I've been absent from the doll hobby for awhile due to some financial obligations, but I'm finally in a position to return!I've started sewing clothes again, and gotten some materials together to practice doing faceups and body blushing.I suppose this is just me checking in again, and saying 'Hello!' ^_^ Hopefully I'll be able toattend a meet-up sometime - admittedly, I've only been to one doll meet, but that was around two years ago back in Florida. Admittedly, I'm pretty busy with college studies and have become a bit of a hermit, but I'd like to meet some other people who loves dolls.
Hello,I just got an LJ not too long ago and thought this might be a good way to get more involved with the local ABJD hobby community.I have been in the hobby for almost three years and am on DoA, where I go by the same name as I do here. I concentrate mostly on the character development aspects of the hobby as well as doing face-ups and blushing (albeit, not fantastically).I have been to one meet-up, and I would like to attend more to meet people with similar interests and to see other dolls.~Louis-Elle
Hello there all, My name is Kelly and I am very new to this community, I apologize in advanced if this message is offensive in any way or anyone feels it dosn't exactly belong here.first I was wondering, are there any BJD communities in southern California? I looked around and this is what I've stumbled on to me and my boyfriend would really love to have people to meet up with.Well to get started...About a year ago my boyfriend and I had discovered a my melody Pullip doll on Ebay, I am a collector of my melody items and was overly thrilled when I discovered such a thing, and being a big fan of Visual kei, Lolita and Japanese street fashion and I tend to wear these myself, so I found them highly appealing~~ Anyway, we also found the Cinnamonroll dal and he was squeeing like a hyper child on 10 pounds of sugar sense he adores Cinnamonroll, I later then did some research before buying like most, and was curious about the brand to get all the more excited a few months later when I discovered the brand had multiple different Lolita or punk style type dolls, even more so when I realized it was a collaborated Korean/Japanese company sense I am also a huge fan of Korean pop culture as well. My boyfriend, however, has never had a single doll in his life let alone an action figure...his parents are very strict and traditional, so they only bought him connects when he was little (yes he was very deprived) or dollar store toys if he was lucky, so he got super excited when I said we should buy some and 'play' with them, maybe even model for photos which hes great at and build them a house..maybe do some stop motion animation.He really wants to start using his creative energies, so I thought this would be a good opportunity...however...Then he discovered Ringdolls and Elfdolls a few days ago after doing some research, he kept going on and on about the details and everything until I looked at them, and boy was he right ._.; The only thing though was, we kind of shooed it off as for 'hardcore doll collectors' or something, sense most people would think we are crazy for spending 100 or more on a Pullip.at first I didn't see what was so special, but then after only a few moments of browsing around I fell in love<3He likes them much better then Pullip, and obviously so do i, though, they are expensive and even If I am willing to go throw out money to get one, hes highly snarky about what we spend money on...Even when considering Pullips he was being kind of iffy, only because of the prices though, and a little 'turned off' that most of the doll community is girls, he doesn't care to be ridiculed for his excitement, but because he'll feel a bit lonely in that area X3and no he is not bi or gay in any shape or form surprisingly, nor is it a perverted fascination, I'm only clearing this up because when I mentioned it to others they thought he was or something, personally I think its normal for guys to play with dolls he wants to make a mini me and a mini him play house...ect x.xWe are entirely confused as to what dolls we should get...what to get first... my mind is going like 'buy it now! buy everything' and being impatient its really hard to contain my enthusiasm xD but before I make a mistake and splurge, what do you think is the best doll for us?I'm also worried If we do buy a professional dolly we will regret it later... I already had to hear him gripe about the copics I bought, and to be honest I haven't used them much yet, I truly love the Ring dolls...the details and accessories, I also like how they are a newer company and appeal to my fashion sense and character.I know most people 'collect' these dolls and not play with them, but i've looked around and seen a few people do that, and I'm hoping its okay to.. Eventually we plan to get both the Ringdoll, Elf doll and Pullips, but hes saying we shouldn't get very many and the Pullips first...But personally, I wanted to know what the Doll community thought, Please don't throw tomatoes at me if i'm sounding silly here ;_;' I don't exactly know much about quality BJDs or anything so please give me the information I need! n_nOh did I mention I love to role play? n_n' this is also a contributing factor I want to make stories and have character development for my dolls hence why I write a lot I think...,well hopefully this explanation wasn't too long for you, I LOVE playing with dolls and havn't sense I was 13 I'm 19 now...so I thought it would be good to start again, HOWEVER I still want good quality pose able dolls, I do not plan to be rough and tumble and wish to take very good and proper care of them, The most roughhousing I'd probably do is bring them to town with me x3so, what are your opinions? I'd really like to know... am I worthy of owning such nice dolls, or no? Sorry if I'm sounding a bit too formal, I do this when I haven't had much sleep ._.; anyway thank you for your time and I appreciate that you read all this, I know its quite an eyesore ^^ heheh.
So, I want to (finally) get into doing faceups for other people, besides as favors here and there. I will be redoing a bunch of my own dolls, but they're all minis and tinies and have pretty set styles. I'd really like to do a wider range and work on doing them for other people, and would like to start locally.So, if anyone has a doll they'd like a faceup done for, for free, I will be more than happy to do so. As I redo my other dolls I'll put their pictures up so that you can get an idea for my skill level.Thanks everybody!
Hello, this is my first time viewing this community, I don't see a rules thread so I hope the info page was enough.~ I'm only here for one reason unless I grow a fandom and lurk around (which might happen) Anyways, I'm here to look for a ball jointed doll that is as proportional as possible. I've looked on ebay and don't see any fair prices, I may even wish for two of them for couples poses ^_^ My budget greatly varies, but I'd prefer $20 (*hears the sound of thrown tomatoes*) what's the average these go for? I'm brand new here, so I might go higher, I want a reasonable price. Are all of these able to stand up by itself or do they include a stand? I only intend to use one for a huge time frame 10-however long I live, even, so proportionality is what I'm after. What's optional is that it looks like my character, Lugia animewaterdragon.deviantart.com/art/REFERENCE-FOR-LUGIACHAN-121376183 which I may create clothes for the doll and get a custom wig for ^_^ so I'll greatly love it! No children OR pets are in the house, and I'm constantly an artist at work: currently learning human proportions as a day-to-day basis! I even have a little sleeping blanket one (or two) can use to tuck them away at night. (*Awww!*) So anyways, one female and one male. I will hope to even modify the male version to look like her husband, img.photobucket.com/albums/v259/LugiaChan/Lugia%20X%20Dark/DarknessCharacter.png Darkness, or even the human version of him. I only seen the front page so far- so I'll get inspired and look through more furry dolls ^_^ They're so cute! I'd love to have this couple for myself, and for drawing reference. If there's anything I missed in the rules or whatnot, please let me know. I have paypal to pay.

Hellu fellow Houstoners! It's a long shot, but a petition has been startedby some fellow DOAers to bring a dolpa to Texas. Everyone forgets what large cities we have and it's time Volks knows it to! lol We all know Volks never does anything fast, but maybe this will get them thinking~ Sign it and pass it on if you'd like Texas Dolpa~

Hi, Newbie to the community, though I've been collecting BJDs for awhile now. I was just wondering how active you guys are, or if any of you still do meet-ups. I'd love to meet some more people who love BJDs as much as I do.Some stuff about me: I live in the Clear Lake area. I'm currently attending the University of Houston for Painting, hoping to get into children's animation at some point in my life. I love anything having to do with art or crafts. I've been collecting BJDs, I guess you could say, since 2006, though I'm not as big of a collecter as many others I've seen.I posted some pictures of one of my dolls here: http://lavababy.deviantart.com/ yesterday, and hope to post more in the future.Anyway, looking forward to getting to know some of you. : )
Hello everyone! This is a nice little community!Anyway, I just thought i'd share that i'm auctioning off a Dream of Doll wig for MSD right over here.cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dllThe auction ends in 12 hours so hurry in case anyone's interested. The wig looks like this...I also believe the wig is only available if you buy the fullset of Si, and not just by itself.
I'm considering selling my Pipos Limited Bao (postman version). Though I'm hopeful someone will want to give her a good home soon, with the way the economy is, I'm not crossing my fingers too hard. ^_^;Either way, I thought I'd advertise her here. :)EDIT: She's already on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180337641044http://www.denofangels.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4461507#post4461507 - DOA thread.

I'm selling a discontinud Volks Navy blue wig on DoA - just thought I'd advertise it here since it's a bit unusual, in my opinion. ^_^EDIT: Here's a picture - sorry it's not a very good one. ^^;My asking price is $30 including shipping to anywhere in the US. ^_^http://www.denofangels.com/forums/showthread.php?t=261054
Hi everybody! Wow, this is a nice LJ community to have X3 Like the rest of you, I live in the Houston area (Galleria district!) and I have become hopelessly addicted to BJDs. While I don't have one yet, I am saving for one and hope to have one by this time next year. I attend the Art Institute here in the city and was wondering if any of my fellow AiHers might be hiding around here somewhere.
I've got a LTD Pipos Mango with the pink nose up for sale on ebay. The listing is here:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=180295935563Hopefully a cat-lover (and someone who can make tiny clothing), can give her a better home than me. :/
Please take her home with you ♥p.s. I live in Texas so shipping will be cheap
I'm selling my Lishe on ebay, but if anyone wants to buy her I'll gladly pull her off (I like to avoid fees, too, but I'm trying to give her greater visibility.)We just aren't bonding at all, and since I'm suffering from tuition debts, I can't just let her sit around. ^_^;EDIT: UPDATED link!http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=180290065137
I have a question regarding DoA, but I guess I'll do a short intro really quick. ^^; My name is Abbi, I'm fifteen, and I live in The Woodlands (which is, unfortunately, almost an hour away from Houston...) I'll be ordering my first BJD soon :D A DOT Camine~So on to my question- I made a DoA account not two months ago, and I just logged on again this week. However, I can't post, and I can't view any threads if I try to get to them from a direct link. =/ DoA says I never confirmed my account (which I probably didn't), but I can't find a link to resend my confirmation email. :( Anyone know what I should do?
Well, some of you may not have seen the notice on Den of Angels, but right now there is a Memorial Day meetup planned. It will be in League City, at the park with the Gazebo (League Park). So far the time is set for around 10, but it might be changed. Since there's a few people who have birthdays around that time, there will be probably one larger cake and a few doll-sized ones. Any further suggestions on the time/suggestions in general/RSVPs?
I have been trying to save money for my first doll which is DOT Sha, but I guess I have to give up because I can't afford him anymore due to A-kon next month. I am looking for a 1/3 boy with a girly look from brands that have cheaper price. Is there any recommended company I should look at besides Dollzone? By the way, my friend's friend owns a AOD doll, is it real that AOD doesn't have an actual site?
I ordered the double-jointed body for my girl - (and I kick myself from not ordering just from Souldoll directly, since I wouldn't have had to do this otherwise. ;_;)Either way, I'm feeling my Yewon's old body, which is practically new! It is the mature Soulkid type with the slimmer waist and larger bust - this is not the double-jointed body, however.This would be good if your soulkid needs a new body, or you want to make a hybrid! ^_^ (I believe minifees match up skin-tone wise VERY well.)Pictures are below the cut. ^_^( Read more...Collapse )
I moved to Houston about three months ago from Florida. ^_^My name is Dani, and I am Pantalaimon on DoA.I have two MSD sized dolls (a Soulkid Yewon and an AR Littlefair Ren girl), though one is for sale at the moment, and a Pipos bao fox. ^_^I'm currently paying off two LTD Pipos Ringos, but after that (or pending the sale of my other doll), I'll be looking to order a Minifee Shushu from Fairyland. I've really become a fan of the anthro-dolls, so I'll definitely be getting more of those, as well as a few more (eventually) MSD sized boys and girls. SDs are just giant, to me - it's like carrying a small child. XDA picture of my girl and her foxy is here below the cut, along with some hats I started making.

Rarely come to this community... but I am curious is there anyone here that happens to live in Friendwood/Clear Lake area? I don't have a doll yet and I don't get to see dolls in real life enough to make decision about what type of dolls I rerally want.
I just found this after some searching... I swear with DoA down like it is, my days seem longer. Or would, if my Cherry girl hadn't just arrived. I'm Suuchan on there, by the way. I was wondering if anyone would be up for a meetup. I wasn't able to go to the one in December, and the last one here in League City that I tried to start up only had two other people-one who was staying at my house for a week. I'd be up for really any weekend, provided my plans don't change radically.
Date: Saturday Dec. 22ndTime: 3pm (tentative)Location: (tentative) I'm going to try to obtain a meeting room for us at the Mercer Arboretum, its a beautiful place and the Library there has a meeting room free for public use. If anyone has objections to this, or better ideas. Let me know.Food: I'd like to make this a pot-luck event. So please, bring whatever Christmas goodies you like! (though we may not be able to due to library rules.)Theme: Secret Santa! Please get or make a gift for one doll (under $10) who's owner you'll be assigned. Also you & your doll can wear your Holiday finest!! (Lolita is welcomed, if your into it!) I want this to be a nice little Holiday party for us all!Please head over to the thread over at DOA Houston Holiday Doll Meet to let me know if you'd be able to attend. All additional information will be updated there and you can PM me with questions or suggestions or leave them in the thread. Thanks and happy upcoming holidays *_*
I didn't think I would ever have a problem of not bonding with a doll but I have had this boy for a year now and we are just not bonding and he doesn't work well for the character I had in mind for him so I am thinking of selling him. He's a BW skinned Doll In Mind R-Asiam. He's a limited edition, one of only 20 made. No longer available on the DIM site. R-asiams have pointier noses than I like so he has custom modding on his nose, it's been sanded down to be less pointy, so he is one of a kind in world now. He has a gorgeous face up by an artist here on DOA. He's in wonderful condition and will come with two wigs (both pictured) and his set of brown eyes. Body has been lightly blushed. Asking $680 plus s/h or best offer, I am willing to listen to offers so don't be shy. I will ship worldwide. PAYPAL is preferred for payment. NO LAYAWAYS (as I need the funds asap to buy bodies for my floating heads). I hope someone can give him a great home. Message me if interested or email me at batty(at)io.comPhotos below cut:( photos hereCollapse )
Original Text Copypasta'd from DoA:
I finally saved enough money after 3 years of hard work, now I have money to get Twin-B! ^^ I'm just wondering if anyone here is interested in spliting Twingkey & Twin-B set? Because I don't like Twingkey, and I don't have access to market place at DOA to look for a person to split or Twin-B on sale. I do want the official outfit, so I turned down the DS my friend found for me. ^^;;;; I'm just thinking spliting will be cheaper. ^^
I posted some photos from yesterday's meet up in my doll journal so I thought I'd share the link and see if anyone else had any they were going to post up anywhere. :)http://duckies-dolls.livejournal.com/33419.html
Hi! I am new here and I have recently got my first doll after a long time of saving (2 years) I have posted his pictures in my doll journal inkukun_dollsand update it every once in a while. I have started looking for communities related to Texas and BJD since I live in Texas, but there is nothing about Dallas any where which is the closest major city I live by ;-; But at least there is something Texas and BJD related here and I am fine with that. :3Hopefully I can go to Doll Meet-ups someday! By joining this community I can be informed about meet-ups and local stuff… even if Huston is a little far from Dallas it is as local as I can get XDNow for random pictures of my Doll~( Read more...Collapse )
Would anyone be interested in a DELF large bust body, normal skin. It's a newer older body (not the fancy redesigned one or whatever). I figured I'd post something on LJ before going to DoA, because quite frankly, I can't stand the place. I'd be looking for around somewhere between 300 to 400. To my knowledge there is currently nothing wrong with the body, but I'll be doing a sweep down and what have you/picturing taking. I really haven't used it much in several months, since I sold the head. And, unfortunately, I need to get this sold pretty quickly, so if I don't hear a nything off LJ after a couple days, I'll be biting the bullet and moving this over to DoA. But eh, I figured I'd let a more local/friend based community have a shot at it first. Lastly, I no longer have the official LUTS box. At some point in time I ended up one box short, and thought this would be corrected when I bought an Iplehouse body a few months ago. But yeah, they send their bodies in a bag apparently. If you are interested, just reply to this post or send me an email at: email@example.comX-Posted to my journal.
Duckie posted her photos from the zoo meet; my turn now. :)( Photos!Collapse )It was nifty meeting you guys!We're also tentatively planning an indoor meet in July at a Japanese restaurant called Cafe Japon near Kirby and 59. I'm thinking July 21st?
Ok so it rained and Loli and I had to leave early but I did get some photos from the zoo meet yesterday.If you're interested in seeing em, they're in my dollie journal: http://duckies-dolls.livejournal.com/32711.htmlHope to see more of ya at the next meetup we plan! :D
I remember we were trying to organize a June meetup awhile back, but not sure if anything was solidified. How does June 16th sound? Ideas on where people would like to meet up? I'd prefer it be closer to central Houston rather than out near League City. I think that makes it more central for everyone in the area.
Hi~! I was just wondering if anyone here would be interested in splitting a Volks WIlliams? =O He is in stock on the japanese volks site. The only thing I am interested in keeping is the long legged body. XD

Well, I mentioned this before a while back, but I think that I am actually going to go for it this time, since the comments that I did get were positive. Right now, it is currently under construction, but everyone is free to sign-up and being posting, or whatever.I really think that if this community gets under way, it can really be beneficial to all of us Texas.Texas Ball Joint Doll ForumAlso, we're probably not allowed to post links to other forums on DoA, are we? The rules update more often than I visit the place, so I'm not entirely sure.
I deleted my journal (ocellaris), so I will spam these here. Hahahahaha.
