(since tumblr hasn’t been accepting my posts lately!)
The variety of options! I feel that (depending on your specific venues you hang out in) BJD people can find their own place with like-minded persons, whether they just buy and collect limited edition dolls, faceup/mod, focus on photography, or roleplay. All of these aspects are considered valid, from appreciators to active collectors to community leaders.
#23 Is there a part of the BJD hobby that you dislike?
Huh, maybe the collectors? I mean, there are some real douchebags in the hobby *coughcough pathological liars that won’t stfu about the stuff they supposedly buy and how everyone rips them off* or subforum moderators that post boo-hooing about individuals not getting enough replies to their thread posts, but you get that with any group. The only thing that really annoys me with any luxury hobby whether it be lolita, blythe, bjd etc is the absolute fucktards who not only spend government-issued sustainence money on these frivolous hobbies, but that brag about doing so while thumbing their noses at the public.
21) One doll that you love, but will (probably) never buy?
Yo-tenshi Hinata, or YOSD Chinatsu. Hinata because I seriously doubt I’ll find her at a decent price (curse you, tenshis) but I love her cute, smirky smile! and Chinatsu because a certain Reggie contains such a strong personality that I’d have a difficult time identifying my own.
Volks Anais! I have this fantasy that Volks will have a NY Dolpa, and I’ll like…win a couple hundred (or thousand) in the lottery a couple months prior, and several us from TDAF will take a group trip and of course that year Anais will be offered and it will be magical and I’ll get one. lmao
but I’m so fucking tired. hado being on nights really kills me, because there’s NO way to get more than 5 hours consecutive sleep.
Also, I should be starting my display blouse/skirt- at least cutting out the pattern tissue. Instead I’ve got the two nude Cuties completed- but I really want to sew the brown one. Except I wasn’t able to buy the appropriate colour thread/hair-floss today. I’ve got Joie sitting here on the hardrive wanting something frilly to wear, and my Mango blythe taunting me in pieces (while I await her chips, and fine sandpaper to finish prepping her face). Sariel needs to be RIT-dyed except I can’t find the liquid dye any more. I guess I’m in a faceupping mood@
Okay, so Blythes (at least mine) come with this super-lame flesh-coloured pull ring. Boooring! I’m eyeing up an etsy seller who does custom glitter rings (as well as various other glitter cast accessories) versus random charms and then I noticed this idea on coolcats. Something I can use those deco-sticks on!
hado helped me get the eye-mech out so current task is additional sanding/modding of Mango’s faceplate. I think I need to do her faceup before deciding what I want to do with the eyelids; color, whether I want eyelashes, etc.
