Want to get a doll

I've been wanting to get a BJD.
Have always been looking and am saving up now.
But I've questions to ask.

1) Is there too much difference in getting a 2nd hand doll and a 1st hand doll ?
2) What's the difference between a "new body" & "senior body " ?
3) What are the difference in a BJD or AOD etc ?
& are there other things I should look out for ?

Re: Want to get a doll

I am very new to the hobby, will try to answer your questions to the best of my knowledge or opinion.

1) Is there too much difference in getting a 2nd hand doll and a 1st hand doll ?
It seems to me that the price difference is very small, at most one or two hundred cheaper hence I would rather you get it new. Also having a new doll means that the doll has no history, you will create her/his history.
2) What's the difference between a "new body" & "senior body " ? Sorry I can't help with this question, I dunno what it means.
3) What are the difference in a BJD or AOD etc ? BJD is ball jointed doll, AOD is just one of the bjd brands "Angel of Dreams"
4)\Are there other things I should look out for ? Most price listed are for nude dolls without faceup, clothes, shoes, wig and shipping. most eyes and wigs(if given) will be random in colors. Lastly, I honestly feel that maintaining this hobby is not going to be cheap and you have to commit to make it work. Erm.. That is all I know

Re: Want to get a doll

hhisprincess >> 1) depends. 2)idk 3) BJD is a common term used to address the dolls. AOD, DZ, AF, AA,... are short forms of the doll companies. 4) there's always a faq thread in some forums (^^) spend some time reading them, they helps alot.

2) did you see this on a website or something? maybe you'd like to post the link here so we can take a look? according to my understanding, a senior body could mean a mature body. which means [for girls] that their boobs will uh, be fuller. =X

Re: Want to get a doll

senior body probably mean the body it started out with, new body perhaps is the
newer version of the body ?

A few stuff to note, is the kind of resin your doll is, like french and normal.
For french, it's better to keep away from sunlight ( although normal too ) to prevent it from yellowing.
Should bath it often ... restring it

Re: Want to get a doll

not really bath it as in throw the whole doll into the water.

you clean the doll with magic sponge(can get from daiso) + water, but don't rub the face with the sponge too hard because the face up will drop. and only when he/she is dirty, because magic sponge acts as a very very very mild sand paper against resin, if use too much not good.

keep doll away from sunlight as much as possible regardless normal or french resin.

as for restringing, it's normally done when the doll's string is loose. (^^) not everytime/always/often

Re: Want to get a doll

if you buying second hand doll, u need to check very carefully be4 buying. cos sometimes the doll may be scratched or a small chip of resin may already dropped out thus the owner does not want it anymore.etc. i also planning to get one in future but not now as it is hard work maintaining the doll and also the fee =X
as for restring u can ask for help in forums like dollypost.com
online also have instructions on how to take care of dolls. you need to think very carefully and know how to take care of the doll be4 buying one.

Chikage94 added 5 Minutes and 5 Seconds later...

you also can go denofangels.com ^^

Re: Want to get a doll

this is the forum url for DOA:
http://www.denofangels.com/forums/

2nd hand doll, to check:
any scratches
signs of yellowing
any chipped off
face up's condition, if any
any cracks
the cost of the doll if got 1st hand, compare with the 2nd hand, see if it is worth it.'

i think that's all

Re: Want to get a doll

1) Is there too much difference in getting a 2nd hand doll and a 1st hand doll ?
There isn't much difference so long as the doll has been maintained properly.
Some people specially buy second hand dolls, or buy dolls to sell second hand, because of face up or modifications.

2) What's the difference between a "new body" & "senior body " ?
New body is simply a term used for a company when they release a new body type.
Senior body, in most BJD companies, means a doll that's taller than the normal one.
For example, for 1/4 dolls, the normal length is about 40 cm, but a senior one would be about 45cm.
Same with 1/3 dolls, the normal length is about 60 cm, but a senior body can be about 65cm-70cm.

3) What are the difference in a BJD or AOD etc ?
BJD stands for ball-jointed dolls. AOD is a doll company name, angel of dream.

& are there other things I should look out for ?
Do read up more on them before purchasing one.
Like how to clean them, how to put in the eyes and adjust, what to do and what not to do.
