How to disassembly a BJD ?

First, prepare the operating room :
• clean table (no mess)
• terry towel (small or large folded in half),
• an assistant
• all tools cited in previous articles :
       • Kocher forceps
       • chopsticks without paint
       • ribbons
       • scissors
       • Tweezers
       • new elastics if necessary
       • pencil paper

Lay down the doll and 
remove the wig.

Inside the head

If need, take notes to put it properly in place once the assembly is complete

Remove the head and put it in a safe place to avoid the risk of falling down ►

The hook is sculpted in the resin

The leg is composed of 7 pieces

◄ Lay the pieces next to the doll.
Repeat with the other foot.

"R" for Right
"L" for Left

Legs' elastics
Attach system

The attach system of elastic is composed of 3 parts : top, a piece with hooks in the middle part pivoting on the neck and bottom, pearl resin protecting all ►
