Lil' Fairy - Big HandsLil' Fairy - Big Hands

I instantly fell in love when I saw the first few shots of Azone's latest doll line, Lil' Fairies. Itty bitty maids? Adorable! I was 100% set on buying at least one of them as soon as I saw them.
But then I noticed their hands.

But having owned both bodies for a Nendoroid hybrid custom(sorta nsfw?) I knew that the big hands didn't have to stay!
There is nothing wrong with the big hands themselves, in fact I've grown rather fond of them after a while of looking at other owners pics, that said I much prefer the ones I own to have the small hands.

I thought I'd share some handy advice for those who, like me, do not want those big hands on our little maids. (I am so sorry for that pun. So sorry. OTL )

1) Obitsu Hands

This is the cheapest option given that you can buy a pack of hands for about 500 yen. The hands I used were from my 25cm body. You need to cut off the rounded bit at the end of their pegs for them to sit flush with the wrists. This will not effect their use with obitsus though!

They are still pretty big but they're a bit better. Plus the rubbery hands are good at gripping onto things.


2) PiccoNeemo D hybrid
This one's a more pricy and slightly wasteful as you need to buy a whole blank normal hand body (the one with the small hands and feet) but it means you always have spare parts if something goes wrong.
You simply pop off the arms above the elbow joint and boom!

They are the size I was personally after but their downside? No wrist joint. Which brings us to...

PiccoNeemo M/D hybrid - ft. Figma hands A
Same as above but instead of the default hands you use figma hands instead. The pegs are about the same thickness but if you find it hard to slot the peg in you can always heat up the wrist in hot water for the first time. I used lucky star hands in the shot below because I thought it looked cute.

And here's a mix of both figma hands and the picco neemo ones from above

But I like lots of articulation so...


PiccoNeemo M/D hybrid - ft. Figma hands b
Ah the new figma wrist joints. Love them or hate them they seem they will be here to stay.
I personally love them. And they fit the picco neemo bodies fine.

But of course. The big hands are still pretty cute in their own way!

Any advice on how to make the D body (with the big hands) work with the new Figma hands? The wrist/hand holes are too big for the joints on my doll.

What colour Picco Neemo body would you recommend for Lipu? I can't decide if the white or natural colour matches her.

The arm, you'll need to buy a new body for it.

Riesz (5 years ago) #2103677Oh bummer! I ordered them anyway since they were inexpensive so I'll try playing around with them. Maybe I could use a type of putty to increase the joint size. The clothing is long sleeve so maybe it could work? I dunno, might be worth an experiment :)
Be sure to let me know the outcome to your experiments and I'll update the blog post! =D

AvalonJane (5 years ago) #2103211I don't mind! I'm always happy to help!
These are indeed the smaller ones but they wont work with the Lil Fairy's arms as their wrists are a lot fatter than the slimmer picco neemo's arms.

Riesz (5 years ago) #2102321Hello! I realize your article was published 3 months ago but these dolls were recently opened to preorders for a re-release. This will be my first Azone doll so I just had a question :)
I ordered one for the summer re-release and noticed Amiami also sells packs of Picconeemo replacement hands. www.amiami.com/... I ordered one pack since they're only 250 JPY but I'm just wondering if these hands are smaller than the ones included with the Lil Fairy dolls. Thanks :)
