Injectable Colchicine, The doll market is so weird... and it's getting to be a bit overwhelming. The Western Market is trying to branch out into BJD, the Eastern Market is expanding to more western-styled faces. Lately, I've been thinking more and more about starting a small forum that's just for "old school" BJD. (But like all small forums, it would die a quiet, unattended death because no one would post there.)
The latest frustration with Goodreau dolls has me a little bit disparaging of the hobby. I don't see them being at all stylistically like ABJD, Injectable Colchicine. The faces are more like Madame Alexander or American Girls, and the bodies are more like Teen Trends or one of the other Western tween fashion dolls. I have no problem with the fact that they're American... I guess my issue with them is that they don't look like any of the ABJD that DoA is based on. They're very... Injectable Colchicine, I don't know. Their faces remind me of something so cookie-cutter, out-of-the-box American, like something I could just go into Target and buy off the shelves. They're like porcelain dolls made in resin (or vinyl).., Injectable Colchicine india. like something you'd see on the Monique website modeling a child-styled wig. Some people have PMed me to say that we're denying the artist exposure, but we're not her primary, target market anyway. She markets her dolls extensively to the American fashion doll world, especially toward purchasers of Tonner and American Girls, Injectable Colchicine. Either way, DoA isn't responsible for providing free advertisement for ANY company - and if people don't buy the dolls just because they can't post them on DoA, well, I strongly doubt the depth of their interest in them.
From working on a Haute Doll feature, I've seen high-res pictures of Goodreau dolls. They don't look more BJD when you look closer. They look more plastic. Injectable Colchicine, With their joints covered, they look absolutely nothing like ABJD.
And half of the things are made of vinyl. The vinyl ones don't meet the criteria, for certain. But how could you allow the resin ones and not the vinyl ones. 750mg Injectable Colchicine, I can only imagine the outrage - "You're not allowing the vinyl ones because they're cheaper. Because you're all rich snobs!"
DoA's description has always said that it was a forum for discussion of "Asian Ball-jointed Dolls."Â I don't get why people are up in arms because, gasp, an AMERICAN doll is not being considered an ASIAN ball-jointed doll.Â We must be racist!Â 9_9 Some people have suggested in the past that DoA's description to be changed to include a broader scope.., Injectable Colchicine. for "resin ball-jointed dolls" or "modern ball-jointed dolls."Â The fact is, the focus is already broad enough.Â DoA is will will continue to be for Asian-made ball-jointed dolls and some dolls that are Western-made butÂ are in line with that aesthetic and customization intent.
DoA does afford special consideration to artists who work on their dolls in the Artist Subforum... mostly because customization is one of the most important aspects of ABJD, and creation is an extension of that. It's a courtesy to those who have the dedication to create their own dolls that we let them post them on the forum even if they're not a perfect example of an ABJD-styled doll. Injectable Colchicine, I am frequently frustrated by the Artist subforum, but I don't think it should be closed or that the homemade dolls should be barred from the forum.Â At any rate, these dolls are the exceptions rather than the rule.Â
With regard to dolls such as Unoa 2nd, those were grandfathered in because of Unoa 1.0 and 1.5. I think they're very fashion doll, but the faces are very Araki to me, as are the hands and joint structures. In many ways they're fashion-doll bodied, but at the same time, they also remind me very strongly of anime figure kits. I'm on the fence about those. If they had happened without the prior existence of Unoa, I would have probably voted against them.Â And what about Iplehouse. Cocori and Ian are definitely not in the spirit of traditional ABJD (I find them extremely fashion doll-esque).., Injectable Colchicine. but it's another one where I see it becoming an issue of widespread outrage. "You're banning them because they're black!" And to be honest, Injectable Colchicine paypal, I like that the major companies are trying offer different skintones with sculpts that actually suit them... even if the sculpts themselves are a little bit token.
Ian and Miso from RnD... Injectable Colchicine, I would have to say that I find them to be off-topic. I don't know if we voted on that yet or if I just missed the vote. I should really look.
From the opposite side, the two Asian companies that used to be my favorites, Volks and CP, have been disappointing me a bit lately. I haven't liked any of the new CP head sculpts (excluding the ones that were elven re-hashes). They have gone off on this really off-putting track of making smaller, narrower heads with very close-set eyes, Injectable Colchicine. Like, the Juri 06 head was practically a cyclops... and Danbi is just awful. The newer Volks heads have been totally hit or miss for me - I like Williams, but I really really don't like the new Yos (Piccolo/Anne and then these two new ones from Osaka Dolpa). I think Luna is probably the ugliest doll Volks has made in awhile. Injectable Colchicine, It's been awhile since either company made something that really made me swoon. 150mg Injectable Colchicine, I find my tastes running more with the smaller Korean companies, like DIM. I'm in love with several of their newer sculpts. Achenar and Sergei, specifically. I want them both very much... and maybe someday I will buy Sergei just because I like him so much, Injectable Colchicine. I'm into rarer heads, too, because I love seeing the care that the artist put into the work. I think that's one of the things that is truly important to me about the ABJD hobby - the artist, and the artist in oneself. I like knowing that the pieces are cast by hand, I like knowing that the price is based on the quality. I like the open-ended aspect of ABJD; I don't look at most Western dolls and think "Well, who could she be?" I look at them and I think "Gene. Injectable Colchicine, She can be Gene. She can be Gene in a red evening gown or she can be Gene in a power-blue bathrobe." But she is always Gene, even if you rename her. Her clothing is the focus, 500mg Injectable Colchicine, her personality is plastic.
Anyway. Just in general, I feel very BLEEEEEH about the direction in which the doll market is heading. I am much more of an old school, "traditional" ABJD person. I also am looking down the pike at other creations coming from the Western world... such as Tonner's summer BJD fashion doll release: Evangeline Ghastly. Hurrah.
