Ball-Jointed Doll (BJD) Panels

Introduction to Ball Jointed Dolls
Either unbelievably beautiful, or unbelievably creepy (and sometimes both at once), increasingly, you see these dolls at conventions, but may not know much about them. This panel is an introduction to BJDs. We will talk about some of the different types of ball joined dolls, where you can get them, and how you can customize the dolls to make them your own.

Now that you’ve got your Ball Jointed Doll (BJD), how do you care for it? This panel will talk about basic maintenance procedures for doll owners. We’ll discuss (and demonstrate) stringing, suading, and wiring for posing enhancement.

Advanced Topics in Ball Jointed Dolls
If you are comfortable restringing your dolls and feel ready for the next step of customization, this is the panel for you. We’ll discuss various types of additive and subtractive modifications for BJDs, painting techniques and the required safety measures.
