The Mega 1/6 Female Fashion Doll Comparison!

Being in the doll hobby, it can be impossible to find a good comparison of all the dolls out there. Being as its a hobby that largely relies on buying blind, we can too often get a doll only to find we don’t like the posing range or proportions. It’s in this spirit that we have decided to post the biggest 1/6 doll comparison we could, using every doll we have in our arsenal! Keep in mind, we have only included fashion dolls, this does not include ball jointed dolls! 

There they are! All laid out!  We used an edge to align the feet as straight and equal as possible. We had planned to use a cutting mat. but the doll line ended up being far too long to do so!
The dolls in order are as follows:
Azone Kikipop (Custom by Jade)
Azone Pure Neemo XS (Sweet Dreams Chiika)
Azone Pure Neemo S (Custom with Obitsu head by Nico)
Azone Pure Neemo M (Custom with Obitsu head by Jade)
Unoa Light Fluorite (Custom by Jade)
Volks EB Beauty Midi (Custom with Obitsu head by Nico)
Volks EB Neo Teens (Custom by Nico)
Ever After High (Custom by Jade)
Monster High (Custom by Jade)
Barbie Made to Move (Custom by Jade)
Original Effect Heyar Adas Teenie Body (Heavy Custom and Mod with obitsu head by Nico)
Obitsu 25cm Body
Pullip Body
Barbie Fashionista Body
Barbie “Spectra of Shimmeron” Body 

The azone dolls have only a bit of variation in their looks when it comes to the XS, S, and M varieties. The XS doll uses a different type of hand peg than the larger bodies, so it cannot swap parts with them. However, the larger bodies all use universal interchangeable hands (just be sure to match the skintone). They can also all share clothes, though the XS may not fit S and M sized clothing without looking a bit baggy and loose. The XS clothes, however, fit pretty well on the S and M sizes. Shoes are completely interchangeable between the three sizes.

Azone and Obitsu 25cm. They are very similar in measurements and can share clothing. The Obitsu are a bit larger, cheaper, and have a greater range of poseability, but the Azone bodies look much more shapely, with a soft matte finish and a solid weight.

blog post 16

For my key term flection, I wanted to discuss discourse community, audience, purpose, and remediation. I feel like those four words work together when composing a paper. Not so much discourse community but the other three I do. I plan to talk about what a discourse community is and how we are daily visitors of one everyday. Then I will talk about the interconnectivity of audience and purpose. Once you have a purpose of writing a paper, you need to identify who your audience is so you can determine the right terminology and tone to put into your paper to come across as effective as you can. You do not want to use medical slang or terms when talking to an adult or child when explaining a health problem because almost all of the time not know what you are saying so you are not communicating very effectively. Then I will talk about remediation and how it is all around us in the world like how some people take a bus to work but others take a car or walk or even bike to work. Remediation is also interconnected with audience and purpose because to express something in a different manner you need to know who the audience is so you can make it effective. If you want to explain something to a child,  you would use a different means of communication like a children’s book but to communicate with an adult, you would not use a children’s book.

on the rocks

these flections back and forth
weaken at the waist.
a metronome of outbursts wailing,
sirens that call in the distance, 
like jagged rocks beckoning to us
from the oblique safety 
of the sea.

we are, mariners
in search of meaning.
transient, isolated
abstract on a sliding scale,
hung precariously at the cusp
of almost
listing toward the shore.
