Our friends atPiper Dollshared with us an exclusive interview with Mizuwali, a famous Taiwanese designer, photographer, and founder of Piper Doll. He is mostknown for his Piper Doll creations includingAkira,Ariel, and more!piper doll expoDoll4Ever & Piper Doll at the 2019 Shanghai Adult Care Expo Question No.1:Why is Piper more expensive than other TPE sexdoll brands? What are your selling points?Mizuwali:We all know that the biggest character of Piper Doll is the seamless neck design, as far as I’m concerned, it’s the only brand offers such special design at this point. On one hand, I believe such design makes the dolls look more realistic and integrated, but it also drives up the cost dramatically. Most of the doll fans may not know this but for TPE dolls, the possibility of the head suffering from surface defects during producing is much higher compared with the body. For traditional separated head and body design it’s not a big issue, if the head turns out defective, we can just move on and produce a new one, the extra cost is fairly limited. For Piper Doll however, that’s not the case anymore, if the head suffers from a small defect, the whole doll will be considered as defective and we’ll have to start all over. On top of that, the difficulty not only lies in producing, it will affect the following procedures as well, like trimming, cleaning, powdering, making up, packing and so on. In order to deal with all the potential issues, we have to spend longer time and hire more skilled technicians to do the job, it was all reflected in the tremendous increase of the company’s overhead when we first started. With all that added up, the prices of Piper Doll being much more expensive than other brands is really not a surprise.

Besides the cost of technics, material is a core part of our business too. We use the best TPE material we can get our hands on, I believe all the Piper doll owners can back me up here. One thing that separates us from the average doll manufacturers is that we never use secondhand material (Formed TPE material can be fluidized and reuse), because the use of secondhand TPE material will decrease the quality dramatically (both softness and anti-tear resistance), it will also undermine the purity and odor of the material, that’s why we have a strict policy against the use of secondhand TPE material despite the higher cost on our end.

In addition, we believe the original style and design is one of our biggest selling points, despite the fact that Piper Doll is still a small brand, we can tell that more and more customers begin to appreciate what we’re offering, we’re deeply touched by that and we’ll continue to devote ourselves to making better seamless dolls..embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }Question No.2:Piper dolls have seamless neck design, is thequality good enough?Mizuwali:The answer is yes, we’ve got a lot of positive feedback fromour customers on TDF, I believe what the customers have posted is extremelyfair and objective, saves me a lot of words here.akira school uniformQuestion No.3:Besides the seamless neck design, is there any other special design on Piper dolls?Mizuwali:As I mentioned earlier, we stick to the principle oforiginal, it’s something really hard for the other Chinese doll manufacturersto do. I believe it’s a special character for us. We also pay close attentionto the details, for example, the wigs, most of the doll manufacturers will gowith the wigs easily available on the market, our wigs are all customized,that’s why they fit our dolls so well, it’s not a coincidence. Other than that,we spend a big chunk of our time improving the skeletons, we’ll try out newcomponents to make the skeletons easier and smoother to operate. I’m aphotographer myself and I know our customers enjoy taking photos for theirdolls, we understand what an important role the skeletons play here. We’ll trysome new technics to perfect the details in 2019, we really look forward towhat Piper will be able to offer in 2019.wash piper doll
Question No.4: Many customers asked me if it’s ok to take a bath for the Piper dolls, is that ok? What should we pay attention to during that process? Will the water get inside of the doll? If that’s not possible, can you tell me why?Mizuwali:I don’t have a certain answer to this question, it actuallydepends on what the customers want. In theory, it’s totally ok, but if I have achoice I won’t recommend the customers to do that, not because we’re afraidthat water will get inside of the doll, the truth is we’ve applied a specialdesign to our dolls that will solve this problem perfectly. The reason why Idon’t want the customers to try that is because all the TPE material has holeson its surface, they’re invisible to the naked eye of course, they will suck upthe water and make it harder to fully dry out the doll. By the way, somemanufacturers choose to use a piece of TPE material to block the bottom of eachtunnel, from our previous experiences, it can’t prevent the water from comingin completely, if your doll is not a Piper, it’s better for you to ask themanufacturer for advice before you do anything like that.mizuwali piperdoll
Question No.5: Compared with silicone, what’s so special and difficult applying makeup on the TPE material? Have you and your team come up with some ways to solve these issues? Is there an easy way for the customers to redo the makeup if it comes off?Mizuwali:Due to the higher density of silicone material, most of thesilicone doll manufacturers use air guns to spray the makeup onto the dolls,followed by a special procedure (Like high temperature heat) that will allowthe makeup to stay for a very long period of time, the problem is we can’tduplicate the same procedures if we want to apply makeup onto the TPE material,it’s a challenge all the TPE doll manufacturers are facing up with right now.Like I mentioned before, TPE material has millions of holes on its surface,when we spray the makeup onto it, it won’t be able to stay, it will be absorbedand diffused by the TPE material slowly but eventually. I know many TPE dollmanufacturers use mark pens to do the makeup, but we won’t do that, I don’tthink an explanation will be necessary here (Laughters). For now, all themakeup material we apply on our dolls is made for real human, it’s much saferfor our customers and easily attainable. How the customers can redo the makeupthemselves is a very good question, I think the biggest problem is theeyebrows, simply making them symmetrical can be a big challenge (Laughters)!For the Piper 140cm Ariel, along with the Piper 130cm Phoebe and 150cm Eirian,we’ve sculptured the eyebrows onto the moulds, in this way the customers cansee and feel where the eyebrows are supposed to be and redo the makeupaccordingly, it’s barely a challenge anymore. About the rest parts, maybe wecan take some tutorial videos to show our customers how to redo the makeup as atemporary solution.Vagina optionsQuestion No.6: Will more vagina options be available soon?Mizuwali:Yes, more Piper Doll vagina options will be available soonin 2019. (It was 2018 when this conversation took place, the new Piper Dollvagina options are already available at this point).ariel factory photosQuestion No.7: Piper series dolls have great photos, but we’ve heard some customers complained about the real dolls not being as pretty as the photos, what do you think about it? Do you have any suggestions for the customers to avoid such problems when they’re shopping for dolls?Mizuwali:The official photos of Piper dolls must be themost realistic I’ve ever seen (Laughters). This question is actually verysubjective, I don’t think it only happens to Piper dolls, lots of the productsfrom our competitors have great photos too, but the photos released by thecustomers were just horrifying, I can only say that all the official photos yousaw on our websites were taken by me and none of them were touched by anyphotos processing software. For starter, I don’t know how to use thosesoftwares, I also don’t see what benefits we’ll be able to get if we use themto sugar up the dolls, we just spent a lot of time on the lighting, makeup anddoing whatever it took to bring the dolls to life. Other than the natural looksof the dolls, the owners’ willingness to dress up them plays a key part too.Some owners don’t even bother to run a comb through the doll’s wig before theytake the photos, of course the doll will look awful under such circumstance. Asthe designers, we can only design and produce a sole body for the dolls, it’swhat the owners choose to do that will give the doll a soul and make a realdifference.akira piper doll
Wigs, facial expressions, outfits and postures are all very important when we’re interacting with the dolls, isn’t it the truth? Nobody will show any interests in a doll messed up in every single way, at least I can’t do it (Laughters). Of course every doll is unique, all the makeup is 100% handmade and there will be slight difference every time we do it, we’ll try our best to minimize the difference, but we’re people, not robots, you know.
