Hey MFC, it's been a few months and my god has my wallet been suffering.
I last wrote about my first MDD (Mini Dollfie Dream), well uh, I now have a total of 4 MDDs and 2 obitsu 45cm dolls! This article isn't about any of these, but I thought I'd quickly introduce them to those of you who are interested (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚.
View spoilerHide spoiler MDDsThis little tanuki baby is Miyuki, she's pure chaos and will steal ur snacks and bite ur fingers so be careful (꒪∆꒪;). Miyuki is actually a dollfie dream choice, I felt very lucky to find her on dollyteria for a decent price!!https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265605.jpeg
Heres Momo (left) and Miyuki!!
I feel like the two of these smug little babies go together quite well (•̀ᴗ•́ )و hence the matchy matchy outfits.

This sleepy lil girl is Nemu! With her modified eye-holes, she can be a little tricky to style with specific eyes, but I think I've found a few that work with her!! She's absolutely stunning~ I bought her head from an artist in Canada and am so in love with her!! (*>ω<*)

And of course, y'all get a Haruka update too, yes she is still baby as hell (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و: ((yes those are some new horns too!!))https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265604.jpeg

Obitsu 45cm Doll - Iris Collect Petit!ITEM #1235911 was probably the first doll I saw and I thought god damn I need her. Alas, I missed the first round of orders and ended up preordering her for the April release in 2022. She's finally home though!! I adore her so muchhhh. I kind of got her to be Saki-chan's girlfriend,..,.,

Speaking of saki-chan, she's doing well and being spoiled af (o´ω`o) ♡https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265619.jpeg

Alrighty then, thanks for sticking with me everyone (•̀ᴗ•́ )و. We're now onto the main event, which is uh... bear stompers?
yes, bear stompers

Ever since I saw the Kumako doll floating around twitter and social media, I've been craving the babies with big feetsies. What's not to love about a doll with big chonky feetsies??? (besides not being able to wear shoes oop-).
The brand that makes Kumako dolls (Puyoodoll) really know what they're doing. All the marketing and promo stuff for the dolls is just adorable (*>ω<*)!!
https://static.wixstatic.com/media/d4e012_672417e76c82422da1f3844367f38651~mv2.png

Alas, the order period for these dolls is quite strict and if you miss it, there's not really any way to get one unless you go into the second hand market. I usually see blank Kumako dolls up on mandarake for roughly 70 - 100k yen just depending on the release and skin tone... Not only are these dolls very pricey, the ones I was seeing didn't even come with the full set/ make up, which would add another $300 or so if I paid someone to do it, not even including shipping (ʘᗩʘ').
I did see amiami had the Rose Kumako doll up for order for quite some time, but uh, that price tag ain't it chief.

Shes cute but she doesn't come with the bear feetsies....

Anyway, I was kind of stumped and let my Kumako dream simmer, occasionally checking mandarake and buyee on the off chance I'd find a painted kumako for a decent price. One day about a month ago, I spotted it on amiami. Scrolling through the preowned section, I clicked on the dolls and saw... "(Pre-owned ITEM:B+/BOX:B)Puyoodoll Original Cast Doll Kumako Full Set Lala Cream Skin Complete Doll(Released)" 53k yen,.,.,. full set with the face up, wig, eyes, bear parts and lil jammies. I clicked the add to cart button so fast ohmygosH.

Alas, with some shipment delays due to EMS only just starting up again to Aus, she arrived safely earlier this week!!! My god shes so cute-
Lala my beloved (o´ω`o) ♡ https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265665.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265637.jpeg
I got her dressed up in the new pink Volks MDD school uniform w/ sailor shirt!! I wasn't too sure what would fit her, since Kumako dolls are a little more chonky than MDDs. It's honestly a little oversized on her, but it looks super cute!!!
I originally had her displayed with her regular legs, but decided I'd switch to the bear legs and feet, since its kind of the whole purpose of the Kumako style. ʕ •ᴥ• ʔ

Now... how to change out the legs.,., hah... It was a little daunting, since this is a strung resin doll rather than a vinyl doll with a plastic frame inside. So I was a little nervous and didn't really have the right tools oops. I followed the instructions as best I could though! It was honestly not too hard, once you figure out how tight u need to pull everything, and where to hold the elastic, it sort of makes sense! Basically you just unhook her foot and hold the elastic at the knee joint with something (like this image here)
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265666.jpeg
Then you need to just pull the elastic through the bear shins and hook it to the bear feet! I didn't have a metal hook to pull it through, so I ended up using a hair tie which surprisingly worked lmao! ٩(^ᴗ^)۶
And here she is!! Bear feetsies and all (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و:
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265671.jpeg
I honestly love her big bear feet so much lol. They r just so cuteee.
I decided to grab out my mochi ashi MDD too, since people tend to compare the two together.
Side by side, you can see the Kumako dolls are actually even shorter than MDD!
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2022/09/22/3265667.jpeg
They really are so cuteee. The two get compared quite a bit, as they both have chunkier legs. Kumako, however, definitely have more chonk and it's adorable!!

*:・゚Thank you everyone for reading this far!! I hope you enjoyed coming with me on my Kumako Journey (o´ω`o) ♡ *:・゚https://static.wixstatic.com/media/d4e012_7bba4227b9bb484fa3d65facefb0a65b~mv2.jpg

New moe point unlocked: bear feet!

For some reason I thought they were really small so the price extra shocked me (thinking like hand-size). While it is still a luxury price tag the quality is obvious. I love the cow ears, the tiny horns are adorable. You photos are really pleasing to the eye, lovely colours.

I have never heard of this brand before so it was cool to learn about something new.

You have a nice group of girls around. I feel your pain with switching out the feet. I have a big size paperclip (seriously, I have tried a few things but this worked the best for me) for switching out parts or heads.
The Kumako dolls are really cute but hell expensive. 110.000 yen without face up is a lot of money. It is common for resin dolls to be expensive but 110.000 yen for a 1/4 sized blanc doll is even for resin dolls expensive. The quality looks good. MMD sized dolls are very cute. Especially the Mochi Ashi legged ones. The thickness of the legs makes them even cuter. Hope you post more blogs like these. :)

Absolutely adorable girls you have!!

I too have fallen victim to the anime dolls, haha. So much that I've stopped pre-ordering scale figures so I can focus mostly on dolls. They're really addicting with all the customization possible. Love to see fellow doll collectors here. :) I'm getting a dollfie dream choice soon and plan on writing an article about it when I receive her
