Amazing!! I wish I could understand her, not because I plan to attempt this but I canít figure out what type of clay she is using that does not dry out and crack.

Truly amazed at how creative doll customizers can be!

I turned on captioning on Youtube and set it to English.  It translated somewhat decently.  According to the translation, she used polymer clay but I don't know if she mentioned the brand.

I will have to try the translation  on YouTube.  And it has taken me a long time to get past being squeamish about degrading and switching doll bodies and cutting up dolls etc to customize. I donít do much because I am son have the skills to do a ton of customizingBut this joint articulation is very I trying and I think I could manage this. I have some bait dolls I will try it on, the joint pegs.

Reviving an old thread....

I have been seriously considering doing this to my male Fashionistas.  Today I finally got a bait doll to experiment on, a swimsuit Steven.  I also got the ball joints by Hobby Base.  Now all I have to do is find my drill bits and dremel.  This will make a great weekend project!

Haven't had much luck on the bait doll.  Lack of time hasn't helped either, til now.

I did find a tutorial on adding articulation to a doll with wire.  Here they gave a cheap dollar store doll (nearly) full articulation!  Of course the wires show, but perhaps you could put sculpey clay or mold some plastic (with plastic pellets) to make it look nicer.

Since the male Monster High dolls have articulated ankles, I'm a little curious if it would be worth taking those apart to see if they could be used as a basis for female Monster High doll ankle projects. The only reason I'm hesitant to try out the Russian video is all that elastic; if I all I want are the ankles, it seems like I'd have to make a lot of modifications to the legs to get the elastic to react correctly.

Yes, I wouldn't want to use elastic either.
If you have a bait doll to try it on, you might consider using a ball joint instead.  There's a link to where to buy them in the first page of this thread.
