About

Hi all! My name is Nate and I live in Dublin on the Emerald Isle ie. Ireland ^^

I started out helping organise anime cons here in Ireland since 2005 and was doing it until 2015 ^^ During that time I helped found some of the cons in Ireland such as Eirtakon, Nom-con and Anime Dublin and delighted to see them getting better and better. I still help out a bit and currently enjoy selling some anime merch in the trade halls. :)

I was a fan of pokemon, Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing, and what few anime's I saw on TV for a few years previous but my obsession really took off when I started studying in DCU in 2004 and met some friends whom I leached anime off. After that my obsession grew until 2007 when I started collecting figures ^^ It's become a major hobby for me and mu SO and we have maybe too many figures but we just love collecting them.

In 2010 my girlfriend introduced me to Dollfies which I wasn't that interested in until she showed me Dollfie Dreams (more specifically Louise) and have been collecting them as well ever since.

Anyhoo feel free to chat and I'll get back to you soon ^^

Archeotech (9 days ago) #3200771I would love a Yuno doll! ^^ One day!
With Resin they turn yellow due to sunlight and oxygen. You can slow it down by sealing with a spray but any Taiga you get will probably have turned already unless they sealed it and kept it away from sunlight. I have heard of a way to treat the doll to reduce the yellowing but you'd have to redo the face-up and no idea if it actually works.


Hmm so if i keep her indoors its fine? Or not? Well i asked below a pic of an user to ask if she has this problem as she owns her a year now. I will make sure to buy a sealed one.

Yeah same here :) ! Want her so much.

Archeotech (9 days ago) #3199804The Rin doll is a silicon. We had two silicon dolls but sold them on as difficult to maintain and fragile. If you do get her she'll need to be displayed in a glass case as dust tends to stick to silicon. Does look really nice though.
The Taiga doll by Vispo? A close friend of ours is friends with him. ^^ Taiga is made from resin and I should warn that over several years the resin tends to yellow sadly. I saw a Rei and Asuka made by him that were really beautiful but yellowed. =/
One suggestion is you could just mod and make your own custom MDD Taiga and Rin? It's what we did with Shana. Would be cheaper too. The new MDD bodies are easily the best bodies we've used for a mini ^_^ Anyway just something to think on in the meantime. At some point we'd like to do that too. Got a red randoseru for when we do. =3


Hmm.. I will see I rather make a custom doll of one that dont exist :) so gasai yuno or holo perhaps or mao-chan or perhaps my fav male: nobuo ok nah male looks odd i think... For him that is.

I would go for gasai yuno or nagi sanzenin, prob yuno first as I want to seethe differences between MDD and DD :3

Well guess i will take measurements if I end up having taiga and kokonoe rin. I think taiga just shouldnt be too much inthe sun then she shouldnt turn yellow :) or opposite might make her fromyellow back to skin color?
But i will read into it before buying them thats for sure ;) thnx for the advice.

Im fine now with my louise for now :3

Archeotech (9 days ago) #3199407Also you can get wig caps and other DD bits off coolcat
(ext link)


Thanks yeah just ebay is cheap lol

As for the silicon cap it was to prevent the wig from moving yes not staining but good to know in case i end up with a doll who does have dark hair :) like maybe the taiga doll. The kokonoe doll will be fine.

I dont plan on getting dollfies only also from different brands like thr kokonoe rin and taiga. I plan to buy those someday :) not very soon as theyre rare plus expensive ofc. I hope to someday have the 4 wonders in doll form :D my custom doll would be nagi prob :3 tho she does have a doll it seems but not sure how thats like if its more like an azone doll or figma ^^" item #8548

And thnx for the links as long as thry accept paypal i will check. I also found a dutch site :)

As for DOA i got invited and it took uhm 1-2 weeks not sure :) you can only get in on invite nowadays it seems

Anyways.. I heard mesh cap is good for dollfie? Or is silicone ok too? I heard silicone is for the resin type dolls

Archeotech (10 days ago) #3187491Search "wedding dress bjd" on Aliexpress. ;) There's some nice one's there.
Just an example (ask for 1/4 scale size)
(ext link)
Also not exactly a wedding dress but
(ext link)
I stumbled on a cat tail! :)
(ext link)
Snap fasteners and Hook/eye fasteners can be got on ebay ;)
The pink miku set is nice for the price (so you can replicate that figure ^^)
I don't think the maid outfit is good though. I would say after getting a lot of doll outfits that it's better to spend a little more and get really nice outfit than go for the cheapest sets.
We were thinking of making that maid set for our Louise. If you want when we're done we can send some pictures and sell one cheaply to you :)
This is a fancier 1/3 scale set we made for a friend of ours.

I cant order on aliexpress remrmber cause they dont accept paypal, only CC :(

Ohh thanks for the advice and sure i would prob buy it if i think its nice ;)

Oh well im not looking for cheapest of the cheapest as long as its not above 50 usd if possible ^^" unless its reaaly special like I want to find someone who can make louises ballgown or one of her weddingdresses (too many arts you know light novel,manga,anime plus some from artbooks or magazines)

Oh that cat tail seems awesome! :) might buy it there if possible
And the maid outfit indeed looks better. Well im pretty knew guess you can tell lol

And yeah i kind of want to replicate it but that one uses different colors sadly so its still a bit off but well close enough
