The MOST Frequently Asked Questions
• What are these things called and what are they?
They are called Ball-Jointed Dolls (BJD) or Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls (ABJD), They're high quality resin dolls strung with elastic. They can hold various poses including free standing due to the way they are built.
They are highly customizable in just about everything; they use wigs which can be switched out easily, their heads open to change eyes, even the paint on their face can be removed and repainted with general ease.
Quite a few companies even have "option parts" like extra hands, feet, heads (sleeping/dreaming), and even large body parts like busts.
Or if you feel really ambitious, you can sand and carve away to change them how you'd like. For example I've heavil

Frequently Asked Questions
Now listen up, I learned all of this from reading tutorials on the internet, so there's no reason why you shouldn't do the same! That's what you do when you want to learn a new skill, you read about it! So instead of being asked, here is some reading to do. Now READ IT!! Also, tutorials for BJD face ups apply to plastic/vinyl dolls most of the time, so you can read about both of them.

Doll and Wig FAQWhat are these dolls?Doll and Wig FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The dolls you see in the pages of my gallery are known as ball-jointed-dolls or BJD. They are made from a urethane- resin with articulated joints and can therefore pose, making them fantastic photography subjects. They come in a wide variety of sizes, from tiny tiny dolls (less than 10cm) up to gigantic (90cm) and can be completely customized to be one of a kind. This is the appeal for me, taking a blank canvas and turning it into something unique! You can buy eyes, wigs, clothes, shoes, props and more to help you make your doll individual. They are all hand-painted and most companies will let you order your doll with a faceup, however I prefer to commission artists to bring out the best qualities in the doll and to have them more suited to my characters. My dolls are all completely one of a kind so you can't just buy them the way they are off the shelf. However, there are numerous companies out there who will have something out there for you.

I'm sure many active people in the community are already aware of the fact that there has been a sudden and shocking influx of recast dolls.
recently received a doll that she bought on the secondary market. To her horror, it arrived with some irregularities and soon identified it as a recast head.
Please be extra cautious when purchasing second hand dolls (particularly Volks!) and always get advice if you are unsure. The members of the Volks appreciation thread on DoA were most helpful and I'm sure they would be willing to lend their educated eyes to you.
If you are hunting for Volks dolls, here are a few tips for when you are looking on the secondary market;
(This may apply to other companies dolls too but I am mainly focussing on volks here.)
1) Always ask for the code engraved in the plate on the back of the head.
- While this won't protect you from all recasts (some have been known to replicate them) it will definitely help as recasters o

How you incorporate these items around the theme of love is up to you!
Of course, you may use more than the objects above, but all three of those objects must appear. Feel free to create whatever inspires you! Maybe someone is creating a model tree with olive-colored leaves in a bottle to give to his love. Or, maybe two olives are sitting in a tree, sipping wine from a bottle. Whatever your mind creates, we want to see it!

Now this game has supposable been sent to several publishers and was rejected quite a few times. When a game gets rejected it's probably because there is something the publishers don't approve of. Maybe the theme it's having or the extreme content shown in the game isn't suitable to the publisher. No, none of those reasons are why this game got rejected by several different people. The reason this game got rejected so many times is because a

This entry is going to be dedicated to FRIENDLY Recast BJD Information – The goal is to provide non-bias information for the purpose to educate and create recast awareness NOT to create hostility. Spreading knowledge is better than spreading hate – and this topic has far too much hate already.

We Are The Others is a song by the band Delain, inspired by the tragic murder of Sophie Lancaster. Her and her boyfriend were attacked, seemingly for no other reason than that they dressed differently. The lead singer of Delain, Charlotte said:
"I remember when I first heard about it … it wasn’t on Dutch news, I just heard about it through Internet networks and the goth scene …there was this movie made about it, a short film of about four minutes. I saw it, and I just cried. It’s so incredibly sad! After seeing the movie, I didn’t really DO anything with it until we were working on “We Are The Others.” But the basic idea of the lyrics was there. It was

I feel like I'm sexist towards my own genderLike, I hate women. I can't stand women who are girly. I can't stand female OCs. I can't stand slutty girls. I can't stand girls who wear make-up. I can't stand girls who wear booty shorts and a tank-top out in public and think they're all that. I can't stand OCs who dress with their navel showing or with a really short mini-skirt or with big boobs. I think of most of them as Mary-Sues because a lot of them are Mary-Sues. I can't stand it. It drives me NUTS. I feel really hypocritical about it, too because I am a female. Well, on the outside, I'm a female. But seriously. Panties and bras gross me out. I hate wearing panties and bras, but I have to wear a bra because my boobs are too big not to wear one v.v And I really need to get some boy shorts underwear...
