Ball-Jointed Dolls

This is a hobby in which I am still learning.

I spent eight to ten years looking and learning about Ball-Jointed Dolls before I was able to afford one.  They are made from high-quality resin, can be customized in almost every imaginable way, and come in many sizes, shapes, styles, and ages.  I have ten dolls, seven of which are about a foot and a half tall, one is just slightly smaller, and the last two are about three inches in height.  One has medium-dark skin, one has blue-grey skin, one has pale lilac skin, four others have pale but realistic skin, and the last two are almost paper white.  Two of them come from a company called Iplehouse, which specializes in realistic sculpts, three from a company called Soom, two are from a company called Fairyland, one is from a small company called Magic Mirror, and two are from Peaks Wood.  One of them I bought ‘pre-owned’ from the Den of Angels marketplace, but all the others I bought new directly from the companies which made them.

If you are interested to know more about my BJDs, I have started a separate blog to tell their story here:
