choosing a body for Kai
I’m a bit picky about doll bodies and I have a hard time trying to find the perfect bodies for my dolls/characters. I really don’t mind that the color match is not perfect but there are some things that are necessary for me on a doll body:
- the sculpture has to be beautiful and looks natural… (most dolls have too much weird muscles T_T)
- It has to stand up and sits well, that is basic.
- The torso has to bend naturally.
- Double jointed elbows and the doll has to be able to touch his face.
Said that, I almost never find a body that has all the 4 things together…
These four bodies for example:
- Luts Senior-4: the best pose-ability, but too much muscle (although the sculpture is beautiful).
- Volks grafitti: the most beautiful and natural looking body but the torso doesn’t bend too much and the elbows are hard to pose.
- Custom House: pose-abily is quite decent (this is the oldest body I have). The muscles are a too defined.
- Myoudoll 62: (I sanded off most of the muscles because they were too weird). The torso pose-abilty is also very weird, he can move a lot but it looks ugly without clothes.
pd: I don’t know why in the picture the CustomHouse body looks so pink, because it is probably the most yellowed of all of them ._.
