  1. 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! You can do more research on examples of alternative materials so you can make more specific proposals to them, or simply convey the sentiment that it is time to look for a better way to produce dolls. Also, feel free to use your social media platforms to raise awareness of this issue and urge others to take action as well!
  2. So I just ordered my first doll yesterday, a vinyl Smart Doll Kanata (Alternate).While waiting for her to arrive I have some questions to ask you guys.General1. What to look out for? Any common beginner mistakes?2. What is your doll care routine?3. Any shop recommendations for doll clothes?Wig Care4. How to maintain the wig? (Come from figure collecting, no experience with wigs XD)Stains5. Do all colored materials stain? or only dark colored ones?6. Do stain prevention garments stop staining or only make it harder to stain? (Have a few dark colored clothes)7. Are there any materials that don't stain/high risk of staining?Thanks!

    Tierparkzone's Doll Photos

    Instead of flooding the Photo Randoms thread, I guess it makes sense to create a new thread to put my photos. So to start off , here are a few nice shots I took a while back:

    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! 😄
  5. Sorry if this isn't the right section for this question! I've posted to a handful of Smartdoll groups on FB, but thought it would be wise to ask here, too. My favorite doll, Kasumi, has a milk Kanata Alternative (smiling face) body and head, and I've realized I want to reshell her soon in a body that suits her (and my collection) better. I have no idea what to price it at, but I do know her head was very limited and that milk is no longer in production. I also have milk elf ears, a body suit, and some clothes. She doesn't have her original eyes or wig. If anyone has any guidance, I'd appreciate it!

    Assorted Vinyl Crew!

    I put together my girls from different manufacturers. Pon (my MDD) is cheating because she's wearing heels LOL! Left to right: Anya (Obitsu 50 whitey head on 1/4 TinyFox body), Bao/Nahida (DDH27 on Dollbot body), Pon (Mini Dollfie Dream), Maya (Kizuna AI on Angel Philia Type-H body), and Chai (Smart Doll Chitose Classic in tea). I love them all equally. They all have their individual charm. I won't keep this post long, but will share what I love most and not like from each company. TinyFox Love: velvety (I don't know how to explain, but it's really smooth to touch), weight is similar to resin, can fit most MSD clothing, smaller than MDDs so she's easier to bring, can hybridize with Obitsu whitey/DD semi-white heads Not a fan of: limited posing Dollbot Love: lightweight, can hybridize with DD flesh/semi-white heads, less "thicc" than mochi-ashi, posing Not a fan of: can get loose - her feet is a little hard to get back on compared to MDD... the neck gap is quite obvious in some angles, and hand joints pop off too easily Mini/Dollfie Dream Love: easily available parts for customization, most clothing sizes fit on them, easily available apparel Not a fan of: can't hold poses too well, but can be fixed with a bit of tightening the joints Angel Philia Love: superior posing! lightweight, can easily hybridize with DD heads Not a fan of: sizing is kinda like DDP/mochi-ashi? so the clothing is quite tricky... it's personal preference, but to me the shorts should be 1/3 sized, skirts and dresses should be 1/4. Otherwise it might be too long or baggy on her. Smart Doll Love: posing, easily available apparel, lightweight, vinyl is harder Not a fan of: limited parts available for customization

    Smart Doll boy clothes?

    I recently got myself a Smart Doll boy body, and it does have different proportions than the girl bodies... Where can I buy clothes that will fit a Smart Doll boy well? Thanks in advance!
  8. Since I purchased my first vinyl doll in 2018, I have sought a peach pai bust after finding old Danny Choo posts singing their praises, as well as seeing them on several Dollfies and heaing even more rave reviews. Unfortunately, finding them second hand, let alone at their original retail price, was impossible, and at the time, I only owned one SmD. These two problems left the item coveted for quite some time. At the very end of 2020/the very beginning of 2021, however, I was given the chance to purchase Peach Pai busts directly from Raji directly. Around the same time werkaze released their MKIII bust, designed specifically for Smart Dolls. Keep in mind this was prior to Adkya Dolls releasing their flex bust for SmD, and while lamenting the fact wersaze did not make them in tea, only cinnamon and milk, it did give me an opportunity to take out my first vinyl girl, an OG milk Kanata and give her the first upgrade she's had since receiving the Large Bust back when 'headlights' were the standard and 'smoobies' were only on default busts. I ordered the wersaze bust December 30th and the Peach Pais (one regular, one 'plus') on January 1st. Both were estimated for roughly 2-4 months, which I was willing to wait for. They both arrived the last week of April. Unfortunately, due to recent family trauma and the USPS losing the wersaze package for over a week in a half, while they arrived around the same time, technically, i did not have time to really check them out until May. The Rajikaru Peach Pais came first, with a shipping notification, so I fully expected them. These were my first silicone busts and I had..... well, lower expectations, despite the reviews. I expected something that would feel sticky, and feel like sex toy grade silicone. However, I was pleasantly surprised. These felt nice, surprisingly high-quality. They were heavy and squishy without the 'implants' in. I do kind of regret getting pink nipples, however, especially on the plus, and I probably should have gotten one in each color--which is why I bought two different sizes for my girls. I also have to admit, I spent the first day taking them out of the package just squeezing them and not actually putting them on my dolls. These are designed and are just as easy to put on as Volks Vinyl busts. You do not need inserts or anything beyond the actual breast implants (or "cutlets", as someone has called them), which really, feel like they're optional and really just added firmness when you squeeze them. Admittedly, one of the reasons I wanted silicone busts is so I'd have something flexible that might let me wear tops and the like intended for smaller busts, an I tested out this theory with some CODENOIR bikinis meant for sizes SS-M. Nailed it. What I didn't nail was Seven's eyes. I switched out her fitter and replaced the bluetac and looking at these pictures, I really regret it. The wersaze bust arrived unannounced, while our regular carrier was on vacation. I eceived no email indicating it was shipped, or a tracking number, and the only indication I had that it might be coming is a partial refund a few weeks prior, which I contacted them about and was told they over-estimated on the shipping (all while not saying whether or when it was shipped out). I was off that day, and instead of a package at the door I received a pink slip in my mailbox indicated a package with the recipient's name being the owner/making of wersaze, not me, the sender as "Hong Kong". And the reason it was not delivered was "due to COVID" . Which was..... weird. I rescheduled it to be delvered the next day, and received no updates at all for over a week. After filing a claim, I got a reply that it would be delivered but I had to be there to sign for the package. ..... and then they literally just tossed it at my front door and walked off. Despite the lighting, I assure you that this is a milk bust (really, it's the lighting, as you'll see). I think the biggest differences is that the wersaze MKIII does require and internal frame piece to keep its shape. It also came with a small ring that you put around the neck peg to keep the head/neck in place, I assumed. It looks a bit saggy in this pic, while taken apart/without the inserts. I did not order this one powdered, or painted, beforehand. s I figured I could try my hand at painting or leave it as is. Without powdering, it was sticky feeling, but not terrible. However, the implants were really sticky, and even left residue in their bags. They also didn't fit as well inside the boobs as the peach pais do, but these are pretty small inconveniences, considering you don't see any of them.

    Custom painted and modded Lelouch head

    Knowing Lelouch was such a rare sculpt, I hesitated to repaint the head. But then, I felt like there was something more to this sculpt so I went ahead and did my customization. I modded the lips to appear smaller, and made the chin less sharp. I also made the faceup with a softer look. I like the fact that watercolor pencils adhere to Smart Doll vinyl better, so I only used watercolor pencils and pastels for this faceup. I feel like he kind of looks more similar to Smart Doll Eiji with this look.
  11. Just found out the reason all my smart doll orders are getting cancelled is because of the very first one I tried to order I had to cancel the order because I couldn’t afford it at the time due to personal reasons, I’m so disappointed and bumed out because I’ve wanted this doll for several years since I was really little and now I can never purchase from the website again, I just wanted to get myself something for my birthday that I’ve dreamed about for years, I just wanted to get the smart doll before it’s too late for me

    Custom DD Towa head on Smart Doll boy body

    I was able to get a secondhand head of Towa, and I thought it would make a good boy head. I wiped off the default faceup and repainted it to look like Noah from Xenoblade 3. I also did the eyes (first photo). I was fortunate to get a secondhand Smart Doll slim boy body in milk, which is a great match to DD's flesh. DD heads have bigger neck holes, so I had to secure the head with a cork. I think it holds up well.
  13. My smart doll order keeps getting cancelled and refunded instantly every time I order, dose anyone know why this keeps happening? I havnt said anything bad about Danny or any hate, I love the smart dolls and have been saving for years to get one, but it won’t let me?
  14. Deciding to give my Smart Doll specific photos a place to live. I do have an existing photo thread of my DD girls also if you want to check them out Anyway, back to the Smart Dolls. Here's my OG Smart Doll girl is Sana She is in the tea skin tone and has her original eyes and wig. I like both on her so I never bothered to change her up. Thanks for looking
  15. I missed out on the Classic Chitose head drop on The Grid (it shows up at select times on the chaos section), and I really wanted her sculpt. I sort of saw it could be possible painting her face to the Mirai sculpt so I can't help but do this faceup on my blank head.

    Free Smart doll Pattern Spreadsheet!

    Hey Guys I have made a spreadsheet to help people find free patterns. I hope this can be useful! I originally made it so I could print out all of the patterns easily when I went to a place with a printer and thought I might as well share it with others. I will add to it as I find new smart doll patterns. Feel free to let me know if you know of other patterns so I can add them too! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hu14aooOT90UyKq_g4YFKlRQVC0NxGY0GN_Tff2O9RQ/edit?usp=sharing

    Kitty's Collection

    Hi! Some people wanted to see my collection on my new post I made. Hope this is under the right category. I'm having slight problems with pictures so I hope this links correctly. Sorry for the bad angles and camera quality. They usually look more organized but I've been moving them around and my maids will sometimes place them differently and I'm too lazy to make them all face forward.

    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 😂❤️
