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? ^^
