  1. I couldn’t find a thread dedicated to the discussion of Obitsu-Parabox-Dolly Pop (DP) dolls, so I decided to create one myself. I put all of these brands together in this in thread due to the similarities of their body shapes. To clarify, if the doll/head/part is outsourced, sold or manufactured by: 1. Parabox (Obitsu official retailer/wholesaler) -This link will send you to its mobile website. -Parabox has their own line of character heads, bodies, clothing and wigs. -40cm-47cm bodies and male dolls are exclusive to Parabox. All 1/3 bodies are priced at 20,000 yen (without tax). Only the 48cm and 50cm size dolls sold on ParaboxShop are original Obitsu. 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 are pre-installed on 50cm neck joints. - 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, painted head and a doll body. 1/3 Custom Basic Sets are sold for 30,000 yen. Only Parabox 40cm to 47cm bodies are eligible for Custom Basic Sets. 1/6 Custom Basic Sets are priced from 3,800 yen to 6,800 yen dependent on body size and head design method (mask or hand-painted). 2. Obitsu/オビツ (the original company) -This link will send you to its mobile website in English. You will need a proxy to order from here. -ParaboxShop sells the Obitsu 48 and 50 dolls. 3. DollyPop! (sells Obitsu 48 to 60 bodies with incorporated 3-piece sets and original head sculpts; sells specially sized dolls from 49cm to 58cm using Obitsu 48cm and 60cm as bases) -This link will send you to its website (in Japanese only). I can’t tell if this is the mobile or desktop website. 4. Azone/アゾン -Here is a thread for Azone 50 dolls. This thread has been here longer than this one. -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 50cm dolls use all standard Obitsu 50cm body parts except for heads. 5. Visuadoll/Vdoll/Wow Factory -Visuadoll has a line of characters: Moegi Blanc, Sola Blanc, Takeshi [last name unknown] 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. Mandarake is an official seller of Visuadoll. Angel Philia/Arcadia/Yamato-VMF50 brands 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! 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!

    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!

    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!
  4. 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!!

  7. So my first vinyl doll, a Pureneemo Emotion with a standard eyehole-less Parabox head in white skin, is on its way to my place. And as I was sketching ideas for her, I thought... well, why make her boring? So I thought about what I could do with her. I really love the Smart Dolls with vitiligo... But they've bothered me for a while, as have most vitiligo dolls. Why do they only ever have a splotch on their face? The Barbie Fashionistas girl is the only one I've seen besides OOAK dolls that have it anywhere else on the body. And also never near the mouth, where I've noticed most people get it pretty prominently. It's always just one over the eye. So I've decided my Neemo deserves better. When I first get her, I'm probably not going to be able to do much, so the left image is a tentative design I'll be giving her while I get better at faces and doll modding. For the vitiligo mod, I'll be masking her body in specific places with tack or masking fluid, while she's assembled, then disassembling her entirely, finishing up the masking so that it's seamless, and then spraying her down with a deep brown vinyl dye. I'll then be using a dilution or acetone to get her palms and the soles of her feet to a proper, accurate color - this has always bothered me about black dolls, too. I haven't decided if I'm simply going to paint her eyes on or modify the head to feature eyeholes and a sculpted mouth. I'd really like her lips to be nice and full. The skin pattern above is just a tentative design and will probably be changed - I'd like it to stay true to the typical patterns you'd see on a real person, even though it's impossible for two to be the same. I was able to find a vinyl dye that will work on both the plastic and vinyl parts of the Pureneemo, so no visible joints should be mismatched with her body color... But if, after some testing, I find that the plastic won't match the color, I may just incorporate all the visible white plastic into her "spots". I also have a pack of extra hands, so hopefully I can get all her extra pieces to match each other. Very excited for my girl, and if she works well, I may start selling dolls like this. edit: I'd like to state for the record that I am neither POC nor do I suffer from vitiligo and this is not me attempting to be woke. I just think it'd be cool to do. If you believe I shouldn't be making a POC doll if I'm not POC, well... Noted. But I can't change myself any more than you guys can.

  10. When you’ve got multiple floating heads without bodies but still think it’s a good idea to start yet another project XD I decided to create these two girls’ characters while I was having a bit of a stressful time trying to complete my multitude of assessment tasks for my Masters that were all due at the same time. I’m the type of person that can’t shut down my brain and it just kept going around in circles and driving me mad so I decided to draw, thinking it would take my mind off work for a little while. Thus Sayumi and Shiori were born! Every time I felt the stress creep in too much I’d sit down and draw little sketches of them and it was just a fun way of switching off. The more I drew them the more I wanted to turn them into dolls so now that I’ve completed this semesters work and am on a break I thought; why the heck not? I’ve just ordered their heads tonight so thought I might as well create (yet another) thread here! Meet Sayumi and Shiori! Sayumi is my Yami Kawaii/Menhera cyclops girl. She comes across quite cool and unfriendly to most people but she’s actually just pretty shy and is uncomfortable being around a lot of people. Despite her shyness she has a habit of standing up for people who are being bullied (despite never standing up for herself) and ends up in fights which is why she is more often than not always covered in injuries and bandages. It doesn’t bother her though since it adds to her Yami Kawaii/Menhera style. It does unfortunately make her seem even more intimidating to those around her so she doesn’t really have any friends. That is until she meets an equally shy and eccentric girl by the name of Shiori… Shirori is my Fairy Kei clad human/cyclops hybrid girl. She has a third eye on her forehead which she is blind in; a genetic defect due to being a human/cyclops hybrid. She has a hidden much bubblier and cheerful side that comes out when she pretends to be a magical girl, a pastime she keeps secret and is a bit embarrassed about. She wears cute Fairy Kei clothes as a subtle acknowledgement of her childishly fun pastime. Outwardly though she is painfully shy and doesn’t talk much which has resulted in her being isolated by her peers, being half-human certainly hasn’t helped with the issue. This all changes when she meets the cool but very kind and brave Sayumi… ~*~*~ Obviously a lot of modding is going to be required here and below is how I’m hoping to mod them, along with a rough idea of what I want their face ups to look like. Here’s hoping I can pull it off! Sayumi's head is a Parabox Hime Ane and Shiori's is a Parabox Sleeping Princess. Clothing wise as mentioned above Sayumi will wear Yami Kawaii/Menhera and Shiori will wear Fairy Kei. At the moment my primary focus will be modding and painting them once they’ve arrived. If they turn out I’ll then work on buying their wigs and making their eyes. Then the saving for their bodies and clothes will begin. They’ll be the last vinyl project I start work on for a while since I need to focus on getting my other floating heads their bodies (this includes from my resin family too!)

    Hello! I'm Al!

    Hello everyone, I'm Al and I'm quite new at keeping dolls. I got my first doll recently - An obitsu body with a parabox Chara head. She's very small and I love her very much. I painted the face myself and it was so much fun! I'd love to do it again soon! I'm looking for some anime-styled eyes that fit my chara head, but no luck so far :( I'm also looking for some clothes, but i'm very anxious about something i get not fitting. Other than that, I love dollfie dreams! They're out of my budget for right now, but I definitely want some in the future. I'm super new at everything, so please correct me if I say something incorrect! I love to learn the in and outs of things!!!! This turned out kinda ramble-y but it's nice to meet everyone!
  12. I've owned a Kagamine Len DDS for a few years now but I found myself wanting a younger boy body, so I decided to order a 45cm boy body from Parabox with a Hime Ane head. I fell in love with the gentle look of the face. Parabox originally sent me a female body by mistake however they responded quickly to my emails and sent me new parts to make a boy for free (and with EMS shipping!). The body has a different feel than DD bodies. The vinyl feels a bit rougher, and the joints are more visible than a DD's. The head is flatter than a DD head as well, he definitely looks best from the front. You can definitely tell the doll is cheaper but still I would say the overall quality is very good. One advantage he has over DD is that he's a little more flexible with poses, the magnetic feet are great for keeping him in standing poses long-term as well. I do also like that the eyes snap into the head, it's easier to keep them in place. Here are some direct comparisons between the bodies. The Obitsu body is paler and has less definition than the DD. I do like the more subtle definition on the Obitsu, it suits the young and cute look. Len and the currently unnamed Obitsu make a cute pair I'd say. While I currently don't have any clothes specifically for him, he doesn't look half-bad in Len's Senbonzakura outfit. I'd like to get more into the DIY aspect of dolls so I'm currently in the process of making him a Laphicet outfit from Tales of Berseria.
