Obistu FAQ

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 20, 2012, 6:32 PM


I was ridiculously shocked at how well Littlebit was recieved, but I suppose she is an anime doll and is supaa kawaiiiii~~~ But still, I was pretty damned surprised. 500 faves overnight? x.x I haven't had that kind of reception in yonks! And so many lovely comments! So thankyou!!

I thought I'd link where I got her and some stuff about her kind. This focuses on the 21-23 bodies and the 11-23cm heads (these heads are all the same size).

-This is the best FAQ I have found, so read this before you read mine :)
-This is also a great video and contains a lot of information about Obitsu, and a cute review.
-This is a great body compariosn


Where do I buy an Obitsu?
I bought her from Mimiwoo, I'd have bought her someone else but after everything else I bought with her the obscene markup ended up being the same as shipping from Parabox or The Junky spot (who offer the Obitsu at a much cheaper price, but after shipping to Australia it ends up being pretty expensive x.x So i recommend doing a price check before ordering from MW, Junky spot is the safest bet if you live in the US for sure. Mimiwoo will also ship by EMS for another $10 or so if you ask.

How do I paint an Obitsu?
I printed off my own decals (sdrcrow has a great tutorial here, to give you an idea of what they are) which I found here. I print them off in black and white using a laser printer, with decal paper I found on eBay (make sure you buy laser or inkjet paper, depending on what printer you have, and if you have an inkjet you'll need to use an acrylic spray to make the ink waterproof, I use Mr. Super Clear spray, or Mircrosol which is a paint-on application).

I then paint on the details using the decal as a stencil. I find that a lot more fun, I have more control over the end appearence and am not stuck to how the decal looks. Plus I only had a B&W printer at that stage and had no choice XD

I only use the eyes, I find it too hard to stick the small/thin details on lol. Then I paint the rest on. I use acrylic paints and chalk pastels for blushing :)

Where do I find wigs?
If you bought a bald obitsu head you will need to buy a wig! I find they fit 4-5 wigs great, but the 3-4 wigs also fit just as well. I buy all my wigs from the ebay store Mimiwoo that I linked above (she also has a store here and if you click on her links 'Obitsu' and then '1/6th wigs' or click, all of the wigs there fit the 11-23cm heads. You can find those sized wigs all around the internet too, Facets by Maria sells them in several of those sizes too, and those wigs (made by Monique Wigs) are great quality, and the 'synthetic mohair' wigs are beautiful and soft. I highly recommend them!

What clothes fit Obitsus?
The smaller Obitsu (21-23) fit Blythe clothing okay, but pants are a bit big and a bit too wide. They fit Monster High clothes, but I've found only the hard plastic body fits those. As for shoes they fit most 1/6th shoes pretty well - Blythe, Momoko etc.

I got Littlebit's sweater dress, and quite a lot of my other doll clothes, from Cool Cat on eBay.. The Blythe shoes they sell also fit the Obitsu dolls. The info above is also relevant for the Jerry Berry dolls who are on an Obitsu 21cm body.

I got Littlebit's jumper from Cool cat on eBay.

If you have any other questions, let me know :3

I just bought another sub, I think that was one of the many reasons I didn't post so many pics, it's just not as fun being here without one IMO.

Anyway, I'm off to paint some more of my Obitsu girls, hopefully they'll turn out as sweet as LB. Thanks again guys! <3



I prefer that you would ask before you use my photos please. I tend to say yes every time, so don't be afraid to ask ♪(┌・。・)┌

I get Obitsus from JunkySpot! ^_^ But anyway, (WARNING! DERP QUESTION!) you mean that you created Littlebit's decal yourself? Wow, I thought you had bought it from somewhere! It looks so perfect and professions!

I'm going to be getting a 27cm female Obitsu as my first BJD and I was thinking of making a wig myself after I saw this tutorial [link]. It would be a combination of pink and black strands cut in a visual kei style. Do you have any suggestions on what kind of material I should use for the hair and where I can get them?

Hiya ^^ I am not quite sure what you're asking - what did you need? You already have the head and body, yes? There's a person who makes decals (here: [link] ) to stick on the eyes, otherwise you paint everything. There are tutorials out there but I have no idea exactly where, I'm not exactly a tutorial using kind of person sorry!
