BJD Recast: Unethical BJD Copied Dolls

A ball-jointed doll (BJD) recast refers to a doll that is a replica or copy of an original BJD, typically produced without permission from the original doll manufacturer. Recasts are often made by unauthorized third parties who create molds of existing dolls and produce copies without the consent of the original doll company. These recasts are usually sold at a lower price than the original dolls.

Recasting is a controversial topic within the BJD community because it undermines the original doll companies by infringing on their intellectual property rights and impacting their sales. It is generally considered unethical and discouraged by doll enthusiasts and collectors.

Authentic/Legit BJDs are typically created by well-known BJD doll companies and are handmade with high-quality materials. They often come with a higher price tag due to the craftsmanship and the limited edition nature of these dolls. On the other hand, recasts are unauthorized copies that vary in quality and do not have the same level of craftsmanship as the original dolls.

It’s important to note that supporting recasts can have negative consequences for the doll community and the companies that produce the original dolls. It is generally recommended to purchase BJD dolls directly from:

  1. Authorized sellers
  2. Official BJD companies
  3. Trusted BJD Collectors (good feedback)

A final note, I AM AN UNFRIENDLY FACEUP ARTIST TOWARD RECAST BJD DOLLS. I do not accept BJD Faceup Commissions for recast BJD at all costs.
