What clothing style you prefer for AP dolls?

Recommended Posts

Akito

As I got my two Angel Philia dolls, I've started to experiment with custom fitted clothes. As they are quite unique sized, it made me think that is it difficult to find specific style of clothes for them or are some bust/hip sizes more difficult to find clothes than others? I've been thinking of making AP clothing line or just taking commissions at some point (don't have access to marketplace yet, lol) and I'm interested to hear what kind of styles do you like? 

Just for an example, I'm waiting for H3 bust to arrive so I can make Jessica Rabbit dress. I have yet to see will my doll want to own it, but I must make it as I happen to have suitable fabric😅

As one can see in my topic, I obviously prefer sexy/fetish style for AP, cause for me (and Tommy ^^) they're meant to be sexy.

I am waiting for my AP Elle, which has this cute face and looks adorable, but I also ordered H4 bust and a C3 lower torso to be able to make her sexy. Her character will be kind of like an anime, sexy, fetish, V-Tuber with a tendency to cuteness. I hope that works out. Really hard to find clothes, because I never owned and AP and as I read a lot of times different clothes for different body areas fit... I will figure that out later I guess.

I'm interested in a VMF50/AP too, and reading through the forum I saw a general 'difficulty' on pinpoint a specific line of clothes that fits (apart from dedicated ones).

Sometimes 1/4 clothes are just right and sometimes 1/3 are too tight. Especially on the bust and the hips (thighs too?). I'm trying to compile a list of brand/line suggestions gathering all I can find on the subject, and I hope to post something useful in the near future.

Mine are wearing 1/3 skirts and can fit most 1/4 tops - 1/3 tops also fit, but can be oversized depending on the bust size. Eg shirts advertised for smart Doll fit nicely on a larger bust (not the VERY large), and some clothes for our beloved little mdd, mostly tops and dresses. 

(As I like to knit, I make most of their tops myself, though.)

I really like giving them J-fashion clothing! My current girl is a old school lolita! I am having trouble finding clothes that fit and are affordable though, so I think I'm just gonna sew my own until I can find suitable stuff secondhand!

For AP, I think I like a variety of outfits! The maid and schoolgirl themes are always really nice. But I have been meaning to try my girl in more lolita fashion too.

I'm still sketching outfit ideas up for one of my girls, but the other is going to have a housemaid's ensemble - should my neophyte sewing abilities be up to the task. I already have characters in mind for my dolls before they arrive, and most of said characters revolve around a fantasy/high fantasy setting - so getting them appropriate clothes to match can be a struggle.

Especially when my wallet sees a cute, completely out of character outfit and decides it'd look cute on them...

Mai splits between between schoolgirl clothing and casual stuff with an emphasis on cuteness. She's unabashedly cute and wholesome, which goes against the grain for AP, but I was drawn to AP by its flexibility and the thicker legs, which have some of the same appeal that Mochi-Ashi has.

Well so far it's looking like Mayumi's clothing style is going to be more trendy-ish and unapologetically scant.

I'm in the same boat as @chef_mai, I tend to prefer casual clothes, as well as cute and frilly pink stuff. Of course, that's mostly because my sole AP girl is Sonico, and she's got enough sexy stuff out there imo. I like exploring the non-sexy aspects of the character, which I'm sure totally defeats the purpose of both Sonico AND AP. 🤣

The nice thing is that "casual-cute" is covered pretty nicely by Azone's AZO2 series, which fits AP nicely, so I don't really stress about finding stuff. If you want to try making more unique stuff that people can't find with the major brands, I'd look into exploring subculture fashion, like mori girl, visual kei, or shironui fashion. If you want to get really wacky, I'd pay good money for the more "boyish" lolita looks, which would be a cute contrast on a very feminine figured AP.

Stuff that mixes and matches well would be good for store stuff too, if you go that route over commissions. It's very hard to find nice a la carte pieces for AP since all the stuff I find is meant to be worn as a set.

I have an AP Ellie, and because she looks younger than the other AP sculpts, I prefer that she wears something cute, casual, or cozy. Of course I want to emphasize those thighs with short dresses, shorts, and/or skirts!

APs are such a hodgepodge of size that if you can get them to wear anything that isn't a dress or skirt, it's kind of a miracle. My girls weren't sexualized at all, and were forced to share clothes with my resin elves in lieu of their own.

Here, Sundae is in all DD/SMD-scale clothes, except for the lace leggings which are MDD with a stretchy waist. Because the waistline of the rainbow leggings didn't fit, I hid that under an oversized shirt for the baggy look, and no one was the wiser. Depending on what you're going for, her unique size may prove a challenge, but it doesn't have to be a frustration. While I was planning on transitioning into a uniform dress look, keeping her stylish was surprisingly easy.
