Thank you for joining! I actually began my doll hobby jumping into the world of resin bjds! It can get complicated with all the different sizes available for clothes, wigs, eyes, etc. I have been interested in Smart Doll but I am still waiting for the Pocket Doll they teased a while back, which is 1/6 size. BJDs are a treat to own, if you love detail and customizing your dolls, they are definitely a great choice!
The first dolls that makes me interested where Dollfie's. Then there followed a blog of a doll with the name Penny and that's where i found out that there are a lot of BJD company's with interesting designs. The way you can customize them to your own taste is one of the reasons why i like them. I did consider a smart doll as well but i really want to know how the moving parts work and how sensitive they are by the movement of the doll. The skeleton part is a smart part of those dolls. I never heard of the pocket doll but the images of them makes me interested. Now that i see that it is made by Danny Choo i recognize his style in it. He is an interesting person when it comes to making doll prototype designs. He has lastly posted a video of a smart doll where he build in some working robotic parts. Also his daring Centipede girl (wonfes 2011) is a prototype i really like (hoping both will come available at some point). I agree with the difficulty of finding clothes that fit the doll. With so many body types it is hard to find the fitting clothes. About the doll stands i have a lot of questions but i have to see the dolls first before i can even ask something about it. I also thought about making some wooden chairs for them when they arrived. What i notice is that every person has his/her own creative thing with customizing dolls. There are people that do face-ups, some are photographers, others are good with making clothes and there are even some that are making full tattoos for them. I like that creative part of the doll hobby.
