Doll Changes Meme by hiritai Doll Changes Meme by hiritai
Seems I can do anything without being weird. I used the tablet because it was quicker and so that means you have to suffer my silliness. ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.


I HAVE SO MANY DOLLS NOW. I had just four, like, a month ago. And there's more to come! x.x But yay!

Unless I like a doll for it's default look, I try to get as far away from the company photos as possible. I also like modding bits of them I've found, so there's just something different about them that makes them mine.

I think the most shocking one is obviously Hex. He's actually and After School version but the company photos don't show his face well so I used the first ST pics.

God, Fate looks so orange.

Hope you enjoy this silly thingie.

Fate use to be blue?!
Your dolls transformations are amazing! I really admire all the work you put into them to make them look like your characters. Alot of these you can't even tell what they use to be, their just simply, your characters, and that's really awesome!! Such beautiful faceups and everything. :D
I can't wait to see the new dolls and what you do with them!! X3

Nah, it was only a few days ago lol. I got one for cheap... ish... because the owner had tried to mod him and then gave up. I can't even think of him as one, it's like he's mutated XD they are so pretty though, aren't they? Part of me wishes I'd bought one without all these mods I had to fix, so that I could send him to Poppy-like artists and flaunt my volksypoo, but the bigger part is excited because that's what makes him special. And pink :E

GURRRL! You are preaching to the choir! XD *hugs* I love Shirou madly and I was surprised when I got mine for rather cheap! I think total, I got him for $795, but that was just his head and body -- nothing else included. But it was still awesome!

And hey, there's always that delicious tan, SD17 Shirou. ;D But god, Poppy faceups are tremendous. It still blows my mind that I own a doll with one.

PINK FLOOOOOFY SHIROU. And yay I see a bigger picture of him uploaded! I have to go see!

Man that is cheap D: I got mine for $350 for just his mangy head, which is pretty good considering how much I love how he turned out. And lol, It was your zombie tachibana (he was the zombie boy right? Or am I remembering life wrong? XD) that got me in consistent love with them, and kind of changed my mine about Volks. Made me realise there was more to be done than shimmer and feathery lashes lol. I remember thinking something along the lines of "shit she wiped off a volksup and made it better!"

Having said that, my shimmery feathery lashed Poppyface is my golden boy and it's always going to be hell trying to top that faceup. It's your Yukinojo Poppy did, isn't it? Man, she just changes dolls, he looks so freaking different to any other joe I've seen. I catch myself staring at the picture wondering wtf the doll is and then scrolling down to the artist comment and feeling dumb.

AND ALSO I BOUGHT AN AMELIA FOR TO BE AN AMELIA BOY. That shit, unlike the Shiro, were not at all in any way cheap. Cost me 3 and a half weeks of half my allowance, plus doll sales, BUT UGH SO WORTH IT. Anna will have a body, Hayden will have to shelf it, and there will be a glorious Amelia SD17 man in the house at long last. Andd ALL HAIL THE VOLKS. IT'S DONE. I'm gone.

(what body is Rooster on btw? I'd check but my net is so slow it hurts)

Hey, it's no trouble ^^ I'm glad you like them! It's hard for me to pick favourites these days, I just keep getting dolls that I adore XD

the dolls are Ball Jointed Dolls, or BJDs. They are made of durable resin, so they're not like china dolls and don't break easily. they are held together with elastic that runs down from the head to the feet, with another peice going from one hand to the other through the chest, kind of like a cross. They are bald, and you give them hair by choosing a wig for them. There are so many wigs that you can litterally give your doll whatever hairstyle in whatever colour you like. The head has a cap on the back of it which is removeable, and allows you to remove and change their eyes, which can wither be acrylic, glass (my favourite) or the more expensive (but generally prettier) urethane. these can all be found in basically every BJD site (I'll get to those later). You can dress them in whatever you want, and there are SO many clothing stores and shoe stores with accesories like jewelery and watches, hats etc. You can buy mini props for them and even furniture. This hobby is enormous, you will have no idea and it will be a bit daunting, but it's worth it lol.

Here is a website that lists the sites you can get them from as there are SO many lol. My favourites (google these if they aren't in the list)are Migidoll (where I got Fate), Iplehouse (where I got Anna and Dervish, though Dervish is a girls head that put on a boy body) Soom, Supiadoll, Elfdoll, Crobidoll, and I also like Mint on Card, who are not a direct site but a dealer, and stock all sorts of companies dolls. A lot of the stores above also offer layaway. That's actually how I manage to buy so many. Dollmore is a great site for cheap clothes and wigs/shoes/eyes/clothes etc to get you started. Leekeworld make wigs and have a huge variety. I've also begun shopping on sites like Y!J Auctions, which is a Japanese ebay sort of thing, and TaoBao, which is a Chinese shopping site. (Be careful on TaoBao as there are recasts. people sell illegal copies of dolls for cheap. It's highly immoral and looked down upon, and in no way as rewarding as having a genuine doll who has been carefully made with love and attention.) There are, however, super cheap wigs, eyes, clothes and shoes on there. I mean really cheap too, like $3 for a pair of eyes that cost upwards of $20 on other sites, and wigs for $10 that cost $30 elsewhere. I buy through shopping services, if you ever want help with taobao let me know, I'm still learning Y!J.

There might be a UK site that sells dolls locally but I'm not sure sorry!


Also, denofangels.com is the international and largest Ball Jointed Doll (or BJD, is what the're called) fourm. If you need an invite to register just note me and I can give you one. I'm not registration is open at this point.

They are expensive, but there are ball jointed dolls that are less so, and a lot of people will buy a cheaper doll before taking the leap to buy one of the more expensive dolls. Cheaper dolls aren't a bad thing, they're still beautiful and offer the same things as the more expensive dolls. There is nothing wrong with taking baby steps :)

Dolls can come either blank for you to paint, or you can pay a bit more (usually $30-$60) to have them painted by the company. The makeup, lips, eyebrows, blushing etc, is called a faceup. I paint my dolls using acrylic paint and sharp water colour pencils, and I do the shading and such with chalk pastels. There are so many tutorials on how to paint the dolls, I suggest Andreja, <a href=[link]">here she is on youtube. She's a professional artist and is so talented. Her technique is very similar to mine, only I don't have an airbrush. I use chalk pastels instead.
Here are some more tutorials. Some of them should list materials. The most important things are: Don't use oil based products on you doll as it will stain and eat away the resin. Always seal before a faceup and after. This will prevent staining, and the end coat prevent the faceup from coming off. the best sealers are Mr Super Clearo/MSC, and Volks Zoukimura Finishing Spray (I think I spelled that wrong lol) You can also use Testors Dullcote (the spray not the paint on version) but it's not as good. It is definitely a good option, but it does tend to pick up dirt a bit and has a different texture than MSC. To get a faceup off, never use acetone. Ignore people who say it works, as some resins will melt if you put it on them, so don't take the chance on any resin, just in case. Just use rubbing alcohol, or you can go to a hardware story and get pure alcohol. that will get a faceup off no trouble.

This is a good care list too and have some great tips:

Anyway, sorry if that's all a bit much but I tend to ramble! BJDs are a great hobby, and it's so rewarding to have a doll that you've painted and put together (I mean put the eyes and wig on and dress them lol, most come assembled so don't worry)

And on a scale of 1 to 10 how much painting skill do you think a person would need to do a decent faceup? (somewhat as amazing as yours xD)

hiritai Featured By Owner May 3, 2012
Thankyou very much :) I used jump rings for the rings, they're usually used for jewelery, and I cut the ends off pins for the studs. I glued them on with tacky glue, and but pva would work well too. I wouldn't used super glue as it's too hard and permanent and if you needed to do the faceup again, which is guaranteed lol, it'd be near impossible to get off without sanding.

As for the painting lol, I seriously don't have much skill, talent, or whatever. I am not an incredible painter or drawer. I have have just done a shitload of faceup. I stared off terrible. Freaking terrible. There is a learning curve with faceup, but once you learn the tools and techniques it's much easier. Of course people with painting and drawing skills generally have a better chance of being good on turn one, but that isn't always the case.. Don't work yourself up to it, and just do it. Practice, offer free faceup, watch Andreyas tutorials on YouTube if you haven't already, she's nicolles dreams on there I think, just Google it. Very helpful to watch people as it gives you a first hand look at the techniques they use.

Just do it. I have no real painting skill. I in fact have probably got better at painting and drawing because I do faceup lol. Everyone starts at the bottom in some way. Looking at your gallery you have more skills than me, and so go for it dude, or I will slap you with a self doubt stick until it breaks. Nicely, but of course.

I hope that helps a bit. The words, the not the slapping. Thanks again for you compliment, and your comment in general ^^
