4. Place at least 1 ball-jointed doll in the composition.
The main contributors to Dollscar are BJDs made of polyurethane, porcelain, 3d-printed plastics or hand-made.
Large format vinyl articulated dolls: Dollfie Dream, Smartdoll, Angelphilia, Obitsu 1/3 - permitted under general conditions.
Multi-circulation ball-jointed dolls Pullip, Blythe, Azone, Barbie, Fashion Royalty and others

All other dolls can be present as extras, props, decorations.

Creative terms

1. Dedicate your booth to any existing film, short film, animated film, TV or video game feature, PC game, mobile game.
2. The movie or game must be recognizable by its characters and / or scenery.
3. Draw a scene from a movie / game, a poster for it, behind-the-scenes, "what happened after the credits", an alternative development or rethinking of events - in any way, as 3d fanart, interpret the theme you outlined.
4. Characters from different universes can be represented in the composition ("crossover"), but it is necessary to indicate in the application that one of them is the main one.
5. By prior agreement with the organizers, stands with prefabricated, allegorical and archetypal characters (something like a humanization of the entire Marvel universe) may be allowed, focusing on actors, and not their roles, and others in this spirit (it is possible to provide an exhibition space out of competition).

If you have a complex idea and you are not sure if it fits the format for Dollscar, just write to us, we will discuss!

doll line
one mold
dolls with a clear common body feature — for example, all with hooves, or all plus size
any artistic direction, for example, scary dolls

If you are not sure if your idea is suitable for the format of a fan stand, write to the organizers, we will discuss it! The rules for fan stands are not strict and we can provide an exhibition space for those who dream of showing something it is on Dollscar.

Advertising annd commerce questions

1. Offer visitors handouts, including advertising, if it is directly related to the exposition (for example, the seamstress has made all the costumes for the fan stand, and her business cards are on the table)
2. Authors to participate in organizing fan stands according to their brand. In this case, the author can own no more than half of the dolls. For example, only 12 dolls are involved, which means that 6 of them can be exhibited by the author himself.

1. Offer for sale something located directly at the stand
2. Actively devote the entire stand to promotion (advertising in the design of the stand, the stand is littered with leaflets, etc.)
3. If the author of the dolls participates in the organization of the fan stand, it is prohibited to place on the stand molds / dolls that are currently on sale (for limited editions) and available for pre-order.

If you need all this - please move to the trade and exhibition area, we will be happy ^^
