Heyla! I had bought my first doll partially because she bore a remarkable resemblence to an anime and light-weight version of me. When I made the decision to buy her a boyfriend to cuddle with, I decided, "Well, she looks like me, so why not buy her a boyfriend who looks like my husband?" I've found many candidates, many either out of my price range, sold out, or both, before finally settling on the doll called Orion from Angel Street, sold at Mint on Card. That turned out to be the best choice as, with the right wig, he'd look just like an anime version of my husband! Of course, now that I'm going to buy a doll who looks like my husband, I thought it would be incredibly cute if I bought dolls that looked like my close circle of friends. I'm even trying to convince my best girl friend to buy a dolly who looks like her, so my doll and her doll can be best friends. Now that I seem to be on a roll for with this accidental theme to my doll shopping, I couldn't help but wonder if there's anyone else, here, who bought a doll because it resemebled yourself or a loved one?
