We understand that dolls sometimes change hands many times, especially with the vigorous secondary market, and that proving legitimacy and provenance on many older dolls can be difficult. We do not expect attendees to bring papers for every single doll they bring to our events, nor do we wish to go through the arduous task of vetting every single doll that comes to Resin Rose. We will not actively be seeking out recasts. Not only would it be a gross misuse of our time, is it invasive and unfair to all those who are honest in our community.
Possession of a recast is a very serious accusation; however The Resin Rose BJD Expo is not a venue for vetting and legitimizing dolls of unknown status. If there is any doubt about the legitimacy of a doll, please leave it at home.
If someone suspects another attendee of having a recast at Resin Rose events, they must be willing to provide proof and sign an affidavit of their claims. If there is no concrete evidence, we will not investigate the matter any farther. If there is sufficient evidence to back up the claims, the person in possession of the doll in question will be taken aside privately. The doll will be photographed, visually inspected, and an opportunity to provide provenance will be given.
If the doll does not easily pass visual inspection for legitimacy, and sufficient provenance cannot be provided, it must be removed from the event, regardless of legitimacy. The doll may be placed in a vehicle or hotel room. If neither of those options are available to the person in possession of the doll, it may be left with the hotel concierge. Resin Rose will provide a discreet box and padding for the doll if necessary. If the doll is seen again, the person in possession will also be removed from the event.
Dolls that are obviously recast will be rejected from the event and the persons in possession will be asked to leave. (Example: translucent purple FL Chloe)
Our policies reflect our wishes to uphold artists’ rights and trust between those in our community. Our goal is to provide a safe and trustworthy environment to everyone without unjust accusations coloring the event.
Please use caution and common sense when buying second hand dolls from any venue. Ask for papers and provenance whenever possible. It is Buyer Beware, and the Resin Rose BJD Expo cannot be held responsible for any sales that happen at our events.
