I'm 50 years old and come from Scotland. I bought my first, and only, porcelain bjd 3 years ago, but due to poor health she has sadly been in her box in a cupboard. She is a Dea Vivente by Anya Kozlova. She is a beautiful doll and Anya is a wonderful artist and is such a pleasure to deal with in every way.
I had to wash my dolls wig due to it getting a kink near the scalp and unfortunately it's gone a bit lank which has been putting me off photographing her at the moment. However, my doll's artist is kindly allowing me to order additional wigs .. although I think I need to wait for a couple of months for them! I have just bought a macro lens for my camera so am looking forward to finally start photographing my beautiful doll - I am just a beginner to photography!
I also have a resin Axana sculpt by Ilona of Lightpainted Doll. I am assuming she is off-topic and only allowed in the tearoom here??
Looking forward to getting to know you all and your dolls!
Ps. My Flickr name is UaMUSEme ..currently I only have a couple of pics of resin abjds on there but I will be uploading pics of my porcelain doll as I take them.

Hello uamusume! Have you tried using some spray Aussie conditioner for the wig to get some life back in it? I use in on my natural fiber wigs - what is it made of? You can share your resin in the tearoom of course And welcome to the forums - I'm also in the UK!
Hi Kamia, thanks for the welcome ..and thank you so much for your tip about the Aussie conditioning spray! I went straight out and bought some after I read your post. I've scrunched it in to try to bring back some of the natural wave to the wig and it's looking good so far! (I'm currently waiting for it to dry naturally)

Welcome! Scotland is one of my favorite places. I'm fact, I ordered my first BJD to be a Scottish lass with red hair and freckles. She hasn't come yet but I've been selecting her name and learning a lot of different traditional names. What a joy it must be to be living there. Some day I'll go and visit the highlands. That's a dream of mine. Can't wait to see photos of your doll!
Hi uaMUSEme I wasn't familiar with Anya's dolls before and had to check her site. They are so beautiful and feminine! Congratulations! Will be looking forward to seeing some photos of your wonderful doll
