Answer:

did you miss the part about how I scroll past posts that I don’t enjoy when I’m in the BJD tag? or did I miss something and this is you letting everyone know you’re the officially appointed BJD Tag Police?

BJD

little-house-of-kurian said: what is bjd?

it refers to Ball-Jointed Dolls, sometimes referred to as “Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls” (or ABJD), since the ones that first became popular were made by doll-makers in Asia.

here’s the Wikipedia article about it with more info.

though this article makes a point of stating that BJD are dolls with Ball and Socket joints, I’d argue that this distinction is less important than the persistence of the common name would suggest. Many “BJD” companies these days use different types of joints for the points of articulation on their dolls, sometimes using a combination of joints that includes the ball and socket type, and sometimes not using this type of joint at all.

also, they left Iplehouse out of their list of BJD makers—my personal favorite. though most of the early BJD’s did have an Anime-esque style (as mentioned on the wikipedia article), many have ventured into the uncanny valley of more realistic sculpts since Iplehouse blazed the trail for this segment of the hobby w/the introduction of their EID (Elder Iplehouse Doll) line of dolls.

dekomori-san asked: I think your blog is amazing but please refrain from tagging non bjds in the bjd tag thank you


Answer:

hahaha NO

EDIT: 

1) the absurdly restrictive criteria for “what is a BJD?” that Den of Angels set up are not the law of the universe. if I consider a doll to have articulation similar to a “BJD”, then IMO it is a BJD.
2) the BJD tag is full of so many things that I personally find annoying or irrelevant, but I use my scroll wheel to move past them w/o giving them any undue attention. ;o)
