A new Tweed Coat, a new pair of ugly hipster pants, a borrowed scarf and a new sweater. He certainly has been spoiled this last little while but fall is his season <3

Why thank you so much!

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

Sounds cool, do the doll bases come from craft shops then and do you make all their outfits ??

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.

Gorgeaus outfit & look for him.. Love that coat. Is this the 68cm or the 63cm Popodoll body? Looks great on him. Skintone match seems perfect too.

Kee I really liked it too! Tweed hipster jackets <3

This is the 68cm, the colour match is about 90-95%, I couldn't be happier ^^ The 63cm is a bit peachier, my friend and I bought ours at the same time and I'm very glad they went more yellow on the bigger batch haha.

I need me one of this kind of jackets for my SDs too. It's awesome!

Thanks for the info! I have a 63cm Popo Zi Mo. He's gorgeaus, but his legs are posing ways pretty hopeless. May I ask, how this 68cm body is to pose? My Zi Mo is really quite pale of his skintone. I wonder if the resin patches have a lot of variation in tone then...

Tata seems to carry a lot of hipster stuff if you're looking! ^__^ They go through stock really fast thoug.

Sure! I'm always happy to share what I know.
A few people in my city have a 68cm popodoll body. Mine and Cats10's body pose pretty well, stand well, balance well, they're just a little weak in the ankles [they bow a bit if they're barefoot], so if you have high converse or boots it fixes that problem. Cats10 can get hers to do crazy things, like stand and balance other dolls on its back.

What I did with one of my terrible posing bodies was wire it with thick electricians wire, the kind with rubber on it and worked it through the calf, bean and thigh. It especially worked in the arms but gave a bit of added stability to his legs as well.

Thanks so much for all the info! I should try that wire thingy on one of my girl dolls who is quite a ragdoll. My Zi Mo's problem is not so much that he could not hold a pose. He's quite good at standing and all, pretty sturdy joints and upper body is an absolute dream. It's in the engineering of the thigh joint. It's weirdly done so that he has difficulties spreading his legs at all when he sits and it also makes him lean heavily backwards if I try to separate his legs at all. In other words he tends to sit really ladylike, yet slouching all the time. LOL! The knees on the new 63cm body have a bit of cumbersome too, but it's really interesting to hear how you find the 68cm body. I may consider getting one at some point myself! Thanks again so much for all your advice & views!! :D I really appreciate it.
