Porcelain BJD dolls

I'm a fan of Ball-jointed dolls because of their posing. Sometimes, though, I don't want resin dolls and I prefer to browse porcelain BJDs. Here are some of my favorite porcelain BJDs in the 30-50 cm size-range.

section 1: Artist’s dolls- made-to-order fullsets or OOAK only dolls (ORDER IS RANDOM AND NOT BASED ON PREFERENCE)

Many of the artists in this section do take requests for custom dolls (in fact, that is the easiest was to get their dolls); however they do not focus on customs like the makers in the final list do. Those companies primarily make customs and have specific order forms with drop-down menus on their websites.

1. Zuluminous doll

I like this artist's dolls. Her fullset are made to compliment the aesthetic her dolls have; exaggerated realism. They are beyond pose-able and are stunningly beautiful, the pictured doll has a soulful face I admire. The artist releases a few fullsets per year. She also works in resin.

2. Skvorkadolls

Her dolls are very lively-looking. Again, good posing. The faces on these dolls are what I would call 'realistic with some stylization'. It's hard for artists to create dolls that so perfectly fit that description.

3. Lutsenko Dolls

The realism is incredible, as is the quality. My only complaint for the dolls is they are usually made OOAK for auction. Some dolls are also made with inset eyes. Personally, I believe the painted faces are unbeatable. they also make resin dolls.

4. Nata doll

Adorable elfin boys. They have sweet faces. They look very delicate; they'd be good companions to any faery-type dolls you have.

5. Finist Doll

These dolls are more cartoonish, but I like that. They epitomize what you think of when you think ‘doll’. I find the lady down below very elegant, too, with her expression.

6. Julia Puchkina-Zaitsva dolls

These dolls have the most beautiful painted faces. Very sincere expressions.

7. Elena-Aki dolls

The detail here amazes me! The tattoo work resembles clothing so fully I did not realize her top-half was unclothed.

8. Annadollmaker 

Again, striking realism and incredible detail. Those eyes are haunting.

9. VividDolls

There are not enough words to express the beauty of these girls. They are delicate and elegant. 'Fate', a doll visible in the gallery of their website, is their most stunning creation in my opinion. These girls have double-jointed necks that are so creatively designed that you nearly cannot see the joints!

11. Sensational Doll/Immortal Classique 

These dolls are too perfect to be realistic. I mean that in the best way.


The jointing, the porcelain quality, the craftsmanship… all look so incredible. I hope to own one of these beauties some day.

13. Olga Falkova (Oliv-ARTDolls)

14. Irina Fomina

dolls of various sizes are made by this author. all are incredible!

15. Aleksana Lavrinchuk's shop (aleksana-dolls)

These dolls have delightful expressions.

16. Julia store (ElliDolls)

These dolls do not belong on this list in that they are only 15 cm high, but I couldn't resist adding them anyway.

17. Ddanne. My favorite artist. He is SO creative. He makes lovely Alice in Wonderland dolls, and lovely Venus dolls.

section 2: custom doll service

1. Lana Isaeva dolls

These are my favorites on this list. They are made to order customs! There are 3 face molds and 7(!!!) shades of porcelain to choose from. You can also request porcelain colors beyond just this seven if you wish to. As you can see, tattoos are an option. Doll with no tattoos is $1400 USD.

The skintones:

the face molds:

new molds are coming soon:

2. Porcelain_bjd

Note: only the Lucienne body (47 cm) and the Malena (35 cm) body is in this size range. Multiple color choices available and ‘upgrades’; like better jointing can be requested. These are the lowest quality dolls on this list, but their creativity and charm, and good customer service, makes up for their (comparative) deficit. They are also the least expensive option here. They even do mermaids and fantasy creatures upon request! Basic Malena is $200 USD with no paint; just white fired porcelain. Basic Lucienne with no paint/just fired porcelain is $500.

the facemolds and skintones:

3. Forgotten Hearts porcelain BJDs

They offer 10+ face molds, a smooth body and a more-jointed body, a mermaid body, and a male doll. There are 3 porcelain options, but I do not think you get to pick the eye color of your dolls. You pay more for paint customization. They are stunning dolls! you can choose a set that's just the doll in your chosen shade with default painting, a doll with custom paint, a wig, and a box, a fullset… the options are endless! basic doll, with default paint and no extras is $900 USD. Currently, all dolls are on-sale for $750!

Hi! Thank you very much for the feature and very nice words :D If you want to know more about our dolls you can visit @porcelainbjd | Linktree or to send a DM for specific questions or even if you want to make an interview sometime :) At my FB Paulina Gravagno you will find full albums the latest dolls I have made . For the moment I am still working with my usual technique, acrylics and lacquer on porcelain, but at the same time developing a china painted line and even my own porcelain formulas, since it is very difficult in my country to get it ready for casting. I profoundly admire these great artists and they are my inspiration for constant improving. And must to thanks also to my customers, they challenge me with their ideas and every doll is turning out better every time! Have a nice day :3 !!!
