First of all, a little FAQ for those ones who are curious and want to ask some basic questions about my dolls
1. What kind of dolls are they ? Where do they come from ?
- My dolls belong to ABJD ( Asian Ball Jointed Dolls ) group. This means- they have ball-joints and they were made in Asian countries- like Japan, Korea or China. All of my dolls were made of urethane resin- a kind of 'artistic' urethane resin which is different from a 'technical' resin used to make pipes etc. This resin is very fragile- it can be broken easily so You have to be very careful and do not allow the doll to fall from the table etc. because it can be damaged.
Those dolls are very often called 'dollfie'. It is because of the fact that in 1998 in Japan, Volks brothers made their first ABJDs made of urethane resin, they were named 'Super Dollfie'. So because of this all of ABJDs made of urethane resin are commonly called 'dollfie', but the truth is- the original 'Dollfie' comes ONLY from Volks doll factory
2. Where and how can I buy such doll, and what is their price ?
- Here is the link to the list of doll factories:
You can browse it and check doll factories and also doll models and their prices.
In general, You can buy doll through an online shop. You just enter the doll shop website and fill the 'order form' and after it is completed, you pay for doll using PayPal or credit card, sometimes third option - the bank transfer is also available.
The second possibility is to buy the doll through E-bay.
3. What are the sizes of the dolls and how can I customize them ?
- In general ABJDs are divided in 3 main groups
---> SD sized- this category includes dolls about 55-60 cm tall and taller
---> MSD sized- this category includes dolls about 40-45 cm tall
---> Tiny sized- this category includes dolls about 35 cm and smaller
- You can customize the doll by painting its face ( if You can't do it by yourself , You can order a factory-made make-up or You can send the doll's head to skilled artist who can make a pretty doll make-up ) You can change the doll's wig ( those dolls are bald, and their hair is in wig-form ), You can change the doll's eyes ( those dolls' heads are able to be opened and so that You can change their eyes that are placed in the eyeholes ), You can also change the dolls clothes and shoes. Some of doll factories offer the 'option parts' system- this means You can buy separate hand pieces or feet pieces- for example You can buy hands in different shapes, or feet that are adjusted to wear high heeled shoes etc. Volks doll company do offer the most extended 'option parts' system called FCS ( Full Choice System ) Please go here to read more about Volks dolls and FCS: [link]
4. What ABJD owners do with their dolls ? Do they ' play ' with them, or do they 'collect' them ?
- ABJD owners divide in two main groups. First group is composed of 'creative collectors' - people who love customize their dols by their own, they also enjoy creating doll stories, also they give their doll personality and also a special name or even a nickname. Those owners also love making photos of their dolls and they like participating in Doll-Meetings where owners bring their dolls and they ' play ' with all of those dolls together
Second group are 'typical collectors' - people who buy the doll only in order to display it in the glass box or on special shelf, some of them keep the dolls in their original boxes. Those people more often buy very expensive Limited Edition dolls, which are usually OOAK dolls ( = Only One of A Kind )
Of course there are people who sometimes ' play ' with their dolls but in general they keep them displayed in the special case / shelf /etc.

Turriger usually loves peace and silence. She enjoys walking through te deep forrest, listening to the birds singing, leaves rustling, walking through the places which people rarely attend ... walking through the graveyards and watching the graves, thinking about how fragile life is and how short is the life ... it is just a 'while' isn't it ?

Because of this powers, people think she is insane, especially as far as talking with spirits is concerned.

One day , there was a spirit who told her about the fact that she is wrong , and it advised her to go and look for the other people who also wield supernatural powers. Because 'ordinary' people will never understand nor accept her. And livng alone leads to self-destruction , and her destiny is not to die young but to use her powers to do something 'special' , something which will make the world 'better' ... So she was looking for and looking and finally she found a group of other 'odd' people ( in fact not only people, but some elves , too ) They become friends and Turriger moved to their living place, and they started to live together. But soon Destiny will give Turriger a great 'surprise ' - the most precious feeling in the world ... the LOVE ...
