She's finally here! After not moving in shipping for a little over two weeks, she finally started moving on closer! I was honestly terrified for when she arrived because I wasn't sure if she would be in better or worse shape than the confusing listing+photos... and it turns out things were much better than I was expecting! Manaka's school uniform is in perfect condition, doesn't even look used... The shoes are ugly but I mean they were in the photo listing anyways, so I don't care. Her wig is actually amazingly cute, and I'm going to use it a lot for her I think. There are stains on her but they're thankfully in very unnoticable places, and not too dark anyways so I'll probably try and fix those myself later on. The one thing that does bother me just a little is that her neck is super loose and her head can't really stay upright unless she is upright. Otherwise it just wobbles and flops- but I do remember reading something with the older dollfie heads and issues, so I'm wondering if that's whats up? I'm sure its fixable, and it doesn't bug me too much for the moment anyways. I also figure I should ask how to use the secret joint things for better posing on the DD2? I do actually like the body and I don't really have funds to replace it for now so I may as well learn how to make the best use of it! Now that the text block is over, here are some photos of my very first dollfie dream, Komaki Manaka! (btw I'm 100% never going back to resin now. Vinyl dolls are SOOOOO much nicer and this is after only a few hours with my first one LOL!) I also ended up buying her a cute bear costume on Mandarake... Because I LOVE bear girls and I wanted something that definitely wouldn't stain her so she could chill out in it for a while. It was cheap because it was missing some packaging and it's PERFECT. She's just waaaay too cute man! I can't believe she's just actually in front of me LOL Dunno why this pic is so... grainy? but AAAHH! I cannot contain my joy over HOW CUTE she is! I guess it really just was the crappy photos that Mandarake posted making her look SO yellowed. Her joints do have some yellowing but it doesn't bother me in the slightest. Overall, super worth it. So glad I took the risk and bought her because it worked out perfectly, she's my absolute favorite of my dolls from the moment that she arrived. I just love how well dollfies hold their poses T_T so perfect.
i really want to turn my upcoming Manaka into Chii from chobits. the problem is that i'm not sure whether i should stick her on the regular DD body, DDP body (i feel like it fits her face better), or a MDD body (i also think it fits, and damn its just so cute). body aside though, i need wigs and eyes.. and clothes.. every single time i buy wigs/eyes/clothes for my dolls, i get screwed over and end up with something completely different from the listing photos. i do check reviews to make sure what i'm buying at least looks a little like the listing, but i just seem to get royally screwed especially on wigs. it's not even a matter of the styling changing- but rather the material/texture used to make it, and the color. because of the fact that i've bought items so many times for my resin dolls and got what was essentially a waste of money, i'm super weary to buy stuff now and they all sit around with nothing.. sad. i don't want my dollfie to meet that same fate, and so would anyone have recommendations in mind based on personal experience? aside from stuff that looks like Chii, i'm also looking for wigs in black/brown- and eyes in brown/grey/blue.. but i really like the more dull and lifeless looking eyes that i see on lots of custom DDH01/DDH10. as for clothing, just anything fairly priced that wouldn't stain. sorry if this is a weird post or quite demanding but in all honesty i'm just so scared to shop for actual stuff for my dolls because it hasn't really ever ended well T_T (side note, i also have a few characters that i could stick onto manaka and if it's alright that i post those concepts here, i will in a reply)
