About Den of Angels

Mission Statement

Den of Angels (DoA) is an international community dedicated to the appreciation of resin ball-jointed dolls and the artisans who make them. We provide:

  • a place for enthusiasts to share their love of BJDs through discussion and photography.
  • a resource for information about ball-jointed dolls and their customization.
  • a marketplace for buying, selling and trading BJD-related items.

We are proudly pro-artist and are dedicated to preventing the spread of recast dolls in our hobby.


DoA started in May 2002 as a Yahoo!Group, but outgrew that format and became a forum in 2004. In 2015, we moved from vBulletin forum software to XenForo.
