|Faux-moko, my Hikari-chan|
|Real Momoko: Beach Angel edition|
|Obitsu W-02 has a very nice profile.|
I also prefer the more normal (well, to a bjd person) ankles of a Volks doll to the Momoko's oddly fetlock-like-in-high-heels ankles. While I would still consider buying the Momoko heads (you know, after I win a million in the lottery) I'd probably put them on Volks bodies. For now, I seriously like the Obitsu head. It's got a natural looking bone structure for one thing. Momoko is killer-kawaii, but I have a feeling she's also like potato chips, or worse kittens! If I fall and buy just one, I'll turn into a crazy collector with every edition or something. She has so many variations in face, age from new teen to mature teen and OMG the clothing, so yeah. Hence: Faux-moko.
Her t-shirt is the first one I made ages ago. I believe I got her tights from Junkyspot and they are like spun steel. Years and still not a run. I wish they made them in my size. It's the same fabric we used in theater for 'nude' sections in costumes and cost something like 20-30 plus a yard ten years ago.
She stands quite well without a stand, but I'm awfully shaky lately for some reason. Hypothyroid, gotta love it, and can't pose any of my dolls. Even Jiji was falling over and she has the balance of the gods normally. Hikari's high heels are from Obitsu and fit nicely compared to the lack of fit from Volks shoes. Every time I ordered shoes from them, I got ones that were WAY too small, and at the time I was ordering from Volks Japan, not USA. The boy's shoes on the other hand run WAY tooo big! I have a pair of lovely boots that ended up on my YoSD kiddo that were supposed to be for the 1/6 'boyfriend' doll'.
I'm still working on the hair do on the guy doll. He'll be up soon, though. ^_^
