Villitunes -- Mizuki Cyclops, Mimi-chu, Bunnycorn, Etc.

Nov 3, 2016

    1. That's great you had a try-on party!

      I suspected that clothes would be difficult to find. Tinies tend to be hard to fit because they are so small and differences can really be a big deal... I mean--that can happen with larger dolls, too, but the shapes of tinies also tend to vary a lot... so they are hard to fit over-all.

    2. It's so true! She doesn't FEEL as small as she is, but trying on all those clothes really put into perspective how short her little legs are. At least Villitunes sells clothes for them! Maybe now that they're getting more popular other sewists will start too.

      Just for fun, here's a pic of her in the new headband I picked up for her at Sakura-Con :D

    4. Yeah, that's what I was guessing, too. Was just hoping someone may have known a definite wig size :) Thank you, though! I ended up buying a 7-8 wig, so hopefully it fits well!!:love

      PS--Your Mizuki is too adorable!!! I love the yellow resin!
       
    5. Thank you so much! She cheers me up whenever I look at her :aheartbea

      I saw someone posting their Lamoon on FB and asked what size wig she takes. They confirmed it's a 7-8 wig but said they use a silicone cap to help keep it on. So that's really good to know!

    6. Mizuki is precious! I want her but then I feel she would need a matching Odysseus, which I don't think I'll be able to find a kawaii, pastel colored version of. Maybe if Villi re releases Gloriana that would work - "Ody and the Baby Cyclops" part 4 of the epic cycle.

      Mimichu has such chubby cheeks. Too bad they're bad of resin.

      Sorry for the double post!
      Villitunes uploaded a photo on their IG with Lamoon's and Mimichu's body measurements. Villi only showed Lamoon's head though.

    8. I bought a grey Mizuki second-hand a while ago, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made! :lol: Here they are with their original owner's faceup (they're now waiting for a new faceup!) and hair helping me knit a blanket:

      Now that the preorders for Mizuki and Loppi-Moon are coming up next week, I'm really, really torn...my Mizuki needs some friends, but I'm not sure who! I loooove the new green tea color on Villitune's site, but was originally thinking of getting a yellow or pink color. :doh

    9. Ooooh! Is that grey? Looks amazing!

      Agh--I'm trying not to get my Mizuki any friends--but it's SO tempting. I love all the colors!!! :sweat

    10. up, my Mizuki is grey! Villitunes' grey is rather cool toned, so it can easily look more blue or green.

      Loppi-Moon is coming out this time, too - that would be the perfect friend for any cyclops. :love

    11. Anyone else get in on the new pre-order? I admit I caved and got a blumt Loppi-Moon... Sunny Beeps needs a friend after all :lol:

      I just can't resist her dolls! I love them all so much! :aheartbea

    12. Created the VilliTunes wiki page. Please review to see if I made a mistake <3

    13. Aw...Cyclops Loppi-Moon are so adorable. I'm a little sad about missing the preorders but atleast it'll give me a chance to save up and see owner pictures before commiting to my own someday.

    14. Thank you for making a wiki page! I just love when people add info to the wiki, since it's so important, but often ignored...
       
    15. Thank you :) It makes me sad the Wikia isn't updated more often. It does have a bit of a learning curve.... Have you Mods thought having some sort of "reward" to get people to edit it? Maybe something like an "Editor Rank" displayed on Users' profiles or under their tags?
       
    16. Hey i'm jumping back in on this thread after a while, sorry :sweat
      I'm really happy to see so mani Mizuki owners though *°*
      I was actually curious if anyone had tried specifically some Pukifee or maybe middie Blythe clothes on their Mizuki maybe? And the other one about how to pose her cause i've been struggling with it so bad to the point she can't even sit without falling on her face and i almost gave up on her standing, so I was curious if anyone had similar issues?
       
    17. I haven't tried any other clothes on my Mizuki.

      Yeah... with that big head, she's not going to be easy to pose standing up!

      I was able to stand mine up right out of the box (here's box opening photo), BUT I will usually just prop her up against something because I'm lazy about trying to pose dolls!

    18. @BubbleDae she is very top heavy so I usually let her lean on stuff. But other than that I find her to be a really good poser, especially considering she's single jointed. As far as standing goes, make sure the ball joints in her thighs are aligned right, I find that makes a huge difference. Even so - she's got that big head so I don't expect her to stand unaided for long periods of time :lol:

      As far as clothes go I can confirm that regular blythe clothes are too small so I would imagine middie blythe would be even less workable? I haven't tried Pukifee though. Maybe very stretchy tops?

    19. I'm planning on pre-ordering a Mizuki tomorrow, but I'm so torn about the faceup! Villi's are so cute, but I also like the idea of a shimmery custom faceup. I know so much is down to personal preference, but I'm brand new to the hobby and having trouble making a decision! D:
       
    20. If it helps, the faceup you get will look just like the ones in Villi's pics (aside from the normal minor variations you'd expect). Possibly you could ask her to just add some extra sparkle to it? If you aren't too picky she might not mind.
