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.

    Interesting mod! I’m considering this. The replacement neck joints are nice.. but too expensive considering if you have more then one doll. I don’t think any of us with multiple dolls are willing to drop the bank needed to get all the custom neck joints we’d need so this isn’t a bad option.

    Considering most wigs should cover up the slice without a problem.

    Girls are lookin’ cute ^^

    That’s a pretty cool mod – it seems a little more feasible to me than replacing the whole neck-joint.
    (I’d be too nervous to need to take apart a whole DD haha)

      I feel a bit too cheap to get the neckjoint ^^; while it’s a nice design and all, I couldn’t justify the cost =_=; and wiggling in/out the torso can be a pain :P

  3. Smithy says:

    Those photos are lovely! Mirin and Himetsu look very cute as always.

    Thanks for illustrating that mod, I may try it on Shizuko’s DDII body. (Won’t risk it on Yoko.)
