How far is too far when collecting anime merchandise?
Yea seems to be the case. Same with games
Kill everybody but don't have sex
had to change url for spam
So is this a doll thread or what?
No such thing. And even if there was, dolls wouldn't be it. Dolls are awesome. "Too far" would probably be somewhere around kigurumi or fursuits.
Yea dolls are awesome
Sadly don't own any Dollfie though had to settle with cheaper Azone International
They do make a good judge of character, though. They helped me filter my friends down until the only ones left were the ones like me. Creepy lolicon weirdos, autismal sperglords and shy introverted cat enthusiasts. Who all either like my dolls or tolerate them for the sake of being bros. The friends I have now are worth taking a bullet for and it's my daughters I have to thank for that.
Dem little hats
Sadly dolls on /a/ usually get deleted
you got some of yours to post?
Which is strange because unless you are after limited edition DD heads, Volks and Obitsu are usually quite comparable in price. I like the Obi50 body better as it's known to have more flexible limbs, but it almost goes without saying that Volks makes better heads.
that's too far for me, the volvos are looking too oversized for them. I know it can be worse, but still
No pictures good enough to share on a public forum. I don't have a camera that isn't also my phone and I was made redundant in February when my town's only manufacturing plant shut down and haven't found stable work since.
Have a photo of my Misaki, but be advised it's a complete potato. She's quite adorable in person.
I wish I could take photos like the ones in this thread and know just how to use the camera to flatter my girls rather than embarrass both them and myself. Even if I had the camera and the posing ability, my town is an oily dirt bowl. I'd need to drive several hours out of town into buttfuck nowhere to find a good outdoors location for a photo shoot.
Also gotta fucking love the care they take when taking photos
looks cute, you don't need to look for something exquisite for backs, but lighting can be a problem in a room
You sound like you need more Kanojo in your life. Winner of the official title of "creepiest eyes ever". But she is love and I need her more than I need oxygen.
You don't like me....
I actually don't mind those to much one of the less frighting ones. They don't give that creepy 'real eye' look that most have. >>113328401
Absolutely terrifying. 10/10 would hide in closet
VOLKS International website. Standard model Aoi and Yukino are both listed at 45,000JPY for a complete doll with painted face and a night gown so they aren't naked.
Normally I wouldn't spoonfeed but for some reason this page is difficult to locate.
I wish I could easily take them outside but as I said my town is heavily industrialised and also a complete dump so unless I want a concrete bridge with graffiti, a burnt out train car, and a dark-skinned individual committing an offence for a background, I need to drive out of town. I also lack a carrier for my girls. The last time I did it I used an old baby chair.
Man, the eyes are my favourite part of a doll.
>Would you a clock doll?
And yeah, I know all about shitty lighting. She normally lives in a display cabinet in my living room due to the amount of dust that gets everywhere here, but it's also the darkest part of the house as it has a tree over the only window so photos in that room never turn out. I put her in the afternoon light thinking I'd get, at the least, a better picture, but I got this instead. My pet shitlord thought it was hilarious.
usually doll eyes creep me out, but these aren't so bad
probably because they're anime stylized
that said, the idea of owning and maintaining and taking pictures of a doll creeps me the fuck out but also sort of fascinates me.
But yea I can see why you think that
Azone International eyes are basically painted on so they don't really look like eyes. but Doffie actually have eye balls that move in sockets
Most be because humans are attitude to faces but with dolls it must throw that off
From what I hear, those things have metal wire frames that the "flesh" is moulded around, and that the wires can break if bent too often. Do you know anything about that?
>tfw actually admiring a photo of a doll dressed and posed
I'm too far gone, aren't I?
I could see myself getting something made by Azone International, seeing as they have pretty neat design choices, but oh boy eye balls that can move in the socket? I appreciate the attention to detail but damn that is scary.
Just something about care and details to lighting and positions that just fascinating to me
Yea. You will always get a that guy that says "hurr you need to get out more and socialize "
When you mean socialize you mean get drunk
Hows that bottle collection going and remembering all that socializing
Little side tracked from photos but holy crap they look good wet
Might damage them though
dolls liek water
I think the guy which did those sets knows well what he was doing
>Not wanting a Cute little Yandere doll
Just thought how much that could fuck everything
good, that means you have imagination
Just gonna see if I can find more " At night " ones
They look better imo
Melocotón has that base covered. Amazing what lighting and pose does to a normally very sweet and sugary little girl.
You wanted creepy eyes
Continuing the theme of scary yanderes.
You said you would play with me anon...
Too much sugar, by the looks of things.
I also find it amusing this doll thread is more popular than /jp/'s doll thread despite the majority of /a/ being gigantic shitposting narutards who don't into nice things.
her neck is stiff
These 1-piece torsos are the best thing ever.
What did you do to upset the imouto?
I wouldn't necessarily say it's more popular. You're just seeing the difference in traffic between the two boards. /a/ is pretty fast, especially compared to /jp/. For all it's faults /a/ really isn't that bad either compared to the other "big" boards. Shit has been going downhill fast.
Probably one of my favorite ones yet from this thread. She really needs an undershirt or something though

It's not like I like dolls or anything... baka
Oh my god I need that. The creepier the eyes the more I love them.
These seamless dolls are so damn lewd. I want one but I know it's a slope I won't be able to climb back up. I try to keep my sex drive separate from my doll hobby but it's getting more and more difficult every time I see one of these.
got any more?
I just know I'll end up like hotglue-kun if I buy one though. I know my resolve is not strong enough to resist blasting that tiny face with hot semen twice-or-thrice daily. Then after getting tired of that I'll end up buying a dollho and peach pai double XL and I will realise I have become the person I hated most.
could not find high res versions
looks like thread is about to die
just start with the second step
I see no point since my camera is so shit but I took a pic of Madokadonk and "wears-her-crushes-outfit-creepy-lesbian-stalker-mode Homuhomu just now for you. They live in this glass cabinet normally due to the amount of dust in my house. I live in the country with farms all around so there is dust literally everywhere. It also protects them from my cats. The last time I left them outside unattended, one of my cats tried to rub against her as a sign of affection and knocked her over. Not going through that trauma again.
Saw them on e2046 but decided against it
Mine I tell you
I was busy taking a photo jesus fuck.
If she doesn't start / end her sentences in "boku" i will be pissed
Something i did order is this
I think a good percentage on /a/ likes dolls but simply can't/doesn't want to buy them. They come up in buyfag threads every now and then and it's basically treated as a terminal stage of buyfagging.
I for one simply collect cute pictures and toy with the idea of eventually buying one. One day. Maybe.
should fix the white balance at least
Not hand-picked I presume. Ripping flickr accounts in bulk?
>"dress and pose"
That one is quite nice. Just another family member.
These are unbelievably cute. I usually find dolls creepy, but looking at these is quite soothing compared to when I see Western or Victorian dolls.
What is the name for these? How expensive is the hobby? Do you guys just go into "no fucks given mode" when you photograph these in public spaces? I'd go red in the face!
the /jp/ doll thread has a guide. The hobby is more expensive than figures per piece, but people tend to collect fewer dolls than figures over time, and it depends on the size and type of the doll and the accessories.
And most of those photos aren't ours.
Enough image dumping for now, don't want to anger the mods
Is anyone else fucking terrified of these? They just look so lifeless
You wouldn't just leave one doll sit in your shelf by herself all day, all alone, would you?
First they're somewhat unsettling. Then you get used to it. Then you start seeing cute aspects.
Although i'm a robo-fetishist, so the uncanny valley has always been quite shallow to me.
