The KiSS forum board was closed as it only gathered 3 posts in the last 2 years. If you want to talk about KiSS I think the DeviantArt club is the right place for that - or at least they should be able to tell you where the party is. : ) Yup, I still plan to re-upload my old dolls but in the meantime my home computer broke and currently I neither know where I put the backup nor do I have working KiSS software for screenies. I'll get to it once I faced the other heaps of work in front of me. ^,~Dec 24, 2012
Shuichi joined into the fun and sent two dolls for your enjoyment. Merry Xmas! My apologies if the website is sometimes awfully slow at the moment. One of the server's harddrives broke and the provider couldn't replace it yet, so the remaining disk sometimes goes into a crawl when looking for its partner. I'm in the process of cleaning up the harddrives in my own pc whenever time allows and I'm going to upload the original version of my old dolls and a few cancelled betas in the near future before I archive everything to an external disk. I doubt they'll get stolen much these days and that will at least liven up the place a bit. :)April 09, 2012
Today my online comic Seekers celebrates its 9th anniversary. Since my team members are avid KiSS fans there are 3 new Seekers themed dolls today. Two are solely by me (eph), the other one is a collab between me and the comic team.
Please note they are all labeled as betas. Usually I don't upload my demo versions here but they didn't fit my comic website anymore and most people wouldn't find them on the forum. Each doll has a ton of items and snap-to and is thus playable. Have fun - and read my comic! : )March 26, 2012
Note to artists: Yesterday we did neccessary maintenance on the server but only found out today that the mail server wasn't working correctly. So if you sent me a new doll/basedoll on Saturday/Sunday/today please re-send it as it got lost. Sorry about the inconvenience.March 20, 2012
Devilgirl sent two new dolls, Marry Me and Miku Hatsune.
I would have fixed the broken link for her first doll sooner if someone had told me about it. Honestly! For realz!February 27, 2012
Devilgirl makes her entrance with an original character named Regex!February 08, 2012
Jason sent his new self portrait doll. Thanks, Jason!September 06, 2011
It's been almost a year since the last update so it's unlikely that someone sends a doll just now, but just to be sure I'll leave a move note too: ^^
My husband and me are in the middle of moving to a new flat and I have very limited computer time until early November approximately. If you send a doll or basedoll and don't get a reply please don't worry - I'll upload it once things have settled down. Thanks! : )November 25, 2010
Added a link to Mimi B.'s KiSS tutorial to the tutorial section.November 15, 2010

Belated Happy New Year, everybody!
New artist Marnerus joined and sent two dolls, one of Hinagiku (Wedding Peach) and one of Tripod (101 Dalmatians).November 24, 2009
I (eph) republished an updated Sailor Moon doll.November 10, 2009
There are two new original character dolls, one from Ghostewolf and one from Fox Lee.
Fox has also updated all of her bases and there are 2 new basedolls from her.August 12, 2009
Seems like some people are back from summer vacation!
Jeffco has 2 new original character dolls for you and Orange KiSS joined the party with 3 original characters too. Enjoy!June 10, 2009
Another new doll: Sailor Jupiter by eph.June 09, 2009
One new doll: Chibi Isabeau Extended Version can be found in original characters, by eph. For a short while I sent this doll to donators as a thank-you, but it became too much of a hassle due to filesize and other factors. The idea of locked content for supporters always rubbed me the wrong way, anyway, and donators always stated that their reward is the existance of the KiSS Cafe, not some shiny extra. So now the doll is free for all. Huzzah!May 26, 2009
Jeffco gives you 2 new male original characters (Aamir and Claude v.2), and JohnnyNothing makes an entry with 4 male basedolls.April 09, 2009
Some hours late, gomen ne! Lady Mana~chan makes her entrance to the KiSS world with Aoko, an original character.April 06, 2009
There are two new dolls, Momo (Peach Girl) from Marekat (previously MK) and Sailor Scout Creator from eph. Bah, now it took me so long to get my doll sorted through that I can't get the whole update finished! Please come back on Wednesday for the rest!March 20, 2009
The server move is completed!
I'm sorry for the long downtime, both hosts tried their best to make things complicated (I even lost my url by hair's breadth!) and additionally even the mail server at the university ate the customer service replies. Grrrr.
Anyway, now the KiSS Cafe is back online!
The new server runs on php5, so I had to make changes to the website code to get it to run. If I missed something and you run into something that's sorted backwards, or if any files or pictures were broken during the move, please let me know by email.
I have 2 dolls waiting for upload (and might finish one of my own) but have to fix all of my other websites first, so please give me some days to get everything back on track.
Thanks for your patience! :)February 19, 2009
I thank everyone who has donated so far. As the new server takes way longer to be set up than expected I'm changing the server donation meter to 45 Euro, because I won't have to pay for more than half of February at this rate. : )
UPDATE: The donation goal was reached!. Thanks to all supporters!February 17, 2009
We will move to a new server in early March, so if the page doesn't come up please try again, we're not closing! : ) You know that I pay 30 Euro a month for this server out of my own pocket, sometimes aided by voluntary supporters. (Last year donators helped me with 10% of the server costs, which was a new record, and I deeply appreciate your generosity!)
This once I ask for your help. The move means 60 Euro extra costs for me. And for several reasons this is a lot of money for us right now. If some of you can spare 2$ or more to help secure the future of the KiSS Cafe, I'd be very thankful.
UPDATE: The donation meter is currently at 40/60 Euro. Thanks to all supporters! To be honest, until now there was a big danger of me closing next year because my current server is very old and a new one usually costs twice as much - which I could never afford to pay for by myself.
This great deal will secure the KC and all other websites on the server for (hopefully) several years and at the same time make the page more reliable, because the new server can handle way more visitors.December 22, 2008
There's a bunch of new dolls to keep you busy on Christmas:
"Ghost of Christmas yet to come" and Lola by Jeffco, "Guess the obscure Sailor Moon character" by Circle, Faith by MK and Estrella by eph.
There are also 4 new basedolls by MK. Furthermore, MK asked me to draw your attention to a KiSS Contest hosted by Holliness at Deviant Art:
It's intended for newcomers and people who want to learn how to make KiSS dolls, so if you're interested hop over. Merry Christmas, everyone, and a happy new year! Special thanks go to the donators who showed support!
Important: If anyone sent me something that's not up yet it got lost in the spam. Please re-send in that case, thank you!November 04, 2008
