros. My dad found my figs and dolls and this kind of hobby isn't really accepted in my country. He destroyed them all (and even burned one for Christ's sake) and has kicked me out of the house. I'm gonna be homeless for an indefinite amount of time and my phone's battery will die any second now. It's not the end though, I'm sure I can bounce back from this. Peace out for a while, dollbros.
>>21649121Get epoxy and sculpt a larger one onto the existing body
>>21816540Wow. What country do you live in? Terribly sorry to hear that... Keep us updated.
>>21816540Prayers.>>21817241Hope his country at least has libraries for him to use the internet.
>>21806770>I always like to hear about what drew people to this hobby, personally.It's funny the thread has took this turn, but I had been gone for about 3 months and only came back because I'm hitting a low in life again, and looking at people's dolls and playing with my own is the quiet, alone-time therapy I need to get out of it, and what probably got me into them in the first place.I mean when you come home and they're just there waiting for you and looking cute, it's hard to think about the shitty things in life again.Some people go out for a drive or bike ride, a smoke, a drink; for me it's these little gals.>>21816540Good luck bro, but remember, life priorities first before dolls. Hope to see you soon.
>>21816540Holy shit man, F.
>>21816540Good luck anon. Hope you have some friends you can stay with while you get back on your feet.
>>21822968Anon, he's a dollfag, of course he doesn't.
>>21816540Take comfort in the knowledge that you will live to see that man's demise, anon. I'm sorry you were born into a shit family.
>>21809535>Who give a fuck about the stupid furniture?A lot of people who want/own fashion dolls, probably, because they care about beautiful objects in general.
>>21816540I hope this is an artistic work of fiction and falsehood.
>>21825193I don't see it like that. I have limited money, and thus try to spend it on things that give me the maximum performance for the fewest dollars. Pretty furniture isn't efficient because it's not as pretty as a doll, but is more expensive than a regular piece of furniture. To maximize efficiency, I get the cheapest, most sturdy, and most functional furniture. This ensures the furniture is the best at being furniture and not trying to pull double duty at being furniture while trying to be decoration. I can then spend more on dolls that are probably the highest beauty to dollar ratio of any item, exceeding any piece of furniture.If I made a lot more money and didn't have to worry about cost to performance ratios, I would probably have nicer furniture.
>>21825854You make a compelling argument. I guess in the end it depends on how much unsightly things spoil your enjoyment of beautiful things and whether you can find cheap furniture that utilitarian rather than just ass.
>>21825193It's a nice setup, but personally, the damask would give me a headache.
>>21829588Actually my bad, looks like those are customs. Look pretty good for custom clothing but when looking at the actual Dollfie clothing you can see it's different. Deleted my post for misinformation.
>>21829620Did the same since it was in response to a deleted post. Thanks for the update though, anon.
What's the status of 3D printing for doll parts?
>>21830523You can 3D print whole-ass dolls, there are schematics up for it but they're not anime BJD as far as I've seen. It's certainly doable.
I have a wig from Miruya bought in 2017, it had spent most of its time in a plastic baggie and now I notice it smells like acrid shit (probably the glue). Can I soak it in fabric softener without destroying it?
>>21831889have you tried airing it out? it probably just needs time
>>21832097Doing it at the moment, maybe you're right.
Help find it.
The mammodoll circle mentions something about a special painting service for their big boobie parts. Is that just the nipples? Is it easy enough to communicate with them and work it out? Buying one of their parts from yafuoku would be fine as is, but would they add the extra fee to the sale price, handle everything, and just process the sale with yahoo? Their blog mentions to email the painter (which I guess is someone else) directly, but also mentions to communicate through yafuoku if purchasing through there.
Time for bed.
>>21724991can these be modified with an onahole?
Minor update from Obitsuhttp://obibearmax.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-124.html
Any good online shops for wigs that ship internationally? I've looked at leekeworld but I'm wondering if there are any other good options.
My first doll is home from getting her freckles. I'm so glad I decided to have them done.
>>21846260She's super cute anon. I have to agree, at first I wasn't sure about freckles but after adopting a doll with one and seeing it in person, it blew me away and I think they're adorable as fuck now.
>>21846260What exactly is that around her waist?
>>21801250You can do it fren. I was also in your position I started from absolute zero, I loved dolls but I was fucking broke and living with my parents. I managed to sneak in an old doll that I found dirt cheap on YAJ. It was stained, the pleather clothes were tathered to shit, and the wig was beyond fucked but I loved her. I dreamed of the day I could play with her freely and I worked my ass off day and night. Now I have a decent job, my own place, 4 dolls and enough income left over that I can put into saving up for a house. Don't give up hope we're all in this together.
>>21850009Do you have pics of her? She must be really special for you.
>>21850009I'd love to see her too anon, even if she's not int he best shape, she's clearly very special, and that makes up for anything else.>>21849908Just a belt and shorts.
there's a difference between a belt and a slutty belly chain. you sir have a slutty doll.
>>21850864I did dress her as revealing as I could without a straight-up bikini, but it was to show off her new freckles. Blame the photographer, not the model.
>>21825981Well, I'm not advocating for rough plywood on bricks setup obviously. I go for the middle ground. Something that is good enough looking and effective without costing too much.
Not sure if it counts for this thread, but what do you guys think of Nendoroid dolls?
>>21850974Unholy bastard children.
>>21850974I like the enhanced posing potential, personally.
>>21850974Better than normal nendoroids but I still hate their proportions.
>>21846260She is gorgeous! You must be happy to have her. If you don't mind me asking, where/who did you have that commissioned by?
>>21851951I don't mind at all! It was x3ash on instagram, their website is lovelydollie.com I believe? I'm not sure if their commissions are open at the moment, but they have slots fairly often. It was a bit expensive (a chunk of the price was she sheer amount of MSC that had to be used, understandably,) but for me personally it was worth every penny.
https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/w329448115Anyone still looking for MDD Arle? There's one up on Y!JA right now.
>>21850886I think she's tastefully slutty anon, bless her.
>>21852750>tastefully sluttyI love this board.
I went to a convention today and saw some interesting dolls , but I steered away from them because how pugently disgusting the owners here. Are the people who usually bring dolls to conventions have concerningly bad Hygiene and self care?
>>21853315I feel like bad hygiene is just con standard, unfortunately. For everyone that goes back to their hotel to shower every day, there are... those who don't.
>>21853315Someone who has a doll has to be really clean, since such precious creatures need a clean environment to live. I haven't got my first doll because I don't consider myself clean enough, physically and spiritually.
wow I never imagined so many shut-ins and socially awkward people were that immaculate with their hygiene. dolls really aren't for everyone are they
>>21853315Well if it’s an anime convention, BO is par for the course to be honest.Doll specific meets and conventions are different in my experience.
For the Dollfie Dream Sister can I get some err more porminent boobies, like less barbie doll nudity more real human boobies.I'm really considering getting a Dollfie and I have found the one I want.
>>21850886From my point of view, the photographer did a good job.
>>21850886>Dress her up slutty >blame the photographer for making her look slutty
>>21853315Every doll owner I saw at the last con I went to was obese and had greasy faces. I felt bad for the dolls knowing that their owners probably had sweaty palms just smearing their gunk all over them.
>>21856144That exactly describes the ones at the con I'm at...I can almost feel how greasy their dolls are, i feel bad for them
>>21855258Peach pai, buddy. And there are other big titty options as well, but usually you have to order them through a proxy.
>>21865305Are you in Australia? It must be cold there now.
>>21865320In the US, so it's late summer. I'm looking forward to Halloween, I want to try and make/get some kind of costume for the girls.
>>21865320>Australia>coldGood one mate.
>>21850974Can you really call it a doll without real, brushable hair? The textile clothing is only 1/2 of the equation.
>>21866068It's technically an action figure. Hasbro came up with the moniker to sell dolls for boys. Making it a doll. Checkmate.
Out getting dinner, the girls are tagging along.
>>21866068What exactly is the definition of a doll?
>>21870862a miserable pile of cuteness
>>21870862I think a doll has joints, textile clothing and real hair like I said. If it has plastic clothing or hair, its a figurine. There are posable and static figurines. I would say a GI Joe is a figurine while a Barbie is a doll. A figma is a figurine while a Dollfie is, obviously, a doll. A static scale figurine like you can buy on Amiami is definitely not a doll. This is just my autistic opinion. Feel free to object.
>>21871567Sounds correct. Do the eyes have anything special that makes a doll stand out? I mean is a requirement to be a doll to have doll eyes, or it's not a factor?
>>21871634I wouldn't call it a defining factor of whether it is or isn't a doll. More of a measure of quality. I don't think its uncommon for cheap/kid stuff to have painted eyes. They're so important for the kind of stuff discussed ITT though. I think its actually one of the major things people look out for to spot a counterfeit because they're the hardest part to recreate 1/1.
>>21871720Actually I'm wrong on that. Seems like they can recreate the eyes just fine. sasuga chinks
>gatekeeping WE DID IT
>>21866068yes, otherwise ken dolls would be action figures
>>21873268>he didn't have the Totally Hair™ Ken
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJOJisngvskBad to the bone!
>>21850974Cu-poche are better.
http://otocolle.jp/eng/Thoughts on these giant motherfuckers?
>>21876681Those heads are freakish.
>>21877009Yeah they're kind of off-putting, and I have no idea what you do for clothes in that weird size. The price isn't bad though, I'll give them that.
This is important, can I get a doll with bags under the eyes?
>>21877459If you commission someone for it, probably. Why?
>>21876681The anime style head is pretty cute, the realistic one is meh. Clothing is gonna be the biggest problem, actual toddler clothing would likely be too baggy for how skinny the body is.
>>21877804Just because I like eyebags. I think they're cute. Any idea on a ballpark price for that?
>>21878079No idea, depends on who you go to. Expect to spend at least 75 bucks if you count shipping, probably more (they usually wipe the factory faceup when doing a new one.) You can sometimes find heads like that on Yahoo Japan Auctions, as well, but prices there can range from 50 to 5000 dollars, and then some. I once saw a custom Touhou doll go for seven grand.
Technically, this abomination is a bjd.
>>21876681Cute enough but definitely too big for me. I already feel like dollfies border on too large and these are like toddler size.
>>21879092I want to take water photos of my dolls, but I fear taking water photos of my dolls, you know?
Even dolls have sex.
>>21880040looks like doll incest to me.
>>21880040I was going to ask about the cute short hair girls but then I noticed they are all dudes.
>>21879092wouldnt sea water destroy the skin and everything inside?
>>21884707Ehh, vinyl's pretty tough, but it is porous. For short periods it's probably ok, but you'd have to completely disassemble, wash, and dry the hell out of it after, so it's not worth it for me. (That said, if you have a junk body already, it's not as big of a deal because it's already damaged.)
>>21884808Well, it's just a doll body. I'd be more worried about its effect on the head/wig. worse If it's rooted hair ASK ME HOW I KNOW
>>21884884Rip anon's rooted doll head.
>>21884958Joking aside the hair just faded and became darker. How do I know? Because I have half a dozen clones that never got wet, that's how.
>>21884808Yeah the only real risk is not adequately drying. You don't want rusty screws on the inner frame or the vinyl to start growing mildew.
>>21649080what a cutie
dumb question but does the DDH-01 head fit on an obitsu 40cm or 45cm body?
>>21889511Yes with an adapter.
>>21888456Is her knee ok?
>>21889849It's just every dollfie dream knee ever.
>>21889692thank you! I was able to find one, had no idea this existed
Are there any doll bodies with large hips or thighs? I was thinking of getting a doll soon and I really love Angel Philia bodies but I want to see what my options are before I get myself into this money sinking hobby.
>>21891057Azone's AZO2 body has wide hips.
>>21891057With a face like that I can see why you're looking for alternatives.
>>21891586Not him, but some AP girls are completely fine. It's just unfortunate that most of the well-known ones have the ahegao faces.
new bread when
>>21891057>>21891586>>21891691Just FYI if you don't like the heads you can buy the Angel Philia parts separately and put them on a 50cm Obitsu body. One of my girls has a regular Obitsu body and head from Parabox with Angel Philia bust, hips, and thighs. As long as you don't go too extreme with the bust size you should be able to find clothes that fit. My girl fits in AZO2 clothes just fine.>>21892335/jp moves slow. Wait until this thread hits page 10.
>>21891691they started doing regular anime face earlier this year
>>21891691>they are the whores of the doll worldI wonder how they feel.
>>21893890Fuck, she's cute.
>>21893890Microbikinis look great on dolls, who would have thoughten?
>>21894774even better on flat doll
