I was wondering what are the deciding factors people use to choose sculpts for their cosplay/character dolls. Do you prefer a more realistic sculpt or one of the anime faces? Do you play off head canon or try to stick to the original? And do your cosplay dolls have casual styles that aren't canon but still fit the character? How long does it take you to choose a sculpt for a character? I'm planning on hashing Bortz from Houseki no Kuni and I am pretty set on using an iplehouse Asa. I usually draw Bortz with more realistic asian features and Asa is just the perfect sculpt for that. I've seen a few male versions og the sculpt as well so I'll be able to maintain an androgynous look. There are definitely going to be casual styles for more variety. One issue I'm having is deciding on a body type, a female body is more accurate to the character but a male body fits my head canon more. That's pretty much it. I'm really just curious about how the process is for everyone.
