My Resin Tribe

Asian ball-jointed dolls are most commonly made from polyurethane resin and as the name implies they are fully articulated and able to hold a wide range of poses. They come in a huge range of sizes from the Tinies which are usually anything under 25cm, MSD’s/Mini Size Dolls which are the medium height range at 45cm, and topping the height scale are the SD’s and above which are anything from 60cm to 80cm! Most importantly, they are fully customisable – eyes, hair, face paint (commonly known as face-ups), even body parts can be interchangeable whether simply just having spare hands for your sculpt to make victory sign poses or creating a hybrid from one company’s head sculpt and another’s body sculpt.

Here is where most people will point out that hybridising isn’t all that easy – usually it will involve research to find if the resin colours match or if parts are corresponding sizes – but if you are brave and willing to put your all into this hobby these are only mere challenges of customising your doll, modding can be a fun feature of this hobby too.

My tribe consist of a number of full sculpts and what I call my ‘floaty head gang’ who are essentially head sculpts that I really loved but not on the bodies they originally came with. Oh, and a pair of disembodied hands.

This is the gang so far:
