08 Joint Design Nº 90
This is a plaster cast of a doll that I started back in 1989 and never finished. The hip sockets are cut at a straight angle, and the balls fit more into the sockets from the side than from the bottom. The range of movement with this type of ball joint is quite large. The one thing I do not like too much about it is that the bum has a panty cut to it, similar to a play line plastic fashion doll. Click on any image to enlarge it.
Looking once again at Martha Armstrong-Hand's example, the hip sockets are cut more like the above doll, than like the hip sockets on a resin BJD, or an OOAK BJD, such as made by Yoshida or Aimi. Desicions, decisions, decisions, oh my.
