Archived doll webpages

gone but (not) forgotten

  1. Armeleialand - The blog of former DoA moderator Armeleia. Possibly current owner. Lots of juicy history lives archived here. Try looking at the tag "DoA Scandals". The site appears to be "hacked" in later archives. A lot of phrases are replaced with stuff about pharmaceuticals and I doubt Armeleia had anything to do with that. My favorite post is Museum of Copies and Inspiration.
  2. linuxhacker.ru - English and Russian. Disappeared rather recently, but last updated in 2018. Includes dollpa photos! Here is their flickr. Possibly based out of Tennessee.
  3. elphsnt's My Dolls and Bears - English and Japanese. Japan based collector with many beautiful Volks girls whose names all begin with the letter A. I really did like this site but she seems to have called it quits on blogging.

English Blogs

Photos on social media

Some Japanese hashtags and my attempt at translation. I don't speak any Japanese btw. Try searching on Flickr, Twitter, and Instagram. Many dealers and artists also have their own hashtag that buyers will post under. Many Super Dollfie sculpts also have their own hashtag such as #SD_f_63 or #SD63番 (numbered sculpts) or #SDリズ (sculpts with names). There's a few variations on the format though.
