Do you still have your first doll?

Oct 25, 2019

    1. No, I no longer have my first doll.

      He was a 20cm tiny (I don't remember the company, it was back in 2008), and after I got my first 60cm SD (Luts/CP Shiwoo), I realized that I prefer the larger dolls to the smaller ones. His character was a child of 12, and I don't really know what to do with child-dolls. Also, I kept dropping his shoes, his wig, and other parts, so I started carrying him in a sleeping bag when I went out, and it just looked weird for a grownup to be carrying around a teeny, tiny doll in a sleeping bag. :sweat

      The SD I got was him at age 35, and I didn't feel bad dressing him in tight rock star clothes and putting him in provocative poses for photoshoots. His 12 year old self was fun for cutesy shoots, but that got old after a while. He went to someone that loves tinies, and I'm sure he's spoiled now, just like I'm spoiling his 35 year old version.

      I did get him again in PKF and LTF child sizes, or at least faceplates for him as a child. I might find bodies for them someday.

    2. I do! She’s a Doll Love Nichi. I figure she wouldn’t be worth anything on the secondhand market, and I really am sentimental about her. I still love her sweet face.

      She really doesn’t fit in with my other dolls, but I don’t care.

    4. The boy in my profile was my first, my other boy was my second. I regret selling two of my previous dolls, but it is what it is.

    5. My first doll is long gone. I have no idea where it is now. I sold her to a friend who cut ties with everyone and started fresh one day. I tired visiting them once but they ghosted me and I've respected their choice and stayed away. No idea if they even have it still. It was a LOOOOOOOONG time ago.

    6. I still have my first doll with me and his name is Valerian. He’s a Akagi doll Tanta. I instantly fell in love with him the moment I saw him in one of my friends post.

      I don’t have the plan to sell my first doll because it is important to me. He’s the reason why I started this hobby. And he will be with me till the future. Though there are times that I want to sell him, I still find a way to love him more. And now he’s sitting with the rest of the gang happily.

    13. I still have my first doll which I bought second hand at an anime convention. She is an island Amy. Since, she is an msd size I don't plan to sale her in the future.
      I just bought a China cabinet style cabinet with glass doors to store all of mine in. They were in my spare bedroom before and didn't come out that often. But now, they are in my living room and I change their outfits all of the time.

    14. Yip. Both my boy and girl arrived on the same day, even though they were ordered at different times from different companies. It was 2005 and they were a Dollzone Megi and a Dream of Doll DOC Tender Zen.

      Megi will be getting a new face-up this year and hopefully modded with magnets in this headcap. You know a doll is old then they still have the evil finger pinching headcap. :XD:

      Zen still has her original factory peach face-up and just needs to be restrung at this point. She'll be getting a new wig, eyes and clothes though. (She's been stubborn about being styled, and has spent most of her time in her underwear) :sweat

      They're still nostalgic for me and I'd love to get the DOCs I couldn't afford at the time to join Zen. I have most of the old school DZs I wanted, except for Feilian.

    15. My first dolls are other people's first dolls that they sold, including my beloved ubiquitous KDF Bory, "Annix", who belonged to Spite and Malice. He's hella yellow but he's not going anywhere. Bory was my sculpt kryptonite when I saw him eight years ago though I've only owned my Annix for a couple of years. Him and my DZ Megi (waves at @Kaname Kimura ) are my babies. The one nice thing about buying dolls from people here is they all come with stories and were loved and treasured.

    16. Yep, he's still hanging around; sorry Deej, you ain't going anywhere. From 2006 to beyond!

    17. I still have mine. He's a Resinsoul Wu. I've had him for 8 years now, and I have no intention of letting him go.

    18. I do have my first doll! He is a Crobidoll Nao that I got off of Ebay in 2014 after first discovering BJDs. He wasn't in excellent condition when I purchased him, I'm afraid, and it can be very hard, even impossible to pose him sometimes, but I am never going to give him up (never going to let you down!). I'm very attached to him.

    19. Nope, my DZ Yuu was sold along with most of the rest of my original group years ago as I found sculpts that better fit my characters. The funny thing is that I thought I was going to be sticking to adult versions after that, but somehow I ended up replacing nearly all of my kids' group with new sculpts too... :sweat (My AoD Qian being the one remaining exception.)

    20. I don't have mine anymore because my collection evolved and I didn't feel as invested in her anymore, but I gave her to my mom a few Christmases ago and she still has her :)
