Cindy Sowers, who sells OOAK doll hats and dolls on Etsy, took the day off to photograph and transform some Monster High dolls into ZOMBIES! using the Halloween-themed photo editing tools at picmonkey. You can see her pics on her blog at A Dollie A Day.

How to Choose Your Very First Ball Jointed Doll (BJD)
Are you looking for beautiful hand-crafted BJD jewelry, clothing, and accessories? Are you a creative hand-crafter looking for a community of like minded sellers? If so, check out Etsy’s Doll Couture team. or Team BJD.
These teams function as creative business collectives for individuals who make items for many types of dolls and BJDs.
When you buy from those individuals, you are supporting true artistry, creativity, and handiwork. You can also accentuate the unique qualities of your BJD with a few carefully selected accessories that aren’t widely available.
One Etsy store, Shiloh Winter Jewelry, is a member of both teams. This business run by mother/daughter pair who are well known for creating beautiful wigs and jewelry from diverse materials. Their work has been shown in Haute Doll Magazine and Fashion Doll Quarterly.
I routinely check out new and interesting BJD related content on the web. Today, I came across a random-ish photo-blog-collage that’s somehow different, interesting, bigger: Bjd doll knit patterns || animal bjd / (bjd doll wigs).
The strong religious imagery at the top of the blog is absent from the rest of the images. This makes me wonder, since BJD’s can be an intensely personal expression, whether some of you incorporate spiritual and religious beliefs into the characters of your BJDs?
(Guidelines: Please talk about yourself and your BJDs. No disrespectful comments toward others.)
