    SkiaEsh (8 months ago) #19228349I contacted Tap Plastics recently and whoever I got said they could not make custom plastic rods in that size. Did you email/call them at a specific email/number?

    I filled out the order form from the same page I linked. In the length field I put "Other (specified in comments)", and when the comments came up, I put down how long I wanted them. They got back to me a bit later to confirm that a length outside their pre-sets would require an extra (small) fee, I accepted, and voila.

    I'll be severely disappointed if they changed their stance on that. They're the only company that didn't ignore me completely :(

    Halcione (8 months ago) #18689537I took these before I got a rod for mine:

    From what I've heard from others, my case wasn't even as THAT bad. Here are after rod photos for comparison:

    The main point too look out for is her spine. It should be relatively straight. If yours looks fine, I'd recommend not fiddling with her or you might cause the lean, like it happened to me.
    If it IS leaning, I got my rods from TAP plastics (www.tapplastics...). They were the only company I got a hold of that'd let me decide a custom length for the rods for a small extra fee. You want a rod length of 13cm, diameter should be relatively small like 8-10mm. The folks at TAP should be able to hook you right up with the needed rod.
    Other than that, I recommend getting some foam pads for both ends of the rod to avoid scratching. I personally got some relatively large square ones off ebay and used scissors to get them the right size, you'll want to either get ones that are adhesive on only one side (the rod side), or double sided but keeping the protective paper on the side you're gonna prop her up with so she doesn't get all adhesive and stuff under there. I'd also recommend them being a bit on the thicker side so they really cushion her well and avoid the edges, I cut my pads a bit larger than the actual rod so there'd be excess draping over the edge for extra safety, but that might be overkill, not 100% sure :V
    Then just put the thing in. You may need to place it at a bit of an angle due to the curved base, so it doesn't slide off, but it's not too hard :)

    Halcione (8 months ago) #19001549I considered this approach too, but I backed off at the end. Since her dress is kinda uneven and at an angle, I didn't think it'd rest properly and could slide down and scrape itself. How did you manage? Is that spot on the dress even enough for this, or did you use plenty of padding, or even neither and I was just being paranoid? :x

    I just stuck the stand into a dress gap and be done with it. It seemed to balance fine since it's across to where her pegs are. Her dress isn't slippery enough for it to slide off (hasn't slipped yet for the last half year and if it did, i don't think there'll be any damage)

    I took some more pictures since it probably does a better job than my explanation.

    Alsoar (8 months ago) #19001170An alternative to supporting her buttocks is supporting her dress instead.
    The dress on mine almost touched the ground, so i grabbed the support stand from Exelica since she didn't needed it.
    I haven't had any issues for the last 6 months, so it seems to be working.
