Let's discuss about Dollfies(or similar dolls) and post pictures about them.

I like to collect random things. My latest thing is a Dollfie, more or less a 60 cm doll with ball joints joints. At first (a few months ago) I disliked anything with ball joints, they just seemed awkward. Then I got a few Figmas and I started to notice the joints less. Some friends from another forum introduced me to them. Super Dollfies still scare the hell out of me; they look a bit too realistic for my tastes, but the Dollfie Dream line is more anime based and is rather cute.

There are many pre-made ones like Yoko From Gurren Lagann and Rin and Saber from Fate/ Stay Night, but I decided to create one from scratch, this includes painting everything on the face, attaching the eyes, etc...

So, I introduce Yuki.

Yuki and her Momiji doll "Soul"

For anyone with questions about Resin vs. Vinyl, please see this post:

Haven't been on here for ages but I wanted to see if badges were being mailed yet.

Generally, a head for a 40-50cm is going too look small on a 60cm body, unless the head is of similar measurement to the 60cm head. The diameter/wig size should give you an idea if you compare the 2. Also, smaller heads are usually designed for smaller bodies, and often the neck hole is going to be to small on a 40cm doll's head to fit on a 60cm doll's body.

Vinyl or resin is up to your personal preference. I prefer resin because it is more life-like in appearance, I like the weight, and resin sculpts tend to have more detail, but I like more realistic dolls. Vinyl will stain easier then resin, even if you coat it with MSC (Mister Super Clear) or Volk's ZM spray, but it won't break as easily either. It is true that resin will yellow, but most doll owners find that its more of a "mellowing" of the color and quite pleasant - it is the result of the red pigments in the resin breaking down and will eventually reach a point where it stops. Very few dolls will become extremely yellow - french resin is more transparent so it is more likely to turn more yellow, and most companies use urethane resin, which will not yellow as much. Yellowing and stains can also be fixed with a quick sanding, which will not work on vinyl dolls. Vinyl dolls are quite cute, lighter, and usually less expensive then something of the same size in resin. They are not as customizable though, as you cannot sand or carve into the vinyl with good results. It really depends on what you are looking for in a doll.

Never use anything with oil in it for face-ups - this includes human make-up, any paints that are oil based, oil pastels, and especially permanent markers. The markers will ruin the doll by seeping into them (whether they are vinyl or resin) and eating away at their skin and bodies. Anything oil-based will do the same. Acrylic paints and chalk pastels or raw pigments are the usual recommended materials for doing face-ups. These will not damage the doll unless it is not sprayed with either aforementioned doll sealant, as they can stain the doll's face. I believe vinyl dolls absorb color more easily, so this is even more important for them.

If you want to do more research, I highly suggest going to Den of Angels, which is the largest doll forum in the world. There are pictorial databases of most molds available and even a new section for people who are just joining the hobby. Many of your questions will be answered there :)

*edit*
forgot to mention that you cannot usually buy dolls in kits unless a company has a kit event. DOA is an excellent place to go if you are looking for a second hand doll, and once in a while people are selling their kits.

Aww Yuki is so cute :D That hapi is pretty good too!

Ahh I really wish I had a dollfie! I've always had my eye on Dream of Doll's D.O.I model Crush. He is so amazingly sexy~
I also have my eye on Rosette School of Doll's Marguerite. She is so adorable but I have to save for Crush first haha.

I've got a 60cm Obitsu body. Head, wigs, eyes, & clothing all shipped out yesterday so I should have pics in a week or so. I've also got a male chest, but that'll be for my girlfriend's dollfie.

:lol: That's fine. It gives me something to do other than wonder where my packages are. I don't care that I only ordered them Sunday, I defy logic & want them to arrive today... even the one shipped from China.

Well, my weekend has come and I have a mission:
Make a 1/3 scale DS system. If it comes out well I might make a cast of it and make it in resin or other things.

Sounds awesome.

Head & eyes arrived today, I noticed I need eye putty. Since I'll already be looking, any suggestions of what/where brushes & such to get to do a face-up.

Eye putty, easiest is artistic kneading eraser, or I use the white poster putty. Do not use clays as they may eat the eyes.

for the face-up I used a 0 size paint brush, here is a link that worked for me.

Though I bought my acrylics/ pastels from Volks USA, you can get these at a hobby lobby/ dick blicks.

Just learned about the kneading eraser when I found Den of Angels. Thanks for the link, being able to see picture will be a huge help. I'll check Volks USA in a little bit for acrylics/ pastels.

Also while searching I found How much of a Dollfie freak are you?

I suddenly noticed, I can use my dollfie for almost all my cosplays. I might have to switch to the male chest that I have, but it will be possible. Plus the cuteness of Mikuru or Koizumi carrying a Kyon dollfie :wub:

Don't know what would pair with my TOP SECRET cosplay, but I'm sure I could find something.

I'm actually shocked to say the Dollfie wedding dress costs more than mine. Course I bought mine at Goodwill for a crossplay, so that has plenty to do with the cost.

I finally got the correct color wig for Yuki. It's almost impossible to find a light blue shade anywhere. Dollmore.net/com had it. They ship as fast as Volks Japan, so you get your items 3 days after you order it. They also gave me some cookies to eat...really don't want to...don't look that good...

One thing about blue hair...any photo of it makes it look real blue, in person it's this light blue/purple shade.

Edit: replaced the last photo with one with a better flash condition.

I was cleaning out the basement today and found my kimono patterns and my 1/3 scale beer can (though in the pic I'm guessing its bigger than 1/3). ^^

Yuki tried some "Old Rasputin" but didn't like the bitter taste so she tried something lighter.

Dollmore has a stand and some everyday clothes that I'm gonna purchase early this week. Might even order some new hands from Volks too.

Picking up some more stuff from Dollmore and finding out more about their company.

There is a particular outfit that I want for Yuki but it's made for a doll a little bigger than her. I inquired in their customer service Q&A section and found out that they will tailor one for me for her size at the normal cost. I wonder if they will do this for most outfits as long as they are not limited editions...
Also, since I'll be spending over $50 on this run, it looks like they will throw in a free pair of eyes. Just for special attack photo-shoots I'm kinda wishing for this pair:

Only problem is that the shipping is almost as much as the products themselves this time around. =(
