Weekly summary 06/2019
this is a summary of what was going in the doll world in the past 6th week of 2019, as far as we at Dollstudio & DS Doll Europe were concerned.
In short, there was not much. It's a slow time.
1) Latest blog posts.
Our daily blog posts feature mostly new photo sets, showcasing dolls and heads in various configurations.
Among some other things, we have posted these new picture series during the past week:
- Jarliet JA-166 body style and ›Jen‹ head
- Sanhui SH-168 body style and ›Marya‹ head (SH-008)
- OR Doll OR-156/H body style and ›Shally‹ head (OR-032 / Jinsan no. 261)
- SY Doll SY-164 body style and head no. 170
These blog posts are mirrored on the Latest blog posts section all three Dollstudio websites. It is sorted in reverse chronological order, newest posts on top:
- Dollstudio US - http://us.dollstudio.org/blog
- Dollstudio EU - http://eu.dollstudio.org/blog
- Dollstudio DE - http://de.dollstudio.org/blog
(EU and US sites in English, DE site in German)
2) CNY closing schedules.
Most factories are still closed and will remain closed for at least another week; the same goes for the relevant Chinese logistics and shipping companies.
So yes, one more week with neither completed nor shipped dolls.
3) Other topics.
Registration and legal formalities for Indigo's cold-welding TPE & TPR diffusion adhesive (in short 'CWA') have been finalized. It is to a certain extent brand agnostic and will work an many TPE and TPR blends. The important part is that with the CWA we become a little bis less dependent on the cooperation of Chinese factories.
During the past weeks I have posted a couple of 'how to' tutorials over here in Indigo's support forum, so you can visually compare if you need the CWA to repair certain types of injuries. Product launch will start on Dollstudio US within the next couple of days.
On TDF, a couple of new brands were listed. Among them Aiersha/Junying rebrands like AF Doll and finally Jarliet. In TDF terminology those are 'manufacturers'; this might appear confusing as, on their websites, they show a lot of photos already known from certain other (unlisted) factories, mixed with own/exclusive bodies and heads. So the researchers among you will have some challenges (and hopefully also some fun) to untangle the actual heritage.
Currently we do not have access to their TPE material yet, so as far as repair/maintenance accessories like Indigo's TPE repair kit are concerned, those 'newcomers' are unsupported brands. If you are representing one of these new brands/manufacturers, please feel free to contact us or Indigo directly if you want to make your dolls repairable and maintainable with products like Indigo's tpe repair kit or check for the compatibility with Indigo's stain remover.
