As mentioned earlier, the -100% setting is into “creature territory,” but obviously the morph isn’t intended for this kind of usage. Also, the vendor mentioned it’s mainly intended for “arms down” type of poses. I don’t think it looks too bad with arms up, but some of those examples have arms in positions I personally wouldn’t use much.

For its intended purpose, I think it’s an excellent product and well worth the investment.

    • No problem! It was kinda fun.

      On an unrelated note, I’ve been rewatching Battlestar Galactica (the new version) on Hulu and the other day there was an ad for a new documentary called “Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie.”

      After looking at the trailer I don’t think it has much to do with shoulder size; more to do with a burden. Such as, such tiny little doll shoulders shoulder a big burden of cultural expectations and criticisms.

      Still, I thought it was weirdly funny when I saw it.

      • XD Indeed.
        The funniest thing is that Barbie’s shoulders aren’t that tiny as compared to DAZ models.

        I wonder why all the fuss about Barbie, to be honest. We all played with those dolls and their Chinese clones as small kids… a number of my classmates were plain obsessed. But none of them ever said “Oh I want to look like my dolls” outside of maybe floor-length hair, but we all somehow understood the difference between toys and real-world people. And animals =) Nobody painted their pet kittens pink!

  1. Still binge-watching Battlestar Galactica and now I’m hyper aware of shoulders, lol!

    Grace Park and Katee Sackhoff are ordinary-sized women, though I think Ms. Park is more on the petite side. Could be the style of shirt really emphasizes their shoulders, but I thought it was interesting to see the ratio of shoulder to hip.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong in having a conversation about Barbie and cultural expectations regarding the female body and perceptions of beauty.

    Perhaps you had no trouble with the doll’s appearance, but there are billions of women with various opinions and experiences and so it’s good to have a conversation that evaluates the issue from all sides. Some folks have better self-esteem issues than others; it’s hard-wired into the brain.

    Beauty is a social construct, which is something I find fascinating. I still remember the first time I saw Alek Wek on a fashion magazine cover and my reaction to it:

    I remember just stopping to look at the cover because it was so different from what I was used to seeing on magazines like this. She’s very pretty, but her beauty was polar opposite of what I’d been conditioned to see as pretty.
