BJD Challenge Day 15

What do your family think of your dolls?

I don't have much family. Or at least I don't have much contact with most of the family I have - except my son. He thinks it's cool that I have something I'm interrested in and love but is not really interrested beyond that. He does listen patiently if I tell him about my dolls and he was slightly interrested in Desmo being a vampire. (He likes vampires. LOL) I don't tell him a lot about them though. Don't want to strecth his patience too far. LOL

BJD Challenge Day 14

Have you ever had a floating head? What about a headless body? (What do you think you would do if you had either?)

Yup! I have two extra LittleFee faceplates that have their own eyes/wigs/personalleties/names and they count as heads, don't they?

I also have a Custom House Junior Ai Spia head. She has a face-up by Xhanthi and is called Rosala. And I have a MNF Lishe WS head that have eyes and I know I want her to have a pink wig but she needs a new face-up. I don't have any headless bodies. The only one I ever had was the old body my Lati Blue Censya had before she got a DollZone body. And I sold it soon after my Censys Linnea got her new body.

As for the LittleFees they are three sharing the same body and I'm not completely sure I'll ever get two more bodies. The ones sharing is Penny, Shilling and Secret. Secret still doesn't have a face-up though.

I plan to eventually get a body for both Rosala and my Lishe - DollZone both of them.

I also have three MNF sleeping heads that I hope to some day have modded open and given face-ups and stuff but I really don't count them and they are just in a box. They are no in any way "persons" yet.

BJD Challenge Day 13

Dollie shoes! Show us how many you have!

Okay you asked for it. I just hope everyone is sitting down.

This is not counting the ones they are all wearing at the moment. I am sane - really I am!

BJD Challenge Day 12

What do your friends think of your dolls/dolls in general?

First of all: Yes it's right there never was a day 11 question so it's not because I have messed up I haven't posted one. LOL

My friends have somewhat different reactions to my dolls. There's my friend who first brainwashed me into getting my first one and the friend I brainwa . . . ehhh inspired into getting one. Then there's one that just ignores them and some that think they are pretty but are not interrested beyond that. I also have a friend who finds it a little funny that I collect dolls. She thinks it's wierd in a sweet way. Basically I don't think I'd be close friends with anyone who were not tolerant and open enough to accept my dolls. I tend to not like narrowminded people that much. (And they tend to not like me that much either. LOL)


I love pacages

Today the mailman brought me a pacage from my wonderful friend Annefia. It was a box full of sweet and wonderful things. There were two PukiFee dresses and two tops for my PukiFee mermaid Mims that she crocheted herself, some cute little buttons, a set of jewellery, a seashell big enough for Mims to sit in and some other bits and pieces. My mood went up at least 10 points because og it. LOL I promise to take some pictures later.

You know it's wonderful to get a sweet and caring pacage like that but the love behind the pacage means even more than the pacage itself. It makes me feel loved.

BJD Challenge Day 10

Post a picture of a doll and an animal!

Since I don't have any live animals I can photograph with a doll I hope this will do. My hamster with his hamster. LOL

Quark (PKF Hamster boy) has named his hamster Booh! That way he can hide behind doors or sneak up behind people and shout BOOH! - and then claim that he was just calling for his hamster.

BJD Challenge Day 9

What is your least favourite size?

25 - 30cm adults like Barbie size. I think Amaryllis my Soom Mini Gem Uyoo elf is a lovely doll but the size is just not for me. She is beautiful though. See?

Also SDs are just too big for me and anything smaller than a PukiFee is just too small.

BJD Challenge Day 8

What is your favourite size?

That's a really hard question. I mean I can't really say because I love all the sizes I have MSD - 25 - 30cm kids like LittleFee and 16cm PukiFees. I don't like one of them more than the others.

However when I talk about 25 - 30cm kids like LittleFees I don't want them mixed up with 1/6 dolls that are adults and more or less Barbie size. They are very different from the kids.

BJD Challenge Day 7

Smallest size you own? (Have held/seen/like)

I have two Real Pukis but they are actually too small for me. I can't really do anything with them so they are just standing around looking cute. I do tend to go awwwww over the very small dolls (Like Squee 6cm) - I used to love small things, the smalle the better - but I can't really handle anything smaller than a PukiFee. (16cm)

When I was little my eyesight was very bad and I didn't get glasses until I was 6 years old. This ment that my moter skills weren't developed like they should have been and I still feel the consequence of that. Not that it really matters so much most of the time but it does when dealing with real tiny things. So no more dolls smaller than 16cm for me.

BJD Challenge Day 6

Biggest size you own? (Have held/seen/like)

The biggest size I own is MSD. So far my DollZone girls are the biggest with their 43cm but when I get my DollZone Mo in January he'll be the biggest since he'll be 46cm. The biggest size I've heldt is an SD - not sure wich one is the biggest though. Apart from the very first one (70cm) I saw - and held - I have heldt a few SDs at meet ups.

There's many very beautiful SDs that I admire but they are too big for me for several reasons. They are just too heavy and difficult to drag around, they are too expensive and they take up too much space.

When I say that they are too expensive it has to do with the fact that it would be difficult for me to save up for them ad long as there's smaller and much less expensive dolls I also want. I just don't have enough self-control when it come to money.

BJD Challenge Day 5

What/who was the very first BJD you saw?

The first BJD I saw in real life was a 1/3 (70cm) DollZone huy. I think it was a Yuu but I'm not sure. He was supposed to be Severus Snape. He belonged to a woman I ment on DOA who happened to live in the same town as me. We met and had coffee in the city and she brought her doll. This was back in March 2008

BJD Challenge Day 4

What/who was the first BJD you ever owned? Do you still own them? (Who is your planned first?)

The first one I ordered was Ilvara my DollZone 1/4 Feilian. However while I was waiting for her I bought three other dolls - one that was in stock and two off The Marketplace on DOA. So the first one I got was Ulja a Tinybear Moona. She has resently moved to live with my friend Asneth. Ilvara I'm not getting rid of EVER! I just love that girl so much. In some wierd way she is me - if that makes sence.

BJD Challenge Day 3

Post a picture of all your dolls!

Not a very good one but it was soooo difficult to get them all to fit into one photo. But here we go - even with my new arrival in the photo:


Katarina is here!

This afternoon the mail man delivered Katarina my DollZone 1/4 tan Annie to me. I think I'm in love! Take a look and then you might understand - even though she's much more beautiful in real life.

She looks much more serious than I thought she'd be but IMO she's very very beautiful. I really wish the photos could do her justice.

BJD Challenge Day 2

Do you own any? If so how many and if not, do you have any plans to at the moment?

I have 27 full dolls, two extra LittleFee faceplates with personalleties (and face-up eyes and wigs) and a head also with everything except a body. Then I have a MNF OE head with eyes and an idea of a wig but she needs a new face-up before becommimg a "person" and I have a blank MNF Juri 2010 head and three MNF sleeping heads but I have no imidiate plans for any of them. I also have three incomming dolls all DollZone 1/4 - a tan Annie that's been shipped and a WS Mo and a WS modded Annie that I have on layaway. The last two are second hand and from the same seller and I'll get them in January.

As for plans . . . I do plan to get a LittleFee Chiwoo - I already have a wig and I am waiting for the eyes I want to come in. I also want a LittleFee DES or Lishe with a custom face-up. I have both eyes and wig for her. I also plan to get rid of 4 dolls. I want Amaryllis my Soom MiniGem Uyoo Elf to go and live with my friend Annefia and I plan to sell my three CH kids.

And then there's all my wishes. At the moment the ones I wish for the most is a MNF Mirwin and a PukiFee Cupid . . . and perhaps a PukiFee Pong as well.


BJD Challenge Day 1

Why do you like BJDs?

I always loved dolls and BJDs are just the most amazing dolls ever. I love how they pose and how you can customise them yourself. And they are so beautiful. They just seem so alive to me. I love how not two dolls are completely the same. Like my two DollZone Feilians who are very different from each other.
