Frequently asked questions
What is BJD ？（什么是BJD）
How do I choose my BJD? （什么样的BJD适合我）
BJ Dolls come in many types and sizes. As these dolls are custom made and extremely special, we recommend that you do some research first into the various options and artists in order to pick your favourite. Some things to consider： sex of the doll (male/female), preferred height, eye/hair colour, and most importantly your preferred doll type (do you like angelic dolls？Michiveous? serious? devious? sweet？ etc...). Different artists often embody a personality into their creations, so it is all about which doll speaks the most to you. If you really have a hard time choosing, please contact us and we would be more than happy to make some recommendations for you!
What is the price range for BJD?（BJD的价格区间）
BJ Dolls are frequently considered collector's items. Its custom made nature, and the special care taken by creators in the design and rendering of each doll means that its price far exceeds regular dolls from toy stores. The price of the doll is often based on the height of the doll with 1/8 (roughly 14.5cm) dolls to dolls above 70cm ranging from $150USD to $900USD. If this is your first time entering the BJD world, we recommend that you purchase a smaller doll. Note that currently on the market there are counterfeit dolls that are available for much cheaper prices, we caution that buyers be careful when making their purchases through other venues other than our website to check and ensure the doll's authenticity. Counterfeit dolls have much lower quality with poor balance and their counterfeit status is visible to experienced collectors.
Why took so long to make BJD?（BJD的工期是多久）
Because each BJDoll is made to order and hand crafted by artists or their production companies, it takes an average of 2-6 months for an ordered doll to complete production. For coveted dolls, there frequently is a wait list which prolongs the production time. "Naked" dolls will be faster to produce than dolls that come with their makeup drawn on. For any questions on the wait time of a particular doll, please feel free to contact us!
Why took so long to make BJD? （为什么BJD的工期那么久）
Because BJDolls are handcrafted artwork - including prototype sculpting, molding, coloring etc...production companies and artists are not able to mass produce these dolls to meet demand. Dolls are made to order and frequently buyers are on a wait list to receive their dolls. For those of you that cannot wait, we recommend checking out our "Adopt Me" page to purchase a premade or preowned doll.
Do I have other options if I don't want to wait too long?（如果不想等待有没有现货可以选择）
For those of you that do not wish to wait, we recommend checking out our "Adoption Market"（Located in forum） to purchase a premade/preowned doll. You can also contact us with your requirements and we can help you find a doll that has a shorter wait time. We can also reach out to the production company or artist to check for any customized dolls that were purchased by others but not collected (example payments were incomplete) that may be available for sale.
How long will take to get my doll's makeup done?（化妆的妆期需要多久）
It generally takes 10-30 working days, and different makeup artists have different time requirements. Please contact us for more information.
