Opinions on Fairyland Minifee Bodies.

Apr 22, 2010

    1. Hey guys!! I'm just curious of what you guys think of the Fairyland Minifees! I adore them, and I think they are gorgeously sculpted and wonderfully posable! But I do see one tiny inconvenience in the Minifee, and that is it's leg/hip joint. Those extra cups under the hip is the only thing that bothers me. It makes me wonder if Fairyland will eventually alter the Minifee body to look like the Littlefee body. The Littlefee bodies are PERFECT! I LOVEE THEMM!! They have the most natural bodies of all the BJD's I've searched. I may be overreacting, and acting a bit picky lol, but I think the Minifees would look PERFECT with the Littlefee hip/leg joint system. What do you guys think?
       
    2. There's the Minifee Discussion thread over Here where you can find lots of minifee owners and their dolls, myself included. ^^

      Those cups actually keep my girl standing really well, and they don't bother me too much.
       
    3. I just ordered a Minifee because I love the body! I haven't gotten a chance to play with one yet though. What is that little extra hip part even for? Does it help with posing, or is it just to give the hips a smoother silhouette..?
       
    4. Crap, I'm so bad at this. I'm sorry I keep posting in the wrong spot. Anyway, I agree that they help the Minifees pose awesomely, but the Littlefees pose just as well without the cups. Maybe it's the size that allows them to disregard the cups? Still, I do love the Minifees, I LOVE THEM, I just have stupid pet peeves that cause me to be anal about the cups. lol
       
    5. I'm sure it's for the posing. lol But, I do feel like it makes the legs look less natural then the Littlefees (but the Minifee is still gorgeous) Here, look at the Minifee--->http://dollfairyland.com/board/view.php?board_name=DREAMBOARD10&choose2=&choose1=&ID=2 Do you see the cups? Now look at the Littlefee---> http://dollfairyland.com/board/view.php?board_name=DREAMBOARD11&choose2=&choose1=&ID=2 See what I mean?
       

    6. No worries, the forum takes a bit of getting used to, but it's possible your thread will get moved by the mods.

      It's kinda hard to see on those pics some of the details of the cups, so hopefully someone can get you a picture, but there's sort of an outward sideways "D" shape that fits into that part of the cup you can barely see curved inward. That's what tends to hold it in place. That slides around so your doll can rotate their legs and provides some extra friction to help hold it. The LittleFees have a joint a bit lower that the Minifees have. I'm not sure why it's two different styles, perhaps they work better for the different leg structures, but I believe that part does something very similar.
       
    7. One of my friends had told me that the cup is on the inside for the Littlefees, or at least something like it, and that it works the same way as the Minifees. Making the only difference it's visibility. I actually think that eventually the Minifee will be altered so that it looks like the Littlefee. Like an update or something. But it will probably be more expensive and, if it ever does happen, cause everyone to buy the new body resulting in more money for them. lol Oh well, I would totally waste my money on it. lol
