I posted some pictures of when I opened up the elbow area on the anime deluxe on the other thread FYI. Hope it at least gives some visual of what's below the skin/foam layers. It's sewn up now, so I won't really be able to give any more photos and I only took those 3 in total since it was a small incision after getting the skin layer off.

I think these dolls only have the vaginal orifice with insert. Just not enough room for both a vaginal and anal insert.

Hi there! Bryan the figureman here!
I just posted a couple of months back that i had a similar issue with Tifa (dagmar) in that her arm broke at the shoulder.

The joints or at least the shoulders have a simple metal clamp, made of 2 paddles in front of and behind the ball joint of the shoulders.
A pair of tiny nuts and bolts hold the plates snug to the joint. I used a hex key to tighten so you may need a set.

I cannot speak for the elbows or knees for that matter but i assume they share a similar, simple construction.

The frame CANNOT be removed so dont pull anything out from the fabric!!! I had to cut the shoulder open at the seams. Thankfully i didnt need to pull the outer fabric (skin) far down, but in the legs....those stitches under her breasts will need to be cut carefully to allow for the skin to be pulled down enough.

If the thigh is at all like the shoulder it should be as simple as re-seating and tightening the bolts. The sewing is a totally different matter.
As ive been making clothes for 1/6 scale dolls for over a decade im accustomed to tedium of sewing. If you need to open her leg, do so only near the joint!!!!! Dont unravel more than you need to! Doing a reverse seam (stitches inside and hidden) is hard to do from the outside but you can whip stitch. Example? Look at her shoulder under the skin. They employ whip stitches there.

I needed to re-stitch the under boob on tifa as well. I did not have this but t recommend a curved needle. Otherwise the stitches will have a "bunched" look.

I hope all this helps. Im by no means an expert but pm me and i will help where i can! Btw, Aki? Meet Tifa!

I got around to fixing Sena's elbow (160cm Anime Deluxe fabric doll) a little while back and did a photo log of the process http://dollforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=90504. Doing the leg repair would be harder since there is more stitching to undo. Shoulder might be a bit easier, especially with the threads at the shoulder being the point to cut at when also accessing the elbow (don't cut the outer fabric or inner fabric at the elbow itself since sewing it will probably be a pain). I cut the inner fabric the 1st time I did a repair on the right elbow. When I went back to tighten the left elbow this time, I decided to fix the sewing job on the right elbow by cutting at the shoulder seam inner fabric, rolling the fabric, sewing from the inside to hide the seam, then rolling it back up.

Hey I just saw both your posts, my fault for not being on here as much or at all anymore, but when I found where the loose joint was it wasn't actually the joint it was a piece ABOVE the joint, near mid thigh, that was connected by a small hex bolt/screw and nut. That was the only piece holding the test of the leg somehow. Turns out that the nut wasn't tightened enough and fell deeper into the spaces in the leg so I had to get a bag of new ones.

File comment: That tiny nut and bolt was what gave me such a pain I lost the hex nut but managed to at least retrieved the bolt.

As for restitching I was wondering if a ladder stitch would work. If not I'll look up the sewing techniques mentioned. I'm kinda ashamed that I still haven't got my poor doll fixed up, it should be an overall simple process, but I've got a little too much going on right now. But on the bright side I did put her back in the huge plastic bag she came in and used a small tube adapter on a vacuum and sealed her up so nothing gets in for when I do get back to working on her.

Been considering getting the Dagmar model as my first large doll, these pics made me want one even more, so pretty. Plus the seem easier to maintain over TPE or silicone dolls.

@Mr_Cthulu

Hello! I ordered a Dagmar for myself too and am currently in the waiting loop. Since I ordered her on the 8th of November, I am assuming I should receive her on or about the same date of December. I am getting the c-cup variant with realistic silicone head.

I love the initial photos of your doll in the bunny suit. I have seen another Dagmar in a bunny suit and I think it is a cute way to go, so naturally I ordered a set of ears for mine as well!

Overall the thing that sold me most on this fabric doll in particular was the body shape. She's very curvy and has nicely sloped shoulders. The larger butt and thighs are also a bonus. I like the pink halter leotard you picked out for her.

download/file.php?id=292950&t=1

Any leotard or bathing suit that is cut high in the legs looks great on this doll. The waist to hip curvature is pronounced, but not overdone. I like that. When the legs are straight, it almost looks as if she has kneecaps, which is nice.

Now I have a question in looking at that photo. I asked Joy at Beautiful Dolls for a range of motion diagram for this doll and she promptly provided one for me. Overall the charge looks good, but I had already ran into a discrepancy. I was looking to put the doll in high heeled boots. I was told by other Dagmar owners that this is a no can do. Now the chart shows that the feet can pivot. Looking at the picture above, it looks like you have the feet angled downward suggesting that the feet DO in fact pivot. So am I seeing things and the other fellow is right and the chart is wrong? Or did they recently make an improvement in the skeleton and the feet do in fact pivot.

Another question: I was told that arm and leg crossing is not possible with Dagmar...the chart would confirm that as it doesn't show it...Yet I saw a very recent picture of a Dagmar with the arms crossed. Crossing the arms would suggest an arm twisting element or a ball joint (of sorts) at the shoulder. Can you cross the arms on your doll?

Thank you,
Diaval
