1 What size dolls do you prefer? on Thu Jul 12, 2012 9:11 am
On the flip side, what size do you not like? Are SDs just too big and hard to handle for you? Are Puki's too small to the point you think you'd probably lose one?
Of course, say why you like/dislike these sizes too!
Personally, I'm a 60cm and larger kind of guy, they fit real nice into the crook of my arm and they're comfortable to hold that way. SDs are a good weight too, though I haven't had the chance to handle an Iplehouse SID or EID yet and might change my tune once I do...
For some reason, minis are not my size! I was going to get one for a young character, so this character would be shorter amongst all my adults, but after holding and handling a few minis at a local doll meet, I just find that they're not a very comfortable size for me. They just feel really weird and too small in my arm. Maybe it's just me being used to handling my housemate and my SD-sized boys... but regardless, I ended up sizing up my kid character to SD and hoping to hell and back that I can somehow mod the body (selected the shortest, least muscled body that I could that matches the resin of the head) to be a little bit shorter, so that at least my adult SDs aren't dwarfed by this 13 year old kid who is for some reason taller than them.
Tinies are a decent size though! They fit in your bag and YO-sized butts fit in the palm of your hand. Some fit into Barbie-clothes too, so if you can get over the really retro- or outdated-styled clothing and copious princess dresses, at least finding cheap clothes for them is easy!
I find trying to get furniture for them is hard though, because either everything is pink and white because it's Barbie-sized, and obviously Barbie means pink, or they're 1/12 scale and too small. Also if you have a mature-themed tiny, finding clothes that isn't cute and childish and girly is a bit hard. (If you have a tiny boy who's supposed to be older than 10...)
Because of that, I want to go smaller too. Mainly so I can get 1/12 scale furniture and build a tiny room for my future Pukisha... but also because man these things are tiny as all get out and I can just stick them in my pocket and BRING THEM PLACES! (I once brought one of my YOs out with me, and it was such a great feeling having her in my bag and following me out on my errands that I imagine it would be the same with a Puki-sized doll!)
What about you guys?
