As I bunched my dolls together last night to take pictures, I realized that my little collection is very mixy-matchy. The head-sculpts are all from different companies, they have a variety of face-up styles, coloring, etc. The only real coherence comes from the outfits I've made for them. My aesthetic has always been catholic, though, so it makes sense my dolls would follow suit. However, it also occurred to me that other people might be turned off by my crew, and that other people might prefer a coherent collection. Matchy collections are often easier on the eyes, easier to dress, and are easier to photograph in some ways (try photographing a dark tan doll next to a white doll and you'll see what I mean). So, which do you prefer? Matchy or mixy? Do you think it's important to create a doll collection that's aesthetically pleasing as a group? Or do you focus, instead, on individual dolls and not worry too much about how they look next to your other dolls? I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the subject.
