Hi DollDaddy27, thanks, yes the dress fits well, UK size 4, I've got her a couple of others off eBay so will try and get some more pics done over the next week.

SO does this just give her more support? help her stand better too?

To be honest I'm not sure if the addition of the washers helps with the standing, time will tell but what I can see is that it reduces the risk of the bolts poking holes through socks and stockings and shoes for that matter. I would imagine that this should also reduce the risk of the tpe on the soles of the feet getting torn where the bolts poke through. As she is now she feels pretty stable while standing and that's how I'm leaving her and hope to get her out in the garden this week if the weather picks up, I will keep on eye on the feet and probably post something about it in a few months to see how they are holding up.

Keiko models her new lace dress, it was fun getting her into it but worth it I think.

I wish I'd done something like this before my latest photoshoot. If you take your doll out to the garden barefoot, definitely do something like this. Bottoms of her feet might get dirty but those areas are easily cleaned - it was the dirt that got into the bolt hole areas that proved to be the most difficult to clean out for me. Something like this would have been a huge help.

(I did have booties on her feet going out there, but had to take them off for some of the photos. Moving and posing introduced the dirt.)

Hi JunkGuy, yeah I had seen pics of standing feet looking a bit worse for wear so stumbled across the idea of adding washers from another forum member, when I got Keiko last week and looked at the foot bolts it seemed fairly straightforward. I also got some 5mm plastic tubing and cut short pieces off to put around the bolt to protect the tpe a bit more. With the addition of some sticking plaster for extra protection for stockings all seems ok. I've had Keiko standing for 3 days with no damage to her stockings or the tpe but of course it's early days. I saw that one of the forums more enterprising members has actually made some plastic caps that fit over the bolt heads and give a much neater look.

Not something I will be regularly trying but here Keiko is managing to stand without any other support, needless to say I didn't take my eyes off her! But once her legs are straight she balances nicely.

Few more snaps with my phone of Keiko admiring herself in the mirror.

That's awesome! I absolutely love the dress on her! Maybe those washers ARE helping her stand. But the fact that is saves stockings and such... I'm sold. I'm gonna try it!

Hi DollDaddy27, yes I was impressed how stable she seemed but of course her joints are nice and stiff and that won't last for ever. When I try her outside I will make sure she has some discreet extra support so she doesn't keel over, also I think the washers don't want to be too tight against the soles of her feet otherwise they will just push into the tpe, rather I have just tightened the bolts up enough so the washers are flush with the tpe without digging into it.

Oh and that dress was from Amazon, normally £20 but it was reduced to £10 so I couldn't resist. Actually it was meant for Sarah but being a size XS it just wouldn't go over her voluptuous hips, so it's gone to Keiko and she seems happy with it!

Some sunshine here in Suffolk this morning, so outside with Keiko for her first impromptu photo shoot in the garden. These are just a few pics with my mobile but will upload any pics from my Nikon if there are any decent ones.
