      WOW these are AMAZING!!! I've been so charmed by your signature characters for a while but this is like stunning! 😭 It seems like a ridiculous amount of work. I love your teeny renditions of all the little face sculpts in particular, they're so accurate.

      Very interesting thread! I'm very interested to see how the vinyl side of the doll hobby approaches characters, since it seems like OCs are less common over here than they are on the resin side of things. For vinyl it seems like shelling your favorite anime/game characters is a lot more common. I've been drawing and designing characters for as long as I remember, but I don't ever make them into dolls. I'm kind of finicky about my characters being "on model", and I have a cartoony style that just doesn't translate into dolls well for a variety of reasons. For my dolls I usually start with a super super basic trope (Tsundere, stoic, bubbly, mischievous, stuffy, bashful, etc.) when planning the faceup, and the character sort of "builds itself" from there. There's no real concrete story connecting them all, they're just sort of personalities to bounce off one another. I know them well enough to be able to say "oh no, he would never wear this outfit" or "she would definitely be the one to hold up a peace sign in a group photo" but I don't usually think about things like "what is her relationship with her mother" or "what is his greatest fear". So I guess they're pretty shallow. 😅 But I don't mind, to me my dolls are like the cast of a really low-stakes slice of life comedy anime. That's kind of how I think of it, anyways.

      I don't really know where to put this, so mods feel free to move it if you feel it'd be better somewhere else. But I'd like to share a bit of a labor of love I've been working on for a couple of months at this point. Behold, the Virtual Dream Choice! First of all, I'd like to thank my girlfriend for making the D'Coord outfit, as well as the Dream Choice DDS dress. And for what this actually is...I love dress up games and dollmakers, and wanted to give people an opportunity to make their own Dollfies in pixel form! Or just make some for fun, I don't judge. It's all modular, so it should snap together pretty well! There's also a version with layers I can link to if necessary, but this should work with any image-editing software, including MS Paint! My only recommendation would be to delete the "dark" part of the eyesocket before putting eyes behind the head. I'll also add the rest of the Dream Choice heads if I find photos of them blank, and maybe some more collab dolls and some wigs eventually! But uh, have fun!

      @Zai I got curious about this too and managed to find a blank Y’shtola! Her eyelids are more pronounced than I thought. https://x.com/melon_whitesoda/status/1691650483021328428?s=46&t=4p5nRrsi9Bdrs_0lk7Ex6w

      At first, I just bought my dolls because they were pretty. Didn’t have any plans for them beyond that, and didn’t even know the characters they were based on. Over time I started to get ideas for photostories with my character dolls, and slowly came up with personalities for them based on their existing characters, with some adjustments to the ones I thought were too boring or just didn’t like, but my dolls are still somewhat distinct from their source material. My custom dolls are shells of characters from one of my favourite games and are not distinct from their source material (in my mind, at least). I have no plans to create any storylines with them. For my smaller dolls, I don’t really have any ideas for them, they’re just whatever the backstories their respective companies gave them (if at all). I don’t really do OCs.
