They are all made in either china, Korea or Japan and you get them nearly always online unless you find someone who sells them at cons, in person or a retailer who actually has a shop (likeVOLKS
USA in CA). Here are some links:

http://www.dollsoom.com/

http://www.eluts.com/

http://www.dreamofdoll.com/

http://www.nobilitydoll.com/index.php


The prices vary from company, size (some can be as tall as 3ft (90cm)), weight, style (full sets, already strung, additional items, faceups, etc), and type of material. Your best ones are made of resin, but your cheaper ones can be PVS or ABS plastic (they will tell you). Prices are scary...BUT...it is worth it. And a wonderful creative outlet! I love them all. I can change their eyes, faces, clothes, shoes, hair, hands, feet, give them fangs, elf ears, eye lashes, and just about everything else. You are not limited with them.



once I got my first one, I was hooked! I had been saving for Lucius since March! he was $935 with shipping. I had to put him on layaway since there are only 40 of him in the world, and it was hard to get him from retailers. We had to go directly to the company through an American retailer. My first ones were LOADS cheaper, and I only got Lucius because there was something about him that just drew me to him. My others are no more than $250 without clothing. I got two for my birthday (one with my own money and the other was a surprise).

And no. I am FAR from rich. I had to work my tail off to get these dollies. >.< But I dont regret a penny spent! If you like to see my other family members, here is my myspace!

http://www.myspace.com/rogueriley777


I also post some stuff on Tutorials and stuff for faces and stuff. My manba faceup is up there! ^.^ Theres also photostories, which are always fun!

You can check out here too:

http://www.denofangels.com/forums/



But not all of them are that pricy either. It depends where you get them, what you get and what you get with it. Really, its the shipping that kills you anyway. >.< im done with adding to my family for now cause I have to get Carlisle finished. I need to get his second head a faceup and a body and clothes and still get the othr head clothes.... Poor doc... Crying or Very sad Once I save money, Im going to get a tan skinned doll from SOOM (crosses fingers) and turn him into a Seenta!!! ^.^ Loads of fun!!!

But even if the prices scare you, please check em out! They are great to look at and learn about!

OH!!! Here are some places where you get get the dolls cheaper and without the killer shipping. And Bobobie/Resinsoul has cheap dolls. I got my 70cm Long for $223 with shipping. They also are great for people new into the hobby.

http://www.resinsoul.com/



Oh!!! Please let me know what you think of my family!!! And Fuyuki's new face hasnt been posted yet. Crying or Very sad I havent gotten round to pay attention to him since I got Lucius (who is an Elfdoll USLimited40 Red Vampire version. He came as a full set with extra hands and such, so that is why he was s9o much. If he were just the doll and eyes, then he would have been only about $538 or so.

just never buy one because on three things. haha lol!

1. they would make me jealous. >/////>;
2. they are WAY too much money. xDDD
3. it would more than likely scare me ;O;

lol I understand all those actually! And I have this phobia of dolls...but for some reason...I find comfort from these particular ones...Not like those creepy porcilan (sp) dolls whos eyes follow you everywhere.... THATS nightmarish. *cringe*

And yes. VERY pricy, but very worth it. AND you can always sell them back more than twice their worth on the second hand market if you ever need the money. But I dont plan on selling mine. It would be like giving away my children. Even though I could sell Lucius 'as is' for $1500 in about a year.

Couldnt do it. But still...can be tempting...I can pay off my college fund that way. But I couldnt. lol

LUCIUS: Hello. My name is Lord Lucius Vlad De la Faye. Pleasure to meet you. This is my son, Fuyuki. We are both Vampyres.


FUYUKI: Dont...Touch...me. *snarl*


LUCIUS: Now, just relax my boy. Im not going to do any harm to you. Just want to give these girls something to squeal about.
FUYUKI: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


FUYUKI: WHGAT THE ARF DO YOU THINK YOURE DOING!!!!!!


FUYUKI: *unintelligible protesting*


FUYUKI: MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *scream of protest*


FUYUKI: *surrender* *groan* I. Hate. You.
LUCIUS: *sexy grin* Now, now. Dont be like that. We now have fangirls.

Not a fan of yaoi or implied incest but I'm not offended enough to demand it's removal. It's just not to my tastes, at all.

I know. Im not a yaoi/incest fan either, but this came to my head when Lucius fell on top of Fuyuki when I was trying to string him, and I was like....

...

Twisted Evil

Just for kicks and giggles. I wish Bellflower was easier to work with, but her clothing is sooo heavy. I wish Chaste would be finished so that I could get her with Lucius. (Still waiting on her body and clothes....And her face needs done). Im itching for a romantic photostory but I only have one girl...except for Shigue>>>but she's smaller than Barbie (shudder) and would look weird next to Lucius who is nearly up to my waist in height sweatdrop . *sigh* I wish I wasnt a boy-fanatic...Im not a fan of most of the girl molds. They all have huge chests, and dont have clothes to fit. Im tired of sewing for these little buggers.


I am running out of ideas....and it has come to this. I am working on a manba girl though...Though it may turn into a seenta before long...AGain, not fan of girl molds. I will probably mod her into a guy soon enough. Trying to keep the dremmel and sand paper away from Bellflower....... *GROAN*

*facepalm**goes to work on improving own hairstyles before going to Iowa*

Im surprised no one hates me by now silent ...I tend to talk and ramble a lot...and about nothing important either.... sweatdrop

Well I could always say TL;DR to your posts but that'd be rude. Besides, I don't mind reading them and if I find a post boring a skip it. It doesn't make me hate the person lol And my God, up to your waist?! That's huge for a doll!

I am always self-conscious when it comes to forums and internet and stuff. Its hard to really throw an emotion or thought across. Sometimes I feel that some people base others on what they post all the time, or how they post something. It can be understandable in many situations. I think that jokes are the hardest to do sometimes though. >.< Or sarcasm. But I dont use much sarcasm.

Yeah. They can get pretty big. The largest of the ABJD is 90cm. I want one...clothes are cheaper. lol Those ones are sold by Angel of Dream. The 90cm actually scare me though. There is something about them that appears too human when next to someone. Its creepy.... I dont think I will get one bigger than my Carlisle at 70cm. I have a 26cm, 27cm, 61cm, 63cm, and 70cm. The rest are floating heads who stay locked in my closet cause they are creepy withouth bodies... lols

Oh! Here is my Sho! He is one of the 11 Gackt heads out there. Needs new faceup. I HATE the one he has.



Ok. Thats my last one! Sorry. I am spamming him everywhere. Just got him in and I am LOVING him! The proportions on his face are as perfect as resin can get to the real Gackt's face. I named him Sho cause I dont want him to be Gackt for personal reasons. >.<


What is your FAVORITE hobby?
