Aesthetic Creativity

Atec 6331 Aesthetic Creativity

This video demonstrates the creative aesthetic of asian ball-jointed dolls. Even though there may be several dolls of the same mold, each differ because of the owner’s personal aesthetic. The creativity in this video is expressed through demonstrating the building process of one doll to my own aesthetic.

BJD Restringing Tutorial Part 5

Made by: Omichao @ DoA
Doll: CP Delf Elf Yder Vampire
Supplies: Sturdy string

Instructions:

-Slide the string through the top of the s-hook.
-Hold the head down, while pulling the string up.
-When the s-hook is out of the neckhole, twist it, to fit inside the groove in the neck.
-If your doll comes with a neck donut, grab the elastic under the s-hook, slide the donut in under the s-hook, and fit the s-hook into the donut’s groove.
-If your doll does not come with a donut and does not have a groove in it’s neckhole, you will need to attach the s-hook to the bridge inside of the headcap.
-If your doll does not come with a donut, groove in the neck or a bridge in the headcap.. You’ve got me.

Tips: Personally, I think that attaching the s-hook to the bridge makes the headcap hard to get off and makes getting inside the head way harder than it needs to be. Instead, I like to use either the donut or the groove to hold the s-hook. To keep the headcap on like that, simply tie a rubber band around the bridge, and attach that to the top part of the s-hook. To tighten the headcap, you can cut the rubber band shorter, or you can simply twist it.

BJD Restringing Tutorial Part 1

Made by: Omichao @ DoA
Doll: CP Delf Elf Yder Vampire
Supplies: Bobby pin

Instructions:

-Have the elastic for the arm tied.
-Slip the bobby pin onto the opposite end of the knot.
-Find the arm hole that’s larger (they aren’t the same size).
-Insert the bobby pin, and push it through to the other side.
-Pull the knot into the body.

Tips: I’ve found that with CP Delf boys, there’s an easy way to tell if the tension in the arms is good. Once you have the elastic in the body, pull the pieces to the top of the neck. If they meet, they’re good, if they overlap, they’re too loose, and if you have to pull them, they’re too tight. You can see this at the end of the clip.

BJD Restringing Tutorial Part 2

Made by: Omichao @ DoA
Doll: CP Delf Elf Yder Vampire
Supplies: Scissors, sturdy string

Instructions:

-Cut a length of string about the length of your doll.
-Slide the string through one side of the elastic.
-Meet the ends of the string.
-Start sliding on the parts of the arm.
-When you get all but the hand on, pull the elastic until it sticks out far enough for you to grab it.
-Grab the elastic, remove the string, replace with the hand.

Tips: Whichever side of the arm elastic you aren’t using, sling over the neck. If you don’t and you pull to hard, the elastic can come out and you may have to start all over.
