Choosing your first doll - How hard was it for you?

Jun 27, 2011

    1. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I only had $400 including shipping. I want my first to be tan girl and Msd size. So with those requirements I started my search.
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      I couldn't find anything I liked better.
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      Because I'm still waiting for her I get a little nervous about whether or not I'll like her.
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      I choose a Tan Dollzone Annie
      extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      My parents gave me $200 for my birthday to do whatever with.
       
    2. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      He caught my eyes the moment I saw him *-*
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      When I first saw him! I told my gf to never sell him away to other people because I'll get him from her!
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      I'm very to have him! I love him to bits! But I wish I'd have gotten a new body for him T~T
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      A hybrid CP EL. ^___^
       
    3. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I read a lot about him here on DoA.
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      As soon as I saw his face I fell in love.
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      I absolutely love him and would not trade him for anything.
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      A bobobie tiny Lucky and yes I do.
       
    4. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I wrote "BJD" on ebay and I found my gorgeous KDF Bory !

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      I totally fell in love with him.

      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      Oh no, I'm so happy with my boy. I never wish I had ordered another one.

      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      He is a Kid Delf Bory boy and he is still with me.
       
    5. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first? I really wanted something cost-efficient in case I felt the hobby wasn't right for me, and also because that was the limit. My parents didn't want me to spend more than that on something I might not like, which was a good idea. I at first wanted an AoD Liu Yin, but after seeing owner pics, her eyes were too cat like for the character. I really took a gamble with a new company, which had few reviews, but all positive, but I was so in love with 5Star Emma....Her eyes seemed to tell a story, and despite looking smiling, the slight droop of her eyes made her sad. I was in love and still am~

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first? She met the requirements of being cost efficient and someone I was looking for.

      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one? Not at all! she turned out to be very versatile. I wish that I had been able to get a more well-known doll I wanted at the time, a SOOM MD, but that's also a risk as a first doll ^_^;

      Which doll was your first and do you still own it? My 5Stardoll Emma is still with me~

      extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present? I was limited in choosing, but 50% is money that I scrounged up from $20 dollar allowances for a while...the rest, my mother payed.
       
    6. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      As soon as I saw her sweet little face I knew she had to be mine! It was love at first sight.
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      The second I saw her first photo. Every photo after that made me lust after her even more.
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      HELL NO! I will never ever get rid of her, no matter how much my doll taste may change in the future - I believe i will always have a soft spot for her.
       
    7. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I only had $400 including shipping. so i looking for a doll in that amount )
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      when i saw a promo foto
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      no
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      I choose a Snow-Sing from Doll Love and yes i still own it
      extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      it was my own money
       
    8. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      Back then, when I just found this hobby, I searched/goggled for info on these dolls and stumbled upon a little BJD forum where I asked a bunch of questions and inquiring what doll would fit this description. "Moody Prince, with a bad attitude." Yeah, cliche, I know. XD

      The forum owner then showed me a bunch of websites/dolls and then I saw him.
      The doll I thought was just perfect for the character.

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      When I keep going back to the website and ogling at his pictures, haha.

      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      When I received him, I was very excited but that excitement/rush faded within a few days and I knew it was a mistake ordering him. He wasnt what I wanted at all. I just bought him on a whim and I wished I had research more before plunging in.

      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      He's a Dollzone MO and no, I sold him a while back after I had him for two years. I felt nothing but relief.
      He's beautiful but TOTALLY didnt suit my tastes at all so it's better for him to go to a better and more loving home.


      Extra question:
      Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      Of course I was able to choose it! And my awesome dad bought him for me so I guess it's kinda a present!
       
    9. My first doll was megu, suddenly was electric to, to now put it down.
       
    10. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      That time, I never thought about having one, Until I found her on someone's blog. I fell in love and decided that it must be her.
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      She's just so cute. I can't resist to look at the mold everyday.
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      No, I didn't. In fact I regret that I should buy her a twin!
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      Yo-tenshi hinata and Yes!
       
    11. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I was looking for my first doll a few years. Accidentally, I found Villemoart page, and there I saw her. I immediately fell in love with her sad face ^_^
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      I could look at her for hours and come back time after time on page and then look for more new photos.
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish/did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      No, definitely not
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      Dollzone Kimi, and she's still with me

      Extra question:
      Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      I have bought her with my own money
       
    12. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      It was kinda hard at first because my friend shown my so many different site. So one by one I slowly narrow down to a few site i really loved and would buy again from. Then look at each site of the price ranges that I could afford for now. Then I fell in love with the Dream of Doll site. Then I looked at the Dream of Teen dolls. I knew I want male and one I really wanted to show off to people. :)
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      Well I was looking at the different limited dolls and knew I would like the Ducan head mold even if it was not an elf.
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      Nope I love Ducan since he is my first doll. :D
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      Ducan is my first doll and I still own him.
      extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      I was able to choose my doll
       
    13. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I was window shopping and after deciding on the 60cm size, I fell in love with the crobidoll yeon-ho scuplt

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?

      I was completely infatuated with his face and the default faceup was gorgeous.

      Did you get unhappy with your choice?
      I was alittle apprehensive when I was waiting for him to arrive, but once I saw him it was love at first sight.

      Do you wish/did you wish that you've ordered another one?

      Nope, I'm completely satisfied with my choice.

      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      Aiden is a Crobidoll Yeon-ho on a B&G type 2 boys body and yes, he's still with me.

      Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      I bought his head from crobidoll with my own money and recieved his body as a birthday present.

I was on jnky spot looking at every brand through and thriugh and subconiousky i always went back to him, long 70cm bbb. I was trying to turn myself away and get a small cheap obitsu but i just couldint get him out of my mind. Thats when i knew he was the one. I just cant wait to have him!
       
    15. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      Well, at first I was searching for something cheaper, something I could manage to save up for, but the moment I saw LinLin (5star tan Tong Tong), I fell in love.

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      The moment I looked at her pictures. She was in a reasonable price range, and she was so darling, I had to have her.

      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      No. I love her, and I'm really glad she is my first doll. She's easy to manage, and I love her so.

      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?

      LinLin is my first doll, and yes. xD I just got her.


      extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      I chose her. -Nodnod- I hope to get a present of a doll someday.
       
    16. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I went to a BJD panel and convinced myself i was gonna get one of them. It was a mostly volks panel, so that was the -only- company 3 i knew of. Anyways, so i started looking from sd 13 down....
      sd 13: too big....
      sd 10: too expensive...
      DDs: too expensive...
      MDDs: OOH ME GUSTA
      MSDs: mm, i think i'll go with the MD- OOOH MY GOD LOOK AT HOW CUTE SAKURA IS.

      ....and that's what happened
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      when i saw that face. i'm a sucker for sweet things. (no pun intended.)
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      *SCREAMS* NEVER. NEVER IN 100000 YEARS. but her wig is SO obnoxious, but that can be fixed, right? I still need a new one. =^=
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      Volks MSD Sakura. Yesh. Yesh i do.
       
    17. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      i was browsing many different websites trying to get a general idea about dolls when i came across Resin Soul. Their dolls are not only really pretty, but they're also pretty affordable!

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      When I found myself looking at her everyday, multiple times a day, and when I started planning outfits for her. Oh and gave her a name in my mind.

      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      Can't really say, I'm ordering her next week, but I've seen a LOT of dolls, and so far, she's my favourite based on looks and cost.

      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      This will be my first doll :D

      Extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      It is a present, but I'm choosing it. My fiance is paying for most of it, so I consider it a gift :lol:
       
    18. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I looked around a lot of dolls on ebay (didn't realize back then you could buy from companies, so I settled for dealers) Until I found one I realllly loved the look of.

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      When I automatically started plotting his character just from one look XD

      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      sort of? Due to insufficient packaging he came with a chunk smashed out of his head, that was heartbreaking. And it took months to sort everything out. So for a long time I was really upset and didn't want to play with him too much, because it just kept reminding me of all the problems and how they were still unresolved. But I never really wished I could have ordered a different doll.
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      My first doll was an Angel of Dream WangZi, and yes I still own him. I love him to bits ouo <3

      Extra question:
      Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?

      I did get to choose him, though he was half my own money and half a present
       
    19. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I saw a picture of her face and I was sold

      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      When I jokingly asking my husband if I could buy it and he said yes despite him knowing the ticket price. I know not to question fate.

      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?
      While waiting for her I did have moments of doubt. But now that she's home, I can't imagine not having her.

      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      Kaelyn and DOC Petsha and I've only had her for about a month. No plans to sell her.

      extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      It was a present for my b-day but I picked it out.
       
    20. How did YOU decide which doll should be your first?
      I got to know what is BJD after reading a fanfiction from the net...So the doll was actually an OC produced by the writer @A@...Which is Huika from HZ.
      I went ahead to read a little more about dolls and realised that I cannot move my eyes away from the boy and there i know,this is the one I really like!I ordered him first but....he came as the second later on=_=....I ordered another doll,Pan from RD few days later...I expected Huika to arrive first but he came 2months later and Pan came a week after I paid the sum...
      And when did you know that this doll should be your first?
      Both boys were gifts from my family :)...I knew it when I went to ask "Is he cute"?....The reply I got was "yes"
      And that's it XD!
      Did you get unhappy with your choice? Do you wish / did you wish that you've ordered another one?

      I am really happy about the two boys! However I do wish that I was quick enough to click on the ORDER icon when tanned 02 was still available :( Spent too much time.However that doesn't mean that I am unhappy about my choices :D...I just want another one.
      Which doll was your first and do you still own it?
      Pan from Ringdoll and yes,both Pan and Huika are equally pampered >///<
      extra question: Were you even able to choose it? Was it a present?
      They were presents and yes,I picked them myself!
