– Modifying DD bust to fit DD Dynamite –
Don’t get me wrong, 2B is pretty cute, but I never felt like the DDdy bust was the right fit for her. Based on the character art, I feel an M bust is more appropriate, but I suppose DDdy was chosen to keep the other body proportions in character while avoiding creating a new non-standard sized DD body. Regardless, it’s not too tricky to mod a regular DD bust to fit on DDdy body, so that’s what I did!
- Watercolor pencil
- Sharp hobby knife
- Needle files
The bust I chose was a DDS M bust, since I had a spare laying around. You can tell it’s older because the SWS tone has lost some of its pinkness. I didn’t want to buy a brand new bust for my first bust mod experiment though, so the yellowed bust got sent to surgery. To determine how to cut the M bust, I simply lined it up next to the original Dy bust and marked the edges in watercolor pencil. Once I had a guide line that looked roughly correct and symmetrical, I started cutting along it with a small hobby knife.
Trimming the bust was pretty straightforward, the knife blade cut through cleanly and easily. I made sure to cut inward at an angle to hide any rough spots on the interior. The cut ended up mostly smooth, I did another pass on the inside to make sure the angle was cut evenly, and any spots that looked rough or uneven got a pass with the mini files.
Voila! 2B probably won’t fit her default outfit with the M bust, but it looks quite natural under clothes and should fit nicely in a lot of separates and dresses.
