little Pullip-Obitsu hybrid doll tutorial by Nko-ennekappao little Pullip-Obitsu hybrid doll tutorial by Nko-ennekappao
As many people keep on asking me how did I manage to make my little pullip/Obitsu hybrids and as I recently found some pictures I took while making mine I decided to try making a tutorial. Some pictures aren't great as I manily took them as reference for myself but I hope they can help!
I also want to say making such an hybrid was not my original idea but a Nekoi Sweetalice's (flickr name) one. Or at least she's it's from her hybrid I took inspiration. ^^

You can find the complete tutorial (with bigger pictures):
:bulletpurple: on Dollieh Sanctuary forum
:bulletpurple: on my Flickr:
Page 1- Page 2- Page 3- Page 4- Page 5- Page 6

- - -

1) This is a picture that shows the "material" as I bought it:
- a 25 cm Obitsu body (but you can also use other 1/6 bodies depending on what proportions you'd like best.)
- a little Pullip
- a 4,5 cm wig (but you can also keep the little Pullip's original wig if you like it)

2) Just to show better the Little Pullip body and the Obitsu one.

3) First thing you need to do is to remove the doll's wig to open the head. This is the harderst part. The wig is mainly glued on the edge (you can see the circular mark left by the glue around the doll's bald head) but it has also glue spots in the middle. I used a pointed knive (please be careful!) to start detaching it from an edge then I used it as a pry (you can also use a flat screwdriver to do this) going around the edge to remove the other part of the wig. Be careful not to hurt yourself nor to scratch the doll's face in some way. The try to lift the edges to remove the center glues spots.
My intention was to remove the wig completely to use another one but I think if you want to keep it you probably can avoid detaching it from the front part.

The head is divided in two "hemispheres" that are kept toghether by the screw inside the green-circuled hole. To unscrew it you'd need a star screwdriver.

4) This is the opened head. Now we have to unscrew the two green-circled screws to remove the neck hold piece (marked with a pink X). Once opened you can remove the body. The pullip neck holder is made of two halfs that look almost the same (you can see one in the pink framed picture), to let the 25cm obitsu body neck in you need to re screw the front half, with the hollow part in front of you. But not the back half (the one you see in this picture marked with an X). You put the Obitsu neck in and close the head. When the head is closed one of the Pullip neck holder piece is left outside and you don't need it any more.
It's not necessary to remove or change the obitsu neck holder if you have the small one on your body (see second picture of the tutorial).

Take care this neckpart thing is referred to a 25 cm body, for other bodies it may be necessary to keep or remove both neck parts. (if you have experience of it he/she please let me know so I can improve this tutorial, or give me the link to your tutorial.) ^^
Unfortunately I didn't took other picture of the opened neck holder but you can fin one by Nekoi Sweetalice here: [link]

In case your opened head looks different from the picture (it's like that in older Little Pullips) you can find a tutorial about attaching the obitsu body on parabox site: [link]

You can also change the eyes if you want (remove the screw on the white part). Here there's a video that shows different eyes size on a Little Pullip head: [link]

5) This is the nude/bald doll.
Take care the neck is not too short or long before closing the head, anyhow if the head is strongly pulled it comes out even once closed (and can be put again at it's place without opening the head again) though it won't come off by itself, even if the doll is put upside down. It can also be turned slightly to one side or another but not tilted (inclined) to one side as the Little Pullip could do because of her round neck joint.

6) And here is a sample of a complete hybrid doll!

Can you send me a picture of the opened head and of the neck pegs? (I used the smaller one in mine but I know Obitsu not always sends the same with the bodies.. :/ )
Also is this little Pullip one of the new ones (the opened head it looks like the one in the tutorial) or it's from an old little Pullip?

lol so sorry for my late reply ^^" and i figured it out :D, the head hold nicely and it dosent fall off!! you'd have to unscrew it for it to fall xD, what i did was used the biggest neck peg from the obitsu (i used a 25cm) and i also kept one of the pieces from part 4 in your picture. this allows for the head to stay on securely and move :) i shall post a picture soon ^3^

Er- Do you take commissions on these?

Yep I may take some but it think it won't be very convenient for the commissioners as they have to pay all shipping prices for the different parts and then shipping the doll to them! >_<

How much of a proportional difference would there be for a 21-23 cm body instead of the 25 cm?
Reply
:iconnko-ennekappao:
Nko-ennekappao Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
(late reply) There is some difference.. in my opinion 21 cm is too short but it depends on personal taste..
Here you can find pics of many hybrisd on differend bodies [link]

Very good tutorial! Does the posing work just as nicely? The pullip head isn't too heavy is it? Like could it stand on it's own like a regular obitsu?
Reply
:iconnko-ennekappao:
Nko-ennekappao Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes the head is not very heavy for it! (and mine has a very heavy braid on it XD)

Yes but it's not very useful in my opinion, as magnets dont'work in the sole is to thick... The second hybrid I made has normal feets

ohh I hadn't thought of that! I guess it's better to get heavier shoes then? I've heard they make magnet shoes/boots now hmm guess that could work :o

Do you have to use a mini-pullip or will a normal pullip work as well?
Reply
:iconnko-ennekappao:
Nko-ennekappao Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
For a normal pullip you should buy a much bigger body to obtain the same proportions, though many people use replace the pullip stock body with an obitsu one as it looks and poses better. Anyhow I think the Pullip head is different inside, so you should search for another tutorial...
