[16.6.2013]

Last weekend I went to a doll event, called Dolliverse. I have been there before for several times, and also helped as a volunteer a few times. I have missed this event twice (I think), so I wanted to go again this time. As always I went there with my love, who also shares a love for these dolls (Ball jointed dolls). I knew some people that I know were also going to the event, so I was looking forward of seeing them again. I decided to wear a more fancy outfit this time, instead of wearing a t-shirt and some plain pants.

What is BJD?

What is BJD?
A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. In contemporary usage when referring to modern dolls, and particularly when using the acronyms BJD or ABJD, it usually refers to modern Asian ball-jointed dolls.These are cast in polyurethane synthetic resin, a hard, dense plastic, and the parts strung together with a thick elastic. They are predominantly produced in Japan, South Korea and China. The BJD style has been described as both realistic and influenced by anime.They commonly range in size from about 60 centimetres (24 in) for the larger dolls, 40 cm (16 in) for the mini dolls, and all the way down to 10 cm (4 in) or so for the tiniest of the tiny BJDs. BJDs are primarily intended for adult collectors and customizers. They are made to be easy to customize, by painting, changing the eyes and wig, and so forth.

I myself have a collection of 8 bjd dolls, in the sizes MSD and SD. I think it’s a wonderfull hobby. It makes you very creative in my opinion. You can do alot of things with them! The BJD hobby includes various different ‘side-hobbies’ such as painting, customizing, sculpting, photography, writing and more. You name it, the possibilities are endless!
