Hello! I got my first doll a little over 2 years ago now, my beloved Faust, a Switch Sohwa on the 65cm body, and my family has never been judgemental about him! Perhaps a little weirded out at first but they accept me and all of my ~quirky~ hobbies completely. However, this has not stopped me from feeling kind of embarassed and perhaps even mortified about bringing a second doll into the home I share with my mother and younger siblings. On a conscious level I know they would most likely just sigh and say "another one, is this one just as heavy?" and laugh at me trying to get the doll into some clothes. But I really cannot help the slight feeling of embarassment as I currently sit here, writing in my info to partake in Switch's 10th year anniversary lottery for (hopefully, fingers crossed) my second doll. This will NOT stop me from applying nor getting the doll, absolutely no way, but did anyone else start out feeling a keen sense of embarassment when they were new in the hobby or when they had to introduce their family to it? I'm not quite sure if it's the price that's causing me to feel this way, it may very well be. But it is my own money and they all know how expensive Faust was so it's not like that would be news. I didn't feel like this with Faust at all, but I suppose that could have been the excitement of finally getting a doll after pining for a BJD for almost 10 years. tl;dr: I'm applying for a lottery to hopefully get my second doll. I live with my family that didn't mind my first doll at all, but I suddenly feel kind of embarassed about getting a second doll and letting them see it. Has anyone else experienced this? What kind of reactions have you gotten from your own families?
