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.

hip joints

Jan 24, 2016

    1. Hi,
      I am going to jump in way over my head and try my hand at a BJD. I see there is a load of info on heads, not so much detailed info on joints. I like the look of the reverse hip joint. But the regular hip joint is the one predominately used. My question is do they both give the same amount of mobility and stability? I live in a small rural area, I don't have the opportunity to look or play with any actual bjds much less different types. I even had to order the fimo professional online ;) . I have just been pouring over all the photos and tutorials online. Also is a double hip joint a better way to go?
    2. If you're thinking of making your own BJD, you sadly won't be finding much info here (it's been removed years ago).
      You'll likely find the answers to your questions on The Joint, a bjd-making forum.
    3. Satyrsmoon is correct, we do not allow discussions of making dolls on DoA; The Joint would be a much better place for that.
      But as this is off topic, I will be locking this thread.
