    Since the cat and bunny seem to be for Easter, maybe the third onsie could go to some sort of animal for Christmas.

    I wonder if you'll ever go back to some of your old doll concepts, so many of them are really cool and itd be fun to see you make or even just revisit them

    Thank you so much for this you have no idea how desperately I’ve been searching for anything related to creating articulation with zbrush and a resin printer. I’ve been trying and failing to make my own articulated figure for months haha. I have a hard time getting the exact size difference right for the ball to fit in the socket properly.

    What if you made a series of dolls inspired by different plants or trees. 🥺 Would you do a cherry blossom inspired doll?

    It's half a month later, but I am currently working on my own print of your bjd and I have to ask, is the head floppy and heavy on yours? How tight is the elastic for the joints? Did you put a fabric buffer in the neck hole too?

    this is what i have always imagined the easter bunny to look like. Mini pastel bunny who carries around mini egges hides them then uses magic to make them grow. Its so small it cant be caught or seen!! Its so sad the easter bunny isnt real

    As someone who is making a resin print doll in ZBrush, that quick preview of making the doll was AMAZING. I’ve been hollowing my girl out right now using booleans and dynamesh, but I’m always scared I’ve made her too thin or too heavy. I have an ANYCUBIC printer :)

    Awwwwww too bad the original onesie was too big! xD But your first ever made from scratch doll turned out SO good! I hope to see more in the future! If your husband has time to work on it. :3 I think you should keep "Repaint" for the usual repaint of old/new dolls you buy or have on hand. But if you plan to make more custom dolls like this from scratch, name these video something different.

    I love the doll but besides being cute and pastel I think it has something vaguely spooky about it, like I cant put my finger on it but the eyes and overall expresion give it this kind of mystic, pircing look, like in some animation series or something this bunny would be a seer or wizard or prophet or something maybe its just because its eyes more resemble a wild hare than a domestic bunny and hares always had these same vibes to me

    9:20 I saw a technique by moonlight jewel, intead of using cloth try using a small bit of hot glue and scread it on the joints. It looks cleaner and is easier than using fabric. It might not work as well on such a small scale but i guess this is for the bjd you will make in the future
