Hi there! Nice to have you.

I’ve been a bad girl and ordered far too many dolls.  I got away with (self-imposed) community service…
Just kidding. The community section is all about other people in the hobby. Have fun exploring!

Badge fun

ProArtist ribbon Instagram

BJD artist solidarity ribbon

The PRO artist banners were the first I made. The statement needed a bit more design than the usual “no smoking sign look” to carry some weight. That’s why I played around and came up with the ball jointed solidarity ribbon.

If you share the opinion, share the banners! You can use them on your site or blog, on Instagram, where ever you like.

Community badges

What kind of doll lover are you? There might be just the badge for you..

The Community badges are a fun project. I thought it would be cool to create badges for us doll enthusiasts. Subscribers will get notified of new badge-posts automatically. There will be more!

Where to buy legit dolls

Of course most in our small community already know. But just in case you stumbled upon this blog and are new to the world of BJD: Apart from reliable second hand private sellers legit dolls can usually only be ordered from the company directly.  New Iplehouse dolls offered on ebay or Amazon are illegal recasts. They are banned from DOA and many discussion groups. See Iplehouse statement on illegal recasts. 

Iplehouse and Raccoondoll

Both Iplehouse and Raccoondoll are South Korean companies.

A dolly journey through the web

This hobby would not be possible without the internet, and it would be a lot less fun without pictures, inspiration and a lot of people who put effort and skill into their work and share the results. There’s so much talent out there that it’s hard to pick favorites. 

But of course everyone does. I follow a lot of blogs, but I am not big on commenting. But there are a lot of artists I admire and flickr accounts I frequently visit. Even if some of them have not been updated in a while.

Featured blogs

As the resin world turns

Balljointedwoman is not only a blogger friend but a queen of the crochet hook. There's always something new to discover, a new doll, a storyline, a sewing project.

My dolly adventures

Musume writes about a lot of things, but what makes her blog unique are her monthly interviews with artists in the hobby. Check out her impressive list of interviews.

Antique Lilac

Martha Boers perfected the art of doll costuming. Her picture galleries are just awe-inspiring, and her patterns have probably been tried by every aspiring doll costumer.

Doll artists

Some of the doll artists I had on my list have become quite popular since I postet the first “dolly journey” in 2016. Amadiz, Natalia Loseva or Youpla for example. Some have found other fields of activity. I hope the doll artists in the following list keep doing what they are doing: creating wonderful little people. 
All the pictures are taken from public accounts of the respective doll artists.
