Are the Formydoll wigs good? I ordered the same one Morgen ( a total cutie ) has, only instead of it being in white, it's in red wine. >u< Im just worried the curls and everything will be crushed in the back and the wig will take a lot of work to look right..D: I also wanted to say you are a cutie to the extreme >u< I just recently made the connection of you being the one who works the DZ wait room, that I'm in and yeah.You're super sweet and cool and adorable and *throws fairy dust* Prosper! :3
They’re not the best wigs but they’re not the worst either, in my honest opinion. I love the variety and colours and they aren’t horridly expensive so that’s a plus, for me.
Morgen’s wig, however, has become a little uneven and the curls a little messy. They aren’t horrible to fix and style, though. And I saw that there was a tutorial going around for how to style/fix wigs with some craft glue that dries clear, so that would certainly help too! (I haven’t tried it myself but am considering it in the future).
They aren’t amazing but I recommend them often and would buy from them again. I love the colour that you’re talking about, too, I’m sure it’ll look great! The curls WILL get ruined if you smoosh it too much but you CAN fix it so it’s not the end of the world~
Also hi! Yes that is me haha. Thank you so much for all the compliments.
Just like, how good his posing is, how difficult it is to get him to do stuff/restring, any issues you've had with it, whether or not you'd recommend it. :3
Okay well, my apologies that this won’t really be the best ‘review’ but I’ll at least try to answer these questions and maybe elaborate on my feelings toward the body a bit. If you need to know anything else feel free to ask!
Posing I’m half an half on. He has lots of nice joints and the ones in his thigh pull out and lock nicely, allowing him to hold sitting poses that look a lot more natural. I’m somewhat disappointed in the torso however because while it HAS the ability to lean forward or back, it rarely ever stays in place. The ‘shelf’ so to speak, is very small and so after I pop him back mostly (he has a better time when he’s leaned foward) he usually just goes right back to his original pose. It drives me bonkers sometimes as I’d really like to put him in some poses where he’s not stock straight in the torso. I’m by no means a specialist on this kind of thing though so it may be possible to mod this and make it a bit better.
My other bit about posing is that DZ sends their dolls strung extremely tightly. His arms especially do not give much range of motion out of the box. Usually any type of movement I attempt is met with a snap back unless I strategically manage to lock his fingers onto something else so that it keeps him from moving. Now, that being said, my doll needs desperately to be restrung but I have not gotten around to that yet.
So that leads me to saying that I’m not sure how easy/difficult he may be to restring but my guess is that it wouldn’t be much harder than most other dolls, since there’s no extra pieces like the new DC bodies and also in comparison to DZ, the limbs are not so thin and frail that you have to worry about the difficulty that comes with that. With all that being said in the ways of stringing/posing, I do want to restring him and potentially see if there’s anything I can do to make him pose a bit better. While I don’t think Minifees are the be-all-end-all of good posing, they are a body that I’ve owned before and can safely say that they pose much easier/naturally than the DZ body. But I do think that the DZ body has great potential and is definitely very solid and has no trouble standing and doing basic poses to start with.
In the end, I’ve never really had any extreme trouble with the body. Aesthetically I adore it and is one of the bonuses, for me, to owning a DZ. Because I prefer aesthetically pleasing over good posing, I may not be the best judge, but I think that overall it’s a great body. The detail on even the hands and feet have always been nice, to me, and I really like its size (46cm), it’s not too big but isn’t as small as the Minifee and other slim MSDs.
The biggest challenge you’ll find with this particular body is finding clothing that fits it. This body has a huuuuuuuge donkadonk (which is why I like it) but makes finding shorts/pants/skirts/etc. that actually fit on it a bit difficult. At this point I’ve found it’s usually trial and error and hard to find any one brand or specific person that makes clothing that will fit over the bum. They also have strange sized feet that’s kind of in between MSD and SD, you have to be careful with that too.
TL;DR — I love this body. It has potential to be a great poser and is aesthetically pleasing to see something different than all the slim minis or super stocky MSDs. Clothing can be somewhat problematic but isn’t enough to deter me from it. I really hope that helped and I’m so sorry if it was hard to follow!
Hello ^-^ Sorry if this is rude but.. Are you male? I'm so sorry I'm just confused, and I want to try and speak with you but do not wish to use incorrect pronouns..
Not rude at all! I am male but just for the record, I don’t care what pronouns anyone uses for me. I won’t be upset or offended if the wrong ones are used or if anyone assumes I’m one or the other. So please, don’t worry about that! Still, I appreciate the respect and attempt to find out first. (I have this same feeling toward any of my past/present/future dolls as well, I don’t mind if anyone is wrong or confused haha)
Hope that helps, Anon!
Find him in the bat’s mouth.
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week. ☆☆
Noticed this is how Morgen is sitting when I’m not taking photos of him and thought it was rightfully creepy that hes holding his own head.
What are your future doll plans? I must say Morgen is very beautiful, and so are your pictures! I used to be scared of the sculpt but for some reason yours doesn't scare me.
I hope no one minds the incoming spam… I won’t tag anything either. I kind of made that post and then immediately after was whisked away to set up our Christmas trees so forgive me for not responding sooner! But I am appreciating all the asks, thank you guys so much ♥
And THANK YOU Anon, that means a lot to me. It always fills my heart with joy when I hear that others who may not have liked his sculpt are more inclined to enjoy it after seeing Morgen. I’ve also been really down on myself lately about my pictures so I’m glad you like them ♥ thank you!
As for future doll plans, I’m going to get a doll I’ve been looking at for a couple of years (well the head really, going to hybrid it on another body most likely). I don’t want to give away all my secret plans just yet though but it’ll be a girl and she won’t have Morgen’s creepy aesthetic. I wanted something more girly and pretty but not exactly something that I see a lot in the bjd tag either.
That moment when you’ve finally concepted the character for your next doll but have no money to purchase her.
We can be ghosts now.
We don’t ever have to make a sound.
Pull my little ribs around you.
The lungs of me be crowns over you. ♔
I lie in wait,
hush little heart. 💚
Just throwing together some leftovers, I don’t normally write anything here but thought I would this time~ I’ve been really wanting to share the back of Morgen’s outfit so I thought that it’d be a good addition to the leftovers.
And thank you to everyone for all the recent likes, reblogs, and follows. Along with all the kind comments and tags people leave, it really brightens my day. Morg and I hope we can continue to inject our creepiness into the doll world. -(๑☆‿ ☆#)ᕗ
They will never be able to reach you,
the words that let you go.
Because DollZone has been having issues constantly with their resin varying widely (three different tans alone this year, and now a fourth with this above example), I emailed Mint on Card a few weeks ago to ask them if they could get a current comparison for us once their latest (August) order arrived, since they were fortunate enough to have one of every kind in their batch.
This is the most recent and accurate comparison for anyone concerned. As you can see the tan is FINALLY back to a nice rich colour that they had last year that my Prince was originally in. Even more recent tan dolls have not arrived in this colour but looking more translucent or even orange. Though I’ve already decided not to pursue renewing Prince in this tan, at least now others can see that the colour there seems to be an actual ‘tan’ and not the light almost normal skin it was several months ago.
Keep in mind, please, that the Pink skin has been getting very light as of late and this is the pinkiest I’ve seen it in a while.
I hope this can help anyone considering ordering from DollZone! But please KEEP IN MIND that this is subject to change at any time because dolls received only a week or so ago did not look like these colours.
Tomorrow is another day,
I don’t know when I’ll feel anymore. 🎀
