Kk, thanks for the help.

Also, I just looked at the page with dolls on you posted, They both cost 462 USD! Pricceyyyyy...... I only have £150 at the moment, I think 462$ is quite alot less in GBP though. I need to save up if I wanna get 'em (which I do) :?.

And, yes PhotoBucket is free.

^ Wellthat's closer than having 150 USD! Though you wiould have to order from the international store, the one I linked to only ships to North America (hence Volks USA)

It's listed in yen, but they're lower prices than Volks USA too ;)

I went on this Currency converter website here: http://www.xe.com/ucc/ and found that 462 USD is 294 GBP which is quite alot less.... And 150 GBP is 235 USD, which is 85 £/$ (I couldn't find a Euro sign) However, for some reason on that converter site they didn't have Yen for some strange reason....
I found however, that they stock Anime dolls, which is of course truly awesome.

Also there are Obitsu which are like dollfie dreams but cheaper and some say, better (Volks is the oldest company to have been making this type of doll, so you are also paying because of notability ) But a base body costs about 160 pounds, the head is seperate. They only have one pre painted head, but you can get rub on eyes (eyes a tricky to paint....) also you would need a sealer that is very hard to find out of Japan I'm told. I have like a 1/8 of a can left (from when I attempted to paint some dollies, but resigned myself to commission them to be painted) it isn't in hobby stores (here, in Philadelphia at least) and very few places online stock it, and it's rarely in stock if they do.
the site

The other good thing about them is that you can buy parts if they break rather than buy a whole new doll (like Volks makes you do....)
The pictures aren't very pretty, but these dolls are lovely in non company pictures :3

Is it cheaper to buy a whole doll or buy separate parts for it?

Yeah they're super pretty! As far as I know you have to buy them separtley.....
I'm starting to think I'll ge one of vinyl one too... they've grown on me.. the resin ones are nice, but super expensive... I'll probably get a few more (including the purple one) when I have more income/actual income....I might get a job soon!

So... You buy separate pieces for them, then you just clip them together or glue them, right? (I'm just trying to make a convo tell me if I'm boring you or somet'ing XD.)
It would be super awesome if you got that purple doll....
I hope you get a job, I'm only 10, I could become a paper-boy/girl when I'm 13 but, you get like £12:00 a week and you have to do one round in early morning in a weekday, and 2 rounds on a weekend.... I'm too lazy for that.... :lol:
I figured out would take me 38.5 weeks to buy that purple doll... :lol:
