I've dropped a BJD before and caused damage to the face. Over the years, I have accidentally damaged BJDs, dolls, toys, and things I collect.. from scratches, to flat out breaking them into pieces. I try to be as careful as I can but sometimes mistakes happen. It makes me very very sad as the items I collect are usually hard to get, they don't make them anymore, and are expensive. We spend so much time searching for our item, wait so long for it to arrive, and spend so much money. So to have it become "ruined," no matter how small the flaw, doesn't feel good. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for what I have but preventable damage over certain cherished items can bring guilt/disappointment. A human can heal from the injuries and wounds, but a doll or toy cannot. I think it's the most difficult part of the hobby for me, to see something that was once so perfect in condition, end up deteriorating when it could of been prevented. So I'd like to start a thread where we just all talk about the damage we have done to our dolls/precious things to feel less bad about it, or more desensitized. We often talk about getting or creating our doll and less about "ruining" it. Please let me know details/stories of how you have damaged your precious doll. I hope we can all make each other feel better about these mistakes and laugh about it.
