~ A Guide to Volks Dream Choice Options ~

Updated March 2021

Welcome to my Dream Choice guide! This guide is currently limited to head sculpts and wigs, but could potentially be updated in the future to include eyes and other options.

 

What is Dream Choice?

The official website:

https://www.volks.co.jp/dolpo/dreamchoice/

Dream Choice (DC) is a service provided by Volks to build a custom Dollfie Dream doll based on a menu of options. When building a DC doll, you’ll have to make the following choices:

  • Skin tone
  • Body type
  • Head type
  • Faceup type
  • Wig type
  • Eye type

 

 

Where to get Dream Choice?

It’s only available at certain Volks retail locations, and requires an appointment in advance. When I visited Akihabara DollPoint in 2018, it wasn’t too busy so I walked in and booked the next available slot. If you can’t visit in person, it’s possible to hire a proxy buyer to complete your order instead. A proxy who works in the same city as a DC location will usually have reasonable service fees, making it a very viable option compared to a plane ticket to Japan! While purchasing a DC doll, you can also buy additional DC-limited items as well as any other shop merchandise you like. The counter with stools in the back of the shop is where DC is built, and there you’ll have a one-on-one service with a Volks employee who will walk you through the process. In my case the reservation covered a full hour to make my decision. The Volks staff will happily show you lots of combinations during the reservation time if you’re having trouble deciding.

What about D’Coord?

D’Coord is a different doll option – these dolls are pre-assembled by Volks staff and may have a variety of outfits. There are also D’Coord exclusive head sculpts and accessories. Unlike Dream Choice, D’Coord doesn’t limit skin tones available by season. You can buy D’Coord and Dream Choice at the same time if you like!
