I need to practice face ups.
What’s a good head to do so? I was thinking of just being a cheap Obitsu.

Working on vinyl is a bit different compared to resin.
The vinyl has a different tooth and colors stick to it a lot more than on resin, you also have to be careful with sealing and properly cleaning the head since stains might happen more quickly.

Little Monica has a 10$ event currently where they randomly put up one of their Angel heads for sale, if you are lucky you can snatch up one of these AND the money gets donated to Unicef :)
You can also try to take a look at Akagi Doll’s special offer heads (here), it’s a big resin head for 25$ and their quality is pretty nice too.

Other options might be to hope for a butchered up head on the second hand market.

Man, recast owners really are cheap-asses.

And who is actually surprised by this?

What gets me is… do you know what else you could get for $530? A MOTHERFUCKING LEGIT. Or two. Or three. Depending what the hell you went for.

Further proof of the zero fucks recast owners give about other people. I mean these assholes don’t even think the recasters they support should make the money they’re asking for. The irony is fucking painful.

I’m not surprised by this at all but not once did I think I’d actually feel bad for the recasters for having to deal with you selfish cheap asses.

"You guys are just rich elitists and we are so pooooooor, we also deserve pretty dolls! Oh, look, just spend 500 bucks for recasts".

Yeah. Sure. “Poor” my ass.

I’ve never in my life paid $500 for a doll. I just wait, and save, and work out what I can get as secondhand parts, and deal with it.

Individual recasts seem to cost up to about $300, ish, at maximum.

So this basically belies the idea of “Oh, I bought a recast because I needed that ONE LIMITED DOLL, they forced my hand really” it’s “I wanted a huge collection FAST so bought an armful of them”.

This is all assuming money is the main motivation for buying a recast.

Because money is one of the major excuses used.
"I’m so poor and deserve to be in the hobby, that’s why I got a recast"
"Doll XY is so expensive but I wanted it anyway"
"I don’t want to pay so much for a doll"
"I don’t want to pay so much on the second-hand market"
and
"Anti-Recast people are rich bitches who can afford legit dolls but I can’t so fuck you"

A lot of the excuses are money based. You get the occasional “Doll doesn’t exist in that color” or “Doll is super limited and never for sale” (which also just boils down to money again, because the limiteds that REALLY don’t come up for sale are not the ones recasted, like Bermann, people just refuse to pay the normal price for a Williams and the like) but most of the excuses come down to money.
And if you can shell out several hundred bucks for recasts you can buy a legit too.
A lot of the recasts are equally or sometimes as expensive as a legit doll.
The problem is often not the money, people just want MORE for their money and they don’t want A doll but they want THIS super limited doll and they want it now and for cheap.

So while it might not be the main motivation it’s usually the preferred excuse.
Of course the main motivation is “I want that shit and fuck everything else”, but the majority of recast owners and buyers don’t want to admit this.

“Do you think Da Vinci wanted his Mona Lisa painting re-printed on mugs/cards/etc and have others make money off his work? No. But people do it and they don’t get in trouble for it. There is only one Mona Lisa and there are thousands of sellers making money off of the reproduction of it. Hundreds or dozens of limited dolls are casted and sold and people make a fuss about it. The people are happy to settle with the reproduced artworks of Da Vinci, so let recast buyers have their own happiness!!”

I usually try to stay out of this Tumblr, but that is most likely the dumbest pro-recast argument I’ve heard in a while.
Da Vinci is fucking dead. As in, really fucking dead for several hundred years now. Even if he would care, nobody knows because he’s dead.
Comparing the rights of a dead artist to the ones of a living one which needs to live from the fucking sales just so you can justify your recast buying is just…well, stupid as fuck.
There were also already replicas of his picture while he was still alive, in some cases painted by his own students.

Also, to cite Wikipedia:
Mona Lisa is considered public domain and free to be exploited, explaining its reproduction on everything from postcards to coffee mugs, with no legal repercussions.”
That would cover the part about how she is allowed as base for new creations.
The painting itself is property of France.

You really can’t compare this. Seriously, stop coming up with bullshit excuses and just admit you don’t want to save and just want everything for cheap.

Famous for its scenery, cinematography, and near complete lack of special effects (almost exclusively used simply to remove bystanders from shots), The Fall was filmed over a period of four years in over twenty countries, including India, Namibia, South Africa, Italy, and Indonesia. One review said, “See it for no other reason than because it exists. There will never be another like it.”
