Hello, this is my first post on DoA. If this question is on another thread please feel free to delete this one. I would love a link to it though. ^^ So I'm new to BJD and I've been researching as many of the different companies making them as possible. They all seem to offer the face-up option for an additional price with the purchase of the doll and I was wondering if most people think this is the best way to go provided one has the money at the time. I'm asking because I noticed that a lot of people seem to get their face-ups done by other artists after the doll is in their possession. I am looking for a doll to to make historic costumes for and I want a very natural looking face-up. Will the company be willing to do something like that or would someone like me be better off getting an outside artist?
