Asian Ball-Joint Dolls
June 13, 2007
Oh, what would my life be without Flickr?
I’ve been meaning to write about these gorgeous dolls for a long time. I find this trend really fascinating. I noticed these beautiful dolls some time ago, and added some of them into my favorites, and then I realized there’s a whole industry surrounding them. It’s a little like the Blythe craze, which also never ceases to amaze me, but I don’t think you can buy Blythe in separate parts.
Apparently, these Asian dolls are very expensive (I haven’t researched too extensively, but from what I can see the basic dolls are about 200 dollars and more), and people buy their skeleton (yes, it freaks me out too! See this one also.), and then they add eyes, hair, make up, clothing, etc. There are many types of dolls, but I think the prettiest one I’ve seen so far is the Latti doll. You can see her pics here and here .
She’s so adorable! Isn’t she?
Laura has this wonderful doll, she crochets and knits dresses and outfits for them, and she also takes wonderful photographs – thanks, Laura, for letting me use your pics!
