1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

  • Name story:
    When I was in my senior year of high school, I went to the BJD panel at an anime convention to admire all the dollies I wouldn't be able to afford for a couple years. There was one person there, a gal from Iowa named Kathy Jessen, who had brought along a doll that she needed to sell for college costs. She didn't reeeally wanna sell a doll, but this one was second hand, with a faceup she didn't do and a couple stains from an old tattoo that she'd removed. A white skin Island Doll Lilith.

    I knew it was a long shot, but I decided to ask her if she would consider letting me - a high school student she had never met, with no references, from a different state - do a payment plan via check in the mail whenever the hell I scrounged up enough money because oh yeah I was also unemployed!

    I saved up fifty dollars at a time, passed the cash to my mother, and asked her to mail a check for my payment. At one point, my mother added a note with the check. She got Kathy to contact her and set up a deal behind my back. My mother paid of the doll and set my money aside. Kathy pretended to continue receiving my payments while my mother pretended to continue sending them.

    The day of my graduation party, there was a big box on the table waiting for me. It was the doll, and an envelope of the payments that didn't get mailed. I named her Jess in honor of the kind person willing to work with me in the first place.
