How to Carry a Doll
« on: August 12, 2013, 11:22:23 PM »
The two most popular ways to carry your doll is the bride carry, or the bear hug. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.  The bride carry is easy to scoop her up and go, but the doll's arms, legs, and head like to grab onto everything in their path. Also it is tough on your back having the weight out in front away from the body.

The bear hug does put the weight next to the body, but could damage big boobies if she starts to slide down your body, Plus the legs dangle in the way of yours, Also both can be tricky hooking up to a stand if she has a neck bolt.

Well what if you combined the two carries to get the best of both. Start by putting the doll on the edge of the bed, and put her arms up;




Next sit her up, and put her arms on your shoulders. Then put your hand behind her back, and put the other hand under her thighs;




Then pick her up tight to the body, but leave a bit of room for her breasts;




This way most of the weight is on the arm under her legs, but still some at her back. Also now the legs are tight to the body, but not in the way of walking. Also the arms and head are tight to the body, and the same with the weight. Now you can carry her without catching everything in her path, and your not squishing boobies (unless you want to) plus you can see when hooking up to a stand, or move your hand up the back to help guide the hook up.

That almost makes picking-up a heavy silicon doll look like fun.  Well done.

I don't know why, but this photo series is making me get a little emotional.
Its like I am seeing how deeply you care for her.
:'(

I also get a sense that she appreciates your care through her embrace.
Great work man. Good story.

Thanks Ace. After a number of dolls and a few years you get to know how to handle them so they don't get hurt. At least you try.

Myffy maybe small but this works for all sizes. She is 50lbs. but I took about 40 pictures and hardly broke a sweat.

...until a bit later.   :redhead: :drool: :whistle:

Good information and great pics!  I was feeling the same as Ace.  She looks so innocent and trusting.

This IS a very tender set of photos :)
"Leaving it to the imagination" is highly overrated.




Sandy is a B6 F1 Realdoll. In addition she has several F1 expression faces as well as standard F10 and f11 faces. She also has several sets of reuseable "Real Breast" prosthetic breasts.

Incred and Myfanwy,

     Great tutorial! The pictures do show some tenderness between to two of you. This carry works well for room-to-room and in-room transport, but an office chair or wheelchair is better for extended distances.

     It still amazes me to see folks carry dolls all over at Dollstock, but inside and out. Perhaps I am over-cautious, or just plain out of shape! (Yes, I know - 'round' is a shape!)

;) :) ;)

This carry works well for room-to-room and in-room transport, but an office chair or wheelchair is better for extended distances.

The problem with chairs is uneven surfaces, like rugs to hardwood floors. Also they take up space, and getting a doll out of a wheel chair isn't good on the back either. Easier using a two wheeler where the doll is upright and you can use it on stairs  :thumb:

Also thinking you don't have to put the arms over your shoulders. You can lay them in her lap if she happens to be floppy, it might be easier.

Also the Fireman's carry might be a bit difficult with a 100lb doll, and on the silicone. Certainly would have to watch the boobies.
