The first time I saw a super dollfie I was amazed that such a life-like creation was just a doll. Super Dollfies are customizable, 58-cm tall ball-jointed dolls made by Volks. These dolls are made out of polyurethane resin, making them very durable. Not only that, the resin gives them a luminous glow that imitates skin much better than porcelain. The Super Dollfie name is applied to dolls of a certain size. Due to their popularity Volks also created similar dollfie lines in different sizes, starting a boom for ball-jointed doll companies mainly in Japan and South Korea.
Have you ever seen Angelic Layer, where Misaki opens the Angel Egg and sees the blank angel? That is exactly what every dollfie looks like straight out of the box. What makes these dolls stand out from all the other dolls is the possibility of making them your own. Not only can you customize a dollfie’s features, hair, and build, they can be posed in many different ways due to their reticulated joints, delighting their owners. Each doll can truly be a unique character with their own distinct personality.
The very first set of Volks dolls were sculpted by a master sculptor at Zoukeimura, Akihiro Enku. They were a set of four dolls with the same head mold but different face paint and wigs. Since then there’s been several batches of character dolls, both male and female. Collecting dollfies is not a cheap hobby. The customizations you need to indulge for that perfect look may cost you a huge chunk of your allowance and savings, but the joy of having your very own doll is enough.
