Her skirt was made by my sister and my mom, I love it! I really like this look for her, I’m going to try more poses and locations for pictures. I took this picture on a cloudy day, but the colors came out ok and my limited knowledge of Photoshop helped.
Alex is an Iplehouse nYID Aria
THEA IS HERE!!!!!
Sorry for the messy background (and me in the mirror), but I just HAD to take a picture of her! She’s sooooo cute! And tiny! They look much bigger in their pictures, but…aww!! A tiny doll is just what I wanted.
I have to get her a wig cap because it keeps falling off more than Sylvie’s ever did (I thought I could fudge it for a while like I did with her, but you can’t do that with tinies). I cut the bangs a little like I did with Sylvie’s so you can see her face better. PRECIOUS!
I’m sorry, I’ll probably be raving about Thea for a while now…-_-‘
Her full name is Dorothea, after a toddler in a short story I wrote. So, I’d say she’s probably around the age of that character (3). Other than that, I don’t have a story for her, but then that’s the fun of owning dolls, right?

“Artist” & “Fantasy Author” Matthew Christopher Nelson has a project about to be funded on kickstarter where he is using “re-appropriated” (stolen) images from BJD artists and collectors (myself included) to illustrate his new fantasy novel. He has taken many many images from online accounts and run them through photoshop filters to call his own (to add insult to injury he has re-named the dolls as his characters and mis-gendered a great many of them.)
You can find the bulk of “his” “illustrations” on his facebook page. His current kickstarter project features several stolen images in its preview, as did a past canceled one, implying a certainty that these images are still intended as part of the project.
As of now, he has refused any communication with the original artists to confirm the use of images, or the removal of images and his attitude in recent posts seems to indicate he has no intention of ceasing this project or admitting to what he is trying to do.
Above you can see several examples of the original work and “his” work. All the dolls in the photos belong to and were painted by me. In addition to private BJD owner pix, he is also using official BJD images from companies such as Iplehouse and he’s even snuck in an image of Ezio from the popular video game franchise Assassin’s Creed.
