Welcome to /doll/!
/doll/ is a board to discuss all dolls and doll-like toys. We welcome dolls of all materials, origins, and purposes with limited exception. This can range from ball-jointed dolls to porcelain dolls to even puppets and figurines.
With this in mind, you are not allowed to discuss using child-like dolls for sexual purposes in any capacity. Discussion of using mature dolls for sexual purposes is discouraged but permitted in passing. Doll nudity or injury modification is permitted as long as any graphic imagery or particularly vivid discussion is spoilered. Additionally, you are not allowed to discuss controversial or inflammatory topics such as politics or religion.
We Have Friends
/robowaifu/ is a wonderful board focused on iron fistedly making your dream girl a reality. If you're interested in having a robotic companion of any sort or just want to see what they're all about, you should check them out!

Shizuka Miura. Poetess, singer and doll maker
Hi dolls enthusiasts, just want to share this with you.
Shizuka Miura (三浦静香) was a Japanese doll-maker and musician who created many works of unearthly beauty during her lifetime.
An apprentice of the legendary doll-maker Katan Amano (天野可淡), Shizuka started her artistic career making ball-jointed dolls. Then, under the influence of her husband Maki Miura (三浦真樹), a seasoned guitarist who had played in such notable acts as Les Rallizes Dénudés and Fushitsusha, she began writing songs based on her poems. Before long, with the help of Maki and a couple of other underground musicians, around the frontwoman emerged a band — simply called Shizuka (静香).
Few officially remains available from Shizuka’s doll work as she likely never had an artbook published. Still, many images of her dolls were uploaded to the Web and, in 2018, were in exposition in Ginza, Tokyo, by the doll gallery Maria Cuore (マリアの心臓). Furthermore, Shizuka was a member of a mysterious gothic doll club named “Glamorous Area”, which existed from 2001 to 2010.
I discovered the musician then as I was looking to know more about her I figured she was a quite recognized doll maker in Japan. Few can be found about this past activity expect some photography here and there :
If you understand Japanese, you can maybe find more here: https://www.mariacuore.jp/exhibition/
As you can see, her dolls can be quite creepy and highly expressive. You can see other pictures used on promotional material and cover of some PSF compilation records.
Shizuka's music is absolutely wonderful, filled with powerful emotions. Here is a live excerpt where you can see some of her dolls.

(Bi?)Monthly Doll Club
Anon! Your doll's been feeling a little lonely lately. Why don't you take her down, pose her, and post a few quick photos of her ITT?
This thread is to help us enjoy our dolls instead of letting them gather dust. The club activity is simple: Get (one of) your doll(s), change a piece of their clothing (it doesn't have to be their entire outfit) or an accessory/wig/etc., pose them, and post a photo of them ITT. It doesn't matter how small the change or shitty the photo, the point is to enjoy spending a little time with your doll. Lewd BJDs are welcome too.
The recommended frequency is monthly or bimonthly. If you have one or two dolls, consider participating at least once a month. If you have more than two dolls, consider participating at least twice a month.
I'll start us off with Ellie here. She's an Angel Philia doll who I haven't decided on a proper name for yet. I changed her out of cute blue frilly Volks dress into something a little more Angel Philiaish. I was surprised by how cute she looked in it and ended up taking more photos than I intended using proper lights and so on.
Your turn, Anon!

Doll Backstory/Product Writing
What do you think of the personalities, stories, and other such writing some companies put forth to help sell their products? Do you have a story or personality you've given to your dolls yourself?
Does this help sell it to you?
Or just share notable ones you've seen. I'm amused by this one, as it first reminds me of Deus Ex, but then is more anime and reminds me of SaiKano (or something like that, saw it 10 years ago). It's kind of really silly. Simpler ones endear me to the dolls more than complex ones.

I have something like pic related and always wonder if I can turn it to a more human form by sculpting it. It's a wood articulated figurine used to learn drawing.
I'm not that good at sculpting but as they are cheap I woud not mind trying.
Do you guys ever attempted at making your own dolls from A to Z, like sculpting it from wood or 3D printed parts ?
What tools would you use and what parts should I buy separately (eyes, wigs...)
Let us know, even your failed attempt can be some good teaching points for anyone willing to try this.

Nijiura Doll Threads
I'm not really a dollfag, but I do think dolls are cute and I want to help save this board from annihilation.
Did you know that the residents of Futaba Channel's Nijiura may board host regular doll threads, where the "dollaki" all post pictures of their dolls?
Did you know that there's a site out there archiving all of these threads and images?
is an archive of the daily 10PM doll threads on Nijiura may, and goes all the way back to 2006.
is an archive for the other doll threads on Nijiura may, and currently goes back to 2017 (it used to go back much further, but the years prior to 2017 have been removed due to lack of disk space).
is a small wiki maintained by the dollaki that contains various guides and other bits of information about dolls and the doll threads.
is a cute doll clock website they made that changes to a different doll picture every minute.

How many dolls in your household, Anons?
I have four girls and one more is on her way. One of the things I like about dolls is that they don't take up as much space as figure collecting and you get a lot more fun from them, so I'm trying to keep the family down to a more manageable size as much as I can. I don't see myself ever being someone who has double digit counts of dolls... but then I never thought I'd get more than two.
