I have no idea where this sudden wave of inspiration came from.
Or where I'm getting these ideas...

But as you all probably know or have heard of, there are asian ball joint dolls out there and they are beautiful.

Beautiful and ridiculously expensive.

But I'm going to get back on topic here,  has anyone made a BJD from scratch? If so...

How did you do it?
Where did you find your supplies?

And...

What kind of supplies did you use?

I'm looking forward to any and all responses (mainly the helpful ones). ^_^

Cheers!

Or if you register with Den of Angels, they have a whole section devoted to handmade BJDs

I think it's the poppets that bring BJDs to mind. Ghillie said she created the first one because she wanted a BJD but couldn't stretch to it.
I myself have just bought an AOD Chen, I love him and because of the poppet along, I'm more confident to make him clothes and stuff!

Good luck!

That is simply a MARVELOUS idea!

I shall wander over there right now and gather all the information I can.

Thanks to everyone who's been so helpful ^^

Just as a note:

This is still a work in progress but what I did to get a ball joint doll was to buy an artist's anatomical model and make clothes for that. As soon as I am finished, I will post some photos. Smiley
