Bjd youth, pairing up! Warning! Illegitimate member of bjd community...

It's the Iple tribe youth gang!

As bjd's, this group of dolls possess all kinds of skills, qualities, and special powers!

Bjd's are known for being kings, warriors, princes, sorcerers...

And queens, warrior princesses, sorceresses, and enchantresses.

I can't even begin to tell you their complicated stories, each of them, and how they ended up here together.

But someday I will do my best to unravel it all, and tell the story.

For now, ALL of us here just accept their taking over the security here in Dolltown.

And we are thankful. And look the other way when their relationships shift like water.

Even the young ones here. Exactly how old ARE they, anyway?

And don't ask me why some of their names are different today.

Their names and appearances change on their whims...I think.

Please do not read this blog, or view the photos if you are offended by the illegitimate bjd community.

This lad arrived before his half brothers, and before we knew enough to refuse a gift of a doll who would turn out to be so controversial. We do our best to keep him protected, hidden, under wraps, and not exposed to the justified protests his kind receives.


But we just can't put him in the trash!

Look at him! So pretty...

The girls like him. They don't want him to go.

And, despite his androgynous look, he's a guy's guy and pitches in with his Iple brothers.

He is a wicked swordsman...

Little Vikka and redheaded Arlen hang with the Iple tribe.

Tania is very protective of Jack. They all are...

Such beauties! 

Here are a few close ups of this crew!






Tania and Jack

Hey! This is supposed to be close ups of faces! Not abs!

Jack is taking advantage of a little photo time and he's looking to impress Tania!

We'll leave them here in the garden and get back to Terri's End of Summer Shindig.

It wouldn't be the first time this youth gang all disappeared into the greenery for a little summer night's dream...

Nature lovers! (Well, I have heard they are Elementals.)

    Wow....these dolls have such expressive eyes and faces. They are all so fascinating to look at. Any other time, I wouldn't have given a second glance at some of these dolls, but your photography and story telling skills have given me a newfound appreciation for an area of doll collecting I never thought of. Thank you.

    Wow! You really get around!
    These bjd's are really something...
    Sometimes I am at my wit's end with their melancholy looks, their floppy heads and bodies. They crumple when you put them down and it is close to cardiovascular exercises to dress them and pose them for stories...
    After the two big ones arrived and I worked with them a little I discarded my desire to get a couple more (I had plans for their characters). Now I "make do" with the two giants. And I switched to the little ones, the Junior Iplehouse Dolls, at 17"!
    I love them but they take patience. And money....
    I am imagining how to make the girls dresses with scarves I just bought at the dollar store. I call it the FDS influence.

    Hi Sharon!
    Thank you! 3 of them were an actual order from Iplehouse! How exciting was that!
    I spent ages comparing, choosing last year during my collection phase...
    You are an experienced bjd'er and collector so you know the excitement.
    Thank you for perusing my site!
    So nice to have you here... :)
    Hope your world has happily settled down after your real world dress up party recently (son's wedding!) Your dolls must be happy, I am imagining...
