Time for /doll/! Anonymous Board owner 09/21/2019 (Sat) 16:41:25 No.5 [Reply]
Hello to all doll owners and doll lovers. This is /doll/, a board to discuss all dolls. This includes, for example, ball-jointed dolls (from lines and makers such as the Dollfie line by Volks, Obitsu, A-zone, Pureneemo, Angelphilia, Tokyo Doll, Dolk, Parabox, and so on), fashion dolls, porcelain/bisque dolls, china dolls, paper dolls, rag dolls, dolls of specific cultures, as well as doll-like constructs such as puppets. Dolls of all materials are welcome, as are dolls aimed at all age groups and interests. However, discussion of 1:1 dolls intended for direct sexual contact (e.g. RealDoll) is restricted, and the subject of realistic child-like dolls intended for sexual use is forbidden. Please remember to read and follow the rules at https://anon.cafe/doll/rules.html so we can all take it easy and enjoy /doll/ life. If you are also interested in toys, check out /toy/ on the animu bunker: https://prolikewoah.com/toy/

>>222 >>225 I've been following BJDs for over a decade and sadly not got a single one yet , it's kind of interesting when you think about how they evolved to having double joints and there's been trend returning to the single joint roots. Being mostly a simple toyfag, I used to think that double joints are better because it means more articulation, but then I realize after reading and seeing how not fun/smooth to pose BJDs are, taking to account that their big scale doesn't allow them to interact with most toys and miniatures, I got to the conclusion that BJD first and foremost priority should be aesthetics, that just meant to be big beautiful dolls that you can't do much with. My currently favorite doll body is the 1/4 Myou Doll, it's pear shape and got actual ball joints, it could use more defined detail in certain areas, notably the ankles and the bottom area looks kinda weird and have harsh sculpt to it. If this body was added more detail and sculpted more in the style of that big MSD DZ you posted, it would've been the prefect BJD body imho.
>>236 >how not fun/smooth to pose BJDs are, taking to account that their big scale doesn't allow them to interact with most toys and miniatures I'm not sure how posable you're looking for here, but a lot of a doll's posability depends on her internal structure. I've never owned a strung doll but I'd guess they're differently-posable than those with skeletons because you've got only the tension of the rigging against the joints. I own single-jointed and double-jointed girls and have always found the single-jointed ones a lot easier to pose. There's also the design of the body parts to consider: Angel Philia's balloon-like vinyl shell design means that they can get some nice squish like real flesh because the body parts don't end up levering against themselves, but that can backfire and look unnatural if taken too far. I've posed my very smol girls together with my 1/3rd girls too and it looks cute. Making use of the scale difference for a giantess/minigirl feel is the key, I find.
>>237 I meant for strung dolls only, I imagine vinyl dolls with inner skeleton are very similar to regular fashion dolls and action figures as they both have actual functional joints. >I've posed my very smol girls together with my 1/3rd girls too and it looks cute. Making use of the scale difference for a giantess/minigirl feel is the key, I find Sure thing, but I had in mind more 1/6-1/18 scales figures and accessories. >I own single-jointed and double-jointed girls Nice, can you elaborate what dolls do you own?
>>238 I own five Dollfie Dreams, an Angel Philia, and a Mini Sweets doll.
>>222 muh dick!

(Bi?)Monthly Doll Club Anonymous 11/11/2019 (Mon) 15:33:29 No.89 [Reply]
Anon! Your doll's been feeling a little lonely lately. Why don't you take her down, pose her, and post a few quick photos of her ITT?

This thread is to help us enjoy our dolls instead of letting them gather dust. The club activity is simple: Get (one of) your doll(s), change a piece of their clothing (it doesn't have to be their entire outfit) or an accessory/wig/etc., pose them, and post a photo of them ITT. It doesn't matter how small the change or shitty the photo, the point is to enjoy spending a little time with your doll. Lewd BJDs are welcome too.

The recommended frequency is monthly or bimonthly. If you have one or two dolls, consider participating at least once a month. If you have more than two dolls, consider participating at least twice a month.

I'll start us off with Ellie here. She's an Angel Philia doll who I haven't decided on a proper name for yet. I changed her out of cute blue frilly Volks dress into something a little more Angel Philiaish. I was surprised by how cute she looked in it and ended up taking more photos than I intended using proper lights and so on.

Your turn, Anon!

>>173 A.CUTE.
>>174 Thank you, I'm really happy with how she came out!
>>173 That reminds me: I still need to get hands. Should I go for the deka/big hands or the normal sized ones for a 60cm girl? They pretty much look the same to me...
>>197 I have both. The deka hands work well for photos since they emphasise motion and pose in the shot, but I find them too large for longer term posing by eye. Also, some hands are only available in deka. Are you custom-building your doll, Anon?

Who is the best standard and why is it Miko?

Why did Volks decide to make Towa a brave and stunning breakthrough for downs syndrome sufferers?

When will 2B finally fucking come out?

Just how dangerous is the Ribbon/Coron combination?

Will your latest super-cute clothing piece finally be the one to leave a big enough stain that you'll finally pull out the acne cream?

Doll Backstory/Product Writing Anonymous 01/20/2021 (Wed) 02:13:14 No.213 [Reply]
What do you think of the personalities, stories, and other such writing some companies put forth to help sell their products? Do you have a story or personality you've given to your dolls yourself? Does this help sell it to you? Or just share notable ones you've seen. I'm amused by this one, as it first reminds me of Deus Ex, but then is more anime and reminds me of SaiKano (or something like that, saw it 10 years ago). It's kind of really silly. Simpler ones endear me to the dolls more than complex ones.

I usually find companies' doll blurbs to be pleasant enough. I think Volks' blurbs strike a good balance considering how bare-bones they are. Danny Choo's are a great example of what not to do. As for my own dolls, I do assign them personalities and character. It's not a conscious thing on my part, I just kind of let the doll manifest as I look at her, dress her, and pose her. One of my girls turned out to be kind with a quietly lewd streak (she always seems to have her hands on the others), another is a grumpy door kicker, a third is mischievous, a fourth is a simmering little sexpot who has no actual experience and has her bluff shattered easily, and the other two are character dolls who haven't yet gained enough of a signature for me to tell them apart from the characters they were made for. I also have one Mini Sweets doll whose only personality in my mind is "smol". I've seen other people go to great lengths in their doll profiles, some scarily so. If that's their thing then more power to them, I says.

How'd you get your first doll, anon? What's she like? Pic unrelated.
>>160 Bought my Libidoll in Japan. First discovered her the year before, only now had the extra income!
My first doll!!! A Christmas/Birthday present just a couple months ago. Pics taken at bf's family's house while we were spending Thanksgiving there. She isn't the priciest—I wouldn't want to get something too extravagant at first—but she is cute and I like her. Have had to brush her hair a lot, but I enjoy it. She came with two dresses but the second does not fit even slightly, for some reason. I considered naming her Nettles, but never really decided.

My first was the DDdy standard Miko (no longer sold). I'd wanted a doll for a while and decided to go with her because I found her very cute, plus I thought the Dynamite body's proportions were comfortable. These quick photos are from when she first arrived, with her box behind her and her packaging under her. She hasn't worn her standard wig for a long time. I still love her to bits, probably still my favorite. <3 I replaced her body recently to have the new f3 skeleton. >>216 She's cute! I love her dress with matching shoes and her face has the classic air without tipping into the heroin addict look that some modern resin falls into. What maker is she from? I can't tell if she's resin or vinyl. >She came with two dresses but the second does not fit even slightly, for some reason. That's really strange. Quite unusual for the makers to bundle anything that isn't made specifically for the doll.

Hey I don't know much about dolls atm, but I discovered faceups today. Does anyone here have any experience at this kind of thing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KedU00MYvTQ

>>181 >Why is she so smug? Because resting bitch face was all the rage during the 60's. >Why is she so furry? Well, according to knowledgeable John K ( https://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/2008/12/apealing-or-unappealing.html ), furfags were created during 1970's due to movies such as "Lady and the Tramp" and "Bambi" as one of the many great "contributions" of the mouse Disney. My guess is Hasbro wanted to make *a doll that would stand out in the sea of human Bild Lilli KO and that includes, Barbie. There were fashion packs for Peteena. If you think her furry aspect is the most distrubing fact, well you might take a look at her front croch that look like another ass. I find myself agreeing/relating to this *notion, as I do find furry fashion dolls aesthetically interesting and intriguing. I wish we had one currently running; Pinkie Cooper by Barat creator were great, but sadly the line failed. There was also Wild Childz prototype line that never got released - https://bibliogram.snopyta.org/u/wildchildz/ . List of furry doll lines: Gorgeous Creatures by Mattel, Catwalk Kitties by Lanard toys, French Kitty by Madame Alexander, Pinkie Cooper by The Bridge Direct (bought out Basic Fun and took their name). If someone know more please mention. P.S. What dolls you do like/collect?

>>185 As someone who actually own dolls, I am more than agreeing. You know even if you don't own any, you can still discuss about it and maybe later start collecting yourself...there have been many great dolls this year.
