My Experiment.

I just went and did it, even though I told myself I'd wait. I had bought myself one of those 60cm Obitsu bodies with the intention of holding on to it for my birthday, but once I took it out of the box to examine it the temptation was too great. I had to screw around with it! ^o^

The head mold looked pretty strange to me at first, but it didn't look like anything I couldn't work with. I'd been dreaming of the giant Jenny Excelinas, and I wanted to see if I could make a 60cm version of Leene, my website's mascot. I had considered customizing a Super Dollfie to look like her, but to tell you the truth other than mentioning her name on my site frequently I haven't ever given her much thought. ^_^;....The 60cm Obitsu body seemed like the right thing to try. It's much cheaper than an SD and it has a very unique look.

I painted her face last night. I didn't have that hard of a time with it but I'm still not sure I did a great job. The head has prominent eyewells. I can't see myself doing more than one of these because they'd all look too similar. ^_^ I tried to widen her mouth a bit when I was painting her lips. Here, you can have a look:

She's wearing Saffron's white braid wig. I'd like to get her one in silver because the 1/6 scale version of her has silver hair, but white's close enough for now! The mini SD wigs fit well, but this style is the only one I've liked because the bangs on the other wigs are too heavy. The curl wig looked okay, but the waffle one was horrid. =_=

I put Maya's black dress on her for the time being. SD clothes fit the body pretty well. Leene-chan has a nice body ^_^;....

WOW! You got one!!!
Oh! You gotta give a review on the body! How is it at posing? That's good the miniSD wigs fit the head, won't have to worry bout buying more wigs just for it!

I think you did a good job on the eyes!! How was it painting on a bigger scale?

I really want to get one but I'm thinking of getting an Orderhouse head from Yjapan. She just started selling them and they don't seem to be going for too high,...prolly cuz they haven't caught on yet.

Re: WOW! You got one!!!
^_^ Thanks for the compliments! I'm not sure if I can make a good judgment on the body considering the short time I've had it, but I'm a picky person and it seems very cool to me ^___^. The posability is excellent and it feels very sturdy. I hope that nothing bad happens as I play with her over the next couple of days, because it seems almost too good to be true!

I'm not sure if the job I did is anything indicative, but it was actually much easier to paint eyes on that doll than on any 1/6 scale doll I've customized. I sometimes have a hard time with eyeliner and the shading of the irises, but since the eyes were bigger there was no problem.

Maybe I should post her and her creation info to the Lunar Ark? I think someone else painted one of these dolls but maybe I'll have something new to say. ^_^

You should try getting one of these eventually, they're fun to play with!

(>o<) GREAT!!
Hey!! You did a great job!
I love it! (^ ^) She looks really cute!
And love the colors you choosed for her :D

Do you think those Obitsu's 60cm worth to get? (>.<;;
I keep thinking of getting one only if they make
a various heads to work with, but this head looks
cute though, but pretty anime-ish for me (>.<;;

Re: (>o<) GREAT!!
Thank you ^_^!

I think that the Obitsu 60cm figure is a lot of fun to play with. It's true that the head is very anime-ish, though...maybe it's not for everyone? I dunno how popular these things are, but Obitsu really ought to make different head molds. So far, the body seems nice, though.
