Dollfie Dream shoulder & hip fortification sheaths by Cool Cat

October 7, 2012

Earlier shared with you how had repaired and re-enforced the shoulder joint ring in the upper torso frame of the Volks DDS and DDIII type bodies using copper tubing cut to fit snugly over the shoulder joint ring.

Just spotted that doll accessory store Cool Cat added sets of machined aluminum sheath rings to re-enforce the DD shoulder joint to their product portfolio. The shoulder sheaths are designed for the latest upper torso parts that already have the wider shoulder joints, which is the default part in DDS v2, DDIII and DDDy III type bodies.

In fact, Cool Cat also added a sheath type designed to fortify the hip joint of most DD base bodies. Their website’s respective pages for the shoulder joint sheath set and hip joint sheath set offers plenty of annotated photos.

While these new repair parts do not seem to be in stock at the time this post is published, the finish of the showcased parts seems excellent and their price tag is very democratic. Will definitely grab a full set once they’re available to test them out!

    Those look pretty sturdy. I might pick up a pair of the shoulder joint sheaths to prevent another issue like I had with my DDS. I’m still annoyed that Volks even released such a poor quality product in the first place…

    Thanks for sharing this awesome finding… I will sure order up a few sets of shoulder repair, hip repair, and neck upgrades for DD3/S. Have been waiting for CC to have a neck upgrade for DD3/S. I recently got one from YJA for stupid expensive price.

    Agreed, Volks should either have such re-enforcement built into the new frames or offer these aftermarket parts themselves.

    The neck piece for DDS/DDIII will surely attract attention. So far I’m pretty satisfied with the already improved head mobility on the DDS/DDIII though, and the CoolCat neck part does make the head very easily detachable which frightens me a bit.
