DOLL FAQ

:bulletred: :bulletred: DOLL FAQ :bulletred: :bulletred:


What are these dolls?

They are called Ball-jointed-dolls (BJD) and they come from different asian companys - from Japan, China or South Korea for example. You can move every part of their body because of their ball-joints and elastic strings inside their body. They have wigs, changeable eyes and if you want you can change or remove every part of their body too. And of course you can give them their own style with selfmade make-up (called face-up). Also usually they are anatomical correct with every part of their body, so it's a shame to compare them with Barbie dolls!

What are they for?

They're just for fun. These dolls are for adult owners and collectors who love to play with them, change their dresses and styles and of course TAKING A LOT OF PHOTOS! :XD: Some people create their own storys too and these Dolls are their characters. And many people also love to sew clothes or make accessories for them. So it's like addiction.

How tall are they?

There're so much different sizes. For example you can find very tiny dolls (about 10cm), Yo-SD (about 25cm), MSD (about 40cm), SD (about 60cm) and also you can find dolls taller than 70cm, so we saw dolls with a height of 90cm too! Our Dolls are 21cm - 68cm.

How much do they cost?

You can find Dolls in different price categories. The companies make their own prices, but the cheapest dolls are about 100$ (tiny dolls) and if you have enough money you can afford dolls for more than 1.500$ too... But our weren't that much expensive, of course.

Are your Dolls for sale?

At the moment we don't sell any of our dolls, sorry! (And please don't ask for!)

Do you take Face-up commissions?

Usually we only take face-up commissions from germany. But at the moment we have a little break. We're very sorry.

What do you use for your Face-ups and Tattoos?

We work with usual watercolor pencils (aquarelle), pastels and sometimes with acylic, but everything have to be oil-free! Clear acylic paint (from Tamiya Color) for shiny lips and eyes. Mr. Color Thinner for removing the old face-ups. And Mr. Super Clear FLAT (MSC) and Purity Seal for fixing face-ups.

And what do you use for Monster High and Pullip repaints?

MH - acetone-free and oilfree nailpolish remover for removing the old color, MSC flat for sealing before and after painting, soft pastels and aquarelle/watercolor pencils. Everything oil-free of course too.

Pullip/Blythe - superfine sand paper for removing the old colors (no thinner or nailpolish remover please!), MSC flat, soft pastels and aquarelle/watercolor pencils. Everything oil-free again.

How do you do Face-ups in detail?

At the moment we don't have a face-up tutorial yet, but we really can recommend AndrejAs YouTube Channel! She's a fantastic Face-Up Artist and answered most of the usual questions in her Videos. Please take a look: Link

Where do you buy your Dolls and Clothes?

Usually we buy our Dolls direcly from the manufacturer, middlemen on Ebay or on second hand markets. And Clothes we usually buy on Ebay or other BJD online stores too. For example: SW&Doll, Tatas Paradise, Alice Collections. But also we sew some things by ourself!^^

Where do you buy your Dolls wigs?

www.eluts.com/
www.leekeworld.com/
crobidolls.com/index.php
furwigs: www.swdoll.com/

How you get into that Hobby?

We have always watched Animes and read Mangas. So since a very long time we love Japan. And also we love to collect Manga PVC Figures and some day we saw many photos of these beautiful dolls in the internet. We always dreamt about having such a doll too, but as you know they are so expensive. But we've got many informations about prices and sizes and since the beginning of 2011 we have our first own Dolls too! :D

Can I use your photos as stock/reference?

No. Usually we don't give permission to use our pictures in any way, especially not for commercial use. We only take photos for fun and sharing with you, please understand our decision~ But if you find stolen photos (on tumbr, FB, ebay or other websites), please report them, that would be nice! Thank you!

Thanks for reading! :dance:

MASKCAT SD girls release

Wed Mar 5, 2014, 5:33 PM
"Sisters of Spring" Event

We are very proud to announce that our first girls in SD size, Ruolan and Xilv, are finished! ^^



To celebrate this release, we want to start a special spring Event for them for 2 months (starting March 15th). If you order one of the SD girls during the "Sisters of Spring Event" you get an elf head for free! Ruolan and Xilv are two special dolls, because they have human and elf ears! ^^

We hope you like this feature. After the event you can choose between the elf or human ears head! Only during this event you get both head types, so don't miss this chance!
