Dollcore is an aesthetic that is inspired by japanese ball-jointed dolls. It mostly centers around artistic photography and image edits featuring bjd as central focus.
- Poofy dresses (often empire-waist) or skirts
- Ball-jointed tights
- Platform shoes
- Sheer fabrics
The more extreme fans of the aesthetic follow a practice refered to as "dolling" in which they turn themself into living dolls with the help of bjd kigurumi masks and often also ball-jointed zentai. It highly increased in popularity because of the worldwide media coverage about Lulu Hashimoto, who centers her modeling career around looking like a bjd. She's a hot topic that is still loved by core fans.
