POLL/ visual realism and TPE
« on: December 10, 2017, 07:09:55 PM »
(This thread is not a debate on how good a TPE doll is at SEX when it's downscaled. Please avoid discussing about it in this thread as this thread is meant to be a discussion on visual preference)

Would you like more realism and more fine details in TPE dolls?
Are you bothered by fine details, skin textures and realistic proportions?
Do you prefer dolls that look like women in proportions rather than downscaled proportions (heads and bodies)?
Why TPE manufacturers unlike western manufacturers choose not to sculpt fine details during the artistic sculpting of their dolls?
Are asian manufacturers "cheap" in their ambitions?

I don't find the 160 CM + dolls by TPE vendors like 6YE downscaled or unrealistic.   Particularly by brands such as 6YE.  I have an OR brand doll which is one of the better dolls I've owned.   

In its current form this poll seems designed to deliver one type of answer.

Has the OP even ever handled a Doll of any material, Silicone or TPE ?...

And has the OP been close enough to any Doll, so as to see the details in person ?...

I think this is fake news.

Agreed!!  It's so much a gray area Camp.  I've owned a Ruby and anyone looking the background of this artist knows he made his bones  in a distinctly unrealistic way.  I liked his Ruby for this reason but realistic it was not. 

I've also owned a PIB by a certain artist who calls himself "'Toonist".  While his dolls have a lot of detail,  I would not call them an average representation of most females I've known.

Yes, TPE manufacturers cater to a certain market segment that like cartoonish and small dolls, that is not the breadth of what they offer.

On certain small bodies (100cm) you would have to scale the proportions or the doll would really be child like especially the face. We all know they over scale the breasts to over emphasize the doll is not too young.

Having said that you can only get so much detail on a $1000.to $2000. doll.

When I spend $6000. on a silicone doll I want realism.

I really feel that as is the market today, and I suspect for a while to come, TPE and Silicone for the most part cater to two distinct and different markets. So that fact alone makes this somewhat of a lost cause thread. The Chinese manufacturers are masters of MASS Production, this is great in the sense that they can recoup startup cost very quickly. But it takes a while to catch up in other areas! The majority of the western doll makers focus on the quality and the visual realism first, and not so much on the ability to mass produce.

Also, you must remember that Oriental women or for the most part smaller in statue than western women. So scale becomes a matter of perspective!

Being a photographer obviously I chose A. Being a photographer I also prefer bodies with realistic figures. I mean realistic for the real world, not the porn industry's fantasy world.

As for the smaller dolls, the figure does NOT have to be exaggerated to prevent a child like look. Not unless you're trying to make a scaled down version of someone like Ellen Page.
Heaven help me, I have been dating a real human female.

I couldn't agree more. Get a doll a see for yourself. THEN, you will have an opinion.

Sure people like the realism as much they can get for as much they can pay for the longest time it will be.
 People are different and they have different preferences, so their (acceptable?)realism is different.

I just want to add...

Price is a huge factor.

People buy what they can afford.

We all want that Sinthetic with layered finish and every item painstakingly detailed to perfection, but reality of time and money is what sets the final decision.

I can't vote for either one of those choices for the doll I currently desire. See my avatar of Super Sonico to the
left of this posting, I would love to have an anime doll just like her ! But is she realistic ? That's where you get
into a "Grey" area with anime dolls. You want them to very much look anime when it comes to the detailing
(Especially the faces / eyes...), but they aren't a "realistic" being.

Take care! litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.

I choose realism for myself but people are able to choose anything they fancy so your questions do not really apply.
Again , freedom of choice.  :)

Not all of us. I'll sell you mine cheap, no waiting, in excellent condition with 2 heads. Aside from a tit repair (which came out well) she is damn near perfect and hardly used. Why? Because they suck in bed and are fragile. Painstaking details do not translate into satisfying sex. Once you've banged the hell out of a good TPE doll or two, it's hard to get off on a Sinthetic. Hell of a photo model though.

Realdoll did an anime face and a huge boob doll before anyone else did it, even their "real" bodies were more idealized women than what you usually see in real life.   When I think of a "real" doll I think of Anatomical dolls and frankly they weren't my cup of tea.
