I’m afraid I’ve already made some bad impressions on the nearest bjd community close to me and I haven’t even meet them in person.

What the hell is wrong with this person on DoA. Says she’ll sort transactions out when there’s an issue then doesn’t. Makes excuses and lies about losing receipts (my purse was stolen! I threw it away!) then her friend has to get involved to sort her mess out while she ignores her buyers and happily reblogs stupid shit on tumblr and stays off DoA. I would never buy or sell anything to her. Not after she forced a seller to refund her before sending the item back. Wonder if people will know it is.

All the negativity in this hobby makes me super sad.  Everyone is so judgey about others’ dolls, accessories and face-ups.  If you don’t have the fanciest dolls with the expensive fullset clothes and face-ups by popular artists, you’re apparently just trash and don’t even deserve to have dolls at all???  I went to one convention and will never bother going again, it was just so catty, negative, and unfriendly.  I just want to collect dolls and make them pretty, and be part of a community of people who want the same.  Can’t we all just doll in our own ways - cheap, high end, fancy, simple, yarn wigs and wigs made of unicorn pubes, and just have FUN rather than tearing each other down?

What’s up with Iplehouse’s “rewards program”? The coupons you would get for the amount of money you spend wouldn’t be significant even if you hoarded them for a couple of years, so why do they expire and why does your membership status reset at the end of each quarter? Did I read that wrong? Supia, which is a smaller company than IH, has a better rewards program. I don’t get it.

I feel like because I’m a guy, people compare me to my male dolls. I feel guilty when I eat, especially in front of them.

I have this friend, she is poor so when I shattered my Bobobie doll head I told her I would give the body so she could start her own collection. Some girl in a FB group heard about it and told me how rude I was because I have money to give the body of a broken doll to a friend. Its insane how people act when they are jealous of what you can do or have.

I have a tendency to impulse buy. Even though it’s frustrating to see a doll or an accessory that I love but that I don’t have the money to get, I’m grateful that I can’t buy whatever I want whenever I want it. Having to wait and save up helps me figure out which dolls and accessories I really want, and which ones I’m just drawn to in the moment.

I love how much Bobobie’s Apollo sculpt looks like Bertholdt from Attack on Titan. The sculpt came before the anime, but it is such a perfect match! I can’t wait to make a tribute doll for Bertl!

Army-of-me’s Dollspirit Hoya was the first bjd I ever saw. One look through her flickr and I was hooked.

I really enjoy BJDs, don’t get me wrong, but I enjoy characters in everything that are facially expressive. I have a hard time attributing a personality to something I’ve only seen with one expression.
