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.

Parabox/Iplehouse hybrid?

Jan 24, 2018

    1. Hello! I currently have a FID Bianca, which has a very realistic look, and I want to achieve a more anime look without having to buy another complete doll. I have browsed around on DoA and I hadn't seen any other thread or forum related to this topic, so I decided to ask myself. I have been looking at a Parabox Ai-chan or Luna head and I was wondering if it would look okay on the FID body (or if it would even work). I am looking for any head that would help achieve this look on the FID body overall. Thanks a lot everyone.
    2. I tend to check shoulder width (and neck circumference) for vinyl/resin compatibility. It's not fool proof of course, since heads vary in size and shape - but it certainly gives you a decent idea.

      According to the Iplehouse website, the FID body has a 9.5cm shoulder width. Whereas, the Obitsu/Parabox bodies are 45cm (8.5 width), 47/48/50cm (10 width). So it certainly seems plausible to be proportionate.

      Oh, also I recommend getting a head in the size range of the body or it may look a bit bobble-headed. Before I traded away a 1/4 sized resin body I placed the default 50cm head on it just to compare...and it ended up looking a bit too big for my tastes. I wish I could find the photo now. :/
    3. @Azael Thank you, I never thought to compare the shoulder widths. I had been looking at neck circumference, and the heads definitely seems like they would fit the neck, but I was just nervous about it looking like a bobble-head. I really want to try to make it work, especially because Parabox heads are cheaper (which means I can save more for my next full doll purchase).
    4. *nods* That's another good thing, if it doesn't quite fit as you would've liked then you won't be out so much. :3
