Stuff like Sylvanian Families/Calico critters and Nendoroid dolls are also welcomed. If you can put on clothes and pose them, they're dolls.

Yeah, I was thinking this could be different from the toy collecting thread because it would focus solely on dolls - kinda like we have a plushies thread. There are so many doll lines and doll related stuff that I thought I'd give it a shot. Maybe this thread will be just me posting pics I like lol

Oh fair enough I forgot about the plushie thread. Do you know what line the dark skinned girl is, I lover her!
Bought a few MHs today from the flea market, I did not notice one Draculaura had beautiful uhhhhh, eyeshadows made with market by a kid. I like the challenge though, I'll try to incorporate it to my custom job somehow!

I agree she's super cute, I love her flocked buzz cut! Unfortunately I don't know what type of doll she is, I'll try to look for it.
Also, post your final custom when you're done!

Their outfits are amazing, indeed. I love how they lift stuff from real life, it makes it so much more modern and relevant. Wish I could buy just their clothes.

Not my pic, but I recently found this My Friend Jenny doll at a little antique shop near me. She's so adorable, I love her sweet expression. Her torso and upper arms are made of cloth so she's very comforting to hold and reminds me of my old Holly Hobby rag dolls ♥ She's from Fisher Price, there are other dolls in the line but on the packaging she's advertised alongside a blonde doll named Mandy who I think is just adorable and am considering buying on ebay. I love when dolls have other friends in the line, like OG Barbie and Midge, I always pretend they're girlfriends.
Side note, but does anyone here collect larger dolls like these? If so, how do you display them? I just never feel like I have enough room to do it properly.

I feel like a bitch for this but it’s jarring how many random people (not saying you) obsess over the ghost cat. I think it’s adorable so it shouldn’t be a surprise but random Pinterest and Twitter pics have caused the prices of that figure and the blind bag series to absolutely skyrocket.
Anyway, I love the themed babies in general, picrel

It really depends on what's your purpose, I guess. I wouldn't mind tampering with it, if it was tasteful or well done. It's better than just let it collect dust. If your going to be happier with the custom, I'd do it, but if you think you're gonna ruin it, I think I'd donate it. I really like the horror idea, though

Bought some new clothes for my dolls. I haven't been able to sew, but I wanted to give them cute new clothes. Hopefully it will arrive soon! I wish the local adult doll scene was bigger, it's kinda hard to find cute clothes for dolls that are not for little kids that like really bright rainbow clothes.

I think you could buy one or two dolls like Licca chan or this >>215841
because they're quite small and don't take much space at all. Picrel, they are almost half the size of a Barbie, and with some smart choices you can get Barbie clothes to fit them. Liccas can get a bit pricey, but you could get it second hand without breaking the bank, or you could even buy separate parts on AliExpress and make you custom one for cheaper.
Example of a link for Licca heads: https://a.aliexpress.com/_mPhpyR8
They also have a body in that listing, but here's another body that is more posable, and although a bit bigger, also fits a Licca head (but it's pricier too): https://a.aliexpress.com/_mPhpyR8
I'm parcial to clothes collecting rather than doll collecting, because I personally think it's more fun to own many clothes and a few dolls and create scenes/looks with them rather than many dolls that only have one or two fixed outfits. So for clothing, you can get them at AliExpress, local flea markets or thrift stores, toy stores that sell doll clothes, or even learn how to sew them yourself, which I highly recommend! It's a very rewarding hobby and you can put it to use for your own clothes as well. And it's cheaper: I've used old t-shirt's sleeves to make a whole t-shirt for my dolls, baby socks, left over fabric from making masks or stuff like that. You can have a lot of fabric variety! Also it's great for your hand coordination.
Either way, good luck, anon!

I think it's cute, but with room for improvement (for me, personally)
I am not a huge fan of the bags under the eyes that make it look kinda swollen (maybe if she painted it another color?) and the uwu eyebrows, but I really like the eye rendering. As this anon said >>216284
it's really hard to pull OMG customs off. I like their bodies and I absolutely love the variety in fashion, but their faces are very… Tweety-like. And although I do like their bodies, I wish they were a bit more standard so I could go thrift hunting for their clothes only lol

I don't know, maybe you could sew for them? I've seen them with custom clothing. But I think they are a bit different from each other, there are some dolls that come with more of a rocker/alt style, some are more preppy/designer, some are more hip-hip focused, and some are basic LA influencer, indeed. It's not a huuuge variety, but it is there.>>216464
I have no idea how much they are outside my country (which is an insane amount), but they are pricier than most dolls. I guess because of their inset eyes, lashes, and detailed fashion clothes. >>216487
For skirts and baggier clothing is definitely fine, but I think it can get tricky for shorts and more shapely tops. Some etsy stores do sell RH specific clothes, though
i dont know why mga is selling them like they are gold. Like these dolls are made in a cheap factory in china with slave labor, they should cost less than 60-80.
Mga used to sell bratz for a more affordable price and they would have huge discounts on them all the time and those dolls came with alot of accessories, now theyre money hungry.
File: 1656017559220.png (924.08 KB, 640x853, q9wh0uuf51l71.png)
I like Bratz, but they are not comparable.. Yes, RH are obviously more expensive then what they cost to make, but Bratz:
>Barely have any articulations>Same face mold for all>Clothes are usually less detailed and smaller >Mainly plastic accessories, not fabric clothing>Faces are painted on, no lashes, no inset eyes or lashes>Hair volume is smaller, also less crazy hair colors >Smaller doll in general>They don't even have feet
I am the doll that is eating the shoe on accident
Also I want a moment to appreciate how absolutely bitching the Bratz' caddilac was. It's a personal holy grail of mine
File: 1656019625538.jpg (92.63 KB, 1280x720, maxresdefault (1).jpg)
mga are being greedy though, do you see how expensive they sell those ugly lol baby dolls. I bought one of them and they looked so cheap and ugly that i threw them away yet they cost alot for small baby dolls.
File: 1656026154285.png (2.17 MB, 1080x1080, 90235756.png)
Yeah, those are their best sellers because they are cheap and for small kids that like the excitement of opening a thousand wrappers. I don't know why you even bothered with these tbh
They are also not very comparable to RH, but yeah, MGA will sell it for profit and they are greedy (it's a big toy company after all), it's just that RH dolls are probably costlier to make because of the reasons I gave, so they will be very expensive. 80 is too
much, I agree, but well, you don't have to buy it.

I am not super well versed in BJDs, but I think they are Minifees. More knowledgeable anons, please correct me if I am wrongyou can buy recasts of them on AliExpress. Some BJD elitists don't like it cause they are bootlegs. Great for costumizing, though, especially as a beginner aliexpress.com/item/1754109358.html

are new dolls by Volks. They share the same face. The one on the right is Mācha and the one on the left is Yumepi. Aren't they pretty?
Please do not buy recasts, you will get a subpar item made my a shady company that indiscriminately steals from small artists. Most BJD companies are just a few people and even Volks is a small business. Fairyland the maker of Minifee is already lacking, so you will get a shitty copy of a shitty doll. If it has to be a BJD, consider purchasing dolls secondhand for a cheaper option.
File: 1656286072081.jpg (237.33 KB, 750x1125, diez4-2563035683.jpg)
Reading this thread has reminded me of my longtime dream of wanting to make a BJD of my husbando, so I decided to start researching on what kind of doll would I like it to be. I ended up deciding that I'll most probably just buy a Kid Delf since they're my favorite size and I don't really trust the cheaper BJD companies for some reason or another (or maybe it's just because I find their faces ugly even when the bodies they do are just fine) and then customize it into my husbando as I sew the wig and all of his clothes.
Doll nonas that know far more than I do, any advice for me?
>>217260>The most important thing is making sure you get the doll you love the most. Ignore any advice to get a starter or a cheaper doll! It took me too many years to learn that you can really only start to enjoy the doll if it's one you love.
Thank you a lot! This really makes me glad to have heard about because I'm sure I was just about to start falling into that meme.>Luts is a good company with very good quality, so it's a good choice.
I kind of guessed so already, and I'm pretty sure that I was probably on the right since as I said on my first post, my gut feelings weren't exactly positive about the cheaper doll vendors for some reason or another.>Have you ever sewed a wig and clothes before? If not, you might waste a lot of materials learning, so keep that in mind.
Not really, but I'm willing to learn along the way and since I don't live in the US I don't think purchasing the clothing (except for maybe the shoes) off someone else wouldn't be worth it due to price and such.>I hope you can bring your husbando to life. Also, join Den of Angels as soon as you can. The hobby is a lot more fun with friends and there is information you can only get if you ask for it.
. Personally the main reason why I feel like joining it is so I can know the waiting times for certain stuff to ship home and perhaps some other obscure tips I can't get off public web resources, but I could very well do so in the future!
>>217281>NTA, but they already mentioned Den of Angels. It's basically a BDJ forum where people sell clothing, dolls and even offer face ups for a fee. You can questions. It isnt as bussin as it was 10 years ago, but it still gets traffic.
Makes a lot of sense, I guess I will check it out soon!>And a good wig helps a ton.
Really? I wonder if that means buying an actual wig and just styling it to look like my husbando's hairstyle would be the better option over doing everything myself, although considernig that I can't sew it probably would be worth the money in case I screw up my own wig.>I hope you get your dream doll, anon. Luts is a great choice.
Thanks nonna, from what I've seen most people seem to agree with Luts being one of the better choices, and I also really like their aesthetic when it comes to how they make their dolls look like.

They are really, really expensive in my country, so they are very niche. I don't think I would even be able to find them easily, let alone resell it, unfortunately. At least if it was just a fashion pack, I could probably get away with importing them for a bit cheaper.
This hippie one is also pretty cute!

Yeah the prices are outrageous here too. $19.99 doll is $64 here. Fucking crazy. Though they sold LOL OMG dolls here too for $92 (~$30 in Amazon US). I just order mine outside my country, I ain't paying those prices. Seems like no one else is either, since so few stores sell them. But maybe you would be able to get more money from selling them since they are so rare?
Btw I just realized I've prob spent like a thousand dollars on these bobble head fuckers… HELP I hate being a consoooomer
