Aimerai is a relative newcomer to the BJD scene, so it was great to see these dolls in person.
All the dolls displayed were from the Oz Series, which are still available for purchase from Mint on Card as of this writing.
The tinies were particularly cute in their outfits. I wonder how well these dolls pose? It will be interesting to read reviews once those who ordered start receiving them.
Magic Mirror Booth
The lovely girls of Magic Mirror by Nanyalin look like mystical faeries in person! Maeve in lilac resin on the picture below impressed me the most. I loved everything about her!
After seeing Saoirse in person, I am very tempted to have one of my own. I especially like the curvy body sculpt with its more realistic pear shape.
It was a real treat to see Nalisinko creations at Dollism! I have admired her talent for so long and seeing her outfits in person did not disappoint. I will definitely be commissioning her as soon as I am able to get a slot!
The Black Witch Special gown, which took 22 hours to put together, was quite a stunner. It looked great on EID Carina and certainly showed off her assets!
This Bloom Show Special ensemble was amazing with all the floral detail and light mesh fabric. I am not at all surprised that it took 32 hours to make!
Princess Doll Booth
Princess Doll brought many cute and lacy ensembles in various sizes. I already have a few of their outfits and the quality is top notch! It was great meeting the company representative as well, she was very nice and helpful!
Ruby Red Galleria Booth
Ruby Red Galleria booth was very colorful with lots of tiny dolls! I didn’t know much about this BJD company until the convention and didn’t realize they have such cute sculpts!
The panel that Ruby Red Galleria held on Sunday was a lot of fun. The host was very entertaining! We played a beanbag game for prizes, laughed and generally had a great time. He also introduced the company’s new line of dolls – Ten Ping, which are based on the owner’s childhood experiences.
Spirit Doll Booth
I was happy that Spirit Doll brought some of their biggest dolls, especially from the Proud line. Interestingly, the 70cm size was not as intimidating as I had anticipated. I passed on The Mad Hatter Insane in the past due to size and now I really regret it!
The Dolce line is 1/2 scale, which is rather uncommon. And, even though at 75cm they are only 5cm taller than the Proud dolls, their proportions make them seem much larger!
Spirit Doll’s male sculpts have always appealed to me, and Celtis (below, far right) was no exception. I love the dark, brooding character many of their male dolls have. I hope to own one of their Proud boys eventually!
Switch did not bring a lot to the convention, which was surprising. On display were five Dollism Plus USA exclusive male sculpts, limited to one each, and a handful of limited wigs.
By Sunday afternoon everything Switch brought was sold out. I believe they were the first booth to start packing up due to having nothing more to sell!
The boy below, Waseon, was my personal favorite. I really liked everything about his sculpt, especially the shape of the lips.
If you’d like to see the rest of the Vendor Hall pictures, including Soom, Darak Dollmore and others, stop by next week for the third and final part of the Dollism USA article series!
Which of the sculpts featured in this post did you like best? Did any make it on your BJD wish list?
