Realistic fashion style BJD’s – Marmite Sue

Published by LunarReverie on

A spotlight post about Marmite Sue BJD’s, detailing what makes these artist-created dolls unique and special.
In this blog series, I will share information about some well-known and lesser-known ball jointed doll artists who work in resin in around 16″ (1/4 or 40-45cm) size, so theoretically these dolls would look good as a companion to the Popovy Sisters dolls I own. In following posts I will also talk about similar realistic fashion style BJD’s in materials such as porcelain and similar dolls in alternative sizes.

For the Dentelle and Natural type body, there was an option to order a spring system or elastic strung body. As I have the elastic strung body myself I can’t review the spring system advantages, but according to Marmite Sue, this was created for precise posing.
My Noi has a bit of difficulty standing on her high heel feet, as they are sculpted in such a way that the doll almost stands on her tiptoes and her ancles have a tendancy to shift the doll’s weight forward. Her knees are ingeniously crafted with very delicate slots, so they gently lock when she is upright (as can be seen in the promo picture for her release in June 2012, below). The legs on her ball joints also have a little locking mechanism.
