First, I would like to apologize for the lack of communication about the progress and status of Pulkidoll. I’ve had some things going on in my personal life that took my attention away from my dolls for awhile, but that is no excuse not to keep people updated. I am finally in a place where I can give my dolls my complete attention, and I am hoping to really get the ball rolling again.
As for where things stand now, I have finally finished all the part modifications and pulled together the money to get my last prints and all the stuff I will need to make my casts. I’m still waiting on about half of the prints (should ship Tuesday), and I’ve printed some things that should make the molding process much faster, so I’m hoping to have final casts to show by the end of the month, if not sooner.
My goal is to do small order periods and have short turn-around times, hopefully 5-10 dolls a month. Those that placed orders before can, of course, still go through with them. I know some people are waiting to see finished casts, which is competently understandable, so if some people back out there may be a couple spots open still after I post pictures of a finished doll. For the first run I’m going to be very flexible. I only printed Ngaire and the medium bust for now, and I am waiting on payment from the first order to print the other faces and busts, so I will only have a finished Ngaire to show for now (she seems to be the favorite). Once I have the first cast I’ll try to post a video to show all the joints.
As for the modifications, most of what needed to be changed was internal. The only visible change was the knee, which looks and works much better than before (it now holds the a pose perfectly). Pictures of that will be up once I get the rest of the prints.
