    Pencil&Acrylic Color question

    What are the shade names of the colors you use for your doll faceups? In acrylic paint and watercolor pencils. I’ve found some individual pencils sold by faber castell, but I’m not sure what colors are the most used.

    Tierparkzone's Doll Photos

    Instead of flooding the Photo Randoms thread, I guess it makes sense to create a new thread to put my photos. So to start off , here are a few nice shots I took a while back:
  4. Oculae

    Oculae's Hybrid Lab!

    My collection is pretty eclectic, but it's one I'm very proud of! Almost all of my dolls and parts are secondhand, with a couple of very rare exceptions that I'll point out as part of the doll's introduction! And every single one uses parts from other companies. First up is Eiran, my #1 favorite boy! He's a Smartdoll Eiji head in Milk, with a factory faceup that I added to slightly. An extremely lucky secondhand find from a collector on Instagram, who had originally got him directly from the outlet store from what Danny now calls the Chaos section! This head is currently with Synthetic Ephemera for a resin wig commission, so for the time being I'm using an unmodified Suzaku head for him: He was originally on an Obitsu 50 boy body, but another lucky secondhand find let me snag a like-new 55 body from the owner of a closed-down French toy store, which I then added 60cm arms and legs to in order to make a 60 boy. He uses Dollfie Dream, Smartdoll, and Obitsu 65 hands interchangeably depending on what hand pose I want, so depending on which hands he's using, he often reps all 3 major vinyl companies at once! Second is my oldest and most sentimental vinyl, Olive! She is a Gretel47 head (a rare purchase directly from Parabox) with an Azone frankendoll body consisting of the lower half of an AZM3 body, an Azone G bust, and Angel Philia B type arms. The AZM3 abs and the B's buff arms really give her a muscular, outdoorsy look that I love, a vast improvement from the stock Obitsu 50 body I had her on originally. The faceup is my own work, and if she looks a little like Smartdoll's Resilient, that's intentional! I bought her as my first specifically because I really wanted Resilient at the time, but she just financially wasn't doable for me, so I referenced her faceup to make my own! I like Olive a lot more than her inspiration now. ^^ Next is Erato, my demon girl! She's a DDH-01 custom on an Obitsu 50 body! As you can see, she uses DD hands as well. She's a nice low-budget alternative to a DDP, and wears the same size clothing! She's also the first and only resin character I had that I completely reshelled into vinyl when I switched over. Next is Ambrosia, the real owner of that Suzaku head Eiran's borrowing! He's another old character of mine shelled as a doll, and is on what I call my "desperation hybrid" body. When you find an Obitsu 65 torso on Mandarake but only have 60cm limbs available, you make do! I plan on seeing if I can get DD Dynamite thighs to work with the rest of his parts, their thickness would probably save him a bit from his sad "skinny legs" look. Poppy is next, and notable for being my first foray into modding my own heads! I bet you can guess what I did to her. 😉 She's a custom Gretel47 on an Obitsu 40 body with an Angel Philia flat bust. The head and body were purchased direct from Parabox, but the bust wasn't! Last, but certainly not least, is Euphemia, a hybrid with a resin head! She is a Doll Chateau Snowborn head on the old 3-part Obitsu 60 body before they switched over to the ball jointed version. She was another new purchase, and I'm extremely grateful Denver Doll Emporium had the head in stock after Snowborn was discontinued by the ccompany. Her body is secondhand from a collector on Ebay. I color matched her blushing and did her faceup myself, it was a real labor of love. If any other resin catches my eye, this is absolutely what I'm going to do with them, because the whole reason I went to vinyl was because of its rock solid posing! I have a few other dolls, but they're either in pieces and not in a good state for photographs, or in storage and not in a good state for photographs. I'll share them as they're made presentable again. I hope you enjoy my collection! 😄

    DD Miku's Leather Parts

    How do you deal with Miku's leather parts in her outfit? I noticed that it's starting to get sticky and has those cracks when it stretches.
  7. Does anyone have good sources for buying lolita dresses / JSKs for DD, especially M or L bust? I'm mainly thinking of the skirt-border-print type dresses, like this, this, or this. Not the solid colour lace-detail type dresses like the BTSSB collabs with VOLKS. I sometimes see them for MDD and have bought one in that scale for a resin doll, but I've only seen one for DD so far and couldn't find the seller. I was thinking of sewing them myself since even if there are ones for DD they probably don't fit L bust, but I'm not very good at sewing so it would be a bit of a learning curve for me. Not to mention custom-printed fabric is expensive! I know there are affordable doll-scale lolita print fabrics on Etsy so I'm surprised I almost never see this type of dress pop up for DD, but maybe there's just not a lot of interest?

    DD Meiko repaint

    I need to remember to share my faceups here more… 😓 I recently finished this repaint of a DD Meiko head. She was really fun to paint… she’s got a nice sculpt that could work for anything to be honest. I’m hoping to eventually buy her myself so getting the chance to repaint her was a nice way to figure out how I’d customize my own!
  9. Is anyone here preordering the Volks DD Miku Fuyuurara Outfit Set? It’s SO cute but I’m on the fence and that price is eek. Do you think it would fit Smart Doll? https://volksusastore.com/webstores/event/index.php?dispatch=pages.view&page_id=105

    Buying a DDS boy body?

    Sorry if this has been answered somewhere before, but how would I go about buying a DDS boy body? As far as I know, you can get them through dream choice with a head, but I don't really understand the process very well. Can you get it without a faceup, or is the faceup mandatory as part of the DC process? I'm not familiar with how to use a proxy. I want to plan ahead for a future custom, but I'm not sure how much I'd need to save for this. Do proxies charge you in JPY? Would the shipping costs be similar to buying a DD from say, Mandarake? (previously for me it was around $100, but I don't know if that's normal). Mostly I am just worried that I'll go into it thinking the process is simple only to be overwhelmed by a lot of steps, or underestimate the total cost. I wonder if it would be simpler to buy the body and head secondhand, or if that's more difficult?

    Emil's Garden

    Hello! I'm hoping to start a thread to show the dolls I've gotten (if that's alright!)~ Mostly DDs, but I have a few Smart Dolls I might get around to taking pictures of eventually 😄 Hopefully I'll have all of them posted here by the end of the month! (And hopefully I've figured out how to use Flickr by then... 😅) As of right now, everyone's using random wigs and eyes until I get their final ones in September (hopefully)! I'm trying to experiment with editing a bit on phone pictures according to each girl's style 😄 Here's Vera Lexington, my DDdy Towa! She likes lolita outfits and she'll probably have a big of a magical girl theme! She's wearing the Volks Peach Pink Lolita (?) DDdy outfit! It came with my secondhand D'Coord 😄 It's missing the hat, but it's still pretty cute! Her wig is this one from Volks! And her eyes are her defaults (Volks Animetic Type-J Akane 22mm) Sorry if the quality isn't that great 😦 I don't have my DSLR right now, but I'm honestly convinced my phone takes better pictures at this point since it's just an old Nikon D3300

    DDdy Yor Forger Arrival

    My Yor Forger arrived from Japan! I was not able to participate in the clickwar, but I got lucky that one proxy was able to get Yor for me. Apparently, it was the last stock in Yokohama Dolpa. Talk about lucky! Her ears are pre-pierced so that was really convenient. What I'm not too happy about is that this entire outfit set will surely stain. Overall, I think Yor is such a pretty sculpt!
  13. I saw these soft-vinyl DDS parts on Booth and they seemed really interesting! They are designed to allow for more flexibility/poseability. There's a preview video on Youtube demonstrating it. Would anyone know if these would they happen to be recasts (aka not ethical) or do they just happen to be original (aka ethical) 3rd party custom parts (in similar vein to silicone busts or jointed hands)?
  14. Hello! I was wondering if it's possible to have a Dollfie dream faceup that, while still anime, Is more realistic? I guess something like the Dollfie icon look but on a dream sculpt.
  15. Hi everybody! Now that she FINALLY has her wig and glasses, I'm back with another hybrid, one that I consider my personal magnum opus so far. Meet Sinclair! "Hi!" It might be hard to tell from this angle, but Sinclair is a very special hybrid - she's chubby! Like, ACTUALLY chubby. I've been wanting to make a mini-me for a long time, but considering I wear a size L everything, a normal Dollfie Dream or Obitsu just wasn't gonna cut it. I wanted my anime self to be realistic, so I turned to drastic measures: a wacky hybrid of Obitsu, DD, AP, and MDD parts, including a few subtractive mods and a hybrid frame. But more on the build in the next post. First, measurements! Sinclair is 47cm tall from head to foot, putting her at about the same height class as an AP or DDP. Her three measurements: Bust 24 cm, Waist 18 cm, Hip 26 cm. For pants, her thigh circumference is 16 cm, calf circumference is 10.5 cm, and her inseam is 18.5 cm. For shirts, her shoulders to her hips is 13 cm, and her arms are 15.5 cm long from wrist to shoulder. And since I measured it, from her hip to the bottom of her foot is 22.5 cm. Her thickest measurement is around both thighs, with her legs at their default position, and that's a whopping 28 cm! Her thighs are bigger than her hips and it's glorious. Not so glorious is the clothing options - she can only fit shirts that'll support a DD Large bust, but her arms are just slightly too short for tailored DD sleeves. Her thighs only fit SD pants, but even her thick calves drown in them...not to mention she needs like 10 more cm of height to get the fit just right. And her waist fits SD13 pants...and stuff that's intended to sit low on a DD's hips. So that's a no go for most DD pants. So far I've put her in two bottoms from DollDelights, some handmade SD capris, a handmade sweater, and a handmade handkerchief top all from Mandarake, and some SD Girl sized pants from Gavalloni Atelier, which fit nicely if you ignore the horrible fabric bunching at the ankles! Funnily enough, if it weren't for her waist, the official Angel Philia Office Lady pants I have were beautifully fitted on her. Perhaps if I get brave I'll try to make a pattern with them and adjust that. For now though, I'll plan on commissioning some pants and keeping a close eye on DollDelights for more cute stuff she can wear! Because this skirt is lovely. Her head is a DDH07, with a faceup and eyes by ねこまっしぐら (Neko Masshigura), and she has on a pair of Volks Jewelry Box glasses and a Dallas Doll Co wig. She uses DD hands and Obitsu 50 feet, my favorite hands and feet. The hybrid's got a pretty good color match - the only noticeable mismatch in tones is her shins, which have a pinker undertone than the rest of her. It barely shows up in photos, and is only really bad in person when she's in sunlight, so I don't mind it. The only major bummer about her is that she can't sit, due to a quirk in her construction that I'll get into. I'm not sure if that's something I'll ever be able to fix, either. We'll see.

    Grover864's Family Progression

    This will be where I post pics of the family. Mainly to help me see the changes through time of both the dolls appearances and photo skills. I'm starting off setting the bar really low. These are pics of Asumi trying out different wigs and outfits to find a look she likes.You can read more about her on her bio. Smartphone pics, minimal effort into posing, wigs not fresh from the salon and typically not even brushed, clothing not ironed, etc. I just couldn't wait to start trying. She first she had a go with an Angell Studio Blue Kite outfit and a Mimiel wig. The boots are Shoes Boutique, but no item codes. From this point on I don't have the make/manufacturer of the wigs or the clothing (aside from the pink Lingerie Box items that may or may not be visible.) I will update as I find the outfit information. She tried on this cute outfit and it fit like a glove. The wig had a nice gradient to it. Next she rocked some twin tails and a cozy winter outfit. She then wanted to try being a redhead She tried a strawberry blonde with some cargo shorts, a sleeveless tank and jacket She then took a break to relax. (No Asumi, I won't be joining you.) So she changed to a golden blonde and headed to the bath. After a quick bath, she relaxed a bit with Shirokuma Set-chan that arrived today. Asumi absolutely adores her so I let her keep playing while she went with blonde twin tails, a cute graphic crop tee and shorts. (Shorts were listed as a DDY, but fit well.) This is where she said she'd had enough of trying on different things for the day. Hopefully I can talk her into more soon. (The white sneakers are Shoes Boutique, but no item codes.)

    Uta from One Piece RED

    Hello everyone! It has been a very long time since I have discussed any of my dolls projects on the fourm. Usually I work on my own characters for a narrative I am in the process of writing, so I never feel like people would be interested enough in them to share, but I digress. This time around I am doing something completely different though! I feel like people would be very interested in seeing how she comes along and all the updates in the process of putting her together. So who is the lucky lady I feel like shelling into a doll? It's Uta from the new One Piece movie! Now as a disclaimer I know little to nothing about One Piece save for the main crew; but, I saw the new movie in theaters with my husband and family and I was blown away. It was fantastic, and I LOVED Uta. She made the movie for me. I wont say anything else about her, because spoilers are a no go in my book, but she is an awesome character. Awesome enough for me to want to shell. So what's the plan? Well the plan is to acquire a Smart Doll body on the second hand market, preferably milk skin tone, and go from there. Why Smart Doll? Because their legs are slender and long, much like One Piece legs (tm). I really have no idea what head sculpt to go after. A Nami would be perfect, but I am so, so scared for the after market prices and what people might do if I wipe her and paint her to resemble Uta instead. So, long story short, I need some help! What sculpts would you guys reccomend? Especially milk tone sculpts. I don't mind cinnamon, but really would prefer milk because she's a paler character. Some references of how her face looks from different angles. I am also ok with straying from her cannon face, so long as it looks close enough, like in the music videos for the soundtrack.

    MDD hybrid on a budget

    Couldn’t find a post about this so I decided to make one. I’m looking for a body for my MDD head but I’m on a budget. Can anyone recommend me something affordable?

    DDH23 Dream choice

    Never see this head anywhere online, looked all over for it. Here’s a picture of it for anyone who wants to see. hope I post this in the right category as I’ve never used this site ! https://imgur.com/a/5CRPKo9
  20. so i just found out that volks made a dollfie dream of chii from chobits in 2003 i believe and i cant believe it lol, the chii doll is so old and rare now, it would be a dream to actually own one from volks. what im doing is i have a semi white dd3 body and im getting a ddh-03 head to custom for chii. I will post pics when she arrives.
  21. Hello everyone! I just traded a head for a blank Uzuki Shimamura head, and the wonderful person I am trading with offered to give her a face-up. Problem is I am having trouble deciding what character I want to go with for her. I was wondering what you all would reccomend for her sculpt. Some ideas I had were a Miku based doll, a modernized Ren from DearS, Hakufu from Ikki Tosen (courtesy of @Tierparkzone), a magical girl of some kind, a fate character in the design of wada arco's art (I've been on a huge fate kick), or someone with a teal color scheme. I really would just love to see some options and what you guys would do with this lovely sculpt, to try and develop a plan with my trade partner. Any ideas are welcomed and appreciated. I just would love some cute design recommendations, character recommendations, or ideas just to get my brain flowing. Below is a picture of her head, with makeup so you guys can see what she looks like. Cheers and have a lovely week!

    Would watercolor pencils be ok to do a Dollfie Dream face with? Would they damage the vinyl? Would they not react well to sealant? I don't have great fine motor skills, and I don't feel comfortable using liquid paint to give my doll a faceup. Are watercolor pencils, or heck, even regular colored pencils a viable option?

    Just Another Nerdy Guy

    Hello! I'm Ryu, and I'm new to vinyl dolls. I've been a BJD servant collector since 2007. 😅 Years ago, I saw and fell hard for Hatsune Miku as a Dollfie Dream. I've wanted one ever since, so when the opportunity and the money made it possible, I jumped at the chance to get her! Now I'm waiting for her to arrive! I'm your typical nerdy guy who loves cute things. I'm into Doctor Who, Vocaloids, Sci-Fi. Fantasy, Horror, anime, RPG Video Games, Paganism, and other nerdy things. I'm also an Old School Goth/Gothic Otaku. Glad to be here and eager to make new friends! Ryu

    I Have Some Questions....

    I'm new to the world of vinyl dolls, and I just got Hatsune Miku, my first Dollfie on December 28th. I have some newbie questions, I hope that you all don't mind answering. Are Dollfie faceups sealed? Is there some substance I should avoid, like isopropyl alcohol or nail polish? If they touch her, will she melt? I'm asking that because I would like to give Miku her classic bangs, and I was considering using hair gel, but not if it'll melt her face! I'm really reluctant to take her wig off, since it was a fight to get it on her head. Should I use white glue instead? I was told that vinyl dolls don't yellow even in the sun, is that true? Do they have a low temperature range I should avoid? I'd love to take her out and do a photoshoot in the snow...when we get some. (Climate change sucks!) Is there a top heat range I should also worry about? I'm guessing leaving her in a hot car is also a no-no. I know that there are high and low temp limits with resin BJDs, but I've taken mine out in the snow and on a sunny summer beach with no problems. How often will I need to take her apart and tighten her? I play with her pretty often, right now she's sitting next to me watching me type and watching music videos. I often watch TV/movies with my BJDs as well, especially late at night. I'm sure I'll think of other questions, and when I do, I'll probably ask them in this thread. Feel free to link me to threads that may answer my many questions. Thank you everyone! Ryu
  25. After a lot of procrastination I'm finally going to create a place for all my girls photos. I have been a little extra horrible at giving them proper attention lately, so I am hoping this will keep me in check. I don't usually take enough photos at once for full photo set posts so this makes the most sense. Anyway, the weather is finally improving a smidgen, so Saber and Miku went out on the deck this afternoon! I'm so ready for more consistent nice weather, this winter was way toooo long.
