Unofficial BJD Reference Sites

Blogs

  1. 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.
  2. Amaranth's Castaways - Blog of a former recast supporter with lots of articles on identifying recasts as well as issues with confidence, selling, and consumerism.
  3. BJD Life - Asenva's blog. She makes a lot of Youtube videos. She's always upbeat and mature and I can really appreciate that!
  4. たいたんnoページ - Japanese. I could but this under photographers, but it's really an event report blog. Hasn't been updated since 2016.
  5. linuxhacker.ru (archived) - English and Russian. Disappeared rather recently, but last updated in 2018. Includes dollpa photos! Here is their flickr
  6. Pepito - Japanese. Lots of nendo and Volks doll blogging. Very cute! Has a few beautiful one-off girls.
  7. nachidiary - Japanese. Owns the only SD Michele I have ever liked.
  8. Armeleialand (archived) - 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.
  9. Ma belle lune - Japanese. Beautiful men in thin lacy gowns.

Old school websites

many of these have been lost to time! Most went with the larger banner style instead of buttons. some are actually very old blogs and i need to rearrange but all of these are still up as of the time i added them.

  1. Val's World - Written by a doll collector who passed away in 2020.
  2. orderhouse-M - JP. Sculptor? Photographer? idk I can't read
  3. Mother of Changes - Tons of photos!

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.
