Sponsored review: ForMyDoll BJD wigs (July)

While I was browsing through the News section on Den of Angels a while ago, I noticed that ForMyDoll was looking for people to partner with them and review their wigs. I figured that I'd contact them, since I'd bought some wigs from them before and liked them, so the chance of working with such a lovely company and spreading the love for their wigs sounded amazing!

As you can see, ForMyDoll did in fact choose me as one of their supporters / "Friends" for two months ♥ I'm really thrilled about this opportunity~ Besides all the photo spams, box openings and other randomness, I also enjoy posting informative content on my blog to share with other doll hobbyists!

I'd like to mention that even though this is a sponsored review, all the opinions are my own :)

These are the two wigs that I ordered: (the promo pictures belong to ForMyDoll)

[FMDS M_20] Cherry Wine in S size (6-7inch)

This one I got for my little Marissa (Soom MD Minette), who's been in need of a new wig for a while >3< Red wigs can be quite hard to find, but FMD has them in many different styles and sizes! To me this "Cherry Wine" color is the perfect shade of red and also matches nicely with Marissa's mom's hair ♥ The style looks adorable and even though Marissa's previous wig was completely different (shoulder-length fur wig), I wanted to try how this bob style would look on her!

This wig style is available in 13 different colors in S size (6-7inch) and 12 in SS size (5.6-5.7inch). There is a separate sales page for every size/color combination.

[FMDL-1093G] Grey Purple in L size (8-9inch)

The second wig I got for Deri (Soom MD Sweet Witch)~ I'm known as a lover of both purple and pink colors, so of course this beautiful gradient-colored wig caught my eye o3o Deri's default wig is deep purple, but I've been looking for a second wig that would be in a more greyish shade of purple, but not completely grey. As a character, Deri is a grey flying squirrel in her animal form, so I wanted a wig to represent that better, with some fantasy elements. I feel like this gradient wig is perfect for that! ♥

This same wig is available in many different sizes: SS(5.6-5.7inch), S(6-7inch), M(7-8inch), L(8-9inch) and LL(9-10inch). There are 3 other gradient colors (Orange Caramel, Baby Pink, Mint Banillia) and the same style is available in many single colors as well! Again, all colors/sizes have their own sales page.


I placed the order on July 11th and received an order confirmation by email. I was getting a bit nervous since my order didn't update from "Before Shipping", so I wasn't sure whether or not the order had been shipped already ^^; But then, I received a shipping notice on July 24th. It's been a while since I last ordered from FMD, but earlier my orders have been shipped within a few days. I don't know what was the reason for delay this time, but it doesn't really bother me.

I chose the registered airmail shipping, since it's cheaper, reliable and in my experience almost as fast as EMS. There is also a tracking number, so you can easily track your package :) It turns out that FMD still shipped my wig by EMS, as I got it delivered to my home :'D I'm not sure why they did that, but it was a pleasant surprise! The package also slipped through the customs.

I received the wigs yesterday on July 28th.

This is what the package looked like

One of the sides of the box had taken some damage during the shipping, but since there were just wigs inside, this didn't really worry me. There's no way the wigs would be damaged, unless the box was cut in half or something XD

FMD had marked the package as a gift and declared the wigs with a value of $10

This is how the wigs were packed inside the box

There were two "plastic pillows" as padding inside the package to ensure even safer delivery :)

The wigs were packed inside plastic bags, with protective cardboard around them. I forgot to take a picture, but there was a ball of paper inside both of the wigs too.

Overall, I think the wigs were packed just perfectly :)

FMD always sends lovely little hairpins as a free gift with purchase! ♥ I'm happy especially with the strawberry hairpin, since Marissa (the doll I got the red wig for) often uses strawberry-themed accessories! The gift pins are random, so this was such a funny (but awesome!) coincidence x3 The pink hairpin is cute as well and I'm sure my girls are gonna end up fighting over it...

Moving on to the wigs themselves! Let's take a look at Marissa's wig first :)

[FMDS M_20] Cherry Wine in S size (6-7inch)

I really, really love this wig! ♥ The style is super adorable and looks great on Marissa, the color is also gorgeous! I think it appears a bit more red in photos, but in person the shade is colder and closer to wine red, like in the sales photos. I'm extremely happy with the wig quality-wise too!

There are only a few little things that I thought I'd point out. These are not something that would bother me, so I'm mentioning them just for the sake of the review :)

The top of the wig looks like this. There is a tiny bold spot where you can see the wig cap, but it actually looks quite natural, like skin, so I'm not bothered by it at all. I rarely photograph my dolls from this angle either :D

There are a few short flyaways on top of the wig, but you can easily just cut them off.

Besides these few "flaws" (which I don't really consider flaws since they're so minor) this wig is just perfect!

Here's what Marissa looks like with her horns and the cute strawberry hairpin we got as a gift from FMD ♥

Marissa seems like a whole different doll now :D I feel like this wig made me love her more than I did before~ I'm really satisfied that I chose to get this wig for her ♥

Then we'll check out Deri's wig!

[FMDL-1093G] Grey Purple in L size (8-9inch)

Just look at that beautiful gradient! ♥

The top of the wig looks great, there are no flyaways and the wig cap doesn't show through either!

The color of this wig is absolutely gorgeous! I really like how soft the gradient is and how there are different color fibers mixed in throughout the wig :3 The quality is awesome, even better than the first wig!

My one and only complaint would be the bangs, though. They don't really look like in the sales photos, but I feel like this is quite common with wigs that have straight bangs. There are also differences in different doll heads, even if they wear the same wig size, and I often feel like the bangs of (especially) SD sized wigs would look better on dolls that have wider and higher foreheads.

I like styling and cutting my dolls' wigs, so it was no problem for me to just cut the bangs a little bit to suit Deri better :)

So this is what the wig looked like before:

And this is what it looks like after cutting the bangs:
I LOVE it now ♥

A simple example styling with pigtails, a pearl hairband and some self-made hair bows >:3

So overall, I'm extremely happy with the wigs I got~ They're just as pretty as I was hoping them to be ^^ All the positive things about them overlap the minor negative things, so in the end I don't really have anything bad to say and my ordering experience was 100% happy ♥ I'm sure I'm going to order more wigs from them in the future as well~

Lastly, I took a photo as a thank you for FMD~ ♥ I really loved making this review and looks like my girls are loving their new wigs as well ^w^

Hope you liked this review and maybe even found it useful! If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer :)

  1. I love gradient wigs and I'm glad to find another company who does them! I think Deri's is my favorite, and I am glad to see you can style the wigs, too!

    1. Yeah I love gradient wigs too! I hope FMD will make even more gradient styles in the future :) Thank you <3

  2. Both very nice wigs! :D
    Your girls look really great, but it all came together when you styled them up. *___* Love it!

    1. Thank you, love to hear that! ♥ I really like styling wigs and adding little accessories to spice them up :3

  3. Wah, I love the gradient wig a lot :O I didn't even know they had those types of colors now! I'd best go check it out! I love how you cut the bangs, before that, they really didn't look like the promotional picture :O

    For flyaways you can also wash/condition the wigs. it seems to help a lot :O

    1. It's really pretty! Do check out their selection, there are so many lovely wigs on their site :3 And thank you! I have cut the bangs on a few wigs earlier too, it really helps~

      Oh yes! I don't like applying any hair products on the wigs though, I prefer using just water, but that already works wonders :3

  4. The gradient wig is so cute! Love those colors, and congrats on doing the sponsored reviews!! :D

    1. I'm really in love with this wig! If only I could get it in human size as well XD And thank you ^^

  5. Both of your lovely girls look great in those wigs. It suits their styling really well.

    I haven't ordered from FMD for a few years now. Last time I ordered, like you, it was shipped within a few days. I think they have changed now and most wigs are pre-order unless there's an in-stock sticker on them. I also never received hair clips with any of my FMD orders but again that was a few years ago so maybe they have changed the way they do things now.

    What I love about them is their range of colours. And that red is very rich and vibrant. It photographs real well. (I had a similar style but same colour). I found them to be a perfect fit for my dolls when I had those wigs.

    Thanks for the review.

    1. Thank you dear ^^

      I believe that only the wigs in the pre-order section are not in stock, the rest should be... Though I could be mistaken. But anyway, I don't think that the waiting time was too long! I can't remember when I've ordered from FMD (surely within a couple of years), but I've always received free hair clips with my orders D: It might be a bit newer habit from them.

      Oh yes their range of colors is awesome! ♥ And the best thing is that they're not limited or anything, you could get them anytime you want (as long as they're not sold out).

      Great if you enjoyed the review~

  6. Oh I love FMD wigs and have so many of them...perfect for my Pukifees and Realfees as well as many of my larger dolls. FMD are so reliable and they have never given me any reason to complain...great people to do business with in my opinion.

    Your choices are lovely and look really pretty on your girls Safir. I really enjoyed reading your review. :)

    1. Not so many companies seem to sell wigs in the smallest sizes (like for Pukifees and Realfees), but FMD does, another great thing about them :) I definitely agree with you, I've never had any problems with them either and they're one of my favorite wig makers!

      Thank you so much~ ♥ Love to hear you liked the review ^^
