Dollfie Dream

From Den of Angels BJD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Dollfie Dream is a line of 1/3 vinyl dolls made by Volks, with heights ranging between 50-58 cm.

Although they are made of vinyl, the Dollfie Dream (DD) line is considered on-topic for Den of Angels, as it was grandfathered in when the 'made of resin' rule went into effect.

Dollfie Dream dolls come in three skin colors, "normal", "semi-white" and "white". (A single tan Dollfie Dream Dynamite body was released on a limited doll in 2008.) Most parts can be purchased in all three colors, but at present, base bodies are only available in normal or semi-white skin.

Bodies

DD Basic Body

The first Dollfie Dreams used the DD Basic body, which was strung with elastic. The body pieces were 'hard soft vinyl' with the hands and bust being 'flexible soft vinyl'. The original Basic Body was sold with a blank featureless head and optional hands with slender fingers, meant for gloves. The original price was ¥18,900. Optional heads were available separately and were attached with elastic, similar to resin BJD heads. The DD Basic Body is no longer available from Volks.

DD Basic Body II

The DD Basic Body II was first introduced at Hometown Dolpa Kyoto 3. It has a jointed inner armature, called a 'Dollfie Dream Inner Frame' (DDIF). Like the DD Basic Body, it has 14 points of articulation. However, it has a special neck peg for head attachment. It was available from Volks for ¥22,680, in white and normal skin. It does not come with a head or any extra parts.

DD Basic Body III

The third basic DD body was released in 2011, used by Touhou doll Sakuya Izayoi at Dolpa Kobe and Akihabara Afterschool Girl Moe at the Akihabara Event. It was initially reserved for limited Dollfie Dreams until it replaced the II body as the standard base body. Current price is ¥30,240 at the Volks International webstore, available in normal and semi-white skin.

DD Dynamite Body

A more curvaceous figure with larger bust, waist, rear and thighs than DD II. The torso joint has been moved higher, just underneath the bust. The leg movement is somewhat restricted compared to DD II due to the increased curves. The head and hands can be exchanged with DD II and MDD, but torso/bust/thigh parts are not compatible.

DD Sister Body

The 50cm 'sister' to Dollfie Dream. This body features improved articulation similar to the Obitsu 50cm doll. The head and hands can be exchanged with other DD bodies.

Hybrid compatibility

The original DD Basic Body was sometimes used for hybrids because the elastic method of head attachment was similar to that of resin BJDs. However, the newer DD basic bodies (II-onward) have a peg attachment for the head.

It's possible to use resin SQ Lab heads with newer DD bodies, or DD heads with resin SQ Lab bodies. Both SQ Lab's normal and white resins are a fair match for Dollfie Dream vinyl.
