"I hate Easilyannoyedcamwhore’s response to the whole Culur controversy. “Oh, one person is selling a recast as a legit? Well then all recast owners support that!” Yeah fukkin right. Because no legit owner has ever stolen dolls, or listed a fraudulent sale at allllll ever. (Looks at entire PT thread list on DOA) Well then I guess all legit owners support that, since that’s the logic we seem to be using now. Or, OR, how about one asshole NOT representing an entire group?"

I thought the whole point of PT threads were to show that the BJD community on DoA is _against_ people being fraudulent… People are called out on their shit and results are expected. BJD community doesn’t accept people robbing each other. Where as that particular text by EAC was about how the recast community doesn’t enforce that their members should never sell their fakes as the real thing, but instead seems to accept this behaviour from their visible members. Hence, the wrongdoind of one becomes the accepted behaviour model of that community. But please, is the recast community is in fact being vocal about stopping this kind of ripping off (selling a recast but not stating that it is one, but instead clearly naming it as an original), point me to it. Because I’m not seeing it.

Pro-recast people don’t get to say ‘not all of us are like x’ and ‘the recast community hates fakes being sold as legit’ when it is happening right in front of your noses and a tumbleweed rolls past…! No one from the pro or neutral recast side has popped up to say this is not on, from what I can see.

When no pros come forward to publicly criticise one of their own for doing something that the entire recast community apparently frowns on, of course antis will see that pro-recast people don’t care about fakes bring sold as legit after all. Of course it will mean nothing whenever a pro-recast person says they don’t support fakes being sold as legit. Where are you, you fabled, mythical pros with principles? If this is really something you hate, if this is the barrier that seperates you from the ‘bad guys’, you should be up in arms that your image is being so badly tarnished.

What was that? Oh dear, just more crickets.

Alright, there has now been more than crickets. I am genuinely pleased to see that some morals are still being held. My main concern with recasts had always been about buying one without knowing it, when sellers don’t label them correctly. This is my main concern since it affects me personally nand directly. Close second is the fear of losing wonderful artists when their livelyhood is taken by fakes. So I’ll just wait until this problem is likewise solved.

I’ve been thinking that I might have to give up on Eiko’s (Volks Lorina) previous bright-coloured look. WhenI look at her now, I just keep envisioning long alpaca-soft hair and soft pastel colours and furry things on her. These clothes are just something I dragged from my doll-boxes, I need to buy her a whole lot of new things to suit her new pastel-cute-casual look.

So if anyone knows of Etsy/Taobao shops selling that kind of clothes (like GreenTIME or CLS on Taobao), I’ll appreciate every link!

Okay, just a fair warning. I advise anyone who wants to buy this to be really, really careful, as I suspect this is a recast. Culur is a well-known recast owner, and she has passed her recasts off as legits many, many times before (to be frank, I have not really seen her state that her dolls are recast on any other site than Castaways, and she was banned from DoA for something related to posting her recasts on there, and she posts her recasts to the Resin Aperture challenges despite the group stating that they don’t accept submissions (or however it works) of recasts). The price is a bit too good for this one to be legit, so if you are to buy, I advice you to ask for any proof that the doll is legit beforehand.

(I don’t normally reblog dolls I even suspect of being recasts, but I think this is important to warn about)

Boost. Thank you, Winonaflammery.

I am fairly sure she listed it as recast in one of the Facebook groups

Thanks for your (sorta) confirmation! Someone tell
easilyannoyedcamwhore
about this so he can sass up this post; I don’t have something good enough to add off the top of my head

[You complete the ritual perfectly to specification, with the full teacup, bar of tar-soap, and wreath of opium poppies. EasilyAnnoyedCamwhore appears on your dashboard in a haze of cigarette smoke, raises an eyebrow and coughs loudly.]

Good evening, Tumblr. I’m not feeling sassy, but I’m feeling longwinded, so sit on my lap and listen to your bedtime story.

Firstly - I am so disappointed that this is a recast (Why yes, I do just believe everything that WinonaFlammery says. WinonaFlammery could say that the sky was green, and I’d immediately go and get an eye test, that’s how good her judgment is) because someone has evidently put a lot of time into making a fake look really good. That’s a waste of effort comparable only to plaiting a horse’s tail when it’s on its way to the dog food factory.

Secondly - This is exactly what the problem is with recasts. It’s difficult to tell that they’re recast unless you have them in your hand, and even then it’s not always easy. And since prominent and well-liked figures in the recast community are willing to sell fakes as legits, it’s really reasonable to assume that most people in the recast community are fine with that (Sort of like how it’s reasonable to assume that a fan of Henry Rollins might be straight edge). Thus adding “Happy to defraud people ‘in their community’” to the list that we already have of their flaws as a group, which includes “Do not care about the rights of artists” and “Do not care about the legal position of the import of counterfeit goods in most of the Western world”.

Thirdly - You might spot that I put “in their community” in quotation marks. Those were scare quotes, because I really don’t think that you can claim to be “All one doll community” when fake-collectors are happy to defraud BJD-collectors into thinking that they’ve bought a BJD when they’e actually bought a fake. That’s not the action of a good neighbour, and since this is supposed to be a community of shared interest, you’d think that we’d all stick together and not try to scam each other. I’m not saying that BJD-collectors as a whole don’t sometimes turn out to be scammers - As someone recently pointed out, Kazakai was a walking cash-vacuum and he didn’t own recasts - but we tend not to try to sell our dolls as being something that they aren’t. There’s not a large section of the BJD community trying to pass off standards as limiteds, or Bobobies as Sooms, but there is a well-accepted section of the fake-collecting community who try to pass off fakes as legits.

Fourthly - If fake-collectors were actually doing what they said they did; Basically what Atuno does (I have a lot of time for Atuno), of tagging her fakes as fakes and making sure that they don’t get spread around into the BJD-collecting community as far as she’s able to stop them being spread, I’d still think they were a problem, but they’d be a different kind of problem. They’d be a problem to the artists, but not a problem to the community, and thus the community would be in a stronger position to actively remove them from BJD-collecting forums. The fact that fake-collectors aren’t willing to share their fakes solely with other fake-collectors, whereas BJD-collectors are more than happy to only share their BJDs with other BJD-collectors suggests that on some level the fake-collectors know that fakes are inferior.

Fifthly - Oh sod it, I’m tired and this is getting long and I’m sad about it, because now I really don’t want to buy dolls off anyone that I don’t know personally, which puts a lot of the older dolls that I want out of my reach. See my earlier post on buying secondhand and also that if everyone feels like this on an individual level the secondhand market is going to completely collapse, and probably take a good chunk of the community spirit of the doll hobby with it. Get your own cocoa, I’m going to bed.

This brings the Undertaker to mind :3 So I’m half expecting this doll to break out in an adorable wide grin anytime now.

Bwahaha! I spent the whole evening trying out different option on making bokeh brushes for Photosohop and I think I finally got it :3 I’ll have to test it out on different photos though before making a tutorial… Any improvements that come to your mind? Does something look extremely off? Well, for you know, a totally PS enhanced photo…?

I was doing a tutorial on making fake snow on Photoshop and ended up with this image. I took heavy inspiration from Nagato Yuki from the opening of the first season of Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

More photos of my Other-Nuu since I’m so infatuated with this doll atm. I might need a new name for her though… Some ethreal, but short and easy.

I modded some of my old Petite sized things to suit my soon-to-be-ordered Soom SO Skoll, named Rigel [that’d be REE-ghel]. I have this theme of black, white & red planned up for him, and nothing I previously had (in ivory, pinks and browns :D) suited him. Bleh, this means that I’ll be spending even more on Teenie clothes after this =_=

Currently my Soom Sweet (Hippu) is modelling Rigel’s style. Although Rigel’s supposed to be a lot grumpier :P

I feel like once I finally get my azone in the mail then I won’t have a hankering for a tiny doll anymore

:D Good luck with that! Tinies are addictive… And I’ve seen it with Azone owners as well :P
