Moving to the Forum!

Hi everyone!

Just a reminder for you all that the forum is now open for membership and a bulk of the discussions are now ongoing there. Eventually, we intend to keep LJ as an archive for our older posts and use the forum for current discussions. We built it to accommodate our HUGE member count now, so really happy about how people have taken to it so far. It's absolutely delightful how people we don't usually notice on the LJ have become more noticeable and active on the forum.

Also, the latest Official Meets and MM Themes have been announced and are being discussed there, too! You'll have to log in to the new community to see the details, keep up to date, and view what's been submitted so far.

We're constantly making improvements to the forum, making little tweaks to the rules and the forum structure and brewing ideas to help everyone enjoy the community. So your comments and suggestions will definitely go far in making our community get better for everyone.


Hi everyone!

We're proud to reveal the new home of the community: The ManikaManila Forum!

Since our community has been constantly growing, it's been getting harder for us to make sure everyone feels at home. Now with the forum, we can keep discussions spread out so everyone gets the opportunity to speak to new people or see what's new for sale.

Along with the new community format, we're also introducing a new set of rules to ensure everyone's comfort. Our rules also cover our stance on recasts, which we know is a hot topic for everyone.

The LJ will still be running, but mainly as an archive of our old posts :) so please use the forum moving forward.

Finally, since this is the forum's soft opening, suggestions and comments are very welcome. Just approach any mod for your concerns.

Hope you enjoy our new home!

Classic Majesty Wigs

Hey~~ I promised some of you some photos of the wigs. I apologize if some aren't put
together well  as my main purpose is to show you some of the wigs I got (including
their colors).~~

There is more under the cut but please no comments about my doll looking scary. ;v;
I have a few more wigs other than this if anyone wants more. Just let me know. They
are all different styles and colors.

At Long Last~!

Hi everyone! I'm Indollgence! You guys may call me Richelle or Rizz. :D I'm one of them members who prefer lurking than posting. Hahahaha. This is my very first post! Yay! XD And the reason for my sudden intrusion is my very first BJD's arrival! *throws confetti*

Here she is! My lovely mermaid girl! I named her... Arethusa. Tadaaaa~

Those are the wig and eyes that the seller gave me as gifts. Yep. She's secondhand and she just arrived today! Sooo sorry for the crappy photos hahaha. ^-^; She's a Planetdoll Aqua, btw.. the MSD one, not the tiny. :D

Anw, now that Arethusa's here.. I've got a lot of saving and shopping to do. Got a lot of plans for my girl. But first things first, a faceup!! I've contacted a couple of local artists already. :D Oh and I'm planning to change her wig and eyes as well. :3 Aaand maybe I can join meets someday? We'll see. I'm too shy and awkward but I'd love to make dolly friends!! None of my current friends are in the hobby just yet so yeah. Hahaha. X"D

Okay, my blabbing ends here! Hahahaha. Thanks for reading, guys! Go, MM! XD Hahahahahaha I'm so hyper right now. oTP


OT (Maybe): Ozine 2013


Sorry this might seem Off-Topic or something please move it if needed :).

I met up with "Yuki's Den" last sat in Ozine 2013 to buy a few dollie things and while I was walking around in the crowds I overheard a guy say "Nasaan yung mga Dolls?". Then I remembered that Manika Manila had a Display last year.

ManikaManila Themes: April Fools

Themes round seven already?!

Before that though, have you seen the submissions from March?

Last month had some nice variety going on, so make sure to check them out!

Now let's get down to business.

Themes is ManikaManila's way of encouraging more creativity within the community. :D Every month, we'll post a new theme. Members will take this theme and apply it to a photograph. Reply to this post with a link to the photograph, and at the end of the month we'll compile everything into one post on our website (

Here we go!

The theme for April is...

Now it's time for some REAL fun!

This is the first time ManikaManila is celebrating April Fools. How would your dolls prank each other? How would they prank you, maybe? Or maybe you would prank your doll? ;) There's all kinds of possibilities so start thinking of some laughs now!

Excited to see what everyone will come up with!

We'll compile submissions on April 30th, so you may post until then.
Now go out there and start shooting!
