Do you still have your first doll?

    1. I do, almost 12 years down the line my DOD Homme Ducan is still with me, here's for 12 more!

    3. Dollzone Megi was my first. I could never get rid of him.
       
    4. My Fairyland Littlefee Shiwoo boy was my first. He was in stock so arrived very fast from Germany. He was the most spoiled of my dolls for a long time till my Minifee arrived.
      He was so cute and lovely even without a wig. It took me ages before getting him one as I was struggling with the sizing.
      He was meant to be a girl originally, so I bought a Littlefee girl to swap bodies. To cut a long story short, when the girl arrived several months later because she wasn't in stock (steeeeep learning curve there), the skin colour was too different for my taste. Not that I haven't put him in long wigs etc. but somehow he chose to keep his original body.
      I remember having a lot of difficulties choosing between the various Littlefee sculpts. I had a lot of trouble seeing the difference between Leah and Bisou for instance. I had to search for owners' pictures to really appreciate how different the sculpts were.
      I nearly didn't buy him. My first choice was a Littlefee Chiwoo boy though I wanted him in tan, something that wasn't available at the time. Then I came across these lovely photos of Shiwoo in a medieval/sorcerer settings if I recall well and the rest is history.
      And yes, I still have him, it had been a lovely first transaction. He still has his original face up and cheers me up every time I take a picture of him.
       
    5. Yes, I'm not sure if I really like any of my other dolls more than my first bjd. I bought him in 2014. I tried to buy a different doll from an individual on eBay in 2010 but they tried to scam me. I was put off for a long time, but regularly admired a doll offered by an official dealer on eBay for years. Jeremy is a Popodoll Chen, he's 68cm because I didn't want one that seemed like a toy. I never had anything nice before that was just for me. I think after so many years of working hard and putting myself last consistently, I deserved him. He will probably be part of my estate sale someday.
       
    6. My first doll was my Boy&Girl Sky and I could never get rid of him. And even if I did want to, there's no point trying because he's an 11yr old "white skin" doll... more like banana skin doll at this point :lol:
       
    7. I still have my first doll at home with me :) her company released a new body so she did get a body upgrade but her head is still the original. I remember looking for months and months at several dozen companies but she was the one I saw and was like "Yes she's the one". I tastes have changed quite a bit since then but I still love her and don't think I'd ever sell her. Throwback to the first doll photoshoot I ever did xD Her style changed a lot, she is currently wearing the black wig and floral shirt.[​IMG][​IMG]

    8. I still have my first doll and I’m glad I do! She’s a Dollzone Shoyo I got back in 2011 and she’s adorable. She has a unique “dollness” to her that most newer dolls don’t have anymore. So sure she can’t pose well with her single joints and she’s a little yellowed (it’s not too bad) but she’s with me forever!

    9. My first doll is no longer with me. I sold her years ago in the Marketplace & have no idea where she is now. She was an Elfdoll Lydia which I got when she was first issued. Eventually I enhanced her face-up & fell in love all over again. But I was headed in a more controlled direction & she wasn't quite right so she left home.
