Orders for Blip and Delta(with cat ears) will open up afternoon!
That is all.
Noah, there is no failure at being you. Period. Things are rarely simple when you fall outside the lines, but so long as you live and keep your head up, you win. Hell, even if you turned around and lived as a woman. Or presented female and remained a man in your heart. Or some happy mix anywhere on the playing field. Wherever you end up in your travels, you remain yourself and you have support. I come by this confidence the hard way, so I can promise it’s true.
While articulated has handled her robust casting fiasco with utmost grace and strength, cicadasoup is a pathetic shit nugget who doesnt answer messages of support and zero updates. Even to her customers.
Nope. Cicadasoup sold off her…
Reblogged for the word "wondernugget".
I will also pipe in that I also found entire ordeal (including efforts to get everyone reimbursed) was both public and detailed. Cicadasoup has acted with complete honesty.
Fusilli, my hand made head.
Oh she’s done! I looked at your blog ages ago and you were sculpting in the bathroom, trying to get enough light. She’s so pretty!
She’s not quite done, though. There is another version of her head, a sister cast to the pictured one, that is being refined (still in the bathroom). Then there is the body to conquer. That is going to be a nightmare as she can’t pose worth beans at the moment.
international cut your hair like your icon day how screwed are you
well, robots don’t have hair so… looks like i’m gonna be growing some metal!! booyah!!
Shy technically has hair… so I guess I need to try and put my dreads back in?
My icon is me in a respirator. My hair is already like that.
Are there any nonbinary people in this hobby? I feel so alone.
Really? Here, with this group, you have to ask? I feel horrible that you believed yourself to be alone, very little is more terrifying, but look around you. We are everywhere in this hobby.
Why do all boy dolls have a small penises? I have a big package and I want my dolls to have big packages too!
If Finland can issue a Tom of Finland stamp, then surely somebody can create a Tom of Finland-esque bjd. (See also: Billy doll.) Clearly we need more gay men designing dolls!
Finland issued a Tom of Finland stamp? Why am I always late for these parties???
I’ve found I just can’t bond with dolls I don’t have to do face ups or any sort of clean up/maintenance/restoration on. Something about the process of that work is what connects us. But I have 3 that need no work and already have beautiful face ups… So they just sit there….

If I didn’t paint the doll, the doll is not “mine”. I have learned not to buy dolls with nice face-ups, as they will get wiped.
i am going to make my own bjd from scratch because i want one that is all my own- but im so scared it will turn out badly and dishearten me. i hope that i can do good.

Oh, Anon! I feel this to the very core of my being. I have been working on original projects since 2007 and have finished none of them. The most recent is very close (her head is, anyway), but even she has been under the Exacto for about two years (her body is a fiddly mess). I procrastinate because I am afraid of being judged. While she is a work in progress I can dismiss her flaws with a, “She’s not done.” Once she is done, I loose that curtain to hide behind.
That said, it’s such and exciting journey! And The Joint is full of wonderful, encouraging people. I strongly encourage anyone that wants to try to start. Maybe you and I will “meet” elsewhere and encourage each other to greatness????
How do you lose a BJD in your own house? Do you have that many dolls, or are you that careless or is your house that big of a mess? I have many dolls and I cannot imagine ever losing one for more than maybe 5 minutes at the most.

Pieces and parts have gone missing from time to time(magnetic parts, wigs, we lost a headcap for awhile), things have been places in the wrong boxes and when you move 80+ dolls from one house to another… It gets a little hectic. Not speaking for whoever Anon is complaining about, but I have experienced “losing” a doll lol One was a yo that had been placed in another bag after coming home from a meet and after not unpacking them for a bit(we’re both so busy sometimes), I had actually thought I misplaced him… Cue bouts of panic, but he was quickly found under a SD in my roommates doll bag.
I’ve lost dolls and heads. Usually they are misplaced after meetups. Though, I was going crazy when I lost my Hound’s head in the move. He was in plain sight in my very dark closet where I had stashed some dolls until I figured out our new lighting situation and furniture placement. Shit happens. Not everybody is a slob. It is easy to misplace things when there is a lot of other things going on. It isn’t like it is a living creature though. They won’t starve to death under the bed or in a closet if we forget about them for a while.
The last time I moved I lost a tiny for two months. I had put her in a hard glasses case to keep her safe and that case was packed and no one remembered into what box it had gone.Recently I misplaced another tiny. She was in a bag after an overnight craft meet. That bag tumbled into my fabric scrap bin and was covered over (I assume from my unpacking from that event).
This week I’m working on a doll that was vandalized and damaged. His ears have been broken and there were deep gauges in his face. So far, they’re mostly sanded out and his ears are shaped into slightly more discrete elf points. Once I have him smoothed out to my satisfaction, he’ll get a new faceup that incorporates his new battle damage! I’ll also be blushing his body.
The boy’s down, but definitely not out!
He is a Ziluo under there! I’d seen him on the tag and I always wondered.
