Cool Cat Dollfie Dream thigh stand

December 10, 2011

Had read many positive comments online from Dollfie Dream owners regarding the thigh stands from Cool Cat. Needing an additional stand, decided to give them a try and purchased one.

Less expensive than Volks’ original saddle or waist stands, they also provide an interesting alternative by using a thigh grip and offering a clear plastic base instead of wood or metal. These various elements all appealed to me.

Have been very satisfied with other Cool Cat products like their anti color migration protective body stocking, silicone head cap, alternative neck joint,… so was rather disappointed when I noticed that after a few weeks, the bottom of the clear acrylic plastic type base was showing scratches.

Although it has always rested on a clean, flat wooden desk surface, merely having it on there and moving it without lifting the entire stand up has scratched the bottom.

Granted that the Volks wooden base plate is in a sense more resistant to such visual blemishes simply due to the fact that a nick or scratch can be part of the charm of a wooden surface.

Quite a shame to see such a blemish on an otherwise good product. Having hoped to acquire Cool Cat’s dual stand, makes me wonder if I best simply not get another Volks stand when Saber Alter arrives next year.

If you are considering Cool Cat’s thigh stands and are picky on such cosmetic surface look, best keep in mind the base will likely be easily scratched.
Should you already own such a Cool Cat stands, do you have similar experience with them?

    Yes, I do notice that the acrylic used in the stands scuffs fairly easily. It doesn’t really bother me though, since you don’t really pay too much attention to the stand… You just need to take care if using the stands in out door shoots, placing them on the sidewalk will really scratch them up. 🙂

    I see, so it’s not only mine. Unfortunately, am one to quickly notice such things, not always a good trait I guess.
