    - Please don't spam or post "Bump"s.
    - Even if something isn't on this list, that doesn't mean that it's okay. Use your common sense. Feel free to post questions and concerns on this thread. We're here to help.

    Ball jointed dolls are literal dolls (generally around 10"-12" tall) that have been abandoned in some way or another. Shadows, spirit-like creatures (they can touch and move things, but can make themselves untouchable and phase through things) created from abandoned objects (typically the only thing on their form that is white), find these abandoned dolls and make "contracts" with them. Contracts bind the doll to the Shadow, and in return for the life the Shadow gives the doll, it needs love and affection in return (this is the abandoned object within the shadow that wants the love). Only the Doll that forms a contract with the Shadow can touch that particular Shadow, but if the Doll has a significant other, then the lover, too, may also touch the doll's Shadow.

    Shadows cannot live very long without dolls, because they need love, which is why they can spend their whole 'lives' searching, and Dolls can't live without their Shadows keeping them 'alive'. That being said, dolls do not actually live, but can speak and think and move as a living human. While they cannot eat, bleed, breed, etc, they can, be burned or shattered and damaged. If well taken care of, they can last a very long time, which is why age is meaningless to dolls.

    All ball jointed dolls are in the normal human-world, until they travel to the Dollhouse. The Dollhouse looks the size of a normal dollhouse on the outside, but inside, it's an elegant resort with rooms and doors to different dimensions and worlds. Shadows usually guide their dolls to the dollhouse at some point, but not all dolls go there.

    Dolls come in all shapes, sizes, genders, sexualities, etc. No two come to life that are exactly the same. The average doll only has one Shadow, due to only needing to sign a contract with that one Shadow in order to come to life. However, on extremely rare occasions, two Shadows will decide on the exact same Doll, at the exact same time, and decide to share the Doll. Or, the opposite; one Shadow takes on the burden of giving life to two dolls. Shadows can be any size, but compare them to your doll. If, on the reference, you're shadow is much shorter than your doll, then choose an appropriate height based on that. Unless specifically said, shadow's cannot change in size.

    Humans know of Dolls, but it's considered more of a fairy tail to them, since Dolls are rare in themselves.

    Q₁₀


    If you ever have issues with any staff members due to them not judging a contest, closing contests, failing to respond to messages, etc, please contact Hoshikuzu (myself) and I will handle it. With that being said, any staff member can be removed from the team under the right circumstances, such as extremely lengthy inactivity (without a prior explanation), not having the ability to handle their position, and so on.


    Staff Rules
    - Staff can make as many customs as they would like. For non-artist staff (you guys are just as important as the rest) just PM someone asking if they wouldn't mind making one for you (I'll gladly do so).
    - Artists are allowed to ask any other staff members for assistance with judging, whether they may be an archivist, a moderator, et cetera.
    - Staff must also be friendly and respectful to all users, no matter the situation. You should be able to handle your position maturely. If you're truly troubled, however, feel free to message either myself or any other members who will no-doubt be happy to help.
    - These rules may change in the future.

FAQ

Postby Hoshikuzu » Mon Sep 15, 2014 7:13 am

    Are you accepting custom applications?
    - Customs are only available for staff members, or possibly during events. So unless specifically stated otherwise, then no.

    How do I become a Staff member?
    - Most staff will be selected by application, which will be posted on the Homepage when we're open to applicants.

    What if I don’t want my Doll anymore?
    -If an owner no longer feels connected to their Doll, then they may PM either the artist who designed their Doll or myself, and we will put the Doll up for re-adoption. The original owner of the Doll will most likely have nothing to do with the re-adoption, considering the Doll is no longer theirs.

    Can I call my Doll "BJD", which stands for ball jointed doll, instead?
    Of course! That was actually their original nickname, but a friend of mine agreed that it resembled "JBD" or "JMD" a little too much.

    Why do all the Dolls look different?
    That's because every doll is created customly! Meaning, in order to send out an adopt, us artists have to draw everything from scratch! That's right, bask in our awesomeness.
