Maskcat 21cm Tiny Discussion part 1

Jan 6, 2014

    1. So is anyone planning on buying one of these little cuties?
    2. I so love little Aruna, I've placed the little girl on my wishlist.
    3. They have free shipping for everyone now, until February 25th :) And then the free shipping will be extended for every country someone has ordered from during that time.

      I fell in love with little Belina! She definitely is the perfect size to be a doll for a doll. And this size is so much fun to dress too! I made a few video's for those of you who are interested to find out more.

      I'll post some pictures soon too.
    4. She's very pretty, and I'm tempted...do you know if they're considering making her with a jointed body? That's the one thing that holds me back from ordering.
    5. I don't know, but I'll ask them and report back :)
    6. @clochette:
      I'm the official representative of Maskcat and we are sorry, but a jointed torso in this size would be a bit useless and not so important for the mobility! so the tiny body will be a one-part torso only! ^^ I have both tiny Maskcat dolls (Aruna and Belina) and I like their mobility! I don't think that a two-part torso is needed and I don't miss it! ^^

      here a little pic of my Aruna in a dress I have handsewn for her:

    7. Thanks for your quick reply. Not sure I understand the "useless" comment, but I'm glad you enjoy your dolls. I have dolls of both type, and unfortunately, prefer the jointed bodies even in smaller dolls. I wish you luck with your creations. :D
    8. Well, here's what I gather after talking to Maskcat about it. They like the aesthetic of the older bodies, like the Volks SD10. That's why she's single jointed and has no torso joint, which they think she poses absolutely fine without. It's a matter of taste, I guess. I like jointed torsos, but my lati doesn't have it and I never really notice. The SD girl Maskcat is working on will be double jointed though, because of popular demand :) In general, they listen very well to their customers. This is why they changed the shipping event and also why they'll start inserting kips in the necks of the 21cm girls for better head posing :D
    9. yes, I think that the posing without the jointed torso is very well and that's why I said it is "useless" ^^ (and because her sculptor used this word too! ^^ ) she said that her posing wouldn't be so much better with a torso joint!
      I like dolls with torso joints too, but in that case it really isn't bad that there is no joint ^^

      by the way, today I will take some photos of Belina! I finished her face-up yesterday~ :)
      and if somebody wants to see, here I posted some photos of Aruna (the first tiny girl of Maskcat) on Doa some time ago: http://www.denofangels.com/forums/s...tiny-lolita-(Maskcat-Aruna)-*&highlight=aruna

    10. by the way, if someone is interested in the blog of the sculptor (only in chinese language) here is the link: http://maskcat.blogbus.com/ :)

    11. If shipping is free how do I get it removed from the etsy cart when I go to pay? Is there a code I missed somewhere?

      What is the wait time after ordering?
    12. @kadepie:

      Maskcat already removed the shipping costs on Etsy, so you only need to pay for the doll during the event time! ^_^

      And it takes about 2-3 weeks for make the doll, but because of the chinese new year it will take about 4-6 weeks at the moment! But Maskcat has 2 Arunas and 2 Belinas in normal skin in stock!^^
    13. The shipping costs are showing up in my etsy cart and don't disappear before I pay for them.
    14. @kadepie:

      I've tried a couple of times - when I add a doll into my cart, there are no shipping costs! Please try to delete the item and add again! Or do you have added an other item as well? Because the free shipping event is for dolls only! I've asked Mascat and she want to change the shipping options for other items! Please try again later! And sorry for the trouble~ >///<
    15. Thank you! I will try to delete and re add. I am torn anyway. Can't decide between Aruna and Belina.
    16. @kadepie:

      Maskcat changed the shipping settings, everything should work now!^^ Please let me know if something still don't work~

      By the way, I'm editing photos of Belina with Face-up right now (some of them with Aruna together) and want to show them in the gallery today too! Maybe it will help to decide?^^
    17. Yes that would be awesome to see pics of your Belina!
