Hujoo Wings {Closed Eye} - Information and Review (Picture Heavy)

Hujoo is a Korean brand of BJD.
I have also received two of them in the past month. They both came from the lovely website, The Junky Spot.
I am relatively new to this brand of doll, but I have very quickly fell in love with them. I am going to do a review of the dolls and show off some of the photos I have taken.

My Hujoo Wings is named William.

 My Hujoo Wings is currently wearing a DollZone 44cm wig in Light Blonde, and a pair of Hujoo Animetic 20mm eyes in Silver.

Hujoo Wings sitting with arms behind back and legs out in front of him. He has his silver eyes in and his light blonde wig on. He is wearing a pair of handmade pants.

As with my Hujoo Berry I have no purchased any clothing for my Hujoo Wings. I prefer to make his clothing from hand also. So I cannot honestly say what brands or size clothing fit him the best.

The Hujoo Wings has the same internal eye system that the Hujoo Berry has. The same two rubber holders that attach to the posts inside of the head.

The rubber eye holders

The inside of the Hujoo Wings head. The posts are similar to the posts of a Hujoo Berry. The eye system is held in identical, on the two smaller posts and the two larger posts behind the elastic. But you can see one of the larger posts inside of the Hujoo Wings head actually has a metal post coming up from it. The head also lacks the smaller alignment post at the base of the head that the Hujoo Berry has.

I have found it much easier to install the eyes by putting them into the rubber, then attaching the rubber to the small bottom post then putting the bigger post in. I hold the elastic on another finger while I am installing the eyes.

You can see that the eyes inside my Wings also has the posts to allow me to move the direction he is looking easily.

Posing with the Hujoo Wings is very similar to posing the Hujoo Berry. They are strung very similar. The biggest difference I have noted was where the elastic was tied inside of the doll. On the Berry the knots were above the eye posts. In the Wings I have noticed the knots are inside of his chest area.

The knee joints of the Hujoo Wings are the same as the Hujoo Berry.

The hip joints have the same locking notches as the Berry has.

Here you can see the small locking mechanism inside the hip joint. This allows them to stand easier.

The arm is strung the same as the Hujoo Berry. As you can see the shoulder does actually move (it does on the Berry also.)

Again the elastic is run through the wrist and back up.

The elastic runs down to both legs in the Wings.

Here you can see the actual difference in knotting area of the dolls. The Wigs has all it's knots inside of the chest.

The head still has the elastic going straight into it before it loops on the eye posts.

The back of the head has the same locking notch system as the hips have, allowing the Wings to look up, down, and straight forward without the head moving.

The front of the neck also has the notch locking system.

The Hujoo Wings seems to pose in many of the same ways the Hujoo Berry does. They hold their poses about the same.

Hujoo Wings stands well on his own, while one hand is hooked in the pants and the other is outstretched.

The Wings can also kneel and sit up on it's own.

Where the Wings is actually tilted at the waist joint to look downwards, while his legs are crossed in a meditative position. He sat very well like this without much difficulty.

Standing on his own and using both hands to hold up a rather large item. (The Raven he is holding is named Vivi and is his personal "pet", this was also entered in a contest)

Standing with head tilted upwards slightly while one arm is behind him and the other is reaching upwards.

This position took a while to get him to stay in but eventually it worked. He has one foot flat on the ground the knee bent, and he is sitting on the other knee. He has one hand on the top of the Raven's head and the other under his beak. He is sitting without support.

The Wings is standing without support with the waist joint bent downwards while his arms are crossed in front of him. He also has his head tilted slightly down. (The Rat's name is Umbra, he is one our family pets, he wouldn't let the doll sit on him)

As you can see the Wings doll even holds it's pose while on a moving creature. (This Rat is Okami, our other family pet, and he didn't mind the doll on him)

Laying down both dolls are able to remain posed without issues, you can see the similarity between their joints

Again both dolls kneeling without issues and obviously easily staying posed here as well. Wings is holding the rake with both hands, but it is not supporting him in any manner.

As for the Hujoo dolls, these are the two that I own and can give a personal review about. I think they both are easy to pose and extremely enjoyable.
