Recast BJD Haven, new forum

Recast BJD Haven, new forum

Recast BJD Haven facebook community closed last spring. The subsequent group Resin BJD Haven was shut down last week, by facebook for ‘copyright infringement’. The quick group we put back up, was removed shortly thereafter.

We decided not to do another group on facebook because of the limitations we’d have on their network. Instead we’ve opened a forum. This is a Recast Community, legits, as always, are welcome.

Join us there!

Faceup Artists, Recast Price List, Acronyms

Recently we started Featuring Recast-Friendly Faceup Artist Interviews on Recast BJD Haven. One of the big questions I receive, is ‘who does faceups for recasts?’. We have running lists on both the Haven and the Underground facebook groups.. But we decided to start doing interviews and featuring some of our favorites. They are located all over the world, so over time, you should be able to find someone in your general area.

Steven and Luo’s Price list has been updated. They’ve received several new dolls, so it’s worth checking out to see if they now have a doll that’s been on your ‘want list’. Remember, the dolls they have are not company dolls. They are just recast copies.

I have been waiting months to get this list up for everyone. When a new person joins the bjd hobby, they can find themselves swimming in a pool of abbreviations and acronyms – and we sometimes forget what that’s like. So, when your friend joins the hobby and wants to know what things mean – send them to our BJD Abbreviations | Acronyms page and tell them to bookmark it. They’ll be glad to have it for easy referencing.

Most recently added to the Haven website, is a full list spreadsheet with all available recast dolls and who has them. Thanks goes to Anne for putting together and continuing to maintain this growing list: Full List of Recast Available Dolls

Here on ResinMuse, we have Recast Little Ante, NP, made by S/L up for adoption. She is looking for a new home and ready to travel.

I recently received my Legit Fairyland Minifee Moe line Rix.. she’s adorable. I love the body! Ashley has three m-line mnf, two legit, and one recast.. Normal, S/L tan, and FL tan.. gorgeous, every one.

 

Future Postings: Looking for tutorials with photos. If you have a tutorial, or would like to write one up, and you’d like to be featured on Recast BJD Haven, please Contact Me.

Recast BJDBaby

March 23, 2013

I get multiple questions weekly asking about the recast doll shop BJDBaby, wondering if they are good to use, do they have good quality ball jointed dolls, are they trustworthy, and more.. My short answer is No, I would not buy from them. There have been some pretty bad dolls coming from BJDBaby. I have […]

Recast?  Resin Comparison

The ball-jointed doll hobby of much to learn.  Not only do you have to learn what all the sizes mean, but also company to company… and even within a size range, the sizing can differ. So, it’s not surprising that adding Recast to the mix can leave many scratching their heads. A recast resin bjd is […]
