to an earlier confession about fers. What the frick is that? I understand that it’s some type of clothing, but a definition would be really nice <3

To the people saying to check google, it really didn’t help me either, i’m in the same boat as Anon. All it brings up is government programs and junk.

Dollheart fers were particular cut clothing sets that came with a dress and a hooded jacket. They have kind of a witchy or goth look to them.

I doodle way too much when I&#8217;m bored.

truebjdconfessions:

i’m not that active in the hobby, not only because it’s expensive (i only have one doll) but also because it feels kind of intimidating. there always seems to be a new drama going on and a game of he-said-she-said. i have one friend (and they’re online, at that) who has bjds, and i started talking to them because of another fandom altogether. most people don’t even know that i have a bjd because i don’t know how to talk to people about my hobby or anything, i’m scared of a negative reply. My doll is still with the default outfit and makeup she came with—she’s a bluefairy doll and i love her so much, but i don’t know who to ask for a custom face-up or anything. i want to be more invested in the hobby and everything, but i know that i won’t really make many friends or anything like that. after a while it just kind of feels like it’s difficult to get into the hobby when most people know each other and you’re so new (even though i’ve had my doll for almost 2 years).

First of all, avoid the confession blogs.  At this point, it seems to me that they’re like sex - don’t try them unless you’re ready for it.

Secondly, most BJD hobbyists absolutely LOVE it when someone comments on their pictures or out-of-the-blue sends them a message.  In fact, I can’t think of one who doesn’t love this.  It can be intimidating, because some of us can be a little blunt or opinionated, or because some of us are really close with other hobbyists, but I promise you that we’re all just a bunch of shy dorks playing with dolls.  We’re harmless, and we love talking about dolls.

We also love talking about other things, so you can let the conversation flow naturally.  It doesn’t always have to be about dolls.

And lastly, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with having the default outfit or face-up on your doll.  If you want to find good face-up artists, I’d suggest going on DoA or Castaways.  DoA requires an invite, which I am happy to give, and it does require a post-count reached (as well as a certain length of time on the forum), but honestly, it’s not that bad.

But seriously, if you love your doll as she is, that’s all that matters.  The confession blogs aren’t a good place to look if you’re unsure about the community.  I’d suggest fuckyeahoriginalbjdpics, fuckyeahballjointdolls, and inkmetalandresin.  Those blogs share some great pictures, and will probably answer any questions you have.

As for individual hobbyists?

And oh god, I’ve forgotten someone, but those are some awesome people to follow.  All of them are really nice, and I promise, won’t buy.  Some will bite if invited, but that’s just how it is.

I bite one random blogger and all of a sudden I have a reputation.

The sad thing is, I never knew about the random blogger.

Yeah, sod does wonders for covering impromptu burial plots.

After rewatching the episode I swear to gods I may just have to dollify Mr. Quinlan. After I finish up Morby’s stuff he’s soooo next in line.

You know you’ve crossed the line when you think $500 for a doll is a bargain.

~Anonymous

welp

Shit

I’m thoroughly corrupted when I think 140 is perfectly acceptable to pay for a doll but get offended at 28$ shipping. 

It’s always the shipping that’s too much- I totally added 110$ to my last order to qualify for free shipping and it was only 48$. 

What has this hobby done to us all. 20$ for a pair of shoes for ourselves, no way. 20$ for a pair of BJD shoes WOW what a deal

$20 for a new memory foam pillow? Are you freaking crazy?!

Oh $60 for a case for my doll with soft padding so he can rest okay, geeze that’s so cheap!

Wait…

Did I lose three followers from spazzing out over the Strain? 

Oh.. anyone still following me should know that vampires will happen on this blog. A lot.

It irks me when people speak of their dolls without mentioning sculpt names, simply by name as if everyone knows all their 30+ fucking dolls names.

~Anonymous

I do this all the time. But if anyone really really wants to know the sculpts I have a page on my main blog that lists them, so you know, there you go.

buffdolls:

I have sincerely appreciated the support from those who have reblogged to spread the word, and those who have made pledges. 

At this time, with 6 days left, it doesn’t look like there is much chance of making it to the end. A reminder, though, that you can get a face-up from me, including shipping, for $50, instead of the usual $65. Though you are funding the headbacks, that is one of the rewards. 

This will be the last posting. For those people who have supported the kickstarter, I will eventually re-order the headbacks, but it will be a while, as the interest just doesn’t seem to be there yet.
