If you take them out in the Sports Bra Set then they may catch a cold. Alternatively you may want to go for the Sports Bra Set and then choose to customize the look and feel of your Smart Doll by buying additional apparel items. You can see what items the current Apparel Set consists of on this page. Smart Doll’s are available in two different flavors – a “Sports Bra Set” & “Apparel Set.” Guys normally wear bra’s at home when nobody is looking but our Smart Doll guys don’t which is why we’ve given them a pair of Boxer Shorts instead. If you are buying a Smart Doll for the first time then choosing either set is enough – you do not need to get anything else in addition – but extra accessories will enhance your Smart Doll experience.

Sanding is also a huge part of detailing the joint.
It took me a long time to finally achieve a good result. And in that time I probably would have sculpted my own perfect clay balls. The types of BJDs can run the gamut; animalistic, gothic, super-cute, anime, fantasy, punk, couture fashion and everything in between – the possibilities are endless. Articulated dolls have been around for milennia; the ball-jointed doll we know of began production in the 19th century. These were usually ceramic parts with composite for the ball joints.
Place different sized marbles into the corners of the box. This will allow you to align the mold pieces during casting. A bjd’s head will also have a small hole in the bottom where the neck joint is. It also has a vertical slit that is wide enough for the elastic and S-hook. You can build these from scratch or work over an armature.
Hujoo was a well known company for these types of dolls, but the company ceased production in 2020. Another common ABS doll even in the United States is the impractical jokers dolls Jun Planning Ai line. Den of Angels does not consider these on-topic as they are not resin dolls.

They report that the BJD community as a whole is starting to utilize 3D printing in whole or in part to create their dolls, doll parts, and accessories as well.
