I just meant for fit, if that's the body it's made to fit finding a body with a similar circumference neck would work.
thanks kayjay for the link to that fabric- I ended up getting something different, but that was fun looking at all the 'Alice' themed ones on ebay!!
I asked Pipos what the neck size should be for a suitable body. They did not give me a size(or measurement) nor recommend any manufacturer or particular body...they said that the
head is shown on a Volks MSD body and that the head color is 'normal'. I thought the resin of the head looked paler than the body- but perhaps the Volks body had yellowed some?
Anyway- I finally found here on DOA that the Volks MSD neck is 8.5 cm.
Sadly, the body I have chosen and really want is the Leeke Gentle body with a neck size of 7.4 cm.
Is there a way to make this work I wonder? Will it matter?
PlanetDoll neck is listed as 7.5 cm. and the DollsTown 5 yrs body is 7.5 also.
I guess I will just have to be *patient* and see what the head looks like upon arrival...not easy for me & I wanted to have a body en route , LOL!!

Here all information about my Pipos doll budle (2007), the same mold as Alice:
standing , face , profile.
Resin is yellow, it wa s yellow since the beginning.
Necks of custom house little junior and iple house are too large!
Volks MSD fits perfectly... but head can't move. Volks SDC neck is far too large.
neck of Soulkid body is too large
Comparisons of color and heads
I don't have any Dollmore, Minifee, Unoa, Serendipity.... to try other hybridations.
EEP! Got my shipping notice! Now begins the hunt for a body.
"International Velvet Can she wear 6-7 wigs?"
I was told by Pipos when I asked that 6/7 would be too small. They told me 14mm eyes, and 7/8 wigs. But wouldn't reply as to what body or resin tone was the best match.
Here the first pictures and tries! The head comes without eyes, just the head in a pink carton box^^ I have compare the head with Luts normal skin too (but no picture), almost the same color. I have tried the head on a Dolkot body NS too. Dolkot is more yellow, but proportions are fine. Picture later.
Blank head. She has a heavy pink blushing that can not be seen because of flash
Comparison with an old budle
comparison of resin
On a Volks MSD white skin body
I can't really tell, but which resin did you think was the best match?
She's really pretty! I can't wait for her to arrive!
It's realy a good news for me, the maturity of the kid delf girl body is exactly what I want for my Alice.
Just a last question :
You said that the neck hole is larger than the old one of Budle, but do you think it's enough for a Kid delf body ? (I hope that my girl would be able to move her head when she wants ^^)
I have no MSD at home so, if you have time, could you take a photo (from head to foot) of your Alice head beside your Bory ? (please don't bother to put the Alice head on the body )
... I want to know if the body is not too large with the Alice head, I'm searching for a thin pretty girl ^^
If you have not time for my request don't worry, I understand very well. Thank's again for all your photos and answers !

My Alice suddenly shipped on the 12th so I got her today. She really is extremely cute and petit!
But, I don't think her head's being too big. Namely, I've got another MSD, a Notdoll Peru - and his head is waay bigger then her's! O_o; Not to mention te body. It was way too big too.
I measured, his body is 43-5 cm so it should've been more or less all right.
Well, I just hope that the Kid df boy body would fit!^^;;
Now she's sharing a body and wig with my MSD boy. XD
The resin match is off too... Need to get a bodyy o_o;
( it doesn't seem so off size in the pics - but it actually IS! very much...^^
This morning, I have received my kid delf girl body for my Alice Head !! She is incredibly beautiful, more than in my imagination
The skin tone and size of the Kid delf girl body fits perfectly ! If you want a young thin girl style, it's ideal.
Promise, I will share photos of her with you as soon as possible
Kid delf Luts clothes fit very well (of course ^^), but she have a Dollmore outfit at this moment and it fits very well too.
I don't know if all MSD outfits sizes fit Kid delf girl body... I have not find any MSD bodies comparaision pics but Kid delf body girl is thin and have no big breast so, for worse, some MSD clothes would be too large.
I have to select my first photos and I want to make some others standing up, but, this week end, I will try to post my Pipos Alice with Kid dekf girl body (Lily) with his Dollmore outfit
I have made the promise to post some photos about my Alice head LE with Kid delf girl body real skin, sorry I'm late...
My Lily accepted to put off some of her clothes for you ^^
You can see how much the KDF body fits very well with her head, I love her style
KDF body :
I have seen the new body for Alice head that Pipos makes for the futur event... it's a bit strange for me to see the same head as my Lily on a so different body
I'm so accustomed to seing her head on a KDF body now !!
--> Canelle : Your Luc is realy cute and original !!

Aile and canelle-
your dolls look wonderful & Alice looks great as a boy! I think the Luts body looks wonderful and happy there is a well matching one that is easily available.
I have hesitated to post my Alice, because I did not get her a mini sized body and am not sure if I will. I put Alice on a Lati Green body- so I guess she is officially a tiny
The resin match is very good, the head maybe not perfectly tight, but some glue sueding will help.
I will post a link to a nekid shot in my PB album...and the proportions may look a little awkward, but I am enjoying dressing her in my Bleuette clothing!
...and she looks perfectly fine with her big headed siblings, the Lati Yellow 16cm
Here's a picture of the 1st Alice head on a Volks Swarrico MSD Body and with Alice Jr. and Mad Hatter with her. This gives you an idea of color of Volks to the head and what the 2nd series dolls look next to the MSD Alice head.
Hooked on tinies and lovin' it!
