I couldnt find a topic like this anywhere so if it exists please delete this one! I dont usually start discussions of my own but this is a problem Ive been having recently. So I dont own very many dolls yet, but in my frugal nature I find that the ones I do purchase are the limiteds. Companies like Soom and Iple own my wallet because of the sale periods, Im guilty of getting caught up in the "now or never!" moment and I hit the buy button. I have "regular" dolls on my wish list, but they always get pushed aside for buying a doll whose only on sale for 3 weeks. Now, the only dolls I own are very limited by the company and hard to find here on the boards. Because of this I worry about taking them outside for photoshoots or to accompany me on vacation or the store, etc. If they were to get lost/stolen/damaged it would be very difficult to replace them. I was wondering if there are other people in the same rut as me, I love my dolls and their characters dearly but I feel that I cannot enjoy them the way that other doll lovers do because I am afraid of losing them. At the same time, should I compromise for a doll whose sculpt I like less just so that I can have fun without reserve? So I was wondering, Do you treat your limited dolls differently than your regular release dolls? Do you feel more comfortable expressing creativity through colors/painting/modding on a doll that is not limited? Have you ever compromised a characters sculpt because you did not want to be held back by the limitations of a limited doll?
