The following modification isn't my idea. There are various Japanese language doll blogs which explain the exact same thing but they're entirely in Japanese. This might be the first English language blog to describe the procedure. At the very least, I hope it's the first.
If you've been frustrated with the range of movement your Dollfie Dream has with her legs, here's a mod for you.
Left: Unmodified DD3 leg/thigh frame
The improvement is immediately obvious. The unmodified frame's movement range stops where it's shown but the modified part shows how much better the range is. In addition, the structural integrity of the frame isn't compromised at all. (If you perform this modification yourself, you'll notice there's a pipe piece which contributes to the frame maintaining its structural integrity after the modification.)
You might have noticed a marker line on the unmodified part. That's the basic area where I took a hobby hacksaw and started to chip away at the excess plastic. Tools used for this modification were a marker, a hobby hacksaw, a hobby knife, needle nose pliers, and a screwdriver.
Now let's take a look at the unmodified thigh frame with the skin on:
Seriously. That's how far the legs will move inward. She can't cross her legs at all.
Now with the modified frame:
The fact she can cross her legs is an improvement. The fact she can cross them to the degree you see in the photos is a dramatic improvement.
