Title: Implanting weights into the Meiki Plush doll
Post by: floydpink on September 16, 2017, 01:38:36 PM
Today I'll share my experience on implanting hand weights into the legs of the Meiki Plush doll to make it heavier. I took pictures of the project and will show you how to do in step-by-step.

I've seen talks about other people doing this, but those efforts seemed to me as a bit rushed, leading to unsatisfactory results such as the weights falling to the bottom and causing hard bumps on the doll. The only negative result is that you need to cut and stitch the doll so you'll leave a little scar. But maybe someone here has a scar fetish or something :)

You need:
- Two hand weights / dumbbells. I used 3kg each
- Thread and needle
- Some plastic foam or bubble wrap, and tape

The guide is here as an imgur album with descriptions for each image. Scroll down to see them all: https://imgur.com/a/UdTUA

Yes, I know, almost a year since this was posted.  But since no one else seems to have responded, I wanted to say thanks, Floyd. Getting a look inside the doll helps me think about ways to mod it without being destructive.
