Following on from my previous post re: dolls not looking like their characters.
I’ve also seen a lot of people moaning ‘I wish Belldandy was a Dollfie Dream instead.’
I personally think Belldandy really suits her Super Dollfie form and I would rather see her this way than as a Dollfie Dream. I don’t think she would really suit the Dollfie Dream body. I would buy her in a heartbeat if I could afford it, that’s how great I think she is, but as I said in my last post; I’m saving to buy a house so I can’t really justify her ;__;
Still, in order to really test out whether Belldandy looked good enough in resin, I showed her to my brother. Long time Ah Megami Sama fanboy but has never been bothered by dolls. He thinks some dolls I’ve had are cool, but on the whole he doesn’t really care either way for dolls.
I showed him Belldandy and he thinks she’s perfect and in his own words ‘Belldandy isn’t really Dollfie Dream material anyway.’
So there you have it.
P.S I won’t be making a post about Yaya as I know absolutely nothing about her character so I don’t really care :D
DItto. The more I see of her I just wish I could get her. I just have way too many Dollfie Dream priorities at the moment. Every time I see her it’s an ‘awwww’ moment. <3
Since my sister pulled this up on her Pintrest page thinking I’d be happy for the memory, I feel obliged to comment.
Never, in my life, have I held such resentment and loathing against something that thinks it is grand enough to be called furniture. I had one. It was chocolate brown. It sat on the floor yelling out how versatile it could be. Look, I’m a chair! Look, just flip this part down and I’m a wider seat! Look again and if you just move this piece out I can be a chaise lounge! It wanted to be your best friend. Like an overly helpful roommate, too stupid to take a clue to get out of your face.
As I said, mine was brown, and made from a fabric like thick jacket lining. This hunk of glorified foam and fabric was never useful as a chair because you would sit on it and the foam would compress, leaving you at the mercy of the slick fabric. No matter how you sat on it you always ended up slowly sliding onto the floor. If that was all the use I had out of this, I wouldn’t have remembered it more that a weird and cheap curiosity.
I have no idea where we got it from. But it was my ‘privilege’ as the youngest of four to have sole use of it for my bed, at least for a year’s time. My ‘bedroom’ was the narrow hallway where I’d spread this thing out on top of a linoleum floor. Even when this thing was laid flat out, I STILL slid off of it when I was sleeping, instantly woken up by the freezing tiles. I had the joy of being stepped on in the middle of the night by someone going to the bathroom. On school days my sister woke me up very gently by kicking the curved piece until I was awake enough to want to rip her leg off. Often I was too disoriented to do it because my head was bouncing everywhere with each kick.
My last memory of this loathsome object is when I had to clean up my space where all my toys were at this same time. Mom had made my brother give up some room in his room so my toys could be stored somewhere. She went on her weekly cleaning spree and told us to clean our room. I had gotten my part done and straightened all my shelves and picked up my part of the floor. I was proud of myself and sat down on this foam throne to look at my orderly space. I sat there for about five minutes, making a very gallant effort to fight gravity and stay in the chair against it’s wishes. Then I saw a pair of my brother’s dirty underwear sail in front of my face… and land on one of my doll’s feet that was sticking past the edge of the shelf. He insisted that it was his room and he didn’t have to clean it if he didn’t want to. Fighting with him was as successful as trying to sit on that slick piece of stupidity that someone thought was a great idea.
Were those really the ‘good old days?” :/

DRESDEN DOLLS REUNION!
SO really wish I could be there. :( Dresden Dolls & Neil Gaiman is a total double win. <3
I like that dress. Is going to be available in DDdy size? Naiomi looks so cute in it :)
Yes, I can easily make the dress in DDdy size, and I luckily have enough of the fabric left for the dress too. It’s some fabric I’ve had for a long time so I wasn’t too sure if I had enough left. If you’d like I can reserve it for you. :D I’m highly thinking about doing my own version of this fabric so I will always have some available (it’s one of my favorites), but the print wouldn’t be identical. The plus side is that I could have it printed on many different fabric types! :D
Naiomi was actually wearing that dress because it’s what she had on for her birthday. XD The print on her head scarf is one of my own designs! :D I just need to get a better pic of it.
Naiomi’s Closet is opening soon!
Original Dollfie Dream scale fabric, seasonal surprises, and personalized clothing will be up for sale. With 20+ years of sewing experience, as well as an avid DD collector, I look forward to making a unique gift for your special girl. :D
Ok, someone needs to turn these into DD! Naiomi might pin me down and force me to make her the Mismagius one since she is too busy with set design to sew it herself. :/ Even Rainie wouldn’t mind the extra froof of the last one since it is Pokemon! XD
These are just stunning!
Ok, this is awesome. I must find out more. XD And Len and Kaito are adorable!
YES ALL CATS DO THIS! OMG
“uh no you don’t control me, I control you, human.”
Our cat Dimples would do this, often with her claws out. But our big fluffy & strong boy cat Moose would not. Whenever you touch his feet he reacts like, “Ew, ew, ew! Something icky is touching my feet! Don’t touch my foot, it makes me feel all gross and slimy like someone touched it!” *nearly starts crying*
It is hard to believe sometimes that he was a stray cat who left about a foot long scratch down my arm the first time I tried to pick him up. He’s such a big baby.

How to tell if your cat thinks you are an idiot. Check! XD
I have yet to get my first doll, and I thought I knew what my grail doll was, a ResinSoul Mu, but then I found the obitsu 45 cm body. It doesn’t even have a head, or much detailing! You can’t tell the body is a boy body, but I still feel an entangled excitement when I look at him, and dream of…
See this pic? This is Ralph and Tamayuki. Ralph shaved his head and is waiting for his hair to grow back, and Tamayuki is not a cat, he just really loves his kitty tail and ears. Both of them are Dollfie Dream & Obitsu hybrids. Ralph has a modded DD 01 head on an Obitsu 45 cm boy body. Tamayuki is an Mini Dollfie Dream with a DD 03 head and an Obitsu 45 cm male bust.
When I got Tamayuki about a year and a half ago there were less than 8 DD hybrid boys that I knew of, but I really didn’t let it stop me. I knew what I wanted so I got it. It really doesn’t matter what other people think about what you choose to do with your hobbies. Now I have two boys finished (along with my girls) and three more that I’m working on and all of them will have Obitsu bodies.
I can understand not wanting to feel alone, but the Dollfie Dreams forum not only has an Obitsu section, but there is also the Boy’s Club in the off topic dolls section that Tamayuki and his EB Mini friend started.
It’s a hobby, have fun with it and who gives a damn what anyone else thinks! Their opinions shouldn’t determine your happiness.

You said it, “your money” as in mine. Why do you care :)
I’m so glad that the world doesn’t work in a way that personal hobbies are defined by a majority vote BY SOMEONE ELSE. Sure the dolls are expensive, learn to save money or find a higher paying job. For some of us the dolls are worth it. Period.
This so reminds me of a an old couple.
"Fred, did you remember to turn off the stove? I’m not going anywhere until I know the stove is turned off!"
"Fred, did you remember to jiggle the toilet handle so it doesn’t keep running? You always forget to do that. Did you do it?"
"Fred, did you remember to pack your other pair of glasses? I don’t want to be stuck at some restaurant and you can’t read the menu. Those waitresses are always in a hurry instead of taking the time for a paying customer!"
"Fred, did you remember to put your hearing aid in? I bet you can’t hear me!"
