Most of us don't make the dolls from scratch, but they come entirely blank [No Eyes, no Paint on their faces or blush, no hair, no clothes] There are so many eye, hair and paint styles and choices that even though a lot of us have the same base, our dolls look Completely different from one to the next.
Painting the faces is an art form in itself, to get such tiny details onto a 3D surface takes soo much practice. I can't say I was great at it when I started XD
Ah sorry I hadn't even seen your question! It got buried in my messages.
Doll Bases come from many different companies, they all are unique, some doll companies like Iplehouse offer dolls that are realistic and have many different ethnicities, other companies like Volks or Luts have more cartoon-ee anime-like dolls.
Just like the companies that offer different sorts of dolls there are many companies that offer different sort of clothes. Tata doll offers Hipster like clothes, Dollheart offers more gothic clothes.
Then again there are some people who make their outfits or dolls from scratch :3
He looks wonderful in his new coat. Of course it's easy to get carried away with ordering things for these wonderful dolls. And I too, am interested in how the Popodoll body poses. I just ordered their Leibo who is a 68cm doll.
Aw thank you so much! It's definitely my favourite BDJ accessory as of late. It's sooo easy to get carried away. I find sometimes I take more joy in buying them things than me!
The popodoll as of late seems to have great pose-ability. There are 4 popodolls in the city I live in, One has wire and is the oldest [2 years old] and 2 of them are 68cm. They pose very well, are very solid and I would defitely recommend them, Especially if you want pose-ability in the toreso. Twisting, bending, slouching, arching, there's quite the range. They're very solid standers too. My friend balanced 2 dolls on top of her popo whole he was standing. The final is 63 and seems pretty solid though I haven't really talked to the owner about that one directly. I would definitely recommend it, it's a great body. <3
I know what you mean about getting carried away. I just bought antique books for two of my dolls. I don't even buy antique books for me!
Thanks for the info on the popodoll body. I really was not familiar with them at all, and I have a 68cm one on order. It's nice to hear that he is a good poser. Some of them are beautiful, but so terrible in that department. I just got a Mecha Angel. He is drop dead gorgeous, but awful at posing.
