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.

What do you do when your grail doll is a One-off?

May 19, 2016

    1. A year or so back, Volks started doing one-offs in the USA via the web. I fell in love with a pale Kohya girl. I could try to re-create her via FCS or kit bashing some dolls together, but would it be the same?

      What have you done when your grail doll is physically unobtainable, no matter how much money you throw at it?
    2. A friend of mine could get her hands on the tiny version of her grail doll. No, it's not the same as the 1/3 faun in all its glory, but it's the next best thing.

      Me, I have an elf as an unobtainable grail doll. That's why I found a head and body (no hybrid) which are similar enough. I don't think I will be doing any modding to the sculpt -- a good face-up will make me love her just as much -- but I will sew her some clothes heavily inspired by those worn by my grail doll. For me, this is the next best thing. Or maybe an even better thing, because it's something I found and made myself AND it didn't cost me a fortune. :thumbup
