BJD Project - Test Subject #1

This is a simple wip, basically a test subject for BJD doll makeup test.

For this round, I will not do any air brushing onto the subject. Instead, just use color and the natural resin color to achieve the effect I want. Besides that, this is the first time almost 100% I will use real make up material for the test project.


This is the extra head I bought, relatively low price due to it's a considered a defect product. The size and shape is considered a "Baby" or "cartoonish" head: as in the head & eyes are relatively large, while the nose, lips, and chin is relatively small.

A typical "Big eye".

Eye brow pencil and cotton bud to lighten n smoothed the lines. I realised the eye brow pencil seems like contain some sort of oil based filler/binder.

Eye Shadow. This is the cheapo eye shadow I bought from Daisho

Cheek Powder - I bought from Fun n Cheer, the shop that sells China-made low cost products

After basic eye shadow and blusher.

This is one of the eye lashes I bought. At first I was thinking of using human size eye lashes but found that the backing material is way too hard to bend. Hence, no choice but to buy BJD specific ones. a very soft type.

Super glue!!
Btw, I realise after some careful trimming, it will look more natural on the doll, especially it is a lighter make up one.
Effect after trimming.

Failed. The middle part came off. Guess I was pulling too hard n there's too much tension. :(

Also trim off slightly more at the part nearere to the nose, while the outer part, I keep them slightly longer. This is crucial since i m not applying any mascara or color enhancement.

Now, the eye. I have the largest size of 18mm eye ball(luckily I bought for the "just in case" reason). The holes for the eyes are super big!!!! Even with a 18mm eye ball, there r places where the eye ball cannot cover.
To minimize the effect of having a "hole", i m using this children soft clay: Manage to get one (again in Daisho! XD) named "salmon pink".

Ok, not too bad.... Btw, I use blue tag to hold the eye ball onto the inner part of the head/face.

Next, am thinking of some ear rings. I have choices of small or dangling ones. I decided to make a slightly bigger ones. Just for testing.
First, decide the hole, and drill.

I m using this papre clips as I think the chrome really is convincing as silver. Besides that, it saves me some time on bending some perfect round ear rings. Just use a cutter to cut off the unwanted part.

After that, use this: Nail art diamond-like stickers. This is mainly i realise to find a scale down diamond thingy is not as easy as I thought. Human size, smallest one, will still look a lil too big.

A small deco on the nose :)

With hair. Ok, This is just a test subject, so nvm the clashing og the color in make-up and the hair color.... huhu, is really not my cup of tea though. Using this duo tone hair fur-ball, is just to test doing the layering for the hair.

Since I have prepared a few sets of clothing for Annabelle, I think i would just prepare a small cupboard for her clothings too. XD
Wood is pine wood from Daisho.

Cloth hanger.

Annablle's clothings. I realise I mostly get her jackets n coats, merely one dress. This is basically I would prefer to hide her joints. Same reason for the boots instead of normal high heels, which means her ankle joint will be hidden too.

Basically, that's it. Now, it's time for the main subject!!! XD
