I’ll admit to giving in to peer pressure on occasion. This is one of the times that it was pretty awesome to give in.
Part of the prototyping process that I go through for Sweet Dolls is printing a half sized version of my 3D model so I can see how the jointing systems work in real-world conditions. It also helps work out any stability problems. If there is a slight issue for a 20cm doll, then that slight issue will turn into a serious issue if the same exact doll is 40cm.
So, I posted some shots of the 20cm doll prototype for the 1:4 scale line. Since it’s intended to be a ‘younger’ figure, I made several pieces between the boy and girl bodies swappable and printed out a gender neutral body for this test. A friend of mine called up at 11pm, and pretty much informed me that there were no ifs ands or buts about it… that this small doll had to be made available for purchase, as a 3D print or resin. Then two more friends asked for the same doll. I relented and made this little cutie available. ^.~
Sweet Dolls is pleased to add the Fairy Line of dolls to their family. ^___^
This little cutie is 20cm tall, and absolutely adorable!
For a comparison of the fairy against other dolls, here’s my darling sitting on a Pukifee. Photo courtesy of PRGerry. XD
