About dollfies.

Hi there
Decided to create this thread as I feel that many people might be wondering whats dollfie all about. So I shall share with you all what I know about dollfies

Introduction on dollfies
Dollfies are dolls.[ not babie dolls! ] They are known as Super Dollfie/ SD / Ball joint dolls / BJD. They are made of polyurethane resin, a porcelain-like, hard, dense plastic.
They are designed in a style which is both realistic and influenced by anime.
Various parts of thier body are ball joint for articulation, and are strung together with a thick elastic cord.

The term "dollfie" is a contraction of the words "doll" and "figure". The original Dollfie dolls are Barbie sized, and the term Super Dollfie was introduced to distinguish the larger resin dolls.

"Super Dollfie", or even just "Dollfie", is sometimes erroneously used as a generic term to refer to BJDs (ball-jointed dolls) made by other companies, but it remains a registered trademark of Volks.

Super Dollfie dolls are made to be easy to customize. The hair is a wig that can easily be changed. The head can be opened to change the eyes and adjust the stringing. The face paint can be removed and the head repainted which is also known as face up. Optional hands and feet are available, and heads and other body parts are removable and interchangeable. The resin parts themselves can be carved or sanded to reshape them.

The different sizes of dollfie,
1 - Super Dollfie, or SD, are about 55 cm tall, while the original version was slightly taller at 57 cm. Sometimes referred to as Super Dollfie 10 or SD10 to specifically refer to the size versus the whole line of dolls.

2 - Super Dollfie 13 / SD13/ 1/3 dollfie are more mature and slightly taller than the plain Super Dollfie, SD13 boys are 60cm, and girls 57 cm. They were an improvement on the original SD body, with less prominent ball joints.

3 - Mini Super Dollfie/ MSD / 1/4 dollfie , are more child-like and shorter, about 42cm tall.

4 - Yo-SD / 1/6 dollfie ,are younger looking than MSD, they are 26.5 cm tall

The standard names SD, SD13 and MSD, or just "mini", are sometimes used to describe the size of BJDs from other companies as well.


How much does a dollfie cost?

Dollfie, as I mentioned arnt the normal barbie dolls you see in toy stores. Each size of dollfie has different price. The bigger sized it is, the more expensive it is. It also depends on the brand which you are purchasing from. The mould itself for 1/3 [ Head, full body, without clothes eyes and face up. ] can cost from 400+ up to 1thousand [ Singapore dollars. ]


Hope this might help you understand a little more about dollfies =]

Dollfies do not come cheap so please do take very good care of them. Do not smash them on the floor etc.
