Woot Otacool3 get ^^; Decided to do a dollfie dream mod on Mirin, came across a link on modifying dollfie dream when it was posted by sushi_n_sake on twitter. The link about the mod is for the elbow joint, but I read in one of the comments that it can be done on the neck joint, and decided to try that out :)

Why I wanted to do the mod is mainly because when we try to take photos of the dollfie dream lying on their belly trying to read a book, sometimes their head tend to be bowing too low to catch their faces.

With the mod done there’s a slightly better view of the face when I try to take pictures of this pose.

Below are some pictures of the doll parts, if you feel disturbed please do not continue ^^;

Also if you intend to do the mod, please please think carefully if you decide to do it on a limited bust– example Yoko or Kanu’s dynamite body/bust — It’s a bit hard to come by/replace ^^;

So here’s a view of what I did:

The neck part is rather soft so it was a bit difficult to cut — there’s a potential risk of cutting too much ^^;, so with this little nook I cut out with a pen knife, the point where the head is inserted can now bend backwards a bit more. As you can see since the neck part is soft, the nook is opened up a bit. I’ll have to try to clean up the parts which splits open ^^;

For comparison, Himitsu (closer to us) has not been modded, Mirin (further from us) has been modded. Mirin can definitely tilt her head back a bit more compared to Himitsu.

I put them into similar pose. Please be careful when you try to bend your dollfie dream backwards, do not do it too hard, as there may be a risk of stressing and breaking over time.

    I did the mod for Sasara’s arms and they’re splendid. I’m thinking who to try the neck mod on. Definitely not Sasara. Maybe Rin. If you have a Dremel tool/Hand drill with a wood grinder bit, you can use that to clean up the corners.
