1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

New Dust of Dolls on new appi body Cota and Coti

Oct 11, 2017

    1. Already one month has passed since the end date of the preorder at Dust of Dolls on new appi body Cota and Coti. :sumomo:
      Which one did you choose?
      How does the new body function?
      Has mobility improved?
      Can the dolls stand without a stand?
      And how do you prepare for the arrival of long-awaited girls?

      I could not choose any one. :pout: I bought both a deer and a fox. :kitty2 I really want to make a make-up. Of course the make up of the company is very good. But I did not want to wait another 2 months. Please tell me your feelings of expectation. I want to know that I'm not the only one experiencing these moments. Thank you
    2. @Roxsaalina I got Cöti ^_^ Couldn't resist the ears, the lips and chubby cheeks!

      I think the new body works quite fine, based on the pics Dust of dolls & Quartz_qin has shared. They have new joints on the torso and on the upper thighs.
      Dust of dolls has 3 pics on Instagram showing the new body while sitting. I prefer it better since it looks more natural and the body can slouch a little bit. And based on the pics, they can stand quite sturdy without help too :D So in general it looks like the mobility has changed a bit and improved. Need to check Neze & Jäma owner pics as well, since they have the new body also!

      I'm not prepared at all yet:lol: My friend does my Cötis faceup and other friend makes her a wig at the same time, so I don't have to worry about those. My friend also promised to make her a set of clothes as well. I just give them the instructions when needed! 6 months is a long time. I'm just so excited about the whole thing but also anxious since I know that I don't get to see her in person before my friends do their magic :lol: I think that adds up +1-2 months waiting time for me I ques. But it's worth it! Tailored clothing, faceup and custom alpaca - with the help of my friends I'm able to bring my ideas alive :D

    4. I already get a handmade Cöti.
      The new body is really cool and stand really better than the previous one (My friend takes many pictures of Appi V2 body, you can see them here => Yume
      Yes, the mobility is good !
      And she stand really easily.

      If you have any question about the body, I can try to answer ^^
