a site for asian ball-joint dolls
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand...

Barefoot in Winter is a doll site, a site about the faery that lurks behind your door and beckons you to the open road. Will you enter into the wide world with her?

These are Korean and Japanese "ball-joint" dolls, meaning they are composed of hollow resin pieces held together with elastic cording (and a bit of magic). For more information about where to find BJDs, how to customize them yourself, and to see endless beautiful pictures of similar dolls, please visit the links page. ^_^
