Sara To You by Limhwa
I recently have been on a tiny BJD kick. This is Sara, created by Korean manufacturer Limhwa Dolls, and she is in the 10.5" (27 cm) slim size, which makes her a little shorter than Barbie.
She wears a size 6 mm eye (eee!) and her faceplate removes from the front, which actually makes them fairly easy to change, even for those of us who are challenged with changing eyes.
These dolls can be ordered from Junkyspot--in fact, they currently have them in stock (and one fewer, as of yesterday, thanks to the fact that I felt Sara needed a tan Mari for a friend) for between $240 and $255, I believe, including a face-up and eyes.
They have singly jointed elbows and knees, and their feet are big enough and strung well enough to stand easily on their own.
They have a really unique handmade feel about them. Check out this group on Flickr to see the differences in resin tone, for example. Plus their tiny face-ups have such a soft look to them. Just amazing!
