Photo review: clone disney fairies articulated body

Unknown torso made of solid plastic, vinyl limbs cast from disney fairies made from leftover pellets which means swirling and colours within the plastic, white hard plastic joints.

Some flash to slice out at the joints and leftover spruce nubs on the top side of the limbs, occasional line to sand or back-knife off.

Fantastic articulation which can easily be added to, with some slices to the upper arm joint at the elbow and to the back of the thigh at the knee.     26cm pale skin ideal for EAH, pale skipper sized dolls, generic asian dollar store dolls, anthro or Licca body replacement providing that you’re OK with discolourations.

Fit MH/EAH/Bratz clothes and barbie sized shoes.

Review: 14 joint 25cm body

Review: $2 14 joint 25cm body.

It’s an odd one with some really good features (very poseable) but also very noodly aesthetic and unusual “inbetween” size for fashion dolls.

 

Size comparison:

Fits classic Barbie shoes

 

The neck needs modding so that most fashion doll heads aren’t angled upwards:

Skin tone comparison:

barbie ultra pale, fakies 12 joint and 11 joint, 25cm pale body and obitsu white skin

How to make a pastel rainbow Licca!

   

Here are the measurements if you’d like to make your own.

(This will work with castle/new gen Licca heads with a slight redraw of the front line of hair for a more modern hairline. See side picture of the bald head.)

  • 10 bands at the front: 6mm each
  • 10 bands at the back: 5mm each
  • 5 bands across the 3cm parting: 6mm each

So far each colour band (front + back) has taken me 1h30 with the tool method.

The pencil rubs off during the reroot so I recommend doing alternate bands of colour.
The fuzzy no-flash collage is the closest colour match to the real thing: pastel yellow, lavender, a peachy pink and minty/seafoam green.

She’s not as pastel as I’d hoped to make her (the client wanted true pastels but that would mean purchasing 5 different nylon packs including some from the USA) because saran doesn’t have a pale blue that isn’t very green. I tried to dilute the “teal” blue but the blends looked very grey against all these full colours. So instead I darkened the mint with some seafoam so it was approximately the same darkness as the rest.

I’m torn between loving it and hating that it’s not right.
The stripe design worked out great with triple rainbows at the pigtails and options for lots of different hairstyles that show the single or double rainbow. Very very pleased with that! I can see it working with a gradient reroot such as red, celtic red (tomato soup), orange, yellow, golden blonde…

From Ebay China. A few years back a chinese seller had these black glasses at $1 per pair and I bought several for my Barbies. I hadn’t seen them at less then $4 since… until last month – twenty at once with free shipping!

They were bought on the 28th of november and arrived the 4th of january.

Here’s the link to get your own:

They all have a teeny bit of flash on the upper bridge, I removed it with a knife for all the doll photos here. The glasses fit Barbie + Integrity sizes best and can be bent to fit Myscene and Licca but they look rather unfortunate on Myscene who’s eyes are painted off center for a cute cartoony effect. They don’t fit Monster High.
