BJD Collectors - 04-11-2007, 12:47 PM

Does anyone own one / a few
BJDs??
Or has anyone heard of them? you may know them
under the term (actually a brand) Dollfie.

I have a Dream of Doll Lahoo named Kazuya.
He is a prince ^_^ its nice to take him to places.

Considering this forum is mostly about games, i decided to post this!

BJDs are Ball Jointed Dolls that come in a variety of sizes. They are usually
all anatomically correct and life like or all bishounen/bishoujo. ^_^

The common sizes for 1/3 dolls are (for guys) 60cm-70cm and (for girls) 55cm-62cm. And there also are 1/4 size and 1/5-6 size dolls ranging at 15cm-45cm tall!! so cute, ne?

Although, because they are nice dolls....they also come with a nice price.
I have (ok, well my parents have) spent at least £1000 so far ....yes, so far. on my BJD. But they make great companions and are lovely to have around.

There are different types of owners though. Active owners - who take their dolls out and about, and treat them like people almost (like me) and Passive owners - who prefer to have the BJDs as ornaments, and have one-two outfits for them, and just collect them and leave them on shelves or display stands.

I prefer being an Active owner, because they really seem alive sometimes.
If anyone has seen Ihnyongesa... dont be put off. and you can imagine how much that set would have cost in the foyer. with all the dolls and clothes/accessories on each of them. (most sets of clothes cost between $100-250!*sometimes not inc. shoes!)I believe the do form souls at some point, if you really cherish them.

Anyway, here is Kazuya Young-so Lim (my doll)

Kazuya cost (with makeup option and no clothes) $700.

They are alot of money but are briliant in every way! ^-^

There are usually workshops at cons (more so in america) on how to look after them and re-string them. I know (ok i think) a company like Bishounen house, did a casting demonstration or info-shop at an american con.

Sakurasan, the $700~ included shipping to the UK aswell. of course, the price of the doll and shipping depends on the weight an size of the doll. and also if you ordered anything else with it.
They usually mark them as 'Gifts' so you dont have to pay import tax!!! hahaha it would be HELL if you did. =_=''- like double the price.

It looks like this thread has been dead for a while, but maybe I can revive it? ^^ <3

I recently got my first SD. She's so pretty~ I hope to get my 2nd soon <3 My model is Volks Sara. I didn't change her hair, but I bought her the most beautiful Lolita dress.

Here's a few pictures:







(I know, the boots and stockings are off for a Lolita, but I thought it gave it a nice 'punk' kick XD <3)

I really wish I owned BJDs, they are so very beautiful!
As I am really poor I am trying to make my own BJD, but it's a bit hard and I'm not that good at sculpting. XD
Thank you for sharing your pictures

That Volks Sara doll has such a pretty dress!

So you guys do not do the makeup on your dolls yourself by the way?
I've heard of people using airbrushes to put makeup on them, but those are sooo expensive o.o

That was my problem for so long, I just recently got some extra money to buy her and her soon to be brother~ I can't wait to get him (^^)/

Aww, thank you. It was Volks's last one of that dress in blue. I loved it so much I requested the guy to take it off the doll that was wearing it. haha

Oh, no no. I'm too scared to try that stuff myself. I would make her look like a clown. haha
