I know…2 days in a row and blog posts from me. What is happening?!! I have some news people!! There are some new dolls in the studio this week. They are brand new on the market and I am absolutely in LOVE. I give a huge welcome to Muses by JAMIEshow and Owen Su!
Doll: JAIMESshow /OwneSU Muses Ginnie 1/6 Resin ball jointed fashion doll
Wig: Culte de Paris on Etsy ** note: the wig fits very loosely on this doll. It was made for FR2 size head and while this doll fits into most 1/6 clothing, wigs are hit and miss**
Gown: Rimdoll on Etsy
Shoes and earrings: Integrity Toys
Japanese maple leaves and branches: Made by me for this shoot
Background: Replica Surfaces
Styling and photography: ITFDS
Yes! The facial screening on these dolls is on a whole other level!! I’m serious here. The images really don’t do them justice. I can’t tell you how many shots I took of the close-ups because I just could not believe what I was getting through the lens. I am using a Canon 5D Mark III with a Canon EF 100mm f 2.8 macro lens. Yes, these are good pieces of equipment but they are not THAT good. This doll is really that beautiful. I am not photoshopping anything into it, I took out some dust and stray hairs I failed to style before the shoot ( because I was too excited to be patient…sue me LOL!). Colors are accurate and no changes to makeup. I LOVE THIS DOLL!!!
Ok…so do I have your attention now? LOL!
These are new BJD style 1/6 scale fashion dolls from JAMIEshow and the talented Owen Su. I am a complete novice to ball and joint dolls so if you have advice…please share with me and others in the comments. They have elastic string running through the doll that make them extremely flexible and malleable for posing. These particular dolls also have a variety of rooted wig caps you can buy for a huge variety of looks.
Here is a little bit about the designer Owen Su:
These dolls were offered up for sale in December and shipped to customers in late April. I ordered 2 dolls, a ton of rooted wig caps, all of the accessory sets and one of the fashions. I’m not going to lie. These dolls are not cheap. Each doll was $425. I looked at this as an investment and I had faith in JAMIEshow and Owen Su( @ownesu_doll on instagram) that they would produce a quality product. Boy oh boy did they deliver!
Each doll came with a lingerie set, earrings, shoes and a rooted wig cap. They were beautifully and securely packaged for shipping. The screenings and delicate joint shading is really amazing. I am a bit intimidated by the ball and joint/string element. I am slowly and carefully learning. I am petrified of breaking the elastic string but so far nothing to worry about. They are extremely flexible for posing which is one of the main reasons I wanted to invest.
Now for the bad news….for right now. These dolls are sold out online at JAMIEshow right now. I am very hopeful that they will do a second round of orders now that this first phase has successfully launched. As of the writing of this post, I have no further information on that but stay tuned.
