Asian Ball Jointed Doll-or BJD. Most commonly cast in polyurethane resin, ABJDs have a very Asian aesthetic and are becoming more popular in Western culture. They are strung with sturdy elastic and are highly customizable- wigs are easily removed as well as eyes. Their faces (the make up) can be completely removed and repainted (within, the ABJD community, the process is called a 'faceup'). They range in size from 90cm to 10cm, the most common sizes are 60cm (1/3), 40cm (minis, 1/4) and tinies, 30 cm and down. They are also poseable, with joints to give a wide range of motion.
My ABJD is highly poseable and was a bit more expensive than I care to tell.
