BJD Meme

This is a BJD meme moptech found in flickr, and asked the MM folks to do a little over a week ago.^_^

1. From all the dolls you own, who is your favorite? Why?


          Joshua/Yoshiya. My favoritism between him and Ceth is so blatant that even my family has picked up on it, lol. Ceth has gone to visit 4 different MM members' homes now, while Josh will never, ever leave me. He's the doll who got me into this hobby, the single sculpt who has really 'called' out to me (very, very strongly), and the one who keeps me and my main muse centered. I'd hate to come home from a bad day and not have Josh there to hold.~_~

2. Explain how you managed to get into BJD collecting.
          One of my online friends in the US received an RS Yao for her birthday last year. I offered to buy her (the Yao) a wig as my late birthday gift to her (my friend). She picked one from ndoll, who was still a dealer for Souldoll back then. I saw D.Maillo, my muse insisted it was her missing brother...and then Souldoll announced he was being discontinued 4 days later.x_X After a lot of encouragement from my officemates and MM members, I bought him (and Ceth) even though my mother was very much against his price. Still is, actually.


That's niisan!


3. Name the very first doll you ever bought.
          Headwise, Joshua, a Souldoll Soulkid D.Maillo. I ordered Ceth (Maillo) about a week later, and he came home together with Josh as a floating head. Ceth now uses the body Josh came with however.


Just look at that picture. That body was meant to be Ceth's.xD;


4. Which doll do you plan to buy next?
          Plan? What plan? Trish, my first (and probably only) MSD girl and my main muse.^_^ (See #12.)

5. Are you currently waiting on any dolls?
          Ahahaha...um. Parts of?^^;

6. How many dolls do you currently have?
          2 full dolls, Joshua and Cethrel Jean Kyriel, and a headless body.@_@



7. Name the very last doll you bought.
          Headwise, Ceth. But Josh was completed later. (Explanation in #3.)

8. What is the worst thing about this hobby?
          The expenses and the scalpers. But we'll never be rid of both so.=/ Also, people who discriminate between companies. I've encountered one such person (anti-BBB) and the conversation made me extremely uncomfortable....

9. What is the best thing about this hobby?
          The dolls of course!♥ My single creative output is writing, so I don't really share the fun most owners have in customizing their resin kids. I do love my boys though, and they're something of an emotional investment for me. As I've mentioned above, Josh keeps me and my muse centered. Ceth, on the other hand, is a very sweet boy who tries to keep me happy-- and healthy. He regularly reminds me not to overexert myself and to get rest when I should.x3


So relaxed~.♥ These two have kept me from tearing my hair out in the office several times now.


10. Which is your best dolly photo?
          I'm not really big on the photography-side of the hobby so I'll have to go with these:


          I took these during their first morning together as two, full dolls. I love the colors and their expressions.

11. Which is your favorite BJD company?
          Souldoll, if only because they gave me Joshua.

12. What dolls are on your wishlist?
          Oh boy...


Trish - RS Mei or Soom MD Sueve - Messenger of Heaven (Sold Out LE). BBB Sprite had been my top choice until recently, but I've come to hate her nose in the past couple of weeks. When I saw Sueve I instantly fell in love with her, and then realized she looked a lot like RS Mei with the above owner pic (by DoA member BaileyRose). RS Mei was my first choice for Trish and now she's back up there on the top of the list.♥


Peter/Hiver - Souldoll Shaun in Sandy Brown Skin or WithDoll Taren "Surfing Boarder". More likely the former than the latter, 'cause Taren is LE and ylden likes him too.xD;


Cierno Angelo "Helios" Arca - Tender Too head on an MNF body? Soulkid body? IDK man but definitely not the childlike DOC body. We were going to place him on the headless Implbody that I have but, lol, SO not going to work out (Implchildren are thiiiin).

And others...

tiny!Trish comes from the fact that I need a tiny in my life, and that I need another girl in my group to balance out the boys but don't have any other female characters. Top choice is Littlefee Elf El on a girl body (I've wanted 'her' even before I decided on a tiny) followed by Fantasydoll Glen/Amber, HDF Epi, and Ddoll Bobo.

Revo and ?>?? - Crobidoll Zion, but only if Jan gets his twin brother from Crobidoll as well.

13. Are there any dolls you wished you had never purchased?
          Sometimes I wonder about Ceth and I've once considered reshelling him into a Bimong Narin43 N411 Butterfly. But I love my not!twins, so that was a no go.

14. Who's your favorite faceup artists?
          I haven't availed of anyone's services so I can't really say. Artists whose awesome work I have seen personally though are Ricci of BlueSand Face-up Shop and POTU of FabulaRasa Aesthetics. Ceth has a BlueSand face-up and I'm planning to commish Anj for Helios'./o/

15. What is a must when considering a dollie purchase?
          The 'calling' or, if you believe such a thing doesn't exist, that he or she fits the character you have in mind. When I learned that D.Maillo was going to be discontinued, I actually sought out 'similar' sculpts. Several MM members told me not to settle, and I'm glad they did. I don't think I could have been as happy with a different sculpt for Joshua. Never settle, but watch your wallet.

IDK teh. Puro yung male (Tuff) lang nakikita ko sa MP e, and sold for almost twice their original price. Tips naman dyan. And how much is how much? Carry pa ba kung 2x/3x the original price dahil lang LE? /hates scalpers.DX

Haha. May cheaper bet naman ako so OK lang. But I think I'll put up a WTB na rin, malay mo may magprisinta. May nakita ako sa DoA Graveyard na nakuha ng 400 e, baka swertehin din.
