All I need is one doll. If you have one doll you will treasure it more. One doll is so much more special then having several. I’ll never be one of those crazy people with a room full of dolls. Maybe five dolls would be okay so I can have more charters and interactions. I’ll never have more then ten dolls. I have a lot of dolls but I’ll never be a crazy hoarder and spend all that money to have more than I need… *looks around the room at 20+ dolls* WHATHAVEIBECOME WHENDIDTHISHAPPEN

Reality check: you will never be able to buy all the dolls on your wishlist. So stop checking websites for new dolls and adding to the list. Be happy with what you already have, and stop pining after new dolls when you’ve just bought one.

Is it just me, or does every doll owner have “that” one doll that you can just see belongs to them, something that somehow connects them and give them this special vibe?

Yessssss! It’s not even anything about the doll that clues you in, it’s how the owner looks at the doll and you can just tell!

She probably doesn’t remember at least two people she asked to reinvite her to DoA, knowing she’d been banned, knowing what she could do to their accounts by doing this….. It’s okay to make mistakes. We’re all human, and we all do it. You’re young, and teenagers do dumb things (I was one too ya know). However, that does not absolve you from your responsibility, your dishonesty. How can you expect to maintain your business, your following with these kinds of behaviors? You are a talented, wonderful person Leilah. I hope you learn some responsibility and maturity from all this. I don’t want to spam you or harass you, but you owe it to the community to admit your mistakes and change.

…..
Ok wow this is seriously filthy behavior.

Just putting this out there for the record (not directing it at anyone in particular), I’m only posting these things because of the need for awareness. I really, really hope no one flames her or spams her. She’s still human and a young adult; tumblr can be a brutal place, so I hope we can fight that urge and still treat her with dignity. She effed up…a lot, but she CAN still change and grow from this.

Just a signal boost as I don’t want anyone to get in trouble on DOA for inviting someone banned.

Owning all of one company vs. having a hodge posh crew

bitterfox:

I was thinking of using this as a topic for the real blog, but eh.

I’m curious how people feel about owning all of one companies sculpts verses owning a few from various companies. My first was a Volks, and I’ve always stuck with them since because of the similar aesthetics and proportions they all have (though I think you could argue Volks has certain groups that sort of branch off look-wise). It just visually flows better, you know?

But I’ve also had huge crushes on sculpts from various small-time sculptors. I’ve always held off because of the whole “but the collection flowww!” issue that I seem to have.

So I’m curious how people with different sculpts from different companies deal with this. Does it not bother you? Or do you not take photos of Sculpt A with Sculpt B? Or are you like me and stick to one company while sighing wistfully over another? I’m really curious~

Oh man, I don’t own any two dolls from one company, they’re all different. Honestly maybe when I had about three or four dolls it looked odd but now that I have like 11 it looks less like an odd group and more like a sampler platter. A sampler of delicious dolls with all kinds of differences.

I have two minis, two yosd size, 5 SDs, one 70cm, one tiny.

Divided differently I have three girls 8 boys.

Divided by species: One human, one vampire, a god, a dryad, a dinosaur, two abstract concepts, one pseudo-vampire, an elf, a satyr, and an ethereal.

By company: One 5SD, one Resinsoul, One Angelsdoll, One Domuya, One Doll Leaves, an Impldoll, one Dollndoll/A Long Time hybrid, one heavily modded MNM/Mirodoll hybrid, 3 recasts, 

So yeah, I like samplers. I’m a little crazy though.

about half my collection is limited or event heads and it absolutely freaks me out! I keep thinking about them shattering on the floor into million of pieces or my house burning down with them inside. I wouldn’t be able to get replacements and it breaks my heart.

I share this fear because of my custom modded doll! 

This fear is why I am doing the insane work of fitting a custom made coffin with padding and safety straps!!! So there is padding and an inch of finished pine between him and the rest of the world.
