Interview with Fairyland
Fairyland is a ball-jointed doll company based in South Korea. They release dolls sculpted by Cerberus Project, the sculpting team who first gained popularity through LUTS with their Delf and Minifée lines. Through the years, Fairyland has arguably become one of the most popular doll companies around. It’s no surprise why: they almost consistently produce high-quality dolls that are both beautiful and have great engineering. It also helps that their aesthetic is reminiscent of anime and manga, which is a sure way to win the hearts of a huge chunk of the BJD-loving population.
I’m a huge Fairyland fan myself (my first doll, Blair, is from their company), so I got extremely excited when they indulged me with an interview! I was hoping to get Cerberus Project to answer my questions, but they’re too busy, so Fairyland’s head administrator, Steelknight, answered the questions instead.
How did Fairyland start? I have been working with Cerberus Project/FairyLand for close to 10 years, which is around the time of FairyLand’s foundation. Cerberus Project (CP) has been around for longer than this. CP is essentially a team of sculptors and it was decided that a company specializing in sales and introducing CP’s dolls to customers was necessary - this is how FairyLand was founded.What’s the concept behind Fairyland? It’s a rather difficult question actually. Each doll line-ups have its own basic concepts, but in general, Realpuki, pukipuki and pukiFee have fairy themes. Their concepts are generally themed around cheerful, loving and sometimes mischievous little ones.

BLOGGED: Interview with Rosen Lied

Rosen Lied is a popular BJD company that hails from South Korea. They are best-known for their unique doll style that is reminiscent of antique porcelain dolls. I had the privilege to interview the talented GiGiKer and Rollingpumpkin, two of Rosen Lied’s artists. GiGiKer is a clothes designer while Rollingpumpkin is both a clothes designer and a faceup artist.
1. How did you discover BJDs?GGK: I first came to know what BJDs were when I was 21. At that time, it was not possible to buy a BJD from Korea because there weren’t so many companies like nowadays, so it was a shock when I first saw them. I love miniatures and BJDs were more than enough to grab my attention. I instantly fell in love in first sight.2. Did you have artistic training/background before you started working for Rosen Lied?GGK: Before working with Rosen Lied, I worked alone on my shop and worked with other companies as well.3. Where does the name Rosen Lied come from and how does it relate to your design aesthetic?RP: All the staff that started Rosen Lied gathered around and went looking for a name that gives an antique feeling. We came up with many ideas and chose this name. Rosen Lied means ‘song of roses’ in German. And we don’t know if anybody noticed, but our “The One” dolls all have names of music terms. :)

I stumbled upon Jocelyn Teo’s miniature artwork a while back when  I was browsing through Den of Angels’ commission subforums. I was awed  at the amount of detail and realism she puts into every little thing she  creates. It’s just… mind-blowing. They look so yummy and so real and you almost want to eat them, but then you realize that’s a Pukifee holding the tart! Amazing.
I’m glad and honored that she took some time to answer some questions  for my little blog!
