Dream of Doll D.O.T. Calla

Dream of Doll D.O.T. Calla

I really have no interest in dolls as previously mentioned in my one of my older posts but something about Dollfies and other BJDs like the beautiful Calla here makes me think otherwise.

You see, my choice of toys while growing up are not exactly normal suitable for a girl. I think I did have a couple of disjointed Barbie dolls and some plushies but my fondest memories as a child include playing with robots, Lego and toy cars, watching tokusatsu and mecha anime. ^^; Now that I’m older, I became exposed to these types of dolls and their design intricacies and points of articulation make them all the more fascinating to me.

I found the link to Calla while I was looking for something in my Netvibes account. I have bookmarked her page a long time ago because I find her hauntingly beautiful. Calla is part of Dream of Doll’s Dream of Teenager line of full-sized ball-jointed dolls from Korea.

If you’re interested to know more about Calla, you may may want to check out her page on D.O.D.’s website. I bet it would be great to adopt Calla but I’m not sure if I’m ready to spend more than US$500 for these dolls though. I know that it won’t stop there, you have to buy clothes and shoes and wigs and other items for your daughter (or son) which can get really expensive.

Are you a BJD collector? Perhaps you’d like to share some information about these pretty little things? ^^

    I never knew these dolls were so expensive, but I guess it’s to put together all the little parts that make up one.

  2. BioToxic says:

    Sometimes these dolls can look fantastic, and then other times creepy. I like reading about them on figure.fm and seeing other peoples photos. But I doubt I would ever be prepared to put down the amount of money required to get one myself.

    I love how they look but the price and the attitudes of the community turn me away. I don’t really see myself buying one any time soon. I’ll just enjoy the pictures from others on the sidelines. I would buy a cheap one and be ridiculed for it XD

      See now, that’s the funny thing.
      I don’t know ANYBODY who would make fun of you for buying a cheaper doll. I personally love some Bobobie + Resinsoul doll sculpts that are around $150-$170 for a girl like Calla. And they are great quality! I have a “cheap” Abio Angel Yi from China and I love him. <3 I bought him used for $200 with extras.

      Calla is the most expensive doll I'm saving up for though. But she is the first one I saw and she is what got me into BJDs in the first place! She is a must for me!

      Oh look…I've been ranting again.

        Hey there Oh! from Illinois. Thanks for dropping by.
        It’s okay to rant, but not too much. ^^; Hope you’ll get your own Calla soon.

    Darn! She is beautiful! Given the size and elegance, I don’t mind US500 for a doll like that :)

  5. Yi says:

    Wow, she’s really really beautiful. Love her eyes and her lips and her everything. I should really start saving up for a BJD. They’re pricey, but they’re so incredible.

  6. chubbybots says:

    She really looks beautiful from the photos! But I don’t think i’ll be forking out $500 for any one of them….still prefer my other little nendo size daughters :P

  7. xine says:

    @Nopy: Yeah I guess those articulated parts and the design itself make it expensive.

    @BioToxic: I agree some dolls can look creepy sometimes.

    @Pesocom: If ever I’m going to buy one, I guess it would be later more than sooner. ^^; I enjoy looking at BJD collectors’ photos too, especially when they dress them up with beautiful clothes and stuff.

    @softz: I’ll wait for the pictures if ever you decided to buy one for yourself. ^^

    @Yi: I think you can customize how you want these dolls to look. Calla’s eyes and lips are really lovely indeed. Hope you’ll get your BJD soon.

    @chubbybots: BJDs are beautiful but Nendos are crazy cute and you can bring them anywhere without much hassle. I guess if you carry BJDs around, people especially the uninitiated, might have the tendency to stare. Lol.

    she is a beauty! im more into dollfie dreams but there are a few others like this one who can just capture your attention very easy.

    i took the leap and am very happy with with my DD Yoko. but your right, it opens up a whole new world……….. of spending XD lol if you love your BJD, your priorities will shift after you get your first; imagine only collecting static figures then jumping into those irresistibly cute nendos! obssession may take over :P

    but they really are amazing and lovely, worth the investment ^^

    she is beautiful…

    but I’m still kinda scared from her gaze, just like she really alive, not like the figma.

  10. divinelight says:

    oh yeah, I forget.
    let’s exchange links, we haven’t do that right.

    I’ll put yours in my web

    I recently made the jump into dolls, my first was Dollfie Dream Sakura – character from the anime Fate/stay night. I couldn’t be happier about the $550+ I spent for her.

    I can’t say they are for everyone but if you find you have an interest check out the posts on a site like Figure.fm – the people there are extremely friendly and happy to help with any questions you have.

    It’s not a cheap investment but one thing to keep in mind is the price of the dolls don’t really drop much and frequently go up in value. If you want to buy a Dollfie Dream Saber on auction now you will easily spend over $2,000 for one. I’m not saying it’s good as just an investment but if you decide later it’s not what you want, you should be able to get some or all of your money back.
