Quick Note: The colours in the photos are unedited to capture the resin skin tone as much as possible.
Today I received my first male BJD, an EID “Bichun”, who’s character is Chen Chei (my original character). He is stunning and truly a beautiful sculpt. He arrived with my much smaller KID Irene who you can see here.
Bichun’s facial features are soft but not weak looking which is an incredible thing to portray and also perfect for my character. The eyes are a stunning blue and I’m so happy!
I never planned to have blue eyes for him but they are so gorgeous that I don’t think I’ll change them. I did notice that Special Real skin is a lot lighter than I had expected. Though this is not a bad thing considering how great he looks. I can’t see him any other way.
The body is a Super Hero body which is stunningly beautiful lots of vein details around the arms and amazing torso definition.
See those abs! If I was brave enough I would try and blush the body, maybe in a few years time.
He has double joints also. However, even though he can stand up on his own, he is too loosely strung which means he can’t hold poses very well, despite the locking mechanism. I sense I’ll have to restring him in the future.
There are seam lines along his shoulder but it doesn’t detract from his beauty too much. The resin has a lovely texture to it.
There are slightly more pronounced seam lines along the back of his arms.
The hand has very light scratching but nothing too serious.
Despite the seam lines, still a very beautiful sculpt. I love the skin tone. I hope it ages well!
Very shapely legs and smooth joints.
The mobility joint on the thigh will probably be more useful once I restring him.
One of Chen Chei’s favourite poses. Lazily looking up at the stars.
I got some clothes for him so he wouldn’t be sitting on my shelf completely naked whilst I design his outfit. I think I’m going to make him a kung fu outfit first. Also I think Iplehouse sent me the wrong colour wig, but the colour actually suits him, so I’m happy to keep it.
Here is the double unboxing video.
