It's a crocheted Tesla coil!  How cool is that!

Well, look at it this way.  A BJD is art you can play with.  People spend 600 dollars on a canvas all the time, and they just hang on the wall.  These dolls, you can sew or knit or crochet for, do their faceups, pose and photograph them, or just spend time enjoying them.  Also, there are less expensive ones.  I know the Denver Doll Emporium carries Planetdolls, which aren't too expensive.  Bobobie also isn't bad. 

But then, I'm sitting here with four of them staring at me.  I'm already a resin addict.

Another method that might work for horns, or even for larger bits like sculpted faces, is to sculpt it with a wider ring around the bottom, then create a hole in the cloth part smaller than that ring.  Then, you can just push it through and it'll stay in place well when it is stuffed.  This method also works well with amigurumi.

Some dollhouse supply stores sell room boxes, but that might be too small as well.  Have you considered just using reinforced cardboard with "wallpaper" over it?  I've had decent success with that in the past.  Or you could look for a sufficiently large shadowbox.  Where furnishings are considered, for little things, Re-ments are 1/6 scale.  Otherwise, skewers and toothpicks and glue and cloth and creativity ought to do you!  And paint.  Lots of paint.

The hair is great!  But my favourite thing about her is her socks and shoes.

Wow!  Her expression is just so simply innocent and sweet!  I love her personality.

Pipe cleaners are easy to join together into a skeleton type shape and they are not pointy.  Just remember to curl the ends into circular shapes to avoid all question of pointyness and put the stuffing in all around the armature and you ought to be fine.

That is really cool!  Inset eyes look so much better than eyes floating on the surface.  Now I just need to figure a way to do this with my amigurumis easily...
