Doll extras collections

Jul 16, 2019

    1. Do you have collections of items that aren't necessarily related to any dolls you currently have or stories or plans you have for them? I could be really tempted to build a wig collection as I just love so many of them! What's your extra temptation beyond what your dolls need?

    2. Furniture and props, I have so many of both, and every time I go out, I always looks for them something else. They have so much furniture, enough to fill a bjd house if I had one for them, and even outdoor camping and picnic stuff. I also love food props the have a whole freezer bag just full of food props.

      What I need to do is spend money on some nice tops for them, I sew decent pants and skirts, but my shirts are not so great, they could use some clothes rather then --- hey, look, cute doll pillow! :roll:

    3. Oh, yes, furniture and accessories, one never has enough. I've been collecting those longer then BJDs, but now it is
      an extra challenge to find those pieces for the 1/3 size that are most of my BJDs.

    4. Eyes probably. I always get them with a doll in mind, but they don't always work out so I have extras. Also I have built up a fabric and yarn stash to make them clothes.

    5. I have a doll-clothes fabric stockpile too. I have plans for some of it, but there's more than I can use of some of it. There's also quite a bit of doll-sized decorative things like tiny vases and statues.

    6. My extras are usually from former dolls. Items I love, but don't fit any of my current dolls, but I like them too much to let go. Mostly custom t-shirts and formal wear.

    7. Toys, furniture, and shoes. Even though shoes are a pain to shop for lol.

    8. Doll-scale dishes and food items that are thematically appropriate for the world they live in! I also seem to be accumulating eyes and miscellaneous resin bits (like extra hands and alternative flat/heeled feet), though those ones seem more like a side thing. I don't go out of my way to get them (unless I don't have ones suitable for a specific character) but also seem reluctant to sell them...

      It's part laziness and part just not wanting to set something for sale for a few bucks when the shipping from Finland is relatively expensive anyways...

      Oh, and extra clothes that I enjoy but can't be bothered to sell/don't feel it's worth it for the shipping reason/could be used by a doll if I want to change their clothes about. I currently have a bag full of extra clothes... D:

    9. I love collecting wigs that do not match my dolls. I never know what I want a doll to look like when I get them so having a box of extra wigs lets me try on a variety of styles and colors until I find the one that I would like to order. Usually the ones in the box are oddly not the ones they end up wearing. The ones in the box tend to just be place holders and/or style guilds which give me a better idea of what wig I would like to order for a particular doll.

    10. FURNITURE :O it is giant and obnoxious but the pics taken with furniture are so nice... I have two boys, tons of furniture, and ONE chair that they 'fight' over.

    11. Eyes and hair for wigs. I tend to buy interesting and unusual eyes even despite they aren't for any of my dolls or these I'm planning. Fibres and yarn for hair are simmilar cause. Well...fabrics, these too. Unfortunatelly, they take up more space than eyes, it's starting to be a problem.

    13. This is me. I also collect props, especially food and school supplies. I have enough boxes of fabric and doll things, that they double as a cat tower.
