Now Taiga can stand on her own with some careful balancing, thanks to kips!
What is kips?
I must thank Chibichibiusa again for bringing to our attention this little item which fixes the floppy knee problem which the Mini dollfie dream body have.
I could only find kips on volksusa for some reason (maybe I was looking at the wrong section?), so I took the opportunity to order some extra bits and bobs after some thinking.
Took the chance to document the kipping process too ^^ so I guess it’s somewhat a photo tutorial of sorts… In case I missed anything, I recommend checking out Chibichibiusa’s tutorial on figure.fm too ^^/
So this is what the MDD (Mini Dollfie Dream) legs look like, the knees joints especially are somewhat weak/loose so most MDD cannot stand on their own at all.
Disassemble one leg first.
Unscrew the 2 screws as seen below.
Position one of the smaller kips where the knee joint is
Screw the piece back on…
I had to adjust to make sure it’s tight enough but still able to do other poses
I noticed that the ankle part is a bit loose so kipped that part too ^^ the kip is made of some type of soft rubbery like material so it stretches a bit — enough to put it thru the stick part before the ankle ball joint.
And of course do the same with the other leg…
Yey!!! So glad it works! I’m so happy that Taiga is still standing next to my computer lol
Taiga tried the wig which came with this package ^^; I made the hairband for Himitsu’s Haruhi cosplay (in future progress) ^^
