About Chibi-BJD

The word 'chibi' (ちび) means 'little' in Japanese, but it also bears the connotation of 'cute' and 'adorable'. This is a group for showcasing all the lovely little BJDs that you own.

Submission Rules:
- Only members can submit photos. However, you don't need to own a bjd to join. Everyone is welcome. :)

- Only original photos of resin ball-jointed dolls (BJD) of less than 30cm are allowed. No recast dolls are allowed.

- Please submit your photos to the correct folder. If your type of doll is not listed, submit to the 'Others' folder. If there is more than one doll of different types, please submit to the 'Various Group' folder. Multiple dolls of the same type can be submitted to their own folder

- You may also submit to the Featured folder, but the submission will be subject to approval.

- Please try to submit only a maximum of TWO photos from the same photoshoot. Too many photos from the same shoot will clog up the gallery. People want to see the photos of other dolls too! ^^

- Try to submit only your best photos. I know it's hard to choose, but try your best. :)


Hi everyone, thank you for joining this group. ^_^

I have edited the submission rules and added some information on the main page. Hope it clears up any confusion.

If you have any suggestions for contests or themes, please feel free to comment or send a note. Meanwhile, enjoy your stay and thank you for sharing photos of your lovely chibis! I have added the some photography tips below. Hope they're helpful. :)

General Photography Tips :
- Keep it simple, the less distractions in the background, the better. You can adjust the focus to blur out the background too.

- If the dolls face is shown in the picture, try to focus on the doll's face, especially on the eyes. A wrong focus can ruin the whole photo.

- Try to fill up the photo with the subject. You can either take a closer shot or zoom in. (Or crop when editing the photo later.)

- Unless you're trying to show many colours in the photo, try to limit the colours to three or less.

- Watch out for lighting. If taking a backlit photo (unless you're aiming for a silhouette,) try to reflect light onto the doll using white paper or something shiny.

Hello there! While I do not own any BJDs of any size myself I have started two Kiribans with tiny and cutie BJDs are prizes. They are 100% free. They will even be shipped to the winners. Check out the journal, spread the word, and good luck! :)

Was wondering if anybody knows how to paint a bloody tear and wound on my bjd.

You seem to have a lot of chibi bjd's or at least know a lot about them. Do you think you could help me with something? Begging Emote

This is a group, so the deviations are all submitted by people. :)

What do you need help with?

I've been trying to find a chibi BJD, preferably a tiny one ( Under 15 cm). I found a cute one that was about 5cm, which is the exact size I need. The only problem, it's 200 some odd dollars. Do you know any where to buy tiny, chibi BJD's under that are not $100?
Kogata-Yatsura Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
BJDs are usually at least $100, even the really tiny ones. There's also the shipping fee, which is quite pricey as well. Anyway, here's a list of BJD under $300:…!

Hope it's helpful to you.

Do you accept Obitsus, Pullips, and/or Hujoos as BJDs, or only true ones like Fairyland, Lati, etc.? Cute group, by the way!
Kogata-Yatsura Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
We accept only resin bjds. :)
