Recasts. I hate this topic. It's truly one of the more poisons thorns in the BJD hobby... it's right up with with the confession blog on Tumblr for me anyway...
**.FIRST LET ME SAY THIS.**
Just because you own a recast, have bought one, whatever... it doesn't mean I hate you. You could be a complete bad ass for all I know. But I don't. I don't know you, all I know is the action you are doing. I'm not hating you, I'm hating what you're doing to my hobby.
I feel as though I've been seeing a lot of crap flying around about the topic... and it's just that... a lot crap. Seriously, I get people have their passionate sides, I personally am against recasts, but no matter if you are for or against them... if you're going to argue something, use your fucking brain. Don't just blurt out the first things you can think of to defend your point. You look stupid. That being said... here are mine.
Obistu FAQI was ridiculously shocked at how well Littlebit was recieved, but I suppose she is an anime doll and is supaa kawaiiiii~~~ But still, I was pretty damned surprised. 500 faves overnight? x.x I haven't had that kind of reception in yonks! And so many lovely comments! So thankyou!!Obistu FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I thought I'd link where I got her and some stuff about her kind. This focuses on the 21-23 bodies and the 11-23cm heads (these heads are all the same size).

A brief history of FellaWe all know Fella. If you have been a member of deviantArt for at least 1 day it's quite probable you've encountered him at least once, he's everywhere! And this shouldn't come as a surprise, he's dA's mascot after all! But how much do you know about him? Let's take a look at a Brief History of deviantART's mascot.A brief history of Fella2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fella was brought to life thanks to switched, who designed him back in April 2001 for a mascot contest.
Back then he didn't look exactly as we know him today, his figure was a lot more basic and circular and his expression wasn't as human as we're used to today. However his main features remain, his mischievous look and his colors, most probably based on the site layout's at the time

We give dolls to daughters that they might practice mothering and nurturing. But dolls often become surrogates for female angst and little girl social clique wars. Dolls can empower fantasies of future romance, or become twisted into voodoo charms by a desire for vengeance. As society becomes more reflective on childhood in our personal life growth, so too have artists developed the meanings of dolls along myriad lines of psychic inquiry.
European dolls were at first made to represent adults. It wasn't until the 1850’s that childlike dolls appeared.

What's a BJD?
It's short for Ball Jointed Doll.
Where can I find out more about BJD's?
Den of Angels is the biggest BJD forum in the world.
If you're from the Philippines like me, check out ManikaManila.
Did you make these dolls?
NO I did NOT make them. I bought them online, from their respective doll companies which I have linked to below.
How many dolls do you have and who are they?
I have twelve at the moment. Here they are.

I've been pretty much avoiding dA for the past few months (except occasionally posting a few things) because I didn't want to get distracted from school work by all the awesome things on here but now I can get back to making my webcomics without schoolwork in the way Thank you all for the support during my college years I've been on dA since I was 12 years old and I can hardly believe I'm 21 now.

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips

So here's the story:
Apparently a week or so ago, our school's broadcasting team sent index cards to every student on campus asking them to write down a personal secret (NO NAMES!). I didn't take part in this activity as I was in a clinical setting.
Today, we walked into school to discover the main-hall window. In the center was a twitter-like "post" asking the students what their secret was, with about 100 of the index cards taped around it.
Most of them were depressing (i.e. 'I was disowned.' 'I watched my grandmother die.' etc.) and some were happy.
I was taken by a simple card that read "I am gay."
I felt the need to reach out to this person, but as there were no names on the index cards, that would be impossible.
During lunch, I got a sticky-note and wrote the message:
"PRIDE is not a sin in love."
and stuck it on the index card.
Class ended and as I walked to my next class, I passed by the window.
Love to hear your opinion!The art of storytelling is as boundless and diverse as the stories themselves. With the rise of the digital age and instant communication, story creators can now receive immediate feedback from the audiences. Sometimes, the audience will give critiques and demand changes to the story. Those of you in the gaming community will be familiar with the outrage over Mass Effect 3's ending, and those who love TMNT will know about the dissatisfaction over changing turtles to aliens. If so many people dislike something, should the creators reflect on the audience's critiques and make the necessary changes to please them, or stick to their original vision?Love to hear your opinion!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I actually made doll pictures today... And I actually liked several... It's a miracle.
I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who took the effort to reply to my stupid poll. I'm sorry I didn't reply to you, but I assure you I've read all of them.
What actually shook me out of it were the few comments of people who said that I had to think of them when I was going to sell my dolls. For some reason that creeped the hell out of me and my first inner reaction was "NO! You're not touching my boys!" So that clearly showed me that the love isn't gone yet.
I just have to do my best to not set the bar as high for myself and just enjoy my dolls. This hobby is meant to have fun with, right?
