Comparison: Volks Dollfie Dream and Obitsu 60CM BJD

There's of course the obvious difference between the two, so lets get that out of the way first:


The Obitsu doll is 1/2-1/3 (depending on sales) the price of the Volks.
When you're talking upwards of 400, that's not a small amount of money.

Even if you can buy 2 or 3 for the price of one, those 2 aren't going to be the same quality as the Volks.

Obitsu has magnetic feet and a base, Volks doesn't need that , she can stand on her own

The sculpt details in the torso are a vastly different quality

Look at the difference in the structure of the clavicle!
The volks reads much more realistic and with a greater attention to detail!

Deeper into the Rabbit hole!

I started researching the larger scale dolls, and I learned that the best seems to be Volks.

So, being me, I ordered a few of them to be able to work out patterns.

Yowsa, these things are the opposite of inexpensive.

This is actually the first edition of the Dollfie Dream series.
I got it reasonably priced off of eBay and I'm going to completely restore her to what she looked like originally.

which of course means MORE pattern drafting!!!
Poor me, however will I survive?

Apparently the original outfit sort of disintegrated from too much sunlight exposure, but she came with all the original documentation and her original box!

Fun times ahead!
