I should have probably started a blog prior to posting things on flickr, but hey, who knew it would be frustrating that I can't share my doll problems with people in the real world (No, that's not true. I can. They just make faces and have no idea what I'm talking about).

Current problem.
Pepper, who is a Skipper hybrid with 11 points of articulation. She, in my opinion, does not have nearly enough motion range. Being the main character of my story, she needs to have exceptional range. She is also supposed to pretty short, tan and sort of flat chested, all three of which are covered by the current body she has.
For the last couple of days I've been exploring other body options. What I would love to have is a 25 cm obitsu marrone with the small chest. However, they don't exist. As a result, I have a Volks Neo EB-A coming in the mail in a few days, but it's going to be too tall. I've checked out Kurhn (not enough range), Pullip Type 3 or J-doll (their legs are so skinny! But I'm betting on a type 3 body anyway, maybe I'll like it more in person), Pullip Type 4 and Momokos. The last two seem like they would work the best. However, the Pullip stock bodies are not sold separately (or if they are, I can't find them) and Momokos are damned expensive.
So, while hitting my head on the wall (metaphorically, I like not having concussions), Pepper is going to have to stay with a limited articulation until I either spring for a Momoko or until Obitsu starts making darker bodies.
