About this group:

This group is all about inspiration and fun with photography.
Each month we will provide a list of words, as well as a theme.
Your job is to pick any of the words, or focus on the theme (or even both, should you so choose) and portray it through photography.

:bulletyellow: Please do not submit recasts! This group is for official ball joint dolls only.
:bulletyellow: This group's focus is on ball joint doll photography. (Resin, or Dollfie Dream types only please.) This group is not for Blyths, or Monster High dolls, or others of their types no matter how beautiful they are.
:bulletyellow: Please write the word and/or the theme as well as the name of the group in every submission. Failure to do so will result in your submission not getting accepted.
:bulletyellow: Submissions are limited to one per day.
:bulletyellow: Please only submit one photo from a shoot. If you took ten that could work for one theme, only submit your favorite. (However, for some themes or words story-telling is allowed by compiling more than one picture into a single image.)
:bulletyellow: Please note, this group is designed to spark creativity in you. Only submit new photos for a Spark.
:bulletyellow: Please put effort into your photography. Blurry, unfocused, or messy photos will not be accepted unless it is specifically done for a theme.
:bulletyellow: You are not restricted to working on just the current themes. At any time you are allowed - even encouraged - to use past Sparks.
:bulletyellow: This group is not designed to be a gallery for your artwork. If you are simply looking for a place to show off photos, please look elsewhere. (We have many Affiliates who would be more than happy to accept your photos.)

Would the head fit on the body and look OK? =/

Along with what Pikko said -

Obitsus and BJDs can hybridize, I'm just not sure how it's done? I've seen - I believe - a Doll-Zone Megi girl on a 50cm Obitsu body, but I can't find any of her photos right now. So, in theory, yes? You'd have to do something about the neck mechanism and it should be fine.

That being said I am 100% that those heads are recasts (bootleg/illegal copies) and are not something you should be buying. Not only does the quality of those particular recasts look horrible, but owning a recast in this hobby is a death-sentence and incredibly harmful on the doll companies and community as a whole. If you are looking for a cheap BJD head to practice with, might I suggest the Doll-Family H practice heads? (Link is to MintonCard, an authorized dealer for Doll-Family and many other companies.) My neighbor has one of the MSD heads and he's pretty cute~

You might also consider looking into Luts Event Heads, as those can be very cheap to buy secondhand and very cute! (I love all four of mine.) Many companies offer affordable heads, and you can always browse the second-hand market to find even better deals.

Thanks for the help =) I'm stupidly poor and I'm just looking for the cheapest so my family doesn't freak xD

Believe me, I get that. I've saved up pennies to buy my dolls and it's not always easy. (I was 16 when I first got into the hobby and bought my own dolls myself.) If your heart isn't set on the Obitsu body, might I suggest looking into Resinsoul? There are loads of absolutely beautiful Resinsoul dolls that you can get in a large selection of colors C: (And they'll do custom colors too!) I've got three different MSDs in my house right now from them that were $100 or less C: The larger SD dolls are very affordable too, and again, if buying second-hand doesn't bother you you can usually find a lot of different ones for sale in a lot of different places.

I'm not to familiar with Obitsu dolls, so i'm not sure how the head would attach on that body since they have a internal skeleton system. I'm sorry, I wish I could be of more help!!
