Remember Ellen? Believe it or not, she’s actually not mine :P I was curious about the 50 cm obitsu body, and after some discussion with Lightning Sabre over *cough* the prank *cough*^^; I was able to errr invite his doll over for a stay ^^;
Thanks again Lightning Sabre (at times shortened to LS in this blog post) for allowing Ellen (name subject to change lol) to stay with us and hope she like some of the random pieces of mysterious clothes you commissioned for her :P

I came across a friend’s flickr photo and realised that the obitsu body has a new type of body, and I liked what I saw, so I bought a couple off ebay to sample. ^^
After some thinking, I decided Hagu (my Honey and Clover “fan art” doll) would be the new recipient of the new 25 cm body ^^! Just realised that her blush had faded a bit over time (oops) hope to find time to reapply soon ^^
So here are some comparison pix of the new and old body:
The new body has soft bust and torso, the latter I didn’t know about so it was a surprise. My only concern with soft rubber parts is sometime they tend get stained by dark clothing easier. But that hasn’t happen yet — I rarely put dark clothing on my dolls.
My older obitsu body came with a bald head, some neck parts which I never use, and some spare hands, the new body comes with a couple neck parts and a few hands as well. I think the older type of body these days do not come with the head anymore — from my most recent search on ebay.
Different elbow joints – the new joint is easier to bend for elbows, but for knee it’s a bit harder to bend to desired positions.

Side of knee joints – I noticed that the older body has more visible seamlines compared to the new one.
Similar pose ^^
Hopefully this entry is for some help for people who are considering to get obitsu body for their dolls. Thanks for reading!
