Introducing Collage Evolve - Apparel & Accessory Designers. If you design and or sell apparel or accessories specifically to fit the body contour of Smart Doll then I would like to make it easier for Smart Doll customers to discover your work. You can continue reading here or in an easier to read format with more details on the Smart Doll online store > main menu > Secret Stuff > Fun Stuff.
I understand that there are folks out there who either make generic 1/3 scale sizes or use other doll contour measurements and market their goodies as "also fits Smart Doll" - I guess it would be fair to highlight their work too but perhaps at a later date as this time round I'm focusing on family first.
I've been fortunate enough to work with creators who are exclusively using Smart Doll as a platform for their work such as @maruko_halu, @puppy52, @tobiasmalfoy, @squishdellia, and @bebeandcici
Some of these folks are currently working on our Anime/Hollywood licenses who will be credited on the product detail pages when the products have been approved for announcement.
In order to recruit more family members on deck, it's crucial that the creators we work with have a good understanding of the Smart Doll body - it's possibilities and limitations. The above mentioned creators have demonstrated that they have an understanding of terminology used in the industry and an ability to create patterns on an industrial level that our factories in Japan can use for production with minimum modification on our side. They also understand the shrinkage rates that need to be calculated for items that go through a stone wash etc.
3D modelers have access to their own 3D printers at home - this enables them to perform rapid prototyping and deliver STL files for immediate fabrication in our Tokyo office.
Even if you are not interested in working at Smart Doll Land but would like your online store highlighted then please do participate. Hopefully by highlighting your work, we can help drive traffic to your brand.
If you are thinking of starting your own gig then you can use the free patterns also on the Smart Doll online store under Secret Stuff > Free Stuff. #tokyo #smartdoll #anime #bjd
