Lolified Xera and Dollpa Goodies

As much as I appreciate Volks for releasing their doll related products, one thing that I’ve always  found irritating is the fact that it takes them forever to release spare parts like the DD inner-frames should a girl with one break, or a MDD white bodies in case somebody with a limited/custom white DD starts needing them. Sora has broken both her arm and back in the past but because of the scarcity of inner frames in the market, I had to buy a whole new body from Volks to replace them. Xera additionally will have to wait until somebody puts their MDD white bodies on sale at YJA since her face-up was designed to fit a MDD. While we can still keep hopes up for the DD inner-frames due to increasing demand, the chance of MDD white bodies coming out is pretty slim given Volk’s poor reputation for after sales service and the fact that the there were only 2 limited MDDs with white bodies (Al Azif and Etheldreda).

Wish I’d known this ahead of time but thanks to my followers on twitter, I’ve found an alternate solution for a MDD white bodies. The process is quite simple too :3 All you need is a 40 cm body from a manufacturer called Parabox (related to Obitsu?) and a DD Head/Obitsu (40cm) neck joint converter which looks something like this. Although it’s from a different company, Parabox 40cm bodies are about the same height as an MDD and the skin tone is lighter than a MDD normal skin bodies (See comparison here). The body structure is also slightly different but fits MSD and MDD sized clothing (Was warned by an owner of a DD head/Parabox40 body doll that MDD sized ones might be tight around the legs).

Fortunately enough they had one stock left in their store in Yokohama and even discounted it by 15% rounding the price to around 17000 yen. Added with a MSD dress I found at Tokyo Dolk Akihabara, Xera here is finally completed…(*´ω`)

Me : Err…so how do you like your new body Xera?

Xera : …

Xera : …

Xera : …

Xera : ….it’s okay

Me : Thank god, she speaks ;3

Xera : I can even bend my arms like this and do this pose you wanted me to do.

Xera : What does this pose mean?

Me : It’s umm…a way of saying good morning or good night when dolls like yourself greet their masters.

Xera : Really?

Me: Yes really. And when you talk, you’re supposed to add a “~nyan” in the end ;3

Xera : Anyways, Master why did you make me shorter?

Me : Well, since you’re the youngest of the sisters I thought it’d be more fitting if you were like that.

Xera : Sisters?

Me : Oh, right I didn’t introduce you the other girls yet. They’re out in the yard fighting so they should be back soon I think.

Xera: …

Me : Honestly, I don’t know what they’ll do to you when they see you so here’s a halberd to protect yourself.

Xera : i..is this really necessary?

Me : Well, one of them is reasonable but the other one is a complete menace. She began fighting the nice one the minute she laid eyes her so it’s best to be safe^^;

Xera: hmm….

Xera : (…sisters huh…)

Xera : (…I wonder what they look like…)

*Sudden loudness*

Me : Oh hey, Sora, Aura you’re back.

Xera : !!!???

Me : …and from the looks of it I’m guessing that Sora won this time?

Sora : ♪

Aura : Shut up worm. How am I supposed to win when she can stop time and summon machine guns?

Me : You do have a point^^; Anyways , I wanted to introduce you to a new gir…..

Me : Huh? Where’d she go?

Sora & Aura : Where’s who?

Xera : …

Me : um…kay, maybe next time when she’s ready.

Now that you’re here, why don’t you girls show us the new weapons I got for you at Dollpa?

Aura : Don’t you mean “please”?

Me : Y-yes PLEASE (´ω`;)

(Memory is getting fuzzy so can’t remember the name of the dealer^^; The price was around 5000 yen which is quite reasonable for a weapon this size with this much details. Probably around 80 cm? Shame tho that the rod doesn’t separate like Baradanji-san’s Kyoko’s spear.)

Me : May I?

Sora : Sure.

(This Homura bow is also made by the same dealer whose name I forgot ;3 The price for this one was about 4000 yen and is also a fine replication. One thing that’s bothered me about this was that the paint still hasn’t dried in some areas and leaves marks on Sora’s hand. Easily washable but must be handled with care^^; )

And this pretty much concludes the goodies I’ve bought in Dollpa 26. Not as plenty as it used to be but well enough to last until the next doll event which is in January. Let’s hope Xera will be ready to go to the Doll Show with Sora and Aura by then^^;

This is probably the last post I’ll make for this year so have a happy new year everyone~

皆さん良いお年を~

    Cute! Personally I’ve never been a big fan of the Volks MDD body as it often looks poorly conceived/finished on its arms and legs especially, this Parabox body looks a lot better and more pose-able. Shame that it’s not a lighter shade into white like Xera’s head, but it nonetheless works really well.

    Those weapons look really nifty, superbly detailed too.

    Shy Xera is ♥
    Can’t wait to see what photo shenanigans you’ll be up to with all 3 girls together.

    • December 31, 2011 at 9:26 pm

      Thanks smithy^^
      Not a huge fan of the MDD volk’s posing ability myself but believe me, it’s shape is much better than Parabox’s^^;
      The body’s skin tone comes out different in different lighting so may have to test and see which one will work best for Xera.

      Sora and Aura’s weapons are now so much better than the cheap spear and bows they originally^^;
      Feel motivated to come up with more poses X3

      Do stay tuned~
      Seeing Xera’s reaction to Sora and Aura tho, yuri actions may have to wait until further date^^;

    Happy New Year! Xera so cute XD and your other 2 girls are lovely as well (don’t hurt me!)

  3. December 31, 2011 at 4:39 am

    Wah, I haven’t commented for a while. Sorry ^^; So nice to get a new girl :D And yes, Parabox uses Obitsu body! Parabox tend to customize the head, but I believe they use Obitsu as the base. Xera’s very cute, nyan~! Maybe she can use that cute factor to give her an upper hand XD

    • December 31, 2011 at 9:27 pm

      I’ve also been behind catching up wit other people’s blog so fair square? XD
      Ah…so they do use the same body. Was a bit confused when I went up to the Parabox store to find bunch of obittsu bodies lying around ;3

      Thanks! Actually, that’s part of the plan to get Xera to blend in with the others XD
      Aura, despite her destructive nature has a weakness for cute things so just maybe….

    Xera looks mighty cute XD but by the time i scrolled done to Sora’s picture… i was reminded.. she’s still my favorite (^_^). Back to Xera, i think you really pulled a great one for the third time of creating a DD star ^^ can’t wait to see how all the girls will get along.

    • December 31, 2011 at 9:27 pm

      Phew, that’s good to hear^^;
      Won’t be needing another rivalry in the house.
      Xera won’t stand a chance against both Sora and Aura XD

      Thanks! Will make sure she grows up to be one unlike the poor Saber Alter^^;

    Hmm I am still not that fond of the joints, but still it’s for the good of Xera! Cute girl she is indeed

  6. December 31, 2011 at 7:11 am

    Knowing you, I think I know another reason you gave Xera that body. Can’t say that I blame you though. And it fits her well. Looks like a great addition to the family.

    I love Xera-chan! <3 Hope she meets her sisters soon and won't hide o.o! She looks so adorable! :D Definitely can't wait to see more of her. Love the weapons btw! Amazing as always Haku-kun! :D

    • December 31, 2011 at 9:29 pm

      Thanks Mitsuki!
      Xera is shy and all but I’m pretty confident that she’ll blend in with the family in time ;3
      Glad you liked the weapons too~. They were definitely worth lining up for^^;

  8. December 31, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    Xera is super kawaii !!! But it does looks a bit short in a 40cm bodies, may be when she meet her sisters we will have a better comparison.

    The close up shoot she sitting on your screen feels like she been waiting for a long time for her sisters…but Xera ran and hide when she saw them…lol

    Happy new year 2012 to you and your all your daughters =)

    • December 31, 2011 at 9:29 pm

      Thanks man!!
      Was also a bit surprised by how short Xera was in the 40cm body compared to the other girls^^;
      Maybe I’ll change her into 50cm body in the course of time^^;
      Hopefully by then, she’ll have developed a better relationship with her elder sisters XD

      I wish you and your beautiful daughter a Happy New Year too~ :3

  9. January 1, 2012 at 12:43 am

    :3 Daaaww~ She such a cutie! Aura looking delicious as ever as well ;3

    Just wishing you a Happy New years (as of 2 hours ago and i just got home from fireworks) and all the best for 2012, it’s looking to be a positive year this year, so good health to you and the girls!

    • January 2, 2012 at 3:58 am

      Thanks! Forgot to mention in the post but Aura here has a new wig on her :3
      Her old one wasn’t high quality so it got all tangled and messed up^^;

      Hope you had a good time in the fireworks! New Years in Japan isn’t all that exciting and we just go to the shrine and throw coins XD

      Wish you and your girls good luck for this year~(‘ω`)

      • January 2, 2012 at 9:42 pm

        Ah I see that is why her hair is looking very straight cut and sort of “fluffy?”

        Yep my friends threw some coins in at one of the shrines in Asakusa on my behalf

        Yes I hope this year will give me lots of empowerment to really make progress with everything as it is my year, that of the 竜 (v^ー°)

        Plus I’m really wanting to take at least more than one shoot this year ._.;

      • January 5, 2012 at 8:10 pm

        Yeah, the new wig has more volume to it and is finer too :3
        Stuff from a maker called “ヤネチカ” is always nice like that so I tend to use theeir wig often.
        Hoping this year will bring me better fortune since I was born in the year of the dragon^^;

        If you don’t have time for outdoor photoshoots you can always take photos on your desk like I always do lol
        All you need to do is get the settings right and you can keep on going ;3

    あけましておめでとうございます。
    そう言えば以前ヤフオクでキャストのMDDサイズ素体が出ていて、白ボディがありましたよね。
    今思えばあれはあれでサードパーティ的ですがアリだったと思います。
    セラちゃんいいですね。
    でもなんだろうな、純粋そうに見えてその娘絶対Sだよね・・・なんかS臭しかしないよw

    まあうちのシルフィールもなんかSぽい感じ満々ではありますが・・・・・・
    三つ編みお下げっぽい感じにはしたいとも思うのですが、正直人間サイズじゃないと三つ編みってやったことないんですよね・・・・・・こうなったらトゥルーデみたいに二つ分けで結ぶだけにしようかなぁ。

    • January 2, 2012 at 4:14 am

      あけましておめでとうございます~
      今年もよろしくお願いしますっ

      なんとその様な素体があるとは、惜しくもノーマークでした・・・
      末っ子のセラはまだ純粋ですが、姉達が碌でもない正確をしているのできっと直ぐに暗黒面に落ちますw
      モノコックさんちのシルフィール嬢も然り^^;

      ドールの三つ編みは長さがある程度あれば人間でやるそれとそう変わらないですよ?
      くいくいやった後、Mods Hairが出しているトップゴム(色アソート)という髪留めで締めてやればバッチリヨ

  11. January 1, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Xera-chan so cuuute. Happy new year!

  12. January 2, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    明けましておめでとうございます。
     
    新しい娘さん、白いけど雰囲気が 黒レンそっくりですね。
     ちょっとフリップとか持たせて、可愛い事呟かせるのがいいかもしれない。

      

    • January 5, 2012 at 8:19 pm

      明けましておめでとうございますー(‘ω`)
      意識しながらカスタムした訳ではないですが確かに彼女の面影が・・
      彼女は基本は無口設定なのでナイスアイディア!
      幼っぽく字を書くのにはちょっとコツが必要そうですが^^;
