Was it really a good decision?

Hello, fellow Coco lovers.

Just an hour ago, I moved Lilith, my Coco, to a Licca body. However, I didn't get what I had expected. Her head seems too heavy for the frail body and she falls back when I try to make her stand up. Bending the legs and arms wasn't as good as I thought. None of the clothes that fit her so perfectly are good for her now. Her old body is broken. I don't know what to do.
In fact, I just feel I made the biggest mistake and that Lilith is different now.

What do you girls say? How do you handle your Cocos in Licca bodies and how do you make them stand? Or don't they stand at all? Where should I get the clothes and footwear?

I really, really need this assistance. Please tell me what you can.

Thank you in return.

Jessica, AKA Arwym Starlight.

My girls do not stand on their own with their Licca bodies. For photo shoots and things I have to place her against something to keep her up. But then, I must do this with most of my dolls other than a few of my BJDs so it really isn't that different.

I can also dress mine well enough because the Licca body is similar to my Blythe's bodies (and my Aztec has a Licca body) so I have some Blythe fashions on hand. There are a lot of online shops and places on Etsy and Ebay that sell clothes for Blythe, so there really are lots of options.

The Licca body is definitely less mature and gives the Cocos a very different look so in a sense you really have "changed" her.

To be honest, I'm not sure I would've done this change in the first place were it not for a couple of things. One of my girls arrived with a body that had completely loose legs. She did the splits when I tried to stand her. Then I broke her anyway, and it was the only transplant I could think of that might work. I liked her less mature look as well, so it seemed a good choice for me.

I hope you and Lilith can make it through this.

Thanks a lot, Eskaline. I am not feeling so bad now, but I still fear I might not be able to buy her much clothing. The Blythe clothing I have seen are very expensive for me. Most over $10, and I cannot spend so much on a single piece. Although yesterday I almost ordered a dress and a bunny hood from Etsy, which I couldn't pay because of a credit card problem. I prefer to get the items from Etsy because of the low shipping costs, although sometimes I find some nice things at Shop.Blytheworld.com and her shipping is free for any order over $1.00. Very convenient!

So I'll try to buy her clothes next month. :) Thanks for the advice!

I understand, the clothes do get pretty expensive. It takes me awhile to be able to purchase outfits I like and sometimes they are gone when I have the money, but I do find other things I like, too.

Do you sew or crochet? It might be another option to look for patterns and make your own clothes in styles you like. I'm trying to learn to sew my own clothes but I'm pretty slow at it. Just another thought.

Best wishes! :D

I am trying to learn how to crochet, but I got no one to teach me. I have a magazine with a crochet guide but still, I don't know how to use my knowledge, and how to read patterns. And I don't know much about yarns or that stuff.
As for sewing, there is my grandmother, but I can barely see her now. :(

Do you know of any websites for sewing lessons? It's okay if you don't know, so don't worry.

Well, thanks for all the help!

There are Blythe patterns online. Some Blythe fashions can be worn by some Pullips. When looking around ebay and places I would type in all names--Blythe, Pullip, Licca to see what comes up. Also, probably some (though not all) Barbie fashions.

Thanks for the info! I will do some searching! And thanks for supporting me when I was sad. :)
