First of all, I would like to say that I thought up this question because I can't think of any more excuses to tell my family why I want a BJD. Hopefully, if I tell them that it might help my future job, maybe they'll finally leave me alone and quit giving me those ridiculous "Are you serious? Why would a girl your age still be interested in buying dolls?" stares at me. Plus, it seems interesting to hear from owners how they use their BJDs in the work field, if they use them at all, that is The questions- Does owning BJDs help you with your job(s) in real life? Does it help enhance your abilities for that job/hobby/activity? If so, what kind of job/hobby/activity is it? The following question below is targeted mainly for those who do or have done faceups. Do you think doing face-ups help you become better at doing makeup for people in real life? Would you say that it would greatly help any beauticians in training? If so, then I have FINALLY found an excuse not even my family will reject! Thank you very much in advance for all who answers! Your time and answers are most appreciated!
