do the cheap bjd companies make quality dolls? (e.g. resinsoul, doll leaves, etc) they're so cheap it makes me wonder
>>
>>9315426
very pretty, I'd leave it as is
>>
>>9319441
the answer no one will tell you is: no they do not.
the jointing is usually off, the faces are funky, the bodies are noodly compared to other companies.

the difference is night and day between a cheap chinese doll and a moderately priced to expensive japanese or korean doll. a really nice faceup usually isnt enough to hide the fact it was sculpted on a budget.

Way back in the day one of my friends got a Bobobie sprite. I remember it being a little misshapen, like there were still bumps in the clay when they casted it. I also remember it's limbs were pretty much just tubes. Granted, it looked a lot better than what a lot of western doll sculptors are trying to sell for premium doll prices. Like melonpanmarket or pic related.
>>
Man, I don't understand "leaving the hobby" people. I've had my doll since 2007 and I don't think I'll ever get rid of him. I have long periods of time where I'll lose interest but I always go back.
>>
>>9319857
Whats difficult to understand? I mean with any hobby (specially those who can be costly) its not too surprising people could quit...


I mean in my experience it seems ppl quit because it becomes to expensive, they got themseves in debt,lost their job, realize it was a hyperfixation and it became unhealthy, it became to overwhelming to continue due to drama (fandom or personal), they had kids or got married and well things became priority ( for example my dad was an avid fish hobbyist and kept tropical fish then he had me... and well he had to quit the hobby and sell all his fish and equiptment) and my least favorite their partners/family made them quit.

here's my throwback to my bobobie espree i owned for a few years. only doll i ever sold.
even with my bad faceups on both the bobobie and lusis, you can totally tell which one is a budget doll.

theres no way that "artist" doll is going to sell for that right??

im more annoyed when they need to announce it than if they just do it silently. like dude im not gonna buy your doll when it no longer matters to you if you tank your feedback.

it costs like $4.5k and they may only do a couple a year, but yes the doll pictured is actually a dream FCS doll. unsurprisingly suigintou and shinku are pretty popular for dream FCS

Relistically you get what you pay for, if you are ok paying 500+ for a doll its worth putting your money into. If you are more on the fence the resinsoul/bobobie type of dolls are more up your alley. Theyre good beginner dolls and are great customization fodder, especially since you can get custom resin colors
>>
>>9325008
if you're on the fence im not even sure you should be ordering a $150 doll. i'd rather spend way more on a doll that stole my heart than a mediocre doll that means nothing to me

I can say in my experience, people genuinely don't give a shit. In the era of people taking meticulous photos of their food with an oversized DSLR for instragram posts, it's not even that out of the ordinary anymore -- and more than anything, as far as restaurants go, as long as you pay and are quiet, they're content to leave you to your corner.

I feel Resinsoul in specific has a place for hybriding -- they don't pose the best, but if you have a limited doll in a weird color or want an outlandish resin color, they'll work with you on it.

>>9319441
Resinsoul doesn't pose the best but they are solid finished dolls. Quality with bjd just means they won't crumble and don't have huge bubbles in the resin or thin patches.

It all comes down to visual preference. If you like the look of resinsoul dolls then you'll be fine with their quality.
>>
>>9321730

Resinsoul and boobies are two different tiers of quality IMO and I've personally handled both. Resinsoul look better aesthetically, pose better, and have better overall finishing. Bobobie are chunky, simply sculpted and pretty unposeable.

The actual resin quality of both are decent. I dropped a resinsoul lu on tile floor and it didn't loose a finger or ear so it's durable enough.

"Quality" is mostly subjective with bjd. Unless there are structural problems on the doll or casting issues they're all kind of similar in physical quality. It comes down way more to aesthetic preference.

Not even sandpaper. They didn't even bother to try and cut straight or clean it up at all. Looks like they just stabbed the mouth a few times and went with it

so is the tail attached to the clothes or the doll itself?

>>9344017
You'd think, but this is the community willing to pay $40 for a headcap because the blanks don't come with those, so who knows what they value.

It's a stylized body in shape that was super popular on social media when she released and still is in favor and I think culurs own work was popular enough to sell the doll.
Personally I'm oversaturated with Ery. Culur posts nothing else since... idk 3 years? And most of the Ery's I've seeneither have a Culur face up or one that tries to emulate her style and it's gotten absolutley boring.

24" bjd that aren't smart dolls? All the YouTube my girls watch are hawking the Japanese smart dolls and they're beautiful, but I want something a little less expensive to see if they're really into the 24" bjd dolls. Thoughts on a good fashion doll that can take hard play?

Incidentally they live barbies and have a room full- the barbies come camping with us, so like I said: hard use.

The tallest decent quality fashion doll that i know off (and thats not barbie) at 24" its the Big Amaya Raine from Rainbow High, she is about 100 dollars in the US and from reviews she seems really good she doesnt have 3 point articulation on her elbows but does on her knees and would probably do well for repainting and stuff.

I believe they are available in Target if you wanted to look at her... if not plenty of aliexpress bjd from china to choose from...

You're right to avoid Smart Dolls, but not for the reasons you have in mind. Danny is a massive sperglord and will probably cancel your order for some inane reason. Pic related.
>hard use
The unfortunate fact of the matter is a lot of BJDs, even the vinyl ones, just aren't really good for hard use. The suggestions by the other anons are good, but if your girls are dead set on a BJD style doll, you can search "BJD doll 1/3" on amazon and bunch of cheap chinese dolls come up. There's no where near as nice as more expensive dolls, but most are sub-$100.

There is a 102-page long thread about him on one of the only forums on the web where people openly discuss bad interactions with his company (because he will ban anyone who does so from his store if he can identify them, and cancel any outstanding orders they may have.

He's notorious for banning people from his store for disagreeing with him online, too. Or saying anything negative about him or his dolls, even if it's somewhere where he won't see it like doll forums or facebook groups. There's so many people who've been banned that the moderators of one of the big SmD groups actually told people to stop posting about it because it's taking over other discussions.

They're usually fine from the secondhand market. DDs are great dolls, too. Most of Volks' issues are just this-or-that being hard to find. (You might also like Azone's Iris Collect line, or a vinyl doll from Parabox -- there's several alternatives to SmD!)

>>
>>9369100
That's awful, lootboxes are terrible
>>
>>9369246
Yeah it's really funny because some people who buy them get doll heads or parts, and some people get $300 'worth' of just straight fabric. If you complain, he bans you from his store. He aslso has lootboxes for dolls -- you might get a rare, limited edition, or one-off doll*, or you might get SmD Mirai.

*You will not get anything but SmD Mirai unless you've spent around $10,000 with his company, or you're particularly famous online. Particularly valuable whales get freebies like dolls in discontinued vinyl colors... and most people just get fabric.

It's incredibly transparent, and yet I haven't seen the usual mommy-blogger outrage types getting into a snit over it for some reason. Maybe because he's got a fashion designer for a father.
>>
>>9369318
the outrage is probably less visible because if you ever want more smart doll stuff, you have to keep your mouth shut. Danny is infamous for getting his fans to stalk social media (and doing it himself) and then banning anyone who offends him from buying his stuff -- and his skin is incredibly thin. God help you if you associate too closely with a blacklisted person or, god forbid, buy stuff on their behalf, too.
It's a big part of why the smart doll community is pretty nuts, even by weeb doll collector standards, and also insular.
>>
>>9369868
Pretty much. You have to either post in a way that never identifies you (separate name, never posting doll photos with your complaints, etc) or you have to post in places like this where it's harder for the shoe child to identify you. It's kind of crazy how many hoops you have to jump through to order, too -- the questionnaire you have to fill out,, the invasive questions about other doll collectors living near you, it's all insane. I have a few myself, but they're all secondhand, and I got them before it became apparent how Danny... is. I still like my dolls, but it feels weird posting them, because I don't want people to think I condone the actions of Choo-Choo the Fool.

>>9369070
I'd like to think that the people coming from the fashion doll customising hobby just don't know enough about all his problems to have it influence their decision to support him. And there seem to be more and more.

Much as some people don't like to admit it, we're (BJDs) a realllyy niche hobby, so a lot of our info is hard to find when you're first starting out.
I would gladly tell them not to support him if I could figure out a nice way to do it.

Like if you just google "Smart Doll", there's literally no indication this is anything other than a reputabble company. Which is bullshit, WE know that. But unless that reddit thread about Danny being a shitty human being ends up on the front page of Google searches, no ones gonna know, and no one's gonna care once they've sunk literal thousands of bucks into a company.

>>9377715
Judging by the sculpts you're considering I'm assuming your character is male? If it were me I'd stick with resin since the anime style vinyl boys are usually a pain to acquire. Plus DD boys look really petite and I feel like they would be much harder to find clothes and shoes for, compared to the resin SD17 size that's so common.

There's a thread for anime doll anons over on /jp/ and some of them take them outside for photography on the regular.

We made small-talk about the weather and the amount of weeds growing in the shallows this time of year -- no one seemed at all weirded out or antagonistic about the dolls. If something inspires you to create and pick up a hobby, you should go for it anon. Life's too short to worry about how other people will react to something that doesn't hurt anyone and enriches your life in some way. Find the dolls you like and the scale you want to work in and go for it!

>Is it ok to be into this hobby if you're a man?
Not if you're going to post about wanting to fuck a doll
>Do you make the outfits for your dolls yourself?
Most of them yes

>Is it ok to be into this hobby if you're a man?
Do whatever you want, there are plenty of men in this hobby, and a good majority of sculptors from the more well known companies are male.

>Does anyone like to do historical outfits?
Seems to be popular enough, I only do historical for certain dolls.

>Do you make the outfits for your dolls yourself?
Both, you don't need to learn to sew if you aren't interested. But if you are, all the power to you.
>>
>>9379246
Yeah, but I don't really talk about it outside the internet. I also keep my dolls hidden away because I'm autistic about letting the sun touch them. (Resin yellows in the sun)

>Do you make the outfits for your dolls yourself?
I've been picking up knitting, but it's going to take some time before I can make more than shawls and hats.
I'm too sewingly challenged to work with a sewing machine, but it's still nice to make something your doll can wear.

I got this cameo earring recently, and it's the perfect size to use as a pin for my dolls, but I'm not sure what to do about the fastening method. I could just cut down the back a bit, but I'm not sure. You guys have any ideas?

>Is it ok to be into this hobby if you're a man?
yes. in fact i wish this hobby would be flooded with men so dumb shit like recast drama would not exist
>>
>>9381045
what does this even mean
>>
>>9381180
It means anon should do pony customizations instead of bjd
>>
>>9380315
Clip the post off entirely, and attach it to a small bar pin
>>
>>9381191
What's the best attachment method? Super glue?
>>
>>9381240
Super glue can work, but jewelry glue exists.
This is also a really good resource https://www.thistothat.com/index.shtml

it means we women are petty and fight over stupid shit that man-dominated hobbies don't care about. therefore more men = less drama
>>
>>9381459
Watch out though, don't want to trannies joining in, unless, they're already here...
>>
>>9381459
>men don't fight over petty bullshit
i invite you to work for one week at my local comics shop if you want to be swiftly and brutally disavowed of that notion lmao.
>>
>>9381045
you're an idiot. now that copies of DD have come out (predominantly male audience) they hate them too.
fuck recasts and fuck you.
>>
>>9381321
Love this, so cute
>>
>>9382118
i've seen zero indication of fake dds being BANNED from dd communities or people not even being allowed to talk about them. because men aren't morons. even if they do "hate" them, they aren't like some cliquey high schools girls not letting people participate at all.

take your meds sis. i'm gonna buy my next recast with you in mind

are you one of the crossboarders from the fashion doll general a few threads ago who stated they were gonna drop by and try to stir the pot for shits and giggles? either way, surely you have better hobbies to focus your time and energy into.
>>
>>9383095
if by "daft" you mean "not an immature judgmental bitch" then sure
>>
>>9383140
>not an immature judgmental bitch
Nah senpai that's definitely you
>>
>>9383140
anon who hurt you
>>
>>9383146
thank you for inspiring me to buy more recasts :)) that's all you haters ever succeed in doing
>>
>>9383472
Go ahead man, you're mistaking me for someone else. I don't care if you buy recasts, I just think you're everything you claim not to be. Thanks for proving it so, by the way.
>>
>>9383507
take your meds
>>
>>9383472
You're trying to provoke an argument but genuinely anon I don't care how you spend your money. I literally will not think of you once this thread dies. Enjoy your fifty bootleg minifee chloes, be free.
>>
>>9315426
