  1. I think we all have our own ideas of what the "quintessential" (or perhaps even stereotypical) BJD or HJD looks like - for old-guard BJD fans, it may be a big-eyed Luts or an ethereal Minifee, or even an original Super Dollfie sculpt. And I think many vinyl lovers see the anime-styled Dollfie Dream or Smart Doll as the gold standard. But I would like to raise a glass to a vinyl phenotype that seems almost forgotten to time despite its odd beauty -- the classic Obitsu face. Characterized by big almond-shaped eyes with a notable lack of animetic-ness, often thin natural-looking eyebrows, and small lips, I would personally place the peak of the Obitsu face at around 2008-2013. I call it the Obitsu face because it's primarily found on Obitsu's original 1/3 dolls. Almost all examples of this style from Obitsu seem to have been sculpted by artist Hirata Hideaki. While the style may seem quite dated to anime doll collectors of today, these heads photograph well due to their strong angles, defined nose bridge and relatively sharp jawline. Although out of print, many of these dolls can still be found for sale on secondhand sites like Mandarake. My second-favorite Angel Philia sculpt, Ran/Rin, looks a bit like a semi-real version: So that's basically it: a thread to appreciate these old beauties, and show 'em off if you own any! I currently don't, but hopefully soon I'll be able to call one of these girls my own.

    Rena's set arrived today!!

    My Rena is here!! She's my first vinyl doll! I bought an Obitsu Misuzu for her, opting for a cheaper version that i might enjoy more, and her set just arrived today! The wig is a bit big on her, but I like the look of it. (please excuse the mess, im in the process of reorganizing my space)

    Parabox Obitsu RANDOMS - SWF only!!

    Hey everyone!!!! ....I saw these in the other areas but not here yet so I figured I would start one. At the moment my Parabox dolls are my obsession so I love showing them off and taking photos of them! Post any random doll photo you want here! Just keep it SFW (Safe for work!) I will start out with an old photo of my girl Kira ... she is a Himeane Parabox head on a 40cm Parabox/Obitsu body. She dove into a pile of plushies at a convention vendor space. Tsk. Naughty dollie!

    Oculae's Hybrid Lab!

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

    Obitsu 50-04 as Anya Forger

    I have lost count of how many sculpts I already customized as Anya. I have an Ellie/Obitsu 50-04 lying around... and I never realized how much potential it has! I think this sculpt is what I personally think suits Anya the best! I did a few mods - sanding down the mouth and making the eye holes slightly larger. The previous faceup was already cute but it just didn't seem "Anya" enough for me.

    tiny cyclops project doll

    After seeing Oculae's Poppy I really wanted to make a little Cyclops of my own. But I'm trying not to buy more dolls until I use what I have. And what I had was a dyed body and an under head, which I'd forgotten the dye minute for the body. So I tried to blush the head to match. Its... ok. Im hoping the unevenness will be hidden by her wig when I make it. Also one of her shoulder joints snapped off clean as I was making her clothes. She's becoming a real project doll, but I'm trying to trust the process. I've pinned her sleeve so she's a one armed girl for now. Today I'm makeing yarn weft to give her some hair. Then I have have to decide what to do with her hands. The original set turned green when I dyed them brown, and paint flaked off. I'm thinking maybe dye them black so she's wearing gloves? I'm going for a Japanese Steampunk look for her. I found an amazing costumer on pinterest that inspired me. Hopefully she'll come together in the end!
  9. Hi everybody! Now that she FINALLY has her wig and glasses, I'm back with another hybrid, one that I consider my personal magnum opus so far. Meet Sinclair! "Hi!" It might be hard to tell from this angle, but Sinclair is a very special hybrid - she's chubby! Like, ACTUALLY chubby. I've been wanting to make a mini-me for a long time, but considering I wear a size L everything, a normal Dollfie Dream or Obitsu just wasn't gonna cut it. I wanted my anime self to be realistic, so I turned to drastic measures: a wacky hybrid of Obitsu, DD, AP, and MDD parts, including a few subtractive mods and a hybrid frame. But more on the build in the next post. First, measurements! Sinclair is 47cm tall from head to foot, putting her at about the same height class as an AP or DDP. Her three measurements: Bust 24 cm, Waist 18 cm, Hip 26 cm. For pants, her thigh circumference is 16 cm, calf circumference is 10.5 cm, and her inseam is 18.5 cm. For shirts, her shoulders to her hips is 13 cm, and her arms are 15.5 cm long from wrist to shoulder. And since I measured it, from her hip to the bottom of her foot is 22.5 cm. Her thickest measurement is around both thighs, with her legs at their default position, and that's a whopping 28 cm! Her thighs are bigger than her hips and it's glorious. Not so glorious is the clothing options - she can only fit shirts that'll support a DD Large bust, but her arms are just slightly too short for tailored DD sleeves. Her thighs only fit SD pants, but even her thick calves drown in them...not to mention she needs like 10 more cm of height to get the fit just right. And her waist fits SD13 pants...and stuff that's intended to sit low on a DD's hips. So that's a no go for most DD pants. So far I've put her in two bottoms from DollDelights, some handmade SD capris, a handmade sweater, and a handmade handkerchief top all from Mandarake, and some SD Girl sized pants from Gavalloni Atelier, which fit nicely if you ignore the horrible fabric bunching at the ankles! Funnily enough, if it weren't for her waist, the official Angel Philia Office Lady pants I have were beautifully fitted on her. Perhaps if I get brave I'll try to make a pattern with them and adjust that. For now though, I'll plan on commissioning some pants and keeping a close eye on DollDelights for more cute stuff she can wear! Because this skirt is lovely. Her head is a DDH07, with a faceup and eyes by ねこまっしぐら (Neko Masshigura), and she has on a pair of Volks Jewelry Box glasses and a Dallas Doll Co wig. She uses DD hands and Obitsu 50 feet, my favorite hands and feet. The hybrid's got a pretty good color match - the only noticeable mismatch in tones is her shins, which have a pinker undertone than the rest of her. It barely shows up in photos, and is only really bad in person when she's in sunlight, so I don't mind it. The only major bummer about her is that she can't sit, due to a quirk in her construction that I'll get into. I'm not sure if that's something I'll ever be able to fix, either. We'll see.
  10. Hi! I found someone who would want to buy my 40/45 upper male body part but i don’t know what to price it, i also have 40/45 lower male body part and a obitsu 45cm head that i don’t know what to price. It is perfect condition and i bought the body and head from someone who never used it, no modifications done and i sketched a little on the head but i erased it but there may be some spots i missed.

This topic contains writeups for outfits I own that fit well [or not] on 45, 48 and 50cm Obitsu-type bodies, including AZO2 and Angel Philia.

Short Sleeves - Many MDD tops will fit Long Sleeves & Outerwear - Tops designed for Obitsu & Azone will fit the best. Long-sleeved MDD/DDP tops will be too short in the sleeves. Besides Azone, LittleWonder carries tops made specifically for Obitsu. (Difference in sleeve length between MDD and Obitsu tops) Obitsu Large and Angel Philia (C5) are on the larger side of "normal". Anything more fitted or stiff (such as dress shirts, jumpers, uniforms) might not snap all the way. Contact the vendor if you're unsure about fit. Tops on Large Busts (AZO2-G, AZO2-I, Angel Philia-G/C2/C3) Your options are a lot more limited since these sizes are far too big for most MDD-sized clothing and generally not sized properly for SD & DD-sized clothing. Most clothing that fits well will be from Azone's own AZO2 line. Baggy/oversized MDD clothing can sometimes work. LittleWonder also makes clothing for this size. Some DD clothing will fit if it's sized for SS/S/M, but tops will run long on the torso and wide around the neck and shoulders. Avoid clothing for L and DDDy. Bottoms on Slim Figures (Obitsu 48/50) Almost all MSD/MDD skirts fit readily on these bodies. Some shorts fit, but I've found that getting them past the legs is a challenge. Besides Azone, LittleWonder makes an extensive line of compatible skirts specifically for Obitsu 50. Nine9 and TTYA make shorts, but between the two, I've had better luck getting the Nine9 ones up and no luck with the TTYA denim ones. Bottoms on Angel Philia-C Angel Philia C has slim hips like Obitsu 48-50 but slightly thicker legs. They'll fit into the same skirts as in the section above. No shorts will fit satisfactorily on AP-C. MDD shorts won't pass through the legs unless they're designed for Mochiashi, but DD shorts will run too big in the waist and legs. If your girl wants to wear shorts, avoid this size. Bottoms on Curvy Figures (AZO2, Angel Philia-H) Shorts Buy DD-sized shorts. The Azone denim shorts, while simple, are cheap, easy to find and fit well due to their elasticity. For trendier looks, TTYA or Nine9 make particularly nice pairs, but they run quite a bit tighter. Stick to low-rise shorts for the best results. High-waisted shorts may be too loose around the waist since they are designed for resin dolls with much wider waists. Skirts The best fitting skirts are made by Azone for their 50cm/AZO2 girls. They slip up the legs and are just the right waist size. Some MDD skirts also fit but will sit higher / run shorter. DD-sized skirts will run a bit wide and long, but if they are made specifically for DD (and not SD), they will probably fit alright. For a better look, 50cm thighs will look the best with these skirts. Avoid SD-sized skirts. The waist is too wide, so they fall down and sit unnaturally low. Using a tiny binder clip to reduce the skirt's circumference helps but may wrinkle it over time. Suspenders are another option. Clothes for Azone 45cm Almost all MDD/DDP clothes will fit readily on the Azone 45cm body (used for Iris Collect Petit) and fit just a little tighter than they do on a MDD (S). Clothes designed for Obitsu 48/50 will run long in the sleeves for tops and a little longer overall for bottoms. Shoes (just get Volks MDD shoes) Obitsu feet are advertised as 6cm in size, versus 5cm for MDD and 5.5cm for DDP. However, I find that a lot of Azone-made shoes run small, despite being made for Obitsu feet. Every pair of Volks MDD shoes I've gotten fits well, especially those that are advertised as fitting both DDP & Mochiashi feet. Non-Volks Shoes made for MDD are hit and miss. (I check the fit on Azone, Volks and other shoes in a dedicated post) Measurements Azone AZO2 Hips: 23.5cm Waist: 14.0cm Bust (C/G/I): 18.75cm/22cm/23cm Arm Length: 15.5cm Thigh Circumference: 14.8cm Angel Philia Hips (H/C): 23.5cm/21.5cm Waist (H/C): 14.0cm/13.8cm Bust (H2/H/C5): 19cm(?)/20cm/21cm Arm Length: 15cm Thigh Circumference (H/C): 15.5cm/13.6cm AP torso numbers run 1cm higher due to a "fat" trunk but are shaped similar to Obitsu S/M/L busts. "C" torsos are close to O50 dimensions and wear most O50/MDD bottoms while "H" torsos wear DD bottoms like AZO2. Azone 45 Hips: 21.0cm Waist: 14.0cm Bust:17.5cm Arm Length: 13.5cm (much shorter than standard Obitsu) Thigh Circumference: ~12.5cm (estimate) Obitsu 48/50 Hips: 20.0cm Waist: 14.0cm Bust (S/M/L): 17.0cm(?)/18.5cm/20.25cm Arm Length: 15cm Thigh Circumference: ~13cm (estimate) Volks DDP Hips: 21.0cm Waist: 13.5cm Bust: 17.5cm Arm Length: 13.5cm <-- (This is MUCH shorter than the Obitsu, so watch out when buying long sleeve shirts that fit a DDP) Disclaimer: These measurements were pulled from a mix of sources + my own measurements. I don't guarantee their full accuracy.
  12. (Disclaimer: I'm a customer with no affiliation with the company.) What does Dollypop make? Dollypop makes aftermarket outer skin parts for Obitsu-based dolls, most notably: A 3-piece torso that greatly improves upper-body flexibility for posing Thick thighs similar to those found on AZO2 and Angel Philia Pre-assembled 48/50cm Obitsu bodies with said parts Unlike the current Obitsu vinyl, Dollypop's parts are made from a soft, thin vinyl similar to what Obitsu offered prior to the switch to semi-rigid vinyl. The softness is key to achieving the flexibility that's advertised. Like Azone and Angel Philia, Dollypop contracts out production to Obitsu. Who's this for? Dollypop caters to a few specific needs: Those who want a more flexible, poseable doll Those who want a curvy doll similar to AZO2 or Angel Philia. 3-piece Torsos Dollypop's main product is a modular 3-piece torso consisting of: Chest parts ("bust") Abdominal/belly parts ("abs") Hip parts ("hips") The pieces are sold separately to let you mix and match for your needs. Each part comes in 50cm and 60cm variants, and the busts come in various sizes. Dollfie, Obitsu and Smart Doll all default to 2-piece torsos that split between the chest and lower torso (abs + hips) for a balance between aesthetics and flexibility. Dollypop splits that lower torso piece into 2 separate parts (abs + hips) to allow much more flexibility when bending the torso around the waist. This comes at the expense of aesthetics, and if that matters a lot, seamless silicone dolls are probably what you'd want to look at, but they have their own set of idiosyncrasies. + = One noticeable gain in flexibility is in bending the waist and sitting down without the doll reclining or losing the pose, as it often does with AZO2 in particular. However, a sitting pose with the legs folded in, while improved over before, isn't as flexible as it could be. However, the biggest gains are in the torso itself. By increasing the pivot points to two, this allows each part of the torso to pivot INDEPENDENTLY from each other. In the middle photo, I'm rotating everything above the hips. In the third, I'm rotating the waist to the right, then rotating the bust back to the left for a an expressive, "S" shaped pose. Hip/Waist Measurements Dollypop torsos have considerably slimmer waists for improved flexibility. Because of this, loose or high waisted bottoms may sit low, directly on the hips. The 60cm hip part is used in lieu of the 50cm hips if you want a "curvy" girl or are converting from AZO2. However, you must still use the 50cm abs part -- the 60cm version won't fit. Busts Dollypop offers 5 bust sizes (50SS - 50SL - 50ML - 50L - 50 Huge). Although the busts will nominally attach to Obitsu and AZO2 torsos, they may gap or do strange things when the torso is bent due to a shorter height. This table tells you roughly what bust is equivalent to one you already have from the perspective of clothing fit. For example, a 50ML will fit like an Obitsu Medium / AZO2-C. The 50 huge can be seen at different angles in this DollDreaming review. This Twitter account has many clothed pics of the 50 huge. AZO2-C on the left, 50L on the right. Besides the size difference, the muscles around the neck slope noticeably upward for a more mature look. Thick Thighs Dollypop sells thick thighs similar to ones by Azone (AZO2) and Angel Philia. They're similar in thickness to AP type-H (around 15.75cm), but they appear more slender due to a gentler curve and longer length (1cm longer than 50cm Obitsu). Besides the added girth, the Dollypop thighs improve the range of motion in the lateral direction (side to side) to match up with what a human can do. It's much easier to swing the shins to the side when seated. Because the thighs are made from soft vinyl, they readily deform, making them more apt for poses where the legs or shins touch. However, they aren't as flexible as what Angel Philia torsos allow due to AP's softer skin and shorter limbs. If you want the most flexibility to squat or kneel, this isn't it. Dollypop thighs can only be attached to the Dollypop 60cm hip part (as well as Angel Philia C/H torsos). They won't attach to the 50cm hip part or to a vanilla Obitsu or AZO2 torso without heavy modifications. Now for some pics with Mai! The longer length and curvier cut looks great with a mini-skirt. Mai's been wearing this same skirt all along, but the longer legs + curvier look gives a really different impression. As expected, the thighs fill out shorts better too, to the point where she has trouble slipping into her Azone pair of denim shorts. On the left is AZO2, and on the right is with the Dollypop thighs.

They communicate in Japanese and will e-mail back a response both in Japanese and machine-translated English. How to Install the Parts In short, it's easiest to install if you disassemble your doll. I did not need a blow dryer, but you may need one to remove the existing parts. You do not need it to insert the DP parts since they are already so soft. Remove the head. Remove the arms, then the bust. Detach the chest skeleton part from the spine. A twisting motion helps. This makes the abs/belly part MUCH EASIER TO INSTALL. Detach the knee / shins / feet from the thighs. Remove the thigh skin from the hip joint. This may require a blow dryer. You could instead remove the entire thigh instead, then the skin, but I've found that the groin joint has a tendency to fracture when doing this. Now, you're left with the torso and spine. First, remove the 2 hip joints. Then, this is the hardest part. Remove the torso skin from skeleton. What worked for me was getting one peg side inside the skin, then pulling out the rest from there. Now, you've disassembled your doll. First, insert the hip skin around the skeleton (the reverse of step 7). This will be considerably easier! Then insert the belly skin over the spine. Re-attach the chest skeleton part. The sternum will sit over the belly skin. Now, insert the bust. Then the arms and head. Finally re-assemble the legs by putting back the 2 hip joints, the thigh skin, then finally the knee joint. Further Reading (I ended up not following this, but this can be useful): https://dolliehsanctuary.com/sanctuary/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=11764 Troubleshooting I can't attach the Dollypop thighs, or they have a tendency to fall off. On a 48cm body or even a 50cm body, the thighs may easily detach. If your doll is 48cm, you'll need to buy a replacement knee joint. If your doll's 50cm or you already have said knee joint, adjust the "upper bone's" position -- pull out the upper rod from the knee joint and re-insert it more shallowly.

    Hello from a big doll fan!

    Hello! I’ve been collecting BJD since 2005 and have always been fascinated with the larger ones. From biggest to smallest, I have an Obitsu 150cm, a Parabox Otocolle 110cm, two 110cm Dollmore Trinities, a Spiritdoll Dolce, and several Smart Dolls. I plan on posting a review of the Obitsu 150 when her head comes back from a faceup and I hope to make a gallery thread or two as well of my big girls. I also have a super secret new big girl on the way I can’t wait to post about~ I’m pleased to meet you all and can’t wait to chat!
  14. I have a huge love for vinyl dolls, but to be honest I feel a lot of guilt and anxiety knowing that the vinyls and plastics that make up the dolls I love are harmful to the environment. They are non biodegradable, pollute the air when burned, and are usually not recyclable. I hate knowing that my decision to buy these beautiful dolls will negatively impact the world that future generations will have to deal with. However, I feel like it doesn’t have to be this way. I think we can make a change, so here’s my proposal: Admittedly, it is very difficult for the individual consumer to make an impact on environmental issues since large companies are the largest contributors to pollution by far. However, I think relatively smaller companies like Smart Doll are much more likely to listen to us than huge conglomerates like Apple and Coca Cola. So, if we each contact/email the support services of the doll companies we love, they may actually hear us and consider using a more sustainable alternative to PVC! CONTACT SMART DOLL: https://info.smartdoll.jp/en/posts/support CONTACT OBITSU PLASTICS: https://obitsu.co.jp/contact_us/form_customer Please use the contact services of these companies to urge them to use biodegradable, recyclable, or otherwise environmentally sustainable materials!

I also tried adding speech bubbles to the photos compared to just having text. Was strange getting used to doing, haha! Anyway! Let's kick it off with the arrival of a new girl So yeah ~ We are now 3 once again ~ !

    Modded DDH05/Obitsu/Angel Philia Hybrid

    Hi, I'm new here and wanted to Share photos of my DD/OB/AP Hybrid. Her name is Morgan. Head: DDH05 modded with miliputt (both subtracted and additive modding) Body: Obitsu50 with AP F bust and C torso. All mods were done by me (wig too!), Head was color matched and painted by local Artist Lilyan.
  19. I couldn’t find a thread dedicated to the discussion of Obitsu-Parabox-Visuadoll-DollyPop dolls, so I decided to create one myself. I put these doll makers together in this thread due to the similarities of their builds and body shape. For that reason, I may refer to Obitsu base dolls as either Obitsu-Obitsu or base Obitsu dolls. For example, an Obitsu 50-03 head on an Obitsu body (not Parabox) would be considered an Obitsu-Obitsu or base Obitsu doll. The differences between Parabox and Obitsu will be explained in later sections. Caution! There is a HUGE wall of information below with very little pictures! Adding and editing information is my biggest priority right now! There may be grammatical errors below! Again, this is a work in progress! I really enjoy sharing my knowledge (I‘m no expert though), so there is already an entire wall of text below! To clarify, if the doll/head/part is outsourced, sold or manufactured by: — This is the beginning of the Parabox section — 1. Parabox (Obitsu official retailer/wholesaler) -This link will send you to its mobile website. -This link will send you to its desktop website. -This link will send you to its mobile inquiry form. -This link will send you to its desktop inquiry form. -Parabox has their own line of character heads, bodies, clothing (and shoes!), eyes, and wigs. 1/3 Character Heads (I only have my own pictures of Luna D to provide here) 1. Luna (Luna D is my favorite faceup design!) On the left is Suzuka/Succubus-chan, in the middle is Meigana, and on the right is Wilhelmina! My first two girls from the left have AP busts (not pictured), but only Meigana has DollyPop50 body parts (also not pictured). Wilhelmina is an Obitsu 60 and has DollyPop60 parts (including the DP50/60 Plump Thighs) These pictures are mine! They all have the same faceup (D) design, but are not identical as their heads are hand-painted individually. — 40cm-47cm bodies and male 50cm dolls are exclusive to Parabox. All 1/3 bodies are priced at 20,000 yen (without tax) and 22,000 yen (with tax). Only the 48cm and 50cm size dolls sold on ParaboxShop are original Obitsu and come with heads which are listed below. Some of the information listed about Obitsu may be carried over to the separate Obitsu brand section. —— Included with the 48/50 original Obitsu dolls are: a 48/50cm body, a blank Mizuki/50-01 or Misuzu/50-02 and a metal base. —The Mizuki/50-01 head is included with the 50cm body. —The Mizusu/50-02 head is included with the 48cm body. Both heads come pre-installed on 50cm neck joints. Obitsu-made heads such as 50-01, 50-02, 50-03, 50-04, and 50-05 are not sold on Parabox. - Parabox sells 1/3 and 1/6 Custom Basic Sets. Regardless of scale, Parabox Custom Basic Sets include an in-stock wig, eyes of your choice, and painted head, wig and doll body. 1/3 Custom Basic Sets are sold for 30,000 yen. Only Parabox-made 40cm to 47cm bodies (including their 50cm male body) are eligible for Custom Basic Sets. 1/6 Custom Basic Sets are priced from 3,800 yen to 6,800 yen depending on their height and whether or not their heads are mask or hand painted. I’m thinking about buying Ares 2.0 as a custom basic set in the future.. There’s this one example of him that got my attention. *If you do not see a head you like available in the custom basic set character section, then you can contact them to place a special request via inquiry form!* —This is my personal experience of inquiring about the absence of the Luna head in the custom basic set section. One day, I was browsing Parabox out of boredom and decided to check out their custom basic set section in case I ever wanted to purchase one in the future. I noticed Luna wasn’t listed as a 1/3 character available as a custom basic set, so I contacted them through their inquiry form to ask if it why she was absent and if it were possible for her to be added as a custom basic set character. Later, they replied to me saying that they could build one as a special request if I wished to purchase one. In short, it is best to contact the shop directly if you have any questions about their products! You may learn something new in the process! —This is the end of the Parabox section and beginning of the Obitsu section— 2. Obitsu/オビツ (the original company/manufacturer) -This link will send you to its mobile website and this link will send you to its desktop site in English. You will need a proxy to order from here. -The available 1/3 doll skin colors are whitey (white) and superwhitey (bright white or super white). However, Superwhitey seems to be a limited time skin option as it is found in their Limited Product section. — Obitsu dolls are available in 48cm and 50cm***. — I would consider Ellie/Elle a pure Angel Philia doll despite her head sculpt having been created by Obitsu. Unlike a painted base Obitsu 50-04 head, Ellie/Elle’s faceup is designed and painted by Quarantotto. It is a matter of perspective in my opinion. -Super white Obitsu 48/50cm dolls are only available for purchase through their site. Parabox does not sell Super White Obitsu dolls or parts as of the moment. -ParaboxShop sells the Obitsu 48 and 50 dolls. The Obitsu 48 and 50 dolls are not available as custom basic sets. -Obitsu offers something similar to Parabox custom basic sets called Semi-order. There is a disclaimer at the top of the Semi-order page stating that the dolls are made-to-order and will take 3-4 weeks to be produced. —Semi-order [dolls] are fully assembled with eyes, pre-painted heads and selectable bust sizes. Semi-orders do not include a wig with purchase which is what sets them apart from Parabox custom basic sets. —You can choose the eye color and design, bust size and body height (48cm or 50cm). The price of a Semi-order doll with tax is 28,915 JPY. —The heads for Semi-order dolls are 50-03, 50-04, 50-06, and 50-07. Every other head except 50-01**, 50-06, and 50-07 can be purchased blank in super white and white. More details are below.. **50-01 (Mizuki) head can be purchased blank but is not available in super white. This may change in the future! The super white skin color has only been out for less than a year (if I remember correctly). Quarantotto is only beginning to release super white dolls such as Mona and Yuuri along with a few replacement parts! I have also seen new characters being released in the Superwhitey skin color! — Speaking of Quarantotto, Mafuyu’s head sculpt, 50-04, is used by Quarantotto for their Ellie/Elle character series. — The 50-06 (Rosalie) head is not sold blank by itself. 50-06 is only available for purchase in white and in super white as a Semi-order doll! —The 50-07 (Manatsu) head is not sold blank by itself! 50-07 is only available for purchase in white as a Semi-order doll. The notice at the top of her page said she would be available until 12/31/2023! Perhaps that has changed. ***The production of dolls ranging from 55cm to 65cm and their replacement parts have been discontinued by Obitsu and thus by the other brands of Parabox, Azone, Visuadoll and DollyPop (uses Ob60cm parts to create the DP58 body). —This is the end of the Obitsu section and beginning of the DollyPop! section— 3. DollyPop! (DP) -Sells Obitsu 48 to 60 bodies with incorporated 3-piece sets -Sells original head sculpts and character dolls -DP dolls are specially sized from 41cm to 58cm in height by using Obitsu 48cm and 60cm as bases. However, the availability of 58cm and similar height dolls is strongly based on the Obitsu 60cm frame parts. This will be an issue as Obitsu dolls and replacement parts over ***50cm have been discontinued! -This link will send you to its website (in Japanese only). I can’t tell if this is the mobile or desktop website. -You may be able to order through me in the future! I want to become a DP English-speaking representative. Sorry!

Azone/アゾン -Here is the main thread for Azone 50 dolls. This thread has been here longer than this one has. -Azone currently sells clothing for 50cm and 48cm dolls. AZO2 sweater dresses can fit curvier doll bodies and busts like AP’s H3 and H5. -AZO2 skin parts are curvy and use the Obitsu 50cm standard shin. Newer Azone/non-AZO2 48cm and 50cm dolls use standard Obitsu 48 and 50cm body parts with the exception of their heads. -This information is courtesy of @nanika! If you are reading this, then thank you! I still have information to add and may ask for your help for this again in the future! —This is the end of the Azone section and beginning of the Visuadoll section- 5. Visuadoll/Vdoll/Wow Factory -Visuadoll has a line of characters: Moegi Blanc, Sola Blanc, Takeshi Oda, and Moegi Obana. This list is incomplete. Visuadoll heads cannot be purchased blank or individually. Newer Visuadolls range from 48cm to 50cm. Older Visuadolls range from 55cm to 65cm in height. Mandarake is an official seller of Visuadoll(s). ***The production of dolls ranging from 55cm to 65cm and their replacement parts have been discontinued by Obitsu and thus by the other brands of Parabox, Azone, Visuadoll and DollyPop (uses Ob60cm parts to create the DP58 body). —This is the end of the Visuadoll section and beginning of the AP/Arcadia/Yamato-Azone-VMF50/Dollcore section— Angel Philia/Arcadia/Yamato-Azone-VMF50****/Dollcore dolls are not included on this list and have their own thread here. Warning! This thread is NSFW (not safe for work) and may have content that is not appropriate for all viewers. Proceed at your own risk! Also, Angel Philia/Arcadia/Yamato-Azone-Dollcore has only sold dolls ranging in heights of 48cm to 50cm. — I would consider Ellie/Elle an Angel Philia doll because her faceup is different from the Mafuyu’s painted head on the Obitsu website. It’s a matter of perspective in my opinion. I will find the link to K-2’s history post of these above brands and post it here once I find it. ****Super Sonico is a good example of the Azone-Yamato collaboration. Although Super Sonico along with the other VMF50 dolls have been sold out and discontinued, she is still on the Azone site! I’ll see if I can find the link. —This is the ending and disclaimer of this post— Disclaimer: The list above is not a mandatory set of rules to follow, but a guide to what this thread is here for: discussing them and their quirks!

    My First Returns ~ !

    ??? - "Hello? Is anyone here? Mama?" ---- ??? - "It was such a long trip too, I thought someone might come to greet me after all of this time away." ---- Setsuna/Haruhi - "SURPRISE!!!" ??? - "Ahh!" ---- Welcome home, Tsubaki. ---- Setsuna - "Yes, welcome home. I'm fairly new here but I've heard a lot about you." Haruhi - "Yeah! Mama has been talking about you all week! So we came up with a plan to throw a celebration party for you." Setsuna - "We had planned to get a cake but... it didn't work out." ---- Tsubaki - "I've heard about Haruhi, but you seem to have arrived while I was on the flight here." Setsuna - "Oh! I'm Setsuna. I came from Belgium so I know how bad flights can be. You came from America, right?" Tsubaki - "Yep, that's right! I've been living with Papa Billy during my studies, however, we felt it was time that I returned to Mama." ---- And I am forever grateful that you were able to come back to England, Tsu-chan. Was the flight okay? Tsubaki - "It was fine ~ I had all of my Hello Kitty friends to keep me company and I was insta messaging Mamimi the whole time." ---- Haruhi - "You've been studying abroad for 7 years, right Tsu-chan?" Setsuna - "You really catch on quick to nicknames, Haruhi..." Tsubaki - "Indeed. I left England back in 2013, so, this makes me your big sister! I also have the oppai to prove it." ---- Haruhi - "Is that how aging works in this world? But I'm over 200 years old... this can't be right." ---- I'll leave you girls alone to get to know each other. I'm sure Tsubaki is tired from her journey here. Tsubaki - "You're leaving already, Mama?" I have a present for you later, Tsu-chan. Since it's a welcome home gift, I'd love for it to just be us two. ---- Tsubaki - "Oooh! A present! I'll be looking forward to it." Play nice, children ~ ---- Some Time Later: ---- Tsubaki - "So how long have you both been staying at Mama's?" Setsuna - "It's been about a week for me." Haruhi - "And just over a month for me." ---- Tsubaki - "Well, I'm glad that I've come home to you two. Before it was just me and Mama, which was nice, but sometimes it was a little lonely." Haruhi - "You won't be lonely with us around! Isn't that right Se-chan?" Setsuna - "Of course ~ we're your family now. Did you have any sisters during your time in America?" ---- Tsubaki - "Oh man, yes! It started with about 14 of us and now there's over 100! It was fun to meet them all. However, it's really nice to be back here too. It's a lot more pink than I remember though." Haruhi - "Isn't it great? I really like it." ---- Tsubaki - "Oh, do you guys like Hello Kitty?" Haruhi - "The cat on Mama's curtains?" ---- Tsubaki - "Yeah. I used to collect these, perhaps you two could help me collect more." Setsuna - "These are cute." ---- Haruhi - "What if I started an even bigger collection than you!" Setsuna - "Haruhi, this isn't a competition." Tsubaki - "I appreciate the spirit ~ but we can share these now." ---- Okay, my errands are complete. Are you all getting along? Haruhi hasn't cast any spells or summoned 50 more girls to make Tsu-chan feel more at home? Haruhi - "That's a good idea..." Setsuna - "Haruhi, please don't." Tsubaki - "We've been getting along swimmingly, Mama! I think we'll be thick as thieves faster than you can say meow." That's good to hear. Once again, I'm really happy to have you back with us Tsu-chan, I hope you won't get too home-sick. ---- Tsubaki - "Aww, Mama. I'll miss everyone so much, that goes without saying, but my home is here. I've missed you as well." How about a group photo to commemorate this special day of Tsubaki's return to us? ---- Setsuna - "That sounds like a lovely idea." Haruhi - "Let's do it!" ---- Welcome home, Tsubaki. ---- ---- ---- And because words can't describe how grateful I am that Tsubaki was able to return ~ here's a selfie of us together! Here's to many more shenanigans, these girls are growing in number fast.

    AlisonVonderland's Dolls

    Hello! I'm still a bit new here at this point. But I was very excited to start sharing pictures with you of some of my dolls. Since I have a lot of hybrids I thought a mixed photos thread might just be easiest. First up let me introduce Summer: ddh04 (painted different color) on smartdoll cocoa cortex body. Eyes made by me, Faceup by me, the hair she's wearing here is made by me too, as is her dress. I felt like she was a kind of out there idea at the time but oh how glad I am I did this because I just love her so much 😂❤️

    Extra neck frame parts too tight?

    So I ordered one of the 50cm Neck Frame parts from Hobbysearch so I could stick my SmD Genesis head on one of my AP bodies. It fit well...but it turns out it fit a little too well, because when I went to take the head off today to put a different shirt on them the head was nearly impossible to get off. It was so tight on the torso frame that I ended up having to heat the whole thing with a hairdryer until I could squish the (thankfully soft) chest parts down far enough on the frame that I could reach the neck to pry it off. I experimented with my two AP heads that came with Neck Parts already attached, and they both pop on and off just fine; and it does feel like the hole where the chest post goes into the neck is slightly bigger on them. I'm assuming it has nothing to do with one of the bodies being 50cm and one being 48cm, because I think the use the same chest/neck pieces yes? TL;DR, why is the new neck piece I ordered as a spare so much tighter than the older neck pieces that came with these dolls, and is there any way to get the frame pieces to fit properly? @K-2?
  25. So I'm pretty new to this hobby and just received my first doll, a Parabox Akari head with a 27cm Obitsu body, and was wondering how loose the head should be since I have no experience (I don't want to mess it up, either!). Right now her head is mostly stable and turns right to left without any issue, but is perhaps a little loose in holding up/down facing positions. I'm not sure how to explain it - basically it takes only a light touch for her head to tilt a little downwards again, and those poses aren't held as strong as right/left facing poses. Is this typical for these bodies? I did notice that the neck joint (I think that's what you'd call it) seemed a little wiggly on its own too. Overall it's not a huge issue but something I want to make sure I'm doing right. I screwed the neck piece in for what seemed like quite a while trying to make sure it was tight enough, and made sure the neck was placed snugly up against the base of the head. I selected the largest neck piece included as well, as it was the one that kept her head the most stable when I screwed it in as far as I could. I was also unsure of what the different sizes of neck pieces mean - the ones that go in the head and are screwed in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
