We accept: Face-ups, body blushing- including tattooing, sewing, modifications, sculpting BJDs, sculpting scale props, handmade scale jewellery, beadwork and other handmade crafts for any scale Ball Jointed Doll, as long as the work is yours, even if the item or blushing in question is for another person.
We don't accept: Drawings of your dolls, human scale items, crafts, face ups, mods, outfits etc made FOR your doll by anyone other than yourself, crafts for non BJDs like Monster High or Tonner dolls or plans for artisan made BJDs.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING MADE FOR OR DISPLAYED ON A RECAST BALL JOINTED DOLL. As a BJD craft group, we support ARTISTS and we stand against the art theft and blatant illegal counterfeiting that is recast dolls. If a recast is submitted, it will be deleted from the group, and the member in question will be blocked.
-Credit yourself! Deviations need to state clearly what it is you've made/done in the image in the artist statement.
-Clothing, props etc don't have to have a BJD in the picture, but please indicate that is BJD scaled.
-We do not accept people submitting items for other people. The image must include something you made yourself.
-Items for sale are accepted, but we ask for you to please respect our group and not treat it as Esy.

-We accept all levels of skill, but we do NOT accept art theft. This includes claiming a craft is yours when it was made by someone else, unpermitted use of patterns, use of other people's photographs and use of, and in any way, even if the craft IS yours, of a recast doll.
