Help with shoes and pants for mh 17" doll
« on: July 23, 2017, 01:29:07 PM »
Mainly looking for shoes and Been searching so hard around the net, but I am just not clear on what shoes can fit the 17" monster high dolls I just scored a gooliope from the thrift store and she's  naked from neck down and I am looking for shoes that will fit her. But on the net, you tube , and here I can't really find a good answer. Hope there is a place on the net that's easy to order the shoes I need? Then I really would like her to wear some pants , which pants will fit her? Also if there are any tutorials on how to make shoes or pants for these dolls please link me to those. Hope I can find some help. Thank you ! Rawr

Shoes and pants are trickier, but a good starting point is the thread "What fits MH dolls" that's stickied.

Here's a photo thread for 17" redresses:

Yeah I checked that stuff out but still not a real direct answer for pants. Then for shoes, are all msd dolls the same size because someone posted msd dolls shoes fit but which size dolls , and no real answer about pants , but someone by the name SaelaVe posted a picture of her gooliope wearing some pants but I could no longer reply to that thread :( but they could possibly be custom made not to sure.

If she doesn't pop a comment in here, you could always send SaelaVe a private message and ask her.

Hi, rawrhug!

Those pants in my Gooliope photo are handmade.  I'm actually in the process of drafting a printable version of my pants pattern that I'll be offering in my Etsy store.  And DGRequiem has a jeans pattern for 17" MH dolls in her Etsy store (https://www.etsy.com/listing/241721846/easy-t-shirt-and-pants-doll-clothes?ga_search_query=17%26quot%3B&ref=shop_items_search_2).
There are also quite a few sellers on Etsy who sell handmade pants for the 17" ghouls (https://www.etsy.com/search?q=pants%2017%22%20monster%20high).
Unfortunately, I have yet to find existing doll pants from another line that work for the 17" MH dolls.  At least not full-length pants. :(

As far as the shoes go:  MSD girls typically stand between 40cm and 45cm tall and have a foot length of 5cm to 5.5cm in length.  The vast majority of MSD girls' shoes are meant to fit that standard foot length.  You do see some variation in shoe size, but not a lot.
The 17" MH dolls have a foot length of 5cm.  When buying BJD shoes you'll see the inner length of the sole listed.  As long as the inner length is around 6cm, it's big enough for the FTGs. :)

I did a pretty thorough breakdown on what to look for in BJD shoes for the 17" ghouls in this thread: http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,13168.msg269914.html#msg269914

I hope that was helpful. :)
