    Please help me locate!

    There’s a specific Azone 50cm that I’m desperate to find! She’s from afterschool play. I’m not sure what the name of her is and I’m having trouble finding info/sales posts for her anywhere. She is dark haired, has yellow eyes and a green wicked smile. If I could figure out how to post a photo on here I would lol. Please help me find her!
  2. Cream Pan Bakery, located in Fountain Valley, California in the OC, is where we’re having our next doll meetup. Hosted by my good friends from the S.California Resin BJD & Vinyl Doll Collectors (https://www.facebook.com/groups/dollcollective/?ref=share&fs=e&s=cl), this bakery is a fun location with lots of sweets and treats, made fresh daily and ready to purchase. And the Japanese owner has been gracious to offer a space for our dolls to gather and hang out for the day (plus they’re fans of our dolls ). We hope that you’ll be able to join us for a fun time to hang out and possibly buy some treats for yourself. Cream Pan Bakery is located at: 15945 Harbor Blvd, Fountain Valley, CA 92708. Spacing is limited, so out of curiosity to others, we ask for a two doll limit. more info can be found on the Facebook event page: https://facebook.com/events/s/fountain-valley-japanese-baker/1481521578957182/ We hope to see you there, k??
  3. Rules: This topic is intended to be SAFE FOR VIEWING, so there will be NO doll nudity. Thanks! This topic contains my reviews (and occasionally others' reviews) for casual clothes that fit well [or not] on 45, 48 and 50cm Obitsu-type bodies, including AZO2 and Angel Philia. On occasion, I'll also review accessories and display items such as stands. Disclaimer: I make no guarantees about what clothes will fit. Please check with the vendor before you buy!

Short Sleeves - Many MDD tops will fit Long Sleeves & Outerwear - Tops designed for Obitsu & Azone will fit the best. MDD/DDP tops will be too short in the sleeves Besides Azone, LittleWonder carries tops made specifically for Obitsu. (Difference in sleeve length between MDD and Obitsu tops) Obitsu Large and Angel Philia (C5) are on the larger side of "normal". Anything more fitted or stiff (such as dress shirts, jumpers, uniforms) might not snap all the way. Contact the vendor if you're unsure about fit. Tops on Large Busts (AZO2-G, AZO2-I etc.) Your options are a lot more limited since these sizes are far too big for most MDD-sized clothing and too short (in the torso, arms) for DD-sized clothing. Most clothing that fits well will be from Azone's own AZO2 line. Baggy/oversized MDD clothing can sometimes work. LittleWonder also makes clothing for this size. Bottoms on Curvy Figures (AZO2, Angel Philia-H) Shorts Buy DD-sized shorts. The Azone denim shorts, while simple, are cheap, easy to find and fit well due to their elasticity. For trendier looks, TTYA or Nine9 make particularly nice pairs, but they run quite a bit tighter. Stick to low-rise shorts for the best results. High-waisted shorts may be too loose around the waist since they are designed for resin dolls with much wider waists. Skirts The best fitting skirts are made by Azone for their 50cm/AZO2 girls. They slip up the legs and are just the right waist size. Some MDD skirts also fit readily without having to slip them over the head. DD/DDS-sized skirts are often recommended, but I don't generally recommend this approach. The waist is too wide, so they sit really low, and they flare out too much for a sloppy, oversized look. Using a tiny binder clip to reduce the skirt's width helps but may wrinkle it over time. Another approach is to wear undergarments or a tee underneath to force the skirt to sit higher up. Bottoms on Slim Figures (Obitsu 48/50) Most MSD/MDD shorts and skirts fit readily on these bodies. Besides Azone, LittleWonder makes an extensive line of compatible skirts specifically for Obitsu 50. Nine9 and TTYA make particularly nice pairs of shorts. Bottoms on Angel Philia-C Most MSD/MDD skirts fit readily on Angel Philia C. See the section above for recommendations. Few shorts will fit on AP-C. MDD shorts won't pass through the legs unless they're designed for Mochiashi, but DD shorts will run too big. If your girl wants to wear shorts, avoid this size. Clothes for Azone 45cm All MDD/DDP clothes will fit readily on the Azone 45cm body (used for Iris Collect Petit) and fit just a little tighter than they do on a MDD. Clothes designed for Obitsu 48/50 will run long in the sleeves for tops and a little longer overall for bottoms. Shoes Obitsu feet are advertised as 6cm in size, versus 5cm for MDD and 5.5cm for DDP. However, I find that a lot of Azone-made shoes run small, despite being made for Obitsu feet. Volks MDD shoes by large seem to fit well, especially those that are advertised as fitting both DDP & Mochiashi feet. Non-Volks Shoes made for MDD are hit and miss. Your safest bet is to check with other owners. (I check the fit on Azone, Volks and other shoes in a dedicated post) Measurements Azone AZO2 Hips: 23.5cm Waist: 14.0cm Bust (C/G/I): 18.75cm/22cm/23cm Arm Length: 15.5cm Thigh Circumference: 14.8cm Angel Philia Hips (H/C): 23.5cm/21.5cm Waist (H/C): 14.0cm/13.8cm Bust (H2/H/C5): 19cm(?)/20cm/21cm Arm Length: 15cm Thigh Circumference (H/C): 15.5cm/13.6cm AP torso numbers run 1cm higher due to a "fat" trunk but are shaped similar to Obitsu S/M/L busts.

    My new Azone doll! Sahra ala mode

    So this past Tuesday my new doll arrived from Mandarake! It took me a while to take pictures of her, because I was so busy. I was so pleased with her when she arrived! Sahra was technically used but she was in an unopened box, the box had minor damage but I didn't even notice it. She's an older doll from 2014, so there was a little stain on her legs from her black bloomers. other wise she's perfect.
  5. Hi everyone, I wanted to share my hybrid ! I 'm obsessed by the AZO2 curves and wanted to give my angel philia a body update Things to know : The AZO2 is not in soft vinyl and my angel philia is. I try dif configuration as i wanted to keep at least the tummy/tight or tight in soft vinyl but that wasn't possible the pieces wasn't really compatible with the tummy/tight or just tight of my angel philia, proportion was way off or just wasn't even fitting Anyway, i decided to then change bust, torso and tight and the end here is the final result. I think it actually look super good on both Left is the azone with Angelphilia bust/tummy/tight and right is my AP with the AZO" bust/tummy/tight hope that help I don't own the left one anymore but if you have question for the right one let me know ^^ Here is:

    New Azone 22cm body!

    One of Azone's staff members has just shared these pictures of a newly developed 22cm girl body. She has quite a different look to the previous bodies. She looks more mature! What does everyone think? I like her a lot, but I hope the proportions aren't too dissimilar so she can fit most already existing clothes.
  7. (Disclaimer: I'm a customer with no affiliation with the company.) What does Dollypop make? Dollypop makes aftermarket outer skin parts for Obitsu-based dolls, most notably: A 3-piece torso that greatly improves upper-body flexibility for posing Thick thighs similar to those found on AZO2 and Angel Philia Pre-assembled 48/50cm Obitsu bodies with said parts Unlike the current Obitsu vinyl, Dollypop's parts are made from a soft, thin vinyl similar to what Obitsu offered prior to the switch to semi-rigid vinyl. The softness is key to achieving the flexibility that's advertised. Like Azone and Angel Philia, Dollypop contracts out production to Obitsu. Who's this for? Dollypop caters to a few specific needs: Those who want a more flexible, poseable doll Those who want a curvy doll similar to AZO2 or Angel Philia. 3-piece Torsos Dollypop's main product is a modular 3-piece torso consisting of: Chest parts ("bust") Abdominal/belly parts ("abs") Hip parts ("hips") The pieces are sold separately to let you mix and match for your needs. Each part comes in 50cm and 60cm variants, and the busts come in various sizes. Dollfie, Obitsu and Smart Doll all default to 2-piece torsos that split between the chest and lower torso (abs + hips) for a balance between aesthetics and flexibility. Dollypop splits that lower torso piece into 2 separate parts (abs + hips) to allow much more flexibility when bending the torso around the waist. This comes at the expense of aesthetics, and if that matters a lot, seamless silicone dolls are probably what you'd want to look at, but they have their own set of idiosyncrasies. + = One noticeable gain in flexibility is in bending the waist and sitting down without the doll reclining or losing the pose, as it often does with AZO2 in particular. However, a sitting pose with the legs folded in, while improved over before, isn't as flexible as it could be. However, the biggest gains are in the torso itself. By increasing the pivot points to two, this allows each part of the torso to pivot INDEPENDENTLY from each other. In the middle photo, I'm rotating everything above the hips. In the third, I'm rotating the waist to the right, then rotating the bust back to the left for a an expressive, "S" shaped pose. Hip/Waist Measurements Dollypop torsos have considerably slimmer waists for improved flexibility. Because of this, loose or high waisted bottoms may sit low, directly on the hips. The 60cm hip part is used in lieu of the 50cm hips if you want a "curvy" girl or are converting from AZO2. However, you must still use the 50cm abs part -- the 60cm version won't fit. Busts Dollypop offers 5 bust sizes (50SS - 50SL - 50ML - 50L - 50 Huge). Although the busts will nominally attach to Obitsu and AZO2 torsos, they may gap or do strange things when the torso is bent due to a shorter height. This table tells you roughly what bust is equivalent to one you already have from the perspective of clothing fit. For example, a 50ML will fit like an Obitsu Medium / AZO2-C. The 50 huge can be seen at different angles in this DollDreaming review. This Twitter account has many clothed pics of the 50 huge. AZO2-C on the left, 50L on the right. Besides the size difference, the muscles around the neck slope noticeably upward for a more mature look. Thick Thighs Dollypop sells thick thighs similar to ones by Azone (AZO2) and Angel Philia. They're similar in thickness to AP type-H (around 15.75cm), but they appear more slender due to a gentler curve and longer length (1cm longer than 50cm Obitsu). Besides the added girth, the Dollypop thighs improve the range of motion in the lateral direction (side to side) to match up with what a human can do. It's much easier to swing the shins to the side when seated. Because the thighs are made from soft vinyl, they readily deform, making them more apt for poses where the legs or shins touch. However, they aren't as flexible as what Angel Philia torsos allow due to AP's softer skin and shorter limbs. If you want the most flexibility to squat or kneel, this isn't it. Dollypop thighs can only be attached to the Dollypop 60cm hip part (as well as Angel Philia C/H torsos). They won't attach to the 50cm hip part or to a vanilla Obitsu or AZO2 torso without heavy modifications. Now for some pics with Mai! The longer length and curvier cut looks great with a mini-skirt. Mai's been wearing this same skirt all along, but the longer legs + curvier look gives a really different impression. As expected, the thighs fill out shorts better too, to the point where she has trouble slipping into her Azone pair of denim shorts. On the left is AZO2, and on the right is with the Dollypop thighs.

They communicate in Japanese and will e-mail back a response both in Japanese and machine-translated English. How to Install the Parts In short, it's easiest to install if you disassemble your doll. I did not need a blow dryer, but you may need one to remove the existing parts. You do not need it to insert the DP parts since they are already so soft. Remove the head. Remove the arms, then the bust. Detach the chest skeleton part from the spine. A twisting motion helps. This makes the abs/belly part MUCH EASIER TO INSTALL. Detach the knee / shins / feet from the thighs. Remove the thigh skin from the hip joint. This may require a blow dryer. You could instead remove the entire thigh instead, then the skin, but I've found that the groin joint has a tendency to fracture when doing this. Now, you're left with the torso and spine. First, remove the 2 hip joints. Then, this is the hardest part. Remove the torso skin from skeleton. What worked for me was getting one peg side inside the skin, then pulling out the rest from there. Now, you've disassembled your doll. First, insert the hip skin around the skeleton (the reverse of step 7). This will be considerably easier! Then insert the belly skin over the spine. Re-attach the chest skeleton part. The sternum will sit over the belly skin. Now, insert the bust. Then the arms and head. Finally re-assemble the legs by putting back the 2 hip joints, the thigh skin, then finally the knee joint. Further Reading (I ended up not following this, but this can be useful): https://dolliehsanctuary.com/sanctuary/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=11764 Troubleshooting I can't attach the Dollypop thighs, or they have a tendency to fall off. On a 48cm body or even a 50cm body, the thighs may easily detach. If your doll is 48cm, you'll need to buy a replacement knee joint. If your doll's 50cm or you already have said knee joint, adjust the "upper bone's" position -- pull out the upper rod from the knee joint and re-insert it more shallowly.
  8. Photographing 1/6 dolls is pretty fun so I thought I'd put my photos here for the convenience of collating it all into one place~ Also, there really aren't enough Marmit dolls around (the girls with the elf ears)! I'd love to add an Azone Tsubomi and a Noix de Rome elf to the crew one day! That's most of them! I only have 2 of these elf girls, the blonde one got a reroot and is now blue...but her hair really needs a cut and restyle since these pics, so maybe posting these will motivate me to do that. I also have to sort out their wardrobe...seriously, it's OBSCENE how many clothes and props they have.

    Pure Neemo Characters

    This is a topic for keeping up with the licensed character dolls in Azone's 1/6 line. --- Azone just announced a third character for its 1/6 line of Gochiusa dolls after wrapping up the 1/3 line a couple years ago. First, there was Chino, then there was Sharo. And now there's Cocoa. Hopefully, they'll do the full gang of 7 since I'd love to get a Maya one. (Previously)

    Orenjiina’s Photo Collection

    Hi there! I’m trying to be more active in the community and interact with my dolls more instead of just staring at them in awe everyday. So I thought I’d start trying to take more pictures of them. I am by no means a photographer and I know I’m in desperate need of some stands but I hope you’ll enjoy my little collection with me as we grow and evolve! Thanks! These are my Azone HAF Madoka Magica dolls. I bought both of these preowned through Surugaya. I only recently opened Sayaka and while she looks great, she was an absolute nightmare! Her plastic armor and shoes both had platicizer peak and the paint came off and stained everything. I had to use dream rescue on a few places on the doll and a stain pen to save her shirt, stockings, and cape. The blue of her outfit stained her arms too and I struggled to put her shoes on. On the other hand, Madoka was a dream! They’re both a bit big for me since I love the MDD size the best. Hence why I am shelling the PMMM girls as MDDs. I had previous shown Sayaka here. She’s pretty much done. I’m really happy with how she turned out. This is my first time showing Madoka though. Madoka needs a bit of work still. I want to update her faceup and trim and style her bangs. I also need to make or find a ring for her and paint her fingernail. Then she’ll be finished! Lastly, I have Mami but she’s far from finished. Her wig needs some love and I need to figure out how to make her spiral curls. Once I get a body for her I’ll be working on Homura as well and then a Kyoko further down the line. I also have more imminent plans for a Cardcaptor Sakura MDD as well. One day I’d like to tackle other magical girls too. MDDs are just the cutest!

    Azone 50 Leviathan

    Fastest delivery ever! It only took three days from Japan! (takes a little of the sting of the shipping costs away...) First order of business was a stain protection suit (yes, I am paranoid). Also, I added panties to the 'outfit' Will the cute little gloves stain her hands...? I have no idea how to put the cute boots on XD and I can't pull the stockings high enough to attach the strap. Also, the original horns gave me enough grief to use my own.
  12. Like it says on the tin - my first doll!! I've wanted an anime-styled doll for several years now, and I'm so excited to finally be the proud owner of one. I actually got her last week (feels like I've had her for so much longer), but I wanted to be patient about getting photo insertion privileges (lol) and also... I just hadn't gotten around to it until now haha. I've barely seen any talk about this series of dolls in the forum, so I thought it might be interesting if I described my experience with unboxing her and dressing her. If you want to skip all that you can go ahead and scroll down! Maybe I'll turn someone with only a passing interest into a fan lol. Without further ado then... First here is the front of her box. She is the direct store version! I found that the reason why the box is all wrapped up in plastic is because this is actually the slip cover for the actual box, which is plain white. An attempt was made to slide the cover back on the box after she was dressed and set up on my shelf, but that attempt failed and the slip cover ripped... it's a really tight fit. I was pretty upset about that. Anyway, Opening the box, lifting the bubble wrap to reveal her, and finally emptying the box of its contents: my doll, her wig, every last bit of her clothes, and the magnetic disk stand she comes with. So, about dressing her, I had a bit of trouble with this... I've said before that this is my first doll so I'm not sure what's typical, but when taking off her hands in order to put on her blouse, her right hand slid off like a dream, but her left hand was a nightmare to wrench off. She just didn't want to let go of it, and I accidentally ended up taking out the inner "bone" of her lower left arm before I finally popped that thing off. I was so afraid I broke her or something omg... I jammed that part back in, got her blouse on, and put her hands back on... and she seems fine, so hopefully she is. Also, her shoes! Her shoes are adorable, but putting them on her feet was a production in itself. I could barely get them on her! They felt like they were too small. I barely managed to get one of them on fully (with her heel actually in the shoe). The second one just wouldn't let her heel in and I let it be. I had some difficulty putting her wig on as well, but I'm willing to chalk that up to me just being new to this. Her wig was crooked the first time I put it on her, so I took it off her and put it back on and it was easier the second time (and not crooked). One more thing: almost all of the plastic pouches that her clothes individually came in ripped when I opened them. Have you ever tried removing the plastic film on a TV dinner, and it split apart instead of cleanly coming off? That's pretty much what happened. I thought that might be noteworthy. After (almost) all was said and done, here she is! I said "almost" because she is barefoot and notably missing her purse and cape as well. That magnetic disk stand is quite strong, even through her cute white knee socks, but her shoes have heels and of course the magnets aren't so strong as to work through them. As for her purse and cape: the purse was actually the only item I didn't really care for out of her set, and while I do like her cape, I'm just admiring her without it right now. Please be assured I do plan to put her cape on her at some point, as well as use a proper stand so she may wear her shoes! Also, please forgive the lighting: I have a good overhead light, as well as a window letting in sunlight, but my phone pictures are gonna look the way they're gonna look. That's it! I'm so incredibly happy with her. My pictures aren't the best, but I feel that simply no picture does her justice, especially her metallic eyes. I love having her on my bookshelf, I can just look up from what I'm doing and see her there. It's almost reassuring in a way... She's just so beautiful and lovely. She was absolutely worth it. I was thinking I would rename her to Flora... you can do that, right? Thank you for looking ~

    Meet Cara O'Reilly

    Hey everyone! So I guess this is where I post pictures of my doll... Here name is my username as she will most likely be the only one I have for quite a while. Anyway, her story is that she hales from County Cavan in Ireland. She is a high school student who has an interest in history and will be starting he final year soon. Here she is:
  14. So, my new (new to me, she is "used") Iris Collect Sumire arrived today, but after looking more into the clothing that is available or apparently the lack there of I'm worried that I will not be able to get any other outfits than the clothes she comes with. Does anyone know what clothes actually fit on the azo2 body? If I buy clothes for the DD/DDS will they fit despite the fact that the Dollfie is like 7cm taller? I'm just having some doubts about my purchase now... I'm currently at work so when I get home and open the box with her in it I'll probably not have doubts anymore especially since I'm coming from a recast minifee... Anyway, any information about where to look for clothes would be awesome!

    I'm going to be making stories about Cara's life and share her story. So here is the first one I've made where she is trying to read: Hope you enjoy, more to come!
  16. I'm not by any means a wig expert, but I feel I've been spoiled by starting with Azone wigs. I don't really know much of the technical details, but I can definitely feel the difference when compared to the standard volks wigs and a few cheaper wigs I've handled (not sure on brands, as they came bundled with heads). So, that in mind, does anyone have a favorite wig maker that has similar feel and quality to the Azone Beshine wigs? Specifically I'm looking for shoulder-length or chest-length light blond wigs. Heat-resistance isn't an issue for me, but I have noticed better quality wigs tend to be heat resistant regardless. I'm also not super worried about price if the quality is high - I don't mind paying a premium on a wig, since that's one of the most important parts of a doll for me. (Within reason of course ) Thanks in advance!
  17. I got 2 packages last week one from a proxy and one from a friend; just in time for my birthday. I'm skipping the box opening and straight to a shot of my new girls. Please welcome Sanae and Chino. More pictures soon! Cant get enough of the elf ears DSC_0195-01~2 by Sanshikidan, on Flickr

    Azone \ Obitsu 45cm-50cm

    My first post since the forum changed ... A month ago I received my 3rd character dolls from the anime : '' Is the order a rabbit ? '' ,. As we moved house last fall and I'm still working on my new studio , I haven't had the chance to open the 2 first ones but I was too excited to see Chino , I opened her box right away . I really love here , she is so cute . Her body is an Obitsu 45 cm ...even if they say it is Azone , I know what an Obitsu body looks like My girls were happy to welcome her , but she was a little shy ^_^ I'm glad the forum is more easy to use now . I'll try to post regularly here too . Salica
  21. Hello all! I have a small doll collection (a couple of Takara dolls, a Moxie Girlz and several EAH). And one of my first dolls was an Azone Hybrid figure of Nagato Yuki. Here she is wearing her uniform and some lingerie (don't know if doll nudity is allowed in this forum). She has a soft butst 27BD-F05N obitsu body. I posted her pictures in lingerie so I can ilustrate my problem a bit better before going into more detail. Yuki has been with me for 4+ until the other day her legs fell apart during a modeling session. The problem was a broken hip joint. I managed to take the broken pieces out of her torso and glue them back together. Here is the result of the operation: Despite the look of the pieces, they are pretty solid and I tested putting back them along with the legs, but without reassembling the doll. The legs and the joint seem to work. But there is a problem: How do I put the hip joint back in the torso?
  22. I finally have my first doll Kosagi is home, and I'm excited to share some of her pictures with you!:D She is just as cute as I could have ever hoped, and I'm allready grown very attached to her:D Here she is, I named her Uni, which means "Dream" in finnish. (She is Azone internationals Kosagi collaboration with Ronshuka couture) "Hey there everyone, nice to meet you:D" (I already made an instagram account to my dolls, but the pics here are linked through picuki.com, since I couldn't link through instagram directly. My dolls insta account is Uniandkajodolls, Kajo being my next doll once I get all of her parts together(she will be Dolce Myau head with parabox(obitsu) body 40cm)
  23. So my first vinyl doll, a Pureneemo Emotion with a standard eyehole-less Parabox head in white skin, is on its way to my place. And as I was sketching ideas for her, I thought... well, why make her boring? So I thought about what I could do with her. I really love the Smart Dolls with vitiligo... But they've bothered me for a while, as have most vitiligo dolls. Why do they only ever have a splotch on their face? The Barbie Fashionistas girl is the only one I've seen besides OOAK dolls that have it anywhere else on the body. And also never near the mouth, where I've noticed most people get it pretty prominently. It's always just one over the eye. So I've decided my Neemo deserves better. When I first get her, I'm probably not going to be able to do much, so the left image is a tentative design I'll be giving her while I get better at faces and doll modding. For the vitiligo mod, I'll be masking her body in specific places with tack or masking fluid, while she's assembled, then disassembling her entirely, finishing up the masking so that it's seamless, and then spraying her down with a deep brown vinyl dye. I'll then be using a dilution or acetone to get her palms and the soles of her feet to a proper, accurate color - this has always bothered me about black dolls, too. I haven't decided if I'm simply going to paint her eyes on or modify the head to feature eyeholes and a sculpted mouth. I'd really like her lips to be nice and full. The skin pattern above is just a tentative design and will probably be changed - I'd like it to stay true to the typical patterns you'd see on a real person, even though it's impossible for two to be the same. I was able to find a vinyl dye that will work on both the plastic and vinyl parts of the Pureneemo, so no visible joints should be mismatched with her body color... But if, after some testing, I find that the plastic won't match the color, I may just incorporate all the visible white plastic into her "spots". I also have a pack of extra hands, so hopefully I can get all her extra pieces to match each other. Very excited for my girl, and if she works well, I may start selling dolls like this. edit: I'd like to state for the record that I am neither POC nor do I suffer from vitiligo and this is not me attempting to be woke. I just think it'd be cool to do. If you believe I shouldn't be making a POC doll if I'm not POC, well... Noted. But I can't change myself any more than you guys can.
  24. Hey folks-- been a while since I've been around, but I thought I may as well show my face again given the (partial) reasons for my absence are now (mostly) complete...! These two are Aikawa and Roy. About a year or so ago, I started the very long and arduous process of turning them into custom dolls/figurines-- ones that look like the characters as I draw them. They're done enough to show off, though at some point in the near future they'll have more faceplates (currently, each of them has 3). Here they are pre-modding. I toyed with the idea of using a figma as a base for a while, but after realizing I probably wouldn't be able to dress them as I liked if I did so, ended up getting a Picco Danshi and an Assault Lily (since Azone makes such adorable 1/12 outfits-- no way am I willing to gamble on those fitting my dolls-- I want to be sure). They work really well with all the little Rements I have, which is fantastic for taking pictures, but is... not so great for my wallet. I'm very happy with how they pose. I ended up changing the bodies a bit to get Roy's height and Aikawa's build accurate (inspired by a user here-- elianti-- who went out of her way to really deeply customize her Obitsu girl), but luckily it hasn't limited their range of motion. I've got what amounts to a roombox set up for Aikawa, which I'll post here eventually once I get some pictures of her in it. PS: I mentioned a Polynian-- here she is, as promised! The cutie standing next to Aikawa here is Phoebe. She's a Polynian Iana, and I love her to pieces. A lot of the Picco clothes fit her! To quickly answer a few questions some may have: "Why do their noses look like that?" That's how I draw them. "What's Roy wearing on his legs?" Roy can't walk unassisted, so he wears an exoskeleton on his lower body to help him get around. "What are those things on Aikawa's temples?" Aikawa has eye augments that enhance her vision. The little sort of silver-y bits you see there house some of the necessary hardware. "What about your yokai girls?!" I still have them and very much love them-- I just switch gears often when it comes to crafting, and it can take me some time to come back to things.
  25. there's an artist i follow who typically makes custom DD/MDD hands (with painted nails and that sort of thing), but from a recent post of theirs on instagram it seems they may start making 1/6 scale hands intended for azone as well. since azone are based off obitsu bodies anyway, does anyone know if custom hands intended for azone would work for ob24 and similar bodies? it'd be really cool if i could pick some up for my parabox girls. (´∀`)♡
