Maybe you should post your own girls. Show us your fashion Do you even have any?

One thing pattern I have noted for awhile now is this. People who own dolls tend to be more understanding of the cost and time it takes to get good at doll fashion and posing. Meanwhile people who post other people's dolls they find on blogs because they don't own a doll or are too self conscious about there own doll seem to be fucking cunts quick to judge.

Do I like every doll I see? No I don't be it sculpt or clothes there are dolls people post I don't like. But they are not mine they are other people's girls. So I try to point out stuff I like or I think is neat about there girls. I am trying because sometimes this place can be really helpful nice.
>>

It's okay Aussie-kun, I appreciate your degenerate lolicon ass and your cute dolls. Mei is my favorite.

I'm new to these threads for the most part, but I don't really understand why fashion-kun receives so much hatred. Nor do I care honestly. If you want to pick fights with people over the way they talk or what they choose to do with their dolls then you're better off on /toy/.
>>
>>15472508
I own two dollfie dreams and post them here often. You have spent far too much time and money on your dolls for them to look as shit as they do. All you have to do is pick up a fashion magazine or visit /cgl/'s casual threads (fuck you could even ask them for advise on dressing your dolls and I bet they'd be a great help), but you don't take any advice, even when it's offered to you on a pillow surrounded by kittens wrapped in a bow of constructive criticism.

The reason you are now so reviled is that you constantly ignore the kind advice we have given over many many months, and a number regular posters have just given up on you. What's the point in being helpful with you? You're never going listen to anything anyone says anyway.

>>
>>15472579
This threads "constructive criticism." is "that's ugly you suck" 99% of the time for along time. It's only recently I have begun to push back and be actively hostile. Why? Because I spent too much time and money making changes to my girls according to people's advice only to keep being shit on. Let's be honest here there is literally nothing I could ever dress my girls in that people here will like. I know this becuse my witch Cookie was over all liked and you people picked the shoes and that shoe advice still had to have insults added to it.

>Tell fashion kun you can't mix-match 2+ patterns in different shades of pink; need to stick to one pattern with solid color accessory pieces

You don't fucking listen. I seriously wish you would just confess to having a mental handicap so we can accept it and stop being mean to you.

And the only reason people liked Cookie is because you bought a pre-coordinated outfit and put the whole thing on the doll, as opposed to that garish mixing and matching you do with your other dolls.

Belt was not ment to fix the "clashing patterns" it was ment to match the hoodie and add that colour to the torso. Also there was no comment on whether the belt was good or bad or if it helped with the hoodie. Just people saying I am retarded for trying to fix clashing patterns. After removing the offending socks no one cared and just wanted the hoodie gone.

Also this image is the volks outfit. I Replaced the striped shorts and Hat with a black skirt and custom made hat. I also added her black and red socks. Not the biggest changes but changes all the same.

You took away the cute shorts and replaced them with a black skirt (OK) and maroon striped stockings (NOT OK). That necklace is far too big and I believe several other anons pointed out how bad it looks as well.

And here is where I give up on you every time I try to talk to you:

>Belt was not ment to fix the "clashing patterns" it was ment to match the hoodie and add that colour to the torso.

So you come here looking for comments on your dolls, and just completely fucking ignore the advice you're given, even when its friendly and in earnest. And everyone commented on the belt and how it didn't help the outfit look any less horrible. You just ignore what people write, read only what you want to read, and then complain when people are mean to you when you ask for comments on your dolls.

I'm going to be going away for the weekend to a picturesque location with distant family. They probably know or at least suspect that I'm weird.

The question is, do I bring Miku, have a photoshoot and remove all doubt?
>>
>>15473921
Introduce her as your girlfriend. Take a family photo with her included.
>>
Well, I decided to check up on Sasara, as it's been a few days since I've had the chance to see her, and she has a little red stain on the inside of her right arm. And here I thought her dress wouldn't stain. I'm going to try rubbing alcohol, hopefully that works. Has anyone tried Volks' stain remover before?
>>
>>15473921
There is something so unsettlingly charming about red eyed miku.

>>15474080
Oh no! That blows. Trust no clothes is my motto!
>>
>>15471353
>Creative hair placement for photos.
Just take a little bit of time to go through some fashion magazine editorial spreads. The nice shit like Elle and Vogue. Its also good research material for creative lighting, color theory, interesting layout, and more lively posing.

I personally suggest having wig oil/spray on hand though cus as you can see the hair likes to fluff out when you try to separate it. Just put a little on your finger and make a gentle pinch/twist motion on the separated out strand. Voila, perfect anime curl.
>>
>>15474102
I should also add that you don't have to actually sit there in the bookstore and read them since most of their older photosets have made their way online. I'd imagine the average /jp/er would be at least somewhat concerning if caught hovering around the Womens Interests rack at B&N.
>>
>>15474080
I'm the one who told you the bodysuit looked bad, so sorry about that!

>I'm going to try rubbing alcohol, hopefully that works.
Try a magic eraser, too. Sometimes a stain will just be on the surface.

>Has anyone tried Volks' stain remover before?
Haven't used it myself, but I've heard it actually works quite well. Has a short lifetime once you open it, though.

Lots of people including myself use 10% benzoyl peroxide acne cream to treat stains. It can take more than a few treatments, but it works and might be readily available, depending on where you live. There's a guide to using it here.
http://www.dollfiedreams.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=1887

If you do pick up some benzoyl peroxide cream, make sure it's oil-free. Don't know if there are any benzoyl peroxide creams with oils in the first place, but generally you want to keep oily things away from your doll, so always be careful anyway.
>>
>>15472900
>>15473004
I agree with this anon. The socks are too dark to match and the necklace is way too large for her. Size aside, it also covers her bow tie.
>>
>>15474102
Interesting! I also need a better lighting set up. Most of my stuff is for landscape photography it's only in the past year I have been doing stuff with my dolls and my outdoor photos look best by far. I think lighting is a major reason for this.

Yeah, I'm going back to that motto, too! Unless it's white of course.

>>15474256
Worst case scenario I can always replace that part of her arm I suppose, but hopefully it goes away with one or the other. I'd be very surprised if such a small stain were hard to remove.
>>
>>15474937
No need to worry about it being permanent or anything. Even dark black stains can come out.
>>
>>15474080
Don't use rubbing alcohol!!

Volks stain remover is just benzoyl peroxide. You can buy it at any pharmacy. Make sure it's 10% and contains no other active ingredients.

Alternatively, you can purchase RemoveZit. It's more concentrated BP cream made specifically for getting stains out of vinyl.

When you put the cream on, put the damaged part under a desk lamp to provide some heat. Check on the doll every few hours. The resin may bubble THAT IS NORMAL. It will go back to normal after removing the cream and letting it sit.

The heat will dry out the cream so you will need to wipe it off and re-apply every so often. The stain will go away with this method. Magic eraser and rubbing alcohol will not do shit.

Well, my doll isn't resin, she's a dollfie dream. I'll try with the alcohol first anyway, since it's readily available to me, but if nothing comes of it then I'll go ahead and buy some BP.

Not previous anon, but I don't know if rubbing alcohol will do anything. It's a topical cleaner, isn't it? If it's anything like the stain I received from Mikuzukin, it's not just going to rub off. It's soaked into the vinyl.

I used the volks cleaner on Miku here. Left is the biggest, baddest stain of the bunch the day I found it. Right is some time after maybe 5 rounds of the volks cleaner. The rest of the stains came out after round three. I should do more rounds for this patch, but I don't want to take her off display for that long. I just think of it as a hickey.
>>
>>15476124
You and previous anon are both right that rubbing alcohol won't do anything but clean the surface. I suggested a magic eraser because occasionally you'll get something that looks like a stain, but will just buff out with ease. Really, you should be giving a quick cleaning to an area you're going to stain treat anyway.

I think Sasara-anon has two bodies, so stain treating won't be painful for him. I always stain treat my girls to "good enough" because I don't want to see them in pieces for too long.
>>
>>15476124
>>15476139

Yeah, I'll probably just stop by CVS or something and go pick up some BP cream then. Her stain isn't too large, literally just looks like the ink from one of the flowers on the dress transfered onto her skin. Almost like a vaguely flower shaped freckle. Also I don't have her old DD2 body anymore, I gave it to a friend of mine. So Sasara will have to stay armless for a little while!

Hoo boy.

Still literally head-hunting. Literally heads, figuratively hunting. Heads feel like a big deal since it basically decides the "personality of the doll along with the faceup.

His facial sculpts are still better than any DD released though..
>>
>>15486788
I don't know about you, but Smart Doll faces look really unbalanced to me. The eyeholes are carved too low and the chin is very odd. There's no jawline and the shape of the head overall is like a narrow egg. Given Volks has had a lot longer to figure stuff out and some of their stuff still looks a little questionable, you can do a lot more with their head sculpts and even unpainted look very dynamic.
>>
So, earlier on I was cleaning Sasara (checking for any other stains, I've got the one on her arm covered in some BP cream) and upon close inspection of her face, I noticed a very small and faint white splotch on her chin. Is it possible that this is some sealant that set incorrectly? It can't be a stain, and I've never let anything touch her face before. I tried rubbing at it lightly with a magic eraser, but it didn't really budge either.

>>15486921
Seconding this. Honestly, I find all smart dolls to be kind of ugly, Mirai being the worst of the bunch...

Keep that shit away from her face.
>>
>>15487280
Well yes, that much is obvious. I thought if it was sealant it would at least fade a bit but it doesn't seem like it did anything. I'm just curious as to what it is.
>>
>>15487297
Is it totally smooth? Like, looking at it with a flashlight at various angles you can't see any irregularities?
>>
>>15487319
It's completely flat against her face. In fact, you can hardly see it under direct light.

Sorry for the rather unglamorous shot; she's in pieces right now waiting for her arm to be cleaned up and her wig to be styled and fixed.
>>
>>15487389
It's hard to see in your photo, but I'd guess it's a light scratch.
>>
>>15487428
Yeah, the resizing totally butchered it. Just goes to show how light it is I suppose. I'm 99% sure she came like this, as I've never even touched her hand directly onto her face before. It's a little annoying but not too bad. I think it might just be a production defect or something.

But Choo still has a ways to go. His smartdoll line i simply don't find them artistic or unique enough to compete with Volks.
Volks puts out a work of art. Choo puts out a generic doll figure toy object.

Man, I just got a smart doll the other day and I'm just not feeling it. The photos all over the web looked so great. I was so excited until I got her in my hands.

What are the different Dollfie Dream bodies? I'm a little confused by DD/DDS/DD3 etc
>>
>>15498012
DD is the standard body type, about 60cm, very lean sculpt.

DDS is the dollfie dream sister body, which as far as I know, is the exact same as a DD, except shorter.

DDdy is the dollfie dream dynamite body, she's shorter than a standard DD but I'm not sure what her height is relative to DDS. DDdy are thicker all around and their bust piece ends higher on their torso than DD, they're meant to look good in underwear and bikinis and such.

MDD are the MSD size version of dollfie dream, they're about 45cm if I recall correctly.

Someone can fill in any blanks for me if I missed anything, but those are the basics and you should be able to guide yourself from there through Google.
>>
>>15498012
DD = main body line, 60cm tall, basically default

DD1/DD2/DD3 = different versions of the main body line, think of it as mk. 3, version 3, etc. - older versions get discontinued when a new one is introduced, but you can still find older dolls with it

DD1 is the first version of the dollfie dreams and the only one that uses strings like resin dolls, everything else has an internal skeleton

MDD = smaller loli doll, about 40cm

DDS = smaller teenage body, about 50cm - just a bit more petite than regular DD

DDDy = curvy/sexy version, 60cm, basically DD with bigger hips and breasts

All the other types have an older version too, so you can find a DDdy with a slightly different body when buying an older doll
(although I don't think they were called DDdy2, I think they were introduced when the main line was at the second version so they went straight from first DDdy to DDdy3, correct me if i'm wrong)

I think they're closer 57 cm if you want to be more specific. DDS's are about 55 cm.
>>
>>15498025
OH wow, I never realized how big these things were, even though I've seen my fair share of doll images. If you made me guess this morning I would have guessed somewhere like 45cm.

I guess when they're in the photos they're always surrounded by doll-size objects, though there are enough everyday objects in the pictures lying around that you'd think I'd have figured it out at some pont.
>>
>>15497977
I kinda know that feel. I know my Ebony would be less loved if it was not for the fact she wears glasses. They help make her look no flat, but when I take them off she looks noticeably flat.

Also the DDH-06 is the best head I have too girls with that head!

It sort of felt like you were attributing to the deterioration of the community on just two people. I personally don't have anything against them. But I just don't understand comments like that.

This is already such a small and niche community. Doll threads on /toy/ are full of nothing but recast debates and bashing doll owners, most forums are ghost towns. I think I speak for most people who lurk this thread when I say that I'd rather not see the only tiny community we have fall apart. Naturally there's going to be tension between people every now and again, and debates are inevitable. But letting that stop participation just leads to the death of the community.

Honestly it's so bad, half the time I can't tell who's shitposting and who's serious.

Just a rough comparison among Volks DD, besides boob sizes.
Theres a significant height difference that I dislike.
Volks DDII are shorter than DDIII

>Scale-wise, is Beatrice really that short compared to Kirika?
>Is Kirika really that freakishly tall compared to others?

Not sure how they compare to Smartdoll, etc.. but its something to think about. It might not scale well if you're picky like me.
>>
>>15503257
It looks like regular height differences between humans, I wouldn't call it freakishly tall
>>
>>15503257
>>Is Kirika really that freakishly tall compared to others?
Isn't she just wearing platform heels?
>>
Well technically, they are all wearing some sort of high heels.

DDS, DDII, DDIII are similar in size, but have notable height/size differences.

I believe a DDS Kosmos would be even shorter than Beatrice if pictured.
>>
>>15503323
All of them are wearing heels, that said some are probably bigger than others

Heres another comparison for height/size.
And generally, DDS amd DD3 has greater joint mobility than DDI, DDII.

Its probably Kosmos' foot attachment that makes her shorter appearing than other DD3s.

Agreed.

Also, go for 12cm if you have limited space and/or want multiple dolls to stand close to each other. 15cm if not.
>>
>Visit y!jp, check for DDdy clothes, nothing too impressive

I would really rather just commission someone for doll clothes than settle for a DD3 body. Does anyone have any recommendations?

If that's honestly how you look at the dolls you might want to try another hobby.

I'm not trying to say I'm one of those people out there that has a 24,000 page backstory for their dolls but I do feel at the very least an emotional connection with each doll I own.

I've been away from them for over 8 months now and the thing I'm most looking forward too when I get back home is being able to see them again.

Thats like saying computer gaming is expensive for what you're getting, silicone, plastic boards, and some metals.

Do Resin dolls exist that are closer in style to a dollfie dream? The resin dolls I have seen have unappealing facial features (To me at least).
>>
>>15509115
Most resin doll will not look like dollfie dreams.

Volks maintains near exclusive control for their dollfie dreams look and appeal.

Thats true provided custom commission jobs are excluded...
>>
>>15509043
It's only going to get more expensive if you insist on printing out your own base body. You'll need to buy clothes, wig, eyes, and commission a face-up from someone. Add that up with all the shipping costs and it will probably be around the same price as buying one of the standard models from the Volks store, which comes with everything listed above. The standard models may not be unique, but they'll give you an idea of if you want to continue with this hobby or not.

2d doll, SQ Lab, and I think Luts has one or two anime-style heads.

I've been a fan of these for years but could never even dream of affording one, what with being neet and all. However I finally got a job and even though it's not much I want to start saving up for a really special doll that I'll devote all my extra time and money to (since I'm not ever gonna have a real daughter )

I've read the faqs and such but I'd like some more in depth information. I'm mostly interested in a custom doll but stuff like the face ups and eyes I don't really know where to go for that and I'm not skilled enough to make them myself. Any other resources I can read?
>>
>>15510460
Just lurk on auction sites for custom heads you like or buy one then commission someone whose style you like to give it a faceup. Check instagram and tumblr for artists and popular forums for reviews. It's pretty straightforward. Some full custom ones can end up being expensive though. There is pretty much nothing else to really tell you; don't know how "in depth" you're looking but this is about as deep as it gets. KK Workshop is incredibly expensive and hard to get a slot, but very series accurate. People on the dollfie dream tag on instagram may have just heads or many heads flipped over and those are faceup artists, so look there.
>>
>>15510530
Okay, I'll check out the auction sites some more. I always liked mini dds the best, and I like faces like the one in the op and >>15502437

I don't think I want to recreate an anime character. I don't have a clear idea yet of what I want except that I want something similar to what I mentioned. I've got nothing but time in the end so I'd like to take my time with this since I want something very long term that I can focus on but I still wanted to find a good starting point. The face and head are the biggest thing for me since I don't think I'll have any trouble picking out clothes and accessories.
>>
>>15510593
The dollfiedreams forum has a section where faceup artists advertise, some do good work and some are just mediocre. Might be worth checking out. You'll need a head first though, if you're set on a MDD then a DDH-01 might be best or you could wait and see how the upcoming DDH-10 turns out with custom faceups.
>>
>>15510637
Do those come out in the 16th or is it just the festival? They look quite nice, I think I'll keep an eye out for those, they might be what I want. I'll also lurk the dd forums. Thank you for all your help.
>>
>>15510729
DDH-10 is probably the direction you'll have to end up going in since it's the most normal looking for a MDD. DDH-01s are nice and all but they do look heavy lidded even when done right or just plain angry which those are pretty ugly and modding them to have more open eyes would rack up cost.

>>15510836

Hell yeah! I'm glad you liked it enough, I look forward to seeing more from her.

By the way, would you be open to the idea of having a friend to talk about dolls with? We can email if that's cool.

Sorry about the mix up guys. I didn't mean to imitate anyone.

was the owner tossing a name suggestion out,

However, whoever is the owner of the new doll, congratulations! She's sweet.

I think I'm going to name her "Kohaku" actually.

Not because of Tsukihime though, but after someone's cat who's name is Kohaku.

Even cuter! I hope we get to see more of her.

In other news, I can't seem to find anyone willing to accept custom clothing commissions for DDs. I have money that needs to be spent on clothes for my waifu, dammit.

Not in the slightest! New content of cute girls should always be welcomed. You're pretty good at photography too, so it's always nice to see.
