  1. >The first page in this post is now a FAQ about all dolls related to VMF50, Angel Philia, Yamato, Arcadia, RealArtProject, Dollcore, Pink Drops, etc< *This thread contains photos of naked and scantily-clad dolls, and some photos may be implicitly sexually suggestive, so please view it at your own discretion.* For the purposes of this FAQ: If I talk about "VMF Dolls" it refers to any of the above kind of dolls unless otherwise specifically noted. This is because although there are now different brands/lines of these dolls, most of the information is relevant (useful) to all of them. Likewise, you can substitute where I wrote about "Yamato" for "Arcadia" or "R.A.P." when i am referring to the dolls in a general sense and not specifically talking about one particular doll. A lot of the information about these dolls on the first couple pages of this discussion thread is either A) out of date or B) wrong, since not much was known about them here when I started the thread last year. So please read the FAQ or ask a question in the most recent pages of the thread to get more accurate and correct info. If you find inaccurate information in the FAQ or have news and pictures that I haven't added, either post it in the thread or PM it to me, and I will add it if I think it's appropriate. Quick Explanation of VMF-type dolls: VMFs are 48-50cm height dolls that use the Obitsu skeleton as a base internal frame. They started out as lightly-modified Obitsu body and face sculpts, some of which had painted eyes, but quickly changed to become more heavily-modified sculpts that use a wig and interchangeable eye system. Unlike the default Obitsu 48-50 body, VMF dolls have different sculpted proportions and body shapes despite being exactly the same on the inside of the doll. They were first produced by the company "Yamato" under the name "VMF50". Yamato also had a collaboration with a side-company called "RealArtProject" which made a line of dolls together under the name "Dollcore". In 2013 Yamato rebranded themselves as "Arcadia" and started a new line of VMF-type dolls called "Angel Philia", but they continue to work with RealArtProject on a new sideline of dolls, which are now called "Pink Drops". (sidenote: i believe that RAP is actually copyrighted to or owned by in Arcadia in some way, but can not confirm this) This FAQ contains more detailed information on the differences between these dolls, how to buy them, etc. Disclaimer: Information may not always be up to date, and the FAQ itself is still an incomplete WIP. Official links are below. You can find unofficial links throughout the FAQ and near the end of it: http://angel-philia.com/ (Angel Philia official mainsite & website shop) http://arcadia.ac/ (Arcadia official website) http://ameblo.jp/tommy-ac/ (official Angel Philia blog) https://twitter.com/ANGEL_PHILIA (Angel Philia twitter) http://thewonder.it/Tommy (AP photos and previews) http://realartproject.x.fc2.com/index.html (RealArtProject official mainsite) http://realartproject.cart.fc2.com/ (RealArtProject official webshop) aya-p by ___rei, on Flickr (Doll Type: VMF50 Shiho, photo is taken by me, of my own doll) 1 - What makes VMF dolls so special? What are they like? They are vinyl (soft plastic) dolls that use the Obitsu 48- and 50- cm inner-frame (plastic skeleton) and are made from modified Obitsu parts. The designers at Yamato (now known as Arcadia, affiliated with R.A.P.) design modifications to the dolls' body and head sculpts, and then the Obitsu company manufactures the special modified parts on behalf of Arcadia and RAP. This means that many VMF dolls have unique faces or body types and shapes which are copyrighted to the respective companies and artists involved in their design. The earlier, prototype VMFs were a lot less modified and some of them used almost all default Obitsu parts, but the later-on productions have increasingly modified face and external body appearance, despite still technically being Obitsu-type dolls. The default Obitsu 50cm internal frame looks like this - (although it should be noted, hands and feet are easily removable and interchangeable despite the indication of the photo) - (ref photo was taken from http://www.junkyspot.com) Most recent VMF-type dolls (the Angel Philia and Pink Drops lines, as well as some of the Dollcore and the last VMF50 Original Concept Girls) now use the 48cm skeleton, but the difference is very marginal and should only affect part-swapping in a minor way, depending on if you want to customize your doll's body shape or not (more details on that later). VMF dolls caught my attention after I saw photos of VMF50s on a Japanese image board. I thought their faces were really fun and beautiful, and now that I own several, I can vouch for the fact that their bodies are very sturdy, versatile and posable as well as being more detailed than default Obitsu types: Most VMF dolls come with make-up and full body blushing by default, and their individual proportions of their bust, torso, legs, and in some cases the arms and feet, are sculpted differently to the default Obitsu 48-50 blank body, in a stylized manner. They also do not break as easily as resin dolls such as BJD, and the Obitsu inner frame is (in my opinion) superior to the DD/MDD internal skeleton in quality due to it's sturdiness and feeling of being more structurally sound and balanced. None of my VMF dolls have yet suffered the looseness or "floppiness" that can occur with some DD bodies, and definitely have not had any internal breakages like the MDD body is notorious for. Only time will tell if they hold up to this, but overall I consider the Obitsu body to be my preference. Because they use a plastic skeleton and not an elasticated system, they are also better at holding poses and standing unassisted (*with the exception of dolls using the "High Heel" feet option - these usually require stands unless you swap out the HH feet parts for flat feet or put them in shoes with wide, thick, flat soles), so for the purposes of display or photography they're also very convenient and enjoyable. 2 - What size and shape are VMFs? How can I customize them? What special features do they have? As the name implies, when they were first marketed as the "VMF50" line, the majority of the dolls were ~50cm in height. Later on in production (shortly before the brand name change) the company experimented with using 48cm Obitsu frames and mostly gives preference to using this frame now. One thing that differentiates VMFs from other equivalent Obitsu-type dolls is that their outer parts are manufactured to different sizes than standard Obitsu parts (despite maintaining being proportionate to the O48/50 frame - they have to be in order to fit it, of course) You can part-swap any part of a VMF that you can part-swap on the default Obitsu frame: This means their heads, bust, arms, hands, hips, legs, and feet are all interchangeable. However, because of the modifications made to the parts, you should look at the part-swapping image chart & guide if you intend to do this: > http://i.imgur.com/0b8ORkF.png < (The chart is updated periodically by me and also contains some useful notes to help with understanding the differences between the dolls) The other reason it is important to account for the different "sizing" of VMF outer parts is that different dolls will require differently-sized clothing depending on the proportions (width/cirbleepference) of their individually modified parts. There is a guide to clothing your doll according to her body shape and parts later in the FAQ. For the purposes of reference, all VMF parts (including their heads) are referred to by different letters and numbers (see the chart above for more info on that). VMFs are also available in special tan skintones as well as the default Obitsu "white" skintone, which is another thing that separates them from the standard Obitsu-type doll. All VMFs, with the exception of some early releases and the "Super Sonico" dolls, have an interchangeable eye system and wear wigs in a size 7~8 (this will vary slightly depending on the wig brand, elasticity of the band, and whether you use a wig cap or not. technically they have an average head cirbleepference of 7"). Also with the exceptions of some "special sets" and some of the older dolls, you can expect most VMFs to include the following when purchased as a fullset box: Doll, complete with body blushing, default company face-up, one pair of colored eyes (plastic, usually Obitsu/Parabox brand), and at least 1 pair of "option hands" in a different pose. Most VMF dolls use default Obitsu feet, which contain magnets. If the doll comes with Obitsu magnet feet, then a magnetic stand is also included in the box. Lately, they have sometimes used "High Heel" feet in place of Obitsu magnet feet, and the variety of option hands included with newer releases may be different to those included with older releases. Because the hands and feet are interchangeable, you can buy different ones if you do not like the ones that come by default, but note that if a doll comes with "High Heel" feet then she will *not* include the magnetic flat feet as an option part and will not come with a stand. These must be acquired separately. It is not standard for a fullset box to include any clothing or wigs, with certain exceptions, such as special character dolls or special release versions, etc. Going back to their height - kymaera has provided a great size comparison photo featuring his VMF50 Nao doll. Nao has the Type E body, 3rd from left - 3 - Where can I buy VMF50 dolls? How much do they cost? On average you can expect to pay $450~$650 for a doll if you are buying it directly from the company (prices vary per doll, and may also depend on S&H, additional proxy fees, tax, customs fees, etc). Most VMF dolls and accessories/clothing products are limited runs. Some sell out faster than others, and rarely there will be a reproduction run, but otherwise they may all be considered "limited edition". It is now frequent for them to also make "variant" editions of some dolls (for example: there may be a doll with the same or similar face sculpt as another, but different make-up, skintone, or body type, or some other modification to differentiate it). In general it is wise to consider that stock availability of everything officially manufactured is fairly limited. This means that prices of popular dolls and items may rise on the second-hand market over time, according to demand and rarity, and that the second-hand market is the prime way to acquire a sold-out doll, outfit, or accessory. Of the ~5 dolls I currently own, only one of them is not second hand, and I purchased her during a company reproduction run (which very rarely happens). If you spend a lot of time checking on Yahoo Japan Auctions (aka YJA / YAJ), you can sometimes find auctions for dolls with a starting bid of around 20,000 JPY (roughly $200). Depending on if the doll is in high demand or if a bidding war breaks out, the end price of these auctions might be around 30~40,000 JPY on average, but rarely ever goes higher than that. as a rule of thumb, i would consider any doll that you can find for under 30k yen to be a "good deal". Some dolls will simply not drop in price very much at all though, or may even raise in price. There are certain VMFs that you can't realistically expect to pay less than ~$800 for unless you get a very lucky deal or buy the split part of the doll you want (such as the head) and then buy a compatible body or body parts separately to construct her. Mandarake also stocks second-hand VMF dolls. These tend to be closer to (or in some cases, slightly above) retail price, but Mandarake items tend to usually be in very good condition even if they are marked as used or second hand. If you don't live in Japan, you'll probably need a proxy service to buy anything off YJA, but Mandarake will ship internationally without any kind of middleman needed. The official Arcadia/RAP web shops listed at the start of this FAQ also require use of a proxy service to place an order. If you don't have a proxy service or can't get one, VMFs sometimes appear on Ebay, but they tend to have a higher price mark-up and limited selection of dolls available. HLJ (HobbyLinkJapan) is another site you can order from without needing a proxy. They're currently clearing out their stock of old Yamato/VMF items and it is currently unknown if they will restock with Arcadia/RAP dolls and items, so stock may be limited at this time. I have seen (and once purchased) VMF dolls advertised internationally on the Den of Angels Marketplace, Flickr, Figure.FM,and some other general anime/figure websites may carry them from time to time if you keep an eye out. Finally: If you have a proxy service that allows you to purchase from Taobao (a Chinese marketplace website similar to Japan's Rakuten) then I have seen some VMF dolls appear on Taobao from time to time. I have never purchased a doll from a Taobao seller but "recast" or "fake" VMF dolls do not exist, so that should not be a concern, although you may have to deal with markup pricing. Note - I have received questions about how to use "proxy services" multiple times now. Although there is already plenty of information on the general DollfieDreams forum regarding proxy services (due to the fact that many people use these services to buy DDs), I wrote up a post in this thread with a short guide to what a proxy is and the pros/cons of using such a service. You find that post here - http://www.dollfiedreams.com/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3723&start=150#p105781 4 - Where can I buy clothes, shoes, and accessories that fit my VMF50? How should I choose what to buy? Yamato/Arcadia and R.A.P. have produced full lines of accessories, wigs, clothes, shoes and other sets for their dolls (available on the official and above mentioned websites), but these can range from fairly to extremely expensive ($40~$100 per item, including minor items such as props) and are also usually tailored to a 'niche' style - VMF dolls are primarily marketed as being 'sexy' dolls, and most official clothing and accessories reflect this brand image. It is notable that R.A.P. tends to sell what are sometimes explicitly sexual and more risque items from time to time, while Arcadia/Angel Philia sells more toned down, suggestive yet not quite as 'fetishistic' outfits. If the clothing styles of the official brands or the pricing puts you off, have no fear. This part of the FAQ will guide you to alternative options if you are looking for a lower price and/or different style for your doll. Regarding official items: I own a few of them from 2012 (Yamato produced), and the quality is what I would describe as "average" (I cannot comment on any quality changes in 2013). Their high pricing can be justified due to their limited availability, and also the fact that they are often fairly unique designs "exclusively made" to fit the dolls, but the actual quality (fabric, sewing, craftsmanship) of the items is not exceptionally better or notably worse than many other brands of doll clothing & items from other companies or stores. If you see an outfit or accessory that you feel you can't find anywhere else in the correct scale for your VMF doll, I recommend buying it as long as you don't mind the price - the money goes towards supporting the companies, and they do have to make a profit or else there is no incentive to keep producing the merchandise and dolls. However, if you see something that isn't very unique, I recommend looking for a cheaper alternative elsewhere, as it may be possible to find something similar with a near-correct fit for half the price at a similar level of quality. Since I already linked to where you can buy official clothing at the start of the post (note: aside from their webshops, some international sites I mentioned such as HLJ and Mandarake carry a selection of official goods, and these also appear on YJA sometimes) the other links in this FAQ will point you in the direction of alternative clothing and accessory options. *Important Note*.When purchasing clothing for your girl, always consider her body type and whether the fabric the clothing is made of is stretchy or not, and whether any waistbands, sleeves, etc are elasticated! Depending on the item itself compared to the body type of your doll, clothing that may fit one type of VMF could be impossible to get on another. Also consider the height of your doll in relation to the design of the item of clothing - I have fitted items on my dolls designed for 40cm - 60cm DD/BJD/etc, but it entirely depends on what type of item the clothing is and how it is made and cut that determines a fit or not. If you have any light sewing skills, it's also easy to modify a lot of clothing to fit. Below is a guide to which dolls have which body types and their respective measurements. It currently only covers VMF50s - it will be updated soon to cover Dollcore, Pink Drops, and Angel Philia dolls, and hopefully include much more detailed information. < This is on my 'To-Do' List. In the meantime, I took all the info below from http://leonellalovesdolls.blogspot.com/. It matches up to the dolls that I personally own, so it can be considered fairly accurate. The list is sorted by body type, and below each type the names of the corresponding dolls can be found. --- Type A ~50cm Bust: 24cm, Waist: 13.8cm, Hip: 21.2cm, Thigh: 15.1cm Super Sonico Mascot Super Sonico Tiger Type B ~50cm Bust: 23cm, Waist: 13cm, Hip: 21.9cm, Thigh: 14.6cm Kan'u (Ikkitousen) Nurse Kan'u (Ikkitousen) School Uniform Miu (Original Concept Girl #1) Miu (Original Concept Girl #1 - Tan Skin) Miki (Original Concept Girl #3) Type C ~48cm Bust: 19.5cm, Waist: 13.8cm, Hip: 21.5cm, Thigh: 13.6cm Sayo (Original Concept Girl #10) Type C1 ~48cm Bust: 16.8cm, Waist: 13.8cm, Hip: 21.5cm, Thigh: 13.6cm Mako (Original Concept Girl #11) Kana (Original Concept Girl #12) Type C11 ~48cm Bust: 24.7cm, Waist: 13.8cm, Hip: 21.5cm, Thigh: 13.6cm (approx.) Miko (Original Concept Girl #13) Type D ~50cm Bust: 20.8cm, Waist: 12.3cm, Hip: 20.5cm, Thigh: 13.5cm Risa (Original Concept Girl #2) Type E ~50cm Bust: 21cm, Waist: 12.2cm, Hip: 21cm, Thigh: 14cm Yumi (Original Concept Girl #4) Nao (Original Concept Girl #6) Eri (Original Concept Girl #8) Type F ~50cm Bust: 19.5cm, Waist: 12.1cm, Hip: 21.7cm, Thigh: 14.2cm Ami (Original Concept Girl #5) Miho (Original Concept Girl #7) Type G ~50cm Bust: 24.7cm, Waist: 13.0cm, Hip: 22.5cm, Thigh: 14.5cm Shiho (Original Concept Girl #9) ----- Note that the first VMF girl ever made, a character doll of Lynn Minmay, apparently uses an unmodified Obitsu50 body and doesn't appear to have an altered body type like the other dolls. Also note that dolls which aren't part of the "Original Concept" line are usually character dolls based on existing franchises. The good news is that VMFs all take the same shoe size (note - the new dolls with special High Heel feet may be an exception to this, currently unconfirmed, but otherwise the majority of them have a default Obitsu foot measurement) and all dolls should take roughly the same wig size (as stated above, a 7~8 wig is recommended, but fit may vary depending on the brand and wig type) Plenty of off-brand shoes and wigs fit. I mostly use wigs from the Monique Gold brand, but i also have several Dollmore & Crobidoll wigs that work. Any shoes designed to fit Unoa, Minifee, and Dale Rae all are usually a confirmed fit as well. Below is a copy/pasted (now edited) post of mine from later in this thread that provides all the information on unofficial VMF size clothing I can provide right now: Janeway asked me what type of clothing would fit her Type F body doll. I have a Type C doll (Sayo) who has very similar measurements to Type F (i mistook her for Type F until i actually checked the measurement charts since the difference is extremely minimal) Type F, C, and C1 are the slimmest body types as of updating this, as a result they are more likely to fit into clothing for <50cm height dolls. For dolls with larger chests and the more curvaceous body types with wider hips and thighs, please keep in mind that they are more likely to take 50cm< clothing unless the <50cm clothing you choose is very stretchy or baggy. If you are dressing a doll in a shirt, bra, or most kinds of skirts and dresses, you can remove her arms from their sockets (this takes <10 seconds to do and they slot back in firmly yet easily) and slip it over her head. However, if you want to put any items such as panties, regular pants or shorts, or certain skirts & dresses on the doll by putting them on over her legs, they must be able to fit around the widest part of the doll's lower half - which surprisingly, is not her hips or her butt, but actually her upper thigh area (example pic coming soon). VMF dolls can be recognized by the unusual sculpting of their thighs. The upper thigh curves out widely from the hip joint to create the aesthetic appearance of a curvaceous "thigh gap", and cannot be slotted in and out with the same ease as the arms. I have a few skirts that would fit my dolls around the waist perfectly, but because they are not elasticated, they cannot stretch over the upper thigh area without risk of being ripped or torn. This is why elasticated, stretchy material is preferential when picking your outfits. List of US/English websites that stock clothing/accessories/wigs that fit VMF dolls (note that not all sites guarantee fit especially because some will only fit certain VMF bodies - therefore mileage may vary. Read the comments and do your own research or ask a question in this thread if unsure about a product you want to buy): http://www.hlj.com/- Aside from clearing out their old VMF50 official goods stock, this site carries other brands of clothing for ~50cm height dolls. Use the keyword search "50cm" or "Obitsu" in the correct category and then check the box to show only available items, as they almost never delete things that are permanently out of stock. You may want to keep it unchecked if you want to look at their items on backorder though, and if you explore the site you may find they sell clothing for slightly shorter or taller dolls as well that may be a potential fit. I've bought from HLJ a lot over the years and they have always provided me with a good reliable service. http://www.parabox.jp/eng_new/ - I purchased from Parabox once recently and was really happy with the quality of everything I bought (which included wigs and clothing). They're an official dealer for Obitsu products and you will find plenty of things that fit VMF dolls here. http://www.amiami.com/ - I get my anime figure pre-orders every month from AmiAmi and they are very reliable as a business. Use they keyword search "50cm doll" to find their clothing, although like HLJ, you can look at clothing in slightly different height ranges if you can find it. http://www.ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/shop/en/ - i'm probably one of Mandarake's most loyal customers and like HLJ they stock obitsu and vmf50 items; use the keyword オビツ to find Obitsu clothing, and type vmf50 in English to find dolls and accessories relating to VMF dolls. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/doll/ - i never actually purchased from Hobby Search but they have a really wide selection of clothing that should fit. look at the sidebar and you will see at least 3 categories for ~50cm clothing. like HLJ and AmiAmi they do not delete out of stock items from the website and many items are so popular you have to reserve them or pre-order them. http://www.dollmore.net/ - in general all Dollmore clothes are made for "slimmer but not *slim*" SD/MSD type dolls unless it's their Model doll line. i have ordered from them many times and most of their standard MSD clothing fits, but some of it does not (mostly i've had good luck, but sometimes the fabric of the material changes the fit). luckily, they list the measurements in CM for almost every item of clothing, so just check these measurements against your girl. if the clothing is stretchy, it is a very likely fit (i purchased MSD capri leggings for my MiniFee dolls from them and the same leggings fit my Type C Sayo - they will be too small for a doll with wider measurements though) on page 1 of this thread kymaera posted showing his VMF50 Nao doll (Type E) wearing 3 Dollmore MSD outfits and they fit very well on her, but please note that they were made of stretchy material. http://www.dollheart.com/- I ordered 2 pairs of DH shoes, and found that one pair was an "almost perfect" (slightly but barely noticeably oversize) fit, and that the other pair technically fit (due to being a pair of long boots) but was actually scaled to a doll with larger feet. so be warned that while in general you will probably get a fitting pair of shoes, sizing may vary with design. DollHeart wigs (i own 2 as well) are good quality and can fit VMFs, but the sizing will always be a tiny bit off. If you buy the 6.5-7.5" wigs, you will REALLY need to stretch out the elasticated band to get it on the doll's head, and you cannot use a wigcap, but it does work. If you buy the 7.5-8.5" wig, they will be a tiny bit too big, but if you trim the bangs and use a wigcap will be a perfect fit. They also fit and look fine without a wigcap too, but be warned that they will slip off easily due to being ever so slightly too big. I personally prefer the larger size, but purchase at your own risk. I have been told that DollHeart MSD clothing can fit some VMF dolls but can not confirm this right now. http://www.etsy.com has a lot of stuff too; just do some searching (use keywords like MSD or even 'slim MSD' depending on what you are looking for). if the measurements of clothing are not shown, it is a good idea to contact the store owner and ask for the measurements, and in many cases Etsy sellers will do custom adaptions or commissions scaled to the measurements of your doll if you request them politely. Etsy prices and policies obviously vary from individual store-to-store. you are also free to look on Ebay - sometimes searching for "VMF50" will yield slightly marked up but specially fitted clothing as well as the occasional doll. some of the specific Etsy/Ebay stores you can see my dolls wearing fashion from in this thread are - http://www.etsy.com/shop/TNTdollclothing - i own shirts & tops from this store in their MSD size and they fit both my Type C (very slim) and Type G (curviest VMF50). their MSD pants will fit bodies with the smaller and slimmer hip/thigh measurements ONLY. http://www.etsy.com/shop/beachgirlnikita- one of my favorite US doll clothing makers, i buy clothes from her for all my dolls a lot (and her fur wigs too). however, not all of her clothing will fit VMF type dolls. again i recommend asking about the size measurements of an item if it interests you. her fur wigs tend to be of very good quality, but are not always a 100% perfect fit on a VMF (they are hand sewn and i have noticed sizing can vary somewhat, plus fur wigs are usually not elasticated) BNK also has an Ebay store under the same name if you prefer to use Ebay, and is a very friendly person to buy from. http://www.etsy.com/shop/violetheavensky - I adore her (MSD size) shirts and stockings, as well as her knit/crochet hats for MSD which fit over most of my wigs snugly but perfectly. Everything I have bought from her fits both my C (slim) and G (curvy) type dolls. You can see my dolls wearing hats, shirts and stockings from her later in this thread. http://stores.ebay.com/releaserain- Go to their "MSD Unoa" section for shoes that fit. I do not know if their MSD clothing fits or not, but I love their shoes. I have only had 1 pair out of about 8 pairs i bought not fit (they were slightly too big). All others were perfect fit. update: releaserain now has an etsy store as well, just do a search for their name to find the link. obviously, if you have a proxy, there is a treasure trove of stuff on Yahoo!Japan which includes a mix of official and unofficial clothing items and accessories. Keywords you can use when searching Japanese shop and auction sites to find dolls and (possibly) compatible clothing include (separated by comma): VMF, VMF50, UNOA, ユノア, 50cm, 48cm, VISUADOLL, Obitsu, オビツ, RealArtProject, Pink Drops, Dollcore, Angel Philia, AP The Japanese word for "doll" can be spelled as 人形 or ドル. Search results may change depending on which spelling you use, and sometimes they even use the English "doll". So "50cm doll" "50cm ドル" "50cm 人形" etc could all give different hits. Keywords such as DD, DDdy, MSD will sometimes yield good results but be very careful when buying, as many of these items will not fit your VMF unless you check the measurements with the seller or read them on the auction page, and descriptions of the item are often vague. note: Japanese like to list a lot of items under the English (romanized) name, but sometimes sites like Mandarake or sellers on YJA either mis-spell the name or only use the Japanese name (if there is one- for example, VMF50 is never spelled using Kana). As above, sometimes searching in English will yield different results to searching the same word or name in Japanese. List of other "non-official" Japanese websites that sell clothing and other items suitable for VMFs (note that when prices are mentioned, these do not factor in shipping, proxy fees, customs tax, etc): http://www.addamstown.net/webshop/ - they manufacture unique and limited runs of clothing specifically fitted to different VMF body types, aside from also regular MDD/DD/DDdy clothing (some of which may also fit certain VMFs). Prices can range from 3,000-9,000 JPY per outfit usually. http://tcdoll.shop-pro.jp/ - many 50cm doll outfits, most of which are tailored to VMF50 bodies. (also sell clothes for DD etc). Average prices are 4,000-6,000 JPY per outfit. http://doll.shop-pro.jp/ - looking for unique wigs? This site sells wigs for many types of dolls, but specifically has a category made to fit 50cm dolls and frequently uses VMFs as models. The category name is "7inch(オビツ50)ウィッグ". Other categories marked as 7 or 8 Inch are probably not a guaranteed exact fit. Prices for VMF wigs are usually around 3,100 JPY. http://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/tougenkyou/tokubai/doll.html - the webshop of "Visuadoll", which is actually another Japanese brand of modified Obitsu 50 dolls (though difference in appearance and aesthetic to VMFs). They also manufacture their own special clothing. Since their clothing is meant to fit O-50 bodies, many of it is compatible with VMFs. http://www.cuties.co.jp/ - make a variety of doll clothing, but specifically have a section that caters to 50cm "slim" VMF/Obitsu type dolls. Limited selection, mostly underwear sets, bikinis, and basic underwear or lingerie such as pantyhose. http://beface.shop-pro.jp/- limited selection of what appear to be OOAK, hand-sewn, full outfits for 50cm/VMFs as well as other dolls. prices are around 15,000 JPY for an outfit. a few more tips for fitting to different body types - VMF dolls that are very busty with wide hips are capable of wearing most DD and SD size clothing without issue. my Type G Shiho wears lingerie for the Dollfie Dream Dynamite bust (note: while DDdy bras fit her near-perfectly, DDdy panties are oversized), and she also wears leggings, dresses, and bikinis from Coolcat-Coolcat - http://us.sk-coolcat.com/front/bin/home.phtml - all of which were made with Dollfie Dreams in mind. Sidenote: If you have a proxy service, there's sometimes a larger and cheaper selection of Coolcat items on YJA. Remember that due to their height, VMF50 have shorter legs and arms than SD and DD dolls. if you are buying long stockings, pants or want a shirt or dress that has long sleeves, it is better to buy clothing specifically for dolls below 60cm to avoid buying something that is over-sized. VMF dolls that are slim such as the F & C Types can often get away with wearing more MSD or MDD sized clothing. If buying an item with long sleeves, you may want to check the sleeve length, as VMF arms are ever so slightly longer than many MSD/MDD arms. The same applies to pant length if buying long pants. Final word of warning though.... If dressing them in thin fabrics, pad their nipples!. It varies from doll to doll, (bust type and shape often are drastically different) but some VMFs have VERY pointy nipples (I'm not kidding). There are a few exceptions to this, but it mostly holds up. I had a thin fabric shirt ruined after my Shiho doll poked a hole in it with her nips. To prevent this: I use a piece of bandage with a safety pin sometimes, but any thick fabric or fitting bra made from padded material should also help prevent damage to delicate clothing. As long as you don't leave them on for too long (to avoid sticky "bandaid residue" being left on your doll, although if this happens just wipe them down with a wet cloth), 2 square cut-outs from a bandaid can serve as a makeshift pair of pasties. If for aesthetic reasons you want the nips to show through a thin piece of clothing (as seen in some official promo shots), be aware that the clothing may be semi or permanently damaged by this over time, especially if it is extensively worn or if it is very tight. 5 - As mentioned, there's currently some missing information and a few minor info points that need to be changed in this post. I'm editing it to be more up-to-date when possible. Have any more questions? Please ask away and either I or someone else who checks this thread will do our best to answer. If you want view the latest news and discussion, I recommend going to the final pages of the thread. If you're unsure about a Japanese-website purchase, you can also ask for help with that as long as you make sure your question was not already answered in this FAQ or the post about proxy services.
  2. 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:

    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. After a whole year of waiting, I finally got the box containing my Dollzone Zero fullset in grey resin! She's the first fullset I've ever owned, and aside from some rushed paint jobs on her accessories, she's absolutely beautiful and well worth the cost and the wait. I ordered her through Alice's Collections, so I also got a free outfit for her due to an event they were having at the time. I'm glad I did, because her fullset outfit qualifies as a waterproof apron and that's about it. Totally see-through. Alice's Collections also contacted Dollzone to see if I could swap her default body out for a different one, and they allowed it! I'll be painting this clockwork heart she has myself, and I'm glad I swapped because it works perfectly on her. She uses a faceplate system, but her faceplate extends out behind her head a little bit, so you can't lay her down flat without her face trying to pop off. Annoying, but I can deal with it. The wing thingies on the back of her head are magnetic, as are the antennae and mask on the front of her head. The magnets ROCK, they're extremely strong and keep all pieces on securely - even the wings! Speaking of, those snap into the black frame underneath to form hinges, they're not magnetized at all. Which is great, because they're much more secure and easily posed that way. She's strung beautifully and stands with a bit of balancing, even with all her accessories on...and doesn't stand at all in the crazy heels she comes with, even with a saddle stand, so I swapped her into her flat feet pretty much immediately. For some reason, she also came with an extra, unpainted copy of every one of her mechanical accessories with magnets to attach them - including the head wings, which is why you can see them on her butt in the fullbody pic. I thought she looked cooler with those attached. I guess those were included as a "sorry this took a year" present? They were all still kinda greasy from the mold release, so I think they were added in a hurry. Between this and the rush paint job, I'm a little worried. I hope Dollzone's workers are okay and can rest soon! Regardless, she's here with me now, and I'm glad to have her! I think I'll be carting her around for a while, and maybe seeing if she looks weird on a vinyl or 18" MH body - resin, even well-strung, is awful at holding a pose. Here's some more pictures of her, including one I took just now on my lunch break!
  5. Warning, this topic is still ongoing and it could be a little nsfw for some people. Finally my doll goal of the year is done. After A LOT of difficulties, months of waiting and of course, my wallets death, I finally got an Adykadoll flex body. After some hours of playing with it, I thought it may be useful to share my opinion in case you weren't sure on acquiring one. Something to notice before I begin is that this body fits both SmD and DD (for this you need some pegs you can buy in the official website for the neck), which means it has the same shape and posability for both brands. Unfortunately, afaik, adykadoll body is not available for the classic SmD skin tones anymore (at least for now) and it will only be available in blue in the future. So, if you're looking for one, right now you will only find DD bodies from the official site. Anyway, let's begin. For this topic I will need help of the most beautiful and angelic SmD that exists (IMO). Her name Is Entropy but she prefers to be called "Enty". She's the discontinued semi real style version 1 Entropy, released some time ago. As you can see, she's using her new body. Now, excluding the silicone, what's the difference between the SmD vynil body and this one? More posability for the legs and a curvier shape that (IMO) looks much better than the original body. For posability purposes, more photos below. Starting with the torso: No posability differences here compared with the original vynil body. Even the big gap that allows to see the inner frame between the bust and the torso is the same. Talking about the inner frame, the torso section is metal-made. I couldn't visually confirm this with the tighs or shins, but, judging by the feel when you squeze the silicone, I'm almost sure is made of metal as well. For the legs articulation, I still need to get used to the body so i can update this topic. For now that's all. Hope it helps you in some way and if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask!

    Tales from the Quarantine

    Fortunately, being stuck at home is not half as boring when you have some dolls around. Finally some time to do stories - here's the first one.

    Sophia Photo Thread

    I have another thread for actual character work on Sophia, but figured I'd make a repository specifically for photos - or at least some of them. I've not yet ironed this outfit, but couldn't resist getting some photos of her in it anyways. It took me a solid hour to wrangle out a knot that formed in the jewelry chain on her side, though... Her wig's a mess & not even styled yet, I've been terribly lazy about getting to that - but having her in proper clothes might incentivize me some.

    Mayumi's Photo Blog

    Pardon the cross posts. I just wanted to have a repository of the posts I make with Mayumi and her character to keep a sort of blog of her new life on Zeta-C (an orbital space colony in my fictional world)

    Made a stool inspired by a NSFW figure

    So, I saw this figure some time ago and thought I could make this stool easily using hobby planks of walnut. Easy was an understatement, carving and sanding was a difficult task and took longer than I expected since i was using hardwood. This is the finished product, with interchangeable seats, one made of wood and the other (NSFW) made from acrylic Now I needed a base, something using bricks. So I modelled and printed a bunch of bricks and played around with the configuration. Gave it a coat of paint and eventually ended up with this. With an interchangeable base, one tiled and the other mirrored (NSFW). Also printed some plant pots and bought some foliage from the hobby store. And here's one of my girls modelling. And being a little bit naughty
  10. I've been slowly accumulating various pieces to put together a character of mine - loyal housemaid & head of a certain gentleman's household. And, while she's far from complete (eyes, bunny ears... a custom face up, to name a few things), the lass herself arrived today and I'm absolutely thrilled to have her home. Miss Masya Clementine, affectionately nicknamed 'Ruby' by those close to her. Even though she ultimately won't be keeping this face up, I must admit it I adore it. Now, as I mentioned, I have been slowly accumulating pieces to get her as close as possible to what I'd like her to be - so before I can doll her up, she'll need to be disassembled & reassembled. On the left is the body I wanted for her (C3 Bust, C Lower Torso & Thighs) - and on the right is how she came to me (G Bust, H Lower Torso & Thighs). She was always supposed to be a touch more slender - and I have the H body type on my other lass, Sophia, whom the curves suit much better. Once she was properly assembled, I tossed on a few accessories & decided to see how she looked next to Sophia (who... is still waiting on her own garments. So sorry, angel.) I'm utterly in love with how they look next to each other - but enough of that, it's time to get Miss Clementine dressed. I do intend to do some alterations & sewing of my own to get a gown closer to her original design. But since her gentleman won't be home for a good few months, I have time to make it perfect - no need to rush. Thank you for looking!

    Sophia

    A workspace for my lass Sophia; disgustingly over-financed heiress and, frankly, just a bit of a brat. A character that exists in a larger world of mine, alongside a varied cast of characters. She'll make an introductory appearance in a writing one-shot, along with her full character bio, over on my Patreon - but I tend to keep my usual content & doll hobby quite separate, so I figured this is as good a repository for the latter as any. The very first image of her that popped into my head was a vaguely 1940's-50's era silhouette, more specifically a fitted gown or top with a longer skirt, and a loose, blousy fur stole or some equivalent. The initial plan was to include opera gloves for the little historical touch, but I've discarded the idea for the time being - both because I feel like it'd be a pain and risk staining her doll, and also because I liked the idea of her hands being bare. While I've played around a fair bit with her color palette, I've settled on white & pale peach/purple colors. Despite some of my current photos, her wig is truly more of a dark chestnut plum color, and I for some reason was enamored by the blend of earthy tones and more fantastical purple, despite not typically being fond of the violet family, and built her palette from there. Also fur. And then pearls... lots of pearls.... My first challenge with her right off the bat is her wig. While she has a very lovely wig of decent quality, due to the nature of it's build & the stiffness of the fibers, it floats in an almost Ghibli-esque way, much further from her face than her art. My current idea is to purchase the same wig again, and create a version of flatter lying hair, that harbors more of the pinned down and slicked back look I'm going for with her. Hard to tell from the rough art, but the front portion of her hair is pinned, pulled back behind her ears, with the rest falling over it, but still clinging quite close to her neck. My current plan is to make a tight-fitting wig cap & harvest the fibers from the duplicate wig, most likely gluing wefts in set positions to create the illusion I'm going for. That will mean some limits in poses, in theory, but could be worth it for photo. I'd rather have her current wig, floaty as it is, as a back up - since I am quite fond of it, minor details aside. The other challenge is her face up. The default makeup on Angel Philia girls is plenty charming, but her eyebrows are notably out of character - lending much more to an innocent or shy personality as opposed to her bratty confident, entitled one. I'll readily admit I have zero practice with face ups, and absolutely no experience with vinyl. My assumption is I wouldn't be able to wipe just the brows off and redo them - and even if I could confidently do so, I am in no way confident I have a steady enough hand to paint on matching brows. Will this warrant a face up artist? I am not yet decided... because I'm really quite fond of her face as it is, and don't want to lose the charm, particularly her lips. (That said, my other AP lass that is on the way will be getting a wipe + new face up, so it's possible when the time comes, artist slots permitting, I just send both of them out for new paint.) I have also struggled to find shoes that are exactly what I want for her, as everything I find that's suitable for her only ever seems to come in SD sizes. This may mean modifying the pair of shoes I've ordered for her (a simple pair of white pumps) or making something from scratch. Then there's the challenge of her bust - I've already accepted much of her clothing will need to be sewn by hand to her specific proportions, but I welcome that challenge. The hardest part I believe will be finding the right fabric that drapes over her body.

    Made some AP sized magazines

    Mayumi showing a few sample prints of the latest magazine editions. She takes a read to catch up on Zeta-C giant boobs culture and news. I ended up making a few of them considering Mayumi does intern for a media company. And because I'm connecting her with my fictional world, the magazines actually have readable cover to cover content that add to the lore of said world. __________________________________________________________________________ Making AP scaled stuff is interesting cause I see everyone call AP's 1:3 but they're actually a little more like 1:3.5, so I had to do some guess-timations for these books. Here's my logic to get proper AP scale for the mags (and things in general.) AP height: 48cm x 3 = 144cm (4'7") < waaaaay too short unless she's like 8 with that insane body...... 48cm x 3.5 = 168cm (5'5") < much better, and seems to hold close-ish scale with other real world objects Paper size: Letter 8.5" x 11" scaled by 3.5 = 2.42" x 3.14" Process: Because I was making actual content I made use of an open source page layout editor called Scribus. Size the doc to the dimensions above ( or your preferred scale paper size) and create pages in multiples of 4 if you're doing spreads or multiples of 2 if you'll be gluing single pages. Export as single page images when done. Spreads) rearrange to make spreads in proper order from outside to center (I do this irl so this part may be confusing, refer to an actual stapled magazine or my example below). You will need to do this twice so you can print one full page layout on the back of the other. Cut the pages out as 2 page spreads, fold and glue at the spine of each spread. Glue the center of the inner most spread to help keep it closed and flat. Trim edges and your done. NOTE: Don't use too much glue just a teeny tiny bit. It will hold very well and you don't want to end up gluing pages together. NOTE2: Don't put content too close to the edge as the inner pages will get cropped a tiny bit in the final step. Single pages) A lot easier. Leave the cover as a spread cause it will be wrapping over. Put the odd pages on one layout, and even on the other - but in mirrored order. Cut the cover as a spread, then cut your individual pages. Glue them all together at the spine and wrap the cover spread over. Trim edges and your done. NOTE: Don't put content too close to the edge as the inner pages will get cropped a tiny bit in the final step. If possible I recommend using the lightest(thinnest) possible double sided gloss paper. I was able to get inkjet 42lb double sided gloss from amazon which prints nice had had a good shine for the cover and pages. I think there may be even lighter gloss papers for color laser but I don't have safe access to test for my naughty werx lol.
  13. Hello! I know I've been saying I was going to do this for a while but I had to wait on the DDI body to get returned to me from my sister. Then I got lazy.... but I have finally gotten off my butt to do this comparison post! Basically, I read lots of comments from people with questions about the different body types and how they differ from and are similar to each other. And so far I hadn't seen too many places with pics showing these differences. So I decided to do something about that and put together a basic photo post of the different types of bodies available for the Dollfie Dream line. I had to leave out the newest version, the DD3, due to me not owning one yet. But when my Saber Extra arrives, I'll do a side by side with her too. Anywho, let's begin by meeting our models. I explained to my girls that I wanted to do this not only to help others out but to aide people in the future with adoption decisions. So none of them had issues with posing nude for me since this is basically a scientific study. Yeah yeah.... So here we have from left to right: Headless DDI body, DDII M-Bust Rei Ayanami, DDII L-bust Yukino, DDS Mamimi and DDdy regular bust Mai. DSC_5051 by balldylox, on Flickr Obviously we need to see the body differences so I had the girls disrobe. DSC_5053 by balldylox, on Flickr First up I'll go over the big differences in the DDI and DDII bodies. This DDI was actually Rei's first body. She was released from Volks with this setup. Overall, the dimensions are very close to each other in height and shape. DSC_5054 by balldylox, on Flickr Now for some closeups. Here you can see the differences in their lower torsos. The DDI had large slits to accomodate the strings inside. Yes I said strings, like a resin doll. You'll see those later. Other than the slits, the torsos look very similar in shape and size. DSC_5055 by balldylox, on Flickr Here are the knees. Big differences here as you can see. The DDI has the kneecaps facing up where the DDII has them facing down. Leg shape and size are overall the same. DSC_5057 by balldylox, on Flickr Here, you can see the top of the torsos. The actual busts ARE interchangeable if you are good at re-stringing dolls. Otherwise, don't even try to swap busts on a DDI. The DDII has a slightly longer lower torso than the DDI does as you can see by the difference in shoulder height here. DSC_5058 by balldylox, on Flickr From the side you can see differences in shape now. The DDI has a slightly more arched lower back, giving it a little more rounded butt at the top. DSC_5059 by balldylox, on Flickr A closer view shows the busts to be almost identical except for the tip of the breast on the DDII being a bit more pointy. Also, the DDI bust is a thinner vinyl than the DDII and is a bit more squishy and pliable. DSC_5060 by balldylox, on Flickr A close up of the knees. DSC_5061 by balldylox, on Flickr The feet aren't really different except for the way they attach to the doll. The DDI feet are attached via the strings and the DDII feet plug into the inner skeleton frame. DSC_5062 by balldylox, on Flickr BOOTY! Oh.. um, sorry about that. Here is a shot from the back of both bodies. DSC_5063 by balldylox, on Flickr A closeup of the backs of the knees. DSC_5064 by balldylox, on Flickr Now here is where we start seeing the internal stringing come into play. On the left we have the DDI with it's big "S" hook that holds the head on and loops thru the main string inside the body. The black twist tie is there so if I need to put a head on this body, I can pull out the "S" hook without fear of losing the string inside the body since the string is elastic cord that has some tension on it. On the right you can see the familiar head attachemnt system of the DDII. The small cut on the back of the neck is a modification done by me for better head movement. DSC_5066 by balldylox, on Flickr And now some string! Pulling down on the leg at the knee, you can easily see the string inside. It's elastic so it stretches a bit. DSC_5067 by balldylox, on Flickr Here is the upper leg being pulled down to show the string going into the hip area. DSC_5068 by balldylox, on Flickr So ends the DDI comparison! Now we move on to the differences in busts for the DDII body. To demonstrate we have Rei with her M-bust and Yukino with her normal L-bust. DSC_5069 by balldylox, on Flickr Both bodies here are the DDII and so are exactly the same. This is a close up to show the size differences in the busts. DSC_5070 by balldylox, on Flickr And from the side: DSC_5071 by balldylox, on Flickr Miyuki - "Hey girls! Why are yall naked?" Yukino - "We're showing off our boobs for Papa." me - NO NO NO!!! You are NOT doing that Yukino! Rei - "Yes we are Miyuki." me - Sigh..... DSC_5072 by balldylox, on Flickr me - Miyuki, since you're here, can you please help us? I need to show a comparison of your Shapely L-bust to Yuknios normal L-bust. Miyuki - "Oh sure! I love my new boobs so I'm happy to show'em off!" DSC_5073 by balldylox, on Flickr As you can see, Miyuki now has the new Shapely L-bust. It's basically the same size as Yukino but squished together for more cleavege to show. DSC_5074 by balldylox, on Flickr Here is a side shot: DSC_5075 by balldylox, on Flickr M- "Yay for docking! Hee hee!" Yes, yes Miyuki, docking is great. This is so you can see the spacing between the breasts on these two. DSC_5076 by balldylox, on Flickr Next up we have the DDS body shown by Mamimi. As you can see there are some big changes from the DDII body. DSC_5077 by balldylox, on Flickr First, lets look at the torsos. The DDS is very slim compared to the DDII. Also, the legs are not as long in the thigh area. The arms are a bit shorter too. DSC_5078 by balldylox, on Flickr From the side, the height difference between these two is apparent. The DDII is about an inch taller overall. Also, you can see the slimmer line of the DDS. DSC_5079 by balldylox, on Flickr The elbows are vastly different on these two. The DDII has only one joint whereas the DDS has two. More on this in a minute. DSC_5080 by balldylox, on Flickr From the back, it's easy to see the differences in bodies. Height, shape and body lines are all different. The DDS is made to look like a "little sister" so it's much slimmer in proportion. DSC_5081 by balldylox, on Flickr The backs of the knees. The DDS can move the legs back way further in a sitting position while kneeling ( called seiza in Japanese ). DSC_5082 by balldylox, on Flickr Here is a height comparison using a tape measure. As you can see the DDII is about one inch taller than the DDS if you compare shoulder to shoulder since heads are different shapes and sizes. And the stands the girls are on are the same size and thickness so they aren't throwing off the tape measure. DSC_5083 by balldylox, on Flickr Back to the elbows, here you can see how far the DDII can move its arms compared to the DDS. Those double joints come in handy here. DSC_5084 by balldylox, on Flickr But using the "hidden" joint of the DDII, seen here, you can get similar results as the DDS. To access this joint in the DDII, you have to really pull and wiggle the elbow joints a lot. I had to heat up the joint with a heatgun to make mine pop out. DSC_5085 by balldylox, on Flickr Here is the extended "hidden" joint being used. It doesn't look nearly as good as the DDS one but with certain camera angles, you can hide it well enuff. DSC_5086 by balldylox, on Flickr R - "Are we done yet?" No Rei, we still need to do DDdy comparisons. R - "Please get on with it, I do not want to miss "Pawn Stars". Yes Rei..... As you may have guessed, we are moving on to the DDdy bodies. Here we have Mai modeling the normal DDdy body and bust. DSC_5087 by balldylox, on Flickr As you already know, the DDdy girls are MUCH more curvy and shapely than the regular DDII bodies. The hips are wider, the upper thighs are thicker and of course the busts are larger. DSC_5088 by balldylox, on Flickr Here you can really see the difference in hips and thighs. DSC_5089 by balldylox, on Flickr More booty shots! DSC_5090 by balldylox, on Flickr The regular busts for the DDII are much longer in the front and back than the DDdy ones are. See how far up the vinyl is underneath Mai's boobs compared to Rei's? DSC_5091 by balldylox, on Flickr Since the DDdy girls are shaped to replicate anime girls with larger breasts, the busts are very large. This is the regular version of the DDdy bust compared to the DDII M-bust. DSC_5092 by balldylox, on Flickr Manami - "What in the HELL is going on here? Why are you guys naked? And why didn't anyone tell ME this was happening?" Mai - "Uh oh..." Rei - "Manami, this was all Papa's idea. Ask him." DSC_5093 by balldylox, on Flickr Manami - "So what gives Papa? Why wasn't *I* invited to be naked along with everyone else?" Mai - "Umm....Manami?" Rei - "Typical. This is why we did not invite her in the first place." DSC_5094 by balldylox, on Flickr Manami - "Come here Rei! You owe me for not inviting me!" Mai - "Now wait a second there sis." me - Hold on Manami, I *do* need your help here. You showed up just at the right time! Manami - "I did?" DSC_5095 by balldylox, on Flickr Yes you did. I am doing body comparisons and you have the Shapely Bust. I need to have you take some shots next to Mai to show off how it looks compared to hers. Manami - "Ooohhh.... okay! lemme get this top off then..." Good, you do that and I'll get Yoko over here to help. DSC_5096 by balldylox, on Flickr So now we have all the different types of DDdy busts in attendance! On the left we have Yoko with the "natural" bust, in the center is Mai with the normal bust and on the right we have Manami with the Shapely bust. DSC_5097 by balldylox, on Flickr From the side you can see the differences in them. Size is about the same on the normal and shapely busts. Yoko's are a bit less rounded in shape. DSC_5098 by balldylox, on Flickr From the top, you can really see the separation that these have. Yoko's are the farthest apart and she also has no nipples on her bust. Yoko's also has the most natural shape of the three... well as natural as you CAN be with these things. DSC_5099 by balldylox, on Flickr When I first got Yoko, I had no idea that more than her bust was different from the regular DDdy body. Here you can see some of the differences. Her lower torso is a little longer and thinner at the top. This makes her a slight bit taller. I tried to push the top of the torso down but this is as far as it goes. DSC_5100 by balldylox, on Flickr This side shot really shows you how different Yoko is from the normal DDdy. Look at the arch in her lower back. It makes her butt look rounder and her mid section look slimmer. She also has a slight "bump" just below where her bust attaches. DSC_5101 by balldylox, on Flickr And from the rear ( ha ha! ) you can see how her waist is much thinner. Her butt also seems to be a little rounder on the bottom too. DSC_5102 by balldylox, on Flickr And just for fun, here are some comparisons of the DDII regular L-bust and the regular DDdy bust. DSC_5103 by balldylox, on Flickr Last but not least, we have the DDII Shapely L-bust and the DDdy Shapely busts. M - "STARE" DSC_5104 by balldylox, on Flickr So in closing, I do hope these photos help people out with some of the questions they have about the different body types. Thank you for reading! Billy

    DDS f3 Unitorso

    This is a project that I've wanted to do for awhile, but I kept putting it off because I wasn't really certain it would work. My favorite girl is Makoto Kikuchi who is originally a unitorso DDS, and as much as I love the f3 body I was never willing to give up her unitorso body because she tends to wear stuff that shows off her midriff. I tried stuffing the f3 upper frame into Makoto's body the day Saber Altria arrived, but it didn't go well. I stopped before getting it in because I didn't want to damage the torso, or lose the f3 frame, which couldn't be purchased on its own at that time. I recently happened upon a video by @MaKayla_Panda on YouTube, in which she hybridizes an f3 with an L-Bust untorso. Her video proves that yes it can be done, and no it's not easy. This inspired me to give it a second try armed with a bit more know how. Before I go any further I want to point out that doing this isn't likely to be supported by Volks. They clearly mark certain body parts as incompatible with the new f3 frame, so ignore that advice at your own risk because it's almost certainly going to void the warranty, or at least void the warranty on the torso parts. To get it done I did the following: Made sure all the torso parts were properly tightened, because it's quite possible that I will never be able to get the upper torso back out. Stuck an S-Bust unitorso in a plastic zip-lock bag, forced all the air out, and then immersed the sealed bag in a pot of very hot tap water. I didn't need to boil water to get the body soft enough and I didn't get it squishy soft. Then I just started to push the upper torso in. Once it was in far enough I stopped and made sure that the neck peg was lined up with the neck. If they are misaligned and the torso won't come back out far enough to re-align them, you may end up with a useless unitorso, so if you try this I would be very careful not to omit this step. After the neck part was lined up I just pushed it the rest of the way in. It didn't take me more than 3 or 4 minutes start to finish to get it in, but I have pretty good hand strength, and it's possible I just got lucky and everything lined up just right. I am reasonably sure I will be able to get it back out for adjustment, but I didn't try and the arm holes don't give as much room as the leg holes, so no guarantees. There are also some slight differences in the vinyl, and the unitorso is missing a flange that keeps the hip centered. I am reasonably sure this will be much easier with Takane's DD sized unitorso, because the upper torso frame appears to be the same on DDS and DD and the DD sized unitorso should be a bit larger in the waist. Anyways, introducing the new and improved Kikuchi Makoto-san. She wanted to wear lacy underwear with bows, but it didn't show off her hips. She wasn't happy about the topless part either, but Ranko refused to give up her bra for the photo shoot. I'll post better photos this weekend.
  15. Hello everyone! I am so excited to share with you my first girl in three years, and my very first MDD (though she'll probably move up to a DDP soon). This is my new girl Reina! She is an MDD Rena Ryugu and if you know anything about Higurashi, Rena's legal name is Reina, but she changes it after her parent's divorce. I personally like the spelling of her legal name, and I like to give all my girls different names from their original character dolls, so hence the name change. Without further ado, here are the box opening pictures! and a cute little story of her meeting Lana. Her box came in extremely rough condition from DHL. To the point where my contact asked me if I wanted to pursue a replacement if the doll box itself was damaged. I opted not to because the doll box was fine at this point in time, and I was just so eager to get her in my hands that I did not care. When I finally got her in my hands, the doll box was pretty dented, but I was literally shaking with excitement so I couldn't care less. The box itself was extremely light compared to other Dollfie Dreams I have opened in the past, but I think this thought comes from the last Dollfie I opened being Jeanne, and how heavy and tiring she was to lug around the airport to get her home. AHHH! THERE SHE IS! LOOK AT THAT FACE! So, so sweet! Her head is really large and looks similar to my Moriko (DDdy Yoko). Reina: Oh! Hello there Mrs. Giant! Me: Hello Reina! My name is Redacted but since I am showing you to all my dolly friends, I would prefer it if you could refer to me as Rozen just for the forum stuff. Reina: Oooh! You have a secret identity?! That's so kyute~!!! Ok, Mrs. Rozen, I am so happy to be out of that box, but can I please have some clothes now? Me: Of course! Time to get her dressed! Reina: Oooo! I'm so kyute! I love this outfit! Me: Awe I'm glad you like it, Reina! Reina: Huh? What's this piece of fabric next to me? Lana: Eh-hem. Reina: Oh my! Reina: He-hello! You startled me! Lana: Hello little one! I am Lana! I am so happy to meet you. Mrs. Rozen has been talking about you almost non-stop since seeing your listing on the weird dimensional screen. Something called Mandarake? No matter. I am so happy you're finally here. It has been lonely these past three years without other friends and my dear sister here. Reina: Oh wow you were alone for three years?! All by yourself? That's so sad! Lana: Well I had Mrs. Rozen's company, however, I miss being in Japan surrounded by my friends and sister. Reina: Well don't worry Mrs. Lana! I am here now and we can be friends! Lana: I would love that little one! Me: Awe I am so happy you two are getting along! Both: Yes! Thanks, Mrs. Rozen we're so happy to have another girl in the cottage! Me: Well I have some more exciting news loves! In about two weeks we are going back home to Japan and you'll get to be together with everyone once again! Both: WHAT?! Haha well seems like both the girls are beyond excited for that little bombshell! In fact, Lana cried a little bit and Reina turned a bright shade of red from the fact that she'll be meeting 3 other girls shortly. Below are some extra pictures I took of Reina! Thank you so much for reading my silly little story and welcoming my new girl into the community!

    Volks 50th Anniversary Project

    They are preparing various special projects to celebrate. No details on anything doll related yet, but there is almost certain to be something. https://www.volks.co.jp/50th/
  17. Now that it's getting warmer but the high humidity common during Japanese summers hasn't hit yet, I'm considering blushing the nipples on my DDS. The doll painting tutorials I found so far are usually for faces. And while these gave me a decent Idea on the proper use of Mr. Super Clear, I presume the painting techniques for body blushing are a bit different. I really don't have any experience with painting, so it would be great if you could point me to tutorials regarding the matter at hand or leave related advice here. Would stuff like the Volks pastel colors be a viable option here (even though they are officially intended for SD)? Thanks for helping out!

    [VNSFW] Testament Photo Gallery

    Finally I've decided to open a dedicated topic for my photos ^^. Sorry in advance, the first posts will be reposts from the main topic, to have them all in one place. Let's start from the beginning! I'll start with some photos I took for review purpose (here: https://thebeautyandthemecha.blogspot.com/2020/02/pink-drops-39-marie-by-quarantotto.html in italian, sorry), so Marie (Pink Drops #39) is just out of the box, nude and bald. (click on photo for full resolution) What can I put on, C3 or H3 for tonight? And H2... Internal frame, just because... Next time more conventional photos... more or less...

    The mystery box

    A little while ago a parcel was delivered to my doorstep. After I brought it in, Miura was the first to the scene. Let's see what she managed to find inside. And as such, we now have another resident and a grumpy girl at our house.

    [NSFW - MDD nudity] Naughty Miura

    Hello everyone! I was bored during my lunch break today, so I decided to take some photos of Miura instead of eating. She's already looking sorta naughty by default, given her skimpy outfit, but today is extra naughty! (I mean, why get nipples painted and then not show them off, right? Right?) Also, please forgive using the same backdrop as in most photos. The weather is dreadful, and I hate cold so I'm not going outside! (And my housemates might look at me weirdly if I set up shop in the kitchen or something. ) Anyway... All right, that's quite far enough, young lady. Let's not go too overboard, okay?

    A2 (Nier: Automata)

    I finished A2 a while ago but I was lazy and forgot to upload photos until now lol She is a DDdy with a modded M bust.
  22. After many years of toying with the idea, I have finally purchased multiple dolls while in Japan. Specifically, I have a first gen Miku, a MDD and shall also be getting a DDB. On the plus side, I love all my new dolls. On the minus, they need to move thousands of miles when I go back to the US in September and so I’m interested to hear if anyone else has dealt with this, and/or has thoughts on the best ways to do it. So far I’ve thought of a few options. 1. Have the moving company handle them - concern here is I’ll be shipping by boat I am not sure they’d do well with months in transit. Though I will note that the moving company will have insurance for damages. 2. Carry them on my return flight - likely the safest option, but carryon space is at a premium. Dedicating space for all three dolls might be tough 3. Ship them via DHL/FedEx/UPS to my parents house and then ship them again to me - Likely the most expensive option, but would get me my dolls whole faster than option four. Again risk of damage in transit but can also be insured. 4. Carry on the heads and boy body parts, ship or let the moving company handle the rest - Currently I find myself leaning towards this as it has me keeping the parts that are difficult to replace but taking a risk on those that I can easily get again.

    80 cm anime TPE doll

    Just to amuse you, I wanted to show off my 80cm TPE doll. Now, these dolls aren't for anyone, I think. I just thought this one was really cute. However, TPE as a material has serious drawbacks and I would not buy again. Also, finding clothes for the doll is a chore... (yes, technically it is a 'sex doll', but custom made without the 'functionality'. Which I kind of regret now, it would be easier to sell XD)
  24. The title says everything. I'm planning on getting both DDdy lower torso and chest of one of this two brands as I heard both have a very good quality. First I was thinking peach pai was my best option because its lower price, but then I noticed there are some shape differences between both that made me doubt. I tried looking for some comparison photos but no success. All i found were photos of one, or the other that barely helped. So, do you, beautiful, wise and all mighty dollfie community, have any comparison images so I can make my decision?
