MYou tinies discussion

Sep 21, 2016

    1. yay - Just got shipment notification for my Myou tinies - Feng Linger and Dudu. Can't wait for these little ones to join my group. They're already named Fern and Quill and I have plans for them to be little elf like gardener and writer. :love

    2. Oooooooooh I can't wait to see more pictures of him :) This sculpt really suprised me. :)
       
    3. Are the myou 1/8 and 1/6 bodies double jointed or no? I really like my peanut joints, but the sculpting is so pretty on these dolls... Every time I see owner pics I fall in love again! :D

    4. @Beedalee I believe all MYou bodies are double jointed!

      In other news...I recently ordered a brand new Lorina to reshell Gemini into. The 'Normal Skin' has yellowed so much over the years and her poor body has endured quite a few scratches. I'm really excited to reshell her into a 'Normal Pink' body, just hoping her original faceup artist will still be around to work on Gemini v2.0.

      Here's a quick photo that I snapped today!

    5. @NekoNyanMew Really? Even their knees? I know the 1/4 bodies are DJ (also love!!) but I feel like I don't see anyone pose the 1/6 or 1/8 myous in the kneeling position or touching their faces, so I wasn't sure if those round ball joints allowed for it at the smaller size..

      Your Gemini is an absolute darling, btw!! I love the little longer tufts of hair framing her sweet face :aheartbea

    6. Upon further inspection...you might be right. The round ball joints seem to have the mechanism for double-jointedness, which is probably why I got confused. But as I try to pose the doll in more double jointed positions, there's not much there to actually hold it in place.

      I feel like it's pseudo double-jointed. :XD:
       
    7. Ahhh, so it's like that! I knew it! I suspect that if they were wired they'd totally hold 'double-jointed-esque' poses fine (at least in the arms) since the balljoint doesn't really stop you from moving them that far, right? It just doesn't like... hold the arm/leg in place by itself, either? Too round, not enough peanut shape. As you said... "pseudo-double-jointed!" :XD: It could still tempt me, maybe... The bodies are sooo gosh darn cute.

      Thank you for checking for me!! :aheartbea

    8. The 27cm body is double jointed. The peanuts fit tightly in the lower limbs so you need to very purposely pull them out. There are pictures on the body page on Alice's Collections here: Doll Parts, MYOU Doll - BJD Dolls, Accessories - Alice's Collections
       
    9. My Pink skin 30cm. Myou Nina arrived today! She is wearing 15mm Eyeco soft glass (silicone) Louisiana Iris eyes.

    10. @nancy_schroeder_ca Ah, yes!! I knew the 27cm bodies were DJ, thank you though! I was wondering about the (newer?) 30cm bodies (and the 17cm bodies) which seemed to have more rounded looking ball joints than the 27cm body so I thought they may have lost some mobility in place of aesthetics. I'm sorry for not being clearer before! :sweat

      @Therese52 She is absolutely darling!! Wow! Those eyes are so beautiful.
       
    11. @Beedalee, You are correct. The balls give less range of motion but the aesthetics are great.

    12. I just could not adjust to Nina's black mouth coloring, so I softened the line myself. I think that she looks much better now with her modified mouth and a new wig color. Today she starts her modeling duties and it looks like she is a natural.

    13. @maboroshi, your Xiaobuding is so adorable! May I ask, is he on the 27 or 30 cm body?
      I love him as a girl!

    15. Hello! I did a bad thing and ordered an insta doll from JunkySpot! She's on her way to me and will be arriving soon. I ordered a Delia on the 30cm body. I adore the pear body and can't wait to start sewing pretty little outfits for her. Her name is Ingrid and she's a little witch. I have so many plans for her. She's coming with a faceup and I might wipe it. I'm not sure yet. It depends on how I feel about her default. Myou does beautiful faceups, but I feel they can be hit or miss. My Matcha's faceup was a hit for her character but I'll have to wait and see. Does anyone have a Delia to share? Most of what I've been able to find is the 1/4 version.
       
    16. Myou 30cm. Doudou #2 just arrived with her wonderful new Faceup and body blushing by AngelToast. She is wearing 15mm Masterpiece Rhineland Soft Glass eyes and a Carrot Red wig. I think she is a Ginger cutie!

    18. Oh! Has anyone decided to get the mature tiny dolls? (27.8cm right? And 28.8cm boy)

      I love the look of them, but am trying to enjoy the dolls I have currently, but am sooooo tempted by the tiny ones.
