<3 Welcome! We hope to see so much more of you. <3
The forum is very new at this point, so there may be some changes as we figure out the best rules, forums structure, etc. We hope to have most of the dust settled by December, at which point we may have some "grand opening" contests and events. So stay tuned & post your suggestions and comments! <3

Hello Allurose, I too thank you for all your hard work. How nice to have one forum for all porcelain bjd's. Looking forward to learning about new dolls!! Can you please include the wonderful Japanese porcelain doll artist, Koitsukihime?
Welcome, Isslyn! Thank you, I hope you and everyone else likes the forum!
Merrijane, you are so welcome! Yes, it looks to me like those dolls are On Topic. I won't be attempting to create a thread for each artist myself...there are so many it would be impossible! But if you are a fan of their work, I think it would be amazing if you started the thread yourself! I'm sure there are many people like you who want to see dolls from many artists!

Hello Allurose, Thanks so much for creating this forum, and doing all your research on all these wonderful porcelain doll artists! I believe the world has needed a forum for porcelain bjd's for quite some time!
Can you please include the wonderful Japanese porcelain doll artist, Koitsukihime?
Excellent idea! I've read once this artist is very secretive about her work; photos are not allowed when there's an exhibition for example. It could be interesting to learn more.
Fawkes, I'd love to know more too...I am hoping someone might join the forum who actually owns a doll...that would be fabulous! I know that Koitsukihime has been a huge inspiration and idol for Marmite Sue. I stumbled upon a blog recently, where a person had attended her exhibition and managed to take one photo before they were stopped. From memory the small dolls were about $10,000 and I read somewhere else that one of her large dolls (over 1 metre tall) sold for around $30,000. Quite reasonable I thought, in comparison to the price of Enchanted Dolls for example. I think I'll take allurose's advice and start a Koitsukihime thread in the hope that more fans may appear!
