  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 A lot of the information about these dolls on the first couple pages of this discussion thread is either A) out of date or B) wrong, since not much was known about them here when I started the thread last year.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. Well its been a bit quiet on this front for me, due to a few reasons, and while I've managed to now complete both shins for my liberty project, its been a bit stalled in terms of how to go about the next bits... But... what to do when a project stalls ? when many of your projects have stalled? ... start a new one, naturally.... But seriously, i've actually had this one on the back burner maybe even longer than my liberty thing, which is to take some of the old obscure volks items and try to reproduce them. namely stuff like this: sewing007 Believe it or not, but thats actually a La Personal Blue label item from the year dot. patrons of the USA volks store might actually remember seeing this as the gateway picture to the clothing section of that respective webstore, even long after its existance had been eradicated from the japanese site. But from this you can see that some things have come quite the way's in terms of overall quality, but also something else has been lost, namely the edgy fashion that DD's represented. So I decided to have a bash at this swimsuit of sorts. (I think it was labeled as a bodysuit if I recall correct). For the first iteration, or general attempts at least I left the criss cross section out, even though I do have small enough eyelets to get them done. as it turned out as I ended up wanting more organic lines for my thingy, getting the pattern done was easier said than done... sewing008 I believe I mentioned the roll of pleather I managed to procure in another topic somewhere, and it is more or less suitable for this sort of thing. Thick enough not to need any weird sacrificial stuff while sewing, but flexible enough that it will bend around itself rather nicely... That said... turning the patterns into actual items didn't go without its sacrifices... sewing009 So after about two days of beavering away at these, I finally managed to get two presentable sets done, one more or less in the spirit of the original, and then a two piece affair which is based on the one piece pattern. sewing010 The one piece one has some fine tuning still to do with the patterns, and the two piece's top just has a bit of delamination going on, but over all Im happy for now, more or less that I have at least something to show off for two days worth of head scratching. ... And while these might look like they resemble stuff you could get off YJA, I did not reverse engineer anything to actually make my patterns... so then it was just time to charge the camera battery, and then stuff Elizabeth into this, since it does give a minor Avenger saber vibe... Hope you like, despite the minor iffish poses to bring out some of the features... saber215 saber216 saber217 saber218 saber219 saber220 saber221 saber222 saber223 saber224 saber225 saber226 saber227 saber228 saber229 saber230 saber231 saber232 saber233 saber234 saber235 saber236 saber237 saber238 saber239 saber240 saber241 saber242 saber243 saber244 saber245 saber246 Thanks for looking....
  3. 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

    Rose's Russian Friend

  6. Well, its been awhile since the last set, due to a few reasons involving spending not so quality time in my garage... But finally I got a bit of a break to try something.. Minor fanservice type set, involving my Mo with new red F-type eyes... trying not to make this outfit style a total habit, but I didn't want a big hastle setting up the set, so went with .. minimalism in a way.. hope you like, despite the fact that after taking the set, I found out I had my cameras ISO setting cranked up for some reason and the source images were quite a bit grainy... moe066 moe067 moe068 moe069 moe070 moe071 moe072 moe073 moe074 moe075 moe076 moe077 moe078 moe079 moe080 moe081 moe082 moe083 moe084 Thanks for looking...

    Thank You

    Thanks for all the work to bring back a great forum! Tiriaq + girls
  8. Tested my new studio light with some photos of Ayu while she's wearing the Peach Pai Plus that I bought her last year. Love the look on her, it looks so natural since they're a little saggy~ From my twitter: https://twitter.com/sayosbox
  9. Well, I was finally able to get enuff time together to do this comparison shoot! I know it took awhile but I think it was worth the wait. I've got 3 bodies here to compare.... the original DDdy, a DD3 and Mirai. I tried to get a lot of pics of things that people have asked me about including specific shots of the bodies and heads so hopefully if you had those questions, I've answered them for you! Now, on to the photos! *WARNING* Dollfie nudity ahead! Can't do a proper body comparison without nude bits! With that out of the way, let's meet our models. To the left we have Mari on the original DDdy body with the regular bust. In the center is Mirai on her default body with the default S-bust. And to the right we have Saber on a DD3 regular L-bust body. Saber - "Why am I here again? I was sleeping so nicely before I was RUDELY awakened...." DSC_2244 by balldylox, on Flickr Alright girls, are yall ready to get down to business? Mari - "Sure thing, let's get nekkid!" Mirai - "Do I *have* to do this?" Saber - "Where are the waiters with snack trays? I am NOT getting nude without some type of food in the vicinity." DSC_2245 by balldylox, on Flickr The girls took off their shoes to show the differences in height. Mari is the shortest on the DDdy with Saber a close second to Mirai. Mirai is only barely taller than Saber is. DSC_2246 by balldylox, on Flickr Someone had asked for a side by side comparison of the 06 head and Mirai so here's a few pics from different angles of that: DSC_2247 by balldylox, on Flickr DSC_2248 by balldylox, on Flickr I hadn't noticed this before but the mouth area on Mirai is way flatter than most DD heads.... DSC_2249 by balldylox, on Flickr BOOBIES! Sorry, had to get that out of my system. Anyway, here's the girls in their pantsu. DSC_2250 by balldylox, on Flickr It's easy to see the height differences here by looking at the shoulders. Now with Mirai and Saber, the shoulders are higher on Mirai but the head size and necks make them almost even in height overall. DSC_2251 by balldylox, on Flickr I took off their wigs so their hair wasn't blocking body pics. From the side you can see body lines and chest sizes. DSC_2252 by balldylox, on Flickr You can see the back arches here nicely. The DDdy is close in shape to the SmartDoll body. Also, you can see how the arm shapes differ.... Mirai's arms are a little longer and thinner. DSC_2253 by balldylox, on Flickr Bust sizes, torso seams and the shapes and head sizes. Mirai has quite the egg shaped noggin! DSC_2254 by balldylox, on Flickr Speaking of arms, the double jointed elbows are almost identical on the SD and DD3. DSC_2255 by balldylox, on Flickr A shot from the back. From left to right in case you forgot... DDdy, Mirai and DD3. DSC_2256 by balldylox, on Flickr The lower legs here look similar but have differences too. You can see the way the legs changed from the older DDdy body to the DD3, the slits are cut differently now. DSC_2257 by balldylox, on Flickr Here's the lower backs and booty! Of course the DDdy butt is wider and more full than the others but Mirai has a nice little hiney too. DSC_2258 by balldylox, on Flickr Now we need to swap busts for some L-bust comparisons. While we do that I'll show you the inner frame differences. As you can see, my Saber had her shoulder tubes break so I had to epoxy weld those back on and then do the zip tie fix to help hold them in place. So far this repair has held very well. DSC_2259 by balldylox, on Flickr Here's a shot from the side where you see the torso cuts and different shapes of vinyl openings for the inner frames. DSC_2260 by balldylox, on Flickr A little closer view of the shoulder tubes on each frame. At first I thought the Mirai tubes were kind of thin looking but now I see they're pretty beefy compared to the new DD3 versions. Plus the way they're attached gives you better positioning inside the body. DSC_2261 by balldylox, on Flickr Now for the L-bust comparison someone asked about. To the left is Mirai and to the right is Saber. DSC_2262 by balldylox, on Flickr As you can see, they're pretty close in shape and size overall. The position of the breasts on the torso is where the most difference can be seen. Mirai's breasts sit lower on the torso than the DD L-bust does. DSC_2263 by balldylox, on Flickr The DD bust is a bit more round in shape than the SmartDoll too. DSC_2264 by balldylox, on Flickr But since the Mirai boobs sit a little lower and are a bit wider, they look more natural in my opinion. This also makes them fit under clothes a bit more oddly than the DD ones do. I tried out a Volks dress set for the L-bust and the back zipper wouldn't go up all the way due to the breasts pushing out at the bottom of the front of the dress too much. A regular DD L-bust had no problem fitting in. DSC_2265 by balldylox, on Flickr Here's a close up or two of the arms, Mirai on the left and DD3 on the right. DSC_2266 by balldylox, on Flickr Mirai has hollow tubes for shoulder pegs while the DD3 has a channel cut in for pressure relief on the inner frame. But the pegs are almost the same size around. DSC_2267 by balldylox, on Flickr So does this mean the Mirai arms will fit into the DD3 body? Well.... no. Here's a shot of them on Saber: DSC_2268 by balldylox, on Flickr Problem is that they barely sit in there with any friction.... they're too small in diameter to hold themselves up at all. So this is a no go. People have asked whether or not a DD head can fit onto the SmartDoll body so I figured I'd check it out and see. Here's a close up of the two different head pegs, Mirai to the left and Saber to the right. As you can see, the pegs are NOT the same shape or size. DSC_2269 by balldylox, on Flickr BUT.... you CAN use some putty or tape around the neck peg in Mirai to make a DD head work. Here's Sabers head on the SmartDoll body. DSC_2270 by balldylox, on Flickr And here's why this doesn't work without some modification... the neck holes are different sizes. And it looks like my Saber has a small crack/split on her neck hole...... no wonder her heads been a little loose. >_< DSC_2271 by balldylox, on Flickr Now for some hand comparisons. The top one is from Mirai and the bottom is the DD3. It's clear that these will NOT swap out with each other. DSC_2272 by balldylox, on Flickr As with most other things on Mirai, the pegs are smaller. DSC_2273 by balldylox, on Flickr But they're also made better. The design seems more sturdy and less prone to breaking. I know that hook joint in the wrist of the DD has broken before and there's no fixing it once it does. I tried it when an MDD one broke and there was no saving it. DSC_2274 by balldylox, on Flickr A quick shot of the feet with Mirai to the left and Saber to the right. The feet look very similar but the joint at the ankle is more visible on Mirai. I think this is due to having her extra joint easier to move and adjust tho. DSC_2275 by balldylox, on Flickr Next up is legs. Seen here are the length differences between Mirai and the DD3. DSC_2276 by balldylox, on Flickr Mirai's knees are a bit higher up. Also, her thighs don't have that weird in-cut like Sabers do. DSC_2277 by balldylox, on Flickr I love this shot because it shows the big difference between the torsos and bust seam lines. Saber looks like she needs to eat a few more burgers while Mirai looks healthy and still trim. I like her tummy much more than the DD3 one, it's way more natural in shape. I also like the way the breasts sit with the seam line up high like on Mirai. So far this doesn't seem to affect her posability either. DSC_2278 by balldylox, on Flickr Torso seam lines from the side. DSC_2279 by balldylox, on Flickr Time for the DDdy comparisons! The DDdy is a little shorter than Mirai but not by a ton. DSC_2280 by balldylox, on Flickr But those thighs on the DDdy! Way thicker..... not that it's a bad thing at all. DSC_2281 by balldylox, on Flickr Tummy and boobs. I like the tummy on the DDdy better because it's closer to how Mirai looks. It has good shape to it without being skinny looking like the DD3. DSC_2282 by balldylox, on Flickr The seam lines here are really similar. You can also see the size difference between the breasts. DSC_2283 by balldylox, on Flickr People have said that Mirai's L-bust is between the Volks L-bust and the DDdy bust and that's about true. You can see the DDdy bust boobs are way more round than Mirai. And they sit higher on the torso than Mirais do. DSC_2284 by balldylox, on Flickr But overall size is kind of similar. DSC_2285 by balldylox, on Flickr From a top down view it's easier to see the size and shape difference. The DDdy is wider overall but Mirai's sit away from the torso further than the DDdy does. So they sit under shirts quite differently. DSC_2289 by balldylox, on Flickr This brings us to clothing fitting. Here's a Volks top from the Alna Everday Wear set. It's specifically for the DDdy busts. DSC_2290 by balldylox, on Flickr Side view: DSC_2291 by balldylox, on Flickr Now on Mirai it's a close fit but it's kinda loose too. DSC_2292 by balldylox, on Flickr From the side. I had to pull the two halves together as far as I could to attach the Velcro strips and make sure the top didn't slip down her back. But it still fits her alright. Not perfect tho. DSC_2293 by balldylox, on Flickr I cannot help taking pics of Mirai.... she's just too damn cute! DSC_2294 by balldylox, on Flickr "Awww! You think I'm cute?" DSC_2296 by balldylox, on Flickr "Whoo hoo! I'm cute!" DSC_2297 by balldylox, on Flickr AHEM. Getting back on point, here's another DDdy setup. This is normally on Manami and her Peach Pai but it actually fits Mirai very nicely! DSC_2298 by balldylox, on Flickr I think it works well because it's very stretchy and elastic so it fits her shape better. DSC_2299 by balldylox, on Flickr Sooooooo pretty! DSC_2300 by balldylox, on Flickr For our last outfit, I chose the Gangster set from Volks. It's also DDdy only. And it kind of fits her.... barely. DSC_2301 by balldylox, on Flickr See that top right button? It's holding on for dear life. Since her boobs sit lower on her chest, it makes the widest part of her breasts lower than a DDdy. So it puts more strain on the lower part of outfits like this. The DDdy boobs sit up higher so these buttons snap with no issues and sit under the breasts instead of in front of them like here. Also, see the way the skirt is sitting on her? I couldn't adjust it any more than this. It's way too l oose on her hips, she just isn't as wide as the DDdy girls in that area so skirts and pants/shorts don't fit her as well from these. DSC_2302 by balldylox, on Flickr Still, her L-bust looks good all stuffed in there.... DSC_2303 by balldylox, on Flickr Damn she's pretty! DSC_2304 by balldylox, on Flickr Well that's all. I hope most everyones questions got answered. If not, feel free to ask them here and I'll see what I can do for you. Thanks for looking! Billy

    A Reunion Interrupted

    We bring you this broadcast to open up a box containing a new DD gal on this Christmas Day, 2018. But, what may be lying ahead? We’ll soon find out… “Man, I’ve been waiting for months for this day…I can’t wait to see your face again. Miu…” Meanwhile… ???- “What’s going on? Why is she so hesitant to get to this box? Why’s it so important? Hmm…” “Hey, what’s going on here!” *Gasps* “Tea, what are you doing?! You friggin’ made my heart jump!” “I wanted to know why this box was so important and maybe lend a hand at opening it!” *Tea gets up onto the box* This is Tea. My friend’s dollfie dream. Wait, you thought we sold her? Nah, we just sold the DDH-03 SW head when we found the real Tea, a Yukino V2 (who came installed with the eyes she’s currently wearing). We like to call the previous head we sold, “Tea’s clone”. The head ended up just filling in her spot until she came home. And here she is, all ready to help out with the box opening! “Tea, I appreciate the offer for help, but come on and get down off of there so I can get her open.” “Awh,…okay.” “Hey, you in there, we are gunna get you out!” “We?” “Yeah, we! I said I wanted to lend a hand at opening the box!” “Nah, Tea. It’ll be okay. I got this under control. But again, thank you.” *Picks Tea up and sits her down onto the floor* “You just sit there and stay out of trouble.” “Hmph, I still think I could help but…fine.” “Here I go. Miu, you will soon be freed!” *Gasps* “TEA!” “Yaaaay, peanuts! Weeeheeeheeehee!” *throws peanuts up into the air* “It’s like a party in here along with being like a bed!” “Tea, get out of there! You’re right on top of her!” “Fine, fine. You can be such a party pooper.” “Okay, this is it. Moment of truth. Time to get her out of there!” “Man, they really outdid themselves. Good job whoever packaged this.” “Hello there, Miu. We meet, once again.” *Lays box down to open* “Hi, Miu! I’m Tea! We’ll get you out of there soon!" “C’mon, Tea. Give her some room. You’ll be able to meet her very soon.” *Pats Tea on the head* My heart just melts looking at her face as she’s looking up at me in curiosity (and possibly joy). *Gets her free from the plastic and ribbon ties* “Hi there, once again, Miu. I’m (insert my real name here). Welcome home.” Miu – “Hello. Thank you for getting me out of there, but where…, exactly, am I?” “You’re at my home where I live. You’ll be a part of my family now. That’s Tea, over there. She also lives here and will basically be like your roommate. You’ll be safe here, trust me.” “Hey there, Miu….oooh!” “What is it, Tea?” “She…she doesn’t have any clothes on!” “She originally comes like that, Tea. Even you came exactly just as nude as her and so have I. We are all brought into this world just in our “birthday suit” as some people like to call it.” “What?! I did? Well…I guess that does make some sense now that you put it that way. We should get her some clothes to put on!” “No problem, I have them all right here. You ready, Miu?” “Sure. It is quite chilly and I could use something to cover up.” “All good to go!” “There. Now, Tea, you can formally introduce yourself.” “Welcome home, Miu. Like she said, I’m Tea and I’ll keep ya company! I got your back!” “Thank you, Tea. Nice to meet you. It’s good to finally be out of that old box! Thank you, (insert my real name here), for bringing me home!” --- Miu Today Currently on DDS S Bust Body --- Thank you for joining in on Miu’s welcoming home and Tea’s basic introduction! Tea was originally an 03 SW blank head that my friend bought off of Volks USA. We wanted a V2 but they were sold out and discontinued by the time he seriously thought about getting one. Fortunately, one day I was browsing around Mandarake and found a V2 Yukino with those beautiful, purple eyes installed. I had to mention it to him and we bought her quickly. So, the old head had to be sold and the new/”real” Tea came into our lives. Tea, as she is now, was opened on August, 6th, 2018. She has stolen my heart a bit especially since I see a quite mischievous side in her though her real character that my friend is making her into is not like that at all. Haha~ So, in retrospect, Tea’s personality/character in this photo story is mainly how I see her currently and is not a reflection on who she will become once my friend fully customizes her to be who she truly is. She will end up being different once finished. Regardless of that, he does seem to enjoy her and hopes for the day he ends up being able to fully customize her into who she is meant to be. For now, Miu and Tea both say goodbye! --- **Disclaimer: This is my first ever photo story. It will, most likely, be the one and only photostory that I make. I plan on just sharing photos on my Flickr (and/or maybe Instagram if I ever make an account) and commenting on the forums from now on. Just wanted to throw that out there for anyone who’s curious.**
  11. Hello everyone! I didn't post (and shoot) photos since a lot of time. I finally had time (and space, and quiet) enough to make some new photos. Thanks to Sydia for the awesome faceup, and thanks to Kitsune for selling me the outfits too

    Giada - Naked (nsfw for DD nudity)

    I made this separate thread for this nsfw photo I took after the main set of photos I already published here: Giada is my first doll with a single piece torso/waist and I'm pretty sure it will not be my last! The look without the torso joint is so much better! Thanks to Sydia for the awesome faceup!

    Midori in lingerie (slightly NSFW)

    I've had this lingerie for a while now and even tho it's been on almost every one of my girls that has a silicone chest, for some reason Midori here wears it best. I was playing around with the lighting this time and going for an old timey look where the photos have that yellowed out look. It works in a few of the pics but not all of them. Still, Midori looks really good and I figured I'd share. DSC_1702 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1705 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr I can't recall where I got this shirt but it sure shows of her chest nicely. DSC_1706 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1707 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1709 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1710 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr Ok, time to lose the shirt and see some lingerie. DSC_1711 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr She uses the Wersaze silicone bust. It's the XXL size. DSC_1712 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr The set came with stockings and garters.... my favorite. DSC_1713 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1714 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1715 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1716 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr Thank goodness the straps are adjustable. Otherwise those big boobies would never fit in there. DSC_1717 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr Not everyone likes her eyes but I love them. They're metallic and super shiny, a good fit for her since she's an android. DSC_1718 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr DSC_1719 by Billy Bennett, on Flickr That's all. I just wanted to share these since Midori really looked nice in them. Thanks for looking! Billy
