Recast ABJD – A Year Later – Would I Still Recommend Purchasing Recast?

I shared my decision to purchase my first recast BJD, about 14 months ago now. I wrote a very in depth, as neutral as I could manage, post about the pros and cons of buying Recast ABJD which you can read here. A year has passed now since my first recast dolls arrived, and I have bought many other Recast BJD since then.   View this post on Instagram   My new #recastbjd #recastminifee #minifeesarang #minifee #sarang #recastfriendly #abjd #bjd #doll from #chinabjd. A post shared by jenilee (@xenokitten) on Jul 12, 2019 at 5:04pm PDT I make all of my recast purchases from Chinabjd on Aliexpress and would recommend them to anyone looking to own a recast ABJD. I have over 20 legit dolls, and a handful (b

Curvy Girls Dolls Kickstarter for Plus Sized Balljoint Doll – Get the doll for just a $25 pledge!

Hey please check out this kickstarter for a plus size balljoint doll. It's 11 inches tall, so it's tiny. About the height of a Barbie. But look at its voluptuous body. Barbie ain't got curves like this girl :) The doll is jointed. Yes, there are Barbies these days who are jointed too. But this doll improves on that joint system by special ankle joints that allow the doll to wear ANY style of shoes, from flats to high heels, and anything in between. The dolls were designed by a mother of an interracial family who wanted dolls that looked more like herself and her children. The intent of the Curvy Girls movement is to promote body positivity at a young age and teach that Amazing Comes in Every Size #ACES. I backed the pledge at the $40 level which allows me to select which doll

Cortex Complete Smart Dolls Will Release Soon

According to this post on the official website, the first full, non-hybrid, cortex smartdolls will release for official launch in just 2 weeks on 6/13/19. The models available will include Mirai Anniversary, Gaia, and Melody. They will be fully assembled dolls, and not model kits. They had a soft launch of Mirai Anniversary and Gaia Complete Cortex dolls earlier this month, which I completely missed. I am anxious to see what the prices will be on the 13th when the official launch begins. The vinyl version Smart Dolls cost 52,000 yen, which is approximately $475 USD. For those not familiar with Japanese import dolls, such as Asian ball-jointed dolls or Dollfie Dream, this price may seem shocking. However, for those who are already collecting other similar dolls, these prices are qu

I Want To Take an Anime and Manga Tour in Japan

OMG... I want to do this. (Maybe Next Year - I don't have Vacation Time left this year since I will be going to Peru this summer) Their next tour is in just a few weeks, and seems to only happen once a year, in March coinciding with the International Anime Festival AnimeJapan. https://japandeluxetours.com/japan/group/anime-japan-tours#anime3 Visiting Japan is my life long dream. (sadly, mostly just so I can go shopping for anime, game, and doll stuff lol. Although I do want to do the museums and cherry blossoms and hot springs and other cultural things too - though mostly, I'm just a big geeky nerd who loves anime and wants to go shopping - which is what this whole tour is designed for <3) It's not that much money (well OK it is, but it's cheaper than I expected honestly).

Fairyland Minifee Celine ABJD Asian Balljointed Doll Review

Edit: Moved pics to a floating Div to make this post easier to read. EDIT again: turned off inline related posts for this post because they were again breaking this post and making it harder to read - sorry! Today I'm reviewing my Fairyland Celine Minifee in Normal Skin with Default Faceup from Fairyland. She has the Moe bodyline. I've had her now for about 1 year and ordered her during a period of time where Fairyland was experiencing a lot of delays in delivery time due to the popular nature of their sculpts, and high demand for their dolls. I don't know if their delivery time has improved any since then, but I would warn that you're in for a long wait because Fairyland is one of the most popular makers of these t...

Dollmore Model F Melissa Baul Review

  Edit to add: (cleaned up images by moving them to a floating div, making this easier to read. also nixed the old banner ads as we use a different platform now.) I also want to add that Kitty Blue in the Ohio ABJD meetup group helped me restring and hot-glue "suede" this doll a year or two ago which helped a lot of the problems I mention in this review. She also told me buying shoes, especially boots that go up the legs, would help add more stability. I own a dollmore model F Melissa Baul. She is from 2011, so there may be some small changes to new versions. My version has a custom face up that I ordered through Dollmore themselves. The default faceup is quite different. She came free with the same dark short wig and grey colored acrylic e...
