MacabreDolls is dedicated to the darker side of the ABJD hobby. We aim to acquire a collection of beautifully macabre and eerie ABJD-related photography.

This group is open to anyone who owns (or is interested in) macabre Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls. You do not need to own one to join.

Please join us today! You will be accepted automatically!:blackrose:

:skullbones: Group Rules :skullbones:

:bulletblack: Submissions are limited to 3 per day.

:bulletblack: Photography must include one or more Asian Ball-Jointed Doll.
This group is for Resin ABJD's ONLY.
No other doll types/figures will be accepted, e.g. Barbie, Monster High, BRATZ, Fashion Dolls, Pullip, Blythe, etc.
(However, OOAK/artist crafted ball-jointed dolls are accepted!)

:bulletblack: Photography must depict some form of a macabre theme (e.g., dark, gruesome, eerie, creepy, horrifying, ghastly, grim, morbid, ghostly, melancholy, etc.) The levels of which these themes are represented may vary depending on your own idea or interpretation. There is no "set level" of how dark the photo should be, just as long as it incorporates some form of macabre theme. (Remember: MacabreDolls is more about the "feel" and atmosphere of the photo than it is the clothing/fashion that the doll is wearing.)

:bulletblack: Photography itself must be decent and in focus, please take care to make your doll look presentable (e.g., obviously messy wig, messy bedroom background, sloppy paint-job, etc), no low quality cellphone/webcam shots -- you don't need a DSLR/SLR camera, but please only submit your best work.

:bulletblack: No submissions for promotional purposes. (i.e., selling your commissions, face-ups, gore mods, clothing, or any kind of related sale or advertisement.)

:bulletblack: Nudity, violence and 18+ themes are allowed, however please be tasteful and artistic. Again following the dA submission guidelines and using appropriate warnings. help.deviantart.com/554/

:bulletblack: Photography of blank molds, as well as just doll parts (hands, or the like) are also accepted, as long as they are artistically portrayed.

:bulletblack: You must only submit your own photography! Do not steal or plagiarize other artists.

:bulletblack: Do not submit multiple photographs from the same photoshoot. Pick your best shot!

:bulletblack: Please NO HATING or HARASSMENT towards other members. If we catch anyone starting bullcrap, they will be removed from the group. Respect each others differences.



:skullbones: Why was my submission declined? :skullbones:

If your submission was declined it was because it did not meet the guidelines of the group rules and was voted out. We will always provide a reason for why exactly the submission was denied. However, if you feel this was unfairly decided or made in error, please note us and we will take it into consideration. We're nice people... :3 So please do not take it personally! Just try again~

Becoming a member means you accept these rules.

Do you guys have a folder for faceups/mods only? I just finished a really gory mod and I'd like to submit it to the group, but if that's not okay please let me know :)

Hi there! At this time we don't have a folder for face-ups/mods, sorry! The reason for this is because we are a group that focuses primarily on photography/atmosphere, and although face-ups and mods can be gory and awesome, a simple "commission" style shot of the head resting somewhere blank to show off the face-up, is not what we're going for as a group. If that makes sense? ;P However if the face-up you've done can be photographed as a completed doll (e.g., not commission style, as in a doll head resting on a work surface) then you can certainly submit it to any of the normal sizing folders! This is a rule that's been a little difficult to keep track of, so we may change it in the future!

SO hopefully uou'll get a few more entries too. Btw, you can only do the one image right? I was wondering if a collage was allowed? So like the main picture then down the side some more 'detail' shots? If not then that's fine. I can upload the contest entry and then the collage one as a seperate thing

After discussing it with the other admin, we agree that it's perfectly fine to do a collage. :) As long as it's one submission, then a collage/panel is fine! Tell your story the best way you can! Have fun. *u* <333
