In the vast world of ball jointed doll options, similarly sized dolls often have very different proportions. Take, for example, Darak Doll Remy and Fairyland’s ChicLine and MiniFee dolls. All three are MSD-sized, but sharing clothes can be problematic given their unique shapes!
To illustrate the differences and similarities among the three girls, we have:
- Vesta – Fairyland MiniFee Miyu, cutie legs and cutie bust, cast in 2011
- Soo – Soom Rosette Fir on Fairyland ChicLine body, large bust and model legs, cast in 2013
- Remi – Darak Doll Remy on A-type small bust body, cast in 2013
Clothing can be a real challenge, if you want all three to share a wardrobe. For bottoms, the best bet are skirts with elastic waistbands that are not fitted at the hips. Flared and Bubble skirts work well. Tops and dresses will be almost impossible to share, since Darak Remy best fits into YoSD-sized tops. Anything bigger usually falls right off her very narrow shoulders! Finally, shoes can be shared quite easily between Remy and a MiniFee, but, of course, not ChicLine, whose feet are almost twice as small as the other two girls’.
Darak Doll’s normal resin is very light and is not the best match for Fairyland’s resin. If you are interested in hybriding Darak Doll and Fairyland MiniFee, blushing the resin to match may be in order.
For quick reference, here is a table of commonly referenced doll measurements. Note that for wig size, I included sizing for the ChicLine head, not the Rosette head, to avoid confusion. Rosette Fir takes a 6-7 inch wig, if you are curious!
