dollfie dream louise 

dollfies are very popular hobby items in Japan, otakus there enjoy such beautiful and lovely dolls and they come in all shapes and sizes and anime characters, according to one source; Dollfie dolls generally come blank, ie, their heads are not painted. When an artist paints a Dollfie, the technique is referred to as a "face-up" or "make-up". This is usually done using acrylic paints and special sealer to keep the color from coming off with play. The finished dolls are usually collected for customization and photography shoots. Dollfie dolls are much more flexible than typical Barbie-style western fashion dolls of the same size, because of the much larger number of joints in the body.
