Title: Busty Bespectacled Brie
Post by: JunkGuy on February 14, 2019, 11:11:58 AM
I've started uploading photos of my doll Brie to my gallery (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/index.php?cat=12792), starting with some candids and contest submissions (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2157) from the past. I've got 800+ photos from all my photosets so it'll take time to get through those and I'll add them as I see fit and have the time. (Coppermine isn't ideal for loading this many.)

Some of the best uploaded thus far:

My Brie is a WMDolls 165K in natural/fair skintone with WM head 74. I've owned her since September 2016, though I replaced her with a second body and head in early 2018 after the first's damages began to become difficult to photograph around. She's a tall and very large chested doll, with long platinum blonde hair, blue eyes, and glasses. She has the standing option and, with the second body, the shrugging shoulders/hinged neck skeleton as well. I've taken black Sharpie to the inside of the nostrils for increased realism, and I like to move her eyes around and use oral inserts to give her varied expressions. I'm not so great at digital imagery and composition, so in most of my work I only employ digital editing for cleaning up dust or bad pixels, and removing the unsightly necklines, stray hairs, or lighting reflections in her glasses.

Some of my earlier photos were done with my Samsung S6 phone, but I've been using a Nikon D5300 since spring 2017. I have two medium sized light boxes and a stand for backdrops. I'm not a professional photographer so this is usually enough equipment for me. I tend to work with what I've got around the house or outside in my large, enclosed (and most of all, private) backyard. I do like to employ props for my photos; Brie is often holding something.

Feel free to comment or repost other photos from my gallery that you particularly like. I intend this thread to be my landing zone for new Brie photos but I don't wish to monopolize conversation.

Being Valentine's Day today, here's my latest, Heartfelt. (Since the naming pun isn't obvious, the heart shape pillow is covered in felt.)  I'm rather proud of how this one turned out, but regret not letting the roses soak up some water from a vase overnight Tuesday, as the bulbs are a good deal larger this morning than they were yesterday when I took the photo, having gone dry for a day since buying them.

Here's the first set of my old TDF photoshoots uploaded to my ODC gallery (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/index.php?cat=12792).  I'm uploading in order of oldest to newest, so these are the first few I did.  Brie still had her factory wig and I was still using a cell phone camera (Galaxy S6) for all of these.

I've included a few sample thumbnails of the better pics - if you like, visit the gallery to view the full sets.  Post links to others you like and discuss freely.  All of these are over two years old now, so I haven't been able to talk about them much lately.

Brie the Bunny (Halloween 2016) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2163)
Brie in a pink leotard, bunny tail and ears, posing in my backyard. Striptease at the end next to the fence, but the setting sun caused overhead branches to make much more dark shadows than I intended (and make for really bad thumbnails)
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_bunny_001.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2163&pos=0) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_bunny_024.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2163&pos=23) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_bunny_057.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2163&pos=56) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_bunny_071.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2163&pos=70) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_bunny_079.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2163&pos=78)

Red Curtains, White Pearls (taken late November 2016, originally posted early December 2016) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2164)
Brie in red panties, then later nude, in between a pair of heavy red blackout curtains, wearing a long stream of pearls. My lighting wasn't very good and after this shoot I realized I needed to find something to darken her areolae after factory tone had worn off (specifically, apricot lipstick)
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_pearls_01.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2164&pos=0) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_pearls_04.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2164&pos=3) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_pearls_10.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2164&pos=9) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_pearls_13.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2164&pos=12) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_pearls_14.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2164&pos=13)

Stuff These Stockings (Christmas 2016) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2165)
Brie wearing a Santa cap, white panties and thigh high stockings. A Christmas present worth unwrapping. Some fun with candy canes, too. This was first shoot in which I seriously played around with eye direction and used actual doll oral inserts (both teeth and tongues) rather than some plastic Halloween vampire teeth that I'd cut down to size and used in the first two photosets, so this became the first of the sets giving Brie a lot of varied expressions. Also, the first of my sets with a pun in the name.
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_stockings_03.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2165&pos=2) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_stockings_14.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2165&pos=13) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_stockings_19.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2165&pos=18) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_stockings_23.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2165&pos=22) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_stockings_29.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2165&pos=28)

Winter Daybreak (taken mid-January 2017, originally posted February 8, 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2166)
Sort of a spur of the moment photoshoot.  Weatherman had predicted snow in the morning, and that's rare in my part of the USA so I took advantage of it and got out early before it would melt away.  Didn't realize the sun rising behind her would make for such interesting shots. My phone battery died near the end, so I had to use my tablet's camera and quality isn't as good on the last few.
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_daybreak_03.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2166&pos=2) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_daybreak_05.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2166&pos=4) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_daybreak_07.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2166&pos=6) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_daybreak_19.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2166&pos=18) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_daybreak_23.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2166&pos=22)

Love for Sale (Valentines Day 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2167)
Brie in a red party dress, heels, and fishnet stockings, with some cash and coin thrown about. She receives some chocolates and roses, then does her striptease.  While I'd preplanned a few of the poses for the Christmas set above (undoing a bow, licking a candy cane, and holding some between her breasts), this is the first photoshoot in which I preplanned almost the entire sequence of poses, a process I've always used since.

Wow, that's a flood of very nice pictures.
This one I like very.
Brie is stunning. She has a very special shape of breasts. They are soft right? Little's are similarly shaped but not soft and have not that special big long nipple's  :drool: 

Title: Re: Busty Bespectacled Brie
Post by: JunkGuy on March 03, 2019, 10:47:04 AM
Actually not that soft. The breasts are hollow, but the TPE walls are very thick - on the order of 3/4 inch (2cm) thick. They aren't water balloon consistency like human breasts if that's what you're asking. However, they hold shape well even when laying down or bending over, which is great for photography, but they're much more resistant to squeezing than the real thing or less busty dolls who don't need such thick walls. I'd say its comparable to squeezing her thighs, if the leg bone weren't there.  Being hollow though, they'll dance around with sufficient movement and once the resistant pressure of the TPE walls is overcome they can be squeezed quite tightly but will bounce back immediately upon release.

I made these videos two years ago when I was asked similar question about range of motion and softness. They aren't sex videos, just Brie laying on the bed while getting shaked and fondled. About a minute or two each.

https://vimeo.com/200116038 (https://vimeo.com/200116038)
Bouncing and shaking, range of motion without being directly touched.

https://vimeo.com/200116155 (https://vimeo.com/200116155)
Squeezing, poking and groping, general softness, range of motion while touched. I'm pushing and squeezing much harder than it probably looks though.

https://vimeo.com/200116197 (https://vimeo.com/200116197)
"Charmin test". Something else to show softness and resistance in a less subjective way than using my hands. Inspired by the old commercial that touted Charmin's softness. I make harder squeezes on the rolls second half than first. The inner tubes crush easily, indicating a lot of resistant pressure being applied against the tissue paper. (Charmin Ultra Strength if curious about exact type used.)

I rather wish the TPE walls were thinner myself. Hugging her is like having two fully inflated beach balls between us - which as you can imagine would take similar pressure to deform. I'd be happy if they were just half inch or 1/3 inch thick, which would probably still be enough to hold up the breast TPE without stretching.  I'd certainly sacrifice some of the firmness and photography attributes for softness if I could - I can put her in a bra or tighter clothes to regain those elements if needed, but can't go the other way with any clothes that make them softer.  The WM165K was first really big breast doll to market though - I've heard later models (both by Jinsan and other companies) learned this lesson and do have thinner walls and are softer, but this is secondhand info as I've not experienced any of them myself and owner videos to compare against mine are rare. (Why don't vendors or factories make them? Feels like a huge selling point is being missed with photos only.)

The long nipple size was introduced on what WM originally called the "Full Figure" variant, which also had larger areolae and no underbreast ribcage skin folds. They've since done away with any distinction between the two models and many vendors let you choose between the small or large nipples and areolae size as model-specific options. Brie has largest of both. I got her from RLSD which now provides such options on their web page (https://reallovesexdolls.com/165cm-wm-5ft5-k-cup/), though any good Jinsan/WMDolls vendor should be able to do same if you ask.

Wow, thank you for all this nice and detailed information.
Breasts are a very nice topic.
The videos are great and well made. They underline what you write.

Yes, it is a pity that there are no more videos.

You could do a more scientific breast softness test; http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4875.0

Camp has two TPE dolls, one with big breasts but not hollow. The other is a new WM Doll with smaller, but hollow breasts. Those are much thinner walled than my WM Doll only a couple years older. That makes a big difference in squish-ability  :drool:

Thanks incred. I'd seen that thread with the one liter water bottle trick. I haven't purchased any liter drinks since seeing it to try it though.

And I'm not entirely sure of it being a measurable effect anyway. 1 liter of water is 1 kilogram, or 2.2 pounds (not counting the bottle, so I took a moment during my previous post to go put some weights on Brie's breasts to see how they'd deform. I did not notice any difference at 2 pounds, and only beginning to deform at 3 pounds. I was going to mention this in the above post but thought about it for a minute and realized that the much larger surface area of my weights as compared to the water bottle cap may not make for a fair comparison.

I'll look to do the water bottle measurement in the near future though.

I remember the Mythbusters had a scientifically recognized softness measurement machine (http://texturetechnologies.com/texture-analyzers/ta-xtplus-texture-analyzer) that they used in the cheese cannonball episode to test hardness/softness of different cheeses to settle on a few that could make suitable cannonballs. That's what we need for a really scientific method, but its not cost efficient. Water bottles and tissue paper will do.

Post by: incred on March 04, 2019, 11:05:17 PM
Yup, a 1 liter of water should be at any convenience store.

An issue you might also have with those big boobs is that the bottle may push them to the side.

You may have to find a way to hold them.

I think my hands will be busy holding the ruler and bottle from above. I'll need remote trigger for the camera on tripod, too.
Volunteers? :D

I'll probably just have to move her arms up so the breasts are between her elbows. When laying on her back, they do hang off to either side a bit. (Which brings me to another point, its bad for a big breasted doll like the WM 165K to lay on back all the time because it strains the TPE between breasts, leading to wrinkles in the skin and potentially even tears. Brie already has a small wrinkle, which is why she now sleeps on her side with a rolled up shirt under one so that they both try to point as straight forward as possible. The shirt makes up the difference between mattress and breast corresponding to her shoulder.)

 A bra would work for the test. You would just need side support if you could open the cups a bit.

Second set of album uploads to my ODC gallery (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/index.php?cat=12792), covering spring and summer of 2017.  I'm much happier with these sets than the previous work. I had a new camera (a Nikon D5300), a new wig for Brie, and got more creative with the outfits, poses, and themes. I told a bit of a story with the Valentine's Day Love for Sale (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2167) set, but with these I started refining my storytelling and incorporating many more props.  I was also beginning to jot down pose ideas as Hangman-style line drawings beforehand, which helped make for easier photography sessions and more varied poses and expressions.

Spring Fever, Part One: Loves Me Not? (taken late April 2017, posted June 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2202)
Brie in a daisy-themed vest and skirt, with tiara and necklace, sitting in a chair and looking out the window before her thoughts change to other things. I'd been anxious to use this awesome vest I found at Goodwill and wanted to get outside and put Brie among the flowers but Mother Nature just would not cooperate. Given the "Loves Me, Loves Me Not" theme from her vest, I decided to make a two parter: the first half where she's stuck indoors and melancholy, and the second outdoors in the sun.  #23 (the third thumbnail below) is one of my all time favorites - it just has this instant emotional feel to it.
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring1_01.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2202&pos=0) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring1_05.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2202&pos=4) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring1_23.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2202&pos=22) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring1_26.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2202&pos=25) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring1_36.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2202&pos=35)

Spring Fever, Part Two: Loves Me! (taken mid-May 2017, posted June 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2203)
This is what I'd intended to do, but had to wait several more weeks for fair weather. I'm quite fond of my photographs where Brie appears to blows bubbles (#20-#22, second thumbnail below) - to my knowledge no one had pulled off that trick with a doll before. The wind was a little stronger than I would have liked and kept blowing hair across her face though.
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring2_10.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2203&pos=9) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring2_22.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2203&pos=21) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring2_29.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2203&pos=28) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring2_33.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2203&pos=32) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/thumb_spring2_40.jpg) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2203&pos=39)

Star-Spangled (July 4, 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2204)
Brie decked out in American flag bikini top, short shorts, cowgirl hat and shoes, playing with fireworks, flags, and ribbons to celebrate American Independence Day (even though she's natively English.)  This is the first album to really focus heavily on props. Most people who have offered an opinion claim this is their favorite set. I don't know exactly what I did in this set, but its one where she looks like she's having the most fun, and at the end has the hottest topless photos I think I've ever taken of her. Ramping up the never-before-done-with-a-doll aspect, I put a live sparkler in her hand for a few photos. Do not try this at home! I singed the front of her hat and its a miracle none of the sparks flew into her face or down onto her hands or chest to scar her. (Looking back on it, this was an exceptionally stupid thing to do but I didn't realize how dangerous it was until I noticed the singed hat several photographs later.)

"A Mid-Summer Night's Dream" (August 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2205)
Brie in long white dress with fairy wings and pearl strands, sitting in a tree at night. After doing several outdoors shots, I had an urge to do something radically different, and somehow came to settle upon Shakespeare's A Mid-Summer Night's Dream as the theme, which worked out lovely as it afforded me a nighttime shoot (which I'd never done before), a long dress for Brie (which I'd also never done before), and it allowed me to cast her as Tit-ania, queen of the fairies (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titania) (which fit with Brie's English heritage and literary passion.) I actually took these photos from about 1-2am - I hope the camera flashes didn't alarm my neighbors.

More photosets, covering October 2017 to February 2018.  I'm rather pleased with most of these, though I noticed the yellow dye from her wig had stained the sides of her face and shoulders since summer and this shows up in some photos from this time period (I since switched to an all white wig for daily use, but by then, damage was done.) By December, tears on her right kneecap and in her crotch were no longer repairable, and combined with the dye stains, I opted to replace her with Black Friday discount in November. Thanks to an order snafu, they had to make my doll a second time with the new shrugging shoulder/hinged neck option, and I didn't get her until late February, requiring me to use the 1.0 body through each of these photoshoots. The crotch area I could hide under clothing rather easily, but for the knee I had to get creative with cropping, covering it up with clothing or a towel, or spend extra time digitally editing the photos. I feel that some photos in these sets could have been better if I didn't have to deal with these problems, but overall it wasn't a huge detriment.

Wonderland (October 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2223)
For my second Halloween set, I decided to do more cosplay and more storytelling, opting for something immediately recognizable. I'd always felt Brie and Alice were something of kindred spirits - both English, blonde, incredibly curious, smart mouthed, and a little questioning of authority - so it seemed a natural fit. Furthermore, I experimented with some colorful construction paper backgrounds to further associate with the Disney cartoon feel, which is how most people visualize Alice (moreso than the original Tenniel illustrations.)  Some of the props I merely borrowed for the shoot and returned, but opted to keep the bunny, who we named Prince Hare-y. He's made a few cameos in Brie's candid photos and contest submissions since this shoot.

2017 Doll Christmas Gift Exchange (Christmas 2017) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2224)
Several of the dolls and their owners at another forum got together to exchange Christmas gifts amongst themselves. Brie and I were paired up with the late, great CrazyCajun and his primary doll, TripleA. Brie first opens her gift from me: a heart-shaped gemstone necklace with American flag design on one side and British on reverse.  Then she tackles TripleA's gifts: a pair of white jeans, a jewelry box, and dreamcatcher necklace. This wasn't a full photoset, but enough photos to warrant its own album.

Yours, All Year Long (New Years 2018) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2225)
Since I'd done a Christmas theme the previous year, I wanted to do something different in 2017, and went with a New Years party theme. And black, too, which generally isn't a safe color for TPE but since I was replacing her anyway, I felt I could risk it. I was still careful enough to wear white panties under the black and test the materials for staining. (Only the boa gave me problems and only light surface staining that was easily removed with some baby oil.)  This was one of my most fun photoshoots, though throwing all that confetti into the air maybe wasn't the best idea, as it took a good long while to clean up off of both Brie and the floor - and I was still finding pieces of tracked around the house for many days after.

Valentine's Date (Valentine's Day 2018) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2226)
For 2017 I had told a story of how guys could win their heart of their girl by bringing them chocolates and roses.  In 2018, I flipped the script and had Brie tell the girls how to win their guy's heart through sight, smell and taste. A sexy outfit, nice perfume, and your man's favorite meal works every time. This is another of the mini-photosets, and the last with the old body.

Here is the "Bath Time" photo Feguro is talking about for those that didn't see it in the May challenge. (Or if you're reading this post many months from post time.)

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/bathtime.jpg) (http://ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-60240)

This is the first time I'd submerged Brie in a bath. Since she's got standing feet option, I covered her feet in plastic bags and used rubberbands to make a watertight seal around the ankles so water wouldn't get into her foot bolts or the skeleton. I tried to tie up her hair with two rods to make it appear she didn't want to get most of her hair wet but it didn't hold as well as I'd have liked; no oils in hair to make it stick so its mostly just held up by the pillow and the wall behind her, minus those loose wisps across her shoulders. It was Memorial Day weekend so I added her heart-shaped American flag gemstone necklace. Its not really a glass of wine - its Sierra Mist instead. The book is absolutely real though (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bored_of_the_Rings) - this isn't a digital edit. The only edit I made was to blur her neckline.

She's a natural in the water! Her hair and posture are great.  :thumb:
