I didn't know where to post this topic, but I figure this is a safe place to start.
This one is for all the BJD and Doll people out there:
Have you ever dressed your dolls up in cosplay or fashioned a doll after a character?

I am currently working on dressing up my two Pullip/Taeyang dolls (not technically BJDs, but they are accepted in this discussion). The one doll I want to dress as Kadaj (FF7:AC) and the other I want as Xemnas (KH2). I also have an SD Illusion Spirit doll that I'm contemplating dressing up as Grell or Sebstain (although both are very common now-a-days)

So share your current doll cosplay or future plans for doll cosplays here!

I'm not 100% sure what the rules of posting pictures are in this type of thread, but I will ask that you keep any pictures that you post limited to two per post and a reasonable size (large images please size down)

No matter how many times I see it, I will ALWAYS think "BJD" is a sex act.

I think it's cute when people make costumes for their dolls. I don't understand bringing a bdj, which I know can cost upwards of $600 to a crowded convention. I have a Byul (Hermine, she's wearing an lolita outfit from Innocent World) I love her, she's so cute. I don't know if I'd ever dress her up though

I've been saving off and on for a BJD for THREE YEARS but cosplay keeps getting in the way XD; When I do get one... eventually..... She will be cosplaying Shanghai when I'm Alice :D

Whew, if I could ever find a good seamstress that can making awesome costumes for my Dynamite Dollfie, I'd have her cosplay.

I was considering getting a unifom commissioned for Kojiro (my Fairyland LittleFee Bisou (I have goen from owning like six dolls, to just the one little one)), but in the end it isn't really in my budget.

On the topic of taking them to conventions.. You have to be smart, like with anything expensive you carry around. I have taken dolls to conventions on two occassions I think (once I took two 60cm dolls, ugh heavy), and I'll definitely be taking Kojiro this year as he is so easy to carry.

I know my friend's gf Mana brings her Dollfie to SacAnime, if I remember right, there was a board about it at the last Sac Anime
