    These are part of my ball-jointed doll (BJD) collection. They are made of resin and their eyes can be changed as well as their wigs, and, of course, their clothing. The third doll has interchangeable hands. All of these dolls were made in Asia, where most ball-jointed dolls originate. The first doll was made by Hypermaniac. The next is by Soul Doll. The third is by Dollti, and the fourth is by the well-known Japanese company, Volks, one of the first to produce ball-jointed dolls.

    The smaller doll, like the Soul Doll in the second photo, is considered an MSD- a Mini Super Dollfie. The others are considered to be SD models (Super Dollfie).

    Hope you enjoy!

      The first one almost looks real. Any reason for the drawn down lips? They look sad.

      Thanks for the love, Roy. They do seem to come to life when they're posed just so. The drawn down lips do make them look sad and pensive. This is just the way they're made, pretty much across the board it seems. I do have a vampire ball-jointed doll who has fangs, and she just looks, well, vicious.

      i think just super laura !!!!!!!! i,m drawn to the green haired one with the gothic black lace dress
      the gaze fascinating
      thanks for sharing laura !!!!!!!!
      the vampire sounds fab someone once described me as a cross between lestat & the little red head girl out of interview with a vampire l.o.l

      Thank you so much, Malkey! I will take more photos of Midori (It's a coincidence her hair is the color of the liqueur as she also has other wigs in other colors.) so you can see her full goth regalia, including high-heeled pleather boots, and I'll photograph Lilith (my vampire doll) as well.

      Hmmmm. Lestat and the little red headed girl out of Interview with a Vampire. Now, that's a cross!

      Wow Laura!! I agree with Roy, the first one does look real! They all look really amazing. I've never seen anything like these before. Simply amazing!

      Something in the eyes make them more real !~
    7. Caperkid, 4 years ago
      Thank you Laura can't wait to see your Vampire.

      Thank you so much for the love, Adele, Scott and Phil. Roy, I posted more photos of Midori and one of Lilith, the vampire, in another thread.

      Scott, they're unusual, right? Like Phil said, I think it's in the eyes and perhaps the pose-ability of them. The fact that you can dress them however you wish and change their hair and eye color is also humanizing.

      Beautiful dolls, every one! Totally love their original looks & clothes

    12. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Amazing Laura! Have never seen dolls like these before......hmm, a lot of work has gone into them!

      Thank you so much, Jenni and Judy. Much appreciated.

      Judy, some people do their own dolls' faces. They'll purchase a blank head or take off the make-up from the original and re-do it. It's a real art. There's a site exclusively for BJD collectors called Den of Angels.

      Thank you for the love, Sean, fortapache and Ken.

      I was into Blythe for a while and have always loved these Dollfies.
      Do you OOAK them yourself Laura?
    15. betweenthelens betweenthelens, 4 years ago
      Thank you for the love, Karen and Michael. Karen, I had an original 1970s Blythe but sold her a while back. I've tried what they call a face-up but got frustrated and decided to just enjoy others' artistry. Do you do any OOAK work?
    16. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      No, although I am often amazed at what others do.!
    17. betweenthelens betweenthelens, 4 years ago
      As am I!
