The Artist

Sam SzczesnyHello! My name’s Sam, AKA Shadowed Force. I’m a 22 year old web developer who also has a large collection of BJDs. I started doing faceups in 2012, which is when I got my first doll, and opened my beginner shop in 2013. I always wanted to help other collectors create the doll of their dreams, which is why I am where I am!

I began collecting in college, which is where I continued my love for the web. I graduated in May of 2016 from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a Bachelors of ScienceĀ in Graphic Communications. I now live in Fargo and am working for one of the fastest growing businesses in North Dakota as a web designer.

When I’m not playing with my dolls, I’m either playing video games, cosplaying, or playing with my cat. I often attend anime conventions, the most common being Anime Fargo or Anime Detour. I’m a lover of RPG, puzzle, horror, and thriller games, with story being an important aspect to me.

My Doll Collection

You can find all of my doll profiles on my Tumblr. I find that my collection is always growing and changing, with hybrids constantly coming about and new characters developing after a love-at-first-sight situation.
