In addition to writing, I collect ball-jointed dolls, often referred to as BJDs for short. While my collection is primarily Asian ball-jointed dolls, I have owned others.
Most of my dolls are “shells” for characters from my stories. Meet them here:
I began collecting BJDs in 2010. My collection has been slowly expanding since then. Although I’m not a professional, I enjoy photography and my dolls are one of my favorite subjects. If you’re interested in seeing more of my unusual dolls, take a look at my gallery.
Free Resources for dolls
In addition to collecting, I try to assist new doll owners in learning to customize their own collection. I offer a number of tutorials for customization on my YouTube channel, Lomi’s Playground.
There you will find guides that will help you learn to paint your own dolls, create custom eyes and wigs, and even learn to sew using patterns I provide.
You can find my patterns here:
Free Sewing Patterns for Dolls
All these patterns have been created by me, made to fit BJD sizes I currently own or have owned in the past.
Support my work
Though I try to offer budget-friendly solutions in providing free patterns and education to help people create clothing and accessories for their dolls, it requires a great deal of time and a number of expensive materials to create these tutorials. If you have benefited from my work, or would like to see me continue to create these resources for dolls, please consider supporting me in one of the following places.
Thank you for your interest in my hobby!
