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 ^^;

View from the top:

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.

view from behind to show that the back arc is similar.

    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

    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.)
